Ooohhh, maybe Narnarra is a dragon? Slain by Orlanth or one of his sons, and Aringor brought it back? Typical LBQ, that: "Well, it was an enemy at the time and deserved to get killed, but in the long run we kinda need it around so let's bring it back."

If Aringor is from Lankst, I'm curious why his people would need help against the Shadow Empire. I thought Lankst was the _seat_ of the Shadow Empire. Are you suggesting that said empire eventually became so corrupt that it began oppressing its own core population? That would be just like them...
