Briliant. I'd completely forgotten that one. But then my KoDP clan hates Dragons of any persuasion Well apart from the Thunderbeasts which are OBVIOUSLY a gift from the Earthmother to crush our enemies underfoot (literaly)

I suspect such flexible pragmatisim is what got the Orlanthi mixed up with Dragonkind in the 1st place.

But reguarding thon picture did Greg reguard it as a scene from

A. The EWF capitol
B. Any big EWF city
C. A tribal center
D. could be from any clan village

ok I suspect not D. but would guess at least B/C. with significant structures scattered around tribal lands depending on how thick the veneer.
The buildings in view look to be well in advance of what the Heortlings normaly build (ignoring Sartars Walls/Roads etc)

Were these built.

A. By dragonnewts alone.
B. Under newt guidence.
C. "We had some pointers at first but we've got the hang of it now &

    they don't fall down anymore!"
D. "Have you see Joe Stickpickers fine new swirly Tower in the latest

    blue crested waltsing style?"
