If You try to Apprehend a Dragon - You deserve what You get - Same with trying to illegally detain a NRA member - Let there be no doubt - I support #2A & The NRA

Dragonsbane, by Barbara Hambly

One Good Knight, by Mercedes Lackey
———————————
How To Destroy A Dragon Scale
(according to Mercedes Lackey)

1. Soak the scale in vinegar for two or three days
2. Dry it out completely — takes three or four more days
3. Pound it to tiny bits with a large hammer

This procedure is much easier if the scale is not still on the dragon.

That comment needs to go to the "Guns, Guns, Guns" topic in Politics.
Before it does I'll ask one question. If the police decide to arrest you, and you believe that they shouldn't, do you then pull out a gun and shoot them? That's going to end well.

Actually, Nimitz is gone.
His account no longer exists.
He was crunchy and tasted good with ketchup....
Oh, wait. Sorry, he got hammered by a Duckk, not a dragon...

Love me some Dragon fantasy so I'll check Melanie Rawn for sure. Haven't heard of her before so cheers for making me aware of her works. Right now I'm reading the second book of the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. Couldn't recommend it more to lovers of fantasy.
