After You Slay The Dragon, What Happens to the Remains?

After You Slay The Dragon, What Happens to the Remains?

I found the answer to this burning question! Rather than let the giant dragon corpses pile-up and pollute the countryside, there is a great new service for adventurers: Dragon Disposal!

Worst Movie Monster Reveal Ever!

Worst Movie Monster Reveal Ever!
