For millennia dragons have raided and pillaged human villages for gold. Lately, however, they’ve heard of something called ‘wages’ where humans will just GIVE them gold for doing jobs.

Capitalism saves the day.

“You mean instead of spending an hour burning down the entire village and maybe stealing 100 gold pieces. All you want me to do is just spend 10 minutes lightly breathing under the forges and you’ll give me 25 pieces each week just like that?”

“Every week”

“How will you afford this?”

“Well we wont have to rebuild the village once a month for starters”
