This is the Declaration of Dragon Sentiments for the newly formed Society of Enlightened Dragonologists. We will soon be opening this up for membership, which of course.. will be free. No self-respecting dragonologist would take money to advance the knowledge of our craft.
When in the course of universal dragon events, it becomes necessary to point out the arrogance and audacity of belief that man of earth is the only species of sentient beings; an organization must be formed to correct this deficiency in humility and knowledge. A decent respect to the natures of dragons throughout the universe requires that they should declare the causes that impel them to such a course.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all dragons are not created equally; Some breathe fire, have magic and are endowed with differing magical abilitiess. They are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of undomesticated prey. Whenever any form of government or knightly band becomes destructive of these rights, it is the right of those who suffer from it to refuse allegiance to it and to defend themselves be it by magic or fire.
Let these facts be submitted to the world:
Ancient dragons can fold time and space if they choose.
Dragons are scattered throughout the universe and due to this planetary division may differ in size, weapons and magical skills.
Dragons are as different in look and personality as man is in color of hair and language.
Dragons are intelligent and self aware.
