You are a dragon slayer of the realm. You’ve only finished your training a few months ago and have gotten very little action beyond the occasional battle with an ogre or troll. Finally you can get your hands wet, as you have recently been hired to do away with a draconic menace to a nearby town. An old red dragon has taken up residence outside of the village. It’s taken habit of coming twice a month demanding a virgin of their women and a herd of livestock as food.
It has come upon the day for the next visit from the dragon. During the cloudless morning you have some time to get prepared. How do you proceed?
