alurianknight Posted August 19, 2011 Report Share Posted August 19, 2011 This topic is to discuss and question the nature of dragons in the universe of Academagia and how it could affect any possible future interactions between dragons and the player. Background: From what I've been able to glean from various adventures and Lore texts dragons in Academagia are viewed by humanity as vile and evil creatures that are the bane of humanity and are even used as bedside tales to frighten naughty children. This is because at sometime in humanities distant past dragons enslaved humanity for a very long time (am uncertain how long) until humanity eventually revolted and after a long hard fought war gained its freedom. note: I am uncertain as to the exact nature of the dragons enslavement of humanity it would be much appreciated if someone could elaborate on the topic. Also its almost impossible to find any useful or specific information on a given topic in the lore texts due to poor organization and that really needs to be fixed. So my question is are dragons really as evil and dastardly as the available sources of information imply? I am inclined to believe that they are not. My line of reason for this is that if you really get right down to it the dragons haven't done anything that humans wouldn't and haven't done consistently to other creatures. humans have been enslaving other living thing since they lived in caves the only difference is that we call it domestication not enslavement and claim that domesticated animals living longer and easier lives under our care and for the most part this is true. My belief is that the dragons may vary well have seen their enslavement of humanity as nothing more than domestication of an inferior creature no different than how we see cows or sheep. However since then humanity has become more advanced and has proven that even if they aren't equal to dragons they can at least hold there own against them. thereby possibly causing some dragons to view humans as more than simply stray cattle. So if this is true then it may very well be the possible for interactions between player and dragons that don't involve slaying and may even be very polite cordial and even intellectual.
