This is a page from my Monsters Here & There book [I have an online preview of it at my monster website - [link] ]. In 1349 CE, a knight named Gorzione was hired by the governemnt of the island of Rhodes to rid them of a troublesome critter... a dragon. Despite being beaten badly, and being horribly sickened by the poison the beast was exhailing, Gorzione managed to win the day and took home a hefty paycheck. Is it true? There's no one to ask about that now!
