“Merlin, your immediate presence is requested on the east wall.”

The Antediluvian Horror has reached Camelot:

'Call out the archers - Satan's own beast marches on us!'

'Call out the archers - Satan's own beast marches on us!'

Galahad and the men of Camelot can take comfort in the fact that the bacterial bite of Komodo dragons has recently been proven to not be so harmful as previously thought. (The newly-discovered venom, however, is rather nasty.)

    That is so badass. Where exactly did that come from? Conjured up by a sorcerer?

      I don’t quite know. I hadn’t been following the story until the image last week caught my eye. Sir Galahad had led some knights out to look into reports of a dragon thinking it would be no big deal and ran into this beast. What brought it out and onto the rampage I don’t know.
