                    I thought Sam’s insight checks were just for laughs. I realize he wad playing Nott’s racism/over generalized parinoia of Asimar

                                        Matt had at least 5 NPCs explain that they don't have to, and probably shouldn't, try to kill the dragon in order to complete their goals. Which means they obviously will all die trying to kill the dragon.

                                          U know. You never notice it until you notice but us Humans use the word Um or uh alot xD ik they're filler words but damn I cant stop hearing them say it

                                            CaptainRyan18 random linguistic fun, but “um” isn’t used in all languages. For instance, when I lived in Laos for two years I tried to learn the local habit of saying something that sounded like “ing-young-guk” when I needed to think. “Ummmm” was a foreigner thing.

                                            Strangely after much discussion about "auditors", the dragon was found to be an ancient evil demi-god who hungers for souls pretending to be a dragon.🤣

Silver dragons seem less likely to murder and eat you, even if they choose not to blow cold air on your mithral. It just seems safer all around. Maybe consult a thaumaturgical metallurgist?
