-In many cultures, the moon [[zioth:​world:​moons#​zabrigar|Zabrigar]] is linked to dragons. They are said to keep time by it.

-High Mage Fovery: "​Dragons are not magi, but they are able to influence the natural world in unique ways. We call these Dragonspells... The dragon left him there until Belazan found him and brought him back to [[:​zioth:​place:​brundash|Brundash]]. But soon he developed pocks on his skin, which didn't go away. He had fever dreams where he overcame horrible monsters using magic. But while the monsters were just figments, the magic was real. We had to bring him here to keep everyone else safe."​{{zioth>​t,​216}}+High Mage Fovery: "​Dragons are not magi, but they are able to influence the natural world in unique ways.

 Reinath: "You ask the madman for his story, you'll get a mad story. I was going after the dragon we call Fderfollareie – its true name takes more than a minute to pronounce. It was a wild creature, twenty feet long from horns to tail, with a wingspan half again as long as its body, wings thin enough to be almost transparent,​ and lightly feathered at the edges. Its body displayed all the colors of the rainbow, but as a darkened, shimmering sheen, and the air around it was like fading smoke, giving it the appearance of something that wasn't quite there."​ Rainath was looking past Halaren, into the imagined distance, as if the creature was in the room with them. Halaren couldn'​t help but glance over his shoulder. "I wanted to tame it, and ride it. It's been done before, people say – I still don't really know if it's possible – but I tried anyway. With a dragon, you have to start with a contest of wills. You don't even need magic, but it helps. You just stare into its lidless, fiery eyes and assert control. Reinath: "You ask the madman for his story, you'll get a mad story.
