So far you’ve heard mostly from me on Dragons. But the literature is vast, broad, and deep with Heroes who have gone before. Let us now begin with the Sage of Treasure, Solomon.
He may not often be thought of in connection with Dragons: in truth, his father is far more famous for a Kill. But to the son was granted a double-portion of Wisdom and his record on Treasure is unparalleled, including but going far beyond the magnificent Houses he built to bring together the religious, civic, political, and military in his day, drawing celebrity guests from around the world.
His Wisdom is not just valuable for the task at hand: it also sheds light on what newer Heroes may call the “meta”, the question-behind-the-question, the philosophy of it all. He, in fact, provides justification for why his Ancient Wisdom still works… and it is not only because Ancient Dragons still walk the Earth.
