Dragon meat. It's for dinner.
In the town of Bolopsy lives a humble butcher, Nogdo, who's quietly making a fortune selling dragon meat. But when the town’s children start growing black dragon scales, Nogdo is horrified. The source of his new fortune is cursed. He wipes dragon meat off the menu and hopes the problem goes away on its own.
Now that his youngest son is growing black scales, Nogdo will stop at nothing to find the cure. During his quest, he will have to deal with vengeful dragons, a recluse wizard, and a band of barbaric hunters if he is ever to return home—and being alive at the end could just be asking too much
