Posted by Master of Drankgons on

"An Eborsisk, by the gods! Kill it! Forget the man! Slay the beast before it breathes!"  —General Kael, in Willow, the novel Willow is an amazing movie from 1988 that was written by George Lucas. Val Kilmer was in this movie. Seriously, it's a gem if you haven't seen it, and it was one of my favorite movies as a kid. The two-headed dragon-creature from this movie terrified me. Looking back at this photo, I can still see why. Apparently, the dragon's name was Eborsisk, which is lamely a reference to the movie critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel.  Word from director...

DGT #23: Charizard (Pokemon)

Posted by Master of Drankgons on

I have been holding off on profiling a Pokémon, but with the recent domination of Pokémon Go, I cannot wait any longer. It's time for Charizard to make his debut. An orange, draconic Pokémon, Charizard is the evolved form of Charmeleon, which is the evolved form of Charmander.
