“ Imagine a person wearing a cloak of invisibility flying a flying beast (e.g. winged horse, gryphon) which was also wearing a cloak of invisibility.”
“ There are more ways than one to encounter a dragon. With a low level group it's obviously not feasible to meet one in its lair and fight it. But standing on a bleak moorland, utterly exposed and vulnerable, it can be a chilling experience to see something flying far far overhead. Something that could just be an eagle, but you never know...”
