On the road you meet... a fiery fire dragon!
The mighty Xeatoxx is not some random encounter without purpose. He, though he is the last to admit, has a serious problem.
While camping after a long flight, his little boy discovered a hole and was dragged inside by some spider-creature. Brave as his Daddy is, he scorched that thing with his fire (and sure was Daddy glad to see that!). But now he cannot climb from the hole - it is digged in earth, and the tunnel upwards is too tight to fly through. The mighty dragon is not the smartest one and is afraid of injuring his only baby.
... time for some silly twolegged humanoids to appear!
The heroes should not be powerful enough to easily defeat such an enemy, but that is rarely a problem.
Xeatoxx will most probably scare them (being an old dragon tradition :-) and has quite a problem with telling that HE needs help. Once this is clear, the humanoids will help him (kindly asking is not an option) and are left to their own devices to free the little dragon.
Father will oversee the operation and help if needed or poke them a bit if nothing seems to be going on. He is not inherently evil , but having a little fun is OK.
The reward may be some treasure in the creature's lair and such an unsure and unstable thing like ... the favour of a dragon .

Any reasonable plan should work but keep in mind that his little boy is quite heavy.
NOTE: Father doesn't want to look helpless to his little boy and the humanoids should appear as mere tools to take care of the dirty work of his own great plan.
Now in the movies: Vychan the Flamespewer. With a little travelling in time, you see will what happened to the small baby-dragon. Dragons and humans working together! See it now, or order the DVD!
Hm, I think there used to be more comments here... anyway, thanks for the Bump!
Another nice simple plot - straightforward, though may not line up with ones views on dragons.
I agree with valadaar, though I think that is part of the charm of the submission. I like how usable it is in that you can just plop it anywhere so long as it thematically fits the game. I also like that it is a short submission, I feel those are underappreciated.
