Whereas, during the dark ages, dragons are known to have had a reputation for purposes that were evil and violent, they did in fact provide a very necessary service of protection and defence, for which they were amply rewarded by the protected - a situation not unknown in Chicago in more recent times.

However, at the Concordat of Worms (n.b. It is essential to bear in mind that only dragons may call each other 'worm'. Others do so at their peril.) which was held in the year 984BN (before Nog-time), the Meeting felt that sufficient material treasure, had been amassed for any conceivable purpose. It therefore resolved that a DRAGONS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY be formed and that the treasure should be placed in cold storage. A Treasurer was sought and naturally the post fell to Grolliffe, partly because, being that rare figment, an Ice Dragon, he would relish the environment, and partly on account of his laziness which in his case amounted to a staunch preference for sleep rather than wakeful activity.

During the last century Grolliffe's admirable slumber has been considerably disturbed by the scraping of electronic internetting, and consequently the possibility of his reawakening has increased. To avoid this the Concordat has reconvened and the following action has been taken: the cold cave has been, as it is now said, 'screened'. A new, mortal, but fully accredited DRAGONS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY has been formed to attend to the recognised human interest in related matters.

For this institution the post of Treasurer has fallen to a latter-day honorary dragon by the name of Loaf (of Liverpool).
