Ancient Dragon's Library with fan fiction, stories, poems, collection of jokes and anecdotes, wise quotes.
Library
Dragons are not only rich (by human standards), they are wise too. You ought to be to live thousands of years or you'd be killed by the first bunch of Dragon Slayers, okay, by the second, at the most.
That's why I have followed the example of my elders and compiled my own library.
Here you can find different things: wise and clever phrases and quotes, funny stuff, jokes and anecdotes, riddles. Something for every mood and every day. You'll find some jokes about characters from Heroes and Might and Magic.
Special place for fan fiction stories and poems.
The Library has been updating regularly in all sections, including new fan fiction works.

to submit your work, you are  very welcomed. Your rights are always protected and respected here.

Gallery

As you probably know the Dragons are very fond of collecting fine, beautiful, precious and expensive things. Among other treasures I like to collect pictures, Dragons' & other creatures' images.
I think I have pretty good gallery of Dragons images here (360 pictures).
A lot of animated pictures and original screenshots from Might and Magic (400+ images).
Galleries of the wonderful fantasy artists - Anry, Larry Elmore and Kevin Palivec. 
Special Fantasy pictures gallery (100+).

The great collection of the animated fantasy creatures that is better to be seen than to be described
Animations
Perhaps the best collection of the highest quality animated fantasy  creatures on the web.
See for yourself: mages and sorcerers, dragons and wyverns, dwarves and elves, crusaders and monks, vampires and skeletons, liches and queen of the dead, centaurs and unicorns, manticores and minotaurs.
The list is going on... Some of them you have never seen and maybe even never heard of.
But better one time to see than thousand times to read.
All these great animated personages are moving in their natural environment - on screenshots from their world - Might and Magic PC games series.
Big collection of fire-related animations, candles, torches and fires.
and special page with Cool Animations.
Cool Malathar Dragon animations by Kevin Palivec.
