Appreciate a Dragon Day is dedicated to acknowledging the cultural importance of dragons throughout history. The dragon is commonly revered as a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it.
Can you slay today's dragon to be worthy of its strength?
The center of this labyrinth contains the dreaded dragon Höttebreth, who has long guarded the vast treasure stored in his lair, much to the chagrin of the local villagers. Fortunately for them, you, valiant dragon-slayer, have come to their aid. Since Höttebreth is particularly fierce and you, alas, are but a novice at dragon-slaying, you’ll need the help of the four magic swords placed strategically throughout the maze. The magic of each sword is so potent that the sword must always be approached from the hilt and not the point. To defeat Höttebreth, you must enter the maze from one of the three entrances, collect the four swords, and reach the dragon’s central lair, all without retracing your path. Have you the cunning to claim the dragon’s gold?
