DM’s Note: This book calls into question the age of the Majestic Blue Dragon of the Thunder Lands. As written, he is depicted as being Old at the time of the books creation, but in the current year, he is believed to be only Very Old. Does this mean that Thunderback is actually Ancient, or even older?
