Steve: The provisions chapter in Synnibarr is one of my favorites. You've got like rope and a lantern and then later in the chapter are spaceships and missiles that can destroy everything in a 25-mile radius.
Zack: "Yes, I will take one mule, a length of twine, two cups of oats and a missile that can destroy a city."
Steve: You can also be a dwarf who buys a rail gun to fight a were dragon.
Zack: So if a dragon bites you then you turn into a dragon?
Steve: No, if a were dragon bites you then you turn into a were dragon.
Zack: What if the dwarf is bit by the were dragon on board his spaceship? Would he turn into a dwarf were dragon?
Steve: There are no rules for dwarf were dragons so I guess I would say you die.
