Oh! Oh, how divine! How sublime! This steaming broth of comfort, all mine!
You might think dragon scales to be hardened and calloused, but it’s best to keep them smooth and supple. They’re still hard enough to keep claws and teeth at bay, but soft enough to live in, soft enough to bend and flex, soft enough to shed and refresh. Would you want to walk around covered in shards of stone, or slices of metal?
These warm mud pools are an excellent way to deep clean the scales without loosening or damaging them. And they’re so nice to sit in! It’s like flying in gentle sunny winds without all the effort of flying, and it’s great fun to let the mud dry and shake it off later. Sometimes these pools can be a little… stinky, but a quick roll in some herbs will sort that out.
