The Glasshouse of Slyth

by Robin

These are the maps of The glasshouse of Slyth, This is an adventure I created myself somewhere in the 80ties. Slyth Slaggash is a Ruby Draggon of Medium Size, but 99% in the alias of a friendly Red lizardmen wokani. it does not follow the dragon pyramid of power, and mostly keeps in hiding or under alias. It does follow the other Dragon circle requirements though, that it thus slows its growth due not following the pyramid of power does not matter the dragon (it falls as of yet (1010 AC under no other dragon Rule, and only the Gold Dragon in Eastshire of the 5 Shires is aware of its existence as a dragon. Slyth is a avid collector of Plants and its "glasshouse"is a collection of hundreds so not thousands of dangerous and unknown plants.
The building is known/accepted by any local druid(and many many more beyond), and regularly visited as a study area for them.

Several of the maps are isometric and all are normal are between 2-991 AC and 1001 AC

There is some water and mice damage. So this is the best way to save them.

The Glasshouse' location can be found in the right mid section of this map
