Valryke is a fairly young green dragon who styles himself as the Emerald Death. He has been harrassing travelers on the Crownway between Seowyn’s Crossing and Barwych. He has been responsible for livestock poaching, banditry against caravans, quite a bit of destruction, and most recently out and out killing as he attempts to carve out a reputation and a hoard for himself.
Baron Kadran Greenfields went on a tour of his barony of Silver Falls, ending his journey in Barwych, so he could assess the dragon situation properly. Upon his return to Seowyn’s Crossing he asked the Fire Wasps to deal with this problem. It may be guessed that he’ll offer a handsome reward beyond simple salvage of whatever treasures may be found in the dragon’s hoard.
