This post details the first recorded discovery of a dragon graveyard in Mitgardian history (and the entire realm of Historica), as well as the history of the Buraindo and their first settlement. (This is my entry for the Mitgardian lore mini-challenge)

Centuries ago, a group of Avalonian druids split off from the rest of their group, since they felt the Avalonian druids had started misusing their powers to change nature, instead of changing themselves. By trying to alter nature to suit human needs, they had disrupted the balance of the world. This group believed that human power should be directed to improve themselves and to become one with nature, instead of trying to change the world for the better of men. Seeking a new home, the druids turned to Mitgardia in search of a purer experience of nature.
When the first group of Avalonian druids entered the Mitgardian mountain realm, rebelling against the corrupted ideals of the other druids, they were awed by the unyielding mountains and the adaptive powers of the more temporal elements of nature around it.
They wandered the lands for years, looking for their new home, and found that Mitgardia presented them with the challenges they had come to seek out to sharpen their own physical, mental and magical prowess.
After 21 years of crossing the frozen lands, the druids, who called themselves the Sorekeru (The Ones who Refused), had experienced the breadth of the continent and wanted to settle in a nexus of energies and explore the depths of the land’s power.
On the first day of spring, the group came upon a waterfall that had been frozen solid during the winter. In places, the water had started to trickle down again. Inspired by the beauty of the scene, the monks sat down to meditate and explore the energies around them.

After a few minutes, the ice on the edge of the mountainside started to crack and with a thunderous crash, the avalanche uncovered the skull of an enormous dragon, frozen into the mountainside.

All the druids then realised they had taken a new step towards their ideal and decided to start their settlement at that new sacred place. It turned out they had found a dragon graveyard, a place where the dragons rested, so deep away from the world’s meddlesome inhabitants (Orcs, dwarfs, humans, looking for the precious dragon bones) that had never found them.

Inspired by this discovery, the Sorekeru renamed themselves the Buraindo (Rocks buried in Snow and Ice) and created their first ritualised test of strength – to sit through an entire winter of Mitgardia without moving outside a small circle and without any alien nourishment. The ritual was named after the dragon’s bones: Juukotsu Ryuujin.

Nice use of the windshields for water flows simple but effective, good job on the dragon skull too, and the characters are cool.  I do like things to do with magic.

Sometimes necessity calls for simple solutions... I just didn't have enough transparent bricks! Glad you like it.
