Must keep this a secret.Phex 4thWorried about the treasure’s security. Local tales speak of crafty moles in these parts. Need a solid plan to protect my newfound wealth.Phex 10thHeard a merchant talk about dragon eggs. A wild idea: what if I raise a dragon to guard the treasure? Surely, no mole would dare then!Phex 15thAcquired a dragon egg from a wandering trader. It’s surprisingly warm to the touch. Now, the waiting begins.Tsa 2ndThe egg is showing signs of hatching! I’ve prepared a small area in the treasure cave for the hatchling.Tsa 3rdA baby dragon has emerged! Never seen a creature so small yet so majestic. I’ve named it Ember.Tsa 20thEmber is growing rapidly, already the size of a small dog. Has a curious fascination with shiny objects. Keeping her away from the treasure is a challenge.Peraine 10thThe moles made their first attempt last night. Ember scared them off with a tiny puff of fire. Good dragon!Rahja 1stEmber’s appetite is increasing. Finding enough food is becoming a daily struggle. Who knew dragons ate so much?Praios 15thEmber is now big enough to patrol the cave. She roars at shadows and chases her tail. Quite the guardian she’s turning out to be.Rondra 8thHad to expand the cave entrance. Ember’s wings are getting huge, and she loves to stretch them. The regulars at the inn are starting to ask questions.Efferd 21stThe moles tried again. Ember chased them through the tunnels.

Considering charging a viewing fee.Firun 24thAs the year ends, I’m grateful for Ember’s presence. She’s more than a guardian; she’s become a friend. Here’s to many more years with my dragon!Day 1:Ye olde laboratory be abuzz with excitement as I embark upon me latest alchemical endeavors. Mixing powdered moonstone with dragon tears, hoping to concoct a potion to enhance me bearded brilliance.Day 5:Foul odours now fill the chamber as me attempts to transmute lead into gold have met with naught but failure. Note to self: invest in stronger ventilation.Day 10:The local townsfolk be gossiping about strange lights emanating from me tower. Rumours of a phantom brewer spread, but let them talk – I shall create the elixir of enlightenment!Day 15:Success! A brew of bubbling brilliance, though it did turn me pet newt into a rather lively mushroom. A small sacrifice for the greater good, I reckon.Day 20:Experimenting with enchanted fungi yielded unexpected results. Me beard now possesses the ability to predict the weather. A useful trait for any respectable dwarf.Day 25:Had a run-in with the town guard after me animated broom wreaked havoc in the marketplace. Perhaps imbuing it with a sense of restraint would be wise.Day 30:In me quest for alchemical mastery, the tower is now a chaotic symphony of oddities. Animated furniture, floating candles, and a talking cauldron - me eccentricities know no bounds. Onwards to the next concoction!
