Freeing the Dragon
On Freeing the Dragon -
The Dragon can only be freed by the Power of the Spider, or the Spider's death, the total plundering of His realm, or other unambiguous sign that His power over the Dragon is broken. Having now seen the Dragon's bonds, the Unbinder can determine if any particular plan is likely to meet these criteria.
Here are some things we've considered:
- Plundering the Imperial Treasury: The Hidden City is arguably Spider's realm, in the way each Cycle Spirit has one kingdom. We'd need the plundering to be truly kingdom-wide, so we'd actually have to do all of these:
- Loot the Imperial Treasury
- Shut down the Hidden City bribery mechanic
- Remove the magic nature of the Tael (Shen-Ji got a ritual outline or a ritual for this on the 5/12/12 run)
