Burn the Treasure Map

We would all like to be able to follow a treasure map. You know, sail 3 miles east, four miles north, find the forked tree, take 17 steps south-east and X marks the spot.

Dragon Hunts don’t work like that.

Dragon Hunts are more like, sail 3 miles east, realize you’ve been going west, carry out a course correction, sail 7 miles east, hit rocks, sink. Then, build a new boat, eventually get to the island that is supposed to have the forked tree, find the island has been ravaged by fire and no trees are left, forked or otherwise. So you just start digging everywhere and hope like hell you’ll hit gold.
