The Dragon Challenge

Back in 2006, I determined that there were not enough dragons in Popslash.
Happily, there was something I could do to remedy the deficiency, and the D-Day Dragon Challenge was born.
Sign-ups open on St George's Day (23rd April) and stories are revealed on D-Day, ie 6th June, which happens to be my birthday.
