Chronicles of the Dragon Cave from A to Z: "T" is for Thermal Pool and Tossing the Dwarf
You can't swim today because there is no life guard. We are all off on our minion duty and this is just a recorded message. However, you may schedule a visit after the challenge.
If you do so, you will also be able to learn a unique sport practiced at the Cave: Toss the Dwarf. You pick up a dwarf and toss him as far as you can.
In the beginning, Father Dragon used to toss them over the treasure, but they didn't bounce well. Now they are tossed into the pool.
(Please do not try this with your dwarves at home. We are all professionals here.)
The Master's research proves tossing dwarves is both therapeutic and good for health. It helps stress, strengthens muscles and improves oxygenation; not to mention the added value of clean dwarves. The cave is hosting the First Toss the Dwarf Championship next year. The only requirement is for competitors to bring their own dwarf, duly approved and certified for tossing.
The highest record of Dwarf Tossing in the human category belongs to Sir Jeff Hargett, at Strands of Pattern. You can see him in this picture during his first training session. Some say it was him who gave the Master the idea to make a sport of this. I am not authorized to deny or confirm that rumor. Yet, Sir Jeff did send a picture that gave Father Dragon *that* look on his face when he is up to something.
