Instructions for Lee's Dragon armour:
The first step be-ith the chainmail underlayer. Thy art required only to simply drape the cloth over thine dragon's back, however thy must be most assured the correct way is up. The smooth side without the buckles is the underside. Then thy must (with most care) connect the leather straps on the underside of thine dragon. Must luck with this hast been found during the feeding of the dragon. However, dispite this, it would still be recommended to send-eth a quire or peasant, rather then attempt this yourself. Many-a-men has been found to be unable to complete this task, and it would be a great shame were this to happen to yourself.
After thy have secured the mail, thy will find many places where plates could be attached. Each plate is graced with a number, thy must start at the tip of the tail and wor thine way upwards. During this time, thy dragon may sweep it tail with mortal consiquences. Thy must also excert most caution when plating the legs, for one may stomp you. Once you reach the forward shoulders, thy dragon's mouth may reach, so make sure it's head is firmly secured before attempting this. Finally, the main plate is secured extra well, with additonal straps needed.
Once thine dragon is properly amroured, thy might think of testing the newly aquired armour. I must strongly DIS-ADVICE this practise. I assure you that it is perfectly fine, and each set has been thoroughly tested and found flawless. Thy must also not try to ride thine dragon without the proper neck protection, the dragon has been known to snap it's head backwards and devour it's rider.
If thy follow these instructions, thy will have longlasting pleasure of thy dragon.
