'Tis a well known fact... [In reply to] Can't Post

...that such scarlet and green gouts of dragonfire are due to the selective consumption of the minerals celestine and barite by said specimens of Draco ignis. A subtype of P-glycoprotein in Draco ignis' upper gastrointestinal tract selectively sequesters strontium and barium salts, extracted from celestine and barite, respectively, into specialized glands. Upon ignition, resulting from draconic epithelial cells packed with extraordinarily exothermic mitochondria, the gut-derived methane is colored scarlet and green.*

Or these colorful flames could be attributed to Magic. Wink

*Strontium and barium salts are used in our primary world to color fireworks.Smile



A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature. ~~ Henry David Thoreau
