The legend of the Knights and the dragon

The legend starts in the heather lands where 9 local men decided to unite and free the population from the dragon Fashoom, which was ferociously guarding the only drinking water source of the village. They fought fiercely for days and succeeded, with the help of children, to push him away...

This vengeful dragon does come back once a year to strip the villagers of their possessions. 45 knights, supported by their wives and children, vanquish every single time.
