As I sit here and mess around with this blog of mine (something that is proving to be very educational and frustrating at the same time), it occurred to me that some of you might be wondering why I misspelled the word ‘cruel’ in the title of my blog.  Well, I didn’t make a typo, and yes, the way I spell the word was done on purpose.  A kruel is simply the term for a group of dragons (in my invented world of Ethoes and Oescienne at least).  Just as you have a school of fish or a murder of crows, in Oescienne you’d have a kruel of dragons.  So, there you have it.  A simple explanation that I hope clears things up a bit.  Oh yes, and it was meant to be a play on words :) .
