Erosion

Many years ago, a fearsome dragon terrorised the land. The dragon had a hunger that could not be sated. It ate the livestock, the wildlife, and even, on occasion, the children. After a particularly brutal attack, the villagers decided it was time to take action.

The dragon plummeted to earth with a mighty thud. Taking its last shuddering breath, it crashed into the land and sea. Waves settled over its powerful body and it came to rest.
