Q: How do you take care of the dragon?

This one drove me nuts for weeks, and I really felt stupid when a friend of mine (Hi Jim!) finally figured it out. All you need to do is type kill dragon.

I can just imagine your objection: "I tried that. It just tells me, 'What with? Your bare hands?'


That is, all you do at that point is type yes. Don't you feel foolish now? I sure did.
