In a strange world (name?) where lands float in the air (ala realm of
air from deathgate), an emperor launched an attack on the other
countries. The hero is the leader of the "Dragon riders" of the last
country to be attacked. The emperor attacked this country the last
because of the legend that the greatest and most powerful dragon will
come when the country is in crisis. The dragon riders attack, and lost,
and the country was taken over, along with the princess. She and the
hero are lovers. Well, after some time, the hero returns from his
dissapearence (he dissapeared after the battle) and forms the rebellion,
and tries to rescue the princess.

how the player "feeds" different things to the dragons, ie. used armor,
potions, weapons, items etc. and they add or decrease the dragons'
attributes. Another is the dragons cannot be controlled by the player.
The player controls the dragons buy 3 commands: Follow and do not
attack, follow and attack enemies in range, and free attack. The dragons
react according to their attributes, like if it's intelligence is good,
it would avoid poisonous areas on the map when moving and hit the enemy
at where they're weakest (hate it when the enemy is of element lightning
and the dragon cast lightning and HEALS it). Other attributes are like
elements, which controls what type of attack the dragon uses, and normal
attacks(claws and teeth!) and defense etc. Oh, BTW, the dragons change
