We’re starting my nephew on his first RPG campaign. He developed the world with his other uncle and made his character. The world is very dragon-heavy, because that’s what my nephew likes. So, of course, he wants a dragon of his own. And this conversation rolls out:

Nephew: I want to find a dragon egg, hatch it, and raise the dragon as my own.

Uncle: That’s understandable, but you know that once the dragon reaches juvenile age, it’s going to become sentient. It’s going to be a person. You can’t buy and sell people.

Nephew: What about orphanages?

Uncle (holding back laughter): Let me explain administrative costs.
