The king probably gave a token shit. Like, "Dragon has kidnapped so-and-so, who I understand is my subject. I am willing to give [amount much less than dragonslaying is worth] so that my people can be safe."

In real life (or at least, in 1300s France), the monarch was considered to be the wonderful ruler of the realm who cared deeply for his subjects. Any abuse against the peasantry was considered to be the product of the corrupt aristocracy, who oppressed the lower class for their own profit against the King's wishes.

This wasn't really true, but people believed it. Of the many peasant uprisings in that era, most of them sought to depose the Aristocracy and keep the King.

Yes.

Honestly, what do you think most adventurers do with their money? In DnD,your average mid-level adventurer can earn enough gold with but a few quests to live comfortably for the rest of his life (assuming standard human lifespan). A high-level adventurer has probably seen more gold flow through his hands then some kings. Of course, a lot of that goes into magical items, but there's still plenty left for a seriously comfortable lifestyle.

Any financially savvy characters will probably figure out they will earn even more (and gain a more stabel income) by actually investing that money in stuff, make it work for them. For instance, in this case, you could form a partnership with the bakers daughter, and use part of the funds as venture capital for a big expansion of the bakery, with economy of scale (and maybe some crative application of new technology or basic magic) allowing for lower breadprices while creating extra jobs. From there on out, it is only a matter of time before we outcompete other bakeries, and allow them to join in on our little venture. While we are at it, we might also want to set up our own grain merchants, to prevent any price gouging or artificial shortages created by them. Soon, we will corner the entire bakery sector in the city, granting us full control of the production and distribution of the primary food source.

There is Human bread, Halfling bread, and Elven bread, but Dragon bread — Draco-pan — does not exist. In that case, there is no choice but to create it. This story is a serious, biographical ballad of a dragon who possesses Solar Breath, Azuma the Great Kazuma, who will create a Draconic bread made by and for Dragons, which can be presented to the world proudly.

A princess is often a symbol of her kingdom. Her marriage is arranged to secure future political alliances. Her dynasty rests on her bearing children.

A baker's daughter may inherit her family business and her marriage is not going to affect the country or its neighbours.

I've had this idea rattling around in my head for a while. An extra-planar dragon is booted out of his home onto the prime material realm at a young age. He disguises himself as a humanoid to avoid detection by adventurers, for he is young not stupid. As he travels the dragon comes into contact with a mortal merchant who successfully expands his business through his savvy maneuvers and reinvesting in local interests. The dragon is so struck by the challenge of amassing wealth through business instead of mortal combat that he asks to learn from the, by now, merchant lord. Cut to several hundred years later and the dragon has a business empire woven throughout the fabric of many nations and has a hoard full of property deeds and legal contracts.

Cut to 12 levels later, having been through dwarven mines, elven forests, and fae planes, and the same old asshole wizard abducts from our village again. The king have no idea who we are, and tells us that he cannot deal with that kind of kidnapping. So we take out to fuck up this little bastard ourselves.

Cut to 3 levels later. The kinds daughter have bee taken by an ancient dragon, who has set up nest in the most important trade city in the country. He heard we had taken care of a powerful wizard, so he recruits us to help him.

We let his kingdom and princess burn.

the GM hadn't seen it coming, and was a bit pissed that he had prepared a great deal for this, and then we just skip it. But he understood us when we explained it from our point of view, and let us go on to other business.

This thread is literally referencing it in the OP.
The fact that no one made note of that fact is telling about the turnover of /tg/ members over the years.

I don't give a fuck if the stuff was good or not. Most of the old and loved /tg/ stuff is cringeworthy from a modern perspective.
