We find it quite impossible to have a dragon themed game without a dragon. The Dragonbane technical team faces a respectable challenge in designing and building the electromechanical puppet that will play the physical part of the Cinderhill Dragon.
The Dragon is computer controlled robot equipped with special effects, big enough to convince both participants and characters. The dragon team includes engineers, programmers, artists and crafters from several countries working together to realize a dream.
Academic partners such as the Tampere University Hydraulics lab have provided valuable research work for designing for instance the movements of the neck of the dragon. The building of the Dragon is supported by corporate companies such as Kemppi, Bahco, Elfa, SHP, Sandvik, Työkalutukku, Kaukomarkkinat, Aseko and Keraplast.
