Dragons in Korean mythology are mostly seen as "benevolent beings" related to water and agriculture, often considered ones who bring on the rain and clouds. Also many Korean dragons are said to have resided in rivers, lakes, oceans, or even deep ponds within mountains.One particular Korean legend tells of the great King Munmu, who on his last wish to become a "Dragon of the East Sea in order to protect Korea". The Dragon itself been used in Korean mythology and art alot....

The Imugis or lesser dragon in Korean mythology which looked like giant "serpents".There are a few different varieties of stories how the imugis become a grown dragon...I like to mention also that the Korean dragon also has a longer beard than the Chinese dragon in contrast..The Imugi is a "proto dragon" must survive a thousand years to become a 'fully fledged dragon"
The four-clawed Korean Yong(Draco orientalis koreensis), though less friendly than the Chinese Lung, remains a fascinating creature which prefers to dwell in the volcanic mountain springs of Korea. Contrary to previous opinion, they have four toes on each foot.

Also.the Korean Yong(Draco orientalis koreensis) is 8 to 10 feet high and up to 50 feet in length and has 4 toes on each foot and which is much less sociable than the Chinese Lung. They are narrower and longer than the Chinese Lung(Chinese dragon) but with a similar body shape. They look yellowish to gold with a “white mane and whiskers”. The dragons have bigger scales than other “species and fewer spines”. The dragon's feelers are used to find “prey underwater”. The dragons' call sounds like a yodel and then simmers down to low sounding call.....
They hunt on mostly on little mammals, they favor being musk deer. The dragons tighten their bodies around their victims thus suffocating it before devouring it. To catch prey, they “hypnotise them” by implementing the dragons call and back and forth hypnotic dance. Also, I would like to add the Yong stays in the mountains where there are volcanic pools in the winter.
Lastly,I would like to add another famous species of Korean dragon is the Kye-ryong, that is a compound animal: a mixture of “dragon” and “chicken”. They can be found by pools of water...

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
