For all road encounters which end in dragon fights, add a subtle bit of awesomeness. Imagine your avatar running around on Overworld . . . oh look, there's a stag . . . suddenly the shadow of a dragon in flight whisks past. Your avatar gazes skyward (still on Overworld), but there's nothing there. Your avatar looks back at the stag and the shadow passes by again. This time, the shadow touches your avatar. Uh-oh: You've just been snagged into the encounter (as if you had gotten close enough to the stag [or whatever] to be drawn in).
