Tl;dr: A group of adventurers brazenly follow the literal paper trail of a literal paper
tiger dragon to a paper covered dungeon where paper monsters attack. Reams of paper were reamed. Our adventurers were hurt, some nearly dead, but in the end, the sword is mightier than the paper, with everyone safely returning back to Ruined Oak.
