Somewhere in every fantasy world, there's this rocky cliff. People are attracted to it. Vallejo's women stroll down it, Frazetta's warriors pose on it, Whelan's dragons perch on it, and the real kicker is that there's NO reason anyone in their right mind would hang out, barely clad, on a windy peak with a sheer drop on every side. But it makes for a good composition. So I tried to figure out why my dragon and his rider would be here, and decided it was either to plant a marker flag or to take a geologic survey, and the flag concept lept more easily to the eye. (That's the mottled makhdragon, by the way--unlike most dragons, which tend to be stupid, aggresive, and territorial, the makhdragon is placid, herbivorous, and intelligent enough to speak a few words--'Food!' being the favorite. They're the favored mounts of the officers of the Imperium. Wherever that is.) I do like his dewlap.

I doubt that navigating with words is the phrase you intended. This is not a correction, just noting that as stated the Fey's comment in non-sequitorial. Besides with intelligence comes poor judgment. This dragon is intelligent and thus can be persuaded through properly applied spurious logic and emotional blackmail to do things that less intelligent dragons would up with which not put. (Apologies for sordid grammar, but I was was obscenely avoiding prepositionally ending that sentence.) Anyway Vallejo's wimmin are bred in polar climes (to better accentuate their protuberances) and thus find reason to stand in windy areas to cool off their rabid metabolisms. Besides if you are a hunter, you can better espy your prey cliffside. I can relate as I find that most "comfortable" temperatures are too hot for my blood.

How would the rider get down from there? And when did iguanas, goats and dragons breed together?

You’re forgetting the Lion King. Cliffs are for showing off little baby lions. On the other hand, in 300, cliffs are also for throwing babies "off" cliffs.
