Little is known about the red dragon of the east. Documents from as early as the Song Dynasty indicate that the hoard was found in the “ancient past,” and was known primarily by legend. Other sources indicate that the wealth was greater than that of “10 emperors” and that in particular it contained a great deal of jade, which was of particular significance to Chinese authors. Several reputable sources indicate that the hoard was stored in a magical cave hidden behind a waterfall, and were discovered by a philosopher. Persistent oral legends hold that only a wise man could find the treasure, and that it is still there for the taking. Although details of the exact contents are limited, several items have been mentioned frequently enough to conclude that they were probably included in the hoard.
