First, you figure out which is the liar without asking any questions. Say something like, "I'm assuming that you are a guard, but correct me if I am wrong." If they say they aren't a guard, they are a liar. If they say they are or don't say anything, they are the truthful guard. Then, you can proceed to ask them which door is the princess and which one is the dragon.  "I'm assuming you are a guard" this could still be counted as a question. If you simply say "You sir are certinally a guard" then he will simply answer of course I am if he is the truthful guard. If he is the lying guard he with deny it. Your not wrong but, we don't want to take risks with our lives now do we.
