    Super excited about these new dragons! I'm not normally a fan of pink dragons but the shading on these intrigues me. Congrats to Mewtie and Marri and thanks to TJ for this new release!

    Hey thank you and you're welcome.

    Two pink coastal dragons with bad tempers? Interesting release theme. XD

    I mean at this point who isn't grumpy? XD

    I'm not sure what to think of the non-pygmy, it looks a lot like a bird to me and I'm worried it'll grow up into yet another dragon that looks way too bird-like. :huh:

    And why does the pygmy hatchling have no description at all?

    “Cute” “baby” and “dragon” get the job done. It is all three of those things. 😉


  3. Now that DC’s setting and canon are expanded in the way of valkemarian lore, little of which is formally presented on site, pretty much everything in dragon descriptions and the gameplay premise of the site is like... “old canon.” I don’t see a compelling reason to enforce style or consistency on player dragon descriptions. If someone cares enough to go through the energy to write an excited blurb about how their aeon can travel through space and time to earth 1988 to dance in post soviet discos, more power to them. Valkemare couldn’t support the biomass of the bulk of player dragons, one player couldn’t raise as many dragons in a lifetime as people have on their scrolls so it only stands to reason most individual dragons aren’t canon to begin with.

     

    I’d recommend automated filtering for profanity and urls, an internal queue where mods can quickly browse “recent descriptions” if need be, and a big obvious report button on the view page on described dragons for players that find The Bad Stuff when mods don’t. Otherwise proceeding with the assumption that most people aren’t yikesy trolls is probably a good mindset.


  4. There are many mechanics on this game you can influence and can control. You can also choose to not enter the raffle any given month. Having this one particular mechanic left to chance doesn’t ruin the game. I’m sorry you can’t directly exert influence and obtain a specific generation of tinsel through force of will, but this is by design. Some mechanics are chance based. We love variety.
