  1. This increases net chaos ergo I must support That being said multiclutching was one of my favorite old mechanics. I used to collect twins and inbreed them.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I want my breed to be distributed via mechanism of chance. Embrace the chaos, friends.
  5. I would advise waiting until we get a sense for how the new scaled up prize pools distribute before demanding further changes. The current prizes are distributed via a mechanism of chance. It was always intended to be this way. There was never any intention of these being distributed as guaranteed achievement awards.
  6. -bongocats ominously in the distance- I like this update.
  7. 2/3 favorite spriters on a 3 person collab means one of us is unworthy. Is this where Skwoolf, TCA, and I fight to the death to figure out which two of us get the mantles of favorites? I’m scrappy. I feel good about my odds.
  8. They grow up so fast. I made my scroll before my forum account, I think literally right around the month I turned 18. My entire adult life. I don’t know how to be an adult without DC lol. Happy Borthday, Cave. ;A;
  9. I am unaware of tiny eggs that can be bitten.
  10. We have a teenager. WE HAVE A TEENAGER.
  11. I wouldn’t be opposed to DC having its own mechanics and credits info in-house as opposed to requiring an independent, hit or miss wikia. From what I understand that independent fan repository is down to a single administrator. I think it might be time we offer the playerbase info here instead. Convenient one stop information shopping I like this idea.
  12. I feel really numb right now. It’s weird.
  13. I kept my whole house clean for one week.
  14. There’s this abandoned factory smokestack in Liege Belgium and I miss seeing it on the way to the pharmacy near my aunt’s townhouse. I want to visit there again and see if my memories live up to the truth.
  15. I’m both pretty skeptic and also marginally interested in astrology. Humans have a pretty intense desire to know ourselves and give words to what we are, and we’re really good at finding patterns where there are none. That being said my sun sign has always accurately described me and my moon sign and my ascendant signs are also weirdly spot on. I’ve spent a lot of time in therapy putting a finer point on what I consider to be the more difficult parts of my personality and the more I do that the more I see my moon sign in myself? Like it’s probably bull**** but it’s helpful and descriptive bull**** so I don’t feel particularly bad about coopting the terminology as a shorthand for self truths. I’m a Cancer with my moon in Gemini and a Taurus ascendant. Water, air, earth, good mix of traits. Trying to remediate that tendency for over emotionality and sensitivity, always searching, always curious, never satisfied, but patient and strong enough to get through it. It’s the best unprovable thing.
  16. The ferocious and irrepressible desire to communicate.
  17. Given that economic deprivement and abuse have measurable intergenerational impact, yeah. Devising and implementing reparations sounds like hard but worthwhile work.
  18. I recently adopted two cacti (I live in Texas) and they’re so cute I could die. One’s a grafted cactus - possibly a dragonfruit stalk with a mutant pink pup grafted to the top - and one is a pretty barrel cactus with pink flowers. I’m so smitten with them. Along with my wee aloe plant I now have 3 planty friends.
  19. A gift, maybe. A curse without a doubt.
  20. I bred one of my Spriter Alts to a super messy dragon. And passed the offspring off to another artist who bred it the same. It was ideal chaos.
