  1. I just updated the list of Available Dragon Breeds here, by adding Frostbites and Falconiforms.
  2. Haven't been to Oslo yet - feel free, I'll get the next Torshavn egg for you.
  3. I've gone ahead and updated my Passport with Torshavn. ...I have a soft spot for the Faroe Islands for whatever reason... maybe because they're Scandinavian and so unknown to the rest of the world. <3 Not to mention I actually like their language - it's surprisingly easy to understand with basic knowledge of Swedish. ...Granted, I can actually read Old English and Middle English and understand a few phrases of Old Norse and Icelandic so it helps. PS. I bred my Teimarrs just now, but got no egg. Looks like we'll have to wait for better weather in the Norwegian Sea / North Atlantic, then.
  4. I still have plans to take up Torshavn if it gets through the poll (I should be able to since I have traveled through 10 capitals by now). I even have a Faroese couple (Black-Capped Teimarrs) ready from my previous Around the World lineage. 8D EDIT: Anyone up for going to Nicosia? I got an egg just now and it even has an all-numbers code. Make an offer on my eggs/hatchlings!
  5. There, I'm done with my votes. ...If Torshavn makes it through the poll, I'm hoping to get that as my second capital (if no new member wants it, that is). I've been to both of these cities, and I LOVE Florence. Palazzo Pitti was interesting to see and Il Duomo is really quite impressive up close (but it looks sort of bland and empty on the inside). As for St. Petersburg, the Hermitage was beautiful - it's amazing to think the Russian Czars used to live in that palace.
  6. I also picked no particular type - I'm happy as long as we get new breeds and it's always fun to find out what they end up looking like.
  7. I've finished my trip around the world. http://dragcave.net/lineage/M157V The lineage turned out pretty nice-looking, and I've already influenced the final egg female so it matches its mother. ...Intending to try for a Bleeding Moon so I can have a brother for her.
  8. Make an offer on my eggs/hatchlings! Here's a new ticket to Nicosia, Cyprus. Hopefully the weather holds. ------------------------------------------------- My choices for the 5 new cities 1. Poland: Krakow. It's the former capital of Poland, and the royal castle of the former Polish kingdom is situated here. (I've been in that castle, btw.) Also has a yearly event called March of the Living where students from all over the world walk from Auschwitz to Birkenau, in memory of the holocaust victims. ...I took part in that march with my history class back in 2006. 2. Italy: Venice. Because the Carnival of Venice is one of the biggest things to happen in Italy. (And now I want to write mystery fiction about the carnival. Oh lordy.) 3. Denmark: Torshavn. It isn't really that big a tourist spot, but the historical value is still there. The Faroese people are Scandinavian, even though the islands are really close to Scotland. It's weird. 8D 4. Turkey: Istanbul. Used to be Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire. (The original Greek city, Byzantium, had been there for centuries before the Romans got there. Basically, the area in and around Istanbul has been a city for nearly 2700 years. One of the oldest cities in the world?) 5. Switzerland: Zürich. The world's most famous private banks?
  9. I got a Japanese word recently. http://dragcave.net/lineage/FUITA
  10. Male Blusang - http://dragcave.net/lineage/ou8NO (named him "Ou NO". Read that in a French accent.) Glaucus Drake - http://dragcave.net/lineage/SONAT (a.k.a. The Unfinished Sonata) Male Gold - http://dragcave.net/lineage/4p0oM (decided to name him after Pommern, though he could also be a pom or a weird explosion) Female Mint - http://dragcave.net/lineage/ZGrag (somebody can't spell grog) Female Moonstone - http://dragcave.net/lineage/Snz1D (she's been sneezing for one day straight. I know what that feels like.) Female White - http://dragcave.net/lineage/MOkFU (...mock-fu?)
  11. Got my second GoN a week ago - it's hatched and been ER'd so it should grow up soon. <3
  12. Hm... let's see then. 1. Germany: Munich. Probably the most famous city apart from Berlin. 2. Italy: Venice. 3. Switzerland: Zürich. 4. Austria: Salzburg. 5. Russia: St. Petersburg. 6. Turkey: Istanbul. 7. Poland: Krakow. 8. Kosovo: Pristina (capital city). 9. Netherlands: The Hague (the Dutch Royal Family lives here). 10. Ireland: Galway. 11. Lithuania: Kaunas. I've visited a fortress called the Ninth Fort in this city... met a living bat in one of the shadowed archways, too~ 12. Norway: Tromso. Has the world's northernmost university. 13. Ukraine: Odessa. The Pearl of the Black Sea. 14. Spain: Barcelona. 15. Sweden: Gothenburg. 16. UK: Oxford. Because it has one of the most famous universities in the world. 17. Finland: Turku. Oldest city in Finland and the original capital city.
  13. Just popped in to say that I'm still here. Been working five days a week so I tend to forget about this site these days. *pause* Came up with a new idea for the 17 remaining cities. How about the most famous (non-capital) cities in Europe, and Kosovo? 1. Hamburg, Germany (second largest city in Germany) 2. Stuttgart, Germany (base of German car-manufacturing) 3. Düsseldorf, Germany (called Klein-Tokyo because of Japanese immigrants) 4. Munich, Germany (Olympics) 5. Milan, Italy (seat of fashion) 6. Venice, Italy (carnival and lots of water) 7. Florence, Italy (medieval, and seat of the Archdukes of Tuscany) 8. Naples, Italy (Pompeii is nearby) 9. Pisa, Italy (Leaning Tower... I've been there) 10. Verona, Italy (Romeo & Juliet) 11. Zürich, Switzerland (banking) 12. St. Petersburg, Russia (former capital city) 13. Istanbul, Turkey (used to be Constantinople) 14. Salzburg, Austria (Mozart's hometown) 15. Krakow, Poland (capital city of the Kingdom of Poland) 16. Pristina, Kosovo 17. ?
  14. I was thinking more along the lines of: Original members: Capital city from each European country New members: Largest city (population) from each European country Sometimes the largest city IS also the capital city so that would trim the second list nicely and keep it nice and short. ...Oh, and the largest city could also work for those original members who still want a second city to host. PS. I still think Kosovo counts as a country. Over half the world accepts it as a sovereign country now - out of 193 UN states, 108 accept it so far.
  15. Missed CB Gold, but caught a CB Blusang five minutes later. I'm not sure if I'll keep it or trade it - already have a gendered pair of CB Blusangs so yeah...
  16. Oh god eeeeeeeeeeeeee- http://dragcave.net/lineage/BTxE2 *fangirl spasm* I got a fandom egg! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B't_X
  17. I don't know if it's just me, but Eggs Around The World seems to be down. I was going to check the Dragonmarket there and got an error message right off the bat. There are apparently two sites for that now, but neither of them work.
  18. Travelling Europe ! Travellers involved: Beldarius, Quinney Capitals travelled: Nicosia, Valletta
  19. OMFG My hAIT1 and eHWAp (Canadian wireless) just bred a wet egg! http://dragcave.net/lineage/WeTPY
  20. Bred a new ticket to Nicosia, Cyprus. Anyone up for some warmth? The weather's been crazy up here in Finland (our snow melted a month ago, and we got more NOW). Make an offer on my eggs/hatchlings! By the way, I just thought about something. Faroe Islands aren't considered their own country so the capital probably won't be part of this project (that still doesn't explain Greenland - they're both autonomous countries). ...But would it be possible to still breed Faroese eggs for this thread, as long as you give them for free?
  21. http://dragcave.net/lineage/CAlu1 She's called Calumon One now. http://dragcave.net/lineage/PPack And he is Clinical Chemistry because PPack is an acronym for a type of anticoagulant.
  22. By the way, since somebody appears to have taken Nuuk (the capital of Greenland), I guess it's OK to take other overseas "provinces"? If so, could I reserve Torshavn (Faroe Islands) with Black-Capped Teimarrs? The Belgrade egg will be my 10th once it grows up. I already have a Faroe Island couple of Teimarrs for my Around the World lineage - hopefully it's OK to use them. http://dragcave.net/lineage/1jg8u This is what the lineage will end up looking like.
  23. Travelling Europe ! Travellers involved: Beldarius, WolfParadise Capitals travelled: Nicosia, Belgrade
  24. ...Nicosia hatchie grew up so I released it. I already had two second gens, didn't need a third one. >.> Make an offer on my eggs/hatchlings! Here's a new Pink Nicosia ticket for anyone who wants to travel.
  25. My Nicosia egg is still here if anyone wants to travel. I also put it in the ER and it should be close to hatching soon. It hatched so here's the new trade link~ Make an offer on my eggs/hatchlings!
