    2018-12-25 - Happy Holidays!

    I'm absurdly happy. I got one of the new dragons, and it's code says E Box. If that doesn't say online gift, nothing does 😂🎁

    I am so super happy, I've been able to get all the past Christmas Dragons I've missed except Garland. I'm ok with 'losing out' on the one if that happens ❤️ Plus I just bred a Holiday 2009 with a Gold, and got an egg with a cool code that looks like I Pay. I'm sorry, I'm easily amused 😄

    Ohh, I'm sorry, I should have specified that it's from the Holiday cave, but still I assume the answer stands lol. Thank you for answering Syiren

    If I have a Solstice Dragon that grows up before the breeding times stop, could it be used this breeding cycle? I'm thinking it's still a no, but I'm hopeful since it's not the new breed...

    WOW. And I mean WOW. I can say with certainty that these are hands down my favourite dragon. Delightful use of bright colours and a nice bold stance. So much love!

    I got one with code ending with Mybd. Makes me think "My bad", so maybe mine will be a clumsy spud 😂

    I still don't have an Omen, bred or otherwise. I'm trying to trade for them now 😕

    I agree with the idea of having a more purely aggressive/evil dragon. We have tons of sweetness and light dragons, but really (seriously asking here) are there any that aren't in some way modifiable (as in, friendly under the right circumstances/to their caregiver/on certain holidays or some such) ? I'd like a purely malevolent dragon that maybe hibernates the entire year except X holiday.

    I'm extremely late to this party, but I had no problems getting 4 of each of them ^w^ Very nice adults, I can see myself collecting the Ash dragons for sure. I really like the Boreals as well <3

    are we entirely sure on the incubation point? As in, could we incubate it, and hatch it on say one day left, and potentially get a blue/purple?

    Ahhh, thank you for the explanation! If this is the mechanic, I should have a...somewhat...easy time getting the other colours. I'm extremely patient when I need to be ❤️

    But what do you mean by "Natural Hatch"? I understand the Green are Incubated, but after that..?

    I've seen cats push off that same way, the Pyrovar may look awkward, but the pose is entirely valid.

    Hmmmm, slick, oily feeling hide...wonder if the Lumin dergs will like them? ^u^

    Exactly, that's what I'm seeing. I just wondered if I was the only one.

    One of TJs babies has gendered, looking good! I've snagged 5 of the blue eggs, now I just need to get more of the brown. I have 2 of them. Weird glitch there, but I'm glad I was around for it

    I hope we get some extra time out of this, I saw a regular egg in the Coast.

    So the Wind ones are blocking the others? Is that why nothing is in the other Biomes?

    Racism

    I have to disagree with you just a bit. While pointing out differences can certainly cause racism, it isn't the entire reason. You are fortunate that your children didn't notice a difference, or seemed not to anyway. Neither of my children attended preschool, and so was not acquainted with other peoples as much as they might have otherwise been, so when my eldest son started kindergarten, he was telling me a story about "the dark man", a man who was I found out later a substitute teacher. He genuinely liked this gentleman, but when he explained that he was greeting the man by calling "hey dark man", I was mortified. I had to explain that saying that it might be offensive. Then I had to explain what offensive meant, then I had to explain why it could be offensive. So, to keep my son from being seen as racist (or being raised by racists) I had to teach him to be overly cautious about choosing his words. Additionally, I once overheard two ladies mocking a white mother for not knowing how to care for her biracial child's hair. I was curious to learn, because my youngest son was dating a black girl, and I didn't want to be in the same ignorant position. They seemed to get angry over my curiosity...but how am I supposed to learn how to properly care for my potential future grand babies..? Instead of denying differences, we should be teaching our children to celebrate and understand our differences. That being different isn't wrong! It would certainly be a boring world if we all came from the same mold!

    Where's your name from?

    Very similar circumstances! I had just finished reading The Black Gryphon by Mercedes Lackey, which is still my second favourite book. I was new online, looking for a name to call myself, when I realized that one of the main characters was 'painted' (dyed feathers), and voila, instant screen name. That was near 18 years ago ^u^ Still a fan, and I've never been tempted to change it either. I agree with Sunrunner, Stronghold is a wonderful book (the only one I've managed to get ahold of). I want to read the rest. I'd like to add to the list The Mage Wars trilogy (The Black Gryphon, The White Gryphon, and The Silver Gryphon) as well as any of the Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon. Wonderful fantasy reads <3
