  1. But what do you mean by "Natural Hatch"? I understand the Green are Incubated, but after that..?
  2. I've seen cats push off that same way, the Pyrovar may look awkward, but the pose is entirely valid.
  3. Hmmmm, slick, oily feeling hide...wonder if the Lumin dergs will like them? ^u^
  4. Exactly, that's what I'm seeing. I just wondered if I was the only one.
  5. Is anyone else seeing nothing but eggs on their scroll..?
  6. 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
  7. Yeah, it was the slimy egg...can't remember the breed, sorry
  8. I hope we get some extra time out of this, I saw a regular egg in the Coast.
  9. So the Wind ones are blocking the others? Is that why nothing is in the other Biomes?
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. Are the 24 hour eggs still dropping..?
  13. Late as usual lol. I have two of the three, missing, of course, the blue. Lovely dragons!
  14. Normally, we get in cave releases only. I'm really glad this is a set of eggs I can actually get. I was able to trade for the dergs I needed from the last release because of these <3
  15. Was able to breed 6 eggies with only one fail and one refusal. Now let's hope I can trade them. Still catching up on the last release
  16. ALL the new dragons are gorgeous I'm glad we finally got a new Summoned Dragon, now I just need to get Pink Yellow and Red to complete my first set You Spriters rock!
  17. THANK YOU, I hadn't seen that page <3
  18. ...managed to Egglock myself with a Bleeding Moon whose code starts with 8D ...its laughing at my pain. Wah. lol
  19. I'm really late to the party, but Ive managed 2 from the Desert.
  20. Turned out regular: Claim my eggs/hatchlings! | Claim my eggs/hatchlings! | Claim my eggs/hatchlings! | Claim my eggs/hatchlings! - All gone, thanks and enjoy!
  21. Oh my, that is indeed a very special lineage...I will treasure it! Thank you!
  22. This egg is decended from royalty! My Pedigree A fine Princess (or Prince?) Please offer a dummy. I'm hoping this baby will go to someone who will appreciate the prettiness of the line
  23. Sense of humor? This egg is for you. Claim my eggs/hatchlings! Would be nice to know who gets it!
