  1. I got bunches of Lilacs and Golds, this week! Alas, no more Magentas since my first one... but my breeding pairs are up to 13 CB pairs, 13 2G pairs, and 5 3G pairs. So more are bound to happen, someday!
  2. Oh, yeah. this is totally normal. An Iris can always give you either a Gold or a Purple Iris, and an Alstro bred with an Iris can give you a Pink, Purple, or Gold Alstro OR Iris. It's a crazy Floret-y world!
  3. Just got a beautiful Gold Alstro from this checker! Otherwise, LOTS of peach eggs this week, and 1 Lilac.
  4. THIS. I mean, just leave it a couple of hours? Please??
  5. I can't get my breeding project to breed Blue Nebulae to save my life. I'm getting so frustrated!! 4 reds and a misgender 5 reds Why aren't there any blues???
  6. Oh my gosh! and such a pretty one, too!! I've gotten all peaches from my breedings, today ...
  7. Okay! I'm going to take the plunge and post a couple of lineages that I've started. Hopefully, posting them here will actually encourage me to finish them! Forum name: Kelkelen Song or work: "Magic" (campfire song) Current generation/progress: 1st gen 32/32, 2nd gen 14/16, 3rd gen 2/8 CBs/Breeds still needed: None! The idea is to make a rainbow lineage with a nice gradient transition between colors, and lots of "magical-looking"/"ssparkly"shimmery"/"starry" dragons, in keeping with the lyrics of the song. And the penultimate breeds will be a Royal Crimson and a Royal Blue, to produce Eminence offspring from the completed lineage. 😄 A finished lineage, also dealing with rainbows -- Gemshards, this time! (I'd love to make a matching 2nd half with another verse, but that will require 8 more CB Gemshards, so...it can wait for now.) And a poem lineage, too. Forum name: Kelkelen Lineages you made: https://dragcave.net/lineage/g0Hl1 "Rainbow Children", campfire song (Gemshards) https://dragcave.net/lineage/29P4R "Nomenclature", poem by Stephen Vincent Benet (Fever Wyvern x Harvest) Add to front page? Yes Will you breed siblings for others if requested? Yes! Gladly.
  8. I've found some pretty babies over the last month or two -- let me see if I can round them up! Thanks to all of you generous breeders. 😉 @tjenni -- thanks for this beautiful Silver x Purple Iris checker @Ruffledfeathers -- how could I resist a holiday Golden Wyvern x Mistletoe? @Lyncerta -- I would have settled for any old Purple, but this Rosebud checker was a stunning surprise! @Ruffledfeathers again -- I've never seen this combination before, but it's so pretty! @catzrule1990 -- this is officially my first Stormrider, and what a beauty it is! @Anonymous -- two of my favorites, and named, to boot? How could I not? @Anonymous -- I THINK this one was a catch, and wow! A Celestial x Gold Tinsel checker?! @kyuuketsuneko for a nice CB vampire! She will be added to my army of Carmilla anagrams. 😉 @moonmadkitty -- soon to be named, I promise! This 2G Guardian from Royal Crimson @Ninetails -- from away back in January, this lovely Equinox from Yulebuck. I think I'm addicted to Equinoxes, now, by the way!
  9. Hehehe! Well, I peeked ahead and saw that it would be female... but decided to go ahead and influence it male. That way, it'll match the build of the father and the color of the mother... and that male Iris floret is just always so impressive! 🙂 But if I get another one, I'll keep you in mind!
  10. Yay! Yayyyy! Now... do I influence it male, to match breed, or female, to match color? Decisions, decisions...
  11. Here's how I've been starting to abbreviate the breeding info on my spreadsheet, in case it helps anybody else! A= Alstro I = Iris P = Pink (Peach) G = Gold V = Violet (Purple) So... PA x PA = PA (CB) PA x ?I = any A or (more rarely) any I (2G+) ?A x ?A/I = any A or any I For example, PA x VI could yield PA, GA, VA, or PI, GI, or VI, with an A being far more likely than an I.
  12. Okay, I did find this one interesting... so the Alstros don't always result in either Alstros or Magenta Irises. Hmm!
  13. @Shokomon -- oops! sorry -- I meant, brown egg! Gold Alstro!
  14. Yes! I think this is all right, shows where we are. Only question I have is about 2G and higher Iris x Alstro pairings -- CAN they yield a Purple or Gold Iris egg? So far, I've gotten only Alstros, in maybe 30 breedings. We know that the rare Pink Iris can result, but what about the original Iris colors?
  15. Right, I guess I was wondering more about a specific scenario -- if a 2nd-gen Alstro can still have Purple or Gold Iris offspring.
  16. This was the one recent breeding of mine that I found interesting -- that a 2G gold Alstro x CB Purple Iris can still yield a pink Alstro -- the alt color doesn't always breed true. Do we know if an Alstro x Iris pairing can ever yield an Iris? Or if it's always going to be Alstro? All of my (maybe 2 dozen?) breedings with Alstro x Iris have produced Alstro offspring.
  17. So lovely!!! Congrats! So... on a whole, what would be the most useful to "test for", now?
  18. Some breeding results... FOR SCIENCE! 2G Pink Alstro from Pink Alstro × Gold Floret × 2G Gold Alstro from Pink Alstro x Gold Floret = Peach egg 2G Gold Alstro from Pink Alstro x Purple Iris × CB Purple Iris = Peach egg 2G Pink Alstro from Pink Alstro x Purple Iris × CB Purple Iris = Gold egg CB Gold Iris x CB Pink Alstro = Peach egg CB Purple Iris x CB Pink Alstro = Lilac egg CB Purple Iris x CB Pink Alstro = Lilac egg Yay! I finally got a couple of lilacs! Now, if I can just breed that elusive Pink Iris...
  19. Almost time for a new round of Floret experiments! I should have some 3rd-gens to add to the list, this time. Also, I'm still curious to see if the biome/color of the alt drop rotates, or if it will always be this way. I have to say, I LOVE these sprites, both Iris and Alstro. I'm absolutely addicted to collecting them! Can hardly pass up any eggs in the AP, even!
  20. Still trying for a Pink Sapphire, of any lineage! I've seen about an average of 1 a day -- sooo much worse than the former Holly hunting! 😞 I do have my one nice Yellow, though. I'm curious about the Florets. Wondering if there are any upcoming surprises, like Alstros rotating which biome they drop in by month or something -- i.e., 1 month Pink Alstros drop in the jungle, the next month, Pink Irises drop in the Jungle but Gold Alstros in the Alpine, the next month it's Irises in the Jungle and Apline, but Purple Alstros in the Forest. Or, have we discovered the full mechanic already? Hmm...
  21. Updated! (oh look, I can finally spell "Cantormaris" correctly! Durr!) Floret research underway! (Possibly still buggy -- results subject to change! Thanks for your patience!

  22. I also just want to say, before this thread closes -- GREAT job! Fantastic sprites, fantastic variety of things to collect/do/explore. * The new florets are beyond amazing!!! They are so floral, I love the layered petal look, and they're just great, the anatomy, the shading, the lively poses, the rich colors! I am going to be OBSESSED with breeding them. They were definitely what I gravitated to first of all. Had to get my 4 CB pairs before I could consider doing anything else! * I was SO sad over the change in the old Nilias. I lost a favorite dragon forever. These new green variants make me much happier with their traditional pygmy compactness and their gorgeous, vibrant hue. They take the sting away a little, getting me excited to resume some pygmy species breeding projects. * Blue Electrics are gorgeous! And it's nice knowing that I can still get them for myself at any time, so I can focus on some new sprites now and others later. I think their palette will mix super well with a lot of other breeds, and I love the greenish tinge it gives them. * Shiny Penny Copper! Just the copper we were missing! I miss the overall 'shinier' and less pixelated shading of the old ones, and the stronger presence of other tones in their coloring, but a shiny bright copper seems exactly like what this breed needed. (Is it bad that I kind of secretly hope it gets an even more shiny, reflective update/regression?) * ROYAL PURPLE EMINENCE. AAAAAAA!!! I adore, ADORE Royal Blues, and have since they first came out. They're the one species I actually have an army of, on my scroll. And Royal Crimsons are so beautiful, I can't help collecting them when I come across them. And now? Two of my favorite species have created a FANTASTIC third? YES PLEASE! I immediately bred 4 on the first day. I love the grandeur, the detail, the spiral swirls, the regal poses... Just such nice pieces of art, and exactly what they ought to be. ❤️ These alone would have been amazing as a birthday surprise! * New Cantormarises... oh my. I missed the original Cantormaris release by a day, could barely catch any, and consoled myself with the fact that I wasn't super into the dragon design. UNTIL these two came out! AUGH! Now I have to fight to get them... and risk Earthquake, which I've never used before and never wanted to! But that GREEN... This is one of those things I'll have to work myself up to. * Pink and Yellow Sapphires -- Okay, I'm a big relieved that I still love the originals best; they look the most like a shiny, smooth gemstone, and their colors are such deep, rich jewel tones, plus I love their 'chatty' pose. However. However. These new sprites are SO nicely made, they deserve applause! The poses may be the best part. I especially like the pink one, that's maybe protecting its young, or ready to defend itself, or else just play fighting? Very nice! I hope that I can catch one, on day -- I've seen maybe 4 in the AP in the past week, and that's with a LOT of hunting! The struggles of the slow connection... * Gemshards!!! Say it again -- Gemshards!!! Both the new colors AND the new mechanic are very exciting -- breeding projects will be easier, new ones have opened up, and the bright new tones are so fun and cheerful and gemstone-like. They have a new translucence and iridescence. I'm hovering over my new eggs, so excited to see them as little hatchies on my own scroll. 😄
