    I will have room to breed tomorrow (or the days after that), so please PM to arrange a trade. All ancestors on my scroll will be named if their offspring is traded.

    221, as far as I can tell.

    My scroll says 235 (and I'm missing a few, like some dinos, undeads, neglected, prizes [of course]). So probably more than 221 ? Or do we have to subtract some subtypes that the scroll is counting, but aren't unique breeds ?

    Edit: Ah, the Confused Cat de-confused us. :)


  3. @wobster109 Thank you for adopting that little Stripe ! I'm happy to hear it brought you such joy !

    I fact, your post gave me a morale boost for my Everchanging Dragons (that's what I call the lineage). :) You are right in the assumption that I'm trying for the last (Chrono) Xeno. Have been for a long while now (1 year, 3 months), will probably be for even longer. So it's nice to see that the fails are appreciated by someone !

     

    @pinkgothic Thanks for the nice words to you as well ! There aren't any undead in Lantea (aka on my scroll), and usually I'm not very fond of sending little ones to such a fate, but since it sounds like your little Vampire would be loved and cared for I'll send the next fail your way.

    I really like how skull-like those heads are, I'm having sort of a leshen vibes:) and therefore can't imagine them without antlers!

     

     

    Also, high time to give myself a credit for my treat: 1579809744_owlhalloweentreat20162.png.f5bbb690db071bf292fae97cb3d483a8.png I originally made it for Halloween 2016 because there were way too few owl treats in my basket (apparently just 1 back then).

    Thank you for the owl ! I love this treat, it's so beautiful ! :wub:

    List of Halloweens I'm willing to breed:

    You can find a detailed list of the Halloween lineages I can breed, with lineage links, in my spreadsheet. There's one tab for Shadow Walker lineages, and one for all the other Halloween breeds ("Other Halloweens"). They are all checkers. If I don't need them to trade for what I need I'll breed them for free, we'll just have to set up a specific date for it, because egg space is so scarce during holiday weeks. Non-holiday offspring is free also, just ask.

    My stupid mouse just did a double-click and closed one window too many, destroying an hour of work writing the post, so I'll add the list (again) here later. 😠

     

    List of Halloweens I need:

     

    I can offer Bloodswaps for all of these, but I'd do other trades for them as well.

    All ancestors will be named if we do a bloodswap !

    4th gen Shadow Walker from Rosy Solstice unrelated to him

    4th gen Shadow Walker from Blue Solstice unrelated to him

  10. Ouch, this was an unpleasant surprise. Some project logos I'll never get to see again, I guess, because the people that made them (and had them loaded up to TinyPic) aren't even at the forums any more. 😞

     

    Does anyone still have a working image of the "gentlemanly" TJ easter egg ? The one painted with TJ's logo and wearing a top hat and monocle or some such ?


  11. @Ytak The Heralds are a bit more colourful than the Shimmers, but I'd hope they are close enough.

    That Guardian/Mistletoe checker is beautiful ! And that spriter's alt looks so gorgeous with the Guardian, now I'm sorry we won't see a complete checker like that. (The crux of spriter's alts, I suppose. ;))

     

    Edit: Hey, the whining a few posts up did help (a little) ! After 1 1/2 years of trying I got a different Xeno out of that Mageia !!! Now I have a second pair I can try every week for that final Chrono. 😃

    What is someone trying to 'accomplish' when they say something negative? The exact same thing the positive posts are trying to 'accomplish': expressing their opinion. Which everyone *should* be allowed to do. There are *tons* of people in this thread posting positive/happy/etc reactions, and no one asks them what they are trying to accomplish. People should be able to express negative reactions just as much as positive reactions.

    (This isn't only meant for HeatherMarie, I just quoted this because it gave me the start for my own line of thinking.)

     

    Just to add another perspective: There actually is more to it in this context than just expressing opinion.

    The creators of new dragons here at DC "work" for free. The only reward they get for all their work is a. seeing their dragon in cave and b. the appreciation of the other users. So, while I can't speak for everyone, I guess people that express positive/happy/etc reactions do this not only to give their opinion to the world at large, they also do it to let the creators of the dragon know how much they appreciate their work, and that said work made them feel positive in some way.

    So, uttering opinions in public spaces like this might usually be for its own sake, because people like to let their opinion be known, and find others that share it. (Talking about pure opinion here, not feedback or criticism.) But when the people who made the thing that the opinion is about are "in the room" (reading the thread), it gets another level - it will serve as a reward or a rebuke to them. And that's what giving that opinion will "accomplish" in this case.

     

    And that's also where I'd ask anyone who wants to express a negative opinion to do so in a polite, non-hurtful way. Humans are social beings, they are designed to care about their social environment and the signals it is sending. (More or less, depending on the circumstances, but in essence that's how it is.) So yes, you always should exercise circumspection when giving out negative things to people who didn't do anything to you out of malice. If someone designed a dragon to share it with everyone, and you don't like it, well, that's sad, but they didn't do anything to you, so you have no right to do anything to them. You can of course still express your own disappointment/frustration/sadness/whatever, but you should word it in a way that doesn't spread the grief.

     

    @Mewtie

    Ohhh, that close-up is gorgeous ! Looks a bit like a fox. Tiny, blue rainbow-foxes ! Now I love them even more ! 😃 Thank you for this !

    I have to say I would have preferred the old pose of the female sprite, because it looks more harmonious to me with the billowing wings and the legs not "sticking out" from the image, but I see why you did the new version (makes everything a lot more discernible), and it still looks good.


  13. @Stripey 60 generations ?! Wow ! The first generations are from early 2012 - that's about when I started on DC ! 😮

     

    @Suzumiya I love that Monarch/Candelabra combi, they look great together ! Might have to steal that idea one day...

     

    @Ruby Eyes Rocky Rainbow ? Sounds like some kind of ice cream (but maybe that's the summer heat frying my brain). 😃 Beautiful lineage. And I guess it will stay a mystery forever where all those Stones came from... Had a Mountain dragon that got eroded, maybe ?

     

    @LadyAmlaruil2 The "Clan Mystal Holiday Magic Lineage" is just... magical ! And amazing ! I always like such "collect them all in one" lineages, and to see one with all holidays in order of release is very impressive ! I'm looking forward to your post here in early 2030, when you have bred a mate for this beauty ! 😉😉

     

    @Ytak Maybe use Lunar Heralds as stand-ins for the Shimmers ? (Gold, Silver, Bronze, Blue for Jewel)

     

    And because sometimes whining seems to help...

    I've been working on my "Everchanging Dragons" lineage for a while now. Made progress, some faster, some slower, but all in all it worked out quite well. And now I'm stuck, trying to get the last egg !

    This 6th gen has to be a Chrono Xeno. But all I get (besides Stripes from the mother) are Mageias.      

    The problem started when I got stuck trying to get any non-Mageia Xenos from this guy. So I decided to make an alternate 4th gen pair, got a Gaia. That one gave me a 5th gen Mageia. And now here we go again. Now both Mageias, bred every week, only spit out more Mageias.

    Are those stupid Mageias (I know, I know, they are not stupid, usually I really like them...) even capable of breeding other Xeno variants when bred to a non-CB non-Xeno ? Anyone has an example they can show me, to lift my spirits ?

    I mean, this is ridiculous:

    1st gen: Pyro bred an Astrapi in 1st try (with CB Alpine partner)

    2nd gen: Astrapi bred 7 Astrapis, 6 Geodes, then 1 Chrono (after that 5 Geodes, 2 Astrapis and then 1 Thalassa)

    3rd gen: Thalassa bred 5 Thalassas, 1 Seasonal, then 1 Mageia (after that 1 Seasonal, then 1 Gaia)

    4th gen: Gaia bred 3 Gaias, 5 Avatars, then 1 Mageia

    4th gen: Mageia bred 23 (!) Mageias, 24 Avatars, NO other Xeno (so far), some abandoned Mageia/Avatar eggs may have died and are not included

    5th gen: Mageia bred 12 Mageias, 14 Stripes, NO other Xeno (so far), some abandoned Mageia eggs may have died (some Stripes definitely did) and are not included

    I'm starting to fear the Mageias are bugged... 🙁


  14. The Luminox were a Halloween concept, right ? Or at least their description and looks leave that impression for me. I would have absolutely loved to get them at Halloween, they would've been my second favourite right after the Shadows. I adore their whole description (well, apart from the "indifferent"/"unlike" technicality). The lively personality, amazing lights  and aura of comfort remind me of all the fun you can have during the early autumn dusk/dark with lanterns and bonfires. Fearsome to look at at first, with their black eyes and murderous beaks and talons - and then they spread their wings, and laugh, and bring warmth and cheer and marvellous lights. Just love it. (Apparently you don't have to be a child to be enraptured by them. ;))

    The good news of them being a regular release: This way they can breed all year round ! Yay ! :lol:

     

    The Glowbacks are really adorable, especially due to their cute ears ! Also, really beautiful sprites ! So in Valkemare/Galsreim no one will be very impressed by fireflies - not if you have ever seen the nightly dance of the rainbow pygmies ! :)

     

    Thank you, TJ and the spriters, for a great release that brings more colour and magic (and fluff!) to the world of DC !


  15. Breeder's Update Form

    Forum name: Lantean_Pegasus

    PM link: PM link

    Notes: Breeding requests are welcome, including those for other users (friends or family, for example). If I gift you a little one: no killing, no neglecting. If you need a rebreed for misgendering/miscolouring/refusal just let me know.

    Lineages of your special release dragons:  Personal spreadsheet It's not entirely up-to-date, but I'll try to add to it. I also have some of my special release dragons in the SROGG database (will try to add to that, too). If you see any lineage of mine that isn't listed, but you need an offspring from, just ask.


  16. Well, this is an intriguing release...

     

    Corteo's little mountaineering pygmy reminds us of the Blusang colour pattern, and TCA's otherworldly teleporter might be a little cousin of the Aeria Gloris. Nods to the past ?  😉

     

    The pygmy is really cute so far ! I'm still wondering what the description might hint at. "Tries to climb over everything". Hmm... What could the adult species do that the little ones are practicing for ? They have wings, so they wouldn't necessarily have to climb to reach the highest point of any given thing. Or is it because the little ones can't yet fly. Or do they detest boundaries in any form, refusing to let anything block their way ? Or maybe the little ones just love climbing, like many children do. 😃

     

    And the dimension (?) hopping little teleporter is too myterious to even speculate. Maybe they use the "second" pair of eyes to see the other dimensions they vanish to/pop up from ? The colours look promising, as for the look I'll have to wait for the adult to make out more details.

    Sorting between Ridgewing and Risensong maybe it's a Rift dragon, creating and/or traveling through rifts in space/time to other places/times/dimensions.

     

    As usual, I can't wait to see them grow up !

    What email are you using, and have you cheked the junk folders too? 

     

    I'm using gmx.de, and I've checked the junk folders repeatedly.


  18. That's great news ! Now more people sharing in the fun won't take anything away from it ! Statistically, I mean. I didn't mind that aspect so far, but it's still nice to hear it changed in this way.

    And an especially big thank you for keeping a fixed minimum !


  19. 100% support from me !

     

    About the name - how about "Legacy" ?

    As far as I know (not a native speaker) "inherit" is a passive verb. You can only inherit something from someone else, so the dragon that gives the boon having it called "inherit" sounds strange to me. Using the noun would help with that, "Inheritance". The correct biological term for things concerning the transfer of genetic characteristics seems to be "Heredity", but that's just the abstract term, not a concrete thing.

    "Legacy" is a bit abstract, too, but it is something you can both give and get. So the Arias could "give" the legacy of the preferred parent to the new egg, by magically strengthening the powers of that breeds legacy via their song. Assuming here that the breed of each dragon often comes with certain traits that affect personality as well as physiological markers. (At least those breeds that are described more like intelligent creatures often have a kind of own culture, to some extend.)

    Of course, that makes the whole thing more magical than biological, but I think that's both fair play in Valkemare. ;)


  20. I'm so happy with this release, I could write a whole wall of text about it ! But that would be a bit tedious, I guess, so...

     

    Dear spriter's (every single one of you), and TJ, many, many thanks for this marvellous release !!!

    Like so many others I actually love each sprite in this release (something that only very rarely happens to me), they are each beautiful, interesting, and very dynamic !!

    And that is true without even considering the reference.

     

    I'm a hopeless MCU fan. I never read any comics, I'm not a big fan of other superhero movies, but these just got me with their witty dialogue, lovable characters, and just plain "let's all have fun, but not be silly" attitude. It's like some great adventure movie a'la Indiana Jones, just with more focus on the characters (which is a good thing).

    That said - I adore the artful way in which these dragons reference the Infinity Stones. There's so much thoughful detail that went into those sprites to achieve it, while keeping them able to stand on their own as well. Each and every one of you spriters did a fantastic job in doing that ! And it's a great enjoyment to find and recognize all those details. (I think bloodyneptune already listed a fair amount of them. ;))

    And even the descriptions work both ways - they match the respective stones, but they also make sense if you just relate them to Valkemare and nothing else.

     

    Also, this release, like Endgame, gives me the possibility to enjoy looking back on all those MCU films, and the good times I had with them. And it allows me to share that enjoyment with others who feel the same, without shutting out those who don't care for the reference.

     

    Perfect idea, perfect spriting, perfect writing (typoes don't count!), perfect release ! :wub:

     

    I'd be perfectly happy if this was all we get for this DC birthday, because it is a lot, and it is a whole new level of designing and executing a birthday dragon set. Really special !

    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.

    Nahh. It's just that so far there were only two Brushes of Might, because SkyWolf didn't have one, not having a sprite in the cave. Now that they are an official spriter as well, with such a gorgeous dragon, bones will have three favourite spriters, some giant dwarf on a godforsaken planet will forge another Brush of Might, and we will discover that SkyWolf is able to wield it, because they actually were worthy all along, too. :lol:
