  1. I really like how the raffle was reimplemented. The way it's designed ensures that everyone participating in the raffle has to be at least somewhat invested in the game, because of the mandatory task they need to do. Additionally, everyone who has a shot at winning a prize dragon had to enter it manually, so the people participating in the raffle are all actually interested in winning. I think, as a result, there will be a greater ratio of active prize winners from this new incarnation of the raffle, and the value of prize dragons will finally to start to go down significantly. Sure, there may be some downsides, and the lack of ability to choose a custom code is a little disappointing, but I'm personally very glad that the raffle is back, and significantly improved.
  2. Oooooh, I'd love to see Weather Balloons!
  3. I'm so happy to see that Bright Pinks and Frills have returned! Now everyone can collect all the sprites in Dragon Cave! Thanks so much to the original creators for allowing them to come back!
  4. Chrom Post #11 Unlocked DNA: Poison Dart Frog, Wax, Paper, Joshua Tree, Pillbug, Rose Petals, Rose Hip, Rose Thorn, Grass Seed Physical Description: A clear slime with four tendrils protruding from its body, and a small, visible nerve cluster forming towards its center with two eyestalks attached Things Chrom Can Do: Move, move individual tendrils, identify nonorganic vs. organic, identify different textures, detect pain, detect varying degrees of light/darkness As Chrom continued to move along, it noticed that the brightness was starting to become more . . . clear. It took on different forms, varied in intensity and frequency. Some of the brightness went away, only to come back again, while some it was constant, searing into the slime's retinas whenever they dared swivel upward. Upward wasn't that interesting to the slime anyway; even if there was organic up above it, it wouldn't be able to reach it. It was down here on its level that Chrom searched for food, and where it discovered the glitters. It was quite literally unlike anything Chrom had ever seen before. His young eyes fixated on the glitters, which shone briefly, before fading away. Everything they appeared, Chrom felt wet grazing against its body. The wet always came back, sometimes stronger than before. At first, Chrom had been excited, mistaking the movement of the wet for the movement of an independent organic like it. It had eaten some organic like that, the little pokey, crawly ones that it had consumed in its first moments of consciousness. The wet wasn't like those organic crawlies, though, because it was distinctly inorganic. Its movement confused the slime; it hadn't known that inorganic was able to move on its own. Strange. Pondering it wouldn't get the slime organic though. Indeed, its capability to even wonder about the wet showed that it was only getting smarter, which meant its young brain was getting even bigger. Without any fresh organic to fuel that growth, Chrom had begun to get hungrier. Yet again. The slime moved more quickly, eager to find something to satisfy it.
  5. Chrom Post #10 Unlocked DNA: Poison Dart Frog, Wax, Paper, Joshua Tree, Pillbug, Rose Petals, Rose Hip, Rose Thorn, Grass Seed Physical Description: A clear slime with four tendrils protruding from its body, and a small, visible nerve cluster forming towards its center with two eyestalks attached Things Chrom Can Do: Move, move individual tendrils, identify nonorganic vs. organic, identify different textures, detect pain, detect varying degrees of light/darkness (a work in progress) The stalks within the slime continued to grow as it ate the slender organic. Finally, as the slime managed to consume an entire batch of the organic material, it detected an entirely new sensation. An aching brightness suddenly revealed itself to Chrom, flooding into its fragile new eyes. They were far from complete, and the ability to see color was still a long way for Chrom. However, with the aid of the organic, they were now able to detect light. The slime, for its part, writhed uncomfortably. It did not like the brightness, so harsh on its new eyes ((even if it was as faint as the stars or the moon on a gloomy night)) but it seemed unable to escape it. For a few wretched moments, the slime's hunger and it's meal were temporarily forgotten while Chrom's eyes struggled to adjust. Finally, the pain seemed to dull, and Chrom relaxed. The strange new sense didn't seem to of any real use to the slime, so it ignored it, using the significantly more familiar sensation of touch to guide towards some more organic. The rapid growth within the slime seemed to have slowed now, so its hunger was no longer so urgent. Chrom couldn't ignore it's directive though, it's deepest of instincts. So, along it went, perhaps consuming more of that particular organic that had fueled the arrival of the brightness, or perhaps encountered something new to eat. It mattered not, as long as it was organic.
  6. Chrom Post #9 Unlocked DNA: Poison Dart Frog, Wax, Paper, Joshua Tree, Pillbug, Rose Petals, Rose Hip, Rose Thorn Physical Description: A clear slime with four tendrils protruding from its body, and a small visible nerve cluster towards its center The slime paused when it brushed against a distinctively organic object, and it began to probe it with its two closest tendrils. Forwards, they didn't have to go too far before they slid off the salty organic, and touched grainy inorganic. Sideways, however, the slime discovered the organic seemed to go on and on. This curious shape would mean the slime wouldn't be able to consume the organic thing as easily as it had some others. However, as long as the slippery, almost malleable organic didn't have any pointy-ouches, Chrom didn't mind. Precariously, the slime pulled itself across the organic's girth. Its tendrils snaked around the organic, and Chrom attempted to bore into it, slowly absorbing it section by section. It was just as well that Chrom had found a large meal, because the size of its nerve cluster was increasingly rapidly. Already, two bulbs had extended from the main network, hovering just beneath the surface of Chrom's skin. These unassuming bulbs, as yet nonfunctional, would likely serve as Chrom's eyes. In any case, the growth within the slime's body was burning an incredible amount of calories, and the slime was able to sense an awful hunger, kept at bay only through constant eating. Slowly but surely, the slime worked its way up the organic. It noticed that the texture of the organic changed as it burrowed into it, going from rubbery to slick, and then hard. Certainly, this organic was different than the variants Chrom had already consumed. If it were more intelligent, the slime might've paused to ponder it.
  7. Interesting breed. I like how we've been getting dragons with weird BSAs, sprite changes, and breeding rules this past year.
  8. Welp. Off to bed then.
  9. Still dropping in the cave!
  10. It's the fiiiiiiinal coooountdooooown~!
  11. They're still dropping, don't worry! They're just much less frequent now.
  12. Happy Easter! Good luck with the hunt, everyone!
  13. When you finally see a CB Silver, but you already clicked into another biome. :/
  14. Chrom Post #8 Unlocked DNA: Poison Dart Frog, Wax, Paper, Joshua Tree, Pillbug, Rose Petals, Rose Hip Physical Description: A small, clear slime with four tendrils protruding from its body The barbed pointy-ouches sunk into Chrom's body, and quickly began to dissolve. The slime's pain faded, with the pointy-ouches becoming rounded and dull. Chrom wrapped its body around the slender center of the organic, hoping to consume more of it. When the organic suddenly shifted, Chrom did not feel alarm, for it was not capable of feeling fear yet. It allowed the center of the organic to meld with its body before moving away, curious about the nature of the salty wet droplets. The feeling of tiny bits of wet against its porous body was a rather new sensation, and the slime paused to try and determine whether it could consume the droplets or not.They didn't seem to be organic, unfortunately, so the slime quickly dismissed them. It went back to absorbing the rest of the no longer pointy-ouchy organism, until it could no longer feel anything consumable against its body. The slime moved away again, using its tendrils to pull it along. Chrome felt its hunger return quickly as its body began to grow, so the slime started to probe its surroundings in search of more food.
  15. Mine are named Lovable Grump (surprised that wasn't taken!) and Ship Out of Water (in reference to the dragon's amphibious nature).
  16. Heh, I've never thought of it that way, but I do seem to have more cheeses than most people. -shrugs- Somehow, I just end up collecting them all when I'm trying to cave hunt for other stuff.
  17. Oh, guys, I just realized something! Considering this year is going to be a big anniversary for DC, the scrolls in the game represent almost all past Valentine's dragons, and the new Valentine's dragon seems a bit patchwork, maybe this year's dragon is supposed to be a homage to all the previous years' dragons!
  18. Patience. The eggs will be dropping for three days, this initial hubbub will calm down soon enough.
  19. -shrugs- I got the same thing.
  20. Ooooo, the codes on TJ's eggs say Match and Maker!
