Lineage Terminology.

Recommended Posts

I just ran across a Red egg that is fairly close to purebred, I believe? I'm not sure how exactly it should be categorized. I'm incredibly new to any sort of lineages or even really caring at all where my dragons came from lol.

so, what do you think? I just picked it up on the AP today. Thanks!

This isn't a very common lineage to breed or randomly pick up from the AP, but maybe arrowhead lineages should be added to the list?

Man, I go away a few years and everyone comes up with these crazy lineages. Alas, most of my dragons are messy-lingeage'd. D:

I picked up 3 Hellfire Wyverns from the AP today. Was planning to used them for zombie fodder. I am still learning about lineages, but these looked like they might have some potential.

 

Could someone please tell me if I should keep and possibly trade them? (And how to describe them?)

The second one is a 4th even gen. The others would generally be termed "messy". I doubt you will be able to get anything for them as most users dislike inbreds.

All three are inbred. As many people frown on inbreds, you probably would not be able to trade them easily. (Though they do look nice. Totally up to you if you want to keep them just because they're pretty.)

A tinsel is a rare dragon given out as a prize that cannot be found in the cave. That kind of lineage is an even-gen.

Just to clarify: The link I gave out is an even-gen?

That kind of lineage is an even-gen because it is even on both sides.

Ah, okay. Thanks! Do u have an example of a rainbow lineage?

A very late reply but here are links to two rainbow projects.

Both should have examples of rainbow lineages.

 

 

moonstone, there was a firefly lineage http://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showt...9943&hl=firefly that was closed as it was inactive.

Wondering what term, if any, this lineage would be. Definitely not even gen.

unstructured is what I call them but others might call it something different

Ive been working on an insanely difficult lineage for almost a year,& its very close to being finished...but Ive never seen one made from these breeds(as the base breed is a geode)& its only recently been able to breed with OTHER breeds.

I geuss nobody has been interested in doing anything with that,but my lineage is HUGE,& almost ALL these eggs had to be bred from scratch,then rebred to partner in "set" & so forth..I havent put the many sets all together yet,but with the "partial lineage" super set in this link..WHAT would this type of lineage be called?(I thought checkerboard,but its kind of different).Please give me a clue what to call this thing(it will all continue in this exact type of breeding throughout rest of the lineage). unsure.gif

Thx for the help!

Rockin' On

Not sure when this common usage changed, but a checker used to be just 2 breeds alternating in a lineage, whereas a mirror was a Perfect Checker, where all one breed was one gender and the other the opposite gender???

 

The description of mirror given is not really clarifying things for me.
