Lineage Terminology.

Recommended Posts

I think this looks pretty cool, what kind is it?

WOW! I would kill for a lineage like that! It's really cool! I call it Mountain Lineage, blink.gif but maybe other people have a different name.

Back when Tinsel-kins first came out in quantities, the Stairsteps

were called Arrowhead when making a shape like this >

Stacking them like yours, katedj, then bcame called Zig Zag.

I never heard of them called Pennants before.

Since yours has an extra feature at the top, it would seem to be

considered an "almost" (Zig Zag, Pennants).

I've got an odd one. Got a few like this, actually, so I guess it must be intentional...

 

What do you call this lineage, which is a checkered stairstep where the initial pair are misgendered? (Ignore the final dragon, please. I know he's both a misgender and a misbreed.)

I don't think I've seen a name for that yet but hopefully we will get a few replies and maybe someone else has a name for it. smile.gif

I think of those "Pennants" as "Chevrons"

What do you call this? It's like a stairstep, but using 2nd gen instead of CBs.

I think I've seen that called a double staircase (but we'll see what others say smile.gif ).

ajrich,

I have only seen your example referred to as a Stairstep/Staircase term.

Nothing really noted for the beginning being reversed breed genders.

 

bantymom,

The things I have seen a long time ago called Chevrons were even gen

stuff to resemble military rank badges.

They have one breed in center that forms "<" and surrounded by another

breed. Unfortunately I don't think I have any samples of it.

 

Woof123Albinos,

Sorry if I am drooling with envy, your Golden Wyvern is indeed what

is referred to as a Double Stairstep/Staircase from I have seen. I have

not seen another name for it.

It's the lineage I'm most proud of smile.gif

What's "perfect even gen" as opposed to just "even gen"?

I don't know smile.gif Hopefully someone else will see this post and reply smile.gif

Here's what the Even/Perfect Generations thread says:

 

Perfect Generation is when you have reached a specific goal with your Even Generation-breeding. A Perfect Generation is always an Even Generation but with a bonus. For example; each and every dragon in the line is a Magi, or it’s all made up of Water/White-couples. A special goal has been achieved, more than just being Even Generation.

Here is the quote from the Even Gen Lineage:

 

Perfect Generation is when you have reached a specific goal with your Even Generation-breeding.  A Perfect Generation is always an Even Generation but with a bonus.  For example; each and every dragon in the line is a Magi, or it’s all made up of Water/White-couples.  A special goal has been achieved, more than just being Even Generation.

 

I am guessing it just means "it's perfect now, so quit while you are ahead".....

Hahaha. I'm planning to make an extremely inbred even gen (two CBs create two 2nd gens, then those two make two 3rd gens, and so on) with moonstones only. Would that be a perfect even gen, or just an extremely inbred even gen?

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be perfect. It matches the definition's criteria of reaching a specific, planned goal. wink.gif

Agreed, it is a specific goal so it would be a Perfect Even-Gen but since

they are only Moonstones, then it is also a Purebred.....

Purebred Perfect Even-Gen seems to me. Don't think you need to

specify the Inbred part unless you want to.

Thanks for the answers. I think I'll call them EXIB for EXtremely InBred biggrin.gif

Isuzu, I am afraid your lineage shown is not considered a Spiral.

A Spiral is where the bred dragon has a CB mate alternating evenly for

male and females.

This is sample of Spiral lineage: http://dragcave.net/lineage/hRS4h

 

If there are 3 same-gender cb mates together before changing

direction, I have seen that referred to as a Wave.

 

Perhaps someone else has seen a name for your lineage pattern and

could let us know.

I tend to refer to those as 'x-step spirals', e.g. two-step spiral. But wave definitely seems to be the more widespread term, so consider me seconding grammydragon on the formal terminology department.

Interesting, I haven't heard of Waves until now, thought it was a 3 step Spiral.

Thanks for clearing that up guys smile.gif

What would this be called?

I think that might be what some call a circle but we will see what others say. smile.gif
