Lineage Terminology.

Recommended Posts

Another question :/ I just produced this egg (had no room *sad face*) but I am wondering what it would be called lineage wise: http://dragcave.net/lineage/fRfIu

I have heard it called a "double arc" lineage. or if it continues and swaps a "double helix" lineage.

If you want to post an image of your dragon, you'll need to host the image yourself or use images from the wiki.

But you don't need an image for your purposes, just a link. The correct link to post for a growing creature is a lineage link, not a view link.

 

In any case, that line is "messy". There is no coherent pattern to it; mismatching generations were bred together, creating a "messy" lineage. Even though each of the parents themselves aren't messy, they are messy when bred together.

Excuse my total ignorance when it comes to breeding, but I learn fast and I want to learn as much as possible wink.gif

 

I have a question (the first one out of many more I will ask for sure):

 

The result of breeding my two Frostbite Dragons: Male Female what would it be called? First Generation (1G I assume)?

 

If the question has been already answered, my apologies.

 

Thanks in advance.

2nd gen wink.gif The 1st gen are the CB parents themselves.

 

See the lineage of one such child of two caveborns: https://dragcave.net/lineage/qhQ4b - the parents are labelled "1" at the top, the child is labelled "2" at the top.

 

To see the lineage page of caveborns, just change the /view/ in their address to say /lineage/ like this:

https://dragcave.net/lineage/AEvqK and https://dragcave.net/lineage/JvpBv

Oh, I see. Thanks a lot for your help, Ruby Eyes smile.gif

Ok so I finished this lineage and now I'm not even sure what to call it?

5th EG something? It's the base pairs that are throwing me since they make a complete new breed.

I would consider that a "PB Hybrid", personally. It's about as close as we can get without being able to change the base.

 

Likewise, if the hybrid was checkered with something else, then I'd still call it a checker. I have a Frost x Geode checker in the works with Frost x Stone and Stone x Stone base, for example.

Cheers 11th that makes a lot of sense smile.gif

What is it called when instead of being a checker, the gender of the two different breeds switch each generation?
I don't have a great example but I will breed this male magi with a female water of the same lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/KDMMK

Thanks

Mostly, it's an alternating checker. To be more precise, it's a gender-alternating checker (others maybe color-alternating, like this).

Thank you for the quick reply, Ruby, and the extra info with a lovely example.

Hi all, I was wondering if this new line I'm starting has an official name? I'm working on a stairstep (my first ever intentional lineage project!! :D) but the colors are differing because I don't have any holiday dragons, heh.

 

 

 

I'm gonna keep alternating copper colors with different breed can blue females. Next is nebula! Assuming I can get it haha

@Nqli - as far as I know it would just be known as a stairstep. Pretty.

What do you call it when an even gen is PB except for another breed along the edge? Like this or this. Is there a name for that?

I've never seen a special name for that.

I'd call them "PB framed at the top/bottom with breed X". I don't know about official terms though.

I have it listed as a Double Spiral on my scroll. 

 

A typical spiral usually alternates back and forth with the offspring being male and female, rather than having two or three offspring being the same gender and then switching. I suppose double spiral (like you said) sort of fits. :P I think people may think of something a little different, though, when you say 'double spiral'. It almost looks like dragon wings or a mountain range. 

 

So to answer your question, I think this is quite a unique lineage and probably doesn't have a widely accepted name. A double spiral or double elongated spiral is probably the best way to describe it. (Elongated since the offspring doesn't change gender each time.)

I always called those spirals where it goes two or three or whatever before switching gender a staggered spiral. So I'd probably call it a staggered double spiral or something.
