Lineage Terminology.

Recommended Posts

Just to make sure, when you're counting gens, it's the highest gen, right? Not the one you're actually breeding for?

 

This would be 8th gen, not 6th gen?

 

I was so mad, I got 2 tinsels in a trade and they were both wrongly gendered and now I can't even make them match together in a pretty way because they're not the same. sad.gif It's either that, or try and make a wave. Could try that, since after reading this thread, that's a legit type of line.

zaverxi,

Your arrowhead is indeed an 8th gen. You count from the first row over.

Technically, I guess someone would say uneven-sided arrowhead if

you are trying to give more detail to make

sure someone knows it is not two 8th gens joined together.

And it is still pretty!

 

Wave, Spiral, Check-mark are all seen on the lineages.

 

 

Vaati,

I'm afraid I personally don't see a circle there. That looks pretty clear

an arrow head to me. Pretty one at that.

 

Pinkgothic, happymom,

I am not the authority on lineages (just very opinionated), and am

only commenting what I have observed so glad we agree on ideas!

I like your #-step spiral idea for the doubles especially as I had not

seen that before and it might eliminate misunderstandings.

Is there a special name for when you combine two PB even gens of different species, like this? Or would you just have to say "even gen from two different PB parents" or something?

dustpuppy,

Your lineage is pretty!

sorry that I don't recall there ever being any name reference for this type of

lineage other than even gen.

Hi Hisa,

It look like your first one is an attempt for Rainbow. It is 6th gen Even Gen,

and since the pattern reverses to repeat, I would call it a mirror also.

 

Your second lineage with the Blacks is 5th Even Gen, but I don't see a pattern

to give it any further naming. Perhaps someone else has other idea?

Yeah, I don't think there's a special name for that. It's a combination of 2 different lineages- the top is Black from Marrow starters, and the bottom is a Black-X-White checker.

Well...actually not.

 

Looks like you have a stairstep with a lovely and unusual two breed

pattern. A spiral would have a 2nd breed alternating around the

main breed in the center. Like this: http://dragcave.net/lineage/b9Igf

Good to know. I figured working with pygmies might be interesting, as I've not heard of anyone doing much with them.

I'd call it pretty.

 

But everyone else will probably call it a zig zag also.

 

Nice!

Pretty is a really good word. xd.png

 

I've heard people call that an E shaped lineage.

8g PB EG right?

 

I just got this dragon and... Uhm... I think for base there's 128 dragons .___.

 

If I wanted to make something similar to this... How much dragons (for base) would it take for a 13g EG? Cause now I'm wondering how much work that's gotta be .___.

Saynna,

 

correct, that is an 8th PB EG;

and correct again, there are 128 cb's for base/first generation;

and to make a 13 gen you will need 4096 cb's!!

and lol, depends on the "refusal" rate you get, but it is going

to be some awesome work, looking forward to your posting the

finished lineage!!
