Lineage Terminology.

Recommended Posts

This is also an even-gen lineage, but does this pattern have a name? https://i.imgur.com/pYtAUew.png

Looks like something really nice for large lineages to see the pattern better.

 

Also, is there a specific name for a stair/spiral where the breed that is continued changes every generation? I saw one with all different dragons and thought it was very pretty wub.gif

 

Edited for typo's tongue.gif

I believe the name of your first example is a mirror.

I asked about this in the Tiny Little Questions thread, but hopefully it's OK if I ask here, too. See, I have a lineage pattern that doesn't seem to have a name yet.

In case there is no specific name for this pattern, may I suggest one? I personally termed it the Hand lineage since the four CBs look like fingers on a hand.

I saw your question in Tiny Little Question and was going to suggest you try

posting here.

 

I have seen this pattern in the past referred to as a "heart", since the

arrowheads seem to take shape with one more gen in the stairstep portion

of the lineage than you have.

 

Someone had a lineage format called Hearts and Arrows... I have some

of it.

Thanks. I get confused because I don't know what the opposite of "messy but clean" is since they seem to be opposites already. :\

I just bred a Silver Tinsel from two lineages that had different types of Stairsteps.

Does this type of lineage have a name? I just spontaneously called it "the puzzle lineage" because the two sides look like fitting pieces of a puzzle.

ladyvidel,

Congrats on your "alternating stairstep" lineage! That is really nice and

effective use of the lineage form.

Is the term lineage swap similar to blood swap? If not, how are they different?

Would this be a stairstep?

Yes, this is a stairstep lineage.

 

Is the term lineage swap similar to blood swap? If not, how are they different?

Difference *may* be that a blood swap also means the same breed of egg while lineage swap only refers to the lineage, not the egg itself.

 

E.g. with checkered lineages, you basically want 2 eggs from the same kind of lineage, but different breeds, like a Pink/Red checker, you want a Pink egg from Pink and Red parents as well as a Red egg from Pink and Red parents.

Now if you only have one caveborn Red and one caveborn Pink, you can get more 2nd gens by trading them. So, you have a 2nd gen Pink already and need a Red one now (from different parents, if you don't like inbreeding), so you breed your existing pair and offer the resulting egg in trade.

If your pair made another Pink egg, you want a lineage swap: same type of parents, but the other breed (Red egg).

If your pair made a Red egg, you want a blood swap: another Red egg from another Pink/Red pair.

 

Generally, if you use any of those terms, it might be a good idea to clarify anyway: if you want a Pink *or* a Red egg from the same pairing, or if you don't care because you want to build a BIG checker and need many eggs anyway. biggrin.gif

Hey guys, I was wondering, does anyone have an example of a wave lineage?

 

I messed up with a spiral, and I was told I could make it into a wave so I can get the right gender.

Also, while I'm here, I was thinking, should I do a pair for this with the same kinda lineage?

Also also, I waqs thinking about doing a lineage with Soulpeaces, do you guys think that a Bleeding moon would make a good mate? I enjoy the fact they're opposites.

This here would be a 3-step wave: http://dragcave.net/lineage/xOT50

The dragon is male, so the following 3 generations would continue with female Whites.

 

And this here would be an interrupted 3-step wave: http://dragcave.net/lineage/dSYec

The dragon is male, so the line would continue with 2 more female Luminas, then swap genders once, then go back to 3 more generations with female Luminas.

 

Regarding Soulpeaces: If you ever want to get a Soulpeace from breeding a Soulpeace with something else, do *not* use Bleeding Moons. These days, they are very dominant with their eggs. Likewise, Nhiostrifes and Seragammas wouldn't be good ideas either.

Thanks for the wave help,

 

Also, what would you suggest with the soulpeaces? Also, what kind of lineage? I was thinking even ones, but that's very very hard work, and I have no idea.

Dorkfaces and Thuweds aren't a lineage pattern. They are the name/s of specific dragons. Dorkface originally started when ladiefarie got a gold and threatened it to gender one way. It of course didn't listen (this was before influence and teleport and you just had to keep trying for the gender you wanted) so it was saddled with the name of Dorkface. People found it funny and it became popular. Thuwed means dragon in Saurian (a video game language - DC announcements used to be done in Saurian as well). TJ's dragons are named in Saurian. :3

 

If you want to share cool lineages you've found, here is the Great Lineages in the AP thread: http://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=125427

Can anybody tell me, what I actually bred there?

I had two spiral gold x reds and they produced for the first time together:

this here.

 

Now it clearly is "mirrowed", but a mirrowed 'what', if the question makes any sense. unsure.gif

It is not a spiral, not an even gen, not a stairstep... but it certainly isn't messy.

So what is it (and how do I continue it)?

I would really be grateful if somebody could clear this up for me.

Mirrored spirals, possibly. A beauty in any case smile.gif

And I suspect that for continuation you'd need another one of the same shape.
