Lineage Terminology.

Recommended Posts

I have hunted and hunted I can't find out.

 

What is a "2nd Gen"

is that the child of caveborn parents or the grandchild of caveborns. 

 

For instance, is THIS a first or second gen.

 

Copper with Caveborn parents

That is a second gen.

 

i.e. a child of caveborn parents.

The caveborn generation is the first. Their child is the second. The caveborn's grandchild is third generation. Just count from right to left smile.gif

 

So far, I've only seen one person in the trade threads referring to the grandchildren as "2nd gen" ...

I'm creating a lineage that I love the look of, but, is there an accepted name for this lineage shape?

I've been thinking of it as a castle lineage, since the right side makes me think of the battlements on castle walls. If there's already a term being used for this pattern, I'll try to reset my brain LOL.

IIRC, there's a lineage type called Arrow? This should be a double arrow:p

 

Well done!

Um...do we need a NSFW (not safe for work) or similar warning on the link to the word codes lineage example in the first post, given it contains a certain word beginning with F in two of the first gen names?

 

Personally, it doesn't worry me, but I have no idea what age range people are here in DC?

The breed is called Seasonal, and this sample of yours is purebred, as far as I've observed in the various gifting and trading threads. It's a similar thing with Stripeds and Nebulas, I suppose.

I've been referring to this as an even-gen arrowhead or chevron. Is there some other name for such a thing?

I've heard people call them double arrowheads before

Thanks. I was just wondering if there was some sort of official name for them.

I like the idea of calling them "hearts". Hearts would be almost double arrowheads. Course, they can also become this that someone posted earlier, so maybe they're still just "arrowheads" (as opposed to arrows and reverse arrows, which are two kinds of mirrored stairs).

 

I think that double (or more) arrows should be referred to as claws or talons or some such, as they look like claws. But then again, I guess they're technically just mirror arrows or double (or more) arrows. Dragon claw would be a cool term, though. :P

 

Also I feel like "Rainbow" should be included in the first post, as well as something about Thuweds and Dorkfaces (and any other major names). Though rainbows aren't limited to a certain type of lineage, they can be done in several ways.

 

Possibly also add something like the incredibly inbred lineages? The ones that are even gen and have the same two dragons at the base, same two in the second gen, etc.

 

Those kinds of lineages are becoming more common. c:

Also might someone be able to tell me what this might be, if anything? I actually don't think it's really any particular thing, but I like it and sort of want to make a lineage with it. c: It looks related to the heart/arrowhead lineages a bit.

Is there a name for this type of lineage: http://dragcave.net/lineage/AAfrS/0fq9pVNn

 

Where one dragon is an EG, and the other is a stair of the same length. I find it quite interesting, as it can continue like a stair or spiral from an EG "base".

If it had a stair on the other side as well, I'd call it a pyramid or something.

Just found this in the AP.

I never came across a lineage like this and i think it's quite thoughful created and really should have a name.

It looks like a variant of the arrowhead lineages. It doesn't look as defined as they usually are, though. To me it looks like a fish.

I'm kind of curious. What would this lineage pattern be called if Clair (the black) was a female Silver? It's not exactly purebred as I have four breeds, and it can't be called a mirror/foil, either.

As far as I am aware a lineage like that doesn't have a special name. It would just be an even gen, I think. There are endless possibilities for the arrangement of breeds within an even gen, but most of them are not named.

That 3G female purple would also need to be a Vine for any kind of pattern to be present.

This one doesnt really look like much to me...

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/BXx3i

 

Another question, if i could ask it here; This dragon has de Bixen as well as Thuwed in the lineage, admittedly quite far off. Could it still be pulled out and be call [name] Thuwed de Bixen?

I'm afraid that is what one would call a "messy" lineage, which does not make it bad, and certainly not uninteresting. smile.gif It just doesn't have much value in the trade market. And you can certainly go as far back in its ancestry as you wish in naming it.
