Ides of March - Brute Breeding Day (Friday March 15, 2019)

Recommended Posts

Shush, I think I'm funny.

 

So I had mentioned in the past that I was thinking of doing an Ides of March Brute breeding and some people were interested so I figured I'd make it an event.

-- Friday 15 March 2019 --

 

What is it?

A day to breed your Brute dragons and exploit a really terrible historical pun!

 

When is it?

Friday, March 15, between the hours of 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM cave time!

 

What do I do?

Breed a Brute dragon or fifty! Make purebreds or checkers or mixed up all kinds of lines, even gens or stair steps or giant glorious conglomerates that might have had inbreeding somewhere along the line. Doesn't matter. Just breed with Brutes!

 

Wait, I don't get it. Why's this funny?

BECAUSE HISTORY! Julius Caesar, dictator of the Roman Empire, was assassinated on the Ides of March (March 15 in the Roman calendar), in 44 BC. Caesar had recently been given the title of "dictator for life," which made the senators a little concerned about their job security. So these two Roman politicians, Cassius and Brutus were like, "Somebody should totally just stab Caesar." Which is what they did. Then, like, a millennium and a half later, William Shakespeare writes a play about Caesar and his assassination. Caesar's final line is "Et tu, Brute?" or "And you, Brutus?"

So yeah. Puns and historical and literary references.

 

Is it kind of callous to be making puns about a guys assassination?

Yeah, maybe. But it's been like, two thousand and sixty years. I think we're past the "too soon" point.

 

What if I'm massively opposed to mass breeding of any kind?

I can respect that, but I'd like to keep this thread for organizing and discussion of this particular event. If you want to opine on mass breeding in general, there is a thread on mass breeding.

Any salad can be a Ceasar salad if you stab it enough. cool.gif

 

 

I love this idea. If I can log in on March 15th it shall happen! I don't think I've got any lineages going with my Brutes right now, but got plenty of CBs! They will probably be pleased with the attention.

Is there a specific time?

Nope, just any time that day so that it gets the "Egg Laid on: March 15, 2015" stat.

 

Some folks may want to double check their time zones, since some places will reach March 15 before the Cave time does.

 

 

Glad to see people are interested. happy.gif Should be fun!

No but really, this sounds fun. Not that many Brutes over here, but I'll definitely be taking part. x3

I only have one Brute, but I will be breeding that on 3/15. ^^

(Unless I get more between now and then)

Aw. I'd participate, but the 15th of March has a very different significance for me.

 

Good luck and enjoy yourselves, everyone! smile.gif

Please remind me though. I am terrible at remembering dates.

OH YES PLEASE!

 

I also love history and Shakespeare and bad puns! Please count me in, and I would love a reminder. I don't have a lot of Brutes, but they'll be glad of the positive coverage! :-D

I'm in! I've barely got any Brutes, but once I'm no longer egglocked I'll try to get as many as possible in time for the breeding.

March does come in like a lion.... If love the opportunity to collect more Brutes. I only have two, so I don't think I'm quite qualified to partake in this, but I'm certainly looking forward to it. <3

OMH (oh my helix) I am going to borrow this idea later if you don't mind. My Shakespeare love is now inspired with more Shakespuns!

 

Love it.
