Alternatively, what are people's favorite names for their Pygmies?

My two hatchies are Lilacflame (f) and Neonflame (m). ^-^ Dunno what I'll name the other two eggs I have yet. Also, I'm glad I was able to use 'mint' in the name of one of my GSDs and have it still fit my naming scheme. c:

 

Five hours until my first Magefire can grow up! *pokes it with a 'grow-up-faster-please' stick*

I named one pygmy "And They Call It A Mine."

 

I did snag the name "Hyena Dragon" for a still-growing Hooktalon.

Pygmy... wyvern? *head asplodey*

 

Does this mean they can only breed with their own kind? o_0?

Nope, you can breed Wyverns with other, 'normal' dragons. It's the Drakes that only breed with their own kind.

 

...I mean I can't be 100% sure as no one's have grown except TJ's, but I can't imagine the rules would be different for pygmies.

Soo, Marri's Pygmies have inspired me to practice more with my spriting. My little eggs are so pretty. :3

Fun question to ask! biggrin.gif Also, those really are a bunch of pretty little eggs!

 

I had just gotten finished writing something about the character when I was reminded of the birthday release, so, the fact that they have colored fire as a main trait made me think of the Disney's Hercules version of the greek god Hades. I kind of wanted my first three of them to be a trio, and so I named my first three to hatch, "Hades", "Pluto", and "James" (After his voice actor.)

 

Then, turned out that Hades was a girl, so I changed it to Persephone. =P

People are breeding them now. There's been Magelight x Pumpkin eggs put onto the Departures thread.

Oh, whoops! Haha, I guess I was fooled because mine are still a whole day away from maturing.

Well, to be fair, the time stamp on your post indicates you made it before midnight, which is the earliest anyone's could have grown up.

Magelight extra info by Marrionetta: https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showt...dpost&p=8795689

 

Magelights detect methane and other flammable gases in the air in the low parts per million, and extinguish their tails quickly to prevent catastrophic fire by comically shoving the ends in their mouths to smother the flame.

 

Magelights honk a bit like peafowl, and while capable of telepathic communication like other dragons, don't usually have a lot to say.

 

Their pointed beaks are used as a dexterous appendage, due to their lack of hands or wing thumbs. This specialized tool doesn't develop until near adulthood, and Magelights are particularly awkward and vulnerable in adolescence due to the lengthening of their phalanges and the sudden absence of manipulatable hands. Puberty sucks.

 

The oily, resinous secretion they produce as a firestarter can be harvested and used by humans, but its smell when inert and unburnt is particularly foul. Its odor is remnicient of a mixture of rotting oysters and low quality grain liquor. It can be condensed into an oleoresin block, which can be stored for a time and kept in emergency kits, but only in a metal cannister sealed with wax, as it tends to oxidize quickly and smell all the worse. It should be noted that pursuading a Magelight pygmy to produce extra oil for collection usually involves extensive bribery and begging on the part of the poor fool who assumed it'd be a good idea.

 

Magelight pygmies are opportunistic feeders and will eat just about anything.

 

They are social by nature, and seek out the company of other individuals of their species, other dragons, and humans.
