I can't honestly see why they would HAVE to be for Hallowe'en ? I think they are fab and a great addition to the REGULAR breeding pool.

Yes! I agree they could have been great Halloween dragons, but I'm glad they won't have the holiday breeding restrictions.

I'm lucky, they are at their brightest at around 1pm for me, so when there is no school I get to see them glow all day tongue.gif

My biggest disappointment with these guys is that, because I'm 5 hours ahead of EST, I am pretty much never going to see them at their shiniest. sad.gif But they're awesome anyway, thanks Fi and Verridith! smile.gif

Get up earlier?

6 hours ahead of DC time, but for work I have to get up at 5.15 in the morning, so that's exactly the right time to see them shiny. Just have to get my phone and look at them smile.gif

Bet my dogs will watch me watch my dragons and wonder, what's so Special laugh.gif

Pft, that's easier said than done. I'm having trouble to get up on time 1 hour before cave maintenance, which is 8am for me ...

We thought you guys might enjoy some of the lore behind these guys.

 

Have you ever been outside alone at night? It can be kind of spooky, especially if it's really dark out. If you should spot one of these guys you'd immediately feel safer.

 

That's because the glow isn't just light. It's light mana based. They dispel dark mana in the area, warding off some of the threats of the nighttime. Spirit wards are nocturnal. They will roam the countryside at night, not just hunting for food but watching out for weary travelers who were caught out by the nighttime and are hurrying to get to a safe refuge. They don't usually act directly but will remain nearby, dispelling dangers with their glow. The intensity of their magic is under their control, and they'll ramp up the glow for greater threats or let it fade if there's not much out there to worry about.

 

They're a good sized dragon and can look pretty tough, so most normal predators don't want to tangle with them. Because of their magic creatures who might be disposed to have nasty tempers will either avoid them or be soothed into a less aggressive attitude anyway, so not much threatens spirit ward dragons.

so purple!!! I didn't see them but once before I went to sleep, so I didn't know they get brighter as the night goes on?

I rarely see the Nocturnes in their blue phase, looks like I'll miss out on this most of the time too. Bummer as their night view is pretty stupendous. Am also in the camp of wanting that toggle button to make their 'glow' view the one I always see.

At their brightest @ 3 am :0?

 

What does that mean

 

(Ugh, I leave for a couple of days and this happens, lol)

They change color depending on what time it is. Around 12:00 cave time when their glow is the brightest.

I was lurking in the Alpine to look for metals and snagged a Cheese dragon instead, not what I was looking for, but wow I feel lucky. biggrin.gif

Oh my stars... All the stages are beautiful, but that brightest coloration is phenomenal. Absolutely my favorite coloring of any dragon we have! Such amazing work!!!

 

I wish that they would change hourly throughout the day so I could see that coloration more often - but I'll take what I can get. wink.gif

Yes, I am also happy that they are not Halloween dragons, with the breeding restrictions. That would have messed up a lot of plans for breeding them.

 

Can't wait for mine to grow up.

so if i was a wizard/warlock/sorceress these would be prime candidates for being a Familiar wub.gif

 

 

if so, what would happen if they were linked with an evil sorceress, given their effect on "evil" creatures. would the bond corrupt them? or would they neutralize the evilness in the magic user?

 

 

/musing

 

sorry i play a LOT of D&D xd.png Paladins & Clerics would totally want these guys as their animal companions FYI!!

 

edit 2 - can they be corrupted?? if so, what happens to them?? does the glow change?? o_o

I am obviously not Fiona, but if they're mostly light magic oriented why would they choose to bond with an evil person to begin with? xd.png

Maybe they were forced to bond?

Pretty much this. I don't think you can force a creature to be a familiar since it's a symbiotic bond. They have to be willing.

Maybe since their evil-repelling glow is controlled by them, what they repel is actually dependent on what they BELIEVE is evil.

 

Following this line of thought, if they were raised among evil they would repel good because they were raised as villains.

 

Kinda scary, if these guys could turn to the dark side. blink.gif
