Which Xeno type did you end up with? I always find myself thinking of certain ones as more masculine as others as more feminine. 

 

it's an Astrapi - like it's father... either way it makes an awkward pairing - an astrapi like dad or a gaia like mom... or say screw the points lol and go for a 
Thalassa?

I've almost figured out the 10-franc pattern I want to do for Prince Telephore's line!

A Thalassa maybe?

You really come up with the most gorgeous lineage patterns! That looks gorgeous. I agree with @Mak0, perhaps you could consider a Thalassa to wrap up the line? Then it'd seem like the line has come "full circle" since it ends with the same pairing as what it began with.

Maybe. The thing is, I only have 2 of each title (1 male 1 female) except the royal titles. On the other hand, I don't own the CB Duc, so it might be nice to own two of each non-royal title...

 

And thank you Minx! I love lineage building, but I keep making too many to keep up with XD

Hehe I'm just the same! I love them, but I've never really done anything with them.

At least you're one step ahead of me. :P I keep plotting these lineages in my head, but still haven't gotten down to putting them on (virtual) paper. With an awesome lineage builder tool like Heart of Blue's, I really have no excuse for being lazy. :ph34r:

A teacher reccomended it one year, and I've used it ever since. I've also been using it for the imperial harem lineage.

I'll have to add the website to my bookmarks - thank you very much for sharing! :wub:

 

You're so excellent at mapping out these beautiful lineages. I agree that another Thalassa might balance out the line well, since the others are at the beginning of the lineage. I'm sure whatever you end up going with will be beautiful and I can't wait to see!

I'm in the same boat - I need more! They're quite beautiful, I just haven't gotten around to collecting yet, but now I have an excuse to!

Ooo, personally I think I'd say forget about the points and go for a Thalassa, but I really really like Astrapi with Thalassas. :P

I'll go add you to the lists now (and you'll get a more formal welcome later tonight)! :) The King thanks you for pledging your loyalty. 

 

We have no official graphics requests forms as of right now. The jars in particular were also made by @MinkishMinx so I shall let her answer your question!

 

EDIT: All added to the lists. I've also added in the franc that you earned for joining!

Awsomesauce!

 

Now for the hard part. Renaming those Xenos!

 

Also thinking maybe groups for both THEM and my Imperial harem Gemshards are an order...

@Ninjakittee welcome on board! :D

 

@Ariento what would you think about typing up a brief explanation on how to use Heart of Blue's lineage maker that we can feature in one of the main posts? (I'm sure @Rekha would find this worth some francs!) I'm playing around with it now and realizing I have no idea what I'm doing at all. It only seems to want to allow me to create even gens, when I want to go for a stairstep pattern. Halp? :blush:

 

ETA: I sorta (not really...) figured out stairsteps, but not spirals.

I'm not much of a lineage girl but even I can see how much thoughts and love you have poured into this project. Wow.

 

I hope it's okay if I leave a little gift for one of the courts here even if I'm not taking part in the project:

 

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. But... where are its legs?

(I kept the right ones out uses the power of time magic to create an illusion of the future, revealing that this hatchling will be female.)

 

Wow thank you so much for your very kind words and your gift!! What a precious little baby it will be well used.

I think that may be very franc worthy indeed actually!

 

@MinkishMinx and any others talking about Placeholders, I don't see any problem with nabbing names as a place holder while waiting! I did that for my Court.

Oh my dearest subjects you have all honored me with your pledges of loyalty to my Court. I am certain that with your aide and your assistance we will regrow these lands and allow them to flourish and grow to be more beautiful than ever. I am pretty sure that my Husband wont even notice with His sticking to the inside of the Courts. Don't worry about His silly manners I am the only One that you need to worry about pleasing. It is with good faith and excitement that I welcome the following members to my Court.

@TempestSea, @MinkishMinx, @Ariento, @Mow and @Ninjakittee 

I look forward to many years of working together to perfect this Court and make the Kingdom shine better than it ever has in its "glory" days. For it is with our efforts that we will show this Kingdom the true meaning of Glory Days for those are just now beginning.

I have awarded the Court with 13 francs for all of our pledges of loyalty, for some heraldry that has shared our Kingdom with others and for the lovely artistry that has gone into assisting with that heraldry.

|| A Word from His Majesty ||

 

"Welcome to my most honored and loyal subjects, @Mak0 and @JavaTigress. Your pledge of loyalty to the King of Occitanie brings me joy, and I look forward to seeking your council on matters of the Court. My wife seems unaware that quality reigns over quantity when it comes to politics. No fear. Our Court will soon outrank the Queen's in more than just name.

 

For your loyalty and heraldry of the Court, I have added 5 francs to the Treasury. With your bountiful kindness and achievements, the Treasury will soon overflow.

 

Your names have been placed in high honor within the Hall, as well as added to the appropriate waiting lists. Soon the Hall will be as beautiful and splendid as its courtesans."

 

- King Florian Beaumont of Occitanie

Perfectly acceptable, I'll fix that now. 

 

To answer your question, offspring from the royal affair pairings will still be considered a prince/princess, though they are illegitimate. I'll consult with @Rekha when I return after my nap and we will discuss adding to either the true royal offspring's titles or to the illegitimates' in order to differentiate on our scrolls. Great question!

Alright, so when you first see open the lineage builder, you're going to see this:

 

01.png.ca8dda2c193ea2aad85d6f58b0069c68.png

 

This box is going to be the final product of your lineage. Click the box, and a menu will appear. Click the dropdown to pick a breed and a gender (this is the only one you can pick a gender for, the rest are automatic to match how lineages are set on the site), then click save. I'm going to do a Night Glory Drake since I don't feel like dealing with the dimorphism just yet. I also clicked the shrink icons button, to make it look closer to how lineages look onsite.

 

02.png.abf6d80f8786e2aa4ced8b90787f2c8b.png

 

Now, what we have here is a caveborn, since it has no parents! Let's fix that - click the "expand" button to give the dragon you've selected parents. I'm going to make the parents both Day Glory Drakes, because I love weird alternating things.

 

03.png.048926810cf555eff989880a2cccc294.png

 

I'm going to make an arrowhead here, but you can do any sort of pattern you can think of! I'm going to click expand on both parents to give the Night Glory some grandparents.

 

04.png.218e31cfc1f8cc14fbcdf84847f9e94c.png

 

I paired the Night Glory grandparents with Howler Drakes. Now, if I was doing an even-gen I would click expand on all four grandparents. But I'm doing an arrowhead, so I'm only doing it on the Night Glory grandparents - the Howlers are going to be CB. I'm going to add Day Glory and Honey Drake great-grandparents, yay alternation!

 

05.png.fc58d7a4197da9f38dac798d7f7927d6.png


I'm going to continue only adding parents for the Day and Night Glory Drakes until I'm satisfied with the length.
