Unofficial Dragon Cave Discord Challenge

Recommended Posts

Welcome! To the Unofficial Dragon Cave Discord Challenge (DCDC)!

 

What is the challenge?

Starting Monday, February 26th, 2018... we will be going 55 weeks trying to produce the longest lineage possible (with a cohesive pattern). We are giving a week for each holiday in order to account for the need to CB hunt, though it is not against the rules to continue during this time!

 

Why should you participate in a challenge lasting over a year? Good Question.

Every member who joins this project, will be offering a prize (sort of like a poker pot) at the end of this project. Depending on how many members this project gets, prizes will be split between first, second, and third place; possibly to fifth if we get tons of people. First place gets first pick (enough to lock them), second gets second, and so on. We will also be choosing honourable mention prizes!

 

Rules:

  • All lineages must be in stair or spiral format.
  • One of the base dragons MUST have a "Stolen on" date of February 26th, 2018 or later. The other may be a previously existing dragon.
  • All dragons in the final lineage must be on your scroll, and all dragons produced/used in the project must be in your linked Competition group.
  • Inbreeding is allowed.
  • You may assist other competitors.

 

The competition ends Monday, March 18th, 2019

One person does all the editing/collecting here and since I don't believe myself to be perfect, if I hyperlink something incorrectly or mis-rank someone, just ping me with the correct info. My brain is dead late at night, and unfortunately that's basically the only time when I'm on the game. Thank you :)

Note: As of April 10th, 2018, my brother @Auferstehung is the new moderator of the project. Tag him if you need anything :)

This challenge would not exist if not for the awesome - and somewhat insane - minds of the Unofficial Dragon Cave Discord! If you have Discord, it's an awesome place to hang out with other DragCave players! Here is the link :)

Yay! This looks cool!! 

 

I'll leave here some examples of some long stairs projects to see if people gets motivated, as well as my participation form:

 

A New Challenger Enters!

Scroll Link (optional): http://dragcave.net/user/okura
Forum Name: ninish
Today's Date: February 24th 2018

Starter Dragon: The Pink Lilly (my first cb pink! To make this more special :D) 

Challenge Group Link (required): https://dragcave.net/group/46376

 

After much consideration I *will* be doing a BSA spiral. Easy, practical, and since it contains one of my starter pokémons dragons it feels like I'm continuating her legacy. (´ヮ`)

 

~~~~~~

 

For other competitors, a reminder that for building your line, if at least one of your dragons is of a common breed it will make things easier. Also reserving aside 2-3 purples to work exclusively with your lineage would be a good idea (as fertility reduces risks of refusal), and some pinks and reds. 

 

Example stairs and spirals:

 

Long pygmy stair

https://dragcave.net/lineage/DdF6u

 

Purebred stair of a common breed

https://dragcave.net/lineage/PolDY

 

Mixed breeds stairs

https://dragcave.net/lineage/mSv97

https://dragcave.net/lineage/1IfPL (courtesy of @11th!)

 

'Purebred' spiral

https://dragcave.net/lineage/87HfP (it includes both variants of a breed in an alternating pattern) (courtesy of @Ruby Eyes!)

 

Purebred spiral (though it follows a patterned coloring) (courtesy of @Mow)

https://dragcave.net/lineage/JePeI

 

Patterned lines:

 

Well, strictly patterned lineages such as the following will be a pain to advance and will play against you when the aim is to make the longest line in the shortest time, but who can stop you? Go for it if you want to! 

 

A reminder though that the challenge is simply to produce the longest line, no breed pattern is required of you for the competition!! 

 

 

Alternating time stair
https://dragcave.net/lineage/IZtbA (you can only breed/hatch your eggs within a set timeframe) 

Alternating colors stair
https://dragcave.net/lineage/vqT9r (you'd have to toss any egg that is not of the correct color) 

Alternating breeds stair
https://dragcave.net/lineage/3ohNA (you'd have to kick away any egg that is not of the correct breed) 

 

Alternating breeds spiral with mixed mates https://dragcave.net/lineage/mlOLv (same as above, you'd have to keep the eggs of the 'central' breeds - avatars in this case). Courtesy of @Ruby Eyes!

Spiral with cb holidays
https://dragcave.net/lineage/7PMBN (this one has the advantage that it won't give you the wrong breed most of the year, but it has the disadvantage that you need lots of cb holidays to continue to produce it).

 

 

 

~~~~~~

 

Does anyone have an inbred line, a z code line and/or a coded line they'd like to show? I don't have any of those. Or a pb spiral and a spiral of mixed breeds. (´ー`)

If you want any sort of z code lineage, ping fosterson XD

 

Also, good post. I'm sure the clarification is useful :P

Would lines like this: https://dragcave.net/lineage/87HfP (wave-shaped) or this: https://dragcave.net/lineage/mlOLv (very mixed) also be allowed?

I like the idea of this, I'm just still deciding what to do!


For sure!  Those are both beautiful examples of spirals! The key is that your lineage looks planned out, even if the dragons included are a little random.

 

I was going to do something quite intricate with dusk pygmies, but a misbreeding would be problematic., so now I've just decided it's a BSA staircase.  I may still TRY the pygmy line, because the idea I have is beautiful, but I think the BSA stair will give me the best chance of success. :)

Challenge Group Link (required): https://dragcave.net/group/46346 - Note the pygmy in the group, I'm going to TRY my dusk pygmy line if I can catch a Nilia on Monday, but the BSA stair or spiral is my true entry.  Just keeping track of both!  Want to know how far I can get with a specific lineage in 55 weeks versus a vague idea.

Oops! Yes. As Thaliana mentioned, the goal is just to create a lineage with a stair or spiral format. The dragon breeds used can be anything in any pattern (or lack thereof), as long as the basic template is consistent. (ex. This would still count as a stair.)

 

There are probably better examples out there that could have been used in the first post, but everything was pulled together fairly quickly last night. |D;

As long as it has some sort of theme (like how the very mixed has various guardians) I don't see why not. 

I plan on having a night-time themed very mixed myself. Any dragon that is associated with night time. Such as nebula's, royal blue's, spirit wards, etc.

Just to check, the pattern doesn't matter with breeds? Like if its one breed for awhile, then two, then one again, and so on, its all good?

 

I just see the word pattern and it feels like the breeds have to match the pattern heh

Updated with my starter dragons (the first was caught this morning, and will be fogged until tomorrow morning. It's a howler drake, and the second is a night glory drake).
