The Indigo Clan | Nhiostrife Even-Gen | Charity Lineage!

Recommended Posts

🐍 Introduction 🐍

 

16982783828_602bcd9398_b.jpg

 

 

Welcome to the Indigo Clan breeding project. This lineage was created in honor of the Eastern Indigo Snake, a unique and federally threatened species native to the southeastern United States. Indigo snakes live in pine forests that need fire to grow and thrive and venomous snakes are their favorite food, making them a memorable icon of their fiery home. The breed used in this lineage is the Nhiostrife Wyvern, a dragon with a slender, snake-like body and scorching blue fire that perfectly represents indigo snakes.

 

We will be acting as conservationists, working to create a genetically diverse breeding population of our indigos. We will do this by creating as large of an even-gen lineage as we can through cooperation and teamwork, and we will also be going beyond symbolism - for every generation of this lineage, I and any other donors I can find will donate money to the Orianne Society, a group dedicated to saving Eastern Indigo Snakes, Gopher Tortoises, and other reptiles and amphibians! You can see their website here.
 

If you don't want to become a member but still want one of our lovely eggs, there is a waiting list that you can ask to be added to! The form is at the bottom of this post.

 

🐍How Will It Work? 🐍

 

When a species is threatened, capturing and breeding them can be a great way to help them recover. Genetic diversity is important as well, so we have to continuously collect new indigos from the wild to form productive breeding pairs and continue the bloodline. The more dragons we collect and breed, the more recognition and grants we will receive, which allows us to expand our operation.

 

The main line of indigos is owned and maintained by myself, so we will all be working together to breed a mate for our highest generation dragon. Our current generation can be found in our Clan Information post below.

 

Participating in the lineage will earn points. Points will increase the prestige of our breeding center and will also raise the reputation of whichever member is earning them through monthly leaderboards. Points can be earned by capturing CBs, breeding eggs, and releasing non-essential eggs. Non-essential eggs are eggs from pairs that have already produced at least one egg! This earns points because reintroducing our captive-bred dragons is an important part of species recovery, but also because it spreads the love of our lineage and is basically free advertising for the project!

 

For leaderboard purposes, the points will always go to the person who originally caught the CB/produced the egg, regardless of who gets it after that. Breeding non-essential eggs does not earn you breeding points, you can only get points from non-essential eggs by abandoning or gifting them.

 

This points system will lead to more prizes and fun opportunities as our breeding center expands due to all of our hard work being recognized by conservation funds.

 

Points:

 

  • Capturing a CB: +3 points
  • Breeding an egg: 2 x Gen Number (Ex: a 2nd gen egg is worth 4 points, 3rd gen is worth 6, etc.)
  • Abandoning/Gifting a Non-Essential Egg: +1 point 

 

Remember that every team member is important. You do not have to breed high generations to participate. You can help in whatever way you want - you can strictly be someone who catches CBs for other people, you can breed a lot of 2nd gen eggs to distribute, you could decide that you’ll only breed up to a certain generation - all of it is helpful and ANYONE can become a member! There is no minimum level of involvement required to join. We will thank you if you give us one CB nhio egg.

 

 🐍 Breeding Center 🐍

 

Our breeding center is where the entire main line of dragons is. Starting out with only a few basic amenities, the breeding center can be upgraded by earning points! As the center expands, new prizes and opportunities will become available. The breeding center is also where the main line of dragons is, so you can always send your dragons there by teleporting them to @igloo9201.

 

🐍 Rules 🐍

 

 

  1. ALL dragons involved in the lineage must have the surname "Indigo." This means that if you find a nice PB Nhiostrife even gen in the AP, or have 2nd gen PB Nhios that you didn't breed, the dragon can't be used for the project. Every dragon in the lineage must be an Indigo. So if you already have an even gen or PB 2nd gens, you will have to rename the parents.You can name your dragons anything you like as long as the word Indigo is at the end!
  2. Each egg laid must be reported in the thread! Eggs must be reported, confirmed, and PMed to me in order to be bred into the main line!
  3. No killing, biting, freezing, abandoning, or earthquake Indigo eggs/hatchlings needed for the lineage. Once one egg has been bred and kept from each pair, you are free to abandon or trade Indigo eggs. I just want to avoid people setting back progress by abandoning/tradings eggs that could be used to further the lineage. Killing/biting/freezing/earthquaking is never allowed.
  4. No inbreeding.
  5. Feel free to collaborate with breeding in the thread! Discuss who should breed with who, etc.

🐍 Breeding Center 🐍

Level 2

 

You approach the land that the breeding center sits on. So far the clan lives in a valley between two mountains, restricted to a small parcel of land at the foot of one of the impressive peaks. The shack has had some work done! The wooden boards are much straighter, and there is now a nicer-looking sign out front that says “Breeding Center,” and the door has a fresh coat of royal blue paint.

 

Current Perks:
We have enough resources now to give the #1 player on the monthly leaderboard a BSA egg OR hatchling of their choice! We will also give a BSA egg to the #2 player. Good for you.

 

Next Level: Level 3

Points: 140/150

Perks: $0.05 will be donated for each point the lineage earns!

 

August Leaderboard:

1. Serotina (8pts)

2. TheMysticFrog (6 pts)

Igloo: 47 pts

Notable Indigos & Milestones

 

Spoiler

First pair to ever be bred for the lineage: Zaffre (https://dragcave.net/lineage/ISTqd) X Silver Night (https://dragcave.net/lineage/lLQcB) | Both caught 2014

 

First of Each Generation: 

 

2nd: Celeste 50th In (https://dragcave.net/lineage/lLQcB) | Egg Laid 6/18/2014

Her name included "50th In" because she was the 50th Nhiostrife to have the surname "Indigo." This was before groups were available on DC, so I kept track of how many Nhios I had, and specifically how many Indigos I had as a separate count, by recording every single Nhio egg I got. This was also before we had a group lineage. When I bred these dragons, I had no idea they would someday be part of such a huge project!

 

3rd: Butterscotch (https://dragcave.net/lineage/oSLTZ) | Egg Laid 5/2/2016

Butterscotch's father, Blue Raspberry, is one of the Indigos I remember from childhood. The name was inspired by my love of blue raspberry candy. 
The name "Butterscotch" is so cute to me that it always made me smile when I saw her on my breeding sheet.

 

4th: Pixie (https://dragcave.net/lineage/VuUzg) | Egg Laid 8/30/2016

I had a feeling that Pixie was our first fourth gen!! I remember how excited I was when I got her egg. Back then, the project had just started. A fourth gen felt like such a HUGE accomplishment back then that I was so proud of Pixie. She'll always be special to me. Her name is Pixie because she's in the Blue Raspberry candy line via her mom, Butterscotch - her name is a reference to Pixie Stix.

 

5th: Zahkrii (https://dragcave.net/lineage/i0m4L) | Egg Laid 2/5/2017

I believe that Zahkrii was the highest generation dragon we had when the Indigo Clan became an actual public group lineage! So he is our proper starter dragon. Pixie is his mom! His name translates to "finite killing" in Dovahzul, which doesn't make a lot of sense. I just thought the words sounded cool together.

 

6th: Chari (https://dragcave.net/lineage/7PVyz) | Egg Laid 6/27/2018

Zahkrii's son! I have no idea why I named him Chari. Sometimes I give them really random names when I run out of ideas.

 

7th: Lucky (https://dragcave.net/lineage/LR4ok) | Egg Laid 11/4/2018

Reaching this milestone was insane! I was so excited about it that I named him Lucky. I think it was half because I felt lucky to have him, and half because I hoped he'd bring more luck to the project. He'll always be one of my favorite dragons.

 

8th: Shila (https://dragcave.net/lineage/rjhGu) | Egg Laid 4/2/2021

Our current highest generation, Shila. Every time I look at her lineage I feel completely floored. She has a lot of other lineage members' dragons as her ancestors. The 8th generation is the first one that just boggles me every time I look at it.

EDIT: I just went through my Indigos and I have enough pairs to make another 5 gen. It will take me a while to plan it out and prepare it but we're set up to make progress at least! I have some CB nhio eggs right now, if anyone wants to take them so I can focus on breeding, just let me know.

Glad to see us all making some progress! Congrats to Melanie on your first egg! Dark_sama has been added to the members list as well.

 

I'm only a few weeks away from getting a 6th gen egg, so that's exciting as well! I'm also working on a fourth gen that I will probably give to a member of the lineage.

Small update (idk if double posting is still not allowed for updates?), I'm really close to having another 5th gen egg but my pair hasn't bred for two weeks haha, hopefully I'll be able to get a 6th gen soon!

(I wanted to have more to report, but my dragons are being stubborn about laying eggs, haha)

I love that you guys are making progress! Don't worry about being slow, stubborn wyverns are something I'm really familiar with.

 

Dark_Sama, the names you gave your dragons are really cute, but I ask that you rename them so "Indigo" is at the end of their names! See rule #1. I'm sorry for any inconvenience, I just want the names to be consistent.

 I was giving them place-holder names and meant to go back and rename them, sorry about that! ^^;
