The Release History Of Dragon Cave Spiral

Recommended Posts

I have a male Purple from two days after their release, and I'm pretty sure he had this look right from when he grew up.

https://dragcave.net/view/GFi5

IF that strange curly thing has ever been active, it must have been rather short. Possibly even only in TJ's own adults.

 

A good hint is the revision date of the current male Purple sprite: /latest?cb=20100330013554 which means it must have been active already 4 days after the release.

 

I'd say we can attempt a lineage with zombies at a later time, as a side quest for necromancers or somesuch XD

 

(I'm off for the weekend so that's all I can contribute for now. I'd totally be up for a Drake project as well, by the way. I should have Ochredrakes from back then.)

That's a pretty good tip! :3

 

It's possible the other purple sprite was only in the Dimorphism design thread before that got whispered away (fffffff there was a thread like that, right? e_e RIGHT? Please tell me I'm not just thinking of my own compilation of dimorphic sprites that got locked and archived after the mods decided (several days later) it was spoilers? T_T), although why the wiki would list it as 'Old Sprites' I'm not sure. Anyone with a better memory around here? XD

 

[ Edit: Asked in TLQ. Looks like it probably was just an early design! ]

Awesome. ^_^ I'll note that down.

Yeah, we're still looking! Awesome; they're not pre-fog, but they're the oldest mentioned so far! I suspect you're not willing to rename them, though, especially given two of them have descriptions. XD (That doesn't necessarily disqualify them! But I do always have to ask, since it would be so sweet.)

Okay, not release date (2009-07-15), but close: 2009-07-23 and 2009-07-25, her parents: https://dragcave.net/lineage/Xrdk

Better than I have! My oldest CB Ochredrake is a male from the 1st of August 2009.

 

I'll add these to the caches in the second post tomorrow. ^_^ Done!

This is such a cool idea! I wish I could help with the first few generations, but I didn't join until 2015. Won't it be extremely difficult to get offspring from the original Holidays (especially Hollies) and Prizes though?

We can always make two versions of the spiral, one with and one without the holidays. Just branch out somewhere in 2007.

Probably! Which is why we generally just try to get close to the release date in the early phase, rather than spot-on. Even getting someone with pre-fog dragons is going to be next to impossible (unless we magically recruit TJ himself, in which case we have all the first-release dragons we could ever need XD).

Also an option!

 

Speaking of branching out, I have good news and bad news. ❤️

 

The good news is that A Short Dragon Cave History and Of Two-Headed Dragons like each other. The bad news is they gave me a split, when I wanted a bloodscale. XD https://dragcave.net/lineage/8qyzF - does anyone want to play around with this boy? I'll try again with breeding a bloodscale next week (and probably the week after that, and...). Eventually we can start parallelising to minimise hold-ups like this, but the beginning's always going to be tough like this. :)

 

To avoid breeding ennui, I also have A Short History to try, although I would prefer getting a bloodscale from A Short Dragon Cave History (because A Short History has offspring used in lineages already, and if he can ultimately keep his name, I'm sure the fella would appreciate it - nothing's named after his old name, so it's not pressing, but it does generate a preference ^_^).

I wouldn't mind renaming my two described. :D They will just get blanked/new descriptions. It wouldn't be the first time I quietly changed a name or description on my dragons (they seem not to mind :P). The only time I would never-not-ever rename something is if it had offspring named after it, which is not the case here!

Oh, wow! (Also, sensible policy - I have much the same one ❤️.) Now you are so my go-to for those parts of the spiral. XD

 

@jumpsnake Are you still wanting to start the line? (Sorry to tag you and bother you with that if the answer is "yeah, d'oh! I'm working on it", I don't want to rush you. XD This is purely a reminder in the off-chance you forgot about this thread. Also that if you want to start the line, you should PM me with times we can sync, so we can transfer those names to you.)

 

(Edit because I'm scatter-brained):

Pygmy Lineage

Also, surevesta's supreme kindness is showing again, and I picked up this 3G Common Pygmy as a line starter. I am still looking for someone who has female Crimson Flare Pygmy from the release date (and would be willing to rename the lady when we get going). I'll be happy to pass you the 3G as a hatchling if you say "I do!", whoever you are.
