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.

I've got the common pygmy now, and a crimson flare to pair with it.

 

What should I be renaming the crimson?

Better than my oldest crimson flare lady! https://dragcave.net/view/QYjU5

So if nothing better had come along, I totally would've let you take the 3G boy. XD

 

That said, it turned out Sethiss has a release-date female crimson flare. ❤️

@pinkgothic

sorry, RL got a bit crazy. I’m still here, just been a bit scattered. 

I’ll pm you. 

No problem at all! I totally understand how that is. I mean, I really, really do. XD My Wednesday and Thursday were exciting. I travelled to my mum's place to housesit/catsit for her while she was in hospital (nothing bad! Just a preventive operation she'd been putting off). I made the mistake of trying to do home office instead of taking vacation days for it, each work day bifurcated by a very, very long taxi ride (because my mum spared no expense and is a little crazy; but make no mistake, I love her).

 

I am knackered. XD Caffeine is helping. So glad it's the weekend!

Thank you so much for helping the project out! ❤️ As I mumbled at you in IRC, the names are basically up to you, but you could try calling them something along the lines of "The History Of" x "Dragon Cave Pygmies". i'm also happy to brainstorm potential names with you tomorrow, if you feel like it.

 

Updates! All in one place.

Pygmy Lineage

We're waiting for surevesta's donation to grow up on Sethiss' scroll and Fertility to prevent a horrible refusal. :D If you have a male Dark Myst Pygmy from the 21st of May, 2011, please let us know in this thread, PM me, or get in touch with Sethiss in PM directly about offspring. ^_^

Two-Headed Lineage

This babbie has hatched. It's influenced male for a spiral, but as previously mentioned, it's technically the wrong species to continue the project.

 

If anyone wants it, I am absolutely willing to give it away! ❤️ Otherwise I'll keep it on my scroll and name it something vaguely project-related, even though no one is likely ever going to come that way, since it's a branch off to the side.

 

I am still waiting for the parents to come off breeding cooldown for a retry. :) The first bloodscale offspring will go to Dracaena.

 

Main/Regular Lineage

I am in touch with jumpsnake in PM about getting the starter pair names transferred. Looking forward to getting this started! ❤️ First offspring will get juggled in Dirtytabs' direction, unless someone with older dragons of the following species swoops in.

Speaking of names, I've removed the name on my green lady and changed her description (that's how not-picky about this one's descrip I am ;D) so any suggestions for a black fact or remark I could name my pair? The Black Egg Sprite's Glow / Was Added in January 2009?

Ooh, that is a very nice fact! :D

 

One of the things I remember was the time when the alt blacks had a different egg sprite, clogging the (then-blocking) AP with regular black eggs. Teehee, oh, the old days. Good riddance to those. Three cheers on the non-blocking AP! XD But anyway, the alt egg sprite fact is probably best left for when we're breeding alts into the spiral. Yours is a better idea!

Two-Headed Lineage

Sigh, of course this would happen: https://dragcave.net/lineage/Kiv6b :) (The good news being: It's the right species to continue the line! The bad news being: Yeah, it's from the secondary mate I said I would prefer not continuing the line with. XD)

 

REGARDLESS, forward we charge! I'll send Dracaena a PM in a moment. ^_^ Done!

 

If you have male Duotone caught on the 4th of August, 2013, please let us know in this thread, PM me, or get in touch with Dracaena in PM directly about offspring. (Dracaena can continue the line on her own, but some of the idea is to spread the love around a bit!)

Pygmy Lineage

Sethiss' starter pair hasn't popped out an egg yet on first attempted breeding.

Actually more than one:

 

https://dragcave.net/view/Wyvt0

 

What do I have to do ?

Welcome to the project - thanks for letting us know about your Duotones! ^_^ Would you be willing to rename either of those to something trivia-ish? Here's what we're trying to do with these spirals, taken from the first post:

Quote
  • CB dragons contributing to the lineage can come from any scroll, but should be caught on the date of the release.
    Sometimes this will be tricky to impossible, but we should pitch in an honest effort, and always prefer dates as close to the release as possible.
     
  • Except for the initial CBs (which will be called The Release History and Of Dragon Cave), dragons should be named with some piece of trivia relating to the release they represent.
    For example, you might name a pair something like Black Dragons Were x Amongst The First.
    However, since we're predominantly using pre-existing CB dragons in this project, this is not a hard rule (just a very nice to have). I don't want anyone feeling like they can only contribute their rare dragon if they rename it. In that case, it's entirely sufficient to name the offspring something trivia-like.

In this case, since we already have a willing Duotone candidate to fall back on, the renaming is a little less optional than the post talks about, but if you say "I won't rename - but I really, really want to be part of this project, please!", or anything along those lines, realistically speaking, knowing my track record at insisting on things, I'm probably going to give in. XD

 

The process works like this:

  • Dracaena is going to raise the bloodscale my dergs popped out.
  • Once it's grown, she can breed her release-date bloodscale to it.
  • Then she would contact you to get you the offspring, so you can continue the line with your release-date Duotone. ^_^

What do you say? Would you like to participate?

I have finally bred This egg!

@pinkgothic, is it @dustpuppy who is supposed to get it? We wanted to make sure!

Eep, eep, no, where did you get that name from? Did I screw up my notes? 😧 If so, I'm very sorry for the confusion.

 

It's @Dirtytabs who is currently closest to the release date with his female CB Green dragon. ^_^
