The Release History Of Dragon Cave Spiral

Recommended Posts

Can someone give me suggestions for name pairs for my Vine and the new White? :)

Hmm! Possibly something along these lines?

 

"Original Vines were a recoloured" x "Dragon Pod from Final Fantasy V"

"Whites' BSA Ward was added" x "on their 11th anniversary"

"A Vine's alt status used to" x "determine the colour of the egg"

"Vines' two elemental affinities" x "express their destructive nature"

Yeah, I didn't use Fertility since I don't have that many Purples and I breed before reading that it would lower the chance of rejection. 😧

Like I said, I forgot that it was a thing and that there was a way to possibly attempt to prevent it.

Thanks, I feel really sad that it happened. :(

Aah, I getcha! Thanks for letting me know - and don't worry about it! Mistakes happen and this one should be easy enough to fix. ❤️

You'd influence the White Dragon male, use Fertility on it or on your Vine, then breed them together until they pop out Vine offspring. Once you have that, you could try reaching out to @TempestSea and give them the offspring. ^_^

 

The White has grown up and I am ready to try breeding the pair in hopes of a Vine offspring. I have reached out to @TempestSea to make sure they are ready to receive any such offspring. Will keep you all posted!

Awesome, thanks very much for keeping us in the loop!

"The green Two-headed Lindwyrm" x "was designed as a spriter's alt", maybe? Though I guess that may be better-suited for the parents, even though there's no green variant two-headed lindwyrm there. XD

 

Or "Forest Two-headed Lindwyrms were" x "initially rarer than the Alpines" might be a nice one, given the Forest/Alpine dichotomy is right in your pair.

 

Or "Two-headed Lindwyrms first also" x "dropped in the Coast and Jungle".

 

What I tend to do to try and find names is trudge through the release thread (assuming it still exists - given the forum nuking from ages ago, early threads are effectively just lost, after all), and/or the species' wiki page (sometimes the page history, if I dimly recall there being some kind of trivia in the article in the past), and then just try and extract trivia from that. There's usually something of note (just think of the gazillion glitches that happened throughout Dragon Cave releases). ^_^

The unnamed parents are mine.  There is such a wealth of trivia with these dragons I'm not sure what is best to incorporate and wanted to leave things open to coordinate with the rest of the breed dragons. (actually I am brain dead :P)  I would like to see mention of the green originally intended as the spriter's alt with halloween submission.  I had forgotten about the forest ones being harder to catch initally.  For a visual clue, the banner for the release thread only shows the blue egg. https://forums.dragcave.net/topic/153111-2013-08-04-two-headed-madness/  There are so many goodies listed on the wiki page https://dragcave.fandom.com/wiki/Two-headed_Lindwyrm including the various spelling/sorting changes, the mention of multiple moons, the spriter commenting the description had changed without their knowledge.  *throws the ball out to see what happens*

Yup! I know. :) Sorry if it sounded otherwise. The point of their mention was to give Ruby a reason to consider instead letting you use the first set of suggested names. XD

The White and Vine produced a White egg. I think this is not useful for the Spiral, so I will abandon it unless someone has a different idea.

 

Will try for a Vine after the parents cool down.

If you still have it and don't want it, I like collecting the project rejects. :D Toss 'ere! (And thanks for the update!)

 

Edit: Got it! Thanks! ❤️

Hey guys, I'm not really following this thread closely, but.... I mentioned it to my daughter and she said she'd be happy to help out if she can, and if it isn't too complicated since she doesn't really play anymore.

She joined in 2008 and only collected CB, mostly ON the release date. Here is a link to her scroll if you want to take a look. Feel free to post here if you want her to breed anything to help out.

https://dragcave.net/user/replica

Thanks again for the nudge you gave us about this, @Tawanda001 - I've added three of replica's dragons to the main spiral cache for now. I think we'll be busy trying to knock dragons out of that cache backlog for a while, so I haven't yet scoured the scroll beyond it! I hope I'll remember to come back to it when we're getting into more recent years. ❤️ Really appreciate the help, in either case!

 

I've updated the first and second posts, making the following changes:

  • added some of replica's babs to the main spiral cache
  • added some of my CB metallics to the main spiral cache (mostly as solid fallbacks, the dates are unremarkable)
  • bumped the main spiral sprite section along, added Newfuzzi to the pair list
  • bumped the two-headed spiral sprite section along, added Ruby Eyes to the pair list

Here's a status update for those who don't check back to the first posts (e.g. 'cause they prefer notifications in their inbox ❤️) :

 

Main / Regular Release Lineage

 

Newfuzzi is trying to knock a vine out of Vines' Elemental Affinities x Express Their Destructive Nature. Meanwhile, if anyone has...

 

magi.png

 

...a male Magi older than 2008-08-13 and is willing to rename the bab for the project, give us a shout!

 

 

Two-Headed Release Lineage

 

Ruby Eyes is trying to knock a dragon out of (lq614) (CH4wk). Meanwhile, if anyone has...

 

two-headed_lindwurm_(alt)_f.png

 

...a female green/Forest Two-headed Lindwyrm caught on the 4th of August, 2013, would be willing to rename the dragon for the project, and really wants to be part of the spiral, give us a shout! (We've already got matching candidates, but we like spreading the love around.)

 

 

Pygmy Release Lineage

 

schenanigans is trying to knock another Nilia out of (mC1zL) x (Ipp9) for KenKazaki2, due to a refusal we've had. That said, Ken's Seawyrm is not a release date Seawyrm, so if anyone has...

 

seawyrm_f.png

 

...a female Seawyrm Pygmy caught on the 21st of May, 2011 and would be willing to rename the dragon for the project, please give us a shout! ❤️

For the Vine x Magi pair, I'm guessing? ❤️

Maybe something like "The original Magi sprite was" x "a recoloured E Dragon from BoF"?

Excellent. ^_^ (Same here!) When they're grown up, feel free to mention their codes here; I'll slap 'em into the cache!

Thanks so much for the update! ❤️

 

That said, forgive me a bout of paranoia prompted by the name - did you influence the lil' one male? 😅 It should be female to continue the spiral.

For my part, I didn't influence the egg either way--I didn't know it would matter! I also didn't bother with Fertility BSA this time around, so this was a natural breeding.

As does colour. It's not easy being blue when you should have been green. Anyone want this colourfail?

Fertility is really just important the first time you breed a pair, to prevent a refusal. ^_^

 

You hatched the egg on your scroll before you gave it to Tempest? :) In that case, I guess we'll just have to hope the vine genders right, and if it's a genderfail, re-breed. No biggie! Thanks for the heads-up.

Awwwwww. @pinkgothic, @TempestSea, I'll try for a re-breed in a week or so. Can anybody hook me up with a female Pink so I can Influence the new one? I don't have a female Pink, only a male.

I can breed and hatch one, will take some days though (the AP doesn't seem to offer one right now)

 

@TempestSea Are you short on female Pinks, too?
