Lineage Project Creation Guide

I have a question!

 

I am thinking of starting a lineage program of my own. I keep seeing people referring to "even generations," but I haven't been able to find a post that explains what that means. What does it mean? Are there "odd generations"?

 

ETA: Thank you for going to the work of writing and posting this guide, it's great information! biggrin.gif

Does the terminology's definition help?:

 

Even Gen Lineage

Even-Gen is when ALL possible slots within a dragon's lineage is filled. All generations of the egg or dragon are equal and even when you look at the lineage. There is no gap or blank spaces. The first founding dragons are always Cave Born.

 

Example of Even Gen Lineage :- http://dragcave.net/lineage/SJas

 

I guess anything else could be considered an "odd gen" (cute), but it's not a term that I've really heard used. ^^

aaaaaaah, I see! Thank you very much, and I'm sorry if I missed this answer when I made my post. That answers my question, and gives me ideas for how I want to set up my breeding project(s)! smile.gif

That's a good question and the answer is:

 

Either or both. It's your dragon so it's your choice! If the dragon is part of a project, and you're part of the project, then you should double check with the project guidelines for naming. Otherwise it's all your choice.

 

There are a couple threads you might be interested in Naming, after parents, Dragon Naming Suggestions, Dragon Naming Themes, Naming based on code, and Dragon Lineage Prefix Suffix registration.

 

I'd also like to point out that that's not an Earth dragon, that's a Terra. Earth dragons look like this. Have fun with your lineage

I might have a Dorkface from a broken lineage. I've been trying to find out more information about this one, it's an old one I've had since I signed up ..well..years ago. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

 

My Dorkface Male <-Is the one in question that I'm seeking more information about.

After looking at your dorkface, I can see that it is NOT from a broken lineage. Your white dragon is a descendant of Bai Jin Dorkface which is the 3rd child of Midas and Shallyna'ar.

 

If you want more info on the dorkface lineage, This topic is very useful. For help with lost or broken lineages this topic is very useful.

Thank you so much for this guide! I am brand-new to the site and I love having goals/plans to help keep myself motivated to give the project the proper attention.

 

This is really very helpful. biggrin.gif

Well, I've decided to take the plunge & try to trace my dragons' lineages... upshot is that I took a 1yr hiatus, so I apparently have a lot of CB & 2nd gens biggrin.gif

 

But I have a question how to number some of them... if one parent is a 1st gen/CB, other is 2nd gen - what is their offspring considered - 2nd or 3rd?

 

And before I start naming & hose myself - would someone who's been doing this (lineage) - breeding &/or tracking them - PM me to help me figure out? I had a Pern & Transformers thing going right out of the DC gate, but lost the names during the hiatus (I think Dorkface & Thewed (sp) were the only "lines" out at the time).

 

Apologies for the noob question, but I find the concept fascinating, though very confusing. I had previously bred just to try to get eggs to expand rare/unc options w/o inbreeding, and to share in the AP.

(I have looked at the forum thread w/ the worksheet of active lineages... none of my possible themes are listed happy.gif )

Thanks for posting this helpful guide. Just to let you know, some of the links are broken re: the listed example lineage projects.

 

I started my own lineage on July 4th and plan to call it the 'Red, White and Blue' lineage because I used the original red, white and the new royal blues to start it. The three foundation dragons were all bred on July 4th from CB parents.

 

I'm not sure if I'll share the lineage, but it's a project I've been thinking about for a while.

I think I've found and corrected all the broken links except for this one:

The Family Line Lineage Project is when a single person comes up with two dragons and breeds them to produce an egg. From this egg a lineage is born. Then the owner creates the lineage project and tells people to be able to join they must request an egg from the original dragon pair. Then when the eggs are given to others, the family line expands. The difference between this and the group lineage project is that every dragon can be traced back to the original pair. An example of this project would be the Forbidden Clan

 

The forbidden clan thread seems to no longer exist so if anyone has a lineage that they'd like me to use as the example for a family line please link it smile.gif Thank you.

Thanks smile.gif I'll add that as an example

 

If anyone else wants to add an example for consideration please do. I don't mind having more than one example for members to see.

Hello. I'm not new, but I am very new to the Breeding section (my original Scroll goal was a scroll of pure CBs) and I have an idea, but I don't know about how it would be accepted. The basic idea is that if you have a Dragon you use in a DC RP, you could breed them with other characters you've made and trade with other people you RP with. To sign up a dragon you'd need a brief history explaining them. Would this be a good project?

How would one go about getting permission to do a lineage project? I've been playing with the idea for some time now and I think I've got an idea of what I want to do.

Permission is kinda implicitly granted as long as your thread follows the guidelines and is not just a trading or gifting thread, for example.

I hope this is okay to post here! If not and there's somewhere better suited please do move this.

 

Here are all of the current adult sprites and a few clean lineage bases so that it's easier to make mock ups. It's nothing fancy, but it works.

Edit 12-3: Added the updated Silvers and Splits.

Edit 3-22: All missing holiday and new release sprites added. Added some extra spaces for future releases and updates.

Hello! I was reading this guide for Creating a Project and I had an idea. I wanted someone's opinion. So for a long time I have been giving my Dragons Medieval names, Its just one of my favorite things to do. Then i thought maybe i could breed a few of my dragons (I have decided which ones.) and Create a HUGE lineage with a ton of players. It wouldn't matter what dragon breed anyone used. Here is how it would start: I would breed my dragons and get two eggs. Then, I would create my thread, In hopes that someone would appear. I would ask them if they wanted to hatch the two eggs, Name them, and breed them. if they accepted, I would send them the eggs, they would do so, then hopefully, more people will slowly appear and we could start something.(This isn't all of my idea- just a small preview)

 

Can someone give me an opinion and some pointers? Thanks.
