TJ's dragons have grown up, so it's time to decide if they are elemental. :

 

Nhiostrife wyverns are one of the few known breeds of wyvern with more than one set of wings. Because of their four wings, Nhiostrifes are very nimble in the air and have complete control their own movements with ease. When it’s mating season, males put up a very beautiful and unique air dance in an attempt to charm a female. The amount of stripes on their wings vary, with more stripes being more attractive, although most have only two to four. Their general attitude is very passive and curious—they only fight if they themselves or their family are in danger.

 

The description isn't entirely clear about whether they spend the majority of their time in the air but they do seem like masters of flight. So, the description of Wind dragons is:

 

WIND - Dragons comprised of gas or with a strong connection to weather or the cosmos. POSSIBLY those that spend a majority of their time in the air. For example, grey dragons land only to rest and eat AND they have control of the weather. Thunder dragons land only to sleep and breed. They get moisture from the clouds and control the weather.

 

Do we think they qualify?

Hmmm...still thinking.

 

The description of the Nhiostrife wyverns doesn't exactly scream "Elemental" to me, since it's more focused on their their mating dance and how many stripes they have to attract the opposite sex.

 

BUT they do seem to have an unusual control of flight...but is that physical control elemental?

 

They don't seem to:

- be comprised of gas

- have a strong connection to weather

- be connected to the cosmos

 

Perhaps they spend the majority of their time in the air? Don't know. The description doesn't say.

 

I'm abstaining for now.

I vote yes. I somehow feel there's a kind of similarity with Skywings with these guys. Agility and completely at home in the sky. Plus fancy aerial displays as a part of their lifestyle as a species.

The description doesn't say anything about spending the majority of their time in the air, and they don't fit any of the other Wind criteria. Voting NO for now.

 

By the way, it's December already - are we doing 5ecret Santa? (If there is interest in doing it and the usual suspects are too busy to run it, I'd be happy to.)

I'm on the fence for now - if we could get some extra info from the creator/artist (omg baby brain can't even remember the word for this) that would be great.

3, maybe 4 male silver cb tinsels are still active. That is... discouraging, but better than male gold tinsels. There is currently only 1 active known male gold cb tinsel. He is Apollo.

After reading the additional information, I'm going to vote NO on the twisters.

 

Very pretty sprites, though.

Voting yes on Nhiostrifes. Skywings are in, these are kinda like 'em in the whole exceedingly aerial, superb fliers, and winged courtship mating dances, and a nickname for 'em is apparently "Twisters". So much wings.

 

Also voting yes on Secret Santa! That sounds fuuun.

Nhiostrifes are a difficult decision. They do remind me a lot of Skywings, but the Skywings have "spend most of their lives in the air" very specifically in their descriptions, and the Nhiostrifes don't really...

So I'm voting NO on Nhiostrifes. sad.gif

 

I'd be up for a 5ecret 5anta, if the gifting period is not limited to the Christmas week - I probably won't have much online time over Christmas. xd.png
