    So where the heck do you even grind this holiday? \:

    You don’t. You sit in a corner, crying over the drop rate of sprockets. Your dragons are starving because you’ve wasted digging turns on nothing but shale. The Stormcatcher appears into your room. “Get back to work” he whispers in your ear. You can only cry.

    I am figuring this out.

    You know what I want?

    A companion piece to flowerfalls.  Leafshowers.

    Obviously, as a real item they’d be more leafy and not just flowerfall recolors.  Maybe even in cool shapes, like ginkgo leaves.

    FR, PLEASE.

    /flails uselessly

    WOW YES, WE NEED THIS. ♥

    DO WANT.

    I’ve wanted this since they released the flowerfalls!

    Also actual water-droplet showers would be cool. (Or at least a blue flowerfall to simulate it.) I have a spiral and a ridgeback who need something like that.

    Not as many to start off with as my last giveaway,but I was a bit strapped on time for this. The coli has been unkind when it came to drops,so I had to skip out on getting the items for myself cause I wont be able to make it back in time -_-

    Regardless,I promised to make these giveaways for every holiday!

    One person will win 270 (not final number) charged sprockets! This number will go up as I plan on grinding more.

    -You do not have to be following me.

    -Only REBLOGS will count this time around! Forgot to add that you must add your ID and/or username!

    -Entries must be submitted before Friday,August 1st. I’m tentatively putting the end time at 12:00 FR time

    Good luck!

    When it comes to exalting, the only thing I really want is shrines. 

    Like. You can peruse your hall of exalted dragons—all the dragons you’ve ever personally exalted—and pay gems to build an altar to one. You’d have an Ancestral Hall page (or something) with these altars, and you could decorate them with materials and stuff. 

    Once a day, you could go to your hall and pray for your ancestors’ blessings. It’d be randomized what happened—you might get a line of text under each ancestor’s altar saying what they’re up to today (“so-and-so is helping the Arcanist research falling stars” “such-and-such is helping the Lightweaver notate texts on the Shade” “so-and-so is helping the Gladekeeper grow mighty oaks to protect her domain”). Maybe even a message directly from your deity thanking you for your service. No tangible benefit, but fun content stuff! 

    And then sometimes they’d bless you with fertility (reduced odds of one-egg nests), or fortune (random events where you find things happen if you click around the site), or strength (boosted stats in the coli).

    Those would be rare—usually you’d just get cute flavor text—but even so, I think it’d make exaltation really fun. It’d encourage people to exalt to their own deities, which might get more free-for-all dom pushes going.

    You’d have to pay to build the altars, though! It wouldn’t make sense otherwise—and dom pushers would get enormous ancestral halls full of dragons they don’t care about. 

    But yeah. Exaltation prices are all well and good, but I’d exalt dragons for nothing if they had a system like this in place. Even if the only benefit was the flavor text and cute shrines.

    I would love this.

    To start with it would just be a place where you can view all the dragons you have personally exalted (as a list of links), and then you had to pay to create the shrines to specific dragons.

    I wouldn’t want to get rid of the existing bonuses (I make a large chunk of my treasure through exalting) but this would be a delightful addition, and I think it would also dispel some of the exalting = death idea.

    I am now not only buying accents for dragons I don’t even own yet, but also dragons I might never own.

    Welcome to the club

    Heh, thanks, it’s good to know I’m not alone!

    I have always grabbed all the Festival skins/accents I like (in a ‘these might come in later but will be hideously expensive then, so best get them now’ sort of mindset) but this is the first time I’ve done it with user-produced accents. >.<

    So… what’s the best way/source to work out a dragon’s size relative to others of his kind? 

    Here is a database.

    Here is a sizing thingy.(let me know if you need assistance)

    Thank you! Used the database and messed around with some online calculators to figure out percentiles and then get similar-percentile human-numbers. :) That should work!

    Those links will be useful later, I’m sure. :)

…and Cecil is done. ♥  Part of me worries the golem glove makes things slightly too cluttered, but I actually have character(!) reasons for it.  And it’s pretty awesome as an item anyway.  So.
Anyway, for the people who like to read that sort of thing:

Water dragons are known for predicting the futures that may come to pass… and not telling anyone else what they are. No one said they weren’t allowed to pick one and aim in that direction, though! Whoever said water and electricity don’t mix… was probably giving you good advice, actually, but most of the time Cecil makes it work. In fact, his experiments have a slightly better rate of success than one would expect by chance — it’s possible he’s worked out a way to use his native oracular talents to narrow down which paths might work. Most dragons are shocked the first time they see him with his goggles off and discover his eyes are a much deeper shade of blue than they’d expected. Although much brighter (and chattier) than the usual stereotype of Tundras, there’s not much that can be done about the memory. For most of his life, Cecil’s depended on his sprite familiar to serve as a sort of personal assistant, reminding him about all the details that slip his mind. The sprite’s been serving double-duty, tending to little Woad as well since she was born, so they’ve been working on an alternative way to handle the issue. The solution was to develop a robot sprite to fill in as backup-memory, freeing up a lot of the real sprite’s time.

(…and for the record, I don’t know about anyone else’s, but his Livewire Grizzly has not been cruelly experimented on or forced into anything.  That species of bear naturally generates electricity (giving off bursts to defend itself from rivals, or electrifying water to kill fish to eat), and the rig has been carefully developed to help him control and direct it safely while in the lair.)

This guy has a ton of personality, he&#8217;s great! I love his description, too - and the idea of his sprite (and then his golem) filling in as &#8216;backup memory&#8217;: perfect!
