Anonymous said: Honestly, I would check to see if the people on your pinglist are still playing, just to make sure you aren't shouting into oblivion. Also, you are free to retire pairs whenever you want. You could ping the people and say, "hey, I'm retiring this pair too bad", but considering the lack of answers you've gotten so far... I don't think anyone will mind. =p
Thanks for reminding me to check if the people on the pinglist are actually still playing, that (for some reason) had not occurred to me. *headdesk* I just checked now, though, and the majority have well-fed dragons. :/
I just feel a little bad because on the thread I’ve said multiple times that “everyone who wants one will get a dragon”.
Although I guess ignoring two cute clutches of dragons could be interpreted as not wanting a dragon any more. *grumblegrumble*
Thanks for the advice, though, Anon! I appreciate it. :)
Pearlcatchers will occasionally make jewelry, such as necklaces or earrings, out of smaller pearls, formed on pebbles and other objects. They’re usually filled with happy memories or milestones, and one can usually see a pearlcatcher with “memory beads” occasionally touch them and softly smile, or giggle.
My knees hurt SO BAD from pushing past my disability limits this weekend to try and help unpack and moving things in the new house. To make me feel better, people should show me their disabled/injured/etc dragons! Please!!
Sudden realization that I don’t think I have any…
Missing left arm. (Being a total tundra brain with the traditional tundra memory, how this happened remains a mystery, although he does tend to freak out whenever he senses the smell of harpies.)
Excessive burn scarring. (An accident she got into while she was still young. She has to keep her hide well oiled, and flies in unusually tight spirals as she hates stretching the scars, but is otherwise doing fine.)
Blind. (Ever since birth. She’s often seen in a company of wolves, which the other dragons think helps her to get around.)
Born with weak wings, needs mechanical aid to get off ground. (It’s a shame, though, as he loves flying and racing, but has to do with the role of a spectator.)
Lost both legs, has prosthetics. (Her legs got mauled by a granite thresher shark in a hunting accident.)
Missing an eye (he’s an old battle veteran. Although, not sure if this counts as he’s a mirror dragon and thus still has three working eyes).
Lair also includes a mirror with skin condition (causes pigment loss, otherwise harmless), a mute tundra, and two dragons with elemental dissonance, where they feel they should be other element than they are, but not sure if “elementally disabled” counts here. Also other minor issues (considering the lair is littered with plague dragons, and couple of fighters that have gone through meat grinder so to say).
^^ I love all of Papermonkey’s dragons so much. (The little lady with burn scars is possibly my favourite of this selection, but the story that ties to the girl with prosthetic legs was so great as well …)
I don’t have many in my Lair.
Daell was blinded and very severely scarred. His father took out a lot of anger on him when he defied his wishes …
His scarring should be worse than it is currently, but I’m waiting to either make or buy an accent that will make him appropriately torn up.
Odin is missing an eye:
Einmyrir (Daell’s father, responsible for his condition) has very weak eyesight. He is probably also suffering from psychosis or (and?) has some other mental health issues.
Things I have learned doing this: I am really mean to my dragons’ eyes. :S I’d say the same think about Faes, but Odin is supposed to be a Snapper …
i think i’m just going to start breeding most of my pairs for exalt fodder because wow too much hassle trying to sell
I’ve just been considering this too…
The only pairs I breed are either (potentially) producing “dream dragons” (with the spares being exalted/given away) or producing exalt fodder.
I find pricing dragons really stressful, and actually trying to get people to buy them even more so. I don’t think I’ve ever sold an actual hatchling - it has always taken until they’re adults, and often I’ve had to re-list them on a second 7-day auction.
So my advice: dooooooo iiiiiiiiiiiit. Life is 1000% simpler. ^-^
Also, if you’re going to level&exalt, you can put the dragons you’re levelling on the AH for high-ish prices (to cover what you’d get from exalting, so I go for 10-20K usually) and you never know … I’ve sold a couple of L7-L10 dragons that way! :)
