Are Coatls able to fold their wings? I ask because in their art they don't seem to have a join that would let them do so like other breeds, so are their wings permanently in an open position or?

Sorry if this has been answered already but, we already know dragons can't survive (or at least can't be born) in areas without magic. But we also know neutral magic is a thing (thanks to battlestones like contuse, reflect, regeneration, ect.) so the question is, would it be possible for a dragon to survive/be born in an area with strong enough neutral magic, or does it absolutely have to be the elemental magic of the deities?

Who owns the deities' accounts? And why aren't they allowed to have friends? Don't you think they get lonely at times?

Hello
Do Nature and Plague have a tribal lifestyle?
If so what real-life counterparts would they have?
Also what cultures did you base each flight off of, if any?

Since Shadow is definitely one of the more abstracted elements in terms of physical attributes, I’m curious to know what the basic nature of Shadow magic is, especially after the Kindred Crossing story. Up until now, it seemed like Shadow magic in the FR world was equivalent to “illusion” magic. After Kindred Crossing, though, it seems like it has more to do with “void” magic. So what’s up with Shadow??

Typically they don't receive direct instructions, and will try and secure borders and expand territory, drive out Beastclans, and eradicate Shade remnants. Not all of this is done through fighting, as many dragons that are exalted up through the ranks of their flight will serve as hunters, messengers, craftsmen, architects, scientists, scholars, and healers.

There would be no market for it. It's possible that at some point in the past Beastclans may have collected found pearls as a beautiful gem; however, they have found that wearing or displaying such items tends to bring only trouble, invoking the ire of surrounding dragon clans, so it's not typically done.

Question:
In the last Q & A there were a mention of dragon storage instead of lairspace. Lots of players have voiced their opinion hete:
http://www1.flightrising.com/forums/sug/2373444

Could your lift the veil a little bit on plans for more space? There are many who would like some word on it :)
