hey y'all. new year, same old me- which can only mean one thing. Wild Speculation™.

i’m sure some older users may recognize the above screencap- this was from an art stream by undel prior to November 16th, 2013. the cape apparel shown above was released on Nov. 17th, so the stream above had to have occurred at an earlier time (though the exact date is unknown).

it shows the capes previewed on all the now known dragon breeds- at the time, coatls, nocturnes, and bogsneaks were still unreleased (hence the ‘nopes’ over their boxes). this shows that even as early on as this in FR’s history, multiple new breeds were being developed waaaay prior to their official site debut. bogs weren’t released until September 19th, 2016. this means they were still in development, even after both of the adult poses were completed as seen above, for around 3 years. (2 years, 10 months, & 3 days to be exact!)


but, you say, why does this matter? that screencap is old as hell and all the breeds in it are already released, so who cares? its not like any more new breeds are gonna get made at this point, FR staff obviously has too much on their plate for all that work.


well, i say, you’re wrong, hypothetical opposition for the sake of my argument! wrong!!

lets take a closer look at the cape screencap, hm? that bottom right corner... that ‘so much nope’...... suspicious, is it not? if bogs were the only breed they were hiding down there, why the black boxes and text placement like that? its almost as if..... there’s been even more unreleased breeds in development all this time...!

by overlaying images of the appropriate size, and accounting for image cutoff, we can see that the zone of ‘so much nope’ is exactly sized to be covering 4 new dragon poses. that’s 2 possible new breeds that have yet to be seen!


ok, but...! you say again, argumentative as ever, how do you know that there are 4 whole poses hidden down there, rather than just 2? the ‘nope’ zone words only cover enough space for 2 of the images!


well...! i say, that would be a valid point if the cape apparel was the only piece of evidence available- which it is not! please consider the following screencap, from a different undel art stream that occurred prior to October 2nd, 2013 (as the silk tunics were released on Oct. 3rd).

calling it now- 2019 will be the year of a new breed! mark my words!!

I mean, the staff have said before that they do have new breeds in development. They used to say they wanted it to eventually be 2 a year, but they may now believe differently. Either way, this is the longest we've gone without a breed, so I'm almost certain there will be one this year!

Imagine how rad it would be to get two at once... highly unlikely, but just imagine it...

If we got a new breed absolutely everyone would go ballistic either way, this year or another. I'll just sit in the back and eat popcorn, watching the drama unfold with interest.

I love pings! Don't be afraid to ping me; I tend to miss a lot of replies, even if they're right after my own post, so please, please ping if you want me to see!

If you look at the Employment Opportunities link at the footer of the site, you’ll see that two artists were recently hired for “creating illustrations that expand our existing apparel items to cover new dragon illustrations.” So yeah, they’re definitely working on new breeds. Hoping the next one comes out this year!
