Sorry it's so late. Lore is very very hard, ahaha. Before that, though, Pwyll and Rhiannon are now fully gened! @Alize generously gave me Rhi's Firefly, and I broke down and bought a wc scroll from the AH. That means they're finished enough to be able to breed on the 15th! Lore concepts aren't.... [i]entirely[/i] fleshed out, but I have what, 9-10 days to get it nailed down and write it before the equinox? Plenty of time on that front, ahaha. My current idea (for all of the Monarchs, really) is that they're from an Elsewhere-type plane of existence - where reality isn't as reliable and you can cross from one end of Sorienth to another in no time but also take years to get back to a place close to where you first entered. Basic faerie stuff, really. One specific thing to note is the deities' interaction with this plane. Because of it's non-linear-ness, different deities' magic can mix in odd ways. The origins of the monarchs - or one speculated origin, at least - would be that they were abandoned eggs that made their way into elsewhere and were influenced by its odd magic upon hatching. The spring monarchs would have been influenced by the Windsinger and the Gladekeeper, of course. Given the unique nature of elsewhere, though, they would grow to become more than just an unusual combination of magic, and gained a lot of influence in elsewhere and beyond. Again, more typical faerie stuff, but it's influenced by site lore. I still need to smooth over details with origins, figure out their dispositions, and figure out rules to the generations project that they'll be a part of, but I think I'll hold off on that for at least 8 hours. It's getting late, and I need sleep, haha. Any input on any of the things I have or haven't talked about would be greatly appreciated! We're [i]so close[/i] to the equinox, and I'm both excited and a little scared, haha!

It's been a really fun project to follow along with and you've made amazing progress so far and even just sticking to the deadlines is no small feat. Love the idea of the fae-influence that's also tied in with FR lore though, the way you describe it almost makes me think of the deities' influence in the 'other place' being like bubbles, where the magic makes it denser, even stickier in terms of time and movement if you run into them and the longer you stay in the proximity of a bubble, the more it manifests.

@shirotsubaki6564

Thank you so much! It means a lot.

@Xirei

Thank you for supporting too! And that conceptualization is really good. It makes it sound like the "bubbles" could be a crossover point between sorienth and elsewhere, if the deities' influence is strong enough. Your specific choice of words also makes it sound like the areas of influence move around. If the bubbles were to inhabit the same area as one of the courts, then, any unhatched descendants of the monarchs could be influenced by said magic, meaning any eye color dragons is okay! Heck yeah, lore reasons for something I already wanted to do for the generations project!

(And for those of you who are interested in getting involved in the legacy project, I'll be charging 100kT/100g for adopting direct offspring of the monarchs, so that's how much this first hatchling will be.)

Pwyll & Rhiannon: Nesting (1 egg)

Ladies and gentledrakes...... we got wegged.

Our Spring Monarchs, Pwyll and Rhiannon, were sent to nest on a wind nest, as I would like to make their very first nest match at least one of their eyes, even if I won't be requiring specific eye colors for the legacy project, just to set aside this as a special moment. The nester, @MamaVori, was so kind to take them early, to ensure that even if they did miss a day incubating them, the pair would still be able to hatch on the equinox.

And I get repaid with one. Single. Egg.

I've never been more insulted in my life.

They put all their effort into one egg, lets hope this one egg is totally worth it!
