INTRODUCTION
Nobody’s entirely sure what it is or where it came from. Theories vary, but most tales generally hold that the hivemind is old, very old - perhaps even older than dragonkind itself. It is a deadly, soul-sucking phenomenon that can steal away the very minds and bodies of dragons, reducing them into nothing more than drones, who work only to further the plans of their consciousness.

It behaves almost like a hive of insects. Most individuals are drones; dragonlike creatures with black chitin in place of scales, who move as though possessed. Drones are not sentient, they are not sapient, and they can barely be considered alive. They are disposable workers, who serve under the control of a rogue consciousness that treats them less like living beings and more like extensions of its own body. A consciousness is the brain, and its drones are the muscle, the sinew, the churning innards.

The presence of a consciousness is critical in supporting a hive. Drones are hollow-minded beings without any autonomy or individuality, and most are not programmed with a survival failsafe to remind them to eat and drink if the consciousness commanding them is disconnected. Though they come in many different shapes and sizes depending on what they were in their previous life, drones are rarely prone to doing anything other than what they are told, and those who break the mold are often considered defective and subsequently terminated.

Consciousnesses are sentient in the most alien of senses - they can use logic and reason, but think more like computers than flesh-and-blood beings, seeking only to survive and thrive in the most efficient way possible. They tend to work alone. They are capable of communicating to their drones and to other consciousnesses along wavelengths, psychic signals similar to radio signals that permeate the globe.

The threat of hives comes from the way they grow. Though drones can create more of themselves naturally by laying eggs, this process takes time, and is only advantageous for its production of pureborn drones. Instead, a much quicker process is that of assimilation. In assimilation, a dragon is forcefully transformed into a drone via a concoction called assimilation fluid that only the hive has been known to produce. Assimilation completely strips a dragon of their appearance, autonomy, and memories, leaving them an unrecognizable husk.

Hives do not care for the wellbeing of dragonkind, and view it as a race of farm animals at best. To them, dragons are only a means to an end, more fodder for their ever-growing forms. They steal dragons away from their homes to be assimilated or worse, they exploit everything they come across for the sake of their own benefit, and they destroy any who would pose a threat to them. The hivemind is clever, and it will not stop unless it is beaten back with force. If left unchallenged, it will swallow the whole of Sorneith.

Do not let it win. Do not give in. Do not assimilate.

And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

They never last long in a normal hive, as their bright white coloring makes them obvious targets.

White / Wasp
White / Bee
Any / Any

An extreme variation of the genetic norm, suffering an ailment identical to albinism. They never last long in a normal hive, as their bright white coloring makes them obvious targets. Many defective drones are also hatched without a connection to the hivemind, which makes them especially deadly, as they do not require that connection to stay alive. However, they are not hatched with their own individuality, and thus often live confused, broken lives.

Obsidian / Any
Obsidian / Any
Any / Any

Some people, often of darker intent, have attempted to replicate hives for their own purposes. The imperfect results of their experiments are psuedo-drones - creatures that are similar to true hives in brain, but lack the pure genetics of the body. Their minds are often close enough to a true drone's that they can be connected to real hives.

Must be child of a drone

Thanks in part to a number of horrific methods, it is possible for a drone to reproduce with normal dragons. Their offspring are widely varied, and may have any amount of a connection to the hivemind - ranging from completely connected to not at all - and many or none of the features of their drone parent. They all have free will, like dragons, as well as a personality. After the second generation, hive genes become entirely non-dominant, meaning that hive lineage only counts for the drone's direct descendants.

The results of an improper assimilation. They have begun to transform, but never had the chance to finish the process. Like drone descendants, they can have varying levels of connection to the hive.

X / Wasp

Any / Basic

A hive, when left to its own devices, may develop odd coloration. Some of them are of a variety known as Sentinels (created by V0iCEB0X), which are colored to blend in with their environment, and can stay statue-still for days at a time on the edges of a hive's territory, acting as scouts.

Like pure drones, strange drones can have mutated tertiaries as well, the effects of which are highly variable.

Obsidian / Wasp
Obsidian / Bee
Any / Ghost, Smirch, or Circuit

Hijackers are false consciousnesses created to obey orders and snare drones. They are hunted down aggressively by consciousnesses, as they can steal a hive's drones and repurpose them for their master's intentions. The manufacturing quality of a hijacker and how many drones it can control are not determined by any of its physical traits, but it's safe to presume that one with primal or faceted eyes is a force to be reckoned with.

Obsidian / Any
Obsidian / Any
Any / Ghost, Smirch, or Circuit

Like psuedo-drones, hijackers can go awry in the creation process. False hijackers, as these failed creatures are called, are often the result of a botched attempt at making a real hijacker. They can possess many or none of the capabilities of a true hijacker, and often act erratically due to conflicting code and misplaced loyalties.

Obsidian / Starmap
Obsidian / Bee
Any / Basic
OR
Obsidian / Wasp
Obsidian / Constellation
Any / Basic

Bizarre, god-created drones (as first discovered by V0iCEB0X). As the hivemind grew larger, even the gods learned of it, and many reacted accordingly. Divine drones are infiltrators, often with the singular purpose of rooting out hives and destroying them. A few, however, are seemingly independent, and may work for the hive rather than against it.

(Obsidian, Eldritch, or green-range preferred)

The results of assimilating a Gladebeast (made by Anukfilli). These behemoth drones resemble disgustingly powerful Wildclaws, and are far larger and more dangerous than their forest-dwelling cousins. A Gladebeast is a difficult target for any hive to assimilate, but if one manages to acquire and assimilate one... gods help you.

An assimilated Eboncrow or the descendant of one and a drone. They can be difficult to tell apart from their non-assimilated counterparts, as the Eboncrow's naturally dark coloration and weak fighting skill make them the easiest targets for assimilation. EXTENDED LORE.

Obsidian/Wasp
Obsidian/Blend
Any/Peacock

An assimilated Mothwing. These colorfully-patterned dragons make excellent candidates for assimilation, as their inclination towards insectoid behavior makes them less difficult for consciousnesses to control and command as part of a hive. Most Mothwings avoid the hive as best they can, but a few unlucky individuals still fall prey to their whims.



EYES
The ripples through Sorneith's magic have not left the drones untouched. Some of them have begun to develop strangely-formed eyes...
dragon?age=0&body=10&bodygene=20&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=3&gender=0&tert=147&tertgene=0&winggene=20&wings=10&auth=63e6cd135fabe1d171df49a5d9b1018c1ce973d2&dummyext=prev.png COMMON TO RARE
The most standard eyes, and quite ordinary to boot. They will not earn a second glance from either drone or consciousness. These drones are not at risk and possess no special properties.
dragon?age=0&body=10&bodygene=20&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=4&gender=0&tert=147&tertgene=0&winggene=20&wings=10&auth=1d4141c02606574b035b3a3aabd5b808e429ae56&dummyext=prev.png FACETED
These eyes are considered ideal. Some claim that these drones are the purest of their kind, converted back to their roots and freed of their dragonlike inhibitions. Drones with faceted eyes often have a stronger connection to the consciousness, and if they are a consciousness themselves, they tend to have heightened awareness and intelligence.
dragon?age=0&body=10&bodygene=20&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=5&gender=0&tert=147&tertgene=0&winggene=20&wings=10&auth=31724b55b5442e8dcc984029fd808b840954eb25&dummyext=prev.png MULTI-GAZE
These eyes are considered a bizarre mutation by most consciousnesses, an infringement somewhat akin to a tertiary gene. If the drone can see out of its eyes, the consciousness may assign them to guard duty or some other job wherein extra eyes are useful. If the eyes are benign, the drone is often killed or chased off, for fear that something else may be watching out of them...
dragon?age=0&body=10&bodygene=20&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=6&gender=0&tert=147&tertgene=0&winggene=20&wings=10&auth=25da238de18644d3cf860d76c85d5ebf75b4caf1&dummyext=prev.png PRIMAL
These eyes are worrisome. They are a sign that a drone has been corrupted by the outside world, that their elemental affiliations and dragon heritage are stronger than that of their hive's will. A drone with primal eyes is killed on the spot. A consciousness with primal eyes is worse, as its elemental influences and hive influences are at a perfect equilibrium, and are capable of weaponizing their element for faster expansion.

These eyes are an unknown factor. They aren't an immediate cause for concern. However, glowing eyes could be a sign that a drone is possessed by something, whether it be an elemental spirit, a god, a wizard or other spellcaster, or something more sinister.
dragon?age=0&body=10&bodygene=20&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=8&gender=0&tert=153&tertgene=0&winggene=20&wings=10&auth=1babe19be86b180fec523248abc2f8d991fb6fa3&dummyext=prev.png DARK SCLERA
These eyes are a coloration variant on the surface, but often bring with them an affinity for seeing in the dark and trouble in brightly lit spaces. They also signify a stronger hive influence, much in the same way that primal eyes signify elemental influence. Drones with dark sclera aren't as perfect as those with faceted, but they're pretty close.

A more recent development, goatlike eyes are typically harmless. In some cases, they are associated with a connection to the Beastclans, usually manifesting itself with herdlike behavior, an appetite for plants, and lowered intelligence. Their animalistic minds are easier for consciousnesses to command, but are unreceptive to more complex lines of code, making them good as little else than simple worker drones.

Swirling eyes are often found hand-in-hand with hypnodrones, a rare variety of the common drone with bright, hypnotizing patterns painted across their wings. Whereas the typical hypnodrone simply uses their wings, those with Swirl may also use their eyes, and typically to great effect. Some claim that their eyesight is poorer as a result.

AFFILIATES
Want to affiliate with the hivemind and create some cross-subspecies lore? Just ping me and ask!

AMALGAMATES
> DESIGNATION: HIGHLY DANGEROUS
> AVOID AT ALL COSTS
One of the few natural predators of drones. While not evolved for this purpose, they do the job quite well - by swallowing them whole, that is. Amalgamates are haunted by the minds of all the sentient creatures that they meet, meaning that drones are a perfect snack: they have a nutritious, dragonlike body and no pesky conscious hitchhikers. The connection runs deeper if an amalgamate gets a hold of a consciousness, whose mental broadcasts can be tweaked to lure in even more drones.

GLADEBEASTS
> DESIGNATION: MODERATELY DANGEROUS
> LARGE DRONES RECOMMENDED FOR EASE OF ASSIMILATION
The gigantic, feathery cousins of Wildclaws, Gladebeasts were created in response to the growing Emperor threat. Bigger, bulkier, and stronger than Wildclaws, they have a unique skull shape and a terrifying pension to destroy all who intrude upon their territory. They can grow to rival Guardians in size. This doesn't deter hives, though - no Gladebeast drones have been reported yet, but their usefulness may paint a target on their backs for prospecting hives...

GOETIA-BORN
> DESIGNATION: MODERATELY DANGEROUS, CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED
> INVEST IN GUARDS IF FOUND NEARBY
The Goetia-born are a strange race - dragons in form, but not in physiology, they come from a world other than Sorneith, made by a god who calls themselves an arbiter of justice. Goetia-born cannot be assimilated, and assimilation fluid only serves to make them ill. Although not originally a problem for the hivemind, a recent investment in their development by their deity has led to some individuals developing faceted, insect-like eyes and the ability to create small 'dead zones' where a consciousness's signal cannot transmit. These individuals are sent to the surface to wipe it clean of the hive's influence. Naturally, the hive despises these creatures, and will do whatever it can to ensure that they are annihilated.

PLUSHIES
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED
> IGNORE UNLESS PROBLEMATIC
Beings of cotton and wool, dead matter given life. These creatures are not made of organic flesh, but are cursed to walk the world of the living anyway, even as their seams tear and their fabric whittles away. Their sentient nature gives them the ability to prove a problem to hives, but as non-organic matter, they possess no value - caloric or otherwise - to drones and are thusly ignored.

SICKLY
> DESIGNATION: ASSIMILATE POORLY AND BEHAVE AS CONTAGION VECTORS TO HEALTHY TARGETS
> IGNORE UNLESS PROBLEMATIC
A sect of unlucky souls who were infected by exáplosi asthéneias, otherwise known as the shedding sickness. Symptoms include peeling skin, scabs, rapid weight loss, and the growth of sac-like structures filled with gastric acid, blood, and saliva, all of which carry the disease. Their poor immune systems make assimilation easy, but result in drones with similarly deplorable ills. The disease gives them some perks, such as super-strength and an affinity to dark magic, though these boons sadly do not carry over through the assimilation process and thus make them unfit to assimilate. The lack of meat on their bones makes them unworthy to even serve as a food source, and so they are, for the most part, left alone.

CRYOBORGS
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, HIGHER RISK OF POOR ASSIMILATION
> FUNCTIONAL BUT NOT IDEAL
A combination of cryonics, cybernetics, and magic gone wrong, cryoborgs are the preserved-turned-living dragons who attempted to freeze their bodies to stave off illness or death until a time came where science could cure their ailments. The magic that awakened them fused them with their frosty enclosures and the metal meant to protect them, turning them into half-flesh, half-metal things with a thin layer of permafrost coating their hide. Depending on how much of their bodies is organic, it is possible for them to be assimilated, but their weakness to heat and clunky metal parts may remain.

BILESNEAKS
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, BEHAVE AS CONTAGION VECTORS TO HEALTHY TARGETS
> POTENTIALLY THREATENING
The Bogsneak mutagen took a terrible turn when a Plague clan attempted to develop it into a fast-spreading virus. Though the results were perhaps not as contagious as originally intended, it was still viable: the infected transformed into Bogsneaks, and their saliva became a bright neon green that, when ingested, would spread the mutagen. Bilesneaks can pose a bit of an issue to hives, as their bile is potentially infectious and may have some unwanted effects on drones. If assimilated, their assimilation fluid may retain some of these odd, transformative properties. It probably won't be long until a hive figures out a way to twist this to their advantage...

EFFLUVIAL CROWS
> DESIGNATION: MODERATELY DANGEROUS
> LARGE DRONES RECOMMENDED FOR EASE OF ASSIMILATION
A unique sect of Wildclaw-esque creatures originating from the Plaguelands, Crows come in many different colors and types, though the most common of them are experienced combatants with a militarized culture and highly-infectious talons. They are difficult for hives to take down on account of their fighting skill, though, like Gladebeasts, capture and assimilation is far from impossible. An assimilated Crow would boast a variety of abilities depending on what type of Crow it was, but regardless, it would almost certainly become a dangerously effective member of the hive.

CRYSTAL BOTTLES
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, MAY HAVE BENEFICIAL TRAITS AS DRONES
> USEFUL
Alchemically altered Faes who resemble crystalline potion-bottles, these small dragons bear large, capsule-like organs that enable them to store various liquids within themselves. As organic creatures, they can be assimilated, and their capsule often remains with them even as drones. This makes them easy catches for those looking for assimilator or archer drones.

MOTHWINGS
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, MAY HAVE BENEFICIAL TRAITS AS DRONES
> USEFUL
A strange mutated strain of dragonkind with a predisposition towards insect-like behavior and colony living, Mothwings may find themselves at odds with the hive, who finds their behavioral quirks useful for drone unity and hive maintenance. Although their numbers are not widespread enough to paint a huge target on their backs, some hives have discovered their usefulness. It won't be long before word spreads.

NON-SUBSPECIES AFFILIATES
For affiliates that are groups of subspecies or something similar, but not new lore in their own right.

THE CRYPTID SOCIETY OF SORNEITH
A group for people who like cryptids and similar creatures. Dragons that are bizarre, mysterious, or just downright creepy gather here.

AMALGAMATES
> DESIGNATION: HIGHLY DANGEROUS
> AVOID AT ALL COSTS
One of the few natural predators of drones. While not evolved for this purpose, they do the job quite well - by swallowing them whole, that is. Amalgamates are haunted by the minds of all the sentient creatures that they meet, meaning that drones are a perfect snack: they have a nutritious, dragonlike body and no pesky conscious hitchhikers. The connection runs deeper if an amalgamate gets a hold of a consciousness, whose mental broadcasts can be tweaked to lure in even more drones.

GLADEBEASTS
> DESIGNATION: MODERATELY DANGEROUS
> LARGE DRONES RECOMMENDED FOR EASE OF ASSIMILATION
The gigantic, feathery cousins of Wildclaws, Gladebeasts were created in response to the growing Emperor threat. Bigger, bulkier, and stronger than Wildclaws, they have a unique skull shape and a terrifying pension to destroy all who intrude upon their territory. They can grow to rival Guardians in size. This doesn't deter hives, though - no Gladebeast drones have been reported yet, but their usefulness may paint a target on their backs for prospecting hives...

GOETIA-BORN
> DESIGNATION: MODERATELY DANGEROUS, CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED
> INVEST IN GUARDS IF FOUND NEARBY
The Goetia-born are a strange race - dragons in form, but not in physiology, they come from a world other than Sorneith, made by a god who calls themselves an arbiter of justice. Goetia-born cannot be assimilated, and assimilation fluid only serves to make them ill. Although not originally a problem for the hivemind, a recent investment in their development by their deity has led to some individuals developing faceted, insect-like eyes and the ability to create small 'dead zones' where a consciousness's signal cannot transmit. These individuals are sent to the surface to wipe it clean of the hive's influence. Naturally, the hive despises these creatures, and will do whatever it can to ensure that they are annihilated.

PLUSHIES
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED
> IGNORE UNLESS PROBLEMATIC
Beings of cotton and wool, dead matter given life. These creatures are not made of organic flesh, but are cursed to walk the world of the living anyway, even as their seams tear and their fabric whittles away. Their sentient nature gives them the ability to prove a problem to hives, but as non-organic matter, they possess no value - caloric or otherwise - to drones and are thusly ignored.

SICKLY
> DESIGNATION: ASSIMILATE POORLY AND BEHAVE AS CONTAGION VECTORS TO HEALTHY TARGETS
> IGNORE UNLESS PROBLEMATIC
A sect of unlucky souls who were infected by exáplosi asthéneias, otherwise known as the shedding sickness. Symptoms include peeling skin, scabs, rapid weight loss, and the growth of sac-like structures filled with gastric acid, blood, and saliva, all of which carry the disease. Their poor immune systems make assimilation easy, but result in drones with similarly deplorable ills. The disease gives them some perks, such as super-strength and an affinity to dark magic, though these boons sadly do not carry over through the assimilation process and thus make them unfit to assimilate. The lack of meat on their bones makes them unworthy to even serve as a food source, and so they are, for the most part, left alone.

CRYOBORGS
> DESIGNATION: AVERAGE, HIGHER RISK OF POOR ASSIMILATION
> FUNCTIONAL BUT NOT IDEAL
A combination of cryonics, cybernetics, and magic gone wrong, cryoborgs are the preserved-turned-living dragons who attempted to freeze their bodies to stave off illness or death until a time came where science could cure their ailments. The magic that awakened them fused them with their frosty enclosures and the metal meant to protect them, turning them into half-flesh, half-metal things with a thin layer of permafrost coating their hide. Depending on how much of their bodies is organic, it is possible for them to be assimilated, but their weakness to heat and clunky metal parts may remain.

And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
