[center][size=6][size=6]♠[color=purple]The Shadowspawn[/color]♠ [/size][/size] [center] The [b]Shadowspawn[/b] are a rare subspecies of dragon, due to the nature of their formation. These dragons are created from trails of goo left behind by the Shadowbinder's tears in areas of immense magical energy. This energy infuses into the dragon, and gives it shape and life, as it forms into a young hatchling, and continues to grow into an adult dragon as it absorbs more energy over time. Due to their formation's reliance on it, these dragons have a natural affinity for using and manipulating magic to their whims, making talented alchemists, mages, and healers. However, their body being made up of shadowsludge and not flesh makes it easy to heal, meaning they can also be quite useful as a niche form of warrior, designed to take and simply recover from hits, or messengers and scouts to more dangerous areas. As these dragons were not born from eggs, they do not reproduce with them either - instead, Shadowspawn dragons will combine a portion of the shadowsludge that comprises their body with some of their partner's, and imbue it with an immense amount of magic, forming a new youngling from this goo. Theoretically, this may allow a dragon to clone themself from a larger amount of their own goo, however this will take a lot out of them, quite literally, to make up the necessary amount, and they would still need the help of another dragon, as the magic of a single dragon is not enough to give life to the slurry without draining them entirely, giving their life as well. As all normal Shadowspawns have the same type of shadowsludge in their body, even artificial variants. However, due to Corpsebearer and Tangled Thorn variants being tainted with fauna and flora respectively, they don't have the same composition to their shadowsludge, and as a result can only reproduce with dragons within their same variant type and range. While taking form, these dragons replicate not only the body shape, but the dragon's biology as well - this means that often, habits and diets common to a dragon breed tend to be mimicked in Shadowspawn that take shape as that breed. This means Ridgeback-formed Shadowspawn may end up with an irrational dislike of water, though not in all cases, or an Imperial-formed Shadowspawn could eat all foods while a Shadeborn variant, having formed like a Nocturne, could only eat Meat and Insects. It's a little difficult to tell the difference between this subspecies and the dragons they mimic, but generally the dragons that see them will note something slightly off, though they may not be able to pinpoint what that thing is. Due to the majority of lairs having all or almost all species of dragons, it's very uncommon for dragons to discriminate against other dragons. However, if the dragon already has an inclination to, the Shadowspawn are more than likely to fall victim to it, due to that subtle difference.

Due to this, there are pieces of these entities within the dragon, and may influence their personality towards that of the species within them. Their appearance may also be influenced by the species within if it is a dragon, meaning artificially made dragons could be other breeds, or they could take the form of a dragon not native to their spawn-region.

These may have been carried to another domain by a dragon or the shadowy deity themself, and as such, may still form as other species. However, forming as a Nocturne is a much more common occurrence.

However, these exceptions should not go up on the auction house as the 'official' price, or be the common price. (i.e. if everyone who uses a hatchery gets a discount, the subspecies should not be included. However if it's just for associates, for example, it is then fine as it is not the common price.

Official breeders are welcome to use this thread to post their hatchlings in the same way I do, and can use appropriate pinglists - however, the post must not contain an actual 'buy now' button, as that would put this thread in Dragon Sales, not Dragon Share. You can post an image link to them though, even if on the auction house. There are a series of badges for official subspecies breeders - once added to the official breeder list, you will be sent the badge code for each variant you breed! These [b]do not[/b] have to be on the pair of dragons with the main badge, or anywhere for that matter, but they can be displayed anywhere, including in hatcheries and on the dragons, though they are intended for your signature.

In order to officially own one of these dragons, they must either be purchased with the official badge (I breed the subspecies), or requested in this thread to be made official, upon which I will PM you the code for the badge. The parents of this dragon do not also have to fit the criteria.

Breeding
Any two confirmed dragons may breed to produce offspring - if both parents have the badges, AND the dragons nested in a shadow nest, these are automatically confirmed, and can be sold with badge. This has one exception wherein any multiple-ranged variant can only officially produce with another variant in the same valid range, and they must be the same variant.

I love the idea! Do you plan to breed hatchlings for this subspecies? I would have a pinglist for updates, and a pinglist for sales so if you or someone else wants to breed them, interested people could be notified. Some larger subspecies also have a separate sales thread in Dragon Sales, though I don't think that's always necessary. Many subspecies also have a registry post in their main thread so anyone who owns one can get their dragon displayed there. Some also give you the ability to register breeding pairs, so breeders and their pairs who will always produce offspring who qualify for the subspecies can be displayed. If you develop more lore about the subspecies and maybe their particular behaviors or customs, or maybe how your own Shadowspawn came to be, it could help garner more interest and inspire others who are interested to write their own lore. Some subspecies also have a place to showcase lore others have written. Just some things I've seen from other subspecies that you could consider, you can do as much or as little of this as you want. [emoji=guardian happy size=1] If you do have a pinglist for updates or decide to have one for hatchlings, I'd love to be on both!

@KalicoKat
I already do breed hatchlings! There's a good chunk in my lair right now, though none are Nocturnes or Primals, so they're all regional variants. But all the pairs have capacity for Nocturne so it should happen soon!

I also included an official breeder ruleset, but a specific area for breeders is a great idea!

I'll try to develop more lore though too, and I'll split the pinglist now and add you to both! Thank you for the feedback!

@KalicoKat An update to the subspecies has been added! There is now a new variant to the subspecies, called the [b]Corpsebearer Variant[/b]! These dragons have a whole chunk of lore to them, and a different appearance that isn't just genes! [emoji=nocturne tongue size=2] Thank you to @MalaikaKupanda for the idea of having Shadowspawn that formed with an object within them! Your pretty baby should now qualify for this Variant, if you still want her to be! If it's alright and you want her to be still, I'd like to use her as an example for that variant, like how the others have one?

@Axyzel
I'd love for Matope to be registered (I'm on mobile right now otherwise I'd copy her image and link here) I should go looking for a mate for her so I can help with hatchlings?? I have never had a dragon that's a Subspecies before!

@MalaikaKupanda You don't need to be a breeder in order to have one, it's okay! But if you do, don't forget to tell me so I can make you official! I'll PM you the badge, and I'll link her on your behalf.

@KalicoKat An update to the page has been added! I created little support badges for anyone who likes the subspecies! [emoji=nocturne love size=2]

@Axyzel I like the Corpsebearer variant, and the updates look very nice! [emoji=guardian happy size=1] I'll have to look for some dragons who fit the color requirements for some of these once some space frees up in my lair!
