Clan of the Phoenix
An old clan fights from the brink



With the appearance of the Gaolers, a long-slumbering sickness of the once-sealed cavern systems near the homelands of a once-flourishing clan of Ice awoke, quickly overtaking them. Weary and broken, all that remained of their kin were two Guardian dragons and a Mirror.

This is how they lived.

Ruleset



I decided to start a thread for my new Pinkerlocke! The ruleset I am using is primarily derived from here, itself a modified version of the Standard Ruleset. As I have made some small modifications, I will be posting them below.

Quote:
General Rules
  • Dragons taking part are located in the Pinkerlocke Tab of my lair.
  • If a dragon faints in the coliseum, they are considered dead and must be removed from the challenge. Such dragons will typically be exalted, though they may be moved into the main lair.
  • If a dragon reaches level 25, they will remain in the challenge but "retire", and are exempt from all coliseum battles.
  • Apparel and familiars gained from coli fights within the challenge will be given to dragons on the team fighting at the time.
  • What I do everyday is determined by what Pinkerton gives me that day.
  • All randomized decisions will be made using random.org.

Pinkerton Pulls

Food: Coliseum

Randomly choose three dragons (less if three can't fight) to fight in the coliseum. The venue they are to fight in will be at the level or one level range below the highest level dragon on the team. They remain in this venue the whole time, even if a dragon levels up. Using potions, fleeing, and returning to the main menu between battles are allowed. Reloading the coliseum to escape a losing battle is not allowed. How many battles must be fought is determined by the type of food pulled.

Plants: 10 battles
Insects: 20 battles
Seafood: 30 battles
Meat: 40 battles



Materials: Lore

Note that there is currently a glitch in which Pinkerton mislabels materials as trinkets. If you obtain a "trinket" from Pinkerton, double check to make sure its not actually a material!

Do some writing for your Pinkerlocke. How does your new clan change and develop? What are your dragons like personality-wise? How do they get along? How do they die? Is there an antagonist in this Pinkerlocke, or are they merely struggling against the forces of nature? Write dragon bios! Make a blog, or a thread for your challenge in the Quests and Challenges forums! Write short stories or paragraphs, or add to one big one adventure!

Personally, I enjoy writing something for each day, so I take this day to focus on a dragon's individual story or to write about events that happened outside of a day's focus, such as a nest hatching.


Trinket: Art or Roll

Make art of the Pinkerlocke. Dragons, events, familiars, anything.
If art is not made, roll: 1 = Food day, 2 = Battle item day.

If food day, roll for food type:
  1. Plants
  2. Insects
  3. Seafood
  4. Meat


Familiars: New dragons

Buy an adult dragon off the AH. The element of the dragon (and optionally, the breed) are chosen by RNG. I personally like to randomize the element and three different breeds to choose from. The dragon may cost up to 15kT. Within these restrictions, any dragon may be purchased. The purchased dragon receives the familiar.

The following results correspond to the following breeds:
  1. Banescale
  2. Bogsneak
  3. Coatl
  4. Fae
  5. Gaoler
  6. Guardian
  7. Imperial
  8. Mirror
  9. Nocturne
  10. Pearlcatcher
  11. Ridgeback
  12. Skydancer
  13. Snapper
  14. Spiral
  15. Tundra
  16. Wildclaw

The following results correspond to the following elements:
  1. Earth
  2. Fire
  3. Wind
  4. Water
  5. Lightning
  6. Ice
  7. Light
  8. Shadow
  9. Nature
  10. Plague
  11. Arcane


Apparel: Breeding

Breed two of your dragons. The dragons you pick are up to you. You can also change one of the genes on a dragon, or use a scatterscroll if you are rich and crazy. One of the parents will be given the apparel piece.

You must flip a coin for each hatchling once they hatch. If tails, the dragon is considered dead and you must exalt it or otherwise remove it from the challenge. Hatchlings with double or triple colors, Faceted, Multi-Gaze, Goat, or Primal are exempt from the coin flip and you may choose what to do with them.

If this can't be done, purchase a hatchling from the AH using the familiar rules. This hatchling will be adopted by two adult dragons in the challenge, one of which is given the apparel piece.


Battle Item: Uh-oh

Flip a coin.
Heads = DEATH STREAK
Tails = Nothing happens

DEATH STREAK rules: Randomly select three dragons to enter the coliseum. Venue level is the same as the highest level dragon on the team. They must fight 10 battles. Using potions is allowed. Fleeing and returning to the main menu are not allowed. If a dragon dies in a death streak, once the battle they died in is complete, even if it wasn't the 10th battle, the death streak is over.

Quote:
Additional Rules
Leader of Our Clan: The current leader of the clan wears a Brutal Headdress. If the leader dies, the current heir takes their place, at which time a new heir is chosen at random.

Heir Apparent: The current heir wears an Ethereal Flame Headpiece. The heir is exempt from all coliseum battles, in order to ensure survival of the clan. If the leader dies, the heir becomes the clan leader and is no longer exempt. The new heir is then exempt.

Puff the Magic Dragons: All dragons in the challenge will have elemental magic at their disposal, in accordance to this thread on magical lore. The exact powers a dragon has are determined by eye type, as dictated in the thread.

For unspecified eye types:
  • Goat: Two random powers, excluding Primal powers.
  • Glowing: Two random powers, excluding Primal powers.
  • Swirl: One random power, excluding Primal, Multi-Gaze, and Faceted powers.
  • Dark Sclera: One random power of the opposite element (see list below), excluding Primal powers.
  • Gems/Mage status not specified may be chosen at your discretion.

Opposing Types, for Dark Sclera:
  • Wind :: Earth
  • Fire :: Ice
  • Nature :: Plague
  • Light :: Shadow
  • Water :: Lightning
  • Arcane :: A random element, excluding Arcane

Banker's Choice: Days may be "banked", and the item written for later. Items may also be skipped until the Pinkerlocke is being written for again. Its really up to you. But don't worry if you miss a day or 2 or 10. This should be fun, so its okay to miss days.

I Don't Wanna Grow Up:
Hatchlings age on a scale determined by their breed's breeding cooldown. This scale has 5 stages as noted by their human equivalents:
  1. Toddler
  2. Young child
  3. Young teenager
  4. Young adult
  5. Adult
Plentiful breeds reach the next stage every 3 days while rare breeds each the next stage every 7 days (breed rarities can be found here). Until they reach the adult stage on the scale, they are still considered hatchlings.
Quote:
Starting Out

Using the method I detailed in the "familiar" possibility above, obtain a small number of dragons (suggested 2-3). If they already have names, keep the name! If not, name them whatever you like. The challenge starts once all of the dragons, if they are hatchlings, grow into adulthood.

Losing:
If your dragon count falls to zero you have a few options
  1. Declare the challenge a "loss" and give up
  2. Wait for Pinkerton to drop a familiar
  3. If all dragons except the heir die, continue on with 2-3 new dragons from the AH, all purchased under 15kT. Such circumstances may be used as a chance for a break.

Interaction between Pinkerlocke clans in encouraged! Add to your lore, make allied clans, and maybe even send a surviving hatchling from a nest!

Advice
From the original Pinkerlocke:
  • Stock up on potions. Seriously.
  • Using only one dragon in the coliseum is HARD. Don't be shy about running away!

My advice:
  • Online counters (like this one) are excellent for tracking battle streaks.
  • Remember to raise your stats and stones when you can upon leveling up.
  • Consider having a mage with contuse your team, and make sure to put stat points into Vitality. This is not a grinding team build we're after.
  • When you get further in, it's a good idea to have Guard on some of your higher leveled dragons! New dragons coming in will be level one, but will still be required to go to higher venues.

Most of his body tingled lightly- he was sleeping, but could not entirely forego the cold around him. But the crying grew closer. He tapped against the shell of his egg. [i]'I want to find them.

A shivering wind bit his once-shielded hide, causing him to fluff up his feathered mane against the cold. He dragged his claw downward, widening the opening, and pulling shards of shell through. Once the hole was large enough for a head, he rolled onto his back and kicked, shattering the side of his egg. Crawling out, he blinked against the brightness of the icy snow that reflected the moon's glowing light. [i]'Where are you?

"Keep your voice low, Loretta" "...But why at night?" Prism looked across the Hollow at each dragon in turn, checking that they remained undisturbed in their slumber. "Powers such as ours can be.. offputting, to those without them. They deem them an invasion upon their privacy." "But I can talk to them so much better when I can see what they meant!" "Shhh. Yes, I know, hatchling." Prism paused again, closing most of his eyes to focus in on his thoughts for a moment. "We can practice honing your powers at night, extending their reach and ability, with the hatchlings within their eggs. They have no secrets yet to themselves that we may be intruding upon. But in your waking hours, it shall be necessary to display restraint. Though we may feel differently, we must respect the wishes of our family and others best we can." The small Nocturne hesitated, but nodded, seeming to trust his words. "D'ya think I could talk to more people besides Props through my magic?" "Only time will tell. There are others that have magics similar to yourself- myself and Naal included- but yours is particular in that it interacts with a dragon, and at any given moment. For now, Prosperity and yourself can communicate by reading the emotions of one another, where you both possess an ability to read the feelings of others. But only those with that type of power can speak in this way. I believe you may be able to strengthen your magic, such that you can not only read emotions, but exert them.

Maybe Momma and Rinny can help me with attacks too, then?" Naal snorted, Vincente carefully avoiding eye contact. Ah. That was the name he called Riln in private. She was listening in on them. That would be a discussion for later. Beyond the next patch of brush was a ledge, maybe a length or two of a drop. And below, a phytocat had already spotted them.

Naal ran for his sister. Everything seemed to slow down. The phytocat went down at some point. There was blood everywhere. He had to get that plant. He took a flying leap into the tree, scrabbling through the branches after it as it tried to dart out of his reach. But Fire doesn't need touch.

Vincente shook himself out of his stupor, leaping out of the tree and back to the young dragon. Naal had several empty vials scattered around him, his claws working frantically to apply pressure to the rather large wound on his sister's abdominal. Vincente turned quickly to the bags, grabbing several binds of gauze and passing them off to Naal. She was breathing, but it was faint. "Is she stable?" "Yes, but she needs help, Prism has the supplies back at the Hollow-" "Leave her to me." Naal spun to stare at him, questioning confusion and desperation both written on his face. "I flew from dawn to dusk every last day of my journey- fastest flyer around." Naal sprang to his feet, securing a few more pieces of gauze before helping to secure his sister, his sister who felt weaker by the minute, onto Vincente's back. He had to trust him with this.

The Clan


"This family is my Charge and I will protect them."
GLIDRA
Protective | Cautious | Introspective
Leader | Original Three
Magic: Ice Unusual / Silencer / Celestine: These dragons can seemingly slow down the minds of creatures, and the procession of time itself. They can put others into a deep sleep, and preserve objects exactly as they are indefinitely. Some of them use their powers on themselves, and walk the night for centuries after, emotionless and undying.

Glidra has always been one with the Ice. It preserves all, endlessly and forever. She had always had a spark for history and artifacts; the Icewarden has kept it all, safe, for them to discover and learn from.

But the Ice preserves all. And the Ice preserved the Sickness.

Her Magic was powerful. Her Magic could near stop time. But her Magic could do nothing to the past, and they had already succumbed.

She could save but three: Herself, Shadesong, and Prism.

They stole into the frozen night, both temperature and time grinding to a halt as they fled before the march of reality could come for them again.



"This fight to survive is the only world that I've known, and I fight to find the world after."
PRISM
Calm | Analytical | Forward-looking
Heir | Original Three
Magic: Shadow Multi-Gaze / Mesmer / Smoky Quartz. These dragons can listen to the dreams of others, and can hear a sleeping dragon from far away. Those who want to stay hidden should stay awake at all costs.

From his nest, he could hear sobbing.

It was faint, almost.. muffled? But he could hear it all the same. He asked his mother about the crying, but she asked him to go play with his siblings instead of imaginary friends. But he heard it, he did! And every day it got louder.
---
The rocks fell away, and the Gaolers roamed the skies, free at last. But the very moment that the rubble had fallen away, the cries were deafening.

In that moment, he knew that they were all going to die.


"I can hear the past, and it gives me power to change the future."
NAAL
Enthusiastic | Daring | Empathetic
Born on the 3rd day.

Magic: Water Uncommon / Deepwatcher / Azurite: These dragons are able to see events that happened in the past, at the location they are currently in.

He could hear crying.

Deep, mournful sobbing that wretched through the body of whoever it had taken.

Most of his body tingled lightly- he was sleeping, but could not entirely forego the cold around him. But the crying grew closer.

He tapped against the shell of his egg. 'I want to find them. I want to help them.' The tapping turned to scratching, his claws scrapping grooves into the thick shell. 'Don't be sad. It's okay.' A claw pierced through the lining.

A shivering wind bit his once-shielded hide, causing him to fluff up his feathered mane against the cold. He dragged his claw downward, widening the opening, and pulling shards of shell through. Once the hole was large enough for a head, he rolled onto his back and kicked, shattering the side of his egg.

Crawling out, he blinked against the brightness of the icy snow that reflected the moon's glowing light. 'Where are you? I'm over here.'

He could hear the crying pick up again, and he clumsily fumbled on his new legs toward the sound. 'There's more than one. Three, three who are sad.' His front legs slide out in front of him as he tumbled through the brush, coming to a stop in a small clearing.

'It's okay. Don't cry. I'm here.'

The stunned trio of dragons he had stumbled into immediately stopped their light-hearted conversation, shocked by a small, icy dragon that fearlessly confronted them through the snow.


"Our time is what we make of it."
LORETTA
Curious | Enthusiastic | Sincere
Born on the 18th day.

Magic: Arcane Uncommon / Listener / Morganite: These dragons are able to listen to the thoughts and emotions of others around them, but only what they are thinking and feeling at that moment.

"Why at night?"
"Keep your voice low, Loretta"
"...But why at night?"

Prism looked across the Hollow at each dragon in turn, checking that they remained undisturbed in their slumber.

"Powers such as ours can be.. offputting, to those without them. They deem them an invasion upon their privacy."
"But I can talk to them so much better when I can see what they meant!"
"Shhh. Yes, I know, hatchling."

Prism paused again, closing most of his eyes to focus in on his thoughts for a moment.

"We can practice honing your powers at night, extending their reach and ability, with the hatchlings within their eggs. They have no secrets yet to themselves that we may be intruding upon.

But in your waking hours, it shall be necessary to display restraint. Though we may feel differently, we must respect the wishes of our family and others best we can."

The small Nocturne hesitated, but nodded, seeming to trust his words.

"D'ya think I could talk to more people besides Props through my magic?"
"Only time will tell. There are others that have magics similar to yourself- myself and Naal included- but yours is particular in that it interacts with a dragon, and at any given moment.

For now, Prosperity and yourself can communicate by reading the emotions of one another, where you both possess an ability to read the feelings of others. But only those with that type of power can speak in this way. I believe you may be able to strengthen your magic, such that you can not only read emotions, but exert them. That would be true empathetic telepathy."

Loretta seemed to think on this, eyeing the ground between her feet as she mulled the idea over.

"..Practice makes perfect, right?"
"Correct."

The young dragon grinned, nodding with a determined look upon her face. She could do this. And it will be so much fun.


"I will redeem."
VINCENTE
Earnest | Fiery | Just
Joined on the 27th day.

Magic: Fire Common / Pyromancer / Topaz: These dragons can control fire, creating and controlling it. They can use it to great destructive effect, hurling spheres of flame and shaping blazing walls.

'Go play with a hatchling,' she said. 'Help Loretta learn to fight,' she said.

Vincente hardly thinks her rationale justifies the panic this one causes him every time she jumps at something.

And oh, he had just about had enough of the day when she was mauled by phytocats. But Loretta seemed none-the-worse. If you looked solely at her attitude. Her hide was a mess.

Prism had begun to study her habits in an attempt to work out all that the clash of Ice and Wind could potentially have affected Riln's development. Loretta, who had taken a quite a liking to Prism, was frequently at his side, chirping and attempting to run alongside her sister. It was honestly extremely adorable, and Loretta appeared to be trying to copy the Winded teleporting that her sister could perform. Perhaps, with her Arcanity, she would one day teleport alongside her as well. But one thing is for sure: Riln's personality had grown. What was once a shy, withdrawn hatchling grew into a vibrant, energetic, passionate, though still quiet, young dragon. She would become a great dragon that she will have been proud to have raised.

The clan establishes itself. Clan members are given magical affinities.


Glidra: Ice Unusual / Silencer / Celestine: These dragons can seemingly slow down the minds of creatures, and the procession of time itself. They can put others into a deep sleep, and preserve objects exactly as they are indefinitely. Some of them use their powers on themselves, and walk the night for centuries after, emotionless and undying.

Shadesong: Nature Uncommon / Naturalist / Jade: These dragons are very difficult to seriously hurt, since they can heal their own wounds within seconds and resist almost all poisons.

Prism: Shadow Multi-Gaze / Mesmer / Smoky Quartz. These dragons can listen to the dreams of others, and can hear a sleeping dragon from far away. Those who want to stay hidden should stay awake at all costs.

The clan establishes itself. Initial clan background in place.


The Clan of the Phoenix is a small, nomadic band of dragons that are all that remains of a once flourishing clan of the Southern Icefields.

With the appearance of the Gaolers, a long-slumbering sickness of the once-sealed cave systems near their homelands quickly overtook their clan. Weary and broken, all that remained of their kin were two Guardian dragons and a Mirror.

Taking nothing with them, leaving all that could be contaminated behind, the trio set off into the blizzarding landscape that had once been a comfort, but now was a cruel hellscape hindering their escape. But this sickness would die behind them, and they would find new land.

Glidra's lore is established. Pieces of the clan's beginnings are elaborated on here.


Glidra has always been one with the Ice. It preserves all, endlessly and forever. She had always had a spark for history and artifacts; the Icewarden has kept it all, safe, for them to discover and learn from.

But the Ice preserves all. And the Ice preserved the Sickness.

Her Magic was powerful. Her Magic could near stop time. But her Magic could do nothing to the past, and they had already succumbed.

She could save but three: Herself, Shadesong, and Prism.

They stole into the frozen night, both temperature and time grinding to a halt as they fled before the march of reality could come for them again.
