[LIST] [*]Have you wanted to try a Nuzlocke or Pinkerlocke, but don't want it to drain [i]cash, time, or precious resources[/i] away from your main clan? [*]Are you absolutely just too bad at coli (like me) to manage to keep your Nuzlocke dragons alive? [*]Do you really just want that mad cash so you can buy things to spoil your true dragons, but training fodder is just so BLAND? [/LIST] Let me introduce you to my new terrible horrible creation, [b]the Fodderlocke[/b]. The Fodderlocke works much like the Nuzlocke & Pinkerlocke, but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg or hours of heartache via dragging dragons to lvl 25 the slow way for no financial gain. This challenge combines the thrilling drama of a lore challenge with the fantastic joy of getting cash from completely disposable fodder. (And I’m sure your fodder will enjoy their harsh and dramatic lives before they get punted to the gods.) [i]This challenge will make your leveling [b]spicier[/b] than it has ever been before, satisfaction guaranteed.[/i] [color=slateblue]Modifications from testing in blue[/color] [center][emoji=pirate ship size=1] [b]Set Up[/b] [emoji=torch size=1][/center] You need your first disposable fodder child, naturally.

They Must know their worth. They Must know that they’re better than alllll the others. [*]If any dragon ever passes them in level, that dragon takes over as the new leader. Exalt the old leader. They must be banished in shame. [*]Recruit your first crime buddies. Grab 4 more of the cheapest adults off the auction house. Level each of them to 6.
