I waved her goodbye as she walked through, and the gate promptly shut behind her. I gave Granite an awkward smile, before taking off to fly over to the tree that Sallyon recommended.

The Hollow Fortress has been a relatively peaceful place in the past, which is ironic considering the chaos that Plague dragons usually like to cause. I suppose it was about time for something to happen there, though I certainly wasn't expecting an army of dragons from another dimension to take over. Sallyon has told me about their leader, Hyperion, and since then, I’ve noticed a lot of suspicious activity around the Fortress; there are few dragons going in, but lots of dragons are coming out. Surely it wouldn’t hurt if we investigated where these dragons are coming from, right?

As Sallyon and I walked up to the large gate of the Fortress, we were stopped by an imposing Gaoler with hardened scales covering its back and tail. Sallyon smiled.

Sallyon:
"It's good to see you again, Granite."

The Gaoler relaxed. Why does Sallyon personally know one of the dragons from another dimension?

Granite:
"Sallyon... I've been wondering what had happened to you. Are you here to stick your nose into other's business as usual?"

Sallyon:
"Perhaps a little, but I'm actually more concerned about how Hyperion is doing. As you can see, I haven't even brought my notebook! Would you mind letting us in for a visit?"

Granite considered it for a few seconds, before pointing to me.

Granite:
"Who's that?"

Sallyon:
"Oh, this is Faceless, my business partner. She also wanted to come and bask in the glory of Hyperion."

Granite leaned closer to me and studied me intently.

Granite:
"You're quite... shadowy. You may work with Sallyon, but I don't trust you."

He opened the gate to the Fortress and turned to Sallyon.

Granite:
"Since you don't even have your notebook, I can allow it. I'll let in one snooping Skydancer, but not two. I'm sure you'll be able to tell your friend all about how great Hyperion is after you're done."

Sallyon nodded.

Sallyon:
"Well, Faceless, you heard him. Maybe next time. I'll buy you something from the gift shop though. Why don't you wait... uh... over there? Go and enjoy the Plague wildlife."

She made an exaggerated motion of pointing at a fleshy Plague tree in the distance, and discreetly winked at me. I waved her goodbye as she walked through, and the gate promptly shut behind her. I gave Granite an awkward smile, before taking off to fly over to the tree that Sallyon recommended.

When one of these eggs hatches, the resulting hatchling is, most of the time, a mixture of wildly different colours and patterns. My theory is that these eggs are created when the residual magic of dragons in the air mixes, and that the more different dragons are from each other, the greater likelihood of an egg forming. So, naturally, I will gather some willing dragons, collect their residual magic, hope that some eggs form from it, see what hatches, and study the resulting dragons.

Magmargaret's Research Notes


59994702.png

Hyperion has been telling me for a while that it is becoming increasingly hard to recruit new warriors for his empire, and has been heavily hinting that he somehow wants me to do something about it. While creating dragons out of thin air is not my area of expertise, I have had a few theories that I would like to test.

You can often find unhatched eggs lying around the world. When one of these eggs hatches, the resulting hatchling is, most of the time, a mixture of wildly different colours and patterns. My theory is that these eggs are created when the residual magic of dragons in the air mixes, and that the more different dragons are from each other, the greater likelihood of an egg forming.

So, naturally, I will gather some willing dragons, collect their residual magic, hope that some eggs form from it, see what hatches, and study the resulting dragons. What happens if a dragon with 3 of the same coloured genes hatches?

Res (pair ideas)

- Ultra chaos eyeburner pair, where all genes have secondary colours?
So, Poison/toxin, Pinstripe/trail, Stitch/Patchwork, or Lionfish/noxtide, with Peacock or opal as the tert?

- Slightly less chaotic secondary colour gene pair, where both have fade/blend? Could be fun, but which tert? Maybe spines for some subtlety? STAINED???

- Crystal/facet/opal pair, for sparkly chaos
