Introduction: This is a bottleneck project. Breed 32 unrelated dragons => 16 => 8 => 4 => 2 => 1 final heir. Highlander-style. There can be only one.

I don’t actually care if there’s only one, though. I’m keeping a lot of the progenitors, and I’ll sell the non-heir progeny if somebody wants them. This is not, in fact, the Quickening.

But most of the spares will be exalted so it’s a bit like the Quickening...

Background: I got really attached to the first dragons I bought. Really attached. They’re just cheap fodder, but I worked really hard to get them all gened just so. Unfortunately, my tastes have changed, and some of them are simply unworkable now. I am too attached to exalt them. But I want lair space. Alas.

So, to honor them and free myself of this false obligation, I am creating a single heir of the entire clan. You know, get everybody together and have a baby. Just something fun to do with 19 friends and 12 strangers on the weekend (I’ve only got 20 genetically distinct moderns, so I had to pick up a bit of fodder to fill out the roster). Once this is all done, hopefully, I won’t feel too bad about clearing out some space.

Procedure:
  1. Purchase 12 cheap fodder to fill out 16 pairs. I’m going to exalt them, but they should at least have genes that I don’t hate. Pick up some breeds not currently represented in my clan, see what happens?
  2. Make 16 pairs from 32 progenitors. I’m keeping rarity roughly equal in the first generation so I’m less likely to be overrun by plentiful breeds. Also pairing breeds I don’t like together so I can weed them out quickly.
  3. Finishing all my gene projects. No basic terts! Except my custom progen, I’ll just gene her kid before the next round of nests. Gray is ew.
  4. Breed each pair once. Re-breed if sex ratio is off, otherwise accept what the RNG provides.
  5. Construct subsequent pairs based on what I like best - this project need not be entirely random. Pair strategically for breed and gene rarity. Continue until I reach the inevitable conclusion.
We are here

Desired outcome: Maybe an F-pose ridgeback or M-pose spiral? I’d like something new. Absolutely not pearlcatcher, skydancer, obelisk or mirror. And if the colors don’t match I’ll be sad.

I got tired of waiting on Baldwin, and I only have so many nests, so we're going to work on steps 3 and 4 simultaneously for a while.

Starting off with my custom progen and her Johnny-come-lately partner in Pair 3: Dream of Large Women pt1, who (rather spitefully) gave me 2 eggs. I see red-brown jaguar/rosette in my future.

Also nesting two of my favorite permas in Pair 10: BogsOnly[dot]com, with a much more respectable 4 eggs. Almost definitely going to be poison/toxin/capsule in terrible, garish color combos.

Baylinheth - welcome! Let me know if you'd prefer to be on the pinglist.
