Rules (from scarletite's thread):
Quote:
  1. Go to the AH and purchase the ugliest dragon you can find, typical exalt fodder. They must be triple-gened. Everything else is allowed. This will be your founder.
  2. Find this dragon a mate. The first mate must be similarly ugly; following mates do not have to ascribe to this rule, but must be below 10kt in the AH. (No Scrying Workshop is allowed to help decide—only once you’ve locked in their mate.)
  3. When they're ready, breed them together. You may cherry pick the heir you prefer.
  4. Find a mate for your heir much like you did for your founder in #2. Repeat as many times as it takes to get a dragon you would permanently keep. At that point, the challenge is over and you have won.

Additional house rules:
  1. To win, I need a dragon I would permanently keep without breed/gene changes. I may keep and change others (non-heirs), but it does not count as completing the challenge.
  2. I'm allowed one "freebie" mate who is self-bred fodder rather than AH fodder.

Frootloop has four days before she's RTB (I forgot you could filter AH by RTB status until after I bought her, and she was too perfect to pass up). Hyped to kick this off in a few days!

[size=5][b]Generation 1[/b][/size] @pinglist-20767 Hatchlings are here! We got a two-egg nest, one male & one female: The boy is surprisingly good. Hickory flaunt has purple accents to match indigo, and the olive gembond gives him a mossy look. If I hatched these colors for, e.g., a birthday g1, I'd probably keep. However, for purposes of this project, mossy/earthy vibe is not quite my thing. Hoping for something more vibrant.

Less aesthetic than her brother, but I think she's a more promising heir (I like red-range). She'll probably be the one to carry on the family line. I realize I haven't talked at all about my ultimate goal for the project, but I don't have a clear goal besides "something I like." I tend to like vibrant, wide-range XYZs that are surprisingly matchy and/or work well with outfits. idk! I'll know it when I see it! Short-term goals for the next generation: FIX THE TERT (1) No gembond (2) No swampy greens [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/92913588][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/350/929136/92913588_350.png[/img][/url]
