The update is largely over. The opponents still need to be implemented in the coliseum, which is what I'm working on now. So you should see these guys start to pop up!

"you can't use the color red"

Okay, time for a lock, because this thread is spreading misinformation.
Quote:
"you can't use the color red"

Yes, you can. This link is the context to the above claim and needs to be read in its entirety.
Quote:
That being said, yes, we do allow and select zombie inspired skin or accent designs in general and for the Riot of Rot. Why? We made this decision years ago in an effort to find a compromise for our players who want to explore mildly gruesome designs without inadvertently creating a legion of dragons with skins or accents that depict them as suffering or tortured.

This is also why you can't use the color red or other blood-related hues in these designs. It changes the image from an undead creature to one that's alive and depicted as suffering. And we don't want that as an in-game item or on our website.

You can use the color red. What you can't do is use in it in designs that depict suffering. Our official site art is your guide on this topic.

As noted in the thread, if you have any questions or additional feedback to share with us, you can do so through our Contact Us page. Discussion of the rules is not allowed on the site. Thank you.

Possible Ancient Foreshadowing?

Is it possible that the Ancient Breed theme for this week is foreshadowing the release of the fourth Ancient...or am I just overthinking things?


Not foreshadowing


edit: Specifically, I was looking through my lair and Fear just sort of...made herself known, so I ran with it.

Good morning, everyone! I appreciate everyone's passion for sanitation logistics in this thread. There's no denying proper sanitation and waste management are necessary for a society to be healthy.

That being said...a couple posts were removed for being more focused on the body fluid/waste itself than how a society of dragons might possibly handle critical infrastructure. We'll let the thread stay open for now, with a reminder on our rules about obscene or vulgar content:

Gratuitously offensive content and inappropriate references focused on bodily fluids/waste (human, animal, OR dragon) are not allowed.

You think correctly. Teething, potty training, and an absolute beast of a baby dog who somehow exists as both the Unstoppable Force and Immovable Object.

I'm glad you're doing okay! I understand how chaotic puppies can be. Your coffee sounds really yummy and autumnal. I'm super excited for fall, and keeping busy with college. I keep impulse buying pretty dragons whenever I have free time.

My coffee is 100% fall cozy feelings. And I am very much over summer and mosquitoes.

My life right now is "What do you have?" and "What are you doing?" bookended with the occasional 4 am urgent potty run.


Sigh.
