    does the site you're on have any rules regarding character creation and copy right issues / plagiarism. if you do feel uncomfy about it, i would suggest to contact a mod over it on the site rather than confronting him directly and express your concern.

    ^ what Taltos said. but keep in mind with regards to the Wheel of Time specifically. RJ was very much opposed and disliked anyone doing fan fiction for this series.

  4. bubba's sorta trying to quit. he's tried vaping, but (much to my disappointment) still buys a pack every other day <_< this is his 2nd time trying to use vaping as a replacement, but the different style of smoking isn't doing it for him. we went to a vape shop, where they actually mix the liquids with the different strengths of nicotine. to vape correctly, you have to pull it into your mouth (kinda like sucking on a straw, just not pulling as hard) then inhale the vapor. if you're serious about it, i'd 100% suggest going to a vape shop, rather than buying the ones from behind the counter. its a bit more expensive, but you can get all sorts of flavors, and control exactly how much nicotine and they also said something about being able to adjust the 'throat hit' with the vapor *shrugs*
  5. XD its very addictive. its sorta like playing Pokemon, only instead of fighting them, you get to breed and trade them. this site is the Wiki: http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Cave_Wiki it has all of the info about the site, to include where certain eggs drop and what they eggs grow to become. theres no clear set way to play, most of the "goals" are user defined. so its kinda like Minecraft in that sense. so it realy depends on what play style you grow to fit into. most people have collection goals. they aim out to get at least a male and female (most aim to get more than one pair) of CB's per each dragon type, or the lowest generation possible of ones that can't be caught in the cave. others, spend their time trading prize dragons (Shimmers and Tinsels). each year around Christmas time theres a raffle held, and around 600 winners are picked to get either a CB Shimmer or a CB Tinsel. others focus on building lineages, which is where you focus breeding specific dragon types (normally dragons the user has a particular fondness for) together to make a certain pattern or to get to a certain lineage. Checkers and Pure Bred Even Generations (PB EG) are the most common lineage projects people typically pick. Checker involve 2 or more different breeds in a checker board patter. Pure Breds are with only 1 breed. example of a Pink and Red Checker and PB EG Moonstone example most (like myself), do a mix of the above. most dragons can be caught in cave, though some are much harder to catch than others. the only exceptions are Gaurdian of Natures (GoN's) can only be gotten via summoning. this uses an Ice, Magma & Thunder (dubbed Trio's) dragon combo. once you have at least one of each of these you can use the Summon Breed Specific Action (BSA) to try and get a GoN on your scroll once every month. the more Trio's you have, the higher % chance you have to summon a GoN. they Trio's are moderately hard to catch in cave, let me know and i can breed you a starter set, they wont be 2G (2nd generation) but it'll give you a way to breed your own hoard to summon with. Prize Dragons are gotten through trading, unless you win in the raffle, which is like a .5% chance because the user base is so big. theres two different types, the Western which is called the Tinsel Dragon and Shimmers which is the Eastern type. both variations come in 3 color variations: Gold, Silver & Bronze. most people are willing to gift prize lines over 4th Gen, depending on which CB ancestor the line descends from. Previous Holidays. Dragcave (DC) only has 3 internal holidays. Halloween, Christmas and Valentines. on the respective days (31st, 25th & 14th) a new Holiday Dragon drops in cave. during the week of the Holiday, the previous dragons from that holiday are breedable and you can find em in the AP (Abandoned Cave) the last are Hybrids, where you can only get the dragon by breeding two specific dragons together. like Avatars or Bluna's. theres about 15ish Hybrids in total on the site.
  6. a turp, two drakes and a dark myst pygmy :) yep i still play it loads ^_^ AH does as well, and i think Leelou does as well as Nyn *nods* welcome to the addiction of pixelated dragons XD Halloween is starting in a few weeks (the 25th to be exact) so its a good time to join up. the AP http://dragcave.net/abandoned will have all of the previous years dragons in it, which will only be bred dragons, and on the 31st the new Halloween specific breed will drop in the biomes (Alpine, Desert, Coast, ect) and those will be limited. its the only time you can catch em CB (CB = Cave Born, which means they have no lineage, which are what you're 4 babies are.) you'll need some Red's and Pinks. Red's incubate the eggs to make em hatch a day faster, pinks allow you to influence the gender of the egg, so you can make em go male or female. let me know when your's hatch in 4 days and i'll breed you a few reds and pinks ^_^ you'll need to put you're eggs in hatcheries to make em get views, unique views and clicks, so they can hatch and grow. wait until they hit the 6Day 15 Hour mark before putting them into hatcheries, or else they'll get sick. heres a list of Hatcheries you can use https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=89465 here is the link to the Help page thats basic info for getting started ^_^ if you need any help, shoot me a PM
  7. for me, i read SFF for escapism, not for a message or ideology; so to me, plot & story > message or making sure you have a token gay or transgender character to stay relevant with the current social issues. sometimes you get a great SFF book that also has a great message and social relevance woven in (like OSC's Empire Series or Orwell's Animal Farm) but it shouldn't be thrown in for the sake of "see i'm open minded about gay rights, theres a gay character in my series" which is exactly what i feel JKR did with Dumbledore <_< at any rate, i think an author should not be forced to incorporate a list of "relevant items" into their story. you can tell when narrative is forced rather than natural and most times its so jarring that it distracts from a good story. and an author should measure their success by how many books they sell, not by winning some arbitrary award. edit - and actually, i think throwing in a "token social character" to showcase ones open mindedness on a social issue actually reflects worse on the author then not including one at all.
  8. yes the new releases are LOVELY!!! i have a male and female of the Alpine, Volcano & Coast and a Male from the Forrest. all i need is a pair of each for right now, though i'm thinking of hoarding the Jade, Black and Blue ones its a shame they're so hard to catch now :( @heart - if you need any 2g's when mine grow up, let me know ^_^
  9. if we do, i hope its another batch of pygmy/two heads/drake ... or hybrids. i've come to dread regular new releases ... i hate the Almadines and Spessi's are as hard to find as Coppers <_<
  10. google docs is wonderful for keeping track of lines. Spirit of Healing and Humble Spirit are absolutely geourgous!! catching 2G's from the spriters alts is a great thing i missed a 2G valentine from a tinsel by being locked this past year XD right now i have these gems in my collection Lady and Twisted we're caught 2 years ago back to back. both the Alts are from the same spriter. i sent her a message to thank her and let her know they would be well loved Lady is a sweetie, she tends to be a great producer and generally speaking i have little headaches from her. her sibling Twisted however <_< is a brat. he's rejected 3 hard to get mates i've procured for him - http://dragcave.net/lineage/ldk0R, http://dragcave.net/lineage/zpWHt & http://dragcave.net/lineage/YvNts . he's also a hard producer and beyond stubborn. i was a bit non-pluss about the rejection from the copper i listed ... given the marrow's name in that lineage is Voldemort *sigh* i still wouldn't trad Twisted for all the world though. him and Lady are hands down my fav dragons on my scroll both have Lady and Twisted have holiday and non-holiday mates ^_^ Lady: http://dragcave.net/lineage/5qBiO & http://dragcave.net/lineage/Wervy Twisted: http://dragcave.net/lineage/iDSk8 & http://dragcave.net/lineage/sZNE7 i intend on breeding myself a 3G Heartseeker from Lady this year, and a 3G Ribbon Dancer from Twisted next year. i'm already breeding a 3G perfect Marrow mate for each of these future offspring this year as well. so i'll be able to take those two checkers to the 4th gen in a few years *grins* this year i caught him :) and i'm on Winya's list for both a Hellhorse and a Marrow from her this year. i'm ubber excited about that *nods* i dont have a good mate for the Radient Angel yet. i'm hoping to trade for a 2G Female Silver Shimmer form a Radient Angel one year .... but i'm not holding my breath for a 2G prize XD right now i've been breeding him with 2 prize-kins that Twisted rejected, but i'm not happy with either pairings tbh. i'm thinking about a green copper from a Radient Angle will look good though, but its still not perfect ya know ^_^ i'm also on the list for a marrow from Chloe :) i caught Alice this year as well ^_^ and i'm trading a winter magi offspring from the line this year for an Arsani form Malificent. Kenetics is the last one, and i traded for him. right now i've been using Mofo as a mate, but i'm not happy with the pairing tbh. i'm building Mofo a checker mate with female brown coppers and balloons, so i'm thinking i want to eventually hunt down a 3G perfect prize checker with Gold female prizes & whites.
  11. *grins like mad* i dont have a CB prize, but so far i've successfully collected at least 1 line from 15 of the 2015 prize dragons and have IOUs out from reliable people i've traded with for a few years now for about 50 other lines. none of them are 2G's and i dont care *snuggles her massive collection of shinies* all ur prize dragons be belonging to me XD heres a link to my collections if anyone if interested https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N_k2GMk0cnYMRnHo8JVpwGfE7HZJ3slXLouT-0pTizo/edit if you have a line from a CB prize i dont have and want to swap please message me ^_^ or if you see a line you want message me, majority of my lines i tend to gift (especially ones form older prizes or the longer gens, ie 5th gen & higher). i'm always happy to swap and spread the shiny love, and willing to trade some of my shorter lines for other eggs other than prize swaps.
  12. Red - Blue Aes Sedia ummm does participation count if you just now posted in a few of the activies
  13. ah man i can't believe i missed this!! i haven't seen a RP thingy like this since i was an aspie ^_^ reminds me of the olden days. this was great and a pleasure to read *nods* cheers to y'all who put this together and hopefully i'll be around for the next one
  14. What soap? Why would you want to kill soap with fire? I mean at best your so LD liquidate it, not kill it .. But still I don't get it. What did soap ever do to you?
  15. Wish you'd been there, dude.... lies man, total and utter lies. i mean it was hard to not stare ... but it wasnt a "oh man thats so raven" sorta thing ... it was more like "OMG that guy just got decapitated by a train" sorta thing. you dont want to look, you know you'll regret it, but morbid curiosity sets in and you look. then no amount of therapy or bleach can cleanse the minds eye from seeing what never should have been seen.
  16. really though jen, given the grotesque nature of that particular bit ... something things are better safer left to the imagination. i, for one, could do without knowing that >.<
  17. **insert Crocodile Dundee reference here**
  18. I'll take em lol Any egg born on April 1st is still showing as the egg sprite. It's not a glitch, its intentional, so no one be freaked out by it lol I have 5 of em. Two blue gems, a spring and 2 rivers. I find it amusing still, I'm thinking of these hatchies as being a bit mentally retarded. I keep thinking if this happening *hatchie walks up to a dragon wearing an egg shell* Hatchies: April fools *laughs* Dragon: *puzzling, yet annoyed look* April 1st was 3 days ago little one. Your a bit late to the punch line. Hatchies: April Fools! *laughs some more* Dragon: were you hatched under a power line, or did your mother eat paint chips when she was forming you? Hatchies: APRIL FOOLS! *almost crying their laughing so hard* Dragon: *walks away bewildered* I just don't understand the youth of today
  19. kjhasdlkfjhoiasjdflknsdfa i keep mis-clicking and locking myself with flamming Howler drakes! all i want is one more gemstone, to try and get a pair of each color. *glares at the egg and my vamps for not being able to bite it*
  20. yep there is. took me by surprise as well, didn't find out about it until this morning. 3 new eggs 1st is "A small puddle of condensation has collected under this egg." which is an eastern dragon without dimorphism, is found in the Forest Biome 2nd is - "This egg is encrusted with colorful gemstones." which comes in 3 color variations as a CB (all 3 can be obtained and have been verified as obtainable from other scroll owners), Red, Green & Blue. Its found in the Jungle Biome and has adult dimorphism. 3rd is - This massive egg is covered with thick plates." It has dimorphism at both the hatchie and adult stage, and is found in both the Jungle & Forrest biomes.
  21. i've thought about freezing it *nods* bubba suggested flash freezing with liquid nitrogen. i was gonna try putting some tablespoon sized globs on a piece of greased parchment paper and throwing it in the freezer over night. i'd actually thought about this, but i'm horrible at making rock candy. i might try this though, see if the local honey seller here has a recipe for it. the problem with tea is that its hot. and it needs to be hot to dissolve the honey. heat begins to break down the pollen. when you use raw honey for allergyies, the bigger and more intact the pollen particles, the better. basically you're looking for honey thats straight from the comb, where the only filtration that occurs is to pour the raw honey over a filtration mesh to get rid of the big chunks of honey comb. and the bigger the pollen particles, the better the results because the body absorbs them more. i'm going to try this, thanks!! i want to build an immunity. i tried allergy shots many moons ago when i was younger and they worked fabulously. problem was i felt so much better i stopped going, and then my allergies got worse so i started them up again. it was a viscous cycle and my own stupidity. had i kept up with the shots, if probably be allergy free (or near enough). i'm sorta scared of taking straight bee pollen. i used to have an allergy to bee stings when i was younger, and given how reactive my immune system is to pollen right now, i'm actually scared straight pollen might make me even sicker.
  22. I have sever allergies to Pollens and Molds (especially Pollen from the Pine Family and currently I have a bad case of Hay Fever.) I've read in many places that raw, un-processed honey from local vendors is a great way to help he body build up an immunity to local pollens (in a similar method that allergy shots do, so that the immune system doesn't go bat-shit crazy during the pollination season). I've actually tried this for about a month, and it seemed to help lessen the affects of seasonal allergies, but eating a table spoon of honey by itself or on bread get old very quick. I like honey, just not that much. I was wondering if any of you might know of a method to "cold-from" raw honey into a hard candy? I've researched it a bit on the internet, but all of the hard candy recipes call for heating up the solution; for raw honey to be with allergies it cannot be heated, as the heating processes destroys and breaks down the pollen particles.
  23. Valentine breeding is upon us! ^_^ get em while they drop people
  24. true story - i hear from a teacher about kids names .... she had twins in her class named after Jello. the only one i can recall is Orange-jello (pronounced Oh-Ronja-Allo). it maybe stupid, and laugh worthy. and i pitty the kids .... but the government has no right to dictate names. its not constitutional and goes against our 1st amendment rights (freedom of speech and expression). you want the freedom to say what you want and wear what you want and not be shut up by the government; then you also have to give the idiots the same rights; otherwise you're part of the problem imo. Constitutional rights are an all or nothing sort of thing, there is no "well ya but i dont like what their saying so they can't say it" sort of bass-akwaredness allowed. Equality goes both ways, not just the way you agree with. granted the case in the OP is in France ... but here in the states that crap wont fly yeah http://abcnews.go.com/US/parents-cannot-regain-custody-children-nazi-inspired/story?id=11334970 the parents lost custody of both children. not because of the names but because of the un-fit living conditions.
  25. You know whats more epic than sharks with lasers on their head? A potato gun attached to a flame thrower! Takes a whole-nother level to the meaning of Hot Potato.
