Spoiler: A Bit About the Game (click to show/hide)

Act I: The Dragon Egg
Scene I




You're somewhere. You don't know who you are, but you know it's dark. A faint light is visible through this brittle cage you're in. It's stuffy in here, and cramped, too. What do you decide to do now?

Things to Decide:
What will you call yourself?
What color are you? (Ignore the blue egg.)
What do you look like? (Give a brief description. Facial shape, wings, limbs, whatever.)
What do you do?

Realize that this is probably not the right board for this topic. Grow taller so joke doesn't fly over your head next time.

Name: Tal'dir
Color: Silver mostly, eyes the shade of the morning sun.
Appearance: One head, angled like a V with reptilian eyes and a long snout. Already has teeth, jagged maybe, made for biting and eating meat. Six appendages where two serve as wings, the other four are for movement and are covered by iridescent scales. Tail is short but it looks like it could be spread as a fan, for what purpose, you will have to discover.

Other words, built for flight.

What to do next: Peck at darkness with the egg-tooth. In other words, break the egg.

That could be a problem, Zig. I only found that one image of it.

I also vote for what you're voting. Eater of Chalk is a pretty cool title.

I support Tal'dir Eater of Chalk.

For color, i'd like light silver, with a copper stripe all the way from the nose to the tail, and on the forearm/legs. Eyes look like an ever-moving fluid multicolored pattern (like there was a bunch of coloured fluids in your eyeballs), with a vertical pure black vertical pupil.

Appearance: long and graceful. your spine have flexible soft spikes, connected by a translucid membrane. You also have it on the sides of your tail and your arms and legs.

Course of action: headbutt the wall.

EDIT: i forgot: we're scaleless, but our soft, hydrodynamic skin is as resistant as spiderweb (it's 5 times stronger than steel), wich enable us to move freely, yet it is able to instantly harden when hit, becoming even stronger (but rigid) for a short time: it can become as hard as diamond.

Finally the forums are back up! Unless they were working fine for everyone else but not me. In which case, finally I have access to the forums again! About the coloration and shape of the dragon, I made the images before I could see what a few people had voted. I tried to combine the ones I could, but I may not have gotten what everyone wanted. If not, I'll just change what it looks like over time.

Act I: The Dragon Egg
Scene I



You bash your headplate against the shell encasing you, struggling free of your protective prison. It's somewhat dark outside, but still far brighter than the translucent egg showed.


You shake off the bits of eggshell that cling to your scales as you pull your way out of the egg. You decide to call yourself Tal'dir, Eater of Chalk. You don't know what chalk is, but it sounds delicious. The thought of it makes you hungry. Or maybe it's because you haven't eaten anything in literally forever.

You probably should fix that.

Things to Decide:
What do you do now?

Stats:
Hungry
