War of the Dragons

I’ve begun work on my new game War of the Dragons. In it, you play a person from the village of Ferncliff on the continent of Eurethia. There are three species of dragon on this island - the meadow, cliff, and sky dragons. They are currently at war with each other, and it’s not uncommon for an entire city to be demolished as collateral damage to his war. The main character, the one you play as, has stolen a dragon egg that you will raise as your own. Together, or with help from others, you must stop the war of the dragons.

Currently I only have the prologue done, and I plan on updating every so often.

(Thanks to those who told me how)

@Citrine_Dragon - As @EclecticEccentric says, the first step is to host your game.

Once your game is hosted, you can take the link location and share it in your post via the link function (fourth icon in the menu from the left)

I’m going to hold off closing the thread, assuming you are going to post your demo within the day.

This is not bad. I was kind of expecting more from the prologue but not bad so far. Not unless you plan to elaborate more on chapter one that is.

This WIP has potential! I wished it could be longer, but I’ll keep an eye out on this thread.

PS: I picked the white egg, figured it would be a sky dragon. Just a question though, don’t dragons have a superior sense of smell? Unless I’m wrong, then why can’t the green dragon sniff you out of your hiding spot?

I think maybe because the other dragon interruption. So it think a little human is no threat. Anyway this is a good start and i will watch this wip.

P.S. is the dragon always be male?

No I managed to get a female sky dragon. After a few restarts. Just a small test on my end.

Found a error when I tried to save.

Found a strange quirk of coding. When the dragon hatches and the text determines if it’s male or female - I was able to go into my stats screen, then when I came back my male dragon became female.

I think the easiest way to avoid this issue would to be moving the *rand to somewhere earlier in the code (even the startup.txt if you have to) so it won’t be noticeable.

Ah, thank you! I will fix that when I get a chance today :slight_smile:

@Blood_rose there’s a 25% chance to be female

I don’t know how to implement the saving, I think I’m gonna disable that until I figure out how to make it work

This wip has a lot of potential! Of course, it could be longer, but if I’m guessing correctly, you just started this wip, so that may change. I’m definitely going to be keeping my eye on this and waiting patiently for future updates! ^•^ Good luck with this, and please take your time on it.

A suggestion from little old me… provide a description for each dragon type. Those of us that play DnD can assume things, but you could totally flip things and have your own rules from dragon kind.

Okay, I’ll work on it :slight_smile:
You mean like a description of their personality and abilities, correct?

More or less, yes.

Sky dragons stand for: text goes here and range in these scale colors.
Cliff dragons stand for: text goes here and range in these scale colors.
Meadow dragons stand for: text goes here and range in these scale colors.

Something like that.
