You added your own dragon and Thuriaz main character (her dragon Megalith) bugged out as there's nothing left for her to do.
How was there nothing left for her to do? There are many dragons in this particular world - as both you and Thurisaz inferred in your writings. I sent
her a message explaining my ideas and she didn't seem to have a problem with it.
If you all have a problem, you need to speak up about it! Seriously!
Not all of the dragons are exactly the same. I just happened to create an older generation of dragons who thought differently than the newer
generation. I don't see the big deal? I don't get why you're trying to blame me for the fact that other people didn't write what they could have
written... Clearly, it makes sense to you, though.
Again, if you want something a certain way - you need to say that you want something a certain way. I can't read your mind.
Your dragon killed NowanKenubi's Dragon Lord - King of Fjüllwald. Now, King of Fjüllwald was supposed to be a human (not half-dragon or draconian);
but, we went along anyway. Yes, he had a wasting disease that could have killed him in three months (if he never summoned his courtly wizards and
healers to find the cure ... etc.). But, when your dragon leveled the town so UN-REALISTICALLY - you killed off the other writer's (NowanKenubi's)
main character too!
Again, NK can write whatever he wants to write. I didn't even realize that his character was still wasting away in Hyde - if you had simply brought
that up in this thread instead of doing whatever PM grumbling you've apparently been doing with the other writers, I would have written an easy "out"
for the Dragon Lord, where he wasn't even present.
As it was, I had been planning for the citizens of Lower City who'd moved into the Fist to "find" some hidden royals who took shelter in the deepest
cold cellars under the kitchens. I just never got around to writing that in due to real life commitments and issues.
Originally, the story was about the dragons who were the "fear factor" - summonable by Dragon Lords. The Dragon Lords were to be the rulers (though
the power behind the throne was the dragons).
How is that? Simple. If the dragons approve of the Dragon Lord, they do their bidding. If they disapprove, they forget or neglect to "strike fear"
into the people the Dragon Lord sent them to 'punish' - OR - more cleverly, punish those the Dragon Lord didn't want hit - OR - reward the intended
targets instead of punishing them with "fear" - OR - and so on ... you get the idea. As the instrument of "fear" - the Dragons are actually the
Ok, I get that, thank you for explaining.
This isn't a replay of Dragon Rider's of Pern - nor the Dragonlance novels (which I've never read but hubby has and he says your material is like
Like I said, have never heard of these series, so do not understand the reference.
With Thuriaz gone (my ONE and ONLY reason for having started the thread) and your repeatedly, admitted attempts to derail the story and take it off
track - I have no compelling reason to continue that DEAD story.
Perhaps I should top it off with some outrageous LORE that the commoners were all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful, lava swimming, lava sleeping,
rock-melting, with the powers to instantly level a huge castle AND metropolis in a single breathe like you did for the dragons.
The Black Fist is made of Obsidian. You wrote this. The Black Fist is still standing. Dragon only killed its occupants. As I noted, it took hours for
the city to be destroyed. Again, plenty of time for resourceful occupants to escape if they'd wanted to instead of curling up into fetal positions and
vanishing into thin air as you've assumed every single one of them did.
I still don't understand where you are getting this "all-seeing,all-knowing, all-powerful" stuff from.
Thurisaz stated that the dragons were telepathic and spoke to the Dragon Lords using telepathy. I have demonstrated them to be telepathic only to
Dragon Lords, folks of The Blood (who would also be Dragon Lords), and other dragons. Omniscience and Omnipotence never enter the story, other than in
your interpretation of my writings.
Like I said, you clearly need control of everything to be comfortable with the story - you can write whatever you want to write.
I was writing this for entertainment purposes, I have no reason to be upset about it.
I've decided that I will finish up my characters, it's the least I can do for them.
