SETTING

Each race of dragons has its notable and powerful individuals, but for the races that already stand above the rest, those individuals lay claim to the greatest honour, land, and titles. Known as the Elders of their kind, they gather the dawn before a solar eclipse to discuss and settle anything that may have risen between them, and, if it is close to their time, who the next Elder of their race will be.

Main plot will be revealed in RP

RULES

  • Permitted races will be listed in a DNR below
  • Characters cannot have traits that are new to their species, but must exaggerate one or more already present traits- for example, a Bewilderbeast will not suddenly be able to spit fire, or a Fireworm Queen gain the ability to regenerate frost dragons.
  • There may only be one of each species, unless you are acting as a potential Elder
  • Reserves last approximately 3 days, with extensions to WIP submissions as they are updated.
  • There are no warnings on reserves
  • Magic and paranormal happenings are permitted to an extent. PM me with a draft post if you’re unsure of the content
  • Subject Line (highlight) > do these sunglasses make my angst look too big?

Character Form:

None! Free-style, lads, just tell me the necessary info, in any kind of layout that gets the job done, and we can work from there. Keep it short n sweet, or cram as much detail as you can into it- just make sure it’s readable. When it’s finished, change the subject line to ‘COMPLETE’

 

Please wait for the DNR’s before posting!

 Art by me

Rubidian, a great Titanwing Eruptodon, resides in an ancient caldera that looms over the ocean. She nurses the next generation of the great fire dragons, from the unsuspecting Terror, to headstrong and witty Nightmares. But beyond her present is far more impressive feats.

It is said as a hatchling, her body was hotter than the lava flows around her, and her mind sharper than a Skrills. Rather than learning from her predecessor, and simply continuing things after they left for Vanaheim, she took forceful control of the land and kicked out the old Eruptodon. She claims more peaceful events, that they left early since she learned so fast, but older nest members question this.

Her young rule drew attention quickly, before she could earn the trust and loyalty of the nest. First, a Great Death, barely fledged; it fled with burns like no other Eruptodon her age had inflicted before. A family of Typhoomerangs, brutish but efficient; their whirlpools of fire did nothing to deter Rubidian, and joined the nests ranks in submission.

But most memorable was after a mere two years of rule, when a graceful Fireworm Princess took envy of the caldera. The battle was long, and the two superheated dragons refused to back down. Bound by honour, the nest could only watch, as the tide changed back and forth between each dragon, until Rubidian did something no other dragon had ever done before- the Fireworm Princess was burned, her sun-hot scales withered and turned black, fire outmatched and for once, dimmer than another dragon.

Rubidian was declared the next Elder the following moon, and as soon as the old Eruptodon passed, she took his place and has met with the others many times since. As time went by, she grew into the magmatic queen and stands unchallenged over her steeping volcano, her only truly constant feature being her oddly blue and lavender eyes.

She still has plenty of fight left in her, but others encourage her to begin the search for her heir soon. Be it sudden age or old foes, many believe her end is approaching quickly. As far as she’s concerned? It better do its da.mn best to take her down.

 

Despite being one of the smallest Elders, Rubidian demands great respect and for good reason. Her confidence lies in experience and numerous victories, so she isn’t afraid to put a larger dragon in its place- a Great Death has tried to eat her in the past, but like many others who cross her, it was severely burned.

Iguana: Tide Master, Iron-Scales, Vast-Lands Emperor

https://i.imgur.com/nAgxIxh.png

 

Plot Importance: Low to Medium              Restrictions: None

Renowned for his youthful days of directing war efforts and sieging countless rival nests, Iguana is one of the few of his kind who lives a more mobile lifestyle, and actively sees to his nests defences and needs. His body seems to have neglected him of Titanwing developments, but he stills makes expert use of his capabilities.

Most would refer to Iguana as rude, paranoid, greedy, and stubborn; but most only get up to first impressions. While it’s true that he isn’t the most pleasant to be around, Iguana is bound by honour to any task set to him and will go above and beyond with expectations. If you can convince an alliance with his expansive nest and surrounding territories, Iguana will dedicate entire factions to your service when it is called upon.

And what an ally he makes. Iguana’s territory is immeasurably vast, with no individual island outfitted to house his subjects, thanks to a past of ruthless attacks to surrounding nests to his, claiming the islands as his own and creating an empire. His original nest island, at the centre of it all, is where he spends most of his time commanding hoards of warriors, hunting parties, and mixed exploration teams. Iguana owes much of his success to this home island, for it sits by a key channel that flows with the warm waters of the southern ocean, and is a boon to many others- a boon under his control. Iguana has before changed the flow of this current, crippling the health of a rival nest upstream and giving him massive advantage in its siege and takeover. While he managed to return the current and island to its original states, the effects of this environmental alteration still echo through the islands today.

 Apart from changing the ways of a major ocean current, his rise to Elder was earnt through his exceptional physical resilience. The most notable point where he proved his worth was in battle against a Screaming Death that was trying to take over an island on one of his borders.

Its drilling maw was practically useless against Iguana’s scales, barely even managing to break skin on typically soft parts such as his wings. Its fires almost went unnoticed by the behemoth, Iguana not really needing to make any effort to dodge the fire rings. And before the Screaming Death could annoy Iguana to the point of retaliation, it saw the futileness of its efforts and fled.

Lunarflare: The Waiting Cataclysm, Ally to Men

https://i.imgur.com/nX5bkWO.png

 

Plot Importance: Low to Medium             Restrictions: None

Lunarflare is the draconic embodiment of patience. Rather young for an Elder, at only 140 years (give or take a few), she seems to have made it her goal to sort out everyone’s drama with a sit down and talk over some deer. It rarely goes well.

Her main reason for becoming an Elder is more of a potential for greatness, rather than proven prowess. With blue-hot scales, usually a sign of unstable overcharging, and a colony that grew quicker than any other, so far nothing has annoyed or threatened her enough to make a display of her abilities, but what she does do in a casual mood is enough to get the message across (whether or not that message is intentional is unclear at times). From melting the ground beneath her when she lays down, to igniting the air with a sneeze, even Rubidian takes caution with her.

Her history is rather tame. With her nest established after a few months of exploring once away from her mothers colony, there was little argument from the small viking settlement on her chosen island. As both colonies grew in size and strength, clashes were bound to happen, but she decided against a hostile approach and decided to test the relationship between man and dragon at that time and worked around the Vikings, eventually with them once mutual agreements were settled. It's no surprise that they flourished, and attacks against the village were quickly won, and soon enough the island drew more attention from stronger forces.

One such force was the previous Fireworm Elder, who looked to test her might in battle and intellect. She was certainly a more refined dragon than Lunarflare, but in a measure of raw power, the younger Fireworm outmatched her by a tenfold.

Lunarflare has so far neglected the other Elders any stories of her distinct injuries, such as her chipped horn, but gives similar respect to the others by not asking much about their personal lives unless invited to.

Name: Sting Ray

Age: 24

Gender: Male

Species: Speed Stinger

Appearance:

Likes/Dislikes: Sting Ray likes racing, often because he wins most of the time, and he likes Salmon. But he hates herring and being told to wait.

Personality: Sting Ray can be impatient, and is often seen running across the land. He, if needed, will compete with other dragons.

Extra: He is the next one for alpha position in the pack by tradition, but seen as unqualified. He will have to proove himself as a leader, trustworthy, and he will need to show he can fight, or he wont become the alpha. Despite having most of those qualities, the pack still don't accept that. They dont seem to like him much, as they're all much stronger and all that.

Bringer of Cold, Crusher of Ice Mountains, Traveler of Dephts,

The Frost Current...

 

Svarlsæta

 

Svarlsæta is a great female Bewilderbeast, who's white and black scales remind you of the coat of a snowy owls. She hatched alone in the deep caverns of an island, protected from the world by the ice her parents had coated the cavern with. As soon as she had crawled out of the egg, she began her conquest of becoming bigger and stronger, to be fit as a great queen of a nest. Withing the first moths of her life she had grown expantually, learning more and more on her own, and slowly but surely gaining her ability to mind control others. Once she had becomen big enough to set out, she crushed down her home island and swam out to the open sea and began her search for the perfect place to build her palace, her sanctuary.

On her travels she gained the loyalty of many dragon, mostly Tidal Class, and after only a year she had amassed a great number of dragons to call her subjects. She would now and then find a suitable spot and start building a nest, but she always found something wrong with the location, wether it was the terrain, other nests nearby, or simply because she felt it didn't fit her needs, she made these failed attempts of nests into bases, where she could come now and then and rest, as well as let some of her own subjects take control over for her when she was gone.

Wherever she went, coldness would follow as her whole body seemed to radiate it, she was like a moving icicle. The water around her would gain a thin layer of ice as she touched it, and the air around her was so chilly that during summer days, there would be a vail of mist surrounding her. Not only did she feel cold, her whole body looked like it was covered in frost. Her body white as snow was slightly jagged, and the spines covering her with black markings were even more so, making her spines a slightly feathery look to them. And her eyes were a chilling silver hue, drilling into the soul of whoever looked into them.

Over time she grew even stronger, and as a full on adult she got to face many foes over time. She was once challenged by a Foreverwing, a year or so younger than her, and after a brutal battle she emerged victorius. With the defeat of a great alpha dragon, she became more reckognized, and came to face more opponents than before.

Probably the most memorable event of her life had to be when she was up against another Bewilderbeast, who took her as a threat to his colony which he has established on an island group not too far away of where they crossed paths. He was around as big and strong as she was, and his amount of followers was nothing to be laughed at. The battle following their encounter took days (or that's what the witnesses say anyway), neither side willing to give up. He wasn't having a word of what Svarlsæta was trying to tell him, that it was a misunderstanding and that she was only passing by. Well, it was partly true since she has no interest in taking over his nest, she only wanted to see if the island group would prove to be a good candidate for a nest. Well, too bad. Each of the rulers followers weren't there watching either, they fought against each other, serving their own alpha. The two were equally matched, until Svarlsæta managed to find just the right opening at just the right moment, and struck her tusk at his exposed belly. Severely wounded, the opposing Bewilderbeast fell down, knocking down a rock formation with him, and she would have finished him off if she hadn't been so wounded herself. She retreated with what remained of her followers, and after a few days of recovery she got the news that the Bewilderbeast she had fought against had perished. The nest had been disbanded, and after a few more weeks of recovery she returned to the nest, finding it almost completely empty, most dragons haven fled from the place after their king had been brought down. She turned the abandoned nest into another base, not finding it as good as she had expected, which honestly annoyed more than just a few of her subjects.

As for what Svarlsæta herself is like, most would probably refer to her as a cold, also literally, and a distant ruler who still seeks for the perfect place for her to settle down, and has swum across the many seas. But those who actually knew her, would say that she was a rather humorous individual, not so in public, but around those who's trust had been earned, she was more open to. She had her way of taking things seriously, but also somewhat sarcastically at times, and keeping her eye out for others. As for making decidions and choosing things, she is very picky, which is most of the reason she still doesn't have a set nest. And, as you would expect from a great ruler, she has a no nonsense kind of demeanor when it comes to ruling her subjects, as well as taking care of serious business.

 

After the previous Elder of her kind had passed away, it had been decided that Svarlsæta was to become the new Elder, simply because not only was the mass of her followers greater than those of her kind, she was a powerful individual with lots of potential too for the future up ahead. If only she could just find a place to settle down already for once...

Name/Titles: Barnabas the wise, Wonderwym, Woodmaker, Eye of the beholder, Sleeping hive, King Barspams, Old Barny, the earth king.

Age: Too old

Appearance: Barnabas looks exactly like most foreverwings. Though his size maybe larger than average, with his being the same size as the bewilderbeast if not even a little bigger.

Description:  Barnabas resides on the island where his body become the mountain itself and home to all kind of species that are his subject. Though Barnabas, closest incommand, dubbed the seedlings are most consist of the trickster dragons; the species that relied on special hunting ability other than the brute. Likewise Barnabas is the alpha that's known to played the important role during the great dragon war as the great tactitien other than going into the battle himself(even though with all the firepower and his size he's more than capable). Having one of the longest reign, he out lived many fellow elders, been through several wars and even the multiple elder meetings. Was thought to be stepping down for so many time then go around and decided he's capable to rule a bit more, to other candidates annoyance. Barnabas, in his old age, is an carefree if not a little eccentric and seemingly inresponsible elder. He spend most of his time sleeping, crackling at jokes and prefer his subject and strangers a like to treat him casually. He seems kind, keeping a big smile on his face no matter what situation and never once let his anger shown but in truth he always plotting and waiting for the oppaturnity to act. The mixture of his brilliant mind and kindness non-controling against consent made the subject become very loyal to him, even though all of them are casual enough to joke or even being honest about what they dislike. As of late, Barnabas and his dragons are painfully neutral and seldomly take part in any conflict. But they keep watching, through many eyes and ears that spread through out the dragon world like hidden network, waitng to make use of the situations for their own benefit.

Notable Ability: Telepathy, Like most Alpha species, Barnabas can called for and command his subjects through sounds that traveling through distance, what even more unique and special for his ability is that he can do it individually and telepathically. With such loyal subjects, they're essentially ears, noses and eyes that traveling place for him.

Lava, Like all Foreverwing, Barnabus spit out Lava though he rarely does it in combat and mostly done it for the sake of nutrient, gardening is his hobby that's all

RP will be starting in a few

RP will be starting in a few hours! We'll begin on our way to the meeting island, so you know where to have your character instead of everyone being spread out all over the place.

Also, a quick note just in case: since this is in essence an improv story, you can start beef between characters to add more to the story- whether or not you check with the other person is up to you.

Rubidian

Over a calm blue ocean, a living mountain of lava flew over the water on fiery wings. The Titanwing Eruptodon was already a formidable individual, but something about her was more special than other dragons her age, or even species.

Rubidian kept her gaze focused on the faded outline of the moon in the sky, quickly approaching the sun. It might be nearly an hour until the eclipse, but the island was still a considerable distance away.

In her draft, a blue and white Monstrous Nightmare glided too, also Titanwing but barely settled into his new skin. Bakatuun, the commander to her fighters, was comically small in comparison to her, normally the biggest dragon in the air.

But today he would be accompanying her to a Elder Meeting, where he would be one of the smallest beasts, and likely among the weaker ones (but still nothing to be scoffed at).

She could see the others approaching in the distance. This island would soon become the epicentre of power in the world, dragons deemed unstoppable all collected in one place. Every meeting had the potential for disaster- islands had been sunk before, and one-time, things got so out of hand that Rubidian was fairly sure a rogue fireball hit the moon itself.

Either way, hopefully this Meeting would go smoothly. Goodness knows she had had her fair share of wild meetups, and how much was there left that could happen?

Sting Ray was jetting over the water, in the shadow of the great Eruptodon. He watched Rubidian as the island was slowly coming closer. He called a greetings up to her and the others that could actually hear him over the wind and waves. Then he went back to his thoughts.

Svarlsæta~

A giganting white and black speckled mass moved effortlessly through the calm waves, that instantly gained a crust of thin ice as they came into contact with it. When looked at from above, it was near impossible to tell what the mass was as it was hidden beneath the waters surface, and there was a sparse vail of mist surrounding the movement. But if you were to go beneath the oceans surface and be able to resist the stinging saltyness of the water, you would see the great ruler of many, Svarlsaeta, accompanied by her tactitian, Kolilumo. Kolilumo is a Titanwing Seashocker, who is covered in many different shades of purple and black, strangely reflecting his strange personality. He's mostly referred to as Kolilumo, although technically the left head is named Koli, and the right one Lumo, though the two don't seem to mind. He stayed close to his alpha, while both of the heads looked in different directions.

Svarlsaeta neared the surface, and broke through dramatically, shaking off the water that rushed down from her head. She looked up towards the sky, and saw that the moon was not far from the sun anymore. Soon the meeting would begin, and all the others would be gathered on the island. Turning around to get a better view of the surroundings, she could easily spot the big moving fire boulder known as Rubidian, along with a harder to see speck that she could only guess was another dragon accompanying her. The two of them were not very close, neither were they enemies, so the relationship between them was fairly neutral. And looking down from the sky over to the sea level she could see a trail of water spray following something too fast for her eye to follow. She assumed it was the newest Speed Stinger Elder, well, yet to be Speed Stinger Elder. The young male was reckless from what she had heard, and had to prove himself as capable of leadership. This had her a bit worried for how the meeting would progress, she had heard many stories of how countless of previous meetings before her had gone catastrophally. But, shaking the thought out of her head, she could faintly hear how the Speed Stinger called out to Rubidian, and could already predict that no matter how unmannered the young one would result to be, this meeting was going to be interesting. At least more interesting than the previous meetings she had attended had been.

Sinking back into the water, she glanced over at Kolilumo. The both heads were chattering about something in their own language, like they tended to do when they had nothing else to do. Svarlsaeta had started picking up words and sentences of their secret language that no one else really knew what to make of, and it was truthfully somewhat amusing how such wise and tactical minds could be taking part of such childish activities and habits that they do, and yet there was meaning behind each and every one of them, some not as clear as others. They reminded her a bit of one of the other Elders, Barnabas if she recalled correctly. She had taken a liking to his carefree personality, as she found feeling more calm in his presence, not that she would straight out admit it though. She still had her dignity and titles to keep in tact. Though he did fascinate her as well. He was too old for anyone to be keeping count of the years he had been roaming the world, and had held a great importance in the Great Dragon War, a war that had taken place long before she had hatched.

Suddenly she felt her right back leg get stuck and pulled down to an immediate stop, causing the water around her to thrash violently. It caught her off guard, and quickly looked back to see what had caused her to get stuck. It looked like her foot had accidentally been caught in a big, underwater rock formation, one all too familiar to her. "...I cannot believe that the exact same dang rock has caught me again" she mumbeled to herself. She tugged her foot out of the cave in which her foot had been caught, and resumed her swimming like nothing had ever happened.

Do these sunglasses make my angst look too big?

I'm not quite sure if one can make their angst look bigger, but I'm certain the tinted lenses hide it more. :) That was the reassuring thing to say, right? (If you get that reference, you are awesome!)

Also, tracking! May join if it's still open and I find the time.

Barnabas the foreverwing

On the other side in the distance, another island approached. In the same manner as the white titanic dragon, the old Foreverwing has no other option but to soldier through the currency as his size abd weigh became too much for his old wings.  Though as Barnabas isn't the tidal class dragon, he kept both his head and his back afloat with the help of his wings, it's also because he doesn't want to sink part of the island under the water.

Barnabas  is big, even for the foreverwing standard. While his species like to disguise themselves as mountain or the island, it usually only take 1/4 or it, like how those six teenager Foreverwing banded together and form the island human dubbed Nepenthe, or something along the line. Good riddence to those fools.  Barnabas himself's big enough to take 2/3 of his island and thus there's been many habitat still roaming about at the top. Other elders would bring only their most trusted individual but Barnabas both bring all his top seedlings and even some of his subject who took comfort in making themselves at home on his back. that's always gain sore eyes and look of disapproval by the others but Barnabas would just shrug as if to say I can do what I want. Not like he has keep his word with handling the title to the said candidates anyway, and they keep changing everytime he's here.

Barnabas hummed he saw the other approached, the closest one being Svarlsaeta as he recognized the tiny barely recognizable wave causing by the large submerged dragon. But Barnabas knows. he saw this multiple time before. He also recognized the irrupted stop and thrashing of water on the certain spot he remember and just chckled. He guide himself closer to the younger elder

"Whoopsy there, used to gets me as well" He winked and used this chance to take the lead. His feet finally found the ground when he reached the shallower water then he heaved his body up. Water splash and fell from his body and long beard-like enthrill "My old body is not up to this island hopping anymore" he huffed "Why won't they listened when I said they should held this kind of thing my place the next time around"

"Then you should consider resignation ,again, sire" Dug, the seedling sweet death teased

"Nooo, but I still like my job" Barnabas moaned jokingly.

"Then you should quit saying you going to let someone be the next elder then changed your mind the last minute, Titantim still pretty sore about it from all those years ago"

"I am not!"

"Don't be so sore, Timmy, you know how I am"

Rubidian

A small voice yelled over the churning of the sea and wind below her.

The Speed Stinger, whose name she had already forgotten, acting as a trial to raising his kind to being able to become an Elder. She was still confused as to why he was joining them; Rubidian had heard nothing of great feats or formidably heightened abilities in the young dragon (or let alone the whole pack), and what she had heard wasn't promising.

It would be interesting to see how the Speed Stinger would handle himself among the gargantuans and Titanwings.

Svarlsæta~

Svarlsaeta heard the old and familiar voice of Barnabas speak to her, even from beneath the waters surface. She let a small smile unintentionally form on her face, but it was gone as soon as it came. She noticed how he took the lead, and soon he was on the island. Not wanting to be left behind, she quickened her pace a bit, swimming and eventually climbing her way to land. And as she came to the shore she looked back at Kolilumo. He was drifting away from her side and swimming towards another part of the island near the shore. Since he couldn't walk he had to find another way to get up, and there was a nearby stream which was just big enough for him to jump into and follow Svarlsaeta to the meeting spot.

Breaking through the water one more time just as dramatically as before, she walked up onto the island, nearing Barnabas. As usual, he had brought with him more than just a dragon or two, which did annoy the others to an extent but not her so much. Sure, it did get a bit annoying if they were constantly talking to him, but other than that she didn't mind. She was now behind him, and made her way beside him. It was quite funny how they were along the same size, Barnabas being just somewhat bigger than her, something she still wasn't used to. But, she was now beside him, and just stood there, a bit akwardly. Kolilumo had arrived to her side, deciding that studying grass was apparently more interesting than the two giants before him. Not knowing really what to say, Svarlsaeta just looked around to see any of the other elders, careful as to not accidentally poke Barnabas with her tusks. She could see Rubidian and the Speed Stinger, and she could also make out the Great Death Elder... Gecko was it? No, Iguana was his name. She really needed to sort out all of the Elders names, she really didn't want to make any of them her enemies. The Fireworm Queen Elder was yet to be seen, but she could just be coming from the other side of the island. For now they just had to wait.

Barnabas the foreverwing

"But Dug's right. Sire, it might be a good time to stop throwing us out in the open every year and make us look like fools" The titan timberjack, or Titantim as Dug called him said

"how about if I just tell them I will go for another round, no one getting their face shattered this time"

" Eh eh, I doubt they'll let you" Dug chirped in "Especially since they're likely all going to be choosin' next elder this eclipse"

"They've been letting me for decades...!!"

"but that's just you and decades is more of a reason why they shouldn't this time, you aren't exactly a broadwing anymore"

"Wouldn't be better if you just well, step down like the others? Maybe it really is  your time" Titintim quip in, a tint of hopefulness in his voice

"I can go for another decade! Tell them, Svarlsaeta, tell them I can go for another round" Barnabas suddenly turned toward the bewildbest elder and ask for her imput kindly. It was a bizzare scene.  To see the tiny subject converse and interact with the Gigantic Elder this casual and childishly, the big dragon's appearently on the lossing side as well. Not to mention that the topic of the conversation might be consider relating to them overthrowing the foreverwing if  ignored the light tones of it. To top it all off, they asked for another elder's input about their little banter.

Svarlsæta~

Barnabas suddenly asked Svarlsaeta for her opinion on the matter. She had only been listening to their talking partly, so the question caught her a bit off guard. Looking over at the large Foreverwing, she pondered for a second what she was supposed to say. "Well, you have been around for quite some time, and it's possible that you maybe should step down, but you have been quite persistant I must say. You never really know until the day comes" she said, hesitating a tiny bit first, but then saying the rest causally. Kolilumo looked up from his grass investergating and looked at Svarlsaeta. "Gardener should start looking for a successor soon" Lumo said to his sibling. Koli nodded at the statement. "Yes, Gardener will still rule, but he needs to find someone worth of taking care of his little garden after he himself is the garden" Koli added, and then the two started talking in their own language. Svarlsaeta heard their little discussion, and turned her gaze over to him. She reckognized some of the words, like "Pakksreus", which meant company, and "Nöörhiv", wich meant green. From what she could pick up from their speech they were talking about the big forest growing on Barnabas' back. They really were a strange pair. Svarlsaeta looked back at Barnabas. "Well, I think you could still rule for a decade, but after that I really don't know".

Rubidian

She finally reached the island where Svarlsaeta and Barnabas had already settled themselves down, and took careful perch on a rocky spire next to the Bewilderbeast.

While most would think that the lava dragon would avoid the ice spitter, Rubidian had found that it was smarter to stay away from the highly flammable back of Barnabas.

She gave them a polite nod and left them to their conversation, eyes trained on the sun.

Sting Ray dashed onto land and flopped down. He had kind of panicked when the huge dragons started coming in and tried his best to avoid the more rapid waters. He didn't want to fall in, for he could not swim.

 

The Stinger flopped down on the land, exhausted. It wasn't long before he got up again and he looked up to the colossal dragons.

Barnabas the foreverwing

Barnabas smile widen, he seems pleased at the bewilderbeast somewhat relaxed response. "Good enough. See?" He turned to his seedling sweet death who's currently wheezing and laughing upon hearing the seashocker calling his alpha "Gardener" He really like that nickname "Gardener, They ain't wrong hahaha" He seems to gathered his compose a little then talk to Svarlsaeta "But with respect, your greatness, Old Barny's forssil at this point, watch him fell asleep during the meeting and forgot what's he been doin'. Maybe true he can go for another decades but best not encourage him--"

"Okay, okay, let settle down before we offense anyone else" The seedling rumblehorn decided to speak up. Ending the weird conversation.

"Will talk to you later, dear" Barnabas winked at Svarlsaeta again then settled down at his spot. His subjects done flying around and  settled politly on his back as well. I think she likes me Barnabas told his subjects through telepathy. That's old dragon charms alright, no one can resist it  Dug responsed knowingly. Appearently this was all a test for Svarlsaeta.

"Good to see you Rubidian. And you're as beautiful as ever, Lunarflare" Barnabas greeted the two female elders. He briefly looked at the Speed stinger curiously but said nothing, not recognizing who he is. He completely ignored Iguana.

Svarlsæta~

Barnabas winked to Svarlsaeta and then he settled down, his seedling dragons landing on his back. While there were quite a few thoughts going around her head, one was particularly standing out. "Just what is he trying to imply with the winking?". But, setting all of those thoughts aside, she noticed that everyone was here already. The Speed Stinger was resting on the ground, exhausted and looking up at the giants in front of him. Rubidian had settled down on a rocky spire next to her, and Lunarflare was lounging on a pile of boulders, the rock beneath her starting to glow from the heat radiating from her. Iguana was lying down on the ground, keeping an eye on everyone. And with that Svarlsaeta realized that everyone was here. She nodded back towards Rubidian, knowing she probably wasn't as keen in holding a conversation as she was in just acknowledging her or the others. She gave a nod to the Speed Stinger as well, not really sure what else to do. Next she turned her head to face Lunarflare. Like Barnabas, she felt more comfortable in her company than in the others, though not as much as with Barnabas. She was patient and had a very calm approach to situations, even though she was one of the yongest elders, if not the youngest (if you were to not count in the trial elder Speed Stinger). Only being the age of 140 years, she was pretty sure Lunarflare was the youngest elder, her being second. "Why thank you Barnabas, you don't seem to have changed much either from the last time we met" Lunarflare responded to Barnabas. "Can't say the exact same thing about you though, your scales seem to have gotten even brighter from our last meeting" Svarlsaeta cut in, looking at the bright multi-colored scales of the serpent dragon. She looked over towards her and did the dragon equvelent of a smile. "Well what is this! I'm getting compliments left and right!". Iguana dragged his gaze over to Lunarflare and looked at her with an unamused expression. "Correct me if I'm wrong, which I'm not, but I'm very sure that we're all here to discuss important news and matters, not to dish out unnecessary compliments that are sugar coated anyway" he said with his usual, uninterested tone. Lunarflare looked over towards Iguana before looking back towards Svarlsaeta. "Anyway, Iguana has a point. We're all here already. Should we get started?".

Rubidian

Right as Svarlsaeta finished speaking, the sky began to dim. The eclipse had started.

Rubidian cleared her throat, looking to the rest. "Yes, of course- I think we should start on how some of my warriors have been returning from expeditions with arrows in their hides, bearing the crest of no less than your Viking.... 'clan', Lunarflare?" she asked the Fireworm coldly.

She shrugged, unfazed by Rubidians accusation. "They still have caution around those who are not of my colony, yes"

They had a brief stare-off before someone else took over conversation.

Barnabas

" i don't know, Iguana, compliments are essential part for a good and healthy discussion, you should try some" Barnabas smiled at the great death. But soon the eclipse started and the two female elder steered the topic back to the actual meeting. They began to settled stuff betwenn themselves. Something Barnabas, with all eyes and ears he needs, of course aware off. Being the neutral party, Barnabas doesn't have a beef with anyone, though he not so sure if the others have one for him. They could have but for now as nothing intersting happen yet. barnabas obly have to fight the urge to fell asleep.

Svarlsæta~

The eclipse begun, and with that did the meeting begin as well. Right away Rubidian went straight to the point, and now Rubidian and Lunarflare were having a stare-off. Barnabas just watched silently, seemingly trying to fight falling asleep. Svarlsaeta listened to what the other two female Elders had to say before bringing up something herself, which just happened to have to do with Iguana. "So, Iguana, I've been getting word as of lately that your nest members have been crossing your territory's bounds into my territory, and that they've been causing disturbance among my subjects. Not only that, I've also heard that the warm currents going through your lands have gone unchecked, and are currently melting one of my bases as we speak. Would you mind explaining any of this?" Svarlsaeta said, first in a casual manner, but her tone quickly went cold as she stared at the Great Death. Iguana only looked back with a slight dissaproving gaze. "I won't deny that some of the things you've heard are true, but I feel like your messangers have oh so conveniantly left out the part where your subjects have been trespassing on my lands, fishing in my waters, and have in turn been causing disturbance to my subjects" he said coldly, sending a glare to the Bewilderbeast. Svarlsaeta only scowled. "And maybe they have been doing this because of your incompitance to keep the current as it should be, leaving my subjects in hunger. You know yourself that the waters around yours and mine territories aren't very favourable because of past damage done by your actions, and with the change of the current, there won't be nearly enough fish to feed a whole base with hungry dragons" she argued, as she tried her best to keep her composure. She and Iguana had never been on all that good of terms, possibly due to her distaste for his sometimes rude attitude, and the fact that his nest and one of her bases are so close to each other. But, either way they have agreed to having their subjects stay in their respective territories, and not cross the bounds unless it calls for it.

Iguana scowled back at Svarlsaeta, muttering something illedgible for her but she definitely got the message he was giving.

Svarlsæta, Lunarflare~

After a moment of staring at each other, Lunarflare turned her gaze over to the other two disputing giants. Not wanting to interrupt, she waited until they were staring at each other as well. She was about to say her opinion on the matter until she noticed a small speck on the beach. That little speck was the trial Speed Stinger Elder, looking up at the other Elders. Realizing that it was the young one's first time here, she cleared her throat to get everyone's attention. "I don't mean to interrupt any of your conversations, but I do believe that we should adress the fact that we have a new Elder among us this time, and they may not understand what it is that we do here. I am of course talking about the new Speed Stinger trial Elder, if you would be as kind as to give your name" she said, looking down at the little dragon. Svarlsaeta turned her gaze towards the Speed Stinger as well, putting her and Iguana's dispute to the side for now. Iguana looked at her in dissaproval, but consentrated his gaze on the newcomer as well.

The Stinger stood up quickly. "Uh.. my name is Sting Ray." he said, still staring at how huge everyone was.

As with most new elders, even

As with most new elders, even more traditional races, Sting Ray was looking rather overwhelmed by the gathering. Rubidian figured it would be easier for the youngster to start if he felt a bit more invited to conversation.

"So, Sting Ray. First business is always big business- where does your nest lie?" she asked.

The Eruptodon wasn't just asking literally, but politically as well- she needed to know how this dragon and his kin worked, where his nest- no, pack, standed among them.

(Oops.. I apologise)

Sting Ray pointed to the south. "Just a few hours run from here, an island with many deep tunnels, likely made by whispering deaths years ago." he said.

(might drop out of this rp, actually. :|)
