    Love is in the Air!

     

    The season's have started to shift. Currents begin to fill the cold waters with warmth once again.

    Plant life begins to rouse from it's hibernation, sprouting in vibrant colours once more.

     

    Aqrion young and old begin to feel this change, frolicking like little pups.

    They begin to get giddy and flirty with this renewing warmth.

    Event ends Feb 28 at 11:59 pst




     

        Trials of Aquella Prompts:



     

    Prompt 1: Dancing under the Moon

    Sometimes you just need to dance with your mate under moonlight until your heart's content.  Woo a mate through a love dance!

     

    *Show your Dragon elaborately dancing with a partner under the moonlit sky.*




     

    Prompt 2: Show off

    Other ways of attracting a mate is by dressing up in beautifully adorned plants and flowers.  And then showing off!

     

    *Show your Dragon elaborately dressed in wild fauna (sea or land), shells, and other items, and strutting their stuff at another Aqrion.*




     

    Prompt 3: Race your Mate

    Sometimes, wooing mate's the old fashioned way is tricky and unrewarding.  Sometimes, it is best to simply chase your loved one for a while.  Playing small harmless pranks along the way.

     

    *Show your Dragon giggling and chasing each other through the newly grown fauna.*





     

    Prompt 4: Sparring

    Some dragons may not be looking for love, but the Spring season brings out the friskiness out of everyone.  Some dragons prefer to find a friend to spar with!  Some sparr to get the attention of a mate.  Others spar because sparring is fun!

     

    *Show your Dragon sparring with a partner.*





     

    Disability Training Prompts:

     

    Your dragon must learn to master his disability before they are ready for the world. Here, Mochi the old Pygmy Singer, is here to help you hone your skills.

    Mochi helps the disabled dragons learn to make connections with other disabled dragons. She also helps to build communities to be more accepting of others and educate other healthy dragons about living with disabilities and how to normalize them.

     

    All Disability Training types may be earned!  One prompt per disability.

     

     

    Prompt A: Wreaths with Mochi

    Today, Mochi is teaching the community group how to make flower wreaths. These are very tricky to make, but make an awesome gift once completed.

     

    *Show your Dragon making a flower wreath with Mochi or another disabled dragon*


     

    Prompt B: Lua Love Cards

    Perhaps flower wreaths are not your thing, but everyone enjoys getting a Love card.  Mochi helps the group make little Love cards to pass around to all of your friends.  They are often filled with little hearts, shells, and bit’s of glitter.

     

    *Show your Dragon making a Love cards with Mochi or another disabled dragon*





     

    Rewards:

    Rewards are repeatable!
    Rewards are earned per each dragon you own in each entry.

    A glowing reef in varying hues of red, pink or blue!

    It's quite a sight to behold!

    Dragons from around the world will often travel to this glowing reef to watch the glowing reef.

    Here they gather with friends and share stories from over the winter season, before moving onto the true summer activities.

    ____________________________________________________________________

     

     

    March/April 2022:

     

    Hello and Welcome!

    This month’s Prompt will run for March and April!  Yay!

     

    Your dragon spots a pod of unknown dragons.  They resemble a mix of orcas and leopard seals.  They outnumber you, and look like they could be dangerous.  So you decide it’s best to not interact directly with them.  Perhaps you follow them at a safe distance.  Studying them and as to what they are.

    After some time, you hear some strained clicking noises behind you.  You turn around, startled and confused.  To your surprise, there was a tiny calf in front of you.  He looks to be the same species as the dragons you’ve been following.   He seems too young to speak, and perhaps even too frail.  You aren’t sure why this guy has fallen behind and no one has noticed him.  He definitely looks to be too young for traveling, perhaps he lost his mother?  You gently grab his flipper and attempt to catch up to the pod.  Surely they know more about this situation.

     

    - Depict your dragon trying to catch up to and/or communicate with the pod, with the tiny calf in tow. - 

     

    Rewards:

    x500 Pearls

    x1 Silver Toothed Singer Egg

     

    ____________________________________________________________________

     

     

    January 2022:

     

    A new year begins! 

    Full of hope and wonder, every dragon making new years resolutions.

    Do you make a new year's resolution?  Is it one you can manage to stick to?  We all try so hard don't we.

    After the end of year feasts and naps, one wants to start fresh!  Even though it's still dark and cold during the winter months, dragons will wake up and bustle around on this day.

    Dragons love traditions!  Sopmetimes they make new traditions, but most often, they will follow some old traditions.

    One of the traditions on the New Year is to hold a Lantern Festival!

    Every year dragons build little lanterns and decorate them with all sorts of colours and patterns!

    They fill them with glowing beads and with a little puff of hot air, they send them floating upwards.

    Some launch them on the water surface, and some launch them fromt he depths of the abyssal plains.  
    Both are fantastic sights to behold!

     

     

    Depict your dragon building, decorating or launching a festive lit lantern along other dragons and their lanterns.  -

     

    Rewards:

    x500 Pearls

    x1 Tiny Glowhorse

    Leasing your character to a Player

    What is Leasing?

    Leasing is the permission you give to other players that allows them to draw your character to claim rewards for the submission they created.
    The leasing will only be in effect for the specified amount of time that the owner allowed to lease the dragon to a specific person.

    The Dragon owner will get the SP created, and the Leaser will get all the rewards that they have created.
     

    For example, if someone doesn't have their own character yet, but they want to participate in the current MC/Event to get the rewards, you could lease them your dragon to claim the prices instead of you.
    Don't be alarmed, you are still able to draw your character, claim their rewards from your own submission, like you normally would :3
    The Submissions that were made with the dragon you leased is redeemable for SP <3

    - You can only claim Event/MC rewards once, even if you draw your own dragon and use a leasing dragon at the same time!

     

    Please include this permalink in the queue's so we can confirm that you are indeed leasing the dragon.

     

    Fill out this form and reply here:

     

    Leasing: (import link)
    To: whom you are leasing to.
    Duration of Lease: (ex: Jan 1th, 2021)
