This idea is inspired by the legacy challenges found for the game The Sims. In brief, it is a 10 generation breeding challenge where the aim is to go from an ungened starter to an attractive triple-gened dragon. There are rules and limitations in place to make that more of a challenge.
This challenge also has a board on the FR forums.
- Obtain an unhatched egg (or buy an unbred first gen dragon)
- Hatch it - this dragon is your founder
- Find a mate for this dragon
- The mate must be the same flight as your founder (doesn’t matter if not the same flight you’re in)
- You cannot pay more than 10,000t for this dragon
- This dragon must not have bred before
- When they’re ready, breed them
- When the eggs hatch, the first egg that hatches is the heir
- You can keep, exalt or sell the founder & mate and any other hatchlings; whatever you do, they are now excluded from the challenge
- You must now find a mate for your heir
- This mate must be the same flight as the founder was
- You cannot pay more than 20,000t for them
- When they’re ready, breed them
- The rules for each subsequent generation are the same
- The mate treasure cap rises by 10,000 each generation (e.g. 3rd gen = 30, 4th gen = 40k)
- The first hatchling to be born for this generation is your final dragon
- If you’ve been keeping score, tally your total and see how you did compared to others doing the challenge
- No scrolling: no breed change, no scatter, no gening, no removing genes, no maturity scrolls
- Renaming scrolls are an exception to this rule
- You cannot use dragons you’ve won, been given, or bred from another pair as a mate for one of your heirs, you must purchase them
- Points for hatchlings can only be counted for the clutch the heir was in - you can’t breed your first pair again and count their offspring as points towards your legacy score (though of course you can breed them as much as you want outside of the challenge)
SCORING - money
- 2 points for every 10k under budget you came when buying mates for your heirs (round prices up)
- Example: in your 5th generation with a limit of 50k you only spent 18k - round up to 20k, leaving you 30k under budget = 6 points
- Advanced optional scoring: 2 points for every 10k made from selling/exalting legacy dragons (old founder/mates or non-heir hatchlings)
SCORING - hatchlings
- 1 point for a plentiful breed (tundra, guardian, mirror, fae)
- 2 points for commons (pearlcatcher, ridgeback, snapper, spiral)
- 3 points for uncommons (skydancer)
- 4 points for limited (imperial)
- 5 points for rare (wildclaw, coatl)
- 1 point if 5 egg nest
- 3 point per treasure gene
- 5 points per gem gene (circuit, iridescent, shimmer)
- 3 points for double colours (xxy, xyx, yxx)
- 5 points for triple colours (xxx)
- heir multiplier: your heir scores double
- example: a basic/seraph (3)/basic snapper (2) would score 5 - doubled to 10 if it was your heir dragon
- You can set yourself extra goals: e.g. to get a xxy or a triple in 10 generations, to get a specific colour or colour combo in 10 generations
- You can play without scoring if you like
- Uglacy variant: your goal is to breed a supremely ‘ugly’ dragon in 10 generations
- Breed restricted variant: all the dragons you use are the same breed
- You can theme your legacy for extra fun, e.g. a naming scheme
- Perhaps have a piece of apparel that gets passed from heir to heir
- If you’re into RPing, get to it!

texting someone new is always weird.
like how do they feel about all lowercase letters? do they think it looks dumb? do i have to use super proper grammar and punctuation? will they know im being sarcastic when i start abbreviating words? are they a haha or lol person? are they a strict no acronyms kind of person? how do they feel about pet names? what’s their stance on emojis?
whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
