Now that we have gotten the majority of pre-planned Dragons out of the way, Aiden has begun to start implementing the different Dragons that have been chosen from the coloring contests. The first of which is going to be Corroside, the Tropical Terror by @Jaslyn. There have been a few changes from the initial concept mostly in just refinement of the pattern and some adjustment to where colors are or how colors shift on the Dragon. Like all exclusive Dragons Corroside, the Tropical Terror...
Here is the latest Dragon that Aiden has been working on: Zuo Ran, the Lover's String, the last of the two new Oriental Dragons. A pink noodle has been a request we've had or seen for years, so we figured we'd try to get one done for Valentine's day. This has all same texture modifications as Yan Yu. This Dragon borrows the concept of the Red Thread of Fate from Chinese/Japanese lore. Players who have Zuo Ran will receive the title "Fated Love". This Dragon will also come with the Adept...
Here is the latest Dragon that Aiden has been working on: Yan Yu, the Cosmic Emperor, the first of two new Oriental Dragons. The idea was to do a texture similar to Galactic Storm (who now needs an update) and to refine and re-do a lot of the muddy texture quality on the existing noodles. Some of the changes made to the texture is new scale pattern for the face to fix the previously muddy quality, removal of furs except along the back, and adjustment to the eyes so that you do not have the...
Here is the newest Dragon that will be coming to Dragon's Prophet: Samael, the Hellforged. This was originally meant to be a Halloween themed Dragon based off of Eseriel Frostshadow... But like always Aiden got a bit carried away. Samael will have separate title for male and female characters like other new Dragons we've been doing lately, with the titles being "Hellforged Incubus" and "Hellforged Succubus". It fit the theme and the Dragon, so we're sort of re-using a modified title from...
We are going to aim for releasing the source code update for the end of August, or early September. Hopefully there will not be an unforeseen changes needed or delays, but currently we are on track for our original schedule. The scope of the update has not changed, but I will be included it here so that people can see what is currently planned: We are also hoping to offer at least French, German and Russian translated strings by the time we release the update. Because the Dragons...
Here is the latest Dragon that Aiden has been working on: Atropus, the Baleful Shadow, a happy little accident of science Aiden made while showing Sovi techniques with textures. He takes inspiration from several different varieties of deadly nightshade. Players who have Atropus will have either the title "Master of Shadow" or "Mistress of Shadow", depending on the gender of your character. Atropus will also scale with either Ferocity, Focus or Dragon Affinity once I make a final decision...
As always it's been a significant period of time since the last development update, but hey, at least this time I will have some solid progress to share with players. Recently our developer Dragon has managed to resolve the rubber-banding issue with our updated code base, so players will actually be able to play and not stand like statues... Unless they're holding eggs but that's their own poor life decision. This means that since shortly after the closure of Dragon's Prophet Europe and...
Here is the latest Dragon that Aiden has been working on: Alstromera, the Summer Queen, the first of three seasonal Sylvaran-variants. She represents summer, and the main inspiration was Lily of the Incas/Peruvian Lilies (Also known as Alstroemeria, which is also where we got the name with some modification). Players who have Alstromera will have either the title "Queen of Summer" or "King of Summer", depending on the gender of your character. If you are interested in getting early...
It has been three years since we first launched the Dragon's Prophet server, and a lot has changed (at least behind the scenes). As with the last years update, the biggest change has been the data tool and how far we have gotten with it. We are now able to start adding actual data and the like to the game, as well as find some of the issues that the server suffered (looking at you 102 quests). While we have mostly stuck to smaller things such as adding new dragons and utilitarian items, we...
Here is the latest Dragon that Aiden has created for us; she wanted to create a Duskreaver that wasn't a dark, neutral or boring. The Dragon itself takes heavy inspiration from Sea Slugs and also Poison Dart Frogs, which is where she got the ideas for the colors and also the pattern used. Currently this Duskreaver has no name or title, and we are hoping to get a few suggestions from the community. You can also suggest a compendium if you like, or some details for the compendium which we can...
