Dragonflight

anonymous asked:

Hey krunchy <3 I recently got an idea for a character, her name is Illysudra Lakesong and she's a member of the Green Dragonflight, and the lover to Ysera (this is where the elitists will get mad at me). However, the thing that is different about her is that she was originally a blood elf whose druidic powers stayed even after the Sunwell had transformed her people. She was recognized by Ysera and transformed into a dragon. She still keeps her belf form. She also has cute horns in her belf form.

A very interesting concept! Considering the aspects seem to have multiple consorts and lovers, Illysudra being one isn’t really that big of a stretch. I think where people might be mad / curious is the transformation from blood elf to dragon! I believe the Twilight’s Hammer clan were turning their members into dragons (or at least dragon hybrids) so the potential definitely IS there. I wish you luck on your unique and rad concept!

I ordered up and individually painted some Gamescience Dice for my Dragonflight table. A certified precision d20 for each of the players and a full ruby set for the MVP (as voted by the group). Finding that my old paint pen was kaput, I set out and bought a new DecoColor Extra Fine point and a nail file.

Because precision dice are not unnecessarily refined, they maintain their crisp edges. With the sides so even, the result is a roll that aims to be more random. A byproduct of dice production is the presence of sprue marks, which I dealt with using the nail file. Because they are not painted in mass, precision dice require manual number painting, a process I like unto meditation. 

There is something very rewarding about putting care into the preparation and presentation of one’s dice.

The Dragon Aspects are leaders of five dragonflights; the titans empowered the five dragons, each with specific powers, to lead the major dragonflights and watch over Azeroth…

-Alexstrasza, the Life-Binder: Aspect of the red dragonflight and the guardian of all life in the world of Azeroth.

-Ysera, the Dreamer: Aspect of the green dragonflight, charged with the protection of the Emerald Dream and watches over the growing wilds of Azeroth.

-Nozdormu, the Timeless One: Aspect of the bronze dragonflight, he is tasked with ensuring that the flow of time occurs without interruption, and that events happen as they are fated.

-Kalecgos, the Spell-Weaver: Aspect of the remaining blue dragonflight and the guardian of magic and hidden arcanum.

-Neltharion, the Earth-Warder: Aspect of the black dragonflight, empowered with dominion over the earth and the deep places of Azeroth.

DRACONIC AESTHETICS ( 2 / 13 ): BLUE DRAGONFLIGHT

Determined to forestall a catastrophe, the blue aspect decreed that the world’s unbridled magic must be reined in by any means necessary. Determined to manipulate all existing magic to serve his own purposes, he now seeks to divert Azeroth’s ley lines to his own home, the Nexus by the use of giant constructs known as Surge needles. Malygos’ actions however carry disastrous consequences, splintering the world’s crust and opening unstable rifts in the twisting nether. If successful, his tampering could result in an ecological and magical catastrophe that would threaten not only the stability of Northrend, but ultimately the equilibrium of the entire world. The red dragonflight and the Kirin Tor now fight against Malygos in this Nexus War. […] The other flights have formed the Wyrmrest Accord, and fight back to defend the temple against their misguided brethren.

It’s getting there. A few more details on the shirt and chest armor, then the costume for Chromie is done. Then I move on to props. Then I finish my bf’s and make my day 2 costume. I feel a bit better about my progress seeing these pieces all together. I also have the skirt and belt done. I know that even if I end up not having a prop for some reason I have a complete outfit that I’m very proud of. It took forever since it’s my very first cosplay and I had to learn to work with foam and try to improve my sewing skills. One month to go!

DRACONIC AESTHETICS ( 3 / 13 ): GREEN DRAGONFLIGHT

Alexstrasza had planted a colossal tree within the new Well of Eternity that would come to be known as Nordrassil. Both Ysera and Nozdormu placed their blessings upon it. Ysera bound the tree to her realm, the Emerald Dream, along with the night elven men, now the druids of their race. As part of the pact, the druids agreed to sleep for centuries at a time so that their spirits could roam the infinite paths of the Emerald Dream alongside the green flight. Though the druids were grieved at the prospect of losing so many years of their lives to hibernation, they selflessly agreed to uphold their bargain with Ysera. The greens, with the druids’ help, maintained their posts through the long millennia that followed.

Just incase anyone wanted to see some more pictures from the Dragon Flight 4D / Spot Toothless tour going on for How to Train your Dragon 2…

Not really sure what the deal is with the game, but if it was something you could play longer than the taste they gave today, I’d be all for it. (add a fan & some mist spray to make riding the dragon seem all the more real and you’ve got yourself a deal!) An almost fully immersive flight simulator/ video game where you are Hiccup, guiding Toothless through the sky/ through various obstacles. Pretty cool.

You could take a picture with the cardboard cutout (and hold Toothless’ leash) play the game and/or take a pic with the family at their photo booth (not pictured due to image blur, blah, yet not as blah as the way my photo booth picture came out. Ew.)

Also, the guy in the cool Stoick shirt, apparently his name is Greg. HI Greg! (or is it Craig?) if you want me to take your picture down, just let me know. Thanks for helping with the booth/game today! (same goes for all the workers, thanks for being so patient and kind :)

Of Wizards and Robots: More Worlds like Titansgrave

We’re just as eager for news about more Titansgrave as you might be, so in the meantime we’ve been in search of stories that share some of its flavor and feel! One of the coolest things about the world of Titansgrave is the way it combines tropes from both the science fiction and fantasy genres. Of course, this combination has been explored for decades—in books and movies and games alike. If you’re looking for more stories where magic and technology meet, here are a few fun examples.

DRACONIC AESTHETICS ( 4 / 13 ): BRONZE DRAGONFLIGHT

A millennia ago the bronze flight was approached by the night elves to assist in defeating the Qiraji during the War of the Shifting Sands. The bronze flight initially refused but reconsidered when the insectoids attacked the fabled Caverns of Time, home of Nozdormu and the bronze dragons. The bronzes joined the fight but when the combined power of the kaldorei and the bronze flight was still not enough to push back the Silithid and their Qirajimasters, Anachronos, heir of Nozdormu, called upon the other flights for assistance. Finally they managed to seal the insectoids away in their city of Ahn'Qiraj behind the Scarab Wall.
