On this page, information will be stored on newly-released dragons that have incomplete data. Information can be compiled here so that it can be retrieved at a later stage to be separated into its rightful articles.
RULES OF NEW DRAGON RELEASES
All newly released dragon information is to be compiled on this article and this article only.
- Add the dragon(s) to the Which Egg Is Which page.
- Add the dragon(s) to the Dragon Types page.
- Add the dragon(s) to any page apart from this one.
- Create the dragon(s) article (before the dragons of TJ09 or users grow up).
- Add information if it has not been seen in the cave yet.
- Add the spriter's alt(s) against the artists will. (The DC-Wiki team will ask for their permission)
- Add the spriter's alt(s) till they're adults.
- Add the spriter's alt(s) to the Spriter's Alt page.
These rules apply while the dragon is being released, till the moment when the dragons of users start to become adults. After that the dragons article can be created.
Failing to comply with these rules will result in a warning or even a suspension (one week suspension for creating the dragons article before the dragons have grown up).
The DC-Wiki Team
- Remember, adding information not yet seen in the cave is NOT allowed. We know you know it, we know half of it as well. But please, don't add it until it has been found in the cave.
- If you add interesting information from speculations made on the forums, please be sure to mark this information with Rumour unless it is absolutely a proven fact. See the current facts/rumors under each breed for examples.
Information marked Fact has been so widely proven that may be accepted as true. Information marked Rumor is rumor. Currently, there is no way to prove this information true or false, and though much of it seems like it will be true, do not accept it as true information. This especially means that you should not present this information to people in the forums as hard fact.
- Holiday Release
If one of the holiday artists keeps their scroll hidden, respect that fact! The DC-Wiki team will contact and ask them if they would be willing to share the images of their spriter's alt. Don't post links to the spriter's alt, because it might result in them getting sick.
Currently Being Released
Late-November Release (November 30th)"This release may be late, but at least it's not late."
Before the release, there was much drama about when it was actually going to happen. TJ had said "The November release will occur in mid- to late-November to give ample time for dragons to grow up after the Halloween event," which sparked many users to keep their scrolls open for over two weeks, and feelings boiled over when there were no new eggs dropped on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, which many players assumed would be the release date.
|Description||"This dull purple egg has two bright stripes on it."||"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It already has a pair of wings, but it can’t fly very well with them."||"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It already has a pair of wings, but it can’t fly very well with them.|
And look! It’s gotten bigger and has grown a second pair of wings, making it able to fly better than any hatchling you’ve ever seen."
|"Nhiostrife wyverns are one of the few known breeds of wyvern with more than one set of wings. Because of their four wings, Nhiostrifes are very nimble in the air and have complete control their own movements with ease. When it’s mating season, males put up a very beautiful and unique air dance in an attempt to charm a female. The amount of stripes on their wings vary, with more stripes being more attractive, although most have only two to four. Their general attitude is very passive and curious—they only fight if they themselves or their family are in danger."|

- Catchable in the Alpine Biome.
- When sorted by "Breed" they are listed as "Twister" and therefor sort between Turpentine and Ultraviolet Dragons on a users scroll.
- TJ's hatchlings have the codes Pzl9G and 7PCcm
- They do not have dimorphism.
Name: Nhiostrife Wyvern (a spin on “Neon/Neo Striped Wyvern”)
The original breed name was going to be Twister, but after the recent events in the Philippines, I decided to change the name. The sort name is still Twister though—that’s why it shows up where it does alphabetically on a person’s scroll. So either name is cool to call 'em!
Or, you know, Flutterbutts!
Personality: Nhiostrifes are passive and curious; they only fight when they absolutely have to. There have been a number of incidents in which farmers would go into their barns only to be greeted by a Nhiostrife all curled and cramped up where the other animals (such as cows or pigs) are, not having a care in the world. Because of their curiosity they tend to cause problems innocently, such as knocking through walls or eating something they probably shouldn’t (which will end up happening far too often throughout their lifetime). If they get in a bad mood, they can get very nasty, but once they’re not angry they feel bad about their behavior and do their best to make it up to whomever they may have upset or hurt.
Size: It varies between male and female. Males are generally larger than females. Females range between four to six feet in body length (not including tail), have a body height of five to seven feet, a wingspan of twelve to thirteen feet, and a buttwing span of six to nine feet. Males range between five to eight feet in body length (not including tail), have a body height of six to nine feet, a wingspan of thirteen to fifteen feet, and a buttwing span of eight to eleven feet.
For both genders, the tail easily adds another five to seven feet onto their body length.
Habitat: Most live strictly in areas with open air (mountaintops, open fields, etc) so they don't run into things when flying. Occasionally those with better eyesight will travel out of those general areas.
Weapons: Since they lack upper arms, their back legs are very strong. One kick or swipe of a foot can easily break through tough brick walls. They also have the ability to breathe an incredibly hot blue fire, but they generally don’t use it much.
Mating: Females don’t really have to do a thing when it comes to finding a mate—it’s all up to the males. A male Nhiostrife will put up a beautiful air display that is completely unique from all others in an attempt to charm a female. If a female is charmed by the male, they will become mates for life.
More stripes → more attractive. Most Nhiostrifes only have between 2 and 4 stripes, though. Very rarely is there a Nhiostrife with completely blue wings, but if there is one, he would have the pick of nearly any female in the vicinity.
Diet/Hunting: Nhiostrifes are omnivorous. When they eat meat, they usually hunt for sheep, deer, goat, and the like. They do have a strange love for potatoes, and an owner could probably make the wyvern do some pretty amusing things for one. They also like to eat berries and oranges.
Because of their general nearsightedness, Nhiostrifes have a great sense of hearing and smell. Even if they can’t see their prey when flying, they can hear or smell them and determine where they are before swooping in and catching their meal.
Anatomy/Etc: Muscular legs with big feet. Their nails curl similar to a bird of prey’s.
They are nearsighted and have two sets of wings—one near their shoulders and the other near their back legs. As a hatchling, they only have one set of wings, making it impossible for them to fly because they cannot balance themselves in the air. If an adult Nhiostrife loses the ability to use its hind wings, it will lose the ability to fly forever unless the wings heal. This main need for a second set of wings comes from the Nhiostrife’s eyesight and a less-than-stellar sense of depth when flying. With this added set of wings, they're able to keep themselves completely stable in the air and make quick turns that may take other dragons more time to do. Being able to make sudden turns and twists helps counteract their nearsightedness.
