Name

The "Name" page.

Naming is an action available to all species in any stage besides eggs and Leetle Trees, as they're considered frozen eggs. This same function can also be used to rename a dragon or creature (or to remove its name entirely) and can be found on the dragon or creature's Actions page.

If the user puts a name in the field, a small X will appear beside the box if the name is invalid in some way, while a valid name will have a ✓ beside it. To remove a dragon or creature's name, simply submit a blank name. Releasing a dragon will result in its name being removed before it enters the Wilderness.

Users can name their dragons whatever they want, as long as the name is within certain character parameters and follows DC's rule on appropriate names. A name that breaks this rule may result in the death of the dragon. Other consequences, such as loss of the naming ability, may also be put into play if the infraction is serious enough. Those unsure whether or not a potential name is appropriate can inquire in the Name Check Thread on the forum.

Naming RulesEdit

  • No 2 dragons or creatures can have the same name (change in capitalization makes no difference).
  • Only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and apostrophes are allowed in a name.
  • Using spaces or punctuation at the beginning or end of a name won't be accepted.
  • There is a 32-character limit for names.

Naming MessagesEdit

If a name is already taken, the following message will appear when using the action:

"You try to write the name, but the ink disappears as you write, so you decide to try something else."

If using invalid characters, the following message will appear when using the action:

"You try to write the name, but some characters disappear as you write, so you decide to try something else."

If going over the 32 character limit, the following message will appear when using the action:

"You realize there's not enough room to fit that name, so you decide to try something else."

If successfully able to name or rename, the following message will appear when using the action:

"You write the name next to your dragon's picture in the scroll."

If the user successfully removes the dragon or creature's name, the following message will appear when using the action:

"You cross out <NAME>'s name on your scroll."
