Dragonriders RP - Open, Remake, Starting

Hiya, thank you to our lovely mod Sarah for letting me remake this! Click here to go to the original board.

 

Once, long ago, there was peace between dragons and humans. Despite the many differences between the two species, they lived in harmony with each other, and conflicts of any severity were rare. They established the dragonriders, the greatest bond possible between dragon and human, and through these partnerships communication was made much easier between the species.

And for a long time, there was peace.

Then came the Rupture. It began quite innocently in a simple disagreement between a human village and a dragon clan, of the sort that was not uncommon. But unlike most disagreements of this nature, it did not soon blow over, to be easily forgotten.

Instead, a group of hotheaded humans got together and ambushed a young dragon on its own. When news of their dreadful deed got out, the dragons retaliated, launching a fierce attack of their own on the villagers to avenge their clanmate. Faced with the terrifying prospect of a furious clan of dragons, the villagers enlisted the help of several other human villages in fighting off the dragons. In their turn, the dragon clan called in the assistance of other clans.

And soon a full-fledged war was in progress.

After many violent and bloody battles, the two species at last came to a sort of uneasy truce. The humans withdrew to the west, the dragons to the east, and each species slowly recuperated from the major losses each had suffered from the war.

Since that great war and the ultimate seperation of the two species that had so long lived in harmony with one another – known as the Rupture – the dragons and humans have maintained a marked animosity between them, and dragonriders have been outlawed, now become nothing but a distant legend which many doubt the truth of.

But, unknown to most of the two species, at the time of the Rupture, a small group of dragons and humans, mostly consisting of dragonrider duos and their closet friends and family, retreated to the Grey Mountains, a large and daunting mounting range where even the explores of either species rarely set foot and never went deep within.

This small band of outcasts braved the dangers of the Grey Mountains and, after many hardships, eventually built for themselves a small home in the heart of the mountains, which they found to be more slightly more habitable – although still relatively barren and inhospitable. And there, alone out of all the many places where the two species had once lived together in harmony and where one or the other still dwelt, dragons and humans lived in peace. But off from the rest of the world, they heard little news from outside, and no outsiders knew of the existence of the small community in the mountains, the one and only place where the tradition of the dragonriders was carried on.

So it has been for over a century. But now news of the inhabitants of the Grey Mountains has somehow leaked out. And the dragons and humans, among each of whom since the Rupture the mere mention of anything but enmity with the other species of considered the worst of taboo, are not having it.

No longer can the dragon riders and their community remain secret, cut off from the rest of the world. Now there are only two possibilities – the reuniting of the long-Ruptured species, or the complete and final elimination of dragonriders and the last hope of friendship and reconciliation between dragons and humans.


Dragons 

Contrary to popular belief, dragons are fully as sentient as humans, with as much depth and uniqueness in their personalities as any human. Varying in size when full-grown from about as big as a large pony to the size of a small elephant, all dragons hatch from eggs, fly, and are covered with scales, save two vulnerable and unprotected spots at their throat and belly. While dragons fight with teeth and claws, their main weapon is their breath. There are two kinds of dragons, flamedragons and frostdragons. While the two are clearly one species and frequently mate with one another, they are also distinctly different from each other. The hatchling of two dragons of the same kind will always be whichever kind its parents were, but if a flamedragon and a frostdragon mate and have hatchlings together, their offspring will be either frostdragon or flamedragon – not a combination of both – although in appearance they may share some of the features of the other parent.

Flamedragons are, in general, smaller and faster than frostdragons, although there are exceptions to this rule. There scales are usually varying shades of green, red, orange, or gold, and hot to other touch. The breath of a flamedragon is fire or, when they don’t choose to breath flame, smoke.

Most frostdragons are larger and stronger but not as fast as flamedragons, although this is not always the case. Their scales, ice-cold to the touch, tend to be paler, more pastel colors than those of flamedragons, often combinations of turquoise, blue, pure white, and silver. Frostdragons breathe a chilly fog, but can also make their breath lethally cold, freezing whatever they breath upon, when they choose to do so.


Dragonriders

The term “dragonrider”, while commonly but incorrectly used to describe the human in the partnership, actually refers to the dragon + rider pair.

It is unknown exactly how the bond between dragons and riders works, although it is almost always formed when both parties are quite young, often still hatchlings or toddlers. In general, after the meeting of a dragon and human, it soon becomes fairly obvious that they will become a dragonrider duo, often refusing to leave each other's side until dragged complaining away by their parents.

At some point, usually a few months after the first meeting of the young dragon and human, the bond of dragonriders takes effect. Because it is formed so young, few who are part of this unique relationship can remember exactly how it begins, but after awhile it becomes clear to any bystander that they are linked together.

A dragon and its rider can communicate telepathically unless they are at a great distance from each other. As dragons, despite often easily understanding the language of humans, cannot speak it due to physical limitations, dragonriders were for a long time the main means of communication between the two species until the Rupture, and still remain so among the small community in the Grey Mountains.

Along with their mental connection, the life forces of a dragon and human who are a dragonrider partnership together are joined. If one dies, the other will as well, and if one is injured the other suffers as well, although not quite as acutely.

Being An Activist

Hi Mentors, In school and by myself, I learn about a lot of bad things happening in the world (the environment crisis; food apartheid; wars; etc.). I want to do things on my own to help combat these issues, but I just don’t know how and then I don’t do anything. I know that I am in a place of privilege, and I want  my impact on the world to be a positive one. Do you have any ideas for how I can be more of an activist for issues I care about? - Anonymous  Hi there! This is an excellant question,…

Dealing With A Bad Influence

This is kinda complicated. I have this one friend who is like a TROUBLEMAKER. Like a major trouble maker. She also curses every five seconds But I really like her. I know she might be a bad influence on me, but she is SUPER nice and she’s the only person who lives near me. So basically if I stop hanging out with her, I don’t hang out with anyone. I’m just so confused. On one hand, she constantly curses (and I am only 10) and she is a huge troublemaker. And I don’t want to be like that. On the…
