Flight Rising Registration Window!

Post by UristMcBunny on Thu Oct 09, 2014 9:47 pm

So my favourite dragon-based superior Neopets replacement/addiction will be having another brief registration window on the 13th October.  It'll only last 24 hours, but it'll happen.  If anyone joins up, come find UristMcD and I'll gift you some food and maybe a baby dragon or two to welcome you!

Also... if you do decide to join up, would you be kind enough to put in UristMcD as the person who referred you?  I get gems in return for signing people up!

Can you tell us a little about how it works, what you like about it, etc.? Anything with dragons sounds vaguely interesting to me, but I don't know anything about this particular game. Smile

I can!

So.  Flight Rising.  Simplest terms, it's a dragon breeding game.  There are a bunch of different species, and an ever-growing number of genes that dictate how their colouring is presented on them.  You can change the genes and species of your dragons to change their appearance, and "wild" dragons - your first pair and any hatched from eggs you find in the wild - have no special genes applied to their colouring.  Here's some of mine, for example:









You breed them, swap and sell the hatchlings, and you also exalt them, which is a major part of the game.  Basically, the game universe is set on a planet where different dragon flights are fighting for supremacy between themselves and against the beast clans - you level individual dragons up at the Coliseum, training them for battle, and then you exalt them.  The dragon goes off to join your flight's deity to fight the others, and is gone from your clan forever.  You earn treasure according to what level the dragon was at when exalted, so it's a good way to make money if no one is interested in buying your hatchlings.  Dominance is determined by which clan exalted the most dragons (and higher level dragons count for more), and the top three clans each week earn bonuses every day of the following week.

11 out of 12 months of the year, there's a flight holiday during the last week of the month -  special shop opens up selling limited edition clothes and familiars that can only be bought with holiday currency (which you find by gathering or fighting in the coliseum), the site runs a design competition where artists submit themed skins and accents, with the winners being available for sale for that one week only, and in lots of flights, individual members team up to run competitions and games for everyone to enjoy.

There's also clothing, accents and skins you can overlay onto your dragons, familiars (pets) they can keep, gathering for food and materials and treasure, and a small fairground of games (that is still being developed). There is a detailed and ever-growing lore about the world and the creatures in it, which a lot of people use as inspiration for writing the characters of their dragons. There's also a huge queer community, and fandom community.

The main draw though is the community.  Roleplaying is very popular and, in addition to the subforum set up specifically for that, lots of people do roleplay by PM, in the notes about individual dragons, in other forum threads and in holiday games.  For example, in July during the Lightning Flight's holiday week, some forum members set up a huge roleplay game themed around their flight, with prizes they donated themselves, and I participated in it.  There are organised dominance pushes, where people team up to try to win dominance, and generally the whole place is just very close-nit, friendly and fun.

It's only been going for about... 18 months?  And there's  lot of things still being developed and improved on, but it's a lovely community, a great place for artists, writers, roleplayers and people with collecting addictions, and it's just generally very cute.

Such a welcoming community. On Bunny's suggestion, I checked out the forums for my Flight, and people are doing masses of welcome-giveaway-raffle threads. I'd definitely suggest anyone starting to play head that way.
