Revisiting DragCave

Do you guys remember DragCave? It was really popular many years back on LJ. You collect tiny virtual dragon eggs and raise them into various dragons.

I've decided to revisit the game. I hadn't logged in in so long that all of my dragons had lost their names. I had some good ones too, and now I had to fudge with adding things like “Original”, “the First”, or hyphenating names. I'm kicking myself for losing some of the good ones. Especially my Firefly, Princess Bride, and Grateful Dead themes (although I did bring a lot of those under the Ridiculous lineage). I took the last two days and went through and renamed most of my dragons. The ones I'd written descriptions for, anyway, that said their names and the ones whose lineages showed what kind of names they needed (Dorkface, Ridiculous, Thuwed, Mudita, etc.).

So I'm trying it out again. And I'll log in often enough (how often?) that I don't lose all my names again. If you want to help, you can help keep my eggs alive by clicking on them. They need clicks and views to live.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Here's my whole scroll if you're interested. I'm happy to breed for people too if you see anything you like. You can separate your dragons into groups now, so I've made a group (highlighted at the top of my scroll) that has all of my dragons whom I've written personalized descriptions for. I used to use them as writing exercises. Some of them are pretty good, if I do say so myself. I might try that again since I haven't been able to write in a while.

Anyway, check it out if it interests you. Thanks for any views or clicks you give!

I think I was most active (and saw most LJ activity) around 2008-2010, so it's been a long time! They're more like virtual pets. You 'steal' eggs from the dragcave, and then you have to 'feed' them clicks and views to get them to hatch. I got into making different lineages and things like that.

I was a member of dragcave too. As well as Valentths? I think.

I don't know what Valentths is. Dragcave is a bit different than I remember it though. I'm trying to re-learn everything.
