Greetings to all.

As you may have guessed by my unfamiliar name and the peculiar placement of this topic in the "Introduce yourselves" section, i am a newbie. I have yet to decide the exact details of what i intend to RP as, although i do have a somewhat vague idea already.
Also, I started reading some of the topics to get a feel for the site, but i failed to notice any of those hairless apes whose princesses dragons like to kidnap so much. Is this because i was not thorough enough in my search, or are the only two intelligent species in this world dragons and the reptilians?

However, before anything else, i have some.... technical difficulties with the site. Namely, the chatbox. You see, I am most often online for these browsing purposes from my phone, and the site automatically opens the mobile version, which is just unbearably... barren? simplistic?. This would normally be little problem, as i can just click the button on the top right, and switch to desktop view. However, this most vital of buttons, is unfortunately obstructed by the chatbox opening tab, which happens to be in the exact same place, and thus i am unable to access the aforementioned button. As such, i am forced to use debugging tools to force a desktop view, however this is a rather lengthy process that has to be repeated every time i reopen the site, which is beyond irritating.
Might there be a solution to this issue?

Welcome here ! I am Hyruu, moderator on the forums.
Humans are already present in this world, but we actually try not to mess with them too much. The only time we saw them, they kicked the whole Earthwing tribe off their territory. A site lore update is on its way which will make humans more present on the site, but trust me you'll have other preoccupations than kidnapping a princess... and the first one might be running away from humans.

And for the mobile site, well yeah is sucks. I'll never know why most mobile sites are so unpractical compared to their desktop counterparts. No option to jump on the last post, no option to see last threads, and a light layout while the main site is dark can cause a few problems when people use color. White on light grey isn't exactly easy to read. And indeed, the mobile chat box is a joke since once you open it you can't even close it, the buttons being off the screen. Sadly I know no fix for that, my button to switch to desktop mode is just handily in a menu that is available in one click so I never had your issue.

If you haven't done it yet, here is the New Members Guide : http://www.rpgdragons.org/t1723-new-members-guide
That could give you a few ideas about what you want to do and the tribe you want to join (or if you want to become a rogue). Hope to see you rping around !

The reason the mobile site is so simplistic is most likely to allow weaker devices and connections full access to everything, even if at the cost of convenience.
And yeah, i only have the site-provided switch-to-desktop-view thing, which, again, is always covered by the chatbox tab. Actually, i don't even know why the chatbox appears in mobile mode.... never seen that before.
As.... disrespectful as such a request from someone who just arrived may be, would disabling it for a few minutes at some point in some down-time be possible until i click the button and permanently switch to desktop view? (or just moving it to the left side for the same length of time?)

I think the reason why that chatbox appears even on mobile mode is because it seems to be a plugin. However it surprises me those plugins are also shown in mobile mode. I kind of grew used to ignore it, but it's right that it's just annoying. However I don't have access to this kind of stuff, I'll ask Ark about that once he connects. I don't even see why someone would want that box in mobile mode anyway.

Funny thing, i decided to go with an earthwing character in the end for whatever reason... minus the wing... (details supposedly in the "for evaluation" batch of the character creation section)
Salutations, my liege!

Size is not all that matters! Endurance, for example is also important... We're still talking about dragons, yes?

As for the question, i do have one: according to what i read in your lore, the avarage dragon can live up to 3000 years. Then why is it that Baldirak is fourty something iirc from his lore and is considered old? Wouldnt that be like a 1.5 year old human complaining about his aging joints?
I feel like i overshot the age of Torghaith with that 20 years

The decision on the dragon lifespan arrived after a few phases, and things haven't really been really normalized between those phases. Baldi is I guess 44 of those pesky dragon years we removed not so long ago (and that weren't making any sense to a lot of us), and that makes 1320 years (as 1 dragon years equaled 30 human years). So yeah some ages might need a correction.

So what age(in human years) would be considered a young adult then?
And when did i qualify to be a guardian?



Also, i finally managed to resolve the chatbox tab issue. yay

Cool to hear you managed to deal with the pesky chatbox !

After a discussion on the topic, most of us agreed that the growth of a dragon shouldn't be mapped from the growth of a human being. As such dragons reach their maturity at around 20-25 years old, but they still continue to grow in size steadily until some time later. Their growth then slows down until their reach their final size at around 1000 years old, and they would start to get really old at 2000 years.

We usually consider dragons above 20 years would have already passed their initiation for the role they want, but feel free to request some training.

Excuse me?! Training?! Preposterous! Ill let you know that i am a freeloader extraordinaire as it is! I require no training, and none could provide knowledge on the subject that i do not already possess!
