Welcome to Dragons of the Elements, a fantasy roleplay site. First established in December 2007, the site has since been relocated twice. Take flight as a powerful Elemental dragon, one of their Creations; or even their human or elven Rider! If you need anything feel free to contact a member of staff. Besides that, make yourself at home, and enjoy your time here at DotE!
Dates formatted as: Day/Month 11/02:February Activity Check. 07/08: The island's residents don't know of it yet, but they will soon enough! Introducing The Caverns of Infinite Night. 16/05: We farewell Pine, our dedicated staff member of over five years, and wish her luck in her future endeavours. 23/01: Character spotlight added to the sidebar! Up first is Shydra- prophet of the Dragon Mother, Vaseera.
(outdated until further notice)
Sons & Daughters
Criss, son of the Water and Fire Elementals, is an angry and conflicted young dragon with a buried heart of gold. While many dragons are most at home in the sea or the sky, Criss prefers to keep his feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you so very much. But if he could only embrace his Water heritage, he would find that he can breathe underwater just as well as he can breathe air!
Blue means friendly/approving. Red means hostile/disapproving. Pink denotes present mates (you can check out the family tree (click) for more info on those relations, including the Lesser Elementals). Grey means neutral-ish.
If there's no line between two characters, it's probably because I just have no idea haha. But feel free to ask anyway if there's something you're unclear on and I'll try to work it out!
An arrow denotes that the relation is directional, one character feels it towards the other but not vice-versa.
A normal line indicates that the relationship is known and your character could plausibly know about it, a dotted line indicates shifting relations and/or those which they probably won't know about. Except for with the Riders, where I just used solid lines for alllll, because I doubt many dragons even care who they are- let alone about their relations. xD
If I got something wrong or added something you'd rather keep hidden for now; apologies and please let me know ASAP so I can fix it up. I will tag Andromedia and any others who are interested with updates. =)
EDIT: "They've always been allies" refers to Icky and Tiv, apologies for vagueness.
Lmfao, I love this Sam. Icky/Tiv need a custom rainbow brotp line I mean obvi they're just hella gay for each other. I find it interesting that Fazoola has more pseudo-enemies marked down than pseudo-allies lo l. To clarify with Karma/Desmond, I think that my re-write for her was still very relevant in that thread tbh even if I hadn't/still haven't finished it. Desmond will probably never be able to get friendly/buddy buddy with her, but her own feelings for him are lOL complex.
I probably need to add a neutral line between Tiv and Faz, whoops. Or one direction blue, one grey, as Tiv really has no issues with her and finds her attitudes admirable. But you're right, haha! To be honest I was only going off what had been clearly established in rp threads. :-P
Haha of course, Tiv just calls Icky his brother to throw them all off the scent! It all makes sense now! And like any good soap opera, this will all eventually resolve itself and they'll fly off into the sunset holding hands.
Oh yeah, I totally get that. I have no idea how some of them will get along with each other. I don't even think I've ever done a thread with Faz before. *waggles eyebrows & winks at 27th*
CANON: IF U PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EVERY TIME TIV AND ICKY SAY BROTHER YOU CAN PICK UP ON THE INCEST VIBE UNDERLYING IT. CANON: TIV IS ONLY YSERA'S MATE RN BECAUSE HE'S CONFUSED ABOUT HIS LATENT HOMOSEXUAL FEELINGS THAT HE HAS FOR HIS BROTHER WHEN MOTHER HAD RAISED HIM TO BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN BOY. CANON: ICKY ONLY HATES YSERA BCUZ ICKY IS ACTUALLY CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND MANIFESTED INTO DRAGON FORM. *mic drop*
Well the chart was helpful, but now ya'll are confusing me again XD I was thinking about that the other day - cause technically two male Elementals could create a son/daughter right? Because they don't really have genders.
And Tiv and Icky are...brothers? Aren't they all related in a way?
I guess I should phrase it as um...they've chosen/settled upon (not sure if it was voluntary, we haven't established that) these forms a long time ago. So no, two male Elementals can't produce a Son or Daughter- because they fill the 'male' reproductive role rather than the 'female' one.
There do exist Creations of more than one element! Creating such dragons is effectively banned right now (not that that would stop Viamor, for example), but all that really involves is pooling elemental energies into a single Creation. And in this way, two male Elementals could reproduce! The Creation of Many Elements is an extreme example of this, at my estimation it contains about five types of elemental energy.
(Pine does that sound about right I'm kinda making things up and extrapolating as I go along).
They're pure Elemental energy, so I guess they are sort of related. But in general, they don't think of it that way. =P Tivialous calls Icky 'brother' because of the close connection they've forged over the centuries. They're close like brothers, or whatever.
*laughs* Sorry about that, I couldn't help myself from at least a moderate amount of shitposting here to celebrate my return ofc.
I'm the local ruler of starting conversations about uncomfortable topics for the sake of establishing a sense of realism here. I don't remember WHERE this discussion took place, but I know that AT LEAST I talked about this with Sam. I'll give the slight .1% more explicit/blunt explanation of it from what I remember.
Yeah, I think what Sam said is essentially what we decided on. Basically at their core the Elementals are sexless because they're the manifestation of elemental energy into dragon form, but upon taking that form they also pick their respective, desired sex (thus genitalia/reproductive organs form with that) and they're stuck with that. So in that sense, I believe they're capable of two kinds of intercourse - one which is the physical sort which is exactly what you think, in which case you could have a Son/Daughter, or like Sam said, Creating between two or more. I feel like that might be a small detailed and kind of a matter of opinion between each Elemental whether they TRULY consider that to be a type of intercourse and could regard the activity as various levels of intimacy. ( WHICH EITHER MEANS THAT VIAMOR DOESN'T THINK MUCH OF IT OR HE'S A GIANT MAN WHORE. B) )
So yeah, I'm basically just rewording all that Sam has already said lmao. Icky and Tiv have a long history of like ALWAYS being allied with each other during wars and there's also probably some degree of them being sappy and being like "WE MAY BE OPPOSITES BUT WE'RE TWINS AT HEART :'(" or some shit like that because Icky is an idiot. I was just joking about them being gay and all as far as I know *STARES HARD AT ICKY. Sorry, I actually have quite a bit plotted out with Icarus (and Karma) which I think I have yet to really sit down and write in any comprehensible fashion aside from Sam's inbox lmfao.
(WHICH EITHER MEANS THAT VIAMOR DOESN'T THINK MUCH OF IT OR HE'S A GIANT MAN WHORE. B) )
I must admit that I read that and had to just stare for a while. I had never even considered it as anything like that. While I suppose it makes some sense I don't think that would at all be about one of the few Elementals that does not have a Son or Daughter (at least not that I know of... Unless you count the Creation of Many Elements but I don't think that counts.)
Others are free to have their opinions of his odd views and approaches, just don't let him hear anyone calling him that I suppose, heh.
Rashan "Are you real? And are you fun?" Shydra "Vaseera shall have mercy on us all, even my worst enemies." Viamor "This world will freeze."
Pretty sure almost all of the relationships with Astraeus would be grey or blue. Unless they hate him. At this point in time, he is incapable of hating anybody xD
He da best! If this was a soap opera (which, let's face it, it kinda is!), Astraeus would be that one guy who everyone is always super glad to see on screen because his scenes provide a welcome relief from the general relationship/friendship/life crisis-y angst of such things. =P
Samantha: And Paradox was amazing Dae! I enjoyed writing Adutaine opposite them. =)

Samantha: I get that Blazeh, no worries. <3 The site is pretty dead, it was just me and 27th and we couldn't keep it going on our own.
Apr 23, 2018 12:00:45 GMT
DaeSiggil: Oops, I know I haven't often helped by disappearing as I did. But still thinking about this place! <3
Apr 18, 2018 16:11:08 GMT
Verridith: Hey hon, love you guys but haven't seen anything happen since 2017 ;A; hope all are well! But have to remove you from BTACD's sister sites. I'm sorry! </3 </3 </3
Apr 6, 2018 12:22:38 GMT
Samantha: Exactly! It can be tricky, back home most of my friends are just from school, university or work. xD And it was lovely. They were all so lovely, the ones I was with spent the whole time talking about history, it was fun and edumacational.
Sept 30, 2017 10:02:29 GMT
27th: Wow! You got to have dinner with the authors? Making new friends is always nice. I know that struggle as I don't socialize like my peers.
Sept 12, 2017 18:00:11 GMT
Samantha: that great at doing haha (I don't like going out to parties and stuff, which seems to be the main way people my age socialise.)
Sept 11, 2017 23:11:00 GMT
Samantha: -looks at timestamp on last reply- Eeeek, apologies for the delay! But yeah it was AMAZING. My favourite author signed my favourite book, and we even had dinner with the authors one of the nights. Plus, I made some new friends, which I don't tend to be
Sept 11, 2017 23:10:37 GMT
27th: That sounds very cool! I would have loved going to something like that.
Aug 20, 2017 21:03:22 GMT
Samantha: It just means 'science fiction and fantasy.' So it was a conference for authors of these things, and scholars who study them!
Aug 19, 2017 21:10:27 GMT
27th: Glad you had a good time in Sweden! What is SFF?
Aug 11, 2017 16:08:48 GMT
Samantha: Sorry for the disappearance. I was in Sweden for an SFF conference- it was pretty cool!
Aug 11, 2017 10:48:27 GMT
Samantha: It's sad, yeah. We need more members to have more staff, we need more staff to keep the place active, and we need to have the place active to get more members. Sort of a vicious cycle. =P
Jul 31, 2017 16:46:13 GMT
Samantha: The problem is that the main person who likes to run contests, Riv, also has a tendency to disappear. xD And I don't have the time and the energy to run this place proper on my own.
Jul 31, 2017 16:45:38 GMT
27th: Yes, it is a lot of work. Though, I agree it could be worth the effort. As far as contests go, we've tried them here at DotE before. I don't know how well any of them worked but we it couldn't hurt to try.
Jul 30, 2017 5:53:42 GMT
R: Could try a contest?
Jul 29, 2017 4:40:04 GMT
shadow: Well. Yea. That also is a lot of work. It would be worth it though
Jul 28, 2017 4:12:51 GMT
27th: Well, recruitment would be key to that. Contacting the members we already have to try and get them to participate here would also be part of that.
Jul 26, 2017 15:52:29 GMT
shadow: I wonder what would happen if we tried to make it alive again
