Hatching?[edit]

Seems that the version 0.40.05 "allows egg-laying critters without baby/child state to have viable eggs". Does it means that we can now breed dragons? --UristMcOmelette --UristMcOmelette (talk) (Signed; use ~~~~ to sign posts)

Yes it should, however they will "spawn" as adult dragons that have to grow similar to how the year 1 dragons spawn. Editing to reflect. --Fundeath712 --Fundeath712 (talk) (Signed; use ~~~~ to sign posts)

About the image[edit]

The image may be misleading as Dwarf Fortress dragons are wingless. -- DarklingArcher (talk) 12:17, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Agreed. I don't know the wiki's policy on uploading fanart, but I've not found any good wingless dragon pictures on Wikimedia to replace it, so I just left it imageless for now. OluapPlayer (talk) 13:38, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
What about this? https://sitejerk.com/images/green-dragon-png-10.png - Zippy (talk) 13:45, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
This one is definitely a Chinese dragon, and DF dragons are based on the European dragon, except they're wingless. They would look roughly like that. -- DarklingArcher (talk) 15:55, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Sorry! I missed this discussion in recent changes; I didn't realize there had been so many changes today, so I assumed the image was old. My take on the matter: a lot of creature pages, like Cat, have images, and not all of those are necessarily 100% accurate depictions of the creatures in-game. Perhaps this one could be moved down, although not many creature pages are this long, so there's not really a clear precedent set for where in the article it should go, as far as I can tell. —Lethosor (talk) 20:39, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Will this one work? https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/83aaab8d-26e9-4462-9a20-5abbb768bc0e/d83a4e2-9be34f58-9baa-462f-8f81-e0e62f6048b8.png/v1/fill/w_1034,h_773,q_70,strp/wingless_dragon_by_olivitree_d83a4e2-pre.jpg?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOjdlMGQxODg5ODIyNjQzNzNhNWYwZDQxNWVhMGQyNmUwIiwiaXNzIjoidXJuOmFwcDo3ZTBkMTg4OTgyMjY0MzczYTVmMGQ0MTVlYTBkMjZlMCIsIm9iaiI6W1t7ImhlaWdodCI6Ijw9MTA4MCIsInBhdGgiOiJcL2ZcLzgzYWFhYjhkLTI2ZTktNDQ2Mi05YTIwLTVhYmJiNzY4YmMwZVwvZDgzYTRlMi05YmUzNGY1OC05YmFhLTQ2MmYtOGY4MS1lMGU2MmY2MDQ4YjgucG5nIiwid2lkdGgiOiI8PTE0NDQifV1dLCJhdWQiOlsidXJuOnNlcnZpY2U6aW1hZ2Uub3BlcmF0aW9ucyJdfQ.7zYAwMO5SF4F-Nj_SrxGWX1wnr7hQcgvUM87GhGBzsU Sorry for the massive-sized link. - Zippy (talk) 05:17, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
