Legend of the Evolution Dragon
"Tonight we dawn our armour, sharpen our blades, and dust of our spell books. This Dragon has been terrorizing this kingdom for long enough!" - screams the king on his throne. His audience of warriors cheered. "No longer will we live in fear, no longer will we starve. For you, the strongest and fiercest warriors, will take up arms and rid this land of the foul Guardian Dragon!"
"Quit writing boy! You heard the king, gather my things" "Yes sir."
We marched up the mountain. The air was still, the night was quiet. The men knew most of them wouldn't return. As we neared the top there was a massive explosion. A fireball rose from the path ahead of us, the sky itself seemed to be on fire. It has begun. I handed my father his sword and I hid.
Already there were bodies strewn about. All I could hear was the screams of men and the chanting of spells. They fought valiantly. It was a bloody battle, but in the end the mighty dragon fell. I raced out to find my father.
"Father! Where are you father?" "Cough, Son"
His voice was feint. He was struggling to call to me. Finally I found him behind the dragon, clinging to life.
"Son. You are safe. Take care of your mother."
He passed soon after. He had delivered the deathblow to the beast. But his wounds were mortal. In His clutches he held an egg. It was a soft white glowing egg. It was warm, it began to shake. It was hatching! Out of the egg slithered a snake. I was afraid, but it clung to my leg, huddling for warmth.
"Kill it!" "Yes Kill it, we will end this beast's line once and for all." "No! Look at it, it's harmless. I will raise it. I will keep it" "But this will grow into a beast as foul as the one we have slain tonight."
A voice speaks up from the back of the small crowd of survivors, "But what if we could command such a beast! The boy will keep it."
It began killing rodents on the farm for us. But as time went on it grew bigger. The more it killed, the bigger it grew. No beast ever threatened our kingdom again. We traveled the land in search of foes worthy of my might "Evolution Dragon." We vanquished many evils, and found many treasures. But most of all, this friendship lasted a lifetime.
Evolution Dragon Info
These special dragons start as an egg and as they gain experience/kill points through combat, they will grow into the next stage of development. They gain stats, powers, and a new body style at each stage and eventually evolve into a mighty Evolution Dragon.
These dragons only take up 3 slots. They may seem weaker in the beginning but they will evolve into a powerful beast with the Stygian Dragon body type.
You can use the command [dkp to check your kill points
Currently the egg drops on the Stygian Dragon as a rare loot drop or you can obtain it by completing the Ancient Dragon Quest and collecting the 6 dragon skulls. This will also be available for donation for a limited time.
Make sure you save up the ability points and only spend on the LAST stage for maximum effect. Make sure you feed them often and do not leave afk as they do go wild very easily.
