Weekly Poll--#2

This week's poll is about points and items! What do you all think about prices? Are they generally too high? Too low? Or do you think it's just the Forgery Tools and Between Rescue items that should be cut down a bit. (Because it really could take forever to gather that many points, especially if you have a limited number of dragons!) Gimme some feedback.

Poll #1396767 Points and Prices

Should the prices of items be changed?

No, they're exactly right as they are.
3(33.3%)
Yes, they're a little too high.
2(22.2%)
Yeah--make 'em higher!
0(0.0%)
Just change the price of the last two items.
1(11.1%)
I'm undecided...
2(22.2%)
Keep the prices...but up the points we win in threadfall!
1(11.1%)

Mating Round 11--CLOSED

Varahath is accepting only bronze chasers this round!

Rules: 

1. Only adult dragons can rise and chase, obviously. :)
2. Only one dragon can rise at a time; she cannot mate twice in a row. (Unless there's no other available golds.)
3. Only gold dragons can rise to mate. Bronzes and browns can chase them. Bronzes SHOULD be a lot more likely to catch the queen than browns, but...
4. The owner of the female chooses who catches her dragon, so she has the final say. The owner can also have a say in how many eggs are in the clutch, but has no control over who the hatchlings Impress.
4. Gold-Bronze matings can produce any color, Gold-Brown matings cannot produce queen eggs and have fewer bronzes, but more browns.
5. Golds participate in Threadfall, but are a little less likely to die, since little Thread gets through to them. Greens are assumed to chew firestone and fight Thread directly, which prevents them from mating to clutch.

Clutching Round 10--CLOSED

Make sure you check out the mating round and poll below.

New to Pern? Go here.
First time at Whiterock? Get an overview of how it works.


Parents: Gold Oketh, ridden by Cerine & Bronze Steydroth, ridden by S'den
There are 16 eggs, no gold egg

1. The quiz can help your chances of getting the color you want, but the final result is still a matter of chance. Please don't whine or ask to redo it if you get something other than you wanted.
2. You may send up to two candidates to a single clutch, but there's no limit for your total number of dragons. Please complete a new form for each candidate. (Different Name/Gender/Quiz thing for each candidate. I don't mind if they're both on the same post).
3. There's no limit to the total number of candidates accepted for a clutch, so if it ends up more candidates than eggs, your character may not Impress. Better luck next time.
4. Any candidates who don't Impress would have to be submitted again to the next clutch, but there's no limit to how many times they can stand.
5. In general, girls Impress gold and green, boys Impress blue, brown, and bronze. Male-female and female-male pairings are rare but possible, depending on availability of suitable candidates and the dragons' own quirky personalities. :P Sexuality doesn't enter into it.
6. You are allowed to name your dragons after they impress, but they must end in -th like all all Pernese dragons.
7. Dragons are not considered adults until a full cycle has been completed and the next clutch has hatched.
8. The only information I need for your candidate is name, gender and quiz answers. Dragons come with their color and a personality trait or quirk. You need never develop the characters beyond this, but embellish them however you want. There may be a roleplay area if anyone's interested.
--If you're going to use Shard's Candidate Generator, would you mind expanding on your answer a bit when you have one of the alternate responses? It gets a bit difficult to judge with what basically amounts to a blank answer.
