Basic (Baby) Dragon Care

Dragonets are born able to fly and speaking like adults. But just because they sound like adults doesn't mean they are. They have zero life experience, so don't let them talk you into too much. It is your job to teach them and care for them. Welcome to a crash course in dragon parenthood.

  • You must cut up the meat for you baby dragon to eat. Meat and knives will be provided in the barracks. It will be gross, and it will stink; you will be told to get over it if you feel like complaining. There will be ICC if you choose not to.
  • Dragons and firelizards defecate ::between::. Unfortunately for you, your dragon is too young to fly (much less ::between::), so you are responsible for mucking your dragon's couch and surrounding area. It will be gross, and it will stink; you will be told to get over it if you feel like complaining. There will be ICC if you choose not to.
  • Weyrlings grow fast. This is hard on the skin, which if not oiled properly becomes cracked. Cracked skin is bad, painful, and - once they start betweening - can be dangerous. So this is a good opportunity to get to know where your dragon's spots are so that you can keep an eye on them. You are responsible for keeping your dragon's skin well oiled, and if a crack should appear, make sure you inform the weyrling staff immediately.
  • Constipation is another big worry until the dragonet gets a solid grasp on this whole "eating" thing. Make sure you don't overfeed your dragon, or let your dragon steal too much food from others. The tell-tale sign is a thickening of the tail. If you feed them too much, or take your eyes off of them for too long, it will be your responsibility to purge them of the excess. It will be gross. It will stink. And you will be told to suck it up if you complain.
