Thanksgiving. I like the part where everyone goes around the room and talks about what they are thankful for. Everyone always names the obvious... I am thankful for my family, for food, my new puppy, and so on...
I am thankful for these things, but you know what else I am thankful for? Dragons.
Without dragons, how else would I fill my free time? I mean, I guess we could easily conjure up another beast that is just as likeable and yet hateable all at once... but dragons fill this role so perfectly.
Yes, this is a vlog about dragons... how to tame one, to be specific.
I don't know about you, but I am annoyed at the lack of games that allow you to tame a dragon. Seriously.
The last good game I got to tame a dragon in was Ultima Online. Tamers were beast. Remember when you could summon 5 dragons? Yeah... I don't because I did play then, but I saw pictures!
I do remember when having a 525 Nightmare and a pureblood WW were optimal. You had to have a pureblood WW, else when you took them to farm Serpentine Dragon's they run the risk of losing happiness and becoming untamed.
I also had a dragon named Big Red. Him and I made frequent visits to Yew moongate in Fel to kill PKers.
Then I became a PKer... Well, things didn't change, we still made frequent visits.
Even the nightmares were part dragon. Summoning flamestrikes and flame bolting people left and right. Ah, good times... good times...
I guess what I am trying to say is, I really wish more games had a system like this. Taming in UO was a lot of fun, it was hard, and you could virtually tame, train, and fight anything. Remember training chickens to annoy people?

I am actually working on a new blog post as I type this, but it's taking me a little more time than I thought it would because I seem to be having a nice case of writer's block. That's always fun.
