HOLY MOLEY, THANKSGIVING IS OVER

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.

Also, lightsabers.

Ah, the good old days :)  I too used to have a GM Tamer (among others) on Catskills and remember the pure joy and excitement when I tamed my first pure WW and long-maned, black Nightmare.  Loved the article! :)

I never really got into taming on UO as i was busy pillaging and looting an stealing, but i was always wary of the people with tamed chickens because you knew they had 5 dragons up there perverbial sleeve hehe.

I hope you have tried Skyrim(who hasn't lol), the dragons in that game are awesome.

The reason I played this game was for taming dragons :) Taming in SWG was my thing as well.

No thanks,i prefer to see Dragons as the bad guy we kill in our games.

One of my worst experiences in gaming was playing Horizons and seeing 90% of the people were playing a Dragon.So if they allowed Dragon taming,it would turn the game into a joke.Every single person in the game would have a dragon,it would look as ridiculous as Horizons did.

If you have writers block then look into ArcheAge,it is the one game i actually feel is going to offer a little something for everyone.
