This is a very open-ended world, and is more or less a fantasy version of the Earth we all know. Draco Stryx are used as dragon mounts for people all over the world, from all kinds of cultures and countries, and all kinds of geographic origin. The time period is also loose, but is primarily based in a Viking/Celtic/Medieval type of setting, where people are wearing leather, furs, feathers, and are fashioning metal armor and weapons. However, you don't need to feel limited by this! You're encouraged to play in whatever way you like best, regardless of time period or other factors. So if the official premise isn't to your liking, no worries! Do whatever's the most fun for you!
The name of the game is to have fun, and interact with your fellow players through art and writing challenges, as well as roleplay.
Here are some journals you should read, to get yourself familiar with this species and the world they live in! Or, alternatively, just head over to the Crossroads, to find all the information available!

Now you'll need to get yourself a Draco Stryx. Check the Advertisements section to see if anyone is selling hatchlings, and be sure to +Watch DracoStryx so that you'll be updated when official deals are posted! You can usually purchase a Draco Stryx either with DA points, through Paypal, art payments, or through random chance raffles, or you can pick one up for free from the Adoption Center. No matter what your situation, you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a Stryx to call your very own!
Once you have your Stryx, you can start participating in TRAINING & TRIBUTES so that your dragon will become fit to breed, as well as to take part in the other activities in the group, such as the Arena!
The Path to AscensionThis is the ultimate goal of training and competing with your dragon, to Ascend, and obtain access to exclusive activities, bonuses, and extra breeding slots. To Ascend is to have your destiny fully realized as a dragon or dragon rider, and to become a legend among your peers. Any Stryx that achieves Ascension will share in that status, and will be able to pass on a supreme legacy to its offspring, far better than before.
