    The commendable cast of ‘sea dragon herders’ has fallen into a steady routine of feeding the mythical beasts once per day. The sea dragons have been on a steady diet of both deep and regular sea serpents. About a week’s time has passed since the methods on feeding had been mastered by the folks of Legends. Little has changed since the feedings began. All the recovered scales from both the Mythical Sea Dragons and the Bal’ Thrans have been accounted for and are in safe hands. [​IMG]
    This evening we had not fed the dragons due to some other activities and happenings. It was late in the evening when a few of the followers of Legends had gathered to feed the dragons that some odd occurrences began to take place.
    It appears that Arius McNuge and I had been the only witnesses to the first of these two strange events. We had just finished slaying a regular sea serpent for the dragons to feast upon when an explosion of epic proportions, which appeared to have originated from one of the sea dragons, captured our attention. It was a massive explosion that made a big bang noise and spread several yards covering a large area. The explosion was bright blue in color, much like the color of the sea dragon’s scales. However, it did not seem to cause any harm to myself, Arius or the sea dragons.
    I have seen two large explosions in the past that resemble this one. The color was quite similar to the cloud of debris given off from a successful cast of the Armageddon spell. The size and appearance of the blast was identical to the type of blast seen coming from the Bal’ Thran, only this one did not do any damage. We can only assume that the blast was a result of the feeding but it is unknown at this time.

    At nearly the same time of the blast another occurrence took place. Luxon Artisan had discovered that Armondo Pascal’s dog Franchesco was on the loose again and wandering the town of Jhelom. Several of Legends finest had gathered to identify the pup and track him as we suspected he may lead us to another clue. Unfortunately he just continued to wonder about and was last seen inside the Jhelom Armory.

    We suspect that these two events are related but are not for certain. For now we must continue to feed the dragons regularly in hopes that soon there will be a young Mythical Sea Dragon amongst us. It has also been advised that the citizens of Legends keep a close eye on Franchesco, as we know he can pick up a trail and point his nose and us towards more clues involving the Mythical Sea Dragons. I encourage all to investigate further and submit any data recorded to the EM mail box.

    After a meeting and some discussion on the Sea Dragons we again interrogated the captive pirates. We were informed that the explosion or cloud may have been a sign that the Sea Dragons finally gave birth. A Sea Dragon infant was described as being very small and shy. We did some investigating and were able to fish the infant Sea Dragon to the surface. It appears that the infant only stays at the waters surface for small amounts of time and needs to be fished up with a pole. We again returned to the pirates and received instructions on how to feed and care for the infant. It's important that the infant be fished to the surface before feeding. These instructions can be found at the location of the captive pirates at Jhelom Farms. I encourage those who have not studied these instructions to seek them out.

    After some more feeding sessions with the Infant Sea Dragon we have discussed and organized a new plan. After several attacks on players by the infant during the feedings it's apparent that the little one is not happy about something. During the discussion the possibility arose that the river is to small of an area to allow the infant to grow. So we have decided to allow it to roam out of the river into a carefully organized containment area. There are many ships involved in the containment and it is a rather complicated process moving food into the area. We are hoping that the infant will be less aggresive towards its feeders now that it has more space to move about. With some more hard work and a little luck we now hope to see the infant mature.

    Another large cloud or explosion has transformed the infant into a adolescent sea dragon. This will require a new feeding source. Instead of dolphins the adolescent prefers kraken.
    Please visit Nujelm to see the adolescent for yourself.
