I know there's only one item, but I'm working on it. Please don't add anything right now, but if you have any concerns or suggestions, feel free to post them below. Thanks! --Calibri (talk) 17:12, 11 July 2017 (MDT)

And yes, I will add worlddrakes in the future. Be patient. --Calibri (talk) 17:24, 11 July 2017 (MDT)

Or, you could just make dragons and give them a special tag or make a new category of drakes or something. AngelicBahamut (talk) 18:22, 11 July 2017 (MDT)

A: I would, but one big thing I wanted to include is that drakes are similar to dragons, but not the same. That's why I made drakes a completely different category from dragons: I wanted to make them something completely new. Also, I'm going to return most of the firedrake page to how it was before. I'd prefer it if you asked before you edited it. Just remember: there's a method to my madness. (Just for the record, though, I like what you did with the shoot fire attack; I'll keep some of those revisions. I will reduce the damage and the CR, because this is intended to be an easier drake.) --Calibri (talk) 10:28, 12 July 2017 (MDT)

By the way, "firedrake" and every other drake name are each one word. Please don't change that. --Calibri (talk) 13:44, 12 July 2017 (MDT)

How do you forsee this new type interacting with the rest of the game? Can't they just be Monstrosities? Marasmusine (talk) 15:22, 13 July 2017 (MDT)

A: No. --Calibri (talk) 15:40, 13 July 2017 (MDT)

A wyvern is similar to a dragon because it has the dragon type. A dragon turtle is similar to a dragon because it has the dragon type. If a drake is similar to a dragon, why doesn't it have the dragon type? SirSprinkles (talk) 16:08, 13 July 2017 (MDT)

How about magic weapons that deal bonus damage to dragons, such as the dragon slayer? Would they deal bonus damage to drakes? SirSprinkles (talk) 16:10, 13 July 2017 (MDT)
A: No. --Calibri (talk) 16:26, 13 July 2017 (MDT)

Enough of this! If you have a problem with my stuff, post it here or on my talk page! But please stop just editing these without my permission! If something's wrong, I'll fix it, but in my own way, and at my own time! Stop editing my stuff by yourselves! I've been working on the whole Drake thing for weeks, and I've had it meticulously planned out! So please, whine, complain, or scream about what I'm doing wrong, but stop trying to fix it yourselves! Angry Face Angry Face Sad Face! --Calibri (talk) 19:08, 13 July 2017 (MDT)

This is a wiki. You need to be prepared for other people editing the pages you create. At the bottom of every edit box, including the one I am currently typing this message into, there is a message that says "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here." If you truly do not want anyone else to edit "your" page, you can move it into your userspace, where other users are not allowed to edit (or at least, to do so would be considered extremely rude), except for administrators to remove content that breaks sitewide rules. — Geodude671 (talk | contribs)‎ . . 19:43, 13 July 2017 (MDT)
We can give you some time to work on the pages. But ultimately if you don't want anyone editing your contributions at all, you're better off publishing them on your own blog. Make that decision now, because everything you put on this wiki is under a copyleft license. Marasmusine (talk) 08:49, 14 July 2017 (MDT)


I am reprinting the removed text here: designers notes are OK on the talk page, and I don't want Calibri to feel he's under attack. Marasmusine (talk) 13:25, 14 July 2017 (MDT)

  • The term "alchedrake" is an amalgamation of the words "alchemy" and "drake."
    • This is because of alchemy's relation with the four basic elements: fire, water, earth, and air.
    • It is also a reference to Little Alchemy, an online game where you use fire, water, earth, and air to create nearly everything.
  • There are a number of references to the game UNDERTALE[1].
    • The terms "lesser" and "greater" in the colddrake category relate to that of Greater and Lesser Dog, two dogs that act as sentries in Snowdin's Canine Unit, a small military unit composed entirely of dogs. Additionally, the term "greater" is a reference to Greatest Dog, who is not a canon UNDERTALE character but is a fan-built character to help explain the existence of one of the Amalgamates, known as Endogeny.
    • Icedrake and Chilldrake are two brothers in UNDERTALE, the latter only appearing if you kill the former.
      • Ironically, in UNDERTALE Chilldrake is treated as being stronger than Icedrake due to his spawn conditions. In the case of the colddrakes, an icedrake is considerably more powerful than a chilldrake.
      • Also, one original idea was to have the chilldrake as a completely separate drake. It was to be an April Fools joke, as it was also intended to wear sunglasses at all times, and could only appear when an icedrake had been killed. It was scrapped and later replaced with the pundrake.
    • The pundrake deals some necrotic damage, making it a reference to Sans, one of UNDERTALE's font skeletons. Sans enjoys telling jokes, and his race is frequently referred to as a "skeleton."
  • The majority of drakes are Huge. Despite this, many of their hit points are calculated with d20s instead of the standard d12s.
    • A similar anomaly is noticed with the builtdrakes, as their hit points are calculated with d4s instead of a Huge creature's d12s.
    • The reason for this is explanatory, as it is easier to calculate the drake's subrace probability with only two dice. In a d12 situation, three dice would be required in most cases to generate the proper amount of health.
  • The plan for the worlddrake is for it to be a Colossal monster. However, it is possible that d4s or even d3s may be used to calculate its hit points as a small joke.
  • It is believed that psydrakes and speeddrakes are to be Medium or Large monsters. However, they are also intended to be among the most powerful.
  • Firedrakes are the only "real" drakes in mythology. All the others are purely the creation of Calibri.
  • Despite their names, the necrodrakes and helldrakes are not undead.
