Flight Rising: Imperial Dragons by neondragon Flight Rising: Imperial Dragons by neondragon
These critters are from Flight Rising, a browser-based game where players lead a clan of elemental dragons to supremacy. You can breed, raise, battle, adventure, and watch your clan grow!

We're running a kickstarter*** to raise the funds for the first year's worth of server costs on a dedicated server. Thanks to the amazing outpouring of support from our beta testers and followers, we were able to make our goal and are pleased to say that Flight Rising will be opening to the general public and launching in just a few months time! Thank you so much! We could not have done this without you.

The Kickstarter will be running until April 9th if anyone would like the chance to support the project and nab some of our backer rewards. We're inching our way to some reasonably spiffy stretch goals, and are so excited to present them to you at launch! There's just three days left if you'd like to acquire some FR Kickstarter Swag





***Kickstarter for Newbies: Kickstarter is a fundraising platform where creators can pitch projects and receive pledges from those interested in their creation. Kickstarters are either successful or they are not, reducing the risk to the backer of backing a project that does not meet its goal. If the project reaches its goal, all the backers have their pledges go through. If the project does not meet its goal, no one is charged and the project does not go through. Kickstarter has been a boon to the independent gaming and arts community, allowing projects that small teams would not otherwise be able to produce receive crowdfunding to bring their vision to life.

so this is where it all began! i'm a huge fan of FR, and imperial females are probably my favorites. (though i'm liking nocturnes a lot now, too!) anyways, thanks for creating such an awesome game! it's really brought me and my friends closer together.

These are so cute! Gosh I wish I hadn't missed the kickstarter for them. My OC is a lung much like these guys and gosh I wish I could have one in game. Will there be any way to get them later? It IS kickstarter exclusive and it would cheapen that if there was some other way to get them now...

Oh well, the lung enthusiast can dream.

Just wondering. Will these dragons be available again in the near to far future? Not as in getting one via breeder but as in "Donate X amount, win a Imperial egg!" Ect. :P I totally missed out ha-ha! These dragons are epic. Sad, sad.

another way to get an Imperial besides waiting on reservation lists is to save up for a Breed Change: Imperial scroll and use it on a dragon you already have, if that helps,

there is no way to get an imperial breed change scroll unless you buy one from another player... which will probably never happen

Really lovely. I love the pose of the red one the most, very reminiscent of oriental Dragons... and the pup Dragon is cuteness itself <3

Except for having wings, they remind me very much (too much for it being a coincidence?) of the Shimmerscale dragons on DragonCave. Which also makes me wonder, would a custom skin based on the colours and pattern of a DragonCave species be accepted into the game (since while I might have painted the skin itself, the design would be heavily based on another artist's work)? Like bronze/gold/silver shimmerskin skins for these, or dayglory/nightglory skins for the fae dragons?

Olooriel Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
Oh that sounds as if I'm implying that you copied the design there, I didn't mean to, they are obviously both based on ancient chinese dragons, so obviously they'd be similar. I'm mainly wondering how original custom skin colours would have to be, or if a kind of "fan art" skin (of another game) would be allowed.

:iconkingaiju:
KINGAIJU Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013
I think as long as they stay within the custom skin guidelines they'll be allowed,

Love these guys. My favorite so far, though i love all your designs. I do have a question. I bought the Bestiary pack, thinking that i would get the hatchling as well (my fault, i misread the description), so i am only going to get the Imperial adult blueprint. If i change one of my dragons to an Imperial, can i still breed the dragon and get the imperial hatchling, or do i need the hatchling blueprint? I can't wait for the website to launch. Excellent work all around. Oh and by the way, you guys did reach the sixth goal.

When bred, imperial dragons produce imperial hatchlings. :-) THere's no separate hatchling blueprint. When we said that "imperial hatchlings may be in your future" we were implying that with two imperial dragon blueprints you could apply one to a male and one to a female dragon, guaranteeing 100% imperial offspring. :-) You can crossbreed imperial dragons with other breeds, but the chances are high that the resulting offspring will be the other dragon's breed.

Neondragon I do hope you make the bestiary and artbook available at some point to purchase from you since I would love to have more of your books on my shelf to look at and be inspired by. Just a thought if you keep that open to purchase once the game is going and rather have it be just a kickstarter thing, I hope so.

The artbook is currently available on amazon. The bestiary is produced specially for this project, so it's not available elsewhere right now. Thank you for the interest!

Neon, I would donate for the kickstarter but it doesn't accept Paypal
Is there any other way for those of us without credit cards to help with it?

:iconneondragon:
neondragon Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
At this time, no. Our apologies, the only payment method kickstarter accepts is Amazon Payments. If we can come up with another solution I'll be sure to post about it, but right now we're limited by Kickstarter. (though it's been very good to us and we're thrilled that our server is well-paid for!)
