Writing Stories for the 12 Dragons

Dragon artwork is pouring in from our artists for our Dragon Idle Game project in collaboration with the creators of Cookie Clicker. Writing each Dragon's individual progression story has been really fun... and challenging! Each of the 12 Dragons have a unique story.  For example, the Steampunk Dragon is not hatched from an egg, but rather built from a blue print then prototype. As the story progresses you continually upgrade the Steampunk Dragon's hardware and computer AI until you reach the singularity and cause a robot uprising. Be sure to like and follow the official AdventureQuest Dragons Facebook page where I am posting sneak peaks of the art and more information about the individual dragons... including the Darkness Dragon listed above. 

Also happening this week...

Cysero and the team will be heading to DragonCon 2014! At the official Artix Entertainment panel we will be 1.) Announcing the OTHER secret game project and 2.) Premiere the Chaos Poster and 3.) Reveal more about the new storyline for AdventureQuest Worlds-- which everyone will learn about in this Friday's new www.AQ.com special release!

Because you clicked "read more"... you get special DRAGONS bonus concept art!

QUESTION: What do you think the story for the Darkness Dragon should be?

Sorry Comments are now closed for this post.
Darkorius
Darkorius: The story of the Darkness dragon should start like:From the darkest shadows of the Underworld a baby dragon rises,hiding his sinister nature with its cuteness.

KittyGotWet: The darkness dragon was born in the dark, molded by it. It didn't see the light until it was a man, but it was nothing to him but blinding.

Dross: YES. Sounds good to me. Hahahaaa...
Eonaleth
Eonaleth: Be cool to have him be a shadowborn and have him start off in the elemental plane of darkness and eventually be unleashed into the world. Would also be cool to see how he takes form (like showing him as just a shadow and evolving into his dragon form, maybe shapeshifting)

Luke1164: Personally I think it would be cool if the Darkness Dragon was a dragon that gradually has the light sapped out of it as it grows, causing it to become twisted and malicious. Then it can still be a cute Dragon when it's a hatchling.

Inanitas
Inanitas: The Darkness Dragon was born in the Elemental Plane of Darkness and as it grew it learned to attach it's essence to a Doom Item so it could roam Lore and as it grew and adapted by using it's Doom Item's host it was able to show it's true form to Lore.

Genjuhru
Genjuhru: This dragon should be fueled by destruction and fear, or grows from feeding off negative emotions and such. Story-wise... uhm "For every Light Dragon hatches from its egg, a Darkness Dragon slithers out of--" something like that.

Kenamo
Kenamo: Make his story one of untold sadness, left alone deep underground by his parents deep below the crust of the planet where not even a sliver of light reaches. It grows alone, afraid of the hostile environment, scavenging the smallest of prey animals in the pitchblack environment. Eventually it begins to grow, it gains in power feeding off the fear from the prey he stalks for days; eventually growing up into the massive apex predator the harsh upbringing forged it to be.

Cysero
Cysero: If his story was one of untold sadness then we couldn't tell it.
Kenamo
Kenamo: Aww sadness, no story of sadness. Still I'm sure whatever you guys settle on will be awesome.
Necrosis
Necrosis: Though some random nearly-impossible fluke he spawned the very moment Sepulchure made a pact with the doom blade though he was only bonded with the dark lord for a moment because in order for both Sepulchre and the doom blade to exist he cannot. Only thou the death of the dark lord Sepulchre or the destruction of the doom blade can he be reborn.

Cybermccloud: Oh! I got this! So: The darkness dragon was actually a dragon with no element. One day, the egg fell into a dark void, where the egg turned into a dark egg. When it hatched, it had no idea that it was a dragon with no element. #LifeInANutshell

Xen-AQ3D
Xen-AQ3D: The darkness dragon should grow for every source of light/life it snuffs out. Much like a shadow covers more and more as the lights go out, this thing gains power for everything opposite to it that is destroyed, rather than taking in things similar to it.

Dark123
Dark123: Darkness Dragon story: Once, the brightest & happiest dragons, after a battle with an unknown creature it had changed to being the Darkness Dragon, the darkest dragon in existence.

phlynch
phlynch: the shadow dragon is just that, a shadow, trained from birth to follow the light dragon wherever it may go, always in the shadows, ready to do what the light dragon will not to maintain balance. Also the green dragon should be named Desmond.

DerpSonic
DerpSonic: Now that would be interesting! And more original. The other half the draconic spirit of order and balance. Nice!
DerpSonic
DerpSonic: Yes... YES! Definitely Trigoras! Dagron would be cool too! It would be great to have some references to the other games! The Darkness Dragon? ...What if he wasn't always a dragon? What if he was twisted by some dark necrotic power? Maybe he was a young, dark-haired prince once... Maybe. I dunno.

Dragonmand
Dragonmand: You mean Drakath? he did become a darkness dragon before he bacame the champion of chaos. maybe it could be Drakath reborn. and in some way when it's growing up you could choose to let it stay pure darkness or let it fall to chaos to make the (Champion of) Chaos Dragon.
Meta
Meta: I have an idea.... It should start with the struggle of Good vs Evil, Then all of a sudden a new enemy comes in, Chaorrupted (Thats what we'll call it) and rise his 13 Chaos dragons.

Stalagbite
Stalagbite: good idea but the chaos dragon is Stalagbite
Fife M
Fife M: He is the harbinger of night, the dragon of the stars. His sightless eyes glow as the brightest stars of the night sky. He sees in the night. He is the knight of the evening and the guardian of man. When light moves on and can linger no longer he comes to watch and protect the lands alongside his fellow stars. He passes on when light returns from it's sojourn. Among dragonkind, he and Light are honored as silent protectors against evil.

Colossus
Colossus: The Darkness Dragon. Too many mistake darkness for evil. It is not a creature of cruelty. That's the premise. The story is kinda iffy but...A being born to right the wrongs of dark magic. When (Kingadent)Slugwrath slew (someone, possibly the ruler of Lore before him) with dark magic, the Darkness Dragon as a cub popped out of the shadow of the fallen (victim of Slugwrath).
