I was making a army of thorny dragon I forgot to look at the right temp to make them hatch right and when I hatched them ( 2% triplets) in a few seconds of checking them out they died I thought it was the mom but no she was on clean up(eating the bodies) hope this helps
This is the best tame in the game period. So good in fact I built a pyramid shrine in the dunes to celebrate the majesty of the thorny dragon. I go there everyday to clear out hostile creatures so they can live in harmony.
About 20 massive Carnivores. All dead. Some chomped in half. A megalosaurus had its front half in the lava. It looked like Tyrana ran past most of the carnivores. Goliath had no problem slaughtering them though. Tyrana must have really wanted to get to Scorched Earth. You could see the part of the ceiling where Goliath kept hitting his head. The four snuck over to the portal to the overseer arena, thankfully it was still open. Goliath must have gone through already. When they went through the portal, All they could hear was a roar of Goliath, then a bright white flash and everyone was flying through space at an incredibly fast speed.
The two decided they would work together for right now, just to get Tyrana. If they could kill Tyrana, the troops would go back to Nerva. “Cut off the head and the rest will follow”, as Christopher said. Then Nerva realized something. Goliath was at the Tek Gate, and the Gate was wide open. There was no way that Goliath could have all the boss trophies, so Tyrana must have already been here. But wait, that giga roar must’ve been… A giga showed up right behind them. “Run!” Christopher yelled. They jumped down into the volcano. Thankfully they had all landed on rock instead of magma. The Giga wasn’t so lucky. They watched the giga scream in pain as it burnt to death. They turned around. Goliath had gone, crawled to fit into the cave. They should follow. They walked into the cave and as they rounded a cave saw a horrifying sight.
The Wyverns had brought them to an arena, where Goliath was ripping the guts out of a poor Yutyrannus. Although that was barbaric, Nerva couldn’t help but be impressed with them. They developed the intelligence to enjoy watching things battle, and they were smart enough to pit creatures against each other in an arena so they could watch things battle whenever they want. They had built, well, actually more like used their lightning breath to carve out areas that were used for certain things. There was an eating area, a sleeping area, even an area for other animals. They had advanced a lot. After about an hour, a poison wyvern came in, and said, “We have found Tyrana’s Stronghold.” They set off, and Nerva rode in the back of a poison wyvern, and Spike was held in the talons. It was clear he was not very happy about this.
Nerva had faced down a giant monster, watched that giant monster fight a tusoteuthis, and waged an all-out war, he thought he saw it all. But he never would have thought in a million years that a kapro could scare off something that big, let alone talk. But now they needed a plan. Finally Nerva asked “Have you seen a group of humans? A big group, with lots of pet dinosaurs?” “Yes, in fact they have a castle over in the dunes”, the kapro responded. “We can’t siege a castle on our own.” Christopher said. “Is there anyone that can help us?” Nerva asked. “Maybe, no humans, but maybe the Wyvern King and his army.” “Worth a shot.” Christopher said. “Okay, follow me.” When the trench got into eyeshot, two wyvern came and looked at them. Any species could recognize that look. “Follow us”, it meant. They knew they were just lucky to be alive. They brought them to the king, and the king and the other two wyverns exchanged growls and hisses. They were communicating. Suddenly in a loud, snake-like voice the king asked, “Why have you come to my trench?” “We seek help. I’m sure Tyrana has been giving you trouble too.” “Yes, she and her army has.” “Well, I propose an alliance. We siege Tyrana’s castle.” The king pondered this for a moment. The silence was broken by a familiar roar. Goliath. “And we can release Goliath on them too.” The king pondered this some more. “I accept”, he finally said.
Nerva walked through the jungle very carefully. He led his trike close behind. He saw a pack of Allosaurs over here before. If they came across them, he could probably take them, it was only three, but he would rather avoid a fight. Suddenly, Spike roared, and four raptors popped out of the trees. The pack leader hissed at them. Spike charged at one and impaled it with his horn. Another leaped at him, and he stomped it into the ground. Nerva stabbed one with his spear, and it shrieked before dying. The last one lunged at him, bit his spear, and broke it in half. With one quick motion he threw the pieces of the spear aside and punched the raptor in the face, knocking it out. “Okay, let’s go. Spike”, Nerva said. His position as leader of the most powerful army in the ark had been taken by Tyrana. She and her army had already beaten all of the guardians, and were going to ascend. He would follow her into the Tek Cave, and he would steal back the throne once they were on the next Ark. All he had to do was make it to the volcano alive alive.
Kenya stumbled to a halt at the top of the cliff as he heard the familiar screech of a Deathworm up ahead. He scrambled up the last slope until he stood on a wind-battered ledge, gazing down below.
Two humans were standing defensively in between a triceratops and stegosaurus, facing a Deathworm.
‘They’ll be torn apart!’ he thought, bounding down the slope and sending up a wake of dust. He leapt in front of the humans, baring his fangs at the Deathworm. It let out a screech in its hard-to-hear voice, snapping its jaws angrily.
Kenya reared onto his hind legs, leaning against his tail slightly so he didn’t fall. “Back off!” he snarled, adding a deep snarl to his voice. “Leave them alone!” He looked over his shoulder at the humans briefly. “Make yourselves look huge,” he murmured to them, before turning back towards the Deathworm.
“Leave!” he repeated, snapping his jaws at the air. With a last screech, the Deathworm dove back underground, and the shuddering of the earth faded as the huge creature left.
Kenya dropped back into all fours, turning to face the humans. “Sorry about that,” he said. “Deathworms aren’t the nicest.”
The humans stared at him for a long moment, mouths open. One of them turned to the other and then finally said, “Did that thing just talk?”
Nerva got up. He noticed his Implant now glowed green. Guess the Ark thought he helped killed the overseer. He was in the middle of a desert. Over to his left spike was was on his side, eyes widened at what just happened. Thankfully Goliath was nowhere to be found, and Christopher was right next to him on his right. His Stegosaurus was there too, bewildered just as much as Spike. “Is this the next Ark?” Nerva asked. “Must be.” Christopher responded. “Well, we better get going on the search for Tyrana”, Nerva said. Then, the ground shook, and a massive worm came up from the ground, covered in keratin spikes.
‘Careful. Stay quiet. Don’t make a sound. They’ll find you. They’ll kill you.’
Kenya didn’t really think all of that was true. But that’s what Cyber said, and according to her, she was literally absolutely ALWAYS right. But still, Kenya stayed out of sight of the two humans who were running around below the ledge he was crouched on. He peered over the edge of the ledge, down into the pretty-much-dry riverbed. Only a small trickle of water still ran through.
Kenya couldn’t exactly be bitter towards Cyber for warning him about the humans. She’d been around much longer then him, and he’d seen the way that humans shoot creatures with their weapons, for whatever reason they did that.
The humans stood in the middle of the used-to-be river, talking. Kenya had gotten pretty good at interpreting human chatter, so he could understand most of their conversation.
Kenya shuffled along the ledge, ducking behind a large boulder so the humans wouldn’t see him and try to attack.
He took a deep breath. “It’s not that hard,” he said to himself. “Right? Humans do it easy.”
Tensing all of his muscles, Kenya forced himself up onto his back legs and lifted his front legs off of the ground.
And he was balancing!
…For about 0.7 seconds, at least.
Kenya wobbled, flailing his arms wildly, before falling over and nearly landing on a cactus. He muffled a yelp as his long snout bonked against a rock.
He stood back on all four feet and padded back towards the ledge to watch the humans some more. But before he could reach them, a flash of light lit up the sky nearby.
‘What was that?’ Kenya thought, watching the flash of light as it hovered in the sky for a moment.
And then Kenya being Kenya, he ran in the direction of the flash of light.
Goliath burst through the castle’s lower levels. Everyone in the room was knocked back by the impact. When they got up, Tyrana charged at Nerva with her blade out, but Nerva unsheathed his edge and parried it. He then kicked her in the stomach, forcing her back a couple feet, and the two guards that accompanied Tyrana got up. One aimed his gun at Christopher, who’s Stegosaurus trampled the guard, and the other put his gun down and surrendered. The Stego looked at him angrily. Tyrana now was all alone, but she wasn’t going down without a fight. The castle was now crumbling, barely still able to be standing. Tyrana ran at Nerva again, but before she could make it the castle crumbled to the ground. When the dust and sand cleared, Goliath’s shadow loomed over them. He wasn’t on Tyrana’s side, but he was by no means on Nerva’s side either.
Alas, today was a saddening day. My loyal human, who has taught me much, has died. Somebody, a human has disguised himself as one of us with his own wyvern, and now we will hunt him until his blood is spilled upon the sands of this hereby ARK. My guards will stay here protecting our eggs, and my scout wyverns, along with I will search for this humans shelter. Maybe, it will be well defended with turrets or spikes, but the search began. Now, I wait for my scouts to find something.
* * *
It had been only hours, and this home of this human has been found. I am going to fly to it and deal with this human, personally. I flew, high in the sky with the sands below me, and now we had gotten there. The base was of Adobe, and his wyvern lay asleep. My fire wyverns were to stay back, my poison wyverns would fill this shelter with deadly poison, and my lightning wyverns kill the traitor wyvern. It was time, and we all unleashed our breath upon this place. Once we made sure everything died, we headed back. A grave, a memory of this human was to be made by the trench. How could we let such a thing happen…
They were at the slopes of the volcano. Nerva has seen this place a thousand times. “Okay, Spike, let’s get going.” Up the way they ran into a Rex, but Nerva and his Crossbow were able to take it down, with the help of Spike, of course. It felt good to have a crossbow in his hands again. He had used his rifle for so long, it felt almost refreshing. They made it to the top, and created a camp. Now he just had to wait for Tyrana. According to his source, Tyrana should be coming in about 3 hours. Once they were on scorched earth, he would sneak his way into Tyrana’s throne room (If he knew Tyrana, he knew she would want one), and convince Helgraf to help him get back the throne. But then about out half a mile down the slope, he saw someone he recognized. Christopher Walker.
After about half an hour of flying, they spotted Tyrana’s castle. It looked like it was a repaired old castle, which would explain why it was so advanced already. It’s five towers spiraling up into the sky, a heavy turret sat upon each. This was not going to be easy. Once they approached the castle, each wyvern let out a roar at the same time, then suddenly stopped. Then another roar, then stopped. A sort of war cry. “Tyrana, this is your last chance. Surrender, or these wyverns will topple this castle on top of you.”, Nerva said. No answer. “So be it.” The wyverns charged the castle, each one letting out a breath weapon. The castle returned fire, killing multiple wyverns. The wyverns blasted a hole in the side of the castle. They dropped off Christopher, Nerva, and their pets. Tyrana’s approached them, flanked by Helgraf, and two guards. “NERVA!”, Tyrana’s voice boomed. She drew her blade, as well as the guards, Helgraf, Nerva, and Christopher. “Your reign is over, Tyrana. You’re finished.” “I don’t think so. Do you see this around you? Your wyverns are dropping like flies.” “They’re not the only army.” “What do you mean?” “MY Army has taken very few casualties. Helgraf, you know I am rightfully still lord of this army.” “Sir, please lower your blade.”, Helgraf said. “You know I’m right.” “Sir, please.” “Helgraf.” Helgraf thought for a moment. Then he drew his pistol and aimed it at Tyrana. “I expected more, Helgraf.”, Tyrana said. She whipped around and stabbed Helgraf. “No!l”, Nerva yelled. A roar came from outside. He could tell it was the King Wyvern. The war chant began again, and then the unmistakable roar of Goliath sounded.
So we still had Goliath captured, for more pit fights. The wyverns were all doing well, but something strange happened. A wyvern flew into my throne, with information.
“We have spotted two humans, a kapro, stegosaurus, and strange creature with a plated face and three horns, along with two humans. Do we kill them, or let them come closer. I thought about this for a good few seconds. The humans who had built the castle… this wouldn’t be them, they wouldn’t have such creatures, and if they were here for eggs, wouldn’t they had already gone for them, I thought to myself.
“Let them explore, once seen, bring them to me, and I will deal with them.” I replied. The Wyvern flew off to tell the other wyverns, but I awaited the humans at the meeting room. Nobody ever used the meeting room, but now we could make use of it. I flew to the meeting room, and seconds later three wyverns flew into the meeting room. I noticed the wyverns were electric wyverns, so if the humans decided to try and kill me, they would not survive. The wyverns put the creatures and the humans and the ground, and I looked at them, waiting for them to speak. The humans said a few things, but then they said “we propose an alliance.” (Also, the wyverns are speaking their language, but I’m making it English because I can.)
“Do we accept the offer?” Said on of the wyverns.
“They aren’t apart of the humans that we want dead, I must consider this.” I said. I deeply pondered of what could happen, and how this could benefit us. I finally decided my answer, and I spoke.
“I accept.” I said to the humans. For now, they would probably have to stay here, or maybe somewhere else, but now this means that they can enter this place without being attacked. I hope I made a good decision.
I made sure everyone was on high guard, so that nothing happens again like what happened with those humans. We decided to let Goliath go for now, and explore this place, but later we would catch him again and make him fight. I decided to go explore, see where everyone was. I saw a death worm moving through the sand, so I went down to speak to him. The death worm came up, looking hungry. The death worm realized who I was, and knew what was going to happen.
“Have you found any humans?” I asked.
“I was going to eat two humans, but a kaprosuchus defended them. I decided to leave, and find different prey.” He replied.
“Very well then.” I said, and then flew off. Eventually, I found a huge stone castle. The humans lived here, and this where some of our wyverns were trapped, but I saw no turrets. How strange, if many people could make something like this, why couldn’t they make turrets? I saw a ballista being aimed at me, so I shot glob of poison at the person and flew off. I thought of the other the guardians of this place, the manticore and the webbed mistress, which was just a huge tarantula underground who slayed anybody who challenged her. I then questioned, did they make a clone of me to forever be respawned in my arena? If so, maybe I wouldn’t die. And I thought of the element they had dropped, and I realized something. Had the mutated rex thing been mutated from element? If element granted such power, maybe I could consume it, grow stronger and dominate this place. But alas, that may never happen. I flew back to my trench, wondering what to do next.
