Dally looked at the map on the screen in front of her and frowned. Beside her, Obsi also frowned. “This is not as complicated as it looks,” Obsi said. “Right?”
Dally shook her head. “No, it’s not.” She pointed to the red highlights on the map. “Whatever has a red skull on it is a target. Attack that.”
Obsi rolled her eyes. “I know THAT. I mean in a more general sense.”
Dally took a turn to roll her eyes. “The more we capture the better we do. Minor monuments are worth more than regular territories, and major monuments are worth more than both. Et cetera…just like any other PVP.”
Obsi put her hands up in surrender. “Ok big sis. Kill kill kill as per usual.” She walked over and sat in the chair in the corner, next to the still covered portrait of their father. “So tell me about this new dragon?”
Dally’s eyes lit up. “Jul. My second garnet tier dragon. I’m so excited!”
Obsi laughed. “Is he mythic or something?”
Dally shook her head. “No, but he’s awesome. I’ll have him breedable in no time!”
Obsi smiled knowingly. “And then you’ll have Hauset and can finally stop complaining about not having her,” she teased.
Dally glared at her sister in mock anger. “Yes, and then I’ll go through all the pain of learning how to fly her, then I can teach you how to do it in no time!”
Obsi cocked her head to one side and looked wide-eyed at her sister. “Isn’t that what big sisters are for?” she asked innocently.
Dally tried to think of a quirky reply, but instead burst into a fit of laughter that swept Obsi into it, and they laughed themselves to tears. Once they caught their breath Obsi spoke again.
“Seriously though, if you have two garnet dragons why are you still stuck behind the Sapphire Wall? Shouldn’t going into garnet get you past that?”
“Well, no.” Dally said thoughtfully. She turned her screen on and motioned for Obsi to join her in front of it. Before them was her breeding path. “The way I see it, one is not fully into a tier until one has enough eggs to upgrade the builder hut within that tier. In order for me to get the garnet eggs I need, well really anyone needs to do this, I need to breed Icicle. But, I need to breed sapphire dragons to do that; Hauset and Gorgonus.”
Obsi nodded. “Back breeding to move forward. I think I understand now.”
“Good,” Dally said with a smile. “Do you understand how you’re going to get to level 63, hatch two gold dragons, get them to breedable, and also get to level 70 to breed them within the next two weeks?”
Obsi laughed. “You have no faith in me, do you?” Dally rolled her eyes, and Obsi continued. “Did you realize that Lazy, or Lawrence as he’s really called, is Jax’s son?”
“I did not,” Dally replied thoughtfully. “But I should have I think. I remember Jax saying something when I asked him to help you with your base and he said he wanted to retire. He said he’d hand pick someone and not give it to his lazy son,” she said with a smile.
“Yes well, apparently working with Moss and Winchester has knocked the lazy out of him. He’s been doing great on my base. But what I wanted to say was he’s asked his father to come on as a consultant to help with the massive undertaking that is my base at the moment.” Obsi frowned. “I’ve been too careful in my upgrades I think.”
Dally shook her head. “No, you haven’t. Just make sure you keep your farms and dragons up as you go along. Don’t let them fall behind or you’ll have a totally different problem that’s much harder than possibly having to sit out a breeding event.”
Obsi nodded. “I suppose so. I also suppose I must be getting back to my base,” she said as she waved her hand in a circular motion to activate the portal to her base. “I have to plan attacks and upgrades today.”
Dally hugged her sister and watched her step into the portal. “Plan smart!” she called.
Voron flew in through the window and landed next to her screen. He had a small scroll in his mouth, which he waited patiently for Dally to take. She gently scratched his neck before reading the note. She sighed, and took a moment to refresh the raven’s food and water before heading for the door.
“I still want to know what crimson battle pants are,” she said to Voron. The raven shrugged and settled in to eat. Dally smiled as she left her chamber.
“I think I feel the same way, my darling raven. I truly do.”
