"Ah, I see you're both here!" he exclaimed.
Dally turned and smiled at her sister, then at the Druid. "Yes, Druid Krieger. I thought you could give us a deeper understanding of how breeding works."
The Druid lowered his hood and revealed a face with a pale completion, short reddish brown hair with a matching goatee and mustache, and kind brown eyes. "I'd love to!" He spread his arms and entered the circle of buckets. "These are the breeding tokens you all work so hard to obtain. Many think they are used to actually breed the eggs but that's not true. The dragons do that...well...organically."
Obsi cocked her head to her left. "Then why do we need the tokens?"
Druid Krieger smiled. "Well that's the interesting part. An 'organic' dragon egg can take anywhere from one to five years to hatch, and there's no guarantee that the eggs laid in the wild will be viable. The magic contained in these tokens guarantee that the egg is viable, and drastically cuts the incubation time of the egg. Of course the higher level the dragon, the longer the incubation time."
"What about mystic fragments?" Obsi asked moving her head to the other side.
"Well, to explain them I need to explain more about the tokens. See, each token will go to a specific egg. After the dragon lays the egg, we bring it here and put it on a pedestal. If there is only one egg, the tokens of course go to that egg. But, if there are multiple eggs, they are put on multiple pedestals and we toss the tokens at the eggs. The tokens will gravitate to a certain egg, covering in until the entire egg is encased in a very thin layer of gold. It becomes clear after a few moments, then the egg is ready for the incubator. Mystic fragments are not egg specific, and can be manually placed on any egg you wish."
"Where do they come from?" Obsi asked, her interest in the subject piqued.
"The PG Sorcerers of course. I've tried to replicate them but I just haven't been able to figure it out."
"And if you did," Dally said as she slowly crossed toward him, "the PG Sorcerers would end you. And I don't want that."
"Also yes," he replied quickly.
"So Obsi," Dally said with a smile, "what are you breeding this time?"
"Well, I need to finish Gaspar and Garzev, then get them breedable, then Ith and Ettin."
"Excellent!" Druid Krieger exclaimed. "You've already started breeding them. That's good - it will take pressure off the loads of egg tokens you'll need going forward. Try to do that as often as possible."
"He's big on that," Dally laughed.
"Makes sense," Obsi said. "But what about the Divine Dragons?"
"Ah!" Druid Krieger exclaimed, clasping his hands in front of his face. "Those are created by the PG Sorcerers and placed around the realms. You already know what it takes to obtain them. The sigil works as currency to earn the rewards needed to obtain the eggs. They are already viable upon receipt."
Obsi nodded. "I have one more question. What do you know about Harbinger Dragons?"
"Every so often a more powerful group of dragons is discovered, like the Harbingers. But, it will be a while before either of you is ready to breed them."
"Ok, it's almost the end of the event," Dally said. "We need to get back and get the rest of our teams out of the pits."
Druid Krieger bowed deeply and walked quickly back the way he came. Dally turned to Obsi. "Ok sis, let's go kick some butt!"
