to everyone who participated: genuinely, thank you so much and i appreciate each & every contribution.
i had big hopes & weird plans for 1st dragon, and i think i ... stretched them out too much. i'm thinking about doing something like this again but on a much smaller scale, built to last a week, tops. i apologize deeply for overscoping, for overestimating how long my attention (and your attentions!) might last. but i think if i did this again, i would make a better plan, and i would be able to actually make it... a full experience, from start to finish, with better tools in place for accepting creative inputs and rewarding them more deeply.
i hope everyone had a good time >.<
