霓紋翼龍發布於2013/11/30的「Late-November Release」主題中。在發布之前,有許多關於何時會是那一天的到來的揣測,由於TJ表示:為了讓萬聖龍有充裕的時間茁壯,十一月發布可能在月中到月底之間。」這引發了許多用戶超過兩個星期都讓軸頁維持在蓄勢待搶的狀態。這樣高昂的情緒在很多玩家假定會是發布日的感恩節或黑色星期五那天達到了沸騰;但結果這兩日都沒有出現新蛋。

在龍洞軸頁上,若排序方式是按照品種(Breed),則系統會依龍種名稱的開頭字母順序排列。該龍被設定排列名稱為「Twister Wyvern」是排在「T」順位。(設計師Birdzgoboom在菲律賓事件後更改了龍名稱。)

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It already has a pair of wings, but it can’t fly very well with them.

阿……這是一隻可愛的龍寶寶。牠已經長出一對翅膀,但牠還不能飛得很好。

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It already has a pair of wings, but it can’t fly very well with them.
And look! It’s gotten bigger and has grown a second pair of wings, making it able to fly better than any hatchling you’ve ever seen.

阿……這是一隻可愛的龍寶寶。牠已經長出一對翅膀,但牠還不能飛得很好。

看!牠長大了一些且已經長出第二對翅膀,這使牠能飛翔得比你所見過的任何幼龍都還要好。

Nhiostrife wyverns are one of the few known breeds of wyvern with more than one set of wings. Because of their four wings, Nhiostrifes are very nimble in the air and have complete control their own movements with ease. When it’s mating season, males put up a very beautiful and unique air dance in an attempt to charm a female. The amount of stripes on their wings vary, with more stripes being more attractive, although most have only two to four. Their general attitude is very passive and curious—they only fight if they themselves or their family are in danger.

霓紋翼龍是已知的幾種翼龍中有一對以上的羽翼的龍種。因為牠們有四只翅膀,因此霓紋翼龍在空中非常靈活敏捷,能輕而易舉的活動自如。每當繁殖季節來臨,雄性會在高空中展現出一種非常美麗且獨一無二的舞蹈,試圖令雌性著迷。牠們雙翼上的斑紋數量都不盡相同,有越多斑紋者就越引人注目,然而多數只有兩到四道斑紋。牠們的性情一般非常漠然且難以理解——牠們的打鬥僅僅只在自身或家人處於危險時才會發生。

Nhiostrife_Wyvern_Concept拷貝.gif

Name: Nhiostrife Wyvern (a spin on “Neon/Neo Striped Wyvern”)

The original breed name was going to be Twister, but after the recent events in the Philippines, I decided to change the name. The sort name is still Twister though—that’s why it shows up where it does alphabetically on a person’s scroll. So either name is cool to call 'em!

Or, you know, Flutterbutts!

Personality: Nhiostrifes are passive and curious; they only fight when they absolutely have to. There have been a number of incidents in which farmers would go into their barns only to be greeted by a Nhiostrife all curled and cramped up where the other animals (such as cows or pigs) are, not having a care in the world. Because of their curiosity they tend to cause problems innocently, such as knocking through walls or eating something they probably shouldn’t (which will end up happening far too often throughout their lifetime). If they get in a bad mood, they can get very nasty, but once they’re not angry they feel bad about their behavior and do their best to make it up to whomever they may have upset or hurt.

Size: It varies between male and female. Males are generally larger than females. Females range between four to six feet in body length (not including tail), have a body height of five to seven feet, a wingspan of twelve to thirteen feet, and a buttwing span of six to nine feet. Males range between five to eight feet in body length (not including tail), have a body height of six to nine feet, a wingspan of thirteen to fifteen feet, and a buttwing span of eight to eleven feet.
For both genders, the tail easily adds another five to seven feet onto their body length.

Habitat: Most live strictly in areas with open air (mountaintops, open fields, etc) so they don't run into things when flying. Occasionally those with better eyesight will travel out of those general areas.

Weapons: Since they lack upper arms, their back legs are very strong. One kick or swipe of a foot can easily break through tough brick walls. They also have the ability to breathe an incredibly hot blue fire, but they generally don’t use it much.

Mating: Females don’t really have to do a thing when it comes to finding a mate—it’s all up to the males. A male Nhiostrife will put up a beautiful air display that is completely unique from all others in an attempt to charm a female. If a female is charmed by the male, they will become mates for life.
More stripes → more attractive. Most Nhiostrifes only have between 2 and 4 stripes, though. Very rarely is there a Nhiostrife with completely blue wings, but if there is one, he would have the pick of nearly any female in the vicinity.

Diet/Hunting: Nhiostrifes are omnivorous. When they eat meat, they usually hunt for sheep, deer, goat, and the like. They do have a strange love for potatoes, and an owner could probably make the wyvern do some pretty amusing things for one. They also like to eat berries and oranges.
Because of their general nearsightedness, Nhiostrifes have a great sense of hearing and smell. Even if they can’t see their prey when flying, they can hear or smell them and determine where they are before swooping in and catching their meal.

Anatomy/Etc: Muscular legs with big feet. Their nails curl similar to a bird of prey’s.
They are nearsighted and have two sets of wings—one near their shoulders and the other near their back legs. As a hatchling, they only have one set of wings, making it impossible for them to fly because they cannot balance themselves in the air. If an adult Nhiostrife loses the ability to use its hind wings, it will lose the ability to fly forever unless the wings heal. This main need for a second set of wings comes from the Nhiostrife’s eyesight and a less-than-stellar sense of depth when flying. With this added set of wings, they're able to keep themselves completely stable in the air and make quick turns that may take other dragons more time to do. Being able to make sudden turns and twists helps counteract their nearsightedness.

名稱:霓紋翼龍(集結了「霓虹/新條紋翼龍」的含意。)
原先的品種名稱是「龍捲風(Twister)」,但在近期發生的菲律賓事件後,我決定改變名稱。但排序名稱仍然是龍捲風,這就是為什麼當在軸頁上按照字母順序排列,牠們會被排在「T」順位。所以牠們還有這麼一個很酷的名稱。
或者你知道的,Flutterbutts!(flutter是拍動翅膀;butt是臀部……應該是來自於牠們第二對翅膀的微妙位置所致。)

性格:霓紋翼龍是消極且好奇的;牠們只在絕對必要時才會戰鬥。已經有許多小插曲發生的情況,都是當農場人員進入他們的牲口棚,就看到一隻蜷縮著,與其他動物(如牛或豬)擠在一起的,一副不知世間憂愁的霓紋翼龍。

由於牠們好奇的天性,往往會導致稀里糊塗的問題,像是撞穿牆面或是吃牠們很大可能不能吃的東西(這種事情牠們終其一生都會過於頻繁的發生)。當牠們心情不好,可能會變得非常令人討厭,不過一旦牠們氣消了,就會對牠們的態度感到糟糕並盡最大努力去彌補那些可能因此不高興或被傷害到的任何對象。

大小:在雄性與雌性間是不同的:雄龍與雌龍相比通常體型較大。雌龍的身長(不包括尾巴)在四到六英呎之間,身高在五到七英呎之間,翼展有十二到十三英呎寬,臀部的翼展有六到九英呎。
雄龍的身長(不包括尾巴)在五到八英呎間,身高有六到九英呎,翼展達到十三到十五英呎,臀部的翼展有八到十一英呎。
雌、雄龍的尾巴都能輕易的讓身長增加五到七英呎。

棲地:大多數都居住在露天地區(像山頂、空曠的原野等)這樣牠們飛行時就不用擔心會碰撞到東西。
偶爾也會有些視力優越的個體遷出一般的地區。

武器:由於牠們沒有上肢,所以牠們的後腿都非常有力;一個踢蹬或掃腿就能很輕易的擊穿堅實的磚牆。牠們也有噴出炙熱的藍色火焰的能力,但一般不常使用。

繁衍:說到尋找伴侶,雌龍不需要真的做任何事——這一切取決於雄龍。一隻雄霓紋翼龍會在空中展示出有別於其他龍的,完全獨一無二的美麗姿態試圖去誘惑雌龍。若有雌龍醉心於該雄龍,則牠們會成為終生伴侶。
有更多斑紋,就等於有更多的魅力;雖然大部分的霓紋翼龍只有二到四條斑紋。非常罕見的情況是,一隻霓紋翼龍有著通體湛藍的雙翼;若真的有,牠就有著三千佳麗等著挑選。

飲食與狩獵:霓紋翼龍是雜食性的,若吃肉,則通常獵取綿羊、山羊、鹿或其他喜歡的。牠們對馬鈴薯有著古怪的狂熱,持有者或許就能以此為誘惑使霓紋翼龍做出什麼超級逗趣的事。牠們也喜歡吃漿果和柑橘。
由於牠們普遍視力欠佳,霓紋翼龍有卓越的聽覺和嗅覺,即使無法在飛行中看到牠們的獵物,也能明確的聽到或嗅到目標,然後俯衝下來攫住牠們的大餐。

剖析及其他:強健的腿與大腳掌。牠們的指甲就像猛禽類那樣彎曲。
牠們是大近視,有兩對翅膀——一對靠近肩膀;一對靠近後腿。剛孵化時,牠們只有一對翅膀,這時牠們因為無法在空中保持平衡,所以還不能飛行。若一隻成年的霓紋翼龍的後對翅膀發生狀況,除非那對翅膀可以恢復正常,否則牠將失去飛行力。那是因為霓紋翼龍飛行時的視覺和可憐的景深感主要仰賴第二對翅膀。有了這輔助的翅膀,牠們得以在空中完全的保持平衡與做出其他龍可能需要更多時間才能施行完成的快速旋轉,也能做出急轉彎,這協助扭轉且抵銷了牠們的不良視力。
