Honestly, one of my favorite things about Black Rose, is the Familiarses species. THIS is a UNICORN!!! It’s about three feet tall at the shoulder. It’s one of many ‘generations’ of unicorns, but since I haven’t reached the point of explaining them to the kids, and won’t for a long time, all the details aren’t available. Well.. I have the details! A Generation is much like a species, all hatched at the same time from one of the Great Familarses, mothers that lay hundreds of eggs at one time every few years that are all essentially a new species of animal. They are the top tier of Familarses, very rare, and very guarded, because nobody KNOWS what’s going to come out of those eggs. The eggs hatch into the first generation, which while holding the same genes for their species, are each genetically diverse as if they were completely unrelated, so they can interbreed without problems. Unicorns have been hatched out of several generations, so there is a huge variety of unicorns, covering split footed to hooved, to these little things that bounce around on dainty little hooves like goats. They can not interbreed with other generations, even though they share the same mother. This also means, that if they are not ‘managed’ well, a generation can completely die out. For old breeds, like the phoenix, this is really bad. There are few of them left, because they are so old and revered.
Yes, I’m still a bit away from updating, but not far. I’m learning to use new software on a new computer and dealing with a lot of medical issues that need to be paid. I also have a PONY convention this weekend, Nightmare Nights on Friday.
I don’t often get time to go to EVERY site and post updates, but if a story is going, it will eventually continue again and be completed! As long as I haven’t taken it down, it will continue!
