Hi, I'm [ArchangelGabriel] and welcome to Dracology, a page devoted to the study of Dragons. The entire page has just gone through an ultimate revamp so there may be a few broken links. Make your self at home and feel free to look around.

We were one of the 'Top Fifteen Wiki-pages for the Months of September and October'

We have adopted a dragon called Dimbooyill!!!

Dracology Admin:



I am back, i'm ontop of my homework and other stuff so I should be around a lot more. If you have any dragon questions you can contact me. ~[ArchangelGabriel]~

I've started some new sections to Dracology including an entry on the Hydra (may not be fully tested) thanks to the help of [Erestor] and the Dracology polls.
Also I would like to know if any one is intrested in helping with a few articles. If you are contact [ArchangelGabriel].

I am proud to anounce that the Dracology Test is finaly open for the use of all members.

I'd like to really clean up the wiki.I'm looking for five people who are prepared to give up some of their time to help rewrite many of the articles and improve what we already have.
You don't have to be a reporter to help, you could donate art, suggest useful refrence sites or just give opions. I hope many of you will help in this update.

2005-08-07 [SpiralDragon]: Thats the Dragon gif in my Pure Dragons RP room. 

2005-08-08 [kabutali]: I found it on da internet. WEE!!!! But it was an anime site though. Hmmmm. Da theives are about us! *ducks and covers* Take your places men! Er... dragons!

2005-08-08 [ArchangelGabriel]: Apolagies to [wolf-pack_NL] and [Fashionably Restrained]. If they have any ideaas on how to improve this wiki then i shall be most grateful.

2005-08-08 [kabutali]: ??? What did they do?!

2005-08-08 [ArchangelGabriel]: They left ina humpf because this wiki was too boring.

2005-08-08 [kabutali]: A wiki with dragons, butter, and free lollypops if most definately not boring!!!! Hmph! Their brains must of been charcoaled... On a rainy day.

2005-08-08 [ArchangelGabriel]: lol, no, i can understand if they find it a bit ... dead. Its not dead, but dormant. Waiting for some one to tell me how to expand. For instance. Would people like the a better guided tour or maybe a few more stories...

2005-08-10 [ChibiTibs]: Both sounds good if you want my opinion.

2005-08-10 [kabutali]: Animations! Animations! WEE!!! (loves gifs) <3

2005-08-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: Ahh... Personaly i find animations a little... Cheap.

2005-08-10 [SpiralDragon]: Well then.... we need movies!!!! lol ^__^

2005-08-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: hmm.... i'm not volantering to get close enough.

2005-08-10 [SpiralDragon]: Posting a movie as a gif, that would make the page take forever to load up!

2005-08-10 [SpiralDragon]: The size and space it would need? wow *elftown crash*

2005-08-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: you don't have to put it as a gif. You could only diplay it as a gif though.

2005-08-10 [SpiralDragon]: Im not sure what you mean?...>.<

2005-08-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: Well. You can link to a movie, you just can't acctualy have a movie playing. Only gifs can play... i ithnk *wonders* i should test that

2005-08-10 [Shadowsoul]: ........

2005-08-11 [kabutali]: waaaaaaaahhhhh! Gif are awsome! sometimes annoying BUT AWSOME!!!! I linky would be a great idea! ^-^!

2005-08-11 [SpiralDragon]: But like I said wouldn't take forever to load the page?

2005-08-11 [ArchangelGabriel]: Depends. Do you find the one at the top of this page slows it down? I know how to make some really good gifs when it comes to saving space.

2005-08-11 [SpiralDragon]: lol but that Dragon gif is only a few clips of info? not a whole movie. You know how to make gifs? maybe some time you could teach me, I think I have a program that makes gifs but I don't know how to use it...

2005-08-11 [ArchangelGabriel]: There are two parts to making a gif, first you have to make the frames, then you have to decide the times. That way you can have action and then makea long hiatus before it plays the action again. Aloit of people forget to do this.

2005-08-11 [SpiralDragon]: Oh...ok ^__^ so are we the only ones who thought up a movie as a gif?...

2005-08-11 [Penguinlord]: Microsoft make a great free gif animator...

2005-08-12 [kabutali]: I have a movie/gif maker!!! And I have the just of how to use it but never tried. Well I did but it had words in it and it doesn't like words... ^^;(got messed up)

2005-08-12 [kabutali]: Did that make any sense?

2005-08-12 [ArchangelGabriel]: Alright then. Dragon GIFs. Only GIFS made by members will be accepted. If you don't have uploading rights then i'll add them on my photobucket account. You cannot use them on your houese. And only on other wikis with the artists permission.

2005-08-13 [kabutali]: ? I can't get URL's...-_-; No website.

2005-08-13 [ArchangelGabriel]: that makes no sence. What do you mean?

2005-08-14 [kabutali]: Well I don't have a scanner. (just got one ^-^! nevermind) but I don't have a place to upload the gif where it won't freeze. Unless thats what you were talking about, with photobucket?

2005-08-14 [ArchangelGabriel]: Yeah. If you upload them to elftown then you turn it into a *.jpg , instead, send it to <>,

2005-08-18 [kabutali]: um... k.....I think....I'll just sit and watch you all do the work instead. ^^! (can't do a thing)

2005-08-18 [nunt]: how do you make animated gifs?

2005-08-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: I make drawplus animations and export them...

2005-08-19 [kabutali]: over, over, and over again with just slight modifications. ^^

2005-08-25 [kabutali]: o_0 oh?! wha!? IT SUICIDE!!!! NOOOO! DON'T DO IT LOBSANG!!! IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!!

2005-08-25 [ArchangelGabriel]: I just felt like a change of house. Incadentaly. If any one else wants to spread the word of blake then the image is free to use.

2005-08-26 [SpiralDragon]: No.. no one really should do that. It was your choice.

2005-09-13 [nokaredes]: Advertising! :O

2005-09-13 [werewolf grrrrl]: HI

2005-10-16 [innolongerhere]: well well well...i kinda like this place...say i could add alot to this place...i have plenty on dragons...anatomy, living habbits, breeding grounds...Quite interesting...

2005-10-16 [ArchangelGabriel]: Sounds good. I'm planning on going over all of the previous articles. Making them less definte. Adding more theorys, and trying to just root ir mor ein relaity... It's getting up for a couple of years now so it needs a good clkean out. Check the [#NEWS#] for more info....

2005-11-12 [Eloura]: *watches*

2005-11-12 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: I'm surprised there isn't an illustration of the Great Western. This Wiki is more than welcome to any of my art, without asking. Earthbound's

2005-11-12 [ArchangelGabriel]: Thank you very much. It will come in incredibly useful.

2005-11-13 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: no problem. also, theres a little more at

2005-11-18 [nunt]: I could contribute some art if you'd like it.

2005-11-30 [Lady of Lore]: Whoooo! I ogtta new scanner so once I figure out how to do all the stuff on it I'll have a bunch of art you can use. I'm so psyched! I've been desperatly needing a scanner since forever!!!

2005-12-01 [kabutali]: Ahhhh. I remember when I finally got a new scanner. *goes into flashback mode* Oh! hey! I win again! WEE!

2005-12-01 [kabutali]: Its been so long since I last drew a dragon. My drawing skills have much approved... I don't know what I am capable of with drawings of dragons. Hmm....

2005-12-02 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: lets see, post them in your house or a wiki, and leve a link...i love dragons, ill check it out sometime.

2005-12-19 [Lady of Lore]: does anyone have any suggestions of what kinds of dragons to draw?

2005-12-19 [BlackDragon]: Chinese?

2005-12-20 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah, everyone (myself included) seems to focus on western dragons, we dont have enough good eastern dragons...

2005-12-21 [BlackDragon]: Eastern dragons are very interesting.. When looking at some very old drawing of one pay attention to how many claws it has. They usually ony have three, four and five were the emperors dragons. You got killed if you drew a dragon with five claws. =P

2005-12-23 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah, another good (metaphysical) dragon book, Dancing With Dragons, by DJ conway, talks about the cultural history of lots of dragons... a 5-toed (emperial) dragon was illigeal to own/draw, etc by anyone but royalty

2005-12-23 [ArchangelGabriel]: Now that sounds useful. I'm sure we have a page for intresting books with draogns in, if you find it you could add it to the list...

2006-01-10 [Ladyeternalflame]: Has anyone here read Eragon, by Chris Paolini? There is also the sequel, Eldest. both books are about boys who find dragon eggs, the eggs hatch into baby dragon and they become dragon riders. I haven't read Eldest yet, still working on the Chronicles of Narnia.

2006-01-10 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: i have read both Eragon books (and the Chronicles of Narnia) All are very good.

2006-01-13 [nunt]: I'm on the third narnia book, and Eragon is on my list.

2006-01-13 [Penguinlord]: narnia is best in teh middle, the horse and his boy, voyage of the dawn treader. The last two are... strange...

2006-01-13 [ArchangelGabriel]: narnia was one of the first books i'd ever read...

2006-01-13 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: same here.

2006-01-16 [grey wanderer]: Ooh...the moves...*tears away* Must look at rest of sight!

2006-01-20 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: i just saw the new narnia movie tuesday night.

2006-01-20 [BlackDragon]: I didn't like that movie..

2006-01-21 [innolongerhere]: was a diffrent...iv heard that it was better than the lord of the rings trilogy...but i say other wise...the movie was good ill give it that...but not great...

2006-01-21 [BlackDragon]: I thought it was silly... the graphics were great, but the way the characters behaved.. ><

2006-01-22 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: the graphics were what hooked me, but i think they had to keep it a little juvenile because schools like thatone and go on field trips... second graders need to understand it...

2006-01-23 [nunt]: Anyone seen Reighn of Fire? That was a brilliant film just because of the dragons. They were awesome.

2006-01-24 [ArchangelGabriel]: Yay for a film set in the british isles. Non of the wishy-washy american towns. ;-)

2006-01-24 [Nani Nene]: Reign of fire was a great movie. :D

2006-01-25 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah, too bad they killed the dragons...but they were comparing dragons reproductive to fish, so killing the male wouldnt necessarily kill the species... some fish (saltwater angelfish) a single male rules a harem, and if he dies, a female will change gender and become the male...

2006-01-25 [Shadowsoul]: ooo interesting

2006-01-25 [nunt]: Tey were still pretty awesome dragons.

2006-01-25 [Nani Nene]: how many different type of dragons are there?

2006-01-26 [nunt]: thare are as many as you want there to be

2006-01-26 [ArchangelGabriel]: Try having a look in the Dragon Handbook

2006-01-27 [BlackDragon]: haha, good answer nunt =)

2006-01-28 [malcolm scott]: you guys suck

2006-01-28 [Nani Nene]: well, i did..and I also have this book at home. Its quite amazing actually.

2006-01-28 [Nani Nene]: have anyone read the book...."The Lesser Kindred" There are a couple of others...but just wow. the imagery and such. The Kantri is their name....

2006-01-28 [BlackDragon]: Imagination [malcolm scott], imagination.. *gives him a tea cup of it*

2006-01-29 [nunt]: thanks [BlackDragon]

2006-01-30 [Shadowsoul]: *smiles* it is good you are all getting along for once

2006-01-30 [kabutali]: *has mental breakdown* AH! Gone for a few months and every one is all jolly and such?! What is the world coming too? (well it can't be peace. Y.Y) All these new people. Eep! I haven't said hello. *ahem* HELLO! Konnichiwa! Aloha! Hola! Guten tak! Ect. *bows* Hmmm. tea. Did anyone bring the cookies? Or some scones will do, yes? Better yet! Krumpits!

2007-12-31 [Sillydeadweight]: I haven't been able to celibrate newyear since the last drunk accident I had a few years ago, however, I think I need to learn to face my fears and stuff. So, I will be drinking, probally alot.

2008-01-02 [Nani Nene]: :D WHOOOO

so what did you guys drink?

I had mucho RUM

2008-01-02 [Nani Nene]: and i have to ask --- <Sillydeadweight> what happened on your last drunk adventure a few years ago?

2008-09-01 [ArchangelGabriel]: Wow, it's been months since anything happened here, sorry it's taken me so long to come back online, kinda got caught up in the real world. It's a nasty place with stuff like work and commitment, bah to it.

2008-09-01 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah, I hear you. Real life sucks.

2008-09-01 [NuclearHobbit]: Life does indeed suck.

2008-09-01 [ArchangelGabriel]: 46 messages *dies* I think i'll leave those till tomorrow.

2008-09-01 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah.
I would too.

2008-09-02 [ArchangelGabriel]: 48 now :P

2008-09-02 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: I'll refrain from sending you a message just to see if you can get 50.

2008-09-02 [ArchangelGabriel]: Turns out of course i've got nearly a years worth of weekly messages about things that i wanted reminding about :P

2008-09-03 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: I guess it could have been worse.

2008-09-03 [ArchangelGabriel]: Oh it certainly could have been ^_^

2008-09-03 [Nani Nene]: Long time no see -- how is everyone?

2008-09-04 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: life's a roller coaster - up, and down, and up again. You?

2008-09-08 [Nani Nene]: same. Just super busy now that Im back to going to ASU! And plus trying to find another job!

2008-09-08 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: Yeah, paying bills means having two jobs for me, and still doesn't quite do the job.

2008-09-11 [Nani Nene]: stupid bills

2008-09-12 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah. I moved down here last year, and my general opinion has been, job is nice, company is nice, but neither one pays the bills. (moved down here to be with BF/husband)

2008-09-13 [Nani Nene]: where do you live now? and where did you move from?

2008-09-14 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: Live in Florida now, from Michigan

2008-09-16 [Nani Nene]: how do you like it?

2008-09-16 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: Michigan was much better. Florida is too warm, too sticky, and the people here are lunatics.

2008-09-19 [Aura Darklight]: i kind of liked living in flordia probably because i was near the beach however i agree about it being hot down there bet it is a big change over michigan

2008-09-19 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: yeah, I miss the cold north, the snow and freezing.

2008-10-01 [Nani Nene]: Ive never been to either. . . .

2008-10-02 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: You aren't missing much in Florida unless you like plagues of mosquitoes, intermitten flooding, hurricanes, high humidity, cockroaches, expensive car insurance, and disgustingly hot weather. I honestly don't know why people ever decided to settle this swamp...

2008-10-02 [Nani Nene]: Ya-- doesnt sound like to much fun. considering im from hawaii and now living in arizona

2008-10-03 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: I'm not sure Hawaii would be any better. Never been there. At least Arizona would be dry heat, not this stifling humid stuff.

2008-10-06 [Nani Nene]: lol. Its starting to get cold in Arizona. and Hawaii is beautiful. :)

2009-01-26 [Ukia]: Hawaii was settled long before Europeans came to the Americas. Their knowledge of the local sharks is amazing. 

2009-02-18 [Nani Nene]: very true

2009-05-04 [Aura Darklight]: I've never been to Hawaii or Arizona though my Uncle likes visiting them both

2009-07-28 [Ukia]: A constant traveller, eh? 

2010-01-26 [Aura Darklight]: I wo9uld prefer humid heat otherwise i can not breathe
