Celestial Dragons were released on April 1, 2016. They have the Breed Specific Action Corporealize, which allows them to change from the translucent incorporeal forms to corporeal ones. The egg itself has a unique cracking sequence where it cracks to show the hatchling within.

Official descriptions[]


This translucent egg shines like starlight.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. Its markings give off an otherworldly light.

Mature hatchling[]

And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.


Despite their great size and strength, Celestial Dragons are a peaceful breed named for their spectral, starry appearance. Little else is known about them, as they spend the vast majority of their lives partially phased out of the plane of existence through the use of powerful magic. Celestial Dragons are thought to assume their corporeal form only long enough to reproduce or to die; the rest of the time, they resemble living, breathing constellations, impervious to all physical and magical harm.

Incorporeal Celestials and Celestial eggs are semi-transparent, and will appear slightly different depending on the color of their background.

Temporary alternate[]

Growing Celestials display the corporeal form. Once a hatchling becomes an adult or is frozen, it becomes incorporeal. While incorporeal, Celestial Dragons cannot be bred, killed, or released. Celestials may remain corporeal for up to a week after using Corporealize, and the action has a 28 day cooldown. As Celestials can only be bred once in that 28-day period, they may produce up to four eggs from a single breeding.

Variant Available actions

  • There was a great deal of confusion about the eggs upon release, concerning the April 1st date and that there was already a release just two weeks prior. Some people were worried that the eggs would disappear from their scrolls or change into common species.
  • The constellation patterns found on their body were not based on any single real life constellations.[1]

Basic Anatomy:
Celestial dragons are massive, solidly-built creatures that are every bit as physically imposing as they appear. In their corporeal form their dense hide feels like suede to the touch, with regular patterns of bioluminescent blue markings on a field of midnight-purple, all of which fades to a ghostly, transparent blue when the dragon phases out. They develop a distinctive jawline and bony horns as they age; a shapely jaw and large, symmetrical horns are thought to advertise an individual's superior health and fitness to potential mates. They have large, expansive wings well-adapted to soaring for long periods of time at high altitudes. While incorporeal, their bodies can pass straight through object and organism alike, causing a sensation of walking through a warm draft of air, though doing so intentionally is considered in poor taste.

Celestials are intelligent, frighteningly powerful practitioners of magic. Because they spend the vast majority of their existence in an ethereal, invulnerable state, however, they are peaceful, patient creatures that customarily have no fear of predators or concern for territorial threats offered by other organisms. They seem to show aggression only when guarding their young, which are helpless until they grow strong enough to become incorporeal themselves. Once they do so, they will only resume their physical form in order to breed or when grievous illness leaves them too weak to use their own magic any longer. They are exceptionally hard to see in their incorporeal form during the day, giving rise to a mistaken assumption that they are purely nocturnal; in fact, they seem to show no preference for day or night, and simply sleep whenever the mood strikes them. Celestial dragons are nomadic and predominantly solitary, able to cross vast distances without landing. Despite this, they maintain a healthy, structured social life, forming and maintaining lasting bonds with others of their kind by congregating in small groups at ideal basking areas and engaging in animated philosophical debates. They have never been known to have disputes over territory or differences of opinion; if a celestial tires of her present company, she simply moves on.

Celestial dragons do not eat solid food, so they need not corporealize to feed. Most of the cells in a Celestial dragon's body, both internal and external, are light-sensitive and photosynthetic, allowing them to feed quite efficiently in their celestial form even on dim starlight. When preparing to breed, both male and female Celestials will spend large swaths of the day basking lazily in the sunlight in order to stockpile energy.

Celestial dragons seem capable of withstanding any climate as long as the area has enough clear-sky weather to facilitate their need to bask.
