Mana flows like a current through this glassy egg.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It doesn’t seem all that interested in you.

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It doesn’t seem all that interested in you.

And look! It has gotten bigger! And it has definitely developed a lot of different features. It must be close to maturing.


The Staterae is an ancient species of wyrm thought to be the origin of all Xenowyrms. It has long been considered to have gone extinct as its kind has not been seen in many millennia. Recent sightings, while rare, have confirmed that this species still lives in a variety of different environments. While most of its distant offspring have adapted down to single environments, this behemoth retains many of the diverse characteristics of each of them. Staterae pay no mind to lesser creatures, often avoiding contact completely and remain extremely enigmatic. Their magics are not well understood beyond being immensely powerful, and there are those that consider them to be divine beings.

Xenowyrms are capable of producing any Xenowyrm variety when bred. Which variety will be produced is influenced by the Xenowyrm parent's variety and the biome of a non-Xenowyrm partner.[1]

Staterae Xenowyrm x non-Xenowyrm (from biome) may produce:

  • Staterae Xenowyrm
  • Non-Xenowyrm parent's breed
  • One of the Xenowyrm varieties found in the non-Xenowyrm parent's biome

Staterae Xenowyrm x non-Xenowyrm (bred, Market, or Cave biome) may produce:

  • Staterae Xenowyrm
  • Non-Xenowyrm parent's breed
  • Any of the other Xenowyrm varieties

Staterae Xenowyrm x Xenowyrm may produce:

  • Staterae Xenowyrm
  • Partner Xenowyrm's variety
  • Any of the other Xenowyrm varieties

Additionally a Staterae Xenowyrm can be produced when breeding any Xenowyrm to another Xenowyrm or to a non-Xenowyrm dragon.

Additional information[]

Xenowyrm 5th anniversary

Exactly five years ago (well, from the posting of this thread, anyhow!) -- June 27th, 2015 -- the original Xenowyrms were released.

The Gaia, Astrapi, Chrono, Pyro, Thalassa, and Mageia were those six wyrm children that were released upon Galsreim!

I genuinely never really thought that they would come to be enjoyed so much, especially five whole years later.

I hope you guys enjoy the new six to complete the elemental set: the Umbra, Aquilo, Obidar, Ke'maro, Aso, and Pharos. Some are friendly, some are not-so-friendly. 🙂

And... of course, the big wyrm in the room: the Staterae Xenowyrm, the original ancient dragon that branched off into all the different subspecies we have today.

It's been really fun reading the thread, and seeing the discussion in Discord about these guys and this release. (And the surprise when someone bred the first Staterae...!)

I'm glad to have the opportunity to create these dragons, and I look forward to seeing what cool lineage projects you all have in mind going forward!

So to wrap up... I just wanted to say, thank you for making the five-year anniversary of the Xenowyrms special!
