Player Dragon Commands

Player-dragons are where a different player than the dragon's rider plays the part of the dragon. It's not a separate character; the pdragon character can also be a harper or holder or whatever. You control the dragon the same as any other puppet. This adds a twist to dragonriding - the dragon and the rider are controlled by seperate people, which means they can interact in new and interesting ways!

One way to find a player dragon is to @subscribe to *pdr-request and read through the applications. You'll want to take some time to think about what you want — this isn't something to jump heads first in! Another way to find a player dragon is to ask a friend whom you know and trust and who has similar hours to yours.

Player-dragon commands

First, you should add a puppet code for your dragon. Please read 'help CU' for info on this. Basically you should just '@addfl <code>=<dragon#>', thereafter you can do 'cd<code> <action>' to make the dragon look, pose, etc.

think <message> lets you send a private message to your rider.

Read 'help dtu' for the various dtu commands. You cannot envision, though; the rider must envision between dests for you.

If you ever get spammed and want to turn off listening to the dragon, add a .quiet property to yourself, and set it to 1.

A hint to riders with pdragons: set the dragon's .puppet prop to 0 to avoid spammage when your pdragon looks around.

If you are new and joining an adult dragon/rider, you'll have to learn everything the rider learned during weyrling training. Have your rider teach you about formations and such.
