What I'm trying to ask is shouldn't there of been more dragons in the wild to start with when the Archons where first sent to scout for dragons? Or did the dragons only start popping when Hamster thought of the possibility? Or do dragons left untamed for a set amount of terms disband? Excuse me if this has been brought up before.
Lord Kasavin wrote:The way feral Dwagons were first described, it sounds like they pop one turn, and disband the next. The obvious explanation for disbanding is a feral Dwagon has no way to pay its upkeep. Hence, there are on average three dwagons somewhere in the mountain hexes on any given turn. If they are not tamed they disband and three (on average) dwagons pop randomly once again.
joosy wrote:It comes down to basic upkeep. Unless a flock of sheep or other 'upkeep' pops within 56 move of the dwagon (and it finds and defeats/eats it) it can't survive on that turn. The odds of survival for most units, even barbarians, are apparently pretty low unless they are able to find ways to sustain themselves with provisions, gems, edible units, etc.

jabbersocky wrote:The idea that units already in the area decrees chance of units popping could be applicable here. Like marbits and gobwins the presence of a number of dragons in the area means others can't pop. (This of course would only work if that particular theory is true).
