Secret of EWF Reincarnation Eggs
Below is not exactly the same writings in Original Glorantha Digest (02/01/14)
Please think about Aim of True Golden Horde and Cause of Dragonkill War. Their quest was for Extinction of Dragonrace after EWF automatically assassinated their own human leaders under the inhumane order of Inhuman King and "Minarian Memory Removal" (and Some Humanic Dragon Essence Salvaged as Dragon Sun.)
In my humble opinion, Eggs of dragon nest are recycled for many uses of immature Dragonewts as Space Shuttle of NASA : My imagination made eggshell shape of Gas Tank like divided easily by strong hand to two accurate domeshell.
<<Yes, the egg lasts as long as it takes the 'newt to evolve.>>
<<That's a very neat idea! Considering Dragonnewts as mystics, is the egg a piece of the eternal, changeless transcendent world? I have been swept up in the concept that the Dragon Egg is the actual creature and that the Dragonnewt is a projected viewpoint for the egg to perceive the world... like a conscious Dream Dragon. The egg gains knowledge, experience, and perspective on the world, improving it's mystic status until it transforms into the final dragon form. The number of newt bodies is unimportant, the time required is meaningless (especially if the egg could ingest nutrition), and the only reason to care about the death of an old body is to recover valuable properties and magics. Priceless image, totally YGMV. >>
True Golden Horde Generals involved many professional Dragon Slayers and plotted their mythological stream swallowing Dragonpass area. But as many cases of such heroquest, some fault made fatal and serious damage to that plan, and True Dragons awakened from non-REM deep sleep.
See Dragon Pantheon: Cosmic Dragon grasped Orxili and tore off six legs (In My Opinion, these are six aspects of chaos: Void, Entropy, Hunger, Gorp, Evil, Seduction (Book of Drastic Resolution: Chaos) later it became to Six Elements of Dragon Pantheon Silence, Secret, Being, Experience, Thought and Spirit) and used his body as source of Cosmic Egg. Two Eggshells after used became Inside and Outside.
(See also Lords of Terror: Who is Gbaji?)
IMO, if Dara Happan Intervention to God Project had not been occured, Osentalka became Dragonewt or other Dragonraces (As in RQ con2 documented) : Pseudo Cosmic Egg (already some hints this condition) was discovered in Ruby Harbor of Fildichi Ruin (I don't know where it was in Dorastor inland) This Egg was World In World, Inside of Chaos, Impossible, etc...
Subject: What is Dragonewt eating? What is the shape of their Body?
It's also my optional Idea, Many dragons are able to fly without Batlike Wings: with their Magical Existence. If applied physics welcomed, they can never fly.
Their Spiritual Evolution made their body varied: As Eastern RW dragon, some dragons don't have Wings. Dragonewt who is always angry (or Spiritual need urged him as so) have Blood-Red Eye. While who always be cool (cruel?) would have pale blue color.
Some Dragonewts have Nuclear Electronic Battery in their body without Risk of Explosion: some Dragonewts have digest system enable to eat Soil as Uz: some Noble Dragonewts eat only Caviars, Expensive Cheese, Matsutake for their Spiritual Needs. [Really silly ideas....(2003 / Sep)]
This event occured at 1042 (just before Minarian Memory Removal) Northern Kerofinela:
(The interview translated from Auld Wyrmish, of course, imperfectly)
Hello, I'm Serim Goodwind, an initiate of Obduran Dragonfriend and Walzing and Hunting Band, and here is my friend Warrior Dragonewt, Crashing Beaks.
"WE COME HERE BECAUSE Cult of Half Dragon Mystics ORDERED one mission TO US"
My tongue is forked long, and my scales ring like a steel coin, but there is no problem as an EWF citizen. Here is usual Difference list of I and my friend:
1: We cannot speak AW fluently, it requires Tail and other sensible organs we don't have: Our Fault, but transformation will absorb this problem and our difference.
"YES, YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SCALE AND TAIL, BUT NO PROBLEM."
2: We have some Merit in studying mystical Draconism. (this head idea was in accordance with older Sandy Petersen's unofficial Rule, but IMO his idea mechanically too solved Dragonewt's inhumanity and suited GS's Dragon Pantheon description) We already have much dragon essence than my Friend, Our Merit.
"NO, YOU CANNOT USE DRACONIC MAGIC IF YOU WANT TO GAIN MORE DRACONIC ESSENCE. "
3: What is (Minarian) Memory?
"THIS POINT I DESCRIPT YOUR CONDITION, OK?"
"EYE'S INHUMANKING ADMINISTRATES AND WATCHES HUMAN COMRADES OF OUROBOROS."
"But you aren't watched? Why? Why apostle Dragonewts aren't punished under IHK order?"
"BECAUSE WE BELIEVE AND TRUST UTTERLY DRACONIC WAY, BUT YOUR HUMAN PART AND DRAGON PART ARE SEPARATED. SO IT IS BOTH YOUR MERIT AND FAULT AT SAME TIME. "
We human can bore children, but Friend Dragonewt's life is long cycle of death and reincarnate with memory. Immature DN Eggs are constantly decreased after almost all Dragons leave surface world. (In my opinion, Gloranthan Humans don't see their Children as Real World humans: they are ancsestor worshippers but they rather have weaker desire for their immortality sense, they want another sense of immortality.) Because this is breakable. I think this is our Merit.
5: Reincanation Egg
By the way, what is our mission? Friend? You haven't teach me until we came here.
"WE WILL TRY HERE TO KAMIKAZE ATTACK TO OLD DAY TRADITIONALISTS. THIS IS REVENGE OF DRAGON SUN."
Oh no! We must be killed!
"NO PROBLEM! DRAGON ESSENCE IS FOREVER EVEN IF YOU AND I ADMIT REBELS TO BREAK EGGS, AS COSMIC SPIRIT WE'LL SURVIVE!
What is the Final Fate of Dragon Sun? He was killed by Karvanyar.
