Lesson 1: Dragon healthcare


Dragon Age: 0 days – 1 month

Examine your dragon and get familiar with him/her.

Topics covered in lessons:

  • How much your dragonet needs to eat
    Pounds of Meat Consumed by Age
  • How to butcher a wherry and a herdbeast carcass
  • Communicating with your dragonet
  • How to wash and oil your dragonet
  • How fast your dragon will grow
    Weyrling Dragon Body Lengths by Age
    Dragon Relative Anatomical Sizes
    Weyrling Dragon Weight by Age

Mini-Lesson:

Your first day as a weyrling, starting at the 3am feeding.

RP Ideas:

  • Bonding/learning to communicate with your dragonet
    • Telling the difference between your feelings/needs and your dragonet's
    • Sharing images of places and people mentally with your dragonet
    • Learning to separate your thoughts and your dragonet's so you're not constantly "talking" to each other
  • Butchering carcasses - sharing duty with other weyrlings
  • Bathing and oiling your dragonet
  • Get-to-know-you activities with other weyrlings
  • Example first-time experiences with your dragon: bathing, oiling, feeding, trying new foods, watching the weather or the stars, conversations with each other and other dragons, etc.
  • Young dragon ‘accidents’, be it minor injuries, excretory control, overeating, etc.
  • Practice bandaging each other and/or your dragonets during First Aid class
  • Weyrlings are between the size of a large dog and a pony and extremely clumsy at first; by the end of their first month, they are the size of large draft horses
