Dust: An Elysian Tale
Angels With Scaley Wings (a story about otherkin and humans)
(This one game I couldn't think of that has an owl and some expansions associated with it and an epic storyline)

edited footnote: Ori and the Blind Forest - Amazing story and music, beautiful artwork, built on the classic MetroidVania format, good challenge.
 (it was that one XD)

General Discussion / Re: Where do we go from here?

We actually have a discord permalink up and running, it's been running for about half a year now.

As for our moderators and administration team, it's being carefully selected by both snugglers and people who are usually warm, friendly and open as to disperse the previous air from DR 1.0

edited note:  It is also highly encouraged people start using the voice chat since IRC didn't really give us much option to work with aside from text...wouldn't really make much of a point just using Discord as a visual IRC posting images, and videos...  would also help us moderate more on a real time basis

Otherkin and Beliefs / Re: Discord Servers, Otherkin and general bullshittery

I have, on a site called Therian Wilderness and on a site run by an ex-friend of mine. From my experience TW is a place that practically demands a clear explanation of your otherkin self right off the bat. They tell newbies to "expect to have questions asked about your otherkin/therian identity". I've had alot of practice explaining my otherkin identity to people so I didn't get very many questions but many people who are new to otherkin communities or unsure of their identity have been grilled for answers for weeks sometimes months after joining. I'm pretty much an outcast there now because I wanted to make friends over there (alot of the replies I got tell me they take the view of "I don't care, you're just text on a screen.") and I'm a spiritual kin which doesn't agree with alot of their definition of what it is to be otherkin. The other site owned by my ex-friend is one he got me to join claiming it was open to dragons but after a few months I started getting bashed on because he and the other admins didn't like my dragon identity not conforming to their specifications and me having a real life outside of being on their forum. I was banned for not being there enough while taking care of my grandfather who had dimentia and being away while I was moving across the country after he died. I was let back in with the understanding I would never deal with such bullshit or have an otherkin belief or identity that was equally so ever again. Mostly I just agreed with them so I could keep an eye on how they were treating some of my friends who wanted to stay despite what was going on. Anyways the site owner there is no longer my friend as he had his wife come track us down on different otherkin related sites and used our posts on other sites against us.

Though most sites are not like that it's still hard to find good ones out there. Draconity.org I've found is a good one and on Google+ the admin from alt.fan.dragons forum has made a good group called Therian/Otherkin Community. I actually don't think most of the community knows what it wants yet so there are many sites catering to only a few or one type of kin or method of otherkin identity. Draconity.org has gotten some undeserved comments offsite about it being "Just for dragons", something which is totally not true and is mostly said by people who've never been there and is based on the sites name. It's really open to everyone dragon and non-dragon alike.

I'm not really expecting to get much out of being here. I was part of the original Dragon Realms up to almost the end. I felt pushed out by all the drama and flaming going on there and found myself frequently the target of such battles. I was going through a hard time back then but even so what I got for my troubles was mostly alot of heated drama and people messaging me in private saying how displeased they were with the site. If I was to make a suggestion my one and only one is that steps are taken to prevent this sort of thing from hapening here on the new site.

Most communities I'm looking to make friends and hang out. I like a place where everyone can feel welcome whether they're new to otherkin communities in general or been around awhile. I'd also like to see a section of the forum for questions about or getting help with ones otherkin identity. From what I've seen this has become a bigger issue on other sites and frequently gets lost in other topics leading to the person needing help getting very few or sometimes no replies.

A Discord chat would be nice to have as it's the most recent platform for gaming and chat right now. The main problem with forums going silent comes usually from people either forgetting the place is around, thinking the site is dead, or just loosing interest. I'd like to have a place where I can come back to and find friends to chat with. Most of the problems I've run into over the years from the community either come from excessive heated drama being directed at me, loosing contact with friends then not being able to find them again, and getting labeled or branded without being given the chance to explain things. Not sure what else to put here. I may figure out more as time goes by. No problems with debates and such I just get tired of dealing with hot heads all the time and seeing very little to no effort being put in to stop a verbal flaming war on certain sites.

I am Ikthyrion/Ikthillion/Ikkies. I'm pretty odd and mostly lurk in chats. I love kitties. They are my reason for existence. So soft and fluffy...

Shen Long I see why Kari left now. And I have an understanding of why some of the senior members are leaving. I wasn't expecting that.
