Me too. Anyway, to clarify what I said above: I was speaking of foreshadowing. No dragons appear in b1, yet in b2: suddenly there's a dragon skeleton, making dragons not just legend but an actual [former?] reality.

Former reality if the skeleton they put together was an actual beast, and not something made up of bits of skeletons of other things. :)

I hope that's not true.

FWIW, I did not get that impression from the skeleton in the Lockston basement - I don't recall any indication that this skeleton was the "last" dragon.

I don't think there was any in-game info. It's just that in our own, contemporary world we don't normally put up a skeleton of a creature we still see around us everyday, but if a creature has become extinct we are much more likely to preserve the bones and put them on display.
That's probably what caused Dragonlady's idea.

Only information in game is from the plaque that reads: "Draco Pyrus Destructus: Unearthed in Barrea, age of remains unknown."

Well, my guess would be that dragons are possible but not probable. The bones in Port K are from Barrea, and Book III is probably set in the islands to the east like Wylderan. That tricky BW could be setting us up for a T Rex sort of surprise - who knows?

Well, I'd just like to say that my character doesn't believe in dragons.

Now I'm imagining Evnissyen standing in front of a dragon with his eyes squeezed shut repeating, "There are no dragons, there are no dragons, there are no dragons..." and the dragon patiently waiting with a hungry grin.

So, we know a couple of things since BW posted his latest update on the news page.

First, his team is bigger. We don't know whether the new help is for Book III or for another project. At some point (a long time ago) BW mentioned wishing he could afford some help with the graphics part of game design. Maybe that has come to pass?

Book III won't be out this year. Since I absolutely cannot wait for Book III I am totally crushed and decimated - but not terribly surprised. Maybe early next year?

Best news - everyone is working hard on new games. Yes to that good news!!!

On what are you basing this? I must admit - I didn't see anything anywhere to imply a timeline of dev...

Ah, I see where you got this now - the front page.

BW has to be sure to crosspost stuff like that to these forums, or at least put up a post with a message telling us to check the front page!! (Some of us hang out primarily in these forums, and don't check the front page often, after all! :roll: :P )

One person that's not gonna lose any sleep about it is me. I still remember that Book II originally was scheduled for release early 2009, but it took well over a year longer. Book III hasn't even been announced yet.
Just wake me up in 2014 and tell me the score!

Hmmmm....

Continuing with the "are there dragons in Book III" theme. There is clothing made of "ancient dragon skin" in Book II. So, the skins exist, but are not new. Hmmmm, methinks that dragons are looking like a real possibility.

...or else they're fakes; the gloves are really made of lizard skin.

Hmmm......Ancient dragon skin gloves could be really old dragon skin gloves or they could be brand spanking gloves made from a freshly killed ancient dragon.
