    Probably? They haven't covered that yet. Might be in the Dragon Companion (we did unlocked Greater Wyrms, which are likely Divine Tier Dragons)instead of this book.
    Dragons don't have Incarnations the way Gods or Titans do, but they also don't have Mantles.
    It might be possible for an Heir to claim enough Inheritance and memory through to 'become' a second version of a living Dragon (and if they still share memories, it might be more like a second body for that Dragon).

    Looking at the first part of the Flights chapter manuscript, the fact that Flight is it’s own form of Dragon Magic is odd, since 1: that is a really specific thing, and 2: man the Flight Boon from Sky is going to be really outdated

    Looking at the newest update, it looks like there are regular purviews and Mythos purviews. So, Darkness stays Darkness, but Dream is most likely a Mythos purview, which is fueled with Awareness instead of Legend. If a Mythos scion has access to Darkness, they would need to use Legend to fuel it. (All of this is assuming Dream is a Mythos purview.)

    We're only through half the initial Flights, lots more round to cover.
    You’re thinking of Monster. Don’t worry, I initially thought the same thing.

    New Dragon Callings are hinted at: Predator, Collector, Watcher, Nomad, Ruler, and Mystic. In addition, both Destroyer and Primeval are invoked from Titanomachy.

    (I’m more willing to believe that Ruler isn’t a typo where they meant Leader, given that it appears in two separate write-ups. Still, it’ll be interesting to see how the devs can make this new Calling distinct from either Leader or Tyrant.)

    Dragons also have an intriguing connection to Luck magic, which I’m looking forward to seeing. I will leave the references to the Neverending Story to others. They also have Understanding as a possible power, which is intriguing.

    New preview is up! Nessie is a dragon parent. I'm both stunned and delighted

    Dreams are currently cover by darkness only because of the core perviews its the most thematically appropriate. That does not and never has implied that darkness has exclusive influence over dreams. That is what the Dream perview is for.
    are you familiar with the term “air breathing mermaid”? It’s a term for a power or knack/merit/whatever in an rpg that by being introduced implicitly makes characters less powerful. The term comes from a purchasable merit in some game to let mermaids breath air after nothing in the book to that point had suggested they could not breath air. The merit existing suggested that characters who hadn’t bought it could not breath air, while if it had not been included that would have been assumed to be automatic and free.

    When you already establish that Darkness covers the concepts of dreams and sleep (not just dreams about darkness, but all dreams) and then introduce a separate Dream purview and thus have to define the concepts that Darkness doesn’t cover (like all the emotions that Fire doesn’t cover but Passion does), you are pulling an Air-Breathing Mermaid on every
    one using Darkness to play a Dream wielding Scion.

    unless of course Dream is a specialized Purview ala the rules in he companion. Then we’re fine.

    I'm all in favor of “God-tier dragons”.

    Or the Mythos might be a very nasty set of Titans that might explain why the Titans we think of have been quiet. They've been very busy keeping the Mythos under wraps.

    One of Dionysus’s lesser-known myths involves dolphins. That, when combined with the dark enlightenment themes and the description of Albtraum’s underwater temple, makes me think of Albtraum as hiding behind such a comparison.
    Wow! Thanks.

    I will mention that Robert E. Howard's Conan stories and its Hyborian setting are tangentally connected to the Mythos, as are a number of his other works (Kull of Atlantis, Bran Mac Morn, etc.), so the idea of heroically pulpish adventurers fighting aspects of the Mythos with swords, arcane lore and other tools isn't unprecedented.
    Additng those to inspirations lists for all instances of Horror from Outer Space series.
