I'm trying to stagger them so that I don't assault anyone's inbox. I will get to them within the day!

Uncommon traits only! (see below to read about obtaining oddity traits)
NO Mutations allowed (unless earned - see below)
NO Elders allowed
Must be a member of Cache-Dragons
to enter (membership is always open!)
Entries must be submitted to the Contest Entry group folder
by May 3rd in order to be counted!
Any medium is accepted as long as the design is clearly visible (fully colored) and all guidelines are followed
There will be 2 winners for every 10 entries, one for best design and one for most creative cache type! Artistic skill is not the primary interest here. Be creative!
Limit of 3 entries per person! You may submit 3 Cache Dragons but you can only win once, though you are allowed to buy the others at the end if you wish (see below)
You must choose a cache type! Meaning you have to decide what kind of thing your Cache Dragon collects. This can be very specific (such as apples, pillows, grasshoppers) or very broad (such as fruit, soft things, insects) as long as by some logic, they can be fit into a category. This is a vital part of your Cache Dragon's design! You don't HAVE to show it in your image, but it must at least be specified in your description. They must be corporeal objects, as Elders are not allowed for this contest. Please do not trace my art.
If you're having trouble drawing them, you're welcome to ask a friend for help or even have someone draw you a base, but having my stuff traced without my permission makes me very uncomfortable, and be aware that I will be able to tell.Earning Traits
1 oddity trait (shown in red in the trait guide) can be earned through advertising this contest via journal or poll! Please link that journal or poll below in a comment and I will add your name to that list.
Mutations can be earned through getting 2 people to enter the contest. Simply have the people you referred include your name in their entry's description. Once you reach 2, link those entries in the comments below for me to check and you will be added to the mutation list. Referrals don't count until they actually submit an entry! If you're kind of relying on a mutation for your Cache Dragon's design but don't want to wait around for your referrals to enter, draw them without the mutation for the entry and either show an alternate mutated version or edit in the mutation later. Just note that the mutated version won't count as official until the referrals enter. You can always buy the mutation at the end.
*A note about mutations and markings - Cache Dragons do not have any specific rules for markings/colors, I just ask that you don't write actual words or anything silly like that on them.
Mutations are classified as any change in the Cache Dragon's original appearance as a result of hoarding. A Cache Dragon born with flowery markings may decide to collect flowers and therefor appear themed, but unless he was born with different markings and later developed the flower pattern as a result of the flower collecting, it doesn't count as a mutation. Flowers growing on the body however would always be considered a mutation, since they could not have been born that way. I ask that you not deliberately try to take advantage of this and attempt to skirt the mutation ticket requirement. Just don't be a weenie about it.
