Hatching 5: "Time to buckle our swash!"

With the last group of hatchlings Impressed and safe with their life mates, the rain, which had trickled off to a slower drizzle began to pick up its pace once more. The steady patter of drops became louder as the water actually fell in steady streams in some spots and one of those streams splashed steadily at the Smithcrafter's Delight Egg.

Hatching 2: "You took my hat. I *like* my hat.."

And with the first four dragons hatched and impressed things were only starting to heat up. Ormanth was doing her best to block the worst of the water dripping down from the leaky shutters above, but it was raining harder now and there just wasn't enough room for the gold to maneuver and protect all of the Sands. In one area, towards the farther end, away from the Queen, a nice sized hole had opened up and water poured in loudly. The water was landing almost smack dab on the Polished Stone egg and making quite the raucous noise as it rocked the egg a bit back and forth.

Hatching 1: Everyday's a nice day with friends...or cookies

As Ormanth's humming grew louder, the rain that had been threatening all day opened into a good steady rain. Candidates and onlookers struggling in, looked more and more drenched by the tick. Even the poor Hatchlings were going to be victims of the falling liquid. New shutters had been installed in the roof of the cavern not so long before and they had been installed incorrectly -- they were already showing signs of leaking. With the caverns buzzing with excitement and the rain as background music, the dampness could be overlooked as the first egg started to crack.
