So I was bored today, so I played minecraft. then I thought to myself, how cool would yor own dragon be? So I game up with this great idea.
Ya know when you defeat the dragon, all you get is experience and a way back home, well there needs to be more to defeating a dragon, like that egg it leaves, but you can't pick it up. Well if you have a certain item like a sword you can pick it up. Then you can bring it to the surface. So you place the egg somewhere and if you don't mess with it for 2 days, a dragon will hatch. You can feed and tame the dragon with flesh. If the dragon is tamed, the eyes will be green instead of purple. After 7 minecraft days, the dragon should be fully grown. If you get a saddle, you can actually ride the dragon. And tamed dragons won't destroy blocks
I saw a thread about this back in December 2010, it was a lot better than this one. Good idea, just kind of went about it lazily though.
Adding a picture of what it would look like and how it would affect gameplay, SMP mode and the likeliness of balance would be nice too.
