You walk along a passage until you come into a small chamber. The first thing that strikes you is that it's incredibly hot. The second is that the room seems to be lit from an unseen source. A young girl with chestnut coloured hair and brilliant blue eyes stands up and smiles warmly at you.
"Greetings. My name is Alhena. Welcome to the Hatchery...this is where any egg-born animals-except dragons-stay until ready to go to their new homes. Right now, all we have is a clutch of Everondian firedraces. We're very pleased to have it-it was Dragon Moon who provided the firedraces. Incidentally, you should check that site out-it has some really cool things, like Ganra adoptions."
"What's a Ganra?" you ask.
"Ah, well, if you want to know, best just visit the site," Alhena says cryptically. "Trust me, it's well worth a look. But anyway, to get back to the main point, here's where you can to try and bond an Everondian firedrace." Alhena holds out an arm and a golden drace flies down onto it.
"This is Silra, the mother to our present clutch of firedraces. She's a little protective of her eggs, so be careful, 'kay?"
"Okay," you agree.
"So," Alhena finishes, "would you like to bond a firedrace? Or do you want to go back?"
