The Fire Flight is one of the 11 Elemental Flights in Flight Rising.
AboutEditThe Ashfall Waste are metalworkers. They prefer to be as passionate and intense as the flames they coax. Of all the dragons, Fire dragons are the most temperamental, and their red-hot fury knows no peer. Rare metal ores, weapons, statues, and tools are their favored treasures.
The Fire Flight is centralized in the Ashfall Waste. The land consists of four regions: Emberglow Hearth, Molten Scar, Blacksand Annex and the Great Furnace. The Waste is bordered by the Ice, Wind, Water, and Lightning Flight territories.
|In the northern region of fire, the magma vents are gentle and free of the volatile pressure troubling the rest of the realm. Small fiery pools form, attracting edible salamanders and fireflies and providing natural open-hearth furnaces, ideal for apprentice metalworking dragons. Able to supply both utility and sustenance in vast quantities, the Emberglow Hearth is a popular starting point for fledgeling lairs.|
|From above, the Molten Scar appears as a fiery, violent wound gouged relentlessly into the landscape. It reaches eastward and is comprised of disjointed tectonic plates that crash thunderously into one another as they drift on the liquid rock. Rare metals are revealed in this back-and-forth exchange, and the open gaps are alive with dragons eager to plunder the veins before the next collision knocks the unclaimed ore into the melting pot below.|
|This obsidian coastline is blanketed in flowing lava and a scalding steam-mist at the water's edge. The land is fluid and soft—an open canvas, unmolded clay needing a crafter's hand. The Annex beckons to those flights eager to make a lasting impression on the landscape, and thus to cement their places by the Flamecaller's side. However, this builder's paradise is marred by inexplicable events and dreadful shapes moving deep in the pervasive mist.|
|Anchored into the thick, glassy obsidian by immense drills, a mighty platform perches over the crater of the continent's largest and most active volcano. The intricate architecture is shrouded in a billowing cloud of ash and acrid smoke, but the glowing lava powering the forge workshop highlights the fire-tinged silhouettes of the furnaces and smelters furthering the Flamecaller's efforts.|
Notable Flora and FaunaEdit
Food items with descriptions that clearly link them to the flight.Ashfall Bat
While most bats are active at dusk, Ashfall Bats emerge from their caves as volcanic ash rains from the sky.
This wicked insect is immune to fire, so it often lures predators to their doom by flying through bursts of lava.
This gleaming black spider is undeterred by even the harshest heat. Swarms are frequently seen crawling in and out of smoldering trees or shrubs.
Though the spores of the Cindershroom indeed look like smoldering cinders, it's mostly harmless.
It may appear scorched and dead, but Cindervine thrives in fiery environments.
True to its name, the bites of the Fire Ant burn just like fire. Upsetting a hive can be painful, if not deadly.
Consuming this flower gives dragons of the Fire Flight the sudden urge to channel their magic into projectile spheres of flame.
Members of this species will manually assist in the spread of natural forest fires by carrying burning branches to remote areas. Next time a hatchling 'blames it on the monkeys', they might actually be telling the truth!
One of the only species in the realm that can survive in molten lava, the firecoiler is known to lurch from scalding pools to latch onto victims and drag them back in.
Crispy, crunchy, and extremely spicy in flavor, the firefly thrives wherever lava flows.
The leaves of this dry shrub are nearly impervious to flame, making it incredibly difficult to clear once flameweed has overrun an area.
Catching a Lava Strider without also getting a mouthful of lava takes a bit of finesse.
Able to thrive in incredibly hot waters, the Molten Goby itself is hot enough to singe tender palates.
It's said that these peaches are sweetest when volcanoes are at their most active.
Fabled for its fire resistance, the elusive Salamander only emerges from volcanic fissures when an eruption is nigh.
When their numbers grow too large, Singed Lemmings run en masse into the mouths of volcanoes.
It can be difficult to harvest fire lilies, which often grow very close to active magma vents. Scoring a basketful is quite a treat.
Apparel items that can be directly related to the flight by their description and/or appearance.Searing Emblem
A glowing fire rune; the sign of a true magical adept.
An orange jeweled armband, commonly worn by denizens of the Ashfall Waste.
A set of heat-resistant gloves, dimming spectacles, and a large smithing hammer.
A ceremonial sash gifted to those who have brought honor to the Ashfall Waste.
These pauldrons grow as more fuel is added to the furnace.
A glorious crown awarded to dragons who have shown good leadership while visiting the Ashfall Waste.
Visitors of the Ashfall Waste should never follow the dancing flames.
This portable smelter has been enchanted to keep blacksmiths active while on the move.
A protective mask to keep embers out... or in, depending on one's inclination!
Encircling the head, this halo of pure flame is the magical sign of a powerful individual.
Although known for its weapons and armor, the Ashfall Waste can also produce decorative apparel for the fashionable (and wealthy).
A durable leather tome filled with ancient knowledge of the Fire Flight.
This voluminous cape reflects heat and repels smoke.
Other items that can be directly related to the flight by their description and/or appearance.Fire Runestone
An ancient stone bearing the ancestral rune of the Flamecaller. Such a find should be kept as a prized possession.
The metal of this chest is scalding hot. When handled, it burns and sizzles, then goes cold.
A smouldering, unhatched fire egg. It is almost too hot to hold and is rocking back and forth constantly. Its cragged surface is pulsing with embers.
A crudely-fashioned stuffed doll that resembles the Flamecaller. It is falling apart at the seams and quite warm to the touch.
A clay likeness of the Flamecaller that was fired in the Great Furnace. It still maintains a smolder.
Released during the 2016 Flameforger's Festival.
Released during the 2017 Flameforger's Festival.
Pictures the Scorched Forest.
Pictures the Volcanic Vents.
Legends say that most of the realm's amber was formed in an ancient battle between the Flamecaller and the Gladekeeper, where terrible forest fires polymerized resin within the trees in the Viridian Labyrinth.
Something truly special, a one-of-a-kind marvel! ...wait a second... 'Made in Blacksand Annex'?
Of particular interest in its gemstone form, chrysoberyl is one of the Ashfall Waste's biggest export materials. Large and consistent quantities of this mineral are created by the constant expansion of the Blacksand Annex.
Firebrand tungsten is oddly enough a waste product of Fire dragons and their metallurgy, useful for very little.
These baubles spontaneously produce embers. Great for starting a campfire, great for burning your den down.
Due to their long-lasting warmth, it is a common to see both dragons and serthis gathering these curious embers for use in the persistent heating of lairs or cauldrons.
These rocks can be found where Blacksand Annex meets the domain of the Tidelord.
Forged in the breath of the Flamecaller, or so you like to tell your clanmates.
This miracle of nature can actually be woven to produce flame-resistant clothing for use by dragons that may not have started their lives in the Ashfall Waste.

"A smoldering, unhatched fire egg. It is almost too hot to hold and is rocking back and forth constantly. Its cragged surface is pulsing with embers." - Unhatched Fire Egg
Fire eggs are rough and molten. Bright lava fills the cracks between the small, volcanic rocks comprising its surface. The eggs sit in a pool of lava, surrounded by stalagmites.
The Fire Flight background features a rocky, volcanic landscape rife with lava flows and craters. Thick smoke clouds the air, making it opaque with ash.
