Default Re: What is the tithe rate?

I disagree, but then I see threadfall as something that needs a variety of tactics depending on how it falls: clumps or singles, in steady winds or gusts, dry and deadly or partially drowned in rain/frozen by a cold front. The range in flame breadth and length, the speed of a dragon, its acceleration, the tightness of its drops and turns... a good Wingleader will bring all those things to bear, but they won't all be available if you fly wings of just one colour.


...which is why I write threadfighting scenes the way I do, I guess. Hopefully they read plausibly enough!
