Read the story below, then choose how Xplotar
should respond to evolve to the next stage
of social development.

Flying in the forest and in the fog is great fun for the Midling Dragons of Ryuu.  They all love fog flying.  On this day, however, the fog is really, really dense.  They can hardly see a thing.  Xplotar is flying skillfully, dodging tall trees as he sees them and avoiding birds.  Suddenly, a Youngling Dragon who is trying this activity out for the first time, flies right into Xplotar, knocking them both to the ground.  Xplotar is really angry.  What should he do?

1. Xplotar should yell at the clumsy Youngling and even scare him with fire and smoke.  He should tell him that he needs to go home and never return to fog flying in the forest.  He should call him a lizard-brain.

Every Dragon thinks about saying and doing those things when they are angry, but most learn to stop and think before they act.  Then they decide, with the help of the Light Force, Releaser, to let the anger go.  Xplotar didn’t stop and think.  Try another answer.

2. Xplotar should shake himself off, say “Yiixel” (pronounced YEEKS-el, the Dragon word for Ouch), and return to flying.  It was an annoying moment but why let it spoil an afternoon of wonderful fog flying?

Awesome response!  The invisible arms of Self-Calmer are clearly embracing Xplotar at this moment.  Congratulations.  You have evolved! If you want, you can play again.

3. Xplotar should make the Youngling sit on the forest floor in Time Out and recite all of the rules of fog flying, again and again.  Xplotar should plan to tell the Youngling’s parents and the Forest Keeper about the Youngling’s careless and clumsy flying.

Oops.  Who does Xplotar think he is?  The Boss of Bleakwood Forest?  The President of Fog Flying?  He must be under the influence of the
Injustice Collector.  Try another answer.

4. Xplotar should shake himself off and then look to see if the Youngling Dragon, who is crying a few Dragon tears and wiping moss off his face, is okay.  He should make sure that one of the older Dragons checks the Youngling out for bumps and bruises.

That is a kind and considerate response.  Xplotar is evolving into a good Dragon friend under the fine influence of the invisible hero, Empathy.  Congratulations.  You have evolved! If you want, you can play again.
