Plus considering Rodril was working on updating the mod on a close to weekly basis for a long time, I think he has deserved a self-imposed break. I know people are freaking out about it a little bit. But just stay calm. Rodril has been good about communicating things so far. And what benefit is the "baby dragon", or is a purely cosmetic thing? Would be ok with either.
vanilla MM7, yes, in vanilla, after you complete the Warlock promotion quest (Druid + ally yourself with Deyja/Dark side), you get a permanent follower named "Baby Dragon" that grants quite a lot of boosts to all Warlocks in your party, but at the same time it also takes more food on travels and resting because well, it's a baby and it needs to grow.
In Merge, according to Templayer, said "Baby Dragon" NPC was replaced with an actual Dragon party member that is, as per current version of the mod, a Jadamean Red Dragon. This Black Dragon is meant to swap the said Jadamean Red Dragon with itself once you complete the Warlock promotion quest.
Hopefully, as I don't wish to swarm Rodril by a ton of new stuff that would make updating this mod even more tough it already is from what I've heard. ^^; I wish him all well on his own break too, no worries, just kind of concerned if all new stuff that were added to Templayer's Implementation Queue isn't too much for him, as he's still one person. ^^;
Props to you for actually overplaying the light side there. I like dark side more because well, Liches and crazy-powerful spells.
