I have no clue if this is in the right spot so I apologise if it's not.

I am actually disappointed with the new update. There was so much hype for the update because, I mean, a new expansion, a new dragon, new islands, and new minigame! It's awesome!! I guess I should have seen this coming but for the rest of us who don't have the expansion it's just like: yay new lighting!

Anyone else kinda disappointed?

My hands have touched the highest clouds. My feet have touched the depths of the ocean. Soaring through the sky, swimming through the sea, dancing through life. But what is it for? 

People wander this earth wanting to be like other people. They sing the same song. 

But my soul sings a song. A different song. I dance to the beat of this song, for this song is what he has given me. This song is a part of me. It follows me as I dance, through rain, through snow, through the hilltop. It cradles me in its warm embrace. This song is my life. And I will sing with, even when the song turns sad... For this song, is who I am.

Star and all her dragons by FireNightStar^^
 
Name: Star The Navigator
 
Age: 18
 
Gender: Female
 
Appearance: Star has incredibly long Chestnut brown hair that when in a braid reaches down to her waist. Her skin is a light Carmel color and sure has a few freckles on the bridge if her nose. She has a slight scar across her left eye, but thankfully it does not affect her vision. She has amethyst purple eyes.

Designed by Arrowalker, Vanilia Viking and I. Drawn by Arrow
 
Winter
 
Her shirt is a long sleeve olive green shirt with gold borders. She wears a brown leather chest piece and coyote fur wrapping around her waist. Her boots, wristbands and cape are lined with coyote fur also. Her pants are brown with deep brown buckles and she keeps her messenger style bag with her at all times. 
 
Summer
 
When summer comes she changes to a green three quarter length sleeve shirt with gold borders. Her wristbands are no longer lined with fur, and so are her boots. She removes the fur from her waist and only wears her cloak on the colder days or when flying. 
 
Background: Star was 9 years old when she joined the school of dragons. 
 
Upon joining she made many friends. She Trained many dragons and because of her, Snow Wraiths were welcomed​into the school. But still, something was calling her. 
 
She went on many journeys​ to find what was calling her, but she never found it. She did find, however​, many different islands. Including, an island with a mountain in the middle. The mountain is hollow and covered in ice. Star decided it was the perfect place for all of her dragon companions.
 
 During the summer months Star stays on the islands to keep her ice dragons healthy. 
 
Personality: Star believes in following her heart more than anything. She sees the world at a different angle and because of that has traveled FAR beyond where any Viking has gone before. 
 
Star has not limited herself to Dragons. She is the proud trainer of a pack of wolves, a bear, a pod of Orcas, several birds and even a family of rabbits​!
 
As you might have guessed, star does things very differently.
 
Weapon: 
Drawn by Mechfighter^^
 
Other: Star has a necklace with the chiefs symbol ingraved on it.

Beautiful edit of Star (When she was younger) and Skyfire by Zitka!^^
 
Personalize: Skyfire does not tolerate sarcasm in the wrong moment. Nor does she allow games when they are on a mission. Wish she is given a task she will get it done THEN play. Unless of course someone throws something. Yay if her only weakness: Fetch. She cannot resist retrieving things. Which she gets made fun of by Star's other dragons for.
 
Favorite activity: Fetch
 
Biggest fear: Eels
 
Origin: Star received Skyfire as an egg when she first joined the school of dragons.

Polaris was enjoying a fun game of fetch in the snow!
 
A scene from the story of how Star and Polaris met by Aelyras^^
 
Personality: Polaris is playful as can be. Once you get to know him or he sees that Star trusts you, he is caring as can be. But before you​ gain his trust, he might come off as cold (Pun Intended) He is playfully competitive and will not refuse a competition. 
 
Favorite activity: Snowball Fight
 
Biggest fear: Cabbage
 
Origin: During one of Berk's coldest Winters​ travel to the wilderness was banned due to a report of seeing Snow Wraiths. Star followed her heart and trained one anyway and aided Hiccup in defending the School from dragon hunters. Since then Snow Wraiths have been welcomed into the school.

Journey by Violetta Rosemary^^
 
Personality: Journey loves to annoy people more than anything. She will play jokes (that aren't​ really funny) as is sarcastic. 
 
She is incredibly competitive and (just because is bugs Skyfire) will challenge Polaris to races all the time. However, she will do most anything to save Star.
 
Favorite activity: Racing 
 
Biggest fear: Losing everyone she cares about​.
 
Origin: Star found Journey on one of her trips. This time she flew farther than ever before. After weeks of travel she found a large section of land. It was too big to be a island. Upon exploration she made a surprising discovery, and met Journey.

Name: Sonda
 
 
Species: Titan Sand Wraith
 
 
Gender: Male
 
 
Appearance: 
Base by MegaboltPheonix, Filled by BrynneBjorrnson^^
 
Personality: Sonda is short tempered and hot headed. He is stubborn and has a wry sense of humor. 
 
His firmness is good for some aspects of leading, but he can be to harsh, so he needs some others to help balance his personality.
 
 
Favorite activity: Sleeping
 
 
Biggest fear: Hurting Star and letting her down. 
 
 
Origin: Star met Sonda when he stole Moana the Tide Glider's eggs. Star recused the eggs and in the process befriended the Tide Glider. 
 
After a long adventure trying to find the answer to why Sonda was stealing her eggs, Star found out that his family died when he was young, and so he was lonely and jealous of Moana. Star invited him to Vivvore, where he grew to in unofficial leadership position. Star saw this and officially​ made him the leader.
 
 
 
Name: Moana 
 
 
Species: Tide Glider
 
 
Gender: Female
 
 
Appearance: 
Base by MegaboltPheonix, Filled by BrynneBjorrnson^^
 
 
Personality: Moana is compassionate and forgiving. Perfect to contrast Sonda's harshness, although occasionally they will clash. 
 
 
Favorite activity: Searching the depths of the ocean for treasures. 
 
 
Biggest fear: The dark
 
 
Origin: Star met Moana when Sonda stole her eggs. Star rescued the eggs and in the process earned her trust.

Species: Eruptadon
 
 
Gender: Female
 
 
Appearance:

Favorite activity: Watching the hatchlings play
 
 
Biggest fear: Swimming
 
 
Origin: Star found Pompeii when she needed to fly into the depths of a volcano. None of her dragons could take that kind of heat, so Pompeii helped out.

I don't get it. What are you dissapointed with? Is it because the expansion costs gems?  Every expansion costs gems when they are first released. They only recently switched Icestorm Island over to being available for coins and it's been out for at least a couple years. When the people who don't want to spend money on the game hear that there is going to be a new expansion released they start saving up gems. Eventually they get enough to get the expansion.

Most things end up being disappointing if people overhype them. We were promised an expansion and they delivered. I personally liked it.

*burps*

Typical "they didn't give it out for free so I'm miffed" attitude. Look, various fees, bills, and payments need to be made in order to keep this game running. Staff member paychecks and forum hosting fees to name a few. Obviously SOD is going to focus more on paying customers rather than free ones. That's how they make money. That's how bills are paid and employees get paychecks.

 

I own my own business- a coffee shop. We have a stamp card system where with every purchase of a drink, you get a stamp. 10 stamps and you get a free drink of your choice. No size limit, no espresso limit. Anything you want. I have customers who come in and only ask for a cup of ice water. Ice water is free. They do not get a stamp because they did not "purchase" their drink. I can tell you right now that if I gave stamps and free drinks out to cutomers who got free cups of ice water I'd be OUT OF BUSINESS WITHIN A MONTH. I'd get no monetary reward to justify their free item, and I'd be losing money so rapidly it'd make my head spin. The same principle applies to SOD- They reward those who loyaly pay for their services with expansions, discounts, and other freebies.

 

People who don't pay for services do NOT get rewards. Reward your loyals and entice your "free-loaders". It's basic business 101.

No! Bad Tigerus and Euphrates!!! Do not eat my subject!!

I don't think you understand. My dad doesn't have a job right now so we're living off of 2,000 dollars. That leaves no money for me to earn so I can get the expansion. Besides my mom hates how much Dragons mean to me and wouldn't let me spend it on a game. I was not mad because it's not free. I want nothing more than for this hadn't to keep running I was simply stating that I was disappointed wanted to know if anyone else agreed.

I'm sorry to hear you're going through a rough time like that. I understand what it means to be on a tight budget. My dad's been laid off from his job before and that put a strain on us finacially. There's still good news to consider though. There are ways to earn gems in game and even though it might take awhile you can still earn enough to buy the expansion without spending any money.

(I will not be adding vikings that are unnamed in-game!)

 

I had climbed a rough, high cliff by the sea. It was a favorite spot, a place I could think and keep calm. But I hadn't realized that high tide was coming so swiftly. It came too quick and I was stuck. 

"Someone help me! I can't leave!!" I shouted to the gray sky. I remember that day well. The wind was very strong, the tides coming in faster and faster, and I was surrounded by water, soon to drown.

 

A fast blip in the sky that I could barely pinpoint roughly grabbed me and yanked me into the air. I looked at the claws holding me - except it wasn't claws at all. A thin, armored tail curled tightly around me and the other two seemed poised at my throat should I squirm too much. I glanced upwards at the beast. Even its underbelly looked like armor, though not as tough as the "outer shell" seemed to be. It was a dark gray color and the outer armor was a dark navy almost black hue. I assume it primarily hunted at night due to this. 

 

I tapped gently at the tail around my body to get its attention. It didn't stop flying but it glanced down at me, as if to say, 'What could you possibly want?'

Clearing my throat, I shouted, "Thanks for saving me, but this is a bit of a rough ride like this. Could you stop somewhere? Maybe I could gift you some fish jerky I have at my hut?"

 

The Triple Stryke sneered and ignored me for some time. It was a long flight and when it ended, it was abrupt. I was dropped into a craggy nest, well hidden with brambles and foliage and dirt. One Triple Stryke dragonling scampered toward me. It had to have been a week old at the latest, but it was already fairly large. They must grow quickly in this environment, even with their hardy armor. Its coloring was similar to the parent.

 

I saw its throat glow brightly. 'Great,' I thought. 'I'm about to be dragon kebab.'

 

My eyes shut tightly and moments passed. It seemed to have gotten distracted by a looming shadow above the nest and I took the chance to scratch directly underneath its chin. It did little. It snarled at me and I moved my hand to the area right behind its ear spike. That was the spot. It chittered to itself in contentment, never having known this bliss before.

 

"Boy? Girl?"

 

The Triple Stryke blinked at boy but ignored girl. Smart little guy. "I think I'll call you Noxting because of your strange color.. and you're probably a night hunter, aren't you?"

 

He nodded in agreement. 

 

-------- (One year later) ---------------------

 

"Come on, Nox," I patted his cheek. His flight was so sharp and accurate, it was insane. He was probably the fastest Strike Class dragon out there, except for possibly a Night Fury. A recently discovered species, to boot. We had been living on Berk for a little while now, and Hiccup was very curious. So we decided to go out and have a race.

 

Hiccup leaned back against Toothless, grinning at me. I rolled my eyes at him, my competitiveness being driven into hypermode. There are no allies when I'm ready to win. Everyone's an enemy. The other Berkians gathered around us to watch, some to participate themselves. Fishlegs raised the flag. 3, 2, 1.......... GO!

 

Nox launched us forward, vining his tails together to help him turn even more accurately. Toothless was a nose ahead of us, and I leaned down closer to my Triple Stryke's body. "Watch for their weaknesses." He grunted in response.

 

With every dive, sudden turn, Hiccup and myself were keeping toe to toe. The Night Fury was just a smidge faster. Just a smidge. The race was over. It took .32 seconds. The rest of the racers took a minute at least. He nodded, pleased with himself and his dragon, but also surprised at my own. "I can't believe there's a dragon out there that can keep up with us."

 

"That's not all we can do," I retorted. Sore loser? Eh. Maybe. I jutted my chin towards the cliff behind Toothless. "Show 'em how it's done!"

 

Nox snarled and shot a very blinding fireball directly at Toothless. Of course he managed to dodge it, and he growled in defense, but we weren't in front of them anymore. We were behind, and flew directly underneath the crumbling debris. 

 

"Watch out!!" Hiccup shouted. We didn't hear it. We were trying to show them up.

 

Nox flew horizontally so that his belly was facing the debris. His tails lashed at each debris in quick (almost too quick) succession, easily knocking everything out of harm's way within moments so that we were completely safe. Afterward, we flew towards Hiccup and Toothless, still upside down. I smirked. "Can Toothless do that?"

 

Hiccup ran his hand through his hair in stunned silence and shrugged. "Well... no."

 

I sniffed. "Thought so. Race you back to Berk!"

Yeah when that pole came out I would have voted for the windgnasher but I knew everyone wanted the triple stryke and I didn't care so I voted triple stryke.
