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?

Weapon:A gronkle iron staff that the ends light on fire. It can also split in half the long way to reveal a leather sheet that works like her own version of Hiccup's flight suit.

Age:18

 

Backstory: no one can know. When Vanessa was five years old her village was attacked by dragons. Her father sent her and her mother into the woods to hide while he defended the village. On their way to the safe house they had built they were attacked by a monstrous nightmare. Sadly Vanessa's mother died protecting her. Ever since then her father has hated dragons. Even worse he blamed her for what happened. He disowned her. While living on the streets she befriended a singetail and named it compass. This made matters worse between her and her father. Now he not only banished her from his life he also seeks to kill her. Vanessa is on the run when she comes across an ally who is also her father's worst enemy. But they cannot know her secret. Everything she had built up would be lost if they knew the truth. She would be cast out if they knew who her father really was.

Ha! Again!

 

Appearance: strawberry blond hair cut to shoulders, bright green eyes

Age:20

 

Backstory: Aly's parents died when she was a baby leaving her  in her uncle's care. One  day, when she was five, her uncle took her in a fishing expedition but the boat was attacked by wild dragons. Her uncle sent  her off in a small rowboat and Aly was never sure what  happened to her uncle. After many  days  floating around(the oars had been lost to the dragons) she fell asleep. When she awoke she found  herself surrounded by dragons and a young woman. She learned that  the woman's name was Valka and she lived with and trained dragons.

Valka nursed Aly back to health and after  that the thought of leaving never entered her mind. She grew up among dragons and even bonded with a yellow  and green triple stryke which she  named Hunter. 

At the time of httyd 2 Aly was on a trip to find  more dragons wounded by Drago Bludvist and take them to the sanctuary.

 

Appearance: she dresses like Valka and had similar hair.

 

Weapon: stick thing like Valka's.

 

Skills: Training dragons and thankfully, cooking.

 

Dragon:Hunter (triple stryke)< Other:Aly speaks dragonese since she grew up with dragons. /p>

 

 

                     Dragons I hope to get

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.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

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.

Noxting /  / Triple Stryke (COMING SOON)

(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.
