Introduction (Please do not reply directly to this post!)

Earthguard

We form an elite group of Viking warriors and dragon riders dedicated to protecting Berk, Dragons, and Nature.

We brave deep caverns, sail stormy seas, trek harsh tundras, and climb our way through lush forests and jungles, charting and discovering new lands…

Making new friends, discovering new dragons...

We do not fear the mysteries of nature, we embrace them.

We build, invent, and create to better live with Earth's creatures and connect with nature…

We unite with dragons to create a harmonious existence between our two intelligent species…

Let us join together against Alvin, Drago, Daggur, Viggo, and all who threaten our beloved dragons and home!

General Information (Please do not reply directly to this post!)

Welcome to Earthguard's general announcement and recruitment area! Here you may find various banners and art designed for clan use and our current recruitment status, as well as our clan rules. Please note this thread is used for informational purposes only. Feel free to ask questions and donate art, videos, and writing.

 

If you want to chat, please visit our In-Game Clan Messageboard and/or our Forum Hang-Out Thread.

 

General Clan Information:

 

Earthguard was founded on July 23rd, 2014.  We are currently #74 on School of Dragon's Leader boards as of March 8th, 2016. We also have up to 100 available membership positions, by invitation or request.

 

Who belongs in Earthguard?

This group is open to all but is geared toward environmentally minded people, animal lovers, and people who enjoy the outdoors. We are primarily a social group for making friends with like-minded individuals.

 

Is Earthguard a Competitive Clan?

Earthguard is a relaxed, interest-based clan. At the time being there are no trophy minimums or earning requirements. Socialization, roleplay, competition, clan board and forum use is highly encouraged.

 

What about Clan Tournaments?

Clan members are not required to participate in tournaments, but are encouraged to. We are happy just to have our fellow clan members cheer us on from the sidelines. I however, will always participate and try to make our clan proud!

 

Are there any requirements for being a part of, and staying in Earthguard?

Clan members must abide by all of School of Dragons game and forum rules, as well as our personal clan rules (read below for rules and penalties).

 

Members should play School of Dragons and/or use the SOD Forum on a weekly basis. Any clan members who remain inactive for a month or longer may be removed to make room for new members. Any newly added members who do not make an effort to become an active part of the community within two weeks may be removed. 

 

What do you do when you are a part of Earthguard?

We have an active in-game clan message board and clan members are encouraged to visit and socialize in game as well as on the message board.

 

We are planning on and looking forward to creating fun get-togethers and parties, contests and tournaments, roleplaying, chatting, racing, and so on with the help of each of our members.

 

What happens when the clan is full? Would I have a chance to join?

When the clan becomes full I will more actively remove inactive or uninvolved clan members. Vikings without a name (Viking-#######), those with no trophies, and those who have not chatted on the board, socialized with other members, or used the forum board will be removed first. 

 

When adding members, priority goes to Vikings who are most active, have many trophies, or have skills to offer the clan (art, animation, writing, etc). People who personally message me in the forum or have a customized clan request also get priority for going above and beyond to show interest. 

 

Who is the leader of Earthguard?

I am the leader of Earthguard. My in game name is "Marriella" and forum name is "Mariella". You are welcome to friend me in-game using my friend code: ALNL9V. 

 

Why did you make Earthguard?

I wanted to create a place for good, like-minded people to hang out and enjoy School of Dragons at our own pace. We all love dragons, but not all of us are competitive! Here at Earthguard we appreciate both the "Fishlegses" and "Snotlouts" of the Dragon World. We compete in Thunder Run, unite against Alvin and Daggur in Battle, but also love to relax on the forum and share art, fan-fiction, and just enjoy each others company. 

 

Do you have a clan application I can fill out? 

Filling out a form is not necessary... but If you want to get ahead of the crowd by bumping up your priority, feel free to fill out this clan form. This general information will help me get to know you and see what you have to offer our community.

"Guardians of Earth, Guardians of Life

We stand forth for friendship, for glory, and right.
Protect those we love, the Earth and it's own,
We are Dragons and Vikings, Partners in Flight."

"Vikings from Earth, and Dragons from High
The time has come, the time is nigh. 
Give it your everything, give it your might,
Rise from the darkness and into the light."

 

"Never give up and never give in,

Belive in yourself and your dragon kin.

Together you'll find what's hidden within."


"Through blight, through plight, or perilous fight,

Keep your enemy in your Guardian's sight.

But remember your vows and remember what's right:

For no matter the slight or the might of their bite,

They are not yours, but Thor's to smite. "

 

"Vikings of Earth, Dragons of Sky
Fear not those who cheat and lie
For a place to run there is ne'er nigh
Where evil escapes the Guardian's eye."

BAM.

Alright, I've recently joined up with the Guard, and one of the things I promised if I was allowed to join was:

 

AAAAART.

 

This is just my recent style as an example of what I can do, so it's not, like, 'free art' or anything. But the examples are so you have a reference point... thingy... as to what I am able to do.

     So! I've decided to, (trumpet sounds), make art of Earth Guard's dragons! I'm rubbish at humans, unfortunately, so, this is a dragons-only request zone. And if you're not in the EarthGuard, you can't make requests, please remember that. If you want art of your winged lizards, simply ask for a piece on this here thread and provide a reference- that's it. I'll only do one piece of art for you at a time, and you'll have to wait your turn until you can ask for another one.

 

Please don't reply directly to this post, so I may be able to edit it in the future if need be! Thank you!

__________________

List of dragons here.

Art is linked to the artist's accounts, unless it's mine. In which case, there's no link.

I'll probably make art for you if you ask nicely. I can only draw animals, no humans.

Also my chat doesnt work in game anymore? So if it looks like I'm ignoring you, I am

not. I just uh, can't say anything in responce.

I'd like to join

Hello! I wasn't entirely sure where to post for membership application, so I'm posting this here instead of the hang-out. If you need me to delete it and repost it somewhere else, I will!

I'd like to join Earthguard! I'm not very good at art and I don't have trophies, but I'm all for socializing. What I'm most interested in when playing are races and battle-events, though I'm still figuring out which dragons to use for them, so I guess that's where my value comes in? Although I'm not a new player, I am playing with a new viking, so I haven't progressed very far yet. I also filled out the application form. Please consider me.

 

.:: Earthguard Member Application :: Apply to be a Member! ::.
 
Viking Name:
Herzas
Friend Code:
D7NQDQ
Trophies: 
Currently none (I've been focusing on quests instead of thropies)
Adventure Level:
35
Farming Level:
17
Fishing Level: 
11
Number of dragons:
6 (About to become 8 when I collect the last few gems needed for a new stable)
How often/much do you play?
I've been playing a lot recently, every day for a few hours. I can't guarantee the same level of activity for the time to come, though, since I've been playing during my holiday break. I do plan on continuing playing every day, but who knows what life throws at me?
Why do you want to be a part of our community?
I'm very drawn in by the social aspect, since playing is a lot more fun when you get to share it with people with the same interests. I'd like to get to know people in the community and challenge them to beat my scores, have friendly competition. Or fly besides them as we destroy an enemy ship and guarantee Berk's safety once again! I don't know, really. It just seems fun to be part of a community on here.
What can you do for Earthguard?
When the role-play board comes, I think I will take part in it, since I've been writing for years now and it's great practice. I'm not very good at digital art, but I know my way around it, so if we need anything like simple banners or such, I could give it a shot. I'm also planning on getting a LOT of thropies in the near future, since I'm pretty competitive. 
 
Have you read and agreed to follow our clan rules?
Yes, I have.
