Topaz Gypsy

 

  Digital art of Paz by Arrowalker the Amazing!           Drawing of Topaz Gypsy by Ally Kay the Skilled!

                                                                                 

Backstory:

          When Paz was 3, she and her parents were sailing along with the rest of their tribe to find a new island. When a huge storm capsized the boat in the middle of the night, it killed the majority of the tribe, including her father. The remaining few washed up on the shores of Berk. When they realized they had been blown drastically off course, Stoic offered to let them stay, under the condition that they became members of the tribe of Berk. Shortly afterwards, however, Paz's mother had contracted an unknown illness (pneumonia) and died. Gothi, who had grown fond of the child in that short time, decieded to raise her as an apprentice.

 

Due to her postion with Gothi, she does have an aqquaintence with Hiccup and the other dragon riders, but that's about it. When she's not studying at the School of Dragons during the school year, she's assisting Gothi at her house. She recieved a deep scar across her right eye when training her first dragon Minty. Fortunetly it doesn't affect her vision. It does, however, tend to flare up on occasions, which makes it burn and turn an irritated red.

​The Topaz Chronicles

 

(Thank you so, so much for this, IMV, it means a lot!)

 

Likes: Animals, music, stargazing, watching the sunrise/ sunset, being helpful or witty (which doesn't happen often), practicing with her ax, hanging out with friends (also doesn't happen often)

Dislikes: Being belittled because of her occasional naiveness and/ or appearance (She looks 1-2 years younger than she actually is), the dark/ unknown, romance, pink, girly things in general, the taste of mint (suprisingly enough, she likes the smell though)

 

((Note: Besides her axe, Paz also carries a leather satchel, which has a small first aid kit, compass, a whittleing knife that she uses to carve patterns on her ax handle, a small spyglass and various other items))

 

((Funfact: Paz means peace in Spanish, which I did not know when first creating the character. Ironically enough, being peacefull is not one of her strongsuits))

                                                                   Pencil sketch by Lulu6161 the Awesome!

Dragon's name: mint chip

Nickname: Minty

Gender: Female

Species: Deadly Nadder

Class: Tracker (Still don't get why they were moved out of the Sharp class)

Color: Mint Green (Hence the name) with beige details.

Personality: A loyal dragon with a generous helping of wit and sass. She doesn't really see anyone as in charge, so she can be somewhat unpredictable, doing what she wants or thinks is better. She will stick one of her spines in you if annoyed, which Paz figured out quickly. Despite her flaws, she will do anything to protect those who gain her trust. While not the most powerful Nadder due to her size, she is one of the fastest. Racing is one of her favorite hobbies.

 

Likes: Racing, dragon nip, mint, salmon, hunting.

Dislikes: Being cooped up, people who annoy her, being told what to do, swimming.

 

 

"Foster" Dragons:

((She promised Gothi she would rehome these ones. So far that has not happened))

 

 

Dragon's name: shadowofdeath

Nickname: Shadow

Gender: Male

Species: Whispering Death

Class: Boulder

Color: Pitch Black with a white underbelly.

Personality: Unlike the majority of his species, Shadow is very laid back and extremely lazy. One of the Death twins, he and his sister were rejected by their owner when they didn't live up to expectations. Paz is hoping to work on his work ethic before rehoming him.

 

 

Dragon's name: Milky Way

Nickname: Wé

Gender: Female

Species: Whispering Death

Class: Boulder

Color: Blue with a galaxy-like pattern on her underbelly that consists of pinks and purples.

Personality: The second of the Death twins, Wé is actually a bit hyperactive, making her have difficulty focusing on the task at hand. Takes interest in the most random things, like the rain, or a bug crawling up a tree, or the sunrise. Paz is hoping to get that under control before rehoming her, but she might not get the chance before her perfect rider comes along (winky wink).

 

 

Dragon's name: Starred and Spangled

Nickname: Spangled

Gender: Male

Species: Gronckle

Class: Boulder

Color: Blue with a red underbelly and white spots.

Personality: Stubborn, independant, gruff, toughy on the outside... in a word, PATRIOTIC!!! Wasn't as great of a beginner's dragon as the previous owners thought...

 

 

Annie made by ScarfyWings the Gifted!

Dragon's name: Oceanna

Nickname: Annie

Gender: Female

Species: Gronckle

Class: Boulder

Color: Deep blue with a ocean-like green underbelly.

Personality: Paz's "cuddle buddy", Annie is the most out going and enthusiastic of the bunch. Her love of water and attention has made her Paz's second favorite dragon (after Minty, of course). Unlike the other boulder class dragons on Paz's side of the stable, However, Annie's owner's parents just somewhere for her to stay until thier kid was ready for the responsiblilty of owning a dragon. There will come a day when her "cuddle buddy" will not be around all the time, and Paz is not looking forward to it.

 

 

 

Arion's Dragon

 

Name: Scarab

Age: 17

Personality: WIP

Likes:

Dislikes:

RP's that I've taken part in (not all of them were finished)

 

Let's go train a dragon and save the day! (HTTYD RP):

 

Power Play (Superhero RP)

 

The Rogues (Criminal HTTYD RP)

​(Psst this one's been my favorite so far so check it out!)

 

The Trial of Riders (HTTYD/Hunger Games type RP)

 

One HECK of a CROSSOVER! (Crossover RP)

 

Painting a Storm (Warrior Cat style RP (But with wolves!))

... Yeah, that one was a bit of a wild card for me. I've never even read the Warrior Cats series.

 

​The Escapees (Kind of a sequel to The Rouges)

 

 

(By the way, if you know of an rp that you think I'd be interested in based on the ones listed above, let me know)

I also have an MCU RP in the making (Planning is on hiatus until whenever I get the motivation to do something with it)

 

 

 

​And now the fun part...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Y'all get to learn

 

 

about me!!!!

 

 

 

(a little bit. Probably wouldn't be wise to give away my secret identity)

​(Not that I'm a celebrity or anything... Or am I?)

 

 

 

​(No... thankfully not... moving on)

 

 

​I'm probably not in any fandoms, per se, but I feel like I have a borderline unhealthy obbsesion for some of the subjects listed below:

 

​(P. S. These are not in any particuar order)

 

HTTYD (why else would I be on here?)

​Big Hero 6

​The Avengers (Actually, just the MCU in general)

Pirates of the Caribbean

The Chronicles of Narnia (sorta, haven't hung out in that fantasy in a while)

​The Fellowship of the Ring

TMNT (The 2012 reincarnation)

​Phineas and Ferb

​Brave

​Star Wars

​Back to the Future

​Moana

Milo Murphey's Law (again, sorta. It only just came out)

(There are probably more. I'll update as I think of them)

 

 

​A couple of not-so-random facts about me

 

1. I'm a Christian.

​2. I'm a pianist.

3. I'm 100% American (Not that it technically means anything as far as ethnic heritage since the US is the mixing pot of cultures and whatnot. I think my great great grandparents were Polish, but besides that I have no idea what my ancestry looks like) Specifically, I'm from the southeastern portion.

4. I've traveled to 18 out of the 50 US states. Outside of my country, I have been to Italy, England, and Germany.

​5. I'm an equestrian.

6. I named my OC after two of my pets.

​7. I sing in the alto section of my choir (which means yes, I'm a girl. Is it just me, or are the majority of the people on this forum also girls?)

​8. I'm working on learning Spanish, so don't be suprised if I pop a couple of spanish words while talking on here. (I probably won't, but if I do, now you know why)

​9. I'm not an artist, but I do draw when I'm bored. If you care to see any examples, you can go to my Art Dump.

 

​I also now have an FAQ if you have additional questions!

 

Favorite Music Artists

NF (Which stands for Nate Feuerstein, not Night Fury), Toby Mac, Ryan Stevenson, Mattew Parker, Jaymie Grace, Tori Kelly, Unspoken, Lecrae... (I could go on for a while, so I'm just gonna stop there)

 

 

 

 

 

Fantasy Idea Corner:

 

(This is likely to be updated every time a new idea pops into my head)

 

(largely, if not entirely based on stuff I've read from other people, so not exactly original)

​Here's an idea for a fanfiction that I'll probably never write

​...As in, 86% certainty that I won't

 

 

Tony Stark A. K. A. "Iron Man" = Hiro Hamada A. K. A.... "?" (Not sure he has a superhero name)

Steve Rogers A. K. A. "Captain America" = Jack Overland Frost A. K. A. "Winter Soldier" (I know, name's taken, not caring over here)

Bruce Banner A. K. A. "The Hulk" = Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III A. K. A. "The Night Fury"

Thor= Merida (They're so cool they don't need an alter ego)

Natasha Romanoff A. K. A. "Black Widow"= Elsa A. K. A. "Frost Bite"

Clint Barton A. K. A. "Hawkeye"= Eugene Fitzherbert A. K. A. "Flynn Rider" ('Cause I don't see how Rapunzel would get caught up in this in the first place)

Nick Fury = Nick Fury ('Cause he's awesome. I'd put Frozone, but that's a little too much ice for my liking)

​Maria Hill = Heather the Unhinged

​Agent Coulsen = Agent Coulsen ('Cause who else is gonna do his job?)

 

​Loki= Merida's brothers (Because I'm evil)

 

​(If you've had any experience with marvel in general, you probably get the idea)

 

 

​This one I'm actually more likely to do at some point... After the HTTYD trilogy is over... So it's gonna be a while before it comes out.

 

The short summary is that when my OC, Paz, is grown up, she'll become an immortal glob trotter.

...I know, that's kinda lame...

 

​BUT IT'S HAPPENING SO BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELTS BECAUSE WE'RE GOING ON A WILD RIDE!!!*

 

 

​*(Actually if you'd just go about your life and forget this was here that'd be great)

 

​And now for random quotes!

 

​"Why are we stopped?​"

​"The light's red.​"

​"... THERE ARE NO RED LIGHTS IN A CAR CHASE!!!​"

Gogo and Wasabi in Big Hero 6

 

 

"Ooohhh..."

"Ooohhh yes."

"You, sir are playing a dangerous game. Keeping this much raw... vikingness contained. THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES!​"

"I'll take my chances. Sword. Sharpen. Now."

Hiccup and Gobber in How to Train Your Dragon.

 

 

*Cap's shield flies though the air doing awesomeness.*

"That thing doesn't obey the laws of phisics at all!"

Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War

 

​​"Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard, and he is my brother.​"

"He killed eighty people in two days."

"... He's adopted?​"

Thor and Black Widow in Avengers.

 

"Sometimes the only payoff for having any faith is when it's tested again and again everyday."

Immortals by Fall Out Boy.

 

"Great Scott!"

"Yeah, I know, it's heavy."

Marty McFly and Doc Brown ​in Back to the Future III

(When they switched catchphrases for a scene)

 

"You dare challenge Megamind?"

"This town isn't big enough for two super-villains!"

"Oh, you're a villain all right. Just not a super one."

"Yeah? What's the difference?"

"PRESENTATION!"

Megamind and Titan in Megamind (the movie)

 

 

 

 

​(More pictures/stuff coming soon A.K.A. at some point in the unforseeable future)

  Thanks for reading my sigg​y!

Biography:

 

 Hello everyone! I'm CristalWings! I'm  a lead elder of the top 100 clan Unique Legacies, and a member of top 10 clan, The Dragon Racers! I have been playing SOD for over a year now!  I love all of  the HTTYD movies and seasons! (but i like the first best!). Like most I adore Hiccup and Toothless! I am not a member sadly but I dont like the idea of paying real money to play a game. (that doesnt mean im not a serious player!)  But I have done a free month of membership and did quite a bit of the packs! I love painting, (my account pic is usually one that I painted!!) singing,acting and of course playing SOD! My favorite music artists are TobyMac, Britt Nicole, Mandisa, and For King and Country! I often watch SilverWeed San on youtube! I love dogs and horses! My favorite color is light blue which is how i came up with my name. I have bought the Edge, Icestorm Island, Impossible Island, and the deathsong pack. Whenever i find an argument i try to stop it with everyone leaving happy so i guess im a Peacemaker here in the game. Im always posting something cool so check out my track! I love you all! Keep on shining!!!

Upload your image to say, Tinypic.com. You'll get a bunch of codes in your face after it's done. You can pick the 'direct url for layouts', copy it, then go to your post in the making. Click the portrait icon at the top of the editor.

 

 

Paste the URL where it says URL, click ok and voila. That should be it.

 

But please please please  for the love of everything holy, don't upload anything much broader than 650px (unless there's a good reason haha). I saw the video by Swift Champion for example (didn't see silverweed's, it's unnecessarily long soz), and they uploaded a whopping 1600px image for display. Apart from the fact that it's completely unnecessary, it causes more bad than good. It makes everything super laggy for a lot of people because the number of people who upload humongous images in piles and piles is way, way too high ;_;

You can upload pictures from the computer. That's what uploading is; It uploads an image from one device to another or to a(n online) host.

One more thing though...

How do you take screenshots inside SoD? I tried pressing the windows button and the PrtSc button at the same time, but it only screenshot my desktop screen.

i have yet to figure that

i have yet to figure that out. I use safari for sod.  I know that you press windows and g at the same time but that doesnt really work for me because my screen doesnt want to be in full and if i go in the game to make it full i cant open the screenshot so.. But if you screenshot a picture it will show up in your computer files. :)

You don't need the windows key unless you want to save from your clipboard to your PC directly. Try just hitting print screen and paste (ctrl+v or edit > paste) into your favourite program. Does that work for you?

No

Whenever I try to take a screenshot in the game, it just takes a picture of my desktop.

Are you using the download, browser or app version? Can you open the snipping tool and use that to make a screenshot?

I'm using the download version.

Also, I can't use the snipping tool either. Whenever I open up the game it uses the whole screen and I can't play and use the other apps at the same time.

Does it work if you run the game in windowed mode?

It doesn't give me that option.

It might be because I have Microsft Edge. Would I be able to run on the internet with a different one?

It shouldn't matter what browser you use if you play the download version of SoD but you could try using something else. Perhaps it'll work?

Thanks a lot!

I just got my dad to help me think outside of my tiny box so now I can screenshoot. Thank you very much, you were extremely helpful!
