__________________

Siggy under construction...

 

 

Dragons: 5

Level: 35

UTD: 44,000 (Or something like that)

Stars: 1 1/2 silver

Trophies: 650+ (I'm working on getting more)

Double- sided ax shown below.

 

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 pneumonia and died. Gothi, who had grown fond of the child in that short time, decieded to raise her as an apprentince.

 

Suprisingly enough, Paz has not had a fear of water growing up, but rather a fear of the dark/ unknown. Also, due to where Gothi's house is located, she doesn't leave often, and when she does, it's so that she can run errands and/ or explore the woods outside of Berk, so she doesn't have many friends. she has stumbled across Hiccup and Toothless's cove once or twice during those excursions, but doesn't go very often. Due to her partial isolation, when she's left home alone by Gothi, she's normally daydreaming, singing, talking to herself, practicing with her ax on an imaginary foe, or just staring down at the village below her. She also has difficulting expressing emotions to others due to her lack of social contact, so she normally tries to keep them to herself, believing that she's overreacting. She enjoys flying with Minty as much as possible, since it's the only time she feels truely free.

 

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 permenant scar across her right eye when training her first dragon Minty. Fortunetly it doesn't affect her vision.

 

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

Dislikes: Being belittled because of her occasionall naiveness and/ or appearance (She looks 1-2 years younger than she actually is), the dark/ unknown, romance, pink, girly things in general.

 

((Note: Besides her ax, Paz also carries a shield on her back and 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 telescope and various other items))

 

((Funfact: Paz means peace in Spanish, which I did not know when first creating the character))

                  

In game dragons:

Dragon's name: mint chip

Nickname: Minty

Gender: Female

Species: Deadly Nadder

Class: Tracker

Level: 30

Color: Mint Green (Hence the name)

Personality: A loyal dragon with a generous helping of 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.

 

Backstory: ((Based off a role play I'm currently in;

http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/let%E2%80%99s-go-train-dragon-and-save-day-9-spot-httyd-rp-closed))

 

          Being one of the last few dragonless vikings on Berk, Hiccup sends her and a small group of teens to Dragon Island to find and train their own dragons. On the evening that they'd arrived, Paz decieded to explore the woods surrounding the campsite by herself. It turns out that Minty had seen her and started to follow her. When Paz finally realized that she was being hunted, Minty had pounced on her, only to start clawing at her satchel for the dragon nip she had packed for the trip. Thinking quickly, Paz grabbed a small amount of the plant and threw it to the other side of the clearing. When Minty got off her to chase after it, Paz tried to sneek behind her to smooth her tail spikes. This annoyed Minty, so she took off, smacking Paz to the ground with her tail, scratching her right eye. The next day, Paz returned the next day to find the Nadder and apologized for her actions. Minty seemed to accept the gesture, and that's how it all started!

Up in the toolbar at the top

Up in the toolbar at the top of the message/siggy box, there is an image of a little house with grass and a sun. Click on that, and paste the URL of the image into the indicated area. You can get this image URL by uploading to an website such as tinypic or photobucket. On the image box, you can adjust the size of the image, and click ok to insert that image.

Also sometimes you can find cool pictues on google and copy and paste useing the little house icon in the edits. You dont have to create an acount with someone, though it is not as limited or slower. Sometimes doing this the pictures dont even show! But thats small. Hope it helps! :D

Biography:

 

 Hello everyone! I'm CristalWings! I'm an elder of the clan Unique Legacies! It is now my one year aniversary of playing SOD!  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, 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't upload pictures

You can't upload pictures from computer. You can only upload picture from internet ( social site etc). You need to copy it's URL and put it in your message.

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?
