I really wish we could choose the older player models. I've always been just a little bit below the age group of the riders since the franchise started, but I'm pretty sure most SOD players are younger. I'd just love to be able to have a character around the age of the riders.

Some Things About Me!

Before we begin, here are some minor facts about me, for future reference.

You can call me Squiid, or Squiidy.

If you are having a bad day, feel free to send me a PM- even if I don't know you! I exist on the forum not only to meet fellow Dragonites and to RP and have fun, I also want to make your day better, whether that be with words of encouragement or wry sarcasm. 

I am a Chirstian! If you ever want to chat, I am open. :D

And, I love a good joke!

Meet Stormy Eyes, otherwise known as Stormy. As a child, she washed ashore Berk in a basket, and was taken under the wing of the Jorgenson Clan. It quickly became obvious that Stormy has pure Berserker tendencies, and most often, they're rather uncontrollable. Really, she means no harm- but running around the school with an axe, especially early in the morning, tends to have an effect on certain students around the school.

When she first came to the School, after encouragement from her clan, Stormy was viewed as dangerous and untrustworthy. She was only a teenager at the time, but she worked hard to make it obvious that she was much different than her bloodthirsty ancestors- though she's more closely related to the Berserkers than she would like to know.

Stormy's first dragon was a Skrill called Hurricane- she raised him from hatching, and the two have been best friends ever since. You might say the dragon and rider grew up together, and as Stormy won the trust of her fellow classmates and dragon riders, she also became well known for her impressive bond with the sometimes unstable dragon. Life was a challenge for a young dragon trainer and a Skrill, especially as a first dragon, but their equally hyperactive personalities soon forged a bond between them, which is something not seen often between a Skrill and a rider.

Now, at the age of 20, Stormy has grown a reputation as one of the most bombproof students in the School, heading up her own strike team called the Valkyrie Riders, and defending her "home" for the past 8 years. In the course of those 8 years, however, Stormy made a shocking discovery, that forced her to keep a deadly secret for a long, long time.

But she kept that hidden for many years, and the only one she ever told was one of the newest teachers to the School, and later, one of her partners in "crime": Eret son of Eret, former servant of Drago Bludvist. But that's another story....

The Valkyrie Riders

We live,

We die,

We fight,

We win,

Together.

 

I've never cared for castles or a crown that grips too tight,

Let the night sky be my starry roof and the moon my only light.

My heart was born a hero and my stormbound sword won't rest,

I left the harbor long ago on a never ending quest.

Now I'm off to the horizon,

Where the wild wind blows the foam,

Come get lost with me, love, 

And the sea shall be our home.

Dear writers: You know when your characters are having a good day, and then you crash their party with an awful plot twist and its SO MUCH FUN? Yeah, the feeling is kind of like this:

(Okay that was awful, I will excuse myself now)

 

For the Last Time 

A HTTYD AU explaining and expanding on the Dragon Hunters' fanon ties to Drago Bludvist. Very spoilery, very emotional, very dark, and very feely. Takes place after the events of Race to the Edge and shows how the Hunters finally go up in flames- through the eyes of their mastermind.

 

The Quintar Chronicles

Callista Quinn gets an urgent message from her sister in Australia, saying that she's sending her daughter Resa to her in order to keep her safe and "explain" some things. But things go wrong when something- or someone- decides to blow Callista's apartment (and the whole city) up, which, along with Resa's claims of an alternate universe in dire need of Callista's help, sets into motion a course of events that won't be easily subdued.

Aided by a mysterious man called Taurus and his interdimensional traveling system, Callista is faced with a realm of mystical creatures and villains with evil agendas. If there really is another world out there- will Callista give up any chance for a normal life to save it?

 

The Search

In the year 2038, the world stopped spinning. Literally.

A catastrophic event that forces the human race to retreat into massive underground catacombs is so devastating that the world above as we know it is changed forever. Monsters and other creatures crawl out of the rubble. Humans are now subterranean creatures, living underground. The seasons, climate, and geography has been so drastically altered that things might never be the same again.

Years have passed. Every year, a "Sector"- or a district of humans living in what is now called the Underlands- is chosen for the Election. Four teenage villagers are selected to become Searchers; trained explorers who will explore the lands above.

Frederick thinks there's absolutely no way he's going to make it into the Election- nor does he want to. He'd be perfectly content staying below ground with his family and friends. But he can't control his destiny- and when he's tossed into a life-threatening adventure with three other young people, he knows he can't stop it.

 

The Key of Doomed Souls

Kinda explains itself, doesn't it? PotC fanfiction. A little bit of crazy, and a whole lot of madness.

 

Dystopia

The lands of Farrador are prosperous and (for the most part) quite peaceful. Wes lives a simplistic life as Captain of the Guard, training his regiment and patrolling the lush and beautiful lands of his home, though they seldom go into battle against the other kingdoms that are spread throughout the world. Instead, they battle monsters and creatures of unknown origins and frightening forms. But one week out of the whole year is set aside for festives- the Midsummer Festival, which not only is the most content and peaceful time of the year, full of celebrating and feasts, but a prime time for things to grow. Crop fields grow tenfold, trees shoot for the sky, and forests seem to expand on their own. It is certainly a time for celebration.

But the night of a grand feast, near the middle of the Midsummer Festival, one of King Mikael's trusted prophets receives a dire warning and a terrible prophecy. These events are closely followed by disaster, and when things go from bad to worse, six prophesied people- including Wes- must set out to brave their dangerous world and stop things from getting any worse.

 

The Siren's Lament (working title, it's kinda eh, PM me with any suggestions)

Captain Flynn, leader of a well-worn band of smugglers and privateers, is the commander of the vessel the Governess. He was raised on tales of sirens- wolves with the sweet voices of maidens, vixens of the sea. One of them, an ancient legend named Mirelei, has evaded his crew for quite some time. Dubbed the "Siren Hunter" by his crewmates, Flynn is searching for one siren, and one in particular- but he got more than he bargained for.

Flynn soon discovers he's not the only one on the hunt for Mirelei, but soon he begins to wonder if Mirelei really is a vicious creature, like the one that was sung about while he was just a boy. He has to make his decision soon- because if not, Mirelei's life- and his own- might be hanging in the balance.

An amazing drawing of Mirelei as a mermaid by TosiLohi! Thank you SO MUCH!

 

Squiid's Characters

Well, here's where I put all my RP and non-RP cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.

Eternally under construction, probably, since I procrastinate :D

 

Skari

A treasure hunter, a scoundrel, and a grave-robber; can you get much more untrustworthy than that? Well, Skari sure can. Unreliable and shifty, Skari uses his quick wit and charming personality to wriggle his way out of the toughest spots. He has a particular liking for shiny objects and is considered a thief-for-hire, occasionally, risking life and limb (though he's not overly fond of that). Once acquainted with him, you either realize right away he's not to be trusted- or, usually, you realize that much too late. On rare occasions, though, you can break open his heart of stone and find a soul of gold inside...well, I could be speaking literally or figuratively.

 

Lenora

You won't hear much about Nellie on these forums, since I never RP with her, but in the rare case I say something about her, it's probably her superb shooting skills. Mildly terrifying, but if you're on her side, it's quite useful. She's got a lively personality, loyal to a fault and completely, blatantly honest. Though I mentioned her loyalty, it's true she's loyal to one person- her boss, of whom she self-appointed herself his personal bodyguard. Needless to say, he doesn't really mind. Especially since he sort of needs one.

 

Finn

Ah, Finn. Used primly in magic/cyborg/or-anything-like-that RPs, Finn is an interesting case. With the ability to shapeshift into a dolphin at will, you might say his name is apt...ha! Get it? Finn? Okay, I'll leave now. Anyways, he also has a metal arm, of which he's modified to do various things with. And yes, when he shapeshifts into a dolphin, he has a metal fin. It's rather funny. He's a huge sweetheart, which isn't saying anything for his rather bad past, and he likes long swims in the ocean in his free time...

 

Iduna 

Who said the Grimborn boys didn't have any family? (Well, no one, exactly.) I can't really say much about Iduna without giving a bunch of Race to the Edge spoilers, but she's observant, gentle, and quiet; and, honestly, no one exactly knows how she ended up marrying Viggo Grimborn and keeping a close eye on all his operations Beyond the Archipelago. She seriously can be scary if she wants to. Beware.

 

More coming soon! Whee! -dances away from all my impending tasks-

 

 

 

And here is the best Hiccup gif I have ever found. Enjoy.

oh Hiccup sweetie what are you doing with your face??

A tribute to the fun personality-based choices you can make in Star Wars: the Old Republic.

I have two Sith Lord characters. One of them is sophisticated, collected, a devoted servant of the Sith Empire, and a really all around Viggo-style villain. The other is absolutely insane and defected from the Galactic Empire because they wouldn't let him have a pet Nexu. 

Meet Chayaraa Argos and Tavos Xan, the chaos and order of the Sith Empire.

Well, you survived to the end, and now you probably know way too much about me :D The more you know, right? No? Okay. Anyways...

May the Force be with you!

Noooo....

Last thing we need are new player models... Especially from Jumpstart Games. Want to know why? Here was the original design in their first MMO.

Not that great, until you compare what their new design is.

Honestly, I like the old design more than the new one.

It's time for Gorge to grow up

That is exactly what I was worried would happen soon after the second movie came out. I thought a feature might be added for our avatars to grow up when they reached a certain adventurer level. At the time my character was still 13 years old and I was on the small side for my age (17), so I hoped Gorge wouldn't have to grow up yet. I myself still felt like a kid.

 

Now that I'm a young adult and my character is getting there, I would welcome the introduction of grown-up models for our avatars. Besides, we have several titan wings available to show their strength and continued survival, so why not let us grow with them? Even if it cost a couple hundred gems or so I would follow through with it now!

Gorge's dragons + their stories:

Sparkflare

Female titan wing Nightmare, age 49

Found on Dragon Island July 19, 2013

Cheerful; ferocious in battle; easily distracted; excitable; reckless flyer.

 

   Sparkflare was one of the Red Death's subjects. Her preferred attack method when raiding Berk was to avoid direct confrontation with humans and just steal the food while other dragons kept them occupied. She used her dark scales to her advantage by sneaking into the village at night before flaming up and scaring the Hooligans out of their wits. She could be a bit moody because of the Red Death's severity, but overall tried to be friendly with her fellow dragons.

   Once their queen was killed she lived a much happier life on Dragon island. About a year later she noticed a human child wandering into the volcano with her favourite food, mutton! What a baffling turn of events this was. She was eager to see what this boy was up to. To her surprise, the Night Fury had come with him, another human on his back. So after bonding with the boy she allowed him to climb onto hers too.

 

Streamglide

Male Windwalker, age 2 ½

Rescued from hunters July 23, 2016

Caring & comforting; rescues other dragons; brave; stealthy; nimble.

 

   This shy young dragon didn't really feel like he could fit in with the others in his snowy and mountainous habitat, as no other Windwalkers his age lived there. Because of his shaggy fur and floppy wings his parents sheltered him and made sure he didn't wander far off on his own. As he shed his fur he became a more efficient flyer, able to travel around to any island he pleased as long as no humans lived there.

   On one flight he spotted several man-made wooden sea dragons with no humans left on top of them. Or so he thought. Before he knew it they were shooting sticks at him! He banked to the left and retaliated with a lightning strike that crippled the flimsy vessel, reducing the men to wiggling worms. But one of them got up and released a flying net that wrapped around him. Stuffed in a cage, the Windwalker whimpered in fear of the cruel humans. But a few nights later a Monstrous Nightmare attacked them, and to his disbelief a little human climbed off her back!

Adopted Nov 11, 2016                 Bonded Feb 12, 2017 

       Reclusive; disobedient;                     Sociable; co-operative; curious;

 showy; artistic; cheeky.                          lively; protective of me.

 

 

Gargle

Age 15

Persistent & focused; mature; outgoing; confident; short-tempered

 

Gargle's dragon:

Bulkshield

Male Rumblehorn, age 3

Hatched Jan 1, 2015

Friendly; stubborn & determined; moody; relies on brute strength; heroic.

 

   The Rumblehorn mother lay on her side, a single unhatched egg nestled between her legs. There was no way such a sick dragon could care for a baby; she wasn't even going to survive much longer. Trusting Gorge and his Nightmare with the egg was her last hope, and they were not going to let her down.

   Gorge knew how much his brother loved Rumblehorns, so he gave him the egg as a Snoggletog gift. Their dad secretly designed a matching suit of armour for Gargle. And then on New Year's Day the most adorable Rumblehorn burst out of his shell to make his grand entrance into the big wide world, strong and healthy and unbelievably restless.
