I have been extreamly pacitent ever since the last major update that the game recived, which has been roughly, what, month ago? Two months?, all due to the fact that I CAN NOT PLAY THE GAME AT ALL!

ONLY ONCE have I been able to load in the log in screen so I can input my username and password, and that was when the game crashed before anything could be loaded in. Ever since then, I have never been able to see such, all I get is a loading screen and one slow gear spinning in the cornor.

I miss my dragons, and I DO NOT want all the MONEY I SPENT on the freaking game to be wasted because the devolpoers couldn't leave the game alone. I need help, does anyone have suddgestions on I can fix this. I've already uninstalled the game and reinstalled, and it's only made things worse.

My SoD Vikings!

I've been playing SoD for as long as the game has been out, and a deadicated player at that. Whenever I'm not in-game, I'm most likely on the forums, since it's such a wonderful place to be!

If you ever need a friend to complete an achivement, call on mine! We can (try) to help in anyway!

NO CHEATING or HACKING (sorry, not sorry). I worked too hard in this game with TOTAL HONESTY that I will never provide you with fire hacks, foolish codes or WHATEVER. I AM AGAINST IT ALL.

Hypno Serpeneye the Brave (female, DXUFME) (main viking)

Lusca Dragondawn the Fiery (female, E4C7ID) (second favorite)

Andrea Iceian the Flying (female, E7P2JY)

Miscellaneous Artwork

All artwork can be found on my DeviantArt page! Feel free to check out all of it out!

Shea (left) and Paris (right), two fan-made Flightmares of mine, and both mates (Shea is female, Paris is male). Paris is also seen with his rider, Taiga Krummholz.

Paris and Shea's offical family! With four hatchlings!

Key: Cepheus (m, eldest) - Bottom Right; Circinus (m, second eldest) - Top Right; Cassiopeia (f, mdidle daughter) - Top Left); Eridanus (m, youngest) - Bottom Left

Above is one of my more recent lineless works, called Throw Off The Bowlines. It originally started out as a dragon standing on a beach, but it slowly shifted to just the beach. . . Oops?

Very proud of it though!

This here is one of my first ever attempts at something nature-related when it comes to digital drawing, and I'm still impressed with it today. It was inspired from one of the songs that I was listening to at the time.

With these, I gave myself only an hour to complete, timing myself. I used screenshots from SoD as references. I really like how they came out - the Flightmare looks really cool without the lines.

This here is a squad meme with four of my original characters (they aren't based on any fandoms). I'm really proud of how they came out since I'm not that great with humans.

My second ever squad meme, with all of my vikings! It took me two days to complete, but SO worth it in the end!

Going in a circle, we have: Hypno Serpenteye, Fraener Nightcrest, Neptunica of Coves, Drouge Devere the Ember, Penguin of New York, Andrea Iceian the Flying, Moonflyer the Athena, Lusca Dragondawn, and Morrend Valkyrie.

(what a mouthfull)

Another squad, staring some of my Night and Light Fury Ocs, which includes:

Night Furies: Thunder (top right - green eyes), Andromeda (bottom left-middle - purpleish shirt), Stargazer (top left-middle - blue eyes), and Forbidden (bottom right-middle - black jacket)

Light Furies: Butterfly (top left - blue hair), Shay (bottom left - grey-red clothing, and Venezia (bottom right - peach eyes)

The newest group squad created, known as the FP squad - which stands for Forums Persona Squad. These guys are the behind-the-scenes workers who meet your everday, dragon - requestin` needs!

There is Dr. Easton (bottom right), Andy (bottom left), Trader Leo (short of Trader Leonidas) (top left), and Maysun (top right)

 

Random Screenshots!

(it was going to happen eventully)

I finally got to make Paris! While I'm not a fan of pink dragons, I've made an exception with him. I took this screenshot rather "poorly" since I was so excited of getting my friend!

This here is Dreadflight, my Titan Flightmare! I had saved a Titan-age-up just for her, hatched on Dreadfall! Her orange and black colors work perfectly with my favorite holiday!

Meet Wendigo, my first ever Death Song! He has a very large ego and is dating my friend's Monstrous Nightmare, Lapis!

My beloved Oceania - my starter dragon (I got her waaaay before the new beginning, so I got a Deadly Nadder first) from my ancient School of Dragon viking: Hypno Serpenteye. She's been with me for a long time and will always hold a special place in my heart ^-^

SNIFF SNIFF! PERFECTION!

A cute little college that I did with screenshots of my first ever Deathgripper, Eitr!

Created @ canva.com

XD Meet cute, baby Onda (his full name is Onda Gufo). He's Penguin of New York's main dragon, and a very loyal Shovelhelm at that! (I love Shovelhelms so much ;3)

This is Ithaqua, my only Slithersong of current, and daughter of Wendigo (let's just say he cheated on his Monstrous Nightmare crush for a rather beautiful Slithersong. . .). This screenshot is an odd one since it's a picture of when Ithaqua felt like breaking psychics and try to fly as a teen. . . she ended up glitching into the ground XD

Happy Snoggletog to me, I guess!

Can't forget my mighty steed - Soundmopi! Well, I don't actully call him that, he's more infamously known as WHAAAAAAALIMER!!!!!!!!! (with a deep voice and all). It's a long story. . .

Feel free to say hi to Eye's newest Death Song, a cute little lady named Rougarou! To be honest, I kind of plan to keep as a little baby for a while (mostly because a) I've run out of things to get EXP from and b) I forgot how ADORABLE baby Death Songs are!).

You can find out more about her on my (rather massive) Dragon Collection!

You've made it to the bottom, thank you so much for reading through!

would have more, but every time I try to, it never saves (guess I love to share too much)

Thank you again, hope you have a great day!

Hi Andrea! We're sorry to hear you are unable to log into the game. Does this occur in more than one platform or device? Do you get an error message? Do let us know and please include your username and viking name. Thank you!

I can only use my Window

I can only use my Window computer to play the game, I hope that answered the "platform, device" part since I don't really understand (I'm not that tech-savy).

Yes, I get several error messages, however they do not apper until about twenty, thirty minutes of a loading screen, so I don't even know if the game is responding.

Username: AndreaEaston

Viking Name: HypnoSerpentEye

(I'm sorry if I appered rude in the first message, I did not mean to apper angry)

Thank you for the info...

No worries, we understand you may be frustrated. What does the error message say? Which Windows does your computer have? You're using the PC downloadable, correct? Thanks!

Commonly the error message

Commonly the error message tells me about the server being in a timeout, and when I was at the login screen, I have constantly given the message that I was disconnected from my internet (when I 100% possitive was not).

I do believe I have a Windows 7, however since we've taken it in to a compture specalist due to a virus issue, it's been attempting to download Windows 10. This was a few years ago.

And yes, I am using the PC download, straight from this website.

Thank you for the update. When you reinstall, have you tried removing previous downloads as this may sometimes interfere with new downloads.

Yes

Yes I have, such as removing previous SoD installers and other quiet useless things that take up needed room. I may try to uninstall and reinstall again and see if I have the same issue as before.
