So I've been working on this concept for the past year in my spare time, but it's kind of come to a HTTYD RP world mixed with concepts from Jurassic Park + World. I've done a bunch of world building around it and I'll explaian everything to extent if interest is shown.

The RP will be literate, so paragraph responses with possibly multiple threads. It will likely take place on Discord.

I tend to do a bunch of art in relation to my rps, so any characters that are added to the rp will likely be included in sketches per original creator's permission. So if art is any incentive lol.

General premise is that youths from ages 16-25 are provided the opportunity to attend a newly founded program that will allow for individuals chosen to harness dragon riding skills in both sporting, leisure, and military. Dragons do exist on this present-day earth, but they've dwindled to the point of near extinction with only small common species being left in small numbers and individuals of larger species being kept in captivity for study and preservation. Sometime within the last 30 years science has allowed for the growing of new dragonns in an attempt to reach back to the original riding traditions. So now a secluded protected area has an expanding colony of dragons, and supervisors want to bring in young people to restart an age of dragon-human cooperation. 

 

So?

Lets see.. this would make it my... 4th rp? I think I would be able to manage. I am still on break and have a lot of time on my hands. I would defiently be intrested. If you do end up creating this Roleplay, would it have limited spots? If so, PM me when/if you create it so I can snag a spot right off the bat! Unless, you'd accept reservations now. If that is the case... please do save a spot.

Wolf

 Art was done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests, Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair Viking and she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal-like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is naturally good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability to be able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion towards humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

..............................Lyra

 .....................Art was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self-preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn Nyght

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gail Cyrek

 Art was done by Katarile

Gail is very softspoken. She does not like attracting much attention as people have a tendency to stare. She is very insecure about her face and does her best to conceal it. She gets very annoyed if someone asks about it. However, with this silence comes the ability to listen. She observes the world around her and is able to spot even the tiniest of details. This silent brilliance has made her a stellar judge of character. She reads body language very well and has a certain flare of stubbornness about her. Still, she is very dark. Generally, when she speaks, most people cannot hear what she says, which is probably a good thing because what she does say is usually pretty dark or gory. She often says random and slightly disturbing things and speaks extremely softly anyone can barely hear her. Gail seems to be pretty timid but is generally ruthless. She is a bit of a pyromaniac and will do almost anything to get her way.

(Thunder, by Katarile. TYSM)

 

Thunderbird is a very strong and fearless character. She sails the skies with her trusted dragon, Smugde, and touches the seas with her heart. Her father was a sailor of the Løken tribe on an island called Kalfa. Boats have always been a big part of Thunder's life and adventuring is natural to her. In fact, she lives to travel and explore. She never stays in one place for to long because she believes there's to much she hasn't seen. She is fierce, intelligent and an excellent strategist. She loves to learn and is quick to learn it. She can find her way out of tight spots with ease. She is also an excellent axemen. She is swift, agile and flexible. You'll most often see her training on a large sea stack while Smugde either plays with any animal or dragon nearby or sleeping in the shade. She is very adaptable and fairly easygoing, yet, she does have a temper and is not afraid to show it. She will storm off or even give you the silent treatment if you make her really angry. She does not trust easily but will be loyal and kind if you earn it. Dragons trust her relatively quickly with the help of her Hobblegrunt who is kind to all species of dragons as long as they are fairly kind to him. But he does not trust people as easily. in fact, he does not trust people at all. It took Thunderbird two years to earn his full trust. Now they are in separable, they fly in the sky and touch the seas with their hearts, as one.

yeeeee boiiii i'm so glad this has you guys interested! 

 

@Thunder: Yeah, I'd prefer it to be on discord rather than the SOD forums because I can create multiple threads for different areas and character profiles. I'm a stickler for organization. It's super easy to make an account though, and you don't need to download anything unless you'd prefer to.

@Wolf: This is an ​unlimited spot rp!​ I'm hoping to make this a mass storyline cause I love seeing other people's characters, so the more the merrier! (Tell your friendssss)

But yeah the rp just needs some final adjustments and then I'll be posting the threads on discord. Check back here on Saturday for an invite link :)

WOWOWOw, my progress with

WOWOWOw, my progress with this thing is taking way longer than I thought. Sorry about not being able to keep up with the opening date, but I've definitely overestimated my ability to come up with a good plot start that fits with the world, expecially because I want to make it art-based. I've got like different drafts running please chuck me off a cliff.

 

Anyways, again sorry about extending the opening date, but this is going to take a lot longer than anticipated, especially with school. But do check back occasionally as it should (​and I stress this) be up by the 13th, as I'll have waayyyy more free time between 11th and the 12th to finish my maps.

You are creating maps? This is something that I was not aware of. If anything, you deserve the extra time, can't rush talent.
