So I just wanna say it.  The Dreadfall quest line was pretty trash this year.  I mean, last year was rough too, but not like this.  This year was a chaotic mess from start to finish. 

 

Let me elaborate:

 

1. What happened to the Boneknapper?  Like, there was this whole thing about how the Boneknapper disappeared and nobody could find it.  Was it alive?  Was it chased off?  Where is it?  What will happen?  This was never answered and was kinda just a waste of time.

 

2.  The Bonestormer never got a good ending!  Like, it runs around a cave, destroys the school (apparently, but we never actually saw that.  More on that in a moment), then just...disappears from the plot.

 

3.  Badly designed on all accounts!  I could not find the Archeologist!  He was never at Dragon's Edge.  I had to go all the way to Icestorm Island to even talk with him.  Then I had a glitch in the caves with the Bonestormer!  And then there was the missing animation at the school!  Like, I was supposed to approach the Bonestormer and try and tame it...but NOPE!  Never got the chance!  Just jump ahead to the next bit of dialogue!  Guess we just need to use our immigration.

 

4. Did we even get a conclusion?  Like, Gobber just kinda lost his train of thought (and the designers lost their will to program).  He's just like, “Hmm... We gotta real problem.  Guess we need to solve it.”  And that’s it!  Nothing more.  We just got a wild dragon plotting at the school, a missing Boneknapper, and a holiday to throw together!  (Unless they are insinuating that Hiccup and Gobber captured the Bonestormer, broke its will to be free, and threw it at whatever student gathered up enough candies.)

 

All in all, I am VERY disappointed!

 

I don’t care about events!  I don’t care about the rewards!  I don’t care about the hybrids!  The only reason I care at all is for the quests.  At this time, they are the only source of “canon” (used losesly) material coming from the HTTYD universe. And, with no evidence of any other expansions in the future, I want my new quests to be worth it!  I don’t expect an epic sage, but I do expect a decently cohesive plot with an identifiable end point!

 

What are your thoughts?  Was I too harsh?  Did I miss something?  Please discuss below.

(P.S.  To any of the writers on this Forum, there is a final entry in this Dreadfall's plotline that needs writing.  Does not have to be long, just as long as it wraps things up. Just saying...)

    Hi, I'm Lack Lunason. I'm called that because I lack many things, and I'm a lunatic. I just put son on the end to make it sound more like a viking name. I'm also a Christ follower.

 

      Here are just a few things that I am:

  1. A procrastinator.
  2. Nice (mostly).
  3. Kind (don't listen to those that say otherwise).
  4. Adventurous.
  5. Lazy.
  6. A dreamer.
  7. And I'm slightly crazy.

     I've been around SoD for a long time. I think I was one of the first thousand to leave Berk and sail to the school. I'm happily part of the bold clan known as POTATO BROTHERS. I have over four-thousand trouphies, although, I don't like racing much. On the other hand, I'm a master farmer.

 

      On the ranking on the forum, I've completed/on the following: Jarl, Forager, Wilderness Explore, Viking Warrior, Dragon Trainer, Drott, Dragon Master, Chief, Berk's Power Player, and......

Quotes I love

 

"Once I set the sea alight with a single fiery breath....

Once I was so mighty that I thought my name was death....

Sing out loud until you're eaten, song of melancholy bliss....

For the mighty and the middling all shall come to THIS...."

Stoick The Vast. How To Train Your Dragon: Book 5. Creessida Cowell.

 

"I sailed so far to be a King, but the time was never right.....

I lost my way on a stormy past, got wrecked in starless night....

But let my heart be wrecked by hurricanes and my ship by stormy weather....

I know I am a Hero...and a Hero is....FOREVER!

In another time, another place, I could have been a King....

But in my castle's ruined towers the lonely seabirds sing.....

I burned up my Tomorrows, I cannot go back ever....

But I am still a Hero....and a Hero is.......FOREVER!

Up with your sword and strike at the gale......

Ride the rough seas for those waves are your home......

Winters may freeze but our hearts do not fail.....

Heroes.......Hearts......FOREVER!

You are never alone if the sea is your friend......

Riding the waves of impossible quests.....

If it doesn't end well, then it isn't the end.....

A Hero.....Fights.....FOREVER!

The hero cares not for a wild winter's storm.....

For it carries him swift on the back of the wave.....

All may be lost and our hearts may be worn.....

BUT A HERO.....FIGHTS.....FOREVER!"

By Drake the Dragon for my Dreadfall Secret Santa gift!

This is a tidal class dragon that I created, called the Siren Song.  It has gills for breathing underwater, but can still survive above water for short periods of time.  The only time these dragons are seen out of the water is when it pulls itself out of the sea with its two legs to catch prey.  It lures it's victims in by flashing the bulb at the end of its antenna in a pattern that is mesmerizing to dragons.  Any unfortunate dragon who sees this blinking light will be drawn towards it.  As soon as it's prey is in sight, the Siren Song will then snag the dragon in its long, nimble tail, and drag it down into the sea.  Once in the water, the Siren Song either drowns its victim, squeezes it to death with it's tail, or injects its paralyzing venom and eats the dragon alive.  Overall, it's kinda like the tidal version of a Death Song.

Wiggles the whispering d.eath ate my subject

I've spoken out about this once or twice. I hope someone sees the confusion and then proceeds to make it a catylist for how the charicters end up in some adventure in the future. It would not be h.ard to write it as someone had not really explained to Gobber what the boneknapper issue was/he missheard it and so thought it was about a dragon causing trouble the whole time. Therefore he had thought that telling the group not to worry about the dragon as it's simply shy was the end of the matter.

Now that he knows there was not a troublesome dragon as the origanal problum and a boneknapper was IN trouble (rather then being mystaken for the troublesome bonestormer that turned out to just be shy but frustraited it wasn't joining the fun or...something) I could imagine him asking the player to please help him find what happened to that dragon as he feels bad that he would divert attention away from a dragon who needed help to worry about an annoying one the way he did.

 

This would be a nice setup to pull charicters into discovering some plot from the main bad guys or even just a leadup to running into whatever dragon is part of the next event.

 

While I don't have a lot of hope of this idea catching on I'm going to bring it up anyway in case somebody sees it and decided to take the turn an oops into something more substancial thing. If you've got good plothole fixing skills you can turn many oopses into just parts of a better story so if they wanted to they could indeed use this skill instead of just leaving the broken quest broken.

Or...semi-alternitivly to my other idea but also kind of adding to it.

Since SOD is so hybrid central and seems to want to go down that road. They could have it so Stormheart is involved in this. What if she's capturing dragons that have been known to hybridize in the past on their own so she knows it will be easyer to convince them to do it again in captivity to produce an army of hybrids?

The boneknapper may be a parent with another boneknapper right now but maybe it fancyed stormcutters at some point in the past and the bonestormer is one of its previous offspring who now, despite Gobbers assumtions of it wanting to be part of the dreadfall celebrations, really just wants to draw Berk's attention to what happened to its mother as its half sibling is currently left abandoned after the mother was captured for Stormheart's hybrid b.reeding program.

 

Maybe they can even tie Stormheart into why there's a sudden boom of these hybrids in the first place. They did just come so out of nowhere that the in-game charicters aknowlaged it.

Anyway, have a nice time on the forum! And remember to be nice to everyone.

(Feel free to PM me for anything! I love a good conversation! :D)

There used to be an art gallery here, and i apologise for all the great artists who made drawings for me, but sadly the forum decided that it did not want the last part of my signature, and doomed all the drawings.

Long story short, the bottom half of my signature got deleted, and I can't find the drawings.

My apologies again, hopefully it will get fixed!
