meanwhile in america, nothing makes sense

Not in Australia! Things start at the start of the year, and end at the end of the year.

funny how things work that way

Year 12 actually! Technically

Year 12 actually! Technically I'd be in my last year now, but after the mental joyride that was first attempt at 11 and also moving cities at the end of the year, I get to do a senior reset and have another crack at it

 

((EDIT: Wait, first grade? How old do u think i am? What is real any more...))

Slightly random but still related question...

If you live somewhere where summer would be in january, does the school year end in summer still? Or is the big break in winter?

Ends in summer. Also begins

Ends in summer. Also begins in summer. Pretty much the entire year is stinking hot and just gross. Term 3 is the only time when it actually gets pretty cold

Hello!

Is anyone interested in the treasure hunt? Should I continue uploading clues? 

 

I'm also thinking of organizing a Dreadfall party with games and contests next week: would anyone be interested in that?

 

Also are there any events you'd like to see happen? I'm just new to this and I'm not sure if I don't see anyone around much because you're busy or because the events I propose aren't particularly inspiring.

I could also do some purely forum events if you want to do something but don't have time to go in-game.

Me for all of them! Id love

Me for all of them! Id love to do a treasure hunt and Dreadfall party, i think it would be awesome! Cant wait to meet some of you in game! =-)

Maybe we could schedual a meeting for all clan members to talk about ideas and stuff every once in a while, say once every month(either on forum or in game) that way you could get many opinions and ideas from clan members, and hopefully a bunch of people would show up!

I could try, I'm not sure how possible it is going to be on a regular basis - it's very hard to get everyone at one place in one time.

Also, the treasure hunt has already begun!

Please check the journal: there's a link in one of the first letters posts as well as in my signature.

I'll try to work on an in-game meeting next week - I can't promise anything though, because I suddenly found myself with a ton of work.

And if we made a simple chat channel on discord? just for doing better comunications (you can download discord on phone, pc or use the website)

Yesss

I agree! I’m always on discord and that is one of the best chat places for clans or similar community type things.

I'm not sure

It would create another requirement for clan members - I'm pretty sure not everyone has it downloaded. Also, I'm not entirely sure all of our members even check the forum pages, let alone a whole different communication system. Plus I've gone on their website and, honestly, I don't see how it's much different from here.

Why do you think it will be better than just forum chat?

You don't need to do the capcha all times and this can make fasters comunications,is like whatsapp but without phone number

Also easy and smooth voice

Also easy and smooth voice chat that can be used in-game which actually gives recognizable human voices instead of static, EVEN if you have terrible internet.

Hmmm

I mean, I'm still not sure - I kind of like the forum and I don't like downloading stuff onto my computer. I might look into it during the winter holidays.

But seriously, what kind of name is Discord for a chat system - isn't it synonymous to disagreements/ lack of harmony?

you don't know h.ell until you leave it

????????Forum??? Good???? Like yeah the people are nice and its fun but its poorly designed, a bit harsh on the eyes, terrible admin service and response rate, you can't see if people have actually read important stuff, gets spammed on a weekly basis, and you can't exactly filter what you see or quickly remove unrelated content. W Discord you can pin posts so they don't get lost to the eternal Void +restricting chat threads so ppl cant reply to them, only view.

It was literally made for game-related organisation and communication. This is, well, semi-functional at best.

 

(EDIT- pretty sure its a play on Discourse, actually. Which makes more sense)

I'm gotta disagree. I like

I'm gotta disagree. I like how the forums are organized better than discord. With discord, there are only a few "threads" each of which has a very large amount of posts. There is no end. With the forums there is a beggining and end post. Each thread has its own topic, instead of everything in one place. The admin rate is very understandable, saying how many users there are, and what they have to do. (expanions, new dragons, bugs, server problems, user problems, new items, loki's mazes if its time for a new one, keeping watch on the forums, ect. )  The responce rate is not the best, but people have things they need to do in life, so you just have to be patient. Unrelated content is just part of how it is. Its on discord, its on the forums. Besides, sometimes they are funny or intresting. If you want to read announcements by the admins, just find a post Brynjolf made, and find the threads made by the admins in the tracking section. Or just go to announcements. If you find a thread or post you like, just track it. Sure it wont take you to the exact post, but it will take you to the thread.

Im just stating my opinion. Not going against anyone. We all have different opinions.

I know that the forum has its technical downsides -like the inability to delete posts or edit stuff once it's been replied to, but I like how SoD related it is. I don't really know how else to say it, but it's just ... cosy.

I can look into the Discord thing during break, but I don't really have the time/energy now to figure out how it works, download it, etc.

Don't worry if you preffer the forum. If I do end up making a Discord group (eventually), I won't make it obligatory and I'll still do all the important announcements/conversations on chat here. Making downloading an extra, SoD unrelated app required to be in the clan just wouldn't work in my opinion.

Dreadfall

Is anyone up for an in-game meeting this week? We could do hide and seek, racing, a costume contest or any other other games/contests of your suggestion.

Don't worry, no gem-spending required. If anyone is interested, which days & times do you prefer? This week or next. I can do any except Sunday, Monday morning (Greenwich time) or Tuesday.

10am would be ideal for me

10am would be ideal for me cause it puts me at 8pm. I can give or take 2 hours tho

 

If y'all need help figuring this out this is how I did it (just select greenwich, then add ur city/area and move the slider)

New art program

Hello! I've just downloaded a new art program and I'm trying it out. What do you think?

 

I know I've got the proportions a bit wrong, but I've done them in like, 15 min each. If anyone wants their dragon drawn in one of thse styles, I can do it  - I need the practice (don't expect wonders though, I know for a fact that some of the people in this clan are way better computer artists than me XD).

Hello!

Hello fellow voyagers!

 

I would like to propose an activity to get to know your clan-mates.

 

Here is how it works: I'll start by asking a question and you answer it for your OC who is in this clan. Then you can ask your own question. Questions can be anything that will give you a better picture of the vikings who are in the clan with you, like favorite color, siblings, how they met their dragon... You do not have to answer a question if you don't want to.

 

Rules: be nice, no swearing, etc., you know the drill.

 

Ok, here's the first question: what does your viking like to eat for breakfast?

Example

So, I'll start: Keu Ray likes to eat oatmeal with any berries/fruits she picked on the previous day and maybe eggs and ham. She also has to have tea, for which she trades at the southern market.

Hello!

Hello!

I'm not sure which event to do next so I want to put it to vote!

 

Question 1: If I do it in the next couple of weeks, who will participate?

(I will wait until winter break if its' less than three people)

 

Event options:

1) Funny caption contest

2) Best farm decorations (as soon as Snoggletog decorations come out)

3) Best Snoggletog Greeting Card contest

4) Best Snoggletog tree bobble (real life - you'd have to actually make it and take a photo of it)

5) Your own option

Sandy has eat my subject

I think I can partecipate, I choose the farm decoration (is all or only snoggeltog?)

If is all I'll use my main viking (name: XxSilver.NightYTxX / clan: Dark Knight Fury Racers)

Hello

It would be winter/Snoggletog themed, but you'd have to take part with your clan viking. In an in-game event your other vikings are technically not clan members.

For a 5, could I suggest

For a 5, could I suggest dressing up a blizzard dragon? But not ingame with skins n saddles or what, but taking a screenshot of any wintery dragon and editing in a costume or something.

I'm guessing by now most ppl would have at least the Groncicle.

Yes, we could do that.

 

By the way, even if a contest doesn't end up being run now, I'm going to try and do as many as I can during winter break.

Leaving for a bit

Hello!

As of tomorrow, I will be leaving for a place with no internet (this was not in my plans at the beginning of break, but oh well). I am not sure when I will be back - probably in 1-2 weeks.

 

So, Happy New Year in advance :D !

Hihi

I apologize deeply for my absense. I took a break and finally decided to return. Balefire and Eira are back to explore and draw the many types of dragons.
