  Coming from a land where dragons have been hunted to near-extinction,

  I set out to find one of these magnificent creatures I have only read about.

  After much wandering about and even witnessing some from a distance,

  I met a trader who told stories of islands much further north

  where dragons flew free and riders rose on their backs into the skies.

  I managed to convince him of my genuine non-malicious interest and he

  agreed to take me there.

  

  This is how I arrived on Berk and, after a trial period, the island chief   Hiccup allowed me to join

  the Dragon Training Academy. There I raised my very own deadly nadder, Ocean.

  Since then I have built a base on Sunnystone Island, a tiny volcanic island in the South of the

  Archipelago and even formed my own clan - "The Sunwing Voyagers". Now I travel far and wide, gathering knowledge, trading a bit here and there and

  having adventures.  

 

 My dragons: my exploration team

 (the dragons who regularly follow me in my exploits)

  Ocean (Deadly Nadder) – my first dragon and travel companion.

  I share a special bond with her, as I raised her from an egg and spent many a day 

  with only her for company. She is brave, loyal, curious and very intelligent, 

  often getting bored from inaction. Ocean is very comfortable around humans, 

  but sometimes dislikes sharing my attention with unfamiliar dragons. 

  She did, however, turn out to be surprisingly good with dragonlets. 

  She is a very steady and reliable flyer but does not much enjoy anything competitive.

 

  Viridi (Changewing) – the first addition to my exploration team.

  A trader whom I was helping out temporarily had a large and precious

  gem on his ship. I tried to convince him time and time again that he had  

  been duped and the bazaar merchant sold him a dragon egg, but he

  refused to believe me… until it hatched. I offered to take the dragonlet

  off his hands for a good supply of changewing acid once it grew up, and

  the trader was all too happy to get rid of the rather destructive and

  constantly disappearing little creature. As I was the first thing it saw

  when it hatched, the small changewing was eager to stay with me.

  Viridi was my most challenging dragon because it’s very hard to train

  something you can’t see half the time. Being a social creature, she accepted

  Ocean and me as part of her family and joined us on our many adventures.

  She is a quiet, careful, patient and observant dragon, who prefers to avoid

  human habitations and is very helpful in the exploration of the wild.

 

 

 My dragons: the gronckcicle family

 

 

 Mountain (Gronckle) – a wild dragon from berk, which I trained to help  

 me with some tasks like iron and glass production or building (gronckle lava

 makes great cement). She mostly does her own thing, but enjoys living in

 my boulder class stable. She is also surprisingly fast for her species and is

 good at racing.

 

 IceCube (Groncicle) – I met him as an adolescent dragon on Ice Storm

 Island and managed to gain his trust by feeding him and helping him  

 rebuild his nest after a bad storm. He was really helpful during my

 exploration of this freezing land, especially when the temperatures got too

 low for poor Ocean (she much prefers warm weather). He followed me

 back to Berk and stayed after meeting Mountain. He is a strong, brave

 dragon, quite territorial and protective of his family. He is also a fast  

 racer and good at battles.

 

 RockMoss (Gronckle – part groncicle? – I think this might be a new species) –

 he is Mountains and IceCubes dragonlet.

 

 

 

 The Sunnystone Island wild dragon reserve

 

  I have carved multiple stables on my island and close lying islets for wild dragons

  who are in need of a place to rest. Here I help wounded dragons, learn the

  secrets of multiple dragon species, and train dragons to live side by side with

  humans, teaching them things such as not to fire at houses or scare farm

  animals and how to spot and avoid dragon traps. Some dragons move on and

  some, to my great excitement, have chosen to stay permanently.

 

  Thistle (Whispering death) - she was probably chased off from her home.

  Despite that, she is a rather affectionate dragon.

  Sprite (Shockjaw) – he was probably one of the many new shockjaws brought

  to Berk, who didn’t find an owner – seems unafraid of people.

  Sky (Stormcutter) - she stayed on the island after being raised here by her mother.

 

 

My clan: The Sunwing Voyagers

 

We are a clan of peaceful travellers, artists, scholars and traders. Our success is determined by skill and patience. Adventures await!

 

We fly to the edges of the archipelago and far beyond, expanding our horizons and exploring new lands. We are talented, creative and resourceful and we are ready to help any new friends we meet. The Sunwing Voyagers are a peaceful clan and we prefer to settle any conflicts with diplomacy rather than violence. We love dragons and we are always ready to learn new things, using our extensive knowledge of their ways to aid people and dragons to peacefully coexist and help each other.

 

This is a special clan where the skill within the game determines the success of its members. It is for those who have never taken the easy way of buying a membership or using gems to instantly get tens of dragons, all the most expensive armour and saddles, to do easy farming and fishing etc., etc. We take time to enjoy the progress of the game. (The rule on gems is flexible)

About The Sunwing Voyagers

The Sunwing Voyagers

 

We fly to the edges of the archipelago and far beyond, expanding our horizons and exploring new lands. We are talented, creative and resourceful and we are ready to help any new friends we meet. The Sunwing Voyagers are a peaceful clan and we prefer to settle any conflicts with diplomacy rather than violence. We love dragons and we are always ready to learn new things, using our extensive knowledge of their ways to aid people and dragons to peacefully coexist and help each other.

 

This is a special clan where the skill within the game determines the success of its members. It is for those who have never taken the easy way of buying a membership or using gems to instantly get tens of dragons, all the most expensive armour and saddles, to do easy farming and fishing etc., etc. We take time to enjoy the progress of the game.

 

Info for joining:

If you wish to join please send a join request in-game with the code phrase “We fly in the sun”. This will mean you have read and agreed with our rules and requirements.

 

What will you get from this clan?

Clan leadership is new to me, so please be patient. I’ll try to organise clan competitions and activities fairly regularly (every few weeks) – I have lots of ideas, but I am open to suggestions. Events will include, but will not be limited to: art and poetry contests, treasure hunts, in-game competitions and anything else we can think of. I’ll try to create smaller fun events too, like tag and hide and seek games whenever I have time online.

 

Clan rules and requirements

1. The obvious rule is that you should not have ever bought a membership for the Viking you are joining with. You should also appreciate the idea of being patient and putting effort into the game, so not overusing purchased gems (gems achieved from added friends/completed offers/battle events are fine) – i.e. it’s understandable if you bought gems for a dragon you especially like or for an expansion, but ideally you shouldn’t purchase gems to instantly grow all your dragons to adults, instantly complete stable quests, buy hundreds of eggs and instanty hatch them, buy all your fish from the store or insta-grow farm produce, etc. You’ll just have to be honest on this one, as I can’t really check.

2. We are a peaceful clan – so please no evil Viking names (e.g. Killer, DarkOne etc.)

3. Please friend me :) – it makes communication much easier. Friend code: AQGS7K

4. The is no requirement by activity, but it would be nice if you took part in clan events – otherwise why join a clan?

5. No trophy requirement

6. No attendance of battle events required

 

If your request has been declined it means you did not adhere to one of the core rules – I’m sorry :(

1° Silver and her dragon Sky

 

^ By BoomBox ^

 

Backstory 

 

Silver was born and grew up in Berk,her family hates dragons and wanted to get rid of them.

One night the young girl war out for repel the dragon who were attacking the village,at one moment while she was distracted a white night fury had gripped her and carried away from Berk.

Silver during the trip was faint and when she resumed her senses she found herself in the middle of a group of night furies on an unknown island.

The island was of volcanic origin and everywhere was scattered ash that gave a grayish color to the ground.

The girl saw that she had no way to go home and decided to live on the island she called:"The Island of the Night".

The years passed and Silver learned to know the dragons that lived on the island,but there was a very special dragon,it was the night fury that had kidnapped her...

The beautiful exemplar was the alpha that reigned on the island and seemed to want Silver to become her friend or even her knight.

And so it was,the young girl caught a strong bond of friendship with the dragon she called Sky.

Silver whit the materials on the island built a saddle and began to fly with her new friend.

Day after day their bond grew stronger and the girl decided to try to get back to Berk on the back of her dragon and convince the vikings that the dragons aren't evil as they think.

Her plan worked and Silver agree to stay at Berk with her beloved companion Sky.

More info

Snootle

 

Appearance: A green dragon with a canine-shaped snout, wolf-like ears and two pairs of short, upward curling brown horns below the ear, lining the jaw. A row of tough scales line the top of his snout, which ends in a grey dog-like nose. On his neck and across the top of his chest is a thick fur mane that puffs up whenever he gets angry, frustrated, startled or defensive. His eyes are orange with a round pupil.

Red-orange scales line his belly and go halfway down the tail which is plain, part from the trailing of a row of spines at the top. Along his back is a row of bone-white spikes. His wings are fairly plain, with a large bony hook on the hand.

Personality

  • All-bark-no-bite type attitude
  • Acts like he’s ready and able to fight anyone at any moment but will fall over if you look at him angrily
  • Makes up a lot of stories that make him look tough
  • Kind of emotionally unstable
  • Older brother to Beetroot- sometimes is mean, but will go through h.ell and back for him
  • Easily distracted
  • Loves copper and anything copper coloured
  • High-class taste in music and fashion

 

Beetroot

 

Appearance: A dull lavender ampitheare with red and yellow feathered wings, a deep blue tail tip and blank, white round eyes. A large, curled horn adorns his nose, and the mouth is jagged. His body is completely covered in feathers that are incredibly fluffy and soft- he’s like a duckling with no legs. The feathers do not flare out until the nape of his neck, and increase in density on the tail.

Personality

  • Looks and acts super cute and innocent
  • Is actually prepared to kill a man/dragon if given a reason to
  • Thankfully does not have the physical capacity to do so
  • Holds a grudge until death itself dies
  • Optimistic and playful
  • Makes many different kinds of noises, few of them explainable by science
  • Will eat anything, even if it is not meant to be eaten
  • Dislikes numbers- has been known to attempt to destroy anything with maths on it

Raider the pygmy Night Fury from Ecliptic

After all these years, all of his labour, and for what!? Some dirt-faced, two-clawed Triple Stryke hatchling to have a censored at his hoard when his back was turned. Scorpio had been a thorn in Raider’s side for weeks now, but this had gone too far- his vibrant blue and gold carapace would be a fine addition to his collection. Well, maybe he didn’t need to go that far for a youngster.

 

 

Emperor the baby Skyworm from Chameishida

The tiny splitjawed dragon rolled down the small incline. Behind him was a smoking wreck of an ancient building now truely destroyed beyond recognition, stone bricks still glowly slightly from an intense heat. He gave a gummed smile to the scene of destruction, clearly oblivious to the meaning of it. His home had been wiped off the island and he couldn't be more content with things.

How the Voyagers spend their summer

Hello fellow voyagers!

 

We have finally reached the 10 member mark and this means... (dramatic music) 

The first clan competition!

 

A slight digression: I will leave in a week for a long journey to the Southern seas, and will only be able to reach you by terror mail (maybe - if it won't be too far for the terrible terrors) (i.e.. I will likely not have internet access for the whole of this month). This means, I wish you a wonderful final month of summer (and the competition will last all of August).

 

The competition will be a screenshot and caption contest with the theme "How do dragons spend their summer"

You will have to create a short comic out of screenshots (1-4 screenshots) with a funny caption(/s). The funniest comic wins!

 

I will create a special thread in the "Screenshots" section of the forum with the title "How the Voyagers spend their summer". Here you will find the rules, deadlines and a place to submit your entries.

 

The prize will be a "nature painter" trophy with your name on it (and possibly something else - we can have a prize discussion later).

 

Good luck!
