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. 

No automatic alt text available.

 

  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, f) – 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, f) – 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.

 

  Moonshine (Razorwhip, f) - Moonshine was picked up by Ocean, probably

  from some shipwreck, as she was completely covered in seaweed. She was 

  still very tiny and Ocean brought her up, becoming a sort of mother figure to her.

  Moonshine is a very happy and energetic dragon: she is in constant movement

  and always wants to play. She lacks any concept of seriousness or caution, so it

  can be quite difficult to have her around on journies, but definitely entertaining.

  At first Ocean was the only one who could get Moonshine under control,

  but after a lot of work, she started listening to me too (most of the time).

 

  Panthera (Death Song, f) - I found Panthera as an adolescent dragon, wary and

  underfed, on the outskirts of Melody Island. After some investigation, I found that 

  this was because her voice was a few tones lower that usual: the other Death Songs 

  drove her away, attacking her at any chance they got, and she could not hunt as her

  song lacked the usual attractive power, forcing her to feed on any fish she was 

  able to catch in the ocean - something Deathsongs just aren't good at. This, however,

  gave me an opportunity to train this magnifiscent dragon, since she had not aquired

  the natural viciousness towards other dragons. Panthera responded very well

  to being fed chicken and boar and had learned to get along with Ocean, Viridi and

  Moonshine (though she largely just ignores them). She turned out to be very lazy,

  always prefering to lay in the sun or in front of the campfire and has been very

  helpful in building and guarding camp during my expeditions. She has a creative

  streak and appears to enjoy singing along with me and seeing her amber made

  into various tools and trinkets.

  

 A list of other dragons I know can be found here.

 

 

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.

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!

The Back to School/Uni get-together

Hello!

After what I hope was a great summer for everyone, school & university are back.

To start off a good academic year, I think we should have our first official in-game clan get-together!

 

Now I know our members are expert dragon flyers, but how good are you at adventuring without your dragon? To test this I want to announce a mountain climbing contest!

 

               

 

You have to start at the camp and on the signal, try to be the first to reach the peak over the waterfall.

 

               

 

The winner is the first viking to set foot on the peak platform (there will be a ref there - probably me - who will be recording the event). Here is the catch - it is forbidden at any point from the start of the race to mount your dragon (anyone on a dragon after the race starts is automatically disqualified). May the swiftest climber win! (yes, it is allowed to practice)

 

After the race, we will head back to our clan hideout for our first official clan meeting - the goal of which is to make a picture off all clan members who can attend. Maybe I can make the first provisional clan banner from it :) You can wear whatever best represents your OC, but please wear a shield with our clan emblem.

 

This will be followed by a dance party (I got the idea from WutendBonfire - so I hope you can give me some tips on what to do? :D - it sounds very fun). For the occasion, I propose for members to find and suggest music from YouTube that people can listen to during the party (keep it PG-13 & no swearing pls) - best of all if it's happy and uplifting and goes with the dragon/voyager theme. (All suggestions to be posted on the clan letters). Also, the dance party is for everyone, not only for members: so if you want to bring any friends, it's greatly encouraged! (The exact time when the dance will start - real-time, with reminders - will be posted on clan letters)

 

I hope to see all of you at the get-together!

Change of plans

Hello fellow Voyagers! 

 

As it turned out to be problematic to get everyone in one place at one time in this busy season, the get-together plans have to be put on hold for an undetermined amount of time.

 

Instead, lets make the mountain climbing event more convenient:

 

Show your skills by making a screenshot of your viking standing heroically at the top of any mountain in the archipelago: there is only one condition - you should have scaled the mountain on your own from the very bottom, without the help of your dragon.

 

Scaling the cliffs on Armourwing Island and Dark Deep.

 

If we get enough pics, I'll try to make a mini banner of them (this might take time though, lots of work)

Other than that, a big in-game event is in planning for October :)

 

P.S. You can post the screenshots on this thread, but please don't reply directly to this post

Hello!

 

I would like to present all of our members with a ticking thing of my own making (HTTYD book series reference).

It includes a compass, watch, thermometer, chronometer and other things I'm not even sure about myself.

Boooo!

Hello fellow voyagers!

 

 

I hope you are feeling adventurous, because what is a better way of celebrating Dreadfall than going on a treasure hunt?

 

While cleaning out my storehouse, I have found an old pad-locked box and a riddle to go with it. I'm hoping you can help me decifre these clues and find the code. 

Here is the riddle, I will add the clues in portions: 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

At the School, Toothless is guarding a tree.

How many pumpkins are there? Hint: not three.

 

Up a wild log and into a cave,

Count the barrels if you are brave.

 

Look out in the cave in the dark.

How many fires crackle and spark?

 

Where trainers fish on the beach by the sea,

How many fish are leaping free? 

 

You will need runes and you will need lots,

In the great cavern, count lava pots

 

Hobble up to the cliff that looks like a claw.

How many smaller claws can you see below? 

 

Stand and look over the open sea,

How many narwhal pods can you see? 

 

Sail among the pillars of ice and rock,

There are how many wooden docks? 

 

Down at Berk the fires are green.

How many can be seen? 

 

You have to go to the Edge really soon

And count all of Ruffnuts’ and Tuffnuts’ balloons. 

 

When pirates are close, you have to go under water.

How many colors of fern can you spot… er. 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Good luck!

 

Important!

If you want to enter the treasure hunt, please send me a private message stating which one of your dragons you are taking with you. The prize will be a spooky signature decoration with your dragon in it. Please only send me the answers through private messages - or it won't be any fun for others.

 

Please do not reply to this post, as I need to be able to edit it!

Thanks SOO much to Rebell for making my Profile Picture dragon edit!!!

 

Hello! I am jenniemkitty! I'm always open to chat, but may not get back to you super quickly. I am a bit of a goofball sometimes...so you have been warned. =-)

(warning:this siggy is long. Prepare yourselves.)

(another warning: bit of an art hoarder E)

 

 

My Q&A 

(click the words)

 

 

A little about me:

 

I am crazy about...

Everything Httyd of Course! - Httyd, Httyd 2, Rtte, SoD, and looking forawrd to HTTYD3! (I also play Rise of Berk) I would like to add that the Fanfiction 'A Matter of Perspective' by Squiid is really good you should read it :) (It's about Viggo's backstroy)

Harry Potter (i am completly nuts about this and have always been, and if you are too, I always love to talk to other Potterheads! =-) More about Harry potter stuff down lower, about half of the way down & at the bottom in the funny's)

Rangers Apprentice (not many people have heard about this book seiries, but it is Awesome! )

 

 

Pet Peves:

Judging other people

swearing

insulting (on purpose, sometimes people do it on accident, but as long as they apoligize they should be forgiven.)

Bugging

I may get mad if you do these. 

 

 

I'm a Mormon!

- questions and chatting are welcome

- Antagonizing me is not

- one important thing you should know is that there are many untrue rumors about Mormons on the internet.

***************************************************************************************************************

 

Im a part of...

 

Sunwing Voagers!

Thunderclan warriors!

 

My Viking OC

 

Name: Geveda

Apearence: scroll down a little and you'll see the artwork!

 Personality in a nutshell:

- friendly

- compasionate

-loyal, but it takes time for her to become loyal to others/trust others

- weird,but in a good way

- (sometimes strange) sense of humor

- avoids harm to others when possible

-  can be somewhat socially akward

- tends to talk to much 

Long version:

Personality: freindly, but socialy akward, loyal, compasionet, weird but in a good way, its part of her charm, with a sense of humor that sometimes leaves her standing akwardly when no one gets it. She is a very loyal person, and will not switch to the opsoing team, give away information, or help them if she is on the side she knows is good. However, while she is very loyal, it takes some time to for her to trust someone, and until then is figuring out if they are a good person to trust. There are reasons, however, that will get  her to break the rules, for example, going off to free trapped and caged dragons from dragon hunters despite being told not too (thats how she met CloudStream). She hates any kind of serious harm to people, which is why her arrows (more about them later on in siggy) only freeze the targets, not hurt. She also will try to get people to aviod injuring others when possible.

^ This awesome drawing was done by Fireflash! Thank you sooo much!

=-)

 

^ By Alina Wildfire! Thank youuuuuu!

 

 

^ by Katarile! Thank you! Your art is awesome! =)

Main Weapon

A large bow with flightmare frost balls tipped on the end of her arrows. The balls are flightmare frost coated in some hard substance (differs depending on the purpose). When they hit something, they burst open and freeze whatever it is touching

Thanks SOOOO much to Rebell for making this! (also my profile pic)

An incredbile animation of CloudStream by TosiLohi! (-squeels- E-)

 

About CloudStream: She is protective, loyal, and compasionate. She thinks of others before herself. She never shoots to kill, only injure if needed to protect. Cloudstream rescued her rider, Geveda, when she was attemting to free dragons out of cages in a dragon hunter camp. She was rather closed up at first, but warmed up to Geveda after Geveda proved to her she was trustwothy, and they formed a close bond. She loves speed and feeling the wind in her face, and often does stunts with her rider (however she pushes the limits of how daring they are, as Geveda is more catious than CloudStream)She, liker her rider, is very loyal. Her main and first loyalty lies with Geveda. It takes time and good actions for her to trust others. She is very determind and has a strong willpower.

Weaknesses: Sometimes she doesnt listen and does something anyway if she is determind to do it, which gets them in trouble sometimes. She does not give up easily, which can be bad if there is a need to stop.

End of the Year announcements!

Hello!

I am back and at the start of a New Year, I have a few announcements to make. *Triumphant music*

 

1. I want to congratulate our very first elder, xxXxStarkxXxx (XxSilver.NightxX).

She has participated in (and won!) most contests this year, proudly displays our clan emblem in her signature and collaborated in a banner design. A round of applause please!

Silver, you can adress a few words to your clan members if you like (just pls don't reply directly to this post).

 

2. I also want to thank another person, Wutend Bonfire, for being enthusiastic about the clan and designing some great banners. She also definitely has point towards becoming an elder. Thank you and congratulations! 

 

3. This year two banners have been designed by our clan members, one of which, I'm ashamed to say, I forgot to show.

https://i.imgur.com/zs6gr3G.png

This one was drawn by Wutend Bonfire

(If you've noticed, yes, the emblem is different from the official clan emblem, but members are free to interpret the imagery of the clan for themselves, as long as the gold and cream colors are conserved and it fits our "freedom, goodwill, peacefullness" attitude.)

New feature

Hello Fellow Voyagers!

 

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I have decided to make Sunwing Voyager collectibles.

 

Now, with every big contest or event, a collectible will be released for anyone who participated to feature in their signature.

 

To display collectibles (and any trophies you might get!), I have designed a signature cabinet (you can use this one, or make your own if you like):

simply copy and paste these parts into your sig and size them down to width 600, then copy and paste the collectibles (size down to 200x200) between the layers (you can see an example in my sig). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first collectible can be found on the Sunwing Winter Wonderland page, and everyone in the clan can have one.

 

Pls don't reply directly to this post.

Clash of Clans 2018

Hello!

As you might (or might not) know, the Clash of Clans is starting on the 5th of March.

I have never before taken part in it, but apparently the winners will get cool prizes.

It proceeds in rounds. Directly quoting the initial "Clash of Clans" description (this is very old, dates for 2018 will vary):

 

~~~~~

Week 1 (3/3 – 3/10) – POOL PLAY

This is where ALL the Clans in School of Dragons will need to give it their all because we will only choose the Top 8 Clans dependent on the highest Trophy Count to move onto the quarter finals.

 

Week 2 (3/10 – 3/17) – QUARTER FINALS

The top 8 Clans will be paired with each other to battle for the opportunity to move onto the next round of competition. The winning Clan with the highest Trophy count out of the two will move onto the semi finals.

 

Week 3 (3/17 – 3/24) – SEMI FINALS

The top 4 Clans will be paired with each other. The winning Clan with the highest Trophy count of the two will move onto the finals.

 

Week 4 (3/24 – 3/31) – FINALS

This is the last round of the Tournament. The championship game. It’s essentially Odin versus Thor so you definitely don’t want to miss out on this sky-high battle between the Top 2 Clans in SoD!"

~~~~~

 

To win you have to earn the most trophies as a clan. As far as I understand, even small clans have a chance:

 

~~~~~

"To win each round and ultimately, the Clash of the Clans Tournament is simple – earn more Trophies than your opponent! Note that we take the number of Clan members and the number of Trophies you earn in each round into consideration. Therefore, even if a few Dragon Trainers in a specific Clan have been more active than others, it does not mean they can outweigh the average of their entire Clan."

~~~~~

Honestly, I don't know if we have a chance or not and I am going to be buisy the next week, but I am going to try my best to earn trophies and I hope you will too.

 

 

You will also notice two clan members missing - don't worry I'm not chasing anyone out of the clan, I'm just temporarily booting an account of my friend (who I know is not going to be active anytime soon) and my second account - I'm just not sure if me participating from multiple accounts is cheating or not and I don't want them bringing down the average. 

Pls don't reply directly.

Our new clan Discord channel.

I went ahead and created a discord channel specifically for our clan as an experiment. 

 

The link to it is here.

 

Rules: same as clan (so swearing, keep it PG, no evil names, be nice, don't reveal personal info - all the usual)

Discord will give you an option to download it as an app - don't do it (I haven't tried it and I don't know what will happen), just follow the option "Open Discord". My original post about this is on the clan letters - which, along with the journal, will still be functioning.

I can not answer for the whole Discord community, nor can I guarantee that you won't find something you don't want to find there, so I strongly encourage newcomers to keep to the channel I created.

The journal will still be the main announcement page, but I will notify on Discord when I post something here.

 

If the discord thing starts causing any trouble, the channel might be closed without warning - so be Warned!

 

Also you will be asked to verify your identity as a member of this clan - I will send you a code word through PM on this forum and you will have to text it in discord.

 

I really hope this works out well :D

Clan reviving

Hello fellow Voyagers.

 

I have been very inactive the past few moths due to studies (my apologies), but now I am back and I want to revive this clan. However, before I start working on it, I have an issue I want to bring before current clan members.

 

I have been thinking for quite a while, and I am considering removing the no membership/ no gems rule. 

 

My initial reasoning for instating it has been the following:

Memberships and gems make gameplay too easy, people immediately get all the dragons, max out on all levels/achievements, complete all the expantions and become bored by the game, soon leaving. Besides, having 50+ dragons, in my opinion, undervalued the idea of the a movies about having a special rider-dragon bond. I felt like putting in more effort and patientce makes the game more interesting and realistic and wanted a clan of like-minded people.

 

However now I have found three reasons against this rule:

1. I have seen people who have / had memberships and have been playing for years. They are still interested and invested in the game and, despite having loads of dragons, have backstories / connections with them.

2. Even though I wouldn't get membership for myself because I usually don't spend money in online games, I really like the SoD game and think that the creators are doing a pretty good job (even in the light of the current issues brought by the update - *cough* constant server timeouts *cough**cough*). I think that they deserve to make some profit. I don't flatter myself that someone would avoid buying a membership to be in my clan, but I still don't want to descourage anyone who has carefully thought about it and wants to get one.

3. I want this to be an active clan with active events and I feel like we really need more people for that.

 

My vision for the future of this clan is a non-competitive, gameplay/events based/ maybe even RP clan. I still plan to emphasize the peaceful/friendly/non-conflict nature of the clan.

 

So I would really like to hear your opinions on whether to waive the non-members rule before advertising a new round of member recruitement.

Also I am curious about who is still paying attention to the clan, so even if you don't have an opinion on the rule, please make yourself heard (inactive members might get expelled if the recruitment get very lively). 

 

Feel free to respond on this thread, but pls don't reply directly to this post.

Clan revival

I personally think you should go ahead and allow members if you'd like. I don't know if I'd become a member myself, although I have considered it, but I don't think that should always be a restriction.

 

As for my activity in this clan, I really haven't been on lately. I love the game and this clan and being "Eratagh" and it's always been the perfect escape to just log on and fly around a bit. However, I just graduated high school and I'm going away for the summer. I'll still have internet and now that I'm getting a laptop I'll have better access to the game and this forum but I don't know how much time I can dedicate to playing. When I get back in early October I'll have more time and I don't plan on starting classes until January or maybe even Spring. I'd love to keep being a part of this community but in the near future it isn't that realistic. So I apologize in advance and I'll try to keep in touch via Discord (if the Discord is still a thing we're using lol).

Welcome to My (incredibly boring) Signature

 

First, some basic stuff about irl me.

Name: Jason (Jace)

Age: 19

Stuff I like: dragons, books, cats, percussion, cold

Stuff I don't like: heat, food, spiders, nature

 

Here's some more in-depth stuff (if you care).

I'm a percussionist. I prefer mallets but I dabble in snare and occasionally set.

I read. A lot. Mostly fantasy and sci-fi but I'll read just about anything.

I also listen to a lot of music. Just about anything.

I write sometimes. I'm not very good at it and I'm never proud enough to share my work but it can be kinda enjoyable.

I've done RP before. I don't have a lot of experience, though.

If I come across as impatient or rude or anything of the sort, I apologize. I'm not good at the whole "people" thing.

I have an incredibly twisted sense of humor so anything goes with me as long as it's actually a joke and it isn't directed at one specific individual. I don't like bullies.

 

Enough about "me" me, time for "HtTYD" me.

In-game name: Eratgh

Friend code: PM me

Main dragon: Frightfoot (titan Flightmare)

 

 

Eratagh and Frightfoot

Backstory:

A young viking named Eratagh arrived at Berk just around Dreadfall. Ever since he was a little boy, he’d always loved dragons. Unfortunately for him, his village didn’t. His people were dragon trappers, and when they weren’t selling their “prizes” to the highest bidder, they were sacrificing the dragons to the wicked God they worshipped. Eratagh refused to hurt any dragons and he swiftly became the outcast. He wanted nothing more than to leave that awful place behind but he didn’t know how, or where he’d go. Then, one day, Eratagh was down by the docks when a trader mentioned an island of dragon riders and presented a map. The island was called “Berk” and it wasn’t too far away; he could make the trip in less than a week. After the trader had put the map down again he crept over and stole it. He immediately packed his things and left in a small boat, vowing to never return.

Upon his arrival he began to meet the Chief, Hiccup, and his dragon but their greetings were cut short by the sound of warning horns. A viking from Eratagh’s island had seen him steal the map and now three ships filled to the brim with dragon trappers were attacking. Hiccup asked for Eratagh’s help to fend them off and after their victory, the chief pointed out a caged dragon on the beach. It was a Flightmare. Eratagh freed the creature and bonded with him, naming him Frightfoot.

 

About Eratagh:

Eratagh is a cheerful rider that loves to crack jokes. He isn't happy-go-lucky but he is an optimist, and you rarely see him down. Era, like everyone else, has some problems but he tries to just ignore those feelings and make the best out of what he has. He's a pretty decent warrior, although he prefers to talk things out, and he's very handy in a pinch.

 

About Frightfoot:

Fright is incredibly sarcastic and snarky and Eratagh’s really the only person that can get him to behave. Despite his playful nature, he is loyal to a fault, and would do anything for his rider. His favorite pastime is gliding peacefully over the ocean with Eratagh on his back. 

 

Other dragons:

Vinewing (adult Deadly Nadder)

Snowflake (teen Goncicle)

Firefly (teen Monstrous Nightmare)

Yeah, it's ok. I'm going to try and come up with activities that don't consume a lot of time. I'm also not sure how often I'm going to be online - there is always some sort of real life thing that interferes just when I think that "Now I have a lot of time to play" XD.
