Hello fellow Sunwing Voyagers!

This is the official activities page for the 2017/2018 winter break.

(I thought it would be better than having a separate one for every contest/event.)

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.

Festive Farms

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

Our first event will be a farm decoration competition.

 

Make your farm as festive as possible for the holiday season! Snoggletog items are not a requirement, but a wintery theme will definitely add extra points.

 

The contest will be judged by me (so, sorry, it will be subjective). You don't have to write anything or have a forum account to enter, all you have to do is decorate your farm by the 25th of December - I will visit the farms of every clan member personally on that day and choose the winner.

 

(Please add me to your friends list - AQGS7K if you had not done so already, or I won't be able to get to your farm)

 

The best looking farm will be featured in the journal. Good luck!

 

Please don't reply directly to this post.

Not really a contest, but I thought it would be fun to share any especially cool screenshots taken throughout the year.

 

It can be any epic or amusing pics you've taken but had not had the occasion to post, screenshots you particularly like (even if you've posted them somewhere before), memorable moments (like getting a new dragon or expansion pack), etc. Feel free to use captions, filters and light editing!

 

All screenshots should be from 2017. Just post them on this thread with the subject "Memories" and I will choose some for a special year-summary clan banner.

 

Pls don't reply directly to this post.

CloudStream welcomes you to my siggy!

She protects the art here, so dont try and take anything! :) 

 

 

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...

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.

Welcome to My (incredibly boring) Signature

 

First, some basic stuff about irl me.

Name: Jason (Jace)

Age: 19

Gender: I am of the male species

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 an ex-percussionist. I prefer mallets but I dabbled 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.

I'm a high school graduate and I plan on starting class at a community college in January.

If I was straight, my cat would be my wife.

 

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

My Viking OC: Eratagh

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)

Snoggletog card contest

Hello!

 

I would like to announce a contest for the best Snoggletog greeting card - they can be hand- or computer-drawn or edits of screenshots (for example, of your winter dragon :) - I'm not sure that we have enough participants for a dragon customization contest too, so your customized dragons can be featured on a card). 

 

Rules are the obvious - no plagiarizing (stealing art), nothing inappropriate, etc.

 

The winner will be decided by vote and will get a signature decoration (don't worry, it will be better than the one in my signature, as I barely spent any time on it) and their card featured on "The Journal" as the official Sunwings 2018 Snoggletog greeting.

 

To participate, post your cards as a reply to my next post with the subject "Card" (very imaginative, I know) by the 5th of January. You can make multiple submissions. 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing your festive cards :)

 

Pls don't reply directly to this post.

The weird:

 

The day my farm was invaded by ghost sheep

 

Whisps over the sea? Is this where the witch from Brave moved to?

 

The Dragon Eye is magic!

 

The weather this winter was so cold one day - a baby nadder froze solid (don't worry he thawed out ok later)

 

Hullo!

 

And my favorite:

Farm decor contest winner!

I would like to congratulate our winner: the farm of Stark by XxSilver.NightxX. The farm is not only well decorated,

but also has a festive Snoggletog corner.

 

I also couldn't help mentioning the runner up: the farm of Pallus of Rome by Wutend Bonfire.

I really like the idea of the planting plot division.

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.

 

I strongly encourage you to post your best "memories" screenshots - I can't really make a clan banner with only my own.

Also take part in the card contest - I'll set up voting once I'm back :)

 

Happy New Year in advance :D !
