hello school of dragons players and admins


i am a veteran player of 3+ years and an avid httyd fan since the first film. i signed up for this game when it was in its early stages of development

my account has always had a history of being very buggy. first it was the lab mini game that was stuck on an endless loading screen, then it was my dragon babies being unable to gain exp and then it were certain quests that i could not complete even though i had completed the required task. in fact, i think the only reason i have ever used this forum account is to report bugs

anyway i recently got a new pc and decided to give this game a try again for old time's sake. i installed it from this website, entered my old account and tried to get into the game.

i spawn always in the training grounds and from here my screen is completely empty. no interface, no login reward. i can see my avatar and dragon beside me and i can see the other players in the server. i cannot move my viking either. i am essentially stuck waiting for everything to (hopefully)

the interface always stays empty and although my mouse still has the loading gears, nothing will happen. this eventually disappears too. then, my game freezes.

at first everything gets laggy and the players around me move slowly, disappear, or just stop moving altogether. my viking still cannot move and my dragon freezes and then so does the whole game.

this crashes my pc everytime. i cannot shut the game down, i cannot force it to shut down, it's completely unresponsive and instead im forced to just reload my pc and try again.

this is thoroughly annoying as it's definitely doing some damage to my pc.

i have tried trying again, going into the game from a different viking or even waiting 10 minutes at the loading screen to give the game a chance to properly load everything in. nothing is working and i'm starting to get really frustrated.

please help me out.

thank you.

*Sighs* Melodie...!!!

Hm.... This sounds like a real problem... I'm guessing your PC isnt an old one? Have you tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it? If so its probably better to contact one of admins directly instead of a topic. I hear they don't normally look at these all that often. Good luck trying to get into the game, I'm having a bit of trouble myself. I'm trying to download the update, i have one more left but when it gets to 38 percent of the final one it says i can't connect to the sever and it restarts. I wish you good luck in trying to get back in the game <3

Rani Jade Riviera is the Younger sister of both Dager and Heather. However, not many people know she exists. For you see, her entire life, she has been kept in secret. After word of her fathers passing reached Dager, as he was the eldest it was his duty to look over the island. Dager didn't want anything bad happening to his younger sister, so he kept her in secret still. He however shipped Heather off. Rani does not understand why he decided to keep her but she did. When she turned 11 she wanted to see the island she had only heard stories about from her parents and older sibling. She snuck out from the home while Dager was busy and was able to see the world around her. However, that same day Hiccup and the dragon riders came to attack. The world she was still trying to understand disappeared into a cloud of dust and ash right before her eyes. She tried making a run for her own home, however just as she was about to reach the door her home went up in a cloud of smoke from Toothless. Fearing for her life, she ran ino the forest close by, but was soon captured by the twins. Hiccup took one look at her, and decided it would be best to bring her back with them. With the only items on her were her double axe and her diary, she was forced into a new world. To stop Hiccup and the others finding out who she was, she took the name Rani Jade Riviera. For a while Hiccup didn't know what to do with her, however one afternoon while Rani was training Hiccup caught her. Hiccup then requested that Rani help the dragon riders rescue a few death songs from Melody Island. After their adventure was over, with the Dragon Hunters escaping with both deathsongs; Rani Discovered a Death song egg. Hiccup requested that Rani take care of the soon to be born Dragon, in which she did. When Rani was 16, Hiccup asked her to become a School of Dragons student and learn side by side with her Dragon, Melodie. Rani has gone on many adventures with both Hiccup and other members of the school, has grown closer to Melo hideand made lots of other connections with other dragons. She has reunited with Heather and Dagar, however still takes the name Rani Riviera.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.
