Welcome to

 

Earthguard

 

Recruitment

 

Page

 

 

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

 

All over the School of Dragons and Berk are posted recruitment flyers for a clan called Earthguard, with a description of the clan and an image of its crest, two dragons protecting a sapling, scrawled onto faded parchment, nailed to posts and boards throughout. The parchment gently wafts in the breeze with an inviting crinkling sound that seems to say, 'Go on! Take one!'

 

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

Hi there! Earthguard is currently opening its doors to Vikings who love nature and dragons just as much as we do! We are mostly looking for roleplayers currently, but anyone who shares an interest in animals, dragons, and nature are welcome no matter your playstyle. Earthguard is a friendly, laid back, social clan made up of like minded individuals with no trophy or level requirement, just a group of friendly Vikings who all wish to do our part to protect Earth and all its creatures. As a clan, we strive to preserve nature and natural habitats, seeking ways to live in harmony with our fellow dragons, protecting them and our own, while being kind to all. We aren't largely competitive as a whole, but there are still those who do enjoy a bit of competition from time to time and helping out is appreciated, but not obligatory. Mostly we just enjoy playing the game, flying on our dragons, chatting, and roleplay!

 

We currently have Season 2 of Earthguard's clan roleplay running and active, with a quick summary of the events that happened in Season 1, as well as a Clan Hangout page and Art Trade right here in the forums, and a Discord Channel. If you feel like you'd be a good fit for Earthguard, or would love to check out our roleplay and join in, feel free to visit our Earthguard: Clan Information and Announcements page for more info and an application.

Michael, Albatross and Scuttles

(I will start it now and with homework I might be done by Monday night (I have Monday off)

 

 

 

 

Viking:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::..

 

Name: Michael

 

Nicknames/Title: WIP

 

Gender: Male

 

Age: 19

 

Residence: Berk

 

PersonalityMichael is always thinking logically and doesn’t understand jokes. He is smart enough to understand them but always takes things literally. For example “Mercy then replied “Hey look Michael’s back!” Not understanding Michael asked “What! What’s on my back?”. Michael prefers to be alone and hates being the center of attention. He is always serious and doesn’t understand why Vikings socialize. Michael isn’t quick to trust people but once you gain his trust he will risk his life to save them. He is very intelligent and thinks outside the box. Not many people want to be his friend because he is so odd. Even though he likes to be alone that doesn’t mean he doesn’t feel sad about it. In fact often he is often depressed that he doesn’t have any friends. Michael is brave though his main weakness is that he has low self esteem. All Michael really needs is a friend he can trust. Michael loves to learn new things and to explore new places. He is more interested in dragons than spending time with Vikings. Michael hates to make speeches and presentations. He loves to teach others and dreams of teaching young Vikings the history of Berk. He is a know it all and often is bullied because of that. Michael keeps a journal of all the dragons he knows about and their stats and it is his most prized possession.

 

HistoryMichael doesn’t remember his past, all he knows is one day he awoke on the shore and found some Vikings who took him in. Though he often has nightmares of his past life hinting that it was a dangerous and horrible past.

 

Likesdragons, heights, cold, flying, swimming, exploring, learning, teaching, being near people he trusts 

 

Dislikes:  Making speeches, being the center of attention, crazy people, huge dragons, chains, blood, people or dragons hurt

 

Do you want to reserve a color for your Viking? If Yes, what color? How about Dark Cyan

 

Dragon:.

 

Name: Albatross

 

Gender: Male

 

Species: Shockjaw

 

Age: Broadwing

 

Residence: Berk

 

PersonalityAlbatross is aggressive to anyone he doesn’t trust. Also he loves competition and hates to lose.  Hates taking orders from other dragons or Vikings. Albatross is easily annoyed and super protective. In fact if anyone lays a finger (or Talon) on someone he loves, Albatross will attack to kill. His past was rough and hates most humans. Being easily aggravated many people call him a monster though he is only doing what he was taught. He doesn’t understand how Dragons An day Vikings live in peace

 

HistoryThe day Albatross hatched he was born into captivity. His parents had been killed by hunters and he was a runt and very weak since he had no one to teach him how to fight. He was immediately sent to work in the Arena and was bullied by the bigger dragons. In the arena he was forced to battle against Vikings to train them. After only a few days Albatross learned he had to fend for himself and only worry about himself. As he grew older he became stronger and soon everyone feared him (other dragons in the arena I mean) On night he finally broke free and escaped. As he flew out many dragons roared for him to free them too but he didn’t for Albatross only cared for himself. Knowing the hunters were capturing and killing many dragons a day he set out to seek his revenge by attacking all the other villages not stopping until every Dragon feared him. Though one day when attacking Berk he was injured by their weapons and for years was stranded. Then one day a group of Vikings stumbled apron him and... (will be descided in the RP)

 

Likes: WIP

 

Dislikes: WIP

 

Pet:. (if any)

 

Name: Scuttles

 

Gender: Male

 

Species: Terrible Terror 

 

Age: Teen

 

Residence: Berk

 

Personality: Scuttles is very playful and has a ton of energy. Even with that said, Scuttles still can be calm when needed. He loves to explore new places and meet new dragons. He isn’t very found of people, except for Michael who this little dragon thinks of as his brother. Him and Michael share a close bond even though both of them lost their memories and don’t know why. Scuttles doesn’t have nightmares of his past like his “brother” but still knows his past was awful. He is easily scared but feels safe around larger dragons and Michael. Even though We is easily scared doesn’t mean he will back down on a fight, instead Scuttles loves to fight. Now what Scuttles calls Fighting is more like playing violently or in other words horse playing. He acts like an energetic wolf cub and is loyal like one too. Scuttles will protect those he cares for (even though he might not be able to help that much) even is it means risking his life.

 

HistoryScuttles doesn't remember his past, all he knows is one day he awoke on the shore with a human. Even though neither can remember anything they still feel a deep connection with each other.

I have a quick question, On Albatross I haven’t figured out all the details yet. I was wondering if the form has to be completely done before I can join? Also I just finished Michael’s section (I need to upload it to the forum)

In response to your question,

In response to your question, while I'd encourage you to have some detail in each of the areas it's not required, per se. Part of the fun or role playing is discovering new things about your character and seeing them grow throughout your adventures.

 

You might know, for example, that Albatross is incredibly loyal to Michael because of an experience they shared togoether, but you might not know what Albatross' likes and dislikes are at this time- and that's ok. Feel free to upload what you have and we can go from there.

Hi piggyxl! Thanks for your

Hi piggyxl! Thanks for your interest in our rp!

 

For your dragons' ages, you can either just give it in human years, like 5 or 10 years old. Or you can generalize, like saying they are a hatchling, tiny tooth, shortwing, broadwing, adult, etc. I think it's generally established that dragons mature faster than humans, but then age much slower after that. For instance, a 3 year old dragon could be considered an adult, and a 10 year old dragon in human years could be considered 20 in dragon years. I think there is some wiggle room here, though, as different species may age at different rates.

 

Before you join the rp, I have a few questions about your characters. In Albatross' history, you wrote that he was born into the dragon army. Which dragon army are you referring to here? For our rp, the current timeline is taking place during the RTTE seasons of the show.

No problem! Glad to be of help. ^^

 

Hm... that could be an issue as the dragon hunters didn't have a dragon flyer army back then. Might I suggest a few tweaks to Albatross' backstory? You can still keep him as being a captive, for sure, but perhaps instead of being hatched by the dragon hunters, he was caught by them and they kept him captive with other dragons to train against? Kind of the way Berkians did back in the first movie before they befriended dragons. I'm sure plenty of other Vikings in the Archipelago did the same thing or similar, where they'd hunt and capture some dragons, either selling them off to others or keeping captive to fight and train against, and even forced to fight other dragons. And instead of being left for dead after a raid on a village, perhaps he could have broken free and escaped somehow? If you still want him hatched into captivity, you can even still say he was, that the dragon hunters killed his parents and took his egg.

 

Another thing you can do is make Albatross much much younger so that his entire backstory takes place during the events of the RTTE seasons that have the dragon hunters with their flyer army, and he could've gotten knocked free of his rider during a fight with Hiccup and gang. (This would make Albatross 1, maybe 2 years old at best.)

 

Personally, I like the first one better. My character has a woolly howl with a similar backstory to that and I think it would be interesting if the two of them had history.

 

Hope this helps!

Excellent! Your form looks good. Go ahead and post your character sheet in the roleplay thread. In the RP, we are currently working towards establishing an Earthguard base and dragon sanctuary. A thought we had for introducing your character was that we could find him on the flight over to the island. Did you have a preference for which shore he washed up on?

Character/Viking Name: Rachel

 

Age: 19

 

Gender: Female

 

Appearence: Rachel is on the scrawney side with dark-coloured freckles scattered across her nose, cheeks and forehead. Her muscles are not pronounced but they are visible, especially without her jacket, gained after hours of lifting heavy objects and fighting. Dark brown hair with hues of gold and auburn is plaited into a braid behind that reaches down her shoulder-blades. Her skin is pale in colour with a sharp, large nose that is slightly crooked to the left, along with hazel eyes flecked with gold. Brushy eyebrows frame her face, sometimes called "brown slugs", which is not an innacurate term.

 

She wears a dark green cloth tunic, simple dark purple pants, a sturdy brown belt and a thin, hooded black jacket that falls down to her thighs, all of which are mixed with Skrill scales. These scales conduct the electricity that Phantom produces that would otherwise electrocute Rachel accidentally. She wears soft, black leather boots made for running with a narrow flexible rubber sole and a tread through. Her dark clothing enables her to camoflauge better at night and in the shadows. She has two daggers tucked into either boot and another within her pack, with a fourth sheathed at her hip in her belt. In the winter she has another set of clothing lined with rabbit fur for warmph.

 

Rachel wears a necklace made from grass and around it hangs a roughly carved wooden star, a good luck charm of her tribe.

 

Residence: She is clanless but has two places she calls home:

 

1. A small, isolted house a few miles away from the School of Dragons (after joining Earthguard)

 

2. A hidden, confusing cave system overlooking the Wilderness (This is used when she wants a secret place)

 

Personality: Rachel feels more comfortable in the presence of animals, nature and dragons than she does humans. But when she does let others in she is fiercly loyal and determined. She loves dangerous situations and enjoys the thrill of combat. She has a very dry sense of humour as well as a blunt, 'straight to the point' mentality. If you ever get the chance to talk to her she will seem like the 'I work alone' type and will sometimes refuse help that is given to her, but on the inside she actually wants a reliable human companion to accompany her on her journey. Someone she can talk to and share the good times with.

 

History: Rachel's mother died to illness shortly after birth. Her father raised her in the village among the other children. Her skinny apperance cemented the belief that she was not 'one of them' since she did not conform to the ideal 'Viking image'. Women were exprected to stay at home and look after the children. Her tribe was prone to internallised sexist tendacies, to put it lightly. In comparison to the other tribes, Rachel's tribe was just slightly extreme in their ideology.

 

Rachel took to the woods surrounding their villiage to find solitude, climbing the tallest of trees until she could see all around her like a bird and crouching in the damp earth to observe the natural world. This gave her a reputation as "unfeminine". She made a point of staying close to the men when they talked about hunting knowlege, gleaning information. Through trial and error she learned to hunt and track.

 

When Rachel was twelve, a trading ship came into port. The night before the traders were due to leave her villiage gave the traders a lavish feast. The tribe said it was to thank the traders for visiting but the more cynical suspected it was to encourage them to return. As it turned out, the chief didn't need to worry about the traders returning. The crew killed half the villagers in their sleep after the feast, and took the rest into slavery. Rachel was one of the lucky – or misfortunate – survivours. The Vikings traded in dragons, their skins, people and other valubles. She was kept chained below deck with the charming smell of vomit, corpses and prisoners to keep her company. She never communicated with the other prisoners since they seemed unlikely to survive the journey.

 

After four months at sea the ship entered Auction Island, where the "goods" were unloaded and sold off. Fate must hate her, Rachel decided, for she was sold to a gladitoral arena of sorts, along with several other dragons. After a month of grueling training she was sent into the arena "for glory and gold!" and such. Rachel managed to stay in the middle. She ran in the middle, she killed in the middle and she attacked in the middle. She never stuck out as a budding prodigy so she wasn't the one who fought the most dangerous dragons, yet she didn't lag behind so much that she was fed to the favourite dragons (which was the first thing a new recruit witnessed – it was supposed to break their spirits but it only made Rachel more determined to survive the arena). Those who wanted to show off and win, or the ones who gave up, were the ones with the shortest life expectancy.

 

When Rachel wasn't mulling over each dragons' weaknesses and forming she studied them in an fasination and sympathy. She was drawn to them like a moth a flame, eager to fullfil her curiousity. These observations challenged her veiws that dragons were mindless animals. She and the dragons understood each other: they were both captives, helpless at the whims of their hndlers. One dragon stood out the most prominently: a Skrill. The reason being she caught the Skrill studying her with the same intelligent observation. Some of these dragons were not like the mindless, bloodthirsty animals she'd grown up to belive. It seemed acciedental but Rachel observed the Skrill, admiring the dragon for her grim, silent skirmish for survival. Throughout her period of time in Hel, Rachel felt herself lose weight and gain muscles and callus from hours of fighting. Before the next show she planned her fighting technique which was how she survived.

 

One day the large arena doors groaned open. Rachel watched from the gate as she waited to be sent to the bloodstained sands, analising her opponent. Or to be more precice opponents. A familiar Skrill was against the bloodstained wall. A chain was clamped around its left back leg, undoubtedly to keep it from flying out of the arena should it blast a hole in the wire-linked dome. The second opponent was an infamous, vicious Monstrous Nightmare. He was a well-fed dragon aptly named "Titus", or "the King". The Monstrous Nightmare immedietly attacked the Skrill over and over again, ignoring the whistle to back off, until it had a new chew toy: Rachel. Titus' gaze turned towards her as the Monstrous Nightmare regarded his prey. She unsheathed her sword and the dragon lunged. Rachel spun to avoid the salivating maw but her sword caught the dragon's tail, wrenching it from her grasp. Both human and sword went flying towards the wall.

 

Darkness embraced her. Rachel looked up to see the Skrill hovering over her. Titus growled at the Skrill in a wordless command to stand aside. The Skrill returned the challenge in a low snarl. They may not be friends but they understood each other: they both wanted to kill Titus. They were allies for now.

 

As Titus roared his final warning Rachel darted for the sword behind her. Titus darted for her. She pivoted and brought her sword down on the iron chain restraining the Skrill's leg. The newly freed Skrill tackled Titus in a maelstrom of claws, fangs and wings. The Skrill was half Titus' size so the fight was very one-sided. No one would bet on the Skrill. When the two dragons paused and then launched themselves at each other again, Rachel did something foolish. Instead of letting the beasts fight it out and then kill the winner, the woman darted towards the fray and sliced her sword through Titus' tail. The stump sent her flying backwards but through half-closed eyes she saw the Skrill's teeth close around her opponent's throat. It was over.

 

The Skrill stared at Rachel with a cool, collected glare at her temporary ally. Their eyes met but the dragon's emotions were unreadable. Then it fired a bolt of crackling lightning upward towards the metal cage. In less than a heartbeat there was a gaping hole in the chain-link dome. The Skrill then launched herself into the air like an ebony demon from Hel, picking up Rachel as she did so. The human barely felt the sensation of movement as the Skrill tucked its wings in and darted through the hole. Then darkness claimed her as the adrenaline rush faded.

 

When Rachel woke up she was lying amongst a pile of rocks by a lake, with the grass gently swaying in the breeze. She survived by recycling the dragons' natural weapons for her own use. The Skrill, who also stayed on the island, made its mission in life to become her rival. It set about this with a vengence, continuously challenging the girl over territory and resources; to which she responded with equal ferocity. Yet Rachel sensed that the Skrill secretly enjoyed the challenge.

 

Phantom, she decided to call the Skrill, for the way she could move through the darkness like her namesake.

 

Their relationship deepened when Phantom was caught in a dragon trap and unable to defend herself with an injured leg. Thus she was forced to rely on Rachel and cooperate with the human (again) to stay alive. When her leg healed, Phantom stayed with Rachel after their bond evolved from a rivalry to friendship and they began to trust and rely on each other. The dragon started laughing at Rachel's jokes and even sleeping beside her... though the Skrill pretends not to care. After two months Rachel made a saddle for Phantom (after a lot of trial and error) and they flew off the island.

 

Likes: Dragons, bird-watching, dragon-watching, flying, climbing trees, sparring

 

Dislikes: Dragon hunters, slavers, people who think they are entitled to respect despite doing nothing to deserve it, bullies, people who hurt Phantom, chains, people who hurt dragons

 

 

...:Dragon:...

 

Name: Phantom

 

Species: Skrill

 

Age: 4 years (16 in human years)

 

Gender: Female

 

Residence: Wherever Rachel is

 

Appearence: Phantom is covered in hard scales that are void-black in colour with silver highlights and markings. Her belly is a dark, creamy beige. She is marred by multiple wounds and scars that are a testimony to the rough life she's had. Her left eye including the left side of her head is horribly scarred and chunks are missing from her lips after a fight from her arena days. She is half the size of the average Skrill and will never acheive her species' full size.

 

Personality: Phantom is a cynical lone wolf who has little trust of humans with Rachel as the exception. However, despite her usual uncaring demenour, when she does get to the point of trusting another she is fiercely loyal and will fight to the death to protect those she cares for. This extends to Rachel and anyone she considers to be friends. She has a sardonic, cheeky sense of humour and shares her rider's joy of nature and flying. She hates enclosed spaces and crowds.

 

History: Phantom was born as the last of her nest and the smallest out of her siblings. Despite this she was happy with hunting and the joys of flying... Until she decided to explore the rest of the Barbaric Archipelago, where she was promptly caught in the Red Death's web of control and forced to hunt and raid for her Queen. After years of raiding Phantom was caught by the Murderous Tribe and sold off to a gladitoral arena to fight other dragons and Vikings while entitled humans paid to watch her blood spilled. During her "arena days" Phantom met a human who seemed different to the other gladiators. So she found herself watching it with frank curiousity.

 

There was one dragon whom Phantom loathed with a passion: Titus. He was a brute who delighted in pain and torture. If she could, she would have spat in disgust. So when she met that human on the sands she used to opportunity to take down the King. That was when she hit a snag: the human saved her life. Having an obligation to pay the life debt, Phantom freed both herself and the human and brought them to an island far away from the arena; where she placed the girl by a nearby lake among the rocks. She couldn't have the human hideof a cracked skull after going to such an effort to save the scrawny creature. But the two continued to encounter each other as they challenged each other over resources, where Phantom gave the human grudging admirance for her tenacity. She slowly realised that she and the human had a better chance of surviving together. Eventually, Phantom grew to trust and rely on the human... as a friend.

 

Likes: Rachel, flying, freedom, listening to music, competition

 

Dislikes: Dragon hunters, sadists, male dragons who don't know the meaning of the word "no", slavers, chains, whips

 

Please Give a Roleplay Example:

 

CRAAACK!

 

Lightning flashed overhead as Thor vented his fury. The sound was like the world hatching. Water dripped from overhanging trees onto saturated ground. Why the thunder god had to be so loud was beyond Rachel. Although, she supposed, gods are not liable to look favourably towards requests to keep the noise down. She did not fear storms and rejoiced when one humbled itself to appear. The young rider was accompanied by a living storm after all.

 

Thick globules of cold winter rain smashed relentlessly into verdant leaves, each one bringing with it a banging noise so loud that it was as if they lived in an active warzone. The gleaming droplets beaded on dark scales; so Phantom glittered like the stars whenever lightning flashed. Old white scars stood out proudly against a contrasting black hide, illuminated by thunder. The Skrill’s eyes narrowed, the orbs like living embers. She had been crafted from the darkness between the stars. The dragon twisted her head to stare at the girl beside her and her wings shifted slightly – an almost imperceptible sign to get on.

 

Rachel swung her body into the comfortable black leather saddle. In addition to stirrups and dark colouring it had adjustments made for holding bags for long rides. She felt Phantom’s muscles tense beneath her. In an exhilarating rush of speed they soared into the air powered by months of waiting for this moment. Dragon and rider rolled and dove, zipping through the sleeting Arctic air as the Skrill played with her element. Lightning darted towards the dragon and wreathed her form in a brilliant blue tempo. Wayward sparks danced along the scales interwoven into Rachel’s clothing, which deflected the lightning from their owner towards the dragon she rode, who gladly absorbed the electricity like a sponge. Phantom’s neck-spines flared outwards in enjoyment. What could only be described as a draconian grin spread across her face. Despite the Skrill's usual distainful expression of being surrounded by imbeciles she was unable and completely incapable to hide her delight when she rode lightning.

 

The rider was beaming without realising it, grinning from ear to ear in a mirror of Phantom’s joy. It felt so good to be flying again at this speed. They had only been able to fly at "regular" speed (it was fast for the average dragon but to a Skrill it was slower than one liked) up until this point. Although they wanted to go out, the relentless blizzards and howling gales made them unable to leave the cave on the unnamed island. So now they released that pent-up energy from those sluggish months in the form of (to the average human) sheer madness.

 

(EDIT: Thank you for the advice in regards to replying to posts, Eira. I will remeber for next time.)

Hello everyone. I am Skrillrider11, as you may have guessed, but you may call me whatever you like.

 

Anyway, now that's out of the way, let's learn a little bit about me, shall we?

 

I consider myself an amature writer. I absolutely love writing and creating stories and characters. I am an avid reader and book lover. I have an entire room, shelf upon shelf, dedicated to books but there are also several large book piles in my small room. Thus Richard Adams and Gerald Durrell rub shoulders with George R.R. Martin.

 

Beside that, I am also a nature and animal lover. I love studying animals, birdwatching and nature. I love animals even though I don't have one of my own. There is a kestrel pair in my area and I watch them whenever they come by. I watch the magpies and wood pidgeons (or wood puddings) in my garden, and the fox family that live nearby.

 

I also love music, particually from the 40's, 60's, 70's and 80's. I have a vairied range of songs that will never grow old.
