Hello everyone!


I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you all. I am SunnySage, a Game Designer on the School of Dragons team. As many of you may know, Malkath is no longer with us as a Developer, but we wish him the utmost success on the path that he is walking down now. I want you all to know though that the Design team is going to continue to maintain a presence here on the forums alongside our other developers; to read and listen to the valued feedback and suggestions that you all provide, and to always work towards improving this game.


The future is bright for School of Dragons, I am thoroughly excited for what this year has to offer, along with interacting with you all on the forums. We have an incredibly special community here full of creative, supportive, and helpful players, making it a real joy to wake up each morning to work towards bringing you all content that you can enjoy. If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask – I will do my best to respond!

Welcome, SunnySage!

Are there any more official expansion packs we can be expecting to continue the plot line? Or have those officially been replaced by events?

Thank you for the question Wolf and Star. As of now, Expansion packs have not been officially replaced by Events. The SoD team is working hard to make content that all our users will be able to enjoy.

You may also know that we recently released the Age of the Night Lights Expansion roughly a month ago, which had first been featured during SoD's first Summarhildr event. On a side note, this was the first project I got to work on as a member of the team!

Summarhildr was definitely my personal favourite event! The concept of aging up the Nightlights and the addition of Valka's sanctuary was just SO cool. I hope future quests can feature that island because it is quickly becoming one of my favourites. 

Im glad the possibility of future expansions isn't completely off the table. Because I've been really enjoying this story you guys have created.

Look what the Chinook blew in!

Yoo, another actual member of the Development Team!  Hello!  Glad to have you with us! :D


Will you respond to PMs?  Malkath did, GooneyBard says he will not, so I was just wondering.  I second Wolf's question about Expansion Packs; I really hope there are more to come.  As I said before, Events are great and all, but just don't compare to the thrill of a new Expansion.  One other question I have is will you guys ever add the exterior of Valka's Mountain to the game?  The blue glow taking up the entirety of what is clearly meant to be a doorway indicates that there is supposed to be a warp, to somewhere, but there currently isn't, so I was wondering.


Thanks for being here.  It's really nice to have an almost-direct line to the people actually making the game. :)

Now, what else to put here?  How about nothing. For now... :D

Glad to be here

I will ocassionally respond to PM's, but cannot guarantee how frequent this may be. I also responded to Wolf's question, but at this time expansion packs have not been officially replaced by events.

As for the outside of Valka's Sanctuary, I do not believe there are currently plans for an "outside" portion. However, I appreciate the suggestion so I'll make sure to make a note of it!

Good to have ya!

Thank you!  Good to know. :)  I too am very glad to hear that Expansion Packs aren't entirely phased out.  Malkath hinted that they maybe weren't last time I spoke with him, but other than that, we've had no indication to the contrary at all.

Hm, okay.  Thank you!  It would be really cool to be able to explore that former field of battle... If a little saddening, particularly assuming the recreation would be thorough enough to include the remains of the white Bewilderbeast.  Although, since there's a Bewilderbeast inside the nest...  Man, SoD's canon is just... weird. XD

Heh heh...

If you don't mind, I have two more questions:

First, is/was "TestingLiveRn" one of the Development Team's vikings?  Random question, I know, but on October 28th of last year, the game seemed a liitle off, and when I was in Thunder Run Racing, I joined a lobby with about... oh, I don't even remember, probably 4 or more? of that player in it.  Given the name (I know that what we play is the "Live" version or "branch" of SoD, thanks to that development build that was somehow released in the Play Store a while back.) and the oddities, I was curious.  Here's a screenshot I took that day, but when there were only two of that viking in the lobby.


Secondly, does anyone on the Team know anything about what's "Coming soon" to Credits Island, and has been for the past 5? years (since Version 1.15, and possibly earlier) anymore?  I asked Malkath back before he moved on, but he just said that Credits Island was probably forgotten and that he'd "take a look at it", but that's all I ever heard, so I'm still wondering.

Oh Credits Island...

I am unsure as I don't know who's account that would be, however, I believe that it is a good guess that it is a member of our team.


As for Credits Island... its a little tricky, but do know that I am on the case both metaphorically and literally. It is taking longer than expected as other content has higher priorities, but do know that it is being worked on and has not been forgotten about.

17 thousand (Credits)! Those guys must really be desperate...

Hm, a slightly less concrete answer than I was hoping for, but thanks anyway! :)


Whoa, really?  I'll be honest, that was not the answer I was expecting.  I'm very happy to know that it's being worked on!  I'll definitely be keeping a closer eye on Credits Island now. >.O

Well that was quick...

And here I was thinking I could sneak something fun into my signature ;)

To clear things up, this is in reference specifically to the recent Snoggletog Story Event where we added a few environment updates on Armorwing Island. Usually, this is not a responsibility I would have, but I love learning new things and worked with our 3D Artist to get that implemented!

Welcome :-) and nice to meet you SunnySage. I have a question. How did she ask here in advance?

Will you continue to produce Expansion?
And what do you plan to improve or add a new one?

And add islands? Defenders of the Wing and more .....?

Thank you for answer

I am not quite sure as to your first question so if you could clarify that would be greatly appreciated!

The question regarding expansions has come up a few times already in relation to events, to which we want you all to know that expansion packs have not been officially replaced by them.

In terms of improvements, additions, and islands, School of Dragons is a constantly evolving game. I can't say for certain what can or will happen, but our team is working hard to create an experience you all can enjoy, whether that be through improvements or new additions.

Hi! Welcome to the forum! It's so nice to see another staff member on the forum. I really appreciate that you all are communicating with us more. I'm in the group that is curious to know about expansions. I really loved the expansions(and I really miss them)and am curious to know whether we will ever see more. If those have been officially replaced by events, will we ever see more events like Summarhildr that combine an expansion and an event? Summarhildr was by far my favorite event because it also felt like an expansion. I'd also like to know about the fate of Rescue Riders dragons in the game. I know there were players who expressed severe dissatisfaction with them being released in game but there are players(like me XD)who are interested in seeing them in game. Maybe 1 could occasionally(I say occasionally so other dragons can be added as well)be relased in between events as a compromise?

If you put in a join request in game and you don't reply on the Recruitment thread, if you could please put a brief message stating you've seen the Recruitment thread on the forum instead of the standard "Hi. Please let me join your clan." that would be greatly appreciated. :)

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

Thank you for the welcome! 


To get right to the point, expansion packs have not been officially replaced by events. Summarhildr was my favorite as well, as it was the first project I got to work on with the team. That and getting to work with the Night Lights :)


Regarding the fate of Rescue Rider dragons, this is something that I am going to refrain from talking about as it has been thoroughly discussed in this Snoggletog thread. We have heard the community though, and we appreciate all the feedback. I know you were active in that thread as well, it's hard to forget someone who has Star Wars themes in their signature haha. All I can really say in a broader sense is that I am excited for what this year has to offer, so stay tuned and be on the lookout for what's to come!

You're welcome! So happy to have you here! :D


I'm happy to know that expansions haven't been officially replaced and that it's not completely out of the question that there will be more.(Also, sorry you had to answer that question so many times. I appreciate that you took the time to answer each person.)


I knew that question was a bit of a controversial one when I asked it but I decided to ask anyway strictly out of curiosity and the fact that I think the RR dragons are cute and would love to see them released occasionally. XD I respect your decision to refrain from talking about it. Might be for the best. Haha. I'm excited to see what's in store for this year!


Yeah, I love Star Wars! It's amazing! And we now have another fan on the forum I see. Awesome! :D

Of course, who could forget the beautiful Starflight? Despite her difficult past, she has found the companionship she had craved for so long, thanks to the help of a kindly group of Nadders. Next to her is her newest friend, Quickflash, whose difficult past mirrors Starflight's, but without the kindness of a mother. Starflight rescued her from drowning and the two became great friends. Both created and given to me by the great DyliehIdol1214! :)


Well... um... I guess that's it, for now at least. Enjoy this artwork by ze great Chameishida! :) This is a nightfury designed with a Raincutter skin.

It's my pleasure!


In regards to your first question, the design team wouldn't be involved in potential model updates so I unfortunately don't have the answers you're looking for. We have taken note of our users who have brought up this subject however, so we appreciate the feedback everyone has left.


As for my favorite dragon... gosh... I wouldn't say I have a specific favorite, however, I do have a top 3 favorite dragons, which would be:

  1. Deathgripper (the way it walks is perfectly terrifying)
  2. Humbanger (the baby Humbanger is absolutely adorable and the animations are perfect in my opinion)
  3. Crimson Goregutter (just because it's cool, from its coloring to the unique horn design)

I know you didn't ask specifically about Night Lights, but I must have it be known that Pouncer is the best. And yes, I know that this is a controversial opinion as Dart is a fan-favorite, but I stand by my decision

Nah, gonna have to disagree with you there.  Ruffrunner is definitely better. ;)  And by being better than the best, none else can compare. ^_^ XD


(Just in case the lighthearted tone was lost in transit, I fully respect your opinion.  It's just my opinion that your opinion is wrong. XD)

Thanks for having me on the forums!

I'd say that I love playing Dragon Tactics the most in game. A bit of a cliche answer, but the first design I got to create was for the addition of Inanimate Objects in DT, and I got to work with GoonyBard on making this an actual feature!

Hi there!

Welcome, SunnySage, nice to meet you!

Since everyone is asking about SoD's future, I want to give you a little break and ask about your favorite games

Thanks for the break

I appreciate the break you've provided me here! 


I would have to say outside of School of Dragons, that Torchlight 2, God of War, Marvel vs. Capcom, Pokemon: Legends Arceus, LEGO Star Wars (and all Star Wars games for that matter), Spider-Man for PS4, as well as Minecraft are some of favorites. The list is always changing though, so some of these are nostalgia favorites while some of the newer ones are my current favorites!

Be very welcome! I'm really excited for this year after reading your reviews, SunnySage!
You said you followed the Snoggletog Thread, you must know I was a little disappointed and hopeless for this year...but seeing in your words I get really excited! Thank you very much!
I'd like to know if there are any plans to revive the addition of missing 2 movie dragons like Windstriker, Thornridge and Windgnasher now that Valka's Sanctuary has been added, but I understand those details would be asking too much...
so I don't think I have much to ask...but I'd like to know just one thing... what's your favorite dragon from another franchise? XD

dragons !!

Unfortunately I cannot provide any answers on specific upcoming dragons, but we have heard the community and their desire for us to look at other dragons from the second movie.


Now as for dragons from other franchises, I have an immediate answer, a thought out answer, and a shoutout haha.


The first favorite dragon I can think of is Saphira from the Eragon book series (which I just looked up and it is apparantley called the Inheritance Cycle, weird). That was one of my favorites growing up, although I was never a fan of the fourth book, and it has nearly been a decade and the fifth and final book has yet to be released :( 

Thinking through it a bit more though, another favorite dragon would have to be Gadzooks from the book series The Last Dragon Chronicles. This was a favorite of mine as well and took a different and unique approach in writing about a world of dragons. I am not sure how this series has aged as it was a children's book series that started in the early 2000's...

Finally, my runner up/shoutout would be Igneel from Fairy Tail

Let me ask you a question :-)

If you'll allow me a question, I'd like to ask.

Although I'm still in Gold position first place,But it seems to me that the Silver and Bronze positions are reversed, as the Silver position gives the least gems, rather totems, etc .... And the Bronze position often gives gems, for example 25 gems, but for beginners it is a lot of gems.

My question is:

Are you planning any improvements to the rewards in the chests and adding some special positions ?

(for example - First position Diamond's, best chance for gems and no coins, and from second position gold,since I had day coins, 9-11 Battle events and still coins even though I was Gold) Please take it as an idea, I'm happy with what it is now :-)

I'm sorry for my bad English, I'm still learning :-)

Let me respond to your question!

No need to apologize about your English!


One thing we are constantly doing is reviewing the contents of our chests, especially prior to events. I like both of your ideas about not only reviewing/improving the position one earns, but the overall rewards accessible to a player. I am not sure this is something we would be able to get to right away, but if/when a discuss around this comes about I will do my best to make sure we also discuss these two things

Hi! I'm glad to see another developer here.


Have to ask about the mobile IOS controls. I remember being able to move them to different places on the screen in the past and would like to see it make a comeback, because sometimes when I'm not able to use my computer on a trip the controls sometimes get a bit difficult to use.


Any chance it can return? It would make my iPad game play a lot easier!


She shall be the Chosen Child of Thor, given the power of Storms, and lead all Lightning Dragons into a battle that shall decide the fate of the Archipelago: Destruction or Freedom.


Welcome to my updated Signature. (With hopefully better images and links!)


My Viking, Firesome, is the legendary child of lightning and thunder, which is the Great God Thor's main element hence her steed being the mighty Skrill itself. She is destined in a prophecy to one day be the queen of Skrill, leading them into battle against Grimmel and his Evil Forces to unleash her full power of Lightning. And with her Skrill, Azyru by her side, almost nothing can take them down!

Title: The Phantom Skrill Rider


Name: Azyru

Species: Skrill

Gender: Female

Color: Gray with Purple Highlights

Titan Wing Color: Black, white spines, and turquoise blue highlights

Eye Color: Violet

Bio (Firesome):

Firesome is a young girl who had been a slavegirl to Grimmel for ten years since she was stolen away from her family by him when Grimmel raided her home island, killing her parents. She finds her freedom after meeting a fierce young female Skrill who she sets free and calls Azyru after the two form a secret bond. They escape together outwitting Grimmel's Deathgrippers and going as far as they can away from their tormenter. While resting on a small island, Firesome receives a vision from her real birth father, the Mighty Thor, and he tells her to journey to an island of Dragon Riders.

After months of traveling and bonding, Firesome and her new bond sister dragon Azyru happen on the island of Berk, meeting Chief Hiccup who takes an interest in Firesome's strong connection, almost as strong as him and Toothless, and offers her to train dragons and ride alongside other students in their School of Dragons.



Bio (Azyru):

Azyru is a Skrill who once lived fierce and free, ruling the skies until Grimmel shot her down, the Deathgripper sedative knocking her out, and wakes in a cage. She befriends a strange young slavegirl that Azyru grows very attatched to after a time, and when Firesome breaks her free, she vows to protect her like a big sister. The two would fly together for a long time.

Just stopping by...

Nice to have you on the team, SunnySage! I'll look forward to all the wonderful surprises you're going to cook up for us. 

As far as something that I think would be cool to include in the game (if you have time and no one is looking, hahaha) is more epic battle sequences.  I loved in Return of the Nightlights that there was a whole (albeit small) armada of ships or in wrath of stormheart where the mainland is invaded by wound-up robots.  Or, the times, that you fight in dragon tactica against a whole bevy of villains.  I know that having massive battles between two sides can be hard to animate and coordinate, but I think that would be super awesome to have more of those.  Also, more Stormheart and Grimmel.

A proper Forum greeting


Nice to meet you!  I'm glad that you will be joining us, and I hope you have a blast on these high-flying adventures!


Normally I would probably ask you about SOD things, but...*glances at the entire rest of the thread*...it would appear that others have beaten me to it.


With that being said, let's find out more about you.  What was your first experience with HTTYD?  What made you want to join SOD?  Who is your favorite Rider?  What is your favorite part of the HTTYD universe?  And what's one random fact that you'd like us to know about you?


I look forward to seeing you around, and hope you have a great time on Campus!  Talk soon!


(Also, noticed you were a fan of the Inheritance Cycle.  I agree with you that Book 4 could have been better, but I had no idea that there were/are plans for a 5th book.  Also, there's apparently a book of short stories, but I only found out about it today).

(I figure you've probably already figured that out, but I thought I'd play it safe.)


    Hi, I'm Lack Lunason. I'm called that because I lack many things, and I'm a lunatic. I just put son on the end to make it sound more like a viking name. I'm also a Christ follower.


      Here are just a few more things about me:

  1. I am a procrastinator.
  2. I'm pretty nice (mostly).
  3. I am most definitely kind (don't listen to those that say otherwise).
  4. Adventurous.
  5. Lazy.
  6. A dreamer.
  7. And I'm slightly crazy.

     I've been around SoD for a long time. I think I was one of the first thousand to leave Berk and sail to the school. I'm happily part of the bold clan known as POTATO BROTHERS. I have over four-thousand trouphies, although, I don't like racing much. On the other hand, I'm a Master Farmer.  (Don't you dare ask me how fishing is going!  We don't speak of that!)


      On the ranking on the forum, I've completed/on the following: Jarl, Forager, Wilderness Explore, Viking Warrior, Dragon Trainer, Drott, Dragon Master, Chief, Berk's Power Player, and......

How To Train Your Dragon







Quotes I love


"Once I set the sea alight with a single fiery breath....

Once I was so mighty that I thought my name was death....

Sing out loud until you're eaten, song of melancholy bliss....

For the mighty and the middling all shall come to THIS...."

The Green Death, How To Train Your Dragon: book 1. Cressida Cowell.



Stoick The Vast. How To Train Your Dragon: Book 5. Creessida Cowell.


"I sailed so far to be a King, but the time was never right.....

I lost my way on a stormy past, got wrecked in starless night....

But let my heart be wrecked by hurricanes and my ship by stormy weather....

I know I am a Hero...and a Hero is....FOREVER!

In another time, another place, I could have been a King....

But in my castle's ruined towers the lonely seabirds sing.....

I burned up my Tomorrows, I cannot go back ever....

But I am still a Hero....and a Hero is.......FOREVER!

Up with your sword and strike at the gale......

Ride the rough seas for those waves are your home......

Winters may freeze but our hearts do not fail.....


You are never alone if the sea is your friend......

Riding the waves of impossible quests.....

If it doesn't end well, then it isn't the end.....

A Hero.....Fights.....FOREVER!

The hero cares not for a wild winter's storm.....

For it carries him swift on the back of the wave.....

All may be lost and our hearts may be worn.....

General Kenobi...

That's a might fine list of questions you've got their that I would like to add to my collection! So I'll just jump right into it haha


What was your first experience with HTTYD?

My first experience with HTTYD was surprisingly only two years ago. Growing up my friends often talked about it, and maybe I had seen it at some point but I truly don't remember. Two years ago however was my first memorable experience with the franchise. Since then, it's become a large part of my life!


What made you want to join SoD?

During college I took a minor in game development (they didn't offer a major :/) but that is where I met my favorite college teacher and a great friend. On the first day of class, he went over his experience in the industry and School of Dragons was one of the games that he worked on. One thing lead to another, and I eventually found myself here and am happy to continue developing this game


Who is your favorite Rider?

Tuffnut is my favorite Rider, so I guess Ruffnut is also a part of that as they are kinda a duo rider situation. Their overall dynamic feels very natural and they are overall good and fun characters!


What is your favorite part of the HTTYD universe?

I think just how creative the interactions between vikings and dragons are through celebrations and sports, it shows off that even though they had their differences, their lives and paths have become intertwined 


Random Fact!

One of my favorite hobbies is Carpentry. It is nearly impossible to maintain it in my current living situation though, so I have shifted to learning more about 3D printing

Hooh :o

Hello new School of Dragons Game Developer SunnySage :o


So I got a couple of questions:

  • As the new addition to the game's team, who will no doubt be a big influence towards the game itself,  what new things or projects do you plan on bringing into this game?
  • It's really nice to see new content being brought into the game via new cosmetics and new dragons, which no doubt have very impressive models and special effects compared to the old in-game assets. Though I am not very vocal about it, I did somewhat like the golden dragon from the recent snoggletog 2021 event (Though was hoping it had its own SoD design over being too close to the RR design). However, we also love the already-existing dragon species (as you could see the big stormcutter on my siggy and how I'm such a fan of them) in the game. Would there be any plans of upgrading the models of these dragons to possibly entice new players?
  • There are also recurring bugs and problems in-game, notibly the hourly ship battles and hackers being able to finish the race using unscrupulous methods. Are there any plans to tackle these?
  • Dragon racing used to be THE thing for SoD clans. Now that Clash of the Clans was removed, can there be something else to replace that event so that SoD clans would once again be relevant and exciting to be part of?


And lastly, we always want to see you guys be more present. Okay, maybe the community can sound pretty frustrated and criticizing towards the SoD team. *Cough*  Including the recent art contest incident from me. But we'd feel better if you guys drop news about game updates, bug fixes and sneak peeks from time to time. And especially here in the forum, where it should be better regulated as it's targeted towards kids instead of someone needing to file a ticket just to deal with problems.

I am pretty happy to see you answer a few replies from this thread, so things are kind of looking up.



So yes that's all from me, pardon the long wall of text.


         For the love of Odin, read the server rules thoroughly I'm begging you                    Or Ruffy will rough you up



Because of a bug, I'm now "VicZarskykatsu" in-game. Thanks SoD.

Hello! I'm going to jump right into answering your questions


  • I have actually been a member of the team since last April and a member of the forums since October! I am unable to tell you anything specifically about new content and plans, but just know that we are hard at work ;)


  • I answered this earlier in the forum thread, but as dragon models fall outside of the design team I am unable to provide an answer on this topic. I am glad you enjoyed the Golden Dragon though.


  • As for the last two questions, similar to the first bullet point, I can reassure you that we are discussing, designing, and developing content not only related to what you mentioned, but for other aspects within the game as well.

Greetings and Salutations,

I couldn't help but notice that Racing is apart of your design list. This pleases me. By any chance will you consider popping in-game every now and then? As far as I know, most of the team aren't nearly as active inside compared to out. It would most definitely be a change that I'd enjoy, being more active there than in the forums.

Venus - First dragon (sand wraith)


The night was silent except for the light slap of her bare feet against the rocky ground. She would not have been able to navigate herself through the pitch-black sky if it were not for the tiny specks of light littered across the sky like snowflakes on a field, or for the dim flickering of the torchlight she clutched tightly in her fist. 

The wind snaked throught the trees and nipped at her toe before sneaking up to her head and whipping her chocolate hair into a tousled mane. Her mouth was dry in the chilly night but she continued sprinting to the steps.

I say 'steps' but of course, it was rather difficult to differentiate those 'steps' from pathetic lumps of rocks clumsily piled on top of one another. 

She slipped and skidded on the steps, lightly grazing her knees and elbows, but landed at the bottom in manner rather graceful for a 7 year old.

She became quieter now; stopped sprinting and instead was creeping along the sandy floor, tides gently lapping at her feet. 

Her eyes were wide and twinkling with anticipation. She tiptoed to the far end of the beach, and to a rocky cave like structure, her small hands spread on the coarse surface like a starfish. 

She whispered 'venus' and slowly but surely, a magnificent dragon, giant too; nearly 10 times her size, crept out and cocked his head. He was coloured rich red with spatters of black on his back, and thin, silvery grey lines running down the centre of his spikes. She slid closer to him and offered him a small, slightly burnt, chicken leg, which he almost immediately snatched from her hand, although carefully so as not to hurt her.

He playfully butted her ribcage with his head and the little girl, too small to bear his weight, collapsed on the side, giggling. He bounded on her and licked her face so it was coated in thick dragon saliva, and rested his head on her stomach. She scratched his neck and closed her eyes, allowing his deep rumbling breathing to lull her to sleep.


Riddle - (stormcutter)


The loud jeers of the crowd were deafening. The aroma of mead around the arena was so strong that it watered your eyes, but it didn’t seem as if any of the Vikings cared. They drunkenly staggered outside the arena, hollering at the bloodied dragons inside.  


It was the Winter Festival in Berk.


The wild serpents, tearing at each other’s throats, lashing and lunging at each other in a mad frenzy was something the Viking audience thirsted to see. The more blood, the better. Heavily armed Vikings wrapped in armour twice their size, so heavy that it would be a miracle if they managed walking a few steps, stood behind the giant wooden doors, provided that at least half of the door was still intact and not burnt to smithereens. They held onto 10-foot-long pikes, thrusting it at the hides of the beasts to further aggravate them and provide a more enjoyable entertainment for the audience. 

The dead dragon carcasses were kicked to the side and sand thrown on top of the bloodied puddles to make way for a new fight.

Behind the door sat caged dragons. They were the ones that were going to fight this evening. 

One particularly large beast was proving very difficult to be baited out in the arena. Several Vikings tugged at the thick and heavy ropes tied to her neck but she wouldn’t move more than an inch. Chestnut eyes, a magnificent hide, glossy and cream coloured and talons sharp and silver like a dagger, she hissed and spat at the Vikings. One set of her wings were raised up in the air as if to intimidate them, and the other set was nailed tight on the ground, an anchor that prevented her from giving way to the Vikings. The rest of the Vikings left their post to bait the four winged beast into the arena, and slowly but surely, she inched forwards. She lashed at their heads and swung her tail but protected with thick metal chains, they had managed to drag her into the arena to the leering faces of the crowd. There was cheering as she let her first blast of fire...


A hooded figure slinked into the cage that had once contained the stormcutter and ran to the corner of it. Just as she had suspected, a baby dragon was hidden in the shadows. He was a tiny baby, curled up and trembling. She dropped down to her knees and tossed the remains of the feast to the baby stormcutter. 


He flinched but when she stepped back, he crawled to the salmon grabbed it and returned to his corner to finish it off.

He looked up at her wide eyed.

“I’m going to name you.. Riddle,” she whispered, in awe of the tiny thing.


((if you didnt understand why there was a hooded figure rescuing this dragon but a 7 year old girl rescuing the other, it was the same seven year old girl, but she has grown))




I had two roosters called pablo and snoop and i raised them since they were 2 weeks old. 

They got eaten by a fox before they were even 3 months. :(


rip pablo and snoop ❤️

Bring me some pie!!!

Welcome Sunnysage!!! Will we ever be able to fly around the Bewiderbeast in Valka sanctuary? Also, the most important question, how are you?
So you're also an Inheritance Cycle fan! My favorite book is Brisingr!

Apple or Cherry Pie?

Thank you!


As it currently is, while the player is within Valka's Sanctuary their active dragon is not with them. We do not currently have plans to change how this works.


I'm also doing great and hope you are as well. Brisingr is also my favorite in the series (I even still have my Saphira bookmark back from elementary school). I think I am going to have to revisit these books with how much I have talked about them over this past week!

Hello and welcome! I haven't

Hello and welcome! I haven't really been on the forums or game a lot - real life and all - but do pop in to look and play sometimes.


I do have a question (and it's not about expansions!) and I apologize if it has already been answered somewhere. I've learned that the Bewilderbeast at SOD's "Valka's Sanctuary " is the Berserker Bewilderbeast from RTTE, but is SOD's sanctuary the same location seen in HTTYD2 or is it a new location constructed by the Berserker Bewilderbeast? I assumed the former, but other people have thought the latter.


Thank you for your time :)

Late to the party :D

Hi Sunnysage thank you for joining the SoD team! I appreciate your active interest in our concerns and questions, it's really nice to see the team listen and respond ^^


I have a small question! To be fair I haven't checked in the last month, but one of my favorite snoggletog skins, the Snowtinel, has very broken eyes. basically (and forgive me I'm not very learned in rendering etc) when his eyes are "open" they are random pixels of color, but when he goes to sleep his eyelids are the pink snoggletog eyes he should have. It's just a little unsettling to see xD

I've sent in-game reports about this issue and have mentioned it other places too, so I was wondering if this glitch was on the roster for fixing? I was beside myself when the Eruptodon's winter skin was returned to its full glory after years of pasty white. ^^


Have a good day and we're happy you're here!
