Nice choice! Nadders seem like really nice and loyal dragons! And also are seemingly curious and intellegent. :) Do you think you have a least favorite specices?

My least favourite species is a Catastrophic Quaken because I really don't get that dragon! No matter how hard I study it I just can't figure out what it's traits are... Maybe because it's a boulder class dragon... I am not really a boulder class expert 

another reason why I don't like this dragon is because of its patterns... I didn't see a doctor to see if I had Trypophobia but seeing holes so close together scares me although the Catastrophic Quaken's pattern aren't really holes but rather spots they still scare me O_O this kinda also explains my fear of peacock feathers :/

     The Catastrophic Quaken is an interesting dragon, although I do feel kinda bad for it in the episode that it features in (Oh great, I forgot the name of it. XD). Although, I don't really get some Boulder Class dragons either, I'm not the biggest fan of them. I think of them as fine. I don't really how one would ride it without getting poked, but it is probably possible.

     Btw, I like your subject of, "Peacocks scared my subject away...". It's funny! :D

I am guessing if you use a saddle it won't hurt that much XD

and the Peacocks scared my subject part is just to inform people not to show me pictures of peacocks! XD

     I guess is could be more comfortable with a saddle. I just don't know how a rider could also stay on when it rolls up into a ball in midair and smashes into the ground. Seems one would have to hold on tight. Do you have (Or planning to have) a Catastrophic Quaken?

Her name is Bumbly.

I named her Bumbly because I thought it was cute and the name makes you think of a bee and I thought that the Catastrophic Quaken looked like a bee :p
She has a green body with pink spots...
I like choosing cute colours for all my dragons unless I have already planned out a name and its colours a long time ago...
And rapping is kinda fun I guess XD
I like having rap battles with my cousin sister but if I go way overboard and rap a really hard song I feel really dizzy at the end :/

     Nice name for your CQ! Bumbly can remind one of a bee! Either the CQ are part bee or part wasp. I don't really know, either way, it ain't that bad of a dragon. What is Bumby's personality like?

     Rapping can make ya dizzy? It does sound kinda fun! Is it natural for you?

Its natural for me to feel dizzy xD
Psst* -motions you to come closer- every night I will use my phone until...2 am... it may go even later... one time i stayed up all the way until my dad got up for work which is five o clock... DONT TELL MY PARENTS! >:(
And yeah... that might be why I feel dizzy most of the time because of reading harry potter and watching youtube in the dark at night...

     Bumbly sounds nice! :D What does she do? Hang out in the stables? Or just fly around?

     *Comes cloer to listen* 2 AM?!?! That is quite late, how do you get enough sleep? Wouldn't you feel tired in the morning? What do you search up?

     Maybe, but, keep in mind, that sleeping the entire night, can actually make one feel energized in the morning...and sometimes hungry. XD Actually, that is probably just me, for some reason, the chocolate I've been eating for dessert has been making me hungry...

Bumbly just hangs out in the stables she likes to talk with my other dragons but Peach dislikes Bumbly for some reason...

No matter how late I sleep I always get up at the right time (well maybe sometimes...)

I usually search up some of the youtubers I like watching which are: Nigahiga, iiSuperwomanii and of course, PEWDIEPIE!!! XD

I also have SoD forums opened on one tab, a random Harry Potter book on the other tab and Hogwarts Extreme opened on one tab...

Yumm.... Chocolate... My favourite chocolate is Cadbury Dairy Milk. I usually eat the plain milk chocolate but it has to be Cadbury!

     Bumbly seems like a sociable dragon. :) Do you like Bumbly a lot? Also, does she spend time in Dark Deep sometimes?

     Do you usually get up late or early? Also, youtube can be fun, just make sure you get enough sleep. It can be fun to catch some Zzz's and dream...although, my dreams are usually super weird. And one will usually feel fresh and happy (And it is really fun to wake up at like 5 or 6 AM, cause' you can do a whole lot of stuff before you start the day :D). Anyways, it's a good idea to keep tabs on things you look at.

     And yummy chocolate! :D Don't ya like the Cadbury commercial that comes out, like, pretty much every Easter?

Bumbly may be sociable but she definitely is the laziest dragon that I have (although my Gronckle is named Lazina)

So it is not likely that she'd take the effort to fly all the way to Dark Deep she always stays in the stable and I can't say that I like Bumbly but I can't say that I dislike her either...
I usually get up at around 12 pm... (Don't judge XD) my latest waking up time so far is 3.45pm
I would be happy to go and sleep after I had a really busy day in school but when it's holidays I'm like: who needs sleep??? The night is too beautiful to sleep!
Oh no no no I HATE dreaming! I hate it when I have a good dream too because when I wake up and realise that it was not real I would be super disappointed...
And bad dreams? Why would anyone like nightmares? My worst nightmare was SoD related... What happened in that dream was that my really close friend left SoD forever...and I was like: I HATE SOD I AM GONNA GO PLAY SLENDER: THE ARRIVAL!
And I also had a lucid nightmare once... And after I REALLY woke up from that dream I was to afraid to go back to sleep again... So I woke up and watched Race to the Edge...
And CADBURY!!! -takes all the chocolate and slowly eats them to treasure the taste-

     Bumbly still seems like a nice CQ though. :) I guess flying to Dark Deep and back would be quite long, unless the dragon is a fast dragon. But I imagine it is tiring too. Either way, hopefully she goes one day, it seems like a nice place for Boulder Class dragons. :)

     Oh, I thought you were waking up at those times on school days, if you do them on holidays, I guess it is fine. But, wouldn't one get suspicious if you're getting up at those times? Also, it is fun to get up early in the morning! I can be a morning person. :)

     Hmm...you might have just normal dreams though, that are not good, but aren't bad (I get them pretty much, almost all the time). Dreaming can be fun. :)

     You seem hungry for Cadbury! You might be thirsty after all of that:

 

Got milk?

-Bumbly bursts out of the stables and comes to lick you-

I hope you don't mind CQ saliva XD Yeah I should take Bumbly to Dark deep one day :3

I would never wake up at 12pm for school! I need a daily dose of maths questions or else... I go crazy...

and my mom really doesn't bother much about my waking up time because she thinks that I'm half owl!

I am glad to have met a morning person like you to help me stop looking out of the window every night to look and see if there are any constellations and I also have a party to myself at night... What I do is I turn on some music and dance and sing... Not so loud of course but it's fun and another thing I do is I get some chocolate and a bottle of 100 plus and watch YouTube. So as you can see my life is all craziness...

I have never had a normal dream at all in my whole life! And that is a whole 13 years!

Milk! -puts five ice cubes inside the glass of milk and drinks them all in one gulp-

My mom forbids me from drinking milk because I just maybe two weeks ago got out of hospital because of gastric pain and my mom thinks it is because of all that chocolate milk I am gulping down...

     Aw! Bumbly is a real sweetheart! I don't mind QC saliva, she is really nice. :) Could you say you know which dragon of dragons is the sweetest?

     AH! HORRIBLE MATH! XD No offense math, but it is usually just plain hard. What is your opinion on math?

     I can be a morning person, usually on weekends I stay up till' 11 PM (Sometimes on weekdays too). And then I usually end up sleeping in, which I do not really enjoy since I like getting up early, although, the body does need at least 8 hours of sleep. So, I'm semi-trying to get back into going back to sleep around 9 PM. It can be hard, except it can give one quite a happy feeling when one (Or, I) get up around 5 or 6 AM, I get about 2-3 hours to get ready for the day! :D Btw, when did you start becoming a night person?

     Well, I wouldn't consider some dreams normal, my normal dreams can be REALLY WEIRD. But I have them almost every night that I consider them "normal". Anyways, it can quite fun, especially when one gets a flying dream! So fun!!!

     Oh, well:

Got water?

I dont really know which dragon is the sweetest! XD maybe a Gronckle? Those were Fishleg's words not mine xD
When I was in primary school my opinion on maths was:
Mental
Abuse
To
Humans
But now I am in secondary school and I got a really good maths teacher so now my opinion on maths is:
Kaz and Peach's number one best subject! Second is english...
I started becoming a nigbt person when I was in primary 3 because I had to wake up at 6am and everytime I did I started having really bad tummy pains and from that they onwards I figured I was meant to be a night person... I am still getting those tummy pains everytime I wake up to school btw but I keep on pushing myself because MATHS!!!
You got flying dream before? :O I had a lucid dream once about the Iron Golem from Minecraft coming to my house to attack me so I sneaked out of the house but the lift wasnt working so I ran to take the stairs but the door to the staircase was locked so I kept trying and putting all my strength in it and it finally open and I wokd up... XD
After I woke up I searched about lucid dreams online and found out that I can actually control my dream...
And I didnt drink plain water at all today O_O I only drank 100 Plus...

     Well, basing this on Meatlug, the Gronkle may be the sweetest once trained.

     Lol! Math can be hard, but it sounds as if you got a really great math teacher! Math is still my least favorite subject...-_- Bible would have to be my favorite though. :) Hard to pick a 2nd favorite from Science, Literature (Seriously though, isn't reading fun? :D), and maybe even History. Hmm...anyways, do you enjoy Science? Science can be quite interesting!

     Hmm...maybe it was something you ate the previous day?

     Flying dreams are so cool! The three I can remember are, 1. I was flying over a building and trees, it was cool! 2. Flying REALLY HIGH over a big forest and landing over by a corral (Weird, right?). 3. Flying over a meadow of grass. Flying dreams are SO FUN! Especially when one looks down! I heard one can get a flying dream by looking up flying all day...the catch for me is, the thing I look at least during the day, I usually dream about, but what I usually look up most that day, usually, I don't dream about it. -_- Anyways, that sounds like an interesting dream. It must've been kinda scary, but luckily, you found a way out.

     I heard water is very important. I just have a hard time drinking the required amount of water per day. XD Anyways:

Ready to drink?

Is Bible a subject it your school? :D bible isn't a subject in my school but I do have bible study and I LOVE it! 

And yeah reading is fun! I love reading so much that I have a library is my house with lots of shelves filled with all the book I bought since I was... Three? XD

Science! Science is my life! Every time I go outside I try to find interesting stuff that I want to do research in... Did I mention that I LOVE doing research? XD

yeah...maybe because I don't eat dinner and lunch often...

I hope I could have a flying dream just once in my life :3

and that's ALOT of water!

     Sorry I haven't responded in like, forever (Lol!), my interests shift almost instantly sometimes, and I put Httyd on hold for a while.

     Bible is a subject in school since probably like, Kindergarten or 1st grade. I forgot whether I had it or not in 4th grade... You have a Bible study? Cool!!! Are you having fun with it?

     Oh, READING IS SO FUN!!!!!!!! But pretty much when one finds the right book, what is your favorite genre of books? What is your favorite book you've read? It is so fun just getting caught up in a story! Especially if it is one of those books that makes you keep wanting to read the next chapter! :D

     Science is fun! I'm...learning about weather prediction... It's fine, but not quite as interesting as the chapter where I learned about Atmospheric Water. Cool! What do you like to research? It sounds fun! :D Nature can be so interesting!!!

     Hope you have a flying dream soon! They're real cool!!!!!!

No worries :) I feel ya! Last year in August I stopped playing SoD for a while too until the battle event update came :p

and I love bible study! 

My Favourite genre of book Is adventure and little bit of romance to make it interesting xD and my most favourite book is Harry Potter! I can't wait for the Cursed Child to come out! :D

I like to do research about anything even small things like why do kids like candy? Oh! I might do research on that one right now!

and yeah! Hope I have a flying dream! Even with insomnia :/

     Battle events are pretty cool! :D Even though it takes about two hours of waiting time, it still seems fun anyways. :) Do you like battling Alvin or Dagur more?

     Cool! Which part are you reading from?

     Adventure sounds cool! And romance can't hurt either. :) Do you like fiction books too? Fiction are among my favorite!

     That must be fun thinking up questions and looking them up. And candy is so delicious! Ooo! And chocolate is so yummy (to me)! What is your favorite dessert?

     Well, here are two ways I can go to sleep, maybe it can help you:

1. Just close your eyes and think about what you're interested in until you fall asleep.

2. Talk to myself until you get so sleepy that you fall asleep (This could take one, or, maybe just me, 30 min. to around 2 hrs. so this might take a while XD).

 

They usually work for me, and flying dreams are so fun! Hopefully you have one soon!

Btw, would you like some candy?

I prefer battling Dagur because I get more dragon XP to level up my baby dragons but ever since I got my big star I don't really battle that much.

I am literally in the middle page of the book xD

and yeah I love fiction! But I do have non-fiction books more than fiction books because my mom signed up for reader's digest.

My favourite dessert is Ice Jelly with Aelovera is that how you spell it? 

Mane the reason why kids love candy is because, their tongue is way more smaller than an adults so the flavour is more intense the younger you are.

and yeah, I will try that :)

and candy! Yay! :D

     Dagur's ship seems to be harder to battle and seems to also have more health, so, it is pretty cool! It would be cool if they added Dragon Hunter ships! Either way, I'm glad SoD added battling! Something to look forward to every two hours! :D

     Books are so fun! And page turners are definatly great ones! Which book are you reading now?

     I guess that makes sense, YUMMY CANDY! XD

     Btw, do you think we should continue this conversation at the end of the thread? Our posts are starting to get a wee bit small.

In Game Name:

In Game Name: Greenfire

Gender: Female

Appearance (Optional): 

Personality: She can be bit weird/odd at times, has a short temperament when annoyed, and she enjoys getting a rise out of people by getting on their nerves.

Weapon of Choice (Optional): Fire; simply fire. Or any sharp blade, really. I dunno. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Adventure Level: 35

Favorite Activity (TRR, Fireball Frenzy, Eel Roast, Flight Club, Just Flying Around on Your Dragon, etc.): Chatting to people about random nonsense (like a discussion on potatoes; that's always fun).

Least Favorite Activity: Flight Club. I haven't done any of the levels for over 2 years. =P

Likes: Stoker Class dragons (mainly Monstrous Nightmares), rainy days, anyone with great comebacks (mostly during arguments), basically anything Zelda, Doctor Who, or Tolkien related, photography, programming (I did some in Python and I now take a class in school), biking/cycling, forest exploration, and YouTube comment debates (I know, I like to argue a lot =P).

Dislikes: Ignorant people, hypocrites, braggarts, people that complain about new issues all the time, Nadders (sorry to everyone that likes 'em), and over-powered or Mary Sue OCs (or a ton of colorful Night Fury OCs that lack an original story or description). 

Favorite Place in SoD to Be:Training Grounds (used to be the School before everything was moved to the Training Grounds) and Berk.

(Random) Favorite Food: Medium rare steak 'cause it's so good.

(Random) Favorite Color: Green; specifically emerald green. :o

 

Name: Gemwing

Species: Monstrous Nightmare

Gender: Male

Personality: Like a typical Nightmare, he's a pest to other dragons and/or vikings and can get a tendency to set many things aflame with or without realizing it. Sometimes he can be a total sheep brain and accidentally eat eels, Mildew's cabbages (by the way, I do not recommend eating them), and rocks. He can be a total softy, but he sure doesn't like to show it; he attempts to look menacing when he's not.

Appearance (Optional):

Bonding Level: Pretty undetermined. We've been with each other since August of 2013, but we still can have difficulty bonding with one another. 

How Close you two bonded on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 Being Not Bonded Much at all, 10 being Hiccup and Toothless): Like a 5, I guess. Our bond fluctuates depending on his or my mood.

Favorite Activity (TRR, Fireball Frenzy, Eel Roast, Flight Club, Just Flying Around with their Rider, etc.) Stealing food from my other dragons; they don't like him very much.

Least Favorite Activity: Baths, since he absolutely hates water.

Likes: Stealing, tormenting, eating, and fire. 

Dislikes: Mildew, vain dragons (like Nadders), and water.  

Favorite Choice of Food: Halibut and pretty much anything edible.

How did you get him/her: (Here's some lame story I typed I think about a year ago on how I got him and named him. I'm planning on typing up a much better story than this)

 

          A month after the school opened, I, Greenfire, decided to adopt a dragon. Because of my love for Stoker Class dragons, I chose a Monstrous Nightmare. I named him shortly after our first flight. Now our first flight went unprepared entirely. This is why:

          Once I picked up the egg and hatched it, my Nightmare shot out of his egg, grasped me by the helmet, and lifted me above the ground. I had been holding on the helmet to keep him from stealing it, so that resulted in a flight I never expected to encounter. He was unusually strong for a just-hatched dragon! He flew to the top on the school's Caldera (along with me) and began gliding along the outskirts of the school. I didn't dare to let go because of what would happen (*cough* SPLAT *cough*).

           Now he had seemed to be searching out for something out of the ordinary. I figured it'd be fish, but no. He finally landed on an oddly shaped rock that seemed to emit a green tint along the side of it. Because of my curiosity and my dragon's towards this particular rock, I decided to crack it open. What lay inside the rock were emeralds. My Nightmare seemed to be fond of gems! I decided to pick some out of the rock to bring back and show Hiccup.

           The problem was how to get back, now. My new dragon seemed to be out of energy because of our unexpected journey. We sat on the rock, waiting for someone or something to come. A word got out that a new student had taken flight upwards so Hiccup and Toothless set out to find us. They did eventually find us and brought us back safely to the school.

           I ended up showing Hiccup the discovered emeralds, and he gave them to the school's previous Alchemist (who wasn't Heather at the time). Because of that flight and gem discovery, I decided to name my Nightmare Gemwing. To this day he's still able to find gems around the school and the wilderness. He's such a hoarder, though, and he never lets anyone mess with him.

 

Here's a picture that goes along with the story:

Hi Greenfire!

     Thanks for sharing about yourself and Gemwing (Btw, nice name!)! I enjoyed reading about you both! And I like your backstory too! It sounds as if Gemwing really likes emeralds! Does he do anything particular after he finds them? And potatoes can be quite delicious! Like mash potatoes or french fries! Yummy! :D Again, thanks for sharing!

     Good idea! Just, make sure to also write somewhere April Fools'! Tell me how it goes! :D But maybe it is a good and bad idea, I may not know MN very well, but won't Gemwing maybe get angry? Although, on the upside, it might be fun to watch.

     What! Gemwing could be making dragon nip deals? If that is so, he must really like dragon nip.

Hi ScorpionRock!

     Thanks for sharing about yourself and Heidi! I had fun reading about y'all! You both must a strong bond if you rate it 8/10! Although, opposites attract, so it makes since why you both are a great team! And I like your in-game name! Do you like scorpions? Btw, nice choice for a choice of weapon! I'd probably choose a bow and arrow too...if I knew how use one properly. XD I mean, I know how to use one, except I have never even tried it. Again, thanks for sharing!

I don't like scorpions, I

I don't like scorpions, I think they're kinda disgusting. But at the day when I named my in game character, I was actually checking the personality of the scorpio constellation. XD

     Hmm...constellations can be quite interesting, the problem with constellations for me is I have a hard time finding them. XD Anyways, it's a nice name. :) Are you a scorpio?

Continuing Our Conversation

Hi! Our responses were getting kind of small, so I decided we needed a new reply.

 

Yeah, bonding time was my favorite time. :3

 

Ginger snap cookies were definitely Jetta's favorite! She didn't like any treat nearly as much. And she was a notoriously picky eater. She liked carrots and apples okay, but horse treats depended on the type, and she hated peppermints. (What horse hates peppermints?!)

 

Yeah, Dragonese was even harder to speak than it was to learn to listen, especially since it involves a lot of clicks and pops. But I'd definitely say learning it was a huge advantage.

 

I don't really include Dragonese as an element in my prose fanfiction, honestly. But I used in screenshot comics because having the dragons talk made the comics much more interesting and provided a lot more chances for comedy.

 

It won't be summer vacation for me, unfortunately. I'm a college student; I'll be working and taking summer courses. It's never-ending. :/

 

When I first saw the Shivertooth, I saw its picture and read its description in Rise of Berk, so I didn't have to imagine it as mischevious; it's description said so up-front. In fact, when I first read about it, the first thing I thought was "This is the Jack Frost of dragons." And Frostclaws has been loosely based on Jack Frost ever since...including his name! XD

 

     Well, I guess skill is a great way to go. :) Although, it can probably be frustrating when one gets a gas bomb, or a gets spun out of control, or gets bumped by another racer (Especially if one's dragon has a bad acceleration). :/

 

Yeah, the bumping and traps in races are very annoying. The bumping especially; the Shivertooth actually has pretty decent acceleration, but it gets bumped by everything! I have a friend who mostly races with a Skrill and she almost always wins our races because every time I get close and am about to pass her, Frostclaws comes to a standstill. And since it's a game feature, there's little anyone can do to control it. It's not like people are trying to bump me; it just happens.

 

Hmm...not sure which Death Song armor I prefer. Maybe the bronze just because it's a better match for my own Death Song.

 

Yeah, Winterwind and Icebones never really got over their initial hostility; they're not very friendly with one another. But I think Icebones cares about her, and me, more than he wants to admit. ;)

 

No, don't make accounts on Sunday. They always go super hayware! I don't know what happens on Sunday, but the glitches get really bad, often kicking people off the game. Happens every weekend. It hasn't been working for me; I've got the "missing dragons" glitch currently. That's always a little nerve-wracking, but they usually come back the next day. You can try tomorrow if you have a chance.

 

Unfortunately, I can't really help with what to do with your first dragon. That's an issue every person has to learn how to deal with. I pretend that Brightclaw is the dragon that I learned to ride on, like the lesson horse I rode at the barn before I got Jetta, and I still like her a lot, even if she's not my main dragon. But people generally learn to either fit their first dragon into another beloved but more secondary role.

     Okay dokey, now that I see them, they are gettin' a wee bit small. I wonder why it does that.

     Wait, she doesn't like peppermints? Does she refuse to eat them or somethin'? Well, it is probably kinda of unique (To me) that a horse's favorite treat is ginger snap cookies. :)

     Did your dragons understand what you were saying at first? Or did some words sound as if they were others? Must be cool though! :D And that is cool how Norbert knows it too! Did he learn from Hiccup too?

     Well, you do have weekends off! :D Although, school can be pretty hard...unless one likes it.

     Good idea! I'd be nice if its animations were changed that is walked on all fours, but this version looks pretty cool too. :) Although, with all the dragon editing the SoD team has been doing, there is chance that it will happen. :D

     It is really frustrating, but I guess it is a good idea to lessen one's risk of getting bumped by steering clear of their competitors! Really wish it wouldn't happen, it is a wee bit realistic that way, but still frustrating. Btw, how do you and Frostclaws beat Snow Wraith racers? Seems as it would be pretty hard!

     The Death Song armor seems so cool to me! Probably my favorite! Or the Skrill's...Or the Nadder's... But I like how the Death Song's armor also seems to have less spikes then the Skrill's (Which is one thing that did bother me with the Skrill's Armor. Even though it is a game, it does look like one would have to take precausions to not get cut themselves, and not to cut their dragon. And besides, I'm not really a spikey type of person). And the wings look pretty cool too! :D Do you wear the Death Song's armor a lot or do you wear another type of armor more?

     That is nice how Icebones cares about you two! And I like how you made him a knight like character in your Death Song comic. :) I do find it interesting how he calls Icevein, boy. Do you think you'll do a story one day on how you got Icevein?

     Yeah, I've seen lots of threads today saying that they have their dragons missing. But, one good thing about this Sunday is that at least the game didn't crash and keep vikings out of the game for a few hours. I think I'll probably do it tomorrow...if I'm able to make my choice by then...

     I'm just afraid adventuring with another dragon will leave a bad impression and hurt his/her feelings if I do so. But I think that if I just continue to give that dragon lots of attention and care, it will end up okay, right? I can get sensitive about some of the strangest of things. Btw, just wondering, does the Skrill and Death Song join their riders (As Teens or Adults) in the lab for experiments?

Yeah, the first time I gave Jetta a peppermint, she spat it back out and then looked at me liked I betrayed her! Peppermints are really not her thing. XD

 

Winterwind learned to understand Norse before Whisper learned Dragonese, so sometimes Whisper ended up using the wrong words in Dragonese and Winterwind would correct her. But yeah, some words sound like others. It was a rough learning curve.

 

Norbert, meanwhile, is a natural at language. He picked it up just by hanging around Whisper, Winterwind, and Frostclaws. Whisper hates that he can adapt something so easily that took her so much effort. XD

 

I don't think SoD will ever correct the Shivertooth. They've been doing animation updates, but the Shivertooth has fundamental design differences to the Rise of Berk version, and SoD doesn't change a dragon's design once they release it. We'll just have to take the Shivertooth we're given.

 

Frostclaws and I beat Snow Wraiths mostly by racing at top speed the whole race, taking shortcuts, and cutting corners as close as possible, shaving off seconds. And I think the Shivertooth is actually faster than the Snow Wraith with a Defender Saddle. We'll start out behind due to the Snow Wraith's great acceleration, but in time, we'll catch them unless the Snow Wraith rider is more skilled than I am.

 

Generally I actually where different pieces of the Groncicle armor from the Icestorm Island Expansion pack and the Snow Wraith armor, rather than one of the dragon armors. The reason is my character is supposed to be closely tied to ice dragons, so I wear clothing reminiscent of ice dragons. The outfit I use in my comics is the thermal wear needed to explore the ice caves on Icestorm Island so I can explore my domain freely. So of the newer, full-set winged armor, there's not really a set I wear often or more than the others.

 

I've been wanting to do Icevein's backstory in screenshots. The problem is, his backstory is basically the story of how one gets a free Groncicle from the Icestorm Island pack. I have a total of five Vikings, and on my main Viking, WhispertheWolf, I've completed the Icestorm Island quests. To do Icevein's backstory, I'd have to do the Icestorm Island quests with another female Viking. I do intend to do that one day, but I have to plan it out. Working title is The Wolf and the Howl: Adventures of Icestorm Island. (I'll probably come up with a more creative title later.) So there will be a comic that includes Icevein's backstory but...probably not any time soon.

 

I also want to do Evermore's backstory...and since his is also tied to an expansion pack, I have the same problem. I won't do it until after the Icestorm Island story, though, so...that could be awhile.

 

All dragons join their riders in the lab for experiments unless a specific type of dragon is needed for the experiment, in which case the game will "loan" you a dragon: Toothless, Meatlug, or even just a random Skrill that Heather brings by. So in most lab quests, yes, your Skrill or Death Song or Nadder or Gronckle or whoever your active dragon is will be there with you.

 

I think it will end up okay if you give that dragon lots of attention and care...level them up in battles and do Flight Club classes with them. Think of it like...having multiple dogs or multiple horses. You probably have your "one" who is your best friend through all, but all the others are still part of your family who you love and spend time with from time to time.

     But peppermints are so delicious, well, everyone probably has their likes and dislikes. Do you have a lot of ginger snap cookies handy?

     Well, I don't imagine learning a new language (Especially dragonese) could be simple...except for Norbert. How did he figure it out so easily? I think it is a nice language to learn though, it allows the rider and dragon to communicate really closely. :) But still, how did Norbert find it so easy to learn?

     I don't know if the Defenders Saddles (And the clothes too) actually give the bonuses. Do they? Can you feel a change in your dragon's stats after you put something on that boosts them? Although, those Snow Wraith racers are pretty fast! Although, it is cool how you two can beat them! It sounds as if Frostclaws definatly likes racing!

     Good point there, I guess an ice dragon's armor would suit ya best. :) Although, it is nice that the SoD team adds viking armor! Cool thing to have! But, maybe one day, the SoD team could add dragon armor. It's an idea, and it could also give your dragon more health during battles! What do ya think?

     I like the name for your story! :D It's an idea to do it, although, you could add a little plot into how you got Icevein, just to make things more interesting. And Evermore's would probably be a good idea too!

     I understand that during an experiment that includes dragon fire, a Death Song would probably not come in to do that. Except, I think even when the experiment has no sign of fire involved, one's Death Song doesn't join. I don't know, either that's me, or Death Songs don't like experiments. XD

     I guess you have a point there. :) I just don't want my first dragon to grow up sad or depressed. Btw, what was it like raising Evermore? Challenging? Fun?

I learned to keep a lot of ginger snap cookies handy when I discovered Jetta liked them. ;)

 

Norbert's ability to pick up languages is actually based on my real-life roommate. She learned Spanish from me coming home and stammering through my Spanish homework and German by listening to her boyfriend and his friend babbling jokes in German. She just is naturally good at languages. I guess some people just have that ability. (And OH was I envious of her as I staggered through learning rudimentary Spanish! If some people are naturals at language, I am not one of those people.)

 

Well, I know everyone debates whether or not Defender Saddles make a difference, but here's what I know; if Frostclaws doesn't wear a Defender Saddle, I never seem to quite catch those Snow Wraiths. If he does wear a Saddle, we seem to slowly gain on the Snow Wraiths throughout the race. So I think they do actually give a bonus. I've noticed a small difference using them. It's small, though. You still need skill to have a chance against the speed machine Snow Wraiths.

 

Dragon armor would be super cool! I like the idea of them increasing health in battle.

 

Oh, there will be more plot with Icevein in Adventures of Icestorm Island than just the "base" storyline. The Icestorm Island quests will also be the introduction of other Groncicles, as well as Icebones and my Speed Stinger OCs, particularly Fleetsteps. And there will be a bit about how Icevein relates to both Whisper and Winterwind and why he made the decisions he did.

 

I honestly haven't done a lab experiment with Evermore since I got him, so I never thought there'd be an issue with your Death Song joining you in the lab. In my experience, any dragon you have that is your active dragon at the moment joins you in the lab.

 

Raising Evermore has been super challenging! Death Songs are not meant to be social, not meant to bond, and...not really easily tamed. Evermore came to us as a hatchling, sure, but getting him to be "part of society" is proving harder than I thought. But it doesn't seem impossible; he's learning. :)

     A nice snack to have around for Jetta and yourself too! Sounds delicious! :D

     I wonder how some can learn languages easily, it seems hard! You know Spanish? Cool! It's really confusing to me. :p

     I don't know whether Defenders saddles work or not, but I hope they do. And also the clothing that is supposed to boost a dragon's stats. But, I'm guessing your correct if you can feel a change in Frostclaws flight! I really don't know how Defenders saddles are supposed to improve flight, in my personal opinion they seem like they'd be heavy. Just my personal opinion, what is your opinion on Defenders saddles?

     I hope, when the SoD team has time, they can do Dragon Armor, finish the rest of the war paint bundles (It'd be nice if we could have the warpaint without the hero skins), and maybe finish Novice Saddles too (And maybe they could boost one's dragon too, either in TRR or just increase happiness a little). What do you think? Oh, and also, I've had this idea for a long time. Here it is: Since I like hrose back riding so much, I thought it'd seem logical to put stirrup like things on dragon saddles (Like how Toothless' saddle has it), mainly with Novice Saddles though, since, while a rider is still learning how to fly on their dragon, stirrup like things could definatly help. What do you think? Good idea? Or totally awkward?

     Sounds like the Adventures of Icestorm Island will be interesting! I like your idea about putting in the Groncicles, Icebones, and OC Speed Stingers! Sounds like it'll be fun to look forward to and read it! :D

     Raising Evermore was challenging? How so? I imagine a dragon species that is not used to bonding would probably be a challenge, but raising it from a Tiny Tooth seems it'd be easier, right?

I'm still learning Spanish. I

I'm still learning Spanish. I struggle with it. :P

 

I don't particularly like the Defender saddle's looks, I'll admit. I use them anyway due to the fact that they do seem to make a (small) speed difference...and they're also the only saddles available for the Woolly Howl and Shivertooth, so I of course had to get them to feel satisfied (though now I never use the Woolly Howl one, so...that was pointless).

 

In real life, saddles are great for rider balance. Think of riding a horse bareback versus riding with a saddle. It's a lot easier, right? Even I have a lot of trouble with bareback at a hand gallop or jumping, and I would never jump higher than 2 ft 5 in. or go at a full gallop without a saddle, even with Jetta. I've never managed to get my balance that good (I think I need more muscle). So on the one hand, it does make sense that a saddle would improve a dragon's speed because it would improve the rider's balance, allowing the rider to let the dragon go faster.

 

But the Defender Saddles don't look like the type of saddles you would want to race with. They're too seat-like and secure for the rider; a good racing or jumping saddle would throw the rider's weight forward to put the weight up front and off the dragon's back. Also, you want just enough saddle to secure the rider's balance but not enough to weigh the dragon down. The Defender Saddle looks bulky and heavy, and it seems like it would hinder the dragon's performance and speed more than it would help the rider. Of course, the purpose of the saddle is in the name; it is designed to defend, creating a seat-like environment that secures the rider and having a shield to protect the rider and spikes to intimidate enemies. This thing shouldn't be a racing saddle; it should be a battle saddle. Now it was released in the game before battles were a thing, but I kind of wish they had other, sleeker saddles that increased racing speed and made these saddles increase health in battle instead. That would make more sense. (They do have Sleek Saddles in the store, of course, but they don't increase speed as much as Defender Saddles, and they're only available for starter species.)

 

It would be great to have a lot more Novice Saddles and war paint bundles! But it seems like the game has stopped making these. They haven't released war paint bundles in almost a year and Novice Saddles more than that. I'd like them back. :(

 

Oh, well, we'll probably get more Dragon Armor at least!

 

Stirrups on saddles would be cool and problematic at the same time. I think it'd be great for riders to have stirrups, but the riding position of the Vikings is set regardless of what dragon they're sitting on, meaning their feet stick out differently on each dragon. Also, I think the stirrups would probably sink into the dragon every time it turned or flapped it wings. So it'd be cool, but I think there'd be some basic computer problems with it that would make it more awkward than useful. The game graphics would have to improve to manage something like that for so many different dragons.

 

Glad you're so interested in my Icestorm Island story! Hopefully I'll get a chance to write it all soon. :)

 

The main issues I've had with Evermore is that he's not interested in listening to me and he's kind of nippy and snappish and never knows when not to pick a fight...whether its with me or an actual adversary. (I might as well be the adversary if I'm telling him to do something he doesn't want to do.) It's probably just the solitary and aggressive nature of Death Songs. Given that he's a Tiny Tooth, I'm really glad I'm not trying to train an adult Death Song; seems like it'd be hard. But Evermore's got a good heart, I can see that, and I know he cares. Getting him to believe he's not the one in charge and that he should spend more time with others than alone is not easy, but he always comes around when it counts.
