Well, I've made some of these in requests, and so I decided, why not put them all together?

If you have any requests to put on here, just say so

I hope these help! Thanks! 

If you have any questions, send me a PM, make a reply here, and so on! I'm always here to help!

Basics:

 

 

 

 

====================================================================================

How to pause the game:

 

When you are in-game, and you have to go do something else for a while, then when you get back an your dragon's happiness went down a lot!

How to avoid that:

open the option menu, choose "Switch User" 

and when you come back just click "play"!

 

====================================================================================

Why firepits?

 

 

There are 5 firepits on everymap

On the wild "flight course", usually by the time you make it around, the firepits will have gone out

Feel free to make your own track, change it up, and have fun!

Um, Nessie? ._.

What's the bar next to our vikings' picture for? The big green one which gets a bigger number anytime one of the vikings' skills levels up. I've seen it move only once when I got out of thunder run, but nothing since and I'm pretty curious. :)

 

And how do you invite people to your farm and how do you sign their box? Because I got invited and my box got signed by my friend, but when I went to her farm I could do nothing. (also, what do I get if I gather all three signos?) ...And how do I get back to my own farm from someone else's without exiting to the school and then going back to my farm? I just figured out today that I can't visit anyone if I'm in offline mode, lol. xD

 

Aaaaand (this is the last one, I promise xD) how do random people find my friend code? Because I got some requests from vikings named with random numbers, but I'm pretty sure I didn't give them my code.

 

Sorry for the stupid questions. I figured out mostly everything in game on my own, except for these things. ^^"

What is the green bar for?The

What is the green bar for?

The green bar has no effect on anything... yet.

 

How to invite people to your farm?

besides the chest opening thing, you have to make them visit you while your in the farm

Although, you can access others farms through your friends list.

 

How do you sign their box?

The visit pop up " _____ wants you to sign his chest" will take you to their farm, and it takes you to sign it, if it doesnt do anything then read the next question below

 

Why could I not sign the box?

When you are unable to sign a box, it is usually because they already have all 3 signatures

about entering the farm? That's the only way(that I know of)

 

What do you get from the box?

 

Why are random vikings adding you?

try this in game: click on a viking, then there are options to pick, one of the options is to add that viking to your friend list(if you accept)

Hey Nessie, can you help me?

I've been having a lot of trouble in figuring out how to put saved images on the post (such as screen shots). Everytime I try to copy-and-paste it, what ends up on the post is a picture of a folder or a peice of paper! Can you tell me how to get a screen shot on a post? I have a Mac 4.

Hey, I'm Emma the Artistic! Don't mind the paint stains and soot-covered face, they're normal...

 

(Special moments from me and my dragons)

"If being crazy means having a good idea in a room full of bad ones, then sure, call me crazy: I actually kind of like it!"~ Emma the Artistic

"I could light the world with my fire, but I'd rather watch you try and do it yourself. Less work for me, more learning opprotunities for you." ~ Peony

My character:

Name:

Emma Strongarmor

Titals: Emma the Artistic, Emma the Insane

Age: 15 (almost 16)

Gender: Female

Appearance:

Long golden brown hair, tied back into a tight ponytail, with large hazel eyes and long eyelashes. Her skin is tanned, and almost always stained with soot, paint, or gunpowder. Out in public, she wears a pink t-shirt with an armored fur skirt and brown fuzzy boots, and has a surplus of satchels and belt pouches, along with a battered black helmet with curled horns. When working, she wears a leather apron with her hair tied into a bun and a white tunic with leather breeches under it. Has a black tattoo shaped like a celtic knot on her left collar bone.

Personality:

One part genius, two parts mad scientist, and all artistic curiousity, Emma is nothing if not interesting. When she was little, she had a fascination with how dragons breathed fire, even when they were attacking the village. When her parents were killed in the Red Death attack, it only served to stoke the fires of her inventive mind, leading her to invent near impossible machines so to better defend her home and everyone she holds dear. Unfortunately, Emma is also a bit of a pyromaniac, and has a dangerous attraction to explosives. This causes her Fellow Berkians to give her a wide berth, and ultimately leads her to isolate herself entirely from the village. She wants to be accepted for who she is, and not ridiculed for creative impulsives she cannot always control.

Abilities: Swordsman, scientific genius and stratagist, dragon trainer, always keeps explosives on hand.

Bouncies by Hattori!

My dragons, Peony and Spindleheart!

Name: Peony

Breed: Monstrous Nightmare (Southern)

Age: Broadwing

Level: 20

Gender: Female

Appearance: Chocolate brown, with Hot-Pink details and a pale pink underbelly. Has a small scar at the end of her tail from Dagur the Deranged's axe.

History:

Was born on the Island of Crete, but escaped when Drago Bludvist took her flock. Eventually made her way to Berk, where she was captured and put in the Academy. Emma was the only one who could get through to her, after one of Hiccup's attempts at training her went wrong. Ever since, the two have been like sisters. She is hot tempered, stubborn, and ferocious, giving her a rotten reputation amoung the villagers, but she also hides a nuturing and over-protective maternal instinct when it comes to her rider and her adoptive "Nephew", Spindle. She and Nina Haddock's Deadly Nadder, Darrien, have a competitive friendship, but she distrusts any other dragon or rider, especialy Stormfly and Astrid. She also has a grudge against Hiccup, but she'll follow his orders when they make sense.

Abilities: Copy-Cat fighting, glowing pink patterns, the usual bursting into flames

Status: Warrior of her small flock

(Edit by Sephira)

Name: Spindleheart, though often just Spindle

Breed: Whispering Death

Age: Shortwing

Level: 12

Gender: Male

Appearance

Stormy gray scales, with turquoise spines and a sunset orange underbelly. Wears a set of headgear that resembles goggles.

History:

Was found underneath Berk as an egg, along with two other eggs. Hiccup, knowing Emma had little to no fear of Whispering Deaths, entrusted one of the eggs to her, after much reassurance that she'd take good care of it. Spindle's personality is shy, sweet, and adorably awkward, with little to no social skills. He often has trouble speaking to the other Whispers he was found with, and is deathly afraid of Hiccup's new Whisper, Shredder. Not knowing any other family, he maintains a stubborn belief that Emma is his mother and Peony his aunt (though he can't really say her name right, so he always calls her "Auntie PeeNee"), even as he discovers his past and lineage. Being slightly more sensitive to sunlight than most, Emma made him a pair of tinted goggles so he can fly during the day. He's an overachiever, and always gets depressed at his poor racing skills, but excells at target and shooting games, thank's to Peony's patient training.

Abilities: Spine-Shot, Tail-Whip, Drilling, very good swimmer

Status: Scout of his small flock

 

Name: (coming soon)

Asian dragon by Glacecia!

 

Hong Taiyang (紅太陽), or "Red Sun"

This dragon is very proud, strict, ordered, and often acts like a bit of a snob... okay, maybe a lot of a snob. But he's also very willing to learn, and knows how to read and understand several languages. He enjoys watching things be created, and loves the structure of the scientific process. He will sometimes give you a message written in a foreign language and watch intently while ou try to puzzle out the translation.

Deathknight

Cold and emotionless, Deathknight is a sadistic maniac who makes Dagur look like Sigmund Freud. He doesn’t care about anyone or anything except inflicting suffering and sustaining his own existence. He’s become a bit of a boogeyman: a nightmarish creature that stalks the deep forests in winter, toying with it’s prey, then ripping it to shreds or dragging it back to it’s lair to kill slowly and painfully. It’s hard to believe such a vicious dragon could have a shred of honor, but he does. If someone manages to defeat him in battle, Deathknight actually won’t attack that person/dragon again if they venture into his territory, but don’t expect him not to destroy you if you try and take him on a second time…
