My Skrill Azyru welcomes you!

Welcome to SOD! :)


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!

There's a Fanfiction story I'm writing. It pairs one of my favorite books, Harry Potter with a new favorite Disney Cartoon Show: Gargoyles called Brooklyn and the Boy Who Lived.



Just finished my story with 112 chapters! So happy!





I love you, Brooklyn from Gargoyles!




Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw


Or yet in Wise old Ravenclaw, if you a ready mind.

Where those are wit and learning

Will always find their kind.

Biographies and Profiles of Firesome and Azyru:


Name: Firesome

Gender: Female

Eye Color: Hazel

Hair Color: Light Brown

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

Viking Companion/Sister: Firesome



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.

Wiggles the Whispering D.eath ate my subject

Hello. Here's some vocab. (Sorry for my spelling. The forum's spellcheck is broken for me and it's h.ard for me to see what's spelled wrong to fix manually so I tend not to bother since the SOD forum is a leasure activity for me)



OP = Origanal Poster/The maker of a thread. (Often used when someone doesn't want to copy someone's name down or doesn't remember and doesn't want to open another tab to look it up)


OP can also = Over Powered when used in a RP context. Basically, your charicter is too strong and it's overshadowing other charicters or causing problums.



RP = Roll Play. The style most commonly seen on this forum is basically writing a fanfic but with friends (though there are more rules bound versions in other parts of the internet that require dice or some other way of doing math to figure out what charicter does what amount of damage in a fight and stuff like that. It's just not commonly seen here but the term RP is a general term that includes stuff like that too). You play a charicter (or several) and interact with other people's charicters. This can happen both on the forum or in-game though the chat makes the in-game one kind of h.ard to do.

RPs have always been popular on this forum (though use to be even more so in the old days) even though many of them don't last. So if you see RP in a thread title chances are that's what is being offered.



OC = Origanal charicter. Technickally meant for charicters not connected to other franchises but often used to discribe fan made charicters anyway.

FC = Technickally the correct term for fan charicters if you want to be a deffinition stickler or just want to know for knowlage's sake. But on this site people usually just use OC for basically all types of charicters.





When someone draws several versions of a thing and gives them out to people. Sometimes with spesific conditions that have to be met and sometimes without.




An image that is drawn or colored to make different charicters. Bases should mainly be images that were spesificly made to be bases though nobody will get mad at someone for tweaking screenshots of the offical franchise since Dreamworks doesn't care. People WILL get mad at somebody using their arwork as a base without permission.





People who manipulate the game's code to get them stuff unfairly or do weird stuff to their dragons.

Hackers are not well liked because many of them cheat at races, steal from the game and in the early days there were a few cases of hackers actually manipulating other people's vikings. That hasn't happened in a long time though so don't give anyone else access to your account and you should be fine.




Oh and in order to post pictures on this forum you need to have a image hosting cite. (Basically, somewhere else that you can upload pictures to) Then you can use the URL, click the thing that looks like a painting in the toolbar of the thing you type your stuff in and put the URL where it asks you to.


There is a limit on the hight a picture can be or the forum will squish it. Resizing before putting it on the forum is better for other people's devices but the re-sizing the forum provides will fix the squishing (if you're posting an art thing and want people to be able to drag it to another tab to see it full size or something) as long as you keep an eye for the little lock icon in the size thing as that sometimes opens. When it does, the picture will not size its width with it's hight and that's about as problumatic as it sounds.

Why hello! Lots of new peeps XD I do hope you enjoy your stay in this.. crazy place...

Some more tips

-Don't spam plez, just click the 'post' button once and not spam click, that results in many posts :P

-When in a rp or a art thread don't click the 'reply' to someone else's post, instead use the one at the very top or bottom of the thread :D

-Be nice! I mean a lot of us are pretty nice and will continue to be unless things happen :0 that being said, please don't get into drama :3

A loving talent has grown within the soul, one that must take flight elsewhere.

For I am no longer a dragon bound to earth, but bound to stars and the treading expanse."

*nyooms from hyperspace*

*GASP!* A NEW HUMAN!!!!!!! :O



I think youll quite like it here! Everyone is super friendly and the forums are generally drama free!


My advice is avoid drama, trust me you do not want any piece of that...

another tip is to check out the MANY art request threads that are open right now!


And to add to hypergoofs vocab lingo list:


Tracking: When your are tracking a thread it means that adding it to your track list. Your track list can be found in the "my account" tab at the top right near toothless and hiccup! When you click there you can see all the threads youv made or posted on! Be very careful of which threads you track because once you track them you cant remove them from your track list. Tracking can be helpful if you want to fill out an art form but dont have the time to fill it right at the moment!


Requesting Art: Many ppl on the forums are artists create what are called art request threads! Here artists will take commissions from other users and create art that they can used to decorate their siggys! (always credit the artist somewhere though ;)) Depending on the type of request many artists will ask you to fill out a form or give detailed descriptions of what you want them to make. Some have a base that you can customize while others just draw whatever it is that you resquested! Before you request anything ALWAYS read the begining post thats where the artist will state rules, spots, and forms as well as any addtional info! One thing though, when an artist says DNR or do not reply do not directly reply to that post! Artists use that post later!


Sorry about huge paragraph! Glad to have you here! :D

Running around aimlessly, what about you?

Welcome, bud!

A rule of thumb is to only hit 'submit' once, even if it says that it 'timed out', and to hit reply at the bottom, and to not reply to someone's comment, cuz they can't edit it if you do.

Also, don't be surprised if the battle event ship is invincible (because of a bug) in SoD, and that most ppl will give you art for free if you ask for it.

One last thing. You can't edit the first post (if you make a thread), and don't be afraid to experiment and have fun!

Adding on to Drake's tip, from my experience, if a post takes too long to load, you NEVER have to press the post button a second time. You can leave the page, and see it already posted. Counting to 5 or 10 should be enough before leaving. (yes, I've said this before.)

Heya!  Welcome to the crazy place!  I think you'll enjoy your time here. As for "Tips or tricks":

  1. ALWAYS POST IN THE CORRECT SUBFORUM.  So many people don't do this, and it is extremely annoying, plus cluttering.  The subforums have description text for a reason; please heed it.  As a general guide, you should never post a new thread in any of the first three subforums; those are for the admins to use for announcements and whatever.  If you don't know which subforum to post a thread in, post it in The Great Hall.
  2. Take the advice others have given about never replying directly to a post with a grain of salt.  A lot of the time it's a good idea to follow that, but there are some threads (like my Dragon Banners one, for instance -shameless self-plug-) where direct replies are expected and are to be made in order to keep the thread nice and clean.  Do note that once a direct reply has been made to a post, that post can no longer be edited except by the Admins, though.  Also note that you cannot delete a post once you've made it.
  3. Be courteous.  There are some users here who are often not, and it's never fun to read their posts.
  4. Hypergoof has already mentioned that you need to use some image-hosting site in order to post images, and my recommendation is  They've never failed me once.
  5. Love Dragons.
  6. Before posting a new thread, check back though old ones.  Especially in the case of bug reports and the like, it's much better to have a single thread for a given topic.  Only post a new thread if it's something new.  Of course, for things like art offers or other services you render to your fellow users, this doesn't apply.
  7. Shouldn't need to be said, but read and follow the Forum Rules.  You'd be surprised at how many people violate them in some way or another.  Now admittedly, most of these violations seem to go unpunished, but if you never break the rules, you never have to worry.

I think that's all for now. :) So I bid thee



Proverbs 25:11

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.


Proverbs 15:1

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.




What is a friend?A single soul...Dwelling in two bodies.

Thank you for the lovely tips :D

Everyone on here has been so helpful haha!! I I've picked up that you shoudnt reply to certain posts directly, but does that only really apply if they explicitly say so? or is it general rule of thumb? Also! i directly replied to this one because i am not quite sure how to reply to specific people when clicking the big reply button at the bottom, if i could get some help with that id appreciate it :'D sorry i am not the most tech savvy and easy concepts can be a bit hard for me hehe

But i genuinly appreciate you very much! this community seems very nice :-)

You're welcome. :)

Eeh... I can't really say one way or the other.  Generally, if I'm replying to a specific post I'll use a direct reply, but I'm not the most active user around, so I'm no expert on the topic.

For the most part, it is. :)

Wiggles the Whispering D.eath ate my subject

It's mostly when a post says do not reply or DNR.

Otherwise direct replys are ok.....unless you're in a RP. RPs prefer to be able to have all the posts editable in case someone does an oops somewhere and needs to fix it.

Normal conversations are fine with direct replys and sometimes you activly need to use them if a mini-conversation happens in a larger discussion.

Welcome to the forums! Most useful tips seem to have been given already.

I'll add that you want to make sure you want to track a thread before you post in it, since you cannot untrack threads, ever. Some threads sare seemingly endless! lol.


If you like to post pictures, be sure to resize them appropriately before uploading them (also, I recommend a service like imgbb- postimg doesn't work for many).

A lot of people on here like to scale their images through the forums, which isn't true resizing and it can lag up threads super easily. If scrolling goes choppily or loading takes a long time, you can thank those people for it! Same idea when it comes to large GIFs. The max display height of an image on here is 400px, but this limit does not exist for signatures. ~650px is about the width of a non-reply post.

Nice to meet you! I'm Shifter. Below is some random stuff in no particular order for now... Actually, the order is amazing art idk how people do it, random timeline revations inbetween, and what is totally the end of my signature... yep

Absolutely awesome clan banner by EmeraldHuntress65! I highly recommend getting a clan banner from her.

Also, my (old) profile picture was edited by the amazing (I need to get new adjectives*) Root! I think the thread is still open and you should totally go and get thy viking upgraded.


Here is some artwork done by some very talented individuals...

Look at this amazing art by Reyna! She drew Ivy, my titan boneknapper, perfectly! He looks awesome and so sweet!


Oh my word, this is Ivy as a human! I can't get over how good this is and how much detail was put into this amazing art that just made a very special boneknapper come to life. This masterpiece was made by DyliehIdol1214

(the picture needed to be this big so you can all of the awesomeness detail)


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH LOOK AT MY BOY SURGE!!!! He's a titan scuttleclaw as a human. He literally looks so amazing and perfect. I cannot thank you, DyliehIdol1214, enough for doing another of my boys. I'll finally stop bothering you now XD

Like, look at him and Ivy, I literally have no words.

(Running into squish problems again, will post link to the actual picture on their deviant art soon so Surge and Ivy's portraits can be fully appreciated)-------squish problems have been resolved, as of 02/03/2021 (you can also tell where I'm from just from that lol)------nevermind, still having squish problems as of ten minutes after I thought I fixed it -.-


You guys, look at Sam. This completely amazing drawing of my first titan deadly nadder (adopted back in 2014), just warms my heart and makes me so happy! Thank you SilverNight so much!


Sooooooooooo, this awesome dragon was created with three words: whelmed, shadow, and forever. Flitt took on the challenge and made this beautiful work of art. I simply can't get enough!


*note to self: look up synonyms for awesome

*note to readers: if there are typos, tell me s'il vous plaît

La fin. Je prends mon arc et je prends mon congé.
