we have dragons
We are a DreamWorks How to Train Your Dragon RP set a decade after the first movie. Vikings and dragons have been enemies since time began. The tribe of Berk has recently reconciled with the intelligent beasts, but a new problem has arisen in the form of their forgotten neighbors, the Vikrins of Yorin, who actively hunt and overpower dragons, using them as tools for war... and they're quickly becoming a danger to the Berkians, aided by an old foe, the self-proclaimed Dragon God.

LEVEL SYSTEM - RIDERS OF BERK

The Levels:

Level 1 - Newbie
Level 2 - Fledgeling
Level 3 - Trainee
Level 4 - Novice
Level 5 - Viking
Level 6 - Rider
Level 7 - Warrior
Level 8 - Dragon Tamer
Level 9 - Dragon Whisperer
Level 10 - Dragon Master

This is your character’s dragon training skill level. Almost everyone begins at a level one, or Newbie, status. This means they are new to dragon training, or working with dragons in a way that doesn’t involve killing them. Those on level one should not attempt to train a dragon with a trainability higher than one. That isn’t to say that it is impossible, but they will most likely be seriously injured or killed in the process. Training dragons found in the Academy are utilized to give characters experience to train other dragons, under supervision of those with more experience.

No rider or hunter may ride / fly / hunt dragons that are above their level capacity for recreational purposes. Select approved plots can be an exception to this rule. Approved plots generally include one time rides that are brought into being by critical or "no way out" events. Other plots, however, may be approved such as: "rodeo" rides where the dragon is not willing and will eventually shake the rider off or potentially mutual agreement flights, these are flights were both dragon and rider (usually to-be partners) ride together as if they are partners. Usually agreement flights are a one time thing and need to be approved by admin and must have a reason that ends or leads to a greater plot. No rider / hunter may ride / fly / hunt / trap / use a dragon beyond their level extent without reason.

Please note that we currently have a limited amount of FREEBIE slots for the higher levels of Berk Vikings (3 for Level 6). To reserve, post here or PM a staff member. This is a TEMPORARY acceptance to the rule where you can make a character that starts above level 5.

(Any dragon in the training academy that is not adopted by a player is thereby considered an NPC and can be played in any thread by anyone. Please, before playing with a dragon, read their personality and try to keep it realistic.)

Levels One & Two: Can train dragons with a trainability level of one
Levels Three & Four: Can train dragons with a trainability level of two
Levels Five & Six: Can train dragons with a trainability level of three
Levels Seven & Eight: Can train dragons with a trainability level of four
Levels Nine & Ten: Can train dragons with a trainability level of five
Level Ten + Formal Application to Staff: Can train a dragon with trainability of six: this applies to the Red Death and Bewilderbeast. Think a character on a level of experience like Valka.

***If your character is a dragon hunter (usually a resident of Yorin, though not always), your character does not need to use the leveling system unless they are capturing dragons of their own. The leveling system is only mandatory for riders, or characters who wish to become riders.

What if your character is already used to dragons, or has previous IC experience?

This should be explained well in your history, but a new character can only be up to level five. No character may start higher than that, unless prior consent is given or they are a canon. If prior experience is discussed in your character’s bio, your character’s level is determined by the staff when your character is accepted. We will put a range (one through five, one through three, one or two, etc) into a random number generator and whatever number is chosen will be your character’s level, based on their history that you describe to the staff.

How do you move up a level?

During your character’s training, you will reach a point where they can move up a level. To complete this, you (the player) will take a quiz based on what you have been taught in class, based on the movie(s), based on the show or based on the books. It won’t be longer than five questions or particularly difficult. The quiz will be provided by an admin via PM or in a private thread with a teacher character who is played by a staff member.

Possible examples of a quiz:

What kind of dragon uses the scent of chocolate to lure its victims?
What is the name of Astrid’s dragon?
Name one aquatic dragon species.
Name the dragon that can change its color and texture to match its environment.
What color is a Night Fury?


^ Things like that, and you have to get three out of five right to level up. Nothing hard, but kind of fun. Varying difficulties can happen, of course.

When are you ready for the next level, or ready to take a test? Bellow we have listed the number of threads that you will need to obtain through out your journey from level 1 to level 10. The numbers in brackets are how may more threads and posts you will need to move form one level to the next level if you did not start a character at level 1.

Level 1 - this is the automatic starting point
Level 2 - 2 threads, 10 posts (2 threads, 10 posts)
Level 3 - 4 threads, 25 posts (2 threads, 15 posts)
Level 4 - 6 threads, 45 posts (2 threads, 20 posts)
Level 5 - 8 threads, 70 posts (2 threads, 25 posts)
Level 6 - 10 threads, 95 posts (2 threads, 30 posts)
Level 7 - 15 threads, 125 posts (5 threads, 35 posts)
Level 8 - 20 threads, 175 posts (5 threads, 40 posts)
Level 9 - 28 threads, 220 posts (8 threads, 45 posts)
Level 10 - 38 threads, 270 posts (10 threads, 50 posts)

With a quiz between each level, of course. If you do not pass the quiz, you may re-take it in three [3] days.

What if I want a dragon outside of my training level?

Don't worry, it's not time to panic, just train with the dragons in the dragon academy and roleplay with other characters until you are at the appropriate level, and then your character can go out and meet their partner dragon in their own time.

Can my character own more than one dragon?

No. All ranks of character can only have 1 dragon maximum. The exclusion to this for all characters are the Level 1 dragons - Terrible Terrors, Smokebreaths and Fireworms - which are kept in the same fashion as a pet, like a cat or dog. However, if your character wishes to obtain a new dragon that is Level 2 or higher, their existing dragon must leave their side permanently in a logical manner.

Level 9 - Dragon Conqueror
Level 10 - Dragon Master

This is your character’s skill level - only mandatory if your character wants to OWN/TRAP cattle/wild dragon(s). Otherwise, you don't need to use the leveling system. Almost everyone begins at a level one, or Newbie, status. This means they are new to handling dragons. Those on lower levels should not attempt to over power dragons beyond their level. They may interact with higher-level dragons, but cannot own or control them. Training in dragon-hunting/manipulating are utilized to give characters experience under supervision of those with more experience.

No rider or hunter may ride / fly / hunt dragons that are above their level capacity for recreational purposes. Select approved plots can be an exception to this rule. Approved plots generally include one time rides that are brought into being by critical or "no way out" events. Other plots, however, may be approved such as: "rodeo" rides where the dragon is not willing and will eventually shake the rider off or potentially mutual agreement flights, these are flights were both dragon and rider (usually to-be partners) ride together as if they are partners. Usually agreement flights are a one time thing and need to be approved by admin and must have a reason that ends or leads to a greater plot. No rider / hunter may ride / fly / hunt / trap / use a dragon beyond their level extent without reason.

Please note that we currently have a limited amount of FREEBIE slots for the higher levels of Yorin Vikings (These slots are reserved for specific Yorin social ranks). For more information and to reserve a rank, post here, on the canon thread or PM a staff member. This is a TEMPORARY acceptance to the rule where you can make a character that starts above level 5.

Levels One: Can challenge / overpower / own 2 dragons with a trainability level of one
Levels Two: Can challenge / overpower / own 4 dragons with a trainability level of one
Levels Three: Can challenge / overpower / own 4 dragons with a trainability level of one and 2 dragons with a trainability level of two or lower

How do you move up a level?

During your character’s training, you will reach a point where they can move up a level. To complete this, you (the player) will take a quiz based on what you have been taught in class, based on the movie(s), based on the show or based on the books. It won’t be longer than five questions or particularly difficult. The quiz will be provided by an admin via PM or in a private thread with a teacher character who is played by a staff member.

Possible examples of a quiz:

What kind of dragon uses the scent of chocolate to lure its victims?
What is the name of Astrid’s dragon?
Name one aquatic dragon species.
Name the dragon that can change its color and texture to match its environment.
What color is a Night Fury?


^ Things like that, and you have to get three out of five right to level up. Nothing hard, but kind of fun. Varying difficulties can happen, of course. If you fail a test don't panic, you can retake it in 3 days. Try not to cheat and look things up, that ruins the fun.

When are you ready for the next level, or ready to take a test?

Level 1 - this is the automatic starting point
Level 2 - 2 threads, 10 posts (2 threads, 10 posts)
Level 3 - 4 threads, 25 posts (2 threads, 15 posts)
Level 4 - 6 threads, 45 posts (2 threads, 20 posts)
Level 5 - 8 threads, 70 posts (2 threads, 25 posts)
Level 6 - 10 threads, 95 posts (2 threads, 30 posts)
Level 7 - 15 threads, 125 posts (5 threads, 35 posts)
Level 8 - 20 threads, 175 posts (5 threads, 40 posts)
Level 9 - 28 threads, 220 posts (8 threads, 45 posts)
Level 10 - 38 threads, 270 posts (10 threads, 50 posts)

With a quiz between each level, of course. If you do not pass the quiz, you may re-take it in three [3] days.

Can my character own more than one dragon?

As a viking of Yorin, yes. All ranks of character can have the designated number of dragons in their respective or lower levels. If your character wanted to change or add dragons to their collection when all of the slots are taken up then there needs to be a plot element to remove the dragon from your character's possession. This could be either a runaway dragon, a death or even just a release.

What can my character do besides working with dragons??
Well, we're glad you asked! There is more to life on Berk (and on Yorin) than dragon wrangling. Maybe it's just not your thing. So here are some other options that you can do as a villager or even on the side while training dragons!

1. Shepherd:
Level required: None
Job Description: You are an important part of your town’s life, what would everyone do if feral dragons or wolves kept stealing our sheep? The towns would run out of wool for their clothes, they’d run out of meat for the winter and face it; some lonely people would lose their pets. It’s your job to keep an eye on your flock and make sure they’re there when the village needs them.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

2. Smith:
Level required: None
Job Description: Just because Berk's now friendly with dragons doesn’t mean that weapons aren’t necessary from time to time. Even if weapons are becoming less practical, they're still useful in this rough and tough world, especially with new threats incoming. And armour is a lifesaver -- any new dragon trainer would be doomed without their armor and shield to protect them from the fury of their new friend or the dragon they're trying to overpower. Oh, and don’t even get me started on tools for day-to-day life! Someone’s got to make all this.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

3. Farmer:
Level required: None
Job Description: Does this really need explaining? You tend the field and your sheep and your chickens and your hogs. You provide for the village - you have chosen a tranquil but busy lifestyle.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

4. Hunter / Gatherer:
Level required: None
Job Description: Sometimes not all food can come from farms and fishing boats. Some food comes from the forest. Deer, elk, moose, turkey, pheasants, things like that -- they all need to be hunted and brought back to eat. Not to mention plants, roots and fungi. And herbs -- doctors can’t operate without them and sometimes food just doesn’t taste right without its secret ingredient.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

5. Fisher-Folk:
Level required: None
Job Description: You own a boat, you go out in the boat and you come back with fish. It’s hard work setting all those nets or casting all those lines but dragons don’t always feed themselves. If you don’t get them fish then they’re just going to eat everything else. Maybe you can even get some fish for the village people too... if you’re lucky. Watch out for Scauldrons!
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

6. Doctor:
Level required: None
Job Description: You keep the people in your village happy and healthy! The use of herbs and other medicinal ingredients is encouraged.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

7. Dragon-Sitter:
Level required: 2
Job Description: Vikings can’t always keep an eye on their dragons and sometimes they just can’t take them with them either. Sometimes they just need to stay home... but of course, some dragons aren’t happy about this, and some act up. This is where you come in. Your job is to spend time with this dragon and spend time with it so that it doesn’t go off the deep end! In Yorin, this dragon-sitting is more likely to be done with force and violence, and even sometimes en-masse.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

8. Dragon Herder:
Level required: 4 + ownership of a dragon
Job Description: Sometimes a shepherd just isn’t enough. Sometimes you need to take to the skies and make sure the flock is all there, not to mention the feral dragons. With a dragon by your side you’ve got a 10 times better chance of protecting your flock... not to mention the sheep will both feel safer and respect you more with a fire-breathing watch-dog around.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

9. Dragon Fisher:
Level required: 6 + ownership of a dragon
Job Description: As effective as boats and nets are, dragons and nets are way better! They’re faster and can reach deeper, that is if you’re willing to get wet and let your dragon dive for those slippery succulent meals. After all, you own a dragon, dragons eat mostly fish and it’s up to you to pay a little something back to the village after the last time your dragon raided the store room.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

10. Dragon Researcher:
Level required: 8
Job Description: So you’re more of a book-type are you? Well this job is perfect for you! You can go out there into the wilderness and search out all those dragons to your heart’s content. Your job is to learn things that the village can add to their book of dragons - whether the knowledge be used for good or ill. But be careful! Wild dragons are much more unpredictable than 'tamed' ones.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

11. Dragon Whisperer:
Level required: 10
Job Description: This is a very noble job you’ve chosen. Your job is to understand why dragons are acting the way they are. This could be for wild dragons that all of a sudden have gone rogue, or pet dragons who are suddenly acting badly. It’s a dangerous but rewarding hands-on type career, and trust me when I say, everyone will thank you.
Available For: Berk only

12. Dragon Doctor:
Level required: 5
Job Description: You’re a dragon vet. That’s all there is to it. Less consideration is given to the health of dragons on Yorin, but a sick dragon is a useless dragon.
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

13. Dragon Academy Teacher:
Level required: Graduated, must be over 23 years old
Job Description: Congratulations! You have made it all the way through dragon training school and now you want to pass on your knowledge to the next wave of youngsters that are coming in! Good luck to you and may your students not be as much of a handful as you were when you were their age!
Available For: Both Berk & Yorin

14. Dragon Hunter:
Level required: any, but to own a dragon must be at the designated level.
Job Description: You are most likely a Viking of Yorin or someone else who really isn’t a fan of dragons. Do you think that they are evil and all they want to do is hurt people and steal their food? This is you! Your job is to protect your village the only way you know how: the hard way. You take down dragons, your main aim to wound or kill them. Your job's easier if you have a dragon to help you, because, well... dragons are the best weapon against dragons.
Available For: Yorin and Other only

15. Dragon Trapper & Trader:
Level required: any, but to own a dragon must be at the designated level.
Job Description: Dragons are the lifeblood of Yorin that are as useful alive as they are dead. Your job is, quite simply, to go out there and catch dragons for yourself, other people, the village at large, and for trading; the stronger and rarer, the better. Dragons kept alive can still be harvested for their blood, scales and other body parts, and they can also be used as cattle, steeds, and war machines. All you have is your wit, skill, nets, and - if you can get your hands on it - dragon tranquillisers. And of course, having your own dragon to take others down always helps.
Available For: Yorin and Other only

16. Dragon Farmer:
Level required: 3
Job Description: Similar to the Dragon Herders, this job is specifically for rounding together and tending to the dragons owned by the village at large. They need to be muzzled, harnessed, fed, and generally controlled. Don't be afraid to use force and raise your voice to show them who's boss.
Available For: Yorin only

17. Magician & Potion Brewer:
Level required: any, but proficiency only rises with increasing level.
Job Description: Over the years, the Vikrins have slowly begun unlocking the secrets of dragons -- the magic that gives them life and fire and flight, the ability to exist where other mythical creatures do not. Much of this involves using parts harvested from dragons - whether it be claws, wing membranes, tails, or even organs, as well as testing and manipulating the magical qualities of other materials such as crystals, incense and herbal brews. At the higher levels, this magic can invoke the four elements from which dragons dwell and live -- fire, water, wind and earth, as well as heal or poison. Blending potent plants with dragon parts allows for the creation of potions.
Available For: Yorin only
