To become a permanent Skylord one must take The Three Trials:
- The Trial of Fire
- The Trial of Ice
- The Trial of Life and Death
Three rare items from the chests must be brought to the highest ranking Skylord around (in case of Honeydew and Xephos this is Skylord Lysander). At this point, one may finally become a Skylord. Upon becoming a Skylord you are given a pair of Skylord Goggles.
Skylord Baako only had a brief appearance as being deathly ill in bed and after a few minutes of the heroes arrival exploded into red paste, heavily traumatizing Honeydew to the point he threw up almost his entire inventory into the nearby stream.
Several other Skylords have been mentioned, but were murdered by Skylord Vitali before he was slain by Honeydew and Xephos. Skylord Vimes was stabbed and killed with a meat hook, Skylord Finnigan was run through with his own sword, Skylord Horus died of a snapped neck, and Skylord James was was killed in a duel by Vitali. Skylord Unknown had their eyes popped by Vitali, however his/her nameplate is unreadable so thus he/she remains unidentified. Since all but four Skylords are now deceased, Lysander plans to rebuild the group and recruit new members.

- Skylord Finnigan (deceased)
- The Unknown Skylord (deceased, but existence debated)
- All Skylords wear googles, probably a symbolism showing that they can control airships
- The googles are actually retextured leather helmets, as they give 2 armour points, and the mouseover varifies this
