How did the labs collect weird places like this? A mansion, in the middle of nowhere, rumored to be filled with strange magic. It was what drew their interest, and they had intended to go alone. However, the moment they reached the grounds, they felt a wiggling in their unruly mane of hair, and realized that they'd acquired a stowaway. The little larvae that crawled around in the kennels must have dropped onto them when they were leaving food, and decided to stay hidden in the hair.
Sighing, they now carried Eella in their arms. She was staring around with her wide, blue eyes, fascinated- she'd never left the kennel before. This place was so open, so new. And the scaled creature holding her in their arms was warm. She snuggled a bit closer, lightly bouncing up and down in Aura's arms with every step. She was completely unaware of whatever adventure might await inside; mainly, she was just excited to be out in the world.
Amelia had been to the mansion before, but she hadn't done much inside the facility. She knew it was magical, and she knew there were prizes to be discovered. There were a few different things she could be involved in that would earn her items. Mining, going to the mansion, and owning and tending to a garden. She could work hard in the tunnels and uncover some gems. Whatever she found, she was allowed to keep. Of course she had to work hard for it, but the results were worth it. Or she tended to her garden and the creatures in there and things would grow or breed and she would be gifted items that would benefit her in many different ways. Also, a significant amount of work had to be done there to reap the rewards. But, the mansion was different. You could go to the mansion and simply explore the facility. Go into different rooms and see different things and find things. You were allowed to basically take anything that you found, and some of the things there could be really weird. The last time she had come with the crossbreeds she hadn't found anything, but that didn't deter her this time around. Today she would find something, and maybe run into other people along the way.
She didn't come alone. She had bought a Chiryma, and now she was bringing him with her. She hadn't decided on a name yet, and she figured it would come when it did. She wandered towards the mansion, a metal chain leash and collar on her creature. The large bird walked calmly behind her, pecking at the ground occasionally in search for some food. She squinted her eyes, seeing a tall black and purple creature standing by the door. Standing at least 6'5", with features that were not human. Getting closer, she recognized the being as a Ssashirk. She had heard of the species before. Like mammalian, they were humanoid creatures similar in nature to different wild creatures. Amelia was much smaller than the Ssashirk, but her companion was bigger than the one the Ssashirk brought. As she got a bit closer, she realized she was going to be getting into the mansion at the same time as the other person. Maybe she would have companionship while going through the mansion. "Hello, I see we both have the same idea today." Her voice was soft and friendly, and the Chiryma turned his head towards the other duo.
They barely gave a flicker of their tail as they heard her approach, turning only once she spoke to them. Humans were awfully friendly, and seemed to pack bond with people instantly. Aura couldn't relate, but at least it meant when presented with pseudo-horrific haunted mansions they were not abandoned to get lost and potentially devoured by some eldritch monstrosity. "It appears so." They acknowledged. They glanced at the chiryma with mild curiosity; birds were not their strong suit, but at least those giant walking ones weren't quite as bad as the tiny screaming ones. "Have you been here before? I'm new to the area, so I hadn't even heard of this place until...Maybe a few days ago."
Eella kept her eyes fixed on the woman and her chiryma as soon as they approached, burying herself further in the ssashirk's arms. She didn't want to be eaten by the giant creature. She wasn't even sure that she would be, but didn't birds eat bugs? Aura's arms were save, and birds wouldn't bother a giant reptile...right?
Riku: From what I loosely understand about the fish is that it isn't one-use, whereas the berry is. I feel like there wouldn't be any consequence of 'using' the fish...which I'd think just ooc wouldn't be counted for whatever rolls or whatever it is that it uses

Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?

Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.
Jun 1, 2020 6:02:21 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Twilight-Claw: I am still interested in trading it for a green drake.

Ridelys: If you are still interested in a trade twilight, for your fidelity result, let me know.

Riku: I got three pet levels and 15c out of it. <3 And all the necessary posts for my job salary form.

Riku: In mine my crossbreed used foxfire to burn it - but then it used incendiary illusion, which was extra scary because my cross is a plant pet with thick fur. It used the distraction to escape. I’m proud of it, and it’s okay that I won’t finish this month.

Renathan: *But of course, the RNG was not having that. / In Morgan's story, the Nyssa was a real thing, so I wanted to have two different situations for the variety.
May 31, 2020 18:15:27 GMT -6
Renathan: Yeah, the 'finished the story but the RNGods are being a butt' thing is a rather unfortunate situation to be in. I had already decided that in Ren's story, the elderly woman had lied about the nyssa and just wanted someone to talk to*

Riku: That makes sense. I've considered that before. -nod- I hope your non-hxr life is going smoothly.

Haix: Just quitting the job. Don't believe I'll be making the ten posts required per month any time soon. XD
May 31, 2020 16:34:01 GMT -6
Riku: Note to haix, I believe you can post the new application form at the same time as the quitting form. Unless you are simply taking an overall break from the job system.

Fiera Ferella: even AT the gardens yet. XD It sucks when you've finished writing your story and haven't gotten a success, because then its like "well... now what?" XD
May 31, 2020 15:51:47 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: ive found that when there's a quest that might take longer like this, its a good idea to try and space out the story beats to try and roll a success before i get to the meat of the story. XD Like, by the time i was 5 posts in my character wasn't
