Ashe wasn't sure how this was going to work. Santiago had told him that there was a place to mine for gemstones... inside the canyon! Ashe had happened to make an offhand comment about how he found the crystals for the nodes he wanted to make in the mine shaft on the outskirts of the City, and Santiago had perked up.
"I know a place. Follow." And Ashe had followed him. The Makiyan had led him to the opening of a large crevice cut in the earth, and Ashe could see ledges to make their way down. Holes lined the walls, little caves and places to mine in. Ashe thought he could see the soft, eerie glow of... The hell, was that Lava? He'd voiced this new concern to Santi, and the Makiyan looked, then made a slight neck movement that Ashe figured was close to a shrug, without human shoulders. "Is possible." Apparently, there was always the possibility of lava when you dug deep enough into the earth.
And so, Ashe had headed home to gather up his belongings. He had to grab the mining tools, reconnect with Inyala after a busy day of separation (they both always felt better after being reunited), and select a mining familiar. He had settled on Crux, a black gargoyle without Wings. He could have taken his Runic, he supposed, but Brazin deserved a rest from time to time. And Crux needed some experience!
They had returned, as a group, and Santiago accompanied them back to the crevice. Together, they looked down.
Going down was kind of tricky. Ashe thought about just riding Santiago down; he was good at leaping and could probably get them down there in record time. But he knew, from riding Sarane and Equillion and everything else, that the rider could throw off the balance. The rider had to use their weight to help the mount, from going forward to going backward. Around turns you had to be more careful not to lean into it too much. And going down narrow walk ways on Santiago's back, when they hadn't had much riding experience in general, wasn't the best idea, as far as Ashe was concerned. So he started forward, testing the rocky path that led down. It wasn't so much a path as a natural formation that Ashe could walk on, jutting out in areas, absent in other areas. Loose rocks tumbled down, down, down, as Ashe walked. Inyala hung onto his shirt collar for balance and watched, a little more apprehensive than usual. She could see the eerie glow below, and she could see complete darkness. Ashe had a light attached to his helmet, but he hadn't turned it on yet, and it was so dark...
Crux walked along by Ashe, sometimes darting ahead, sometimes staying close. This made the walking a little more treacherous, with Ashe hoping he didn't step on or kick the gargoyle. That left his life in Santiago's hands. If he fell, maybe Santiago could grab him. The Draconic was great with mobility, even if he lacked wings. With one last gulp, Ashe turned on his light, and got moving.
Morgan: No one knows yet. But I did want to make it clear that the jar itself isn't used for lotine husbandry in any way. c:

Twilight-Claw: I'm only assuming that it does something similar like a Fungal Beast that infects a Leaf-scatter. (the one with moss and I think it was a pink flower growing on the head.)

Silver: I'll try it soon and we'll find out!
Jun 5, 2020 4:16:11 GMT -6
Silver: I don't think anyone knows yet!
Jun 5, 2020 4:16:05 GMT -6
Darky: What did the 'infection' do again?
Jun 5, 2020 4:14:43 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for this information, its really useful to know! <3
Jun 5, 2020 4:14:30 GMT -6
Morgan: The lolatic doesn't disappear after one use, and can be reused on the same lotine when it is allowed to 'infect' a lotine- to my knowledge.
Jun 5, 2020 1:41:37 GMT -6
Morgan: The only effect/thing that the jar can be used for is to open up into a lolatic. The jar itself has no use in lotine breedings.
Jun 5, 2020 1:39:52 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: and the jar is then gone, if with the creature I am more guessing with this the creature doesn't disappear and it has unlimited use.
Jun 5, 2020 0:17:55 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Something else I am wondering about with the Lotine breeding is whether one would use the jar the Lolatic comes from in the breeding, or actually the creature itself. I'm assuming with it if its the jar, then it gives people only one shot in a breeding,
Jun 5, 2020 0:16:08 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Then using it in my rps is definitely just for the sake of rp's and not for anything additional.
Jun 5, 2020 0:12:17 GMT -6
Renathan: Fish are unlimited use once bought though. c:
Jun 4, 2020 22:31:17 GMT -6
Renathan: There's no additional effect for adding a fish to a magical berry in a lotine breeding. Magical Berry is kinda it's own thing. Adding a fish for roleplay value shouldn't hurt, but it has no effect when used on a magical berry lotine breeding.
Jun 4, 2020 22:27:14 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: be just for the sake of rp, and perhaps seeing if it might lent a bigger chance to multiple offspring with unique pattern. X3
Jun 4, 2020 15:31:01 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: I think your right on it being unlimited use yeah, although.. *cough* I only found out a couple hours after I started writing that I had yet to buy the fish in question so used the one you could get for free as a replacement, it still was meant to mostly
Jun 4, 2020 15:30:59 GMT -6
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
Jun 3, 2020 14:14:30 GMT -6
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?
Jun 1, 2020 6:09:21 GMT -6
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)
Jun 1, 2020 5:36:49 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: I am still interested in trading it for a green drake.
