It is safe to assume that there is a field set up for your houluh to do it's work in that is set up for any job you can think of. If something is missing that you need for your demonstration, the staff will go get it for you. Feel free to use anything within reason in your set up to display what your houluh knows how to do for their job. Please remember to repost your houluh's image, loyalty, levels, and stats in your first post, and put all of the moves/abilities/tricks your houluh does in the post in brackets or parenthesis at the end of your post/s.
The one with the most points will win the Maestre di Marq and become a Salonne Show Champion. Participation prizes are earned points only. Remember that a houluh with a Maestre di Marq can never enter a Salonne Show again.
Morgan realized that it was their turn a little later than they otherwise would have meant to! The human chuckled, and then called Selene to follow them out to the middle of the ring. They did have a reputation to uphold, but honestly today they hadn't really wanted to try to win this thing. "G-greetings! T-this is Wiltholm Estate's Bark At The Moon, daughter of Wiltholm Estate's Worse Than Nicotine!" The human said, showing her off. "E-even though she's still in training, she's still v-very tough!" Morgan said, grinning. Then, they turned to Selene, who was standing nearby, and called her into a stack. Then, they picked up the force stick that was nearby leaning up against another implement, and commander her to bite the force stick.
Selene had relatively moderate bite force for a creature in general, but a little on the higher side for a houluh. Her bite however, was perfectly scissor. Morgan grinned. "There we go, a-an excellent scissor bite of excellent force for a houluh. A-and look how she holds on!" The human did their best to shake the stick out of the houluh's mouth grip, but Selene refused to let go. Then, Morgan ordered her to sit, and she dropped the stick in order to do so. "Alrighty Folks! That's all for Selene today. Isn't that decent for a demo r-run?" At that, Morgan called the houluh to follow them, which she did with a motherly grace to her steps. They stepped out of the ring and Morgan let out a breath they hadn't known they were holding.
[Selene stacks on command, uses bite on command, and then sits on command, then she follows on command.] [Done.]

Admittedly, Gelert had little in relevant training for a strength salonne, and Nadia was nervous when she walked out into the ring with him. With no physical moves in his repertoire, she'd had to think of something a little alternative - perhaps not strength in the context of brute force, but in his build and agility.
"Hello, everyone," She greeted, polite but detached. It wasn't about her. This was all a learning experience, to give her houluh the preparation he needed to go on to become a champion. "This is my dear Gelert - Bloomwood's Llywelyn's Faithful. Though young, I believe he has plenty of potential. Allow me to show you."
A little podium had been set up for them, and with the command 'up!', Gelert jumped onto it. Nadia wasted no time in running her hands over his body, lifting his paws and tail, showing his build and his calmness while being handled.
"You can see that there is a lot of power in his frame. I find him to be an excellent runner, and he can leap extraordinarily high. Strength is about more than crushing force," She continued. "Off, Gelert."
Down he came, in time for the final trick. When she gave the command, he sprang high into the air for a leap; once, twice, three times, until she was satisfied his merits were displayed and they could leave to await judgement.
[Gelert performs Jump Up, displays Tolerance, performs Off, and then performs Leap.] [Done!]
Fiera was nearly late to the salonne! She had to rush just to get there at all, and when she arrived the show had already begun. As a result, the humanish wasn't... looking as good as she probably could have, if she was being honest. Still, she was going to show these people one healthy houluh if it was the last thing she ever did. "Hello, ladies and gents!" She said as she flounced on stage, with Opal hanging back behind her. "Are you ready for a fantastic act of showmanship?" She said with a wink, trying not to show how exhausted she was from the run here. "Well, may I present to you- Opalescent Wind! Breezy's absolute finest!" She said, and then snapped her fingers at Opal. "Opal, come!" She said, waving her pet over. Opal happily trotted over, sniffing the air happily. When he arrived, she gave him two more commands in quick succession.
(Opal responds to his Name and uses 'Come' on command.)

"Okay Opal, lay down and stay." She said, and the houluh immediately responded. "Look how obedient! Look how finely shaped! But ah, of course, that's not what you're here for today, now is it?" She said with a laugh. "You are here for strength! We can provide that." She said, and held up a large stick, one that she had, in fact, nabbed from a park on the way here. "Ready, Opal?" She said, holding it out to him. Quick as a flash, he leapt up and latched onto it. In half a second, it was in pieces on the floor. The audience murmured appreciatively, and Fiera happily dropped the rest of the stick and took a bow. "And that everyone, is what strength looks like. Thank you for your time!" She said with a laugh, waving to the audience as she trotted off, Opal in tow. Not her cleanest performance, but one that people seemed to like.
(Opal performs lay down, stay, and bite on command. Done!)
Jack: Not a problem, gratz!

Lethalia: Aww yee, love this hen. Thanks for all of the Ivaylo fights, Jack!
Apr 14, 2021 17:31:26 GMT -6
Silver: Hey guys I know some of the free breedings have been waiting longer than usual, just letting you know that I'm aware and I'm working on it! :3
Apr 14, 2021 5:58:00 GMT -6
Riku: I appreciate that.
Apr 12, 2021 18:44:24 GMT -6
Silver: Yea over time I realized that people either ignored or resented a lot of the lore anyway, so I've mostly just figured, eh, if you want to play, do what you want. I'd rather have you around than yell at you for your plot points.

Alma: If it helps, this version feels like it changed/removed a lot of the old fluff and is a great deal more free-form now. Could probably make up whatever to make your OC's reach the city and fit in somewhat so long as they aren't from something like Halo.
Apr 12, 2021 12:49:24 GMT -6
Yang: i feel like its a real challenge to bring in OC's when the Story-story of the labs is a big 'ol question mark; i get the idea/Sense of the labs' story; to make beasts that are Cool and Powerful, but beyond that its all '? ? ?' ; to me atleast :B
Apr 12, 2021 10:30:40 GMT -6
Kadin: Hah, same, I still haven't finished Kadin's intro back to the labs plot area thread even tho I've been back for months now
Apr 12, 2021 7:26:36 GMT -6
Silver: To be honest, I write most of my prologues much later, if ever haha.
Apr 11, 2021 21:52:35 GMT -6
Riku: A lot of my pets have prologues that need to be written still.....but I could technically write those later as flashbacks in the plot area.
Apr 11, 2021 21:06:34 GMT -6
Riku: I look forward to seeing stuff come about. Long-plans for six months to a year or two in the future are things I'm open to!
Apr 11, 2021 21:06:00 GMT -6
Riku: I love Alma's ideas for the boss fights. I'd really enjoy participating, but I just don't know if I'm currently qualified with my very little actual training experience and lack of muse lately...
Apr 11, 2021 21:05:30 GMT -6
Kadin: ... Heck, I should train up SEVERAL teams of gallor, lol
Apr 11, 2021 20:07:31 GMT -6
Kadin: I'd like to train a group of vulti or other pets up in the future, but I'll probs run the fights with my currently trained pets, too, until those others are trained up
Apr 11, 2021 20:07:09 GMT -6
Noa: I doubt anyone is gonna want to tag team with me anyhow XD
Apr 11, 2021 0:13:25 GMT -6
Noa: I'll probably be solo-ing the Pit ones, at least... Mostly because I'm not as interested in the points as I am in gaining levels on specific pets. And since my PLs are so high, I'd bring down the point earnings, so
Apr 11, 2021 0:13:16 GMT -6
Riku: Maybe that can be one of the 'bosses'. Like a group of Vulti.
Apr 10, 2021 19:49:54 GMT -6
Jack: Yeah I really liked the idea.
Apr 10, 2021 19:12:13 GMT -6
Alma: I really like the idea of pack instincts coming into play with a pack of beasts that can be seen as thematically linked to a boss. XD
Apr 10, 2021 19:08:50 GMT -6
Alma: I figure most players will want to solo through a few fights with their stronger pets first, if for no other reason than to make the fights go faster, but I'll probably ask around for that sort of team again later.
