Salonnes were going rather well so far, and she couldn't wait to see what might happen now. "A Strength Salonne! This is a Strength Salonne we're starting, so bring your strongest Houluh and we'll see who comes out on top!" Shayna announced with a broad smile.

It wasn't as though she thought to enter a salonne with such an unmannered houluh, especially how different of caliber they felt than other shows. How much could an unknown kennel's name be tarnished by bringing in an unruly, borderline neurotic dog to a show?
They'd have to find out! It wasn't a matter of showing off this time, but more that Gold needed to get out and do something novel. She was downright destructive when she was bored, and lately, she'd been bored. Exposure to crowds and activity couldn't ever be a bad thing, especially when Gold seemed bothered by so little.
Though the houluh had been groomed to gleaming just before leaving to ensure she didn't have time to muss it up in the pasture, Gold still took it upon herself to give herself a last 'sprinkling' of the dirt road. The red dirt dulled and stood out on her shining blue-black coat, and Lethalia was still trying to brush the last of it out just outside of the show hall. With all of the attention, God was happy to oblige with a happily thumping tail and a nose to the air to take in all the activity. This smelled a lot like other houluh; awesome!

Aubrey didn't really expect to find himself at another Houluh Salonne so soon, but Loki had gotten restless right around the time that news first began circulating about it, and Aubrey had taught him a couple of fighting moves in hopes that it would work off his excess energy... And then it had been a matter of, why not? It wasn't like there was a fee to register.
Aubrey might have felt out of place, but Loki walked into the building like he owned it, paying no one any mind and stopping at the sign-up desk with a decidedly businesslike mien. Aubrey smiled a little awkwardly at the staff and fumbled his way through yet more paperwork; there was, he was learning, a lot of paperwork involved when it came to Houluh.
But, well, if Loki thought it would go well, then maybe it would. Lyra had done alright, hadn't she?

So another Salonne was going, right? Well, might as well enter one of her Houluh again, if only for the point needed to get more stuff from the Contest Hall. Jack chuckled a little to herself as she walked with Snow to the Contest Hall, wondering if they would even place. She hadn't placed with Arvest the Salonne before, but that was alright, she really hadn't expected to anyway, she was just happy he'd gotten a little experience from the whole thing. As they entered the Hall, she filled out the form and handed it over before standing with the rest of the people who had entered, wondering what they were up against. A Strength Salonne... it would be interesting, and she knew that Snow was rather aggressive for a Houluh, so maybe he had a shot, she really didn't know at this point. Whatever, this would be fine in the long run, she knew, as she rested a hand on Snow's head.

Well, there was another salone going on and, with all of the houluh he'd trained already, Kadin couldn't think of a good reason not to enter this one, too. What's more, the salonne seemed to be able to strength and he had one houluh in particular that had been trained in just that! So Kadin headed over to the contest hall, finding the desk for registering his pets easier each time he showed up. He quickly filled out the forms and handed them over, Cookie impatient where she was waiting for him. He'd won the last salonne he'd entered, but that didn't necessarily mean that he'd win this one, too. Still, it wouldn't hurt to only enter. He handed over the forms with a nod and headed out, ready to wait and see what the actual day of would bring. Would he win again? Unlikely. But it wouldn't hurt to try to place, at least.
Nadia hadn't been back to the contest hall for a while, on account of her previous failings. It had been nothing catastrophic - they hadn't been thrown out or disqualified, god forbid - but life had gotten in the way, and she had missed the show ring of her last salonne. This time, she was adamant that no such thing would happen. Indie had been groomed extensively that morning in preparation, with a sweet-smelling shampoo giving her fur a glossy shine, and was quite tired of seeing Nadia's comb. Even so, it descended on her once again. It may be a strength salonne, but it was no excuse to not look their best!
She offered a soft greeting to the staff and set about signing them up, well accustomed to the hall's paperwork. It looked like there were plenty of other participants! The thought was exciting, but nervewracking, because there were more unfamiliar faces than not.
Riku: I appreciate that.

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.
Apr 10, 2021 19:07:49 GMT -6
Jack: I'm thinking of throwing a couple of Sarane at the Wiurn, but I'm liking your ideas you posted! I'm totally game for it, to be honest.
Apr 10, 2021 16:47:58 GMT -6
Alma: Anyone have any plans for their teams?
Apr 10, 2021 16:41:06 GMT -6
Alma: The boss system looks pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing more fights in it.
