It had been a while since they had entered a Sarane tournament! Ashe couldn't be one hundred percent sure that he hadn't simply missed an announcement somewhere along the way, but he had caught this one. If he wasn't mistaken, this might be the first hen tournament to take place, even. That was exciting! He knew a couple of hens from back in the day that tried to play with the big boys and it didn't quite work out in their favor, but they had been impressive nonetheless. He wondered where they were now and if he would see either of them in this tournament. One of them had been a purple, if he recalled correctly, and the other.... a brown?
With him today were two companions; inyala, on his shoulder; since this was a real battle and not a fodder drake to get chewed up, she had agreed to join him. And Rapture, daughter of Fafnir, his best trained hen. She might not be the flashiest, but she might be able to hold her own for a while!
The hen was much more calm than any of his other Sarane, Fafnir included. She walked alongside him and, when he opened the door to the pit and ushered her through, she walked inside without a fuss. This left Ashe time to go find his place in the stands.
Name of Owner: Kadin Name of Pet: Chiara Species and Breed of Pet: Red Hen Offspring Sarane Level: 36 [0/5] Loyalty to Owner: 28 [0/5] Stats: Stamina: 6 Strength: 5 Resistance: 4 Dexterity: 4 + 1 = 5 Mentality: 2 Any natural boost to stats: +1 dex via bracelet Special Abilities: Desert Dwelling, Glide (not on command), Thorny Body, Fire Resistance, Cold Resistance, Danger Sense (10), Hardy (5), Intimidation (7) Moves Taught: Breathe Fire (7), Rend (3), Roar (3) Abilities Used on Command: n/a Tricks Taught: Name (1) Creature Carries Ribbon?

So, this was a new one for Kadin. He was using to coming to the pit for breakings by now. He was also used to coming to the pit to let his sarane get their kicks beating up brown drakes. But this was a tournament. He'd sort of expected both more and less, er. Pomp and circumstance? Than he was witnessing right now. Sure, the letters and communications had been very official. Telling him to come here at a certain time on a certain day was very official. But once he got there, it was just. Different than he'd expected.
People really came to watch a bunch of pets try to beat each other to death, huh?
Kadin led Chiara to the tunnels that would take her out into the pit. He pat her side, confident in her just so long as she didn't get too overconfident. Again. With a snort, she nipped at his arm and trotted off down the tunnels, excited to get her battle started. It had been too long since her last one! Kadin, meanwhile, went to take his place in the stands, an interesting mixture of nerves and confidence swirling in his gut.
Kadin looked down at the arena, frowning when he saw that there was already a black in the sands. She was gorgeous, too, but of course Kadin was a bit bias in thinking that Chiara was better. The red hen emerged from the tunnels, eyes alight. She growled at the black, flicking her tail threateningly. Kadin had to hold back a laugh. She was putting on a show, but he could see that underneath it all she was excited. She'd finally get to fight something that wasn't a damned brown drake.
"Hey, Chiara." Kadin called out. "Rend!" With a growl of delight, Chiara leapt forward, pleased to be utilizing her training in the pit. She charged at the black, confident in herself, but partly hoping for a bit more of a challenge than the damned browns had always been. She was so damn bored of fighting brown drakes. It was a breath of fresh air to be able to battle another strong looking hen.
Ashe watched the red hen enter the arena, led by a guy who.... did he look familiar? It could have been one of those faces he'd seen in a crowd before, because he didnt know a name to go with this man. Ashe was everywhere in this city, he wouldn't be surprised if he'd seen him in passing.
His hen was nothing special, he noted, as he and Inyala looked her over. She looked like a pure red, but she had bigger wings like Rapture did. A purebred offspring, then. And the tail. He'd always admired the red sarane's trademark throws. It had taken a while for him to get one of his own. Clubs and rudders ran in his bloodlines. Inyala was making soft sounds that Ashr took as worry for the black hen.
Down below, Rapture snarled back at the red hen, thumping her tail on the ground of the pit, spraying sand this way and that way as the club tail rolled. The only thing she was focused on was this hen, the enemy, and she almost missed Ashe calling out the command. But she heard the word, which sliced through her mind like a blade, and she reacted quickly. She didn't have time to register that the red, too, was making a move. She just had to be faster! She opened her mouth and fire spewed forth.
Rapture uses Breathe Fire! Chiara's Danger Sense activates, Rapture misses her attack!
Chiara uses Rend! Chiara's Dexterity of 5 + 9 rolled by staff = 14 vs. the 5 Dexterity of Rapture Chiara will deal the most damage possible! Chiara's Strength of 5 + 6 damage of Rend = 11 damage 11 - 4 Resistance of Rapture = 7 Rapture's Stamina is now -1
Though she tried to hit, the Black Hen goes down quickly. The pit crew rush out to tend to the Hen.
Jack: Not a problem, gratz!

Lethalia: Aww yee, love this hen. Thanks for all of the Ivaylo fights, Jack!

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.
