As she walks down the path with her less-than-thrilled pet she glances around, looking at all the trainers nervously as she hesitantly goes into the small pen, hoping it would work best for what she had in mind. She takes off the harness as he quickly bolted to the opposite end of the pen, visibly annoyed at his being drug all the way out here and equally defensive considering he had no knowledge of his new owner's intentions. Vixen slowly held her hands out to the sides, tossing the harness away as she moved slowly so not to spook him. He laid his ears back and bared his teeth defensively as he noticed her ears did not move like the others, instead they stayed relatively motionless as she slowly inched closer. Vixen slowly pulled a piece of raw meat from her bag tossing it in front of him as he sniffed the ground before hesitantly stepping forward and eating it. She smiled and backed off to the other side of the pen as she held high hopes of further improvement of earning his trust.

As the day went on, Vixen attempted multiple times to coax the old Vulticus closer, even whistling a few times as she did so. In her downtime she pondered as to how she could train the Vulticus, seeing as how she is deaf she obviouly had a bit of a set back when it came to training, but that didnt stop her from trying her best. After sitting and pondering for what seemed like ages, she finally decided that she was going to make a sign for his name. After a short time pondering she stood again and walked slowly in his direction, signing "E" and tapping her hand against her temple as she held out a piece of meat for him. "Here, Evan." Though her voice was slightly raspy due to her not talking often he stood his ground, determined not to move. She sighed and tossed him the meat as she slowly knelt down watching him as she patiently waited for his stubbornness to falter

After attempting a few more times to coax the Vulticus she sighed and sat in the center of the pen with a piece of meat in one hand as she signed with the other, again tapping the sign for 'E' against her temple "Come here, Evan." He faltered for a moment before slowly stepping slightly closer, still hesitant as she sat almost motionless holding out the meat to him. She sighed again and sat the meat about a foot in front of her before sitting up with her hands in her lap watching him carefully. He looked at her with little interest before carefully walking over and sitting in front of the meat, carefully eating it as she smiled, swaying her own tail happily as she watched him. He finished his meat and sat watching her as she swayed her own tail and he turned his head to the side slightly in curiosity at his strange new owner.
Fiera Ferella: I picked mine because ive always wanted to write an amphadron tbh. :0 I'm eager to see how it'll turn out!

Riku: Oh, I see what you mean now, Nerius. Dang...that’s a good point. How do we get around it? Naturally we will look at the opponent’s stats - which can’t be done IC. Hm.
Jul 11, 2020 14:30:04 GMT -6
Èdan: Not necessarily, there's stuff that can affect a foe's aim in the same turn
Jul 11, 2020 8:51:23 GMT -6
Nerius: The lack of suspense. I slogged through them all for the points, but it got super tedious to write. (This isn't specific to mosca, just a general 'why I'm eh on this tourny'.)
Jul 11, 2020 6:40:13 GMT -6
Nerius: And it's not about "winning", rather I was referring to the disaster that was my attempt at the petite tournament. And how one glance at the stats made me go 'yep, gonna loose this one', and be proven right in every single round. It's not the loss, but..
Jul 11, 2020 6:39:31 GMT -6
Nerius: Yes, the dreaded auto-hit or auto-miss can strike at any time, but what I mean is the only way a mosca is loosing is if there's a un/lucky dice roll.

Èdan: Don't forget there's moves and abilities that halve dex or affect the opponent's aim. Not to mention, never underestimate the cruelty of a natural 1
Jul 11, 2020 6:16:47 GMT -6
Riku: High dex can miss. I had an unbroken brown who won like three fights by sheer luck of the enemy missing over and over. Lol Besides, not to be cliche, but...it’s not all about winning. You can come in second place and still get 23 pit points.

Jack: Don't forget to PM me your intent if you're entering! I need to know before training!
Jul 10, 2020 17:29:29 GMT -6
Fanged: I'll be going with a huntress mosca build I have in mind.
Jul 10, 2020 17:12:28 GMT -6
Xentus: I'm the one who's entering fully intending to utilize the 9 dex flighty mosca. Curious to find what might beat it
Jul 10, 2020 17:07:55 GMT -6
Flare: In opinion, I have a kakum baakir set aside for Flare's usage, but I've never worked with it. It'll be a new species to work with. Just because soemone enters a 9 dex creature doesn't 100% mean they'll win.
Jul 10, 2020 17:04:42 GMT -6
Nerius: Would use one myself, but I don't want to waste a re-growth on something I'll never do anything with outside this tournament, especially since there's no guarantee there will be enough people for it to run.
Jul 10, 2020 15:53:52 GMT -6
Nerius: I was looking at the stats of the creatures that could be entered, when it was first announced. Someone enters a flighty mosca? They're going to win. There's nothing that can move faster, and nothing that can survive a hit from wing buff while in flight
Jul 10, 2020 15:52:37 GMT -6
Nerius: I've considered it, as I do want the pit points, but I dunno. My last attempt at tournament rush training uh, did not go well *coughwhiptailcough*. Plus I suspect someone's going to enter a mosca and basically auto-win.
Jul 10, 2020 15:49:29 GMT -6
Riku: Hopefully more people do. Counting myself, I think there’s only 4 right now. 🤔
Jul 9, 2020 17:21:27 GMT -6
Flare: I'm gonna enter
