Thanks to Fiera Ferella for remaking the files, they look amazing and there's a few surprises in this species now!
A few things have changed to the system, and here are some highlights: - Sarane have permanent dominance - Only 1 dominance breeding is allowed per season, unless you're the winner of the tournament, in which case you have 2 breedings that season - The Gauntlet now has NPC Drakes to fight if you can't find anyone else to fight. In order to gain dominance, you must fight a Drake at least 1 Tier above yours, in the case of T3 Drakes and Hens, you will be fighting a T3. Sarane no longer have to fight in a tournament to become dominant. - Inbreeding is allowed! As long as they are at least 3 generations removed, they can be bred together - There will be roughly 2 Drake Tournaments and 1 Hen Tournament per year. Drakes cannot enter Hen tournaments, but Hens can enter Drake tournaments - Paid breedings are making a comeback! A few conditions apply, and this feature is not ready yet. However, offspring will always be T1, and the Sarane being bred are required to have 15 TP worth of training before being bred. - Be on the look out for quests and hidden eggs! Each new batch of eggs will be announced, and you can only claim one egg in each batch. - Eggs are being sold in the Contest Hall and Fighting Pit! They have a 6 month buying cooldown.
Any currently dominant Sarane can be bred for free once in order to make up for their infertility, please have your orders in to Jack before June 1 in order to receive your offspring. There will be an order form up soon.
We hope you enjoy this update as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!

Quick update to questing. Starting next month (June), each post you make while roleplaying your quest should be numbered! Questing is still intended to be a storytelling adventure, but numbering your posts really helps the mods figure out where they last left off in reading your story. The rule doesn't apply to the current May quest.
Thank you all, and good luck on your questing adventures!
All items have been saved, uploaded, and entered into where they are put, this marks the total end to needing new items, please say thank you when you see Darky! I know I've said it. It was a lot of work, but she did a great job, and I know I'm grateful for the help.

Sorry for the influx of updates today, but this one requires a post of it's own.
Hidden Crossroads is now a Mature Rating site!
Per the rules of the site:
3. Mature Rating This site began as a PG-13 rating, but has evolved into a more mature area. This means anything goes, sex, violence, mature content, and anything else that can be thought of under this label. Please remember to put a tag in your thread name ( (S) (V) (M) and so on), along with a warning in your first post of the thread as to what people may expect in your writing. HOWEVER, training is still under the PG-13 rule, as it still needs to be read by the staff. If someone asks you to stop something, or if they don't wish to allow it in one of their threads, please be mindful, and please be polite. If this cannot be handled maturely, it will be reduced to PG-13 once more.
Please follow the rules at all times and be mindful of what other people are asking for in their roleplays. If this becomes an issue, the Mature Rating will be taken back to PG-13.

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.
Jul 11, 2020 6:36:02 GMT -6
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
