Buying this creature may not have been a good idea. The Chiryma was larger than herself, and could be useful as a mount in the future. Maybe very far in the future. The bird was angry, and the sharp talons it possessed made it a target she did not want to be close to. A sharp spur on the back of its legs could do some aggravating damage, and its sharp beak wasn't something to mess around with. It was flightless, but boy could he run. Amelia had bought him from a man who was clearing out his kennel. To the best of her knowledge the offspring had not spent much time with people, and had grown basically without human touch. It was a creature that spent most of its time in a kennel, and she could tell by its behaviour that she had her work cut out for her. She had bought a muzzle and a strong lead to bring the large bird to the open park. Thankfully it was fenced in, but it was a very large open field. She tied the lead to a large tree and put her bag down beside it. The snow leopard was strong, but easily overpowered by such a beast.
The tawny feather hissed and snapped its beak at her, and she took a step back. The muzzle should be able to hold? The mammalian shuffled in her spot, wondering what her day was going to turn out to be like.
The bird could blend into a forest or grasslands quite easily, and she liked the colours compared to her own when buying the creature. Was it a good idea? Probably not. Was it driven by impulse from her mania? Absolutely. She snapped back at the bird, stepped back and raised the fur on the back of her neck. Her humanoid characteristics made her lose a lot of strength she could have, and she wouldn't be a threat to the bird. But, she wasn't sure if the Chiryma knew that. The Chiryma turn his head away from the mammalian, and began to scratch at the ground, searching for some bugs. Amelia calmed down and began to look through the bag she had brought to see if there was any training tools that would be useful. She brought a lot of different things, but she worried that this bird would need something more than just treats and 'good boy's. A loud snap and crack and the snow leopard turned in an instant. The lead lay on the ground, the muzzle snapped in half. Oh good. The Chiryma had broke through it very quickly, and was now on the run across the park. The bird moved fast, long legs propelling it across the plain with ease. It covered far distances without even touching the ground, and the speed in which it moved away frightened the mammalian. Even with a fenced in park, the bird had a lot of space to go.
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.

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'.)

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
