RoK - Dun dun dunThe final rite was upon them. The small group just had to complete the rite of Knowledge and then their Arms of Akna would be complete for another three Tokotas, a necessary ordeal for anyone wishing to breed their Tokotas. Despite their usually competitive nature, Liam and Mana weren't particularly fond of the rites of fertility, not in the same way as other shows. After all, there was less variety in it, and the groups that participated together were quite small. Still, it needed to be done, it was almost a rite of passage for Tokotas, and a symbol to other handlers on what you could do as a handler. So although they were all a little tired from the ordeal that had been their rite of fortitude several days prior, the three handlers woke themselves up nice and early for their final test.RoK - Dun dun dun by Pix-san
Also a little tired from their rite of fortitude, the three Tokotas were more than happy to stand still while their handlers groomed and tacked them up. Not that these three were usually much of an is
One for the road“Why don't you come with us on a hunt today? If we're heading in the direction that you're going anyway then you might as well? Plus then you'll have more to take back with you.” Liam smirked, giving the anthropomorphic feline handler a friendly pat on the back. The action seemed to make the other handler jump a little as he hadn't been expecting it, but he smiled back despite his embarrassment.One for the road by Pix-san
“You make a good point...” He was still thinking it over, but he knew he was likely to agree with the other.
“Of course he does, he's good at that.”
The other voice caught him off guard, making him jump once again. Twice in as many seconds, how embarrassing. But neither seemed surprised. Had he even heard her approaching? Not really... She was absolutely silent.
The three had enjoyed their short time together, chatting away over the fire in the middle of the tribe camp grounds until late, or at least until they had all decided to go to sleep. But life has to
Sheep killersThere was a brief moment of confusion for all at the small camp when they first awoke. Liam and Mana woke first, the pair's memory impaired by sleep for the smallest of moments until it all came back. They were still heading to the farm, but they had gotten a little side tracked by finding out that someone had almost drowned in a lake, with them needing to save their hide. Mana glanced over her shoulder at the still sleeping form, wrapped up in blankets, but significantly warmer than he had been now that his barbary maned Tokota rested by his side. This left the three half manes a little more chilly with only one side covered by a furry Tokota in the form of Jeta, but Umbriel tried to do her best to keep them warm with her thicker fur on the other side to replace the barbary. She was capable of being nice, she just didn't enjoy it very much so it was rare. Still, the sight brought a smile to Mana's face, and she reminded herself to give the black van gogh a treat later because of the uSheep killers by Pix-san
RoF - Prepared for anythingTo an outside it would seem almost impossible that the group woke up even earlier than usual, but there was too much to be done to wait for the sun to surface. Tack had to be checked, packs had to be prepared, Tokotas had to be prepared. This rite was always a bit of an irritating one. They had five days to move through the wilderness, following markers named Inukshuk landmarks until they reached their final destination.RoF - Prepared for anything by Pix-san
It was a fairly simple task really... Just get from one place to another along a certain trail. But it was time consuming, with a lot of empty space that was usually filled with chatting between handlers. Of course it was rare that Mana openly admitted to wanting anything to do with Damien, but on this matter they at least shared similar ideas. Sure the pair would talk, but it would be more meaningful, when necessary rather than just to kill time. So there was at least one good thing about him.
Mana and Umbriel were the first to be ready to go. The black van gogh fully
Avalanche :: RoF Collab“Dirslen! Get over here!” The wolf eared Pompeii shook his head as the merle bolted from his side, sending snow in every direction that his paws made impact in. The pied dun barked and whimpered, his tail wagging at speeds that should be inconceivable for a Tokota of his size, but there he was, yipping and prancing in the snow as his own shadow chased after him. The other two handlers, a feilitaur by the name of Calcifer, and a redheaded male named Mike, chuckled under their breath. Almost instantly, the other two Tokotas gave chase, only making the merle run and bounce even more so than before. Calcifer could make out the brown wolve’s pelt against the snow easily, but the curly maned female was a little more difficult as her piebald’s and grey pelt blended slightly.
Together, they made their way into the tent as their names were called, Pompeii giving the yipping Dirslen a small eye roll before vanishing into the confines of the tent. Here, they would receive
The Collective :: RoM CollabThe bleating of sheep and the deep baying of cows could be heard as the sun peaked over the mountain top, and at the base of the great natural structure, a camp stood, full of bustle and movement in the coming daylight. Here, at the TCA camp, handlers and owners alike would pit their beloved mounts against tasks that would show their prowess in the breed standards, as well as give them a taste of the competitive side of life. Now, in the rising sun, they were beginning the preparations for the day, with Tokotas being brushed and pampered, some receiving quick once overs and others gaining small braids and flashy equipment. For some, this was their first journey down these Rites, the panic and fear quite noticeable in their eyes even from a distance. However, for three of them, the tribemates that now stood around the warm-up shed exchanging past stories and other joyous experiences, this would simply be another day with their beloved Tokotas, and just another task that they could add t
Friendly Competition- RoM The air was cool, and the ice was thick beneath their paws. Eyes of many colors flashed about, casting glances at one another. Whether friendly, harsh, or of some other unknown feeling, one thing was clear between the beasts: Today marked the beginning of a journey they would endure together. The day before, each of the three had received extensive veterinary testing, and now, as their handler, Astoria Sakari, awaited instructions from the safety and comfort of the TCA tent, the three males fidgeted and awaited her return. Around the fire that blazed outside the building, the three sat together, eyes flashing in the flames as they took in each other’s presences. The first to stand out in the flicking flames and the rising sun was the blue eyed black, his natural mane casting a noticeable contrast against the stark snow. Blue hand paints decorated his night like fur, bringing out his eyes. He huffed slightly, his gaze shifting to the Yeti maned male that sat near him. The tok
What are you doing?The group of handlers were getting their Tokotas ready so that they could head out and do some more exploring. Aidan and Damien wanted to head out and try to find a cave and look through it for anything interesting. Lea had decided to take Alawa once again and Jonah was taking Rome once more since the two Tokotas got along very well. Aidan had Monet, the grumpy female wasn’t too keen on going with them again but Aidan finally convinced her to wake up so they could go explore. Delsin wanted Damien to ride Raven again while he rode Raugmar. Even though Damien didn’t want to do it Delsin somehow got him to agree.
They were also being joined by a couple other Tokotas and another handler. Cain had seen them getting ready and headed over with his black half mane Diaval, or who he called Crow. Also joining the group was a tundra Tokota named Elgan and a sand roan named Nyla.
As soon as Cain appeared Damien groaned and set his head on Raven’s neck to bury his face in his fur.
