Western Isles - Skill System 23/08/14: Master level fawnlings now need a quick check of their stats before they can officially level up from Advanced! Check below for the Master formWestern Isles - Skill System2 years ago in Personal More Like This
07/05/14: Additions galore! We've added new sections on Divine Blessings and Born Adept Babies! We've also added in the system we use to calculate babies' inherent magic FYI. See below!
06/05/14: We've tweaked the age brackets down for advanced and master level skills. Fawnlings can now achieve advanced level at 10 (the start of their prime), and master level at 15 (the peak of their prime). Enjoy!
Skills are a numerical representation of your characters physical, mental and spiritual capabilities. While they are technically optional, if you intend on participating in fights, mastering your Fawnlings’ magical capabilities, or improving your knowledge of various herbs, you will need to know how these skills work.
Sorry for the ridiculously dry writing, but we’ve tried t

So I've decided that I want to create a huge group collab Chirstmas Picture featuring your Fawnlings!
Draw your Fawnling! (2500X2500 pixels at the max and on a transparent PNG background. If you do traditional with no way of getting rid of your background don't hesitate to ask! Also color your own piece please XD)
Shading is optional!
Christmasy accessories are allowed!
Please only side, front or rear view pics. Don't do something looking down or looking up (like on the ground looking up at your fawnling or flying overhead and looking down on them. Draw it like you're stand on there same ground as them.)
Once you've done that upload it to Sta.sh and send me a note with a link to it and to their reference! That's all you have to do! Please have all entries in by December 22nd!

Since the days of Lore, the five prongs of the Western Kingdoms have been at war. Mountains cannot part them, nor mile nor land nor sea, and nor can the spray from the waves cool their fury of a long forgotten wrong. Destined to forever clash and lock horns, friendships are broken and enemies made as each facet struggles for power. Welcome to the Western Isles.
It takes at least 2 seasons (6 months) to get from one end of the Isles to the other (Silverthorne to Windborne) on the most direct route, if the fawnling in question is traveling at pace and is not interrupted.
It takes at least several weeks to get through especially mountainous regions, like the borders of Blackwood into Glenmore or Silverthorne.
Travel between Kingdoms is not a short walk, and is often hazardous. All Kingdoms besides your own are hostile to one another, and generally mean that when trave

It's a rough set up, and some combinations wouldn't make sense at all, but... maybe it bring you a good story? If you like to help to improve this, please, feel free to comment!
How does it work?
If you are familiar with the horse personality randomizer that Dane made together with some other DA'ers, then it's kinda in the same direction. You will see a couple of lists that together will make a guideline to draw something. Some combination absolutely do not make sense, but just click the random button again to make a better option.

Tips on how to win

- Read the Windborne and Oakfern herd journals
- Have a look at bids that have won other auctions if y
Western Isles - Magic & Herbs 07/05/14: Rae's written some more detail on the concept of "magic neutral", and the theory behind it. There's also an expanded section on underage magic, and clarification on crossbreeding with light magic, and the definitions of "magic dud" and "talentless" fawnlings (see below).Western Isles - Magic & Herbs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To see how to improve magic skill level, see the skills journal.
Herb lore is a respectable skill branch that can be practiced by any of the fawnlings on the Isles. Its practice is highly regarded within herds - everyone needs a healer - and they often represent a very important aspect of herd life. Regardless of magical or fighting ability, any fawnling may master herb lore, though there certainly is an inborn knack to it.
For more information on how to improve the Herb Skill, see the Skills Journal.
We’ve concocted a list of herbs and plants found around The Western Isles, see the

(please just no stealing. I'll hunt you down and stab you with a rusty spork )
Just because a horse is listed here DOES NOT MEAN the horse is open for breeding. ThatDenver has asked me to make a special mention that her horses are NOT open for breeding offers so do not ask. This list is only for personal reference for nordanner breeders and is NOT a list for you to go hit up the starters.
If this list is outdated in any fashion PLEASE let me know! I'd love to update it.
Old starters are in normal font
Group starters are italicized

What is your show about?
First you have to decide what horses and disciplines you want to be featured in this show. Check and make sure there aren't a bunch of shows already being hosted in these areas, as people may not have time to enter both and will probably go with the one they saw first. The more specific your show is, the more unique it will be, but be sure it is not so specific that no one is qualified to enter. Common ones may be:
Experience related ("Championship Show", "Rookie Show")Breed or Type Related ("Arabian Show", "Halloween-Colored Horses Show", "Pony Show")
Discipline related ("Gaited Show", "Medieval Show")
Many really interesting shows ha
