Races

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 24, 2015, 2:05 AM

Racing has been a highly competitive and beloved sport of Stryx owners since the very beginning, and has a long history of Champion bloodlines! Perhaps your Stryx might even become a famous competitor!


Each time your Stryx trains or competes, it will gain Vigor, and eventually rise in the ranks!

Stryx must have completed Basic Training.
If your Stryx is blind they must receive Blindness Training before they can compete!

Dead Man's Gorge

Gorge-diu by EyeOfGalyx
This gorge has been carved out over millenia by the strong current of a long, winding river, but the gorge itself is almost unnaturally narrow. Racers on foot must worry about the river itself, and be sure not to place a foot into waters too deep to tread, or to slip on the smooth rocks. Those in the air have precious little space to spread their wings. But that isn't the only danger in Dead Man's Gorge. The true peril is in how sharply the river curves into different directions, and the most collisions occur at these narrow areas, both on the ground and in the air. This course is not for the faint of heart.

Crying Caverns

Cavern-Crept by EyeOfGalyx
A deep and intricate cave system, fed by a large stream whose waterfall from above-ground provides an underground lake and various pools where tiny fish and other creatures thrive. The roof is always dripping with water and condensation, hence its name. But the slippery surfaces are just one peril in the cavern. Long, sharp stalactites and stalagmites jut from the ceiling and floor like countless teeth within an endless maw. Those who race here must be sure-footed and sharp of eye, for whether on foot or on the wing, there is no shortage of obstacles to navigate in the Crying Caverns.
---------------------------------

Depict your Stryx + a competitor Stryx navigating the dangerous and massive stalactites and stalagmites of the cavern, as well as the perilous darkness!

Sea Talons

Claws-diurnal by EyeOfGalyx
Ancient myth says that these talons of stone jutting from the sea belonged to one of the firstborn Titans of Wyvera, struck down by his brother in the fight for dominion over the sea. In more modern times, they provide the perfect maze of obstacles for aerial racers. This is considered one of the safer racing locations, but even then Stryx must be wary of flying too close to the surface of the water. Sharks and other carnivorous sea creatures lurk beneath the surface, eager to snatch a reckless Stryx's foot or wing and drag it below the murky depths.
---------------------------------

Requirements:
Depict your Stryx + a competitor Stryx, flying through and between the rock arch formations on the borders of the sea where they meet the mountains.
