VETRNÆTR


A Drakehest Halloween!
:new: WINNERS ANNOUNCED :new:


See Sections



It is that time of the year again! As the winds grow colder and the leaves start to fall, it is obvious that fall has come to Vanaheim. All sorts of interesting things are happening around these parts. Everyone is preparing for the upcoming festivities. What's the worst that could happen?

Drakes do not have to registered to partake. As long as import image has been posted you are good to go!



• WHODUNIT?•


Darkness falls across the land, you hear shouts from the town and a horse thunders past you, celebrating its release! 
Wasn’t that… a Vanaheim horse? Quick! Chase it down, but… how did it get loose in the first place?

Depict your Drake and their handler completing the following challenges:

  • Challenge 1: Draw or write your horse and handler chasing down a rogue group horse!
  • Challenge 2: Draw or write your horse and handler finding strange animal prints!
  • Challenge 3: Draw or write your horse and handler following the tracks into the forest - wow, it certainly leaves behind lots of shiny things!

The goal is to find out who the unknown culprit is. All entries will be rolled for clues!(loot). You are welcome to do more additional entries, so long as these main images are finished. Limit 10 entries per person. Every roll has the potential to give you a bit more information about the mystery creature!
What group horse(s) you choose to use are up to you! All of the group horses can be found here.

VETERNAETR 2016: Through the woods by Angellsview  
Bifrorest by NorthEast-Stables follow the blood by NouveauStables 



WHODUNIT? - PRIZES:



The mysterious tracks have lead you into a forest clearing. Two bundles of fur tumble in the distance. Moonlight glints off of something metalic: coin.. By the time it dawns on you that you are staring at two unattended bear cubs, it's too late. A shadow falls over you. Turning slowly, you can only stare as a shaggy mass of brown fur rises behind you. You've found the culprit. It's a bear. A big one.
Shop Item: Bear by DrakehestCouncil
