Get back here brother bear! by LamLArts

Hunting is one of the 4 main loot-earning activities - known as "Activity Rolls" (ARs) - in the game, where your Kukuri can hunt for pelts, skulls, bones, and other hunting-related in-game items. You can later sell these findings, or use them in crafting!

What can I do with my activity loot? Let's find out!

Firstly, all members are required to make an Activity Tracker; this is similar to a Fate Point Tracker, with four comments dedicated to the four lootable group activities; Hunting, Gathering, Excavating, and Traveling. You can find an example of an activity tracker here.

Hunting is simple; the aim of the activity is to depict your kukuri hunting an animal suitable for the time of year, either through art or literature. your Kukuri can't hunt multiple different species in one entry

While biorhythm doesnt play a major part in hunting, Diets do. The diet of your kukuri can help or hurt their odds; a carnivore will take to hunting quicker then a herbivore afterall

The animals available for your kukuri to hunt can be found anywhere, but hunting them in their natural habitat yields better results. Similarly, whilst animals can be hunted all year round, hunting them when they're in season gives you bonuses in gaining rewards.

Be careful when hunting large animals! Whilst large animals can be hunted by a single kukuri, the hunt will suffer and there will be penalties in the rewards. Two or more kukuri hunting a large will be much more successful, bringing home the full reward bonus. Miniatures will always suffer penalties when hunting large animals, even when hunting in group.

As with all activities, you can succeed or fail to find anything in Hunting. There is nothing in the entry that you can do to increase your chances, but FamiliarsTraits, Arisen Rank and Keen Sense Potions can be used to aid in your quest. These should all be listed in the provided form!


° One image/story can feature up to 3 kukuri hunting. You can include more if you wish, but only 3 will be rewarded items and the activity bonus - Extra kukuri will not earn this FP bonus.
° Completed hunting entries are posted in the Hunting folder. One image/story is one hunting trip; you cannot incorporate other activities into the same entry. Similarly, comic pages are judged as one hunting trip if posted as a single page image.
° Hunting is about hunting an animal. It's a perfect excuse to practice the action shots you've always been a little nervous to try, but you can also show the stalking of the prey or aftermath of the hunt. You're welcome to portray violence, gore or bloodiness, but you are not required to if it makes you feel uncomfortable or if you simply don't want to. However if you do, please respect deviantART's ToS and mark the entry as explicit.
° We give a list of permitted animals that can be hunted, these animals can be fantastical versions of themselves, such as magical bears or plant based deer, However, they CANNOT be other aprg creatures due to the nature of this activity and its award.
° Always link the imports of kukuri depicted in description! Failing to do so will result in a rejected roll.


1. At least 75% of the Kukuri must be visible and in the scene

2. At least 40% of the prey must be visible.

3. The image must be fairly clean, colored, shaded, and have a shaded background. Backgrounds should have at least 3 hand drawn elements not including the ground or sky (ex: rocks, vines, animals, etc)

4. The image must be at minimum 300x300 pixels, with each kukuri at least 150 x 150 pixels or easily recognizable.

5.  The image shouldn't be a noticeably lower quality compared to your gallery.


1. The story must be at least 1000 words

2. Every additional hunting kukuri requires an additional +500 words, meaning two kukuri would require 1500 words, and three kukuri 2000 words.

3. Kukuri should be 75% present through the whole story

4. Stories should be 75% about the activity.

Where Do I Post it

For hunting entries, the following form is required. Fill it in and submit it in the correct threads linked below

Link to submission:
Link to AR tracker (s): If there are multiple, link all
Animal Class and species: Ex: Large antlered - Moose
Hunting zone: ex: lake

kukuri 3:
    Relevant Bonuses: Familiars, Traits, Rank, Potions, etc
Link to lease permission(s): If applicable, Delete if not
Link to correction comment: If applicable,  Delete if not
Are you the original creator? If not, please tag the creator: this is so that they are aware of it being posted, and admin will double check does it have the rolled comment
Tag for other kukuri/s owner/s: Delete if all kukuris are owned by you

Once youve done this, visit the Activity thread hub and submit your traveling to the Traveling thread; where an admin will check if your entry meets the requirements, roll your rewards, post them to your activity tracker, and automatically add them to your bank.

If a roll is rejected don't fret! Our admins will share the reasoning and you are welcome to make necessary adjustments and resubmit your entry.


There are five biomes in which you may hunt: Rainforest, Evergreen Forest, Tundra, Desert, and Rivers/Lakes. Each of these locations contain unique animals. However you dont need to hunt exclusively those animals in those locations. You may still hunt a Honey Badger in a tundra but expect the quality of the awards to be lower! The descriptions below will help you know what to aim for in your art/liturature!

Tundra: a treeless or near treeless landscape, normally cold but not always covered in snow. during the summer might have many species of flowers

Desert: a dry sandy landscape. might have rock formations, sparce low shrubby or cactuses. Might have lush oases around bodies of water such as rivers.

Evergreen forest: a forest made up of primarily pine trees that stay green all year round. This can include smaller trees or towering sequoias. The ground is normally sparse and rocky.

Rivers/Lakes: a flowing or standing body of water, normally of significant size. Rocky or sandy Beaches/embankments are large and tree lines usually remain far from the water's edge.

Rainforest: A topical and hot environment, normally with a layered echo system consisting of a thick canopy, a middle understory, and the dense forest floor. Has a large variety of plants and insects.
