Although Kyotas originated in Japan, they have spread to various other countries as well. This allows Kyotas to have an opportunity to explore anywhere on Earth for valuable herbs, fruits, firewood, etc. From Mt. Fuji to the Mayan ruins, you never know what you'll find!
Tracking or Trawling:
If you're in need for valuable pelts and hides, tracking areas are easily accessible! There's also plenty of fishing spots. What prizes will your Kyota manage to catch? Be aware these two activities are entirely separate, but they both revolve around obtaining food!
Diving: Specialist+ (2-4)
Do you dare to sail the seven seas, searching for long lost treasure and sunken ships? You'll never know what you find until you go looking for it... but beware, there may be mysteries lurking within the watery depths.
Spelunking: Reowned+ (3-4)
Mountains and caves can be treacherous. Any Kyota who dares to set paw in these lands may score some riches! However, they should remain wary. You never know what horrors lurk in the shadows, and the mountainsides contain dangerous wildlife.
PARTICIPATIONIn order to participate in activities, you will need a tracker. This can be located in your sta.sh or posted as a regular journal. It can be generalized for activity results only, or be an AP tracker for that specific Kyota. Admins will be commenting on the journal(s) with your activity roll results.
More tracker examples:
Submissions require a form in their written description. There must be a separate form for EACH Kyota being rolled. Forms must have a bare-bones structure at minimum. You may make your forms as simple or fancy as you like, as long as admins are able to read it. If you have anything missing from your form (ex: forgotten tack), it will not count towards that roll.
nicknames: (lit only)
prey: (tracking only)
health: (fit, blind, deaf, etc)
