Dire Days Task 2 Bonus 1Archer yawned and stretched, hands hitting the flimsy material of his tent. Momentarily confused, his eyes blinked open and he looked around, trying to find out where he was camping before the memories of his adventure rushed over him. He was camping out with a bunch of other tokota handlers and their tokotas on the Tartok mountains, which seemed to have a large population of wild dire tokotas. At least, it had seemed to when he first arrived, but now, they were thinning out as well as the campers. The days were growing shorter, and the nights colder, especially when the sun was staying behind the far mountains for so long. At these altitudes, you needed the sun shining for a solid seven hours to bring the temperature up to sixty. Archer unzipped the tent of his flap after changing into a set of clean clothes, and was immediately met with Vegas’s large muzzle licking his face.
“Oh come on!” He said, pushing the van gogh’s muzzle away from his face, getting a few
Dire Days Task 1 Bonus-ExploringArcher stretched, tired and somewhat sore from the long day in the saddle. Vegas nudged his back and pockets, looking for a treat or some other sort of food. He gently pushed her head away, grasping her halter and looking around for a good place to set up camp. While most of the good spots on the side of the mountain had been taken by earlier arrivals, Archer did see a slight dip in the ground that was sheltered by brush on three sides. He led Vegas over to the spot, instructing her to stay before he took off her saddle and the various camping gear from her back, putting the gear on a particularly large stone. He took off the rest of Vegas’s tack, with the exception of her halter, before turning to set up camp for the next few weeks. The tent was the first thing to set up- Archer didn’t particularly want to be out in the cold for an extended period of time. While it was still summer, the higher up they went, the colder it got. While the sun staying up for most of the day he
Mountain Lion Hunt with AriannaArcher stretched and rose from his bed, hitting his alarm clock to turn off the irritating sound. He sighed, tugging on a fresh set of clothing before walking into the kitchen and starting breakfast. Archer reheated some leftovers, and the smell of sizzling meat wafted through an open window out towards the stable, eliciting a commotion from the tokotas within. Archer ate quickly before walking to the barn, where he fed his tokotas before picking out a few to go with him. He was babysitting Catori and Banji for a friend, so he was definitely going to take those two out with him on the hunt today. After a few moments of thought, he walked over to Kanel’s stall and patted the large curly male on the nose before leading him out of the stall into the center of the stable. Archer finished saddling up the large cream colored male and walked to Catori’s and Banji’s stalls, letting the tokotas out. They trotted out of the barn, and Archer swung himself up into the saddle, fol
Mountain Lion hunt with KearAltious was saddling up in the early morning for the second time in the day. He and a friend had successfully brought down a moose with their five pack of tokotas, and were planning on riding out farther later this afternoon. He grumbled to himself - he would never be a morning person, as much as he liked to pretend he was ready at any point - as he prepared both tokotas he was bringing with him - his Triton and another handler’s Kaiju. The former was a sleek halfmane male, with a lightening of his underside fur, while the latter was a yeti, shaggy and big due to the fur, with a lighter section going above mid height level due to wolverine markings. He had packs on the yeti - though Triton could handle both rider and supplies, it was more fair to get Kaiju to take some of the load. The silver haired adult rode out on Triton, beckoning Kaiju to come along behind them. The brown wolverine male had a lead on, but it was more for emergencies than for regular use. Altious yawned - he
Exploring-Banji, Harlequin, Rovaen, CinnabonArcher stretched and rose from his bed, shooting a thankful glance at the sun shining through his window for waking him up instead of his alarm clock. He reset the clock to go off tomorrow morning instead of while he was saddling up the tokotas before wandering into the kitchen to prepare his breakfast. Archer tossed some leftover meat onto the frying pan, adding touches of herbs and roots that he had gathered on his last outing before turning on the burner. It wasn’t long until the tokotas in the stable picked up on the smell of cooking meat, and their yips and howls echoed around the mountainside as Archer ate quickly. He cleaned up his dirty dishes as he hummed a tune, whistling quietly as he scrubbed away at the grime left on the dishes. After cleaning them, Archer walked out to the barn and shoved open the large doors, looking around the stable for who he was going to take out with him today. After a glance around the stalls at all the furry heads sticking out the windows, A
[E] Lakeside dayThe sun was now very high in the sky, it must have been around four in the afternoon. The group of tokotas and handlers had finally reached the lake they were aiming and were now standing next to it, looking at the sun reflecting on the water surface. The tokotas Poumky, Fawkes, Ravenclaw and Zaleena and Akeri ran altogether towards the lake’s shore. On their back their respective riders (Kayla, Kenan, Ginny, Syn and Archer) were screaming excitedly, eager to have some fun in this new place. the tokota ran in the cold water, creating waves and throwing water all around them. The fishes all disappeared in a fraction of second, eager to hide in some secure place of them. Poumky tried to catch one but didn’t succeed. Instead she was collided by Zaleena, as the yeti tokota was so happy she didn’t even looked where she went. Both Poumky and Kayla ended up in the lake, and that made all the other humans laugh madly. Kayla laughed too, although she was a bit cold
