This is the third and final of the Rites of Fertility, which you must pass in order to breed your Tokota. You may chose to complete any prompt, aligning with your faction is not required; however, faction points may only be earned during judging when completing your factions' prompts.
This event will be judged regularly as the moderators schedule allows. Rules and judging rubric can be found on the main Rites of Fertility page.





Rite of Strength


This test is open to all, but is affiliated with Pack Leaders.



[RoS] Survival Skills by Furreon Who needs a handler? Skalle RoSThe creature was lean with shaggy tawny fur, a pale grey underside. It looked a little bedraggled, moth-eaten even. It bore scars, a chipped fang, a torn ear, a semi-blind eye and deep marks on its back.
   It looked unusual and out of place as it slunk through the rocky terrain of Tokotna. At first glance, it appeared to be nothing more than a battle worn Lynx; a male whom had lost one too many fights with his rivals but if you watched him long enough, you would realise that this wasn’t all that he was.
   But not today. Today a fox hung limp from between his jaws as he headed towards his companion. He moved with unexpected grace and agility and soon he found what he was looking for.
   The larger animal was curled up asleep, his black and white shaggy fur moved slightly with the breeze, but he woke as soon as the lynx arrived. It yawned widely and peered round at his smaller companion who had dropped his kill.
   “What pray tell is


Hunting


Draw or write about your tokota attempting to take down a prey animal of choice in the Tokotna wilderness - this may be a fierce grizzly bear defending its salmon filled river to a sly fox making its way through the underbrush trying to avoid its hunter; the depiction of the hunt is up to you.

(The prey must be at least 25% visible. You may use any Tokotas prey, regardless of the season, including Tribe Hunting prey. For a full list, see the hunting price list.)

(The chosen subject for babysitting must be at least 50% visible)

So Fancy

FAQ


Does the hunting prompt count as a hunting activity piece?


No, it will not be rolled for prey and counts for the "rite" HP bonus rather than the activity HP bonus.

What tokota can I draw as the tagged tokota?


You can draw whoever you like! It can be your own tokota, a friend's, or one of the starter tokotas.

What can I draw for my tokota to "babysit"?


Anything young and in need of fulltime care, i.e. tokota pup, baby animal or child, up to you! The young you decide to draw can be your own characters/tokotas, a friends or totally made up - its your choice.

My tokotas rites were completed for the previous owner who is a member of a different faction. Can I still submit the rites?


Yes! You can submit a rite that has used a prompt for any of the factions. You will not receive a faction point if an excellent score is earned if the rite does not match your current faction.

My tokotas rites were in progress when I switched factions and now I have the wrong rite completed. Can I still submit the rites?


Yes! You can submit a rite that has used a prompt for any of the factions. If you submit your rites for judging and then switch factions you may not receive a faction point if an excellent score is earned.
