    With all of the unusually stormy weather that’s been upsetting local events and generally making for a very wet spring, as June creeps in, a small ray of sun shines down on damped spirits. The weather for the Wild Chase is perfect, the usually dry, hot season in the Veldt can be a bit overbearing for colder weather creatures, but not this year.

    The Wild Hunt is an ancient holiday, formed by some of the earliest settlements to come together in the region, while the original reason of hunting local migratory birds is no longer part of it, the trappings and spirit is still there with a few modern additions.

    Some come to enjoy the weather and flowers in bloom as a sort of vacation, others to enjoy the events. Outdoor markets are set up to show case both domestic fowl for sale, and captive birds of prey performances. Unique pieces of art and clothing featuring feathers are prominent, as well as local foods.

    Prompt: Draw or write about your character’s adventures at the event. Maybe they come to enjoy the weather, or sell their wears, perhaps their a local who just likes the gathering?

    • Rewards: 100 Kouneen, and 50% at a Sorantto Veldt gathering item.

    One highlight event is a week long dash to gather as many feathers as one can, with different types of feathers worth more points than others. Participants can focus on speed and numbers, or taking the time to carefully choose only rare and hard to find feathers. Both styles have a chance at winning.

    At the end of the event, feathers are tallied up and the winner is gifted special gear considered to be lucky.

    Players may pay 500 Kouneen per character they wish to enter the challenge.

    Only characters that have paid entry may be drawn for this prompt and will each have their own feather count.

    Prompt: Draw or write about your character collecting feathers.

    • Rewards: Untrained characters: 1-4 feather rolls. Trained characters: 2-4 feather rolls. Trained characters from Sorranto Velt: 2-5 feather rolls, and a 50% chance at 1TP.
    • Prizes: TBA!
    • Secret Prompts active: 1

    While most of the event is met with smiles and laughter, it seems not everything is running smoothly, by midday it’s become apparent a human child has gone missing, after stalls and seating have all been checked.

    The veldt can become an unsafe place a young kid after sundown, predators like smilodons and snakes prowl just outside small towns. A search party has been gathered and begins to look for clues in town first…

    Prompt: Draw or write about your character helping search for clues around the event space first, the child couldn’t have gone too far.

    This is a group quest, all players will add to helping out! Once a player has discovered a clue, a new piece of the story will be added, until the story is completed. Depending on which clues are found first, the story has two branching paths that might happen.

    • Rewards: 100 Kouneen, 30% at an event item roll, and 10% chance of clues.
    • Bonus reward: Depending on which story ending is achieved all players that contribute at least one submission to the hunt will revive a special reward at the end.

    Scanning through the domestic Fowl at the market, Squix started to wonder: maybe they could keep a few chickens of their own. Not for the meat. For the eggs!…. and because they where adorable, he admitted.
    Ivy however wasn’t so convinced of this idea.

    The child must be so scared. The poor thing. Of course Squix helped search for clues. Maybe there was something personal around to catch a scent from.

    She was unsure of how she could find the missing human child. Denali was never good with kids. Especially human kids. Heck, she wasn’t good with humans. It wasn’t her fault that she wasn’t raised around them. Denali’s pack was one of the many feral kirun packs native to the Veldt. No matter, she would try her best anyway to find the poor thing. Knowing personally the very real dangers of the grasslands, she made haste.

    For once he had an idea that wouldn’t get him into hardship- first the Roc, then the Secretary bird- and so he stuck to somewhere with better viewing- only to barrel into a blue Kirunhund- Squix! Dropping both their hoards, Lucille could only apologise profusely- what a mess he’d made!

    Finally, it was June! Denali had returned home from her travels in time to celebrate what the humans called “The Wild Chase.” It was a holiday that her pack had celebrated for generations, and, one of her favorite holidays in all of Azorna. Through the Wild Chase, or “N’yaket,” as her pack called it, Denali had learned the values of fair and friendly competition. Through “helping” her parents gather feathers, since she was always too young to join in the contest herself, she was taught the basics of stalking and pouncing on prey. She was also taught how to identify which feathers, and the scents they carried with them, were from dangerous birds and which were from prey animals. Needless to say, N’yaket holds a special place in Denali’s heart. As such, Denali quickly rushed back to her den and threw on her pack’s traditional holiday garments, specially made, both for her and for N’yaket, and rushed off to the marketplace to socialize and get into the holiday spirit. Impressing her friends was a nice bonus.
    This year, she was going to enter the gathering contest. But first, she was going to have to find a safe place to put her cloak, since it would be cheating otherwise.

    Hayhurst ventures out across the land and just happens to come across a prairie full of beautiful flowers while looking for feathers. He puts them in his mane for safekeeping…though they might fall out.

    Everything looked simply incredible and brightly marked within the market walls- and Denali happened to be one of those views that caught his eye! Admiring his friends beautiful garbing, he couldn’t help but think- Would she miss a feather towards the Feather Count?

    Few trees scattered the edges of the town, and whilst others searched the main area of events, Lucille and Denali decided to try the very far reaches- hoping the child had grown curious of the outskirts, but not ventured dangerously close to the unforgiving wilderness of the Veldt. Upon a branch they could spy what seemed like material, perhaps blown by an updraft- it was worrying nonetheless. Giving the smaller Kirun a boost, she soon managed to grasp a hold of it- maybe it was just old material? A child couldn’t have gotten this far, could they?
