OOC Updates
7/10/18 — Our summer [mini-update] is now live! We've made some more tweaks to our PVP system as well as some extra encouragement for our players to make use of the Coliseum when writing their fight posts. A related guide is also in the works, so keep an eye out for that to be finished soon! The WIP can be found at the top of the Coliseum forum.

6/2/2018 — Maintenance has been concluded! Hooray! We have new skins and some wall-o-text update for you guys to read. So please make sure you are reading through the summer update.

5/6/2018 — We have wrapped up the Blessings of Twilight event and will have the end results up soon once everyone's points are tallied. Elle has also provided us with a couple of new affiliate buttons to use, so big thank you to her for her help!

4/10/2018 — [Character Appreciation Auditions] are open for a few more days! Now's the time to bring in an already established character into a brand new world, even if they aren't originally a lion. The second [Blessings of Twilight] event is also underway, so be sure to track your characters' progress and earn those cool prizes!

4/01/2018 — Hmm... Something is just [not quite right] around this place and you guys are writing some really weird stuff.

3/21/2018 — Our long-awaited [Spring Update] has officially dropped! Along with a few clarifications and an overhaul of the task system, we have given the guidebook a complete overhaul as well for easier navigation and understanding. New and returning players are encouraged to give everything a read-over, and as always, staff is happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have!

2/4/2018 — Year 4 is underway, as well as Baraenor's First Anniversary! We have a very special Character Appreciation this time around that lasts all through the month of February, and we need some help compliling pivotal threads for our Year 3 Synopsis.

1/20/18 — It's Winter of Year 3, and that means that the IC year is coming to a close! Expect Hall of Fame nominations to open soon, and be sure to read up on all of the user polls we're using to help continue to fine-tune the task system. We are always looking for more imput and suggestions from our playerbase!

12/28/17 — Baraenor enters Autumn of Year 3, and the next phase of the White Stag Event has begun! Be sure to sign up for a belated Christmas Gift, as well as enroll in Scribble Wars for next month for a chance to win some gems!

12/1/17 — Summer of Year 3 has steam-rolled its way into existence. As always, contests are being held, links to which can be found riiiiight below these updates. Christmas is almost upon us in the real world (and by almost I mean almost a month from now) so be prepared because it is the season for gifting. Creatures have also been allowed onto the site for a price unless you bring them during Character Appreciation Week, so feel free to ask for details if you need more information.

11/4-17 — Another month gone and Baraenor enters into Spring of Year three! We have a lot of contests coming up so keep an eye out for those - and don't forget that Christmas is just around the corner! Who knows what suprises will be in store for the players of Baraenor! Also look to see the ending of the BWP for our resident Witch Doctor - he's going to be picking up steam.

10/4/17 — Baraenor has officially entered its third IC year! Welcoming the new year with a harsh winter that will hopefully bring promise of a better spring. In other news, the third stage of the board wide plot has been temporarily suspended until such time we have a few people that have completed stage two. This is to give people time to catch up as well as keep all surprises of each stage given via in character interactions. We will let you know when the next stage is released. =)

9/23/17 — Winter has come on Baraenor! this one is going to be a particularly difficult one. Rogue's will receive -5% heath per IC Winter Month this go around instead of the normal -3% so it's recommended they find homes soon. Since nobody knew ahead of time, one OOC week will be given to find a home before December health deductions will be made by staff.

9/13/17 — The brand-new PvP system has been officially announced, and is now in effect across Baraenor. Please see this update for more information! With this, we've also created a new forum called The Coliseum so players can practice writing fight posts without putting their characters in jeopardy.

9/2/17 — The Sept/Oct 'Spooky' Board Wide Event has officially been released, opening up a new forum for posting! For full detailed information on what the event involves, check out both threads in this forum.

8/31/17 — Happy (very belated) six months to Baraenor! We've added a few neat things to both IC and OOC profiles, which can be found in this update. Sign-ups for Scribble Wars, our first-ever posting contest, are also open until September 3rd! Players may enter with as many characters as they want, so don't forget to register for the chance at some very nice rewards!

8/20/17 — An official site update has been posted here. Some new changes have been made in regards to The Giving Tree, Gem Shops and Tasks so be sure to look it over. We've also introduced Character Appreciation Week and Of the Month Nominations so be looking for those in the future!

8/7/17 — An update has been posted here. If everyone could take the time to read over and input any ideas or opinions it would be greatly appreciated! Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded. Due to smaller numbers at the current time, we have opted to close two of the prides in order to try and fill the remaining ones a bit better. Kyvar will remain open and ready for reclaiming as it was one of the original prides on the forum.

7/31/17 — Cootie will be gone from August 3rd-18th, on a trip to Japan! Please direct any concerns to Jolee during this time, as she'll be back from her absence then to keep things up and running. Cootie will still try to pop in on Discord and the cbox to check on everyone, but otherwise expect kind of a lull while everyone's out traveling before school starts back for a lot of players. Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

7/24/17 — We are still accepting entires for our Flora and Fauna contest! This is a neat opportunity to contribute directly to the world of Baraenor, and earn something for your efforts! We've seen several new faces around lately, so thank you to everyone that's been posting our advertisments. Keep it up so we can bring even more new players into our community!

7/12/17 — The Starfall Contest has ended now and the skies have started to return to normal. Congratulations to everyone who won in the OOC or IC contest. =) In other news, Tabs has opted to take a break from Adminship for a little while and relax so if you have any questions feel free to inquire with Jolee or any of the other staff members as well as posting inquiries in the Soundboard forum for questions and suggestions. We will be attempting to go through the site soon and seeing if anything could be improved upon so input is always appreciated.

6/27/17 — The Starfall Contest is quickly drawing to a close, but there's still time to participate and nifty prizes to be won! The guidebook has been updated with all of the newest changes, as well as a few tweaks for clarity after feedback from the playerbase and other observations. You can read more about those here!

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway! We're still working out some kinks and making new gameplay additions, the latest of which can be read about in this update. Staff auditions have also opened up, and interested parties can have a look here at the open positions and how to apply!

5/25/17 — Lots of updates and changes are coming to Baraenor! With the removal of the pride limit - how many lions will be searching to stake their claims on their own lands? With the addition of Woman Empowerment ladies of Baraenor have just a little more umph.. But they still have to work for it! Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

04/24/17 — There have been several updates made recently, highlighting tweaks in the fighting system, a task overhaul, gridlines on the map and much more! Check them out here and here for more information. We also have a shiny new Game Development board, where we'll be discussing anything new and exciting with everyone!

03/19/17 — As we move into our third month of being open, we see some accounts going inactive. Make sure that you guys are posting at least once a month to keep characters from falling inactive! And remember, if a character under 1 year goes inactive they will be considered deceased. Keep up the posts, guys!

02/26/17 — Things have been said, and heard! A new update comes on the horizon and with it comes a fighting system that we hope will keep the 'hands off' approach, while remaining fair to everyone involved. You can find it Here!

02/20/17 — To all our lovely members, we provide a brief update to let everyone know that we now have a special forum under Art Corner where we are housing all the wonderful editable line arts that we have been able to get with your gracious donations. These are available for member use only and password protected so if you are wishing to use them please PM Tabs or Jolee in order to get the password. Currently there is only an infant cub line art available, but more will be added as Ale-Tie completes them. =)

02/13/17 — It's been a week since our opening, and we've put out an Update!. In this update, we welcome a new staffer, and two new prides! Don't forget the current contests we have going on! Some will end coming up here soon.

02/07/17 — We have a couple of contests going on right now, Advertising contest which has a few of our breed only (And non purchaseable) pelt colors as prizes. Skinning contest with Gems as prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for a Valentines day Scavenger hunt as well! In the meantime, we'd like to give a HUGE thank you to both Pessy and Vix for donating towards making Baraenor! And to the players who have joined up in the last few days. Without the players, there would be no site. They have our love!

02/05/17 — Baraenor is now officially open! Players may begin to start creating OOC and IC accounts. Thank you to everyone that has helped us get to this point in time. If you are new to Baraenor, please refer to our Grand Opening announcement for further details and don't forget to read over the required reading in the Guides. If you happen to find any bugs in coding, please report them on this thread.
IC Updates
06/20/18 — Spring is here! The residents of Baraenor are a little worse for wear, but new legacies begin as Irkbaan Veistul establishes Rothadt Erdő along the eastern coast and Solomon Kivasante follows in his father's footsteps to revive Anima within the ethereal forest. But the land is never without its pockets of violence - Sant Hem's Tyr Rankeshson attempts to make Sundew pay for her insubordination while his heir Roanoke X'uekai is engaged in a death match against Grave Delekr.

05/06/18 — The skies begin to settle but down below the fights rage on, as new king Tyr Rankeshson of Sant Hem challenges Agnar's king Fenris Káruson to a death match. A few hopefuls have made their bids for leadership as well in the wake of Diello Lake's recent flooding and disbandment - the lioness Magdalene founds Izalith along the shores of Avaar Lagoon, the recently displaced Disa Kivasante vies for the throne of Imperio Sangre's Nikiri X'uekai and Kalios Grengar calls upon Duskhollow king Baldur Blackheart to defend his position.

04/10/18 — All hell breaks loose in Fessinger Grove as Diello king Zayn Kivasante leads a raid into Aerodeck's territory, with the recently-established Agnar's Empress Gunnr caught in the crossfire as the violence rapidly escalates. In the thick of the battle, Archduchess Sylvanas - one of Skol's own - turns on her king and challenges him for his crown. It seems the chaos has heralded the converging of the twin moons once again, as they draw ever closer to each other and cause all manner of astrological phenomena!

03/21/18 — With the increased availablity of resources, power begins to shift again, especially in Fessinger Grove - where Parvana re-takes Mirah Shores when Camilla disappears and Beetle Halfsbane departs from Diello Lake to stake her claim of Grimwood along the swamp's eastern edge. Another Diello lioness, Adélaide, also establishes Wintertide along the coast of Perisod Moor, and the rogue Nikiri X'uekai takes a portion of Norren Savanna after the scent markers of Caranox Plains are nowhere to be found.

03/07/18 — Spring is in the air, lifting some of the strains off of Baraenor's population. Food is becoming plentiful again, and with it the promise of a bit more peace among the prides. At least, in theory. Diello's resident tiger Luka attacks High King Skol of Aerodeck after some shady dealings involving one of her pridemates, Hillevi, who in turn makes an arrangement with Solomon in an effort to swear her loyalty. Within the territory of the Nomads itself, Morana issues a challenge against the now former heiress Buttermilk for her title - only for the cheetah to have disappeared, and for newcomer Sylvanas to answer in her place, while Heiress Absinthe of Itthon Nyers comes across Grave of Atral Fen in the bayou, and he ultimately kills her when she attacks him out of bloodlust.

02/18/18 — As the winter season rages on, Reshmi steps up to take over Adhina Cascade in the wake of Lennox's disappearance, renaming it Ashok Basin, while the young Skol Rankeshson makes a deal with the tiger Shrine in order to obtain control of the Aerodeck Nomads. Rostam Delekr takes Paradise, now Itthon Nyers, from Damien - and Nahlot Viitaas makes a bid for Mirah Shores, her challenge answered by current Empress Camilla Delekr.

02/04/18 — Nine prides - and one clan of creatures - have officially established themselves across Baraenor, making competition inevitable for land and resources. With well over twenty members a piece, Diello Lake and Ko'mox Fields have grown to megapride status and could certainly start putting strains on their neighbors. Things are already heating up in Fessinger Grove as new Empress Parvana of Mirah Shores sets her sights on driving the Aerodeck Nomads out of the swamp by raiding their territory!

01/28/18 — Four prides have dissolved under the pressure of the winter snows, paving the way for an ambitious few to build new empires in their wake. Deep in Naru Jungle, however, a battle rages as Solomon, the High King of Diello Lake, challenges Jorunn, Archduchess of Paradise to a death match!

01/20/18 — Eilif, King of Brogan Criostail, is challenged by one Priscilla Delekr for his crown after a disagreement over a young girl named Sakura! Elsewhere, the Empress and Emperor of Ko'mox Fields relocates their pride to the forest, and tensions rise in Starfall Crater over the fate of a trio of newborn cubs after their mother passes away from complications. In the wake of all this, the winter season makes itself known across Baraenor - promising to be one of the harshest yet.

01/04/18— With October comes changes! Damien defeats Varion as ruler of Elysian Summit and has some nefarious plans brewing. Zayn, King of Diello Lake, has managed to cling on to life after a grueling five day healing session by Disa. What does he do upon waking, however? Challenge Sant Hem for Jorunn! Winter is closing in on Baraenor, and with hardships on the way and prides growing more and more unsteady, where will the new season take us?

12/1/17 — As always, new prides appear while, sometimes simultaneously, existing prides vanish. Relations between these prides all lean toward alliances, which leads to a baby boom that is a mix of inter-pride passion and the Witch Doctor's influence. Meanwhile, strange occurrences begin to circulate through the rumor mill. Whispers of a white stag are abound, and folks are also beginning to speak of other creatures speaking lion-tongue. A leopard, a crocodile.. what else might Baraenor become a home for in the future?

11/4/17 — Much has happened in the last few months! The Witch Doctor continues his conquest to finish his goals.. Beware those of you who are of the dearly departed! In the meantime - multiple prides have fallen over the harsh winter months, leaving Baraenor down to six! With fewer prides, it means that there are alot of creatures looking to stake their own claims on the land. A few challenges are liable to crop up!

9/9/17 — The ocean recedes, forging a path to the mysterious island northeast of the mainland. However, it's an eerie locale, veiled by fog and ghostly voices that beckon the living to come and explore. Surely there's some correlation between it and the wandering souls that have been released from their bonds to the Memoire Fields, drifting across Baraenor as they did in life, searching for the reason behind their newfound freedom.

8/31/2017Anima Falls King Nevermore discovers the gruesome scene of his son's death and wife's capture, forcing him to abandon his territory and leave Baraenor in search of the culprit. Takira "Taske" Neron becomes the Empress of the forest in his stead, the shift in power quiet and undisturbed. On the opposite side of the map, Maranon Basin is founded in Mystall Ridge by Empress Devana and her mate, Helios, and becomes Baraenor's northernmost pride.

8/20/2017 — The unrelenting heat takes a toll on its inhabitants, but time marches on and not even the season can halt the rise and fall of monarchs across the land. When Kyvar Morass is left vacant once again, it is reclaimed by Livanna Varg, such that the jungle sees its first Empress in the wake of a harshly patriarchal past. Azil Hollow, having outlived its usefulness as a sanctuary in the mountains, is also abandoned and vanishes from the map - at least for now.

7/24/2017 — Baraenor is on the cusp of a heated summer, and with it the promise that the turmoil will ebb away a little - if only for now. Hard-pressed former queen Isadora takes over the abandoned Azil Hollow as its Empress and a young and amibitious Kaiden lays claim to the jungle of Kyvar Morass, while Mordred ascends the throne of Murkwood Grotto not long after his brother vanished. The survivors of the clash between the Delekr family and their outcasts are seeking vengeance, claiming the wives left behind as their own or holding them prisoner as punishment.

7/10/17 — In the wake of the strange astral phenomena, cubs are born with fur like the night sky in Anima Falls, and the tensions between Azil Hollow and Kyvar Morass finally erupt into a bloody battle on the grasslands. Four are killed - including Azil's king and one of his children - leaving the desolate Hollow in the paws of its young heir. Not long afterwards, Kyvar Morass and Murkwood Grotto both lose their kings. Will others take up their mantles, or are they destined to fade into obscurity?

6/27/17 — The moons grow closer and closer, one threatening to eclipse the other, the zenith of this strange phenomenon fast approaching as tensions run high across Baraenor. Skellryn Vale sees a new king not long after the death of its empress, when her heir Lilith is captured by Kyvar Morass and a lion named Artaxias claims the abandoned prideland. Another Delekr has taken over Murkwood Grotto in the wake of the prior king's disappearance, though the site of his claim is anything but peaceful, as the newly crowned Lennox immediately challenges for Rakel, a lioness of Mirah Shores, after a few heated words. Elsewhere, a strange pool charged with moonlight has revealed itself in Ethereal Forest - where did it come from, and what could it mean?

6/10/17 — A massive power shift consumes the land when Korrin is run from his territory and stripped of his name by his father Rhask and eldest brother Haru upon their arrival. Korrin and his loyalists flee to the mountains and establish Azil Hollow, while Haru himself takes the Kyvar Morass throne. Two other prides pop up elsewhere - Skellryn Vale and Navtiv Valley - while young Delekr Havok lays claim to the again abandoned Steppes, renaming it Murkwood Grotto and moving it to Ragefire Peaks. The heavens seem to be mimicking the chaos down below as the twin moons move ever closer together; stars are raining across the sky and a particularly large meteor has made landfall in Perisod Moor.

5/22/17 — When the King of Aellexus Steppes unexpectedly dies, the chance to claim the title emerges. Within minutes of the occurrence, a lion named Nevermore attempts to claim Ethereal Forest for his own. No more than 4 hours after, a lion named Vyper attempts to secure the savanna. Will these males go unchallenged, or will they be forced to fight for the title? Read more here and here.

5/12/17 — After the unexpected disbandment of Kyvar Morass, Korrin seeks to reclaim his title. Will he go unchallenged, or will blood be shed once more by the lions of the jungle? Read more here.

5/9/17 — True to what we've grown to expect, there is always something big going on in Mirah Shores. This time, it is a battle for the title of Queen. Hannibal, a fairly new addition to the pride, has her sights set on something big. After regaining her title so recently, Isadora loses it quicker than most of us expected. Newly crowned and ready to flaunt it, Hannibal goes so far as to invite the King's brother Barbas to her den for the night. Are more cubs on the horizon for this eclectic pride?

5/9/17 — Kirena of Mirah Shores, who just lost her only remaining cub (Sabryn) to a crocodile and has been outranked by a slave despite being the King's wife, is losing her mind. Not only does she find her assumed deceased son (Exodus) alive and well; she does not believe that he is actually her son. Sure that she would not be allowed to keep the boy due to feeling neglected, Kirena intends to alert Ezekael and leave it at that, though when Ezekael arrives, he solidifies Kirena's thoughts by calling for Isadora to care for the cub. Kirena, now feeling even further betrayed and unhinged, calls Isadora to a death match! Isadora, contrary to what we've seen of her battling in the past, goes for the kill without a second thought. Ezekael attempts to calm the situation, but it escalates regardless, one wife intent on killing another. Coincidentally enough, Graham from Iron Mountains has been loitering around the territory, even going so far as to having a private conversation with Kirena in an attempt to figure out what her turmoil is all about. The King of the Mountains leaps to the defense of Kirena, intent on turning the tables of the Death Match onto Isadora instead. Somehow Isadora manages to dodge Graham entirely, and the Death Match halts abruptly. Barbas slides in to seek compromise and diplomacy, but Graham has had enough with being nice to this pride that seems to be in shambles due to outside forces. He demands that Kirena be released to his care, and Ezekael gives her up like he'd never married her at all. Kirena flees in one direction, Chani the cub flees in another, and Graham leaves with the few members of his pride that have shown up.

5/9/17 — Just when you think things are settling down, two lionesses are killed in freak accidents caused by Mother Nature! Civali of Kyvar Morass is crushed beneath a fallen tree, leaving her husband Mordred and her son Dogo to grieve. Sabryn, a cub of Kirena's, of Mirah Shores is eaten alive by a massive crocodile who seems now to be a permanent fixture of Avaar Lagoon. Heartbreakingly enough, Kirena takes this loss extremely hard, having lost her son shortly after the litter was born. Shortly thereafter, Voluspa, current Queen, after giving birth and claiming Isadora's cubs as her own, travels to Iron Mountains in search of the King. Graham is quick to answer, and asks her what she might need. Suddenly we see Voluspa as never before, looking over her shoulder as though followed, crying out for help from the heterochromatic King of the Mountains. She tells him that Ezekael raped Isadora! Seeking justice, questioning his alliance to the Shores, Graham hustles his way to Fessinger Grove to find answers. Once there, with Ezekael and most of his pride (only one child is curious enough to check out the commotion) present, Graham explains his presence and calmly asks for the truth. Ezekael denounces Voluspa as Queen, stating it was always Isadora, but Voluspa, newly made slave, proves him wrong by using her Witch Doctor ability to summon an ancestral leader who will answer two questions truthfully. Graham breaks the alliance between Iron Mountains and Mirah Shores, leaving in disgust.

5/9/17 — Meanwhile, the new King of Iron Mountains has received the perfect initiation.. a challenge for his crown! Vyper, new to Baraenor but ambitious enough to rival all inhabitants, eventually succumbs to Graham, leaving the Mountain stronghold exactly as it was. On the northern side of the realm, more misfortune has befallen Mirah Shores, their Archduchess Tishala in particular. After happening upon a rogue lioness in Rysen Grasslands, the females are approached by Kyvar Morass' infamous grouch, Mordred. In his usual fashion, the red-maned male lays claim to the rogue immediately, and even Gersemi the Queen arrives to welcome their newest addition. At first it seems all will be well, for Tishala attempts to leave without a fight, but Mordred does the unthinkable and tries to claim her, despite her already belonging to Mirah Shores! Quick to the rescue is the King himself, charging in to protect his pride member. Absolute chaos erupts when Ezekael's brother Barbas, Heir to the throne, follows along and attempts to even the score by claiming Gersemi, who is unknowingly pregnant at this time. Korrin, her husband, descends on Barbas to protect Gersemi, calling for war between their prides in the process. One by one the crowd piles in to witness the majesty of Ezekael vs Mordred for Mirah Shores and Korrin vs Barbas for Gersemi. During this intense instance, Korrin is defeated by Barbas, making Gersemi a member of Mirah Shores, and while Korrin is down, his brother Gideon swoops in to claim the crown for Kyvar Morass'. Ezekael defeats Mordred in the end, leaving the prides to disperse to care for their wounded and process the state of hostility with their closest neighbor.

5/9/17 — Continuing on the same train of thought from our last update, we have surprising news from Mirah Shores. No sooner than Voluspa charging in for the kill did Isadora attempt to escape, only to be thwarted by her own brother-in-law, Barbas, and Voluspa herself. Ezekael is not present in this moment, when Voluspa strikes Isadora down to the rank of slave (a first in Baraenor's young life), for attempting to abort her litter. Gideon, who at this time was still Kyvar's sub-King, pays witness to all of the madness which unfolds here, giving him an intimate look into the workings of this oceanic pride.

04/5/17 — Much has happened since our last update! Voluspa has challenged Isadora to a death match after finding her attempting to abort her cubs, while also pregnant herself! Aellexus Steppe has a new King, Evander, and has started accepting members at a growing rate. It seems that testosterone has run rampant through the lands of Baraenor, especially Kyvar Morass. Korrin has a new Queen, who's filled to the brim with his young; he's also chased his brother, Gideon, from the land for choosing a woman over family! Both brothers have maimed one another, each party sporting a marred eye worthy of a patch. Iron Mountains has also had its fair share of drama, Graham meeting an old lover unexpectedly, and becoming the acting King of the mountains while Pallas journeys to find inner peace after delivering the morbid news of the death of Daphne Varg and encountering a cub in a similar situation. That is not all! Mother Nature has also run amok, dispersing singing creatures of all sorts to all the prides; what cooky things does the Mother have planned for us? Stay tuned and you just might find out.

03/19/17 — Pallas has become the new King of Iron Mountains! Meanwhile, Ezekael has found himself quite verulent and has started the process of siring multiple litters! The Varg are making themselves known as the family continues to grow, and with Daphne being returned to them - what dangers await the rest of the valley? More and more lions have stepped into the valley, and things are heating up across the board.

03/03/17 — Things are heating up as more and more lions filter into the lands of Baraenor! Hrungnir and Samuel clash once again over rulership of Aellexus Steppe, with the younger of the two once more emerging victorious. Tensions have run high between Mirah Shores and Kyvar Morass as their kings nearly come to blows over members. Whales have washed up on the beaches, drawing many lions from the edges to see what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, Apollyon has moved the pride once known as Qirin Glade to the Emerald Vale, giving rise to a new pride The Iron Mountains.

June | Things are starting to heat up in Baraenor! The days are getting longer and the temperature is rising. Water levels are slowly starting to recede as the days grow hotter, and the humidity means that the chance of thunderstorms happening is on the rise. Roaming around in the middle of the day will be uncomfortable for most animals, but it isn't a health risk just yet.

PLENTIFUL | The herds have returned in full force to graze the green grasses of spring, with young that are ripe for the taking - as long as you can get around the adults' watchful eyes. [+2 modifier when searching for prey]

The cache was low and Dracks was hungry and his hunt for Shrine was at a lawl while they waited to strategize their next move. He had a lead, he knew where to begin but the damn tiger was always moving, scheming. Skol was correct in his approximation of Shrine; that he was a manipulative, rat-like thing. Always with a plan. But of course Dracks knew he would be the same. In fact he was the same. Except that he liked to think he was no coward...it didn’t matter what he fancied to tell himself, the truth was always there, a cold breath down his back. He had come to Baraenor as a means to escape long-term enslavement. In a way, he had exchanged one kind of bondage for another.

But he knew he was outmatched with King Arkham. Part of him also figured the brute wouldn’t even bother pursuing him, but he had to be sure. He could die for his freedom, and it sounds honorable at face value... but all it would be, in the end, was a death merely to escape having to babysit. There was no honor in that. The most appealing thing to him was to escape so that he didn’t have to teach Arkham’s petulant seed. Why did everyone always want him to teach their offspring, scabby little rodents of their lions? It wasn’t that he hated children. He enjoyed playing with them, when the mood struck him, but he valued the freedom to shove them back at their parents and not be expected to hold some kind of responsibility over them. He was a shit father to his own kids.

It was almost humorous...that all of this working was just to escape a life of domestic bliss. So, no, he did not consider himself the same as Shrine. Running out of fear. He was running more out of disgust than anything and it would be such a waste to die over it. So here he was, in a rather brutish mood on this day, trudging into the early morning mists of the grassland. Ironic, it was, that he felt as if he was babysitting after all. None of the females in the goddamned pride seemed to want to do their job of hunting, so either they all starved in the middle of Spring for crying out loud or he had to get up and take care of shit like he always had. Even though he absolutely hated doing it, almost as much as teaching. It wasn’t that he hated hunting, no, it was that all of the prey one can get in a solitary hunting trip is usually weak and easy. There is no sport in it. Only utility. But sometimes you have to do the boring shit, sometimes you have to maintain. So here he was, mouth agape as he tasted the air, searching for something with at least a little bit of fight in it.

Hog. He had left his ritual adornments in Aerodeck, except for the bones knotted to his beard. His roughhewn hide held a golden quality in the honey-laden morning light and he enjoyed the crisp spring air as he prowled, low to the ground, following the scent of water and mud to find the nearest watering hole where a nice fat pig might be having a morning shower.

He finds a watering hole, but there is no life there. Claws dig into the wet soil as he breaths, attempting to stifle his annoyance so that he can save it for the rage that will unfurl at whatever wild beast is unfortunate enough to meet his jaws today. He turns his jaws toward the air once more, keeping his ears perked and eye alert. He does not walk with a limp, at the moment, not wanting to anyone to think he’s a weakling while he’s distracted. Instead, he continues with a low trudge, muscles rippling under the compacted weight. He follows the greenery that laces the edge of the water to a grove, wondering if the damn pigs are still bedded down. He is careful to mask his hefty steps as much as possible in the soft, cool grass.

His irritation was growing. It had been some time since he had hunted something substantial on his own. Although he had lived a nomadic life for countless years, having to provide for himself what was not given to him as payment for his bloody work, skills get rusty if they are not used. He presses on some bushes with his broad chest, eyeing the empty bed of grass on the other side with a skeptical eye. His expression quickly wrinkled into barbaric rage. He lashed out at the bush, grabbing at its freshly bloomed branches with his jaws and tearing it apart. He shook the disembodied branches in his mouth, leaves flying to and fro. And he tossed the plant parts to the side before ushering a quiet snarl into the early morning air. Nose and ears twitching, chest expanding as he panted softly: okay, he felt a bit better now.

He would continue his search, moving a good deal away from the scene of his bush-murder, knowing that his fit would have scared away any intelligent animal. Still walking low and quiet (for such a big, fat guy – he knew how to move quite stealthily. Part of his line of work.), he lowered his standards to look for anything at all that he might get his mouth around, but still holding out for a nice, meaty swine.

Her quest for sanctuary had ran her south. A course that she was most pleased with as she stalked the open land. The trees of the grove loomed in to sight before long and the female did not stop. Her elegantly chiseled legs would cause her to go astray. Path now turned to lead her through the coverage of tree canopies over head. The heat of spring had given the moment she entered the shadowed range. Eyes narrow as they adjust to such dimmer light. Though it did not take long and her eyes were burning to find more. Especially as her nose rose to the air and gave a gentle sniff that would bring the thick musk of male to her nostrils.

A flash of excitement crossed her pale blue eyes and a smile snaked a way on to her lips. With a new interest she pressed on. Eager to find the source and sate her curiosity, she does not stop until her gaze is laid upon the magnificent beast. He seemed in a primal state. Body morphed to that of a hunt and it caused her own to mirror. Limbs bend and her height is lowered so that her unders are just above the ground. She stalked in a manner aimed to cut him off. Though it would appear as an innocent accident. Lips take a rounded shape as a soft, "Oh." Released. False surprise to find another in the vicinity. "Beg my pardon on the intrusion." A flash of ivory teeth behind peeled lips that formed a dainty and feminine smile.

Nature scorned him, the gods turned their faces. These stupid grasslands would not yield their bounty to him, just as the tiger too had established his ability to slip from grasp. Frustration, impatience, hunger, and boredom brewed a hot gumbo of near-specious savagery in his veins. The churning of bent legs underneath him jerked to a halt as a figure the color of bleached wheat abruptly slithered into the blind-side of his vision. Although the grassland hid prey from him, she willingly spewed out unwanted company. His shoulders braced as she approached him, head tilted downward and nose wrinkled. Her too-sweet mouth slick with sarcasm and insult. The tension that began in his upper-body ran a rapid course down his back and electrified the bones and sinew in his tail, causing it to twitch. He immediately adjusted his angle so that he looked at her with his good eye, which at this point was a raging tarn of curiosity and fury.

She seemed to tease, and his scarred lips drooped even further into the already stoic frown dressing his jaws before turning up into a snarl. The cambers of his sneer lit up the rugged plans of his face, furrowing a solid ridge in his brow. "Looks like I’m hunting clumsy brat today." He said, with a leisurely quickness, jerking his head from left to right as if loosening the muscles in his neck before channeling the built-up anger and coiled tension in his already crouched hind legs into an attempted lunge at the pretty little fool. His front paws aimed to maintain traction on the ground, however, and it was his gaping jaws that hoped to grab on to her rump, which might be closest to him after her intrusion.

He could do far more if he was serious. He was not serious yet. This, this was just teasing her back.

His words, his very reaction to her arrival had not been what she expected, but she would not deny him his attempt. She stepped forward out of false shock when he moved. Instinct to try to avoid the attack. She had been lowered and even stanced when stalking as he was, a predator stance. This does not, however, get her out of the way in time as teeth still manage to find a place along the thick of her hind, more toward the back, they leave small punctures to the flesh. Front had began to twist on contact- hind end tried to pull away as she half turned. Front left paw aimed to lift and rake claws down his available right side if managed, just before his hind limb. As weight shifted to steady herself on three limbs, her tail flailed behind her to try and help aid as well. Toes splayed to keep her grip on the ground with nails extended on all four of her paws.

His teeth met purchase on the booty and he’d be lying if it didn’t feel good to taste even a minute amount of blood, and to feel something writhing in his jaws for the first time in a while. His hind legs spread some to aid in his balance and hopefully his bite-force, while his tail belted out behind him. Toes ground under the grass, splayed and muscles across his great form tensed and shuddered as his momentum was braked. The lioness was quick to rebuke him, whipping around to swipe at his hind end. He moved his hips but the sharp tips of her claws raked at his skin, causing a wince to join the wrinkles on his face. Blood had yet to seep out from the small wounds, but it was surely on its way. He continued to move his hind quarters attempting to stand directly behind her and out of reach, knowing he would have to be in constant movement to succeed in this so his legs spread and toes gripped for traction in the ground. In the meantime, he did not attempt to obtain a grip with jaws and instead recoiled his head to its aligned position with chin tilted slightly downward while trying to preserve his proximity. He would attempt instead to lift both forepaws on either side of her hips, hoping to hook unsheathed claws into her skin, imagining that she was the hogs that so eluded him and falling into an instinctive stance used in tradition to bring down prey. He felt himself panting, having moved fast and hard, and his excitement was quick to victimize his old respiratory system.

The valkyrie in the woman growled in protest as claws pricked and raked the surface. She cursed herself for not getting a better result. Though it would do. She thought. But no the horrid brute does not stop. Though his release was given, it was short lived. Hind end tried to continue to swing away from him as he let go, toes splayed for the traction needed on the grounds surface. It is too late as one set of claws hooked just before her hip bone and soon the other followed as he too swung around with her attempt to get away. It was foiled. She felt his weight and hind knees bent accordingly, but still she managed to stand. By instinct her tail tucked to not only guard her precious womanly treasure, but to cover the under sides at his close proximity. Front claws dug in to the terrain as hind limbs pushed- a last attempt to try and lunge forward and away from his forceful pull.

"Perhaps you will pay attention to where you’re going now, hm, you little gremlin." The last word was grunted out as she jerked away from his grasp and panting, he had to lurch forward with her in an attempt to maintain his claws on her skin. He would hop with his hind legs, pushing off from their crouched position in order to try to keep up with her. Never the less his grip would slide but he hoped that when she pulled away, his sharp claws could at least tear streaks into her skin if his clutch had been strong enough. He struggled to shadow her movements, tail whipping out to help with his balance, and he panted all the while - bleeding from the stinging scratches etched into his shoulder. Despite himself his right forepaw would slam back down instinctively to keep from falling over so he abandoned his forepaws and in the same fluid motion he would duck his head and proceed with his momentum forward in order to ram the rightside of her hips with his thick skull. He hoped to knock her off balance, but was also mindful of the possibility that she could be knocked around and unwittingly into a position facing him. She could come whirling back, an angry thing, so he kept his head down and throat tucked away under thick furs and rugged jaws. At least he aimed for the side of her hips that would tilt her to the right, his good side, rather than the left – his bad side – if everything went as planned, of course. All four feet on the ground and splayed he threw all of the barbaric oomph of tensed muscle in his attempt to headbutt. He was thoroughly enjoying himself. He wondered if she was enjoying herself as well.

Probably not.

To do so would require another fight, labelled as a maim or death match.

[Aralahk] is the victor of this match.

There was never an ounce of fear. The valkyrie woman would welcome death at any given time. Though as he released his hold she was ever relieved. Thankful even that he shoved her. She used his weight to push her away from him instead. Though in the process of stumbled sideways. It mattered not. As long as she could place any sort of precious distance between them. Still, she did not run. Limbs braced as she half turned to face him. Heart thundered in her chest. Lips peeled back in her wicked snarl. Though a tongue escaped to swipe across them as she waited. Bruised, battered and streaked with crimson.
