DRAGON'S MAIN SKILLS, ABILITIES, OR KNOWLEDGE: Coast is a very talented hunter, and survivor. She picked up a lot of technology knowledge when she moved to Alligator Clan. ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? Of course. Coast is a Rank 3 in a group of female mirrors which the clan refurs to as the pack. The pack is responsible for doing all the hunting to feed the clan. Aside from holding a R3 badge, Coast has trained another mirror who now holds the same rank as Coast. When it comes to hunting, tracking, solving puzzles or even negotiating a business deal, Coast is very talented. Her disadvantage is she has little battle experience.

Brazilianite thinks about her clan, they are always swimming in food. She signed up for the thrill of it. Nobody knew that she signed up... She decided against it, after all this was for her own selfish purposes.

She spread her wings in preparation, exitement running high in her body.

“Yes, I’m Saharath,” she replied to Riku, relieved the other dragon hadn’t come to chastise her for staring. But “Partners?” she blurted. She had forgotten that detail of the procedure, caught up in the excitement of the first round coming to its conclusion. And now it seemed she was going to get stuck with a dragon with defective wings! That did not seem like an auspicious start! She hesitated before continuing, remembering what Troith had counseled her about being too quick to judge others. Riku was making a friendly overture, after all. “Ah, sorry, I’m afraid I don’t really know more than you do! I’m sure they’ll tell us what we need to know. I was just going to go pick up the gear they're supplying us.” She had no letter to write. They’d know soon enough how she was doing.

Riku nodded pensively at the wildclaw's words, tuning out the appraising look given to her by the other member of the Grain Train--she was well used to similar glances. "Ah, that's alright, I suppose! Good to know I'm not the only one not quite sure of things. And supplies, hmm? I'll have to go and grab some myself. Perhaps write a letter--I think Fork mentioned that. Anyhow, nice to meet you and good luck with the Games! I won't keep you any longer."

With a small wave, Riku headed on her way. Her next order of business was to procure the starting supplies and write a little letter back home, though the point would soon be moot. She found what she needed on one of the many long tables scattered about, securing the magical bag and canteen to her apparel and penning a quick note to tell the clan of her entry into the Games and the lack of success with the traders.

Then she settled down some, taking a seat near one crystalline wall and thinking over what was to come. She could only hope that she could manage the Games alright, even with her wings. The thought of scaling the Pillar on foot was concerning--could she even manage it? At least her splints could keep her from plummeting in a pinch.

Adriel looks around the cavernous dome, casting her eyes over the other participants. She's not looking to make new friends, or have fun. No, she's here to win. In order to do that she needs a few capable allies, dragons she can count on to have her back. Of course, she's not necessarily going to have theirs.

Spotting a Gaoler wandering along the walls of the cavern, she smirks. He looks like he'll be an easy target. "Hello," she croons, slinking towards him. "How would you feel about a potential partnership?" It's a risk, allying with someone from a different group, but it's one she's willing to take.

[b]Olivine's[/b] attempt to snatch it out of his paw brings him back to reality, and he instinctively retaliates by smacking her across the snout with a bag of toast--or, uh, breadcrumbs, now. [b]Stardust[/b] stuffs the goods in his offering bag and runs, leaving her to block up her nosebleed with some scrunched up bits of fresh sourdough. She'd better not try to give that to Earthshaker when she's done! [b]Nem[/b] knows that, as a Guardian, her size makes her an easy target. She flees the area, figuring it'd be safer for her to seek food elsewhere. This is confirmed as a good idea when a flying grapefruit narrowly misses her head. [b]Deera[/b] spots what he thinks is a bow and arrow set and dives for them. When he stands up, he sees that it was actually a cake leveler and a sack of thin beef sticks. Well, supplies are supplies! Into the bag they go, and away [i]he[/i] goes. [b]Bilbo[/b] decides the best way to survive the chaos is to hide inside the cornucopia itself and wriggles his way in. While there, he discovers a particularly alluring onion ring. For reasons unknown, he feels compelled to pick it up and pocket it. [b]Raodin[/b] sighs at the unruly dragons around them--really, they're acting wilder than hatchlings--and calmly walks up to the Cornucopia. He gathers as much food as he can without worrying about the competition, focused only on the early advantage. [b]Adriel, Vermello,[/b] and [b]Belim[/b] all head for the same pile of potato chip packets, aware that processed food will last longer than any of the fresh goods. [b]Belim[/b] tries to calm the other two down by firing off some well-crafted jokes, but neither [b]Adriel[/b] nor [b]Vermello[/b] are having that. They're here to [i]win.[/i] [b]Vermello[/b] whacks the air out of [b]Belim[/b] with a giant ham--and then spins around just in time to see [b]Adriel[/b] running toward him! [b]Vermello[/b] throws the ham at [b]Adriel's[/b] legs, causing her to stumble into a heap of seafood. She slips on a soggy octopus and, flailing wildly, blinded by a burst of ink, careens into the cornucopia. Satisfied with his double success, [b]Vermello[/b] takes all the potato chips (and a few fish) before running away. [b]Adriel[/b] and [b]Belim[/b] go nowhere at all, already [color=red]knocked out of play.[/color] [b]Braziliante[/b] stops to watch those three fight and decides to switch tactics. Instead of food, she snatches up a big metal serving platter leaned up against the side of the cornucopia. Figuring it'll make a good shield, she then snatches some kitchen twine--gotta make straps for the platter!--and takes off running. Those who have a lot of experience living off the land have different priorities than the average dragon, which is why [b]Saharath[/b] focuses on snagging a bag filled with camping equipment. It doesn't look as though anyone else has noticed, so she strolls away without a care, plucking a bag of marshmallows out of the mess as she goes. [b]Sahiz[/b] thinks Braziliante is on to something. He hunts around until he locates a giant baking sheet, which seems satisfactory enough. Unfortunately, he leaves without getting anything capable of creating straps. That's all right--maybe his shield can be a roof instead. For a moment, [b]Agate[/b] considers healing the players who have been knocked out. Then, remembering that they're her competition and would be better left the way they are, she digs around until she locates a bow, some arrows, and a quiver. Can't use them on the other players, but they'll be helpful if she comes across animals of some sort. [b]Riku[/b] isn't having any of this nonsense. Too many dragons, too much noise, too wild for her tastes. She pulls her hat down, lower over her face, and runs from the Cornucopia in the direction of the sun. [b]Fall[/b] is an optimist, not a fool. This is a farm, yes, and that does mean a lot of food available for the taking--but it also means that most if not all of the food will be in an unprocessed state, yes? So he takes a sickle from just inside the cornucopia to help him with harvesting crops and then flees to the south. [b]Erin[/b] grabs a backpack and retreats without looking at its contents. She's pretty sure they'll be useful to her no matter [i]what[/i] they are--and even if they aren't, she's a skilled hunter and a good ranger. That definitely gives her a leg up on the competition. [b]Fazluna[/b] might be determined to win, but that doesn't mean she expected this kind of wild free-for-all when she signed up. A little overwhelmed, she dives into the cornucopia itself to try to catch her breath and work out an action plan, keeping one wary eye on the other dragon in there with her. [b]Xanthophyll[/b] and [b]Aequorea[/b] know that they who shrink and run away will stay to gather food another day. They can wait until everyone's guards are down to spring their traps. This is just too messy and unpredictable a time to try anything. [b]Friday[/b]charges the cornucopia like a football player, daring anyone to get in his way. Luckily, nobody is that foolish--[b]Umber[/b] actually screeches and dives to the side even though he's more than five feet away from [b]Friday's[/b] path--so once he finds a good spot he stays there and spends a solid chunk of time peacefully gathering up all sorts of supplies and food. [b]Umber[/b] decides that was too close for comfort and runs away. [b]Jordan[/b] picks up a strange contraption and turns it this way and that, shaking it, but nothing comes out. Unable to figure out what it does, he decides to risk pushing the big red button on its top. Thick, chunky, gluey blobs of poorly mashed potato fire out of the far end and plaster [b]Bluejay[/b] to the cornucopia! Fork's going to have to peel her away with a crowbar and take her [color=red]to the medical tent[/color] to get scrubbed up. Jordan, however, is keeping his mashed potato cannon. That warning from Knife seems to have done its job! A solid number of players have already been eliminated, and it's just the opening night. Nice work! I can't wait to find out what happens in the morning. That's several hours away, so let's focus our attention on a topic that's been plaguing Sornieth this Rockbreaker's Ceremony. As you all know, one of the best places to go to hunt for those special geodes is the Forgotten Cave. Unfortunately, polls show that most dragons can't remember how to get there.

Caribbean Sea, Belim, Adriel, and Bluejay have been knocked out.

As soon as Vermello was allowed to leave, he rushed towards the pile of potato chips and eyed the other two dragons coming towards the pile. "My first two victims, let's do this," he grumbled. He crashed into Belim and fought to get him away from everything. He focused too much on the fight to listen to what Adriel is saying. He noticed a ham out of the corner of his eye, flew towards it and twacked Belim over the head with it. His sharp hearing allowed him to notice Adriel coming. He spun around and threw it at her.

Satisfied with knocking the two out, he grabbed all the potato chips with some fish and ran off. "My goal is to win and I have already done well for my clan," he snickered a bit. He flew off to see what anyone else might be doing to try and secure another knockout to get these dragons out of the competition.
As soon as Vermello was allowed to leave, he rushed towards the pile of potato chips and eyed the other two dragons coming towards the pile. "My first two victims, let's do this," he grumbled.

Riku was starting to doze off when the Games began, leaning in what might've been the most uncomfortable way possible against the crystals on the walls. When the commotion began and Knife took the Floor, Riku rose shakily to her feet. She focused intently on the snapper's words, try to catch any helpful detail. There wasn't much by way of new information, but she took it all to heart. Only the best would even have a chance at meeting the Earthshaker; despite her worries, Riku was almost convinced that she could be the best.

When the secret door ground open, Riku knew that, despite the edge it could give her, the risk wasn't nearly worth the reward. This was further reinforced when a bright blue spiral tried to get an early start, only to be immediately eliminated for seeking an unfair advantage. This was rather cut-throat!

At the whistle, chaos broke out. Dragons charged the Cornucopia, the exits, each other. If she'd had any thoughts of running for the Cornucopia they were instantly vaporized by the pure desire to survive until the morrow. Pulling down her hat, she turned away to face the sun. And then she ran at the speed she could manage the easiest, charging out onto the Farms. While the others were squabbling for what the Cornucopia could offer them, she would get first pick of the more wild bounty. She could make a shelter, hunt and gather...do what it took to make it in the Hungry Games.

As she ran, a little flare of hope went off in her soul, a tiny spark of purpose and joy. She would have something to do, something productive to focus on. How long had it been since last she could manage even that? The corners of her mouth turned upwards in a faint grin. She might not make it far but she would try. That was all that mattered.


Golly, I've never heard a more Riku event in my life. Glad to at least have survived the Breadbath!

Stardust eyed the Cornucopia with pleasure. Seeing Carribean Sea have a false start made him snicker.

"One less competitor to go," he mumbled. As soon as the whistle blew, Stardust ran to the Cornucopia, pushing the others out of his way. Grabbing a basket with bread, he soon realized no one else was there with him. Every other dragon was looking at him, eyes wide with shock, perhaps? An olive-colored Pearlcatcher suddenly lunged, making an attempt to snatch his bread. Stardust quickly noticed and shrieked, "NO ONE TOUCHES MAH BREAD!!!!"

He smacked her on the nose with a bag of toasted bread crumbs, and blood soon spurted out of her snout. He quickly stuffed some other grains into his bag, amazed that bread could be so sharp. Sprinting away, he called back to her, "Hope you get better!" before shaking his head vigorously. Why was he wishing an opponent luck? Sprinting away, he hoped he would soon find Runi.

Agate had been ignoring the other dragons, deciding she would regret any friends she made here. [or, y'know, her player totally forgot about this thread until the starting ping] Now, the start of the round almost took her by surprise. She forced herself to ignore the fighting at the front of the cornucopia, and snuck around the back. Maybe there would be something good tucked away that no one would notice...

Yes! A bow and arrows! It wasn't a weapon she was familiar with, but then, what was? She hadn't even tried out her great-uncle's trident. But she didn't want to stick around, so she grabbed it and ran. How hard could it be? And if she couldn't use it, well, she was perfectly experienced enough with catching prey with teeth and claws. She definitely didn't want or need to use the arrows on other dragons, and she hoped she wouldn't see any others for a while.
