This is CowGrrl's and ederob's RP The vast, rolling prairies and treacherous mountain passes of Eagle's Den is home to a wild horse herd made from horses naturally wild or horses who escaped or were turned out by their owners. Eagle's Den, sitting between the mountains of Montana and Wyoming, is where no human wants to venture. The herd gets by on good grass, and the small streams and water falls that trickle on the low areas of the land. Eagle's Den is a treacherous place for humans and horses alike. Horses come around every year to join the herd. Since there is already a lead stallion, the stallions wanting to join the herd are drove out. Sometimes a stubborn stallion stays, and mates with one of the herd's mares. Life is rough and sometimes horses don't survive. The horses may be sure-footed but they still may fall. The horses may have plentiful food and water but they still may starve. Making it worse, humans are starting to venture in to the herd's territory and are capturing and shooting horses. Will you be lucky, or not? Rules: Myself and ederob run this RP- What we say goes! We are not going to be dictators but we would really appreciate you following these rules! All BYC rules apply. No words with God in it. When mating, don't go into a description. Just say something along the lines of "he mounted her" or "they mated" and you'll be good. Normal gestation periods for mares are about 11 months. In this RP if your character is going to foal, the gestation period can be for however long you like, but don't make it any less than 5 days. And when a mare is going to foal, don't go into description about Realisticness please! No super powers! You can't dodge every attack. When fighting, if a wound you plan on giving another character is bigger than a scratch (ex. broken bone) check with the person first. You can dodge 1 out of every 5 attacks. No instant healing- Wounds like a scratch or cut should take a minimum of 1 day to heal and a broken, dislocated or sprained limb should take minimum 5 days to heal. To prove you read these rules put "cake" in the "Other" section of the form.
