Uoi'Nota Hunting Expedition
2nd Shop Bday RP Event
Winter months bring hardships for many creatures, and Ikal'Daka are no exception, despite being better suited to survival than some of their lesser wolven kin. Food is scarce, and hunting parties often range far from their dens, tracking whatever they may find through the thick snow. Those who hunt on their own may find themselves gaunt with hunger before too long, unable to bring down the larger prey the Ikal often prefer. Subsisting on smaller prey is possible, of course, but barely scraping by by the standards of their meals.
Hunger is not the only thing the winter brings to the fore. Other hunters in much the same predicament surface, willing and capable to steal a kill from a weakened Ikal if the chance arises. Snow covers much of the territories, making it harder to move without falling victim to one of the Ikal's predators- those few monsters the scouting group saw on their way to the Princess' castle last winter seem to have multiplied, the water serpents making river crossing dangerous, the glacial snow creature lurking in the snow drifts, ready to leap upon any unwary Ikal.
Indeed, in the cold season it almost seems worth it to bend to the Alchemist's will, for food and shelter are strong lures.
