Seasonal Skill Prompts



Each character can only complete ONE prompt per season, and can be completed either in a solo post or in a group thread. You cannot claim these posts for other skill points! Please note that as long as you complete the objectives, you're free to be creative with your posts and have some fun with these prompts!

For solo posts, you must complete the entire prompt in one post. Of course, you can use these posts as thread starters and continue the thread as usual, but no other skills may be claimed by you from that thread.

For group threads, the word count is cumulative and will be counted over all participants. However, participants must be ACTIVELY trying to complete the skill prompt for their words to count. Note that group threads have a maximum of 3 allowed participants unless otherwise specified.

Spring, Year 21 Seasonal Skill Prompts

Fighting

Prey: Wolves are used to doing the hunting, not being the hunted... and especially not by an angry herbivore!
Goal: Face off against an angry herbivore who just won't leave you alone!
Word Count: 800 (Solo) or 1500 (Group)
Location: Anywhere!
Tasks:
1. You find yourself being followed or discovered by an angry herbivore.
2. Fight! Is fighting this non-predator different than fighting the usual combatant?
3. Make a plan and see it through. Do you fight them head on? Do you try to ambush them?

Reward: 30 Fighting Skill Points

Hunting

Fight or Flight: Often, a hunt doesn't end with a stealth kill. What happens when you're found out mid-hunt?
Goal: Try to stealthily hunt something, but you get caught- figure out how to proceed!
Word Count: 800 (Solo) or 1500 (Group)
Location: Anywhere!
Tasks:
1. Begin a hunt!
2. Shoot! You get caught! Where did things go wrong?

Reward: 30 Hunting Skill Points

Healing

Spring Sneezes Bring...?: With pollen and weather changes, many wolves are feeling under the weather.
Goal: Diagnose or Treat a wolf with seasonal allergies/cold!
Word Count: 800 (Solo) or 1500 (Group)
Location: Anywhere
Tasks:
1. Find someone who is dealing with seasonal allergies or a seasonal cold
2. Go over your/their symptoms, and deduce what might be causing them.
3. Come up with a solution! Though it might not be a cure, surely there are things that can help? Or do we have to move the whole pack to avoid the pollen?

Reward: 30 Healing Skill Points

Navigation

Where the Worm Glows: Oh, worm!
Goal: Find those rare glow worms!

Tasks:
1. Some worms are just worms, but others glow!
