    I am Clydus, steward of the Blastoid and caretaker of his lands. I would like to invite you all to the plains to the west of your great city or Arete to visit our tent, the newly anoited Hall of the Thundering Hooves.


    This is a place a place to come for training and entertainment in the ways of the hoof. The horses are still running wild now but we hope to tame them and run Chariot races!!!!!

    While here make sure to visit the Abbott of the Horses, Pat123 of the Brothers Material. He has looking to found a following of brothers who wish to study the ways of the horse and care for the heard.

    Come one, come all to see the beaty of these creatures that Giruvegan blessed us with.

    I'm in -- strength 4, agility 5, horsemanship 6.

    Interesting that the horsemanship doesn't factor into the race...

    I just completed the collected chronicled history of Arete, "The In-Triad" (See main forum citizen registry), written on 100 pig-hides, so I hope that I can be given a horse as an award for this, now that I finally earnt it. I am also a descendant of Prochon, that discovered our lands barefooted some thousands of years ago.

    I hearby gift Night-Strider, A surefooted and powerfull stallion to Provolution the Sage as a gift for his efforts in recording the history of this land, and the aid his ancestors gave to The Blastoid during the long march of the Prochon warband.

    Here are the steeds available for the race. The order of picking is al follows.

    Duke Blackstone
    Dave Shack
    Lord Civius
    Vandal Warlord
    Civ Playah
    Aluminum Knight

    You may either announce your steed choices in the thread or PM me. If you are lower on the list, make sure to give me an ordered list, as the first choice may be taken. You will have until Monday 0:00 GMT to select your steed, if you do not do so then others behind you will move in front of you in line. The race will begin Tuesday morning with 4 turns, representing quarters of the race. Each quarter will take 1 day.

    During each quarter you may chose to hang back (reducing speed and conserving endurance), race in the pack (moderate speed and endurance) or burst ahead (high speed and costing endurance). If you doi not respond I will assume you are racing in the pack.

    Stats
    Speed- How fast the horse can run
    Endurance- How long the Horse can run fast
    Temper- How difficulty the horse is to handle. The higher the temper the more likely one is to fall off of it.

    Agility plays the largest role in staying on the horse
    Strength has an effect on staying on and speed as one can control the horse better

    Stallion
    Speed- 8
    Endurance – 7
    Temper - 8

    Speed – 2

    Horse sense determined order that you pick the horses. It represents how well you can judge the qualoity of the horse. You had the highest horse sense, thus you get to pick first, the best horse. It does not effect your ability to judge the state of the horse during the race, this would be to complicatecd fore me. I will give all riders and equal indication of how tired there horse is.

    This game has started with the picking of the horses. SO it is to late to join the race. It will run through next week. The week after that i plan to start a second one, I am thinking of a contest to help train our new Horse Archers, how to ride a horse and fire a bow at the same time. So check in at the end of next week.

    I was planning on running an Archery tournament in Warlords City soon. Perhaps we can bring our 2 tourneys together. The First Aretan Festival or something of that nature.
