Aster's Fields Map

by San

1.  Aster's Fields

Aster's fields is home to most of Krokar's livestock, horses, and other animals. It stretches over grassy hillsides and burbling streams, with forests in the northern areas for the caribou. The fields are equipped with a barn, chicken coop, and stables, which are all located a short distance away from Fiskebyn, and regularly maintained wooden fencing marks the perimeter of the enclosures.

Raptors and other avians can be found roosting in the Western Watchtower.

This page lists the Communal Animals that reside in Aster's Field. If looking to add your own companions, check out the Personal Animals page.


2.  Rules

2.1  Updating

Feel free to update your own animals, or post in the Krokar Maintenance thread if you're not comfortable updating the Wiki. Just be sure to include the information noted for each animal. Please remember to remove your animal or ask us to do it if it is no longer with the pack.

2.2  General Rules

  • Communal animals are meant to be used by the whole pack. Go ahead and add more if your character would like to do so! Just remember that if you add an animal as communal that it does belong to the pack, not to the individual player anymore.
  • Use of animals is highly encouraged. We ask that you do not permanently injure any of the animals beyond small scars and that you keep these instances to a minimum. Killing them is not allowed. For limits on horses and caribou abilities, please refer to their sections below. Animals cannot yet be claimed as personal companions, although this will be allowed in the future!
  • Trade is determined on a per-animal basis. In general, animals cannot be traded.

2.3  Horses

It can be assumed that all new joiners who have a horse are told these rules upon joining.

Residences and Care

  • Due to lack of resources to care for constantly stalled animals, all communal animals are kept out in the pasture unless they are injured or the weather is extremely bad. Constantly stalled horses need a lot of grain, therefore characters are highly encouraged to allow their horses to roam with the rest of the herds in the pastures.
  • Stallions must be kept separate from mares. There are small paddocks that hold one stallion each and they are taken out for exercise.
  • Pack NPCs do some work with upkeep, however if your character owns a horse, he or she is expected to contribute.

Abilities

  • In general, draft horses can pull approximately twice their weight, sometimes more. This means that the communal draft horses can pull quite a lot, so use them!

2.4  Caribou

It can be assumed that all new joiners are told these rules.

Residences and Care

  • Caribou are meant to be outside, although they do have a lean-to type of shelter they can go into if they choose. They don't have access to the stable.

Abilities

  • Characters that weigh more than 100lbs cannot ride the caribou.
  • Caribou are able to pull approximately twice their weight, but on average, can only carry about 90lbs, although larger animals may carry a little bit more.
