1.  About

Grimrun is a horse stable and reconstructed farm built for the sole purpose of furthering Salsola's breeding program. The animals who make up this populous are pack animals, but not all are trained to work – many exist for the singular purpose of furthering Salsola's already thriving herd.

The barn itself is fashioned much in the style of Salsola's previous project, Marrgerd, though a larger emphasis was placed on pasture placement and agricultural growth.

Horses are turned out in the pastures during the day, though are brought in overnight. Stallions, pregnant or nursing mares, or animals with medical issues are restricted to the corrals.

The artwork featured on this page comes courtesy of Alaine. <3

2.  Pauson Horse

A personal project of previous Boss Salvia Eternity, an organized breeding group was carefully selected in order to craft her vision of an “ideal horse”...

(More information coming soon.)

3.  Communal Animals

The horses kept in Marrgerd are owned by the pack, and Salsola's most valuable possessions. Members are permitted to use them for personal use, though because of their unique and identifiable looks, most of these horses are obviously “Salsolan” by design. Their worth is impressed upon those who do handle the animals.

If you are unsure about using a horse, please send a message to the leadership!

3.1  Rules

  • These communal animals may be used for any purposes and by any member in or above the Central ranks.
  • Note that trading, injuring, etc. these animals is not barred: you must discuss these with leadership.
  • Other communal horses and all livestock are stabled within Marrgerd.
  • Salsola adheres to the Tagging System -- pay attention to the tags, as they designate what an item can be used for.

3.2  Breeding
