    ♠ THEME ♠

    Concord Dawn was known for its harsh environments. It bred a hardy people, arguably tougher even than those born and raised on its sister planet Mandalore. There were more extreme environments on planets like Hoth and Mustafar. But Concord Dawn did not have a single trait that made it more daunting than others. Its extremes were still not to be overlooked or passed off like trivial dangers.

    The War Councilor, Koil Solus stepped across the snow covered rock as they made their way through a mountain pass. The northern reaches of Concord Dawn were colder than he remembered. Today he was wearing an insulant undersuit instead of thermal to help deter the dangers of the extreme colds. A long grey cloak, similar in terms of camouflage to the snow and ice covered stone helped as well.

    Beside the Silent Badger was his quadruped companion, Archie. The dire badger padded along, running a head every few meters before stuffing his snout into some snow or clawing at patches of ice to find some possible traces of prey. Archie did not seem to mind the cold.

    Joining Archie and Koil was also Dalyn. The fellow member of House Solus was cheery in comparison to most members of the Clan but certainly relative to his Alor. They had a ways ahead of them and there were still in dangerous territory. Wolves, mountain cats, the elements, and more were a danger to them. But they were on a trip to deliver some records to an old hermit that would keep the information safe until long after Koil had died.

    After a few steps the badger stopped. The hair on the back of Archie's neck stood up and subtle growl caused Koil to halt heir forward progress. The dire badger turned to Koil giving him a knowing look and then made several small actions that told Koil there was no immediate danger but soon enough the two Mandalorians and accompanying badger would be confronted by some wild animals. "What's your wager, wolves or cats? Probably at least five or six I bet." Either option was not going to be an easy thing to fight. Just like its people, Concord Dawn bred dangerous fauna.


    irst roll is to see if Archie detects any dangers with his super smell (Rousing Success)

    Shivering beneath the thick woollen poncho and the grey cloak wrapped around his body, Dalyn smiled fondly beneath his helmet at Archie in remembrance before turning to address Koil. "5 credits and a tihaar back home says it's wolves. The howling of the damn wind is a sign as my da would say, mark my words. A whole pack of the slathering beas..." his rant faded into silence as the distinct yowl of the mountain cat echoed through the mountain pass. "We didn't shake on it," he weakly defended before reaching for his signature hammer and a pistol.

    Born and raised on Concord Dawn, Dalyn was more than familiar with the dangers of the beasts that called it home. Mountain cats were usually solitary hunters, though they'd been known to form loose packs with others of their kind when conditions worsened. A shower of falling pebbles and snow to the left of the pass snapped his attention upwards in time to spot a pair of cats preparing to pounce. Behind him another yowl sounded, and Dalyn turned to place his back to Koils, blaster snapping up to fire at the third cat approaching them from behind.

    "Just once I'd like you to bring me somewhere where there isn't something trying to kill us, vod. Just the once."

    Dalyn was always ready for a good time. If that meant sharing a drink behind enemy lines or starting up a friendly wager it was usually Dalyn bringing it up. But Koil did not verbally accept the gamble. He was too focused on searching for any sign of threat and so just grunted in response. It looked like Marauder had picked the wrong beast to expect though resulting in him quickly taking back the bet. The War Councilor smiled for a heartbeat and draw one of his quickdraws.

    The wind picked up and brought a wall of high speed snow and cold wind. The cross wind was hard enough at this range but this was probably not the first time these cats had fought prey that could shoot. The Silent Badger's pistol shots on the nearest one missed, scoring the rock as it the others moved around, not stopping their advance like the predators they were.


    shoot the first one (mild fail)
