Strays

General

- Strays fall into two general categories - standard and event. Standard strays can be discovered during city based explorations. Event strays may pop up during special events, such as season events and fairs!
- Strays are special staff designed Hounds on the stray lineart. 
- Standard strays must be encounted via explorations before you can attempt to befriend them.
- Strays require food in an attempt to befriend. 
- Each stray has different favourite foods, which makes befriending them more likely. 
- You may continue to attempt to befriend a stray up to 3 times a day until it has been successfully befriended. 
- Stray results are publically rolled on our forum.

Stray Submissions

 - Submissions must follow the literature or visual art guide. 
- Stray submissions are generally considered explorations. Some event strays may not, please check the details on each event stray to confirm. 
- Standard stray attempts should be submitted as an explore in the city the stray is located in, and should follow that prompt.
- Event strays should have befriending attempts submitted to their specific prompt.
- All stray submissions must include a depiction of the stray in question.
- All stray submissions must include a viable treat. Each stray will have a forum post or prompt that lists useable treats.
- Submission must follow any details from the exploration prompt they are submitting to. (Eg. specific background requirements.)
- Hounds attached to the submission must be owned by the submitter. 
- Hounds being rolled must be attached to the submission. 
- Only bonuses listed on the form will be rolled for.


Collaborations

- Up to three players may collaborate on strays. All collaborators must have access to the stray.
- If all handlers are depicted in the submission all handlers may enter up to their own hound handling limits.
- If 0, 1 or 2 handlers are depicted in the submission only those player's handler's hound handling limit and bonuses may be used.
