The Rite of Suitability

The Rite of Suitability, or ROS, is a passage a Rukaan must complete before they are able to breed. It is a short series of two images following your choice of given prompts that, when completed, will award your Rukaan with a Breeding Certificate. When your Rukaan has that on its import, it can breed!

Breeding Slots
All Rukaans start out with a set amount of slots, or number of times it can be bred. They can gain more by gaining ranks.
> Bulls start out with 10 slots.
> Cows start out with 6 slots.

Image Requirements
> Handler is not required unless stated by the prompt.
> The Rukaan must be at least 75% visible, and at least a simple background is required.
> Literature minimum is 1200 words.
> Up to 2

Rite of Suitability Prompts

You must pick two of the prompts to complete.

1. There's been a rockslide on the slopes of a nearby mountain. Depict your Rukaan exploring the tumble of stones and learning the newly remodeled terrain.

2. Your Rukaan has stumbled across and orphaned calf in the woods. Does your Rukaan help the calf survive, or abandon it to nature?

3. Your Rukaan must show it has the traits of all Rukaan. Show your Rukaan participating in a Halter or Liberty show or training, observed by judges.

4. A Rukaan in the wild must compete for the right to mate. Show your Rukaan battling of facing off against another.

5. Show your Rukaan pulling a cart, sled, sleigh, or plow, showing off their strength. (Harness required, vehicle not necessary)

6. Show your Rukaan as a calf, finding its legs or discovering the world.

7. Your Rukaan has been tacked/saddled for the first time- depict its reaction to the foreign feeling.

8. Your Rukaan must be able to live in a group environment. Show your Rukaan interacting peacefully with another one (must be an official, uploaded Rukaan).

9. A Rukaan must have exceptional endurance and be able to travel long distances. Show your Rukaan on a long adventure through the uncharted wilderness, with its rider or without.


Once both your ROS entries are done, submit them to the Rites of Suitability folder in the group gallery.

Hey there I had a quick question. Would it be possible to sell my rukaan custom for the same price I bought it for? I ordered one a while ago but unfortunately I don't feel like I can click with this species very well and would hate for it to be wasted.

I'm new to this. I was wanting to get a custom to get my first Rukaan, but I wanted to know if there was a 'takeback' rule for lack activity with using my Rukaan when I get one.

Nope! We will not confiscate your Ruk : >
magrunemoon Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2017
That's good to hear. 

Also, I'm a traditional artist. Is it possible to get help designing my Custom Rukaan?

There is a journal where you can request for volunteers to design it, check our blog!
