As the illusion of the genesis wore off HLNA sent you to a strange lost island as you landed a small orange creature spread its wings it went up to you as you look around you see a dead artroplura you feed it chitin it seems to befriend you this could be a good start……….
A bell rung, signaling the day before the turkey hunt. Men and women alike were in their houses, cleaning their guns and practicing. Their mounts, vicious wyverns and gigas preparing for the hunt. Everybody wanted to be the one to kill the super turkey for the feast. One in particular wanted to kill it more than all. He wanted to bring honor to his family name, and what bstter way to do that than killing the super turkey for the feast?
Just tamed my first Sinomacrops and named it Monarch. Where I tamed Monarch (And the best place to tame Sinomacrops in my opinion) was at the very bottom center of the island, in that ravine with a river at the bottom. It’s a gorgeous place to set up a hub, and the Sinomacrops are EVERYWHERE. I just put chitin in my last slot, ran toward him, waited until I saw hearts, stopped, crouched, waited for him to fly to me, and BOOM, I got Monarch. They’ll fly off after you feed them, run after them (Don’t get too close), and wait for them to come to you again. DO NOT MOVE WHEN IT’S FLYING UP TO YOU.
Drake's equus galloped through the thicket of trees while Drake scanned for a super turkey. None were in this thicket. Drake whistled for his equus to gallop to the beach. There! Right on the edge of the beach was a super turkey. Drake pulled out his rifle and shot it in the head. The turkey gobbled and ran towards him. He shot it until it came too close and his equus backed up. He could see blood dripping from his feathers, it was obviously wounded. He was about to take another shot, but nothing came out, his ammo clip was empty. He searched the saddle for the saddle bag, but it wasnt there. He looked down in panic, and saw cut straps. Someone had sabotaged him.
Drake climbed onto his equus and linned up for the hunt. He could hear people whispering things like:
"Why did he pick an equus?"
"Who rides an equus to kill a super turkey?"
"He's going to bring shame to his family."
These insults had no affect on him, for his equus was specially breed for this. His family had taken the equus with the most powerful kick, and an equus with the fastest gallop, and breed them. His equus was their strongest offspring. A trumpet blew, and Wyverns took to the sky, Gigas stomped, and Direwolfs howled. Drake took off in a gallop, outrunning ever other creature there. The hunt had begun.
Drake sat down at the table where the feast was to be served. He looked around the table and saw all of the happy familys and close friends. It all warmed his heart. A bell rung and waitresses started coming out with platers and glasses. They went around the table and placed plates of food infront of each person. Once everybody had a plate of food infront of them, the announcer said: "This turkey was hunted by Drake William, everybody clap for them!" Everybody clapped and looked at the announcer. "May the feast, Begin!" Everybody devoured their food. Once the feast ended, all of the plates were clean and everybody was full. Once again the night bell rung and everybody went to their homes.
After the feast, honor was brought to Drake's family. At the time of his first hunt, he was 18. Years later, drake got married, and lived a happy life. Drake and his equus went on many more hunts, and won most of them. His equus died of old age when Drake was 40. Drake stopped going on hunts once his horse passed, and retired. Drake died at the age of 86. He had 4 kids and a wife when he died. He had a nice funeral and was remembered as the champion hunter of the tribe.

Drake calmed himself down and tried to think of a plan. He rode past the turkey and his horse kicked it in the head. He rode past it again and again, until it fell to the ground. He slide off of his horse and grabbed the turkey. He had done it! He had killed a super turkey! It wasnt over yet though. He still had to be the first one back. He strapped the turkey the the saddle and rode off in the direction of the town. Almost there! Just as he was about to go into the town, a grappling hook shot down and snatched the turkey. He looked where it came from, and saw a rider on a giga had snatched his turkey.
"Who is that fellow on the giga?" An announcer asked.
"James Wilson" the rider replied.
"Well james wilson, we do not allow the stealing of turkeys, return the turkey to the man on the equus and be a fair sport." The announcer ordered.
James tossed the turkey to Drake and rode off. Drake ran into the town and was declared winner. People cheered and whistled, suprised that the underdog won. The sun fell down into the horizon and the night bell rang. Everybody went back to their houses, ready for the feast tommorow.
