We ran and ran. We were lost. Lost and scared in the woods, practically begging to be snacked on by Terror birds, Allosaurus or Carnotaurus. It didn't help that the sky was getting darker by the minute.
"I told you going into Redwoods was a bad idea!" Josh complained.
"Look man, it was either that or the swamp." I told him.
"We should've just gone back and accepted our time as prisoners, in fact it would've been best if we stayed there in the first place rather than constantly get chased and lost." He complained.
"It doesn't even matter anymore, we go back now and they'll execute us. At least we actually have a chance of survi-"
Josh jumped. "Shush." He looked around the area, with a sweaty look on his face as if he just ran an hour long marathon. I force his hand off my mouth and checked a very suspicious looking bush. I equipped my spear and poked it, then a Terror Bird jumped out the brush.
"OH SH--, KILL IT, QUICK!"
I didn't have time to reply. I was busy fending off the Terror Bird with the spear, but it was too agile and I was too slow. I keep attempting to poke but it jumps back before I can strike. After 5 failed pokes, it finally rushed me down.
Josh stood there in fear before snapping back to reality and grabbing his spear, but another Terror Bird had jumped him and tore his gloves and shirt, both made from the hacked skin of dinosaurs we killed the other day.
I used my spear to block the Terror Bird that had rushed me, but it snapped it in two with ease. It tore my shirt and cut through my skin like a knife and butter. The blood spilled, and the Terror Bird tried to scratch my face, but I managed to dodge it just in time. While it was repositioning itself, I took advantage of the broken spear and shoved one piece into its chest. It screeched in pain and backed up as its own blood soaked its feathers. Soon enough, it falls down and panics as it gives me a quick glance. I could see the regret and humiliation in its eyes. It tried to get up and escape as fast as it could, but I wouldn't allow it. I struck the next piece into its brain, putting it out of its misery, and instantly stopping the pained squawks. I pull both parts of the spear out and throw them at the Terror Bird which was trying to get to Josh as he blocked with his spear. It was dead the next second.
Me and Josh took a breath and tried to get ourselves together, but not soon did another come. Luckily, it was chasing a poor deer and had zero interest in us. It didn't even looked at us, it was too focused.
Despite that, Josh still threw his spear and hit the bird's body. It pierced through its back and made the bird instantly fall back.
"Why did you do that?" I questioned.
"That nasty beaked-jerk would've still came after us." He replied as he pulled out his spear. "It's getting really dark and I'm getting hungry, so let's take care o' these bodies and set up camp."
We harvested the meat and hacked their skin to repair our clothes. We grabbed the materials we needed and began searching.
The first place we found was a remote area filled to the brim with herbivores, but the problems was that some of them, such as the Trikes, could have been territorial and stomped the camp, so we went to the next spot.
Another choice was a cramped cave with an entrance so small, not even a Terror Bird could fit. Unfortunately, the cave turned out to have poisonous gas because when we went in the entrance, the air immediately began to sink away. It had horrible smell, and caused us both immense coughing and so we had to abandon it immediately.
Now it was so dark that torches didn't do much in terms of light. They had very little sight of what's even in front of them, and worse part is that they heard a Rex roar nearby.
They couldn't see, and searching would have become increasingly difficult and dangerous, with no idea where they're going, they could end up in the swamp or in a river with piranha and a Spino. So they had to set camp under a peaceful little tree. They began to make their sleeping bags and put wood on the fire to cook the meat, only problem is that it wouldn't light up.
It frustrated me more and more, and I couldn't think of what I was doing wrong. I was scraping two rocks against each other the hardest I could, it would spark but no fire would come up.
"Come on, stupid rocks! Get the fire going so we can eat!" Apparently, fire was a deterrent against wild animals and most dinosaurs, so it was CRUCIAL to get the fire going.
Josh snatched the rocks out my hands.
"You doofus, you're scraping the wrong way. The sparking faces towards your shirt, it's a good thing there was no fire."
He managed to start the fire I was struggling to light up with ease, and then we put the meat on the campfire, and waited for it to cook.
We picked up camp in the morning and went to go search to find a safer, warmer place to set up. We took the cooked meat and some wood with us, but not the campfire.
I HATE THESE THINGS I WAS HUNTING THEM FOR A PURSUIT AND ONE RAPTOR JUMPED AT ME AND WHILST THAT THOSE THINGS KILLED MY BEST FLYER AND FINISHED ME OFF. I spawned back at my base and never managed to get all my gear back 😭 (RIP Sari. My forever best friend and flyer)
Blood swept across the battlefeild as the terror birds ran into the fight. The dodos didnt stand a chance against the survivors, but the terror birds might. They ran into the raging war, all of them from all the different ARKs came. The ones from Scorched Earth charged head-first as the ones from Valgrueo jumped from the trees and boulders, gliding and striking from above. The suvivors called for reinforcements as the terror bird king, a Raptor, screeched across The Island and called the Dodorex and Dodowyvern (the dodowyvern came with the terrorbirds from Scorched Earth) along with some raptors and more dodos. The dodorex came smashing through the trees at the Dodo side of the battle, reaching the feild where the battlefeild was and roared. It stomped through them and reached the humans. It blew fire across several tribes of survivors and killed many. The dodowyvern flew out of its hiding spot behing a towering rock formation and soared across, putting a shadow over the watching survivors. It attacked from above, leaving only a few behind.
The raptors and dodos rushed down a nearby hill and crashed into the battle. They wiped out the rest of the survivors quickly. The battle was done. The war is over. The dodos, raptors,terror birds and the big reinforcements all cheered happily. The dodos finally got revenge.
I hope you all liked the Story of the Dodo War. As always thank you for reading.
Once a poune a time i tamed a sarcho (Lvl 9) and named him Limbo i got my raptors and Limbo to follow me to get hide wood and fiber once we came apon the redwoods i put them to neutal if something badhappend and a got AFK for dinner once i came back there was a terrror bird SQUAD RUSHING TOWARDS US AND THE F***** TERROR DODOS KILLED AND DISIMBOULED LIMBO but my raptors killed them all they accidently knoked out one so i tamed it and lvled it up to lvl 60+ and we upteen its stam and attack dmg and named it Limbos friend
I was trying to tame a terror bird cuz i my other terror bird got killed i saw its torpor was draining fast so i went to get the biotoxin from my base AND THE BIRD WAS GONE IT WAS ALMOST MAX LEVEL this also happened to me when taming a carno so im on mobile idk what happened but i think it despawned ark mobile never gets updates so im probs gonna quit when i get a giga
Once me and my pteradon land for a supply crate at night. It was so dark that i could not see anything suddenly a pack of this mfs like maybe 10 or more came and they pushed me so far from my pteradon somehow i managed to kill them all with my sword but my best flying dino died and i had to stay there for like whole night until morning...i got my pteradon saddle back from his corp and requested another from home and now i stay away from this mfs
“Ahhhhh” I Screamed as is ran at me! Running as fast as I could I narrowly escaped or so I thought… the creature “What was that?” I thought I hadn’t seen it. I saw it still chasing “terror bird” I thought as scaled the mountain.
It was my first time in the redwoods I thought hey maybe u can chop the trees (u can't they r huge...) So I took out my axe and try to get wood I got none... I saw to my left and saw a pack of big dodo(it wasn't) they were charging at me i thought they r probably running from dilos so i just walked in the forest.... I also saw another pack of 5 big ol dodos and they were charging at me the rest is history.....
I’m so concerned- I know these spawn in the redwoods and I made a base near the rocky island at the beach. South of the island. You know where I mean. Everyone starts there. I’m level 21 and I was going to tame a sarco. Whilst I was just outside the swamp near the river. This white bird charged at me. I ran away and quickly equipped by bow. Knocked it out and since I forgot to bring meat (would’ve been bad if I did find a sarco) I fed it my cooked meat and gave it 20 bio toxin. I accidentally hit a level 80 trike whilst harvesting a para for meat and had to kill two with tranq arrows (such fun, defo recommend it XD) Then I saw a raptor eating a trike right next to me and I had no arrows so I was like NOPE- I ran to my base which is that island with the rocks that you can build under. Took my trike called green bean, took some bio toxin and meat from my diplo (he is my storage Dino bc he has 1k weight) and I charged back not expecting the bird to still be alive bc of the raptor. THE THING WAS STILL ALIVE SOMEHOW??? So I leaped off green bean boi and fed the terror bird bio toxin (his torpor was SUPER low) and fed him meat and just chilled with my green bean. I saw two barrys in the river and was ready to fight. I tamed the terror bird up and named it albino bc it was fully white. Ran home and sat wondering. WHY WAS THERE A TERROR BIRD NOWHERE NEAR THE REDWOODS? WHATS NEXT, GRIFFINS ROAMING AROUND THE SWAMP!?!?
I took my first breath of dusty air it’s not as fresh and pure like the island air but, not as gross and pungent as the aberration air. I looked around to get idea of my surroundings. I went to chop down some trees and harvest some berries and fiber but, most importantly find WATER the source of life! A small oasis! I sip the wonderful water from the pond. I look over I see an oil bug I head over the collect the precious oil when out behind the rock a terror bird jumps out at me!
