The tiger, known to the Vendhyans as the Vaaghasan, is closely linked to the Tamarin’s Tigers faction. To be eligible to even attempt to ride a tiger, the player must first become a member of Tamarin’s Tigers.
The first task that the player must undertake is to find a worthy companion. This is both a rite to prove oneself as one of Tamarin’s men, and also the rite in which the player gains their very own tiger. Players must first find a tiger den. They must then remove all of their armour and weapons and kill the Tigress using nothing but their bare hands. The reward for this quest is a tiger cub that will follow the player.
Now that the player has their companion, they will need to grow them into the predator they were always meant to be. This will take some time and effort on behalf of the player. They must start with small prey and work their way up to some of the toughest beasts that can still be eaten.
Soon, the cub has grown into an awkward adolescent. It knows how to eat and even how to use its teeth to kill, but it knows nothing of subtlety. Now it must learn how to stalk like a beast in the woods. In Vendhya, the Tamarin’s Tigers train their animals using some of the spirits that they summon from their own mythology. But here… there is only one choice. The Vendhyans have heard of a white tiger spirit, revered by the Khitan as the very epitome of grace and virtue. The player must speak with some local priests to learn how to summon the animal spirit. Once the spirit is summoned, the player and their tiger pet must follow it on the hunt, and remain undetected.
The young tiger has learned how to hunt and stalk its prey, but now it must be taught the lesson of survival as a man. Not all creatures can be eaten, not all creatures can be avoided. Sometimes men simply fight and kill for the sheer need of it. Such bloodlust is not natural for an animal – it must be taught at the hands of a master.
Tamarin judges that the man and the vaaghasan are as one. He will be the judge to see if the bond is now strong enough that the vaaghasan will consent to let them ride. But first, there is the matter of the saddle. The saddle of a Tiger is not something that can be purchased – it must be assembled by the one who wishes to ride.
Once a player has fully trained their tiger mount, they will be able to use it to stealth around playfields without being seen.
The vaaghasan is the mount with the fastest sprint speed in the game. This emulates the explosive power of the tiger over short distances.
