The Chocobo Farm
The Chocobo farm is a well-maintained area out in the countryside. It allows the chocobos to have a place to stay and eat, and a place for the public to come if they with to pet one, go for a ride, or purchase one.
People can have their chocobos stabled here as well, as there is plenty of space. Some of the chocobos owned by Bill himself sometimes 'accidentally' escape the farm and explore the town and beach, allowing the public a chance to see them and follow or ride them back to the farm, where more information can be gotten about them. Strangely enough, none of the privately owned chocobos ever seem to escape...

The Chocobo Races
Chocobo Racing takes place at the newly completed racetrack on Fantasy Island, near the Chocobo Farm. While most of these racers are from various worlds, some of them are from the Farm itself. Much money can be won not just from the betters but also from the racers themselves.
There are four races each day there is an event going on at the racetrack. Currently the racing authority allows races to have at least four, but no more then six, chocobos in the race.Races can be one track length or one and a half track lengths.
Here are the chocobos that most often compete at the chocobo racetrack, along with their riders, and betting odds:
1. Garlin - Yellow Chocobo. Rider: Shevan. Odds: 10 - 1
2. Segil - Green Chocobo. Rider: Pretim. Odds: 7 - 2
3. Warlin - Blue Chocobo. Rider: Valmose. Odds: 6 - 1
4. Bad Luck Willy - Yellow Chocobo. Rider: Lucky. Odds: 20 - 1
5. Shiva - Blue Chocobo. Rider: Ansep. Odds: 5 - 1
6. Ifrit - Red Chocobo. Rider: Alina. Odds: 5 - 2
7. Zeke - Gold Chocobo. Rider: Faora. Odds: 3 - 2
8. Paltrina - Black Chocobo. Rider: Marrow. Odds: 4 - 1
9. Dalsom - Yellow Chocobo. Rider: Masin. Odds: 9- 1
10. Darsuke - Green Chocobo. Rider: Lisa. Odds: 9 - 2
To determine who will compete in this race, the GM will roll the number of competitors d10, so if there are four racers there will be a 4d10 roll. Duplicate numbers are re-rolled.
A chocobo to reach the finish line must roll at least x number of points in order to finish the race. A white roll gives 1 point, a green 2 points, a yellow 3 points, and a red 5 points. Here is what is rolled for each color chocobo:
This system allows for the rarer chocobos to have an advantage, without making it impossible for the 'weaker' colors to win. Do note more then one word can be rolled at a time, so to roll for a yellow, blue, yellow, gold race you would !roll typical excellent typical amazing .
If when the race is over, if there is a tie for placing, ties are decided by
1. Who has the most of the top color. ( If one chocobo has 1 red roll and the other has 2, the one with two wins. )
2. If they have equal numbers, the higher average wins. ( 89 and 87 would beat out 93 and 74, for example )
3. If the average is the same, this continues on to the next color down.
It is possible for a player to compete in the chocobo races if they so wish. However, to do such first they must earn a license.
While anyone can rent a chocobo at the farm, competing with one requires a license that states you are trained in the knowledge of how to ride a chocobo and race them safely. Licenses can be gotten through Chocobo Bill, who is authorized by the Association to give out licenses.
Rookie racers can rent out a yellow chocobo from the farm for competing in races or for practice. As they improve in skill they can compete with other colors, or even acquire a chocobo of their own, which can be stabled at the farm if they do not have their own facilities. In addition, those who race at least five times can earn the 'Chocobo Rider' skill, giving them a +1CS to rolls when they race. If they fail learning the skill they must participate in at least 1 more race before trying again.
