Preface:
Wind Reach is a survivalist colony. Everyday is a battle, every winter a war, for the Endals to hunt enough meat to keep the citizens alive. Despite their best efforts, sometimes handfuls of Dek regularly die during the sparse cold season.

The Archery ranges are the very heart and soul of Wind Reach. Hunting is a number one priority so there are several ranges to suit each caste, taste and season. Everyone is expected to show complete dedication and unwavering concentration while training within all of these ranges. Not even deks are exempt from bettering themselves for the sake of the community. Hunting is the number one ranked activity in order to keep Wind Reach as a well fed community and archery is highly encouraged for all. Don’t wait for an invitation—get out there and practice already!

Description:
Due to Wind Reach's reliance on the Endals' hunt to provide a bulk of the city's food, archery is a very important part of the city's dynamic. To keep the elite caste of hunters properly stocked, and to prevent even a chance of mass starvation from lack of preparation, the Valintar has organized an entire cavern to be fully stocked with emergency arrows, bows, and targets for the archery ranges. Since active theft of the supplies could not help the Dek directly, the storage room is left unguarded save for a single, trustworthy Chiet left to guard the open cavern and its wares. Runner Deks are sent daily to the Storage Cavern from the active Ranges to fetch the supplies. And though it is not monitored the Dek are actually given their own little corner, in a back, badly lit, niche of the storage cavern to practice their archery (in the little free time they have.) And because the Dek are usually too poor to afford their own bows and arrows, they are even allotted the worst of the bows and arrows to borrow - tools the Chiet wouldn't even touch. Very few other caste members really know about the Dek's secret niche, but the ones that do rarely visit do to the shoddy environment; if they do visit, it is because they want to get away. The niche has three, cramped targets on the far wall, with hay and cloth that have not been replaced for many seasons. While left with the meager scraps, the Dek appreciate what they can get with their lot. That and they even sometimes sneak a quick use of the Endals' bows when they are sure no one is around - but that's just a rumor.
