OOC Hey! It's Ruki! :D Been workin' on a new skin, which is why I haven't posted much, and it's finally done! Mostly anyway. Change it to Umber Fields and you should see all the fun. There are bound to be a few kinks in the display, so please tell me if there's anything wrong, or if something just looks odd to you, like if the font's too small. :C I'm thinkin' it might be. Staff ppl should pm me with 100x100 icons. Also the mini-profile circle images are 125x125. I thought they were 100x100 at first, but no, I forgot about the circle border edits. |D Couldn't have gotten it done without the codes from the people in the credits, so silent shoutout to them. Staytuned for more weird updates. Might do some re-arranging of the boards. Anywho, hope you like it!
OLD: 4/04 Ruki says: NEW SEASON! Spring has started! We might start advertising places again now that midterms are over for all of us, and posting is back up. Not exactly OOC news, but Enheit Alpha Sinead has PUPPIES. If you wanna adopt the last one, the adopt thread is HERE! Ody and Raven have their own rules for this, so read them and adopt a pup if y'all want. SPRANG BRAAAAKE.
2/26/15 WHY HELLO! Guess who it is again. Ruki. I've been busy condensing rules and tips into a handy updated guidebook here on THIS PAGE! with the help of my fellow staff buddies. It's super important to read and make sure you get all the fun info down. The newest rule is about ALPHA ACTIVITY, so be sure to read the Lands and Territories section. The gist of it is that yall leaders gotta post once a week. If you don't POOF. No more land for you. This is a new rule, but if you haven't posted within the next few days and haven't been active in a while, you best get on that 'cause yo' land's 'bout to be snatched.
IC Spring is here at last and the land is beginning to flourish with new life once more. Young animals are plentiful and slowly others are rousing out of hibernation. April showers rain down, and springtime flowers are budding out from their winter beds. SPRING will last from April 1st - June 1st
Dawn had long since come and gone, its warmth stretching across the seaside in a sultry pink light. The sun, steadily rising towards its highest point, illuminated to the point that those emerging from the wooded fringe would have quite the time trying to see for the first few minutes. Once their vision cleared, however, they sight they would behold was well worth the minutes of blindness. Viktor stiffly emerged from the underbrush in such a manner, his head cocked up and tail raised in his finest display of dominance, his lower teeth shining matte in the mid-morning sun. Whom was he looking to usurp? Oh, nobody- he merely felt the need to fluff up as he departed from that hellhole known as Schreien Forest. It helped the sinking feeling in his gut that stemmed from being in such a place, and if anything, his ego needed a quick stroke. As he exited the shadows, Viktor stared around at the open beach, his entire body unwinding at the sight. "Finally." He croaked to himself. "That place needs to burn."
Without turning to glare at the place in question, Viktor turned his attention to reaching the sea. His paws sunk into the powdery sand, which meant that for Viktor to make it to the water's edge, he needed to accentuate his steps, the over-exaggerated strides enough to lift and pull him up and over the first of the dunes. A gentle wind caught him under the chin, its cooling effect refreshing the wanderer's weariness. When it seemed as if a lifetime had passed, he tumbled down the last of the dunes separating him from the water and broke into a lope, crashing into the waves with a yip of mirth. His mother had taken him here once or twice as an adolescent. To be here once again as a strapping adult, it gave Viktor a feeling of joy. He felt as if he could turn around and see his mother and aunts once more, alert and watchful over Biggest Sister's pups.
Laughing to himself, Viktor plunged into briny deep and paddled about, diving and exploring where he could. When at last his desire to swim was sated, he emerged from the salty sea and flopped back into the sand for a roll, coating himself in a thick layer of grit. He stopped, remained on his side, and sighed. Ah, the bachelor life.
