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
Heaven holds a sense of wonder And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up When the rage in me subsides
Dry. That was her first impression of this place.
It was workable, of course. Sinead had passed a stream on her way in so water and fish were resources. And hadn't she seen a scraggly rabbit leaping across the hard soil? Yes, it would work.
Sinead wasn't sure when she'd decided to claim a land of her own. Anyone who knew her would have laughed. She could be so listless, always searching, never finding. But perhaps...perhaps this was what she was searching for? She didn't make bad decisions. In fact, when she put her mind to it, she had been complimented on her "potential leadership skills", as an ex-pack member had once informed her. She could hunt and fight, if she needed to. So what was stopping her? She couldn't find herself a home, so why not create her own? Sure, her pack members would have to be patient with her. She could be snappy, sometimes a bit snooty, and other times she just wasn't in the mood to deal with trivial things. But they would learn, over time, the way that she was. They would realize her boundaries, and how to keep on her good side, and what ticked her off. Building a family was hard, but she could certainly do it.
Quickly, the multicolored she-wolf made her wade to a corner of the land where the dens were, nothing more than carved out holes in a dusty wall that sloped off into an incline. Hm. This would do, she supposed. It wasn't lush or thriving, but it was doable, and she already found herself growing a bit...fond of it. Of course, this would require her to take slaves. She'd known that when she idea first popped into her head, however. And it was fine. Good, strong packs needed members of every ranking. Slaves included. She had learned that from all the packs her mother had dragged her through, all of the unlikely friends she had made...yes, she thought she knew very well how to run a pack. Eperna, be with me.
Her mind suddenly made up, Sinead's ocean blue eyes flickered, ablaze with determination. She tossed her head back, parting her muzzle as a melodic, meaningful howl rang out across the empty land. Out of the corner of her eye, she noticed a lizard skitter across the dirt. After a few moments, she lowered her delicate muzzle, her tail held high as she stared out across Einheit. There was a tug somewhere in her chest, a rolling in her stomach that signified both excitement and nerves. This was it.
