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
Ravensbrück is, in fact, a slavery rpg. There are three main positions your wolf can be listed as. They follow below, along with a small description of what each is and pertains to. The first name is the English word for the rank--the second is the word used by the wolves on Ravensbrück. You can, however, use either form of the word.
Master // Dominor -- If your a dominor, you can either roam or claim a land. When you roam you are not allowed to claim slaves for yourself, but you can terrorize other packs and cause general chaos and ruckus. As a "roaming" dominor you are not called an Alpha; you don't have a pack to own that title. If you own a land, you will be both an Alpha and a dominor; in other words, a "leading" dominor. You can gather as many slaves as you want and keep them in your pack, challenge other Alphas for their slaves, or roam the lands to encourage other wolves to join you. You can promote slaves to freedom when you acquire them, or keep them as slaves--as slaves they will not be able to leave the territory, but as free-roamers, they will. You have complete control over your slaves; just make sure there isn't any power playing. Dominors can join a pack and not be an Alpha. In this case, they would be a "settled" dominor. You are settled into a pack and don't roam without a home or lead a pack.
Free-Roamer // Freior -- Free-roamers don't just roam. They are wolves who don't own slaves, yet they aren't a slave either. You CAN be a free-roamer and own land, you just cannot own slaves. Free-roamers, like the other ranks, can be male or female. They can be taken into slavery by a dominor if they are caught on Auktion Rock grounds, so be careful. If this occurs, you will need to fight for your freedom; you'll have a higher percentage of getting away than a slave, but a fighting post will, regardless, need to happen. Freiors choose where they live and reside, and can leave their pack at anytime; they are in full control of themselves. This tends to make them more rebellious and more of a threat to dominors.
Slave // Sklavin -- As a slave, your character's first post will be in the Auktion Rock. There they will be claimed by a dominor, and they will go back with that wolf to their pack. Your character can try to run away or revolt, although success is little to none. Do whatever suits your character. The dominor owns the slave's life and can do whatever they please to them; be it beating, ordering and just regular bossing around, or possibly breeding. The slave's dominor decides what happens to their slave's pups/offspring which includes killing them, selling them off, keep them as slaves, or promoting them to freedom. Your wolf can become free if their master decides to free them.
