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
A dark figure emerged from the forest to stand on the marshy land of Groavche, partially obscured by the fog that rolled up from the damp ground. His coat was the color of the mud that covered most of the land, with dark strikes through it like shadows. He matched the land well, a harsh wolf for a harsh territory. A chorus of ribbits welcomed him, courtesy of the frogs that seemed to live in abundance in the marsh. The wolf eyed them, wondering how they would taste, but made no move toward the amphibians. That wasn't his purpose here.
Kronos sniffed at the invisible border that lay before him. This land was already claimed, by a female no less. He scoffed; as if a female would be any match for him. He could feel this desolate place calling him, a deep need to rule it resounded in him. Scratching out a living in this place would be challenging, supporting a thriving pack even more so. Kronos smiled. He loved a challenge. Already he could imagine the land under his rule, the border marked with his scent. He would raise up a mighty army, the ranks filled with wolves made tough by a hard life. Under his brilliant leadership, Groavche would become the stuff of legends, feared rather than looked down upon by her rich neighbors.
But first the small matter of securing it. The border scent told him his victory would be an easy feat. A female, younger than him by many moons, and smaller than his sizable bulk. But the battle would be fun, a practice round to keep his muscles loose. It had been too long since he had a real fight, Kronos thought with regret. In his most recent pack he had been put in charge of training the son of the aging Alpha. The brat had little interest in battle strategy. He ignored most of Kronos's lessons, then had the nerve to whine and complain when his teacher defeated him easily. A rabbit put up a better fight.
Kronos pulled himself out of his thoughts of the past. It was time to make his first move. He stepped over the border, satisfaction filling him as his paws touched what would soon be his. Stopping just inside, he lifted his great head and howled; a summons to the Alpha who stood in his way. As the howl died away it was replaced by words, intended for the wolf that must be running to defend her land by now.
"I challenge you for this land and your title as Alpha, female!" His voice seemed to cut through the fog. "Come meet me and agree to fight on the bloodstained ground of Dominor Streiten!" A devilish grin pulled up his lips, revealing sharp fangs. "Or keep your pelt intact and forfeit without a struggle. Your choice."
The empress had been awoken from her slumber by a howl, she had hoped it would be an ally, however, this wolf had no intention on joining her, this was a theif, and one of the worst kinds. This theif had no boundaries, and was one of the few greedies that she didn't want on her land. This theif wanted her land, right from out under her paws. Granted she hadn't been here long, and had nothing more than her pride, and home to lose, she still didn't want to lose this place so easily. she'd put up a fight for her home. She was not just going to walk away and let this loper steal away her beautiful swamp. She had uncovered it's secerts, and she knew how to use them ro her advantage should a squable break out, she was light enough to climb the branches, and slip over the tangled nests of roots without getting ensnared or slipping through the holes.
Isis, the glorious empress of Gorvachae, made her way from the earthen den under the mother tree of the pack. Swift feet charried her the distance to the boarder, she looked carefully around the
