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
So, spotting yourself a new land that your wolf is ambitious over gathering? Here on Ravensbruck you can challenge for a land that your wolf wants to own. First off, make sure the land you want hasn't been challenged for two weeks. This allows the Alphas to have a chance of being an Alpha before they could get kicked out. Simply make a post with the words [CHALLENGE] in the title so the Alpha(s) can clearly tell, and wait. If the Alpha has not replied three days after you've posted, your wolf wins the land by forfeit. You may then start posts with your new pack members and make a new post telling of the ranks. If the Alpha does reply, you'll both start a fighting post in Dominor Pakt. The wolf who starts the post will create the terms for the fight. An example is made below.
Fight Terms: If my wolf, ____, wins, I gain the land ____ and all of the land's members. The Alphas will be kicked out, and they can not return for two weeks.
If your wolf, ____, wins, She/he will retain the land and be able to take my wolf, ____, as a hostage.
That example was pretty rough, but is the basis of every fight. Your wolf has to be fighting for something, not just fighting to fight. You can also make the terms very light or very harsh, as in your character will be killed, or all their future pups taken to make the fight more or less symbolic/interesting. All has to be agreed upon by both parties. Once that is posted, your wolf may take his first turn. This will continue as the diagram below states.
Ten Pointed Format 1 | terms are posted, attacker posts entry into Dominor Pakt. 2 | terms are agreed upon, current alpha posts entry into Dominor Pakt. 3 | fight-starter attacks alpha 4 | alpha responds and attacks back 5 | fight-starter responds and attacks back 6 | alpha responds and attacks back 7 | fight-starter responds and attacks back 8 | alpha responds and attacks back 9 | fight-starter responds 10 | posting ceases and an admin or mod judges the fight.
The following format is what your posts of fighting will be judged on. You will be judged from the moment your wolf enters to the moment it ends. A mod's word is final. Have a problem with the ruling? Message a admin and state why. We'll decide from there.
