So, here we are. The big update. You may be wondering, “what do all these changes mean? What has it got to do with me? Why is it so sudden?”
And if you aren’t, you probably should be. It’s a very big deal.
As you may have noticed, the site is a lot bigger and there are many new things. Instead of leaving you to figure out all those little things and searching around with no real direction, we thought it would be best to tell you here.
A whole new side to the site is being added in the form if wolves and dogs. By reading the Creations Thread, you can see that Zevran has now created a new species, the dog, to live alongside already existing wolves.
Now, you may be getting excited, or wary, one of the two, but no matter: both emotions can be doused by the fact that at the beginning of this new mode, you may only create one wolf and two dogs. At the beginning of this new side to the wilderness, there will be no buying of new characters or litters.
Why, you may ask? We want to keep things from getting out of hand. If things go smoothly, we will open up litters and the buying of dog characters -- not wolves. We will not be allowing the creation of wolves unless they are born in litters to keep the factor that they are going extinct.
And for those of you worrying about future dog-and-cat interactions, fear not! We have a solution. A huge mountain range covers shore-to-shore any chance of dogs and cats meeting. Even if one were to climb the tall mountains, they would freeze or lose access to oxygen -- dogs and cats will never interact in-roleplay.
And before we forget, a very important tidbit: dogs do not know they were just created. Zevran has given them memories as if they’ve always been here. He has not revealed himself to them or allowed them to realize that all of their memories are fake. You will create your dogs as though they have lived their whole life of their history — and to them, they have.
As for all of the rules accompanying this, re-read the rule thread. If you’re wondering about specifics for the dogs, you can check out the following threads:
Establishing a Pack
Join A Pack
Stealing a Pack
Fighting Roll Code
We now have an aging system as well! This will not affect already made characters! Any character made on/aftr 11.25.18 will be affected.
AGING: Characters now age automatically. One RL week = 1 Moon/month in RP. We still have liquid time so you cans till go back to threads when the character was young. etc but this is so your characters will actually age. We will have a shop item where you can freeze them for X amount of weeks/moons.
The below is a guideline but it also shows the "dead"line for characters.
Kit/Pup: 0-6 moons *Kits can be older before becoming apprentice due to certain events.*
Apprentice/Adol: 6 to 12 moons *The youngest age an apprentice can become a warrior is 12 moons but they can also be older*
Warrior/Adult: 12 to 100 *at 100 moons a warrior can become an elder but does not have to*
Elder: 100 to 240 Moons *at 240 moons your character must die (feline and canine)*
