hey there! i thought it would be kind of cool to have a thread open to everyone to roleplay out the beginning/creation of a pack. however, the slight difference is that these wolves are not normal wolves. many wolves in this world have been blessed with gifts from the Goddess, aka Gaea. they were given abilities that are derived from the earth, whether it be fire, water, light, air, darkness..the Goddess gives her gifts in many mysterious and blessed ways. while some of these wolves may be accepted by their birth pack, some are not. they are deemed a threat to the alpha, and usually thrown out to fend for themselves. these wolves have earned the nickname 'mutes' in terms of their "mutated" abilities. this is where our story comes in. these wandering mutes have heard promise of a land, a home for them, in stories. all kinds of wonderous and interesting creatures live there, just as weirdly beautiful as the mutes themselves.
so, you are a wolf who has no pack and nowhere to call your home...should you band together with others you find who are like you, try to find this mythical place, and create a pack that will span generations?
a few rules...
1. if you state you wish your character to eventually become a 'high ranking character' you need to be active and post a lot, i rlly don't want this thread to die
2. no overpowered charas. a combination of two powers is fine (such as control of water & ice) but you can't like, make a storm happen too. Gaea isn't that generous.
3. weaknesses are important in nature, so with your power you have weaknesses. Gaea likes balance.
4. try to have detailed and thoughtful posts! i understand low muse, and if you are feeling like that, suggest a plot that would heighten your muse!
the characters in the roleplay will decide who becomes alpha, beta, etc. i think this will be interesting since it would make more sense that way. plus it gives you time to flesh out your character!
5. make your characters diverse power-wise and personality-wise! that's the only way that this RP will be interesting. that's not to say you can't have similar powers/personalities to other characters, but still. just something to keep in mind.
6. and last but not least ff rules apply all that good stuff
i may add some other stuff later. but basically, the gist of the plot is that wolves blessed by Gaea eventually find each other, band together, slowly become a pack, and find their promised land. of course there's going to be lots of bumps along the road. if this thread is successful we can create an established pack 'thread' for other people to sign up as well and continue it there!
*note: the form can be relatively brief like mine, but if you want it to be longer that's totally fine too
we can start the roleplay once we get a few people and charas! this thread will always be open to new people however, so feel free to jump in whenever if you're reading this
seems to be a wolf/deer hybrid, though carnivorous and has all the qualities of a wolf besides the horns
abilities: extremely fast and agile, not unlike a deer. no one in her birth pack could come close to her running speed
weaknesses: not very strong, she's very light and rather small so in a fight with a larger opponent she would most likely lose
persona: bubbly, excitable, sweet, endearing, charismatic, naive, helpful, passive aggressive, somewhat submissive
possible rank: would perhaps be suited for a healer or hunter role
a type of fire elemental wolf
powers: production, manipulation, and impermeability to fire
weaknesses: the cold or being submerged in water for an extended period of time
persona: obnoxious, stubborn, arrogant, optimistic, charming, kind, short-tempered, protective
possible rank: too inexperienced & immature for any role above perhaps delta (lead warrior)
ALPHA: fairly self explanatory, this will need a somewhat older wolf with enough life experience to lead a pack properly and fairly.
ALPHESS: the alpha's mate, rules by his side (this can also be a male position)
BETA&APPRENTICE: alpha's advisor, typically also an older wolf (male or female)
HEALER&APPRENTICE: wolves with patience and empathy and obviously knowledge/interest of herbs/medicine
DELTA: lead warrior, typically a younger wolf as they see the most battle/fighting, and their bodies need to be equipped (male or female)
DELTAS&APPRENTICES: warriors (many of the wolves with temperaments and abilities better suited to combat)
MASTER/MISTRESS OF THE HUNT: the best hunter, brings in the most prey with the best technique and controls the influx of hunting and prey
HUNTERS&APPRENTICES: self explanatory, typically the more agile and less suited to fighting wolves
MASTER/MISTRESS OF THE NIGHT: this wolf could be anywhere at any given time, extremely adept at hiding, scouting, gathering information. controls sentinels
SENTINELS&APPRENTICES: wolves that are more suited to observing from the shadows, spies, scouts. they are the wolves who are equally as good at hunting & combat
THE YOUNG&NURSING: pregnant/nursing mothers who cannot be active in their duties and their pups, until they can be assigned to their respective ranks
if there are any other ideas, please suggest them! I just prefer ranks to be as little cluttered as possible.
