An announcement concerning sensitive clan-wide plots has been released! You can view it HERE!
Check out Ivoria in Agrelos! They are an evil backboard group situated on the waterway. Successful completion of a trial is required in order to join. We have a great OOC community and would love to have you!

    i figured we were a bit over-due for some mass adopts so here we go! if we are short on litters, i might look back in the old mass-adopts and see if any are still available. i think that fresh litters would be very helpful though! i'll leave this going for probably a week, possibly shorter / longer depending on popularity.

    this is all over the place i'm sorry haha


    hey madster (and seina) !

    so i haven't been in the cartel for a really long time (i might not have ever really been there tbh) but that wasn't for any actual reason apart for nostalgia attachment to other groups. for that reason, i can't really provide much input on how the ooc or even ic community is. what i can say, is that i've happened to see some pretty unique/fun personality types within the cartel that i think are lacking in most other groups!


    i think that a business oriented clan is a bit difficult in agrelos but i have noticed within the past few months more efforts to exchange goods with other groups. i think this is a really fun little area that is pretty much exclusive to the cartel so it would be great if this could somehow be expanded even more. perhaps they could mass-source certain items (like crystals or berries) with corresponding groups that would impact their total supply? then if there is a conflict with that group or that month's exchange is skipped, they would be low on wine / daggers / whatever and would have to go to groups to explain their shortages and surpluses. idk, that's just kind of a poor example, but i definitely think that even more outer-group interactions could be fun and leave room for additional plots!


    the only thing i have left is the rank structure. i'm kind of weird when it comes to rank names and some of the cartel ones are a bit strange to me. that's very minor though and i doubt that's really turning many people away. i will edit if i think of anything else but right now, that's all i got! i hope you two get some more helpful tips from other members though, the cartel has always seemed fine to me! < 3

    hello, hello!


    welcome back to the site! i'm fallen and i've gone by that for pretty much forever, i don't know if we've ever interacted or not. i've been around since wcrpg days as well but i've only ever been in the extended side of the forum, unfortunately. that being said, i am also a bit socially awkward and use capitalization only sometimes (as you can see haha). if you have any questions about jumping back into the site or simply want to chat, my inbox is always open! quarantine means i'm online probably a lot more than i should be. o.o


    anyway, welcome back and happy writing! < 3

    traditions

    RELIGION - The Ruins are firm believers in the Red God. Devotion is optional but open disrespect is frowned upon. Click here for more information regarding the religion.


    THE BLOOD OATH - The most loyal of Ruiners will undergo the Blood Oath by either their own request or the leader’s suggestion. The Oath occurs in an altar built from bones and skins that stands in the center of camp. Here, both the leader and the Ruiner will cut into their paws using a ram’s horn and place them within a ram’s skull. The leader will say a phrase for the Ruiner to echo; "I am now a part of Sanguine Ruins eternally, oathed in blood to our family. I am blood of your blood, bone of your bone. I give you my spirit, and with you, I will run- in life and in death."


    BODY PAINT - Ruiners paint their pelts for two main reasons :

    • WAR-PAINT : This is straight blood that is applied right before heading to battle to give a freshly-fought look to the Ruiners. It stains the muzzle and paws of the fighter, as well as various other parts. This is used to spook the enemy.
    • CEREMONIAL-PAINT : One of the most renown ways blood is celebrated is through traditional body painting. A chalky substance consisting of Moroccan red clay powder and small amounts of enemy blood is used as the paint. Some traditional reasons for body paint are to honor family, mourn loved ones, terrify enemies, and prepare for religious rituals.

    THE VERNAL GATHERING (WINTER TO SPRING) - A trade festival centered around meats, furs, and other non-perishable items such as jewellery and weapons. It is considered a chance for the Sanguine Ruins to show of its wealth and power, and it is expected the members put on a good show. Violence is not permitted at this festival.


    THE AUTUMNAL GATHERING (SUMMER TO AUTUMN) - A trade festival centered around the exchange of herbs and intelligence. Finer goods and exotic items such as alcohol, metalwork, tinder and supplies are more likely to be on display. The purpose of this festival is for the Ruiners to gather information and parry wits with members from other lands. Violence is not permitted at this festival.


    THE RED TRIALS - Unlike the Blood Oath, this tradition is to prove loyalty to the Red God. Trials are handed out by the Priests of the clan to willing members at their request or at monthly events. If the trial is completed successfully, the Ruiner gains their Devoted title and His trust in them.

    territory

    The Sanguine Ruins currently dwells in the desert. During the day it reaches hot temperatures when the sun is at its peak, but quickly cools off in the evening. During the night it is bitterly cold. Northern desert dwellers must take necessary precautions if they plan on successfully living in this harsh, unforgiving environment.


    camp


    ICE PYRAMIDS - These icy, unmelting structures can be seen for miles protruding from the yellow sands of the desert. They can be found just north of the Blood Nile and are where the clan resides. The pyramids come in all different sized, some as small as a shrub, others are the size of a house, and all used by members that don’t want to dwell in the main pyramid.


    The pyramids are magic, it would seem. The ice walls are solid and clear, yet you cannot see from the outside to the inside, and vice-versa. Inside, the smooth grey stone emits heat and a white light bright enough to see from. Despite this, shadows still linger in the halls, though they are faint. The main chamber of the largest pyramid is where rituals and meetings are held. The Ruins use another house-sized pyramid nearby to store their prisoners and omegas.


    official


    BLOOD NILE - At the north of the desert a crimson-red river cuts through the sands, named for the color of its water. There is no oxygen in the water due to the algae that dwells within, so no life is found within the Nile. The waters are sluggish and think, but no one knows why. Water removed from the Nile remains thick but becomes clear and drinkable, though it does nothing to quench thirst.


    The Nile is host to an array of activities including rituals, sacrifices, and swimming. Some even believe the blood of the Red God once flowed through it.


    unofficial


    THE CORPSE BORDER - The perimeter of the desert is covered in bones and rotting corpses. Throughout the day, as captives are killed and other creatures die, their bodies are hauled to the border. This wall of skeletons reeks of death and serves as both a display of power and a warning to outsiders, which helps deter trespassers.


    THE CHURCH - The church is a pyramid built of stone and bone rather than the magical ice. It was constructed by members when the Red God visited Agrelos and he used this building for his housing. It is now a


    THE PIT - The pit is a little canyon with sandstone steps carved into one side. At the bottom of the pit is a large, open area with metal bars that surround it. These bars create small cells where prisoners are stored. From time to time, the captives are released from their confines to battle in the blood-splattered space in the middle.


    THE SUNDUNES - This is a place found by Billie Jean. On top of a dune, one can find rocks of all shapes and sizes. Some are small enough for a child, others large enough for a tiger. These stones retain heat from the sun and are used to bask in the daytime. This place is located near the camp and is free to be used by all.
