to Cry Wolf! We are an 18+ AU, intermediate to advanced Mercy Thompson/Alpha and Omega RP set in present day, in the Tri-Cities of Washington. We are a premium board with a 250 wordcount. Please make sure that you register with your characters name in Proper Case. Not in all caps. Example: Mercy Thompson. We welcome you to the site and if you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out to the staff.
No knowledge of the books is required. All the information needed is available on site. We ask that you read over the species information before rolling one of that type, as there are a few key differences between Mercyverse creatures and the ones you might know.
We put emphasis on the slice-of-life RP with the occasional event to throw things off. ;)
Skin made by Tana @ Cosmo, Shine, and ATF. Graphics, custom stats, forum, profile structure, mini profiles and coding tweaks thanks to Ara. Templates thanks to Becky of Candyland. All apps, threads, fae lore, and plots belong to their respective members of Cry Wolf. Most importantly the Mercy Thompson Universe is thanks to Patricia Briggs for creating such an interesting world for us to enjoy.
Most of the lore is done. Most of the layout is done. - Need to fill in the remaining header boxes.
Added a walker listing so people can see how many of each animal there are. Got the links at the top all connected. Moon phase in place. Forum descriptions done/coded. Subforums for Other area done.
Updated the template code to make it easier to find things you need filled in. Cbox is premium. Updated faceclaim listing Removed WIP status from information forums. Updated the census - Like that won't be getting done enough in the next few days. xD
Updated the claims. Updated the rules to clarify the rating is Jcink's doing.
Temporarily made it so that only registered members can see the threads/approved characters. This was done out of concern for your privacy. This will likely only be a temporary thing. Give it a month or so and we'll see.
Added quick links to the Your Place description since Jenn can't find things.
You'll notice there's a new layout! Thank you to the lovely Ara for our beautiful new set up! Humans, Guests and Members are now only singular in their grouping names. Avatar sizes changed to 250x400.
5.15.14 Word counter is back! Updated the job claim to be more organized! woo!
Minor update to Wanted: Ranks to indicate the earliest possible time we will begin going through applications. Keep in mind that there is a 3 week activity requirement and we will likely wait until we have at least two applications for each position before selecting anyone in order to have a variety.
Minor update to the Rank information thread including details on group stereotypes.
Updated Walker info to reflect that only North American animals are allowed. No South American, no central American.
Updated the template to include the following: Once your application is approved you may NOT make changes to it to distinctly alter the character/history/abilities We approve what we see and once it is approved they should not be changed.
Updated the Group C character info to reflect that any powers need to be fully explained as to their source and no character should be given a distinct advantage over the rest of the playerbase.
You may make two characters to start with, but before you make others you must be in at least one active thread with each of them. This is to help our application staff not get bombarded with unused characters that are then discarded next AC.
This will be implemented immediately. This is primarily to keep members focused on RPing characters they have and developing characters they actively want as opposed to creating throw-away characters that they roll, then promptly lose interest in. If you are creating and actively RPing with the characters you create, there's nothing to worry about! There's no punishment for losing interest in a character, nor do we want to discourage character creation. We simply want individuals to create and RP the characters they create (and give application staff the chance to do the same!)
Examples of a group C character could be a human mated to a werewolf that happens to be able to pull from their mate-bond to have the (lessened) senses of a wolf or a fae that is the last of it's kind. This does not mean you can have, say, a werewolf that can teleport or a werewolf-vampire hybrid. You may also use your C character to go over the age-limits of a specific race. If it is something the staff feels is overpowered, ridiculous or does not suit the world, we will deny the request or work with you to make it fit.
Masquerade is over! All threads have been moved to the Past forum in case someone wanted to finish theirs off!
A Kennewick alpha has been chosen! We're waiting to hear back from the individual selected so that they can pursue the rank ICly as they choose before we announce it.
Congratulations to Jean-Baptiste d'Entremont on the rank of Alpha for Kennewick! Congratulations to Kitonwy Morgan on the rank of Omega for Richland!
Keep in mind that Kennewick still has an omega slot open, but this rank must be filled by a male character. The ranks of second, third and negotiator are open for all packs. Negotiator requires an application (feel free to ask staff for more information) but seconds and thirds are chosen by their alphas - Speak to your alpha to be taken into consideration!
Those interested in group A rankings should be active on the site, be in good standing with the other members, be actively posting. It is expected that they be capable of following directions (OOCly,) are okay being involved in the occasional thing behind the scenes and want to assist the site as a whole. Leadership ranks can and will be called upon to help with everything from plots to assisting with reviewing other applicants, as the staff see fit.
