Each species has a more in-depth FAQ specific to them.FaeWerewolvesWitchesWalkersVampiresHumansWizardsWhen did the Fae and Wolves come out to the public?
1986 was when the fae first came out, werewolves were outed in 2007.
Now this doesn't mean your fae or Werewolf needs to be outed, it is an option and for fae depends on race (check the fae specific lores for this).Can my character be oblivious to what (s)he is?
Not really. Wolves are mauled practically to death and only live because the wolf takes hold.
Vampires are pretty committed to getting chewed on for months or years before they're turned.
Walkers are born that way and spontaneously shift as babies before they have the mental capacity to be told not to do so.
Everyone is pretty aware of what they are. There's really no hiding it from yourself.What are the names of the series? I want to read them!Here's a list!
Mercy Thompson starts with Moon Called. Alpha and Omega starts with Cry Wolf. Mercy is a bit more action-packed while A&O is a bit more romantic. Why can't I see your approved characters?
This is done as requested by our members. You can view them once you are registered.My character is part of Pasco, does that mean he can't go into Kennewick?
Nope. All the packs/Seethes have it arranged that people can come and go freely so long as they follow the specific rules laid out by the city's appropriate ruling body. (Ie: Werewolves follow the local alpha's rules, vampires follow the local Seethe master's, etc)Can I play a ghost?
Because we're adults and we like playing with adults. While some of our topics on site might veer towards a more adult audience, the primary reason is the fact that we just prefer writing with other adults.Do you allow transgender characters?
We've got a couple on site already. Just claim their face as the gender of the RW individual.Do you allow X sexuality?
We seriously don't care. Roll whatever sexuality you want.Do I need an OOC account?
Not if you don't want one. A lot of us have found that it's easier for managing multiple characters, but if you only have one there's no need and nothing saying you ever need to have one if you don't want one. It's a good solid place for people to send PMs to so you don't have to hop around to every character to see if you've gotten new ones.I made an account months ago and just now found the site again, why is my account gone?
We clean out accounts that are untouched monthly. Same goes for WIPs that have been abandoned and approved characters that don't make the AC. While we're relaxed on posting, we feel that having inactive players/characters in the directory and taking up limited slots (female wolves, for example) is unfair to those that join and want to participate.What about hunters?
It's hard to hunt something when it's publicly out there. They don't really exist in the Mercycverse. Werewolves and fae are known to exist publicly so if they start turning up dead, people will notice. Vampires aren't public, but they keep to either extremely powerful groups or themselves, doing everything in their power to avoid detection. While someone might take a dislike to any of the above and want to kill them, humans (or even walkers and witches) are so extremely outclassed by the heavy hitters in the supernatural world.Evil characters?
While possible, they're not exactly likely. Because of the ongoing emphasis on keeping the peace and not
standing out to the human population anyone that is prone to causing trouble is quickly taken care of. On top of this, the werewolf population has been actively culling their murderous individuals in order to keep humans from turning on them. When the fae first come out, the Gray Lords slaughtered entire species in order to prevent murderous fae from giving them bad press. This included fae that liked to eat humans (those spared were given a strict rule: No eating people. Failure to uphold to this means a swift death.) Vampires are vaguely paranoid with the outing of werewolves and fae and don't want to be found out themselves, thus keep their killing quiet. Witches are kept in line both by their clans and the fact that if they grow too powerful, other witches will come after them for that power. There's checks and balances in place that keep "evil" characters from getting far in this world. (On top of that, we're more of a slice of life as opposed to an ongoing plot so if your character spends their time being a douchebag, they might not be finding the interaction you want.)How do I link accounts?
My Controls > Subaccounts. You log in from there, they're connected! Make sure you are signed in to the account you want to be the primary account.I want to have XYZ rank!
We're glad you're that interested in Cry Wolf, but I'd stop by the rank info
first and see if the the rank you want is available first off. If it is, then I'd take a look at the requirements. All our ranks require 3+ weeks of activity after approval before you can even be considered for it. Plus, of course, the IC requirements. All of which are listed on that thread.How do I use your tag system?
@[First Last] as it appears on the account. Or @OOC if its only one word.How do I put music on my profile?
To add a song, there are a few ways to go about it. Two of the easiest are to simply go to a music site like MP3Skull or MP3Olimp and copy the MP3 LINK of a song you wish to use. Search the name of the song you want, then click download on MP3Skull or embed on MP3Olimp. For MP3Skull, when you click on download it should open up another window with a full screen black media player. Copy the link in the URL bar and paste it into the field for music on your profile.
For MP3Olimp, when you click on embed find the part of the code where its a link that ends in .mp3. This is the link you want to paste into the music section of your profile.
Say I'm looking for Chris Mann and Christina Aguilera's version of "The Prayer". So I go to MP3Skull and type that in the search bar. I wait for the results and usually test out the files before I click on embed to make sure the link works. Once I'm sure it'll work, I click on embed, and this is what I'll see:
Now, what I'm going to take out of all that code is one tiny link that ends in MP3.
Paste that into the music section in your control panel, hit update profile and you are set with music!
