September 18th, 2021 Scilla Lagoon's challenge ends with Magnus winning the title of High Sovereign - but will he keep the Lagoon longer than those before him? Vermier Dieudonné also initiates a challenges against Zoticus for Wolfbron Bluffs, leaving many to wonder if the long-standing High Sovereign will be victorious again. Thankfully, the war has slowed and those involved are left to clean their wounds and determine the path forwards, while a cub-boom welcomes a number of new litters to the island.

September 7th, 2021 Scilla Lagoon is once again challenged for, this time by Magnus Sigrun, who was upset to learn that Ùlla had been removed from her throne by the members of the Lagoon. And so, he opts to challenge High Sovereign Amara, while Nadia and Ùlla battle for the crown of Obsidian Hollow. With so much fighting happening in once peaceful lands, will Maua decide to step in, or will they let them continue on?

September 5th, 2021 As an impromptu war breaks out between Wolfbron Bluffs and Ecrosia Mire, the death matches conclude, resulting in the deaths of Sangria and Valhalla. Aarani also wins the crown for the newly-abandoned Andal Oasis, while Cupid succeeds in his own claim for Firnen Rainforest. This event has sent ripples across the inhabitants of Amaryllis - but the biggest question still remains: what does this mean for their futures?

September 2nd, 2021 Vermier Dieudonné's loss of Scilla Lagoon has stirred up a pride uprising among the members that lived in the Lagoon against the new High Sovereign Ùlla. Will she be able to defend her new title? The chaos in the Rainforest leads to a death match between Ismae and Valhalla and a number of other attacks are made as the future of the Oasis and Rainforest hang in the balance.

August 31st, 2021 Aquila Valour has finally reached the end of his patience, and inititates a raid between Andal Oasis and Firnen Rainforest, intent on preserving Maua's will and seeking revenge for High Sovereign Sangria's wrongdoings. She refuses to fold, however, leading to a death match between the two pride leaders, and surely more chaos to come.

August 25th, 2021 Avaneira Greyflood has won her challenge for Caladan Cove, and the island will soon see what her plans are. Another member from the Hollows, Ùlla, decides to initiate a challenge for Scilla Lagoon, bringing with it a fair amount of drama and carnage on the sidelines. Will High Sovereign Vermier Dieudonné be able to win the battle for the Lagoon, or will he fall similarly to the other coastal king?

August 14th, 2021 Avaneira from Obsidian Hollows makes a public challenge over Caladan Cove in the pit. Is she looking to prove her worth, or does she have a message for the High Sovereign, Drakon Tollaire?

August 12th, 2021 Sangria wins her challenge for the Rainforest and quickly made enemies and allies. Caladan Cove and Scilla Lagoon seems to be having some tension as well as a cub is claimed and a trespasser arrives and is attacked.

August 8th, 2021 In a shocking turn of events, Sangria challenges for leadership of her own pride, Firnen Rainforest, against Roan Hodari. Tensions also continue to rise between Wolfbron Bluffs and Scilla Lagoon, as the mountain pride marches upon the beach's borders to reclaim a cub they believe to be their's.

July 26th, 2021 It seems that High Sovereign Kiton breaks the curse of the Mire and defends his pride from Genya. Others have jumped ino a brawl over the fallen challenger. How will things work out for Kiton and those who are now spilling blood in the Mire?

July 14th, 2021 In a bold move, Genya challenges for the Mire. Will the curse of the Mire prove to be in Genya's favor against the standing High Sovereign, Kiton? Or will the High Sovereign break the curse?

July 12th, 2021 In the wake of the Oasis' disband, Aquila Valour and Arjana challenge one another for the crown. Aquila comes out victorious, thereby creating the second official native pride.

July 9th, 2021 Tragedy has struck the desert kingdom — High Sovereign Mirza has been kidnapped, leaving the pride without a leader and forcing it to disband. Who could have done this?

Out-of-Character Basics

What is the time zone that Amaryllis runs on?

  • Our base time zone is EST as this is where 90% of our membership base is located.

What are the activity requirements? How much do I need to post to be considered active?

  • Leadership aside, once a month is all that we ask for. If you fall inactive, you just need to reapply to come back. If you were in a pride and reapply within one OOC month, you can request to be placed back into that pride when rejoining.
  • If all your IC accounts fall inactive, your OOC account will be placed as Inactive. You will still be able to post in the OOC areas if you need to.

I made an account, but I haven't been able to get it going or have lost muse for it, what can I do?

  • If you have applied with your account and it has under 25 posts and you have NOT claimed any petals or trade exp, you can have the account refunded for anything you spent on it.

The tagging system doesn't work on a character's name, how do I tag them?

  • It's probably because it has spaces or special characters in it. There are 3 ways to get around this:
  • The first two ways are easiest if the character's names only have characters from a standard keyboard -- you simply put either single or double quotes around the name. ex: @"Character Name", @'Character name'. Keep in mind that there are "curly" quotes in some programs (a lot of cellphone have these) and these will not work when trying to use the tagging system.
  • The foolproof way to tag someone is to use their user ID (ex. @username#2 will tag Naya's OOC account without fail).

How can I see all the accounts of those who are on the site?

  • We have two ways for you to see who is active on the site.You can search through the member list, which shows each active account, or our account list, which shows each account that is attached to an OOC account.

How long does it take to get my audition approved? Why is it taking so long?

  • Being approved may happen right away or it may take a few days. It depends on when the Staff is able to review the account. Having all the information correctly filled out will help speed up the process. If you are using shop items, make sure to have them added to the account properly.
  • If your account has not been approved 5 days after posting, please reach out to a Staff member. If it has been less than 5 days, please give the Staff time. It is rare that it will take that long but sometimes things do get missed.

Why did another account get approved before mine when I posted first?

  • This shouldn't happen often, but if it does, it may be that the Staff member accepting accounts had a question about yours and is waiting for an answer. If this happens, you are welcome to reach out to a staff member and ask.

Can someone who doesn't have an accepted IC account audition for an adoptable?

  • Yes! Auditioning OOC accounts can post and make threads in the Adoptables board.

Discord

How do I find your Discord?

  • Discord is our primary way of chatting with each other and you can see our rules and how to join us here. If you don't have discord, that is ok. We announce everything on site that is important, so you won't miss-out on anything site based!

How do I request roles in Discord?

  • We have two roles channels in the Discord. Our #basic-roles channel allows you to set your pronouns, timezone, and a few basic channels to pick from. Our #roles-for-members channel gives you access to more channels, and is only accessible once you have an active IC account.

Question?

Character Creation

What happens if the name that I want for my character is taken?

  • This happens sometimes. If this happens, check to see if the name is active in the member list. If it is not, reach out to a Sr.Staff member and we will see what can be done. Sometimes, the account holder will let the name go and other times we may ask that you switch up your name spelling some.

How do I edit my profile?

  • In your User CP, find "Edit Profile" and this will allow you to edit and update your profile.

I have been accepted but want to change something in my profile but can't?

  • A number of key items are unable to be edited after you have been accepted, such as mutations, marking amounts, size, pelt color, etc. If you need something updated, like PVP or trades, please post in Maintenance in the correct area.

What's the difference between using the New Member Bonus (NMB) vs using the Random Design Generator (RDG) for my first character?

  • Both the NMB and the RDG are tools that we have in place to allow our members to bring in more expensive characters for free.
  • The NMB is tiered, and you can pick one option for your first on-site character. The RDG is completely random, can be used at any time,and can produce rare character designs, like the highest-tiered pelts and mutations, as well as breed-only items.
  • If you are a first-time member making your first character, you can choose between either. But, if you choose to use the RDG on your first character, you will lose the NMB, making it unclaimable for your next character.
  • Given this, it is recommended that you look at the NMB first, to see if it fits any character ideas you have.

What are native characters?

  • Native characters are defined as those who were born here and have never left. They join with the knowledge of Maua and the site's lore. Those tagged as Native characters know who all the other Native characters are, unless there is a reason that they wouldn't.

How do I get a native character?

  • Native characters were a special part of the BWP during the initial site open, and were free to make. As of March 3rd, 2021, new native characters can be bought for 1000 petals in the Shop.

Question?

  • --
Posting and Threads

Does the site have a word or paragraph count?

  • We do have a minimum word count of 100 words. Threads that have 2+ posts that do not meet this minimum word count cannot be claimed for trade exp or petals.

What sort of items need a trigger warning?

  • Anything that could fall under senstive in nature should have a trigger warning attached to it so that other members are aware and are given a heads-up about the content.

How many threads can I have going at once?

  • As many as you feel you can keep up with.

How far back in time can I go in time with threads?

  • Little tricky, as we do not like threads to be dated before major events (think fights, raids, etc.) if there is relation or mention to that event in any way. Make sure that anytning that is backdated does not impact the present.

What do all the thread tags mean?
- All Welcome.

- Mature. Contains mature topics.

In-Character Basics

Once a character is claimed into a pride, how long does the claim last?

  • Once officially claimed into a pride, it is indefinite until the character is: released, escapes, traded, or the pride disbands.

Can creatures be claimed?

  • Because creatures cannot participate in the site's fight system, they cannot be claimed.

Can my character know everyone and their names?

  • Nope, we want characters to learn things in character so you'll need to roleplay out learning new things.

I would like to have cubs! How do I that?

  • We love cubs! Check out the breeding guidebook page to learn more about what is needed and how to request a litter.

What's the method of finding characters that are hidden in threads?

  • Some characters try to "spy" or "hide" in public threads, but this is not guaranteed. In other words, without specific trade perks, they always have a chance to be found.
    • The only time you are guaranteed to remain hidden is after another character has attempted to find you, and failed, as per below.
  • Level 3 Pathfinders have a 50/50 chance of guaranteeing to remain hidden in any given thread, without chance of discovery.
    • Start by posting in the thread you want to hide in, and roll [roll=1d2] at the bottom of your post.
    • Rolling a 1 means that you are successful, and cannot be discovered in that thread by other characters.
    • Rolling a 2 means that you are not successful, and can be discovered in that thread by other characters (as per below), if you choose to keep hiding.

  • Normal characters who are trying to find someone ELSE in hiding need to make a post trying to find the hidden character, and roll [roll=1d10] at the bottom of their post.
    • Rolling a 4 or higher means that your character has successfully found the hidden character, and can react accordingly in their next post.
      • If your character was hidden and got discovered, you can attempt to escape the thread using the escape dice, available here.
    • Rolling a 1-3 means that the other character is successfully hidden and cannot be discovered in that thread, by anyone.
      • A hidden character can only be attempted to be found once (1 time) per thread. No other characters can attempt to find someone that has already been deemed successfully hidden by a dice roll.

Prides

Do I have to put my characters in the passage when arriving?

  • Nope. It is the fastest way to get into a pride but you do not have to start there.

I want to join a pride, how do I pick one?

  • Take a look at each one, look at their rules and their leaders. Who would your character mesh with best? Do you want to join a newer pride or a pride that is stable? Both have perks and downfalls. A newer pride would have open ranks to join. An older pride has hunt perks and stable, proven leadership. It is up to you!

What do I do if my character is claimed into a pride I don’t like?

  • There are several ways you can handle this. You could contest the claim and fight for freedom. You could attempt to run away; this action can be rolled for. You could accept it for the time and either fight your way out later or find someone from another pride to fight for you. In some cases, pride leaders hold meetings and those who do not show are no longer part of the pride, so you could wait it out. Or you could accept it and try to find a way to bring the pride down from the inside.

What is the difference between a claim and an invite?

  • A claim is when a ranked member decides/tells another that they belong to a pride. An invite is an offer to join a pride and the receiving lion has the ability to say yes or no.

If the pride my character is in gets challenged for and won, does my character still have to stay in it?

  • Nope. Your character can flee the lands and stay away. It may take a little time for the title to be dropped, depending on how the new leader runs things but you do not have to stay.

I want to challenge for a pride, how do I do that?

  • You should first make sure that you have looked over the guidebook page for the leadership. There are a number of items that you need to make sure you have covered before challenging or you risk being voided. You also need to make sure you have the amount of petals needed to challenge.

I want my character to challenge for or claim a pride. Do they have to meet the leadership posting requirements the whole time that they are challenging?

  • Yes. From the moment that you post the challenge/claim, you need to continuously meet the leadership posting requirements.

Yay! I am a pride leader, now what?

  • Congrats! Get out there and get some new members. Go to other prides and see if anyone wants to be allies. Start making plans.

As a leader, can I make rules that go against the site rules?

  • The only thing we allow the pride rule to change is the way a pride moves if the main leader fails reqs. Otherwise, please follow the rules.

Fight System

Since creatures cannot participate in the fight system, does this mean any/all fights against a creature have to be pre-planned OOC by both parties? Or that creatures cannot be attacked at all?

  • Creatures are only allowed to fight with pre-determined OOC outcomes. You could also roll an independent dice OOC to determine the winner!
  • There is a degree of freedom allowed with these -- the only caveat being that they do not use our structured fight system.

If your character is already injured and they get into another fight, what happens?

  • Unless your fight resulted in a wounded roll, you can write your character's injuries as you'd like, within reason.

Do we request wounded rolls or do they happen automatically?

  • If your fight qualifies for a wounded roll, Staff will post the wounded status with the official fight results, as well as all other important information.

How would I instigate a death match without consent of the other player?

  • Unless the character is on Green PVP, you can't death match them without consent.
  • Exception: If it appears as though the member/character is hiding behind a lower PVP status, this infringes upon the site rules. In this scenario, the character would have their PVP increased by Staff.
  • Example: Lion A is Yellow PVP, and they death match Lion B and Lion C, who are Green PVP (meaning consent is not needed by Lion A), without any IC reason. BUT, Lion D cannot death match Lion A as revenge because Lion A is still on Yellow PVP. This is an example of hiding behind PVP statuses.

Can cubs (aged less than one year) be attacked? If so, can they fight back using the fight system?

  • Cubs are not exempt from fights, but face huge penalties due to their age. Their PVP must still be respected and followed.

Question?

  • --
Trade Related

How many tasks can be claimed in a thread for a trade?

  • You can claim a total of 3 trade tasks (maximum) per thread.

Can one task count for two trades? i.e. If I participate in a hunt using the rolled system, can I claim that hunt for my character's Master and Sub Master trades?

  • No. Trade tasks have to go to one or the other, never both.

Can you repeat the same task in a single thread? i.e. If my character exercises to gain strength over two posts twice, totaling exercising to gain strength over four posts?

  • You can repeat the same task in a single thread, but the tasks have to be distinct and separate from one another in order to be claimed separately.
  • i.e. Running up a hill for four posts would not count as two tasks, but running up a hill and then pushing boulders around would.

When a character reaches an age listed for experience points, do they automatically gain those points? Or do they have to join as that age to get those exp points?

  • You only get age-related trade experience when joining.

Can you double-up on trades? i.e. Can I have Barbarian be both my Master and Sub-Master trade?

  • Yes, you can. Some of the trade perks will multiply when doing this, but please note that others won't. Overall, you will gain less perks from doubling-up the same trade.
