Crashing Tide, created by Wisteriaflower, is a traditional thread side-group founded in hopes of creating a interactive, semi-realistic wolf roleplay group far from darker themes. Our group has a prominent religion in the Kahu and Ke Ahi [see more on the lore page] and focuses on more relaxed, placid themes like hunting and training than complex plots and user face. Above all, this group was created to have fun in an easy-to-understand way.

«Animals don't behave like men,' he said. 'If they have to fight, they fight; and if they have to kill they kill. But they don't sit down and set their wits to work to devise ways of spoiling other creatures' lives and hurting them. They have dignity and animality.»

-Watership Down, Richard Adams

Territory

Crashing Tide is a small outcrop among seal-draped boulders and between the stretching arms of two mounds of rubble. The beaches of Crashing Tide, the primary game grounds as well as being the embodiment of Orca, are a a long stretch of pale yellow sands, dark boulders and pale mosses' and guano. There are numerous sandbars and lagoons along the beach, usually filled with fish basking in the warm tropical waters. Off shore there is a jagged skerry, usually breaking the worst of the surf and filling the shores with a constant faint roar. Some of the rocks are large enough to stand on, however, it is ill-advised to go beyond them. Occasionally you can find a creature nibbling at the odd coconut tree.

Crashing Tide's forests consist of tall tropical trees, including copses of figs, oranges, persimmons and guano. However, the soil is sandy and dry, and usually lacks the nutritions for the famous hundred-foot jungle trees. A low depression surrounds the broad Dusky River, called such because of the mud pigment that makes it a dark yellowish shade, like a muted setting sun. The swamps host grasses and reeds taller than a wolf as well as the common marsh deer and rabbit. [codeword is lagoon.] There is a steep, about 50-yard down separating Crashing Tide from a warm fir forest, with the occasional oak and cypress sprinkled in. Though this is generally considered to be out of general CT breath, being about ~48 kilometers from the camp. This slope is dotted with broad, flat meadows of grazed grasses attracting the traditional elk, deer and rabbits, sometimes attracting the odd mountain goat from the alps above. Another 65 kilometers and bald mountain caps sour into the skies, hosting the Arctic Pack.

Regulations ➤

In Character

You are allowed unlimited OC's, but it is illadvised to abuse this rule and create hoards of characters, at that will result in temporary ban from roleplay or the removal of certain OC's. If you are to create a pup or trainee OC, no aspects of that character may be changed until the Combatant stage of the OC's life. You are also obliged to go threw the entire training process of a trainee, if you are unwilling to, your character will likely be put on hiatus [codeword is lobster]. If you don't think you can handle too many OC's, then self-limitate!

If you choose to roleplay as the pup of a Caretaker, please remember to remain active. To prevent boredom every pup is automatically set to three moons, about the time when a wolf pup will begin to explore the outdoors. If you still find this boring then perhaps you should lend your character off to someone else or ask to have your character removed. If you and a friend are making collaboration OC's [perhaps siblings] remember to agree on personality and appearance beforehand.

Out of Roleplay

If you have any questions, it is advised to seek the attention of Wisteriaflower, Rasha118, SpinnyAJ or Artice24 - as eldest members, they understand the rules better than most anyone. Drama is essential in any healthy roleplay environment, but it is ill-advised to stir up trouble with a plot or permission from higher authorities. With that being said, Crashing Tide is meant to be a fun place to roleplay [codeword is coconut], and we fully hope for you to practice roleplay styles, creativity and OC creation!

Trainee

Trainee's are those young wolves below two years of age in training to join the Combatant Rank. They are usually inexpierenced and have no prior knowledge of hunting or combat.

Tasks of this rank include swapping bedding, babysitting pups and patrolling alongside their mentor. They are expected to be submissive and obiedient. They do have fun - for example there is a running tale that the tiny eggs frogs sometimes leave in the pool beside the nursery are actually deliscious berries.

Caretaker

Caretaker's are essentially the Queen's of the Pack, in charge of rearing the new generation with their own wisdom and gentleness. Without pups, there would be no life, and hence Caretaker's are respected greatly. When a temporary caretakers pups are old enough to become Trainee's, they will return to their normal duties.

This rank is open.

Name Username Other Due-Date

Youth

The youth of Crashing Tide are pups below the age of one year, in waiting to supply the pack with the next generation of trainee's and combatant's. They are still living in the Nursery with their mother and littermates at this time, 'training' how to behave in the pack - for example, respecting the Alpha, following the rules, and building nests. Pups are usually very light-hearted and entergetic, usually scampering all about camp and causing quite the mischief. 

Usually pups will remain in this rank for about seven moons, or until they have the needed stamina to accompany their mentors on hunts and chases. This would roughly translate to about seven weeks of roleplay.

This rank is open.

Name Username Gender Caretaker
Moose Speckledpotato Junco
Firefly GalacticSkiess Junco

Elder

Elder's are those retired Combatant's and Shaman's that have done their duty faithfully, but are now retired in their last days. They are wise from age and hold respect and minimal authority, and even the Alpha looks for them for guidance at times.

They are not expected to catch their own prey, nor guard and fight, unless needed.

This rank is open.

Dispersal

Dispersals are those that live outside of Crashing Tide's borders nor consider themselves members of the Pack. They can be foes or allies, however most often they are neutrals, roaming the land in attempt of sprouting their own mini-packs. They often hunt alone and avoid conflict.

This rank is open.

Summer in Crashing Tide is a long, scorching season with unbearable heat throughout much on sunhigh. Most game follows suit to the wolves themselves and choose to avoid the scorching midday for the cooler twilight hours, grazing on dry grasses and fruits. Summer is also the most fragrant time of year, with fallen fruit [such as figs, oranges and guavas] beginning to spoil and draw marsh and white-tailed deer from their usual swampy habitat. The swamps themselves are quite unbearable, ridden with bugs, slugs and snails, however, the fish are often teeming at this time of year. Growth is at it's peak and herbs are incredibly common.

Description Date

Saber's Heart

In Progress

«Real isn't how you are made. It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real… 'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.»
