Folklore is closing and the site + discord will be unavailable after 11/23 --- please check the discord for updates!


Pack Formation
Packs offer a wealth of writing material as well as several benefits. Pack wolves receive a +1 in combat and reduce stillbirth percentages in affiliated mothers. Packs receive their own discord channels for coordinating events. Each pack will have a page denoting rules and enlisted members. Alphas are responsible for keeping this page updated, as it will be used to determine whether a pack disbands.

Alphas on Folklore have unique power and responsibility. They manage their pack pages OOCly and the members of the packs ICly; they are also responsible for making allies and enemies. As such, alphas must be cognizant of IC gameplay mechanisms such as wars and rank challenges. Alphas may wage war, but they may also have war waged upon them. Equally likely are rank challenges.

It is important that all players, and especially alphas, keep in mind that IC gameplay mechanisms should not be conflated with OOC feelings. Wars and rank challenges are functions of IC gameplay, and not places for OOC emotions. However, because these IC situations can be stressful for everyone involved, it is always courteous to reach out to the defending pack or alpha before wars or rank challenges and be transparent about your plans.

Alpha(s) (2 max in a pack)
2+ years of age
Have 50 posts
Finish a thread with each potential member that discusses joining a pack.
Note: Groups of 3+ do not count and this requirement may be split across 2 alphas.
Have at least 5 members aged 1+ years
Have one claimed territory

Note: each region may only have 2 packs at one time

Once the requirements are met, post in the updates channel in discord to request your pack.
Pack Activity Requirement
Each season, a pack will experience a pack activity requirement. These will either be post pools or quests.

Staff will post in the pack discord with the event for the season. Events will always alternate post pool/quest/post pool/quest or vice versa.

Up to four users (two alphas, two betas) within a pack may run pack activity events.

Post Pool
create a thread in Maintenance where pack members may link their posts. Any post made by a pack member during the IC season counts. Reach the required number to complete the requirement.
50 posts

< 1 year established

100 posts

< 2 years established

150 posts

3+ years established

complete the three steps given to you by staff in the adventure packet. Each event has a due date and the thread or raid must be created by then. All steps must have participation from at least 5 pack members and the quest is intended to last throughout the season.

Threads do not have to be finished but there must be entrance posts from 5 pack members
Raids must be finished and a thread made where participants make one post reflecting on the events.

Example Step One - create a thread investigating a dead body at the edge of your pack territory. Complete by August 29th.
Example Step Two - create a pack meeting discussing the dead body. Complete by September 29th.
Example Step Three - run a raid where your pack fights bandits on your borders. Complete the raid and reflection thread by October 31st.

Pack Land
If a thread is made on pack lands (border included) and one of the participants is a non-member, any pack member may enter the thread.

Alphas can enter any thread in pack land regardless of who is involved.

Packs disband for one of three reasons:

1. Fall beneath 5 members (alphas included)
2. Fail to meet the activity requirement
3. There is no leader due to the alpha dying/disappearing and no beta being present to take over.

In order to reform, all of the thread requirements must be completed again.
