The cure has been found! Wolves on Anikira are recovering from the disease and life is moving forward with the promise of pups in many packs. And yet darkness looms on the horizon, daring the creatures of Anikira to relax and allow themselves to get comfortable once more.
Hello everyone! This is your formal warning to please WRAP UP ALL IC THREADS WITHIN TWO WEEKS.
On the late evening of Saturday, November 19th and the wee morning hours of November 20th, our site will go down into maintenance mode for a few hours, and ALL threads will be archived. This period of maintenance will not be for long (when we say a few hours, we really mean it) and we do NOT anticipate any delay, as we are proactively working to get everything set up ahead of time.
Additionally, please do not badger staff members with questions regarding the drought plot or the maintenance period. We won’t be answering any of them. ;)
Again, ALL THREADS WILL BE ARCHIVED ON NOVEMBER 19TH. We would recommend you finish them BEFORE the 19th, and not on that day, if AT ALL possible. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS! You have been warned.

This is the second warning for the total thread archive and maintenance mode period. Please read the post above to familiarize yourself with these updates. Additionally, note the previous rule changes in regards to territory claim, and understand that loss of territory can occur prior to the maintenance period. Also, we have another teaser image for you… ;)
Also, another HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!
We are also introducing a NEW BREED for this plot! Without revealing too many details, this is what we can tell you. The top ten candy earners, regardless of team, will be allowed the opportunity to create one. If you are in the top ten but would like to opt-out of creation, please let me know as soon as possible. The remaining slots will be raffled off. We will be allotting TWENTY total wolves to be created, and Nile will be designing all of them in the interest of fluidity of design. If you would like to be entered to win a character slot and the ability to create this limited edition breed, please post below. Winners will be announced on November 18th. A brief overview of what their histories should entail will be released just after the changes are dropped and all posts are archived.

Uniquely, their point markings are heritable in any color.

Some answers to questions we may get asked:
We WILL NOT be releasing the name of the breed until after the total archive takes place.
You DO NOT need to purchase a character slot. They are included in this raffle.
You MAY enter the raffle even if you were not a part of the Skeleton War event!
There is NO COST to enter the raffle. Names will be drawn from a hat, with no audition required.
This breed WILL NOT be creatable again in the foreseeable future. This is a one-time thing.
We would like these wolves to be an integral part of the current plot. As such, we would prefer they be created very closely following the total archive.
You MAY design their personalities outside of the “typical” breed standard. All wolves are individuals! You may also begin prep of their personalities ahead of time.
The heritable traits for this breed are DILUTION as well as POINT MARKINGS. They can be inherited together (in one pup) or separately (pup could get one or the other) in future litters.
When you find out you get a wolf, feel free to plot with others and create a backstory that you all agree on! It is likely that this group would all know one another IC.
The only lore behind this breed that I am at liberty to share is the following: all have descended from a single pair of ancestors (named Jhaartael and Islynora) many generations removed. Think Adam and Eve. Kinda.

Jaidah is one of the albinos on the site, a brand new character brought to life by a brand new player. It is interesting to see how such a pure looking being could be wrapped up in the angsty claws that is Irkalla! We will definitely be staying in-tune with this character to see just what heights Bird is able to take her!
We would like to offer a large thank you to several members that put significant work into the new design of the forum. Thank you to Zen for the work on images for the skin. Thank you to the stock providers for this skin: AdenarKaren on DeviantArt and Kalliysgraphy on Deviantart. We would also like to thank Tril and Bacon For work on the coding and a big thank you to
Nile for her work on the map and board images!
