Wolves of Beinn Eighe ~ M/7 ~ Accepting

Post by Couviani » Mon Jun 12, 2017 3:28 pm

❈ Wolves ❈ of ❈ Beinn ❈ Eighe ❈

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
― Sylvia Plath


Welcome, to the Wolves of Beinn Eighe.
Website: http://wolvesofbeinneighe.freeforums.net/

First, a note from yours truly;

I wanted to create a pack which anyone could join, no matter their RP skill: It’s something you get better at with time, and practice. We can work on it together, if you try to keep it to at least a couple of sentences per post, you’ll be golden. It also doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a member on WQ, whether you joined five years ago or five minutes ago. I want it to be a forum for anyone and everyone to express themselves creatively through RP and other means. Think of it as an artistic assemblage.

It's also a cool way to be able to share a little of Scotland’s history and culture with the rest of the world. It’s such a beautiful country and I think it deserves more recognition, other than the stereotypes associated with it and its people.

Humans will exist (this is so that you are able to freely choose the species of wolf, for example; arctic wolf, and still have a legitimate way of them having been in the UK, I.e. humans having that species brought over.) It will be set in the past, before the wolves were wiped out in Scotland, there may also be slight differences in history/geography. So, an alternate universe, but not so different from ours. It will be semi-realistic. There’s hierarchy, longer life spans, intelligence/knowledge a normal wolf wouldn’t possess etc, but nothing too extraordinary.

--

The pack makes its home at the base of ‘Beinn Eighe’ (BEYN EEAR), a peak belonging to the ‘Torridon Hills’, found in the Scottish Highlands. The pack’s main freshwater source is the beautiful Loch Maree, to the East of Beinn Eighe.

The pack’s origins lie in the mountains of Am Monadh Ruadh (AM MONNA-ROO-A,) their original home being made on Beinn Mheadhoin (BEYN VEE-AN,) approximately 146 miles from the current territory. They had tense relationships with neighbouring packs, increased due to the prime location of their territory. Eventually the tension became too much and despite the attempts of each leader to pacify their members; they were unable to prevent the oncoming violence. After 2 days it finally stopped, leaving many dead and more wounded. The surviving chieftains managed to call for a treaty, before returning to their homes.

The Pack of Beinn Mheadhoin left the slopes of their territory. Their home had become a graveyard, and they couldn’t live there knowing what had happened. They travelled for many miles until they came upon the deserted Beinn Eighe where they settled down, determined to start afresh.

Ever since the treaty, the packs have held a yearly gathering at a meeting place on Beinn Mheadhoin, marked by the Shelter Stone, an enormous boulder topped by a cairn (human made stack of stones.) These days, even packs who had not been a part of the original fight join the gatherings. It is not mandatory to go every year, however many of the packs attempt the journey at least once every 3 years, depending on the distance they must travel. Pack’s that are closer tend to attend each year. The gathering is held during the Summer months, as this is when a large herd of red deer make their way through Am Monadh Ruadh. Some wolves are known to spend some time at the former territory of the Wolves of Beinn Mheadhoin (now Beinn Eighe) re-named “Meadhoin Comraich” (VEE-AN COMRAICH) or “Meadhoin Sanctuary.”

Not all of the packs however, are happy with this arrangement. There are two packs, “Wolves of Ben Alder,” and “Loch a 'phasgan” (“Lake Pack”) who still harbour feelings of animosity towards their fellow Highland dwellers.

❈Pack ❈ Rules ❈

Respect all members: Always.

Do not spam; on this thread or on the pack website.

Don’t stir up unnecessary drama between members.

Follow WolfQuest Guidelines. Which can be found here: http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.p ... =20100&#41

Follow the additional RP and website guidelines. Which can be found here: http://wolvesofbeinneighe.freeforums.ne ... /rules&#41

I understand that real life is far more important than wolfquest/online RP, so you won’t be expected to be active 24/7. All we ask is that you inform us of any prolonged absences.

Do not request ranks that are “not available for request.” The higher ranks must be earned.

Did I mention respect? I did? Well I’m listing it again. Any abuse, will not be tolerated.

❈ Ranking ❈

Chieftain (Not available for request)
The pack’s leader. Chieftainship is hereditary. It can be tough for the Chieftains as they must balance power with understanding. They care very much for their members, and their decisions will always be based on what is best for its members. They rely on the Capitean and Bidh luchd-ceannais to help lead and protect the pack.
- Ciara <Couviani>-

Caiptean (Not available for request)
The Caiptean is the Chieftain’s ultimate confidant. They are highly dedicated to the pack and its interests. This wolf has proven their loyalty and strength countless times. The Bidh luchd-ceannais report to him/her as well as the Chieftain.
--

Bidh luchd-ceannais (Not available for request)
The Chieftain’s third in command. These wolves have worked hard and gained the trust of not only their leader, but the other members of the pack. They help keep the pack in order, and act as an aid of counsel to the chieftain. They each lead a sub-rank of the pack and have excelled in the rank they lead. There are 4 Bidh luchd-ceannais.
Luaidhe sealgair
The leader of the sealgairean.
--
Ghaisgeach
The leader of the saighdearan.
--
Ceannard na ro-theachdair
The leader of na ro-theachdair.
--
Draoidh
The leader of the luibh-allaidh.
--

Comhairle (Not available for request.)
Kin members of high regard. Generally these wolves have done something which has impressed the pack. They are the first point of contact for minor disputes or concerns, and have a similar role to that of a jury during any kind of trial.
--

Kin
The main body of the pack. There are many sub-ranks, however pack members are not isolated to their one job. If they specialise in border protection, they can also partake in hunting and vice-versa.

Sealgairean
Pack members who specialise in hunting. They work closely with na ro-theachdair.
--
Saighdearan
Pack members who specialise in fighting and protecting the borders. They work very closely with na ro-theachdair.
- Telemakhos <DerpBacon>-
--
Na ro-theachdair
Pack memebers who specialise in scouting and patrolling the territory borders alongside the ghaisgich. They also keep tabs on the whereabouts of nearby herds for the sealgairean.
- Lucian <Jay32>-
- Phoenix <yaogai>-
- Fenella <Isela>-
--
Luibh-allaidh
Pack members who specialise in the process of medicinal herbal remedies. They’re able to treat bouts of sickness, anxiety, and other ailments with the use of plant matter.
- Bardou <N/A> -
--
Glic fheadhainn
The oldest, and generally wisest of the pack members. They have been around for many years and help out the different sub-ranks, depending on their physical abilities. They are able to offer guidance and advise not only to the pack members in general, but also to the Chieftain.
--
Preantas
When the youngsters turn about 12 months old they become known as “preantas”. These wolves will then be assigned a mentor in their chosen discipline, whilst also experiencing the other aspects of pack life. Depending on their progress they can be integrated into their chosen sub-rank from around 7 months later.
--
Cuileanan
The youngest members of the pack, they are naïve and unable to defend themselves, therefore they rely fully on the pack for protection.
-Luns <Luna_Moon35>-
--
Lag aon (Not available for request)
Traitors or prisoners (almost certainly members on warnings who still have the chance to redeem themselves.) The pack has no intentions of starting a new fight with others, but there are still wolves out there who aren’t necessarily keen to keep the peace. These wolves are kept under constant surveillance until the pack has come to an agreement concerning their fate.

--


Caidreabh
Packs who have created a peaceful allegiance and fellowship with the Wolves of Beinn Eighe. They are respected and have sanctuary in our territory if needed.

Character’s name: Telemakhos
Character’s age: 3 years old
Character’s gender: male
Physical Description (Written or image): Telemakhos' pelt bears different shades of brown. His eyes are brown as well. He is tall and a little bulky.
Personality: Telemakhos is a determined and on-task male. He puts his work above all and values the life of his packmates over his own. He is cunning and calculating, preferring strategy over brute force. Despite this, he may seem to drift into his own world instead of factoring in other aspects of something. He is headstrong and is a young wolf at heart. Though he may seem intelligent, he is not very wise and lacks a bit of common sense.
Biography: Telemakhos was born the sole heir of a minute family pack that traveled the Highlands. A small group, they were able to provide for themselves with ease. Like many a young, healthy male, he dispersed from his family unit when he was two years old. His wandering paws led him to the Wolves of Beinn Eighe, and he pledged his allegiance and life to them.

Hi there, nice to meet you!

Both applications have been accepted. I hope you don't mind being placed into the rank of "Saighdearan" for the time being? As the rank of Ghaisgeach is one that is earned. Just join the website when you get the time and we'll go from there :)

I thought both your pack and your character were very interesting! Hopefully our website can look as appealing as yours eventually!

Hello, hello ^-^

Accepted, welcome :) I hope you enjoy it here. You're welcome to join the website when you have the chance, it's still rather basic at this time, but it's a start :) (it's mainly the skinning I need to work on rather than the content of the site, I'm still figuring out some ideas.)

You're welcome :]

I'd also like to welcome Bardou to the pack. He is a friend from outside WQ, so whilst not active on the thread, he will be on the website. (He obviously won't see this welcome but it's still nice ha-ha.)

My pleasure, Luna ^_^ Welcome!

When you have some free time, if you could; join the website (If you haven't already.) Post your character's information in "Meet the Pack." Then you can join the role play when you're ready. We've only really just started, so don't worry about feeling like you're going to be left behind or anything ^_^

Character’s name: phoenix
Character’s age: 3 years
Character’s gender: female
Physical Description (Written or image): her build is standard for a canine of her species; she stands at about 65 centimeters at the shoulder thanks to her slender bone structure. her long legs and narrow shoulders allow phoenix to reach top speeds quickly and efficiently, and accompanied with her long snout, she is the average image of a red wolf.
phoenix's coat is a palette of various shades, with a deep red as the base of her pelt that then blends into a dark brown hue through-out her body. this pattern continues to her tail, which ends as a black tip. her underbelly is a beige color that makes its way down to her paws, where the color darkens.
Personality: phoenix is a perceptive canine that constantly is attentive to the environment around her and using this, she can adapt quickly. she is a wolf that is not too quiet but not too outgoing - she pushes herself for the perfect balance, almost to a fault. phoenix is cautious around mere acquaintances, and as a result hesitates and even maintains a whole new persona, one that is icy and careful. this faux persona is, of course, the complete opposite of the reality; she is warm and caring. phoenix, never given the opportunity to serve to something greater than herself, jumps at the chance to prove her loyalty to anything or anyone.
Biography: after her mother left her and her now-deceased sister at age one, she's been fighting to survive and find a home ever since. [wip]
Desired Rank: Na ro-theachdair
Any extra information: this seems like a very well thought-out roleplay, and i'd love to join!

Character’s name: Fenella (Gaelic for 'white shoulders' or 'fair shoulders')
Character’s age: 3 years 5 months
Character’s gender: Female
Physical Description (Written or image): Ref 1, Ref 2
Dark brown and black coat with lighter patches on her shoulders and scattered across her body. Slender, yet sturdy build. Set against her dark physique, her eyes are a striking gold with a twinge of faint green that becomes more visible the closer one gets to her.
Personality: Fenella is not one to beat around the bush. She gets straight to the point, which can make her brutally honest. Her honesty makes her very loyal, and she will follow her leaders with the utmost respect and diligence. She is more of a follower than a leader, but if her leaders deem it necessary for her to take up a higher position, she will do it and try to uphold their wishes to the best of her ability.
While her body may look feminine, her personality certainly is not. She isn't afraid to get her paws dirty, and loves roughhousing. However, there can be moments that show a softer side to her, but these moments only make themselves present when she feels comfortable enough around someone to let her guard down. She is observant with her surroundings, as well as body language. She can be a bit sarcastic and satirical to the point where it may seem daunting to those who don't know her as well, but it's all in good fun, at least to her perspective.

Biography: Fenella was born into a small pack in a litter of four. The adults consisted of her mother and father, one older sibling, and her father's brother. Her first year was peaceful and uneventful as she grew and learned from the adults, observing and taking in as much information as possible from them. During her second winter, the pack caught mange. Gravely weakened, they were prime targets for a neighboring pack. The rival pack saw an opportunity, and invaded her pack's territory. She ran when the rival pack charged them, and ended up getting split up from her family. Alone and frightened, she howled continuously, hoping against hope that a family member would answer. The only answer she received was of multiple wolves she didn't know, all coming from the area she and her family fled from. Tail tucked and ears back, she turned away, and trotted into unknown lands. Later that year, she would come upon the wolves of Beinn Eighe, and pledge her allegiance to them. The thought of her family still possibly being out there somewhere lingers in her mind.
Desired Rank: Na ro-theachdair
Any extra information: Will add if request is accepted <: I was very much reeled in by the Scottish themes here! This looks like it could be interesting and a lot of fun to play out!

Also:

I've got a lot of information ready to be posted onto the website (tomorrow at some point as I currently only have my mobile until then.) Which I hope will be of interest. It includes a more informative look into the packs history, as well as the two packs mentioned in the first post. ^_^
