Description

Setting Control

Image


The main purpose of D.I is to set and control the setting. It will be awkward if for some players it was raining and for others it was sunny. I don't know about you but, that annoys the crap out of me. So on rare occasions, I will set up the setting. What the weather is, what season it is, and if the whole group agrees on it. I will make a time skip post. So we are all organized.

Disaster/Conflict creator

Let's admit it. Rps get boring time to time. So I will also use the divine intervention to spice things up. Create a conflict everyone can take part in. For example, I will make post saying that there is no pray in the territory. The only way to eat is to steal another pride's food.

NPC

Image


I will play as any NPC you think is needed or I think is needed. I won't this too often. For example if we were to go to war with another pride. I would play as the rival cats. So you don't have to rp as two or more characters. But, if you want to do your npc-ing then more power to you. I will only be a npc when it makes sense or you request a npc.


Image

Killing inactivity.

Image


Let's say Bob made a character called Zulu. Bob came to me saying that he quits this roleplay. Then I will make post saying how Zulu got a terrible disease and died. Letting everyone know, that Zulu and Bob went byebye. Or if you want. We can have Zulu be murdered. And then the whole group will have to solve a murder.

I promise to intervene divinely

Season: Dry | Weather: Surprisingly cool | Location(s): Everyone at the Faction | Event: Important pride meeting called by the "Leader".



The air today was nice and the opportunity of prey was plentiful. It was one of those days, where even the elders could get giddy. Hunters and warriors forced on hunting duty could take it easy. The other prides were far off dealing with their own business. No one has yet to detect Kanta's invasion. So the leopard can breath easy as well. In fact it was one of those days that were romantic. Yes the cloud of death was looming over Long Tale but, was dissipating. Some doubted Nevaeh's ability to lead, but surely the Zorlin blood would kick in. And the lioness will be just as great as her mother. Or maybe even better. Many wiseones would say this is a blessed day.

This is why this meeting is so off putting. Neveah has called a meeting of emergency - of great importance. All cats, no matter their duties, must attend. Everyone can see Neveah standing on the waterfall's ledge. Doing her best not to slip and doing her best not let her calm crack.

I listen to other winds. I talk to other faces. I feel another presence.


Nevaeh had all the same features her mother had. A stranger could infer the Nevaeh was fierce, strong, maybe even intimidating. The feline was strong but, not in any way most would assumed. She was mentally and spiritually strong. However she's was a pacifist - like most wiseones. In fact she can be a pushover and too willing to compromise. Nevaeh was a lover and a teacher. Not a fighter or vicious dominating leader. Rarely does she enjoy taking the lead. I'm no expert! I'm not ready for any kind of leadership! I'm too young! I'm inexperienced! I know this is not my path! I know it in my soul. This time I'm not wrong.

Nevaeh couldn't keep still as she gazed down at her peers. Most, if not all, the same age as her. She closed her eyes and purred anxiety away. Tell me Great One. Tell me ancestors. Tell me which one of is the leader so, I can call them up. The lioness opened her light amber eyes. Her ears perked up and twisted in 180 degrees. Her whiskers twitched in anticipation. She looked deeply at Mowgli then Betyr. Two strong and capable males. Nevaeh went over Vale and Nina. Felines that tend isolate themselves from everyone else. But that doesn't mean that they don't have potential. Nevaeh than took a look at Seryn and Akinyi. Amazing hunters, ten times better than her and Nuru combined. Both females would be great leaders. Food wouldn't be too much of worry. Speaking of Nuru. Nevaeh dazed stare went over to her best friend. The thought of him leading made her shake her head. His attitude would motivate the pride to do anything. speak. A humble whisper with no body, glittered around the lion's ear.

"I'm sorry but, the winds take me elsewhere. I know as a Zorlin descendent it was expected of me to become leader. However I will remain as a wiseone. We all will choose and compete to be leader. Well, I won't be competing. If anyone wants to take my position, then please speak now." Nevaeh's legs were too weak to stand. While she sat, she wrapped her tail around her. Her calm falling apart. The female's muscle quivered as the weight of hers words settled on her head.

Seryn

With a successful mid-morning hunt under claw, a well fed, happy Pride, and beautiful weather to take it easy in. It was the start of a wonderful day, Seryn thought. And perhaps a hope that the cloud of death and sickness looming over Long Tale in recent moons was dissipating, if not completely gone soon. Yes... It was a wonderful day indeed. Easily, she began peacefully snoozing in the shade, curled in as tight of a ball as one could manage with silly long legs and tail intertwined. She could have stayed like that all day, until a gentle prod and news of an emergency meeting woke her from her slumber.

"I got it. I'm up, I'm up. Seryn yawned wide, flashing teeth. She stood uneasily with still sleepy limbs, shaking herself vigorously awake. Blearily eyeing Nevaeh at a distance, waiting at the waterfall's edge for everyone to gather for the meeting. She looked nervous, rightfully so, being her first meeting, an emergency one at that. She took a few more moments to blink the sleep away, and rub with a forearm the sticky sand funking the edges of her eyes away, before moving herself closer to the heart of the faction and growing crowd, settling herself at the edge to wait for Betyr to join her.

Betyr


[size=100][font=Pristine]Betyr was anything but Nuru's warrior pal, also returning from a peaceful and quiet border patrol. He gave Vale an apologetic look and a flick of his ears for the young cougar's attempt at being the 'bigger' cat as it was by ignoring Nuru's behavior. And politely waited for Vale to turn around and enter the heart of the faction towards the meeting, before squeezing himself through the entrance. Seryn was waiting for him near the back of the crowd, with a friendly tail whack across his broad chest and a ridiculous grin to match. "I thought you were going to miss it. Hunting was a breeze this morning, Akinyi and I returned early." "Good fortune, I suppose... Come on, sit down." He purred softly, as he settled down himself on his haunches easily. Seryn took longer to get her tail out of the way and wrapped around her front, as she eventually sat down a hair in front of him. Trying her best to be attentive, but Betyr well knew her mind could be a million other places by now. They waited for the meeting to start...

"I'm sorry but, the winds take me elsewhere. I know as a Zorlin descendant it was expected of me to become leader. However I will remain as a wiseone. We all will choose and compete to be leader. Well, I won't be competing. If anyone wants to take my position, then please speak now."

There was a moment of complete silence as the news settled on every cat in the pride. Complete shock was one word for what Betyr was feeling, Seryn couldn't keep still as she fidgeted uncomfortably and finally unable to hold it back. She glanced back in confusion to the silent Asiatic Lion behind her, in stark confusion. "I don't understand... Betyr, why?" She whispered, looking for answers but Betyr didn't have anything for her... Or for that matter, himself. He shook his head gently at her, and beckoned her to turn back around to pay attention. It short order, Nuru spoke up full of commanding fire, and had a few fierce words at Vale for attempting to depart. Mowgli spoke up, questioning Nuru, throwing more heat into the fire of confusion raging through the pride. Lastly Nina joined in, more fueled by her fear of Nuru leading than anything else. Humm...

Abruptly, a deep coughing growl of a voice after Nina's latest additions to the emergency meetings discussion, "Peace." It startled the nearby Seryn to her feet in hasty alarm, glancing behind her shoulder in confusion as Betyr stood to his full height. "Betyr?" She whispered softly. Betyr ignored her and remained stone-faced as the latest chattering dimmed, before speaking again. Eyeing politely the loud simmering Nuru in the center of the fraction, Mowgli up above in a low branch of a tree, and the normally quiet Nina; and then he focused on the nervous Nevaeh above perched beside the waterfall, and only her as his eyes narrowed in judgement.

"Nevaeh..." He began, pausing in emphasis of finding the correct words to say. Ancestor's help me now. "Speaking honestly, I feel the pride is at a disadvantage in this situation. I do not think we as a whole understand your decision of remaining a Wise One instead of becoming our Leader as a Zorin descendant should. I will not ask you to explain unless you wish to give us closure? The pride will respect your wishes of course. However... It is only right that if you wish to pursue the position at a later time, I believe it should be open to you, in respect of all our ancestor's before us. Or, if you have cubs one day, they should be given the opportunity to become our Leader in time as is their birth right." Betyr finished. His eyes left the younger lioness for a moment, too give a soft nod to both Nuru and Nina in acknowledgment. "This being said, the future Leader of the pride should understand that the leadership may only last one generation. It-..." "It is only fair."

Betyr wrinkled his lips in a soft smile towards Seryn, with a snort of agreement. Finally, he glanced back to Nevaeh, with an anxious twitch of his tail. "If it is to be a competition, or better yet upon your own decision, then I will offer myself for the position. But... I would follow Nina. Nuru will make a fine cat one day, but leadership would suit him ill."
It was the truth. Nina may be far too gentle of a choice if their was a war brewing, but a strong adviser or warrior unit would aid her in that manner. She was a quiet cat, but well versed in taking care of the fraction youth and home, and he'd seen her work well with anyone in his times of doing Den Maid duty as it was required. Nuru was a fool, but a young fool. Age, or a mate perhaps, would eventually temper him down. He was a good warrior, and would make a strong leader in time. But the time was not ripe for him. As for himself, well... He would serve as necessary to protect the pride if that was what it came too.
