Introduction

The local werewolf pack in the small town of Woodbury, South Carolina has a ritual; it happens every time the pack starts running low in numbers which is usually every ten years. You see, when the pack needs more pack mates, each wolf in the pack picks a human and “claims them.” Claiming them as in stealing them away from their human lives days before the full moon to then change them on said night of the moon. This is usually done against the humans will and the pack keeps the humans locked in the house like the prisoners they are until the night of the full moon. Then, the pack makes it a game.
The evening of the full moon, before dark when they must shift, the pack releases their human. Due to the fact that their home is out in the middle of nowhere (surrounded by forest at that), they will let the humans ago, giving them a head start to run. The pack then shifts and hunts down their human to change them. It is the thrill of the hunt and who can change their human first. The first to bite their human and change them then howls, signaling their victory.
It has been almost fifteen years since the last Claiming. The pack is small and consists only of six wolves, that including the alpha. So, he has announced a Claiming to be scheduled the next full moon. The wolves have already set their sights on the human they want and claimed them. The role-play will start with the humans waking up at the packs home and the wolves there to explain to them what all is going on.

Things About the Werewolves::
• They can shift at will, bur every full moon they are forced to shift.

• During the full moon is the only time a person can be turned into a werewolf. They must be bit and the wolf must stay with them during the transformation process. However, a newborn werewolf will not be able to shift until after the next full moon. After at they shift uncontrollably for the next few days.

• The shift is painful for newborn wolves and fairly uncomfortable for even the older ones.

• A werewolves eyes are a yellow/golden color in their wolf forms. This is how they look different than regular wolves. When angered, panicked, or about to shift a werewolves eyes will change to this color in their human forms. Older wolves can do this at will.

• Also, like wolves, werewolves can elongate and flash their canines in a declaration of dominance in their human forms. Alphas do this mostly.

• Werewolves, in their wolf forms, are only a little larger than actual wolves. They are not like Twilight wolves.

• In their wolf forms they cannot talk telepathically, but those in a pack can share mental images, to show where a kill is, where danger is, etc.

• Werewolves can control themselves when they shift, but during the full moon it is a lot harder and their animal instincts really try to kick in more-so than usual.

• Werewolves, even in their human forms, have a lot of wolf-like qualities.

• Silver cannot kill a werewolf, unless getting them in the heart, but if it pierces their skin it does irritate it and can cause them to blister.

• Wolf banes is poisonous to werewolves, and if ingested, is most likely fatal.

• They are fiercely protective and loyal to those in their pack and that they claim.

• Werewolves mate for life, like a wolf. When their partner dies they never find another and grieve almost to the point of death.

• Werewolves are stronger, faster, and have a better sense of smell, hearing, etc. than humans, even in their human forms.

• They heal faster than the average human.
Might be adding more, check back!






The Characters


I’d rather you not change the face claim, but if you must at least run it by me first and provide a gif. Once all the characters are in, we’ll be figuring out which werewolf claims what human. It isn’t determined yet and I will want everyone’s input. :)

The Character Sheet

I’m not giving a layout for the character sheet. Make it look the way you want. However, make sure you have everything below on it. Please and Thank you! Remember to use plenty of pictures and gifs, including their wolf form. Humans can link a picture to what their character would look like, as a wolf. The nicer looking the character sheet, the more likely I am to accept your character and gush about how lovely it is. :P

The Rules


One:
This is an advanced role-play. That means: no text talk, proper grammar, punctuation, and so forth. No one-liners. If you can only post one sentence per post then this role-play is not for you. Be able to post at least three good, solid paragraphs per post and per character, unless posting is slow or you have the dreaded writers’ block (I get it often myself, so no worries).

Two:
With Rule One being said, this is also a mature role-play. If you cannot handle some violent scenes, blood, and other things that come along with maturity, then this role-play isn’t for you.

Three:
Keep in check RPG rules. I don't mind cursing frequently, this is a "Semi-Realistic" role-play, and after all, cursing is to be expected. Along with that, romance is also to be expected. However, once the clothes come off you need to do “Fades to Black” or something like that. You know the rules guys and gals.

Four:
Please do not join then vanish the next day or after a few posts. If you must be gone a few days or so, please let me know through OOC or through PM. I will do the same. You don’t know how many role-play I’ve been in where people just vanish and then it dies. Not cool! There are other people to consider who are excited about this. So, keep everyone updated. STAY ACTIVE IN OOC CHAT!

Five:
Reserve characters through OOC before submitting them, please and thank you! You have a 48 hour reservation period before your spot is open back up for grabs. When you go to reserve a character please put your favorite book title somewhere on the post of your reservation where it will CLEARLY be seen, so I know you read EVERYTHING!

Six:
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me either through OOC/PM/IM. I’d prefer PM but it doesn’t matter. Also, if you have any ideas shoot them at me. I’m up for whatever!
