Abaven

Strong back, soft front, wild heart.

Abaven was formed by Bass Destruction in Winter of Year 3.

Abaven is a lawful good pack, focused on helping others strive to achieve greatness and peace within themselves. With many of the traditional ranks, there’s a place for every good to neutral aligned wolf. With three large territories, Abaven has plenty of room for its wolves to grow. It’s a tranquil place, where family groups flourish and wolves hone their skills. Abaven is neutral in its standings, with trade alliances with most of the packs in the land. It has long welcomed orphans or wolves seeking shelter. However, it’s also likely to stand up for wrongs committed against its members and allies - their warriors and hunters are fierce, backed by skilled healers.

General Rules

✪ If trespassers are found within the pack boundaries without permission, any wolf within the pack may attack on sight if they are suspicious of ill intent. However, if a wolf below tier two commits a maim on an intruder without sufficient reason, they will be subject to punishment (may include stripping of rank, menial labor, etc. depending on the crime).
✪ No members of Abaven are allowed to attack other packs or to start a war, this will lead to the exile of the accused.
✪ All wolves are expected to show up for training and meetings. Failure to do so will result in demotion.
✪ Fighting within the pack, besides training, is unacceptable. Any wolf is welcome to come forward with an issue that they find unsolvable and can seek assistance from any high ranking wolf.
✪ A pup may choose their area of study at six months old.
✪ Wolves that have been missing in action (not posted in any in-character board for 3+ months) will be moved to "missing/inactive." If you choose to return, let an alpha know so that your rank can be discussed or restored. If previously discussed amongst involved players/characters, wolves can still be assumed as part of Abaven ranks in the background.
✪ There are no rules for choosing a mate or breeding inside/outside of the pack, however it is preferred the children will be raised in Abaven. The safety of the children is the pack's priority.
✪ At one year of age, an adolescent may declare their intent - to leave the pack or request a higher rank in their chosen field of expertise.
✪ Mentor relationships are strongly encouraged but not enforced. There may be instances where wolves are paired together for IC events.
