Ethyria

life is too short not to live it up a little


Led by Mistress Celeste Akizora, Ethyria is a chaotic good pack that lies within the confines of the desert.
Unbothered by the whims and dramatics of the world around them, their pack's goal is to provide a luxurious home to others where they can seek comfort and relaxation.
Spending most of their time crafting and socializing, one can expect to see open invitations to parties, hunts, and feasts in the future.

Territories

General Rules

☽ The Mistress is not a dictator but should be respected. Members are welcome to challenge her rulings if they deem it unjust.
☽ The Mister (if one is appointed) and Heir/esses are to be respected and will be left in charge during the Mistress’ absence.
☽ There is to be NO unnecessary violence of any sort without reason. Maims, kidnapping, and raping are not allowed and anyone found to be doing such acts will be demoted to Captive and punished accordingly.
☽ No harm is to be doled out to Captives unless their crime is heinous and unfathomable. Captive duties will be basically to be a servant to the Mistress, at her beck and call, and to do whatever she or her Consort(s) wish.
☽ Captives are welcome to challenge/discuss their captivity terms after 2 Weeks IRL time in which they may barter for their freedom.
☽ Raids are welcome on friendly terms - we do not raid to seriously injure others. The intention of raids are to gather resources and build ties with other packs; do not take advantage of this.
☽ Trespassing is not allowed. Anyone who is not a member of Ethyria that wishes to cross the borders must request an escort by a Tier 3 or higher member. Anyone caught trespassing will be held as a Captive until the Mistress sees fit to release them.
Joining and leaving the pack will be decided by the Mistress. You must request a meeting with her to discuss why you wish to join or leave.
☽ Tier 3 and above ranks may be challenged for in whatever way you see fit. The Mistress will have the last say, no matter the outcome. Tier 3 Ranks do require an Expert or Master level in the according skill.
☽ All packs who interact with Ethyria will be seen as Friends AND Enemies to Ethyria. It is ignorant to turn a blind eye to those who appear trusting on the outside. With that note, the Mistress encourages all packs to come visit Ethyria and spend time within the pack for fun, skill building, and whatever else one wishes to partake in.
☽ Litters are to be requested and approved by the Mistress prior to conceiving. While we wish to build Ethyria’s numbers, we do not want to bring life into the world that will not be loved, cared for, or cherished if conceived on accident.
Pack events are NOT mandatory for everyone in the pack. These are simply opportunities for everyone to get to know each other and bond.
☽ Pack meetings ARE mandatory for everyone in the pack. A post due date will be notified in the thread. Please expect one, at minimum, every other season for checkins, info gathering, and promotions. If you cannot attend themeeting, please notify Bunni through Discord DMs!
☽ All pack rules are subject to change at any time.

Pack Events


Spring
Extreme Hunt - As winter fades to spring and life presents itself anew, the Mistress will hold a pack hunt for anyone to join. This will specifically target a Large or Extra Large prey animal for them to bring down and hold a large feast. The intention of this event is to bring Ethyria closer together through skill building and camaraderie.
Summer
Skill Test - During the hot months when the weather is at its worst, Ethyria will venture out into Boreas to test their skills. They can do this as one large group or break off into smaller groups depending on who is attempting to build what. This time is for young wolves and new members to find a path in Ethyria and start building connections.
Fall
Harvest Feast - Open to Ethyria and invited guests. The Mistress hopes to invite leaders of other packs to Ethyria on occasion for relationship building and open communication. During this feast, members of Ethyria will continue to work on their skills and conduct a large feast where they get a chance to interact with other pack leaders and their trusted guests to share food, drink, and conversation.
Winter
Solstice Ball - Open to all packs and loners! Join Ethyria to dance the night away with your special someone under the stars. Most Festively Dressed will be crowned Solstice Queen and King. This event is intended to bring wolves from all over Boreas and Auster to Ethyria for good food, merry music, and a night full of dancing.

Events are not required and may not occur depending on activity and availability. Other events may be added at later dates.
Any pack member is encouraged and welcome to suggest new pack events!

Celeste - While she spends most nights curled up with Kuroki, she has set aside a Mistress den where she can plan, delegate, and do other pack business in private.
