Specialty suggestions
Cat Burglar - Has an x% chance of going undetected when a character is trespassing in an attempt to steal from a pack (only applies to items & resources, etc. does not apply to trying to steal other packs members) (fighting/navigation)
Poacher - Has an x% chance of going undetected(?)/chance of success when attempting to poach livestock from a pack (potentially even during a raid maybe?) (Navigation or hunting)
Pirate - Provides a morale boost and gives those fighting alongside their crew an extra boost during a siege or raid (possibly on the attacking side?) (fighting)

If these are too similar to what's already in play, feel free to tweak them, also free to change what they do, bonuses, etc).

alongside the penalties for age in fights, perhaps also a penalty for being over a certain age when they would be naturally considered a senior, and then even a deeper penalty for being too old?
Grimshaw has a large, fluffy, and curled tail that may not always be shown in his art.
He also has a silver horseshoe septum ring and a black studded collar that he is always wearing, but may not be shown in the art, either.
Wolverine and Howler Monkey companions are assumed to be nearby if he's off pack territory.

A companion award for By the skin of my teeth for the losing fighter(s), maybe something like "Almost got em" or something along those lines.

When it comes to having a character with two specialties, I'd like to discuss maybe allowing for two to be active at once in a given fight.
Possibly adding a single use item that would allow both specialties to be applied?

Also, when it comes to stacking specialties, there are some that if unused would be a disadvantage from something that would be the base for a character without a specialty.
The biggest thing that comes to mind is the ranger specialty. If a character was to not use their oversized their companion and activate a different specialty for that fight instead, they'd be -1 companion entirely. It just feels a bit imbalanced, in my opinion
Víðarr has two Karelian bear dogs and a white morph tawny owl.  Assume they're within calling distance unless otherwise stated.  
Víðarr speaks with a dense Swedish accent.

In light of my latest stint with internet issues;

An emergency gemstore or donation item that gives alphas a longer Absence period in the event that live events are happening and they cannot get online or on Ardent to do posts and alpha duties. Maybe a month period, with proof of need, and cannot be used more than one a quarter, maybe.
Ardyn's family (Red, Aurielle, Siblings, Valhalla) are allowed to crash threads, regardless of private tags.

Ardyn at first glance is as black as can be imagined with a raven sheen.

Closer inspection proves that he shimmers in fire tones in every hair on his hide right down to his lashes.

More obviously, he glows like a bed of coals and flames with every movement and brush of fur. His tail is usually wagging, so blazes like a torch.

His adult teeth are in and his saber canines have grown to their full length (see profile). His mane and tail hair have grown to full length, as well as being lightweight and easily buffeted by breezes.

A look at his front paws will give the impression of hands, with his dew claw dropped low and lengthened into a functioning thumb, and his toes elongated into fingers. He has retractable, solid black cat-like claws on every paw.

Ardyn has developed a glowing mast of intricate markings in fire and ice colors over his face, symmetrical over the last seasons of Year 17 (see profile for details). During hunts or raids/sieges, he will smudge them out with black soot to cover the glow, otherwise, they are bright enough to note at first direct glance at his face. Not all his artwork currently portrays the mask markings.

He is also often bedecked in beads, small bells, feathers in blues, ribbons and braids thanks to the Ooze Event of Halloween 2021, and the Coathanger item that he got. The accessories generally are seen most in his mane and tail hair. He removes the brighter items and bells for hunts or battle.

i think it would be helpful if hovering over the specialty images under the av would yield their description!
Grimshaw has a large, fluffy, and curled tail that may not always be shown in his art.
He also has a silver horseshoe septum ring and a black studded collar that he is always wearing, but may not be shown in the art, either.

A formatted OOC profile at least to a point of a big text area where we can put whatever we want, ie a bio, triggers, art shop link, things we will/won't do, etc!
