Festival Roleplaying / [WWP1] Burns-with-Rage and Grim Grinning Ghosts
« on: December 01, 2019, 08:14:40 PM »
{alt}
Burns-with-Rage was always prepared. In fact you could almost say he was over-prepared.

The little grove he lived in he had begun compulsively clearing of dry leaves the moment the grey clouds appeared on the horizon. Dead branches, he placed far by the wayside. While it probably wasn't going to be a thunderstorm, there was still the chance. And that chance was enough to make him nervous.

The cold didn't bother him at all- he was a Totoma, after all. Even with some of his coat never growing back in, he still had plenty of fur to keep him insulated. But... This dry weather in the winter made it even easier for the leaf litter on the ground to catch fire, and well... That would be it, wouldn't it?

Of course, his grove was well and already scorched. Even after this long, the trees hadn't totally recovered. That made it a bit less likely to catch on fire again, but... Still, he ought to be careful. He may have survived last time, but there was no guarantee this time he would be so lucky.

So, wandering through the grove, it was strikingly barren. Not only were the trees charred black, without any leaves or downed branches, it looked almost... ghostly. Like nothing had lived there in years.

Festival Booths / Seekers of Secrets: One-Night Ultimate Werewolf
« on: November 28, 2019, 06:12:50 PM »

The long winter nights seem to drag on and on, making it the perfect time to sit around the fire and have a little fun while waiting for the sun to return.

Just because it's a bit chilly outside doesn't mean the Seekers are taking time off of their love of telling stories and chasing ghosts. Instead, in the lighthearted spirit of the season, they've gathered kin to play a quicker, less-stressful variant of the Werewolf game they played during the autumn- One-Night Ultimate Werewolf. While the regular variety of Werewolf is all about keeping your roles a secret and working with numbers over a long period of time, One-Night Werewolf is all about lying and bluffing about your role, and potentially claiming to be something you're not. While it is much more chaotic than classic Werewolf, it is a variant where no kin have to die until the very end, making it easier to just hop into and not worry about being killed early on.

Roleplaying / [B] Future at present. (Merry Berry x Peep) -fin-
« on: October 17, 2019, 08:52:23 PM »

Well, of course she had to be a little nervous. Could she even be considered sentient if she wasn't? It was one of the most vulnerable times in anyone's life.

That was normal for a first time mother, she'd been told. To be both excited and a bit scared at the same time. Of course, she wasn't exactly sure if she was ready to be a mother, mentally. Physically, she had found enough stuff of various types to fill up the rocky outcropping she had chosen as her temporary place of rest. She'd done so almost immediately upon both realizing and accepting her current state. Dried berries and fish lined one wall, and interesting items like pretty rocks and intricately carved bark pieces rested against the other, just things to keep her busy and content without needing to go out.

It was comfortable. It had everything she could want.

But at the same time...

It was a bit boring, wasn't it?

She wasn't quite sure why she had decided to wander out. She wasn't quite sure what she was looking for, either. Maybe she could go back and see that fortuneteller once more, and get a read on what was soon to happen? ...No, she'd just seen her, it was doubtful her fortune would change much.

Regardless, she was as filled with wanderlust as always, begging the world to throw something or anything at her to take her mind off things. Or maybe put her mind on things? She could never tell. She left it up to fate.

Tribes / Seekers of Secrets.
« on: September 12, 2019, 04:28:33 PM »

While not so receptive to broader Acha society, Merry Berry finds herself quite at home within the ranks of her own little Tribe, the Seekers of Secrets. The Seekers are a strange, loosely-knit bunch who share a general interest in hunting for the paranormal, forgotten, or otherwise hidden secrets of the Swamp around them, and sometimes even the world beyond it. Some are more serious about this passion than others, but all are welcome so long as they have a legitimate interest in their adventures.

Even though Merry is the Founder of the tribe, she doesn't hold an especially high position within it that garners her any undue respect. However, she does try her best to accompany most of the Tribe's expeditions herself, and often finds herself bringing home the widest collection of interesting objects (and stories) from her exploration- things that are something of a badge of honor within The Seekers. Practical value of the items gathered in a ghost hunt or investigation means very little to most Seekers, as they prefer to think of the value of their work in the stories it comes with.

Members of the tribe are not officially ranked, and all are treated equally under the rules, such that there even are rules. However, those with more gumption and propensity to join in on interesting and dangerous expeditions and hunts are generally seen as more dedicated and respectable on an unofficial level, and often find themselves taking home the more interesting fruits of the Tribe's labor.

Those who do not participate in the grand expeditions the Tribe prides itself in are still welcome to join in the fun however, especially in telling stories of their own. Even moreso than all kin naturally do, Merry and the other Seekers enjoy telling and hearing tales of supernatural occurrences, real or embellished. On nights of the full moon, despite wind or rain or snow, they often hold open meetings where anyone at all interested can share and listen to tales of other kin's stories of being chased by ghosts, stumbling upon ancient burial grounds, or other strange and interesting occurrences. Often these nights are accompanied by free food gathered by the tribe, so it's fairly common for kin to arrive and make something up on the spot just for an easy meal- but Merry doesn't seem to mind.

Archives / 🌸 Pica Naming Contest.
« on: September 07, 2019, 12:11:31 PM »
From the bones and flesh of the dead turned back into the soil, so springs up new life.



From Lirilei and I's recent mixer breeding, we've been blessed with these three does!

And so, we're holding a naming contest for this doe:


Her parents are Bone Chewer and Return to the Soil, and her sisters are named Hoof Rot and Bone Meal. We're looking for a name that's on theme!

We'd also like to know what this kin's favorite food is. This will be used only if we need a tiebreaker! We're not looking for more than a sentence of explanation.

This competition will be very quick, just 24 hours!

A form is below for your convenience- Good luck!

Below the Surface: Summer Event / [SWP4] (Merry Berry)
« on: August 19, 2019, 04:54:58 AM »
Quote
Kin everywhere are frolicking in the water or lounging by the shore to catch a tan or nap.  It's low tide and the mangrove roots are sticking out above the surface. Curious kin look closer to find out the skeletal remains of a foreign creature. Some are older than others, but some are very recent. What could they be?

{alt}
A burial ground.

That was what her heart told her, but her mind told her a hundred different things all at once. Of course it was no burial ground. These weren't bones from any kin she had seen before- she could tell that, even from perhaps a hundred paces. So she had doubts they were bones from anything intelligent enough to bury their dead. Still, wouldn't it be nice to pretend?

While the others from her tribe shied back, sensing some unknown danger, she stepped forward towards the gleaming, bleached-white bones on the horizon with reckless abandon.

She could quickly see why they had done so, however- the ground near that tree was particularly infirm. Though she had adapted to the Swamp's wet climate and the mud that clung to her hooves over her past few years, this was uncommonly bad. As she pressed forward, she felt like each footfall was getting more and more tenuous, soon having to yank her whole hoof, then perhaps a quarter of her leg, then a third- heaving to tug them free of the mud pit below, something that took much more of her energy than she had imagined.

It felt like soon, she'd have to pull her legs clean off to free herself.

Her common sense kicked in about there, and her legs ground to a total halt.

Still, from where she was, she was perhaps three or four body-lengths from where the bones were, and so she flicked her tail once and then twice in annoyance. There was no way she- or anyone else for that matter- would be getting close enough to those bones to inspect them thoroughly to concretely identify them. Not unless that kin wanted their own bones to join the pile.

Instead, she chose to piece together what she did see.

The great tusks of a boar, old and pockmarked with battle scars. The powerful tail of a crocodile, its scales still clinging to the bones. The hooked talons of a raptor- perhaps a hawk or eagle. And many bones of smaller animals, too tiny for her to see perfectly from this distance- but she could make out the skulls of rabbits and the tiny leg bones of rodents.

A burial ground? Perhaps not. But still a place where animals of all kinds went to die.

But where was the fun in a simple mud-hole?

Wading back towards her fellows, her mind was moving faster than her hooves as she spun her story. Her eyes followed everyone else's gaze as it returned to her, expectant.

"Fear not!" Voice a sing-song chime, she shook the clinging mud from her legs as she found her hooves back on more solid ground. "The Swamp has, in her grace, protected us from a great beast."

And from there wound her story of how the Swamp had long ago trapped the creature with a boar's head, the tail of a crocodile, and wicked talons away- luring it in with smaller prey, ensnaring it in her mud so it could no longer do harm to her children.

It wasn't the first of her tall tales.

It wouldn't be the last, either.

Marketplace / simple banners & graphics. [tentatively open]
« on: August 15, 2019, 11:36:20 PM »
greetings. i'm mima and i sometimes open gimp to make very simple banners.

here are some examples of those. under a spoiler 'cause big!

(click to show/hide)

i can also make edited gifs sometimes but those will cost... a Bit. because i go in and edit every frame manually and that takes way more effort, ugh. but here are a couple examples of that. under a spoiler because of of course, epilepsy warning and all that!

(click to show/hide)

prices are subject to change, of course! right now buttons and banners are probably like 5-20 pebbles based on complexity, and i'd have to say gifs are more like... 75-100. when you post the following form, i will reply to you with a price, and we can talk it out from there.

Code: [Select]
[b]Username:[/b] yours, not mine
[b]What you'd like:[/b] button, simple text banner, gif? what do you want on it?
[b]Resources:[/b] please try your best to find royalty free/free for personal use stuff, or official art! i don't want to get the site taken down for stolen fanart. if you also have a specific font in mind, i can work with that!
[b]Bulk Order?[/b] if you need to order like 6 identical banners for a thread, i will give you a discount, obviously. just detail what all you need here. for example, "i need banners for a tribe, can you do like, information, members, events, open roleplays and a reserved button?" would be a good request.

slots:
1. open
2. open
