Um, no... I'm not going to tell you that anything is "wrong", but I just felt that I should point out that there's no such thing as a "Feral Lynx". XD

I guess I thought any animal could be feral...
Sorry, why can't lynxes be feral again? I probably missed something somewhere. ^^'

I should apologize for being a bit condescending about it, but it's just so much fun. XD

Yeah, if you look at BsM, we've avoided calling characters like Rikki, Pifer, and Samuel "feral", because that would indicate that they're not SUPPOSED to be wild. Dogs and Cats can be "feral", but lynxs and raccoons aren't.

Hey, it's all minor semantics anyway, I didn't know it either until I looked it up thinking "is this REALLY the right word?"

Well, at least I've been using it right for my characters, with Grif being feral and Felix not and such. Felix never considered himself feral. Hah, maybe he's smarter than me. I'd be so mad. >.>

Post subject:  Re: PF: Haven OOC

Name: Dax (Or Skunk)
Species: Wolf (forest)
Age: 3 years old (human years)
Neighborhood: Haven

-Appearance-
Black wolf who possess various streaks of white over his body (underbelly, etc) and one large one down his tail, earning him his nickname (Skunk). He has a average wolf build and also one large scar down his face, reasons unknown.

-Personality-
Quite shy, suprising for a wolf who are meant to be social with their packs but is working on that as he's been lonely for some time. He shares different attitudes at time, one where he is fearful to other animals but later he wants to be friends, basically...trust issues. He's that even that confident, he's what you would call a sheep in wolf's clothing, terrified of almost anything strange to him after spending all his previous years tucked closely with his parents, afraid of danger.

Other Notes:
He's trying to be as friendly as possible at times, even attempting the difficult choice of being a vegetarian which is proving hard for him.

I think that's in pet years. Still, needs clarified.

Good question. I think the Housepets! aging rate is still seven years, for simplicity's sake.

Well, both characters seem just fine, after Rook makes a quick edit with the whole age thing... And I agree with Housefox, probably it should be the whole 7:1 ratio.

Otherwise, feel free to post.

Post subject:  Re: PF: Haven OOC

If I'm not mistaken, (since it wasn't actually defined here) I believe a feral is a domesticated animal that's become wild. So, you could have a feral cat, dog, or tame silver fox, but not a feral wolf or lynx (since they're not domestic).

Oh, and official Housepets lore says that the pets live twice as long as normal as their four-legged counterparts (meaning that's what Rick has said)- For a small squirrel, 7:1 does seem about right.

Anyway, I'll have a slight lag in joining, mainly because I need to re-read my character's backstory, voice and add some tweaks as I see fit (and also TF2 released a major update with co-op so that's been distracting like none-other, if I'm going to be honest :P).

Sure. Go ahead and make yourself at home. ^^

But speaking of which (and this is directed at everyone), do we want to have a max player limit? I know RV's is fifteen people, but I think --think-- that it varies depending on the RP.

Post subject:  Re: PF: Haven OOC

Name: North Dakota

Character Type: Main

Species: German Shepherd

Age: 18 Pet Years

Neighborhood: Haven

Appearance: His fur is overall tan, with the exception of his muzzle and his ears which are a slightly darker brown. His eyes are bright blue and he's in fit condition. He wears a black collar with a compass attached to it (as a tag)

Personality: You wouldn't call North to be the nicest animal you meet (at first). The dog isn't mean but he lacks tact and deep emotion to be considered 'nice' His frosty personality originating from what he calls "life lessons from the past". He can successfully carry out a conversation one on one but if he's put on a stand he has a tendency to panic. North has a propensity to be nosey. His strengths lie in his ability to complete tasks and work. North's mind is wired to shoot for success and accept nothing else, holding himself to a high standard. He has a great sense of what he believes is "the morally right thing to do" and doesn't have a problem with calling someone out. His dream is to someday to become a police dog (but for some reason he sees it as unrealistic). His main drawbacks are his gullibility, and his indecisiveness on personal choices.

Background: North could be considered your usual Christmas present Catastrophe case. One day a young girl told her parents she wanted a dog. So for Christmas, that's exactly what her parents got her. And that dog happened to be North. It was probably one of the happiest days of his life (all of his days previous to this was at a local pound). Their logic was that if they bought an older dog, they'd need to take care of it less (as opposed to a puppy). And it worked out well. For a couple months. After which it became apparent to the parents that their daughters interests started veering away from their new dog, and the cost and time of owning a dog was "too much" for them. So they made the ultimatum to "return" him to his old home. When he overheard this he made the spontaneous decision to leave... and never come back. Abandoning his name and making his own (he's a fan of the Badlands).

S.P.E.C.I.A.L.

S - 9 "I blame genetics..."
P - 5 - "I wasn't startled it was just a... defensive reaction...yup."
E - 7 - "Not tired yet."

I - 5 - "I blame lack of books."
A - 7 - "Sharp turns? No problem...mostly"

Post subject:  Re: PF: Haven OOC

Well, Felix doesn't have much to fight over, Lynx's have HUGE ranges, one wolf isn't an issue, plus he does pretty good foraging, fishing, and should have at least a decent stock pile of emergency food. If worst comes to worst he can steal from humans or get Cody to slip him some food from the zoo...

He does eat rabbits which could bring a turn for darkness later if perhaps our rabbit friends catch him or another predator in the act, but, that would likely have to be planned.... It could also be used for comedy tho', if a rabbit disappeared and he showed up with a new fur-hate... turns out said hat is fake fur and the missing rabbit was exploring....

Meh, I like it as it is...

Post subject:  Re: PF: Haven OOC

Sorry, sorry.
First time on the job, here. ^^'
Also, first day of college today, woo.
But yeah. Just. Guys, it would be cool (and this is for everyone, could apply in the future) if you would wait to post so that everyone could reply. Not exactly a posting order, because I know sometimes people post a little too slowly. Just. Give each other a chance to catch up, instead of two people in a group of four or five posting rapidly back and forth. That way, it's more fair... It's just using a bit of courtesy.
Also, if anyone ever feels left behind or like they can't keep up, you should PM me and let me know so I can talk to the other players and work something out. Either that or you can go directly to each other. By no means do you have to come through me. Just. Don't sit and be unhappy or frustrated. Please, talk to someone about it. Voice your grievances, otherwise they won't be fixed!

That's a rule for pretty much every roleplay. Jus' sayin'.

Currently you're not holding anyone up. Quartz can post a charrie whenever.
And I thought you were going to join as a red fox or something... see, you've got half the character done! The physical description. Now you just need to fill his/her head. ^^
But if you truly feel you don't have enough time, then don't worry about it!

Though of course all the things he assumed could be incorrect. He doesn't have very unusually high perception, or intelligence (kinda) for that matter. So he could be wrong. But it would be really cool if he was right. ^^

I like the interplay between Swiftpaw and her cult leader here: he's trying to make a good impression for the newcomer, and she's not sure how to play along...
...Either that or Keeshah's being weird and you guys should probably be working it out behind the scenes...


Anyway, despite the longwinded posts, I have to commend you: Grif does seem like a few of the more intelligent cult-leaders I've met...
