Remember: puppies do not become playable until they are two months of age; until then, they are yNPCs.
Creatures and Companions
Creatures are any character not of the genus Canis. Non-Canine Companion NPcs are your character's non-canine characters (e.g., a horse or pet raven).
Guests and members who have not yet been accepted into the game, this information is not yet accessible to you. You'll be able to see it as soon as you're accepted to the game. However, we strongly suggest you wait a while before thinking about pack formation -- we recommend at least a year of membership before trying to form a pack.
- Players may switch the designation of characters as primary or auxiliary as desired by changing the "master" account of their linked accounts.
- Players must drop characters via the Drop List; they are also encouraged to PM their pack leader as an additional courtesy.
- After dropping an auxiliary character, players must wait two weeks before rejoining with another auxiliary character. Players dropping their only character may rejoin as a new character immediately.
- Players must Request puppies intended to survive past two months of age.
- Requests should be made prior to referencing pregnancy in roleplay.
- Permission may be requested up to four weeks before an intended birthdate, which means that half the pregnancy, if played, must be backdated.
- If a request is rejected, players may re-request in two weeks.
- Pending approval, each player is allotted three puppy points per calendar year. (More Information)
- Only the parent(s) that fit(s) the following requirements may contribute puppy points. The contributing parent(s) must:
- Characters must be 1.5 years / 18 months at the time of request.
- A litter has a maximum of six surviving puppies. Multi-father litters are allowed; however, the maximum number of surviving puppies in a multi-father litter is still six.
- A mother may have a maximum of one live litter every 20 weeks.
- For same-sex couples seeking to use a surrogate, it is the couple that may contribute puppy allotments to the litter, not the surrogate; however, the surrogate still must meet age requirements.
