Spotlights for April 2020

Spotlight Soul

The Spotlight Soul for April is Daniel (Vida)! Son of Mistfell Vale's Ursarchon, he fled on stolen horse to the coyote-run gang to seek his own life and strengthen his reputation, with nary a lick of sense behind the motion. His impulsive nature, his bravado, his very panache has allowed him to fit a snug little niche among Del Cenere; just as rough, crude, and intrepid as the rest of them. He recently became one of the Gang's Lawmen, and his road to achieving his status as a Bounty Hunter sure looks like an interesting one.

Community Soul

The Community Soul for April is Salena! With characters in every pack, Salena is a constant and pleasant presence in community chats. Regularly open to plots, Salena has been an active player whose willingness to help out her fellow roleplayers has not gone unnoticed. We've really enjoyed seeing all of Salena's characters throughout the years and are keeping our eyes open for what's coming next!

Featured Pack Adoptable

This month's featured character is Kaimkillen of Salsola, a mysterious young man from the far west. Nobody knows much about Kaimkillen's past - Only that his present has been the result of a series of extremely unfortunate circumstances. His voyage to Nova Scotia was pitfalled with hardship, from poverty and hunger to illness. Destitute, and with a deadly winter nipping at his heels, Kaim made the poor mistake of falling in with the Underhill Camp gang - who were, themselves, about to become victims of fate.

Persecuted by Salsola for their nearness to the border and unrelated, less scrupulous crimes, the Underhill camp were confronted by a raiding party of some of the Thistle Kingdom's finest. Whilst the other members of the crew were swift to fight, Kaim - wise for all his youth - saw the inevitability of their capture, and submitted. The only detained survivor of what turned out to be a bloodbath, the coyote was dragged back to the kingdom and sentenced to serve as a Mendicant until the totality of his debt (being, if temporarily, an aggressor to the crown) is paid.

Temperatures are rising, the sun is out more, and all sorts of things are popping up in 'Souls!

Wiki Guidelines Updates and Clarifications

A small style guide has been put together further clarifying the Wiki's visual guidelines (also updated) to hopefully lessen confusion! We understand players want to make things look cool and creative, but we'd like to re-emphasize that the Wiki isn't really the place for it.

We've seen a surge in fancy markup on the Wiki to make them more like websites, but while some rule violations are more subtle than others, and while many of them do look very nice!, we need to be able to enforce rules evenly across the board so's not to confuse anyone. Regcry Please do look over the guide and guidelines and make any appropriate changes at your convenience. We'll begin sending PMs regarding remaining violations around the middle of the month. Thank you for understanding!

We highly recommend free website hosts like Google sites, Wix, or Weebly, for those who want to go all out on design!
