Pack Concept: Entella

POSTED: Sat May 23, 2020 3:08 pm

Hi guys!

I've been bandying about an idea for a pack, and I thought it might be time to see who—besides myself, of course—might find themselves interested in something like this. Please feel free to let me know if you're interested, have questions, critiques, etc.

Please keep in mind that this won't go beyond the planning/discussion stage until early 2021 (February, March, April, etc.).

  • Potential Pack Name: Entella
  • Colors: Flax Smoke (#75825b) and Juniper (#6a8e89)
  • Google Doc: Link
  • Website: Link
  • Basic Idea for Pack: A close-knit group that rejects religion and mysticism while promoting ideals such as the growth of individual members, hard work, and mastery. Entella doesn't discriminate based on species or luperci status—though those interested in joining who are non-luperci may encounter difficulty with regards to some of the cultural aspects—but those who fail to show proper respect in their joining threads will be chased away from the borders, or worse.
    • What sets it apart from the current packs?: Openly practicing religion and/or 'magic' is strictly prohibited in Entella. While there are ways around this ICly, characters caught praying or performing witchcraft may very well find themselves disciplined in some way.
    • Rank ideas: Entella is an ergatocracy, wherein the labor heads make many of the day-to-day decisions within their tiers based on merit, but final decisions come down to those possessing leadership ranks. Latin/Roman naming conventions will be used for individual ranks i.e Imperator, Princeps, Magister, etc.
    • Pack customs and society: Though they lack traditional ‘rituals’ due to strong anti-theist sentiments, they do celebrate midwinter and midsummer as natural phenomena. The exact day of this is not always (see: rarely) known but features a week of festivities and gaiety. Achievements and milestones (birth, marriage, death, et al.) are common causes for celebration (or, in the case of death, mourning).
  • Potential Territory Claim: Cape Acadia (Timber Cove, The Bluffs)
  • Potential Leader(s):

This seems like a really cool idea; with labour and skills being seen as something so integral. I’d be up for it :)

My gosh, if my girl Kaeli wasn't so involved in Salsa already (and old) her radical atheistic arse would have really fit in there.
Perhaps her kin may find a home there someday 7u7

(„ᵕᴗᵕ„) I wish I could use a real emoji, but everyone's support just... warms my little heart.

Is there anything you guys don't like? Something you would change if you could? I don't bite, I promise!
