[KR] Up In Flames

POSTED: Wed Oct 03, 2018 12:25 pm

Krokar Disbandment

As the summer winds to a close, so, too, does Krokar's time on 'Souls.

This was not a decision made lightly. Krokar has radiated acceptance, camaraderie, diligence, and merriment for four wonderful, enjoyable years, and we absolutely love what the pack has stood for. But real-life circumstances and a waning interest have put a strain on leadership and, though we have always hoped that the pack would carry on for many more years, we feel that the time is right to lay down our fishing rods, hang up our nets, and put the caribou out to pasture, as they say.

But, before we do, we have one fatal final plot for everyone to enjoy. >;)


Table of Contents

Disbandment Plot

Word from Old Ironsides has arrived that the trading post is in need of supplies, animals, and aid, prompting Lucille to lead a large group of members, along with goods and livestock, from New Brunswick to Portland. Krokar has enjoyed seasons of harmony and prosperity, instilling within its members a sense of tranquility, confidence, and security. It feels as though nothing could disrupt the peace that has embraced them.

Ah, but nothing lasts forever. For, from the shadows of harmony lurks discord, and of peace, chaos.

A new group of loners has surfaced within the neutral territories and their intentions are far from wholesome. After an attempt to evangelize the pack is wildly unsuccessful, the desire to enact retribution leads to a nefarious scheme. The large band of travelers departing from Krokar -- animals and wagons filled with goods in tow -- had not gone unobserved by these loners and, with such an expansive territory, it is reasonable for them to conclude that the security of its borders would be lacking. Taking advantage of a perceived weakness, the Eyes of Omni steal past poorly protected borders under the cover of darkness and set Fiskebyn alight.

The flames spread rapidly, consuming the sleepy little village and spreading to nearby Aster’s Fields. In an effort to spare their livestock from a horrific death, the pack releases the animals from their fields, paddocks, and coops, where they flee the flames and scatter into surrounding territories. Chaos and confusion is pervasive and, between the flames and the terror and the incessant chanting all around, Krokarans, too, scatter and flee.

As dawn breaks and the flames die, Krokarans slowly trickle back in to find that their homes, their goods, and their supplies are nothing more than smoldering embers. Most return, disoriented and exhausted, but there are a distinct few who remain missing, Milos among them.

Without their leaders, their cottages, or their livelihood, the remaining Krokarans leave the territory they called home for four long summers -- some to look for their missing, others to follow Lucille's band of travelers to Old Ironsides to deliver the news -- and effectively disband the pack.


Timeline
  • October 1st: Word reaches Krokar from the Old Ironsides Depot that they are in need of goods, animals, and help.
  • October 8th: After gathering a large group of volunteers to join her on the journey to the trading post, Lucille embarks from New Brunswick to Portland with a number of animals and carts filled with goods.
  • October 10th: A young woman arrives at Krokar's borders and attempts to evangelize its people to her beliefs. After being drawn by her voice, a Krokaran meets her at the borders and demands that she leave, unaware just how disastrous this single act will be.
  • October 25th: Two Omniscients carefully scout Krokar's borders and identify its weaknesses, encouraging them to slip quietly into the territory under the cover of darkness. They start a fire in Fiskebyn before absconding to the borders. The flames spread quickly, engulfing their sleepy little village before dispersing to nearby Aster's Fields. While Krokarans react – some trying to fight the flames while other attempt to save the animals – a chorus of constant chanting can be heard from the borders. Despite their best efforts, the flames devour the heart and soul of Krokar and, in the end, at least one brave individual is lost to them forever.
    • Private thread: Rosa & Miriette
    • Group thread 1: fight the flames in Fiskebyn
      • Eliza Cormier (S), Percival Parhelion, Aenan Pyr, Bramble Parhelion, Eros Damaichu, Inara Ailurus
    • Group thread 2: release the animals in Aster's Fields
      • Ascher Stormbringer, Oscar Morelli (S), Ibycus, Derek Winter, Norah Cormier, Walker Dupree
    • [M] Private thread: Degaré & Milos
  • October 26th-October 30th: After the flames burn out and the stillness returns, scattered members begin to filter back to Fiskebyn to find it destroyed. They wait for others to return, but a few do not. Among those missing is Milos.
    • Members are encouraged to plot threads with one another during this time. Pick through the debris, take care of your dead, console one another, etc.
  • October 31st: Krokar officially disbands. Remaining members either continue the search for their missing as loners, band together to form loner groups, join other packs, or head to Old Ironsides to inform those residing there of the news.
Group Thread Participation Form

This form should be used for the October 25th group threads. Since there will be two, we ask that you choose one and let us know. There will be no post order for either of these group threads. Our hope is that this will evoke an essence of chaos as your characters react to the flames. Please respond to this thread with your participation form by October 10th.

Claims and Mementos

The disbandment of a pack is always bittersweet, so we will be offering a couple of perks for members to remember Krokar by. Please respond to this thread with your animal and/or icon claims.


Communal Animal Claims

The fall of Krokar has left its livestock have scattered. Current pack members will be able to claim communal animals first. Any remaining livestock will be open to claims from other packs, starting with Mistfell Vale and Cour des Miracles, both of which Krokar has been actively involved with in talks of trade. Following their claims, Casa di Cavalieri and Salsola will be able to make theirs. All remaining livestock will then be opened up for loners to claim.

Important note: because these animals will be scattered due to the fire, you’ll have to have your character track down the animal(s) you have claimed!

>> CLICK HERE FOR AVAILABLE ANIMALS <<


Disbandment Icons

If you'd like to have a little piece of Krokar to remember your time in the pack by, we'll be offering the following permanent icons for current and former characters of the pack. To claim an icon, you may either cash in all of your current game points or keep your game points and buy your icon from the pack game.

You may choose your own hover text, but please keep it relevant to your time in the pack. :)


A Word of Thanks

Thank you all -- from those of you who helped found Krokar to those who provided the plots and ideas that allowed it to flourish to those who have stuck with us to the bitter end. Krokar would not have been the welcoming, warm, and wonderful place that it has been for four long years without your dedication, support, and inspiration. We appreciate each and every one of you who have called Krokar home. No matter how brief or extended your stay with us was, you made Krokar what it was. Thank you! ❤

Krokar Disbandment - Animal Claims

Guidelines

Current members of Krokar are allowed to make the first claims on a per-character basis. However, characters must be actively played. Claims are first-come, first-served. Please limit horse claims to one per character and consider realism when claiming other animals. The deadline for KR claims is October 10th.

After that date, we will then announce when leadership from Mistfell Vale and Cour des Miracles may begin claiming animals. The deadline for MV and CdM claims is October 17th.

Again, after that date, we will then announce when leadership from Casa di Cavalieri and Salsola may begin their claims. The deadline for CdC and SL claims is October 24th.

Afterwards, any remaining animals will be opened up for loners to claim until October 31st.

Lists will be updated with a strikethrough and/or subtracted totals as animals are claimed.

Hawks
  • Gunda (female | 2010 | red-tailed hawk)

Krokar was always such a cozy and friendly place, OOC and IC -- I had hoped to return soon, but hopefully this can be the drive for people to start something new. <3 I know I'm ready to run with it whenever Willow returns! You guys were fantastic leaders, and I know this decision wasn't made lightly. I've mentioned it before, but I just want to say that a pack's disbandment or longevity should never overshadow everything amazing you have accomplished with Krokar!

I think I should have some points remaining with Willow -- I'd love to cash all those in for the caribou icon on Willow Cormier!

Eliza icon (cashing in game points): caribou, hover "as one we are everything we need"

So I had planned to pick Cora up but was waiting to see what the final plot was.. would it be ok if Eliza claimed Granite to give to Cora at a later date (as I'll likely be doing switcheroo with Liz/Cora at some point)?

I sure had a lot of fun playing Oscar in Krokar for the past year and a half! It's a bittersweet moment because I'm sad to see Krokar go, however I look forward to seeing what others do in the aftermath. It'll be interesting to play Oscar without his birthpack, that's for sure!

Also would like to put down all my points for the fish hook for Miss Ailurus' account. I'd like the hover words to be "If only it could have stuck"

Edit : didn't see Granite was asked for. How about Maryls for Animal Claim, please
