News & Updates

Feel that chill in the air? It's time to get spooky!

Advertising Event

You guys did an awesome job with the Advertising Event! We've had a lot of new (and old) faces showing up this month, and hope to see more in the future. Our overall winner was Gen, with a whopping 109 points! Everyone did an awesome job -- make sure to post in maintenance to claim your prizes!

Procedure Clarification

It's come to our attention that players may have been confused about mateship between characters. Characters can only "officially" be mates (ie; have mateship icons) if they are members of the same pack. We've made a note of this in our Maintenance thread as well -- remember, though, some packs have special procedures when it comes to this! Make sure to check with your leaders if permission needs granted for mateship status.

Staff Updates

As most of you already know, Sie officially stepped down from the administration mid September. We would like to thank her for all the hard work, sweat and dedication she has put into making 'Souls what it is today, and we will miss her greatly. We wish you all the best, Sie, and hope that you will return to us soon! <3

Outpost Traders

Damilil the Horse Trader is back at the Outpost, as is Rie Van Den Eliene. The traders One-Eyed Zu and Black Babirye are preparing to leave for the winter, so now would be a good time to visit if you haven't yet!

Spotlights for October 2015

Spotlight Soul
Kennedy Fisher (Kai) is our Spotlight Soul for October! Kennedy has been very active in the Inferni-Cour des Miracles plot, signing up for several threads and posting consistently. He's been earning co-ranks left and right, as well as all three optional Rex titles in Inferni, and recruiting new members and ensuring that they're settling in. Kennedy's been very consistently active and is an exemplary example of pack participation! Hooray for Kennedy!

Community Soul
Our October Community Soul is Dark (Shaamah)! Dark's been an awesome positive influence in the OOC areas of 'Souls, from lending members advice in the art forums, participating in and starting interesting and engaging discussion, and participating in cool IC plots, to just being an all-around awesome member of our community! Thanks for being great, Dark! :)

Dalimil the Horse Trader

The Outpost trader Dalimil has come to 'Souls this month. She has horses for offer:

  • Gelding, black. Playful and affectionate.
  • Mare, chestnut. Very smart.
  • Mare, bay. Spirited and young, cart trained (more valuable).
  • Mare, black. Cautious.
  • Stallion available for STUD only: Milos, gray. Milos is a very large example of a Svantevit horse, one of the largest owned by the pack. His impressive size makes him an ideal stud for some, though small mares undergo a risky endeavor. He is a gray, rare amongst the Svantevit horses and rarer still amongst stallions chosen to stud.

Request Rules

  • Requests are NOT A GUARANTEE of approval. The 'SA approves or denies these requests based on the application received and in the order of applications received. Don't assume your horse is owned until you receive a PM confirming the claim.
  • Packs may request horses for communal stores. Pack claims, however, are considered after player claims. We usually give 1-2 weeks for claims to be made, after which time we consider any claims made by packs.
  • Your character may claim a horse if they already have a horse companion. Like pack claims, however, these claims are considered after those who already have a horse.
  • Keep in mind the typical description of a Svantevit horse.
  • The horses are offered as is -- changing genders, descriptions, personalities, etc. is not permitted.
