Abaven Pack

"Roll out the drums of war and let's speak of things worth fighting for."

Abaven was formed by Bass Destruction in Winter of Year 3.

Abaven is a lawful good pack, focused on helping others strive. With many of the traditional ranks, there’s a place for every good to neutral aligned wolf. With three large territories, Abaven has plenty of room for its wolves to grow. It’s a tranquil place, where family groups flourish and wolves hone their skills. Abaven is neutral in its standings, with trade alliances with most of the packs in the land. However, it’s also likely to stand up for wrongs committed and looks to train efficient warriors for this purpose. As one alpha once said, "[we] stand up for justice, promote self sufficiency, and keep those [we] care about safe," and that's the motto most Abaven wolves live by.

Pack Color: #3e91c7
Claimed Territories: Serpent Plains, Fontamo Bay & Ibis Islands

Former Leaders: Bass Destruction, Váli Lasair, Sparrow Destruction, Shaye Destruction

Pack Rules, Customs & History


Rules:

General Rules:
⚔ If trespassers are found within the pack boundaries without permission, any wolf within the pack may attack on sight without reason. However, if a wolf below tier two commits a maim on an intruder without sufficient reason, they will be subject to punishment (may include stripping of rank, menial labor, etc. depending on the crime).
⚔ No members of Abaven are allowed to attack other packs or to start a war, this will lead to the exile of the accused.
⚔ All wolves are expected to show up for training and meetings. Failure to do so will result in demotion.
⚔ Fighting within the pack, besides training, is unacceptable. Any wolf is welcome to come forward with an issue that they find unsolvable and can seek assistance from any high ranking wolf.
⚔ A pup may choose their area of study at six months old.
⚔ Wolves that have been missing in action (not posted in any in-character board for 3+ months) will be moved to "missing." If you choose to return, let an alpha know so that your rank can be discussed or restored.

Rank Rules:
⚔ Wolves need to prove themselves to gain a higher rank and need to be at least a year old to prove their worth.
⚔ Any wolf is welcome to approach a tier one about how to rank up and ways to achieve a higher rank.
⚔ The tier one may decide to test the wolf in order to secure a higher rank. Tests fall into categories of Test of Strength, Test of Healing, Test of Hunt, Test of Navigation, Test of Knowledge. They may rank in terms of Minor and Major. Ex. "Major Test of Strength: Wolfie"
⚔ All head positions must hold a mass training at least once a season. Failure to do so will result in a demotion. If you are unable to hold a training, please speak with the OOC player of a tier one ranked character about why.
⚔ All mentors are expected to train their apprentices as well as show up to all main training themselves. It is a mentors job to see to it that their apprentice is doing well and receiving all the training they need.
⚔ Mentors and alphas may administer tests to prove the apprentice's skill.
⚔ Tests may have a due date assigned to them like meetings. Please negotiate with one another to have timely and concise tests.

Pack Relations


Pack Relations:
Allies, neutral, unfriendly, enemies. Details of particular relationships, if any, will be listed below the corresponding pack.

Ashen - Neutral

Fireside - Unknown


Lirim - Neutral

Ashen Aramada - Tense (Improving)
Ashen Armada captured Motif from the slave market and their warlord made a deal to take the late alpha's other daughter, Poem, in her place. Uneasiness prevails but Abaven will not move against the Armada or the Ashen Empire to protect Poem's life. Upon Poem and Motif's safe return to the pack in Summer Year 14, relationships have been on the mend.

Aerie - Unknown

Valhalla - Allies


Winterfell - Neutral/Unfriendly

Winterfell raided Abaven on behalf of the Hjarrandi (as payment for bartering their services at a slave auction) in Fall Year 14. Relations between the packs are tense.
