Lirim

"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. - Socrates"


Lirim is a Lawful Neutral pack, that seeks to offer freedom to study and pursue whatever it is that interests any individual. Lirim strives to be a home to all those who wish to study and better themselves as well as a temporary home for the weary until they are able to stand on their own. Only those determined to better themselves and their community will thrive here and slacking or taking the pack’s generosity for granted will not be tolerated. That freedom means members are encouraged to act as they see fit but understand that the pack will not step in for anyone unable to deal with the consequences of their own actions, and those that actively harm the pack with their behavior will be punished. Generally darker behavior and abuses of power will not be tolerated within the pack, and even with more freedom offered all members are expected to follow the laws of the pack.

Pack color: #77B415
Claimed territories: Emerald Valley and Whistling Willows
Former leaders: Faite Adravendi (Year 8-10 ), Ruaidhrí Adravendi (Year 10-11), Frostbite Wreckage (Year 10-13), Torin Adravendi (Year 11- Current)

Pack Ranks


Tier 1
Dux (1) - This is the head of the pack, but they are not to be considered a tyrant by any means. The Dux serves as not only a leader, but as a peace maker in the pack. They perform all duties that need to be filled and ensure that the pack prospers. They can promote and demote members and hold most of the pack meetings.
Ductor (1) - This is the secondary alpha position. They have the same responsibilities as the primary alpha and are also expected to be treated the same way. Both alphas are there to ensure the safety, well being, and overall happiness of the pack and to ensure its survival. While both are leaders when they need to be, they desire no excessive displays of submission and value equality. They do not have to be mates and this rank can be challenged for, but the Dux has overall say as to whom deserves this rank
Primissum (1) - This is the heir to the pack should one be appointed. It can be one of the Dux's children, a close friend, or even a trusted adviser. This rank is chosen with great care as they are expected to uphold Lirim's way of life. They may trail after the Dux and learn, but they have the same powers of the Adiutrix. This rank can be challenged for, but the Dux has overall say as to whom deserves this rank.
Tier 2
Adiutrix (3) - This is an honorary rank for those who have risen above and beyond the expectations of the rest of the pack. They've either done some honorary deed to gain the Dux's favor or exceeded themselves in some sort of fashion. They are expected to act as advisors to the Dux and Ductor should they be called on. They can call meetings (with ooc permission), accept/recruit members, go on diplomatic missions to other packs, and direct wolves in lower tiers. Typically they act as Beta’s and their duties consist of picking up the slack of tier one. This rank cannot be challenged for.

Maior (∞) - A rank for those who’s work within Lirim is recognized but have otherwise chosen to retire. Mostly made up of retired Tier 3 members.

This rank cannot be challenged for.
Tier 5
Liberi are required to attend all meetings and training sessions.
Liberi (∞) - The common rank for all children under the age of 1 year in Lirim, regardless of their parent's ranks. All Liberi are encouraged to attend training sessions and make their interests known. All Liberi are expected to stay within the pack unless accompanied by an adult.
Tiro (∞) - A rank meant to be temporary, Tiro is the rank for any Liberi a year old who have not yet found their calling or for new members still unsure where they might belong. Prolonged stay in this rank or failing to show any ambition to grow will result in punishment. Permission from tier 3 or higher wolves and give a reason for leaving packlands unaccompanied by a higher rank wolf. (For sake of RP you may assume permission was given but it should be mentioned in the thread.)
Profugus (∞) - Another temporary rank. This rank is for those that are only seeking temporary shelter in Lirim, it is expected that anyone bearing the Profugus rank will have been given a timeline for their recovery, and must speak with a tier 1 wolf to extend their stay with reasonable cause. Profugus that refuse to seek to remain indefinitely will be removed from the pack without warning and refused refuge in the future. Profugus may choose to be promoted to Tiro at the end of their stay or leave as they see fit. Profugus are not to leave the pack unaccompanied by a trusted member, at least until their stay is finished.
Otiosus (∞) - While not to be disrespected any wolves occupying the Otiosus rank are not to be offered the same respect as other retirement ranks as they are either wolves who never left Tiro before retiring or were Peonas before becoming too old to serve the pack anymore. While not expected to attend training the wolves in this rank will have less freedom than higher tiers and will not be allowed to leave the pack lands unaccompanied as they have not earned the trust of the pack.
Tier 6
This is not a tier you want to be in. If your wolf is here that means that you’re an inch away from being kicked out of the pack or is being kept as a prisoner. Being in this tier means that you must attend all meetings to remain in the pack.
Poenas (∞) - This rank is not given out lightly. Poenas are either wolves of Lirim who are being punished for lack of activity, breaking any of the laws or betraying the pack’s trust. Peonas may also be a rank for wolves taken forcibly into the pack. Poenas may also be wolves who would otherwise be exiled but it has been determined must remain within the pack to keep them from their enemies. Peonas may not leave the packlands at all, and any found missing are to be tracked down, subdued and brought back to the pack. The only way to escape this rank is to prove one’s worth to those of Tier 3 or higher and any request to leave can be denied for any reason.  
OOC Ranks
Animus (∞) - An unofficial rank within the pack. This is a placeholder for those within the pack who have died, they are to be honored and their memories respected. They may or may not be buried on pack lands.

Pack Rules, Culture, & History


Equity not equality.  All wolves within Lirim are to be treated with equity and the respect any living wolf deserves, however not everything will be equal, problems will be handled differently with regards to wolves differences and wolves holding ranks above your own are to be listened to and respected. However, authority is not absolute and if anyone is suspected of abusing their power it is encouraged to bring your concerns to the alpha’s or high rank wolves you trust.

Pull your own weight. Upon joining you are given one ooc month to choose a rank for your wolf. If one is not chosen you will be placed where the Dux needs you or you risk being removed from the pack. If you fail to perform your duties consequences will be dished out. Further failure to actively contribute to the pack will result in you being sent away from the pack lands.

You only have one life.  So live it while you can. The Dux encourages you to explore, learn new things, and overall enjoy yourself once you've tended to your duties to the pack. The one thing the pack values the most is freedom and is there to help you to enjoy it.

Don’t start anything you can’t finish. Don't go causing trouble where trouble isn't due. Having disputes with fellow pack mates and outsiders is natural, but should you begin to cause too much trouble for the pack as a whole you will have to own up to it. If you can't take it then don't dish it out. Each member is expected to live up to the consequences of their actions whether they be good or bad. The pack will not be there to rescue troublemakers and repeat offenders may find themselves kicked out or their freedoms heavily restricted.

The woes of love. The Dux has little care who you take as a mate or whom you have kids with. Whether they be from another pack or a loner, you are allowed to make your own decisions. Any resulting litters will be encouraged to be brought to Lirim if they aren't born in the pack, though this is not necessary. Should conflict arise from another pack then any disputes will be handled peacefully and the Dux will intervene if necessary.

Freedom is a privilege and not a right. While Lirim strives to give it’s members the freedoms they need to grow, certain ranks may have less privileges than others when it comes to going where one wishes. Trust is earned and freedom is a result of that trust. It is heavily encouraged that members familiarize themselves with what their privileges are based on their ranks.

Defend and protect. While there aren't many laws in Lirim it is expected that any wolves wishing to join or seek safe haven wait at the borders until they can be addressed. Lirim is not responsible for any injuries or deaths related to trespassing, you've been warned

Pack Activity



Info
In order to assure the pack isn't stagnating we do have a slight activity requirment. Depending on rank a certain number of posts must be made in approximatly a month and a half long cycles. (45 days to account for the irregulatiry of month lengths.)

At the end of each cycle, we will tally each pack member's total posts during those dates and any members found to be below the required minimum will be moved to Grivin rank and be given one more cycle to try and get their posts up next cycle. Failure to meet requirements two cycles in a row will result in expulsion from the pack. Please note we will take absences and outside forces into account, if you're ever worried about meeting requirements please contact Blue or Lolaf prior to the end of the cycle.

In accordance with the original view of Lirim, those who were removed will be given a chance to return however they must wait for one full cycle length and during that time meet the tier 5 minimum.

Please note: Mandatory meetings, training/lessons do not count towards the post count as your characters are expected to be there regardless.
