Pack Lands Layout



Layout map


TALL GRASS PLAINS

From the north to the north east runs a river that functions as one natural border for Tall Grass Plains. Just south of the river is a plot of land gifted to Bird[MIA] and that will later become a garden (greenhouse?) and house his den. To the east beside the border of Weeping Woods houses Resin. Tamsyn's den is along the river, further to the north west and nearer to the Shrine.

Iolaire's cottage is in the eastern quadrant, placed into the side of a hill relatively close to the communal area. Her garden starts on the other side of the hill and trails off. There is a man-made pond nearby.

Zee and Sirius' den is in the south-western area of the territory, built into the natural cove along the shore. On the other side of those borders are territories belonging to the main Ashen Empire, claimed by Deathbelle Klein. Nearby to the north will be a den for Zee’s handmaiden, Odette, and further north still will be a coop for domesticated chickens.

Finally the communal area is present centrally, where a large obelisk stands with the rules of the armada etched into it's flat stone surface. Beside it is a firepit where meetings will take place, and not far off is an underground cellar complete with trap door and that is where the food cache is located. Scattered around this zone are temporary unclaimed dens built to house new members or the occasional visitor.

SEA'S PLAINS
The majority of this territory is sand and water, and thus the Armada's main activity is kept to the Tall Grass Plains towards the north. Sea's Plain functions as the Armada's training grounds, and along the northern border Sirius has built barracks for his warriors.

Close by the sea's shore is a cluster of arenas, strategically placed to have clear footing during the morning low-tide hours, and to be swept clean of blood during the night time high tide hours.
