  • Allow more than two companions [non-combat] (suggested by lazuli)
  • More systems for hunting, healing, nav (suggested by kingpedle)
  • Some ghosty things (suggested by laz and bri)
  • A custom threadlog (ability to sort, remove threads? add threads, "watched" threads, notes) (suggested by RK)
  • Post templates tweak (ability to sort) (suggested by Joe)
  • Postlog tweaks (sort by most recent) (suggested by Teegan)
  • Dark mode for ACP (suggested by Bunni)

Second idea for postlog organization, having each member be able to pin their postlog so that whoever is active will be able to find them easily?

I'd like to see an option to have all gems placed on your OOC account. I prefer to have mine there as it makes buying items much easier rather than having to grab gems from multiple accounts. I think it would be easier and more efficient for everyone in the long run.

A section in the breeding rules for the use of Mystery Litter passes as there still seems to be some confusion and concerns when those are being used! Perhaps add sections as well for other specialty breeding/litter items (gay litter passes, jumbo litter passes, etc)

Also other sections added to the guidebook for other specialty items, things that can be used for fights, races, breeding, aging, etc etc for what they can/can't be used for/on, and all that jazz (you get the idea)

Please note: Medusa is a wildcard! While she is mostly kind, friendly, and eager to help, she can equally be cold, aggressive, and eager to murder you depending on how you treat her! She refers to herself and often, others, in the third person (illeism), and occasionally has tics due to her Tourettes (mostly in the form of her head twitching or giggling at inappropriate moments). She is a blood & gore type of character, and is not above killing, maiming, or other such violent actions if she's given a reason to do so. It's often in your best interest to not cross her or get on her bad side...unless you want her to steal your skin and bones c:

Perhaps a tag or option to mark a thread as complete once the players are done so that it's easier for staff to go through non-pack lands to clean up.

A skill for fighter (or healer, honestly, because it would be a skill relying upon relative body build) that allows for bonus damage for small/extra small characters when they fight extra large/dire characters!

Just a little build-off of what Jackal said because I love this, it could be called David and Goliath or Herculean and have like a sprite of a super smol wolf squaring up against a giant wolf

I write sins not tragedies


I respond best to DMs on Discord or in the Ardent channel!

Come play with my lovelies!

Adoptions channel for discord. I know the one on site can always be checked, but I think a specific channel for announcing & discussing adoptions specifically would be great and not get lost in plot/gen chat c:

Putting "Band" after a band name looks cheesy and is hard to take seriously. Perhaps an icon that denotes a band? Like the pack pawprints, but maybe a loping wolf, showing that bands have to move? This way you'll clearly show that you're in a band, but you aren't in The Band Band, if you get what I'm saying.
Chimera is a very adult character and takes part in very adult situations. Don't read his threads. Ever.

Can we get regional lines on the map to tell which areas are east/west/north/south?

currently, the fertile specialty only applies to female characters. could there be discussion around it applying for one litter per ic year for males too? perhaps with the caveat that they can't be stacked.
As her keepers, Gilgamesh and Modesty may join any of Jael’s threads if they deem necessary.

Allowing a transparent, visual reference of your character instead of writing out a full description would be nice.

If OOC names on character profiles could be a link that clicked to the ooc accounts, that would be cool!

Also, if authors could be italic when they are not accepted

Being able to view JUST the threads the characters are in - like with the posts but only 1 link per thread instead of each individual post

item suggestion--
an item that allows a second specialty of the same skill to be unlocked, provided all other conditions are met (second skill is mastered, unlock is purchased at full store price.)
perhaps as a "grey tier" or common item, as it would only be useful to a limited number of characters. it also still has additional requirements for use, but i think it would help add more fun ic flavor to some skills.
also, after some thought, i don't think it would be game breaking for any combat systems as only one specialty may be applied at a time.

example combos i've been thinking about--
bard + professor
seer + professor
shepherd + bloodletter

A guidebook section for characters using the permanent somnium/ethereal somnium pass! A little section for what they can and cannot do, what's allowed or not etc pretty please <3 whether or not they can join packs, fight (spars, Dominance, raids, sieges, etc) breeding rules for them (obviously with emphasis that they understandably need a somnium breeding pass etc.

Idk I think it'd be useful to have am faq or something for these specific ones as I'm sure questions will come and clarity will be needed!

I think it'd be nice to have a little skill thing someone could claim if they're helping someone else out by doing a thread their character doesn't have. For example: Solaire is healing/fighting, but I'm going to have a thread with Ember who is fighting/intellect to have her craft a set of bags for his companion. She'll be able to claim intellect points for the crafting, but I don't have anything applicable for Solaire to claim. Even if it was just like 5-10 points, it might be a little bit of an incentive to diversify the kinds of threads we do!

Offer a single minor mutation as a package in a lower amounted donation (maybe $25?), given most characters on site have a mixture of minor mutations and it’s not exactly a rare item to obtain (from my perspective). $50 seems steep for something so common.
