Joining

All types of canines and hybrids are accepted. PM us for questions regarding creatures!

In all parts of the joining process, AniWaya is subject to 'Souls' general joining procedures. Joining a pack is the second step in the joining process. Please check the joining subforum and ensure you have been generally accepted to the board before attempting to join our pack.

Joining preferences

Out of Character joiners are preferred! We will assume that one of the leaders accepted your character into the tribe. If you have a preference for which leader you would like to have assumed to accept your character, please feel free to message the leaders' account!

If you're making a new character to join AniWaya, certain types of characters may fit in better or enjoy themselves more. Below is a list of welcome and unwelcome archetypes:

  • Welcome: Spiritualists, tribesmen, equestrians, craftsmen, traders, devotees, kind folk
  • Unwelcome: Thieves, murderers, rapists, assaulters, traitors, adulterers

Special for joining AniWaya

The history of AniWaya before the tribe's arrival at 'Souls is completely fictional, and has never been defined too specifically. This means that we leave it open for joiners to create their characters as if they were part of the tribe before it split into two (Confused? Read the history!). A character who lived in the 'old' AniWayan tribe certainly has a profession path and a Spirit Guide already upon finding the current AniWayan settlement at 'Souls, and might know some of the current members here, too. Because of this, there are two joining forms: one for joining as an outsider, and one for joining as a character from the large, pre-'Souls AniWayan Tribe.


Joining as a new member

To join as a new member or outsider, please copy-pase and fill out this form, and post it in the OOC section of your post. Note that if no desired profession is specified in your post, you character will be ranked Itse.

[b]Desired Profession Path:[/b] your text here
[b]NPC's:[/b] your text here (if any)

Joining as a member of the Great Tribe

To join as a member of the Great Tribe, please copy-paste and fill out this form, and post it in the OOC section of your post. Note that if no desired profession is specified in your post, you character will be ranked Itse.

[b]Desired Profession Path:[/b] your text here
[b]Spirit Guide (if age allows):[/b] your text here (name, gender, species)
[b]A short history of your character's time in the Tribe:[/b] your text here
[b]NPC's:[/b] your text here (if any)

Joining checklist

If you're interested in joining AniWaya, we recommend following this checklist:

Join 'Souls RPG with your character
Read the page on the ranks to determine which rank path your character would like to take. You may also decide to have your character remain at a regular "undecided" rank until you're certain
Read the pages on AniWayan culture to get a basic understanding: conventions and ceremonies and rituals
Read the page on spirit guides to determine when your character can find their spirit guide.
Post a joining thread in the AniWaya forum with one of the two joining forms above (whichever is applicable to you).

You can read as much as you like before joining AniWaya, but these are the most basic sources you should understand before joining so you understand what AniWaya is about.

Must-read articles

All pages listed below are noted with a box in the top right, which states, "This page is a new member MUST READ!" If you are a looking to join AniWaya and see this box, read this page!
