⚠ The Beaver Theory ⚠
Lost River will never be the same.
Semi-Realistic | WolfQuest Based | Duel Species | Character Development Driven | Active

Rules | Setting + Map | Timeline |


⚫ Introduction + Plot ⚫
----------
The town of Lost River was an ordinary place, filled with ordinary people and ordinary animals. Everything was pretty ordinary, actually - the sleepy little town and its neighboring populaces were tight-knit, quiet communities of jovial, uncurious folks who just wanted to get along.
Getting along was something they could not do.
The people of Lost River and the two neighborhoods that shared the dessert terrain with it became deserted, the former bustling communities becoming completely abandoned, totally void of the human life that once occupied it.
The only life left was that of the animals, and one group of them in particular.
The Fading Footsteps Wolf and Wolfdog Sanctuary's former inhabitants were the only "tame" animals that were abandoned in the rush to escape the city. Left to their own devices, the canines were able to free themselves from their enclosure and start their lives anew, allowing their instincts to lead them.
The feral animals have formed their own coterie of sorts, a nomadic group that could loosely be described as a "pack." Being left to their own devices, the wolfish creatures must learn to survive on their own in the harsh environment, each one struggling to understand one minor detail: what's with all the beaver dams?

The Beaver Theory is a group based around two main concepts: survival of wild animals now made tame, and solving a very unusual mystery. Abandoned by their caretakers and left to run amok the ghost towns in their desert environment, each canine must learn to unleash their wilder side and embrace the raw savagery of the natural world once more, all while attempting to discover where their human providers disappeared off to and what exactly the deal is with all those cursed beavers. There is no linear plot, only what is decided on by the players and what their current situations are.
The concept of the mystery is based on the theorizing, both serious and intentionally ludicrous, focused on the Lost River map and if there is a correlation between the beaver dams and the disappearance of man (hence the name.) The entire plot does not revolve around this, but it can be an important part of the experience to the players who are interested in theorizing. The roleplaying itself is currently only based in the WolfQuest game in the Lost River map - if you feel that you cannot manage to roleplay solely in the game due to either technical issues or personal taste, this may not be the group for you.

Wow, this pack looks just about perfect for me. I'm seriously considering joining!

Night is now falling, so ends this day.
The road is now calling, and I must away.
Over hill and under tree, through lands where never light has shone.
By silver streams that run down to the sea.

This is actually a really interesting idea! xD
I'm stalking this~

By the way, I assume it's only in-multiplayer roleplaying?

But one question. Will there be scheduled RP times?

Since the WolfQuest forums do not allow roleplay outside of the WolfQuest Roleplay Topic, your bit in the joining application that says:
*RP Sample: Nothing super fancy, I just want to see what your writing style is
Will need to be removed, though you can tell them to private message you that part instead!

Good luck on your pack!

Oh, sorry about that, I wasn't sure if that constituted roleplaying or not. I'll remove it in a jiffy!

I'm glad people seem to be taking a shine to the idea, though. Thanks for the praises, everybody! Hopefully we'll have some people signing up soon.

To answer some questions:
Semper Solus wrote: By the way, I assume it's only in-multiplayer roleplaying?
Yes, that's right. I've noticed that some people who play WQ are unwilling to join forums (I know it's a more unique sort of preference around here), and I feel the game could carry the roleplay well enough on its own, especially considering the lore of it.
rainiepainie wrote:Will there be scheduled RP times?
Indeed there will be! At the beginning, we'll have a rough, loose schedule to go by, but soon enough I'll figure one out that takes regular school and work hours into account so people have a better chance of being able to get on. This will all be based in Central Time, for everyone's reference.

Welcome aboard! There's a couple of things you missed in the app, but they were things that would be difficult to add on a mobile device, so I understand. I'll be sending you a PM shortly after you've been added to the members list!

Small hint for everybody: it's not in an obvious place, but it is in there somewhere. It is "irrelevant" to the place it is located in.

The secret word is somewhere within the body of the message, written as a note in one of the sections. It is somewhere below the Ranks portion.
The forms on the website are filled in manually. I've added your character's information in already on the Member's page. If you'd like me to make any adjustments, I will gladly do so.

Hmm, if the phrase chat would have given more options to choose from, I would ave considered joining. I find it kind of hard to roleplay in a multiplayer game... so this is sadly not going to work out for me.
But good luck with your pack. c:
