OOC Joining Instructions

To facilitate the process of joining a pack, RoW offers the option for characters to join a pack OOCly. To join, simply post a new thread in this forum with your desired pack as the thread subject with the following information included:

Character Name:
How long has your character been in Relic Lore?
Post Prompt Response

Each pack has a specific post prompt that they ask all potential joiners to respond to. Pack leaders will use this response to gauge whether or not they think your character is a correct fit for their pack. Each of the post prompts are below. When responding to the post prompt, please ensure that your post meets the 200 word minimum. These posts should be treated like regular RP posts. How would your character react in the situation that the prompt puts them in? After leaders have read and evaluated your response, they will respond to your application and either accept or deny your character.

Pack Post Prompts



Aurora Heights

Interested in joining Aurora Heights? Please submit your application to the joining thread. Also please be sure that your samples meet the RoW standard of 200+ words. Thank you.

After your call, you are greeted by one of the pack alphas.  They want to know what brings you here, why have you chosen to come to Aurora Heights out of all the packs?  What do you bring that is unique to you and your life experiences.  Finally, upon your answer, they give you a riddle to answer, as well: If you have me, you want to share me. If you share me, you haven't got me. What am I?


Charred Ash Draw

Interested in joining Charred Ash Draw? Please submit your application to the joining thread. Also please be sure that your samples meet the RoW standard of 200+ words. Thank you.

The wolf that comes to greet you is not overbearing in their stance, in fact, they greet you with a smile. How do you show them that you wish to join their merry little band? Do you have a way with words or do you prefer to be judged by your actions?


Clearwater Tarn

Interested in joining Clearwater Tarn? Please submit your application to the joining thread. Also please be sure that your samples meet the RoW standard of 200+ words. Thank you.

You are greeted at the borders by a wolf who holds their head and tail high, making it obvious who they are. After stating your reason for calling they speak. "You'll need to prove your skills, though. Go out and bring back something to show us what skills you can offer to Clearwater Tarn. You have three days.” What do you bring back to them? How does it showcase your skill? They’ll be waiting for your return.


Driftwood Surge

Thank you for your interest in joining Driftwood Surge! Please make sure your sample is a minimum of 100+ words and follows the prompt. Remember that Lachesis seeks loyalty and hard-working wolves. He is not fond of wolves with wandering paws...

Your wolf has arrived at the borders of Driftwood Rush. The leader of the pack stands before you, asks to know why you are here. Your wolf explains they wish to join and the leader asks "why? What can you offer?" What does your character say? What is it about Driftwood Surge that has intrigued them? How can she/he prove herself to Lachesis? Be persuasive, but don't be dishonest.


Fallen Tree Cove

Thank for your interest in Fallen Tree Cove! The leaders here, Moonshadow and Kajika, are looking for those who can pull their weight and work hard for their keep. You think you're up for it? Submit your application to the joining thread and please be sure that your samples meet the RoW standard of 100+ words. Thank you!

You come upon the well kept borders and howl for admittance to Fallen Tree Cove. Do you bring a gift? A gift that shows your potential or skill, or are you relying on your words to sway the leaders? The regal leaders quickly arrive and ask who you are and what you are doing upon their borders. What do you say? Do you tell them your skills and potential? What can you offer them? Impress them with your words, but also your actions.


Oak Tree Bend

Interested in joining Oak Tree Bend? Aponi and Serach are always looking for members who are capable and loyal. Please answer the following prompt with a 200 word minimum reply.

Your call didn't take long to be answered by a pair that appears through the thick mist like a couple of ghosts side by side. The tall way that they hold themselves commands respect and makes it clear that you are expected to submit before any kind of meeting is to take place. They allow you to be the first to speak before your request to join is met with a question, "Oak Tree Bend has lived within these woods for nearly four years, it was built on the backs of those who are loyal and respectful not only to the leaders but the pack as a whole. Laziness and disrespect are unacceptable here, tell us, why should we trust you? Why do we need you to continue this legacy?" How does your wolf respond to such clear displays of dominance and demands of what is required? How will they answer the question they have been posed?


Pookastone Scowle

Interested in joining Pookastone Scowle? Please respond to the prompt with a 200+ word sample and tag both Morganna and Celandine to ensure your app is seen promptly!

The wolf that has answered your call doesn't seem incredibly inclined to speak, clearly measuring you up with their silent, judging glance. How do you plead your case with so little guidance on the part of your judge and jury?


Shallows Edge

Interested in joining Shallows Edge? Please submit your application to the joining thread. Also please be sure that your samples meet the RoW standard of 200+ words. Be aware that both Askan and Reyes are not easily impressed, they’re a tough crowd. Thanks for your interest!

Your call  is not responded to right away. Instead you sense that you are being watched, judged from afar. Does this bother you? Or do you stand tall and proud, prepared for whatever happens next? Two dark wolves soon appear on the other side of the-clearly marked- border. For a long moment, they regard you with narrow eyed suspicion, but then soon cut to the chase."If you're looking for a free easy ride, then leave, now. Because you won’t find that here.”  Once-and only if- it becomes clear that you intend to stand your ground, do they continue. “Fine. If you really want to join our ranks, prove it. Go catch something for our caches, by yourself.  You have a day.”

Upon your return, the dark wolves debate your offering, and decide if you can stay.


Willow Ridge

Interested in joining Willow Ridge? Please submit your application to the joining thread. Also please be sure that your samples meet the RoW standard of 200+ words. Thank you.

Your wolf has decided to show up on the borders within the Drooping Willows with a gift in hopes of joining the pack. What type of gift is it (ie. herbs, an oddly shaped rock, a freshly caught squirrel, etc.) and why did they choose to bring it to Morganna and/or Nicolo? Does it symbolize anything or emphasize your wolf's strengths or hint at what kind of service they can provide the pack? How do they address and present it to their potential future Leaders?


Wild Rye Fields

Wild Rye Fields values family above all else, and they're looking for loyal wolves who long for connection  and stability. Drestig will readily open his home to anyone who is lost or in need, provided they're willing to abide by the few, simple rules and help support the pack. Getting accepted is not hard, but new members will be kept under watchful eyes until they've proven themselves, by Jessie especially. To apply, simply respond to the following prompt with 200+ words.

The border before you is clearly marked, not only by scent, but the shifting in the landscape, from lower grasses to tall blades of golden, wild grain. Your call is answered by a wolf with colorless pelt and bright eyes, asking your errand in a kind manner. Upon hearing you request, the question they provide is simple: "We consider each other family here, do you want to be a part of that?" There's a small smile, an earnest look in those colorful eyes; "If so, all we ask is your loyalty. Will you stay with us, even through hardship? And offer whatever skills you have to help support the pack?" Then the look turns expectant, but no less friendly , a dark tail swaying as your answer is awaited.


Vigils Keep

Interested in Vigils Keep? Please submit an application in the joining forum. Applications should be 200+ words.

A woman answers your call, her appearance cool and calculating. Around you, you feel the forest stir; the pack is present, hidden but observing. She asks you your purpose, and after telling, she asks what skills you possess that will make you an asset to the pack. Those are the abilities you will need to prove; you are given four days to live outside of the pack’s territory and complete what you feel will best demonstrate your value. On the fourth day she finds you again to give you her decision. What have you done in those days that might sway her to accept you into the pack?
