Aging and approx. human age equivalencies are listed HERE. All characters aged less than 1 will need a guardian IC in order to be accepted and will be in the Commonwealth guild (if in Rionnach) as specialized guild membership begins at the age of 1.

Birth Season: Due to Fae magic in the land, breeding occurs all year as of 1710. Therefore, all characters born before 1710 must have a birth season of spring. Meanwhile characters born in 1710 and later years may be born in other seasons.

For eye colors, if you can find it on the color wheel, you can use it. Taste the rainbow. Note that black eyes are reserved for the melanism mutation and that colorless eyes are for the albinism mutation. Puppies rolled on-site may have elective heterochromia, so long as it includes the color originally rolled. Note: Heterochromia is limited to 2 colors.

Pelt colors are all natural colors. Your character may have as many natural colors as you like. When completing your profile, select the palette that most closely resembles your character.


white fur, pink skin, colorless eyes

whites, light grays, creams

blues, grays,


russets, golds, creams

black fur, eyes, skin, organs

blacks, grays, silvers

Rejected Markings: stripes, distinct shapes
Purchasable Markings: spots (note: face freckling is free), bilateral asymmetry (ex: left paw black, right paw white), and generally merle or piebald designs are available if you purchase the merle item in the shop.

Physical mutations due to genetic complications or injuries such as missing limbs, curled tails, blindness, etc. are allowed, just be sure to add the injury to the character's profile and adjust health in combat to the "injured" category.

Intersex characters may be fertile or infertile, but must choose whether their female or male genitalia is most developed and fully functional. In other words, intersex characters can be able to birth puppies or impregnant others, but cannot do both. This choice does not have to be made prior to the character's first litter, but afterwards, becomes set in stone.

feudal, unique, creative

Highlands: Deeply superstitious, Highlanders are wary of upsetting the balance in the natural world. They are deeply loyal to their family, suspicious of outsiders, and difficult to impress. They admire strength and skill over most all else. For quite some time, Highlanders made the best soldiers due to their skill. After the war, they were demoted from most general positions and many have joined militias in the commonwealth. It comes as no surprise that most Highlanders are ill-concealed Jacobites. All Highlanders typically speak Scottish Gaelic and English. (more information)

Lowlands: Hardworking, Lowlanders are "people of the earth" so to speak. They're less absolute in their morality and have a tendency to maintain a position of neutrality. Most Lowlanders find themselves cultivating gardens or seeking lives of medicine. A fair number become scholars as well. A heterogeneous group, Lowlanders have no particular affiliation. Some relate to their Highlander kin, others have grown fond of the crown. Many see the value of a democracy. Most all Lowlanders speak English and have at least a rudimentary understanding of Scottish Gaelic. (more information)

Mainlands: If not a tad materialistic, Mainlanders are shrewd and resourceful. They know how to make life more organized and, consequently, more complex. They are skeptics in the face of superstition. Mainlanders run the gambit of professions. Many are employed as soldiers, scholars, and tradesmen across the three primary guilds. It comes as no surprise that most are Royalists. Mainlanders typically speak English and/or another distant language, such as French or Italian. (more information)

Outlands: Diverse and unique, outlanders have no unified culture. A general wariness of strangers often leads Outlanders into the Thieves' Guild. However, many are still able to make an honest living. When Outlanders have a political opinion, they span the whole spectrum. Outlanders may know any number of languages as is pertinent to their cultures. (more information)

Hinterlands: (currently unavailable) Long cut off from the outside world, wolves native to the Hinterlands are superstitious, careful, and cautious. They believe in living in harmony with the outside world, not taming it for their own designs. Almost all wolves in the Hinterlands belong to small packs and are content to continue on that way—not bothering others while seeking not to be bothered themselves. When strangers start arriving on their island, many will have to contend with what it means to be apart of this broad, diverse new world. Additionally, they know that their island is actually called Éireland and dislike or are neutral to the term "Hinterlands". Hinterlanders likely only understand Gaelic and may be able to read English. (more information)

Guilds & Packs

Guilds are what citizens of Rionnach join as Rionnach is a nation that has dominion over the Highlands, Lowlands, and Mainlands. Therefore, in Rionnach, there is a functioning army, thriving academics, black market, and diverse citizenry. Every character allied to Rionnach will be a part of a guild. For more information, keep reading. For in-depth information on the existing guilds, please visit HERE.

Packs are what non-citizens of Rionnach join as they are beholden to the laws of their smaller pack (which is essentially a city-state in comparison to Rionnach and has dominion over only part of one land). For a list of packs, please visit LINK. (currently unavailable)

live to serve and die by the crown

Imperial Army: The Imperial Army is enlisted in service of the crown and the people of Rionnach. In times of war, they provide protection and ensure that Rionnach remains safe. Outside of war, they maintain a constant presence in the streets. They apprehend criminals and do their best to serve the citizens around them. They are loyal to Parliament, King Adamh, and Queen Daphne. The army is hierarchical with the following playable ranks from most prestigious to least: colonel, lieutenant major, major, captain, lieutenant, soldier, apprentice. Additional ranks (equal to that of soldiers/lieutenants) include medics, jailers, executioners, guards, and nationals guardsmen. (more information)

College of Eòlas: The only large, collegiate educational institution in Rionnach, it is rich and diverse. Wolves go to the College to study all manner of sciences, philosophies, and mathematics. They also train to become doctors and lawyers here. Playable professions include being professors, doctors, lawyers, graduate students, students, groundskeepers, librarians, and any other school-associated profession you can think of. (more information)

Commonwealth: The catch-all category for everyone not associated with the college or army. These wolves are the bedrock of Rionnach and serve in all manner of roles from being nobles, street urchins, salesmen, apothecaries, mercenaries, huntsmen, den-diggers, animal tamers, etc. (more information)

Thieves' Guild: Any wolf dealing in sordid work such as brothels, drug-dealing, assassination, theft, etc. have a connection to the Thieves' Guild. While the Thieves' Guild is largely lawless, there is a "leader" by the name of Rook that built this crime syndicate. Please note that wolves in the Thieves' Guild do not often advertise their true connections to the guild and often will masquerade in other professions. (more information)

Jacobian Army: The Jacobian Army is a rebel force that has risen up in the Exiled Prince Jacob's name. They are often Highlanders and Lowlanders that have long suffered under Mainlander rule ever since the unification of 1707. (more information)


Professions are fluid and function like pack ranks. So long as the profession you choose is reasonable (i.e. not a flower picker in the army), you may have it and adjust your history accordingly. Your profession can change, such as by being demoted or promoted, and it is not necessarily unique (i.e. you cannot claim you are the only professor in the college).

Packs will likely have a select list of professions that function in their smaller societies. Should you join a pack, be sure to check the pack-page to see what is available and discuss with the user controlling the pack.

Political Party

Political parties are the foundation shaping the site lore and future. At current, there are 3 main parties that will affect future leadership in Rionnach. While not every wolf cares to participate, many have formed their opinions. (more information)


uphold mainlander values and the current union

depose the current royals and put jacob on his rightful throne

dismantle the monarchy and create a democracy

unsure or uninvolved
