PostSubject: Reproduction   Sun Nov 03, 2013 3:31 am


How exactly do I 'reproduce'?
By mating of course. Maybe not typically in the sense of the word; you may simply decide with your mate that you want to have Pups/Cubs and then become pregnant. For the more experienced Role Players, we do have specially designed boards that are away from prying eyes. If you wish to role play the act to conceive before the pregnancy, please contact a member of our administrative team so they can help you with that. Of course, you can role play the nitty gritty in human forms, not wolf form.
Your character cannot simply 'become pregnant' if you do not have consent from a male of the site. If the child does not have a father then there cannot be a child.

How long is the 'Gestation' period?
While pregnant, your character will be pregnant for nine weeks in real time (this will be nine months in Role Play Time) from the time the child was conceived.

When is the right time to have pups?
At the left in the table you will notice a section for reproduction. It will say either "yes", or "no" in darker writing. If it is a "yes", it simply means a higher chance of survival for pups. This is generally in the warmer months. Pups born in warmer months will most likely all survive. If you want pups, the summer months are advised. They have the higher success rate.
If it says "no", it means that there is a less chance of survival for the pups. A great number of pups will be lost if birthed in the winter months. We ask that you adhere to this and should you deicide to have pups in the winter months, that some will not survive; but for those that do: Pups that are born in the winter months, and survive, will be stronger than the summer pups. They will have endured more and lived through harsher times. This makes them stronger in their adulthood; but they will also have harder personalities.
So, to counter this, we advise that you and your mate make a decision for the amount of pups you want to have and add a couple more who will perish in the harsh weather; maybe even become still born. Please be aware that this take a large toll on the parents too.


Can I give birth to an infant (human)?
Yes, of course; but your character must give birth as a human. It would be physically impossible for your character as a wolf to give birth to a human.

Do I have to role play the birth?
No, you do not have to. You would set up the thread as if you were, but then just simply skip some of the dirty details; it is advised for the more experience to indeed role play the births.

What happens to the pups after they are born?
Why, you raise the of course. Each week, your pups will grow stronger and within a few months they will be completely grown. Please see the rules (>>Section B : Character. Number 7.)<<) for a guide to age.
While they are growing, you and your mate can design profiles for them in the >>Character Adoptions<< to get them ready for adoption. (This means that the character can be adopted and played by someone other than yourself.) Or, if you choose to, you can continue to play it yourself.

If a pup is born in a pack, is it automatically assigned that pack?
Yes, they are automatically a member of that pack. When they are adopted out, this also means that the player who adopts the pup will also automatically become a member of that pack. When they are grown, they can choose for them self where they go, or stay in the pack of their birth.

If there is anything unanswered, please contact one of our Administration Team.

PostSubject: Wolf Speak   Sun Nov 03, 2013 3:32 am


Wolf Speak is a term useed for people who Role Play as a canine character.
Here are a list of words used and their meanings.
We will not stop you from using any of the words that have no meaning or do not fit, but please try to refrain from it if there is a possible solution. It will be placed incategories so you can navigate easier.

Gender



Female

Fem: An abbreviation of female or feminine.

Fae: Not a real word.

Fea: "Fea" is Spanish for ugly and is thus an insult.

Dove: A dove is a bird. If you are using it to describe, then it would mean sweet, soft and kind.

Vixen: A female fox.

Alphess: Not a real word. The proper context would be 'Alpha Female'.

Here are some ords you may use instead of female:

Damsel: A young woman or girl.

Maiden:

    a. An unmarried girl or woman.b. A virgin.


Beauty: One that is beautiful, especially a beautiful woman.


Male

Mascu: Not an actual word, but an abbreviation of the word masculine.

Brujo: A mexican/spanish shaman or sorcerer.

Stag: "An adult male deer".

Some words you may use instead of Male:

Brute: "characteristic of an animal in quality, action, or instinct." Any animal can be a brute regardless of gender.
Body Parts


Head

Crown: A jeweled hat resembling royalty. However, crown can also mean "top of the head" (not the entire head). But you'd probably use it with "of the head", so it'd be "the crown of the head", not just the head.

Cranium/Crania: Both of these are used to describe the head. Crania is the plural form. Cranium does indeed refer to the head, but cranium is only the back of the head, not the entire head.

Mug: Can mean face, but it should only be used in dialogue/thoughts/other first-person, because its slang status makes it unsuitable for third-person narration.

Facade: "The front of a building."



Eyes

Optics: "A science that deals with the genesis and propagation of light, the changes that it undergoes and produces, and other phenomena closely associated with it."

Pools: "A small body of standing liquid." Can be used as a describing word. Her eyes were dark like pools of midnight rain.

Lanterns: "A usually portable protective case for a light with transparent openings." Again, can be used as a descriptive word.

Oculars: "A single lense eyepiece."



Ears

Auds: Ears, but not an actual word

Audits: Plual Form of Audit. "An examination."

Harks: Third-person singular simple present indicative form of hark. "To listen attentively."

Radars: Plural form of Radar. "an acronym of radio detection and ranging."

Satellites: Plural form of Satelite. "An object orbiting a planet or similar celestial body."



Legs

Pillars/Columns: "A firm upright support for a superstructure: a usually ornamental column or shaft; especially one standing alone for a monument."



Claws:

Talons: Birds have talons.

Daggers: "A sharp pointed knife for stabbing."

Claws/Nails: The nails/claws of a wolf are not retractable like felines. The tips should barely protrude past the fur.



Fur

Coat: "the layer of fur, hair, or wool"

Hide: "Is the tough skin of certain large animals that is tanned and made into leather"

Pelt: "The skin of a beast with the hair on; a raw or undressed hide; a skin preserved with the hairy or woolly covering on it." " is untanned skin of fur-bearing animals"

Basic Wolf Information

Here is a simple Human - Canine Years conversion chart for you to use at your disgression.

536
6 42
7 47

Wolves tend to reach their adult size at 1-2 years old and their full weight at 3-4 years old. After a large meal, a wolf can gain up to 15 pounds extra and than lose the weight before its next large meal.

Wolf weight and size can vary greatly worldwide. In general, height varies from 0.6 to .95 meters and (26–38 inches) at the shoulder. Wolf weight varies geographically; on average, European wolves may weigh 38.5 kg (85 lbs), North American wolves 36 kg (80 lbs), and Indian and Arabian wolves 25 kg (55 lbs). Though rarely encountered, extreme specimens of more than 77 kg (170 lb.) have been recorded in Alaska, Canada, and the former Soviet Union. The heaviest recorded gray wolf is 86 kg (189 lb.). Grey wolves are sexually dimorphic, with females in any given wolf population typically weighing 20% less than males. Females also have narrower muzzles and foreheads; slightly shorter, smoother furred legs; and less massive shoulders. Gray wolves can measure anywhere from 1.3 to 2 meters (4.5–6.5 feet) from nose to the tip of the tail, which itself accounts for approximately one quarter of overall body length.

Wolves rely on their stamina rather than speed for hunting. Their narrow chests and powerful backs and legs facilitate efficient locomotion. They are capable of covering several miles trotting at about a pace of 10 km/h (6 mph), and have been known to reach speeds approaching 65 km/h (40 mph) during a chase.

Their paws are able to tread easily on a wide variety of terrains, especially snow. There is a slight webbing between each toe, which allows them to move over snow more easily than comparatively hampered prey. Gray wolves are digitigrade, which, with the relative largeness of their feet, helps them to distribute their weight well on snowy surfaces. The front paws are larger than the hind paws, and have a fifth digit, the dewclaw, that is absent on hind paws.
Fur Characteristics

Wolves molt some of their coats in late spring or early summer.Wolves have bulky coats consisting of two layers. The first layer is made up of tough guard hairs that repel water and dirt. The second is a dense, water-resistant undercoat that insulates. The undercoat is shed in the form of large tufts of fur in late spring or early summer (with yearly variations). A wolf will often rub against objects such as rocks and branches to encourage the loose fur to fall out. The undercoat is usually gray regardless of the outer coat's appearance. Wolves have distinct winter and summer pelages that alternate in spring and autumn. Females tend to keep their winter coats further into the spring than males.

Fur coloration varies greatly, running from gray to gray-brown, all the way through the canine spectrum of white, red, brown, and black. These colors tend to mix in many populations to form predominantly blended individuals, though it is not uncommon for an individual or an entire population to be entirely one color (usually all black or all white).

At birth, wolf pups tend to have darker fur and blue irises that will change to a yellow-gold or orange color when the pups are between 8 and 16 weeks old
Dietary Habits

Wolves feed primarily on medium to large sized ungulates, though they are opportunistic feeders, and will generally eat any meat that is available, including non-ungulate species, carrion and garbage. Cannibalism is not uncommon in wolves, and has been recorded to occur in times of food scarcity, when a pack member dies, and during territorial disputes.

Wolf packs numbering above 2 individuals show little strategic cooperation in hunting large prey. Wolves typically attempt to conceal themselves as they approach their prey. Often, they will wait for the prey to graze, when it is distracted. If the prey animal stands its ground or confronts the pack, the wolves will approach and threaten it. The wolves will eventually leave if their prey does not run, though the length of time can range from hours to days. If their prey attempts to flee, the wolves will give chase

Packs composed largely of female wolves thrive on fleet footed prey such as elk, while packs specializing in bison tend to have a greater number of males. Though commonly portrayed as targeting solely sick or infirm animals, there is little evidence that they actively limit themselves to such targets. Rather, the evidence shows that wolves will simply target the easiest options available, which as well as sick and infirm animals, can also include young animals and pregnant females. Though wolves commonly hunt large prey in packs, there are cases in which single wolves have successfully killed large animals unaided. One wolf was recorded to have killed moose 11 times single handedly.

Wolves will typically attempt to disable large prey by tearing at the haunches and perineum, causing massive bleeding and loss of coordination. A single bite can cause a wound up to 10–15 cm in length. A large deer in optimum health generally succumbs to three bites at the perineum area after a chase of 150 metres. Once their prey is sufficiently weakened, the wolves will grab it by the flanks and pull it down.Sometimes, with medium sized prey such as dall sheep, wolves will bite the throat, severing the windpipe or jugular. When attacking canid prey, such as dogs, coyotes or other wolves, wolves will kill by biting the back, neck or head. With prey of equal or lesser weight to the wolf, such as lambs or small children, wolves will grab their quarry by the neck, chest, head or thigh and carry them off to a secluded spot. Once the prey collapses, the wolves will tear open the abdominal cavity and commence feeding on the animal, sometimes before it has died. On some occasions, wolves will not press an attack, and will wait for their prey to die from their wounds before feeding begins.
Wolf Interactions

Pack status is reinforced during feeding. The breeding pair usually eats first, starting with the heart, liver, and lungs. Wolves of intermediate rank will prevent lower ranking pack members from feeding until the dominant pair finishes eating. The stomach of prey is eaten, though the contents are left untouched if the killed animal is a herbivore. The leg muscles are eaten next, with the hide and bones being the last to be consumed. If they are disturbed while feeding, they will instead focus their attention on their prey's fat deposits rather than internal organs. A single wolf can eat up to 3.2–3.5 kg of food at a time, though they can eat as much as 13–15 kg when sufficiently hungry. A wolf's yearly requirement is 1.5 tons of meat. Wolves can go without sustenance for long periods, with a Russian record showing how one specimen survived for 17 days without food. Research has shown that 2 weeks without food will not weaken a wolf's muscle activity. After eating, wolves will drink large quantities of water to prevent uremic poisoning. A wolf's stomach can hold up to 7.5 litres of water. Wolves supplement their diet with vegetation
Predatory Relationships

Wolves typically dominate other canid species in areas where they are sympatric.  Wolves have been reported to dig coyote pups from their dens and kill them. Wolves typically do not consume the coyotes they kill. There are no records of coyotes killing wolves, though they have been known to gang up on wolves if they outnumber them. Wolves have been observed to allow coyotes to approach their kills, only to chase them down and kill them.

Brown Bears usually amount to nothing more than mutual avoidance. Serious confrontations depend on the circumstances of the interaction, though the most common factor is defence of food and young. Brown Bears will use their superior size to intimidate wolves from their kills and when sufficiently hungry, will raid wolf dens. Brown Bears usually dominate wolves on kills, though they rarely prevail against wolves defending den sites. Wolves in turn have been observed killing bear cubs, to the extent of even driving off the defending mother bears. Deaths in wolf/bear skirmishes are considered very rare occurrences, the individual power of the brown bear and the collective strength of the wolf pack usually being sufficient deterrents to both sides.

Wolves have been recorded to kill Black Bears on numerous occasions without eating them. Unlike Brown Bears, Black Bears frequently lose against wolves in disputes over kills. While encounters with brown and black bears appear to be common, polar bears are rarely encountered by wolves, though there are two records of wolf packs killing polar bear cubs.
