  • Serenity River Pack
  • Along the Sandy Shores of Serenity does our pack run
========================================
Welcome to our WolfQuest Advertising thread!

We invite you to come take a look at our WQ thread page. We have many exciting and unique features to our pack we hold several accounts such as the pups, enemies and families. When the time is right we award members the accounts and they are allowed to bring in any other wolf or non-wolf they want to help spice up RP. Here are some rules that you must consider if you wish to join though.

Rules
  • Please respect your fellow pack members. We are all here to enjoy this pack together and being rude or unkind will not help the positive atmosphere we hope to create.
    Follow all WolfQuest Forum rules.
    Roleplay realistically please, there shall be NO super powers, NO automatic killing, and although this is more of a request than a rule, we would appreciate if you roleplay as only one wolf as to avoid confusion.
    Although everyone has different ranks, no one is better than anyone else. Please do not look down or demean others because of their rank.
    If you have an issue with any of these rules or anything within the pack, please talk to one of the alphas about it and we will see what we can do.
    Only the Alphas may have pups.
    Please refrain from using chat speak, it may make sense to you but it confuses others.
    There shall be absolutely NO cussing in this pack.
    Do not use any of our ideas without permission from me. I will contact moderators immediately.
    Please try to post more than three words. Other wise it is spam and against Wolfquest Rules.

Come and take a look at our Page here!

Welcome to Elemental Wolves pack!

We are a pack of mature wolves, though we still enjoy many activities and contests. Our pack will always have open arms for new wolves to join us, and we will always be accepting pack friends, alliances, and enemies as well. After you join and have completed your RP para session with me on the pack forum, you will be raised to your normal rank. But, immediately after you join, you will have the ability to participate in activities and what not. However, most of what we do is off-site, on our forum.

We hope to see your application! We would love for you to join us!

Welcome to the Western Pines Pack, fellow Wolfquest Community member!
Welcome to the Western Pines Pack, a simple, organized, yet fun pack! I will accept anyone, but will ban anyone that continuously breaks our rules. So yeah, just use common sense and you will have lots of fun here!

This pack's main goal is to be fun. But you can also:
roleplay, chat, compete in contests, play in private multiplayer games, and of course, learn about wolves! We are a fictional pack, but realistic in roleplay. In roleplay, odd wolf behaviors will happen, but not any powerplaying or things.

So if you think this pack is for you, then read the pack topic (link above) and drop me a line with the form! If not, then consider anyway xD (just kidding.... maybe.)

Are you looking for a mature and organized pack? Well you’ve come to the right place! Kepler Falls is a WolfQuest Community Pack with their own domain for forums and loads of activities to keep the members interested and having fun! The Role-Play will be very involved with lots of enjoyment involved, and anyone can join the pack regardless of post count status or other requirements other packs may have! Everyone is welcomed and involved, and no one is ever left out. In this pack there are the “Pack Council League” and then the “Regular Members”. In our simplistic structure, pack members can “level up”. Everyone starts out as a Pup and works their way up our ladder of success, ending at “The Wise One” which is the highest rank you can achieve. In this awesome pack we also have rewards and extras including Member of the Month, the Leader Board, the Hall of Fame, and other assorted prizes! Clearly, our pack is the one to be in and we hope to see you there ;]

..........................................................ĬҝşħρäŁ~ ҒǿЯΣvêř βσύήδ.............................................................

Welcome, weary traveller, to Ikshpal. Here, the Elements rule supreme over the four Main Provinces; Uisce -Water-, Ignis -Fire-, Viridis -Earth- and Zephyrs -Air-.

Until the fateful day when a wolf is deemed ready to be Bound, wolves wander in our ancestral packs throughout the Solas -Light- Province. Solas wolves are allied to the Provinces and Elements. Each lifespan, the 4 Elements gather in their Incarnate forms, to choose the next High Queen and King. This pair rule over the Provinces their whole lives, which are considerably longer than our ancestors'.

But alas, no world is perfect and Ikshpal is no exception. On the borders of the Provinces are the BurukTanah, the Badlands. Here, outcasts and fiends dwell, stalking among the remnants of bones. A word of caution. Once entered, no wolf has ever returned.

Wolves, over the centuries since the time when our ancestors ancestors arrived in Ikshpal, we have grown larger and smarter. Our paws are more flexible and prehensile. Our minds have developed and we have created Ikshpal.

Are you ready to be Bound... forever? If not, then return from whence you came. But if you dare brave Ikshpal, then please... read on.

Come quickly, traveller, for the portal is about to close...: http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=46677
