Important Message
January 8th

Hey Doutain! I'm sure you have noticed the 'Important Message' we sent you all in regards to plagiarism and copyright infringement. Although our system says that every member has been sent that message, there might be a chance that it has not arrived yet to your accounts. If that is the case, please visit this page for the update. Plagiarizing and stealing is something we have always taken seriously as a site, and we thank you for your cooperation. :) Have a great day!
Graphics of the Gods & Alpha Challenges
January 7th

Hey all! We hope the New Year is treating you all better than 2016 did, so far. After some requests, we agreed to a ten day extension for the Graphics of the Gods contest so all of you have a chance to get your submissions in until January 25th without feeling stressed! :D We realized that the holidays really kept everyone busy, so we hope that gives you all enough time to continue to dazzle us with all of your wonderful creations <3 Two days ago, a Divine Intervention was posted in the Devil's Ruins to heal one of the wolves involved in an Alpha Challenge. As you are aware, we clarified recently that the intent of a spar in the Ruins had to be stated clearly from the beginning and that it could not be changed once it was posted. This was mostly to ensure that no character ended up in a lose-lose situation and to continue to keep up with fairness for both parties. This recent clarification, effectively piggy-backed the age-old rule of the Ruins that states "Alpha Challenges cannot be fought to the death." Though many characters have, in the past, died as a result of an Alpha Challenge in the Ruins, it was not without the say-so of the writer playing the character. Often times, these deaths occurred after a suggestion was made by those judging, but it was never something that should have been explicitly forced upon a writer for a Ruins Alpha Challenge. While staff is deeply sorry for those past instances, we will not be forcing anyone to choose death because of realism for an Alpha Challenge in the Ruins, as we will be keeping to what the rule states if a writer should ask for it to be kept. At any rate, it has sparked a debate between the member base and staff. As a reminder, please be aware that this only applies to Alpha Challenges in the Ruins, and a character's survival is not always subject to Divine Intervention outside of that territory. If there are still things that you want considered, please message any of the staffers online or the Doutaini Staff account directly, and we will get back to you as promptly as possible. <3
New Admins
December 29th

Hey guys, guess what! Teapot! Ok, seriously now. I would like to inform you all that Dout will soon (when I've updated all the accounts) have a team of 3 Admins once again. I have asked both Hobs and Singer to join me up here on the Admin step (I was feeling very lonely), and both have thankfully said yes. (I feel like I've just announced an engagement or something.) Haha. This will hopefully mean that things that often require Admin approval will get seen to quicker which means less waiting for you guys. This does also mean that Doodle is no longer a member of the staff team. We all love Doodle, but her absence over the last few months means that we can no longer hold on to the spot for her. We all hope that she is well and will hopefully return to this community one day. Th..th..th..th..that's all folks! There will be a 'big' update within the next few days. So keep your eyes peeled!
New Point Revamp
December 18th

Gosh, we have bombarded you with a lot of updates this month haven't we? And here's another one I'm afraid. But this is just to let you all know that after what seems an age of sorting and discussing the new points page, we have finally finished it and it is live for you all to see. You will notice that some have been bolded, these are what has been added or ones that are new. We have kept a lot of the original points, changed others slightly, and of course added some brand new ones. It has been decided that you can claim these points from threads made from the beginning of October at the earliest. Anything earlier than that I'm afraid will not qualify for these new points. We sure hope you enjoy fulfilling these new additions and as always, we are open for suggestions. Enjoy!

Graphics of the Gods!
December 15th

Okay you crazy Dout kids, we have some more opportunities for you to roll in the EP dough this Christmas Season with an all new graphics contest! Check out the details by clicking Graphics of the Gods or visit the contest board to find the thread for more information and specific rules. We have been working on a way to have the gods and goddesses be a bit more interactive for a while now. So, in line with an concept proposed in years past, we're asking you to help us out with representing our site's deities! It's so much fun sharing in our site's lore with all of you, so we hope you enjoy this contest. We are super excited to see what you guys come up with! You will all have until January 15th by 12:00am site time to get your submissions in! Go crazy<3 Don't forget to keep an eye out for Day 4 in our 12 Days of Christmas event! It's a fun one ;D

12 Days of Christmas
December 14th

Hey there Doutaini! We totally forgot to let you all know that we changed it up this Christmas season. So, in lieu of an Advent Calendar, we decided to do 12 Days of Christmas! Yay! Check out our games and contest area for each day's holiday challenge! We realize that, by not giving you all a heads up, some of you may have missed out on the first few days for this Christmas event. And just so we don't bahhumbug your chances of gettin' that holiday EP, we will be allowing the last 3 days to be entered by those of you who weren't aware! However, you will only have until day 4 has been posted to enter. For your convenience, the links to those three days have been posted below for your convenience :D So get to solving and coloring! Hope you guys are all having fun! Merry Christmas!

  • Field Of Bones
    December 11th

    Hello all. First allow us to apologise for the lateness of the field of bones threads. As i hope you are all aware, staff life is extremely hectic and on occasion things get forgotten. However, all qualifying threads have now been awarded their 'bones' from Octobers SDF. Please note that NO MORE bones will be awarded now, however SDF threads may still continue if you desire. Make sure you gather all of your bones and post with your amounts, the threads where you earned them, and what prizes you would like to claim HERE. Any EP claimed here can be assigned to a character of your choice as the bones are a collective thing. You will have until January 31st to log your 'bones' and choose your prize/s. In other news, the new points page is almost finished and will hopefully be revealed later on this month. As for Christmas, don't think we have forgotten you at this festive time. Staff have been cooking up some lovely treats for you which will be revealed very, very, soon. Ta ta for now.

    Activity Check
    November 15th

    Hi folks, this is just a reminder to make sure that your character is not on the activity check list. There is only a few more days to make sure your characters are safe. If their name is still on the list when it has finished, they will be deleted, no exceptions. So make sure you head on over there and double check you're safe. This month's characteristic contest has seen minimal entries so don't forget to nominate who you think best to receive this months CC. There will be a big update coming soon to keep you all up to date on what changes have been made, or things we'd like to discuss with you as a whole, so keep your eyes peeled.

  • November CC Nominations

  • Day Of The Dead
    October 31st

    It looks like there is going to be some spooky going's on around Dout for the next week. Day Of The Dead is here, which means that any dead character (regardless of Spirit status or not) can return to Earth and say hi, or scare the hell, out of unsuspecting wolfies. These ghosts can roam around Doutaini until November 7th. Make sure you use the DOTD prefix for any threads that contain your ghostly shenanigans. There is also a fun colouring contest to participate in, so don't forget to check that out as well.

  • October SDF!
    October 1st, 2016

    Alright guys, October SDF is finally here and we have a few surprises for you guys so be sure and involve yourself! As a reminder, all festival threads must use the "Stardust Festival" thread prefix or have "SDF" somewhere in the title to be eligible for points. Additionally, remember that SDF only occurs in Serene Fields, unless specified otherwise. For more frequently asked questions, you can check out the SDF Overview.

    Here is the rundown of what's going on this Stardust Festival!
    New Staff & SDF
    September 25th, 2016

    A big thank you to all who tried out for staff, unfortunately there is a limited amount of people we can set on so the choice was a tough one. But without further ado, I would like to welcome our three newest staff members, Yoyo, Kristi and Hobs! Make sure you congratulate them in the cbox! If you haven't already noticed, Julie has also rejoined the team in a more administrative role. With SDF coming up we are sure to need the extra support and expertise of these wonderful people. With that in mind, SDF is only a week away and we are busy making it a fun and special time for all. Don’t forget to vote for the SDF layout, nominate a character to be blessed and of course, nominate Septembers Characteristic contest.

    Before I go I would like to draw everyone’s attention to the OOC EP Record. Here you can place your OOC EP upon the character of your choice. Please make sure you choose wisely because once it’s on that character, it’s there for life!

    New Feature: Threadlog!
    September 14th, 2016

    The Threadlog plugin has been added, which gathers all your in character threads in one place, letting you know which characters are participating in that thread, who posted last and when, and the threads to which you owe replies! Additionally, you can toggle between active, closed, and total threads for a character. The link to access your threadlog is in the upper lefthand "Main Menu" list, or each account has had a link added in among the other information under the avatar. Hope you enjoy this new feature!

    Staff Tryouts!
    August 31st, 2016

    That's right! We are looking for eager, knowledgable and dependable people to join our staff team. Take a look at the Staff Tryout's thread and post your application if you feel the job is right for you! Present staff are truly grateful for all of your continued support and patience whilst once again we try to patch up the cracks! We hope to take on new staff before the next SDF starts so that we have plenty of help and fresh ideas to bring to the up-coming festival. This means that cut off dates may be shorter than usual. So keep your eyes peeled!

    Spars and Other news
    July 19th, 2016

    Thank you all for sticking with us whilst we sorted the server being down, in light of this, all spar replies that were due on the 13th or 14th of July are eligible for a 36-hour extension from the date the reply was due.

    It has been advised that we all refresh our memories on spar rules and to make sure accurate stats are added to spars (including if there is no move or time limit).

    A new Legend will be announced shortly, keep your eyes peeled!

    Due to our sad goodbye of Julie and Apax from our Admin team it has been discussed and decided that Kim joins Doodle as Admin of the site.

    To finish, thank you all for your input and ideas on the suggestion forum, all will be put to good use!

    New & Upcoming
    June 30th, 2016

    Congratulations to our five new staff members: Ellie, Penn, Pibbles, Singer, and Sorceror.

    Superlatives should be resent to Doutaini Staff, sorry for the inconvenience!

    Many new developments have come to Doutaini, and now we want to give you all a chance have an even larger input into the changes we make to our community. Head on over to the Suggestions Forum and take a peek at the ideas that our members have already begun to cultivate. In addition to this, the Festival of Champions is now imminent. Please make sure to meet the deadline of July 5th at 12:30 am.

    Finally, we'd like to thank you all for your enduring patience -- staff is cooking up some new and exciting ideas, and your support is always appreciated.

    The Stardust Festival Returns!
    June 15th, 2016

    Hooray, the Stardust Festival is here again! We have worked up some exciting activities for you and we hope you enjoy them all! As a reminder, all festival threads must use the "Stardust Festival" thread prefix or have "SDF" somewhere in the title to be eligible for points. Additionally, remember that SDF only occurs in Serene Fields, unless specified otherwise. For more frequently asked questions, you can check out the SDF Overview.

    Here is the rundown of what's going on this Stardust Festival!
    In an update on new staff members, an announcement of the selected candidates will come once the SDF has concluded. Stay tuned!

    Survey & Tagging
    May 22nd, 2016

    Currently, there is a survey on the upcoming SDF Superlatives where we are taking suggestions for new categories! Click here to submit your suggestions and stay tuned for the poll to follow!

    As many of you have discovered, there was a limit of 5 tags allowed in posts before the tagging system would no longer work. We believe this issue has been resolved and you should now be able to tag a larger number of individuals and things should finally work! Additionally, you might have noticed tags that show up as their markup ( @[Character] ) instead of a link, but a PM notification is still sent. We believe this is a result of something wonky with the code that doesn't carry over when a post has been saved as a draft. We recommend copying posts from your saved draft into a new reply/thread if you would like the tags to appear as links.

    Another teaser for things to come, but June is just around the corner and that means it will be time to nominate new Legends! We will keep you posted when nominations begin!

    Calling All Judges!
    May 12th, 2016

    Howdy everyone! For this mid-week update, we wanted to let you know that Staff Tryouts are now underway! This go around, there are three components for tryouts: applications, interviews, and site input. All three of these components will be pooled together in order to select our new staff members. Applications will be accepted until May 26th, so do not delay! We would love to have you join our team!

    Secondly, this is a call for any judges to check out the Need a Spar Judge page, because we have a number of pending spars that could use a verdict. As a reminder, anyone can judge a spar and you will receive 5 OOC EP for each spar you judge!

    Mother Nature has posted in SDF threads with the discovery of a number of different stones! If we happened to miss your thread and it meets the requirements (at least one character that has posted a minimum of 3 times), please tag the Mother Nature account in your thread and we will get that sorted for you! Then don't forget to claim your prizes afterwards. The SDF Shop will be available until May 25th.

    The next SDF will begin June 25th! Staff have begun our preparations for another festive time, and we have posted a SDF Layout Contest to jumpstart things. Entries will be accepted until June 8th!

    SDF Items & New Page
    May 8th, 2016

    We apologize for the long wait, but we are pleased to announce that the special SDF items have been discovered and you can now begin claiming your prizes at the SDF Shop! In addition to claiming new prizes, we have put together the new Prize Page as a quick reference about the individual prize passes. Included on this page, you'll find a list of each member who has prizes available for redemption.

    The pack banner contest has also come to a close, with Scy winning the tiebreaker for Divine! Congratulations to all our winners! The pack pages have been updated with these new banners and they all look amazing. Unfortunately, Tay's winning entry for Water was deleted before we could upload it to our server, so we used the existing banner as a substitute.

    Finally, we have been working on putting together a slightly different process for selecting new staff members, and it is our goal to begin accepting applications within the upcoming week. We will keep you posted once they are available!

    Pack Banner Contest Results!
    April 24th, 2016

    With the exception of Divine, the Pack Banner Contest has concluded! In order to break the three-way tie for Divine and if you haven't already voted, be sure to cast your vote here! The poll has been extended for the next 3 days in and effort to help choose a winner. As for the others, Earth, Fire, Ice, and Rebel were voted to keep their current images. Tay's second entry won for Water, and WW's entries won for Storm, Wind, and Enigma. Congratulations to all the winners! Once the Divine tie is broken, staff will be working to update the pages accordingly.

    Other contests underway include the Autumn Layout Contest and April CC Vote. The layout contest got posted a little later than normal and the deadline is quickly approaching!

    Exciting changes!
    April 13th, 2016

    Many of you are going to wake up to some exciting new changes around Doutaini tomorrow! Thanks to all your wonderful suggestions we're happy to unveil one of our largest overhauls! After a bad year of loss and misery the demi-gods have come together and stand against their predecessors! Thus an old law was lost, and a new law was born! Now gender plays absolutely no part in the ranking system! Males and Females of adult age can challenge for packs and there is a brand new rank "Sub-Alpha"! Along with that, our Rules & Guidebook have been totally revamped, updated, and combined into one informative page! Now these changes may take some adjustment time, and of course there are bound to be new errors and kinks around the site as we work through this transition period. We ask everyone to please familiarize yourselves with the new rules and check out the links that will be posted below. Thanks again for your continued patience in waiting for this awesome new reveal and we hope you all enjoy them!

    A new family has taken up residence in Doutaini, citing divinity as the reason for their coming. Upon entry, the wolves of Dalmasca have split up, looking to each join separate packs. As of yet, their intentions are unknown, but Anaxagoras, the family's second-in-command, is already making waves. He's challenged for Pantaleon's favor and freedom to opt out of the betrothal that she, herself, arranged to Enigma heir, Szymon. Pantaleon and Szymon have both answered the challenge, ready to fight, but what will become of the mending relationship between Earth and Enigma should the intended marriage of their houses be dissolved?
    Updated 01-01-2017

    Vaitan has wasted no time in attempting to close the gap in Fire's ranks, challenging for the open Beta position. Singer answered his call, but became quickly overwhelmed when her son Mace began to verbally attack her from the sidelines, and Vali stepped in to take her place. Meanwhile, Rykerri was growing restless about Mace's treatment of Singer, and decided to challenge him to fight in the Ruins.
    Updated 01-01-2017

    After finally being released from Yoljunrahgol's clutches after several months, Aerys limps to Water's border pregnant and with a broken leg, where she is found by members of Water who tend to her and her young. Unbeknownst to the wolves of Water, she may carry a secret that could spell trouble for Enigma in the future. All the while, Divine's well known healer, Mystery, becomes more and more frail as cancer rips through her body a little more, leaving Divine with a dying healer.
    Updated 01-01-2017

    At long last, Rykerri has fulfilled her promise to Nox. She called her friends to join her in celebration of her time in Fire, hosting a leaving party for the whole pack. However, several wolves were truly shaken by her departure - none more so than Singer, who has yet again lost one of her closest friends. The next morning, Rykerri sought out Nox at the Ridge. The two met in a lover's embrace, their joy unrivalled at finally being united once and for all. Nox asked Rykerri to join at her side as an Alpha of the Ridge, and Rykerri asked Nox to marry her!
    Updated 12-28-2016

    Aventurine and Morganite are involved with yet more conflict at the Ridge. They stumbled upon Atticus, speaking with Azelie about her plans to burn Rebel to the ground out of vengeance. A fight followed. Soon after, the pair sought out Charlotte to warn her - but walked in on a conversation with Singer about an altercation the twins had with Penance at the Pit. Can the pair regain Charlotte's trust despite Singer's accusations - and just whose side are they on?
    Updated 12-28-2016

    After Maneris was refused entry to Ice, she turned to Enigma for shelter, along with her new-born pups. She has appealed to Kurai himself, determined to devote herself to him. Meanwhile Spiridion, former heir of Enigma, is changing the course of his life by requesting to join Fire and Ruellia has now taken over the main leadership of Enigma! Enigma is booming with new members and is currently thriving under her guidance.
    Updated 12-28-2016

    After Lavender denounced Akako while trying to convince Lilith to join her pack, the wrathful God appeared before her and cursed her, removing her necklace and barring her from Fire. Intrigued by Lilith and another wolf named Rorc, Akako claimed them both to Fire, preventing them from leaving without his permission. Sullivan, a descendant of Liam Lioncourt, was also present. Recalling Liam's legendary deeds, Akako gifted Sullivan with knowledge of his ancestor's legacy, and he was painlessly branded with the mark of a lion's claws as memory. Akako briefly questioned Tyrus Valentine about his own family's legacy, before disappearing.
    Updated 12-28-2016

    Charlotte's position as sub-Alpha of the Ridge was short-lived. Nox swiftly demanded a re-match, eventually beating Charlotte. She removed Charlotte from her rank. However, as a reward for the hard-fought battle, Charlotte was asked to stay at Nox's side as Beta instead.
    Updated 12-28-2016

    Canela lost his fight for Rebel, receiving severe wounds. Nox issued a death penalty, which Aventurine has promised to carry out. Endymion and Basil were called to heal Nox, but Rykerri refused to allow any healing to be spared for Canela - not even when a third healer, Mystery, offered her services. Will he survive long enough to meet Aventurine's challenge?
    Updated 12-28-2016

    Briar, heir to Earth's long-held crown, has called Endymion to face him in the Ruins. The long-time Queen answers with dignity, proud of his passion and hopeful of his place as a worthy champion.
    Updated 12-18-2016

    After Sabriel and Kobrin's death, a niece of Singer was kidnapped by one of the Sildunah's brothers, Yoljunrhagol. Now, while she finds out that she bares kids from him, Maneris returns to Ice borders asking for shelter to the man once banned her, Athos, wanting home for her own kids, whose father still unknown.
    Updated 11-30-2016

    Kobrin has died among his family, joining his wife Miach in the heavens, having lived just long enough to see his son secure the Ice pack and the future of the Thors in Doutaini. His children have travelled to the packs to spread news of his passing to his close friends. This came soon after the Enigma pack experienced their own loss, saying goodbye to the beloved and renowned Sabriel Volos.
    Updated 11-21-2016

    The ever-ambitious Canela has made another bid for power, turning his eye back to the Rebel pack. After a failed attempt at recruiting Charlotte to his cause, which left him running for his life and stirred doubts within Nox about Charlotte's loyalty, he turned to the authority of the lawful Ruins to try to secure the pack once and for all. However, the response of several wolves has proven that his path won't be an easy one: Finch hinted at a wish to rise to the challenge, and both Nox and Rykerri issued death threats, while Athos stripped Canela of his necklace where he stood. Even Charlotte offered little support, leaving everyone asking: Who will back him if he wins?
    Updated 11-21-2016

    There was a surprising turn at the Festival of Champions final: no sooner had Rykerri been crowned champion, than she renounced the title and stated they were "barbarians", claiming the contest had become no more than a grab for power that divided the wolves who competed. Seacca stood beside her in a show of solidarity, and the two wolves called upon the Gods to be held accountable for what they had created.
    Updated 11-21-2016

    Lypso'ru has proven herself to dissent from the stereotype of a peaceful and quiet Divine wolf, possibly spurred on by her recent blessing and the support of Hoshiko. She has summoned Sullivan to the Ruins, hungry for revenge and with intent to maim.
    Updated 11-21-2016

    Finch has been making waves in Storm, challenging for the Beta position following the birth of his children with the Alpha, Svana. These are not the only royal children recently born: Water's Alpha, Elizaveta, has also just given birth.
    Updated 11-21-2016

    Maneris and Greg are set to make Athos’ life hell. Bitter for their dismissal from the pack they have made it their life’s work to bring the Ice Alpha down. What better way to do this than to start a rumour that his ex-love was back? Maneris has elicited the help of an unsuspecting Fire wolf, a young girl named Tethys. Adopting the name of Athos’ ex-love ,Mania, she will visit packs around Doutaini to spread the word. Will this plan work? Will Athos lose his drive when he thinks Mania is back? Will Greg and Maneris finally get their revenge?
    Updated 10-5-2016

    After being banished from Storm by an angry Svana, Sildunah challenged the Storm Alpha to a death match. Svana ended up victorious, but Sildunah wasn't done yet! She vowed to haunt Svana until she, too, died. What will become of the Storm pack when everything seems so broken?
    Updated 10-5-2016

    Finally, there is some good news for fire when Wærnyss the lost daughter of Váli returns in the company of Tyrus, a wind wolf who found the young fire girl being held captive by Axelle. Tyrus fought Axelle for Wærnyss’ freedom which turned ugly when Tyrus and Wærnyss pushed her captor over a cliff resulting in the rogue’s death. However, will Wærnyss ever be able to rid herself of the guilt that has plagued her since? And will the wolves of Fire be able to move on peacefully from this incident?
    Updated 10-5-2016

    Venae was purged from her position as Rebel's Alpha, allowing Nox to step up and claim the title. For her complacency, Venae was demoted to Omega, and all Rebels who failed to answer Nox's call were removed from the pack. However, there was some tension when an old face resurfaced: Nichaia, who had not been seen for some time, emerged with the same visions of grandeur he had always commanded. Others, however, were not so easily convinced that he still held power over the Ridge.
    Updated 9-26-2016

    Wind's Queen, Vitalia was purged by Haruko, leaving the Wind pack in distress. However, Loretta Calydor Finn, the prior heir of wind, was recently reassured of her fear and frustration by Haruko, who chose her to be the next leader of Xyntanza's Hill. Upon this promotion, Aryz immediately tried to challenge for the heir position but was swiftly blown away by Loretta. This encounter has resulted in the young queen to be responsible for Aryz, who is now in a coma. A rough start to Loretta regime, is it something to prompt worry in the future?
    Updated 9-13-2016

    After Singer found out about Ruslan's crimes against her daughter Sentry, she called her council together for an emergency meeting. With such a high concentration of flammable tempers, it was no surprise that Váli made straight for the Ruins to seal Ruslan's fate, followed by the fearsome lioness and jaguar pair, Rykerri and Singer. Many wolves from Fire and Rebel followed, with both Nox and Charlotte vexed at the attack on their Beta. A quick explanation eased their tensions and the Rebels washed their hands of Ruslan and his sins. However, there was still one wolf whose pleas were left unanswered: Catori begged for her lover's life, but when there was no sign of Ruslan, it was clear that his fate had already been sealed.
    Updated 9-01-2016

    Round two of the Festival of Champions has begun! With only 8 wolves left in the adult division, the competition is really hotting up as we move ever closer to finding out who will become this year's ultimate sparring champion!
    Updated 8-20-2016

    Wærnyss, a Fire pup, has mysteriously gone missing! Váli, the pack's Beta and the pup's father, has called upon the pack to help him find his missing daughter. Will they find the girl safe and well or has misfortune fell upon her?
    Updated 8-20-2016

    It seems that Riot has grown tired of ruling Water and has given the pack to Jensen without a fight. He would call all the water wolves together and introduce his Sub-Alpha Elizaveta. However his reign would be cut short after the King suffered a fatal blow to the head whilst rescuing his daughter, Needle, from the clutches of the ocean. The title of Alpha then fell to Elizaveta's shoulders. Will she embrace the gift Kei has given to her? Or will she drown from the sorrow of Jensens death?
    Updated 8-20-2016

    Greg, Ice's Alpha has gone missing and despite his loyal and faithful Gamma, Maneris, trying to gather forces to find him, there is one that cares little for Greg's disappearance. Athos Thor, the previous Alpha, has seized this opportunity to win back his title. Will this new reign succeed or will those that remain loyal to Greg cause problems for the new Ice Alpha?
    Updated 8-20-2016

    Fire's Akako Celebration went off with a bang! Bonfires, food and new friendships show off just how well-connected and strong Fire is under the leadership of Singer. Even with faces missing, Fire is strengthening itself - physically and elementally. News of Ice's matriarch, Miach, rocks the Fire Alpha, but she doesn't let it spoil the celebration. What will Fire do in the next few months? Akako's flame is shown to be burning brightly...

    Without obvious rhyme or reason Marvolo Domine challenged Tristan Scorn for the Enigma Pack. The good natured and dauntless Tristan rose to the challenge, fighting tooth and nail for the sake of his pack's stability. However, Enigma seems doomed to endure mayhem and menace, as the wicked Marvolo took the crown and banished the residents of the halls from returning home. His intentions with Enigma remain unclear.

Finding success, he soon moved his sights on to the Beta and Alpha roles, displacing Rodrigo and Finch (respectively) while both of these latest contenders failed to show to defend their rank. With the hostile response often seen from Rebel towards outsiders that try to claim the throne, will there be consequences for Canela's ambition?

    Unclaimed Land
    North of the unsightly Pit is a lush thicket that, at first, seems like any other forest. However, once inside there is an overwhelming sense of peace. A thick canopy filters ribbons of light to the soft, mossy floor and even in the dead of winter the trees are always in full bloom. At the heart of this forest a clearing opens up, revealing a circle of willow trees surrounding a solitary stump. They are tall, wide, and crowned with a plum of drooping branches. Each tree has a carving for its pack; a deep etching so clear that no earthly creature could have made it. Tongues of flame for Fire; a leaf for Earth; drop for Water; Curled lines for Wind; Snowflake for Ice; Bolt for Storm; Swirl for Enigma; Small star for Divine. Wolves who already know what pack they'd like to join normally come and sit beneath the Willow of their choice, waiting for an alpha or council member to come and accept them.

    One of two entrances into Doutaini, Kuro Pit is a wasteland of mud and shadows that stretches far into a mountainous horizon. Here the ground is a mixture of packed earth, watery soil, and thick mud that worsens or betters with the weather. Very little life grows here; only weeds, broken trees, and dried grass far as the eye can see. While it appears flat, the land actually slopes toward a large central pit with steep walls. Beside this crater stands a lonely Landmark; a black skeleton tree, taller than all the others, that seems to cast a dark shadow no matter the time or day. This unwelcoming land is where all packs come to recruit newcomers, or even claim unsuspecting females and pups against their will.

    Reminder -- 'Post comings' are not allowed in the Pit.

    Claimed Land
    At the heart of Doutaini's mountain range sits Gelid Sierra, home to the Ice Wolves. Frosted fields and conifer forests clamor at the foothills, rising into bare, snow covered peaks. Glaciers that never recede cover most of the northern territory, feeding water into the river and housing a network of ice tunnels. Overhead the skies are nearly always cloudy and threaten the wolves beneath with regular snowfall and blizzards. Deep ravines hidden beneath the snow, and avalanches, are a constant threat in the frozen territory with no relief from the chill and frost even in Summer months (only the outskirts ever seem to thaw). Yet, Gelid Sierra is one of the most picturesque territories. One Landmark sits at the bottom of a ravine, where an unfortunate wolf who fell to her death lies eternally frozen in the ice. Another is made from sheets of frozen water cascading down a mountain side. Here, Ice necklaces trapped in icicles can be retrieved for new members.

    Tucked away in Crystalline Caverns are the halls of Enigma; the Caliginous Cavern, home to the Enigma pack. Winding passages bristle with speleothems (mineral deposits of lime and crystal that form stalactites and stalagmites) thanks to a bed of natural gas and oil. Insects and worms feeding off fungus clinging to the walls glow a fantastic blue and green, providing illumination in an otherwise dark world. The Greater Hall is one of two caves with high, spiked ceilings and a wide flat floor. Fed by a waterfall overhead, a lake stretches along the back wall. It's black depths are home to only a few sightless fish and opaque crustaceans, although surprisingly water lilies grow here. A stone pillar rises from the lake where Enigma necklaces can be retrieved. The Lesser Hall is a small grotto illuminated by a wide skylight. Sunlight and rainfall from this opening has filled the cave with small trees, shrubs, and mossy ground cover. But hiding at the rear of this greenery is a dreary Landmark; a sinkhole so deep the bottom cannot be seen. Enigma often lay their dead here.

    The highest peak in Doutaini, Xyntanza's Hill, is home of the Wind pack. Winds from the frigid inland and warm coast combine to make a blustery range that only the most sure footed can ascend. A patchwork of open grassland, rocky crags, and sparse woodland form the base of this expansive territory. On the southern slope, cliffs rise sharply from desert flatland, creating a precipice of stone and hanging foliage. Greenery stretches up the mountain, growing thinner toward the apex into bare stone peaks that are often obscured by clouds. Hanging valleys eroded by the river provide lush rolling fields of plant life in a primarily vertical world, yet not all of it is beautiful. Rock slides are a daily threat, if the winds don't topple you first. A network of caves and tunnels digs into the eastern range, although rushing winds often buffet travelers. One of these passages however, leads to a hidden valley that sits high in the peaks of Xyntanza's Hill. Bare stone rises out of a grassy hollow where, nestled in a large cluster of boulders, Wind necklaces can be retrieved.

    Sitting south of Styx Heights is Mountain Lion Ridge, home to the Rebels. This dramatic territory is made of a wide gorge carved by the Naveen River through sandstone summits. Walls of shale and red rock stagger up from the ground to mile wide plateaus and even taller monoliths. A branch of Aitou Pass cuts through the western hills, creating a thin ravine of jagged bluffs and loose rock. Though Winter brings cool winds and even snowfall, the Ridge is primarily a warm, arid place with sparse plants, reptiles and game. A network of ravines turns to tunnels that lead to an in-ground lake that acts as a hot spring for weary wolves. It's betrayed by an opening in the cave ceiling that spans several feet around and drops straight to the water below. Mountain Lions living near the Styx are a constant threat to the wolves along with falling rocks, slides, and hidden drop offs. In spite of the danger, there are few places so awe inspiring. Bizarre rock formations, carvings, and mineral-colored stones are just some of the attractions, along with two distinct Landmarks. Used for generations, a large boulder split vertically marks the Rebel meeting place, while the other, a spiral of lacy rock in the heartland, honors a fallen Emperor.

    Legend says Lightning Valley, home of the Storm pack, was created by tornadoes ripping through the land. Whether or not that's true, the Vale has remained the same for generations. Towering rock walls plunge toward each other, creating a deep center passage. Several tributaries race down the sloping hills where they merge into a fast moving branch of the Naveen River. On the Valley floor the terrain is made of mountain and creek sediments, creating a sandy shore. Up from the rift rise sloping meadows of mixed grass and forest, with bare limestone peaks forming a jagged edge along the sky. More cliffs frame the back of the Valley, while the mouth opens up into sprawling lowland. Gray clouds often gather overhead, doling out storms to the inhabitants below on a regular basis. At the heart of the Valley basin sits its Landmark; an ageless tree with golden leaves and a hollow in the trunk where Storm necklaces may be found.

    Since the Tsunami, Cerulean Waters, home to the Water pack, has become the largest arcuate river delta in Doutaini, fed by the ocean and two converging branches of the Naveen River. The territory sits on expansive wetlands dominated by grass, rushes, reeds, and low growing shrubs and supports a variety of semi-aquatic life. Near the mouth of the delta sit several small-medium islands, some made of grass and some made of sediment and sand. Even in high tide, there is always at least one refuge above water. The southern tip of the shoreline stretches out into a small sandy beach complete with bluffs. This coastal pack has two distinct Landmarks, the first located in the heart of the marsh. A lone stump with a flat top amid a field of water so clear reeds can be seen billowing beneath the glassy surface. The second landmark sits along the coast itself; a cave to the north that sits half on the beach and half in the sea. Within this cave, illuminated by a skylight, is a stone alter where Water necklaces may be retrieved.

    No land is as rich with life as Gaia Temple, home to the Earth pack. A jungle-like forest, nearly every type of conifer and broad leafed tree grows in these woods, along with several species of flowering and fruit-baring plants. Although not nearly as dense as it once was, this land has begun to flourish again after many fires. The forest floor, rippling with roots and stones, is a mixture of burnt trees, vegetation, and creeping vines making it difficult to navigate at times. Fortunately years of travel have carved paths into the underbrush. Many of the young trees have grown considerably and form a thick canopy that lets very little light to the floor below. Such density keeps the forest humid and warm in every season with little fluctuation. Deep in the wood, protected by a sapling bamboo forest, a half crumbled temple sits overrun with moss and creeping vines. Many of the inner halls have remained intact, and at the end of one hall is an alter of stone where Earth necklaces rest. Recent events have caused a branch of the Naveen to cut through the western part of the forest, creating one of the pack's Landmarks; a moat surrounding a small raised island, home to an impressive, timeless willow tree. The second Landmark - a towering, lilac-leafed tree - sits in one of the decrepit rooms of the temple, surrounded by rubble. Every fruit found in Doutaini grows seasonally on this one tree.

    At the heart of Doutaini is Torrid Desert, home to the Fire pack. A harsh, unforgiving land of year-round heat, the desert offers little comfort to its inhabitants. Besides prickly plants and reptiles, few animals can endure this barren land of scarce rainfall and frequent dust storms. Mountains frame the west half of the territory with sprawling meadows to the east. Only the outskirts of the desert - flat lands of clay and sediment - ever see the smallest temperature changes, but the center of the desert suffers unending heat beneath a usually cloudless sky; he desert only sees two seasons of rainfall. . Here, golden sand dunes stretch up to the sky, making navigation difficult on every level. Trudging through deep sand can wear on inexperienced travelers, and almost no plant life can be found in the central region of Torrid Desert. The only refuge from such heat is one small oasis framed in lush plant life and a few tropical trees for shade. Fire necklaces can be found hidden among the foliage, poking from the sand.

    Positioned in the rocky norther coast of Doutaini is Firefly Cove, home of the Divine pack. This diverse territory is made of two parts - the Bay and the Meadow. Separating them is a small network of coastal caves that act as a 'hiway' between the coast, meadow, and the borders. There is only one way in and out of Firefly Cove, and that is through this cave which is situated south of the meadow and west of Para Siempre. Steep vertical cliffs and jagged granite peaks rise for miles surrounding the meadow. Renowned for its beauty, the valley boasts forests babbling brooks, and a large, open meadow with a galaxy of plant life. The same mountains surrounding the field also form the horseshoe-arched cove. Protected on all sides by cliffs and monoliths, the golden c-shaped beach is home to giant boulders and a wealth of marine life. North of this sheltered inlet is Divine's Landmark; a tidefall that cascades water down onto the beach from a mountain precipice. Behind these falls is a small cave where Divine necklaces can be found. While day has its own beauty, night in Firefly Cove is just as spectacular, with hundreds of fireflies filling the fields and coast, bringing light wherever they go.

    North of the frozen Gelid Sierra, an ancient stratovolcano collapsed into an empty crater. Over time with snow and glacial melt as well as rain water, Lacrima Lake was formed. Reaching several feet at its deepest, this is one of the largest bodies of water in all the land and the birthplace of Naveen River. Although the rim is quite steep on most sides, erosion has worn away at the southern face allowing the river to flow freely, and for curious wolves to venture inside. Gray banks of igneous rock and sediment frame the waterfront with a fringe of sparse woodland climbing up the ridge. Various fish and trout have made this lake their home, along with other large predators and even eagles that have been known to snatch pups. Since the volcanoes death, Lacrima Lake has become a place of peace and serenity with pristine opal waters just right for swimming or ice-fishing in the winter months.

    Birthed by the caldera of Lacrima Lake, Naveen River is made of three freshwater channels that flow throughout Doutaini. In some places the river can span several feet to a mile wide with rapidly rushing waters, but there are places where the watercourse is narrow and calm and easy to swim across. Several smaller streams, brooks, and creeks, some seasonal, have split from the main rivers to wind their way through neutral and claimed territories alike, bringing water to every part of the land. The banks of these rivers and streams are normally rich with plant life thanks to the water-fed soil, and small fish and crustaceans are a common sight below the cool surface. Flowing south, Naveen River ends its journey in the southeastern shoreline where it warms and empties into the sea.

    Although this is by no means a young forest, Iridescent Glade is open rather than dense, with frail trees growing in sparse clusters. Such a meager canopy allows for a wealth of sunlight to reach into the wood, highlighting trees and causing light to flash on every satin leaf. Fallen trees from a recent disaster stretch across the Glade floor but, thanks to an open layout, are hidden by stalks of grass tall enough to conceal even an adult wolf. Some shrubs and perennials can be found hidden amid the undergrowth, but it takes a keen eye to spot them. When the wind blows the entire woodland seems to come alive; trees whisper and bend while waves of jade billow and gleam under the sun. At dusk the glade is painted in a golden wash, adding to its mystery and beauty while morning mists from the neighboring forest and nearby sea hovers through the trees like wandering spirits.

    Plunging into the ocean and forming Doutaini's northeastern border is Grave Summit. A gradually sloping mid-elevation peak, the mountainous terrain is hilly with a blanket of low laying grass and brambles but very few trees. Some flowering plants blossom seasonally thanks to warm winds and moisture from the nearby ocean, peppering an otherwise drab landscape. Despite its seemingly harmless elevation, loose rocks can spell trouble for any traveler. One misstep can cause sprains or broken bones, and with a rough coastline forming the base of this peak drowning is certainly a risk. Thankfully there are no ravines, but rock-slides have been known to occur. Over time the wildcats have moved on, replaced instead by a population of wolverines that prey on pups and litter the ridge with waste and old bones. Overhead, hawks and eagles can be seen circling, completing this grim landscape.

    Falling from the Rebel territory into a lush copse of trees is Jinsyn Waterfall. This complex waterway is actually a series of smaller falls, roughly the same size, cascading down a rocky steppe before branching off into separate smaller brooks. These narrow, softly flowing canals weave through a field of geysers. Jet-like eruptions are infrequent but threaten to burn unsuspecting travelers with scalding hot water. Even the steam rising in the aftermath can cause uncomfortable heat. When not erupting, the geyser surface is a glassy combination of ivory foam and turquoise, creating a peaceful contradiction. A lush thicket frames the border of this territory thanks to the warm moisture-rich climate, with some plots of bare stone making up the banks. Moss grows more readily than grass here, although some flowering plants also make their home waterside.

    Well known throughout Doutaini as the sparring grounds, Devil's Ruins is the place wolves come to fight. In ancient times a temple stood here, large enough to rival the one in Gaia Temple, but for reasons unknown this once proud shrine has collapsed into the sandstone floor beneath it. Almost nothing grows here - save for a few rugged plants creeping through cracks in the ground - but trees and forests make up the perimeter. Within the boundary of the Ruins are several 'arenas'; open, flat areas of different sizes surrounded by clusters of degenerating stone structures. In some areas the temple has crumbled to nothing but piles of rubble, but a few columns and stadiums have remained partially intact. Ambitious wolves may spar atop the unsteady formations, but many choose to fight on the more level ground of the arenas. Recently, an earthquake caused a narrow section of Naveen River to cut through the western part of Devil's Ruins, splitting the fighting grounds roughly in half.

    Also known as the 'mountain of fire', Mt. Pyralis is a small, active volcano framing the northwestern border of Doutaini. Although it doesn't erupt often, this conical mountain has been the cause of many disasters over the generations. The most recent eruption further changed the landscape, widening the summit crater, sealing off tunnels and caves, and destroying the hot springs near the base with a field of magma. Today this composite volcano made of cinders, ash, and dried lava is still quite active. Plants seldom grow here, and only a few sparse trees and rugged shrubs manage to gather on the western-most slopes. The overall appearance of the volcano is one of loose gray debris and rocks that are quite warm to the touch. While venturing to the top is not advised, those who do will be exposed to staggering heat and the strong smell of sulfur. Though the summit appears solid, hot magma still bubbles beneath the surface.

    Once belonging to the Devout pack, Aureate Plateau is a high plain that seems almost on top of the world. Visible across most of Doutaini, this piedmont plateau rises from the surrounding mountains into flat terrain that is primarily covered in a sweeping field of golden grass. Patches of emerald and clusters of flowering plants sprout throughout the area to contrast the gilded plains. Seen from the borders, but much further inland, are a strange compilation of rock formations - granite monoliths and pillars shaped and arranged in thought provoking positions - believed to be created by the gods when the territory was shaped. Just east of these structures the grass gives way to a smooth, pale gray stone floor bleached white by the sun in some places, and stretching to the far end of the territory. Clouds rarely make an appearance in the endless blue sky, making this a prime spot for sun bathing or star gazing.

    Nestled in the arms of two conjoined peaks, Para Siempre has been Doutaini's Cemetery since the beginning of time. A grove of dew laden grass and creeping ivy, this peaceful vale has few other plants or trees beside one distinct Landmark. At the head of the cemetery is an aged, gnarled willow tree that is almost beyond recognition. It stands as a vigil in this unnaturally quiet place of reverence and mourning, frozen in time. Grave markers are strewn across the territory; some are simple mounds of dirt, while others used stones to mark burial sites. Mist from the nearby ocean only adds to the wonderment of the unknown deceased. Those coming to mourn or visit past loved ones may enjoy a sunset over the sea, which is said to rival the sights of Shoshana Shore and bring comfort to weary hearts. During the Day of the Dead, ghosts often gather here to revisit the living.

    If you have had a character die in Doutaini, feel free to create a board for them, decorate it as you wish and describe the tombstone or marking they have over their corpse. Wolves may gather here simply to visit the dead, spirit wolves sometimes acting as a guide in hopes to conjure those last words from the deceased on to their family.

    Land pours down into the gaping entrance of Crystalline Caverns, which sits against the sloping side of a mountain similar to Grave Summit. An impressive sight, but not when compared to the labyrinth within. Created by gas and mineral deposits, selenite crystals have formed along limestone walls, jutting from all angles. Light from the outside world is reflected off these gems, creating a luminous glow several feet beyond the entrance. But deeper in the caves, darkness and shadows play tricks on the mind of travelers, and the winding tunnels make it easy to get turned around. Dead ends, narrow corridors, and hidden chasms are just a few of the dangers these caverns hide. There is only one cave deep beneath the surface that opens up to an underground lake. Selenite gypsum crystals that have broken off and fallen to the bottom glisten in the dull light of glow worms living on the cave walls, creating a kaleidoscope effect.

    Recent flooding has turned Malignant Mire into an extensive brackish swamp fed by streams and ocean tides. Surrounding woods and fields form a dry fringe which is easy to navigate and much safer than the inland bog. Semi-dry ground gives way to chest high water that can change from shallow to deep at a moments notice. Dead foliage and trees unable to fully decompose thanks to waterlogged soil combine to create unstable strips of acidic peat moss where other hardy plants manage to bloom. The water itself is murky with a layer of algae that hides snakes, crocodiles, and various fish beneath the surface. Caution is an absolute necessity when swimming through these treacherous waters. Slender trees with submerged roots scantly litter the mire, creating a sickly swamp forest. In the early morning hours, heavy mist shrouds the bog making vision difficult while evening high tides threaten to drown unsuspecting souls in quicksand-like mud.

    As one of the largest mountain ranges within Doutaini, Styx Heights has earned it's hellish name. This broad belt encompasses almost the entire northern region, and is the backbone of several pack territories. Trenches and steep divides segment the mountain into numerous peaks of argillite, limestone, and metamorphic rock, but none are passable. Navigation through the steep mountains is dangerous even to the most skilled climbers; thin atmosphere, loose rocks, and a network of passages and narrow land bridges are only a few of the challenges faced by curious visitors. Big cats have also been known to frequent these cliffs such as Puma and Lynx while buzzards circle the sky. Prey such as mountain goats and horned sheep are yet, another temptation for predators including wolves. This dangerous, precarious range of mountains also sees a variety of weather from blustery winds to cracking thunderstorms. Some shrubs and weeds may grow along the lower altitudes, but the saw-like cliffs are made of exposed rock. Only the swift, or the foolish, dare to traverse these peaks.

    Shrouded in mist rising out of the sea, Hakai Mists Forest is the largest woody forest in Doutaini. A wealth of conifers - cedars, evergreens, firs, pines, etc. - crowd this densely populated territory alongside deciduous trees. Bristling branches often interlock to create a prickly canopy that lets in almost no sunlight, yet there is a thriving undergrowth of flowering and fruit-baring plants that clusters near the bank of two streams twisting through the wood. Fallen needles have helped to foster a semi-acidic soil in which lichens and various moss also thrive in abundance. Intense humidity fostered by these close-growing plants combined with cool ocean winds has created an eternal veil of mist that floats through the trees. At the heart of this forest lies an old Landmark; an underground temple destroyed from the inside, sits as a mound of rubble within a crater surrounded by trees. Besides the threat of getting lost there are no large predators, only birds and critters, making it a good place for young wolves to come play.

    Teaming with life, the southern beach of Shoshana Shore is far from ordinary. Golden sands from the fringe of nearby Water pack lands overwhelm the coast line, driving back marsh and meadow alike. Made of rhyolite and quartz deposits accumulated over time, the shoreline is a dazzling white gold that plunges into an ocean of cobalt blue and aquamarine. Strange and beautiful fish populate the underwater world, but on land a wealth of animals - shorebirds, gulls, sea otters and crustaceans - call this beach home. Recent flooding has altered the shoreline, uprooting much of the old flora and creating a haven for sea loving wolves to sunbathe, swim, fish, or gather to watch one of the most spectacular sunsets in all of Doutaini. Dusk seems to transform the beach into a tranquil paradise of still waters and a galaxy of colors from the setting sun as it's reflected off the ocean surface. Such a beautiful sight often attracts lonely or love-struck souls.

    Once part of Torrid Desert, the soul mirrors serve now as a reminder of those who died during the Fire mutiny. Left over from a casting of Magma Manciple by former Rebels Vexx and Rat Valentine, two crystal plates stare out of a golden landscape, reflecting the daylight sun and night moon in pairs. Surrounding them is a land of packed dry sandstone with hardy vegetation as the only form of life. The clear glass pools shimmer eternally from fragments of necklaces that burst in the extreme heat. Made of stardust, their color and glow never fades and seems to pulse with the essence of those who perished here, trapped forever in the frozen, swirled vault. At the height of day these connected graves can be hot to the touch, but come midnight are a cool refuge for desert-worn paws. Wolves who remember the battle see this as a place of reverence, but for many these pools are as mysterious as the gods themselves.

    With rolling hills of plenty, Crimson Meadows has become a frequent hub for deer, hare, and other prey. Now mainly used for hunting, wolves come to form parties with their pack or strangers in hopes of making a kill. Young wolves also come here to learn, but almost always with a watchful teacher. Such bountiful game has been known to attract other predators as well, like bears and even cougars who are not afraid to steal a hard earned meal or prey on the wolves themselves! Tall, free growing grass makes for ample cover and the undulating terrain allows skilled hunters to get the advantage over their quarry. Beside the abundance of grass, nearly every kind of low growing perennial and fruit-baring bush in Doutaini can be found here, creating a medley of colors and smells. Ruddy tipped reeds poking from the grass level add a crimson sheen to the green meadow, earning the land its gruesome namesake.

    An open, sunny meadow, Serene Fields supports a wide array of flowers and fruit-bearing plants amid a sea of emerald grass. It's a safe haven for pups and adults alike, with plenty of room for games, relaxing, or gathering supplies for a healer's cache. Endless blue skies are usually calm with rolling clouds ushered by warm winds from the eastern coast. And with a western border framed by mountains and desert flatland, it's easy to feel like Serene Fields is the center of the world. Despite its great beauty and tranquility, this land is most well known for the celebrations hosted here. During one such event, a shrine of stone wolves was erected by the gods. However, not two festivals later, this symbol of unity was swallowed up by the earth leaving only a fissure of churned soil and rocks. A branch of the Naveen bends through the grass, with seasonal streams branching off and bringing water to all ends of this magical prairie.
