notes
  • You cannot claim points for interactions where you play both wolves. In threads requiring a minimum number of wolves (e.g. hunts, meetings), when you come to claim EP, you cannot count more than one of your wolves towards the minimum total - e.g. if you play two wolves in a hunt, you can only claim EP for completing the hunt if there are 5 wolves total, as opposed to the usual 4 (this only affects yourself, however).

  • *The stated number of posts is from your character, per thread.

  • **EP for ‘teaching’ or ‘sharing information’ falls into two categories. If the teaching wolf posts 3+ times mentioning the subject in sufficient detail, they can claim 4EP, and the learning wolf can claim 3EP if they have 3+ posts reacting to the subject of interest. If your wolf does not meet these requirements but still exchanges information with another wolf, they may claim 1EP (excluding meetings).

  • ***This is the only EP that CAN be transferred to another account. However, it must remain on the same character until they either die or leave Doutaini.

  • † To claim points for ‘meeting’ another wolf, they must have posted at least twice and must have acknowledged or interacted with your wolf at some point, as well as your wolf acknowledging them. After this, points for 'forming a relationship’ are claimable, once only for each wolf, using threads other than the thread where you first met. After this, each new thread (where you post 5+ times) will be eligible for 'extending a relationship'.

  • If you have lost your points log but staff can confirm their last recorded points total for your character, and you wish to continue claiming points for them, you have two options:
    - Use that total, but abide by an 'honor system' where you cannot claim further points for exploring territories, meeting wolves who existed since before the date you last had recorded points, or roleplaying with members who joined before that date.
    - Start from 0 and reclaim all old points by going through old threads where your character was present.
  • Only posts made from a character's account will count towards EP requirements. For example, if you write a post from your wolf's account and include a second wolf (that you also play) in the same post, only the wolf whose account you posted from will be eligible for any EP relating to that post.


Achiever's Points
You gain 4 EP for completing any 'achiever’s task' (3+ relevant posts) that is relevant to your character’s current rank, such as:
  • Hunters: Hunt small animals - e.g. rabbits, fish, birds. Take prey from an old hunt back to territory. Take inventory of current food stocks. Kill or chase away other predators that may steal food, e.g. vultures, foxes, coyotes. Train hunting skills e.g. speed, stealth, agility.

  • Warriors: Any form of self-training or training with someone else (but not ‘being trained’ or one-time jump/speed training). E.g. running, boulder-pushing, balance exercises, agility training etc. Any spar related to defending your pack. Killing potential predators/dangers in your territory, e.g. bears/mountain lions (MUST have minimum of 3 warriors to count for predators larger than a wolf), coyotes, foxes.

  • Healers: Gather herbs from another territory. Tend to a herb garden. Take inventory of current herbs. Prepare herbs and other healing materials (e.g. drying leaves, soaking herbs in water, creating a carry-container using elements, finding large leaves to carry water).

  • Pupsitters: Looking after pups during an adult event or meeting. Pup outings. Holding a game or event (e.g. storytelling) for pups.

  • Scouts: Sharing significant political information. Complete a scouting exercise. Meet with another pack for political reasons. Spy on another pack and gather some information. Patrol borders and scent-mark. Kill/chase away predators or threats to the territory. Train scouting skills e.g. stealth, camouflage.



inherited points
If a pup is born in Doutaini to two parents with EP, they inherit some EP upon their birth. The calculation is:
2% of (Mother’s EP + Father’s EP)

I.e. 0.02 x (total EP). Decimals are rounded DOWN. If 3 parents are involved, the LOWEST of the fathers’ EP is taken.

Examples
Mother - 300EP, Father - 700EP. Each pup inherits 20EP.
Mother - 130EP, Father - 50EP. Each pup inherits 3 EP (3.6, rounded down).

Stardust Festival
The Stardust Festival occurs the 20TH March and 22ND September.

For participating in any IC event at the Stardust Festival, you automatically receive 5 EP. There are many events taking place during the Stardust Festival, but here are the basics: if you attend the feast, you receive 3 EP. For all other SDF threads with 3+ posts from your character, you earn 2 extra EP.

OOC Contests
Out of Character events and contests are held regularly across Doutaini, so keep an eye out for announcements. Points from these can usually only be claimed on one character, and you must specify which character when you enter (usually the account you post on). The specific prizes will be announced either during or after the event, but here are the guidelines for most events:

  • 1 EP for entering or participating (e.g. daily events such as the 'advent calendar')
  • 3 EP for small events requiring more than just participation (e.g. SDF wordsearch)
  • 5-10 EP for larger events with only one winner (e.g. layout contest, map contest)
