Breeding

Breeding guidelines


  • Breeding may occur anytime of the year.
  • All wolves male or female may only have one litter per year.
  • In order to have a successful litter please ensure you’ve completed the following:
    • Be at least 1 year of age (NOTE: Yearlings becoming pregnant will have a high risk pregnancy! Resulting in smaller litters, higher risk of stillborns & risk to the mother! 2 years is the minimum for healthy litters!)
    • Complete 5 ic threads with the pair in question (unless breeding is forced) Pack meetings and RE’s do not count.

    All breeding that qualifies for puppies will undergo a 50/50 chance for conception! The breeding form in our discord under IC-Maintenance MUST be filled out when an elligable breeding has occurred regardless of whether the players want or do not want puppies. If an elligable couple is seen breeding and have not filled out the form staff have the right to proceed with the conception roll regardless.

    For members that are uncomfortable having a breeding thread (fade to black or otherwise) on site, they may simply fill out the breeding form in our discord under IC-Maintenance without carrying out the act IC. This will count as their "breeding" thread and will allow members to assume it happened IC. Please keep in mind this will not excuse members from any rules or regulations for breeding. All breeding requirements apply & will still be subject to the 50/50 conception roll. Members may not assume characters have bred IC (on site) WITHOUT carrying out either a thread or filling out the form. If it has not been done IC or has not been indicated via a form it has not happened IC. Form MUST be filled out to indicate breeding has occurred regardless of whether the players want or do not want puppies.

    Yearling litter health rolls

    • Once completed & approved staff will roll for the number of pups you are expecting! Wolves have the chance at having 1-3 pups per litter.
    • Each pup will get a roll to determine if they are stillborn, having a 50/50 chance at being stillborn
    • Each surviving pup will then get a roll for 10% abnormality risk using a 10 sided die, only if the die lands on 1 do they have an abnormality
    • Each pup with an abnormality will then get a roll for severity using a 5 sided die 1= low, 5= bad

    2 years + litter health rolls

    • Once completed & approved staff will roll for the number of pups you are expecting! Wolves have the chance at having 2-5 pups per litter.

    Puppies!


    • Size possibilites are to be chosen by adopters, however must remain within the range of the parents within reason. (ie; so a large x xlarge could produce mediums - xlarges; one size or up or down would be acceptable)
    • While there are no strict stipulations on appearance and we encourage wiggle room, pups must still resemble their parents to some extent (color, mutations, etc) or they will be denied upon audition.
    • Players of the parents may choose genders, leave it up to adopters OR opt to have genders rolled
    • Players of the parents may design pups themselves or allow others to input their own designs
    • The players of the parents are free to set their own adoption terms
    • Pups are to inherit affinities from their parents, choosing one or the other.
    • Female wolves are pregnant for 2 and a half months.
    • Pups MUST have players by the time they are ready to be played (4 weeks old) any pups without players are considered to have died, cause may be determined by parents.

    Puppy Development


    • Birth: Pups are born blind and deaf with limited motor capacities and are limited to a slow crawl. They have little, if any sense of smell. Pups are unable to control their own body temperature and require constant care from their mothers.
    • 2 weeks: Eyes open, vision is poor, begin to hear, pups can start eating small pieces of regurgitated meat, pups begin to stand, walk, growl & chew.
    • 3 weeks: Begin appearing near the entrance of the den, begin to play. Ears begin to raise and hearing improves significantly. Eyes are fully developed.
    • 4 weeks (pups can be played): Weigh 5-6 lbs, ears are erect, disproportionately large feet and head; high-pitched howls are gaining strength; mother may go off for hours on end to hunt; dominance and play fighting begin.
