“Give yourself a little credit. You’re young and still have to find your place in the world.”
- Alpha Jay
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH
Salutary Hoshi was adopted by Spirit back in June of 2018. This character was put back up for adoption multiple times, however, Spirit eventually took her on and made this character her own! She writes beautifully for Hoshi and we love reading all of her posts!
Keala is Ventus & Mochi's most recent addition to the Lubrusca family. Currently 6-months-old, Keala is a strong-willed, fun-loving, and compassionate young beaut looking for an adopter to help foster her many skills––such as fighting, tracking, and taking care of the less advantaged––in the Lubrusca pack!
As rogues gather at the Ferus borders, Spiras and Diablo get into a heated argument, resulting in Jay unleashing his infamous word storm! With all the unique personalities and varying events happening at the borders, Ferus is finally getting its name back as the last to be reckoned with.
BEST RP MOMENTS
Beelzebub and Eureka's 2-month-old bastard Uriel proved to be a stellar horror. She had a threatening stare perfected––"The intelligence behind her eyes served him the proof he needed to wilt under her influence." Her ability to terrorize our imagination was quite delightful as she explored hair-raising concepts of God and divine power at such a young age. We can only imagine what dismay she'll cause the future of Somnus.
CUTESTKnox and Kebechet met at the coastline about one full year ago, our time, and slowly began developing feelings. The two lovebirds someday made it back to the coastline where they met, and decided that they didn't want to leave each other, and wanted to start a life of their own together. Like any perfect movie and unlike any means of deleting a character on TPR, ever, the two literally ran off into the sunset together, leaving it to TPR's imagination what new adventures they might find... "And they lived happily ever after."
FUNNIESTGrace is an uncustomary thing for pre-pubescent pups, so why be ashamed of it? We loved watching Cecilia, who was just a timid pup not too long ago, start her day by scratching her butt with the lip of her den for all to see, before going right up to Parker to greet him unabashedly. "Although she carried an etiquette and grace to her movements, she had habits that were quite... disgraceful. Such as the open display of pleasing a butt itch." Yet, of all things, it was Parker and Macha's PDA that made her back away awkwardly with a nervous laugh. Oh, pre-teens.
Thank you to all who have donated in the past. We do not have any donors for this month, but hopefully we'll have names to add for next month! If you'd like more information on donating and how you can contribute to The Pack Roleplay, do inquire!
These contributions help us keep our domain names, advertisement removals, and storage expansions that become very costly. Our goal is to raise enough money to be able to maintain the beautiful websites you are a part of now, and expand it even further with the addition of serviceable and exciting tools in the future!
Say hello to all the new characters of TPR this month! July welcomes two new Sorelus pups, a Kant litter, and a handful of spicy, fluffy, confident, charming rogues to our numbers.
COMMUNITY LEADER - Hunter Moose
Our community leader of the month is Moose! She has consistently helped new members navigate the forum and learn about TPR and continues to be present in the community every day, both as a friend to all on Discord and as an active roleplayer on the site. These are only some of the reasons she was recently promoted to staff!
QBTSC STARS - Spirit & Beta Violet
Between May 28th and today, Spirit made 213 posts in Quick! Before the Staff Come, earning herself 900B. That's dedication! Her staff counterpart, Violet, made 17 interventions, putting you rapid posters back in your place! Muahaha. Great job guys!
Also, the fact that nobody can get passed the number 8 without being stopped by Germans is really hilarious.
General Ocean Alphess Wren
MEMESTER - @vivaldi
Viv always has ridiculously hilarious commentary to add to any conversation regardless of its content, and can only be described as "the cigar-smoking uncle with the over-the-lip stache who never wants to come to family events but when he does he only offers ludicrous commentary" (Ocean).
BEST OOC MOMENTS
Uhhh, not that kind of roleplay, guys! Haha!
THE MOST - Alphess Wren
Wren: The embodiment of ultra passive absurdity.
THE CUTEST - Beta Violet
We love Sashi and the endless snapchats that Kat has blessed us with. Look at her smile!
I am just so, so proud of you! You have proven to be such a strong warrior in your life and continue to kick ass everyday. You are down to earth, passionate, and hands down one of the most creatively brilliant people I've known. Throughout your many years here, you have grown tremendously as a human and as a writer and I could not a prouder witness. Keep fighting and slaying and writing and doing all things that make you a stellar human being!
Ok so you are a crazy good writer and I seriously love all the effort and detail you put into your posts for every character. Your mini-novels are super inspiring and reading them gives me big boi chills. Like when you complained about your small Mochi post being bad I literally got mad?? Anyways you're gonna be rich, go forth. ✊
I love you so much. We've known each other for what feels like forever, and I honestly don't know where I would be without you. You've been there for me through my ups and downs, been on multiple sites with me, and overall have been a really good RP buddy, and friend. I hope that you enjoy this lil gift for the future >:3

HARUKA - closes August 30th
Haruka is Luke and Seven's son, brother of Makoto. He has only a written appearance, but no personality. His creators have decided to let the adopter decide what his personality should be. This means whoever applied for him will have a great deal of freedom and a degree of character creation!
Information: 5 months // male / Alaskan x Grey wolf // Noctis pup
KEALA - closes August 30th
Wren has decided to give Keala up for adoption. She is Alphess Ventus' and Alpha Mochi's only daughter, so she is a crucial character to the Lubruscan storyline! She is independent, extremely well-rounded in her many skills, and her alpha blood shows in her bravery and ability to stand up for the weak.
Information: 6 months // female // Arctic x Timber wolf // Lubrusca pup
TWO CALEAH PUPS - closing date N/A
Pup Oswyn is a bubbly, low-filter silly goose who loves to talk until ears fall off. Despite his rapid-firing tongue, he is organized and has an interest in salutary studies.

Information: 2 months // males // Iberian x Yukon wolves // Ignasia pups
WIGGLES - closes August 10th
One of Somnus' most spirited individuals, Wiggles is an absolute joy and is loved by everyone. His two disorders, OCD and CH, add to the silliness and fun of his character. He is a loyal companion to everyone he meets and will never fail to brighten everyone's day! He is looking for a roleplayer who can bring out his quirkiness and compassion.
Information: 3 years // male // Arctic wolf // Somnus Guardian // scent: marshmallows!
THE MORTASIA WAR
TPR's second inter-pack war is now in motion, but despite the legacy of the Ferus-Lubruscan draught war, nobody can be prepared for the devastation awaiting the Mortasia slaughter. With a ruthless alpha seeking to conquer all of the territories across TPR, Mortiul may just be unstoppable.
With the help of Ignasia, who seeks to spread the word of Adjenti and use their dominion to instill his influence across the map, Mortiul has begun preparations. Females are taken for breeding strong superiors, and the rest are slaughtered. Ignasia has already infiltrated Ferus to take hostage their salutary, Solex, but have now made plans to take one of their females as well.
This is only the first of many steps that Mortasia will take in their quest to rule. Read more about the war plot and what this will mean for each pack, and how you can participate if you are interested. As with all site wide plots, they are optional. If you would like your character to remain uninvolved, you are not obligated to participate. For questions and information about Mortiul and Ignasia, message Beta Violet .
We greatly appreciate feedback on how to make TPR a better community and roleplay for all of you. Please take our member survey to help us reach this goal. You are welcome, and encouraged, to take it each month so we can better assess any changes we have made in regards to your responses!

New Staff Members
As you remember from our most recent announcement, TPR has made new additions to our staff team: Sentinel Aelin and Hunter Moose ! We are very excited to have them working with us on website improvements, future events, and so much more. I hope everyone has or will give these two ladies a warm welcome and a congratulations. Huzzah!
The homesite has been updated for spring. Enjoy the new look, and comment if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments. Message me for any season-permitted aging requests. These are not yet complete.
New Pack Pages
Along with a homesite update, pack pages are being totally remodeled! Enjoy the previews currently published on the homesite. All pages are projected to be finished by the end of next month at the latest, and age-up requests will be processed as the pages are updated. Please be patient!
New Shop Items
As suggested by you, new shop items have been added and removed. Take a look here if you're interested in making a purchase. As always, certain items are only permitted to donors. We greatly appreciate any contribution you make to the site so we can continue providing our homesite and forum.
New Territories & Map
Slowly but surely, staff have begun adding/altering territories. We are also working with Nereus to create a brand new TPR map that includes the expansions of Mortasia and Sorelus! With this will come the addition (and removal) of some pack and rogue threads. We are so excited to share this with you all, but please do be patient while we sort everything out.
BUNCO - asap!
Sign up now to participate in our upcoming BUNCO game! Earn prizes and have fun playing dice with your favorite people. We only need one more player, and then we can begin!
CREATIVE CONTEST- September 1st
Show us your talent in our September creative contest! Submit a piece of writing, a preview of a book you may be writing, your art (digital or not!), a piece of music, a poem, photography, a story, anything! All participants are rewarded. I am announcing this now so you can start thinking about what you want to submit!
MONTHLY RULE REMINDER
Remember to post in the appropriate channels in Discord! If you get caught up in a conversation irrelevant to the channel, no worries! Just remember to switch over to main-chatter once you realize! We don't want to bury any important information.
For those of you who are new to TPR and not yet used to our roleplay rules, remember to post an exit post before you leave to a new thread. For example, if you are moving from the Muddy Pines to the Brush Lands, type "--exit to Brush Lands--" at the end of your Muddy Pines post. This way, other characters will know not to address you there from that point on. Forgetting to do so can make it look like you are roleplaying in liquid time (roleplaying in two locations as the same time as if time is fluid), which is against our rules.
When can I age up my character, and how much?
With a season change about, many members are curious about our aging-up rules. When we have season changes, we allow characters to age up a maximum of one year. However, characters can also age up if their pack or rogue group has initiated a time skip, usually about 6 months or more.
I do not edit character ages unevenly on the homesite. I will only mark ages at the X.0 and X.5 marks. For example, I will not accept timeskip requests to add an extra .2 to their age on the homesite. Additionally, I will not age characters less than half a year. As a result, all ages on the homesite will either be X.0 or X.5.
You can find more detailed information about aging and timeskips here.
Also, in regards to our transition into spring, if you do not see your updated age on the homesite yet, I have not forgotten! I am adding ages as I update the pack pages, which will be finished sometime next month.

DRAGON POEM - Yona
Feel your eyes growing heavy
Your wounds are not deadly
Hear the sounds of chiming bells
Fall under my peaceful spell
Darling dragon, imagine this
A peaceful meadow that grants you bliss
Feel yourself enclosed in light by
The sunset’s warm glow as you take flight
As the sky turns a deep umber
Allow yourself to fall into slumber
The light will change to silver soon
The milky glow of our beloved moon
Sleep now dear child
Let your power roam wild
Embrace all your magic
To ward off the tragic
Feel only tranquility
Bear no hostility
Breath a deep sigh
Make peace your ally
TPR ON A BUS - Shale
Although this was posted last month, its power is eternal and I feel no shame featuring it for July. And I am putting it in Writing because it is a timeless masterpiece. Behold, Shale's "TPR on a Bus," a list of things she heard on a bus, but instead, as TPR characters she has roleplayed with.
Adramalech: Unless I have that bag of jelly beans in my hands in the next 7.2 seconds, there’s gonna be a murder.
Endymion: *looks through the camp rulebook to see if there’s actually a rule banning PDA, and spends the next hour loudly protesting it.*
Vivaldi, in a very calm voice that probably means she’s trying not to explode: When I find out who just shot a rubber band at the back of my head, that person will be riding the rest of the way to Oklahoma STRAPPED TO THE ROOF OF THE BUS. (Direct quote from my twin sister).
Knox and Kebechet: *have been having a very animated conversation for the past thirty minutes. Nobody knows what they’re talking about and nobody asks.*
Yvaine: *is the reason why Endymion is protesting the PDA rule.*
Beelzebub: *doesn’t say much. Instead opts to be that person who watches videos on his phone and laughs out loud at odd moments, driving everyone else up the wall.*
Feyre: *counting the minutes until they get to camp so she can have some peace and quiet for once.*
Koga and Marusya: *have had their heads together for almost an hour, plotting something that’s probably a murder*
Quentin: *repeatedly asks “are we there yet?” until everyone is thoroughly annoyed.* (My other sister).
Kalia: *was not informed that she’d have to get up at 3 in the morning and is therefore wrapped in a blanket burrito, drinking an unhealthily large espresso and glaring at the rest of the world.* (Exactly what I myself am doing right now).
Achak: *has had his earbuds in since the trip started, oblivious to the world and looking effortlessly chill with everything.*
Kylo and Hux: *started a war over whose suitcase goes where before the bus even left the parking lot and show no intention of stopping.*
Shale: *sits in the back of the bus, smiling awkwardly and mentally calculating how far away each of the exits are in case there actually IS a murder.*
Iliana: *sits in the front behind the leaders, passing snacks and backpacks and water bottles back to everybody and generally being adorable.*
