The pack bonds through a series and arrangement of pack related events, including but not limited to the ones listed below.
Pack meetings are held roughly once a month. During these meetings the pack will gather in a circle in the clearing, signifying their unity among the family and the council members will go over things such as discussions on various topics, promotions, demotions, and ceremonies, as well as other important pack wide information.
Out of Character Discussion
All meetings are held in the In Character Channel and begin with Out of Character discussion in regards to special notes, upcoming events, changes to the rules or other aspects of the pack and other important information. During the OOC discussion you are asked to halt all roleplay activity and participate by indicating if you understand what is being said by marking with a hyphen (-) or indicating that you have a question, comment or concern about what is being said by marking an ex (X) Please do not be afraid to speak up, however please remain on track and on topic. The council will ask for any other topics that need to be discussed at the end if you feel something is not covered.
In Character Proceedings
Once the Out of Character portion is complete, we move onto matters in character including any updates about plots or characters. Then will be moved onto rank promotions, demotions, and ceremonies.
There are a number of different ceremonies that can take place. Adoptions, Spirit Bonds and Mateships being the most common. These Ceremonies require a council member to solidify a bond of some sort so that it may be accepted in the eyes of the pack as a whole.
Less often but more fun are Lorenights. This activity is much like our version of Show and Tell. A theme is set for the Lore and it is either done In or Out of Character. Depending on the theme, those who wish to participate are welcomed to come together an bring a piece to share with the pack that meets the theme of the Lore. Pictures, Short stories, Memories, Music, ect. We do not mind if things are not original works but appropriate credit must be given.
Hunting is done as a group and individually but anytime it is a good way to build strong lasting bonds by working together to sustain the pack family. Pack hunts are often scheduled but can occur at random times while individual hunting can occur anytime a council or hunter is available to oversee the event. Hunting, no matter when or how must be done using the bot unless otherwise instructed by the council
