( DO NOT EDIT INTO WITHOUT ALPHA OR BETA'S PERMISSION! )
You limped through a dark forest, over rough thorns and damp leaves as the moon shone dimly overhead. Blood was left in your tracks from your bleeding paws, which throbbed with pain with every step. The darkness around you seemed to swallow up all hope of survival, and the cold felt like it was soaking into you, numbing your mind until nothing but dread remains. The sounds of the giant noises that chased you into this damp grave still rang in your ears. You felt something's presence, but when you looked around, there was nothing. You closed you eyes and press on, you must find help, shelter, anything in this cold wasteland.
After hours of torturous searching, you finally find a small, abandoned fox den. You limped inside, your legs frozen and weak, and collapse on the stone floor, blood beginning to pool as the thought of rest consumes you. Your last clear thoughts are if you will even survive until the next morning as you fall asleep.
You blink your eyes open, dawn's light streaming through the entrance of the cave, and temporarily blinding you. There is movement next to you. You shake the frost that had settled on your pelt overnight off and look up. As your eyes ajust to the light, a small cream colored canine appears next to you.
"Are you okay?, she asks, "Our pack is nearby." The canine glances at a small hole in the burrow.
You stutter nervously. What could this dog be talking about?
The canine trots over to a hole in the burrow. '"I am Hope, Beta of the Pack of Harmonious Howls. Follow me, the Alpha is waiting outside." She leaped out of the burrow in a fluid motion, disappearing into the bright sunlight.
You turned towards the hole in the burrow, a silver muzzle reaching in and dragging you out of it carefully. As you emerge from the burrow you notice many things. The beautiful light of the dawn is everywhere, completely transforming the once gloomy forest into a paradise. As you look around the forest, your eyes stop the dog the silver muzzle belonged to. It was a beautiful silver wolf, her fur rippled as she spoke, the sunlight streaming down upon her making her fur shimmer. The silver wolf spoke, her voice gentle, like that of a calm stream.
"I am Mist, Alpha of the Pack of Harmonious Howls." She gently helps you to your paws. "You are safe now." She smiles sweetly, then motions with her tail for you to follow her.
Speechless, you fall in behind the wolf through the forest you once thought would be your end. After travelling throug various locations, you pass a small stream, and round a corner, coming out into a large clearing.
You follow Mist into the clearing, wolves and cats alike scurrying around camp hard at work. As soon as Mist entered the clearing though, they all paused in their work and looked at her, trying to find out weather you are friend or foe. A few pups scurry up to you, and begin to ask you questions.
"Who are you?"
"Where did you come from?"
"Why do you smell so weird?"
Hope shushes them, bounding ahead as Mist hops up onto a stump nearby,her fur shimmering.
"Welcome to the pack," She says, "We are peaceful, strong and harmonious above all else." Hope leaps onto the stump next to Mist. She flashes you a smile, lifting her head to speak.
"Welcome to your new home."
We are the canines of the forest; cunning, intelligent, favored by Forest Dog. We are sometimes peaceful and harmonious, but other times we're merciless, brutal, feared, and deadly. We are the line between good and evil.
We have a paw in both worlds, but we are one.

~Do not post more than three messages in a row on the page, it fills up the page and is spamming~
~Powerplaying in any way will not be tolerated unless the opponent is powerplaying. All of the following is considered powerplaying: Dodging (Rare exceptions), healing automatically, superpowers, 'missing', acting strong when wounded severely, killing anything other than prey automatically, NN (Not very seriously considered powerplay), etc.~
~We will NOT under any circumstances tolerate Latin, advanced vocabulary or anatomy in roleplay. The only exception is apex. Words like "ebony", etc. are allowed but not preferred.~
~Double-Grouping with a different OC is allowed, but not preferred.~
~Goofy behavior when roleplay is not allowed. It's very irritating for the leader for to have to remind someone over and over to be serious.~
~No killing packmates without the Alpha or Beta's command.~
~Be realistic. No acting like a human or leashed dog. Pink pelts (excluding hot pink) are only accepted for hairless animals. Other very unrealistic pelts are only animals that have been dyed.~
~No naming an OC Lucifer, Satan, Jehovah, Jesus, or any other religious names, as this is unrealistic and disrespectful towards religions.~
~Members must not follow any religions other than the Spirit Dogs and The Great Wolf.~
~Though two-segmented names are allowed, sharpclaw kits in the Pack cannot have names such as 'Bluekit' or 'Stormkit'-they must have pup names. They can only have clan names when it is time for their Naming Ceremony, and they cannot change it after that. So if they call themselves 'Leafpaw', etc., that will be their name forever no matter their age. The same goes for Tribal names.~
~Packmates must eat according to rank. Mother-Dogs and very young Pups may sometimes eat first.~
~Major drama is prohibited, thought minor drama is fine. Please no all-the-time getting hurt by something imaginary, poisonous gas, random wolf attacks, etc.~
~Be fairly active on Animal Jam.~
~No pestering or asking for a higher rank.~

~NO slang or swearing will be tolerated.~
~If you need to say something outside of roleplay, border it like roleplay. EXs: (I have to go.) (( I have to go.))~

When hunters need to leave their kill to hunt for more, two Scout Dogs must guard it. They also must help to fight off any problems during hunts. (xunlimited)

Q- How many OCs can I have
A- Two, plus one pup
Q- Can I add myself to the page and member count?
A- Yes, if you are accepted.
Q - Can I be Alpha, Beta, Third Dog or a Lead Rank?
A - Alpha and Beta are currently taken. There is very little if any chance of getting either rank. Alpha and Beta will choose the Third Dog and it's also unlikely. To become a Lead of your rank, you have to prove yourself. That means be the best of your rank! You can challenge any higher rank under the Forest Law.
Q - Since you have no Elders, what happens to members when they get old?
A - They'll probably be made Omega or a Mother-Dog. If they're still strong, they could keep their old ranks. It'd be very rare for us to abandon or kill them.
Q - How come there's no "Desired Rank" section in the Joining Form?
A - We don't let new members choose their rank like a normal Pack or cat clan would. Respect is worked for, members can't just decide they want to have authority. New adult members start out as Patrol Dogs, and new pup members start as Pups, obviously.
Q - Why don't you allow normal roleplay items?
A - Firstly, it's unrealistic. The usual response is, "The items aren't on the OC. Just the avatar." If so, then what's the point of wearing the items anyways? Why are there dress codes? If the items are just on the avatar, groups should allow their members to wear whatever they like, no matter how silly or irrelevant! Also, if we allowed swords, bows, etc., less experienced members may use them in roleplay. (Yes, this has happened before.) There are some rare exceptions to our dress code, but it is usually very strict.
Q - You have no Trainees or Apprentices, but don't older pups have to train?
A - They do train when they are fairly older, but there is no rank for this. There are brief training sessions for all Pack members, even adults.
Q - Why do you have such cruel punishments?
A - Alpha should be feared and respected, and there needs to be major discipline. There are often rude comments about our harsh punishments, but we have good reasons for all of them and there are a lot of packs who do the same. Note that warnings are given many times before harsh punishments are even considered.
Q - Is the pack based off Survivors?
A - Yes, but obviously more strict and different in ways.
Q - Can there be a second Alpha or Beta, a male and female?
A - No. The Alpha and Beta are usually of opposite genders, traditionally mates.
Q - Do you have backup Betas?
A - No, we used to have this rank but it was abolished due to being unneeded and too unlike Survivors. The Third Dog is basically the same as a backup Beta.
Q - How do non-canines participate in The Great Howl?
A - They can yowl or try their best to howl.
Q - Can I recruit?
A - Yes, but only the Alpha and Beta can accept new members. Please only present realistic roleplayers to Alpha and inform them of the dress code.
We're not too picky about avatars, but it is preferred that Arctic Wolves are used for canines, Snow Leopards for felines, and Polar Bears for bears.
