Sister Arpg (Hunter's Woods)

"The valley is an ancient place, where kings and queens have ruled for centuries, undisturbed. A massive range of desert, forest, jungle, and savannah mixed in a deep gorge that mankind finds unreachable, leaving the wild to its own devices. The rulers of these jungles have lived in harmony for many years, but trouble and disdain is brewing among them and the peace that once bonded the few prides, has faded. Prides have splintered, and rogues are more frequent than ever. It even seems as if lions have arrived from outside of the valley, strangers to this land.

Will your pride rise to power, or fall to the dangers of a perilous world?"


Rules
Basic Rules:
-Your account must be at least 2 months old to participate **Added 1/10 following some concerns, does not affect already-posted forms.
-You must start with a founder, and level to obtain more. Founders/prides must be kept on a thread or a cs-appropriate website.
-You may own as many as you want, but they are restricted to your pride's level. Each level up will earn you two spaces for additional lions for your pride, see level up thread for details
-There can be multiple males in your pride (to your discretion.) There is no limit on how many you might have or ratio of male to female.
-Your founder may be a queen/king/any gender, they do not have to be male.
-Your founder will NOT be readopted if you don't level up, but you won't be able to adopt more until you reach level 1
-Breedings will be allowed between lions of any sexes/genders (I want to be flexible to people's personal developments)
-You may NOT breed lions for valley of kings outside of the official nursery, they may interact with other characters but your pride itself should only be made up of lions from within the arpg to avoid confusion.
-Theft or harassment wont be tolerated, Neither will guilt tripping or begging.
-If you are banned for whatever reason, you will be asked to move your designs to new lines and asked not to use their artwork from the arpg
-We will never revoke/take away designs under banning unless they are stolen/not yours to begin with
-Please be respectful towards fellow members and staff

Trade/sale/ownership rules:
-Lions/prides may NOT be co-owned.
-You can trade them for other designs within the valley, trade them for art/writing, trade them for other characters, or sell them for CS pets/C$ ONLY. They may not be sold for DA points or USD, or other game currencies. Founders may NOT be sold period (Only traded) Ownership changes must be recorded on the level up/archive thread via the form to be official.
-You must own a lion for at least a month before trading/selling for cs things. Gifting or readopting can be done at any time.

Writing/development rules:
-You are NOT required to adhere to any set format or to the canon for the prides (Further than having a leader/founder) . You are perfectly welcome to create your own story to suit your world. The prompts provided should be flexible enough to allow most variations.
-To clarify; the founder refers to the first lion who discovered/claimed the territory within the lore of your pride, literally- the founder of the pride
It's up to you if your founder is your prides king/queen and they can be replaced as a leader, but no one else can magically have started the pride so it's not something that can be "fought over". It's also the lion your pride is attached to in the archive as your first lion
-You may develop your prides with other users prides/form borders/ect as desired
-You MAY develop your lions into multiple prides. You are still restricted by the level requirement as to how many you can own, but you can divvy them up into separate prides at your discretion.
-Incestual or adult-cub relationships are NOT allowed
-You can give them magical abilities/ect, but you cannot add physical edits/changes. You are welcome to give them accessories.
-You may set up your prides however you want in terms of rankings/positions within it.
-You CANT have a new founder for your pride (your first lion will always be the founder) but you can have them be replaced canonically as king/queen/ect of the pride by another lion. You can shift founder rights to another lion in your pride by killing off the original founder, or transferring it via the option on the thread.
-You CAN use them as anthros/humans if you want
-There is no restriction on lion age, since you're welcome to use magic/ect in terms of writing, they can live forever or age as average lions do; its up to you.
-you can add your own accessories in stories/your own artwork of the lions. There is an official prompt to have them added to the official ref by the artists

Design Rules:
-Will be natural colored, though due to the isolation of the valley, different/nonnatural patterns are available (like stripes..leopard spots...ect); as lions are quite plain on their own. They just can't be like, neon colors or the like. They also can't have 'manmade' patterns (perfect hearts...stars...ect)
-Other variations are considered rare and are on special case basis
-Manes are not restricted to male or female, though are more common on male.

Seeking Archivist/Moderators

Founders
**Users may only ever obtain one founder as a custom**
If you adopt a lion as your founder, you are ineligible for a starter founder, so do keep this in mind. The only way you could get a founder custom if you've adopted one is to give up your previous founder and then put in a ticket, and effectively start over. The tradeoff is that if you adopt a founder there isn't a wait and you know exactly what you're getting and your founder could have edits/unique traits. Founder customs are basic and cannot have edits beyond scars.

-Your account must be at least 2 months old to claim a founder **Added 1/10 following some concerns, does not affect already-posted forms.
-Founders MUST BE NATURAL COLORED and NATURAL MARKINGS. (So no hearts,stars,galaxy, or hyper-neon/colorful palettes.) I do allow some suspension of disbelief in terms of natural-adjacent colors and markings that are definitely not native to lions (Since they are plain) but please keep in mind if you give me stuff that's totally not natural I will work with it to make it adhere to the requirements (Dulling colors,ect) (Eg, if you ask for a blue lion...you'll get like, blue grey, or something)
-Each member may have ONE founder. If you gift or trade your founder, you may not have another one, and you'd need to adopt a lion to get another one.
-Post the form on the main thread, an artist will claim when available. Do not repost the founder form unless at least 4 pages have passed without being claimed.
-Lioden lions are now not permitted, due to cs rules/staff preference against discussing the site.
-Form must be complete when posting, no posting wips.
-Founders may not be copied over from other designs/ect, they can be inspired by designs YOU OWN ONLY if you are the designer or you have explicit permission from the designer. And they will not be exact copies, only loosely referenced.

Mark, they're so pretty

I'll remember Brightheart, when I see a scar on someone's face.
I will think of Scourge, when someone's teased for being tiny.
I'll remember Mothwing, when I find it hard to believe.
I'll remember Midnight, whenever I'm at sea.
I'll remember Leafpool, when I must follow my heart.
I'll remember Brambleclaw, when I must prove myself.
I'll remember Spottedleaf, when I'm suffering from bad health.
I'll remember Tigerstar, if I choose the path that's wrong.
I'll remember Cloudtail, when a kitten catches their first prey.
I'll remember Bluestar, whenever I must choose.
I'll remember Crowfeather, when the one I love, I loose.
I'll remember Firestar, when my loyalty's put to the test.
I promise to remember all these cats, for the rest of my life.
