This is not your casual fluffy animal rpg. We're not all about cutesy animals or dreamy unicorns. Mark of the Wild is a dark fantasy taking place on a fictional world where the power of the Old Gods has made it's resting place. A portal discovered in the Black Sea by the Roman Navy has lured them into a strange new world where they have erected their culture and established their reign, seeking new treasures, conquest, and even expansion.

Filled with ancient legends, mysteries, and dark lore, the world of Verusa awaits you, where the legends of the Old Gods exist, where their breath is as one with your own heartbeat, and where their power is yours to access when the need arises. -Where the men here are not what they seem, and home to an ancient civilization that could be deemed as a God through mortal eyes. Verusa is a world where the land's men and beasts - through the acts of corruption and imbalance, have become one.

World Events
In the event that there is an important plot-related thread, it will be listed here so anyone and everyone can read up on it.
Active Scenarios

High Stakes: Not-Active High Stakes is a game dynamic that puts all characters within the site at risk. In most cases, this follows a natural catastrophe such as a disaster or human event, such as "Hunting Season". .

Open Season: Not-Active When Open Season is declared, human characters are authorized to hunt the specified species that will be stated in the Side Bar under 'Open Season'. Out-of-season hunting is declared as poaching, and will result in your human character paying a visit to the Aspect, quite possibly to their detriment...

Famine: Not Active There is a shortage of food in a given area and that characters are expected to seek out the location of prey. At the same time, characters are hindered on their abilities due to this shortage of food and will take a malnutrition debuff that will affect their abilities and their stats.

 The Arena

The Arena is the perfect place for two members to have a social in-character fight without the worry of character death. Being separate from the main story, anything that happens in these threads will hold no status on your characters. This area of the board is also a great way to increase your character's stats and even earn those valuable Rage Points.

As a reminder, Rage Points are the digital currency used on the site that can be redeemed for character upgrades and level progression. Due to this being separate from the story, the Arena has it's own unique rules, please take a moment to follow them:

No Restrictions - The Arena is a place where any character, no matter it's native climate, can participate in a fight with another character. A Lion vs a Polar Bear is possible here!

Payout - The Rage Point Payout is the following:

Win - 1,700 - 5,000 Rage Points will be given to the winning character (Survivor); Loose 900 Rage Points will be given to the loosing character (Death)

No Permanent Death - In the Arena, there is no such thing as Death. As this board is separate from the story, and therefore, holds no true influence on your characters. In-game events hold no jurisdiction here and shouldn't be regarded as such. Events such as "extreme weather conditions, poaching, ect." should also not be considered as a intervening event in the threads that take place here. With that out of the way, it is important to note that if your character dies here, that it should not be considered as a death. However, if your character does loose a fight in one of these boards, you will gain a single point in "C/F's Lost" in your mini-profile. It is the same way if you win a fight here, you will gain an additional point in "C/F's Won".

Please Keep it In-Thread As there is no true consequence to participating in these threads, moderators and such will not be actively monitoring these fights unless it is requested by the thread participants - you will need to submit a ticket and request an Admin or Game Master to actively monitor the thread. The only time when monitoring is guaranteed is when it will come time for us to judge the fight and determine the awards and payout rates.

What A Better Way to Introduce Yourself! - What's a better way to introduce yourself to the game other then making them squeal for mercy at your own feet?! - What's a better way to learn the fight system other than to do it yourself without consequence to your characters for when they begin to enter the story!? This is the best way to learn how to fight and become a pro at it before you even start to make your way through the various stories we have set up!

Please remember our Club Fang Rules which can be viewed in the Guidebook, under PVP Dynamics. Refer to our Base Rates and skill points which can be accessed by using the User Interface just above this text.

Have fun!

Akela
568
I am soo nervous lol.
Everything seemed so surreal. Akela still couldn't believe that she had met the very aspect that had been the drive behind her purpose in life. She had been in awe when she had laid eyes on the black panther and even now her voice still rang clear in her head. Akela knew that she would never let her down and would do almost anything to prove her worth to the fellow feline. So when Leviathen had mentioned the tasks of her totem Akela had wasted no time in accepting the challenge. Akela would rise to any challenge, she was a warrior and wouldn't back down in the slightest bit. She was actually eager and giddy to start proving her worth to the female and would literally do any damn thing that the jaguar asked. She was no long lost puppy that would follow her around but she however would do whatever tasks were required of her. It was why she was actually where she was today. Her paws padded against the jungle floor, the ground moist beneath her. There always seemed to be a dense fog that hung in the air around her, mostly because there was so much heat that just lingered. Her tail twitched behind her, her auds flicking atop her perfectly chiseled skull as she strode forward- her body weaving in and out of the trees and even leaping over fallen logs. She was still growing accustomed to her body but slowly but surely she was learning her strengths and weaknesses. Today however would definitely be testing her new found skills. Leviathen had told her to make her way towards the heart of the jungle, though Akela couldn't help but feel the unease that skirted through her system.

Her instincts told her that humans lingered near here, she could smell them in the stagnant air around her. A lump arose in her throat but she swallowed it. What was she thinking? She could not show an ounce of fear! Fear caused weakness and weakness caused you to make mistakes. She supposed she still felt as though she were human and not a wild cat. Her face quirked into a smirk as she pulled to a halt, her head raised high as her blue eyes narrowed. She glanced around her then; everything was quiet..too quiet. She couldn't even hear the birds squawking in the trees overhead which meant that something was entirely wrong here. Her tail twitched once more and slowly her claws unsheathed. The fur rose along her spine out of pure distrust towards the situation. Leviathen would only have her come out here to prove herself- the question was who would be meeting her out here? Another animal or a human? Akela wasn't sure how she would react to a human. She herself was a human once before and the idea of attacking a human in this body was completely unethical. She had once been a fierce warrior but now things were completely different. Her body was different. She wasn't sure how to transfer those skills over into this form. She let a sharp growl emanate from her as she stared into the trees and bushes nearest to her. Better get on with the show then. She thought to herself while counting the seconds that passed. If this was truly a test from Leviathen she knew that it wouldn't be an easy one.

"Erehna put her heart into her hands
and Vorkyl did it too
They loved each other
in the forest gardens
and whispered 'Til death do us do'...
"
The trees were beautiful. The sounds of the parrots were beautiful. The night, as evening set and the light descended until the space between all the trees were black, was... Beautiful.
The voice that sang between the trees could not perhaps have been described as 'beautiful', but it certainly fit in with the atmosphere of everything else and as such perhaps could be called so by association. It was young, and loud, and if it missed a note here and there then it didn't really matter, for it was the voice of one who clearly liked the song and liked to sing and didn't really mind how he sounded as long as people were listening. And you couldn't hate it for not really knowing the tune; it was a voice that just wanted to sing and be heard because it loved noise and sound.
The parrots and the monkeys went quiet, and the voice started up again. It smiled. It rang through the trees and down to the bushes. It listened even as it sang, maybe waiting for an audience or an accompaniment or just a distraction. But it didn't seek any of those things. It didn't need to. It was quite contented as it was, really.
"Vorkyl and Erehna loved between the trees
with none around but bees and parrots
But what they didn't know,
in all their lovely show:
The forest had gone quite quiet...
"
Down below, on the forest floor, something moved. It was fluid and pale; in the gloom, it shone like a spirit, a spectre of misty things that haunted abandoned temples and took the breath from dying men's lips. Its coat was painted in the fluid way of the forest, so that darkness played across that glowing white - it was only really visible when it stepped through light patches.
Up in the darkness, the voice didn't hesitate in its sweet, playful song. It looked over and seemed to grow a little louder, perhaps as if the singer had looked down from above. But the origin of the voice seemed to change, shifting with the gentle rustle of leaves in a suddenly quiet clearing. The insects which whirred stilled; the monkeys had ceased their howling long ago. Nothing even moved, besides the gentle swaying leaves; it was as if life had fled, blown away in the gentle pulling breeze that tugged branches and made them scratch against each other so misleadingly. It was even darker now. The light had seeped away with the noise and the living things until everything was in shades of twisting grey and silver.
On the forest floor, the beast stopped. When it ceased moving, it seemed to fade entirely into the background of the place. A low growl rumbled out, an Alto rhythm to the Tenor base singing sweetly in the trees above.
"Vorkyl and Erehna loved all through the night
on moss and leaves to make a wedding bed...
"
Cazs looked down from his perch above the tiger, and smiled. His lips caught one of the silver spears of light, and when they peeled back yellow fangs glinted. His hands were empty, holding his balance on the branch. Then, suddenly, his body was tilting forward as his head slipped onto its side.
The voice slipped into a minor key.
"But Vorkyl was insane
so when she screamed his name
he stuck his knife into her head...
"

The giggle dropped through the air as fast as gravity, for that was the rate at which Cazs fell through the air.
And miraculously, both hands now had knives in them.
