Wild Forest Holt is a freshly started Holt, where the elves are pureblooded and their steeds are not traditional. The Holt is located to the World of the Two Moons, but maybe in different reality and different time.
Wild Forest Holt is a forum-based game, that is open for player-created characters. Feel free to come and read what we have to offer for you!
You might want to re-read the rules and other requirements first, because I do not approve members before they have applied via e-mail first. All the information is in the Rules & Requirements-section.
This is the basic history, as read by Amos, the current memorykeeper.
"When the vessel of our ancestors, the High Ones, crashed to the mountainside, they were faced with the terrors of this hostile land. Some of the group did not manage the crash and got buried under the landslide the crash had caused. Others ran and escaped the mountainside, only to face the hostilities of the rainforest. Some of the forest survivors fell to the poisonous plants or insects, but luckily some of us learned quickly.
"To protect us, Drais -- our shapeshifter -- took a form of a giant lizard our group had named as dagger-feet. She learned their way, and hunted for us, eventually helping us to adapt and survive. She visited us daily, changing shapes between elf form and lizard form, but the changes grew more and more seldom, so did the visits. We realized she was losing her elf mind with the lizard identity, but we could not talk her to change back anymore. She left us, but also gave us a gift.
"Batch of eggs was found nearby the place we had started to call our home. The eggs were taken care of until they hatched with the baby lizards. Nurturing them and training them was proved to be easy, and our hunt leader Kalish noticed, it was possible to form a bond with these dagger-feet. Many were done and proven unbreakable. Kalish became our first proper chief, but his way of leading did not please everyone, despite the group thriving, finding more survivors and becoming a tribe. Recognitions happened and new ways to live were discovered. Our lizard steeds grew old and died, but multiplied as well. Sometimes new batches of eggs were found; many believed they were new gifts of Drais.
"Ageiah had never agreed to Kalish's leadership, after all, she had been the first-born daughter of Drais and she believed she had the right. Arguments got fierce between the two, muck and insulting names were tossed, when the unthinkable happened. The two Recognized each other and in the heat of the moment, the Recognition was consumated -- only for Ageiah to flee with a few followers afterwards. Some believe she went down the large river we had named the Water Way.
"Kalish lead us for some rain seasons more, but his heart was not in it. Eventually, he left as well, no one knows where. That was the time, when I asked the plantshapers to shape a hollow tunnel to the trunk of our Mother Tree, spiraling its way up. This was -- still is -- our path of memories, so that we won't forget. Leaders and chiefs changed, old ones made way to younger ones, generations came and went. We learned to live in the forest, and we still thrive."
We still have many tribal roles open!
the tribe needs counselors, crafters, fishers, gatherers, guards, hunters, tanner, tailor and storyteller, to name a few.
Also, there are still a lot of magic spots open.
This forum seems inactive, but we only need some new, active members. If you happen to be interested in a slightly different elf concept, come check us out.
This looks interesting! I think I'll drop you an e-mail about joining up, after I've read through the whole forum and the rules of course :)
It would be greatly appreciated, considering we have a few members, but one being a reader only, others being busy with RL and me being semi-active. x)
Great! I saw your e-mail and have signed up for the forum. Looking forward to getting to know the Holt better and weiting my elf's CIS!
I have activated the account! The system most likely has sent you an email about, but decided I also mention it here. So, your account has been activated, so you should now be able to log in and explore the rest of the forums, whatever there is to see. :)
I'm checking out the other elves' CISs and have started working on an elf of my own! I'll send it to you tonight, hopefully (well, tonight for me, I don't know what time zone you're in - it's 8.30pm for me right now).
Looking forward to it!
@Badger: I actually sent the CIS 12 hours ago, but it seems my e-mail ate it *muffled cursing* so now I have to re-write the whole thing because of course I wasn't smart enough to save the thing other than in that e-mail *grumble grumble*
Hopefully I'll have a new version to send you in an hour or so :/
@Sofia You can also post the CIS in the forums in the Approval Pending section so my mods can also take a look at it.
Due to the lack of possibilities to do custom layouts etc., the Wild Forest Holt moved under a new provider.
Here's the new link to the new forum -- it is still a tad ugly, but that will be changed soon (I hope): Wild Forest Holt
Shot you an email about applying :)
We still have some tribal positions open. We are needing some cooks, fishers, gatherers, hunters and trackers!
I'm thinking of applying, but I want to read more to get an idea of what I would get into.
I do not have any Holt expirience. Is that a problem? I have done other roleplaying forms, such as AD&D and email/chat roleplaying.
Having no Holt experience is not a problem, considering you are experienced on other ways of roleplay.
Sadly, guests cannot read the threads we have of actual roleplay, so you can create a reader account, even if you don't have an actual character idea yet.
Our memorykeeper Amos got adopted, but we are still looking for new tribemembers!
Especially fisher elves, cooks and trackers!
Our memorykeeper Amos returned to the Adoption Pool. It's okay; he is not lonely, as I made a bundle of new adoptables to keep him company.
Come check out the new adoptables!
Adoptables have been kept pretty general, so that there is as much room to edit as possible for the adopter.
We have launched our first actual event, called the Great Hunt -- there will also be a celebration afterwards!
Still many tribal positions open, many adoptables open, so come check us out!
Wild Forest Holt is on a temporary hiatus due to the admin facing a lot of stuff at the very moment. People are still welcome to check us out -- the admin controlled things just will have to wait until July or so.
The holt is currently facing summer vacation of sorts, but people are still welcome to have a look at our place and discuss joining!
Sadly, Wild Forest Holt has ceased to exist, due to the admin's lack of energy to run the Holt.
Awww sorry to here that :'( I hope the elves can find home in new Holts.
