The ice that forged an age old kingdom for gigantic beasts is breaking. Unable to cope with nature’s turbulent upheavals, they perish. Only their bones lie in memory.
But their deaths breed opportunity.
The denizens of The Dire Straits rise up to claim the world as theirs, submerging themselves into a torrent of drama and uncertainty. They all have different desires—to love, to fight, to thrive, to build, to rule—but one instinct drives them above all: to survive.
In Dire Straits (PG-13) is a highly active animal RP forum taking place in the fictional region, “The Dire Straits”, loosely based on the tail end of the ice age. The forum operates in an "open world" setting where members are free to choose from a plethora of different RP environments and even create, run, and grow their own packs.
While most members prefer to make canine and big cat characters, any animal existing after 10,000 BC is available for creation. We do not allow magic, but under the umbrella of "semi-realistic" have paw dexterity, some forum created species, and no restrictions on coat colors or markings. Sparklewolf your heart out!
IDS has been running strong since 2005 and boasts an active hub of artists and writers of all skill levels. As a community that values member contribution and creativity, we encourage world development and new concepts. We have no post length requirements, and activity is only monitored on an individual pack basis; overall we have a lenient outlook that allows members to RP at their own pace.
Come check us out and see why we've been around for 10 years. We can't wait to meet you!
