Ahoy there!

First of all, I’d like to welcome you to the Feralys forums. Feralys has existed since 2004 as a developing pirate furry role play group and continues to grow in members, characters, storylines, and arts. Our senior members include Princess Rei, Eddy Dobhran, and Odin Canis.

If you’re curious or interested in Feralys, you may have a few general questions.

  • WHAT IS ROLEPLAYING/RP?
  • I’VE NEVER RP’ED BEFORE. WHAT DO I DO?
  • WHAT ARE THE RULES?
  • HOW DO I CREATE A CHARACTER?
  • WHERE CAN I JUMP IN?
  • ARE THERE ANY PIRATE POSITIONS OPEN?
  • CAN ANYONE JOIN THE REGULAR RP’S?
  • I DON’T SEE ANYTHING ABOUT PIRATES. WHAT DO I DO?

  • WHAT IS ROLEPLAYING/RP?

To make this easy, RP, or roleplaying, is simply back and forth actions between two or more players to create a scenario. There are different kinds of RP’s for different situations, but the RP type used here on Feralys are written in a storyline format. For example, actions such as *drinks glass of water* are not used in the RP, but rather “She took a drink of her water.” It’s very easy to catch the style.

  • I’VE NEVER RP’ED BEFORE. WHAT DO I DO?

The best thing to do is to read the previous¬†and current¬†chapter (called Episodes here on Feralys.) That way, you’ll have the most updated idea on how our RP is supposed to work, the characteristics of everyone on board, and you get a close feel of the action within the RP. Though the storyline isn’t always in perfect order, it’s important to keep in mind that the players depend on one another to move their characters and stories along. You may need to dedicate a day or two for reading before actually being able to jump into the story.

  • WHAT ARE THE RULES?

All rules are listed HERE, and may be updated and adjusted as time progresses. There are not very many, but it is still very important to follow them anyways.

  • HOW DO I CREATE A CHARACTER?

There is a CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT board specifically for characters, maps, islands, and Non Playable Characters. When you are developing your character, please use THIS thread to fill out the specific features of your character. It is required that you develop a character prior to joining.

  • WHERE CAN I JUMP IN?

Feralys has intervals where new members can conveniently introduce their characters. Every now and then, the ship will reach land, which are the best times anyone can jump in. Otherwise, we assume that the ship already runs with a number of people already on board. If you don’t want to wait for Feralys to hit shore, then you may assume your character as an existing sailor. If you’re still not sure, feel free to ask one of the senior members.

  • ARE THERE ANY PIRATE POSITIONS OPEN?

Currently, there are no specific positions open to new members. This does not mean you cannot join, but it means that your character will assume generic tasks on board. It’s always possible for characters to achieve higher positions on board, but it will need to be discussed with the Captain first to see if there can be arrangements.

  • I DON’T SEE ANYTHING ABOUT PIRATES. WHAT DO I DO?

If you just joined, and you don’t see anything about pirates, it’s because you haven’t taken the next step to inform one of the senior members that you’re interested in the Pirate RP. When you do so, you are manually granted special access to the Feralys boards.
