Two little wolves in my Keep have decided to create a Family and they need YOUR help. (They’re very indecisive.) To resolve this issue, they’ve decided to have a little contest, divided into three categories: Name, Story, and Family Crest (Art). Please see the posts below for more information.

Contest Run Date
January 25, 2018 - February 28, 2018

Rules
1. All entries must be original work, where applicable.
2. Users are allowed to enter as many times as they would like.
3. (Names Only) If more than one user suggests the same name, only the first user to suggest it will be entered. I will PM you to let you know if you’ve suggested the same name as someone else.
4. Users are allowed to win more than one prize.
5. For categories with fewer than 10 entries or 5 entrants, contest run date will be extended to March 31, 2018.
6. If fewer than 7 entries after March 31, category of contest will be canceled. Only the categories that miss this requirement will be affected.
7. Winners may not ask for release date pets, where applicable.
8. There is no restriction on theme, but please be appropriate.
9. Winning entries will transfer ownership to me; this is to avoid trouble later down the road. (Sorry.) Credit will still be given. (Winners will be contacted regarding crediting after the contest ends.)
10. I reserve the right to add more rules if I deem it necessary. If a new rule were to impact current entrants, impacted entrants will be manually informed via PM. (I will do everything I possibly can to avoid this.)

We currently lack names, as you can see. Our caretaker can’t seem to make up her mind, at all! Could you help us out? We need three names total: one for our family, and one for my companion and I. To help our Keeper out, could you please use the form below for listing names? Thanks! And remember: you can suggest as many as you want, with each suggestion getting its’ own entry. Good luck!
PS. We prefer names with meaning, or purpose. Feel free to share this for bonus points.
Really, good luck. I’m going to take a nap now!



Form
Code: Select all
[b]Family Name:[/b]
[b]Mother Progenitor:[/b]
[b]Father Progenitor:[/b]

Family Crest Contest
    1 Winner
    Prize: 5 Shards

The wolves have decided to leave this last bit to me. There isn’t much additional to share here. They’re looking for a fitting crest. Since the name has not yet been decided, the winner will have to be willing to add it in after the contest ends.

Family Name: Briarwood
Mother Progenitor: Sharina
Father Progenitor:. Blaine

DESCRIPTION:

The first wolf hybrid family, read below to see how it all began....a forbidden love from long ago.



Sharina and Blaine longed to spend their lives together. As they grew, their childhood friendship grew to something more. Something forbidden. You see, the wolf packs believed their packs needed to remain separate.
Black with black. Spotted with spotted. White with white.

The two pack Alphas didn't approve their desire to become a mated pair, as both of their parents felt the lines needed to remain pure. Blaine was destined to become the new Alpha, and Sharina's father planned to mate her off to the wolf who succeeded him. The young wolves grew up knowing they were fated to be separated.

One day while playing, Blaine was caught in a trap. Desperate to help him, Sharina dared approach a young Mage traveling through the area. Although the Mage was afraid, he couldn't stand by and let the evil trappers find the young wolf. He freed the wolf, and with a lick of thanks, watched as the pair ran off. The Mage was sure he'd never see the pair again.

Years passed, and Sharina's father found her a mate. With no choice if he wanted to keep his love, Blaine asked Sharina to run away with him. She readily agreed.

It took months of running, and hiding, avoiding members of their packs, but the young couple found their way to a wooded area many miles from their old forest home.

The new area was lush and full of wildlife. They knew they could raise their family there. As the wooded area was filled with briars, they named it Briarwood. They quickly discovered how to avoid the briars, but knew they would keep away most intruders. After all, who wanted a coat filled with prickly briars?

A kind Mage found them one day just before their first cub was born. In exchange for the right to collect nuts and berries safely in the area, the Mage agreed to magically disguise Briarwood so no harm would ever come to their family. It was Sharina who recognized the Mage as the one who had saved Blaine from the trap all those years ago. She never knew that the Mage remembered the pair very well, as rarely did he see two different colored wolves together.

Many years have passed now, but to this day, Briarwood and its inhabitants are well hidden from all but the descendants of the Mage.

Of course, the old prejudices in the packs are long over, and many new colors now roam together. The packs, sonde estate developer by the loss of Sharina and Blaine, decided love was the most important thing.

(More to come-maybe--can't word count on iPad very well)

*psst*
As long as you're reasonably close, I can be forgiving. Also, if you'd like, I can word count it for you. (You're currently at 422 words.)

Added entries to the necessary listings.

Family Name: A Royal Family
Mother Progenitor: Hera (Zeus's wife), Nut (The Egyptian goddess of the sky), Isis (The goddess of magic and Osiris's wife)
Father Progenitor: Loki (the trickster god), Zeus (One of the more important Greek gods), Geb (The Egyptian god of the land), Osiris (The Egyptian god of the sun, when he died he became the god of the underworld)

I love ancient lore!
I tried to think of different husbands and wifes from different lore. I'm not sure it turned out that well, but I tried!
I may try to think of more later.
Also- I can try to draw a Family Crest when a name is chosen.
