Welcome to the Thistle Kingdom

Salsola is a large pack located in the Drifter Bay territory of 'Souls. Its territory claim includes the expanse of Cape Chignecto Park, Isle Haute and Millstone Village, and stretches north into Amherst and the Halcyon Mountain. Luperci of any type are welcome to join, though Salsola is highly matriarchal and has a strict cultural code. Its fanatical obsession with hierarchy and bureaucratic games makes Salsola an intimidating pack for newcomers.

The Family (as its general populace is known) is tight-knit, valuing mateship, political rank and secrecy. While Salsola's social structure appears to be uniform and cohesive and there is a general air of public camaraderie, not everything is as it seems - backstabbing, secretive trysts and betrayal are commonplace as a sinister undercurrent to the public persona of a collaborative community. Salsola has an abundance of subtle cultural codes and signals that form an unspoken language. Those who find themselves breaking any of the many strict conventions of the pack too frequently will find themselves ousted from the pack altogether, or in much direr predicaments...

Salsola is extremely strict with regards to IC hierarchy; All canines are expected to show proper submission and dominance over other members, depending on where they are situated in the ranks. Those who rebel risk being punished or usurped. Salsola respects its own above all else, and those who contribute to the well-being of the pack are held in especially high regard, finding themselves favored by the leadership and members alike.

One is unlikely to find Salsolan members outside of their claimed lands very often, due to their habit of maintaining intense secrecy; Few Salsolans will identify themselves as such beyond the thistle borders.

SCENT: Pine. Salty, marshy. Strongly female. Wolfish, with weaker hints of coyote and dog.

  • Common 'cover' scents: Bayberry, earth, wild mint, sage, wood-smoke.

ARCHETYPES:

  • Welcome: Loyalists/devotees, assassins/spies, sly/secretive folk, liars, slaves, occultists/witches, merchants/craftsmen
  • Unwelcome: Gentle/innately kind folk, heroes, wildlings/loner types, vigilantes, artists, non-luperci

Salsola was designed as a pack for the more experienced roleplayers on the boards. While we will certainly welcome any eager player, newcomers to roleplay might find the pack rules difficult to follow, and the in-character cultural stipulations hard to understand. If you are interested in joining Salsola, please ensure that you have read through all relevant Joining Information provided on this wiki - If you have any questions with the more complex content, just ask our friendly leaders!


1.  History

Salsola was formed out of two canines' desire for power and privacy. By using intimidation, trade, and other means, Salsola has established itself as a formidable (if immoral and nefarious) pack among those in the North. In more recent years, Salsola has seen a tremendous growth in both population and presence. Skilled hunters, traders, entertainers and craftsmakers all have found their niches in the pack, owing to the extreme specialization of the Family's ranks. Since the conclusion of the Boreas Conflict, Salsola has taken a special interest in the breeding, training, and trading of horses. Due to its nature, Salsola has seen various conflicts large and small since its inception, and violence regularly finds the Family.

Active Packs

Mistfell Vale

Salsola and Mistfell Vale have had little formal interaction, though are aware of each other.
  • Saga D'Angelo, who was born in Salsola's Outpost, abandoned the Family to help form this new pack. Her brothers would later join her.

Casa di Cavalieri

Violence between Salsolan members and Cavaliers has occurred regularly in the past. The two groups remain at odds with one another -- involvement with this group is discouraged.
  • Though Casa initially sought peace with Salsola, in 2013 then-leader Jazper challenged Salvia as to Salsola's slave practices. She chased him off.
  • Sebastian Auditore infiltrated the pack on behalf of CdC. He fled the pack with two slaves.
  • Aedan de Valence infiltrated CdC seeking information regarding his son.
  • Salsola members Hyacinth Silevue, Boss Salvia Eternity and her mate, Stannis de le Poer captured Alistair Callow-Knight in February 2016. He was held for ransom in exchange for two of CdC's horses.

4.  Trivia

  • Using titles, ranks, epithets or aliases for members is common-place; ex: Salvia as "The Queen", "Boss", or "Tigress".
  • Salsola's creed words are the latin old-tongue Familia Fortis Elegit, which translate to "Family Chose The Strong".
  • Thistle grows rampantly on pack's territory, especially where it is purposefully cultivated at the borders. Salsola also derives its name from thistle - genus Salsola.
  • The pack sigil and IC/OOC icon is The Hand of Eris, appropriated by the black witch Eris Eternity at Salsola's founding. She initially discovered it in an old human-made book of astrology.
