    • adherence to pNPC canon content, relations and plot involvement is required.

    • adotpable must join SP within 2 weeks of being picked up if not joining OOC'ly.

  • Pre-Adoption Changes: generally very lax and open to broader changes than Strict or Moderate characters; however, discussion is still required!

Pre-Adoption Changes

Post-Adoption Changes

  • You are free to discuss with us about any alterations you may have in mind for the adoptable, however, please do not get offended if we turn these down. We may have a set idea in mind for the adoptable, and may be hard pressed to make changes in regards to certain details about them. We are more than willing to work with you, however, please be understandable and respectful!
  • Generally, we are more open to small changes in the character’s appearance (i.e. a scar, maybe a minor alteration in hue, a marking) or minor details in their history or personality.
  • For characters that are not very developed (i.e. never played), we are, obviously, more open to bigger changes to them! :3

We're pretty easy for post-adoption changes, as we fully understand that characters grow and change over time! However, we would ask that you:


  • Do not heavily alter…
    • …their personality (i.e. a quiet, meek character shouldn’t become loud and feisty!)
    • …their appearance (i.e. don’t sever off a leg, please!)
  • Do not kill them

Of course, we are willing to work with you if you talk to us about these drastic changes beforehand! Doing any of the previously listed without trying to contact us first may result in forfeiture of your adoptable :(

Re-Adoption

Your Stuff

Please understand that these adoptables, even the Relaxed ones, are our creations and our babies, and, as such, we would like to see them played to their fullest. we may reclaim (or re-adopt) an adoptable if you have:


  • Broken a specific term of the adoption contract in regards to a character (ex. Wolf is supposed to join/stay in Pack A, but you make him join Pack B)
  • Extensive inadequate play (unrealistic deviation from pre-set character history or personality, etc.) and/or have radically changed the character from its original design
  • Dropped the adoptable…
    • …for a long period of time (6+ months since character was dropped)
    • …with only brief play (0 - 6 months, 0 - 100 posts, etc.)
    • …with inadequate play (unfinished threads and plots, errors in interpreting pre-set character history or personality, etc.)
  • Disappeared from or otherwise permanently departed 'Souls
  • Been permanently banned from 'Souls
  • Fail to actually Join ‘Souls with the adoptable within the requested deadline

We are happy to work with you if there are issues, and would actually prefer it if you kept us in the loop in regards to any possible activity issues you may have with the character (ex. lack of muse, need to temporarily aNPC for such and such reason, etc.) or picking them up. Communication is key, and, so long as you keep us informed and aware of what’s generally going on, we're willing to help you out!

  • All baubles (art, titles, icons, etc.) originally given with the adoptable return with the character.
  • Gift art and gift graphics are typically considered reclaimable with the adoptable.
  • Commissioned and bought art is considered property of the commissioner. However, we may request to use this art should you go inactive and/or are unreachable.
  • Titles and Icons...
    • ... earned via game points, contests, etc. are considered property of the player who earned them; however, you must request removal/transfer in a timely manner after dropping the adoptable or they become property of the adoptable.
    • ... purchased via the 'Souls store are considered property of the player who purchased them and will be removed upon reclaiming the adoptable.
