Raise & Chase


Raise & Chase
Last edited 2021-03-15 11:32:42 /

This is a thread (& will maybe later be a clan) dedicated to helping one another raise wolves to adulthood in order to chase them away, making the pool of chased wolves better and giving others the chance to encounter them as Newly Befriended Wolves in Explore.

What Is A Chased wolf?

A Chased wolf is any adult wolf a user has chased away from their territory. After your lead wolf hits level 10, you have a chance to encounter these chased wolves when befriending wolves in explore. Chased wolves are marked by a purple shooting star icon.

This gives a chance to get a wolves with unique markings, eyes, and bases in explore. Great for players who don't have a lot of currency, or for players who avoid inbreeding, as chased wolves have no heritage.

Why Does There Need To Be A Clan For This?

Because territory, food, and amusement items are scarce, and raising a pup all the way to adulthood takes all three of those, not a ton of people are chasing nice wolves as adults, opting to sell or else chase when they're born if they don't plan to keep them. This clan will help share food, toys, and space to keep those pups and adols alive until they age up!

What Kind of Wolves Should I Chase?

The nicer the wolf, the nicer it is to chase! Basic guidelines to follow are:

What not to chase:

  • A common-based wolf with 0-3 markings is not a great candidate for chasing, as a similar wolf could be found as a regular NBW. (Just ask some other R&C members: most of us have more pups hanging around then is good for us, and we'd be happy to give one to you to raise instead!)
  • Stats, mutations, and carrier status are wiped on chasing, and so should not influence your choice to R&C a pup.
  • You cannot find your own chased wolf in explore, and many wolves are either not entered into the chase pool, or deleted the chased pool after people fail to befriend them. Do not chase a wolf if you couldn't bear to have it gone for good! 

What to chase:

  • Breed-only bases [like howlite and quartz] make a wolf a better candidate.
  • Tier II bases [like chert and siqoq] make a wolf a better candidate.
  • Breed-only Tier II bases [like rime and melchior] make a wolf a better candidate.
  • Tier III or Special bases make a wolf a better candidate.
  • More marks [4+] make a wolf a better candidate.
  • Higher tier [6-8] marks [like Auburns, merles, or smokes] make a wolf a better candidate.
  • Unusual eyes [like glass, violet, or heterochromia] make a wolf a better candidate.

Wolves with one or more of the above qualities are good candidates! [For more info on what bases are breed-only or what markings are in what tiers, see the grouse house genetics guide]

How Can I Help?

You can either raise a pup yourself, take in a pup to raise, or give items to help others raise pups!

So far there are no clans, so just pop a comment in this thread if you're willing to help! Say what you can contribute (food, territory slots, amusement items, wolves, medicine)and what you need. If you have a pup you're planning to raise & chase, feel free to post a picture of it as well!

Here's a simple form for introducing yourself, but don't feel like you have to follow it!

Rules & Recommendations

-Don't use this thread to get free items! If you're found taking items without chasing wolves or otherwise contributing, you'll be excluded in future.

-Once you chase a wolf, send a screenshot (or post a wardrobe link) to say you did it and get some cred! (a scoreboard may be added in the future, but the original was too unwieldy to maintain)

-It's a good idea to name chased wolves something specific RIGHT BEFORE you chase them, so you can search that term in your user log & see how many wolves you've chased! (eg, R&C is a good candidate but just "chase" isn't, because you'll also turn up "chase" results from hunting and explore! You should only name them this right before chasing, or you'll also get results for all the times you fed or played with that wolf)

Announcements: What's Next For R&C?

Forgive me for getting a little sentimental, but I've been thinking about this clan lately, and I'd like to share my thoughts:

This clan has grown way beyond the tiny project I thought it would be when I started this thread which (while occasionally overwhelming) is awesome! Even when I'm away, there's almost always an R&C member around helping people out, answering questions, and chasing wolves. 

These members in my opinion have just as much claim to this clan as I do- maybe more! I am beyond grateful (and beyond confused) that so many cool people have decided to devote their time, energy, and resources just to do a nice thing for other people, with no real reward in return, and I think that's worth drawing some attention to-- that all of you are doing a nice (and sometimes tedious and difficult) thing for no other reason than to be kind.

I think that's awesome, and I'm very glad to have had even a small part in this. 

While I [Crickets] am not always super active here due to RL commitments (my is pretty crazy right now in particular), I really appreciate what all of you are doing to make R&C a bigger and better clan than I ever could have on my own. Thank you all!!

That said, I'd like to talk a little bit about what's next for Raise and Chase!

My goals for this clan are:

-To find a better way to promote the discord some of the members are running

-To get some nicer thread CSS and get us looking fancy

-To reinstate, even as a one-time thing, the scoreboard and chase prizes we had early on without it being unmanageable

-To hold a collab event with some other clans on WD (one of these is already tentatively in the works) to help us connect with the bigger wolvden community.

I can't promise that all or even any of these will happen, as I have IRL commitments and some of these things would take a lot of work and time, but I want to help make this clan a fun and interesting place to be a part of, so I'm working on these goals towards that end!

And finally:

Happy R&Cing everyone! We've chased tons and tons of wolves so far; let's make it even more!

Name: Selkie (she/her preferred, they/them is also fine!)

A bit about me: I'm 25 and living in California!  I'm pretty new to Wolvden but only because I'm a dweeb who forgot to sign up when registration opened.  I've pretty much got my pack established with my first set of "permanent" packmates, so I'd be down to raise some sacrifices c;  I don't really plan on breeding my own wolves much, but I'd be down to buy and chase wolves from the TC! 

I Have: Food, toys, plenty of time. 

I Need: More territory slots, hah.  I only bought enough to house exactly the number of permanent wolves I wanted, which is a whopping 8.  Should be able to start saving up to expand, though! 

Pup (if applicable): EDITING; the pup that I'd originally planned as a sacrifice was sold, so I've picked up a new pup with a lot of potential from the TC.  So the new first sacrifice -- a breed-only base (Tumbleweed) with Cream Inuit Unders and Cream Merle!  I think he's actually pretty gorgeous with his opacities nudged up to 100:

Hello to you both! Thanks for hopping in to say hi!

& That's a nice sacrifice, Selkie! It'd certainly make my day to grab a lilac in explore

I'll help!

Name: Auvry!

A bit about me: I'm 26, live with my bf and three cats, and I love them all :3

I Have: A spending problem XD (realistically, a few pups to start out and some good based wolves I'll be breeding in the future)

I Need: Moar territory, but that's not exactly giftable XD I will however accept critter carcasses and eggs >.>

Pup (if applicable): For the most part, my pups have split pretty evenly between 'Sell Worthy' and 'Not Worth Keeping... Alive', so essentially what I'm going to be doing is Raise/Chasing any sell-worthy pups that don't sell. I will try to keep a couple of open adult slots available for every age-up, and now that I'm in the groove with my pups I'll be focusing on RCing pups with at least 3 visible markings :)
