Dusky Woods Wolf Pack
This used to be one of the best Wolf RP sites I have ever seen. It was, in fact, the first I ever joined. It had a brilliant balance of males and females, and some fantastic story lines going on. However, it is now mostly dead, apart from a few loyal old members. The Alphas have not been there for months so, unfortunately, none of the information can be updated. It was once a great pack, but now has fallen into decay.
Black Willow Valley Wolf Pack
Black Willow Valley is possibly one of the most well-known wolf RP sites you will come across. It is well run, it has plenty to keep you occupied and it has some very good ideas, some of which I nicked for Burning Waters, i.e. the spirits idea. I love the way it is linked to Midnight Dreamers, although that has now closed down. Having said that, it is not that active, and doesn't seem to have that many members. Its not the kind of site where you can go on in the evening and find loads of other people there, but it is worth looking at. This is an elemental wolf pack, meaning you are allowed special powers and magic, and unusual appearances. It has recently undergone a BIG re-vamp, and is looking much better, although my original account along with many others was deleted. It can also be quite hard to get noticed by others, and making your own board when you're new doesn't really work.
Starry Night Wolf Pack
This site is owned by my good friend Starlight, or Promise as some people may know her. I love the layout- the backgrounds are much more different than those you find anywhere else and give the site a friendly look. Again, however, it can be hard to get anyone to take any notice of you. I no longer really RP there, but it is a good site. It is reasonably active, more active than the last two, definately, and it has loads of message boards. I also noticed that they have added two packs within the pack, which I thought was a bold step for an Avidgamers site, but it should be quite effective. Then again, maybe not, we shall just have to wait and see. I also have to say a special thank you to Starry Night, as all of the pictures here and at Burning Waters have been stolen from their photo gallery.
Aspros Thyella Wolf Pack
The Aspros Thyella is quite small, quite active but not one for those new to RP. Most things are spoken in rustic, and there is a lot of description in all the posts. I wouldn't say that this was an advanced RP site, but it comes close. At the moment I think there are about 22 members, as inactive members get deleted which I find a very good idea if you do not judge a site to be good only by the amount of members. The message boards are well balanced, and you get a real sense of being there. The wolves there are very friendly to newcomers, unlike the others, and as it is not very busy it is easier to have good conversations. I also love the backgrounds and the layout. Aspros Thyella hasn't got any pictures, but it has a very professional look to it. It is well worth just going for a look.
Night of the Wolf
This is the first bad review I have given. I left the pack because I hated it. There was no freedom- you were not allowed to make your own message boards, the RPers there, even the Alphas, were inexperienced and inactive, and the standard of posts was low. Another reason that I left was because the Alpha Pup, Kimo, threatened to get every single one of my wolf RP accounts, everywhere, deleted if I didn't RP with him over AIM, not caring about the fact that I had a lot to do at that time. I cannot stand blackmail, and so I left. Since then it has moved, but I do not see any changes for the better. Every single member has been deleted to get rid of the 'in-activeness' and the rules are patronising, rude and unnecessary. I advise you to keep clear of this one.
The Kingdom of the Wolf
On a happier note, this is not such a bad site. I don't really have any feelings to it one way or another, actually. It is not that active, but active enough. It is quite a good size, it is well laid out but there could be more to it. I don't RP here any more, for the above reason. I just don't care. The ranks are different to what you normally find, so that needs to be explained somewhere. There is a good story to the history of the pack, but no real story lines in the RP.
I like this one. As far as I can tell it is very active, and it has a lot to do on it. There are about 151 members, and LOADS of message boards, possibly too many. The only reason that I don't RP here any more is because I don't have time. There is also some tips on RPing, though, of course, none as good as this site. Heehee. Anyway, its a good pack. It is cleverly set out and well organised.
The Cosmic Wolves
Yes, maybe the name is a bit tacky, but I assure you that the site itself is definately not. This is not an ordinary, run-of-the-mill, goody-two-shoes wolf pack. This consists of two packs- good and evil- who fight against each other, kill each other, capture each other, torture each other and force-breed each other. This may not be one for the anti-violence people, but great for RPers who don't mind a bit of despair. It can take some time for you to be added to the member list, and for your posts to be replied to, but it is worth it. I myself love playing an evil wolf, instead of boring, forgiving old Vulcaleo all of the time. It is not a large pack, because inactive members are deleted, but there it is well set out and is definately more interesting to look at than avidgamers sites. See for yourself!
