I RP over at KaVMUCK ([link]) and offered draw people's meerkat chars for the simple reason that I love drawing meerkats. ^_^ Caelestis was the first person to ask, so here's her character. It was originally a full-body picture, but the anatomy was way, way off and I didn't have the patience to fix it... I hope she likes it, anyway.

I tried to combine the style of the reference pic she showed me with a bit of Disney-style; hope she doesn't mind. ^_^;

BTW, that be honey in that there gourd. x_x

Pwee! It's so cute!

I think I'll start roe-playing there could be so fun!

I love the Lion King... I never even thought about role-play in that universe.

Haha.. funny thing, the Lion King is what started my obsession with roleplaying. XD I think it was in 94 or 95... I was on AOL and people were roleplaying on the message boards. At the tender age of 11 (or 12..?), I created a meerkat named Auna and the rest is history. XD Since then, I've always been involved in some sort of roleplaying.

...I'm trolling the forums, ja?

...and I'm looking for....where the rules and such-n-such are....because I'm a furomwhore and RP in forum form most often.

...Having trouble...finding things...

...What's Telnet?

*wikipedias telnet*

...oh. Now I'm only *mostly* confused instead of *totally* confused.

Bloody hell, I need help! *waves a white flag of defeat* for the Role-play...I was first inspired around the tender age of nine, by my own obsession with Anne McCaffery's Pern novels.

Dragons's an' such.

Oh... I hadn't even thought of mentioning the fact that it's, well, different than most people are used to. XD The roleplay takes place on a MUCK (also known as a MUD [link]) which, in my opinion, is a lot more... I'm not sure what the word I'm looking for is... fast-paced, fun, interactive... than a typical forum RP.

What I suggest doing is downloading a telnet client (I like MUSHclient, personally [link]). I don't have the newest version, but I think it's the same... You go to File > New World and then put in the world (MUCK) details, in this case address [link] and port 2008. This particular MUCK is still in baby phase, so the opening isn't all that impressive, but once you're connected, you type 'connect guest guest' (meaning username guest, password guest). Once you're there, you can ask all the questions you want by typing 'new _(insert question here)_' (without the 's and _s of course XD) and a help staffer on duty will be more than happy to help you out! You can also type 'help' to get a list of commands and everything.

Hope that helps!

Geh! what do I download?

....I have...a MAC!

*scrabbles about like a frightened hamster*

Oh, and about coloring limitations... I know they allow some variations (I've seen two white lions, so far), but it has to be approved by a staff member beforehand. I think they want to keep the number to a minimum.
MicaSilverwind's avatar
Makes perfect sense.

Can't have a great lot of emo black lions romaing about...I mean, everyone wants to stick out among the crowd, and being funny-colored is the easiest way to do it.

It's actually not that bad once you get used to it... All you really need to know are the basic roleplaying commands and general roleplaying etiquette. ^_~

The basic commands are 'pose (insert action here)' (ex: 'pose sits down' would come up as 'Rhea sits down,' my character's name being Rhea)... If you happen to come on at the same time I am, I'd be more than happy to help you! I'm usually only on later at night, though (say starting around 8pm pacific).

Here are a list of Mac clients are here: [link]

My time paying may be limited....I have college, work, boyfriend, World of Warcraft...

...not to mention my non-school artwork.

I'm glad to have you as a helper/come-to-with-questions person!

Sounds complicated 0.0

I hope I can figure it out!

...I...I'm trying to think what sort of character I want to be...maybe a cheetah?

Cheetahs are nifty, and they're not pack-aminals, so I could be all alonified without too mny issues.

do you know the limitations on coloration? I'm an photoshop fiend, so I might wanna make a creepy albino cheetah. I don't have to, of course,'s good to know limitations.
