How to join

  • Hello there fellow Warrior fan! Welcome to The Driftwood Warriors! You obviously clicked on this journal to learn more about how to join our little community! Well then, continue reading please! This journal will tell you everything you need to know!
  • Before we start, please be aware that naming a character is similar to how characters in the Warrior cat series are named. Which means:
    Puppy = Pup at the end of the name (age 0 to 6 months)
    Apprentice = Paw (age six months till approx. 1 year)
    Warrior = Can be anything that is known to dogs. [Belly/Pelt/Fire/Rock/Sand/Bird/Prey/Antler ect.]
    Alpha = Star [Only the Alpha's have Star behind their name.}

    If you are having trouble coming up with a name, here is a list of prefixes and suffixes appropriate for this group: fav.me/dbnxpr9 .
  • With this newfound knowledge, lets get started on filling out all the information about your character! Keep in mind, without a character your application to the group will be declined! So do make one.

    ***Please check the master name list to see if your name is available! fav.me/d9k4nc6 ***

    If you want to claim a banned spot, be sure to check the list to ensure it is open!

MapleSyruq's avatar
I have a quick question!
When joining do we have to join with a certain rank of dog or can we join with any rank (warrior apprentice pup)
Nashi-Hime's avatar
Warrior or apprentice only.
MapleSyruq's avatar
Great! Thank you so much!!!
Guess I'll have to get started on my character for the next opening!^^
SpeedyFoxDraws's avatar
You must join as a apprentice or warrior UNLESS you manage to adopt a pup through a pup tryout, however I strongly advise you make another character before trying out for a pup as beign a pup will be pretty boring.
MapleSyruq's avatar
Ok cool. Thank you so much!!
Chcara's avatar
I understand none of this ;~;

besides the naming that's clear
SpeedyFoxDraws's avatar

Oh, just a question with the relationship thing?? what do we put ?? because is it people in the role play or?
also people have so much cool ref sheets and i suck at them o.o is there like a ref thing or a way to do it??
SpeedyFoxDraws's avatar
If you mean the relationship key most people have on their applications nearly everyone uses the same relationship key and its for expressing how your character feels about other characters it has interected with either through their past or through roleplays. 

For refs you just draw them onto the application, we do not accept bases but we do accept commissioned work, say you cant draw so you have an artist draw your dog, you can use that art for your application but they have to be on the application sheets which are found in our gallery under "Featured" 
BookedSailor's avatar
Okay! and i did mean the background template! so thanks! :D
Blue-Beryl's avatar
And if you mean the application background of your drawing, you can find the background for each clan in our "featured" folder of our gallery. You can simply open it on your device and draw your dog on top of it! Just make sure to pick the right background :)

Q1: What you put on a dog's relationships is what they think of the dogs they have interacted with through their life.

AhhhH glad I caught the group while it was open. I've been following for a while. ;;
thinking about submitting an application tonight.
MoonDoodles7's avatar
I have a couple questions about joining...
So it says to send a note. So if we are joining for the first time we just send a note? Or do we have to use the join group button? 
Also do we have to submit the application to our sta.sh or can we just upload it like normal? I prefer not to use sta.sh because I'm stuck on mobile and its harder to use on mobile.
Nashi-Hime's avatar
Either is fine. Please submit the application normally (not through stash.)
