Hey guys, so this isn't a major thing and it isn't really a PSA or anything like that, but I've kind of noticed that sometimes in my own busyness I tend to forget that my characters are actively partaking in the worlds they were created in and because of that, they can occasionally fall off the face of the earth or appear to not care about other characters... and I've noticed that with other people that happens as well... and I kind of wanted to give some tips / tricks on how to deal with things if you happen to have your character "fall out" of their world for a bit.

First, stop frantically trying to fix your characters past and shoving your nose into plots that have already happened. This will only cause headaches for you and the people you're working with... and can sometimes make your character (and even yourself) look like a total ass. You can add tidbits of what has happened from your character's perspective and maybe try to talk things out with the other people that have already completed the plot... but don't go and try changing everything. It's a bad idea and can often times leave a sour taste in the mouth of the person you're working with... Especially if it feels like you're character is trying to flip flop in the stories written about them...

The hardest thing to admit is that over time when you're busy, you're missing out on other things that are happening with other characters... which means that your own character has lost out on these opportunities as well.

The best way to fix this gap that has happened is to find a way for your character and the other character to reconnect or for other things to happen in order for your character to get back into the action. For instance, let's say that after Rattie and I both stopped talking about Taariq and Theron when they were apprentices and I decided to get Taariq back in on Theron's life... I send Rat a message going "Hey, I saw this picture and these interactions... well I think Taariq would have done this..."

That's the wrong way to go about it. You don't want to start intercepting other people's plots and telling them that your character would act a certain way over everything. Instead, what we ended up agreeing was that the two characters reconnected once Reel disappeared, since both cats had gotten busy with their own training and were unable to see each other in that time.

It's better to start looking to the future and start there instead of fretting over the past... Because, if you fret over the past too much, you'll find that you're missing out on other better opportunities for your character now.

Don't try twisting everything to ensure that your character looks like a good guy... we all have flaws and that should be embraced in RP... or at the very least, understood by you as the owner of your character.

Because Justice won't stop pestering me now that she's stateside again...

Anyway... You heard right guys! Tempestas managed to get Dehlia pregnant again (much to sugarra's anger) so yeah! I should probably just cut to the chase. They're having 4 cubs, two boys and two girls.

All four cubs are currently up for adoption and as an added bonus, Justice and I are curious to see if anybody wants to make identical twins in the litter. If you do, make sure that you mark it on your tryout or find a buddy to collab it out with you |D

This means that if you're looking to start out in the group with a friend and you wanted your characters to be related, you can totally collaborate with them for a spot in this litter as well. You don't even need to be in EBC. This is a free for all and we want to see what you have for us. You'll also have siblings already in the group!

tryout information:


:bulletyellow: If you already have a Temp/Dehl cub, obviously you're not allowed to tryout again.

:bulletyellow: Anybody can join in on this, but the character has to be used in EBC and should stay in lightning empire. We want to ensure nobody has to deal with too much heartbreak in this family.

:bulletyellow: Please make sure to fill out at least 3 traits and a simple paragraph about your cub for their history. Only fully completed applications will be accepted.

:bulletyellow: If you happen to lose interest in dA or plan on leaving the site, please let us know so that when you do leave we can redistribute the cub to a new home. Communicate your intentions to us so that we are not caught off guard if you suddenly disappear ;n;

Nothing sucks more than having a cub die due to somebody losing interest or just not caring any more

:bulletyellow: Be creative and have fun

:new: WINNERS :new:


It was super hard to figure out the winners, but we finally did so. I was supposed to post it up yesterday, but due to the superbowl and how busy I was with friends that didn't happen. You can submit  your babies via note (or join request for our two non-ebc members) to the group as soon as you want.

Sarcastic, Awesome, we both loved your tryouts and it was super hard choosing who should get the spots, but in the end we wanted to give the people who had yet to get a lightning cat into the group. Your two cubs are super duper adorable and we really hope that you're not upset. If you do enjoy your cubbies or really do want a lightning cub, feel free to message Asante-Sana to talk over some possible adopted babies for Roxanne :eyes:

Could I maybe make a meme for EBC? Like the ones they make for Warriors?

It'd be best to note the group about it, since I'm not the only person who has a say on matters like these in EBC ^^

Hey! So
I have a question about EBC that I wasnt able to find in the journals (Probably didnt look in the right ones but sighhhh)

When does the whole story start? I know its currently 46 BC, but I couldnt find the beginning year.

This is for a Latin project, btw! I'm using EBC as a way to recreate/rewrite the history of Rome based on real events :3
