12 Article V - General Provisions
Lone wolves paradoxically united as a pack and a pyramid of hermit crabs led by a platypus decided to make a pact with the pack.
Article 1 - There Will Be Pings
We’re going to make sure we talk to each other on RMBs, forums, and on Discord. We’ll ping each other accordingly.
Article 2 - Crab Packs and Wolf Pyramids
We’re going to party together a few times a year to celebrate our cultures. There will be crabs in packs and wolves in pyramids. We’ll both feast on Vara’s onion creations.
Article 3 - Protecting Our Dens
We promise not to encroach on each other’s territory and that we won’t assist anyone in doing so.
Updating can be messy. We agree that if a crab finds a lone wolf united with another group in someone else’s territory, we won’t break our bestie bond.
Article 4 - No Crying Wolf, Big Game Hunting
We promise not to cry wolf or make trouble. If either group discovers sensitive information that poses a threat, we will share such info with each other in order to protect the pact between our packs.
We will, however, do some big game hunting together when we can. If one is not game for that hunt, it’s OK.
Article 5 - The General Laws of the Pack
This pact takes effect when our proper alphas say so. It can evolve over time like crabs do, so we’ll be open to amending the treaty and will update it together.
We’ll talk before we decide to become dispersers. We prefer to keep the bond together as best as we can.
However, if it is time to cut ties, we will inform each other of such intent by talking with the proper alpha or beta wolves or crabs.
