A big thanks to The Adorable Panda for letting me use her thread and jobs for a base.
Rejam named the tribe ♥
Tribe founders: Snailshell (aka Spiral) & Ancient Song (aka Hymn)
Spiral and Hymn believe that Kimeti who don't look normal are special. It is their belief that the MotherFather made such Kimeti different for a reason. The same holds true for otherkin. They feel that She would not have called these others back to the swamp if they were not special.
It is their wish to gather together as many unusual kimeti, as well as otherkin, as possible. Believing such kin were chosen for a reason, they hope gathering them will shed some light on why.
August 1, 2015 update: Removed, changed and added information that's long over due. Spiral & Hymn settled the tribe in the area around Sorr's garden, with the garden being just off center of the tribe's territory. It boarders the central tribe gathering area. Also added some jobs, changed some up a bit too.
This tribe is for Kimeti who are "deformed" or "mutated" in some way, or who are mutilated (ie missing a leg, ear, etc). As well as for all otherkin, regardless of deformities.
Kimeti can join if they are not deformed/mutated/mutilated, but only if they are the child of a member. This child must either be born after the parent joins, or have been born just before and followed the parent ((i.e. foal or colt/filly)). Adults with a close bond to a joining parent/sibling, but who do not qualify to join or do not want to join, will be considered visitors or unofficial members.
Visitors/Unofficial members are always welcome, but will he expected to pull their weight.
Any Kin born into the tribe will be considered an official member by default. Even if said Kin choose to leave they will be welcomed back if they ever choose to return. This does not mean a Kin born to the tribe must stay with it, they are free to roam or have homes and simply join the tribe when they meet up.
After much discussion, Spiral and Hymn have decided to settle the tribe in the area around Sorrel's garden. They won't restrict tribe memebers from wandering, however, they just thought it best to finally have a territory.
Kin in the tribe may join other tribes should they wish. Joining another tribe does not mean they need to leave this tribe.
Ancient Song will not always be with the tribe. She'll pop up randomly, and leave anywhere from a few days to a few months later.
The main area of their territory is just big enough to hold the whole tribe. The territory itself is large enough to hold the while tribe several times over. Spiral and Hymn tend to travel through the territory, checking on kin and making sure boundaries are well marked.
With the change of having a set territory comes change in how the tribe gathers. Several times a season Spiral and Hymn gather the tribe together, they share news, play, feast, and so on. After that it's up to each kin where they go, and if they go alone or with a group. These gatherings are not mandatory, but are encouraged.
Both Snailshell and Ancient Song are Alpha rank. Beta rank is reserved for their life-mates/mates. Vetiver will remain Beta as long as he wishes.
Spiral sees a difference between a mate and a life-mate. Mates are a couple who haven't taken that step to life-mates, for whatever reason.
Ranks and jobs are a very fluid thing and may change, or not, when the tribe is all gathered or split up.
Added 02/20/10: I have the right to bend these rules as I see fit. Especially if your Kin and Snailshell and/or Ancient Song have had past RPies and I believe the Kin in question would fit into the tribe well.
