Welcome to Their Dark Eden. Where nightmares become reality, where there is no escape from the darkness. The world has been changed for the worse, and the only "safe" haven is a place under ground called Eden. Eden is where the canines hide to escape from the infection and to those poor victims to which the infection has claimed. It's a dark world, and it's only going to get darker.
Applications must be completed fully in order to be accepted into the group.
* This group contains offensive themes, discrimination, violence, abuse, sexual situations, and a variety of blood, gore and explicit language, and drug use. If you're easily offended this group is not for you. *
Seasons & Weather Things are getting cooler as summer slowly sacrifices itself to Autumn. The mornings can be chilly, although it feels quite warm during the daylight hours. There is a sustainable source of food in Eden, although the rabbits have finished breeding; however, in the wastes food is becoming scarcer as more prey takes to their holes to protect themselves from the cooling air. There are frequent drizzles of rain that help the growth of autumnal plants.

1/2/2015 - Character Slot Changes & Why We Don't Allow Non-Binary Terms
On Character Slots Changes
Okay so we've heard and we shall speak! The mod-force is here to give you the general run down and explanation of a few changes we are now putting into affect. The first is being that of the Character Slots System, as we have noticed that yes it is rather difficult to save skelts on this system, while not as HARD as other group systems we are going to relent and change it to something a bit more simpler, that still encourages not killing off characters like they're in a butcher shop. So heres the general idea:
Your total lifetime skelts, (currently owning and spent combined.) will now let you "unlock" character slots. ie 500 lifetime skelts to unlock one slot etc and up and up as following the Currency System Journal. This means you only have to pay for character slots ONCE basically, in a cumulative form. However, if you kill off a character we are going to ask you to pay 500 skelts of your currently owned currency to allow you to kill off a character / reuse that slot.
The Great Non-Binary / I'm Offended Debate Answers
Now onto an even bigger issue, it appears most people don't seem to understand WHY we aren't allow "tumblr pronouns" in character bios, ie otherkin, cishet, genderfluid, demiboy, demisexual etc. So I am going to make this perfectly clear:
We are NOT saying you can't have a dog that identifies as Trans. We are just saying you have to put your dog's physical gender in/on their app as well as easily recognisable sexuality! We aren't saying this because we are horrible oppressive and evil dictators. We are saying this because these terms are both not logical in the tDE universe, can and will confuse those not versed in such terms, AND simply because your dog isn't going to have time to worry about if they think they were a squirrel in their past life, or identify as needing to call themselves itself, themself because they think he/she is "offensive." We are also saying this because it is terribly rude to the actual plight of transgendered / transexual individuals, as the blatant overuse of these terms can make their plight see pretentious in the eyes of the more ignorant members of society. So this is how mods are answering the trans / pronoun argument that has been pushed at moderators by non members:
tDE is a post apocalyptic group, the world would be knocked back by YEARS in advancement if such a disaster occurred, creating a hostile environment, and with such setbacks:
- Yes, your dog is going to be discriminated against by other dogs. - They could be discriminated against in gender, breed, orientation etc. - That doesn't mean you can't have a character that is gay or trans. - You can totally have a gay or trans character! - It's impossible for your dog to dress like a male / female of obv reasons. - But you CAN'T put your dog's gender down as Other - And CAN'T start up the super specific tumblr labels stuff - This is an ADULT rp group, we're going to have themes that offend you.
Thats all we've got! Falc & Team Out! If you have any questions feel free to comment on this journal!
2/1/2015 - Group Announcements & Moderator Promotions!
First of all, welcome and congratulations to all who made it in! We welcome you to what we hope serves as a wonderful and friendly roleplay community for you for years to come. We also offer thanks to those members still waiting on their final application checks- your patience is sincerely appreciated by all of tDE staff- and certainly no events will be started until we finish working through all remaining applications.
However we have even more important news to share. One of our long serving moderators has finally been promoted to the high status of Council Member for their hard work and dedication to tDE, and without them our application backlog would be much larger than it is now because falc is a dumb fuck who isn't online often enough. So therefore we welcome to the upper echelons of the admin task force: MokiHunter! Who having been with tDE since the beginning and having been both an active member of the tDe community, and a member who has effected group events- Will certainly make a fine edition to the small task force that is in charge of not only accepting applications, writing journals but also enforcing group rules.
- Congratulations Moki & Members!
14/12/2014 - GROUP OPENING!
ATTENTION!! Fear not the slowness of which we are going through applications, tis the holidays and I'm sure I'm not the only mod with Christmas Festivities coming out their wahzoo. ;3 If you submit an application before the deadline, then assume that your safe! However- that being said- this doesn't mean you won't be going through the Application Review with the moderators. You will not be accepted until everything is in order on your application.
Anywho, Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas to all! -Sarge
- The skelt trackers folder perms should be fixed now! Feel free to submit them to the group. If it still isn't working, please let us know.
The countdown has ended and we are now OPEN! For members and new joinees, old and new! You have two weeks to send in your apps, get reviews and make final touches! So don't be late kids! Get in before you have to wait till February!
For rejoining members: Everyone who was part of the group before the revamp will get 500 skelts with the additional 20 for joining. However, with this, we need to bring some relatively unfortunate news - all skelts from before the opening are now void unless you have a log from them detailing your earnings and deductions. We do apologise for this, but we hope that the 520 skelts will make you guys happier!
As for ex-members: We wish to welcome you back to tDE. The moderator staff thanks you not only for your patience, but your willingness to stick with us as we try to improve your experience at tDE. You have all grown and improved so much since when you fist joined us, and it brings a tear to our founder's little baby eyes!
We hope you continue to improve, enjoy tDE, and feel apart of our family and community, as we continue to grow and occasionally get yelled at by falc! and make new friends within our lovely group, as we hope to spend many years roleplaying with you all. Enjoy the re-opening!
- The Admin Team
6/12/2014 - Updates Complete & Grace Week!
Yay a new update wow! Okay so all of tDE's updates are now done, which means everything is up to date! So you now have all journal information available to you... and you also get a 'grace period' week. Just so you guys can get your applications all set up, maybe even send them in to get reviewed if you want some help!
So get cracking guys! tDE opens for applications December 13th! We're all extremely excited here at the admin team for the reopening and to see all of your wonderful new applications, so don't be afraid to ask questions! We don't bite!
30/11/2014 - Reopening Delays!
Due to unfortunate circumstances we have delayed the reopening of the group by a few days, rescheduling for tDE to reopen on December 5th at the latest. As Falconicide is sick, and forced to instead work much slower on journals while the other moderators try to rush to get all remaining coding and graphic pieces finished.
We're sorry for the delay and hope to see you all ready for the pre-opening week of December 5th - December 11th. When everything will be up to date, so you can finally re-read the UTD (Up To Date) journals and fix up your applications, or even get pre opening reviews!
There also seems to be a problem with the journal layout when opening the journal from your inbox and nowhere else (*angry shouting*), a simple refresh should fix it, though.
