I’ll embrace the arms of night
Kin Name: Surrender to the Mystery
Position: Skywatcher
Background: Surrender and his sister believe the MotherFather speaks through the dance of her stars. Finding this tribe of likeminded kin felt like finding home. It wasn't a hard decision for them to choose to stay. Surrender has chosen to train as a skywatcher to further understand the language of the MotherFather.

I’ll embrace the arms of night
Kin Name: As Gentle as Stars
Position: Forager
Background: Gentle didn't come with a set purpose or skillset she could apply but helping kin forage for edible plantlife and preparing meals suits her soul just fine.

I’ll embrace the arms of night
Kin Name: Sky Teller
Position: Skywatcher
Background: Like his name, Sky spends most of his time watching the stars and telling stories of their origin, whether to himself, his familiars, or anyone who cares to listen. In fact, sometimes he's so engrossed in his stories that he doesn't notice if people start to doze off as he continues to ramble...

My tongue is filled with starlight…
Kin Name: Wrath of Stars
Preference List: bald girl, turquoise green buck, choker white and purple buck (far right)
Constellation Story: The kin of old were a little wild, reckless, and perhaps a little wasteful. In their march across the swamp, desert, seas, and mountains, they might have left a trail of destruction in their wake. For those overseeing the trend, they grew agitated, and soon the whisperings grew louder until action was taken. With a mighty yell, the sky broke and stars rained down upon the swamp and the errant kin. As a reminder, the Wrath of Stars creation hangs in the sky still.

My tongue is filled with starlight…
Kin Name:Sky Point
Preference List: bald girl, turquoise green buck, choker white and purple buck (far right)
Constellation Story: The mountains and skies were more wild back then before time eroded their stiff peaks. A kin of incredible stamina and prowess climbed the highest summit and when they got there, they were able to touch their nose to the sky. To commemorate such a momentous feat of skill and climbing mastery, the MotherFather created that memory in the sky and thus the Sky Point constellation was born.

Image

My tongue is filled with starlight…
Kin Name: Falling out of Existence
Preference List:bald girl, turquoise green buck, choker white and purple buck (far right)
Constellation Story: With lashes long enough to wink at the moon, the Great Furbody constellation sees all, and in its benevolence, grants the swamp useful boons. This constellation travels the sky and shows up randomly. It often hides behind night clouds only to come into view brieflybefore seemingly winking out of existence. It's considered an omen of changes to come if a kin spies it in the sky.

I’ll embrace the arms of night
Kin Name: Stargarden
Position: Friend of the Night
Background: He's been around as long as the tribe has existed, wandering around in the night. He still doesn't understand the nuisances of a tribe but he's known to lounge as a fairy dragon on kin, or float around as a sparkling jellyfish.

I’ll embrace the arms of night
Kin Name: Connect the Stars
Position: Skywatcher
Background: Connect the Stars is one of Stargarden's children, and she would follow her father around. This led her to the tribe, a place that appreciates the constellations as much as her.

My tongue is filled with starlight…
Kin Name: A Little Bit of Starlight
Preference List: purple buck, teal buck, purple doe
Constellation Story: "The Motherfather," he said, "often weeps for us here, down in the swamp. Sometimes there isn't much that can be done; sometimes we must make our own choices and may the consequences be as they may. When it rains, that is the Motherfather sharing our sorrow. And when it's clear out, and the sky can be seen across the mountains and the rivers and the lakes, sometimes we look up and we can see the Motherfather's tear and we know then that that is a tear of happiness, not of sadness. When you are alone, and you feel as though you can never be happy again, just know that the Motherfather cries of joy that we simply exist."

The opening event is now CLOSED to new entries to contests, although of course you’re welcome to enter kin to the tribe at any time. THANK YOU SO MUCH I have LOVED seeing all the entries and new additions to the tribe, I really have my work cut out for me in the judged contests.

HUGE Thank you to EVERYONE who entered and who have submitted kin to the tribe!

Thank you EVERYONE for participating, so much, I LOVED running this event and I hope you all enjoyed taking part! Thank you so much to Starrydance, Kuropeco and AMItotic who generously allowed me to use offspring from our breedings in this event! I’d like to extend a particular public thanks to Kuro for helping me out with organisation and graphics, this wouldn’t have been nearly as smooth without your incredibly generous assistance.

All kin are part of clutches and will be certed as soon as possible!
