I have a confession - I truly never had a wolf pack in Petz 3 (in fact, until a few months ago, I didn't even OWN Petz 3, but I didn't have one Petz II or Petz 4 either). Truth is, I've never done any type of roleplaying, but I'm interested in trying it. What I saw in Duke's Group was what I think would be considered roleplaying where you basically make up a story about your pet, and make a blog-type updates about them. They can go on playdates with other petz and that sort of thing by sending them to other petz players. Is that something I could start on the roleplaying board here? Or would there be a better place to do that? Or is this site not really appropriate for that at all?
For example, I'm wanting to adopt one specific pair of pets which I will raise without using PetzA at all (no sliders, no aging up, no forced breeding, etc.). I'd like to make up a whole story about them - where they came from, how I got them, adventures they take, etc. I'd also like to use them in the challenges and link to the threads where those are posted too.
I actually LOVE playing petz like this, and one of the things that draws me to horses in petz is all of the roleplaying involved. I think the best place to post something like this would be Petz Updates. You can make your first post announcing your petz and project on Show Off, and then direct everyone to a continuation thread in Petz Updates.
You can also post something like this on your home board, but I think homes tend to be more private than public. So far, anyway!
ooh, this is good reference for me. i actually have a wolf pack i'm "forming" (assigning ranks and what not, haha) so it's nice to know where this sort of stuff would fit if i get around to posting it here
i assume... real roleplaying would go in the roleplaying section? like roleplaying humanoid characters between two people? animal/petz roleplaying not very big and most people don't seem to like the "talking animals" aspect of it since that's technically unrealistic. but roleplaying humanoid characters doesn't really fit with this forum which would most likely be why there isn't a section? of course i'm not rafa, but that's my guess.
wolf packs, in petz, are just... groups of wolves. you have some, you assign them a position within the pack (alpha male, alpha female, etc) and just roleplay/write a story based on that. it's not actually a mechanic within the game, it's all fabricated however you'd like it to be i've never heard of them being specific to petz 3 though.
The roleplaying section, I guess, is supposed to be for roleplays that involve other people. So people can play as their petz with other people playing as their petz, or one player can be the handler and the other can play the pet, etc. Althoughhhhh I suppose people can roleplay non animal/non petz things too, if they really want to. I just have fond memories roleplaying petz with other people! But that was approx. 10048400230 years ago.
But solo roleplaying, the kind of thing you guys are talking about, probably fits best in Petz Updates.
The wolf pack in P3 comment was a joke I swear I just had 30 different packs when I was tiny baby idiot playing P3 haha
Ha ha, I probably only didn't because we didn't have internet forever, and when we finally got it we had dial-up internet and only one phone line so couldn't be on long and it took forever to do anything, so I wasn't super active in the petz community until later.
I had a wolf pack. Just because I loved wolves and the manen wolf file hahah. Before we had internet I had a dane "pack" with a skinny dali as the rogue and a sheepdog as the doctor lady.
I just had like 8 wolfish petz, named them all, put my 2 faves as alpha male and female then just ranked the others randomly, with one of my faves being a rogue wolf, as I called him. Then I just made up stories, wrote dialogue, while I played. Just being a random child. The good ol' days! hahaha.

turmoil: I'm dying to play petz 5 again, but i can not for the life of me get it to run. Double clicking the icon does nothing? Is there anywhere specific i could get help for this?
