[ Astral ] is a combination of many different areas of roleplaying. We are a shifter roleplay, but with a twist. Our Lycanthropes have two forms, Anthro ( two-legged ) and then the regular Lupine ( four-legged ) form. A virus did not effect our canines, since the existence of their species they have always been naturally able to shift between their two forms with ease. Humans have never existed in the universe of Astral, our Lycanthropes being the ' human ' variant on this particular planet. Religions have always dominated the canines of Astral and many of the population find it absolutely detrimental to follow a religion of some sort of the other, there being no shortage of different ones to choose from. Some canines however choose not to practice any sort of religion however and quite often find themselves on the outside looking in - so to speak. Civil war has always been eminent as a universe can only be so diverse before different cultures, religions, and packs clash.
That is what [ Astral ] is all about. To each their own. You have character freedom, will they be a saint or a sinner? You have the option to run your own pack with it's own unique religion or run someone else's into the ground. What will you choose?
