Standard Policy

Be respectful of the admins, members, the rules & TOS. Negative drama, harassment, or hostility on-site will not be tolerated. 18 years is the minimum age requirement for members in view of heavy subject matter & promotion of an adult member base. RP experience is preferable & standard etiquette is practiced: i.e. no forms of god-modding or meta-gaming, observing post order & minimum site activity, submitting a LOA when necessary, gaining permission to dispense death & major trauma, & so forth. We cater to writers with adult responsibilities & obligations, therefore minimum individual account activity is monthly (30 days).

Quality Grade

This is not your typical "real-life" RP. This is a true-crime site based on conventional realism. Dark themes & subject matter may be used frequently. As a general topic warning - read at your own risk. Literacy & quality is stressed. Writers are expected to have a general grasp of, or be able to lightly research, material they plan to write about so stories stay sensible. Choices & actions may reflect their weight in consequences. Sexually explicit content must be hosted off-site.


There is no minimum word count, no activity check-ins, no character limit, & no main cast or story. There are four mandatory templates: starter post, reply post, shipper post, & the biography. These do not require paragraph break commands & the first three are located in the "pinned info" tab. Avatars are a standard 250 wide by 400 high - non animated. Signatures appear on profile pages only. Claim ages may be adjusted by 5 years.

Our Statement

Our small & reliable board caters to dependable writers equally invested in conventional drama. We recognize our site will not be a fit for all & we celebrate this difference. Our goal is to provide a devoted forum for long-term, quality plot development. The board highlights on crime & law enforcement but welcomes the vast diversity of major city life. For ease of starting plots, we helpfully suggest beginning with a cast that can be tied into current characters.
The Cruelest Animal motif was inspired off the True Detective series, Lt. Joe Kenda's Homicide Hunter, & Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners. The site skin & templates have been coded exclusively for Cruelest Animal by Hardy @ Wecode for Chrome & Safari browsers. Individual character stories are the creative property of their respective writers.
No drama, spam, or ads we are guest friendly
