Welcome to the Watership Down RP! The world in Watership Down was created long ago by the god Frith, who represents the sun. Among the animals of that time was El-ahrairah, the prince of all rabbits. Eventually, the rabbits multiplied significantly, eating all of the food in the world. In response to this, Frith called a meeting of all the animals in the world, giving the animals a gift, made some of the animals predators with a desire to hunt and kill the rabbits. These animals became the elil, the thousand enemies of the rabbits. When El-ahrairah realizes what happened, he berates Frith for condemning his people to lives of fear. When Frith asks whether El-ahrairah still wants his gift, El-ahrairah angrily scoffs at him, telling him to give the blessing to his bottom. Frith bestows upon the rabbits several blessings: tails, longer ears and legs, as well as great cunning to be able escape and deceive their enemies. Frith declares to El-ahrairah (now known as the "Prince with a Thousand Enemies") that all the world will be the enemy of the rabbits; while many would seek to kill them, the rabbits could survive by their wits and quickness. As long as they were cunning and full of tricks, the rabbits would never be destroyed.

Things you should know:
-The Owsla, a rank of rabbit, consists of officers, chiefs and captains. They are over two years of age and are devoted to chief rabbit and his or her mate. A story-teller or a seer may also be a part of the ranks. Basically, Owsla rabbits have the ranks of Garden Raiders, Soldiers, Officers, and maybe story-tellers and seers.
-In the book, chief rabbits are only male but it is different here. Chief rabbits have complete control over the warren and have the suffix -rah at the end of their name.
- Owsla have more power than other rabbits, getting the best dens and food.
-Frifth's Eve is a holiday much like Christmas, celebrated on or near the winter solstice.
-Outlanders are rabbits who aren't the Owsla, they live outside of the main burrow.
-Lapine in the language spoken by rabbits. It is what we named the Warrens and characters in. Here is a translation page: http://bitsnbobstones.watershipdown.org/lapine/dictengtolap.html
-Your characters don't have to have their normal name as a direct translation from their Lapine name.
