Last Thread : http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29300046/Char Sheet : Next PostTwitter : https://twitter.com/81DEsW1xz4NYou are a wolf and you are being hunted. Humans invaded your territory and stole all of your prey. Almost your entire pack starved to death in the winter. You and your pack leader survived by eating the corpses of the humans, and fighting. But even that wasn't enough.You abandoned your territory, leaving your father behind, and sought out a new pack. It was then that you encountered Treebark, Guardian of the Woods, shortly before the great bear was slain by the weapons of man. You butchered his wounded assailants and fled, but now they are hunting you.There is a lone human with three dogs. He is Hasdrubal, the Tracker, and he is coming for you. Looking down on him from the frigid mountain cliffs, you can see that his hounds are fast on the trail to your new pack's den, and you doubt Schatten will fight them off rather than flee.>Attack Hasdrubal>Attack his hounds>Run back to the den>Avoid him>Other

You turn back from the cliffs edge before you’re spotted. The deer you took down will sustain you during the fight you know is coming. You don’t waste time trying to get all the meat off the carcass, instead you focus on the easiest parts to consume and fill your gut as best you can. The meat is warm and bloody, but age has made it tough. The fawn would have tasted better, but you’d need a pack to catch one of them. Maybe now that you’ve killed the buck you’ll be able to catch them though.Hunger : 1/5You leave barely enough for the scavengers to fight over, let alone enough to bring to the pack. You’ll need the strength.When you descend the mountain slope you quickly find the human’s tracks. He’s headed directly for the den but doesn’t seem to be in much of a rush. You can smell the scent of the monsters on him, along with an overpowering smell of garlic. You’ve found wild garlic before, but they are sparse and weedy things, he has much more than that. The acid is enough to make you sneeze and waters your eyes despite how long it has been sitting.The sun is starting to set.>Charge back to the den>Stick to the shadows and track down the human>Howl and try to lure him back>Other

>>29322303>Charge back to the denWarn them.Schatten will probably will not take kindly to our warnings, but we should warn them.
>>29322303By the way, wolves have certain howls for simple communication right? Like prey, and danger. If we are howling, we should howl danger so the wolves in den know there is danger close by.

>>29322549>dem triple 17'sIs this like fire emblem? Do they get synchronicity attacks?
The only part of the day that matters is here. Woo.
>>29322633What's going to happen is the pack is going to get injured and split up and then the three hounds will hunt them each down in turn, running them down like prey because wolves favor survival while hounds have been trained to attack and attack and never give ground
>>29322633all our new pack is dead, fuck you hungry niggers, now we are alone again
>>29322663Should have fought them rather than eat
>>29322663You wanted to die with them? Also don't worry, some of them are injured but they can still put on a fight.
>>29322663They may survive but be injured, allowing us to save the day.Schatten will likely either have a last stand or run like a pussy, both are good chances for us to take over as pack leader assuming anyone is left after thatIn the former he may die, in the latter he is a pansy not fit to lead.>>29322691Our choice may allow us to survive where they do not, though a united stand may have worked out as well. At least if we come from the back we might be able to ambush the tracker who may be using a bow.

>17 17 17I-it's not like I wanted to go back in spring to old territory with new pack and a couple small cubs to introduce to papa...nooo...it's better to watch everybody we care about die horribly, bleeding on a snow while hunter skins them alive.
>>29322712We would have stood a better chance together.You must be blind and stupid to not see that
>>29322744We were at 4/5 hunger and we would hunger quicly while fighting. This will be a drawn out fight with so many opponents. Do you want to fight them while starving? Do you want to die? If some of the wolves of this pack dies, it is a shame but it is better than whitefang dieing just because he reckelssly fought for them
You howl a cry of danger to your pack. Your voice bounds between the trees and you know Hasdrubal heard it. They wouldn’t send a hunter after a man killer that couldn’t identify it. He’ll be coming for you, although you are uncertain what he will do with the hounds. You start running along his trail, the scent of garlic making it easy to follow.You keep your pace careful and stick to the shadows where you can. You’ve been living on this land for a few days now, you know it better than some trespassing human. You’re almost back to the den when his scent turns strange. Sensing the danger, you back away.Above you, perched in a tree as if he were a songbird, is Hasdrubal. In his hands is a loose bow, and he is overlooking your den. Just like the one who nearly killed you at the great hill. You can hear the sounds of fighting in the pack. The snarling and yelping of pain. The sisters are the loudest, but Schatten is the fiercest. They’re fighting against the dogs, but likely do not know of Hasdrubal and are merely targets for him.>Reveal yourself to Hasdrubal and retreat, force him out of the tree>Help your pack>Flee>Other
>>29322794>Reveal yourself to Hasdrubal and retreat, force him out of the tree
>>29322789You accumulate hunger in one of two ways during a fight. You can Exert yourself to increase your crit dice pool range, or you can use Sword Dancer if he pulls a blade on you. Being at 5/5 hunger doesn't stop you from Fighting or anything
>>29322794>Reveal yourself to Hasdrubal and retreat, force him out of the treeIf we do this, we can get the fucker 1 on 1 and then retreat from dogs. Dogs will die in this territory without hunter.
>>29322794>Reveal yourself to Hasdrubal and retreat, force him out of the treeCan we ram the tree or something to make him fall?
>>29322794>Reveal yourself to Hasdrubal and retreat, force him out of the treeDistract the hunter. Three dogs are no match for four wolves and a legend unless they roll 3 17sWe will likely take an arrow to the gut for out trouble however. But we are better at dodging than the others, do not have dogs on us, and can probably survive more hits. Also can't die to ranged attacks, though we can be injured and finished off by a hound.

You snarl and bark at him, catching his attention for a moment. He spins and looses an arrow at you, but you start running back through the woods and the stick misses you. You stop just out of sight of him, and listen to see if he is climbing down. All you can hear is the snarling and snapping of fangs. Both the hounds and your pack seem to be taking wounds.Then you hear the loud yelping and whining of the female wolf. Her breath is short and high, lacking almost all of her strength. Schatten starts barking as you walk back around, growling with palpable bloodlust.Hasdrubal drops out of the tree in front of you, discarding the bow and pulling out his spear. He sees you and speaks. “Come Whitefang. No bow, spear.” He spins the spear around and brings it to point at you.You can’t see the den from here, but you are very close.>Dash around him, help your pack>Attack>Other

>>29323156Attack.Taking Hadrubal to where he can coordinate with his trained dogs is a dumb idea. Best thing we can do is own him so hard he recalls his hounds for defense.
>>29323156Attack, but aim to hamstring him, rather than kill. If we tear up a leg, we can rush back to the other wolves and lend a claw before the battle goes too poorly for them.

You try to close in and attack him but he retreats, jabbing out with the spear. He’s hardly even trying to attack you, just wear you out it seems. His thrusts are half-hearted and never strike true, but they keep you dancing around him, burning far more energy than him. All you accomplish is backing him into a small clearing between trees.The hounds are barking happily now, their bloodlust growing. Your pack is calling out for help and you can hear the sisters howling in the distance, a mournful and panicked reply.The grey wolf bursts through the trees near you, running. Schatten and the female wolf must be going the other way. And you don’t see the hounds chasing after him. What was a five against three has become three against two, and you are certain Hasdrubal wounded the female wolf.>Press the attack>Break away to hunt down the hounds>Flee>Other

You turn and run in the direction the grey wolf came from. Hasdrubal takes his opportunity and stabs your back leg as you run, but you flee anyways. You bust through the trees and see the clearing around the den. Blood is everywhere, from the wolves and the hounds. You try to find Schatten’s scent, but you realize the purpose of Hasdrubal’s garlic. Your snout is still in disarray from the overbearing scent and you can’t discern the direction your pack took.But then you hear Schatten’s growl and you take off. You overtake the pack of hounds as they pull the black wolf to the ground, biting at his heels and circling around him. Beyond him, the female wolf is limping on without him, Hasdrubal’s stick imbedded in her chest. She’s in no shape to escape the hounds, but has been managing somehow anyways.The three dogs beneath you are heavily injured, but fight with an insane urge that drives them to the brink. Your pack did not scatter without a fight. The dogs haven't noticed you yet.But you worry about what Hasdrubal is doing while you handle the hounds.>Take out the strongest>Take out the weakest>Abandon Schatten>Other
>>29323898i'd be fine with it. she is not the only shewolf in the world. i am fine as long as we live. survival above all else.

>>29323978You clearly have zero roleplaying experience.
Dear god, Romulus just played directly to /tg/s hate of not being the alpha male, their need to power game, their full belief in bullshit luck, and their desire to woo the first female character at the cost of everything elseThis whole thing is such a god damned clusterfuckGet some sense people. We need Schatten, he's the only one able to fight with us. We're much stronger than the hounds, but we dont' do much damage to them, we need to cull them and isolate Hasdrubal
>>29323941If the pack fractures that means we'll have to deal with more competition in this territory. Wolfu was the only one of the pack that accepted us, if she sides with Schatten we're screwed
>>29324107well saidanother vote for saving schatten
>>29324116you know that we could just challange schatten for dominance of the pack, right?we don't even have to kill him, just give him a good beating and for a while we are the leader, until the next fight.
>>29324107I think most of us agreed to save Schatten though? The votes seem to have us risking ourselves for his benefit by attacking the strongest.Which is fine, I would prefer he did not die. At least not yet maybe.
>>29324107>Get some sense people. We need Schatten, he's the only one able to fight with us. We're much stronger than the hounds, but we dont' do much damage to them, we need to cull them and isolate HasdrubalBut we ARE helping Schatten...?I don't see your point.
>>29324194>But we ARE helping Schattenbut not everyone wants to.
Calling a Sudden DeathAnd there might have been a misunderstanding, but strongest and weakest is in terms of how much they've already been hurt. All of them are about as strong as an average wolf1 - Strongest2 - Weakest
>>29324116We can be the lone wolf and look for another pack. Better than being the dead wolf. I never said it was desirable, i said i'd be fine with it. survival is the top priority for me.
>>29324107This entire quest is like that.It has been said and shown time and fucking time again that the entire world is out to fucking get us. That we are playing some hardcore, oldschool shit, that we should play safe and not start shit.But nooo, we have to attack every fucking human we come across.No matter how strong we become, something stronger is going to turn up and be against us.We kill this hunter and his pack? Welp, next time an entire hunting party is going to turn up, etcYou're wrong about Schatten though. We are trying to help.
>>29324159A pack of two now. If neither of them like us they might not accept us at all. We want at least one on our side, preferably both.But now it's clear we bring human trouble so it might not matter at all
>>29324205>Its injury level not actual strength>All equal strength if uninjuredwell now, in that case...if we surprise attack the least injured it might get injured and be easier to fight later. but if we attack the most injured we could finish it off and then numbers will be on our side.

You leap down amidst them, scattering them from Schatten. You snarl and snap at them as they circle around you. They start sniffing the air around you and seem to recognize you. Their attention had been on the black wolf, but now they are solely focused on you. But you can take on these three pups.Of the three of them, only one is unharmed, and one of them is close to death. But when you notice that, so does Schatten. He had gotten back to his feet behind you. When the two of you lunge forward to assault the weakened one, you collide and trip over one another. You tumble over one another through the snow, snarling at one another. When you get back to your feet, the three hounds close in.You jump away and muscle past one, knocking it into the snow to make yourself a clearing. When you turn around, you see that the three hounds are focused solely on you, giving Schatten space. And something has changed about the black wolf. Shadows dance over his fur, obscuring him in the shadows of the trees and he stands much taller at the shoulder.>Continue the assault>Make an opening for Schatten>Flee>Other

You back up, drawing the hounds farther away from Schatten, and he understands your intent. The injured one drifts to the back of the pack, closest to Schatten. The two in front move to attack you the same moment Schatten pounces. The strongest of the hounds gets his mouth around your shoulder wound, tearing it back open, but you break through.Health : 4The weakened hound is yelping in pain as Schatten clamps down on his back, cracking his spine. His legs spasm and start kicking out as he twists around. The dog reveals its neck in its attempt to escape, and you rip it apart. You back off of the corpse to face the other hounds, hoping that they will back off, but they show no fear at all. They will not stop fighting till they perish.Then you hear a strange noise, like the slurping of water and the cracking of ice. Behind you, Schatten is still biting onto the hound, but the corpse is twisting back and forth sporadically. When the black wolf finally releases his grip, blood falls out of his mouth. He snarls at the hounds with renewed vigor.>Attack the same as Schatten>Attack the other>Flee>Other

The two of you snarl at the hounds, and in unison charge the injured one. They put up a bit of a fight, but both of you are stronger than a normal wolf. Both of you are fueled by something more. The injured hound goes down quickly, as they snap without success. When you gore out its throat, you turn on the final hound while Schatten bites down on the corpse. The same draining and cracking of the carcass happens, and Schatten stands even taller, his wounds sealing up.The hound fights bravely, but is just one dog. You are Whitefang, Terror of the Woods, and you tear the beast apart with your pack leader. When it finally lays dead in the snow, Schatten descends on it. You check the other dogs and confirm that the blood is completely missing. Whatever Schatten is, it is unnatural.Then you hear Hasdrubal, he is shouting for you to come to him and laughing. You peer between the branches back to the den to see him.He stands alone in the center of the clearing, with the grey wolf dead and slung over his shoulder.>Charge him>Wait for Schatten>Flee>Other

>>29325631>>OtherMove into a flanking position if possible, otherwise wait for Schatten
You back away silently. He is a strong foe, not one you would be able to kill by yourself. You turn to Schatten, who fought by your side. He walks up beside you, blood still dripping from his mouth, and looks into the clearing. He bares his fangs, but his tail drops. Just when you think to move in for the attack, he backs away. You watch as he trots in the opposite direction and stops to look back to you.It seems he doesn’t plan to fight Hasdrubal.You can hear the female wolf and her sisters in the far distance, the three of them met back up after fleeing. Schatten is leaving to join them.Your tail drops as he leaves you behind.>Fight Hasdrubal>Leave with Schatten>Other
>>29325766Don't listen to that guy, higher chance for spectacular failure and success result in bretty ebin situations. Remember first thread? We practically died and then...20.Or in third thread I think when a namefriend rolled 3 x 20 and killed fucking everybody.

>>29325850are we big and strong enough to carry one of the dead hounds when we run?
>>29325889I like this... heck we can even avoiding attacking him directly and instead steal his supplies.
As a wolf, could we come to understand killing humans is bringing more dangerous humans into our territory?
Let's follow the leader
>>29325850>>OtherGrab a dog corpse and leave with Schatten. We need to feed the survivors.Eating dogs is not considered taboo in wolf culture is it?
The dude has +8 modifier. Probably has more helath than us too. It is a dumb idea to fight now.
>>29325889>>29325961Pls no.He gets a 3-die dicepool just like us and has +8 for Fighting. We cannot take him on alone without relying on luck.
>>Leave with Schatten
>>29326016Human weapons OP
>>29326047We can't rely on strategy either.
>>29326011I vote this.We need to round up who we can and rest up.
>>29326054Yeah, it's almost like they were specifically created to kill with while protecting the user
>>29326016If we leave he may just follow. We want to at least slow him before we flee, and hopefully two of us will have better odds at it
>>29326054>>29326096It's obvious. We need to start using their weapons ourself.
>>29326126He'll have a hard time tracking without hounds. If we fight he has more chance of injuring us so we cant run than we injuring him so he cannot follow.
>>29326126Then let him follow. At least then we will be with a pack.
>>29326011I already asked, romulus said we are not strong enough to carry a dog while running. We would have to drag it on the ground which means we will be followed as well as lead him to the pack.
>>29326186An injured pack and constantly on the move to avoid a hunter tracking us. Ideally we want to injure him enough so he'll need time to heal as wellThough perhaps >>29326178 has a point. The risk may not be worth it. We at least know now that Schatten can heal quickly with blood, so the risk isn't too high for him
You look between the human and Schatten. The grey wolf died because of you, and the human is too strong to take on by yourself. You turn and follow Schatten. The sisters are busy cleaning the female wolf’s wound when you find them. Schatten growls and doesn’t stop for them. They look around, testing the air, looking for the grey wolf. When their attention comes to you, you roll your ears back and continue on. The two of them understand and snarl in the direction of Hasdrubal, but get to their feet and start following.The female wolf is the last to rise, you stop to watch her. The injury has severely impaired her speed. She won’t be able to help in hunting for a while, and will need to be fed. But she endures the pain. You trot alongside her as you follow the pack leader through the territory, to the next den. The sun has fallen well below the mountains by the time you find the small shelter you’ll rest in. A few trees had fallen onto one another, a crude and poor shelter at best, but better than burrowing in the snow. The other four head into the den while you climb atop a rock to look behind you. Hasdrubal followed, and you barely gained any ground on him at all, his fire is perhaps an hour away.When you go back to the den to join your pack, Schatten jumps out. He snarls and barks, blocking your passage. He isn’t going to let you join them, and the others are too injured to intervene.>Rest outside>Fight him>Other
We need to find a way to hurt humans from afar... maybe we can make a trap from some rocks near a cliff... draw out the hunter by dragging one of the dogs leaving an obvious trail, then drop some rocks on him at range.
>>29326306Is Schatten still xboxhueg?
>>29326306>LeaveLet the fool Schatten fight the human by himself.
>>29326350He's always been smaller than you
>>29326306fite me irl bitch not online see what happens
>>29326306>>Rest outside>OtherPerhaps we can lure the tracker elsewhere with misleading tracks before finding somewhere to rest.
>>29326361>>29326306This. Find somewhere with a good vantage point to see where hasdrubal is.
>>29326306>Hasdrubal followed, and you barely gained any ground on him at all, his fire is perhaps an hour away.that motherfucker>OtherHide and rest somewhere outside. In case the hunter decides to attack the den in the morning or during the night we can flank/ambush him.Make sure to cover our tracks and scent if we can. We could try sleeping under snow or something.>>29326393We are NOT fighting him alone. We must wait till he attacks other wolves.Luring him doesn't do us any good since that means we have to fight him on our own.
>>29326306>OtherStalk the tracker. Maybe we can lead him away or get a good potshot at him
>>29326434>Hide and rest somewhere outside. In case the hunter decides to attack the den in the morning or during the night we can flank/ambush him.>Make sure to cover our tracks and scent if we can. We could try sleeping under snow or something.Yeah this.
>>29326434I was suggesting we mislead him, not fight him.
>>29326306the hunter is going to be on us in an hour... not worth it to have both us and schatten injured.Hide, when the hunter arrives schatten will either fight him and you can jump in and finish off the hunter after schatter and him injure each other.Or schatten will escape and leave the hunter alone with you and the 2 injured bitches (I mean no insult here), in which case its 3v1 and they might just follow you after/if the hunter is defeated (assuming they survive the fight)
>>29326434>Hasdrubal followedGee, its almost like people said that would happen.
>>29326564So?Now he followed and its him vs 4 wolves together instead of him vs us 1v1.
>>29326542Schatten is not going to fight hasdrubal. Why hasn't that become obvious to everyone yet? Worse comes to worse, Schatten will leave and the 2 other she-wolves will follow him, 90 percent positive. Then we're left with Hasdrubal and a crippled she-wolf.Fucking gank him already.
So the plan seems to be wait outside expecting Hasdrubal to attack?If so, I'll need a Fight check
>OtherLeave trail for Hunter to mislead it so he can fall down some cliff and wring his fucking neck god damn fuck you son of a bitch just die you motherfucker I mean every normal guy would just take a hint and gtfo what do you think you are some OG or what you sick fuck just go awayplz go
>>29326590Because schatten's been so willing to take on Hasdrubal in the past, right?
>>29326608>>29326644are you guys stupid? wolves escape, hunter follows, wolves escapes, hunter follows, eventually they have to stand and fight.
>>29326542Why are we still antagonistic towards Schatten? The guy is some super vampire wolf, he's good to have on our side.
>>29326690This. And if they don't we can fight him 1vs1 as you love to.
Rolled 6>>29326615Well ain't this quite the time we're having
Are you fucking stupid?The hunter is keeping up with us because She-wolf is slowing our pace to a crawl. If schatten choses to ditch her for the better of the rest of the pack, what teh fuck do you think happens?
>>29326690The hunter is primarily after us. Schatten knows that, so he doesn't want anything to do with us. He's probably hoping we'll kill each other and leave his pack alone
>>29326698>Why are we still antagonistic towards Schatten?other way around, he is antagonistic to us.We saved his life and that just madehim treat us even worse. Now he went from forcing us to eat last to even denying us entry into the den so we are forced to stay in the cold.
>>29326698Because he's attacking us?He's putting the needs of the pack ahead of us. He knows that if he kicks us out, Hasdrubal will stop hunting them. We're what he's after
>>29326698We're not, he's antagonistic towards us.
>>29326722at least it will be 2v1 not 1v1 one.>>29326734>>29326744you think he is smart enough to know that though?
>>29326735because we brought the human. This is our fault in the first place. We want him to like us, not hope he and the hunter kill each other
>>29326770No it won't, she's too injured to do anything other than die. She can't even HUNT, she has to be fed, and you think she can fight?
Rolled 7 + 5>>29326612
>>29326770when he first met us he smelt the human blood on us. That was where the hostility came from. He knows what happens when you fuck with humans, and so he avoids fucking with them. This was pointed out by OP in the last thread
>>29326770Yes, I mean, he is the alpha of a pack and some vampire freak, he probably outsmarted such hunters a couple of times.Also please, consider this guys >>29326615We are quite intelligent wolf, let's start using that stat to trap hunter/make him freeze to death/go mad/fall somewhere/go into bears den

>>29326844I dont think we are intelligent enough to make use of tools to make a trap.>>29326854Yes, it was the plan. Human will come attack Schatten so he doesnt flee like the bitch he is and fight, then we'll flank the human. Thats the plan at least.
>>29326980we're smart enough to try to cover our tracks yes?
>>29327030How though? We're in snow
>>29326980>>29326998I'm not talking about making a plate that will spring poison dart shooting mechanism, but luring guy at night. I mean, in the night in wilderness it must be more or less easy to get lost.Also didn't we have more intelligence at the beginning? I thought we were choosing strength and intelligence as what makes us better than the rest.
>>29327043We walk backwards dragging a branch in our mouth.
You back off from him and start looking for somewhere else to sleep. He snarls and watches every step you take. When you finally curl up against a pine, he huffs and returns to his pack. You know Hasdrubal will be upon you soon though. You keep your head up, in the freezing wind, and wait. You imagine the pack must be warm, which must be good for their wounds. The cuts and tears in your shoulder have continually scarred and broken again, leaving it in a constant dull agony.A small amount of snow has started to fall, and you worry your wound will freeze, but you’d have to fight to share in the warmth of the den. So you wait.And Hasdrubal does not come.Eventually, you fall asleep. When you awaken, you’re half covered in snow. You stand up, your muscles stiff and slow moving. You walk back to the overlook from which you saw Hasdrubal’s fire. It is no more, not even a wisp of smoke.Behind you, the pack crawls out of the den. They take turns testing the air before turning and starting towards the next den. When you move to follow behind, Schatten snaps at you and stands his ground.>Fight him>Follow at a distance>Leave for another place>Other
>>29326998>I dont think we are intelligent enough to make use of tools to make a trap.Not that kind of trap. the "leave obvious trail leading to environment hazard" kind of trap.Maybe with some "wait nearby and push him/push the boulder down on him/ etc"that being said >>29326980apparently we are too dumb for that.
>>29327043Grab fallen branch from the pine between teeth and drag it while going backwards.
>>29327095A normal wolf has an intelligence of 1 on this scale and wouldn't have a vocabularyYou are not an awakened wolf
>>29326980We ought to slip down and check out his campfire. We know from experience that human weapons can be destroyed by our fangs. Maybe we can slip in and shatter his spear before he can catch us? He has no hounds to keep watch for him.

>Follow at a distanceMight as well play the soon-to-be loner again, but we need to be prepared for breaking off and away from them later. The rest of the pack is going to follow Schatten, and Schatten has to think of his group's wellbeing first and foremost, above all else.We won't be able to get their support unless we kill him and take over as alpha, and we're in no shape to do that right now ( nor would the pack be of any use to us in their current state, outside of everyone protecting everyone from the hunter ).

>>29327416Hey, I'm open to suggestions mate, keep a cool head. Where should we go to heal, and are we willing to accept that doing so may lead to the death of the wolfu? If he follows the pack, chupacabra will probably leave her behind.

>>29327373I'm not sure what YOU are implying. He's doing that now. Why do think he keeps telling us to get lost? We're not good for his pack, the Hunter might go after them because of their involvement with us.If I were him, I would kill our wolf after we had significant distance from the Hunter, or severely wound our wolf. Teach him his place, leave him as a decoy in case the hunter thinks about coming after us after.I haven't been with this quest for long.

>>293275723 rolls is two more chances to roll a crit fail, and a single one would end us. We should rest and get our health back up to 9+ first if we choose to do that.
>>29327599Yeah, just fuck off from here and rest to full hp.
>>29327572We'd injure him and ourselves, our pack is already hurt and one is critically wounded. We'd just fuck up our pack strength more, and the others might not even follow us anyway. Then there's the hunter; we don't want to be too hurt if he shows up somewhere

You look over the pack. The sisters were aloof, but had been warming up to you and would have soon accepted you as another pack member. The female wolf had been your aly since the beginning. Schatten is their leader though, and he won’t have you any more. He recognized the smell of human blood on you when you arrived, and knew you would bring trouble upon the pakc. Now that you have, he’s trying to cut his losses. It’s nothing personal.You turn and leave with your tail between your legs. You descend down the mountain to the thicker forest. When you’re out of sight, you hear the female wolf howl after you.>Howl back>Stay silent>Other
>>29327697>>29327734I guess that it is possible to upgrade our Bite damage?
>>29327683Father is strong, there is a reason why the both survived. Seeking temporary solace with him while recouping would be ideal, getting father to join in taking leadership for this new pack might be a good idea. There seems to be food here, I am assuming father is starving if he did not leave?I'm not sure the distance, but without finding a place far enough from the Hunter to heal, we won't be able to take him alone.

>>29327835>>29327837As it is he already knows where Wolfu is now. Better he comes for us than the others
>>29327869That's a fair point, but he is a legend. He may be able to figure it out. Also, if he has a keen enough ear, he might realize how far apart the howls are.
>>29327869He is a hunter.
>>29327758>>Howl backWe may regret this, but this should take some of the attention off of wolfu who just announced her presence.Just make sure we sleep/eat somewhere far from where we howled.
>>29327887>As it is he already knows where Wolfu is now. Better he comes for us than the othersHow the fuck did you reach that stupid conclusion?
>>29327920Because wolfu just howled.
Rolled 4 + 2Howl Back just barely has the edge, writing the other half of the update once you give me a Flight check for some hunting
>>29327920Because Wolfu is in critical condition and currently defenseless
>>29327887>>29327919>>29327942SHE IS IN A PACK WITH 3 OTHER WOLFSONE OF THEM IS ALSO A LEGEND
>>29327967That legend always runs. He will absolutely leave wolfu behind. He already left us and gray wolf behind.
>>29327837or... and thats just a thoughthowl back, meet up with her, and the MOVE AWAY from the place where you originally howled.
>>29327967And that legend is a pragmatist who is likely to abandon her because a) she is slowing everyone else down b) she can't fight and c) she likes us.

Howl back>>29327967unless she left to follow us
>>29328027We can run. She can't.
She is a wolf, not your human waifu.If she dies that means she was weak and her cubs would be weak too.
>>29328055hey man, she was the best fighter against the hounds until Hasdrubal shot her, and she's not a legend
>>29328055We wouldn't aim to fuck her, we'd aim to have someone else in our pack, if she survives, that we can hunt with.
>>29328055She did save our ass though. She was the boon given to us by the dice gods when we died thread one. Bad karma to defy the dice gods.
>>29328055I believe she rolled a 20 when fighting the dogs and maybe heavily injured one.
>>29328055She is also the only other wolf in miles who gives a fuck about us. We need packmates
>>29328070>>29328080>>29328100>>29328102>>29328110She is already gone so stop thinking she is a possible pack member.
>>29328055wolves are monogamus.
>>29328100Yeah this.We died, rolled for a miracle, 20, and she saved us.We owe her in my mind.
>>29328055Were a wolf to so it's all good, also we would have died if it wasn't for her.
>>29328080well, some aim for the sex i am sure.But those that don't should still want her in the packAs a female wolf she will never be a threat to our pack authority. Male wolves will fight each other for dominance and might drive each other away (to ensure they are the only one who mates).Female wolves only fight other female wolves for dominance and its more rare that they drive each other away. (since they can share the alpha male... that being said, sometimes they do drive away another females based on pack politics).So yea, the ideal packmates for a wolf are the opposite gender
>>29328135Not quite true.
>>29328135the fuck? I am pretty sure the alpha male mates with all the females.
>>29328135Usually. Sometimes bachelors run around pimping themselves, sometimes couples break up and look for new mates.
>>29328196nah, alpha mates with the best, but the females usually prefer a lesser male than being fourth pickings I believeDepends on the individuals really
I love this thread.I was going to explain why, but I was not sure where to start.
>>29328196well, some google shows the alpha male mates with alpha female and the others don't mate at all. Probably to conserve the food supply.However they are serially monogamous, that is, when the alpha status shifts they switch.So, you can impregnate bitch a, then she loses her alpha status to bitch b and now you are with bitch b.Then you lose to male wolf c, now he is with bitch b.to call the above "monogamy" is horribly misleading
>>29328196A pack can usually only afford a single litter, so they stick with alpha pairings most of the time.
You howl back to her. A sad parting, but one you are sure will not be the last parting. The whispering in your soul tells you that Hasdrubal was listening. You take off down the slope, bounding down through the drifts of snow as fast as you can. You fly down the mountain, coming down upon a frozen stream and following that down till it joins with more streams.Then you catch the scent of a squirrel. It’s exposed on the river bank, throwing snow away as it digs down to the ground. in its search for its stored food, it lost sight of its surroundings. You sprint up on it, only being noticed when your breath is already upon it. The poor vermin tries to run away, but only makes it a few feet before you scoop it up and snap it in half.You trot over to a small stone clearing swept clear of snow and lay down to peel the meat off of the squirrel as quickly as you can. Hasdrubal will surely be upon you soon. As you are chewing the nutty vermin, you notice that you are sitting next to another stone outcropping, similar to the other one, but larger. The snow was cleaned off by something living, not the wind.You can hear a human nearby slowly walking and breathing heavily, but there is no scent of garlic.Hunger : 0/5>Flee>Wait to see the human>Other

>>29328386>Implying we will live that long
>>29328410Smart wolves are curious wolves. There aren't many smart wolves
Let's wait and see who it is.
>>29328496It's a human.There, done. Lets go now.
Sorry for the delay, my toilet almost explodedVote seems to be for waiting, I assume you'll want to be a bit out of sight though, yes?Writing
>>29328509But what kind? We need to know if this one needs to be killed and eaten like the others. At least learn it's appearence for future reference
>>29328509It might not be the hunter through hence the no garlic smell.
You snatch up what remains to be eaten of the squirrel and slip out of sight before the human can reach the top of the hill. You step behind an old oak tree as the human appears. A gentle breeze carries his scent to you; smoke, sweat, honey, and goats. He is garbed in simpler furs than the other humans, ones much less protective though you imagine the goat fur would be warmer. He only carries a simple branch in his hands, and there is no stone tip to it.When he reaches the stones, he kneels down. You left behind some bones and blood. “Schatten?” the human asks, squinting his eyes and peering into the woods. But his eyes do not seem to be very helpful, as he does not spot you. He shrugs and sets the branch across his legs and sits.Then something speaks to him. You do not know where it comes from, or how you understood. But it is a warning. He grips the branch strongly and stands up, looking through the woods. The goat man had seemed docile, but a spark had ignited in him.>Flee>Reveal yourself>Other
I have to take care of something, so there will be a delay. We're also on page 9, so can someone archive? If the time works out, I'll try to get a few more updates in, but it might not.Turns out I'll be able to run tomorrow afternoon as well, so don't fret too much
Rolled 2>>29328695>Reveal yourselfwhy would he call Schatten?walk towards him, teeth bared
>>29328695Do we realize "Schatten" is Schatten's name? How does that work exactly?
>>29328695>Reveal yourselfMagical tomfoolery is afoot here and I want it.
>>29328695Clearly this is Odin. Or some kind of legend. A legend who is Odin.Or maybe just a druid.>Reveal yourselfFlee if anything more dangerous than branch is shown.
>>29328748Toilet clogged up eh?
>>29328695fleeI guess Shatten took "be friends with humies" route
>>29328695>FleeGot the damn hunter on our tail again like it was so important to howl back.We need to get rid of the hunter and find a place to rest.
>>29328781Alright then, our shared knowledge of Schatten is curious>Reveal yourselfDo our best to NOT appear aggressive. Scared humans just run and bring more. Caution still in mind, still prepared to bolt.
>>29328842This is too interesting to pass up.Blindish man wearing simple clothing walking through the forest with a walking stick/staff who has knowledge of this area and/or nature.We can flee if we must, it is unlikely he is too much of a threat. But the voices we share tell him we are something dangerous, which is fairly accurate.I have no grudge against him like the other humans if he is a simple druid however, so unless the situation changes I mean him no harm.
>>29328920>>29328927We are a nightmare though, he might interpret whatever we do in a menacing light
>>29328958Good! If we play our cards right we might get an upgrade to our legend!
>>29328958then we flee. Let's hope he doesn't shoot fireballs or something
>>29328920>>29328927These people have my vote
>>29328958Of course, I am sure that is what the voices are warning him for.But (in my opinion) we should only be a nightmare to those who harm the wilds, if this man reveres nature then he is not a target in my mind.I fully intend to keep devouring the soldiers who have overhunted our game though.Nature is scary. Old druids and pagans performed rituals of appeasement to avoid its wrath.
>>29329034That kid we ate at the start of all this didn't overhunt our game. His father likewise only got all up in our shit cause we ate his son
>>29329122Nature is scary and we were starving.Maybe that kid should have thought about not standing on a cliff over an area home to starving wolves man. You don't get to complain about being eaten by a bear if you walk into its cave and break your ankle when it is starving.Also all those humans seem to be dead, killed by the attackers.
>>29329231Nevermind I recall them being routed. But the father is dead.
>>29328385in most species the alpha male fucks all the females. wolves are an exception.
Oh, we're still on page 9I can get an update or two out
>>29329323In most species there aren't alpha females

You hesitantly step out from behind the tree, the tail of the squirrel still hanging from your mouth. You step cracks the ice beneath your paw, making the slightest of noises. The human spins to face you, holding the branch as if it were spear. “Schatten?” he asks, but then he tilts his head to the side as if something were whispering to him, but there is only the wind. “Whitefang.”A blur of movement catches your eye high in the sky. You drop the squirrel and run, narrowly avoiding the arrow. The man turns from you to face where the arrow came from. You can see another human coming down the slope, bow in hand. Hasdrubal has caught up with you. The human who smells of goats tilts his head to the side again as he faces Hasdrubal. Then he calls out to him, “Hasdrubal, leave.”There is something in these stones. There is nothing special about the man, his presence does not stir any sparks of power. But something is not right. The wind blows again and the man who smells of goats starts to step between you and Hasdrubal.>Run, run so far away>Hide, observe>Stay your ground with the man who smells of goats>Other

You snarl and spread your stance out as Hasdrubal approaches. The two humans start exchanging words which you can only partially understand. Your name comes up, Treebark, Tracker, fight, monster, charm. You see Hasdrubal approach the human, focusing entirely on him rather than you. He gestures to the stones behind the man who smells of goats.Hasdrubal laughs and pushes the old man out of the way. You back off as he walks up between the stones and starts pulling on the furs around his waist. Then the man who smells of goats roars and swings his branch at Hasdrubal. The trained hunter easily dodges it, and in one fluid motion draws his human claw and sinks it into the man’s gut.You snarl as the wind picks up and starts blowing through the forest fiercely. Shards of snow and ice are getting picked up and thrown about with it as if it were a storm. Hasdrubal laughs as he pulls the stone out of the old man. He turns to you, but blinks and turns away. He holds up his hand, but the wind is too strong. He grunts in pain as he covers his eyes and stumbles back.Whatever power you felt before is amplified now, and focused on Hasdrubal. You bare your fangs.
And now I'm calling it to get foodHope you enjoyed, there'll be more tomorrow
