PostSubject: 3/19/2014 - Running with the Pack   Wed Mar 19, 2014 10:28 pm

It is a dark and rainy night and the Umbral forest opposite the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in Middleport, NY is quiet. The sound of raindrops and the occasional howl in the distance are the only sounds. A lone figure stalks in the shadow of the trees.

The bird and wind spirits fly ahead, screaming raucously to the still forest. "A blind wolf is coming! All alone! All alone! A blind wolf is coming!" The grey paws are nearly silent on the soft ground, but every few steps the wolf trips. The silence is interrupted abruptly by the sound of his stumble, he rights himself, and continues on.

After a while, he raises his nose, sniffs, and moves to the left into a clearing in the woods. He marks his territory at the edges, moves to the center, and raises a howl of greeting that echoes through the whole forest. (Call of the Wyld, Expression x4)

<<"Brethren, hear me! I am a Garou of the Nation, a mighty Warrior of Gaia incarnated to serve the Balance! I have walked dark paths and seen unimaginable sights! I have seen so many dangerous secrets that I can see no longer! As one born of man, I see such a condition as an infirmity, a weakness! My kin among the Wolves long ago learned to compensate for disability with other senses and I wish to learn that skill! I would run with a pack! I would hunt and protect my fellow wolves! I would learn to run with you, and in return I can be a great ally! I await you in the darkness! Find me and let us run together!">>

The howl repeats twice, and then the Galliard grows silent, sitting on his haunches in the clearing awaiting his visitors.

An answer comes almost immediately, from somewhere off to the left. It's hard to tell how far: wolf calls have an eerie way of carrying.

The call that comes, though, is one of pain and distress.

Adam's eyes narrow suspiciously, but he begins a steady trot in the direction of the noise. He focuses all his attention on his hearing and sense of smell, trying his best to navigate the forest and follow the sound.

Stumbling through the forest without benefit of sight is...difficult, to say the least. It's hard to even be sure how far you've gone. But you come into a clearing where the thin whine of a young female wolf tells you you've found what you seek.

Adam sniffs around carefully for a moment before acknowledging the wolf's distress. ((Sense the Hidden for living creatures other than the Wolf. Sense Magic. Awareness for indications of a trap.))

Sense the Hidden reveals...actually, a fairly surprising lack of the usual small critters of the forest. Sense Magic doesn't reveal any active magic in the area. Nor do you feel eyes on your back at the moment.

At the risk of lapsing into cliche: it's quiet. Too quiet.

The wolf whines again.

((By "living creatures", I mean creatures in general. We're in the Umbra so the term "living" is a bit of a misnomer. Do I smell blood?))

Adam moves a step closer to the wolf, senses alert to danger. He speaks to the wolf in Spirit Speech.

<<"What has happened?">>

(( OOC: Yep. The usual Englings are conspicuously absent. Keep in mind that a damaged spirit isn't actually going to bleed, so you wouldn't really expect to smell blood here...and you don't. ))

<<"I can heal you, if you will permit it. I will need to touch you.">>

Adam sniffs and probes the wolf until he finds the wound, at which point he invests the spirit with Gnosis to heal it.

The spirit stirs.

<< One grows stronger, >> she says. << But one's pack is still gone. One's cubs are gone. >>

This is accompanied by a quiet, mournful whine.

Adam returns to Lupus and sits down as close to the wolf as she will let him.

<<"What happened?">> He says, quietly. <<"Tell me everything, I will help as best I can.">>

<< The pack hunted.  We were attacked by one such as you, running-on-two-legs-and-four, but smelling of madness and the Unmaker.  She was strong enough to slay the other hunters of the pack; one was not strong enough to defeat her.  The cubs, she took.  One does not know why. >>

Adam's nostrils flare wide. His expression is one of pure rage.

<<"Where?">> His tone is calm, deadly. <<"Take me there. We will track your cubs together, mother wolf, and we will rescue them.">>

She stands and starts to move away through the Umbral forest.

Adam looks back for a moment.

<<"Wait. First we must return to the clearing I marked. Can you smell it? There is something we must do there before we move too far abroad.">>

Adam returns to the clearing and reverts to Homid. He grabs a stick, about five feet in length, and walks to the center of the clearing. He sticks it in the mud. Reaching into a pocket, he withdraws a burr, and sticks it to the stick.

He steps back, runs his hands along his handiwork to study it's effect, and then sticks another burr a little farther down the stick.

He steps back again, cocks his head, and snaps his fingers.

((Static Gnosis Chop below to create an illusion. Me then the world.))

The stick with burrs stuck to it disappears, and a perfect illusion of Adam in Lupus sitting in the center of the clearing appears to replace it.

<<"Now, I'll be sitting there while I'm gone, and if any ...say... BSDs were to answer my Howl and attack, they'll get a Beacon Burr Talen stuck to them.">>

Adam reverts to Lupus once again.

<<"Yes, absolutely. This a trap put in place in case she comes to answer my howl and attack me while we hunt her. Lead the way, I will follow, but keep in mind that I am blind and my senses are not as keen as yours, do not let me fall behind. Also, keep your eyes and ears open for pigeons. If you see one, stop and tell me. Not that a pigeon at night in the middle of the forest is something you'd expect to see anyway...">>

He trails off.

<<"Just lead on.">>

The wolf leads you through the woods to a spot that still shows some signs of earlier violence.
