Boardwide Plots.

Throughout the history of Ruins of Wildwood, several larger plots have taken place to further the history of Relic Lore and create new challenges for our wolves and players. Many of these plots opened up new territories to explore as well as forcing pack- and lone wolves alike to work together and go outside of their comfort zones to protect their mutual home, keep it safe, thriving and happy.

Below is an archive of the past Boardwide Plots that have happened over time at Ruins of Wildwood. The timelines include a description of the overall plot with the individual events, threads, and characters that were involved.

Boardwide Plot 1: When the River Runs Dry.

Summer has just passed in Relic Lore and it was a hot one... But was it fiery enough to slowly drain away all the water? At first this peculiar event went unnoticed; the water that flowed along Heartleaf Creek and down Bramble Falls was always lower in the summer with less rain and more evaporation, but this time it just continued to get lower and lower. Wolves were starting to notice it, and some to panic, wondering, what if it continues to drain away until it is all gone? Will it ever come back? How can a forest hope to sustain if it has no water to help the foliage grow and the animals to drink?

Boardwide Plot 2: Where the Wild Things Are.

A sturdy structure within Relic Lore for as long as any inhabitant can recall, the Mountain of Dire has coursed the length of the lands with a protective and yet ominous presence. Yet with time, lands change. A shift in the rocks resulting in a dangerous slide has opened a passageway for the wolves of Relic Lore — one that once would have brought excitement at the reveal of more resources and an opportunity of exploration. Some things are better left untouched...
