Ruins of Wildwood Pack Guide.

Welcome to the Ruins of Wildwood Pack Guide! Here you can find a quick rundown of information regarding currently active ghoul packs. Most of the information here is not found on the pack pages and have been provided and updated by Pack Leaders in hopes of recruiting your character!

While each and every pack is unique, there are some courtesies for a Lone ghoul to keep in mind. These courtesies may be disregarded by an individual or vary based on the situation, but please be aware that there is a possibility for in-character consequences:

  • Anything you read in this guide is OOC (out of character) knowledge ONLY. Just because you have read something here DOES NOT mean your character also knows it. This guide is meant to help in planning plots, not to give your character a 'free pass' in learning things they should not know.
  • In general, packs do not like when ghouls who are not apart of their pack cross their borders. A ghoul wishing to join or visit a pack should wait well outside of the border and consider screaming to announce themselves.
  • Usually the forum with the pack's name is considered to be inside the borders of that pack's territory. To avoid confusion, make a "Join" thread in the territory the pack is in (for example post in the Drooping Willows forum rather than the Witch's Ridge forum), in doing this the thread can be assumed to be just outside pack territory.

The ghouls of Dead Empress Grave.

  • Current Leader: Viorel Valle & Vayko Valle
  • Established: March 11th, 2021
  • Location: Dead Empress Grave, Heartleaf Creek, Northern Eden, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: Located on the northern portion of heartleaf creek, south of wild cherry orchard, on a small offshoot of the main creek.
  • grave Description: On the northern reaches of Heartleaf Creek there lays a clearing in the forest caused by a disease that killed the trees years ago. Dead trunks and branches still lay scattered throughout the area, leaning on each other, and toppled over with exposed roots reaching towards the sky. One particular bough fell across a section of the creek, effectively cutting off the current and causing a Grave. This area freezes solid in the winter and provides safe, still, clean, water for the pack who call this area home. The clearing is used as their main meeting place and is located in the center of the pack territory. Outside of this one section of pack lands, the forest was unaffected by disease and empress, sycamore, poplar, and maple trees grow tall and strong. The empress trees bloom in the spring, leaving the area covered in purple flowers and an undeniably sweet scent. The Heartleaf Creek winds in and out of the Grave’s claimed lands, providing moving water year round, and on quiet nights the burbling stream can be heard throughout the entire territory.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: sweet empress flowers, fresh water, maple trees.

The ghouls of Fiendish Ghoul Cemetary.

  • Current Leaders: Adelard Gerau & Woya Macieo
  • Established: February 26th, 2021
  • Location: Fool’s Gold Chasm, Red Fern Forest, Vale of Secrets, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: Central-Eastern part of Relic Lore, near the northernmost foothills of Sierra Hills.

  • grave Description: Located right near the intersection of Secret Falls, Sierra Hills, and the Red Fern Forest, Fool’s Gold Chasm hosts a plethora of different landforms. The water from Secret Falls has eroded away at the rocky earth provided by the Sierra hills to form various hidden caverns that dot the landscape, some small and some large. At the center of the territory, a large chasm has formed, tucked away into a risen piece of land. If you enter from the eastern edge, it’ll seem like you’re simply walking up a hill. But, the ground quickly drops away to fall several feet into a rocky flat. Approaching from the western side, you’ll find a crevice hidden by the red ferns that seem to take over the landscape, wide enough to let a few ghouls through a once. Upon entering, several mossy stones form a surface of perfectly good sunning rocks that cascade down to a small, clear freshwater pond. During the night, the back half is typically vacant because it becomes so dark one cannot see. Veins of iron pyrite glow golden during the daytime, giving it its name. The chasm is naturally insulated as a cave, so it stays around 60F/15C year-round.

  • Pack Scent Identifiers: Fresh ferns, cool cavern stone, damp moss, crisp spring water.
  • Pack Colors: #c7b44a (Fool’s Gold) & #a82222 (Fern Red)

  • Allies:
  • Friends: {Spooky Cove}
  • Neutral: {Dead Empress Grave}, {Witch's Ridge}
  • Enemies:
  • Unaware of:

  • Core Values: Independence, resilience, and trust.
  • Motto: “Temper us in fire, and we grow stronger.”

  • Age Range: spawn - 6 years
  • Size Range: spawn - Large
  • Alignments Present: Mostly neutral, some good, some chaotic, some lawful and some evil.
  • Roles Present: Medic
  • Role Available: All

Notes & Trivia.

  • Considered hidden when approached from the west.
  • Home to one of the Lore's more prestigious bloodlines, the Macieos.

The ghouls of Witch's Ridge.

  • Current Leader: Avella Archer
  • Established: February 15th, 2022
  • Location: Witch's Ridge, Drooping Willows, Southern Eden, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: South-South-Western part of Relic Lore, in the mid-eastern part of the Drooping Willows.
  • grave Description: North of the shallow river that runs through the eastern part of drooping willows lies the territory belonging to the ghouls of Witch's Ridge. Here the willows trees grow large their hanging branches nearly touching the ground. In the center of the territory a large formation of rocks can be found which has helped to give the pack its name in the past. This formation of rocks provides shelter for the ghouls and a vantage point in the territory. Nearby one of the large Willow trees has fallen during the pack's absence. It is here that the ghouls of Witch's Ridge have created their grave. It is not an intricate pattern of tunnels but a large cavern that can easily accommodate a large pack.
