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 wolf 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 Wolf 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 wolves who are not apart of their pack cross their borders. A wolf wishing to join or visit a pack should wait well outside of the border and consider howling 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 Willow Ridge forum), in doing this the thread can be assumed to be just outside pack territory.

The Wolves of Willow Ridge.

  • Current Leader: Sven & Ravenna
  • Established: June 19th, 2012
  • Location: Willow Ridge, Drooping Willows, Southern Eden, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: South-South-Western part of Relic Lore, in the mid-eastern part of the Drooping Willows.
  • Den Description: Situated in the eastern part of Drooping Willows, north of a shallow river and not far from the Riddle Heights, lies the Willow Ridge Pack territory. Just as it's name suggests, a small formation of rock gathers together to form both a high advantage for the wolves and as well a cave used for the pack's den. It is not by far an enormous cavern system of tunnels and stalactites, but a vast, open area fitting for a large pack of wolves with plenty of room to spare. A dug out underground den within the ridge's cave supplies for Elettra's Infirmary, where thick and abundant smells of herbs and flowers emit.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: Willow bark, willow leaves, fresh mud, dried herbs, dead grass.

  • Pack Colors: #762900 & #E8AB70
  • Character Alignment: Mostly Neutral, Some Good, Mostly Lawful.

  • Allies:
  • Neutral: All other packs.
  • Enemies:

  • Core Values: Will, Strength, Loyalty, Honor, Respect, and Unity.
  • Motto: "All which is just."

  • Age Range: Pup - 7 years old.
  • Size Range: Small - Large.
  • Roles Present: 

Notes & Trivia.

  • Any wolf of all size, color, age and alignment are free to join as long as they show dedication and promise for the pack. However, the current Leaders are Lawful Neutral characters and those more 'in their mind-set' may have a better 'fit' within the pack as Chaotic acts are not for a well structured pack.
  • Willow Ridge is by no means a secret pack, nor do they seek to keep themselves unknown from the world. They are a proud and domineering pack who sing of their strength for all Relic Lore to know with either fear, jealousy, or awe.
  • Their values and pack motto extend to "all which is just", meaning that there is no set subjects as loyalty, family or love to focus upon within the pack, but that the pack craves "All which is Just" from their members: Will, Strength, Loyalty, Honor and without a doubt, Respect and Unity.
  • Willow Ridge borders are easy to find as they are heavily-scented and touched upon by nearly all adult members.
  • Wolves with a high drive for work and success are best fitting in this pack, as laziness will make for an easy ticket out.

The Wolves of Oak Tree Bend.

  • Current Leader: Aponi Donata & Serach Donata
  • Established: April 16th, 2013
  • Location: Oak Tree Bend, Spectral Woods, Vale of Secrets, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: Eastern part of Relic Lore, north of Umbra Copse.
  • Den Description: Near the base of the Sierra Hills meanders a shallow, gentle stream next to the rising red rocks. The dark forests around loom on the horizon, but the trees are sparse here, allowing for more sunlight to reach the mossy ground. Only a stone's throw away from the creek the trees open up in a glade, with an old, majestic oak at its center. On the sloping edge of the clearing the Oak Tree Bend wolves have dug their main den beneath a cluster of angular rocks hidden away in the scanty thickets.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: Oak bark and leaves, river stones, woodsy, earthy.

  • Pack Colors: #427c12 & #3d221d
  • Character Alignment: Mostly Lawful, Mostly Good, Some Chaotic, Some Neutral, Some Evil.

  • Allies: Fallen Tree Cove, Driftwood Surge, Aurora Heights
  • Neutral: Willow Ridge,
  • Enemies: ---

  • Core Values: Heritage, Reliability, and Duty.
  • Motto: "We thrive regardless."

  • Age Range: Pup - 4 years old.
  • Size Range: Pup - Medium.
  • Roles Present: Yearling 

Notes & Trivia.

  • The wolves of Oak Tree Bend have suffered several losses, betrayals, and instances of abandonment. Once a close knit family, the pack struggles beneath the weight of the past but is driven to work together when it counts. 
  • After the rank challenge of Aponi and Spieden a year ago the pack has a much different feel. It's numbers are smaller and mostly family based, and long gone is the relaxed feel that was once the norm. While Aponi and Serach allow their subordinates the freedom they desire they're expected to pull their weight and contribute to the pack as a whole. Hardworking wolves will fit in well here.
  • Those who have been around long enough might still refer to them as the Swift River pack.

The Wolves of Driftwood Surge.

  • Established: February 2nd, 2018.
  • Location: Turtleback Lake, Snowmarch Expanse, Relic Lore.
  • Navigation: North-eastern Relic Lore, west of Turtleback Lake, nestled between the mountain and the lake.
  • Den Description: Boulders line the western shores of the surging river due, remnants of the mountain. Foliage still thrives atop the stone; carved into the rock is a large, abandoned bear den shrouded by evergreen trees. A few metres away is a second den, carved into the base of a towering cedar tree. The dens are high enough away from the river that if a flood was to occur they would remain untouched. Beneath the rocky ledge the river rages on, accessible by a rocky path that leads to a pebbled beach.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: White Cedar, White Fir, Hellebore, loamy, earthy, and moist soil. Damp.

  • Pack Colors: #b6d074 & #52848f.
  • Character Alignments: Mostly Neutral, Some Lawful.

  • Motto: "Stick with those who stick with you."

  • Age Range: Pup – 6 years old.
  • Size Range: Small – Large.
  • Roles Present: Guardian.

Notes & Trivia.

  • The borders are well guarded and heavily marked; it is not easy to miss them.
  • The pack scent is quite an earthy one, mixed with damp soil and mountainous air.
  • Second chances are not given often; once a wolf has left the pack they are gone.
  • Family-orientated pack – loyalty is huge for the Driftwood wolves.
  • The pack is led by Lachesis "XIX" Stark and Lilya Valrorys, former leaders of Hearthwood River.
  • This is the third time Lachesis had moved with the 'same' pack.
  • Lachesis "XIX" Stark has a good relationship with the leaders of Shallows Edge, making them Driftwood's closest ally.

The Wolves of Fallen Tree Cove.

  • Current Leaders: Kajika Tallis & Moonshadow Eastfall
  • Established: November 21st, 2014
  • Location: Fallen Tree Cove, Lost Lake, Serpent’s Pass, Relic Lore.
  • Den Description: Located on the northeastern side of the Lost Lake a peaceful cove extends out from the parenting lake which harbors the Fallen Tree Cove territory. Following the small inlet one finds themselves shaded by the canopy of pine trees on one side and the waters of the lake on the other. Continuing a few yards inland from this inlet is where the pack calls home to a rocky den created by avalanches that ripped down the mountainside during the brutal winter of 2013, nearly unnoticeable by the untrained eye. The den is protected on three sides by large boulders with fallen trees littering the sides of the boulders acting as a blind over the entrance, concealing the den from those who don’t know its exact location, making the cave fitting for the Lost Lake that seems to appear and disappear on its own. Venturing further north the terrain begins to change as soft soil and pine trees thin to give way to scarce vegetation and gravel as one grows closer to the base of the Mountain of Dire.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: damp earth, Nightshade, White Fir, pine needles, rotten wood, earthy

  • Pack Colors: #f757a7 & #fd641e
  • Character Alignments: Mostly Chaotic Good, Mostly Chaotic Neutral, Some Neutral.

  • Allies: Oak Tree Bend, Grizzly Hollow
  • Neutral: ---
  • Enemies: Whisper Caverns

  • Core Values: Strength, Respect, Courage, Passion, and Duty.
  • Motto: "Sometimes you have to go back to actually move forward."

  • Age Range: Pup - 5 years old.
  • Size Range: Medium - Large.
  • Roles Present: Subordinate. Guardian. 

Notes & Trivia.

  • The borders are heavily marked and wouldn’t go unnoticed by a passing loner.
  • Fallen Tree Cove is the second pack to lay claim to the Lost Lake. The first to claim to the Lost Lake was Poison Path, founded by Naira and Rhysis, where Athena also led for a time before it’s disbandment in 2013.

The Wolves of Wild Rye Fields

  • Current Leaders: Laike Artemieva & Jessie Tainn
  • Established: September 15th, 2016
  • Location: Wild Rye Fields, Larkcall Lowlands, Snowmarch Expanse, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: Northern part of Relic Lore, just north of Nightingale Palisade, in the southernmost part of Larkcall Lowlands.
  • Den Description: Right at the edge of the Lowlands, where open fields meet the forested out-runners of Serpents Pass, flowers and more common grasses give way to a much brighter sort. Waving ears of wild rye stand high, blanketing the rolling hills in a golden sea, from mid spring until the first winter storms knock down the stalks. The fields run all the way to the tree line, only yielding for lighter underbrush where the low pines put the ground in shade. Out in the open, the grain is almost uncorrupted, only a rare few weeds managing to hold their ground among the yellow stalks, mostly along the banks of the wide creek cutting straight through the hills before pooling near the forest's edge, forming a small basin. Close by, among the shelter of the trees, a small den is dug out between the roots of a lone oak in the midst of a wood of pines.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: Grass, grain, pine needles, fresh water and warm stones.

  • Pack Colors: #D7B13E & #334010
  • Character Alignment: Mostly Neutral, Some Lawful, Some Chaotic.

  • Allies: Oak Tree Bend, Driftwood Surge, Shallows Edge
  • Neutral: -
  • Unfriendly: None
  • Enemies: None

  • Core Values: Hope, Family, Honesty and Loyalty.
  • Motto: "Together we are strong."

  • Age Range: Pup - 8 years old.
  • Size Range: Small - Large.
  • Roles Present: None

Notes & Trivia.

  • Even though the pack wasn't officially founded until September, Drestig and Jessie lived in the unclaimed territory from late April, and their daughter Phoenix was born there.
  • Though there is no blood relation to the Tainn's, both Jessie and Drestig still feel tightly connected to the family and retains good relations with their pack(s)

  • Location: Charred Ash Draw, The Wildwood, The Heart, Relic Lore
  • Navigation:Northern reaches of the burned section of the Wildwood.

  • Current Leader: Morganna Archer-Lyall & Celandine Argyris
  • Established: January 16th, 2018.
  • Location: Pookastone Scowle, Iridescent Lagoon, Southern Eden, Relic Lore
  • Navigation:Northern-western edges of the Iridescent Lagoon where the cedarwood begins to encroach upon it's banks.
  • Den Description: A labyrinthine series of dips and hollows that snake between the trees. Moss covered rocks and a dense canopy overhead give the place an almost ethereal atmosphere, all paths seemingly leading to one central granite rock, an upright plinth spared a mossy covering for the clear ground that surrounds it, allowing sunlight to flood the clearing.

  • Navigation: Located on the north side of Riddle Heights, nestled between a stream and a lone stand of firs.
  • Den Description: Aurora Heights is due north of Silent Moon Plateau, where an amphoral stream runs near one of the local peaks. At night, the thin air allows a gorgeous view of the sky, as if it is the very window to all the worlds beyond this one. The ground here is rocky and sparse, but pines and firs still grow, making a breathtaking backdrop to the nightly show of lights during the winter months. There is a certain degree of magic here, if you can tolerate the exposure.

The Wolves of Shallows Edge.

  • Current Leaders: Askan Selwyn & Reyes
  • Established: November 25th, 2017
  • Location: Shallows Edge, Secret Falls, Vale of Secrets, Relic Lore
  • Navigation: South-West of Secret Falls, on the northern edge of Red Fern Forest
  • Den Description: Hidden well within the forest surrounding Secret Falls is a small, unassuming lake. Fed by a series of tributaries that diverge from the grand waterfall, the lake is so well-concealed by the trees that it has only recently been discovered, despite the fact that several packs once called this area home. At first glance, the water seems pleasant and calm, the perfect place to take a dip. But if you wade in, the shallows suddenly drop off into a deep, deep lake – so deep, in fact, that light doesn’t reach the lakebed. The territory surrounding the shallows is a safe haven, with many natural caves concealed within broken trees and rocks worn away by decades of falling water.
  • Pack Scent Identifiers: Moss, damp earth, fresh water, sweet grass.

  • Pack Colors: #a4130b & #ecbd2b
  • Character Alignment: Chaotic or Lawful, Good or Neutral.

  • Allies:Driftwood Surge, Wild Rye Fields
  • Neutral: Oak Tree Bend, Charred Ash Draw
  • Unfriendly Vigils Keep
  • Enemies: None, yet
  • Unknown: Willow Ridge, Pookastone Scowle, Fallen Tree Cove, Aurora Heights, Clearwater Tarn

  • Core Values: Resolve, Fortitude, Self-reliability, Efficiency.
  • Motto: "Carpe Noctem" (Seize the Night)

  • Age Range: Pup - 5 years old.
  • Size Range: Pup - Medium.
  • Roles Present: 

Notes & Trivia.

  • The Edge is a refuge- of sorts- for wolves that feel like they don’t fit in elsewhere. A place for second chances and new beginnings. That being said they are still expected to pull their weight, in one form or another.
  • The leaders of the Shallows are not as forgiving as most. If a pack member screws up they are given a chance to redeem themselves, but their kindness should not be taken for granted.
  • Reyes and Askan are the first same sex pack leaders in the Lore.
  • Wolves of any gender and sexuality are accepted here. Discrimination in any form will not be tolerated.
  • Inspired by Hanging lake , Shallows Edge is almost exactly the same. Except rather than being surrounded by rock on all sides, it has far more foliage and greenery.
  • Reyes and Askan have close ties with the leaders of Wild Rye Fields and Driftwood Surge, and as such regard them as trustworthy allies.
