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 Dead Empress Backwater.

  • Current Leader: Viorel Valle & Eros Valle
  • Established: March 11th, 2021
  • Location: Dead Empress Backwater, 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.
  • Den 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 backwater. 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 Backwater’s claimed lands, providing moving water year round, and on quiet nights the burbling stream can be heard throughout the entire territory.

  • Viorel has led the pack since it's founding, however his co-lead has switched between the mated pair of Vayko and Clover throughout the years. Most recently, his son Eros has stepped up to lead by his side.

A rocky hillside leads down to the water’s surface where one can see the towering Mountain of Dire, while on top of the hillside stands a towering stone structure exposed to the elements of the mountain range. The towering undercut stack formation has been worn down by severe wind, making its top have a significantly larger cross-section than the bottom. Hardy trees and bushes still miraculously lay claim to the surface of the massive stone. Also carved within the rock-riddled hillside rests the entrance of the den the Sanguine Cove pack claims as their own, carefully hidden from prying eyes.

The Wolves of Paradise Falls.

  • Current Leaders: Finley Lennox Kane
  • Established: February 6th, 2023
  • Location: Paradise Falls, Kingsfall, Snowmarch Expanse, Relic Lore

One would be best to enter the small valley from downstream, for stone walls are far too steep and high to climb in or out of in most places, yet trees and plant growth have managed to grow there. A number of caves and small nooks dot the stone, the largest one providing shelter to to the wolves who call this home. At the end of the small valley are two shallow pools of water, one elevated slightly, and beyond the second, awaits the waterfall the territory is named for.
