    There is sign of much disruption around the Goblins' ancestral home, I fear. As I approached under cover of darkness I smelled the unmistakable scent of mankind. Knowing that men have dull senses compared to us, I ventured closer until I could hear these man talking in their uncouth tongue. There were not many of them, perhaps three or four, yet I fear what mischief they could be planning in the home of our allies. Those I saw were not groomed and had a rank scent unusual even to men, and they were talking with great excitement. They carried a roll of paper I could not see clearly. Mens' reasons for their actions are alien and incomprehensible to me, yet I worry they plan to steal the Goblins' recently recovered precious treasure. It is the only solution I can find to explain the presence of mankind so far from the towns and cities in which they live. If so, we must find a way to thwart them for we cannot allow these men to take this treasure of unaccountable worth from our allies.

    Mauthair- "You speak of the Drouhtou, a text we wolves keep in our posession deep below these caverns, and one which lists the laws, codes, and ancient text of all wolves from a time long ago. I will take you to see it, if you so wish, though it has been shown once already".

    Mauthair- "Very well then, follow me..."

    *Mauthair leads lewy to the back of the cave, where, hidden from view, there is a tunnel that leads deep into the darkness. In the blink of an eye, lights upon the cave walls light into small streams of fire, that keep to crevaces and do not grow to larger flame. Walking down into these tunnels, there are many which stay shadowed, and only the faint howls and crys of wolves stir within them, though no other creature remains, and it can only be assumed that these sounds are of animals which have long since been and gone- but never to be forgotten. The pair turn into a room that is initially as dark as the others, but as soon as Mauthair enters, a series of the continual lights stream into flame, spiralling to the cave ceiling that is many miles above. In the centre of the room, a plinth stands, lit also, and solitary, upon it's face an ancient book lies open and shining with a glow unknown of source. The text upon it is written in wolfish, and this is the Drouhtou, containing all things of wolves and of the Great Pack.*

    "Read this if you can, lewy, and I will observe".

    *Guarding wolves warn pack and Mauthair of a presence that would not usually be welcome*

    What shall we do with him? He is our enemy, and yet he comes to us in a time of need...he must be tired and cold...Mauthair?

    Mauthair- "Bring him inside. Let him sleep on the mossy ground in warmth and comfort. Maybe he will show thanks when he wakes, or maybe not, but we cannot refuse to help him when he comes to us in such unusual circumstances. Though keep an eye on him, for we know what has happened before. I only hope he won't resent us for it".

    *Wolf keeps an eye watchful, but then goes to rest and howl at the entrance of the cave, regarding her position in the pack*.

    Poor thing.

    *awakens and stares at Wolf*

    "I have nothing left or have I already said that? I am no longer king of my wolves because of the craving hunger to control more.I have one objective left and that is to survive...You how do you do it? You talk with Mauthair and lead this great pack and still have not gone mad with power?"

    *sits up*

    "never have I seen more respect in a guild.What can I do for you Wolf?"

    Maybe I do not go mad with power because I have no desire for it...all I want to do is let the pack survive, like you do with yourself, so it could be the simple will to carry on that keeps me going. When I look around me and see my brethren and kindred at peace, that is all the comfort that I need. And we wolves are here to maintain balance with ourselves, not to mention the rest of our world, so as long as we have these simple, but requiring duties, then we can keep our minds focused. The world will always need us, and we will always need it...that's the way it goes.

    What can you do for me, you ask? It would be dishonest of me to give an answer. You had a will to survive, and power clouded your thoughts...but now that the smoke has shifted, and you have seen the extend of what this madness can do, you seek what survival itself needs- company and a kind heart. You are not indebted to me, Ray, and you never will be. All I need say to you is that you are now welcome amongst us, for we have finally seen who you truly are. The Great Pack and the Grey Alliance all welcome you, wolf-brother.

    We tend not to think that way, lewy. Speak of us as wolves, not as recruits. Besides, we will never be the only wolves or alliance guild in the world.

    *Pads quietly into cave*

    Its good to see you all again. Recently I have been plagued by cryptic visions that have kept me at bay. Can someone fill in the details to what has been happening?

    I hope these visions have not given you disturbance, Roland. Recently we have heard of threat from creatures beyond our knowledge, and so I futher hope that these things are unrelated. This threat we continue to investigate. Apart from this, we have encountered new members of the Alliance, such as lewy, and Mauthair has shown him the Drouhtou, our sacred book of the pack. Currently though, Ray has come to us in a time of need, and we are finally breaking the boundaries between us that there once were.
