    The plains are the area of grassland that spreads out across hill and fen, and funelled through the forest woodland leads eventually to the Gret Cave. From the platforn of the cave itself, a wolf can see how far this stretch of grassland leads, and within the long and short green to amber blades upon it, many a creature hunts for food, and herds of other herbivorous beasts gather there to graze and drink their fill. Across it also, is scattered many a boulder, carved and worn over many years with the languages past, in wolfish and goblin mainly, though there are also others from partnerships that have not yet been reforged.

    Though these plains have been mentioned before, I welcome you all once again to them- take heart, my kin!

    *Wolf shudders at the sight of the weapons, though the bow in particular*

    Much suffering doth that cause among wolves. Much suffering has it caused among wolves. If only the howls of the late and brave beings of the past could be heard now...the fall, and the near end of our kind

    I run over the grass sticking close to the tree line. I stop every couple of paces to scent the air. It is filled with the sweet scent of grass tinged with the freshness of evergreens. Now and again there is the scent of prey hidden somewher in the bushes or grass, but today they cannot hold my attention.

    I finally find something out of the ordinary. I carefully approuch it untill I recognize the human shape.

    "Cengauwist, how's the hunting?"

    it si great, i have the track of a big and probably tasty moose.
    and though it is a long time since last i hunted without weapons, i feel it is going better than i ever did with them.
    i feel a freedom i havent felt since i was only half a century old!:)p)

    so, are you enjoying the fresh air, Houldarian?
    care to join the hunt?

    snifs on the ground, not waiting for the answere, and soon finds the track of the moose heading south-east.

    hmm.. i think it went south-east. do you with your better sences than me have any other opinion?

    "Just a moment friend! Have you noticed anything out of place today. There is something strange in the wind, and I would like to find the source of it. Can you help?"

    ah, out on patrol, are we?
    hmm... well, i am not sure if it really strange, but i did notice that there have been less animals near the waterhole than usually...
    i was hoping to get a good track from there, but i could only find the trace of the moose, as there where no other tracks of big, tasty animals...

    Remember, my brothers, that we should not simply see other creatures as meerly a meal or object of hunting. They are part of this world, just as we are, and deserve the same respect.

    *During Wolf's time away from the cave, she chooses to walk amongst the long grass of the plains, basking in the evening sun of what has been a bright day. As the purple clouds glide across the horizon, I catch a call on the air from a wolf not of the pack...but not, it seems, of any...*

    "Gaumoul" it whispers. "Maudour" it calls again. Methinks too that a spirit only rarely seen at wolfish ceremonies curls around me in the air, but I do not fear it, for what it has spoken. Ancient Mother.

    *I tense as the air becomes heavy around me. I turn in circles trying to see of smell the source of this new strangeness. I spot Wolf in the distance, her stance showing tension*

    "Cenegauwist, thank you for the news, mayhap you should return too the cave untill we find the source of this disturbance. Fare thee well."

    *I dash across the greenery toward Wolf trying all the time too spot the source for her tension*

    "Wolf, what passes?"

    Nothing passes, but the spirits of time. Forever do they help us, and seldom are we without their guidance. But, anyway, I am needed elsewhere- I hear of trouble at the Gate of Norvegr, and must investigate human kind there on behalf of Mauthair.

    There are always old wounds to heal. Now I must try and ease this one.

    *Slinks into the shadows of ancient trees, and heads for the gate. Darkness falls, and there is a fell chill in the air*

    Yes, something is already amiss...

    *far away a smal shadow of a man running fast over the great plains and with a great sparklings goes over to wolf form. with a heavy breath the smal white wolf comes up to the other two*
    "Strange winds has blown across my icy moutains and my soul had no rest. for a long time i locked for a source of this so i called all my friends of the wild. after weeks no one came and my wors fear were clear. the foul humans has populated my beloved moutains! the rabbits has fleed but many have been brutally slain and lay to rot in the snow. i am i a great need of help! my fellow allies and friends are sufering"
    *runs away in the greates of speed before changing into human shape to make the great clim easyer*

    I sense no trouble there at this time, watermaid, for it is still the Gate of Norvegr that is giving us need for concern, but you may attend the wolves that all currently reside in The Great Cave, trying to find some solution to it's matters of which Bloued informs us.
