The Town (Move your mouse to reveal the content) The Town (open) The Town (close) Estwald A small town, surrounded by a forests and mountains. Once you break the tree line into town, you're almost in a different world....a world with 3,000 people. The small town has many resturants, a mall, two hospitals, numberous apartment complexes (some high scale, and some not), and a few suburbs. In the 1800s it was founded as a Utopia that quickly failed. Edan Axton, Sable's great great great grandfather, founded the town, and prayed every day that it would grow and populate. Within two years, the town was cutting down trees to make room for more people, it is often said Edan sold his soul for his Utopia to work. The only problem was that almost 5 years after the town was booming, a great sickness took over the town, and the women had trouble bearing children. Once that generation was all but dead, the problems suddenly disappeared and the town was refounded under the name Estwald. Hunters/Shifters (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Hunters/Shifters (open) Hunters/Shifters (close) There really is no reason to ever leave Estwald, but should you choose to, beware of the hunters. Since the first time the pack leader changed, they appeared. Almost as if they knew there was a shifter in the area. There are roughly 30 to 50 hunters patrolling the forest, along with the wolves. They view the shifters as an abomination and will do anything they can to kill them. The hunters are constantly trying to warn the town about "werewolves" and how to spot them. The only problem is, with no valid proof, most people just think they're insane. As of yet, they do not know who any of the pack members are. The pack also has to worry about other shifters. Throughout the world, there are other packs of shifters. Some are like Sable's pack, where they only want to protect the people in the town. While others, will kill anything human and nonhuman alike that falls into their sights. Few shifters have treaded into Estwald and been this type. The pack is very open to any shifter, but should they start displaying these characteristics, they're killed or sent away. The Pack No on really knows what caused the transformation from human to shifter except Sable, who makes a point to hide it from everybody. The Pack Leader almost always knows the person for years before they transform. It tends to be the people Sable has a strong connection with that change. There have been only a few occasions where he hasn't known them, and that's because they were meant to be mated to someone in the pack. The wolves do not know who their mates are just by looking at them. It takes time for that kind of bond to develop; the only way to be sure is when they have their first kiss. Whenever someone new starts to transform the whole pack can feel it happening. For over a decade, the pack has been protecting Estwald from hunters and bad shifters. For the most part they've been doing a good job, but the hunters are getting smarter, and the skeletons in the pack's closet are getting louder and harder to ignore. They have to make the decision of being honest with what they are and being hunted, or hiding and ripping themselves apart. They must either face their biggest fears head on, or run away scared. Each member has an internal struggle that pushes and pulls which choice is the one to choose. Sable can only do so much for his pack. He just hopes that he has raised them good enough as wolves to keep their morals in check. A fight within the pack itself, is having members strong enough to withstand the change. Sometimes a shifters first change is denied them for one reason or another. There was something flawed in them, be it mental weakness or physical weakness. It stops them from completely transforming, trapping them in a lycan-like state. The massive amount of pain they're in causes them to be driven to madness. These types of transformation are hunted and killed, for mercy and to keep their secret.
