Sometimes a pup is a little too good at hide-and-seek. Renjiro was seen heading toward a thick stand of desert paintbrush, and then...he was gone. Berry Blitz, who was "it," couldn't find him. The pupsitters couldn't find him. Meracydia, our chief stalker, couldn't find him. His scent went into the ...

Razanei was a wild party boy all his life. At six years old, he stepped down as active stud in favor of his younger half-brother Ratatoskr ("Get yourself some tail, bro"), but it didn't stop him from playing the field, as they say. He sired more than 500 pups during his lifetime. He passed away at t...

It’s hard to believe it’s already time for our third generation of hunters! Our first team, The Reckoning, was the trailblazer squad. They learned to hunt in the elk-rich deciduous forest, then ventured forth to harsher climes to hone their skills. Their children in the Rule the World squad, born an...

[Traveler Tales #2: Snowy Mooncake] Who is this mysterious masked wolf? Few know her name, but many know her reputation. She travels the land far and wide, providing food to the hungry in winter, beating up quest snakes who are being rude, and returning lost puppies to their homes. === In the spri...

Our pack leader Leviathan passed away on the final night of the Seventh Dreaming Moon. He's succeeded by his son Jovis. Jovis has a lot of heritage under his paws - Lucky Taro's his paternal grandmother, Raubritter and Jackfruit Cider are his maternal grandparents - but he resembles Levi more than a...

She's a big goof. She and Rubicon were alike in that regard. He showed her all his fav...

[Wolf spotlight: Akinori, Takaya, Cobalt] (Due to the unfortunate revelation that dynasty slots are hardcapped at 100, I figured I should be copying my wolf bios here. A lot of bio info is saved in various places in this log, but not all of it.) Akinori | scout & loremaster | firstborn son of Lu...

Dewberry was originally a rescue pup, adopted from the Enclave by Chendol and Wraith. In her version of the tale, the "adoption" was very dramatic: Dewberry was fleeing from a ravenous bear, and Wraith ran in and challenged the bear to single combat (which of course she won) while Chendol whisked De...

Taro has also achieved immortality, though it's less clear how she did it. Her initial description of her encounter with Death was as brief as it was implausible. "I just beat him up," she said with a shrug. Over time, Taro's tale of her battle with Death has grown more and more elaborate. It's prac...

The changing of the guard is nigh. All our pack founders—the Reckoning hunting squad, Raubritter, Taro, and Miri—are getting old. It's soon going to be time to hand things over to the next generation. When Fenrir passed his seventh birthday, he decided to seek out Death before Death could come for h...

It's midwinter in the taiga, and our new hunting squad is making its debut, with one modification. Shikadi kept quarreling with his squadmates-to-be, so we did a pup swap: we sent Shikadi to the Dark Moon Wolf pack, which was badly in need of hunters, and we brought in a new chaser pup from Websteak...

Last winter, around the same time that our hunter pups were born, Raubritter and Mango also had a son: Razanei. Old man Raubritter has a very conservative fashion sense; a dignified russet coat and monochrome markings are all he ever wanted. Razanei thinks that's boring. He's all about being flashy...

A while back, Raubritter's realgar grandson (the one with the bright blue painted claws) got put up for sale at the trading center. We didn't have room for a new pack member; all our hunting teams were full, and our scout slots were booked for years to come. Also, the asking price was extravagant. B...

Our pack leader Rubicon died this morning. When he didn't return from a fishing trip, the scouts went searching for him and found his body. It appears he got into a fight with a fox (that boy loved fighting foxes every chance he got) who slew him and took his tail as a trophy. RIP. So Levi has ascen...

When Raubritter first became stud, we didn't think he'd get much business, since he's not T3 and the market is tough. But he's doing pretty well for himself. Some of his accomplishments:
- He's sired 238 pups, beating MICHEAL SKARN's total of 226. (Obviously the world is much bigger now and 200-odd...

We've been getting restless in the deciduous forest. It's our ancestral home, but it's also a newbie/starter biome, and after being here so long it feels like slumming. Our hunters want to test their skills. So today, the first day of spring, we moved to the rainforest, one of the two most inhospita...

Here's a hypothetical list of the nine pups I most want in the future. We're pretty full up at the moment, so most of these are long-term plans, two or three wolf-years down the road. 1. Onyx pup with selenite markings, Lucky Taro x leaderboard stud: Now that Taro's broken the 1000 stat barrier, she...

Pupsplosion! It's chaos in the den. Pups are everywhere. The pupsitters are frantic. We had to pull Fenrir into emergency pupsitter duty. He is not happy about it. Last night, Lucky Taro had a litter of five pups: three denims, a lilac, and a nocturne. A stunningly good litter. Nice work, Taro. We d...

It's career change day! Raubritter hit level 20, so he's stepping down from his position as scout to become finisher for the Phantom Divine hunting squad (which he renamed Ravenlight in honor of his raven companion, Chainsaw). Meanwhile, Fenrir is taking Raubritter's spot as scout. He's just filling...

Today we mourn the passing of a legend: Sunfall is dead. (Lucky Taro is heartbroken. She never got to meet her dad...) We're not privy to the internal politics of The Red Sun Pack, but here's what we know: Allegedly, Sunfall died in his sleep last night. It was presumably not of natural causes, si...

I was looking at lineages and realized that Mango & Sago (chaser for The Reckoning) is the sister of Lobelia (Raubritter's first stud request). In fact, they're littermates. Mango is the superior hunter, though: she has 239 out of 342 successful hunts. Lobelia's hunting record is 7/106. What's going...

Our herbalist, Top Ramen, passed away in his sleep last night. He was 7 years and 9 months old, which is fairly old for a wild wolf. He was a simple old boy; he loved digging and loved finding herbs. We'll miss him. Tripoli was originally going to be his successor, but a few days ago, she abruptly ...

noooooo the stud I had picked out for Lucky Taro died overnight. RIP Saito Hajime, who passed away at 3 years and 10 months old. According to his bio, he was thinking of retiring from his job as stud and settling down with a partner, but he never got the chance. He was level 19, just a few scouting...

The day after Miri had her pups, Raubritter decided to one-up her by officially becoming the pack's breeding male. Honestly, it's a bit of a formality at this point. Raubritter was the only serious contender after Fenrir bowed out of the race. But also, no one from the pack wants to breed with him a...

"Now that's good hunting," said Fenrir. "Shut up, Fen," said Miri. Everyone was excited. These are...

One day, Fenrir, our resident con artist and smart-aleck, announced that he was founding a new hunting squad. It was called Phantom Divine, and he was the sole member. He'd come and go at odd hours, and nobody was sure what he was actually doing out there, since he invariably brought home no prey. "...

He was sex changed to female, base changed to tawny, and then bred to a fox-wolf stud. He had four healthy pups, but none of them had their father's fo...

Pyro is growing up! She's got a new lilac coat of fur and, with it, a new name: Lucky Taro. (Most of the wolves still call her "Pyro" out of habit. It suits her. She's a total firebug.) We've also got a new pack member, Miri. She's another pedigree pup, with the Jay-Oleander-Enigma line on her fathe...
