When solid ground grows soft with emerald moss and rivulets of black mud, and coffee-colored water pours slowly around the trunks of densely carpeted trees, this marks the beginning of Laod Mor: the swamp of Blossom Forest. Time itself seems to slow to a soporific crawl . . . the humid jungle air grows stagnant, thick with the scent of rich flooded earth and an abundance of green things that can be found nowhere else—except perhaps Caidir Olc. In some areas of the swamp, water rises so high the only way to cross it is to crawl across fallen logs or massive roots arching from their liquid beds; in other places a wolf might wade easily through the mire—or find a fortunate stretch of mostly dry earth. Pieces of the great river, Glaesfaet Sceawere, also slice through from time to time: small falls that feed into surprisingly clear pools, only to terminate into tar-like pits. Of course, Laod Mor’s beauty shines brightest at night. Here, fireflies gather at all times of the year . . . suffusing the shadowy place with millions of twinkling lights.

Those looking to hunt here of course find a myriad of water prey, including caiman, turtles, fish, crayfish, otters, and toads.


Bring Me to Life (Odin)

Only You Are the Life Among the Dead


Slim stilts carried the female through the trees, enjoying the cool fall breeze that ruffled her fur. Summer was her favorite season, but fall was better than the winter at least. The femme was snow white, but her pelt was not built for harsh winters. She always felt that she was cold when winter came, and it made her not want to leave her den. But for now, she would enjoy all the time outside while the weather was still comfortable. The leaves around her were changing colors, getting ready to fall to the ground before they would regrow in the spring. Khaleesi was already looking forward to the spring, knowing that the weather would get warmer then. And with the warm weather everything would grow. There would be pups being born, and other beings would give birth as well. Everything would be new in the spring. But for now, she needed to prepare for the winter.

Khaleesi decided that she needed to restock all her herb stores while there was still enough foliage alive for her to use. She wasn’t sure how this winter would be, and she wanted to make sure that she was prepared. She had also used up some of her plants in a lesson that she gave to the pack, teaching them some basic plants and what they could be used for. Everything she showed them was common and easy to find, so she was not worried about running out. Snow white paws padded carefully through the wet and marshy area, heading towards one of the waterfalls that she had explored before. All the water here gave the plants amply supply to grow and thrive, and she knew that her taking some would not affect the ecosystem here. Green orbs began to explore the area, looking for the characteristic signs of the plants that she needed.

As she began picking through some of the plants, her mind began to wander. Khaleesi was still shocked sometimes about how much the lands had changed, and the different wolves that came from it. There was still a lot that she didn’t know about, but her recent trip to Caidir Olc had shown her that there were different forms of wolves that she had not imagined. She had been surprised to find that there were many vampires within the pack, but unlike the reputation that came with them, she had had no trouble there. But she wondered what it would mean for the rest of the population. She knew that there was evil out there, that was clear to her after she had been kidnapped as a pup. But that had been just a normal wolf, what would happen if there was an evil vampire? But surely there would be enough good in the world to make sure that everything was okay. She couldn’t imagine the world with more evil than good in it, and she decided that she wouldn’t dwell on the negative thoughts, instead focusing on her finding her plants.
