  • [The Pack] 101 Packs

    We have topics about story ideas, spirits and even particular werewolves. But we still do not have topic for collecting ideas for Packs. So here you got one. Only restriction is that we use Pack as Character structure from The Pack sourcebook for WtF 2E. ( Most you need to know is in the template of my own write-up. ) Other forumers can help you hammer needed Pack elements if you ask nicely.

    In next post will be mine Predator Kings pack write-up that follows ancient cave bear Totem. I will edit it when adding next elements to this pack. Comments are welcome.

    1 - ‘Bear Growl’ Pack

    This is cave bear primitives cult run by Predator Kings under patronage of cave bear Totem. Think of them as Wendols from 13th Warrior movie or Eaters of Dead book. Pack is stealing human children and raise them ‘as bears’ in the caves that are heart of it’s territory.

    Pack Aspirations:

    Short-Term – Raid human settlements
    Medium-Term – Clean area of Forsaken werewolves
    Long-Term – Restore the cave bears to being - May try breeding of brown bears or possessing by their Totem, for example

    Pack Touchstones:

    Physical – ‘Den’ of pack, previous cave bears cave
    Spiritual – Skull of the Totems original ( see below )

    Pack Complications:

    Stone Age Culture – Pack members are living like humans before any technology beside stone and bones tools.

    Hunting Nature: Wolf

    Pack Merits:
    Den •••• – ‘Bear’s Den’, cave system
    Directed Rage ••••
    Magnanimous Totem •••
    Territorial Advantage •••

    Secondary Packmembers

    ( Standard are 5/4/3 pools, but I changed them because of this packs profile. )

    Physical: 6
    Social: 4
    Mental: 2

    Totem: Paw in Darkness

    <Echo of roar of the raged bear in cave>
    Totem Type: Hunting Bear Spirit ( Cave Bear )
    Totem Rank: 4
    Background: Paw is prehistoric being, first created when Neanderthals killed local cave bears colony. By death of biggest male, the spirit awoken, taking it’s form. It’s survived and roused in power when first humans took the bones and relicts from its physical bodies, starting to worship it as ancient primordial god. In a year or two, first local Uratha that later become Predator Kings found the spirit – and sign the bloody compact. Werewolves will bring the spiritual hunting offerings to Paw, and it will grant ‘the might of 10 bears’ for them. It’s the same now from the millennia. Pure kidnap humans and Wolf-Blooded to run primitive cult in caves nearby that’s worship generate Essence for the Paw to survive all this years. Spirit lord also guide and watch over local brown bears population, like his own grandchildren.

    Description: Paw physically is great cave bear male – looking like weighting over 500 kg - only shrouded in darkness ( like permanent shadow ) and dirty in blood of it’s victims.

    Storytelling Hints: Paw understand that time of his kind is over. He is using Pure and humans as Essence generators, but in secret he loathes them. However, he is not stupid and knows that without constant spring of worship, he would perish quickly. He then transfer his inner rage on the civilized settlements of humans he destroys with his Uratha adopted children.

    Ban: Cannot rest in man-made den ( Paw is nocturnal creature of darkness - and Helios make Shadow Realm more dormant in day - so rest means in the light of day hours. Thanks nofather for that idea! )
    Bane: Stone weapons of the Neatherdals that killed it’s physical original

    New Numina

    Spirit can blessed itself – or other being it is touching – with supernatural strength. After activating power with touch, next roll based on Strength or Power of the target use this trait multiplied by the Rank of spirit. Each blessing costs 3 Essence and takes one action of the spirit if made on other being. If spirit is Totem for the pack, it can bless pack members from the other side.

    Shadow Form
    Spirit can take form of living shadow, indistinguishable from normal lights effect. It became two dimensional and moves on any surface just like shadow could. Change cost 1 Essence and is instant. Change back to more physical form cost the same.

      Ban (from Totem): Cannot rest in man-made den - Paw in Darkness is nocturnal creature of dark - and Helios make Shadow Realm more dormant in day - so for pack rest means in the light of day hours.

        I did a brief writeup of what the main cast of characters (a college hockey team) of the web comic "Check Please!" would look like as a Werewolf Pack.
