POSTED: Tue Jul 04, 2017 3:29 pm

Week One

Loners have been spotted lurking within the kingdom.

These mysterious figures have been caught causing trouble with a variety of different methods, each as dirty and dishonest as the next. Sabotage includes chasing Casa's herds of prey away, setting booby traps within the borders (stringing up unwitting Cavaliers), attacking members on patrol, and erasing Casa's border scents with their own. Members have been limping home bloody, wounded, and fearful. Dark whispers of what might come next rests over Fort Kingsbury.

The Lune and Sola have announced these dangers to all of Casa's members, and given orders to attack any trespassing loners on sight. After the first handful of unwelcome loner incidents, a patrol consisting of Isaac, Arthur, and Howland was dispatched to Halifax and surrounding areas to look for leads on the unwelcome visitors and attempt to discover why they are suddenly so interested in Casa di Cavalieri.

The Prompts: Protect the Kingdom

Cavaliers are being encouraged to protect the territory in any way possible, and the following are ways that your character can get involved.

Dismantle the dangerous traps that the loners have placed within Casa, or get caught in one. Attack and chase away trespassing figures. Scout the borders and strengthen the scent line that the intruders are trying to weaken and erase. Or even just talk theories with your pack mates, and try to get an understanding for what is happening.

Week 2: The First Choice

Howland returns with reports that the Syndicate returned to Halifax in full force and have taken Arthur and Isaac hostage! What will the pack choose to do: Send a team to fight their way in and retrieve our boys OR send in two spies to quietly infiltrate the base in the dead of night to set the Cavaliers free. Remember, your choices in this plot have predetermined consequences! The action of choice will be announced in the evening on Thursday July 13th and this thread will be updated with a quick sign up sheet for the thread attacking or sneaking into the base. The resulting thread will take place this weekend.

Week 2: The First Choice - RESULTS

Chosen Action: Spies

A small group of spies are sent during the dead of night to sneak into the Syndicate base, previously located by Howland Reeves in Halifax. As they begin to search the building for an entrance a dogmix joins the group in hiding, introducing himself as Theo. Theo claims to have tracked his missing friend’s scent to the building and is on a rescue mission himself. Offering his help he joins the team. Once into the building the group easily finds the holding area, a single guard sleeping is their only resistance. Within the cells they find Arthur, Issac, and Theo’s friend Jospehine LaBelle, free them, and escape back to Casa in haste.

New Characters:

Theodore Hudson

Theodore, who insists on going by Theo, has the heart of a rebel and and artist. At 2 years old he travels along side Josephine making ends meet through his passion of tattoo and piercing. He is a hard egg to crack, fancying himself a loner at heart. He doesn't share very freely, and holds his past close to his heart. This dogwolf considers Josie to be his sister and respects her above all else. Around her this young man can be seen smiling and pulling out all of his good manners, perhaps there is a courteous knight inside this artist?

Josephine LaBelle

Josephine LaBelle, also known as Josie, is a southern belle who rocks the fence between sickeningly sweet and a snake in the grass. At 3 years of age she has traveled North America, taking in one adventure after another. Along the way she picked up Theo and has been taking care of him ever since. Her passions include feeding anyone who will let her and making beautiful clothes for trade. LaBelle is a proper lady and caregiver to everyone she meets, but be careful not to get on her bad side because her bite is worse than her bark (which can be vial).

Week 3: Revenge

Our poll results were 14 to 9 in favor of A classic dish with a twist!A group of Syndicate scum have crossed our borders in the dead of night with two missions: re-capture and kill. Protect our lands, get temporarily caught, or save someone!

In your posts please state a number, 1 to 6, in your OOC field to indicate which Syndicate your character is going after. After Luca’s second post members are welcome to include our new NPCs.

Please do not kill in the first round to ensure everyone has a chance.



New Characters:

Tessa Raskin

Tessa is a four year old border collie/coyote mix who is unafraid of getting her hands dirty. She grew up as a member of the Syndicate, having grown up in the pack of the gang’s origin outside of Portland. After hearing about her friends aggressive behaviour in Halifax she and her friend Darius traveled to Nova Scotia to see what has become of their once packmates. She is a fisher and master of the seas. Newly healed scars line her face and an old injury has taken two of her fingertips, marking her as someone not to be messed with.

Darius Pierson

Darius is an original, don’t let him catch you thinking otherwise! At the young age of two, this coyote flaunts around with a skip in his step and a sly smile, showing off his latest clothing creations. He spends much of his time designing new outfits out of old clothes, ensuring he is always the best dressed. At a young age he took to Tess, who protected him from all who teased him throughout his youth. He still holds onto the concern that others won’t like him, so he has made it his mission to become best friends with everyone, learning everything about everyone around him and building relationships through the offering of knowledge. Be careful, this information is not always used in innocent ways!


Week 4: The Final Showdown

With some minor injuries the Cavaliers have bested the small group of Syndicate that came to retrieve more prisoners, their new found comrades helping them earn the upper hand. Since the fight things have been quiet, though by now the Cavaliers know better than to let down their guard. Wounds have been on the mend, weapons kept sharp, and many members of the pack have increased their training schedules in anticipation. Small scouting groups have been sent to Halifax and have returned noting that the base, previously used to hold our pack members prisoner, seems abandoned.

Weeks have passed in eerie silence. Some are just starting to believe that the Syndicate have left for good but of course the peace does not last. Around mid-day an urgent call erupts from the boarder, an unfamiliar voice warning of an attack. Luca and Lyris raise their voices, calling the Cavaliers to action. Leading their army to the border a well dressed male quickly introduces himself as Leoris Steinmeister, before he can say anything else a large group of canines appear in the distance. The Syndicate Leader demands the Cavaliers surrender their lands and leave the gang to do as they please, or face death. The final battle is on!

During that battle the Cavaliers fight valiantly, defending the lands they have called their own for almost six years. However, this battle is much harder than the last. They gang members fight dirty, and some are quiet strong. Many of the knights suffer wounds, but the deepest suffering of the pack comes from the loss of Clara Bates and Julien Gauthier, who die during the fight.



New Character:

Leoris Steinmeister

Leoris is very well traveled for a 3 year old, having traveled along side his family in his youth and alone as a merchant in his adulthood. During his travels he has studied the art of blacksmithing and leatherworking with a variety of tradesmen, honing his skills. Leoris is a gentle soul, who prides himself on being fair and kind to all. As a merchant he has dealt with a wide variety of canines and has learned how best to choose his words and keep his temper in check, as such it is a particularly difficult task to push his buttons! This wolf believes that through hard work and acts of kindness anything is possible, just ask and and you will have a helping paw in an instant. During his recent travels through Nova Scotia, he has had goods stolen from him by the Syndicate. After tracking the gang down, to get back his goods, Leoris stumbled upon the gang marching to attack a near by pack. Abandoning his mission he selflessly warned Casa of the approach and assisted in the battle, ultimately deciding to stay and aid the packs recovery afterwards.
