Wolf Tribe AU: For years the people of the small village of Ealdor have known this: to survive another winter and avoid the raiders attacks, they must produce a tribute to the wolf pack that resided in the forest surrounding their homes. The pack that contained not only wolves but men as well. Old crones spoke of men who wore wolf pelts to show their status as protectors of the pack and the forest. Of their cries answering those of the mourning wolves at night. They told stories of the fierceness of these warriors and the power that their chief tribesman exuded when seen running through the woods. So every year on the eve of Imbolc, a tribute would be carried out to the middle of the forest to ensure the protection of the pack — for a year more. On the eve of this Imbolc however, the tribute comes in the shape of a young man of unearthly beauty. The town cannot spare anything else and this gift — the elderly assure the others— is a more than substantial an offering.
When in the nights that come the villagers see two figures guiding the wolves at night instead of the one…they believe them.
