Alright, this isn't something I've seen around here and it's likely no-one is interested in xD. But, it is my main genre and I might as well give it a try. I know I'm new, as well, so I'm guessing recognition won't be as powerful. But, it's worth a try.

For those who've never tried 'feral' roleplaying in any kind, or wolf roleplaying specifically, your character is most times a simple wolf. A dire wolf (if some roleplays permit extinct species), a timber wolf, an arctic wolf, etc. With the realistic wolf structure, nearly all carry many human traits; human feelings and emotions, the ability to speak, and the likes. They can't walk on two legs, though, or pick up things as if they had thumbs.

This is where more realistic ones stop. But, many go further into allowing wolves to have wings, powers, odd colors, designs/patterns, piercings, decorations, and more commonly elements (air, earth, fire, and water are most common-some add on). If you've been around Avidgamers you probably have seen this.

I do enjoy the classic Realistic Wolf roleplay, but today I'd like to present an Elemental Wolf idea. It does have a goal, a setting, and a plot. So, I'll go ahead and present this.

'Presently hidden off the coast of Europe is a well-sized island protected and invisible to the human eye by the natural forces guarding the ancient soil. Many storys drift around the temperate air about the discovery and wake of the island, which is known as Moonsong. The most common belief is that before life was even a thought, the moon goddess Anaïs had departed from her much more powerful sibblings, who were in the process of crafting the earth at the time. Since she was not nearly as powerful she could only sit back and watch. But an idea sprouted after the continents were formed-why not make a miniature world of her own? One completely under her power and control.

So, Anaïs did so. She copied ideas from her sibblings and changed them around a little bit, adding them to her island positioned in the middle of the mass body of water they'd formed. As soon as foliage and small animals were added, such as deer, hare, and squirrels, she began to form her own ideas. A creature powerful and elegent, beautiful and most dangerous. She called this creature the wolf. Her sibblings admired it so much that they used it as well. She perfected this creature, and favoring it most decided to have it so it was the domineering species of Moonsong.

Things were going well. The wolves were simplistic yet amazing, forming packs and working perfectly with their enviorment. Tickled to death and so proud of her creation, Anaïs just couldn't stop spoiling them. They continued to add in things, such as a protective shield around the island saving the island from human touch or eye, since her sibblings had recently created the destructive species. Unable to leave her creation alone, she began to give them more control then they should have; one major factor being minor control over the Elements. Air, Fire, Wind, and Earth. Fortunately, the elements were unable to mix; when a pair of wolves of two different elements had whelps, the whelps either inherited one or the other.

Things began getting out of hand. With this new knowledge, the wolves began to invoulentarily pick up other things, such as speech, emotions, and complex thought. They were becoming smarter, and if things kept up, soon they'd be worse than the human race. Panicked, Anaïs came down to the island to stop the wolves, but keen to her desires to take away their newly found knowledge and abilities they savagely attacked. Anaïs, having not been a full god like her sibblings, was destroyed in spite by her own 'beautiful' creations; of course, with her destruction came the halt to their rapid growth of knowledge.

However, still obtaining the rights to the minimal craft of elements, and what human-like capabilities they had adapted, they continued to thrive. However, things were not as peaceful and natural as when it had began. The packs, in a sudden urge for power and dominance, had pretty been wiped out except for one. Those not in this one pack were loners, usually in gangs trying to plot ways for the destruction of the tyranny adapted in the pack hierarchy. Those in the pack are constantly trying to move up in power, up to the Alpha positions; many will cheat, lie, steal, and even kill to obtain this ultimate position of power. Order is now at a minimum as havoc has become the ultimate outcome.'

Yeaa, it's long, I know-I'm sorry xD. Anyways, it's an idea... so.. let me know what you think. I'm hoping some people like it, it would be really fun to be a destructive, two-faced firebreathing wolf, yep :B. Or, at least, I think..

*Note* In reguards to elements, you're either born with it, or born without. You inherit one, no mixes (or else things would get out of hand). The first wolves to have it did not learn it; they expanded their knowledge on it but were given the ability by Anaïs. Therefore, since this island is closed out from the rest of the world, and most every wolf on the island was given an element, it's assumed the talent was given at birth.

However, how much control one has over it comes with how much they practice. I'd prefer if your character (unless it is an adoptable which I will soon make some) would start out with only basic knowledge and work their way up; makes things more interesting, you know?

Sounds cool - is there rules/guidlines on how the wolves obtain certain elements?

Thats great <3 Thanks everyone.

Lunitari0 - Not particularly; you're either born with it, or born without. You inherit one, no mixes (or else things would get out of hand).

I should put that in the main thread, huh xD?
