Winter, Year 18

In Boreas winter comes slowly at first, though as the season fully settles in it becomes apparentl that across the continent snowfall will be much more consistent and heavy than usual. Even the farthest reaches of the west and the south will be blessed with snow, though not to the extent of the north, which seems constantly buried under multiple feet of snow. Though the season will be marked by frequent snow, it will be generally mild as far as winters are concerned, with temperatures consistently above average.

In Auster, summer is another mild one, markedly more rainy and humid than usual for the region. Temperatures here will also tend to be lower than usual. Beware of the coasts though, where tropical storms become more and more common as the season progresses - the ocean is a dangerous place to be for much of Auster's summer.

Boreas

The northern portion of Boreas is a harsh, inhospitable landscape. Strong northern winds increase the farther up you travel. Snow also accumulates more and more as you migrate north. Blizzards are common in this area, and the prey that manages to survive the temperatures and weather here are quite often sturdy and difficult to bring down. Coming back for a second ... by Ruga 11 hours ago
North
Eastern Boreas is fertile and green. A massive mountain range rises up in the east and travels into the north. Several rivers and water sources have taken up root in the east, supporting a diverse ecosystem of prey that includes waterfowl and fish alongside typical forest-dwelling creatures. The east is one of the best hunting areas in all of Boreas. Remorseless by Manea 10 hours ago
East
Southern Boreas is lush and moist, home to deltas and grand river systems that lead directly to the open sea. The south is mostly flatland, though not quite as flat as the west. A few rolling hills and dense forests add variety to the deep south. Islands just off the coast are within easy reach. Prey is plentiful here and some marine animals swim further inland - travelling the network of deltas and rivers - than any other coast in Boreas. If I Said I Was Fine, Wou... by Remus Today, 03:17 AM
South
The western lands of Boreas are described most commonly as dry and arid. Though some of the land has managed to sprout as green and fertile, much of it is brown and dry as a bone. The west is mostly flatland, with very little rise or fall in the landscape. The winds rip through here and can batter anyone who isn't prepared for them. i gotta be honest guys by Arne 10 hours ago
West
Rocks occasionally grace a lovely plain, and though the ponds and verdant blades create a pleasant scenery it is stained with the blood of many. Roaming wolves, rogues, and pups may be forced into packs if they are unfortunate enough to find themselves here. However, this is also the place of battles - major ones such as pack challenges, ownership challenges, and death matches, must take place here though many other fights may also take place on the battlefield. Pack wolves under Tier 2 must steer clear of the battlefield unless participating in or spectating a fight. Recruitment Drive by Corbie 01-31-2023, 03:41 AM

Beyond the Bifrost

Auster is a land that only became accessible to the wolves in Boreas following a huge storm in the summer of Year 4. A large strip of sand connects the two continents. Largely unexplored, the southernmost continent of Auster boats plentiful game and abundant wildlife. Though adventure certainly awaits those who wander south, travelers ought to be wary of the dangers that might lurk in these unexplored lands. Soak up the Sun by Hanzō 1 hour ago
