She presented the Elders of each tribe with a thoughtful gift, before leading all gathered in a right that reaffirmed their purpose in fighting against the Wyrm.

The story moot continued with many tales, and promises of future moots which will delve deeper into the history of the sept.

  • Matt will be starting long distance runs about the bawn in lupus soon, possibly once a week, or every other week, with the intent to find and explore the bawn as much as possible. Those interested in joining, please speak with Matt.

General Knowledge Edit

Moot Edit

  • A story moot was held and many fine stories (and one very long epic poem) were told.
  • Yi told the story of Salmon's Leap, her first pack, at the Storytelling Moot.
  • Caern/Sept
  • Jacinta performed Rite of Contrition, apologizing for words spoken in anger in the caern.
  • Jacinta performed the Rite of Defiance for the Sept. Many members were present.
  • Jacinta led a revel, following the Rite of Defiance. The group found and defeated a trio of fomor bears. Walks the Middle Road, Stills the Dance, Ferrets out the Wyrm, Culls the Herd, Moon Otter, Dragon's Fire, Clenches the Sun, Cracks the Nut of Truth, Lost and Found, Untangler, and Spirit participated in the Revel.
  • Jamethon has overseen physical improvements to the Sept Compound. He has also made decisions regarding new rules and regulations, including but not limited to reenforcing the smoking ban on the Bawn or in the Caern, (save for rituals pre-approved by the Master of Rites).
  • The farmhouse's roof got skateboarded on. The farmhouse's back door remains in one piece since its last replacement, causing bets to be lost.
  • The rather elusive and prickly Uktena, Fernando, has been less elusive lately (if no less prickly), and has let it be known that his Chiminage to the Sept is to scout out the base of the Black Spiral Dancers and see that a war-party is put together to fight it once it is located. Several others were already involved in investigating the Dancers before Fernando became involved, and the Uktena ragabash seems to accept that it's better to coordinate than to work separately.

City Edit

  • The sewers backed up in several places in St. Claire. This earned the Walker cub, Chris, the name of ~Shit-Storm~, somehow.

Tribes Edit

  • The Walk appears to be attracting Shadow Lords: Moon Otter has returned, Anvilhead has showed up, and Felix ~Spits-Out-Nails~ won't leave. There is ongoing research into how to reverse this attraction.
  • The Shadow Lords have recently reclaimed Thunder Cave and nearby areas as their old tribal territory. This area was formerly under the lone watch of Kenneth Far-Cry.

Packs Edit

  • Aubrey ~Spirit's Touch~ has joined the Vendetta pack.
  • Rumors swirl about the Havoc pack, most wrong or unconfirmed.

People Edit

  • Jacinta returned from wherever she went. She is now calling herself The Chill Wind that Heralds the Oncoming Storm.
  • Jamethon continues to be Warder of a Caern that while seeing threats from without, continues to stand strong and defiant against them, and be a bastion for the Wyld. He continues to successfully open each and every Sept moot, every month. As well, he has checked over visitors and new member of the Sept for taint personally and has yet been shown to be wrong about his allowance or denial of any particular Garou onto the Bawn.
  • Ruth ~Trips-Over-Paws~ of the Children of Gaia became rited as a Cliath and is now ~Cracks the Nut of Truth~.
  • Yi performed the Rite of Passage for Lara, now known as Clenches-the-Sun.
  • Kenneth has stayed around Thunder Cave, but moved a claim of territory down to sections of the woods down in Wolf Woods Nat'l Park. (OOC Info: Deserted Highway, Owl Woods, Darker Woods)
  • Justin has returned. He is has been badly scarred by fire (apparently a battle scar). He was in Russia but is now back. He is making noises about looking for a pack.

Instruction Edit

  • Over the last few months Jamethon has taught Moot Rite to Vera, Mother's Touch to Alesia, and has learned the level 3 ritual: Rite of the Totem, which he has successfully performed twice already.
  • Reggie has learned Baptism of Fire from Blackriver.
  • Touch Deer has been around the past few weeks, evidently teaching a Gift to Silvertip.

Challenges Edit

  • Cole went to Jamethon for help with his Challenge to Yi. Because of James' help in the form of a trickery Talen, Cole found himself in a superior position and succeeded in that Challenge.
  • Kaz ~Ears to the Ground~ won the Gnawer challenge from Olga ~Fat-Ripper~ and is now Gnawer Elder.

Cubs Edit

  • Cubs have been showing up at the farmhouse, some from the Walker safehouse: Chris ~Shit-Storm~, Mick ~Generous~, Matt ~Found~, CJ ~Silver-Hand~, and others brought via other venues: Salee (brought by Salem), Adalyn ~Learns-Quickly~, Vika ~Demands-Answers, and the oldest cub in anyone's memory: Stanley ~Old-Man~, rumored to be at an age of 83 or was it 43? The flood in cubs meant that Stacey had her work cut out for her. but no one can accuse her of slacking: CJ, Stanley, and Kristin have not been seen of late.
  • Fernando and Basil followed a Unicorn kinfetch and found a meat factory / abattoir full of livestock. The only other occupant was a teenaged boy locked in the freezer. The boy was taken to the Gnawer safehouse on the assumption that he was the cub, just in time to stop him dying of hypothermia, and the Gaians have been informed.
  • Three new cubs have come to the Fury House. Nike has taken Alpha of the Black Furies. Nike has taken Alpha of Havoc, a war pack. Ezekiel Hess, ~Speaks-When-Needed~ has come to join the Furies and has been given tasks for Chiminage.
