The pack is the basic unit of Garou society. Though in many ways often like a family, the membership of a pack is not static or permanent; packs formed on a basis of friendship may stay together for years, while those formed for a specific purpose may disband when the need is gone. Accordingly, some pack relationships can be very loose, while others might be intense and close.
Packs usually have three to ten members, from one or many tribes, who follow the leadership of the pack Alpha. (A pack of ten would be rather unwieldy. Packs of five to seven seem to work out best, in practice.) Many packs receive the attention and guidance of a unique totem spirit. It is, indeed, often the case in Garou society (as played on this MUSH) that only packs with a Totem spirit are considered true packs.
When you have, in the course of RP, formed a pack, please contact the Totem and/or Spirit wizard with the name of your pack, the totem your pack will seek, and the names of your packmates.
