Playing a Werewolf

greenrangerph:

For the sake of role play, certain canons will probably be established by the admin since various facets of the lore differ depending on the source.  Whether or not it’s transferable, who can transfer it, and whether more wolves can be bred are a few of the things that should be specified.  There is a lot of creative license here considering werewolves don’t actually exist.  The widespread practice, though, is that werewolf behavior is largely based on canine behavior.  Makes sense if you think about it.

were·wolf

noun \ˈwir-ˌwlf, ˈwer-, ˈwər-\
plural were·wolves
: a person transformed into a wolf or capable of assuming a wolf’s form

Origin of 

Middle English, from Old English werwulf (akin to Old High German werwolf werewolf), from wer man + wulf wolf — more at virile, wolf
First Known Use: before 12th century

In European folklore, a man who changes into a wolf at night and devours animals, people, or corpses, returning to human form by day. Some werewolves are thought to change shape at will; others, who inherited the condition or acquired it by being bitten by a werewolf, are transformed involuntarily under the influence of a full moon. Belief in werewolves is found throughout the world and was especially common in 16th-century France. Humans who believe they are wolves suffer from a mental disorder called lycanthropy. (- Merriam Webster Online)

  • Hierarchy: It is generally taken that werewolf hierarchy would mirror that of a wolf pack.  The only difference being that werewolves spend time as a human.  Leaders are Alphas.  The part that can be contested based on canon is the Beta and the Omega.  In Laurell K Hamilton lore the Beta is the Alpha’s mate who has the same power over the pack and reports only to the alpha.  While, in wolf behavior the Beta is second in command and the one who takes over the pack should something happen to the Alpha.  Omegas in Patricia Briggs lore is a special yet rare breed of werewolf who does not sit in the dominance/submissive struggle.  They are neutral.  This is more a reflection on the Omega placement in actual wolf packs.  Omegas can also be seen as lone wolves.  They have no pack whether it be by choice or by exile.
  • Power: In canine behavior everything is about your place within the structure.  This is tested by dominance and strength.  In Laurell K Hamilton portrayal of hierarchy dominant wolves are at the top of the ladder while the submissive are at the bottom.  Females share their mate’s spot on the ladder whether or not their dominance can handle it.  Keep in mind that it is also portrayed that dominants and the submissive balance each other out.  Dominants are often overbearing and protective over those submissive to them while submissive are often calm and quiet.  Changes in power, most notably Alpha, usually come by challenge or death.  A challenge doesn’t necessarily have to lead to death.  it’s simply a demonstration of power.
  • Family: It is said that wolves take mates for life, though that is not always the case.  Due to the human element in werewolves this can be extremely open ended and up to the player and or admin.  The result of werwolf mates can also be up to the player and or admin.  In some instances werewolves are incapable of bearing children due to the violent nature of shifting.  In this case, more wolves are brought to the pack with bites.  Sometimes only the Alpha can turn another and other times it’s an ability any wolf can perform.  In other instances, perhaps only a human woman is capable of bearing a werewolf through the father.  Or, it’s not an issue for a female werewolf at all.    
  • Shifting:  The timing of shifts varies depending on lore.  Some wolves can only turn during the full moon.  In other cases, shifting is a matter of control.  Older, stronger wolves can shift whenever they choose.  This would mean a time of struggle with the shift.  Younger or newer wolves would probably endure a longer and more painful shift.  In other lore, shifting isn’t even an issue.  it can be done wherever and whenever.  This should be taken into consideration when writing lore for your story as it can limit what your character may be able to do.
  • Senses & Lifespan: Werewolves are usually seen as physically superior to humans with enhanced senses and strength.  Often it is written that werewolves also have an accelerated ability to heal.  The extent of these should be taken into consideration when writing lore for your characters or story.  With the healing ability it is also widely seen that werewolves have an extended lifespan in comparison to humans.  In a more supernatural setting your werewolf could even be immortal.  Although, take into consideration that most lore will cite silver as an effective way of wounding or even killing a werewolf.

Under the cut is a masterlist of actors and actresses who’ve featured in period pieces; on screen and on TV; with few mentionable titles. I tried to focus on those who’ve either been in multiple pieces and/or in a bigger role. This list is based on my own knowledge of period pieces and I probably forgot about a million names and titles and whatnot, so this list will most likely be updated all the time. 
This list currently has little under 200 names.
Enjoy!

What Good Stories Have in Common

fictionwritingtips:

It’s hard to stay what makes a story good because there’s no standard formula to follow, but you can pinpoint some similar elements that make most stories effective.  Stories can be a great for a number of reasons, but sometimes it all boils down to basic elements that can be expanded upon depending on your story. If you’re struggling with how to improve your story, check out some of these suggestions:

Inject emotion.

Your story is nothing without emotion. We all feel something on a daily basis and so should your characters. Good storytelling needs emotion, which might require us to expose ourselves to the world in a way that we wouldn’t normally do. If you’re not emotional about your characters, your readers won’t be either. Get to the heart of every scene and pinpoint what emotion (or lack of emotion) is driving your characters forward.

Simplify it.

Simple stories are often the best stories. Don’t overcomplicate your plot because you think it will make your story more interesting. Cut out scenes that are unnecessary. Focus on the stuff that explains something about your world or characters. Sometimes getting rid of the excess will make your story great and help tighten the narrative.

Tell the truth.

Good storytelling requires you to tell the truth about your characters and human nature. It’s important you stay true to the world you’ve created and you don’t stray from its reality. If you keep adding to the possibilities of your world without foreshadowing them in some way, or you’re not honest with your readers, they will get frustrated and feel cheated. Stay true to the development of your characters and let them grow.

Keep it realistic and relatable.

In order to keep your story realistic and relatable, you need to understand your world and characters. Give your characters flaws, let them fail, and allow them to pick themselves back up again. Your readers will relate to characters that don’t get everything right all the time. We relate to characters that fail and learn from their failure. We relate to characters that grow. Focusing on character development is the key to good storytelling and it could help fix many of your storytelling problems.

MYTHOLOGY MEME(2/2) Mythological Objects

According to Greek mythology, Ariadne was willing to help Theseus find his way out of the Labyrinth. In exchange Theseus promised to marry her and take her back to Athens. Ariadne gave him a BALL OF THREAD and told him to secure one end at the entrance to the Labyrinth. He could then unravel the ball as he made his way. By following the thread Theseus would be able to find the way back to the entrance.

Theseus slowly made his way through the Labyrinth, unravelling the ball as he went. He encountered the Minotaur, and after a struggle slew the beast. Together with the others he followed the thread back to the entrance and out of the Labyrinth.
