The city of Maple Grove seems pretty unassuming to passers-by. Most of the visitors who pass through, are usually doing just that. Zooming by on their road trip to some other great city. In the autumn and winter however, the town becomes lively with tourists, most seeking out the wild apple groves, hiking trails, and ski lodges. If you're a cryptid enthusiast, perhaps the local cryptimuseum is more your scene; a shop full of the weird, mythical, fantastical things. The town's residents themselves seem just as sleepy and unassuming as Maple Grove itself. You've got your basic hotels, hardware store, two grocery stores, gas stations, curios shops, mom-and-pop cafes or stores, and maybe two or three well-known fast food places. To the northwest lies the Balcreath National Forest, a popular destination for hiking, skiing, and snowboarding. However, folks have stopped coming as of late, and no one is really sure why. It's late autumn now, and though Maple Grove has seen a handful of tourists come in, it's nowhere near the flood they're used to at this time of year. Some of the citizens welcome it, while others are hurting from the lack of business.

Deep in the Balcreath National Forest, though, one lodge is still doing surprisingly well. The Roanoke Lodge, run by a woman everyone knows as "Little Mama", is bustling with life. Toursists that come and go may not notice, but citizens of Maple Grove might recognize that some of these lodgers have been here for quite some time; months, years even, if they think about it. If they ask Little Mama, she'll simply smile and tell them that some of these folks are taking some extended vacations from their home, or, that they actually took up permanent residency in the lodge. Not like that's too big of a problem; the lodge itself is huge. Little Mama treats her patrons with her signature motherly hospitality, taking time to get to know each person who stays, and taking on some of them as employees in turn for their lodging situations if money is a little tight. In this late autumn, though, it seems Little Mama is away from the lodge a couple days at a time. And while most Lodgers and employees don't mind much, some of the new folks or the local citizens find this to be quite curious indeed.

You see, Little Mama and a couple of her close employees harbor a secret. They are part of The Wolf Pack; a secret group of people who are tasked with keeping the "unreal" hidden under wraps. The monsters and cryptids that humans have talked about in folktales and mythology are very very real, and in this particular place, they are living right under your nose. The man sitting next to you might be a werewolf. The woman walking her dog down the street could very well be a ghost. The child running and climbing trees in the playground could very well be a goat person. But they all appear human. These lodgers, residents, and asylum seekers are hiding with well-made disguises; ordinary-looking objects that they wear on their person at all times. Someone might be wearing a bracelet, another person, some earings, a third; a baseball cap. This allows them to live among the humans of the world without being detected. Little Mama and her Wolf Pack are charged with keeping the peace and sheltering the new arrivals while they are integrated into society. The Wolf Pack is also in charge of hunting down the rogues; malicious creatures intent on destroying humans, and The Pack makes sure no human sees these cryptids and rogues in the flesh. That's not to say there aren't humans in The Wolf Pack; there are a handful of trusted folks who are just plain old humans, who also help hunt down the rogues or lead the asylum seekers to the Roanoke Lodge. It helps when a few of said members are employed as Balcreath National Forest Rangers, or Lodge Employees. But wait, how do you know who's in The Wolf Pack? Little Mama personally invites each member, and gives them a specific patch to sew on the inside of a piece of clothing they wear when going out on Wolf-Pack related assignments. This patch is the head of an arctic wolf, done in geometric fractal designs, and Little Mama bestowes them on folks she inducts into the group of people who want to keep the peace in Maple Grove.


It's difficult to keep this all under wraps though. Maple Grove does have a cryptimuseum after all, and some of the citizens are leery of the 'weirder' people anyway. How will you fare? Are you a human, oblivious to all the mythical beasts walking in your midst? Are you a member of the Wolf Pack, charged with keeping the secret peace? Are you suspicious of the 'weird' activity going around and want to uncover the secret?

Well, come to Maple Grove, and let your journey begin.

◇ Welcome ◇
◇ Story ◇

► Rules ◄
◇ Character Sheets ◇
◇ Important Links ◇

1. Follow all TOS/upper rules
2. Try to post as often as you can but don't rabbit-post; let others take some time to respond.
3. Be nice to each other. It's ok for characters to start fights/drama/not like each other. It's NOT ok to be an arse to your actual fellow players.
4. Send me the character sheets titled "MapleWolf". I'll review and either accept or suggest edits.
5. This is an open-world kind of rp; I welcome collaboration in world-building from users. Please use the OOC thread to plan, and @me for any major changes.
6. No god-mod/overpowering characters. Everyone's got some weaknesses, even the monsters, cryptids, and beasties.
7. Plan out battles and talk them out. We can use OOC to do some minor outlines, such as when a fight takes place (although there will be a few surprise monsters popping up), how well the affected character(s) do, and whether or not anyone is majorly injured or dead. You cannot kill of a character with out that player's permission.

I'll update these as needed but I feel like that's it for now!

Seems quite interresting to be honest. I'll work on a CS whenever I get the time, but it's becoming late here and I have an exam tomorrow so it'll have to wait for a bit.
You feel like you know me? Don't be so sure, I decided what you know.

I'll go change a single thing or two things on Melody sometime tomorrow, but since I'm an 18 y/o Danish male I've been called to try for the military tomorrow, Americans are forced to we might be put in for 9 months depending on how we do. So I'mma turn off my devices now to get some sleep before I need to wake up early tomorrow.


I don't like waking up early in general :(
