The natural order has failed us all.For months, the rain has not fallen in Anikira. And while the wolves struggled to survive and exist, wildlife around the continent has come to an untimely demise. The greenery has wilted and faded away, and disease has run rampant throughout many species, eliminating more prey than the scientists ever anticipated. They stood back and allowed nature to run its course for long enough. It was time for an intervention. One by one, the naturalists gathered their materials. Armed with hundreds of doses of tranquilizers, a mixture of ketamine and midazolam, teams set out in pairs via boat to the nature reserve. The population was struggling, and they could not allow such an endangered animal to fade away from the world again.And so they came via boat and plane. Scientists from all over the world monitored the reserve, carefully watching over the teams to ensure they did not interfere unnecessarily with the ecosystem. But something had been introduced into Anikira, something that they had never seen before. And they needed to stop it, before it eliminated the entire species. The humans arrived in full bio-suits, unsure if the toxins would affect them. So far, the unknown pathogen had laid dormant or had not mutated to affect the wolves, but they would have to examine and treat any of the canines that could be carriers of the pathogen. It seemed that the combination of extended drought and climate change had created a prime breeding ground for whatever strain appeared; it needed to be destroyed; before it was inadvertently unleashed on the entire world. But the scientists took an oath to preserve the natural order of the Anikiran Conservation Trust, which left them with few choices. The wolves would need to be relocated until their teams could ensure the continent was safe to be inhabited by the species once more. Wolves were quartered off based on geographic location in order to maintain the relationships of the packs that developed in the reserve.Some were found to be carriers of the disease, and these wolves were quarantined at a separate location to eliminate the likelihood of the pathogen spreading. Most were deemed healthy, and several others were treated for various other ailments or injuries prior to release. Though they had opted to keep the projects separate, they had no further choice. There were no other areas large enough to house or maintain such a thriving population. It was time to introduce the Anikiran wolf population to the Southern Isles experiment. One by one, the wolves were tranquilized and transported south, set carefully upon the island in various locations so not to shock the current resident population more than what was already necessary. The Isles Wolves were fewer in numbers than ever before; perhaps, the mingling of these species could benefit their project, after all.NOTE:All wolves on the continent were given a cocktail of Midazolam and Ketamine via tranquilizer dart. Yes, even yours. Pups will not have been given a sedative, as they are all too young to put up much of a fight. If you choose, any injuries or infections may have been treated or operated on by a veterinarian during this process, though the wolf would have remained asleep and would not remember any procedure.Waking up from this tranquilizer is different for every wolf, though they will all feel a sense of “drunken” wooziness, achy muscles, and grogginess. Please, scour the internet, though be reminded that this cocktail was specifically chosen in order to minimize any side effects. Click the following examples of videos of dogs waking up from anesthesia for inspiration: CLICK ME, CLICK ME, OR CLICK ME.Each of your wolves has been assigned to a particular location on the Southern Isles based on the location of their last thread in Anikira. Please refer to the following spreadsheet for where your characters will be located. You are able to sort by your username to find your list of characters as well.
Please note, when you go into the Google Spreadsheet, you will want to go to the Data dropdown at the top, click Filter Views, and select your name. This way you can view your specific characters at the same time as anyone else viewing the spreadsheet. If you want to see the full list, you will have to go back into the Filter Views and select None to see the entire list again.

Harbinger Eroan’s faction (Foeir) controls Nybur and Navure. Traeliorn’s faction (Siniath) controls Eonhu and Mogiya. Your wolves will interact with the Isles Wolves there if they choose. Crossing the warline will be difficult for the Anikiran wolves, but not impossible; they must simply respect the fact that the Isles wolves do not cross the line. They are at a ceasefire, and the Anikiran natives must be respectful of the culture and tensions between the factions. Refer to the post below for more information on the history of these factions. Eroan and Traeliorn are both NPCs. If a player wishes to interact with them, contact the staff.
