Man's best friend: Part One

By:

Set in a heavily wooded kingdom of reknown werewolf hunters.

A princess on a hunt goes missing. Rumors of a new, more fierce werewolf surface. The party needs to find the princess before she or her seven month pregnancy are in danger.

Princess Adeline is a national treasure. Alabaster skin of reported velvet softness, eyes of deep blue, like sparkling sapphires, cascades of golden ringlets, and rich red full lips often seen in her easy smile. No mere flower of the court, her open passion for hunting, especially the dangerous game of werewolves, would have lead women of lesser beauty to have their genders questioned. She enjoyed the hunt with as much gusto as the greatest hunters, and was considered to be of greater skill than a large portion of the men of court.

Two weeks ago, she went missing.

She left for a hunt with a small group of compainions, and none have returned. Deep inside the forests of Jaegerwald, it was thought that thier skills would keep them from harm that might come from the wildlife. Rumors of plots and jealousies, secret romances and treachery have filled the kingdom since her dissapearance.

The king has issued a reward for the safe return of his daughter and his heir to the throne.

The players will only be one of a number of groups looking for the princess. Other include, but are not limited to:

The Kings Gaurd - They seek her safe return and will cooperate with the party, but will trust no one but thier own members to see the princess safely home.

Agents of UbelTrennen - Spys from the neighboring kingdom of UbelTrennen. They seek to remove the princess from the land, as hostage or corpse. They believe none other than thier Prince Zelig UbelTrennen should rule, and feel betrayed by the king for sending thier prince to “play stud” to his daughter.

Wernerunes - A secret society of thieves. More than just a reward, they seek to gain influence with the princess to help remove opposition from thier control in Jaegerwald. By aiding her in rooting out foreign criminals, thier own image will become less distasteful. They would relish the opprotunity of being her “secret police” or “spys”

=================================================

However the intreges and conflicts work out, the party is unable to locate the princess for a couple of weeks, maybe even three weeks. This is important as to the reality of what has happened.

The princess is now a werewolf.

As she is pregnant, there have been a few changes. Firstly, she can’t control when she changes into a werewolf, which, while obvious, happens more often than normal as she can change regardless of any moon or moon phase. If she begins to feel threatened, she has a primal reaction to protect her baby in the best way possible, and so becomes a werewolf.

Secondly, as a werewolf, she has a lot more intelligence than normal. She is almost cognitive. She knows she can’t be found out, as her situation would put her child at risk, so disposed of the bodies of her compainions AND covered signs of their death and travels to the location of ther demise as much as possible.

The wolf that bit her is alive still, although blinded in one eye now. He is tied to the moon and in every other way is a normal werewolf. When he is a werewolf, he makes a path towards the cave where the princess is hiding. He feels threatened by the soon to be born boy and will try to kill it, in the womb if he can.

How ever the confict ends with factions, princess and raving werewolves, the boy survives. Not as a happy, coochie coo feeling, but as a set up to something even more disasterous.

The boy is not a werewolf.

Hmmm...

So the heir to the throne is a werewolf - an interesting moral dilemma - do you kill the werewolf (and therefore royal heir) or protect the unborn prince (and therefore the werewolf)

And what about the political consequences - there's a whole campaign arc there

This gets the "wish I'd thought of that" award - 5/5

Can't wait for part 2

Hmm, I need to edit in a detail Dragonlord has pointed out:

The boy is not a werewolf. He shows no signs of having contracted lycanthropy at all, even months after the event.

@ moon: don't worry. This is more of a prequel, to explain the even more twisted part 2

The prince that "played stud"

He's not really that important. If you read more carefully, you can see these things.

Actually Agar I was assuming the princess as the werewolf - I wasn't t all certain what effect this would have on her unborn child

But thanks for the clarification anyway

This is the first plot I've ever read as it's the first time I've visited this site. I'm very impressed.

I love the idea of a warlike princess cursed with lycanthopy. Inspired! I was working on an NPC that seems well suited for such a setting: I think that I'll dust him off and move him to Jaegerwold.

The writing does need a careful review and spellcheck as the spelling and grammatical errors are distracting.

The seafaring people of the Southern Islands value their ships greatly, as do other maritime nations. However, they take the beliefs about ships a bit further. A ship's name is very important, once it is named it shouldn't be renamed anymore, ever; most renamed ships seem to fail sooner or later. Ships do not tolerate parts from other ships, a single board from a wrong source can cost sailors their lives, so it is said.

Most ships are identified as female, very few as male, though there is no tale of how their personality is identified; it has nothing to do with the name, for example. The Clarissa (a well-known male ship) is said to like good wine. So whenever sailors or passangers drink, they have to spill a glass for the ship, too. But that is only the most known example.
