The Woodland Wolfpack
The Wolves are a
mixed group of archers, rangers, sword-wielding mages, and well-rounded
warriors. They are united by their allegiance to Master Thysiaskyn and
their interest in archery. The skills taught by the Guildmaster are
refined by the Wolves who train together between classes and when their
master's attention is needed elsewhere.
Though their objectives and backgrounds vary, the Woodland Wolves are a
deeply unified group. They are trained as single archers or an archer company,
with skirmisher support. None of them is limited to range weapons
and can readily defend themselves in a
melee situation, but their primary focus is on the bow and wood lore.
They are able to go into any environment and survive off the
land, however the ways of the forest is their expertise.
About the Master
Master Mike "The
Longshot" Thysiaskyn is a happy and rather flighty wood giant. He
doesn't avoid others as his race generally does, but he can't help the
fact that he is easily distracted from mundane subjects. He is the
master of bows at the Academy and not only teaches archers and
warriors. He is also a bowmage and trains those of the Woodland Wolves
able to understand the arcane to mix spells with their weapons. He is
the last true Bowmage, trained by the Royal Bowmaster of the Elven
Court before his untimely death, and seeks to keep the skills alive by
teaching the craft. Any who seek this rare knowledge may apply to the
Academy and request apprenticeship to Master Thysiaskyn.
