At the Mountains of Destruction

At the Mountains of Destruction

Attention: Deadline for submitting/completing applications is 10:00pm EST Sunday 9/30/20



"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root."

- Henry David Thoreau

SystemWerewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition

Flavor'The Dunwich Horror' mixed with 'The Hills Have Eyes'

PlotDeep in the mountains of Georgia is the rural town of Jennings. For generations the town has resisted the influences of the modern world; the town has remained relatively untouched since the time of the Great Depression. On the surface, it is a place of economic poverty and incestuous degeneration. But to the Garou it is one of the largest concentrations of fomori on the east coast of the United States; families of inbreeding fomori have festered there for generations. This alone makes it a dangerous place.

In recent weeks, a corax spy reported to the Garou Nation that he had encountered a group of fomori cultists searching the mountains near Jennings for an ancient Cherokee artifact capable of summoning an avatar of the Wyrm known as "Ocasta" into physical manifestation. The characters comprise a pack of relatively experienced Garou that has shown up in the town to investigate and deal with the situation at hand.

ApplicationThe characters are members of an experienced pack of Garou (Rank 3). In addition to Garou, I will allow one Corax or Gurahl (Forest Walker) character if someone submits a stellar application.

Tribe:

Description: [Describe what your character looks like.][Please include an image.]

Background: [However long you want. I prefer quality over length.]

Chris
right-aligned image

Name: Christopher Paccione
Tribe: Bone Gnawers
Breed: Homid
Auspice: Philodox

Decription: Of distant Italian origins, Chris has dark curly hair but slicked back with gel. He's in good shape, verting on the slim side, He's often sporting a rockabilly look like his father used to do, but with a more modern accent.

Backstory: Growing up in New Jersey, he lived with his sister Annie and his father Frank. Despite loving his kids, the man was a scumbag,or as he would say "smarter than the system", often getting in complex schemes for a quick buck, enrolling Chris in his heists whenever he could. Overall it was fun and adventurous, only rarely the squalor of it all surfaced for the kids to notice.

One night, when Chris was fifteen the police knocked on the door to arrest Frank. Now, the father always said that the mother Abigail died in a car crash, but it turned out that she lived in a commune in Florida, so that's where the kids were sent.

At first the hippies in the commune were an easy target for the Paccione brothers, but when they noticed that the dupes had nothing of worth to be duped out of, they started to get more in line with the ideologies of that society. At around seventeen Chris had his First Change, but luckily Abigail knew everything about the Garou and managed to prevent a bloodshed, introducing the kid to the tribe of his grandmother.

Now, despite Chris is a peacemaker at heart, he is of the idea that strong measures have to be taken in these dire times. Luckily, he found the perfect Pack for this..

Oh, interesting question: since you say it's an experienced pack, how do you see the future pack members decide who is going to be the alpha? Or will the alpha be an NPC?

Name: Emilio Ignacio
Tribe: Bone Gnawers
Breed: Homid
Auspice: Ragabash

Description:
Emilio is a hispanic male in his late 30's, his hair is jet black shoulder long, either combed back or in a wild mess with tofts pointing in every direction. He also have a black beard running from his sideburns, following his jawline and ending in a point on the edge of his chin. His dark brown eyes seem weary and attentive. His skin his rugged and weathered, looking like he has spent every day of his life in harsh weathers.
His hands are rife with small scars and his nailbands are black, his nails cracked. He is draped in a brown kneelong leather duster which has been repaired with red and black string and has small beads and keychains sewn into it here and there. His blue jeans have more discoloration and actual blue in them. They are held in place by a massive leather belt, tied together with a chain and a small padlock. On his feet he has two crumbling leather boots, dusty, oily and dirty.
Background:
Emilio never knew why his parents travelled to the US. He has few memories from their homecountry and his parents died when he was eight, so it was never explained why they left, from where or where they were originally from. They had come to the US for a purpose, a calling, but it is all Emilio remember. When he was informed they had died he was given very little explanation. But after that there a was a long string of foster homes, institutions and juvenile detention centers. Everywhere Emilio felt couped up, trapped, cornered. He could only breathe out on the street, running free. He soon found likeminded. In more ways then one. His pack, who taught him about another wilderness, the one on the outskirts of the big city jungle. When he First Change came, they weren't surprised, instead they were expecting it and welcomed him into a new world, a world where he for once could feel that he belonged.
As time went, Emilio went from young pup to skilled forerunner, to new mentor of the new cubs who still occasionally appear without guidance on the streets. He got a weak spot for the lost and the underdogs. The ones who need a helping hand to get out from underneath the crushing boot of oppression in one form another. He has little regards for rules, traditions and laws. He uphold them if he can see a point in them, pay lip-service if he must and completely disregard them otherwise. The name of the game is survival and for that we need to help each other. If it sometimes require a rearringing of someones mindset, or a square fist to the face, so be it.

Richard
Excited for a World of Darkness game! I'll give it a shot!
Name: Richard Carter
Tribe: Silver Fangs
Breed: Homid
Auspice: Ahroun

Description: Richard is a young caucasian man with straw blond hair and green eyes. He's powerfully built, but in the way that comes from hard work, and not spending time at the gym bulking up. He's hale and sturdy and has a good facial structure that makes him out to come across as a pretty boy whether or not he has any intent on being that way.

In wolf form, Richard has a large body with silver gray fur and a pure white underbelly. His green eyes remain the same, though they are all the more feral.

Background:Richard prefers to go by 'Rick' to his packmates and friends. As a young member of the Silverfangs, he had soured to some of his elder's less noble behaviors and had vowed to himself to lead by example, instead of relying on his breeding or the deeds of his ancestors to command respect. While this did not help him climb the ranks quickly, his forthright nature and front-line leadership had earned him respect among his peers and Garou of his generation.

Among humans, he is a rich son of some european family that's well-to-do, though it's never determined which family that is. Even his surname, Carter, is simply assumed to be an alias to allow him easier travel in the US. Rick let his family handle that part; they seemed to enjoy that kind of thing more than he did. Instead he focused his efforts on helping his pack bring the fight to the wyrm wherever it can be found.

The leader of the pack is a NPC. While he is technically a Garou, he is also something altogether different, believed to be the product of some obscure legend regarding the Apocalypse. His father is said to have been a Silent Strider ragabash. But his mother was something.. different.

The nearest Caern is on the rural outskirts of Atlanta. Garou population of Jennings is zero. You’re going into a war zone!

Name: Luciferous Leafhorn
Breed: Lupus
Auspice: Ahroun
Tribe: Get of Fenris

Description: Luciferous Leafhorn is 6'2", slender but muscular. He wears brown and black clothes, only when necessary. He has many scars on his arms and legs from battles. He prefers to use melee weapons and leave guns to others. He has no tattoos, but is missing a few teeth. He has strong legs from running and enjoys exercise. He weighs about 202lbs and is one to never back down from a fight. He enjoys combat and is only happy when he is covered in blood, whether it's his or other's. Aside from combat he enjoys Vodka and playing cards(as long as they have pictures). He is a bit slow and is not good at social interaction. He always carries a knife with him and prefers knives that are made from bone. His most treasured possession is a necklace of boar tusks.

Background: Luciferous Leafhorn was born on December 11th, 1990. He comes from a small wooded area in Finland. He grew up learning how to hunt deer and stag, and enjoyed much the taste of blood from a fresh kill. It wasn't until much later that he discovered he had certain powers, and instructed by the elders of his pack, he learned how to shapechange into a human. This however, did not last, as about 10 years ago, he was trapped by a hunter and shipped off. He grew to not like the Humans and was uncertain of where he was going. Eventually, he landed in America. At first opportunity, he escaped his captors and fled far to the West. He eventually made contact with his own kind in Georgia. He realized nothing would be the same here in America, even learning English was bad. Thus he has spend the last 9 years here in Georgia trying to make do as best as he can. He still favors the blood of a fresh kill, but has much to learn. He wants to return home, but is loathe to trust the humans, who may or may not have kidnapped him. He enjoys running with the pack and flexing his combat muscles. He disdains human frivolities and will never pick up a book to read. He currently wants to establish himself as a pack leader, but he needs more experience. For right now, he waits to see what this strange life has for him...

Current time 2020. Yes, the characters have been aware of their Garou status for at least a decade.
