Hunting In WolfSpirits

 

Welcome

TO WOLFSPIRITS

Hunting In WolfSpirits

Whether you are hunting small game by yourself or large prey animals with the pack, hunting is fairly straight forward. We use a bot, Fenrir`, that utilizes a simple input/output format that recognizes characters and rewards experience points (xp) through their success in tracking and hunting prey.  All you need to hunt is to know a few basic commands and when to use them!

Experience & Levels

Just to get it out of the way and to make sense of some of the level-restricted commands, let’s talk about levels and xp. Your character gets xp for every successful tracking attempt and for every successful hit upon its prey. Characters will also be given xp for their progression in the pack and through rp events. Every character starts out at 0xp and level 1.  Levels are capstones for your character that give them added bonuses to their attempts to track and attempts to strike at prey during the hunt. These bonuses and the xp needed to progress into the next level are as follows:

0-100        Level 1     +0 to rolls
101-250    Level 2     +1 to rolls
251-450    Level 3     +2 to rolls
451-700    Level 4     +3 to rolls
701-1050  Level 5     +4 to rolls

Check your experience by sending the command !exp in #Battalia.

WolfSpirits Hunting Channel – #Battalia

A hungry wolf at all the herd will run, In hopes, through many, to make sure of one.

Command: !scent

Fenrir will provide you with the scent of prey or no scents may lie on the wind. You may !scent again if no prey scents are provided.

Command: /me follows or /me does not follow

Congratulations! Fenrir has gifted you a scent trail. If you would like to pursue the prey item he has provided, use the command /me follows. If you would like to continue searching for more suitable prey, use the command /me does not follow and !scent again.

Giving Up: !giveup

Has the hunt gone on too long? Accidentally started a hunt you are not prepared for or permitted to finish? The command !giveup will end the hunt, allowing you and others to pursue new prey.

Continue to the Hunting tab for hunting commands once you have followed your prey.

Cache Command: !cache

All prey animals killed with Fenrir will be saved in the cache, which can be viewed with the command !cache. Example:

!cache
<‘Fenrir> mouse
<‘Fenrir> vole
<‘Fenrir> Northern_Pike
<‘Fenrir> Northern_Pike

Eat Command: !eat #

If your wolf eats the prey it catches IC, please take care to remove it from the cache using the !eat # command. Replace the # with the number of the prey item in the list. Example:

!cache
1. <‘Fenrir> mouse
2. <‘Fenrir> vole
3. <‘Fenrir> Northern_Pike
4. <‘Fenrir> Northern_Pike
!eat 3
Faolan eats from the cache.

After this command, your wolf will have “eaten” or removed the 3rd prey item in the cache. In this case, the 3rd animal was one of the Northern_Pike.

Attacking Prey: ,,

Once you have chosen to pursue the prey using the command /me follows , you begin the hunt. Using the command ,, will cause Fenrir to roll against the prey for you. This exchange will go on until you either catch the prey or lose it. Example:

<@Atraya> Leaps after the otters flank in hopes to knock it off balance, causing it to tumble and become more of a formidable target for her to grab for!
<@Atraya>,,

Securing Prey: !secure

Occasionally, the prey may attempt and succeed in escaping your wolf! The hunt leader is the wolf who sent the !scent command at the beginning of your hunt. If the prey attempts to escape, the scent leader must enter the command !secure to prevent the prey’s escape.

<‘Fenrir>Rune’s roll has allowed the to attempt escape. Hunt leader, roll !secure to keep it from escaping!
!secure
<`Fenrir> Rune has secured the prey. The next person in order may attack!
          or
<`Fenrir> Rune has failed to secure the prey. The hunt has ended. New prey must be scented!

Giving Up: !giveup

Has the hunt gone on too long? Accidentally started a hunt you are not prepared for or permitted to finish? The command !giveup will end the hunt, allowing you and others to pursue new prey.

Command: !preylist

Gives you a current list of prey you can hunt / track

Tracking Command: !track[animal]

To start to track after your prey type out its name with a ! in the front of it. For example, to attempt to track and hunt a rabbit type out !rabbit in an action. Example:

* @Faolan pads along the course of stream within the hunting ground and attempts to track a !riverotter
<+`Fenrir>  A tracking event has been setup to find a RiverOtter with an added difficulty class of 3 and a needed number of successes of 4 to find. Good luck!

Tracking Command: ^^

From here, tracking is very similar to hunting. You will make a post attempting to track your prey followed by a separate line with the command ^^  Fenrir` will roll for your prey and for you (including your bonuses) and will generate whether you succeeded in following after the trail or whether you failed. There are critical successes and failures that can be generated. Not every prey/target will have the same number of successes needed to find it, but each target will have a total of 5 failures before the wolf loses the trail! Example:

* @Faolan would take stock of the scents and attempt to find a viable trail to follow.
<@Faolan> ^^
<+`Fenrir> The RiverOtter outwits Faolan and extends its lead upon the tracking wolf or wolves. The RiverOtter is on 1 out of 5 failures needed to escape!

This exchange will go on until you either find it or lose it. If you find it, then Fenrir` will give you the option to report back your findings via rp or continue on with hunting it. Example:

<+`Fenrir> Faolan has found and followed the trail of their target well enough to continue tracking. The tracking party is on 4 out of 4 successful attempts needed to complete their task.
<@Faolan> ^^
<+`Fenrir>  The RiverOtter has been successfully tracked. Report back of your findings or begin the hunt!

Hunting in this scenario is the same as usual. You will post your attempt at striking the prey followed by the command ,, and Fenrir` will generate a success or failure for you and the other wolves to respond to.

Giving Up: !untrack

Has the tracking session gone on too long? Accidentally started a tracking event you are not prepared for or permitted to finish? The command !untrack will end the tracking attempt, allowing you and others to pursue new prey.

Fishing Command: !Solfish or !Riverfish

Using the command !Solfish starts an attempt to catch a fish in the Lake of Solace while !Riverfish starts an attempt to catch a fish in running water in the Territory.

Attacking Fish: >))>

Your wolf needs three successful hits, using the >))> command to catch the fish, but if you miss three times, the fish escapes. Good luck!

Giving Up: !giveup

Has the hunt gone on too long? Accidentally started a hunt you are not prepared for or permitted to finish? The command !giveup will end the hunt, allowing you and others to pursue new prey.

‘Fenrir was created by the @Faolan!

Hunting is done through interactions with ‘Fenrir, a bot located in the channel #Battalia .

Please report any issues, found or observed, to Faolan, the Alphas, or Betas.
