Adventure Shorts #20: The Mother Wolf

“Romulus and Remus were raised by a mother wolf”, the old man said. “But who has ever heard of speaking wolves that raise men, do they exist? I think so, and I know where you can find one for me.”

What may occur next:
  • The scholar who knows where to find the mother wolf has captured two human children who walk on all fours like wolves, but who also speak a simple human like language. He says he found them in the neglected forest behind the broken bridge.
  • The children were in fact abandoned years ago and were raised by a speaking mother wolf. She will be looking for her human children and may be angry. She may also be reasoned with.
  • A bounty hunter and his helpers are also looking for the mother wolf, intent to sell her for the highest price.

Speaking Wolf (lost race)
The speaking wolves once were the companion of man, according to the oldest legends. They came with us when we travelled between the stars, and they raised those of us who lost their mothers and fathers. Some say, that these were the creatures that eventually evolved into our domesticated dogs.
