'Souls RPG
Yearbook 2013


Ichika no Ho-en Vinátta consistently remained one of the largest and strongest packs throughout 2013, with many new and returning members filling our ranks. Last year's baby boom gave us an influx of young adults eager to find their place in our hierarchy. We welcomed the birth of four new litters, expanded our land with a sub-territory contest, celebrated the Ostara Spring Festival with an egg hunt, marked our first anniversary with a grand feast, and hosted a week-long event with visiting dignitaries from Cercatori d'Arte and Casa di Cavalieri. Tensions with Sangi'lak rose despite diplomatic efforts, but relations with nearby New Dawn continued to strengthen.

It was a tumultuous year for the Vikings, marked with joyful tidings and broken hearts alike. The Virding couple broke up in May; Lilin Soulstorm ended her mateship with Saul Stormbringer and stepped down from leadership, only to return at the end of the year as a regular member. After her daughter assaulted her and left her with a broken wrist, sub-leader Colibri Haki gave her heart to fellow founding member Niernan Stormbringer, and the new couple were blessed with a litter in the autumn. Palaydrian Soul was left a widow when Jiva Takekuro was lost at sea, but overcame her depression and drug dependency to rise to the top of the Vald tier by winter. The Vikings had their share of scandal when Shiloh Dawnbringer and King Silvano Sadira's affair came to light, and were shocked again by the forbidden romance that blossomed between Ascher Stormbringer and Sangi'lak leader Sequoia Exultare. Several younger Vináttans - Carya Aston, Rúni Stormbringer, and Aspen - sadly fell prey to insidious loners and learned a hard lesson about the dangers of the outside world.

Despite all that transpired, the most memorable event of 2013 would be the Ironside Conflict. Over the summer, a band of vengeful canines calling themselves the Ironside Coalition targeted Vinátta with the goal of reclaiming their former member, Glasgow. They resorted to underhanded tactics such as harrassing non-combatants and kidnapping Shiloh's puppies as bargaining chips. The Vikings rose to the occasion when Saul Stormbringer led the able-bodied warriors into battle, and soundly defeated the rogues to make their home safe for the years to come.

It was only knowledge of what he had waiting at home -- leadership, a second family likely more important than their own -- that held her back. Otherwise, she didn't know what she would have done. Kept him here forever, maybe.
