Hunting In 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

Fenrir was created by the @Faolan!

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!

Attacking Prey: ,,

This exchange will go on until you either find your target 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.

Example Hunting:

<@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!
