1.  Old Ironsides Trade Depot

Founded in September of 2016, the Old Ironsides Trade Depot began as an offshoot of Krokar, whose intention it was to increase their reach in the business of trade, but it eventually became the main hub for former Krokarans both before and after the pack's disbandment at the end of October 2018.

Headed by Tybalt Cormier, the motley crew of explorers that founded the depot brought with them livestock, materials, and goods from Krokar to a shipwrecked vessel that they named Old Ironsides. It is here that these pilgrims established the Old Ironsides Trade Depot, creating a foundation for honest trade, fair prices, and a favorable future.

Since its foundation, Old Ironsides has flourished and the vessel itself repaired. Where many of the residents live within the ship itself – which has been expanded to accommodate sleeping quarters – others have built their own homes or repurposed preexisting structures for their needs. But it is trade that keeps the memory of Krokar alive and well.

1.1  Territory

Old Ironsides

The primary structure within the depot. Old Ironsides was once a proud fishing ship, though time and abandonment had left it decaying on a sandbar in Portland by the time the explorers found it. Seeing its worth, Tybalt and his crew patched the old vessel up and, despite being made out of wood, dubbed it "Old Ironsides." In the years that followed, and as membership within the depot grew, additions were added to the ship in order to accommodate more sleeping quarters. Small as these quarters are, they are used solely for the purpose of sleep. With as much as there is to do in Portland to keep the depot running, Ironsiders spend most of their time outdoors and there is little need to expand this space.

The rest of the ship is used for storage and the safe-keeping of their goods, belongings, and tools – both personally owned and those destined to be traded away.

Seaside Ranch

While fishing – in all its forms – is the main strength that the Old Ironsides Trade Depot is known for, agriculture (primarily pastoralism) is an important aspect of life for Ironsiders living in Portland. The Seaside Ranch, situated further inland from Old Ironsides, provides pasture, containment, and safety for the hoofstock that reside at the outpost.

The animals are largely free-ranging, having few divisions within their expansive pasture except in necessary situations. Shelter is provided in the form of lean-tos. loafing sheds, and, with respect to the chickens, coops. While most of these animals' time at the ranch is transient – always at risk of being traded or butchered – there are a few that are member-owned who reside here as well.

In addition to the animals, Seaside Ranch is where the outpost's horse tack, carts, and wagons are also kept.

Ironside Pier

Situated just beyond Old Ironsides and stretching out into the sea, Ironside Pier offers its people the very thing that they're known for: fishing. Using rods, nets, traps, and spears, these fisher folk are proficient in their ability to catch all forms of aquatic life, be it crustaceans, molluscs, or, of course, fish!

Adept at building vessels to help take them out further to sea, this structure also provides a safe place for those residing at the Old Ironsides Trade Depot to tie up their various watercrafts once the day's fishing ventures have come to an end. These vessels, unless explicitly marked otherwise, are free for all residents to use, though everyone is equally as responsible for their care and maintenance.

It is also near Ironside Pier that members of the Old Ironsides Trade Depot come together as the day is winding to a close and eat and socialize, if they desire, around a campfire. This allows residents to discuss the day's successes – and failures – while also providing camaraderie and tranquility before they tuck in for the night.

  • Abilities:
    • Halter-trained
    • Harness-trained

She gave birth to her first male calf, Wren, mid June 2015 and her second male calf, Umiaktorvik in June 2017. She has become a calming soul to other young ones over the years and is often used by Taseko and August Cormier to help calves and more skittish caribou become more accustomed to Luperci.

Nanni

  • Owner: Communal
  • Gender: Cow
  • Birth Year: 2009
  • Abilities:

She was brought to Krokar in 2014 when the original group moved into New Brunswick and resided there until being brought to live at Old Ironsides in the fall of 2018.

Calm and steady as the river he's named for, Noatak is the most passive of the males and quite friendly and curious towards luperci. The only time he tends to get aggressive is when other males approach Anyu, who is his very favorite caribou of the herd. Second largest of the herd, Noatak is a gentle giant, hardly imposing his height or brawn with any of the other caribou. He was brought to Krokar in 2014 when Eliza Cormier rejoined her family and resided there until being taken to live at Old Ironsides following Krokar's disbandment in the fall of 2018.

Pana

  • Owner: Communal
  • Gender: Bull
  • Birth Year: 2014
  • Abilities:
    • Halter-trained
    • Harness-trained

As a youth, Pana was known for being extremely rambunctious and curious, often on the run after something or attempting to engage in play with the other herd animals. Despite being older now, Pana has retained his youthful curiosity and playfulness, though he isn't as exuberant as he once was. He is relatively small for a bull, but can still pull carts and sleds if needed. Pana was brought to Krokar in 2014 when Tybalt Cormier rejoined his family and resided there until being brought to live at Old Ironsides in the fall of 2018.

Siku

  • Gender: Bull
  • Birth Year: 2017

Umiaktorvik "Umi"

  • Owner: August Cormier
  • Gender: Bull
  • Birth Year: 2017
  • Abilities:
    • Halter-trained

Born to Magnolia in June 2017 and sired by Isku, Umi's name was given by Taseko, and means 'river', as the calf was immediately drawn to water. His personality is yet to make itself known.

Wren

  • Owner: Nellie Cormier
  • Gender: Bull
  • Birth Year: 2015
  • Abilities:
    • Halter-trained
    • Harness-trained

Born to Magnolia in June 2015 and sired by Isku, Wren has a rambunctious and playful personality. Over great persistence from Gus, Wren has become highly comfortable around Luperci and even tolerates the occasional antler roosting from Squeaks. His stubborn nature has officially met its' match in the form of one Nellie Cormier who was gifted the bull during the first melt of Spring in 2017. Nellie has ambitiously worked to train Wren for pulling and hauling heavy loads over great distances. Unlike Magnolia however, he cannot be trusted off a lead or he will bolt for a brush with freedom.

Cats


Icon Basics Additional Information

Capire

  • Owner: Lucille
  • Gender: Tom
  • Birth Year: 2013
  • Abilities:
    • High speech
    • Bilingual (English and Italian)

Capire is a very intelligent cat, and has become more confident. He speaks English and Italian (which he and Lucille speak together), and used to be able to speak German and some French, but a lack of practice meant those languages have faded. He is fluent in both high and low speech, and can read some books.

Cat

  • Owner: Elva Kai
  • Gender: Tom
  • Birth Year: Unknown
  • Abilities:
    • High speech

An old, fat, nameless black cat. Like most cats, it has little regard for the wants of others. He's blunt, snarky, and too old to put up with nonsense unless it's his own. He's proud and has an amber carving of himself.

Moo

  • Owner: Communal
  • Gender: Queen
  • Birth Year: 2016
  • Abilities:
    • High speech
    • Mousing

Moo is the last remaining kitten from Meerclar's 2016 litter and seemed perfectly content to continue living in the Cormier-Parhelion household until a large group from Krokar proper left to transport goods and animals to Old Ironsides. Moo stowed away in one of the wagons and now helps to keep the trade depot's food storage and animal feed clear of mice and other pests.

Reverend "Rev" Tully

  • Owner: Tandy McClain
  • Gender: Tom
  • Birth Year: 2007
  • Abilities:
    • High speech
    • Preaching the gospel

Reverend "Rev" Tully is Tandy's father's most trusted confidante other than his mate, Lemon. The shorthaired cat was sent along with Tandy and Mason to keep an eye on them and to offer them guidance and wisdom along the way. Much like Reverend Talbot McClain, Rev is a fire and brimstone kind of preacher. He has very strict and conservative ideals in regards to his faith, religion, and non-worshiping "heathens". He strives to keep Tandy and Mason on a sinless and God-fearing path, reminding them often of their true purpose for their missionary work and oftentimes finding Tandy's more Christ-like approach disturbing. He is very skeptical of strangers, especially those who do not have a relationship with the one true God, and is quick to pass judgement...quite the opposite of what a true Christian should look like.

Birds


Icon Basics Additional Information

Deuteronomy

  • Owner: Tandy McClain
  • Species: Eurasian magpie
  • Gender: Male
  • Birth Year: 2011

A regular church goer gave the magpie to Tandy when she'd not yet been able to shift. She spent much of her puphood chasing after Deuteronomy and scolding him for pickpocketing from the congregation. While he understands high speech and can occasionally speak a few words, this highly intelligent bird mostly doesn't what he wants.

Ethel (F), Joy (F), and Sherman (M)

  • Owner: Communal
  • Species: Indian runner ducks
  • Gender: 2 female, 1 male
  • Birth Year: 2018

These three Indian runner ducklings were gifted to Krokar in May 2018 by Sebastien Stone prior to his departure from the pack. They lived with the other resident ducks until bring brought to live at Old Ironsides in fall of 2018. The ducks, later named Ethel, Joy, and Sherman, are noisy and entertaining.

Leonard "Lenny"

  • Owner: August Cormier
  • Species: Great blue heron
  • Gender: Male
  • Birth Year: 2008

Lenny is a part-time NPC, migrating to the warmer climates during the winter, but always returning to Gus in the spring. He is fluent in understanding of high speech and can converse in a broken form of it. Oddly protective of Gus, he's often seen accompanying the Captain on fishing trips or beaking Gus's tail for attention. He's a skilled fisherman in his own way, trained to use a casting net with the help of Gus when not spearing fish on his own.

Michael

An osprey nest wasn't a rare occurrence when living by the gulf, but Michael's nest had been situated on top of the lamppost that marked Sinclair Salts docks. Like any nature loving and curious boy, Mason had begun leaving out scraps of meat and bread for the occupants, slowly garnering the trust of a juvenile osprey. Now 2.5 years old, Michael has become a constant companion for the Sinclair boy and has an exceptional understanding for high speech.

Rok

Rok was found as a chick in Palaydrian's garden, surrounded by the local Jordheim cats. After chasing off his would-be assailants, Drin searched for the nest the baby raven could've fallen from, but came up empty handed. She hand raised him into adulthood. He fully understands high speech and can speak most words when he wants to. However, Rok is a master of mimicry and would rather copy cat someone else's voice than his own raspy "roks".

Squeaks

Squeaks was found as an owlet by Gus after taking a fall from her nest. Two failed attempts of putting her back, resulted in Gus realizing the mother wouldn't accept the chick after he'd handled her. Gus "reluctantly" raised the owlet who is now capable of understanding and speaking high speech. She's an excellent courier for delivering messages, but due to her small size, Squeaks must take rests often in the tall trees before completing her journeys.

Tobias

  • Owner: Palaydrian Soul
  • Species: Red-tailed hawk
  • Gender: Male
  • Birth Year: Unknown

Originally captured and trained by Jiva's father, Niro Takekuro, Tobias comes and goes as he pleases. Jiva and Tobias hunt together, although he was raised to think it was "cheating"; there were a few he did catch on his own but most of what he got was the work of Tobias. The bird didn’t seem to mind as he was far more successful and he brought the meals to Jiva knowing his hard time he had hunting on his own. The bird had witnessed it plenty of times. Jiva was quick and agile, but when it came to that last bit of speed he was always too short of killing an animal.

Zalia

  • Owner: Palaydrian Soul
  • Species: Northern harrier
  • Gender: Female
  • Birth Year: Unknown

A gift from her former mate, Jiva Takekuro. Zalia suffered some injuries from a fishing net that had ensnared her, but Jiva and Drin took care of her fast recovery until Palaydrian could see her companion soar in the skies. Zalia has a limited grasp of high speech and has been trained to follow basic commands. She and Drin communicate through a form of low speech they've formed together.

Sela and Amara

Amara and Sela are two landrace goats, and long-time companions, of Milos Parhelion. Amara is noisy, curious, and quite playful. She will trust just about anyone with food, but will give them grief with her nosiness and her teasing antics. Because an old injury she sustained out in the wilds never properly healed, Ama walks with a limp and is often seen toe-touching the ground on her left rear leg. Sela has grown into an adventurous and deeply curious young doe. Though not as noisy or demanding as her mother, she rarely backs down from a challenge and is known to frequently escape her enclosure. Sela is friendly, playful, and usually one of the first goats to greet visitors.
