1.  Annual Summary

1.1  2014

Krokar only just formed in July of 2014, but it was a busy year. Their previous home flooded, causing the loss of much of the family's livestock and supplies. It prompted rescues, salvage, and finally the decision to move. Gus and Lucille left first, back to a land they previously traveled through: 'Souls. Along the way, they met new canines, and many of them chose to join the growing group. Eventually the budding pack decided on a new home with several lakes and rivers, along with livable human structures.

Buildings were repaired in their new home, and some new ones were built; the territory was explored and claimed, and pack members got to know each other. The pack as a whole also learned how to work together, which is still an ongoing process. Krokar initially claimed a small section of territory and soon found that they could handle more, and so the borders were expanded.

The beginnings of relationships with other packs were also started. Lucille and Gus personally visited Vinatta, and Gus visited New Dawn, while members of Anathema, Sapient, and Casa di Cavalieri brought gifts to Krokar's borders. A trade was agreed upon with Sapient.

The pack's first litters of puppies were also born: Adonis and Aphrodite Donovan to Piper Dae and Aindrea Donovan, and Gregory Pendragon to Catriona Donovan. The Cormier family is also back together with the arrival of Eliza and Tybalt.

Though the pack has put in a lot of work, there is much still to be done, and 2015 will be even busier than 2014 was.

1.2  2015

2015 was a lively and eventful year for Krokar! After bringing in the new year with their first annual Winter Feast, Krokarans worked hard to keep their territory safe, their structures sound, and their stores full, all the while welcoming new members, new caribou, and new Guppies into their folds.

Keeping the stores full proved difficult at first. Thefts from the barn led to an investigation, and it was discovered that a pair of raccoons were at fault. Spring brought floods to all of 'Souls, and Krokar was not spared. Buildings were damaged, especially the Ail Po Barn, the home to a colony of cats. Krokarans bravely went into the crumbling building and rescued the cats, and their kittens too! The colony was set up temporarily in a barn near the village while Ail Po was restored to its former glory.

The flooding delayed a trade deal that was brokered in 2014 between Krokar and their neighbor to the east, Sapient. Once both packs recovered, they were able to complete the first major trade between them and kick off their budding relationship. Krokar also began to make friends with their neighbors to the south. Plans to institute a livestock breeding program were brought to fruition in May, when Mable the hairy cow was bred with Vinátta's bull, and again in August when proposals of trade and pairings was discussed between Milos and Aspen, Vinátta's Stable Manager.

They also received several visits from an ambassador from Casa di Cavalieri, as well as a trading party from Salsola. While Casa's visits were always friendly, there was tension with Salsola due to personal issues between their leaders and Semini. In an effort to cool down these tensions, Semini spent some time building a literal friend-ship with Cour des Miracles.

Semini was not the only pack member to be affected by personal issues. Storm Cormier, adopted brother to Gus, disappeared from the pack to confront the unresolved problems of his past. He returned with grave injuries, but with the help of Pepper and the support of Krokar, he was able to make a full recovery. Eliza Cormier's friend, Peony vanished as well, and the search for her is still ongoing.

In August, Krokar saw its first Navigator promotion with Semini! Gus and Lucille felt that all of her hard work and dedication to many aspects of the pack earned her the rank. Soon afterwards, Taseko spearheaded a new venture: the Krokar Depot near Casa's territory.

Krokar also saw its first official mateship ceremony between Ciara and Aindrea. Organized by Semini and with the help of others in the pack, the ceremony was heavily influenced by the couple's shared Highland culture. In early December, Ciara and Aindrea welcomed three puppies to their family, the first of many to come!

We look forward to seeing Krokar sail into a bright 2016!

1.3  2016

It's been another busy year in Krokar! 2016 started off with a lot of puppies: two born to Semini with Sapien, Nikita Volkov, followed closely by four to Lucille and Gus Cormier! Rounding out the year's litters were two born to Eliza Cormier and Milos Parhelion in August.

But not all was rosy in the months between the births. Hardship and tragedy struck in mid-March when Milos' past caught up with him. After destroying Krokar's Depot in the south, a group of mercenaries known as the Austringer Cartel arrived at the pack's borders in search of Milos and his friend, Sorcha. Demanding the two former slaves as ransom, the cartel promised Krokar horses and the return of Eliza's friend, Peony. The pack's refusal to give into the Austringer Cartel's demands resulted in a brief, but fierce, battle and the ensuing confrontation ended in Sorcha's death, along with several of the Austringers. Two of the survivors joined Krokar as Flotsam and began to make up for their misdeeds.

While the pack was still reeling from the Austringer Hostility, a meteor dubbed the Red Star fell into the ocean, and the resulting shockwaves damaged a lot of the pack lands while causing flooding and terrifying earthquakes. The pack came together, with the welcome assistance to their allies in Sapient, to help each other and make all the repairs they could.

With the unwelcome excitement during the beginning of the year, the pack enjoyed the relative calm that followed. New buildings were built, including watch towers at various sites along the border and they held the Celebration of Achievements with caribou races featured prominently. Malina, sponsored by Semini, won this year's race! Other achievements included promotions throughout the ranks, notably the promotion of Milos Parhelion to Quartermaster.

September saw an increase in members, and, as a result, leadership decided to expand the lands and shift their borders to include more of the Miramichi river. Trade continued as well, including acquiring a llama and other goods from one of Vinatta's members in return for a young caribou. During ongoing talks for another livestock agreement with AniWaya, the tribal pack disbanded, and Krokar acquired a large amount of livestock in the process. After the loss of the Krokar Depot, the pack started a new venture in an attempt to increase trade: the Old Ironsides Depot on the way to Portland.

With all the new animals settled in, the pack began to tuck in for the winter, looking forward to the new year.

1.4  2017

A biting cold and wicked snow usher in another year for the fisherfolk of Krokar, putting to rest the tragedies, transgressions, and turmoil that seemed to endure the four seasons of 2017.

When their allies were attacked early in the year by a group of mercenaries, members of Krokar stood strong and brave alongside Sapient. The bittersweet victory resulted in the loss of one beloved Krokaran, Nikolas McCreery. Krokar members returned home to find that two expecting mothers had given birth: a pair of puppies born to Ailie Morgan, fathered by Finlay Cormier, and another pair born to Semini, fathered by Lokr Revlis of Salsola. Reluceo Vela, too, gave birth prior to the fighting to two children fathered by Leonardo Auditore of Sapient. While Krokar recovered from that conflict, a new adversary appeared: a sickness that ravaged the entirety of 'Souls territory. Much to everyone's relief in Krokar, the sickness was mild and the pack recovered without casualties.

At the beginning of summer news arrived from Vinátta that its leader was missing and they were disbanding. Krokar took in many of their animals because of the livestock breeding program between the packs. Many of Vinátta's members joined Krokar as well. With their numbers swelling, Captains Lucille and August decided that the time was nigh to expand the pack's territory and Krokar claimed land further to the north and west. After the stress and turmoil of winter, it seemed that peace and calm was finally settling over Krokar and its people began to breathe easy.

Ailie Morgan set off on a trade expedition with Bramble Parhelion in tow, eager to establish the pack as a fair and worthy trade power. Weeks turned into months and, near the end of summer, only Bramble returned. Ailie had been abducted and much of their traded goods lost. And, despite their best efforts, Ailie was never found. During late summer, two new Guppies were born to parents Iroquois and Sylven Firebringer, who later announced their mateship.

In order to strengthen their alliance with Sapient, leadership from both packs brought their respective people together for a late-summer beach party. A raft-building competition was held, good food was served, and much drink was consumed. After returning home, it became increasingly obvious something was not right. Some of Krokar's members had been ill ever since the party and some Sapiens were also sick. Many feared that the pestilence that had swept across the territories earlier in the year had returned. Mysteriously, it seemed only a select few were afflicted. Late in the autumn season, after trading several goods from a passing loner, a number of maps was discovered among the new items. Curious, many Krokarans followed these strange maps and many Krokarans returned.

But not all.

The body of Sapien Kalila Damaichu turned up on Krokar's borders and shortly after it was determined that Oscar Morelli, Thiago Vela, and Reluceo Vela, were missing from Krokar, and that members in Sapient were also missing after discovering maps of their own. Once again, Krokar and Sapient came together to search for their vanished numbers. Meanwhile, tragedy befell the Cormier-Parhelion family when Eliza gave birth to two stillborn pups. While the family mourned, Krokarans discovered that they were being kept in the Serpentine Mountains by a group of slave traders, and made compliant and weak with drugs. Another fierce fight commenced, resulting in the death of a Krokaran named Lilith Fairbreeze when she sacrificed herself to save her packmate, Malcolm. But their efforts, and the lives lost, were not in vain. Krokar and Sapient clinched victory against the drug-dealing slave traders and returned home with their missing members.

With Oscar returned safely home, Captain and founder of Krokar, August Cormier, announced his intention to lead a group to Old Ironsides, Krokar's trading depot stationed in Portland, and relinquish his role as leader. Long-time Krokaran, and former Navigator, Semini, too, announced that she would be leaving Krokar to sail the seas as captain of her very own ship.

After a treacherous year of tragedy and turmoil, it is Krokar's hope that 2018 will bring peace, quiet, and cheer.
