Welcome to the Grove(Adoption Center)
The trees of the grove soar up all around you, the thick canopy of their sprawled limbs muting the bright sunlight above. Everything looks warm and welcoming in the gentle glow and you steadily make your way towards the largest tree in the center of the grove. The trunk is massive and its tangled limbs curl almost protectively through the air, the only sign of the precious cargo it guards below. The trees gnarled roots jut above the ground and as you approach you see that there is an extensive den underneath. You can hear the faintest sounds of laughter and playful yips but before you get too close there is a muted groan and quiet grumbling that pauses you in your steps. An old and weathered felvarg drags himself from the depths of the den, muttering under his breath about his weary joints and not being as spry as he used to be. The old male is small and stocky, but the hardness of his narrowed eyes lets you know that he will not abide by threats or violence towards his charges. His eyes soften and grumpy expression unfurls as he takes you in before he heaves a labored sigh and relaxes. “My name is Gerolamo and I’m the caretaker for the abandoned pups of Ulfrheim. You’re here to take a gander at our current pups of The Grove, I gather. Well, let’s not dawdle! I’ll gather up the rascals; they’ll be more than excited for the chance at a true family.”
