Oh innocent Ginger. There's also the possibility that they may subtract a member during their human performances or dare i say possible solo performances in other venues?

That they subtract a member during their human performances/band is what he's proposing. In his theory, Howland is their manager but doesn't show up on stage. A solo performance could be, sure, but not likely as it's known they moonlight as a human BAND.

20 something to go!

it looks like henry's a fair sight taller than talbot - the latter's legs still dangle a good ways off the floor but the former's are nearly scuffing it

Plot twist: the raccoon is the 5th member of the band!

so i know there's kids in wolverton, but are there grandkids?



...and does the male grandparent get called grandpaw?

While Grandpaw may very well be the name used for the situation, there are no grandkids in Wolverton.

Not to be morbid, but do most folks take advantage of the regenerative transformation in Wolverton?

You've mentioned before that if someone never changes (stays either as human or 'wolf) they age pretty normally, but also that several folks in town are a lot older than they seem. So I'm guessing most if not all the folks in Wolverton take advantage of it.

I'm not sure how that can be considered morbid. Yes, most if not all of them make sure to shift at least once per month. Bear in mind, though, that staying as a human forces a change once a month at the full moon. But if you're already a wolf when the full moon comes, you miss out on the regeneration. So that's why these 'wolves who prefer to remain wolves will make sure to shift at least once a month. However, you can't revert further back than your age when you became a werewolf. Also don't forget that it hurts a lot to shift. So it sucks to have to do it, which could prevent some of them from doing the monthly shift. But yes, most of them have therefore been around a long time. Either way, their lives are significantly and inevitably extended greatly. I hope I didn't miss your point somehow and that answers the question.

To be honest, Peter, neither do I, but I've been having the kind of week where it seems everything I say is getting misconstrued into something I don't mean, so I've started hedging a lot.

I'm really appreciative, as that's basically what I wanted to know. Though now I'm sort of curious how this would work with the cubs and Gavin. Obviously if the cubs stay in 'wolf form long enough they'll age like usual to their first change, and presumably once Gavin reaches 18 and moves to Wolverton full time he'd stay in 'wolf form long enough to not look constantly 16. But I wonder how young a natural 'wolf (or one bitten or changed at a very young age) could stay appearing--e.g. if you're a natural 'wolf and you start shifting at age 8 and never miss a time, would you look 8 more or less forever?
PeterVonBrown 23rd Oct 2020, 7:46 PM edit delete reply
Good question! The answer: Regenerative Longevity works like puberty. It activates at an age range, namely in the mid-twenties. Thus, Gavin and the pups will age normally until that time and then always look like a twenty-something. But if you become a werewolf (by any means) thereabouts or beyond that age range, RL will kick in immediately as the body has developed to a point where it would automatically handle whatever its biological influences. And you will remain about the age you were when you acquired werewolfery. This is why Larry, for instance is a white 'wolf with grey hair.

Ah, okay, thanks! I wasn't sure that grey or white fur necessarily meant grey or white hair to go with it. For instance, Duke's fur is grey but he doesn't seem older than Talbot in a lot of ways, or have the oldish look that Larry and Riqurélio do (and Riqurélio's is mostly grey on his head and mustache).
PeterVonBrown 24th Oct 2020, 8:57 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, Duke isn't actually that old (human-wise). He just got grey hair at an early age. It happens. :)
Indagare 25th Oct 2020, 5:12 AM edit delete reply
Heh. I know all about that. I just wasn't sure how hair color/fur color worked, especially since some folks have two different ones (and while dying is one solution, other things could be going on).
