    Just started this and enjoying it! Playing it with the new werewolf pack. Currently working on writing the first chapter (photos already done) before sharing. Usually I write a more gameplay based writing but this will will have a story line.

    Without spoiling to much, here is where I am at.

    Luna/Lone Wolf/Creator - Cathwulf
    The Gatherer - Greta Laurent
    Servant - Waylon (deceased)
    Servant - Micah

    Not to kinkshame or anything, but is this like a fetish? Like, with the males being slaves and what not, is it based on a femdom fantasy?
    Not trolling, serious question.

    It's based on what could best be described as a historical myth. Glad you're not trolling, but I'm going to take your serious question seriously. So, with comics like Wonder Woman, there's a certain perception of Amazons as being these immortal women living on an island, but there's also the multiple sources of literature depicting them. The Amazons tip up in a bunch of places, and they're pretty much just created to be the opposite of what women at the time were. They really could have been based off of a real people that were seen and turned into a myth, but the understanding of them was actually depicted by men at the time. Shakespeare even wrote about them in a Midsummer Night's Dream, though only briefly, but they were mentioned in Hercules' labours, and the 'men being slaves' thing is something that turns up occasionally as part of the myth of the Amazon. It...tends to vary from writer to writer, honestly.

    So, uh, yeah. It's actually not based on a woman's fantasy. Just some Greek and Roman guys trying to think of the most outlandish thing they could for shock value. It's an interesting thing, to be sure.

    Edited to add: they did very likely see armoured women on horseback, something that would be fantastical to them. These women did not follow the customs that were then claimed by the writers. They were just from nomadic tribes! I encourage you to look into it, because it's pretty fascinating.
