There have always been 
battles between the corrupt
and the defenders. The 
Lord of Plagues is ever our
greatest enemy. One dark 
night he manifested in part
onto Norrath. A minor 
avatar of his own flesh 
pressed itself through the 
prisons of power that have 
so long kept the gods from 
us. This avatar took no  
form, but spread itself out
among the animals and 
people of Norrath. Many, 
blessed as life is by 
Tunare, resisted the 
corruption and were merely 
sick or died. A few, 
however, were transformed 
in spirit. They became 
corrupted souls and their 
only desire was to bring 
chaos and decay to those  
around them.

Many were easily found and 
destroyed, but some were 
clever as well as corrupt. 
Owls, weasels and wolves 
were the most common of 
these. Their existence was
proven by the hunters but 
they could not be 
discovered.

A council formed. Members 
of the hunters were equally
matched by those of the 
teachers. Their debate was
long and arduous. They 
argued ideas and strategies
all night long. The leader
of the hunters was a great 
bear, the mightiest 
creature in the lands. He 
insisted that if the 
individual corruption in  
the owls, weasels and 
wolves could not be 
discovered, the entire 
species should be 
destroyed. The teachers, 
lead by an aged snake, were
arguing that none of them 
should be harmed, that 
should any be discovered 
they should be captured and
treated well until they 
could be cured. 
As the evening progressed 
the only voices that could 
be heard over the crowd of 
bickering and sometimes 
brawling elders was the 
ground-shaking voice of the
great bear, the persistent,
slithering teacher's voice 
of the snake, and the 
high-pitched voice of a 
young fox. This fox went  
from group to group 
attempting to clarify the 
opinions of each person. 
He asked them specific 
questions to better 
understand their ideas.

As dawn approached five of 
the council were dead. Ten
had stormed off in anger. 
There were only eight left 
in the glade. As the sun  
rose the snake and the bear
continued to argue, neither
willing to agree with the 
other. The fox continued 
to ask for clarification 
about issues, insisting 
that the bear explain how 
best to destroy the owls, 
as they might be hard to 
catch and asking the snake 
how he would keep a weasel 
imprisoned. 

It was then that an old 
wolf entered the clearing. 
None of the wolves had been
invited to the council 
because all of them were 
under suspicion. Many 
wolves were hunters, many 
too were teachers, but the 
silvered wolf than entered 
the glade was unknown to 
any of those that remained  
present.
