(TFT) Kingdom of the wolves

     This scroll contains incomplete research and no new spell.  It is also
held by both scholars here to be a fraud.  I purchased it for ten silver, and
spend more than that shipping it to you.

Kingdom of the wolves.

     The complex social hierarchy of a wolfpack is a fascinating subject.
That has been the study of several naturalists.  It is not the subject of this
scroll, as my master has instructed me to see if a wolf can be taught to
control persons.

     Our first attempts used wolf pups raised in captivity.  But no amount of
training could get the wolves to raise their already keen senses beyond that
of instinct.  In fact when confronted with wolves in the wild, our specially
trained beasts seemed rather dull, and easily tricked.  In addition a
prolonged series of telepathic probing into what they wanted for themselves,
yielded only the overwhelming desire to become stronger.

     One of my telepaths was eaten by his subject.  When I probed it he
conveyed that he was now the _ biggest _ dog in the room, and even I had to do
what he wanted.  He somehow believed that by eating the telepaths heart he
had gained his power.

     Next we tried shapeshifting a series of animal handlers into wolves.
They were familiar enough with wolf behavior and wolf diet to pass the initial
sniff test.  But in every case when brought to the lead wolf it was an
immediate fight to the death.  Only one animal handler actually won his fight.
He took over the pack, sired several litters, and started raiding villages
teaching the other wolves to eat babies.  Then entire pack had to be put

     Next we developed a collar of possession at great expense as well as
collars of intelligence, and control animal.  In all cases the pack destroyed
the collard wolf, or the wolf would flee the pack until it dropped from
exhaustion, and when it woke would begin attacking itself.

     Next I used astral projection with telepathy and illusion to give a
selection of different pack leaders waking dreams and visions.  If one would
fulfill a vision I gave it then I would use a wish to raise its intelligence.
This seemed to be working for a while, but unfortunately they began destroying
all the male pups born to their pack.  Visions to the contrary just made
matters worse and they enhanced wolves lead their respective packs on a cross
continent campaign to destroy all males in every other wolf pack they could

     It took several generations to repopulate the wolves to their former
levels.  Next we raised a wolf to think it was human, and surrounded it with
humans who would do what it wanted.  Even this wolf would not self select
intelligence as it grew.  And when a wish was used to increase it anyway, the
humans became terrified and killed it.

     Next we shape shifted pups a week after birth into baby humans.  One
mother continued to nurse and raise her six.  Two survived their youth.  They
were easily lead by dreams and visions and it didnt matter if wolves or
humans appeared to them as they seemed to perceive no difference between the
two.  We were surprised when they reached maturity and became co leaders of
their pack.  In addition they took to any quest we gave them joyfully, even
learning how to swim great distances.

     Through wishes and the adventures of they pack they were able to raise
their intelligence to the point that they could conceivably be able to learn
how to cast control person.  There was considerable and extended debate as to
which one we should teach.  Eventually we decided to teach both, so I had to
go and beg my master for another to assist me.  He sent his own son and
daughter to teach them, and I was removed from the Project.
