Welcome
Welcome to The Lost Shores, a supernatural/canine rp based on a unknown island near London.

London... chilly and snowy in the winter months and although warm and sometimes even hot in the summer, still far from a tropical island. Thats what a lot of people think... thats what the humans and canines of this island thought before they crashed here. No one knows how they came upon this island, but its a fact that its only a few hours (by ship) away from London, though the temperatures are dramatic, constantly changing from hot to cold and the inhabitants of this island are far from normal.

Really no one is certain where this island is, mostly everyone is unaware of its existence and all those poor souls lost here are thought to be dead, lost at sea. Of course thats only logic, but is it still logic when year after year a ship or plane wrecks after setting out, no record to be seen since they set out and no one returns? I'd say its more of those of the mainland lieing to themselves so they wouldn't risk it all just to track down this island to find out whats happening. Maybe it's better that way.

SHIFTERS
The strong | Difficult | Violent | Unpredictable


  • Shifters are either a human or a wolf that had been born of at least one shifter parent and a human/wolf as the other parent (or two shifter parents).
  • Being part wolf shifters are usually very timid creatures, and not well in large crowds or being caged in. If a shifter feels intimidated or in danger they will more then likely become violent or scared depending on their over all personality or how well they have control of their wolf side.
  • having two different forms shifters aging system is rather strange. Although they age at the same speed as humans, they can live way longer. The oldest shifter lived up to 500 years though at that point he wasn't in healthy condition and was very weak, so the most a shifter can live up to and still be healthy is about 450 years.
  • Shifters are the only known creature on the island that have natural enhanced senses. Being part wolf shifters are able to hear things very far away as well have a very keen sense of smell and sight. They extra ordinarily strong and fast in both of their forms unless they are a turned shifter, then they are no different then a normal human in their human form and a normal wolf in their wolf form.
  • Shifters are able to turn a human into a shifter but it is very risky. Usually a bite from a shifter (must be in a vein) can turn a human to a shifter, but it is highly dangerous as their saliva is poisonous to humans and can kill them. Another way to turn a human to a shifter is through consuming their saliva though it is very rare that a human is turned in this fashion, only certain very powerful shifters are capable of this.
  • A shifter as zero control of when they shift though they can try to fight it (this would be very painful). Usually a shifter will change when they get excited or angry, but other things that can cause a shifter to shift is freezing cold weather as their body will turn into an animal as a form of defense.
  • Once a shifter has shifted into a wolf they have no memory of their time as a human and visa verse for when they're a human. Because of this a shifter as a wolf can be dangerous if you have not become a companion with it's wolf form. The shifter will be very shy or violent based on their personality when they're a wolf.
  • For whatever reason, shifters are only found on this island, no where else in the mainland. Some believe it has to do with the many mysteries of this island, which is probably true but shifter are only found here and for what ever reason can only turn into a wolf.

Weaknesses


  • Much like humans, certain illnesses can kill a shifter though shifters are more likely to fight off any illness that they may catch.
  • Much like werewolves from myths, shifters are weakened by silver. This isn't always a bad thing because unless the silver penetrates their skin the shifter is unharmed. Silver just coming in contact with a shifters skin will keep it from shifting, meaning if you happen to find a silver collar and you don't want to shift just wear it and you'll be safe.
  • Magic is also very effective against shifters, though it may not kill them it will wound them badly in most cases.  
  • All shifters have very similar traits, these traits are also seen in human and some witches. These traits are often known as the seven deadly sins. Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth (otherwise known as laziness), wrath (rage), envy, and pride. Although most humans do not have all of these traits, humans often have at least one of them, whether it be well hidden or not it is there and it a large weakness to shifters.
  • Harmful weapons of any kind will kill a shifter. It will have to be a weapon of stronger power to down a shifter unless it is a silver weapon but it can be done.
  • Shifters are highly allergic to wolfsbane. It will usually kill the shifter if consumed if not then badly injure the shifter. Wolfsbane is not only dangerous to shifters when consumed but coming in contact with the skin of a shifter can paralyze the shifter.  


Allies and Enemies


  • Humans and shifters are close allies due to their close resemblances. The shifters and humans are actually so close that a lot of shifters have just merged into the human's group, helping them on the island and communicating with them and most humans are accepting of them despite their spontaneous shiftings that can sometimes get a bit dangerous.
  • More then likely the shifters are peaceful with witches, though a lot of shifters do not support witch craft and so are hostile with them. Witches are welcomed among the shifters IF and only IF they have proven they would only use witch craft for good and even then there are chances a lot of shifters may reject them. It is also important if the humans accept the witches as well as most humans and shifters live together.
  • Like the humans, shifters are good friends with wolves even though their humans form will hardly remember of their friendship. When a shifter shifts the will most likely spend more time with the other wolves rather then the humans, so shifters and wolves have a good relationship as well.
  • Spirits are often hostile with shifters, being angry from being pulled away from heaven or where ever the hell they went. Even though they won't attack shifters like humans will because shifters are much more strong against spirits they are still very pestering of the shifters.
  • The number one enemy of the shifters are the necromancers. Necromancers are magic users like witches, with no other goal except to cause misery and pain. Most humans not supporting the necromancers antics shifters and necromancers are long feuding species.
