Establishing a Home & Raising a Pack
Slough Creek (currently only WolfQuest 2.7)
Finding unclaimed land
In WolfQuest, your first task once you reach Slough Creek is to locate suitable territory and choose a den site. There are already several other wolf packs with established territories, which they patrol and defend. Two young wolves would have a hard time wresting control from an established pack. Best to seek an unclaimed place away from the competition.
Choosing a den site
A den may be located in a rock crevice, a hole, or even a tree stump. Ideal dens are safe from neighboring wolf packs and other predators but close to elk herds. Currently, you can't dig a den in the game and must choose from a selection of den sites.
Parenting Young Pups
Once your pups emerge from the den, you and your mate have to work hard, bringing them food, defending the den site from predators, maintaining your territory, and bonding with your pups.
Leaving the Den
As the pups mature, they no longer need the protection of a den. The pack moves to a more open area or "rendezvous site" within their territory. Getting pups to the rendezvous site is the last mission of the Slough Creek episode. It is a challenging journey! You will have to feed them as you lead them, protecting them from predators and findng safe passage across the terrain.
