After a hard day's fighting, we look for somewhere to rest for the night so we can recover and tend to our wounds. A cave presents itself nearby, which would provide some shelter, but is it safe?
We move up to the cave and enter, and are greeted by a white wolf. Actually greeted by it, mind you, as it speaks, welcoming us in to the cave and inviting us for dinner. 'Hello', says Nerrick cheerfully, 'I'm Nerrick. What's your name?'
'Hello, Nerrick. I'm... uh... Wolf #1.'
As this is clearly an innocent encounter with an intelligent wolf, and certainly not a prelude to combat, we gladly follow Wolf #1 deeper in to the cave.
