Wolf-Speak Terms

Post by Lord Alamir on Tue Aug 21, 2018 2:22 pm

Below are all the "Wolf-Speak" terms I've seen used/used personally over the past years. Some I have rarely seen used while others are more commonly utilized. Most of this is based off my own knowledge so there could be some terms missing. If you use/have seen a term used that is not on this massive list, post below the term and where it fits and I will update the list. Keep in mind, I have not yet included terms found in player bios in regards to family, age, kin, partners, etc. so if you have some of those terms, post below as well and I will update it accordingly.
