We have been upgraded!
The layout is new to me,
so bear with me as I explore.
In the meantime ...
We have a shout box!
Since we haven't gotten very far,
we're still limited to non-magical humans only.
The spot where their magic is hidden hasn't been found yet,
but a new race HAS been spotted in the forest!
A town has been flooded with large/giant spiders
And a chest has appeared at the bottom of the Forbidden Cavern

The old woman smiles ever so slightly. The other people go back to their business, but keep a form eye on the visitor. The wolves, do not leave however, they no longer are lying on the ground. "Magic belong to no one. Crystal part of big spell. Keep humans from big war long ago. You here, means spell is breaking."
She lowers her free hand and pets the older wolf on the head. "What you want, human?"

Red tilts her head in bemusement. "Magic...? But...Isn't magic just a fairy tale? And...I mean no offense by this, but are you saying...That you all aren't human yourselves?" She paused for a couple of seconds before realizing that the elder had asked her a question. "Oh, I'm sorry, I should answer you before asking questions of my own, shouldn't I? Um, well...Really, I'm only passing through as a traveler. Nobody's been in this forest for a long time...Well, as far as we knew, anyways...and its garnered a reputation for being a place of fear and darkness. I...Guess I let my curiosity get the better of me, since I just came here to explore." (Gack, forgot my roll. [dice=6] )[rand=7653458773383378989050547655343293664753919552665834212258182323]

The old woman wrinkled her nose a bit, "Girl, you speak too much. Magic real, humans protected from war. They get magic taken away, put into big barrier. "
She holds the crystal so it can be seen again and seems to focus. slowly, it seemed that wood started growing from one end of the crystal. It twisted and turned. After a while of this, she turned it so that the end touched the ground. She now holds a staff with the crystal being held at the top, now looking slightly dimmer.
"You see now... world left by humans. I be of wolfman. Not human. I know magic, use magic. You human, yuo here to explore. So explore. Maybe you find magic."

(Apologies, been busy with finals and holiday madness and friends. But mostly finals. Oh homework, how I loath thee)
Red watched the staff form from the crystal in fair disbelief, trying to reconcile the impossibility of what she was seeing. She wasn't fearful of it, though...More...Entranced, curious. The elder speaking once more snapped her out of it, though, and she nodded. "Ah...Maybe I will find it. Thank you for your kindness." She said, curtseying once more out of respect before turning to leave the encampment.

Nothing much happened after she stated her intention to leave, the old woman turned to the group and said something about letting her through and scouting ahead for other humans.
The direction she continued in would be further away from the path she had just turned from and would lead her bac to the main path. It would not be long before the path would make a sharp turn and she would be faced with a stretch of woods made of graves, corpses, dead horses, young trees, and the blackened remains of the forest that was there before.
