  1. Summary

    She’s lived a long life, a very long life. Didn’t matter which way you cut it. In that time she was bound to bump into a familiar face or two. Perhaps even a man who made a habit of wearing multiple faces over the course of time. The appearance didn't matter she'd (nearly) always recognize him, even if he didn't always recognize her.

  2. Summary

    She had no idea just how old she was exactly. Nobody put much thought into the passage of time and marking down dates back then. There was no record of her birth. There were very few records that managed to survive that could contain records of her early years. The oldest manuscript that could pertain to her was death notice in a family's bible from Aberdeen.
    A date of death: 5 of June 1115
    She picked that as her birthday (not entirely inaccurate – since she had returned to life shortly after dying) and figured her age based on that. The death record stated she had died in childbirth at nineteen but she had no way of knowing just how long she’d been nineteen exactly. Her memory of her youth was just as spottily reliable as the surviving records from the mid-12th century.
    If she had really been nineteen that would make her year of birth 1096; either way you cut it by 2015 she was (at least) 900 years old. Regardless, she believed it was rude to ask a woman her age; which would explain why she often changed it to suit her needs. When it looked like you were going to live forever – and not (noticeably) lose your good looks – then why put a number on it?

    Summary

    There’s a legend in Mansewood, nearly as old as the town itself, about a pack of werewolves that once lived in the forest. They say only one survives; a monstrous and snarling beast with fur like a blizzard and fangs the size of daggers. They say it guards the lands and all creatures in it, and no hunter has faced it and lived to tell the tale.

    Steve doesn’t care about any of that. He only wants to know if it prefers T-Bone or ribeye, and would it please stop tracking dirt through his house? He just mopped the floor.
