Wow. Nice! :2thumbsup: I like the fact that each track has an upbeat tempo and rhythm to it, particularly the train track (if you pardon the play-on words). This should really help pep up certain sections. Well done, Jesse!

You're doing these better than me. I played the Wolf series because of the recent release, and it instantly became one of my favourites, especially the mines level.

Thank you both! :) I've still got a ways to go in the next part but I look forward to releasing it in the upcoming months.

I remembered that I had a "Story so far" for the Wolf series in the previous thread, which was purged. I added a new chapter and put the story below. If you've seen this before you can go ahead and skip to Chapter 4 which encompasses the events from The Wolf Pack.

Chapter 1
Sometime after the events of Tomb Raider 3, Lara Croft managed to discover yet another uncharted tomb to raid in the outskirts of Egypt. As she did her usual thing, she realized that, despite its traps and large, boxy nature, the place seemed to be rather empty. She discovered a man-made tunnel leading to some train tracks and a strange wolf-man creature who introduced himself as Luke, an employee of Sophia Leigh who had been helping excavate the tomb and others in the area. Having dealt with the twisted woman already in London, Lara believed Luke when he spoke of the torturous labor that he didn’t know the purpose of, and she knew that it could lead to nothing good. Once he mentioned the scion, she agreed to help him hijack the crazy train, giving him the glimpse of freedom for the first time in his life, while allowing her to investigate something she had thought resolved long-ago. Ignited with a new flame, Luke passionately fought back against his former co-workers after the train stopped in a secret base, which was quite the metallic labyrinth. It was time to find some answers in this strange place Leigh left behind…

Chapter 2
Lara and Luke split up in the base, not just interested in finding the Scion quickly but uncovering any other secrets they could find. Lara explored the Botanical Lab, a conglomeration of mines, fountains and trees infested with snakes and raptors. Barely exterminating a large beast that sprouted from the ground, she found the scion in its remains. Thinking her quest was complete, she set off to join Luke to share her discovery.
Meanwhile Luke headed into the Zoology Lab, a series of large, dilapidated chambers infected in various degrees of some kind of toxic green fluid that gave birth to mutated mosquitoes and dangerous canine-like beasts. Somehow the place gave Luke a sense of nostalgia, but he didn’t exactly remember being there...or being anywhere except outside the base hauling cargo, appreciated only for his superhuman strength. Luckily he was able to find some sort of bio-suit which absorbed most of the damage from the fluids. With some effort he penetrated several heavy doors to breach the mines, which proved to be an eclectic mix of lava, runaway drills, and ancient ruins. Even though he eventually found what would turn out to be the second scion, he still wanted to know more, even daring to power up a rickety hoverboard to unwittingly take a long journey into the heart of Atlantis.
Luke found yet another scion buried in the organic floor, but its disturbance revealed an incomplete, mutated Sophia Leigh as she popped out of the ground, scion implanted in her back. Luckily Lara was able to catch up in time for Leigh to explain how she managed to duplicate the ancient powers of the scion in several copies. Leigh had experimented with its evolutionary powers on plants, then animals such as Luke, and then finally made an attempt to copy an evolved form of herself. Lara managed to subdue the monster enough to pull the scion out of her back and kill her. The scion pulled itself out of Lara’s hands and appeared over Luke along with the other two copies, and soon they all disappeared in a blinding flash, leaving only a few small fragments behind.
As Lara placed the fragments in her treasure room, she wondered what in the world happened to Luke, consoled that she at least helped to stop a twisted mind from coming back from the dead to haunt the world…

Chapter 3
Some time later, after learning of paranormal activity in Russia, Lara travelled to a disorderly military base in the frozen wastelands. Initially surprised to find troops and even a cyborg guarding the otherwise dull and snowy valley, she eventually unearthed a strange artifact, just in time for an alien creature to snatch it out of her hands. She chased after it though a teleportation beam onto a large spaceship. She was quickly captured by a large force of aliens, but not before she ejected the artifact out of an air shaft and saw it pulled toward the home planet below, her instinct telling her that it would be bad for the item to fall under the wrong hands (or paws, or whatever one would call those appendages the aliens had). The leader Ekul presented himself to Lara, who noticed that he looked quite similar to Luke. Ekul took the time to give a monologue about the importance of his people finding the scion in order to survive and best their enemies. How he would even know about the Atlantean artifact, Lara had no idea, but she learned that the artifact that she just ejected had the power to teleport a specific person to the wielder, and knew that the aliens down on the planet would be putting it to use soon enough.
Seemingly out of a void, Luke instantly appeared in a foreign environment with a few poisonous creatures attacking him. After protecting himself, and picking up a strange artifact, in a few seconds his memory was suddenly flooded with recollections of being outside of space and time, being one with the entirety of the scion, the immense power causing a war of good and evil intensions within him…putting those thoughts aside, he explored the muddy ruins of the alien planet and unearthed a small transport vessel that, thanks to its autopilot, enabled him to smuggle onto the large spaceship orbiting the planet.
Wanting to understand the aliens that stole him away to this part of space, he fought through the bleak vessel until he came face to face with Ekul. He immediately recognized that Ekul was the evil part of himself that split off in that timeless era. Enraged that he would enlist these vulnerable aliens and turn them against others, Luke fought Ekul to the death, emerging the winner, but not before Ekul used a deadly blast of fire to mortally wound him. Luke used the teleporting artifact to get himself and Lara back to Earth before he perished. Having had her chance to bid him farewell, Lara privately buried him with the scion pieces in her gardens along with a small memorial, which she doubted she could fully explain to anyone, even Winston, who kept nagging at her that he was seeing faint lights coming from that area from time to time.

Chapter 4
Hundreds of years into the future, a young wolf-man came to life on Mars with no idea of who he is or how he got there. He found out the hard way that there were hostile androids that had taken over a human colony there. Starting to recognize his abilities, the newborn wolf fought his way through the colony to a (rather antiquated) ship he could escape on. Inside the colony he had found some clues as to what Earth is, and that there was once a being like him named Luke. He flew there in hopes of answers.
The president of East Earth did not hesitate to make a show out of lavishing the brave amnesiac with honor and resources, for dealing with those unsavory androids. With a DNA scan and access to certain libraries, a match was found between this wolf-man and a young man named Danny that mysteriously vanished hundreds of years ago. On top of that, Danny had a friend by the name of Johnny that also vanished. Danny, as he henceforth called himself, wondered what kind of life was taken away from him. He quickly grew eager to find a way to get it back.
Soon Danny learned of strange energy spikes coming from West Earth, alien territory. The energy was similar to the energy found within his own body. The same aliens led by Ekul had, in the centuries that passed, managed to conquer roughly a hemisphere of the Earth. The two races cohabited the planet in an uneasy tension. Knowing the government would not want to help him get answers, Danny knew it was up to him to trespass what was formerly known as New Hampshire and get the answers he needed...
