Waters End Academy has learned that Werewolves are headed our way. All student Witches and Wizards should be on the look-out for creatures of the night. Students should not go out at night unless accompanied by another student or adult.
The alert comes as the result of a combination of events. The raging fires in Washington, Oregon, and northern California have forced Werewolves out of their usual forest homes. The autumn equinox arrived during the fires on September 22. The equinox is a time of increased supernatural activity when day and night are of equal length. The equinox has made the Werewolves even more anxious.
A migration of Werewolves during the equinox is bad. But it is even more dangerous because it is happening near a full moon due on October 1. A full moon usually lasts about three days. Werewolves lose their ability to control their change from human into wolf form during a full moon.
Waters End Academy is hosting a Monster Hunt on Saturday October 3 – while the full moon is still present. Students participating in the event should be prepared to meet Werewolves and defend themselves if necessary.
In the meantime, the school will host a Charm making event on Saturday September 26 during which students will make Charms that defend against Werewolves and Vampires. Students will make Charms for personal use and Charms to be placed near entrances to the Waters End community.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 30: Students found Werewolf fur and blood in the bushes near the gate at the end of Spooky Lane today. The fur appeared to have been caught in the bushes when the creature was climbing over the wall. This is the first evidence of Werewolf activity in Waters End since last year. Students placed a new Werewolf protection charm at the scene, replacing one that went missing recently.
