The Monthly Howl:
WolfQuest Newspaper
W e l c o m e .
Hello there, and welcome to the home topic of The Monthly Howl, WolfQuest's very own community-run newspaper! Every month or so, the team will produce a newspaper stocked with articles and other interesting items about the happenings of WolfQuest, from helpful guides and tips for the newer users, to more in-depth dissections of the game and forums for those who have been around for quite a few months or years. Take a look around this topic, meet the team, find out what to expect in the next edition, and browse through the archives!

M e e t T h e E d i t o r s .
The Editors are always open to suggestions, comments and questions, so feel free to enquire about anything at all. Don't be hesitant, if you've got a problem just let me know! Nikoi Gryphon was previously an Editor of the newspaper, however, she has resigned due to lack of time. Seranda7 was the founder and previous owner of the newspaper, so the origins of the WolfQuest Newspaper are fully credited to her. We thank them both for their contributions and efforts with the Monthly Howl.

N e w s p a p e r C o n t e n t s .
Wondering what you will find in the newspaper? For each edition, our team works together to create articles about what's happening around the forums, upcoming board events, and singleplayer and multiplayer gameplay. The Journalists will also submit interviews, art and literature features, and a range of other items. We also accept advertisements for groups in Pack Central, avatar shops, signature shops and other topics that concentrate on community projects or organisations. The Graphics Team will supply various pieces for you to appreciate, which may include anything from game screenshots to comics about WolfQuest.

C o m i n g S o o n .
We currently do not have any major events or articles upcoming for The Monthly Howl, but watch this space for any interesting previews.

There was some delay with the return of the paper due to complications, but we're back and ready to go. As to the WQ Network, we shall discuss that over PM, as we're currently not looking for partnerships. However, I'm sure we can work something out. :]

Thanks for signing up! The forum's coming along nicely, although it needs quite a bit of organising and tidying, but we'll get there eventually.

I might sign up in the future, but maybe when I'm less busy. I become quite unactive for periods at a time.
