You find yourself surrounded by a vast thick fog. It is impossible to get your bearings as you stumble forward on the rough dirt terrain. You hear whispers in the Mists. Either the voices are too soft or are in a language you don’t recognize but you remain unsure as you are unable to distinguish the words spoken. Some are soft and soothing, while others have a low rumble of threat.

The voices press around you, growing louder but still indistinguishable. You press forward hoping to rid yourself of the near deafening roar of voices. Voices which were driving you further and faster with every step.

Suddenly you run through something. It felt faintly like walking through a spider’s web but was accompanied by a purple pulsing shimmer. The fog tore away with the sensation and your foot crunches atop a fallen pine branch.

You faintly hear the gentle sounds of birds signing and tall trees creaking in the wind.

You find yourself on a small forest path lined with natural stones. Behind you the Mists are gone and you see only the same forest and path trailing until a bend. Though a chill wind came from that direction and you are certain to find yourself back in a fog retreating.

The early autumn sun shines through the trees and warms you invitingly. Your eyes finally fall on a carved wooden sign. A small bear, raven and dragon were carved standing on top of the sign. The words on the sign looked as though they were formed as knots in the wood itself. You gather it must have taken a skilled craftsperson to create such seamless lettering.

Welcome Weary Traveler to Urvidrae Grove, resting spot for the weary on their long journey through life.

This is a Breedable/Changeable shop for BEARS. Well. More accurately, Urvidrae. They are chimera creatures of bear (black bear/grizzy inspired), raven and dragon.

Urvidrae are creatures found in a pine groove in the middle of the Mists. This realm exists on the cusp of waking and dreaming. All must walk through the Mists before arriving to rest in the Grove, though none may stay forever as each traveler must continue on to waking or dreaming.

Urvidrae Grove is a slow paced and relaxed little pine wood that seems to be forever early autumn though time can move as though in a dream as reality isn’t quite solid. Meant to be a quiet space to allow people to reflect on their day and interacting with their dreams.

The Urvidrae themselves are dream creatures, most often seen in their natural hybrid form, but they are shapeshifters. While they cannot change their fur colour or patterns, they can change form to whatever they feel like at the time. This does take concentration and energy to achieve and they must return to their natural form after they tire.

This is a Breedable/Changeable shop for BEARS. Well. More accurately, Urvidrae. They are chimera creatures of bear (black bear/grizzy inspired), raven and dragon.

The Urvidrae themselves are dream creatures, chimeras of bear, raven and dragon. Though they are most often seen in their natural form, they are shapeshifters. While they cannot change their colour or patterns, they can change form to whatever they feel like at the time. This does take concentration and energy to achieve and they must return to their natural form after they tire.


There are three regular stages each Urvidrae goes through. Egg, Cub, Mature. Elder Urvidrae are still a mystery to newcomers to the Grove and as such not much is known about them beyond they are rarely seen.

Eggs require some love and care. Each day as you pass from waking to dreaming and dreaming to waking you may talk to your egg, whisper it your dreams, your hopes, your day. Talk to it and give it the energy to grow.

(2 weeks ~1 week if talked to for three days)


Cubs are above all else curious. Hatched from the egg fully formed and already looking for trouble to get in to. You may talk to your cubs each day as you would the eggs. Cubs can speak with you and understand you, though how they speak is determined on the personality of the cub. As in dreams, communication can be fluid as giving and receiving thoughts and memories, psychic speech, or simply speaking aloud. Written word, however, is near impossible for them to comprehend. Though humans passing through the Grove may understand written words, they slip from Urvidrae minds as letters jumble and melt from their sight. Cubs are nonjudgmental of Dreamers and will provide love and comfort while you stay in the Grove.

(4 weeks ~ 2 if talked to for six days)


Mature Urvidrae are large but gentle creatures. Always soft and warm, the Urvidrae are loyal to those who raised them and supportive above all else. Matured Urvidrae tend to be calmer than their childhood selves, though as everything there are exceptions, and a stronger support to their Dreamer. However the Mature Urvidrae, learning and reflecting from all the time spent together, will now also offer their advice to the Dreamer as they see fit. Urvidrae are lifelong companions to their Dreamers, always available for the Dreamer to depend on as long as there remains the cusp between waking and dreams.

(Forever?)
