The sign reads
"Welcome all new travellers.
To continue you must go through a series of doors.
After going through you will pick a costume. You will then become a half- human and half that creature.
After a week(100 mins a hour,20 hrs a day,10 days a week) has passed you may morph and get another costume. To start of with you will only be able to become 40% human to 60% human.
If you put on a costume you will then become that creature, be teleported to it's home town and have to wait a week before being able to morph.
After 50 costumes you may change into one of your other costumes and become 30% to 70% human. When changing costumes you must wait at least an hour before you can change costumes again.
100 different species/gender costumes allows you to gender-morph and become 20% to 80% human
200 different species costumes allows you to combine costumes and become 10% to 90% human
400 different species costumes allows you to return to your world with no more morphing
And 800 different species costumes makes a polymorph and allows you to morph outside of this world.
Also if you have a costume like a centaur then the human part will always be human and is counted towards the human percentage.
Any gender/species transformation magic of yours can only change your gender(if you have at least 100 costumes) and the animal part to a different animal.
When you change into a different costume (that you already have) you may teleport to that species home town but you will have the week penalty where you have no costume changes.
If you die while wearing a costume you will be reborn at the local inn (or appropriate location ). If you have more then 100 costumes you will lose the costume you had when you died and go to an appropriate place for your next costume.
If you fail to make it out in 100 years(100 weeks in a year) one of your possible forms will be chosen and you will be permanently stuck in that form(apart from magic) until you die. Also there will be no possibility of going back to your world.
Also, one final note: should you take a female form and become pregnant, you won't be able to change your gender until the child is born, though the other aspects of your form may change (the child will change to match.) That is all, and good luck!
You realise that you have to do what the sign said to do and go through the doors and grab a costume.
Alternatively you could use the key system to determine the room

You go through the door.
All of a sudden it slams shut and with no handle on this side it appears that you are stuck.<P/>There are five costumes in this room, all of them female, all of them are normal land creatures.

You find a costume of what looks like an anthro-wolf, as well as instructions. Follow them, you strip off your clothes and find the opening in the front of the costume. You put your legs into the costume, and pull it up over the rest of your body, zipping it up.
The last thing left is the head, which you flip over your own.
Suddenly, you feel odd, and noticed the zip has disappeared. You begin to wonder this as you feet change ,painfully, now fitting the odd wolfen stance of the costume. The changes progress, upwards, as you feel the costume meld with you.
You suddenly remember this was the female room, as you notice a void between your legs and your waist painfully shrinks upwards, pushing your his and ass out.
You suddenly notice a weight on your chest as well, as two (very) large breasts force their way out. As you feel them with your changed hands, you face changes to, pushing out and melding with the wolfen head of the costume.
The changes subside, leaving you as a rather sexy looking anthro-wolf.

You’re hit with a spell of dizziness before your world turns black as you lose consciousness.
When you come to, the first thing you notice is the chilled, damp air surrounding you. Your vision is still hazy as you look around in the darkness, and as your eyes adjust and you notice you seem to be surrounded by rock. You realize you’re staring at the ceiling of a cave when you finally register the cold stone from your feet to the back of your head. You try and sit up and as you do, a sharp pain shoots through your spine, causing you to take a sharp intake of breath.
“Not too quickly. Your body suffered quite a bit of damage in your fall.” You hear a deep voice call from behind you.
Before you can turn to look for the owner of the voice, a figure walks into your view. He is an elderly wolf, which you can easily tell by his grayed fur and the hunched way he walks. When he turns towards you, his wrinkled wolfish face affirms your thoughts on his age.
“How are you feeling?” He asks, making you realize you were staring at him.
You quickly look away, taking this opportunity to look around you. Now that your eyes are adjusting to the small amount of light, you realize you are in a particularly small section of a cave, and that the floor in some parts is covered in plush looking leaves. It looks as though there are shelves cut out of the stone and there are various plants filling those spots. Out of the corner of your eye you notice what looks like a small hole leading to the outside of the cave, providing the dim light to the cave.
You look at the elderly wolf before you and think about the choices you have. The old wolf doesn’t look like he would be able to catch you very easily if you decided to make a run for it, but you are injured, not to mention, who knows where that opening leads. Or you can risk staying, not knowing what he wants from you.

You decide that making a run for it in your condition isn’t the best idea. You have no idea the extent of your injuries past your spine hurting as you sat up earlier. Besides, you figure that if he was going to hurt you in any way, he wouldn’t be seeing how you were feeling. Of course, you know that it isn’t out of the question, but it’s probably a small chance.
You realize that during this whole thought process, the old wolf was simply watching you with knowing eyes. “It’s probably in your best interest to not run. The whole rest of my pack is right outside this cave, you wouldn’t get past them in your current state.”
You open your mouth to ask him what your current state is, but immediately break out into a fit of coughs and your throat feels as if it is on fire. You grab onto it and screw your eyes shut in pain, unable to do anything but take in ragged breaths.
“Here,” You hear him say, and open one of your eyes to see him holding out what looks like a bowl shaped leaf full of what appears to be water. “Drink this, slowly.”
You shakily reach out one of your hands and are momentarily shocked. You forgot that you had been turned into a wolf, your paw startling you. Your desire for the water was far more important at that moment though, so you quickly grab the leaf and bring it towards you, taking note of your elongated face.
Although it takes you a minute, and you spill quite a bit of the water onto yourself, you finally manage to pour the drink into your maw, gulping it down against the instructions of the elder.
As it slid down your throat, it soothed the fire there and made your insides feel chilled, in a good way. You quickly finish off the amount left in the leaf and set it down, looking at the wolf who was now sitting on a round stone a bit in front of you.
“Better?” He asks simply, watching you with curious eyes.
You nod, deciding to try and talk again. “Whe…” You hesitate, but feel no pain from trying to talk this time, giving you the courage to continue. “Where am I?” You are momentarily startled at the feminine voice that comes from your mouth, but then quickly chide yourself for forgetting once again that you had been transformed.
“I will explain in just a minute.” He starts, holding out his paws, trying to give you something. “But first you need to chew on these herbs, they’ve been helping with your recovery. It’s time for you to take them again, and now that you’re awake it will be much easier.”
He turns his paw upwards and opens it, revealing what looks like some stems and small weird looking leaves.
You’re not sure what to do. You can either trust what he says about them, or you can refuse to take something from this strange wolf.
Written by Pandachannnnn on 05 April 2017
Deciding that it would be best to just do what he says and take the herbs, you take them from his open paw. It’s perfectly logical that they would have been giving them to you.
You open your mouth to ask him how you are supposed to take them but he is one step ahead of you. “Chew them up and swallow them. It’s going to taste pretty bitter but they’re very effective.”
You look at the small pile in your paw once before tossing them into your mouth, quickly chewing on them. Bitter was an understatement, you decided, as the overwhelming flavor spread all over your tongue. You struggled with yourself to not spit them out, as your jaw worked as fast as it could to chew them into a small enough paste for you to swallow. Luckily, they were very soft leaves, which you were almost immediately able to gulp down, leaving only the slightest trace of the nastiness in your mouth.
“You asked where you were earlier,” The old man started, now that you had taken the herbs. “The answer to that is in a village of wolves. The whole pack lives right outside, and this cave serves as the medicine place.”
Opening your mouth to allow your long tongue to loll out you shake your head frantically, hoping that the moist air might make the remaining flavor disappear.
He didn’t seem fazed by that, and continued. “As for how you got here, we’re not too sure. We found you right outside of the village, but we have no idea how or when you arrived. We also have no idea how you got all of your injuries.”
Finally, you decide to give up and try your hardest to ignore your mouth and focus on the conversation. “What are my injuries, exactly?”
“You have quite a lot. Your spine was fractured, your tail and one of your ribs broken, as well as a multitude of scratches and bruises. Whatever got a hold of you seemed to be set on killing you, which also brings the question of why it didn’t into play.”
You were stunned. You had no idea what happened after you had put on that costume, but whatever it was couldn’t have been good.
You were in the middle of also wondering why you weren’t killed when he spoke up again. “I suppose you would probably like to get a chance to walk around. I guess I can give you a tour of the village while we’re doing it. Kill two birds with one stone.”
The idea of being shown around sounded great to you, but you were very tired and weren’t sure if you wanted to use all your remaining energy trying to walk.

You don’t hate the idea of a walk, but you know that your body is trying to recover and needs as much sleep as it can get to heal as fast as it can. You tell him this and he agrees, telling you he will just show you around later. You find the idea of falling back asleep with this strange wolf a bit strange, but you are so tired that you don’t think about it too much. The rock you’re lying on definitely isn’t comfy, but you find yourself slipping into sleep quickly.
You dream of a wide field, full of tall grass and the scents of animals. You feel your animal instincts urging you to go after the closest of the scents, one which you recognize to be a rabbit. You find that you’re on all fours and you easily crouch low to the ground and creep towards the unaware prey. As you near you can see the little brown rabbit munching on some sort of plant, and at the last second, it picks its head up in surprise, catching your scent. Before it can dash though, you’re on it, crushing the life out of its throat with your strong jaws.
Your mouth salivates and you’re just about to take a bite when you’re jostled from sleep. You aren’t sure what woke you up since there is no one near you, but you hear a quiet conversation nearby you. You can either pretend to be asleep so you can eavesdrop if they’re talking about you, or get up to try and join the conversation.
Written by Pandachannnnn on 30 April 2017
You don’t want to eavesdrop. It is too rude, and you wouldn’t want anyone to do so to you. You hear them approaching and you push yourself into a sitting position, leaning against the stone wall behind you. A few seconds later the elder wolf walks in, followed by a younger male wolf.
This wolf is big, way taller than the older wolf, with wide shoulders and muscles. His coat is a dark gray, almost black, and when he notices you are awake, he turns and locks his green eyes with yours. You can see what seems to be distrust in them, but after a few seconds, you look away, shuddering.
“Good to see you’re awake.” The elder says, taking a seat on the rock from earlier.
You look towards him and he motions to the big wolf. “This is our alpha.”
“Hello.” He greets simply, his deep voice rumbling.
You nod in greeting, not trusting your voice to not be shaky.
“Our alpha here doesn’t want you to stay with us.” The old wolf starts.
“Hey now—“ The alpha tries to get in, but is cut off by the elder.
“He thinks you could possibly be dangerous. I don’t think you have a dangerous bone in your body. At least not one that wasn’t broken.” He sniggers at this last bit, making a joke about how he had found her gravely injured.
Swallowing, you turn to look at the alpha again, making sure to keep your gaze downward so not to show disrespect. “I mean no harm to anyone. I’m not even sure what is going on or how I got here.”
He is silent for what seems like an eternity, searching up and down you, before he sighs, standing up and turning away. “Fine. I’ll say I believe you for now. But watch yourself, because I’ll have someone monitoring you at all times until you prove it to me.” With that he walked away, leaving you alone with the older wolf once more.
It was quiet for a few seconds before the elder started laughing.
You turn to him questioningly.
“He likes to play tough. I can tell he doesn’t think you’re a threat. I just find it funny when he tries to act scary.”
You find it odd that he would think that way about his alpha, and when you ask he shocks you. “Oh, that’s my son. That’s why.”
That’s all he says on the matter, but you can’t help but think about how they didn’t really look much alike.
“I’ve actually got to go to his hut to pick up something I left there, and I would love it if you would accompany me. I can show you around while we’re out there.”
You’re not sure if you want to risk running into the alpha again but you really want to go out and get some fresh air.
