A physical shift (or a P-shift, for short) is a physical change into another form. Of all the shifts, this is the the hardest and takes a lot of dedication, time and practice. (citation needed) Some communities, such as the Therian Temple use this term to instead describe an extreme Physiological shift.

Physical Shifts in LegendsEdit
Fictional Werewolves are able to change into a wolf, or "Wolf-like creature", usually during the full moon, Captain Obvious.
There are several notable communities involved with physical shifting, which sprang to popularity around 2009. They help people who have never shifted with experience and valued information by other people who have experience and share how to do mental to gradually physical shifting.
Almost all therians in this category identify themselves with wolves, most likely from blood lines and other relations, although there are a number of cats, dogs, bears, and any other animal.
- Silver Pack
Created in 2010, Silver Pack was fonded by Silver Black, its alphess. Known to be the rebirth of many fallen communities united into one, Silver Pack was made to re-group all the serious and lost therians/otherkins trying to find peace, guidance and information at the most criticial therian forum war occuring around that time. With years, they worked hard to build a respectful and peaceful place where everyone could grow and happy and is now called a family.It also contains a lot of information about shifting, since their ultimate goal is to unlock the mysteries of p-shifting and reach it.
This site is currently the most active one.: silverpack.forum-nation.com
- Razgriz Pack
Founded in 2008 by a male wolf therian, Razgriz pack was the most widely known online therian dating site dealing with physical shifting. At it's peak, it has 685 members. Later abandoned by the owner, it shifted control several times. It has now been relocated.It died because of the controversial of physical shifting and lack of activity. .
The site now has around one post a month. http://razgrizpack.webs.com
- Pariah Pack II
Founded as a child site of Razgriz when the original alpha left it, it was since abandoned by the owner. A new alpha pair was voted in, in 2011 and established a new site with more control over it. The current alpha is a female(?) wolf therian and has been alpha since the new site was established. The male alpha has changed twice, and the space is currently vacant, although another is not likely to be voted in soon.
This site accepts all species of therian and human, and has a variety of races but is surprisingly skeptical of physical shifting and is most likely not the best place for helping others understand how to truly shift and what it means to and how. Currently they have over 10 members from all walks of life and all different countries.
This site has a lot of members but its activity has decreased. http://pariahpack2.webs.com/
- Reclusive Shadows Pack
Founded in 2010, the Reclusive Shadow pack was founded by a now
ex-therian sane female who was unsatisfied with the condition of Razgriz Pack. Leadership has changed three times: from the original founder, later to a dogg, and finally, another female dawg therian.
The site is down and moved to Pariah Pack II. http://reclusiveshadowspack.webs.com
- Freedom Runners Pack
Founded in 2008, Freedom Runners was another major pack around the 2009 "boom" of physical shifters. Founded by a female wolf therian, the site has as well changed leadership several times. It is currently under the control of a relatively new male wolf therian, who has gained leadership simply from the fact of being friends with the leader.
The site remains semi-active. http://freedomrunnerspack.webs.com
- Howling Jaws Pack
Founded by a female wolf therian, Howling Jaws was another therian website that had a long history of roleplaying. The site was assaulted several times with members carrying notions of prophesied Armageddon, Demi-Gods, and the like.
The site doesn't exist anymore. http://howlingjaws.webs.com
