Deep within the confines of Amaryllis' cave system resides Obsidian Hollow, a place of secrets and meant only for those of iron-will. Decorated with lavatubes and midnight-colored stones, one wrong turn exploring the vast tunnels can leave one perched upon the pride's doorstep, cloaked in darkness and kisses with the company of cold, damp air. Though unknown for anyone outside of the pride, the hollows are also accessible through a hidden passage on the other side of the mountain, tucked on the edge of the Badlands.
|CURRENT PRIDE TIER:|
05/05/2021 - Our numbers are about to swell further. Not only do we welcome new members Kyuubi and Weir - a welcome injection of testosterone, to say the least - but we're also about to have four little princes and princesses underfoot! Congratulations are also in order for Zoya, who has been promoted to Lead Scout; watch this space for the rank shuffle that will come with the final round of the tournament, which will be up in the next few days.
29/04/2021 - Turbulent times ahead; Magnus learns of the passing of a trusted ally and friend, and to the North Desdemona finds herself in a troubling predicament....
24/04/2021 - The second round of the pride event is up! Let's kick some ass!
22/04/2021 - The newly crowned Sovereign Nadia welcomes a new member Theodora to the pride, meanwhile Magnus also welcomes in Nadya. And in other exciting news there will be the pitter patter of little feet throughout the caverns as the royal babies have been born here.
18/04/2021 - The Hollows is no longer ruled by one solitary figure - Magnus is joined by his positively glowing fiancé, Nadia, as Sovereign. It will not be long before we hear the pitter patter of little paws within the tunnels. Our numbers grow further as more Sigrún emerge from the woodwork; welcome to Eir and Svana! We have a pride event here - a tournament -
to encourage a rank shuffle, as well as discuss the political shifting in Amaryllis. And, if you're feeling particularly ambitious (and want to get us to Tier 2) the lovely Desdemona is leading our second pride hunt.
11/04/2021 - Our ranks continue to swell; a belated welcome to Sidonie and Valerius are in order. In the wake of Magnus' fight with Gwyn Casimir, Scilla Lagoon are to be treated with caution until things either (miraculously) improve or (probably) get worse. On a lighter note, our friends in the Cove are hosting a party and we are all welcome!
05/04/2021 - It's pride hunt time! This time our quarry has a definite size advantage over us, but we definitely outnumber it! In other news, Magnus and Desdemona visit Wolfbron Bluffs, to seek counsel with its new King Zoticus.
Magnus has certain expectations of his followers; they are simple enough, but crucial. Breaking one of these rules will result in exile, or quite possibly worse.
1) Do not disobey a direct order. He does not speak for the hell of it, and he does not micro-manage, but when it comes to the running of the pride and the goings-on within it Magnus has the final say. However, in that same vein, anyone given the rank of Sovereign or Heir/ess will be almost on a par to him and if any disrespect is given to them then the High Sovereign will more than likely see it as a personal insult.
2) Do not seek to disrupt alliances or pacts without speaking to Magnus first - he will expect any issues to be brought to him before having to deal with an all-out war on his hands. Petty squabbles are one thing, but if it is a problem that could have ramifications beyond personal Magnus will expect to be informed ASAP.
3) Magnus has no problems with claiming per say, but alliances should be taken into consideration. His members will not be expected to act soft in front of others in order to avoid offending anyone, but don't, for example, steal a lioness out from under the nose of the ranked member of an allied pride. That's just foolish. Claimed or stolen members will more than likely get their freedom if they request it from Magnus personally - or his reigning Sovereign/Heir at the time - unless they have personally aggravated one of them. After all, willing followers tend to be a lot more reliable than captives, and Magnus has been around the block enough times to know this. Stealing or otherwise messing with an enemy pride is actively encouraged, but provoking unknowns willy-nilly without any forewarning will more than likely be frowned upon.
4) Any rank can be challenged for, up to the leader tier, but Magnus reserves the right to refuse anyone he does not deem as appropriate. To take on the role of Sovereign or Heir and keep it, you will have to impress the boss - he will not let just anyone rule alongside him. Read into that how you wish.
5) Any sort of unprovoked assault on another pride member will earn a severe punishment; if another pride member has wronged you, speak to Magnus beforehand. Again, he does not micromanage, and is a big believer in fighting your own battles, but forewarning is always nice (he'll need time to prepare the popcorn). Most 'petty crimes' will probably be shrugged off if committed against strangers or enemies - after all, he is not your keeper - but rape, murder of innocents, harming children etc will all earn the ire of Magnus; he's a bit of an asshole but he has a conscience.
Ultimately the rest is common sense, but if in doubt ask me OOCly or have your character ask Magnus!
