The low-lying valley within Amethyst Grove is like a breath of sweet relief and fresh air. The terrain is lush and forgiving, and the wide body of flowing water down the center of the territory has become the centerpiece for Vermeda Brook. The majority of the land is defined by tall green grasses and open fields, but the perimeter is guarded by the forest's mighty pines, defining the pride land. Though it is a simple and unassuming place at first, the idyllic atmosphere is unmatched and makes for a comfortable home.

01. Though Nymeria is the ultimate authority, all major pride decisions should first be discussed as a group.
02. Vermeda is a community, not a hierarchy. Everyone is expected to care for, protect, and respect one another.
03. Quarrels within Vermeda that threaten the integrity of the pride will not be tolerated. Any issues can be brought to Nymeria for counsel.
04. Any outsiders (especially non-natives) found crossing Vermeda's borders should be immediately detained, by any means necessary, and brought to the High ranks for questioning.
05. Allies are to be treated with the utmost respect. Enemies can be met with aggression as necessary.
06. Claiming is not encouraged, and is only tolerable if it is done to protect vulnerable children.
07. The Sovereign of the pride is authorized to fight on the High Sovereign's behalf, and is able to defend pride challenges, invite members, releases lionesses and defend against theft. Furthermore, if the High Sovereign is to fail leadership requirements, the pride may pass into the Sovereign's possession. If they cannot take it, then the pride will pass onto the Heir, should they be of age.

|Vermeda Brook History|
THERE'S WOLVES IN THE HOUSE — A rogue lion rises up in hopes of taking the crown of Ecrosia Mire from Vine Casimir. This is the first challenge taken in an attempt to overthrow the current ruler, and so it is likely that many will turn up to watch the monumental - and potentially consequential - events unfold.
EVERMORE — In light of some new changes (both personal and pride related), Nymeria calls together a meeting alongside Heiress Talisa. Hoping that it will be a chance to catch up and perhaps shuffle the ranks a bit, the Valours are looking forward to the impending next chapter.
AND SHE WILL RISE — Talisa, who had recently professed her love to Morrigan Greyflood, seeks out her paramour to share the news of her new responsibilities. Talks spiral into that of children, prompting the appearance of the mighty Maua before hte couple. After an assessment of their strong bond, the deity is gracious enough to grant them wisp cubs, which will soon be running around Vermeda.
DARKNESS TURNS TO LIGHT — After noticing a shift in Talisa, Nymeria approaches her younger sister hoping to connect and discuss the future of their pride and family. After coming to an understanding, the High Sovereign decides that it is time to give her kin more responsibility and places her as Vermeda's Heiress, hoping that her steadfast devotion and open heart will serve the pride well.
BREAKING BREAD BETWEEN FRIENDS — Caladan Cove has organized an event for their pride and its allies, meaning that the inhabitants of Vermeda have a good excuse to go enjoy some festivities by the beach! A dance, a feast, and a midnight firefly show are all on the agenda, offering a good opportunity to bond and mingle with the established coastal pride.
SANCTUARY — Walthari and Poppy, both of whom are refugees following the recent disbanding of Wolfbron Bluffs and Andal Oasis, arrive on Vermeda's doorstep hoping for a new home. Accompanied by Demetria and Aurum, Nymeria intends to use them as council for the decision, though she knows that Talisa would vouch for the pair as well, if she were present.
SHOW ME THE MEANING OF BEING LONELY — Following the public fall-out between Nymeria, Roan, and Furia at the claim for Andal Oasis, the High Sovereign seeks them out in hopes of reconciling their differences, unsure of what warranted the animosity. Hanneth, who had been absent while caring for her husband, happens upon the group, only to share the news that Nymeria had been the one to save Dero and provide them refuge on Vermeda's borders. Will this news change anything for the two families? Only time will tell.
SECOND TIME'S A CHARM, RIGHT? — Valhalla takes his second shot at attempting to build a second native pride in the wake of the newly disbanded Andal Oasis, bringing in a large crowd of spectators to the event. Unfortunately, things quickly spiral as Furia and Roan speak out against the Brook, scolding them for their hesitance to welcome foreigners into their ranks. Confused and torn by the accusations, both Nymeria and Talisa find themselves struggling with a wave of newfound emotions.
EVERY EVENTUALITY — Though the meeting is a tad overdue, Vine Casimir, High Sovereign of Ecrosia Mire, arrives on Vermeda's doorstep to discuss the potential of relations between the two prides. How will these kingdoms, built on vastly different values and ideals, be able to find common ground?
EAGLE SOAR — In a shocking turn of events, Wolfbron Bluffs becomes overrun by a band of hyenas, driving out and disbanding the pride. From the ashes, Vermeda's very own Aquila Valour stakes claim on the lands, hoping to extend the reign of the native community and provide stability. Though a challenger is quick to rise up against him, surely Maua is watching the challenger unfold.
LOST JOURNEY — As the dust settles from the disbandment of Scilla Lagoon, Nymeria makes it her mission to track down what has become of Vasilis, considering that is disappearance struck her as odd and rather sudden. After a long journey into Illere's Freeze, she finds him within one of the icy caverns, accompanied by a few others, but seemingly clouded in confusion. What will become of the once-king now?
NEXT OF KIN — Surely a shock to the whole valley, Scilla Lagoon has disbanded, with Vasilis gone with the wind and seemingly nowhere to be found. Concerned for the man that she considered to be a friend and confidant, Nymeria attends the claim, made by Pistis, who is a vaguely familiar face from the Pit.
HEATHENOUS — In a surprising change of pace, Kimagure, the new high sovereign of Firnen Rainforest, otps to pay Vermeda a visit with her consult Avreya in tow. Though cautious from the fight and small verbal hash with Valhalla, Nymeria approaches the conversation with the two women with an open, and inquiring, mind.
THE WAKING, THE RISING — Knowing nothing about Obsidian Hollow, other than the fact that she had been warned of its previous ruler, Nymeria succumbs to her curiosity and opts to pay the secluded pride a visit, hoping to learn more about the new regime.
THE HEAT THAT DRIVES THE LIGHT — After a productive meeting with Faust and Walthari in the days prior, Nymeria and Aurum make their way to the mountainous pride in hopes of establishing more defined pride relations with their neighbours. Hopefully, considering their interwoven history, they will be able to find common ground.
SCUBA STEVE — Nymeria gets a special and unsuspected visit from Valhalla, who is in desperate need of some advice and guidance from the Valour woman. Unbeknown to the High Sovereign, however, he has also brought along Asterin, who happens to be his newly adopted daughter. Surprise!
PLAYING KEEP AWAY — In the aftermath of the claim on Ecrosia Mire, the voodoo queen herself, Heloise, finds herself seeking refuge on Vermeda's borders. Though Heloise's animosity with the new king of swamp is certainly far from over, Nymeria hopes to offer her salvation, temporary or otherwise.
MAN THROUGH THE PEEPHOLE — Following up on the agreement made between Faust and Nymeria, Walthari returns to Vermeda in hopes to gain more knowledge on healing and the ways of Maua. Always the gracious hostess, he is met by Talisa Valour, who offers to share her beliefs and experience with the afterlife and lore of the valley.
RED DAWN AT MORNING — High Sovereign Faust and his pridemate Walthari, from the newly established Wolfbron Bluffs, arrive at Vermeda's borders to warn Nymeria of a dangerous rogue in the area. Concerned about the welfare of the northern prides, Nymeria hopes to establish some sort of understanding and bring peace between their two kingdoms, should violence continue to spread across the valley.
I SHALL FEAR NO EVIL — A rogue challenger rises up, attempting to stake claim on Firnen Rainforest, which sends the valley into another small frenzy. Much to the relief of Vermeda Brook, however, Valhalla looks to contest the newcomer in an attempt to establish Amaryllis' second native pride. What will this mean for them?
ONE LADY TO ANOTHER — The High Sovereign of Caladan Cove, Jewel Khulani, makes an appearance at the borders of Vermeda Brook. Nymeria is first to arrive, wanting to know more about the other female leader, and rather curious as to what her intentions are.
WE ARE IN NEED — Following Hanneth Hodari's first interaction with Amaryllis' natives, the bronze woman finally makes her way to the pride, looking for council and another meeting with Nymeria. Unbeknownst to Vermeda Brook, however, Hanneth's visit carries more weight than any of them are anticipating or are prepared to handle.
WHERE I LONG TO BE — Looking for some repose and guidance, Nymeria, Talisa, and Demetria make their way to Hidden Grotto, hoping to reconnect with their ethereal father, Daario.
LONG LIVE THE KING — A man, tattered and bruised, arrives upon the Brook’s doorstep, claiming of an ambush at Obsidian Hollows. It prompts further wariness from Nymeria about the cavernous pride, as she attempts to decipher the details of what led to the kingdom’s downfall.
THEREFOR I AM — After several weeks of contemplation and observation, Nymeria has finally called Vermeda Brook together for a pride meeting. The foreigners continue to weigh heavily on all of their minds, and she hopes to find clarity, guidance, and unity with her kin so that they are prepared for what is to come.
SMALL HANDS — In an effort to celebrate and bring the pride together, Demetria has initiated the first, formal, Vermeda Brook pride hunt. All are welcomed to feast, relax, and enjoy an afternoon without worries.
CURIOUSIER & CURIOUSER — Nymeria continues to do her rounds of the new prides, this time with Demetria in tow as the sisters head out into the depths of the desert. They are greeted by Fionn, High Sovereign of Andal Oasis -- and they certainly have a lot of questions for one another.
THE ANSWER — What started out as a simple pride challenge for Scilla Lagoon, quickly escalated into a violent squabble between some of the spectators. Several members of Vermeda gathered on the sidelines to watch the spectacle unfold, with mixed emotions. Some excited about the change of pace and newcomers, while others are uneasy at their unrest and turmoil.
