Connected to the mainland by an isthmus, Scilla Lagoon has only one way in and out, and the remainder of the territory is left to relax and unwind, without the threat of unwanted or sneaking visitors. Fittingly, the island is decorated with tall palm trees and flocks of bright, exotic brids, constantly passing between overheard branches and other perches. Shallow lagoons scatter themselves across the open beach and lightly-packed foliage, surrounded by brilliant white sands and shored by coral reefs.
|CURRENT PRIDE TIER:|
May 8th New! Gwyn has called a meeting to announce Wodnik's new position, other ranks, and officially announce Pistis' poof to the pride. Tenley, an old flame of his has been added to the ranks as well.
May 3rd Gwyn managed to tempt Lyra and Pollux into the ranks so please welcome them. Wodnik and Walpurgis are soon to be refugees to the lagoon and Vine turned down Gwyn's request to shelter with him. Speaking of the fallen Casimir king, the one that got away(Kalahari) has started to tempt Gwyn now that Pistis is officially gone. You may notice him slightly less mopey/in a better mood but he's still not okay. I'm in the process of slogging through threads but I plan to make official pride meeting on Wednesday to update everyone etc because I should be more or less caught up then. I do hope to be more active with the pride/pride events shortly. Thank you all for being patient with me <3.
Old...April 29nd Please welcome Vesper, join in on the pride hunt, and be patient with me because still playing catch up after busy work stretch. Also the mire has fallen. Please stand by for Casimir family drama and fall out.
April 22nd Pistis still hasn't been found and Saph has been super busy with work, sorry guys. Hopefully later on this week or so I'll be able to get that meeting up. Jewel and Gwyn are hashing out the alliance, we are welcoming Hera into the fold(And perhaps others), and Gwyn has run into an old flame. Saph is also too lazy to link today as well, sorry about that.
April 15th Pistis has all but disappeared and Gwyn... Really isn't taking it well. His daughter's Siofra and Lilith are stepping up to help. The cove is throwing a party, which is a solemn affair when he shares the news with Jewel but the rest of y'all go have fun. Also both Vine and Kimagure are paying the pride a visit for alliances. Planning on calling a meeting soon when I am not a sleep zombie so keep an eye out for that.
April 9th Europa has washed up on our shores, Food has been gotten, and Pistis has stepped down so now Gwyn has the High Sovereign crown. Also saph is feeling lazy and doesn't want to link stuff right now, so links pending.
It's not an april fools joke, Gwyn has successfully invited a new member Dym into the pride. Please give her a warm welcome, and don't forget about the monthly pride hunt here . Meanwhile, there seems to be trouble in paradise as the cosovereign couple are having a spat over Xerxes
March 31st, Y5
Pistis goes to visit Magnus about an alliance!
(3/24) Not much has happened as Pistis and her family settle into Scilla Lagoon, look out for a pride hunt soon!
(3/17) After a rather bloody yet anticlimactic battle, Pistis wins the title of High Sovereign of Scilla Lagoon! What will be her first steps to outline her pride? Will she gain new recruits or recruit old friends?
1. If the High Sovereign should fail their requirements, the pride may be passed on to the Soverign or Heir, if applicable.
2. Abuse of any kind is not tolerated in Scilla Lagoon. If it is found you are abusing another member, or those outside the pride, you shall be punished and subsequently chased out.
3. Should you be found guilty of force breeding, the minimum punishment is banishment, any extra punishment will be determined by the victim’s family and at Gwyn's own discretion.
4.Trespassing is to be met with firm, possibly violent repellence. If the trespasser is female or a cub and unclaimed claim their butts because they surely must wish to join if they are so bold to ignore our borders. Those within are to feel safe and the level of violence or friendliness depends on the interloper but in general such disrespect is not tolerated.
5. Claiming is allowed with the caveat, that after a month of giving the pride a chance, the claimee is allowed to ask to be traded to an allied pride. Gwyn also expects you to handle your own business, and if you do not think you can defend your claim, do not claim. Do not claim from beneath allies. Also, invitations are generally more successful as he has been discovering so offer first, and claim if they decide to be belligerent.
6. Gwyn is open to feedback in private and all are welcome to voice their concerns. Do not challenge him in public, and once he has laid down the law, do not fight it. Disrespecting this will likely earn you the honor of being made example of.
7. Rank will be given based on merit and effort. Gender plays a small role in ranks, but if a woman proves herself worthy Gwyn expects you to respect her opinion and rules unless they are nonsensical. Women in general are allowed to voice their concerns, and while he does not expect male Casimir to be as liberal as he, he does expect them to at least listen and consider what they say. If its logical, do not ignore the advice or order just because of their gender.
8. Love is fairly unrestricted in Scilla, as long as everything is consensual. If you or your partner falls pregnant, please inform leadership.
9. The Heir and Sovereign are to be respected. An insult to them is like an insult to Gwyn and one does not "simply" insult Gwyn.
10. Make sure you do your part! Participate in hunts and patrols, take care of the cubs, collect herbs, whatever suits you most! No one should be a freeloader and all should work to better the pride.
11. All unattached women are under Gwyn's protection and should know that he will likely flirt with them because he's a greedy butt. You are welcome to turn him down for he does understand no.
12. The pride is no longer a shelter. Sorry folks, the pride is for those in the ranks only. It's a family and loyalty is expected and disloyalty is punished for sharing information with those outside the pride presents a danger for all within.
13. Do not bring trouble to our doorstep. Gwyn expects you to handle your own issues. He also does not want war, or animosity with other prides if he can help it; if the leader doesn't like him that's fine, just don't escalate things beyond discontent.
14. Gwyn is likely going to be a bit... twitchy about anyone eyeing any of her his lovers from now on. Take care and don't push him... he's not inclined to suffer slights.

|SCILLA LAGOON History|
Weaving, Overdue — Gwyn has been barely hanging on when help and company comes from an unexpected source. Immediately after that encounter, feeling a fair bit better than he has in a while, he goes to feel out politics at the Oasis.
There's wolves in the house -- Gwyn's cousin(for lack of a better word) is challenged by Kiton and looses. Drama brews between his relative and a claim while Gwyn himself is worried about the unexpected help mentioned above, Kalahari. She had escaped Vine after all and is now helping to get the claim, Aarani to the safety of the rainforest's borders.
Are We There Yet?, Growth — Refugees from Vine's pride Wodnik and Walpurgis join. The former is offered heir the latter proves rather vexing and Gwyn really has no idea what to make of her. Shortly afterward he calls a pride meeting to announce the changes in rank... And the fact Pistis has officially disappeared.
Grim News, I Challenge You to a Dance Off — The cove throws a bash, and Gwyn and others from the lagoon arrive to have a bit of fun. Except the High Sovereign comes baring the bad news of Pistis's disappearance and rehashes out the alliance.
Hell Hath no Fury —Gwyn and Pistis have an argument over Xerxes, who really doesn't like his stepfather and vice versa to the point Gwyn threatens him. Pistis is not pleased and has it out with her mate.
Next of Kin — After Vasilis’ disappearance, Pistis Casimir, his Noble and lover, vies for the throne and wins her crown. She explains that this land was claimed to protect her children and her pridemates, and expects to rule it well. Will there be any bad blood or objections to her ruling?
Political Progress— Pistis heads to Obsidian Hollow to attempt to make an alliance (or some good relation) with King Magnus. She is greeted by his noble, Avdotya, who she actually takes a liking to quite easily.
What I shouldn't do I will! — Vasilis catches wind of a Trespasser that enters the lagoon. It is a young lion but regardless Vasilis treats him with caution and tells him to leave. It seems the young boy is not familiar with the terms of the Lagoon and so Vasilis informs the boy of the rules.
SL monthly Pride Hunt — A flock of Great Bustards arrive at the Lagoon and Vasilis is the first to spot the lingering winged pheasants. Can Vasilis take them on all by himself? Or will more of the Lagoon pride show up to help take a few of these delicious birds down?
Then let amorous kisses dwell on our lips — Vasilis has made Pistis a Noble and the two have started to consider themselves lovers. How will this fair with Gwyn and the other family members that remain under the Lagoon's name? Only time will tell!
I was a mistake if nature, and so I'll become a beast of one! — One of Gwyn's children, Balrog, shows up at the Lagoon borders to vent and yell at Pistis. Gwyn himself shows alongside Xerxes. What will this do for the Casimir family? Will tensions only rise? Or will an end be met?
As we Start! — Pistis has gone into labor! The first to arrive is no other than Siofra and Vasilis! How will the birth go? With Gwyn still nowhere to be found, Vasilis remains faithful in determination to aid and help the silver woman and her children.
Knock - Knock! Anybody home? — Curious after the fall of the Hollow King Gwyn, a week passes and Vasilis heads to the Hollow to find out if it remains empty or if someone has claimed it. What will he find?
Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. — Vasilis heads to the Oasis to talk to Fionn about all that has happened since their alliance, to get advice from a friend as well as figure where to go from there. He tells the man of his fight with Skarde and warns the pink king of the man and his .....actions against Metzli.
I'm Not O-fucking-kay — While gathering herbs for Pistis and her childbirth - Vasilis witnesses the plummeting near-death of Xerxes a child he had known as Ambrosines adopted child but Pistis firstborn. Why was the child thrown from the cliffs? Vasilis moves to examine the child but soon finds himself in the midst of a severe panic attack.
QUASAR — Vasilis sneaks into the claim of Ecrosia Mire where he witnesses the challenger be non-other than the very lion who had harmed and previously held a claim over Metzli. Raging with anger Vasilis remains hidden to witness and listen in to the conversations of those who attend and watch the fight from his murky depths of the swamp.
Reunion — Pistis and Vasilis are doing border patrol when a wounded and very much missing Gwyn appears at his door. The man faints momentarily and Jewel offers to help move him if needed. Will Vasilis allow the man passage or tell him he must go, injuries and all? With tensions high, Pistis rocky with her feelings to her husband and a missing wife - what will happen next?
Blindness in battle is nothing out of the way. — Vasilis hears word on the wind about another new pride to the north and quickly makes his way to learn about it. He heads to the Rainforest and is welcomed by a wounded Kimagure - but Vasilis can't figure out HOW or WHERE he has seen the new rainforest's Sovereign from.
Pain behind blue eyes! — Vasilis heads to the Mire the following day after the challenge between the dark man who had attacked and mistreated Metzli went after the red Casimir. Will this Casimir king rule and behave the same way that Gwyn had while he was king of the Hollows?
Feel like a Party? — When your best friends with your allies what do you do? You help them out! Vasilis heads to the Oasis to help fill up their food storage. He calls for Fionn and Sweet Pea and hopes to catch up with the duo - two birds one stone right? Right!
But, at least for a short while, it was a beautiful lie, — Vasilis calls for the first Mandatory Official pride meeting for the Lagoon, its visitors, its temporary members, it's currently new and long term guests and its ranked members. It's time to start moving forward with the news of all the new leaders popping up along with giving out ranks and duties!
Ive seen better — Vasilis goes in search of new recruits, but instead today, Vasilis finds himself gaining a temporary Guest to the Lagoon instead. How long will this guest stay he wonders?
Runaway! — Pistis rushes to the Lagoon not soon after does the High Sovereign of the Cove also come behind offering support to the very pregnant Casimir wife. Vasilis arrives greeting the pair with fear and caution, What had happened?! It is soon found out that Gwyn has disappeared from the Hollow pridelands leaving all its members to disperse and its Secondary Leader - Drakon - to challenge to take over it. What will happen to Pistis and her children? Is Gwyn gone for good or missing?!
Berlin Scars! — Siofra calls for Vasilis at the borders to find out where Pistis is, Vasilis is not so quick to tell where the pregnant mother pistis is in hiding until he finds out who she is, Then the silver woman in question finds the duo at the borders and not soon after another child of the Casimir shows up Ifri. What is Vasilis going to do with all these Casmiri women in his home?
You will remember Me — A familiar call is made within the main land, and Vasilis heads out to find that its his friend, Fionn, challenging to rule the Oasis. But something odd happens, his challenger steps up to the plate but is soon attacked by a flock of angry creatures taking its anger out on her face and eyes. Vasilis swings into action calling his lead medic Elijah to help the poor dear to the lagoon to get what aid they have help with.
Return to the Throne! — Vasilis hears a call not far from his home, he enters to find Manes, Vasilis's Gentry - Ambrosine's husband challenging for the Bluffs. But the man doesn't have a chance as an unknown face claims it as his own! Meeting up with the Oasis's Sovereign - Fionn - they both wonder how this new king will rule the bluffs.
All that was good, All that was Fair. — Vasilis visits the bluff to see what the new Sovereign of the land has to say in regards to an alliance. Will they hold a treaty? A friendly alliance? Complete allies? Vasilis also finds that the Bluffs are struck with the pest problem of a clan of Hyenae. Hmmm, interesting.
Oh, the places you will go! — Vasilis was on the hunt but finds his lost royal advisor at the waterhole and has returned with sad information that Vasilis's brother, Xisand was still missing. Vasilis takes this moment to inform Tambua of all that has happened while he was gone in search of his brother, and offers him as an official member to the Lagoon as his right-hand advisor.
I wish I could have Fought him for you, — Vasilis was asked to search for certain lions and lionesses by none other than Pistis - a cherished friend of his. And in his search, he comes across a frightened Metzli telling him to run. A battle ensue's by her captor Skarde and Vasilis wins the Dominance for Metzli's well being. He gives no idle threat to the man, telling him if he ever finds out he has harmed another woman again, that Vasilis would be there to personally remove his balls.
Finally home — Amra is found and well! She calls for Vasilis, Ambrosine, and her family to show she is free and healthy, Vasilis welcomes her as the Lagoons Lead Hunter and allows the family to talk and have their time together. How will relations between Vasilis and Zagan hold now that there is no bargaining chip between the two families?
Get that Bounty — Amra calls for the Lagoons second Pride hunt! How will she fare as the Lagoons first ever Lead hunteress?
There is no force equal to that of a determined woman. — In light of Pistis birth of her children, Vasilis has called forth a small event to embark on a ceremony to usher in protection to the children. Vasilis offers a prayer to the gods to hear his call to guide and protect Pistis and her children for a safe delivery.
For the love of my Life! — Vasilis lays claim to the Lagoon and is soon challenged by Vermier! Many come to watch the fight but is soon turned into chaos as another brawl breaks out between the Hollows Sovereign, Gwyn, and Manes over a child's misbehavior.
Desert Punks! — Elijah speaks to Vasilis at the Pride claim about healing Vasilis's wounds from his battle. But is there something else in store for the man? Vasilis has an idea but just what could it be?
Be that as it May! — Vasilis runs into Ambrosine, a woman who he had given temporary access to the Lagoon so that her kin, Vermier, Vasilis's challenger for the Lagoon's throne could heal without worry. But this was no ordinary check up - Ambrosine lets Vasilis in on some inside information regarding her family AND that of the Obsidian Hollows ways. Displeased with the information he has learned about, Vasilis makes it his mission to help Ambrosine out and allows her family to either remain as full members of the lagoon or as guests.
Will it blend? — Jewel comes to the Lagoon and seeks out Vasilis to find out just where the Lagoon and the Cove will stand between one another. But is there another reason that Jewel has come to see Vasilis?
A precious Story! — Vasilis has called to his friends, to his Allies and those who hold no home to welcome his reign as high Sovereign and to relax and enjoy a night full of story telling and sharing food as they watch the sun set along the beach!
A desert cities Sovereign — Vasilis heads to the Hollow to talk to Gwyn about a possible Alliance between Scilla and Obsidian. What will happen when he finally gets to talk to the man one on one? Will they walk away with friendly terms? Or will Vasilis leave empty handed?
You will remember me! — Vasilis hears of a call amongst the waves, curious as he always is - the man heads for the mainland and watches as an eventful change takes course, another high sovereign has taken a plot of land for their own. Who is this new leader and will he be able to strike up an alliance?
Always say Goodnight — Zagan comes to the Lagoon to talk to Vasilis about the fights between his family and the Dieudonné's. Not once but twice had the families clashed and due to events previously brought to him, Vasilis had welcomed Ambrosine and her family to the Lagoon as residents. But, there is something else behind the screens. Zagan informs Vasilis of information regarding why they had started to fight with one another, and , sought Vasilis out as a mediator between the families. What will happen next?
In these little Moments — After witnessing the claiming of the Oasis, later that night Vasilis goes to have a talk one on one with his friend, Fionn who took over the Oasis lands. They have agree'd on an Alliance and there is hope that the prides will become like brothers for one another, but is there more hidden beneath the pleasantries?
I've Seen Better & Let's See Here — Vasilis offers a temporary home for both Haniel as well as the young cub, Aarbei, until they are able to find a better suitable home for themselves. But what is this - Vasilis leanrs that Aarbei knows the Lagoons Gentry?! Is it possible that Vasilis may have a new member soon?
