November 22nd, 2023 Two death matches, one resurrection, and an almost-war later, the lands find themselves in a constant state of turmoil and calamity. Families have been torn apart and endless blood has been spilt; but how is it all going to end?

November 3rd, 2023 The lands stir violently as a death match rages on between Aeistrios Saxe and Morrigan Greyflood. Observers spill into the pit in droves to witness what will no doubt be a historic battle -- and it is clear that this familial fued is far from over, no matter who wins and who dies.

October 12th, 2023 With winter comes the surge of more pride challenges; Ludivine challenges Ryker for Firnen Rainforest and is victorious in her endeavors, meanwhile an outcropping of maims breaks out on the sidelines. In a shocking turn of events Luther returns to challenge Bruno for Ecrosia Mire, will the former heir prove victorious or has Bruno got what it takes to keep his brother's ambitions at bay? This has undoubtedly shaken things up as Bruno declares war against Andal Oasis and Allies in the process!

September 26th, 2023 A series of pride challenges spark up across the peninsula, while warring families face-off as tensions reach their boiling points. Anthonius Savante barely manages to escape the clutches of Apollinaire Dieudonne with his life, while death looms over the broken truce between the Valour-Greyflood and Saxe families.

September 4th, 2023 After Tinúviel collapsed at the Wolfbron Bluff's challenge, she was unable to make it back to the Lagoon to take up her leadership position again and the pride disbands. Diomedeidae & Cirilla fight for the pride.

August 28th, 2023 Both Amara and Morrigan keep their prides. Lachesis doesn't show to defend the Brook and Renfri takes over. The Wolfbron Bluffs challenge seems to be setting off fireworks already.

August 15th, 2023 The two longest standing female leaders are both fighting for their prides once again. Anthonius challenges Amara for the Bluffs. Amaroq challenges Morrigan for the Summit. A new leader faces his first challenge as Renfri challenges Lachesis for the Brook. Did anyone think that peace was something the island was able to have?

August 1st, 2023 Conflict, drama, love, and loss - the lands are never free from any of it for more than a fleeting moment. As the summer months wane on and the season nears its end, there is no telling what is coming next upon the horizon.

June 19th, 2023 With the rains leaving and spring upon the island, things are heating up among the lions. Bruno seeks to unseat his father in the Mire. Helah looks to dethrone Scorpius in the Oasis and keep the fire between the Bluffs and the Oasis alive. The Plains have raided the Brook and allies on both sides showed up to help.

May 23rd, 2023 All is fair in love and war - moments of chaos and peace lull in a cyclical nature across the lands of Amaryllis, though most are wise enough to know that the quiet never lasts quite long enough.

April 20th, 2023 Alexander manages to win the Hollows and Tiamat keeps the Lagoon. Vághan challenges Amara for the Bluffs but Amara is able to hold off another challenger and keeps the Bluffs. The Cove was hit by a storm that washed away it's leader leaving the lands open to be claimed by Nephthys and Keligan who both are attached to the land. Cirilla attempts to take the Oasis from Scorpius who seems driven to keep the land.

April 5th, 2023 It doesn't take long for the dust to kick up as the Hollows is challenged for by Alexander once again and the Lagoon is challenged for by Fernweh.

March 31st, 2023 As wars and challenges continue to break out across the lands, Amaryllis is certainly keeping up with its turbulent reputation. One can only hope that the dust will settle soon enough - for everyone's sake.

March 10th, 2023 The turbulance of the prides never ceases for very long, as a violent landslide forces the members of Firnen Rainforest to evacuate and disband. Who will step up for the throne this time around?

March 1st, 2023 While Gauthier manages to retain control of Caladan Cove, Lorien Plains' fate is not so simple. With Aeistrios overthrowing Violarum and taking the pride's throne, how will things unravel from here?

February 20th, 2023 Even though the last batch of pride challenges did not succeed in shifting most of the political tides in Amaryllis, it did not deter ambitious souls from seeking out thrones of their own. The fates of both Lorien Plains and Caladan Cove now hang in the balance, stirring further unrest as a result.

January 25th, 2023 It seems that the island wasn't ready for new leaders to take over right away as Vermier keeps ahold of the Hollows and Cassandra keeps the Brook in the family. The steadiness doesn't last long as a blistering sand storm rolls through the Oasis, leaving it empty until Ronin and Scorpius take up battle to see who will claim the lands.

January 16th, 2023 After battling for their prides, all current leaders remain with their crowns. Amara successfully wins a challenge for the Bluffs for the third time. Morrigan wins her first battle after a year of leading the Summit, the relations between the Mire and Summit seem to have splintered as war breaks out. Ryker battles a familiar face in Leander for the Oasis and manages to keep his crown and denies a family the ability to get back to it. Alexander battles Vermier for the Hollows, a move that causes Ryker to drop his attachements to Alexander's family.

January 9th, 2023 After peace seemed to settle over the island the warm air and lifting of the rains brings out the challenges for prides. The Lagoon gains new leaders. The Oasis leader, Ryker fights to keep his pride from Leander. Amara, the oldest leader in the island once again fights to keep the Bluffs, this time against Arkyn. While Cassandra fights against Aeistrios to keep the Brook in the paws of family and friends.

December 19th, 2022 In a bold move, Amara of Wolfbron Bluffs has taken King Alizabeth prisoner after she was attacked by some mammoths. This has left Scilla Lagoon empty of it's leader once again.

December 16th, 2022 Spring works it's way to the island and with the coming of warmer weather it seems that the island has calmed and for the moment allowed things to settle.

November 29th, 2022 The winter season has proven to be brutal and unforgiving as the weather pushes the lions of Scilla Lagoon from their home, once again leaving the pride vulnerable for claiming. This time, Ronin is looking for the opportunity to rule, though he is quickly countered by Alizabeth, who is hoping to reclaim what was once her's.

November 11th, 2022 After Alizabeth left the Lagoon to find her cub and ended up falling ill, the pride has found itself at the center of another challenge and war. Prometheus and Recluse fought to see who would lead Scilla Lagoon, with Recluse reigning victorious, while the lions of Wolfbron Bluffs extend their reach with Vermier as the new High Sovereign of Obsidian Hollows. With so many changes to the leaders of Amaryllis, what is ahead for the island?

November 8th, 2022 "When will this end?" you may ask yourself as you are thrust in between worlds once more. This time, however, you are not simply floating in the nothingness or above the land you call home. No. It is snippets of visions that pay now before you as if you're there. As if it isn't just a memory of a time long gone. Their piercing eyes gaze at you. You are taken aback out of fear or maybe awe. Somehow you know deep within your heart the identity of this loner: Kivuli. When you awake, the memory of the fury in their gaze remains burned within your mind.

October 22nd, 2022 An earthquake has resulted in parts of Obsidian Hollow to fall in, trapping Roan in the process as he sought to evacuate the others. In the aftermath, Vermier and Revna waste no time moving in to make their claim for the newly vacant territory.

October 17th, 2022 It is happening again - you are thrust into this in-between of worlds, the tendrils of mist swirling before you like hungry serpents. You can almost feel them tickle your sides and wrap around your ankles -- "I am Kivuli," the strange chorus of voices responds firmly, their fury brimming at the tip of their words. It is powerful and intense, like a titanous wave about to crash and leave everything in ruin. "... and I will take back what is mine." What is coming for the island? Will there be enough support to keep Maua as the stronger deity or will Kivuli take over?

October 8th, 2022 A rumble is felt on the eastern side of the island, prompting violent waves to crash into the lands of Caladan Cove and driving out the lions that once lived there. Days pass before the ocean calms and settles once again, but the lions that were once there are now gone, and the pridelands are open for a new ruler.

October 7th, 2022 Alizabeth remains the leader of Scilla Lagoon whilst Seneca loses his battle to Ryker for Andal Oasis. Will the outcome of these battles shape how the island works together in the coming days? With new leaders also taking over Lorien Plains (Ghyslaine) and Vermeda Brook (Cassandra), things could be on edge once again.

October 1st, 2022 Something takes hold of those living on the island - - shared vision or dream that seems to shake the core of what they have come to know. Accompanied with a strange voice within their minds, those who came to Amaryllis long ago, guided by Maua's voice, will feel a pagne of familiarity. Only this time, the voice is different and chilling. What is coming?

The rain is slowly peetering out across the lands, though it is still heaviest in the east and lightest in the west. Thankfully, however, the temperature is steadly rising and the sun no longer hides behind the clouds. In celebration of the new season, the vegetation is alive and lush and plants are growing wildly across the valley. Spring is in the air!

The obsidian ghoul had seldom returned to the jungle canopy since the fall of Ecrosia from Jafar's control and Keir's subsequent uprising. His time had more recently been spent at the shore, but however much he tried he could not quite get used to the taste of salted air and the shifting earth beneath his heavy paws.
For this reason he sought familiarity today. But as he rooted aimlessly through the jungle foliage, inexplicably those large feet did not take him south to the swampland but instead north toward the rainforest, a pride territory he had only previously known by the strong markers of its border.

Nostrils flared as he sought out that pungent scent, fruitless in his endeavour, the giant moved onward traversing a foliage heavy and obstacle ridden terrain, passing a boundary that no longer existed. The area smelled fresh, washed clean somehow. His roving teal gaze found evidence of flooding in some parts, which perhaps gave him all the answer he required. He has seen this before, a pride chased away by the force of nature.

Ransom shouldered his way into a small clearing, just ten minutes or so beyond the washed out border. The lion stood for a moment, paused in thought, taking in the obvious opportunity. It was not the lagoon that Alizabeth had loved, but it was fresh, vibrant and teeming with possibility.

Settling his thoughts, Ransom stood tall and tipped his skull back to let out a commanding roar.

Firnen is mine.

she does not know what brings her here.

she does not know what possesses her paws to come here.

@Mordecai has made them a den, a home — he has come back from the mist to build their lives anew. rising from the ashes is long overdue but finally, finally their lives have aligned together. so why is she here instead of in the gardens? why is she here instead of in his garden? she has never been the most dutiful member of his flock ( but surely the most loyal ), but today is... different.

her hands tremble, but not with fear.

as if in a trance ( for once, not because of her flowers, though the petals threaded into her mane are fresh and new ) she meanders forward through a forest still slick with heavy rain. the land here still smells acidic and wrong, a sharp edge to the vegetation. remnants of the pride scattering storm still linger in the puddles she daintily steps over and the felled trees that seem to line her path. it should all be a warning that something is horribly amiss here, but instead it feels like a sign beckoning her forward.

and then —

firnen is mine.

ransom's call shatters the fragile peace of this place, rumbling through her consciousness slowly. as if she was underwater, and he was calling from the shore. without even realizing it her paws divert, fluttering across the land until she stands before him — blinking owlishly at him, as if she has appeared from nothing. i am not sure, she says, eyes a little glossy at the edges but there is a strange seriousness to the delicate babe as she looks up at him. but i think you are wrong. this place was not meant for him. she is not sure if it was meant for her, either, but a voice inside her says maybe..

( she is scared to listen to that voice, but she steps forward regardless. )

i'm sorry, she says, and sounds genuinely distressed. her face, too, is screwed up in real concern — both for him, and for her. a small shake of her head is given, as if trying to shake of the nerves that skitter up her spine, before she lunges forward. talitha caelinus is not a creature meant for violence but perhaps it is not her who is in control today. perhaps those petals, daintily threaded into her mane, obscure more of her vision than even she realizes. that would explain some things, surely.

she does not think to dodge or juke the lion before her — instead, she intends to approach him straight on. her tufted ears slip into her mane without thinking as she leans her head down, hoping to make herself as small as possible, as if to ram him. she does not, but her front paws lunge forward regardless — attempting to scour each of his front forelegs with her own paws, claws unsheathed as she attempts to bring about physical pain for the first time in her life.

there is just something about this forest....

Another day, another challenge. @Ransom's call for the Rainforest was less than expected, having not been aware of the pride being forced from their home so recently. The Hodari was curious all the same. While he expected to see the ebony lion fighting against Zoticus, the closer he got to the familiar rainforest, the more evident it appeared that the lands had been abandoned. The scents were completely washed out. This was not a challenge. It was a claim.

Hm, so who would take up the fight if anyone at all? Though Roan didn't know Ransom in the least, he remembered the male as someone who had supported Keir in his attempt to overthrow Alaric for the Mire. By the time the Hodari had made his way through the jungle, the fight was already at its beginning with a strange woman diving headfirst into the fray. Knowing nothing of the tiny female, Roan was inclined to support the male he assumed to be Keir's kin as the mauve lion found himself a seat somewhere out of the way. He did not purposely seek to hide amongst the trees, but he also did not make it a point to sit out in the open either. Just curious as to what had happened here and who would be the next Firnen ruler.

Oh how she hated things like this and getting someone to go for had been wonderful but she couldn't pass this up. The ability to see Zoticus fight and maybe even get in a few punches of her own would be worth it. She left the Bluffs with a call to the pride and headed toward the Rainforest. There was a pep in her step as she went until she got closer and Zoticus's scent didn't linger as it should. Disappointment set across her features quickly but she kept on. She arrived to see two unknown lions fighting it out and one known lion watching. Was she really this early to the challenge or did others not care? She moved toward @Roan but kept enough distance that it wouldn't seem like they were there together. Think he died? That would solve a lot of issues for them. Her golden gaze looked toward Roan as a smirk rolled over her features. If he did, pity I wasn't there to see it. That would have been a wonderful meal indeed. She kept her words vague so if others arrived they would be left guessing but she felt safe that Roan would figure it out based on their standing with each other surrounding the former leader here.

Amara is M rated.

Roan wasn't usually so early to a fight like this, but maybe he was just that eager to see Zoticus have to defend his title already. It was almost disappointing not to get to see the pink bastard fight for the Rainforest that had caused the mauve lion such strife. Frankly, it wasn't worth fighting over anymore, in Roan's opinion. He wasn't left to watch by himself for long, however, before @Amara ♔ came near with her own opinions. With no one else being around just yet, the Hodari wasn't opposed to sharing in her smirk. "One can hope," he chuckled quietly. It was unusual for a Hodari to wish death upon another lion, but it really would just make things easier if Zoticus just.... went away. The smirk on his lips widened just a smidge at the speckled woman's disappointment if she had missed the death of the pink lion. "Well, here's hoping you haven't missed the fun," Roan returned. He wasn't usually one for such banter, but with their shared dislike of the former Firnen ruler, the Hodari felt comfortable shooting the breeze as they watched the start of the fight.

"Know anything about either of them?" the masked man finally questioned something that might actually be helpful to them. He was only vaguely aware of Ransom, and knew absolutely nothing of the maned female. Maybe Amara had some insights she wouldn't mind sharing.

She follows after Amara, though she harbors more curiosity than disdain. She recalls Zoticus well enough — she remembers standing up to his army alone, ready to do anything to defend her home. She remembers the way Dorian had worried after her, worried for her fate. What would he think of her now, all grown and every bit the warrior he feared she would become? Funny how the world works that way.

Considering the distance they must travel, it's surprising that they are among the first to arrive; though, as ever, there is already contention for the Rainforest. Beelzebub eyes the fighting pair for a moment, finding herself amused by the colossal difference in size between them. She somewhat hopes the woman wins, if only because she is impressed by her vigor.

She makes her way to @Amara ♔'s side, offering a mildly curious glance towards @Roan who she seems to be chattering with in a vaguely friendly manner. Friendly for Amara, anyway. "It's as Asmund foretold. Our enemies fall by the day," she mentions quietly, her mismatched gaze returning the fighters, exuding a calm. Every moment of her months spent trapped in a realm away have led to this, a culmination of her visions, a promise of the path she must follow. Beelzebub has never been more certain of herself than she is now.

Non-family should only refer to Beelzebub as "Bee." She is very superstitious about revealing her full name and will not do so unless you are extremely trusted.

Each day that passed meant she was older, more grown, and feeling the pull of duty more and more. Louve wanted nothing more than to be a valuable asset to her family, a tool they could use to reach great heights — heights she one day saw herself being at the peak of. The girl watched her mother closely, keen to learn the way of a leader so that one day she could be one of them.

Today that means she follows to the source of the claim that rang across Amaryllis. The rainforest had been an enemy, she knew, and so it was a good thing that it was up for grabs, right? Louve studied her mothers face, listened to her words and determined that yes, it was good news.

Not wanting to get in the way — or seem like a needy child — she sits a pace away from the Wolfbron queen. Yellow eyes settle in the fight, watching as a girl leaps in to fight a male, and instinctively rooting for the fairer sex. Unless mother named her an enemy, that is.

Amara half expected Roan to climb up on his high and mighty horse but was pleasantly surprised as he joined her in his desire for their common foe to be dead. It would likely end things between them but given how things seemed to be shifting, that may have been on the horizon anyways. She raised a brow as he gave her back the possibility of Zoticus being alive and her mind started to play on things some. Time will tell. She doubted that if the pink lion was still alive that he would stay in the shadows long. Amara glanced toward Bee as she spoke. Amara was still unsettled anytime one of the sisters brought up their gods, even more so after finding out what the Sigurin do for theirs. She huffed slightly before answering @Roan. I don't know either of them. She admitted before looking toward her daughter. It seemed for the moment that they were in good company. She figures her lack of interest in hiding their chatter would clue Roan in that Amara trusted those with them now. Neither seem to have a scent from a pride either. Are you and your family still attached to these lands? She asked him as her focused flicked between the fight and him. A lot had happened but maybe deep down they wanted to get back to a Jungle type pride like they had been before coming here. Or maybe the memories were to much and the coldness of the caves suited them better.

Amara is M rated.

It had not been long since he was last here. Trekking in with Zoticus's blessing to see Astrid, to see her health and confirm what news the former Sovereign had brought to the Brook. As happy as he was to hear new voices tussling over the Rainforest a deep, creeping, worried sensation began to worm its way through his heart. Were Astrid, Pandora, and Jerrik safe? Without clue where to begin to look Aquila followed the voices towards the beginning of the fight, towards the gathering crowd and immediately to Roan, and the gathering crowd of Wolfbron lions at his side. Magnus's voice echoed in the corners of his mind- of the Sigrun's issue with the Wolfbron lions, the Dieudonne he'd called them. And of the promise Aquila himself had made for the lion's sake. He approached them from behind, aiming to stop at the rear of the group and softly rumbled a deep growl.

Astrid... He had to figure out if she was safe first. Conflicting alliances could wait, Magnus's war and issues could wait. It was nice though to be on this side of things, comfortable and secure no matter who was around. Unlike when he'd see Magnus with Zoticus... not knowing if he could trust the lion fully. Astrid... "I need to find three lions that resided here- a family. Astrid, striped and speckled wheat woman. Pandora. Their son. Have there been any signs of members?" He asked aloud to the group, narrowing his angry, worried, silver eyes past them and over the fight itself into the jungle behind.
