August 2nd, 2022 After working hard to calm the lands, Maua has gifted the island with two new pride territories that are safe to call home. It doesn't take long for Violarum to disband Firnen Rainforest in favour of claiming Lorien Plains, thereby leaving the jungle open for a new ruler. Maia and Aidoneus quickly move into battle to see who will lead Firnen Rainforest next, while Morrigan longs for something similar to her homeland and heads to Illyria Summit to stake her claim. Will there finally be an era of calm after so much distruction?

July 30th, 2022 The reigning leaders have managed to maintain control of their prides against their would-be usurpers, and it seems as though Maua is working on calming the disasters brought on by the influx of odd weather. What will come next has yet to be determined, including whether or not the lions of Amaryllis will be able to handle another shift in the lands.

July 15th, 2022 While the lands of Amaryllis are still stuggling with weather anomalies and strange phenomenas, some have seen it as a perfect time to try to uproot some longstanding leaders. Leander had challenged Amara for the Bluffs, Vaghan had challenged Roan for the Hollows, and Ryker has challenged Seneca for the Oasis. Will these kings and queens maintain control, or will an influx of new leadership be another thing for the lions of Amaryllis to contend with?

July 1st, 2022 Though it started as a slow and unassuming shift in the air, it soon becomes apparent that something is terribly, terribly wrong within the lands of Amaryllis. Weather anomalies and strange phenomena have begun materializing across the territories, infecting the pride lands and sending the valley into a state of flux and confusion. Who is to say how long it will go on for, or what the reason for such chaos is?

June 6th, 2022 The prides continue to remain in a state of flux as Alizabeth challenges Walpurgis for Scilla Lagoon and the consequences of the war start to become clear.

May 15th, 2022 Seneca is challenged by Violarum for the crown, though manages to remain the leader of Andal Oasis. Not long after, another fight rings out across the island as Cassandra challenges Alaric for Ecrosia Mire. This spirals into a violent clash between the Rike and Sigrún, who are long-time enemies, and leads to a death match between Saga and Erna as war breaks out around them.

April 24th, 2022 As the mist cleared, acidic rainstorms moved in over the rainforest and flooded the lands. The lions of the Rainforest were forced to leave but now the cooler temps have moved the storms out and the lands are open for claiming.

April 15th, 2022 With a few more weeks having gone by, the mist has finally relinquished its hold on the lands of Amaryllis, dissappearing back to wherever it had first come from. As a result, all of the lost lions, who had been so cruelly taken by the mist, are now free - but will things ever truly be the same as they once were?

April 4th, 2022 For a few days now, the mist has started to seem as though it is lifting, with some areas thinning out and hinting that the end may be near. And while some lost lions have miraculously turned up as a result of this, others remain entrenched within the mist, their whereabout unknown and their kin still searching for their safe return. In addition, amongst the chaos, Walpurgis has succeeded in obtaining the crown of Scilla Lagoon, beginning what could be a new era for the coastal pride.

March 29th, 2022 Searches for missing lions prove fruitful for some and not for others. Strange animals are arriving from within the mist and meeting lions for the first time. A strong wave of the mist covered the Lagoon and drove out all the members leaving the once-thriving pride lands ghostly empty.

March 15th, 2022 The mist seems to have developed quite the appetite, as the volume of disappearances becomes clear and the fog overtakes the once-territory of the Lightstone outlaw band, forcing its members to disperse. These realizations have prompted search parties to begin scouring the valley in pursuit of their missing kin, hoping to find them and get them home in one piece.

March 1st, 2022 The shift in the air is noticeable and strong, signalling the arrival of something that is coming their way, and fast. What started out as a normal morning quickly transcended into confusion, as rolling clouds of mist begin to overtake Amaryllis, consuming all in its path and causing the disappearance of lions all across the land. What is going on?

February 17th, 2022 The challenges for Firnen Rainforest, Wolfbron Bluffs, and Vermeda Brook all conclude, with two of the three maintaining their previous rulers while the other faces a regime change. How will the inhabitants of the rainforest take to this usurper? And what will become of Saga Sigrun, who has now killed not one, but two members of the Rike family?

February 8th, 2022 Úlla stands as the winner of the Cove but it seems that her victory is the start in a string of chaos. The rainforest, bluffs, and the brook have all been challenged for. If any pay attention, in the early mornings the haze seems to linger a little bit longer, what could this mean?

February 7th, 2022 Roan remains the leader of the Hollows, and Saga succeeds in killing Eulalia. The recent rains also caused a rock slide in the Cove, and the lions living there were forced to flee to keep from being crushed. While the pride stands empty, Úlla and Keir step-up to fight their way to claiming the sandy territory.

January 29th, 2022 In a sudden shifting of the tides, both a pride challenge and a death match have spurred within the grounds of Obsidian Hollow. Roan and Alaric battle for the throne while Saga and Eulalia fight for their lives, bringing the surmounting tensions between the Sigrun and Rike families to an all-time high.

January 23rd, 2022 The politics and dynamics of the land are shifting following the creation of Amaryllis' first three outlaw bands - Lightstone, Galloway Crew, and Niflheim. It is still too soon to tell what the breadth of their impact will be, but it is evident that change is afoot.

JULY Y8
SUMMER
Summer is in full swing now, with clear skies, warm nights, and ample sunshine! As such, the deserts begin to grow dry, the shores remain a blissful escape, the north is spared with cooling winds, and humidity continues to rise in the jungle. Rain and storms are long forgotten troubles by now, which is both a virtue and a vice during the heat of the season.

Reminders and Quick-Fire Updates
  • Free Art and Designs: This is a general reminder that any type of art that is given for free is just that — free. It is not to be used for profit or in any way that wasn't intended by the original artist when it was offered. Please make sure to abide by this when claiming, using, or recycling free art, and to reach out to the artist or a Staff member if you have any questions.
  • We have a new relationship field for IC profiles. This enables you to set different types of relationships with different characters, and can be found in your UserCP! Thank you to @dusk for setting this up!
  • With the introduction of 2 new prides as part of our July BWP, we had to reconfigure some things on site — including the index, usergroups, permissions, and so forth. If anything looks off or wonky in relation to this, please bring it to a Sr.Staff member’s attention so that we can get it fixed as soon as possible! Thank you for your patience, and cheers to new prides!
  • Staff have an open door policy on all things. We understand that OOC issues can cause anxiety and stress, we would like to stress that we are here for you if you feel as though you need support, guidance, or assistance. While we can't promise to fix everything, we will always do our best to remedy the situation and keep flagged issues on our radar.
  • When you do have issues or require Staff assistance, the use of the Discord ticket system is always encouraged, both for tracking and transparency reasons. Soon, we will be setting up the system to auto-send a ticket of the transcript to you after the ticket is closed. The Admin team also retains copies of all ticket transcripts.
  • We are anticipating releasing a community survey in the next little while, to gauge where the member-base is at and where improvements can be made. In the same vein, we want to remind everyone that Amaryllis is, at the end of the day, a game — one that we all are here to enjoy and have fun with. Please always display respect and kindness to your fellow RPers, and to treat everyone how you would want to be treated.


Conclusion of the BWP

As of August 1st, Nature’s Wrath has officially ended and brought with it the close of the BWP. We loved getting to see everyone experiment and play around with the plot-lines, and appreciate everyone’s patience as the BWP Team and Staff experimented with different formats, schedules, and mechanics.

The Admin team is aiming to pull the raffle winners later today - it will be conducted similar to our posting raffles, where each winner will be contacted in the order that they are drawn. However, the Staff team does need to go through and verify everyone’s tickets before conducting the raffle — if there are delays with this, please understand as there are a lot of members that we need to go through! We promise to do this as quickly and as efficiently as we can, so that we can distribute those amazing prizes.

Finally, thank you for everyone who participated and made the BWP their own, and to the BWP Team as a whole for their hard work and dedication! Cheers everyone and we’ll see you again in a couple of months for the next event!

New Trades are Now Live

As of this announcement, our two new trades, Erudite and Beatnik are officially live. You will find all of their perks and trade tasks in the Guidebook, and characters can begin selecting these as their trades and incorporating them ICly.

Given the fact that these are new trades, for the month of August, you are able to negate any trade change cooldowns that your characters may have in favour of changing to either Erudite or Beatnik.

  • i.e. Bob switched their Master trade to Barbarian two weeks ago, and by default was given a 3 OOC month cooldown where they can’t change their Master trade again. However, after seeing the new trades, Bob really wants their Master trade to be Erudite. If requested before September 1, Bob can swap their Master trade again to Erudite and ignore that 3 month cooldown. He will, however, incur a new cooldown after switching to Erudite.

Trade experience cannot be transferred to the new trades from an old one, unless you have a prize that allows you to do so.

We look forward to seeing these in action!

Changes to PVP

In order to provide more flexibility and options to our member-base, we will be adding another level to our PVP system. We hope that this change will allow more comfort during fights and with the PVP system as a whole.

Below are some quick summaries of the tiers, but please see the Guidebook PVP page for a full outline.

  • If switching to Orange or Yellow, it will not count as a PVP change and will not be given a cooldown.
  • If are in the middle of a fight and requesting a PVP change, please make a note (with a link to the fight) in your request so that Staff can wait until it is over to make the edit.

We would also like to take a moment to remind everyone that hiding behind your PVP, at any level, is not allowed. Please have a level that matches the type of character that you have (to the best of your ability), and to keep the spirit of the site in mind.

    Example of hiding behind a PVP: Having a character who is always in the middle of things, tends to get themselves into messes, or is often aggressive toward others. Having a character like this on Red PVP keeps others from being able to do what would be naturally ICly for them. If you feel as though someone is hiding behind their PVP, in any circumstance, please reach out to the Staff team via our ticket tool system in discord.

RED: Cannot be fought without permission. This level will remain as it was previously.
ORANGE: Open minor maims or below. This will also be the new default/minimum PVP level for all pride/band leaders.
YELLOW: Open to major maims or below.
GREEN: Open to any fight, including death matches. This level will remain as it was previously.

Again, we hope that these changes will help cohesion and make everyone a little more comfortable with the PVP system. If you have concerns or questions, do not hesitate to reach out!
