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?

September 28th, 2022 Ryker Dantanian once again challenges Seneca Miroslav for the crown of Andal Oasis. Will another war materialize on the sidelines, or will they all be able to observe in peace?

September 21st, 2022 It seems that the work Maua did to calm the lands has worked, as peace settles over the island and allows those living upon it to enjoy themselves. It seems that Tiamat has grown tired of it, however, as she challenges Alizabeth for Scilla Lagoon. Has the time of neutrality ended, or will this challenge come and go without further violence?

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.

Reminders and Quick-Fire Updates
  • A new mutation has been added: double ears! This mutation has been added into our Tier 2 mutations and will cost 50 petals to add to your character's design. This can not be added to characters that have already been accepted.
  • For all ranked characters able to post in the passage: please do not post in threads that was started PRIOR to your character gaining their rank unless the thread is unanswered.
  • We have rolled back our newest skin set to get a few edits ironed out and make sure that it is functioning as it should be and includes what we need it to! They will be re-released at a later time when they are completely fleshed out, and we apologize for the back and forth.
  • Suggestions in discord will be closed for Oct and Nov while Staff works on the guidebook.
  • Usernames in the "Who's Online" and in profiles now have hover text to tell you what user group they are in.
  • We are in need of members to help us with the revamp of the guidebook. This is open to all members, regardless of warnings or strikes. No active member is unable to join if they feel they have valuable input. Please see more here.

Welcome New Staff

Following an open call for applications last month, we are very excited to welcome some fresh faces to the Assistant Staff team!

Please join us in welcoming @Zay ★, @Roamer ★, @CrowValkairi and @Ci ★ to the Assistant Staff Team!

All of our new staff members have begun training, but it still may take them some time to get into the swing of things. We ask that you show patience towards our new Staff members during this time - we promise that it will be well worth it!

Changes to Luck Rolls

All fights judged after this announcement will have a new luck roll system used.

  • Luck dice rolls between 15-20 will count as +1 hit.
    • We currently are leaving this uncapped. We will be making slow changes over the next few updates to see how things work.

Trespassing on Pride Territory

We would like to take a moment to clear up some confusion about trespassing on Pride Territory (posting in a pride's forum).

  • If it is not clearly stated within a thread that a character is or is not trespassing, the character cannot be viewed as trespassing over a pride border unless the character posted is from a listed enemy or at war pride.
    • This means PVP does not rise for simply posting in a pride's forum.
    • If they are from a listed enemy/at war pride, their PVP will rise if posting in the pride's forum, expressed trespassing or not.
  • If it is clearly stated the character is not trespassing in a post the character's PVP does not rise unless the character who is posting is from a listed enemy/at war pride.
  • If your character is in a fight due to trespassing and wins, any ranked character(s) may still start another fight with your character. The trespassing character will follow the fatigue system for their dice.
    • The trespassing character can roll escape dice to try to get away if they wish to avoid being attacked again.
  • By trespassing, you accept that your character may be attacked and waive the normal steps that would normally be taken if an attacking member is on red pvp. If a red pvp member does attack a trespassing character, they accept and waive the normal steps that would be taken as well.

Maua’s Passage and Outlaw Bands

In an effort to balance the outlaw trade and the development of Bands the following will be allowed to post in Maua's Passage:

  • Band leaders
  • Master outlaws in a band regardless of rank in the band
  • Up to two types of ranks to recruit (medium ranks and up)

Freeing up Names for Inactive Accounts

Names may now be freed up from inactive IC accounts!

  • If an account is an OOC account a name may not be reused, as we never know if that player may return to the site at some point.
  • The existing account will not be deleted but instead, an "I" will be added to the end of the account so that all account information is saved in the event the player should return to the site.
  • An inactive account must have been inactive for at least 6 OOC months before the name can be freed up and the member holding the name is no longer active on the site.
    • If the member is onsite, a request can be made directly to them.
  • Should an inactive account meet all the criteria a request may be made in General Maintenance for the name to be freed.

Preplanned Maims and Death Matches

If you have a preplanned death match using the dice, we ask that you send in confirmation prior to it starting. If you have a preplanned maim(using the dice) that would normally require approval due to PVP or the type of maim it is, we ask that you send in confirmation prior to it starting. This is to allow Sr Staff to be aware of what is happening, check to make sure both parties agree, and if required, offer guidance.

Report System

We understand that at times things happen that concern members but not to the point where you feel that you want to open a ticket, it doesn't directly involve them but its making them uncomfortable, or there is something that you want to give a heads up on but opening a ticket may not be the way you want to go. We are offering a google forum that will allow you to report issues, rule-breaking, bullying, etc. This system will require an email but will not require your OOC name unless you want us to reach out. Please understand that if you do not put your OOC name, we will be limited in what we can do depending on what is sent in.

If you wish to use this, please go here. This will be on our strike system page.

Discord Changes

Discord is a great extension of our site and a place for all members to come together and enjoy their downtime. We know that there are many different types of personalities on our site and within Discord which can make things hard at times. Due to some recent events and in an effort to help make sure that all members feel comfortable we will be using a few new moderation tools and putting a few new discord rules in place. We also ask that all members to take a look at the discord rules, as we will be stepping up enforcement of all rules.

New Discord Rules

  • When asked by a staff member to move or stop topics, refusing to or arguing with the staff member will result in a 24-hour discord mute. A second offense will be a 48-hour mute and a third offense will be a week-long discord ban.
  • We are expanding on the "never speak for another player or their characters." While we are understanding that things can get really exciting ICly we want to make sure that members never feel like their characters are being taken out of context. It is ok to ASK about something but the person who plays that character should be the one answering.
  • Not everyone will share the same political views as you, some people are attempting to learn about different topics and may ask questions so unless someone is being overly rude, please be respectful of the differences and tolerant of others.
  • Talk of anything listed on the trigger warning page without proper trigger warnings will result in a 12-hour discord mute, if it happens again a 24-hour mute, and a third time will result in a one-week discord ban.
  • Public arguments that carry on will result in a 24-hour mute.
  • Passive aggressive comments often cause hurt feelings and can lead to a negative environment. Please be mindful of what you are saying and how you are saying it. Ask yourself if this adds to the topic being talked about or not.

New Moderation Tools
  • We have also set up a "warning" function that is Sr Staff controlled. If the Sr Staff team feels that a member has broken discord rules then a warning will be issued. You will receive a DM from the system. Please open a ticket if you wish to talk to Sr Staff about the warning. After 3 warnings, you will be placed on a one-week discord ban.
  • We are also looking into a discord report system.

Ticket Tool Changes

The Ticket Tool is a valuable tool for the discord server as well as the site. The Bot has released a few new features that we will be setting up so that the use of the tool is a little more user-friendly.

The following will be used:

  • Submit a ticket for approvals/confirmation on maims or DMs - Even if a DM or maim is preapproved, please send your confirmation through this manner.
  • Submit a "heads up" ticket - Give Sr Staff a heads up or notice of something but don't want or feel the need to have it be anything more you can use this and then close it right after.
  • Submit a ticket for an OOC issue between members - If you are having an OOC issue with a member, please reach out to us and let us know. Sr Staff can talk with you and together we can come up with a plan.
  • Submit a ticket for an IC issue between members - If you are having an IC issue with a member, please reach out and let us know. Together we can come up with a plan.
  • Meditation - If you would like to have a talk with another member and have staff be there to mediate as needed, open this ticket. Please speak with the other person first.
  • Warning Review - If you received a warning that you would like to have reviewed, please use this ticket.
  • Staff Use - Ticket that is used for staff use

You will also notice a fill-able form will pop up when you open a ticket, please be sure to fill this in to the best of your ability with what you would like Staff to know to best assist with the ticket submitted.

Discord Thread Prompt

Ice is working on a thread prompt bot to be used in discord! If you have some ideas for thread prompts, please send them to her in a DM. Currently, the bot is set up to output a location, a prompt of some sort, and if you want a word count to strive for. The bot is fairly basic but we hope that once it is rolled out that you all will enjoy it and that it will be a useful tool for everyone.


All of the above items will be placed in the guidebook or discord over the next few days.
