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.

  Quote   |   #1

This was life now. An escaped mutt, running with his collar still attached, but no hand to hold the leash. One paw after another was the most he could focus on. The barren expanse of the passage was unyielding even as winter slowly slipped away into the early days of spring. The bitterness was even worse at night, but the mongrel desired the least amount of attention as he came upon the muddling of scents in the area. There was no denying the vast population of felines that must live beyond this sandbar. What sort of place was he about to stumble into?

Nostrils flared as the dog stalked through the night. Dirty paws carried a steady pace; slightly slow, but each movement made with purpose. He remained on high alert to his surroundings. Folded ears pricked just enough to be useful without being seen beneath the crown of russet. It was instinctive by now, not to show them. Not to add fuel to the fire of outward opinions. Just get inside to these lands that seemed to call to the wayward soldier. Find a new home. Serve a new purpose. Or maybe he'd just fall into the same old routine. The future was written in sand, not stone.

  Quote   |   #2
The stars above were a brilliant view. Those blue eyes of his could not help but admire their brightness as they shined above, seeming to shoot past him as he traversed casually toward the passage. The clouds threatened to hide many of the constellations, but Alexander knew how to spot them, even behind the blankets that threatened to obscure them.

The sound of approaching footsteps caused the Savante beast to turn his attention from the heavens to the creature arriving nearby, seeming intent on a destination. Or perhaps he was lost? Ears perk up a bit, his massive form lumbering closer to close the distance between them as he arrived fully on the scene. "Good evening, I am Alexander. What have you come to these lands for?" A rather direct question, but the beast had never been one to beat around the bush. Gaze settles and focuses on @Dog now, taking in his form fully.

  Quote   |   #3

So much for not gaining any attention. Before the dog could do anything to avoid the elaborately colored lion, @Alexander was already questioning his intentions. The mongrel came to a slow halt, his dual-colored gaze taking in the large sight of the stranger. And he thought he was a big lion? This guy took first place, but size was not everything. Only after this studious once over would the mutt consider the red man's words. What did he come here for? What kind of a question was that? A brow rows, already feeling irritated by the question. "What does anyone come to these lands for?" There is a certain disgruntled edge to his question, spoken through a gruff and gravely voice. Was there a point to this question? Was this the normal customs of entering whatever fantasy land must lay ahead?

  Quote   |   #4
He could tell almost immediately that he had irritated the male. It spoke volumes to Alexander and what he might expect from this lion. A tilt of his head is made, considering the words of @Dog. "I'm still trying to determine that myself, but it is never a bad question to ask a stranger." He muses in a low, neutral tone. Pale blue eyes narrow on the male, continuing to study and assess the beast.

"Do you have a name perhaps, or are you keen on being a mysterious stranger?" There is a teasing tone to his voice, the throaty baritone wrapping around every syllable. Toes curl into the earth, talons slicing through the cracked crevices of the passage. He wondered if Ryker might appreciate this male, but more importantly - he wondered if perhaps he could. Ears flick forward, curious about what might leave those dark lips next.

  Quote   |   #5

Fidgeting mildly while standing in place, the dog rolled his shoulders idly as the stranger spoke. Though he held an opinion of his own whether this particular was actually beneficial to ask a stranger, @Alexander did not prose the words in another query. The neutral coating to the red lion's thoughts beckoned no further response from the rogue as the mutt simply stood silently. His expression did all the talking for him. Analytical gaze continued to size up the stranger, baffled and yet intrigued by the noble's outrageous coloring. None were so brightly painted where the hound came from, after all.

Ah, but another request would be made for information, this time for the beast's name. Had it not been for the teasing tone of his opponent, the plum rogue might have had a sharper tongue, but somehow the jest flustered the beast, even if just for a fraction of a second. This man was strange, more frivolous with his words and his mannerisms than the dog was accustomed to. Such a quick opinion to be made in such a short amount of time, but perhaps that was just how different his world had been up until now. Raising his crown from his previously skulking posture, the mongrel's jaw set firmly as if to carefully choose his next words. "Depends. Is a name required to pass?" The dog could not help the slight wrinkling of his snout as he spoke. It was not a threat, though. He could easily make up any number of names if only to appease the stranger, but first he'd like to know what was truly required of him. Surely this lion wasn't the sole protector of the lands?

GOD KILLS INDISCRIMINATELY AND SO SHALL WE
In the night there were many shadows and much darkness to hide bad deeds. And the surfside sand might wash away footprints. He hungered for drama so much more than food, even if his conscious thoughts kept slipping to the image of unattended cubs. He smelled an adult male wandering through, as well as an Oasis scent diverting to meet it. Nostrils twitched. This would normally be low priority, compared to children or females or any recruiter that looked piebald or smelled salty, but it was true that the night was scarce. And he did not wish the solitude of his own company when he could impose his presence upon others.

He glanced over the scene as he approached. One dark, large male @Dog, holding himself firm and reserved. A much larger male @Alexander from the Oasis, with a conversant and jesting tone. Oasis was an ally. Vermier liked allies. Liked comraderie with them, liked supporting them, liked finding troublemakers with them and eating them to a pulp. He grinned and sidled up alongside with an amiable chuff to the Oasis male. He didn't know either of them but he didn't need to. "Give name!" he ordered when he looked back at the rogue, his tone snappish and impatient. Not yet loud or threatening, but it certainly could be.

He hoped so. Just give him a reason. The Bluffs had given him so few, but now he was king and could make up his own.

Hubert has always enjoyed prowling about at night the most, when the air was cool and the shadows plentiful enough to completely envelope his ebony form, plum-toned markings sheening a soft silver beneath the moonlight. The grand adventures of his explorations and exploits a veiled secret known only to himself and the stars. ...And sometimes his vater or one of his various siblings, when they thought to tail him. But never mind that!

Tonight, his curious wanderings have brought the young Starke to a place he has never properly set foot in, though he certainly knows of it. As a prince, how could he not? He knows too, the reasons why Vater and so many other pride lions visit the passage, though he doubts that there would be much of anything (anyone) to find at this hour. But the sound of masculine voices drifting on the breeze proves him wrong.

He approaches on light pawsteps, ears perked forward with interest as the words grew more distinct, verdant eyes blinking at the trio of males standing beneath the cold starlight. All considerably older and larger than him, though Hubert fights against letting that give him more than a moment's pause. Ecrosia should have a bid on all newcomers, should they not? And since he's the only Starke here, he might as well slide in. If you don't share a name, I suppose we'd have to make one up for you. Unless @Dog wanted to be subjected to an eternity of 'Hey, you's.' And if nicknaming was to be left in Hubert's paws...well, he rather thinks that 'Scruffy' would be fitting enough name for the dark, scarred man with the stony face. He looked a bit worn around the edges, after all.

Want to trade? He suggests with a crooked smile, the picture of a friendly youngster who certainly didn't want something from the stranger, oh no not at all. No more suspicious than the brightly colored @Alexander or the more aggressive @Vermier ♔, at least. My name's Hubert Starke, prince of Ecrosia Mire. Impressive title, no? He contemplates the rogue's scarred pelt for another beat, smile widening. Ecrosia is very welcoming to lions like you, you know. You should come back with me. He adds, bluntly. He imagines Vater would be pleased to have another capable warrior (he assumes) in their ranks.
  Quote   |   #8
Alexander was about to respond to the mysterious beast when another scent caught his ( hims did a heccin sniff snoff ) attention. It was a deeply earthen scent that immediately caught his attention. Head snapped toward @Vermier ♔, blue eyes narrowing as he studied every inch of him - memorizing that smell and anything else that came from his mouth.

Unfortunately, the beast did not speak much of anything about himself or where he came from. Ears flicks as he speaks, the rough order spilling from his mouth holding a foreign hint to it.

A young boy, @Hubert arrives next, a single brow arching inquisitively as he spoke of giving the unnamed male a name. How interesting that would be, perhaps @Dog would prefer it. The yearling held that familiar stench that he was coming to know well and he knew, before he spoke it, that he was from the Mire.

Ears press back, listening to his sales pitch. What exactly did he mean by lions like him? Had the youngster been able to access the beast by merely looking at him? Who knew what laid beneath that rough exterior - that aloof personality.

Slowly does his head turn back to the rogue, his pale gaze offering him a look of curiosity. "What generous offers and...commands." He muses lowly, a smirk curving dark lips. Shoulders roll back as he sighs and settles down to sit, realizing this might take a moment and he was in no rush to tire out his legs.

The tip of his tail flicks lightly, idly wondering what or if he should say anymore for now. Surely the beast would appreciate a moment to digest the multitude of options he had - even though Alexander himself hadn't outright offered anything - yet.

ooc: major apologies for the delay! life happened...

The approach of another drew the dog's gaze away from the brightly colored Oasis lion for a mere moment. Dual-toned eyes were the only thing to move, tracing @Vermier ♔'s dark appearance in the shadows of the night before he came up alongside @Alexander. Not as large as the piebald fellow, and with a different scent about him. The hound was old enough to realize that these might be pride scents from the lands that lay beyond the sandbar. Banners to bolster themselves beneath. Perhaps, though, there was a much simpler explanation, that of simply smelling like one's home wherever that may be. The Fröhlich male held nothing in particular himself, having traveled for so long lately. He was just a muddled mess of dirt and dust.

Give name, the newcomer barked, lacking any and all frivolous tones that the previous man had offered. Had the mongrel not already been agitated by this blockade in the first place, he might have held his temper. Luckily for Vermier, though, the dog had already been baited. Without a second thought, the plum lion sprang forward with a snarl, seeking to close up whatever meager distance lay between them. Jaws parted as the dog's head tilted to his own left, attempting to bite at the right side of his opponent's neck. Meanwhile, the rogue's right front paw would lift with claws exposed, seeking to thrash it down upon anything along the Dieudonne's left side. Specific targets were not important in the hound's mind. He need only show that he was not someone to be barked at. For that matter, though, anyone else was given no further attention, not even caring if he might bump into Alexander in the process of all this mess. Nor did the beast pay any mind to the youngster, @Hubert.

+5 Learn information about a potential threat

Typically rogues were not dangerous unless claimed, and he only claimed females. The stronger and more cunning sex anyway. Vermier was alert and raring for a fight, but he was alert toward the wrong target - first the Oasis male, who did not take him up on his implied offer to tagteam bully the rogue, and then a yearling from the Mire. Amara's allies. That one had a carefree pattern of speech that Vermier took to be a product of youth rather than true, destined arrogance. True and fine and pure arrogance was well aged and well scarred and... would not be unsettled simply because it had been taken unaware.

Vermier's gaze whipped back, eyes narrowing upon the instinctual lunge of the Dog. This one had little artifice and much instinct. Perhaps a predictable trigger. The rogue's attacks were not tricksy, but they were intense. Vermier's frame lowered as jaws neared the right side of his neck and stinky rogue fangs buried within the upper portion of his mane, near the bony jaunt of his shoulder blades. Not a deep or firm grip, missing the furrowed surfaces of his scruff, but it was a hold and blood ran to stain the russet mane from punctures of pain. His own skull, lowered and suddenly slavering, attempted to hook fangs into the upper right portion of the chest. Claws from Dog's working right arm slipped down Vermier's ribs on his left side, following the inlets of bone and leaving little streams of red.
