February 11, 2024The Mire has fallen from the Stärke family and is now held by Luther Rike. The change has stirred but the fighting nature of those on the island. The Brook finds a new leader with Icefang and Isla takes over the Lagoon after a storm pushes out the old leader. Reti finds himself the leader of the Hollows after Alexander is hurt. The Oasis finds a new leader in Léonie who is soon tested by Harou.

January 8, 2024 The snow has finally begun to melt anew, which means that the world is slowly returning to the much-anticipated summer season. With the various holiday activities and the other jests put on by Nafasi also coming to a close, it is safe to say that winter is finally over.

December 5th, 2023 Nafasi had pulled a cruel trick and has sent Amaryllis back into a renewed winter season! But it's not all bad, because the lands will also see a handful of holiday-themed events popping up as a result. To make things more interesting, a wayward trio of travlers have also arrived and are facilitating a mass competition between the prides, bands, and rogues -- formally dubbed the Amaryllis Winter Games.

December 2nd, 2023 The spring air brings forth a number of pride challenges. A familiar challenger for the Cove and the Oasis arrive to try to earn what they want. The new leader of the Lagoon is tested in battle as well. What changes will come from the challenges? Who will remain standing and who will find their world turned upside down?

November 27th, 2023 In a challenge between mother and daughter, the leadership of Wolfbron Bluff changes for the first time in 5 IC years.

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?

He had lost, but he had yet to fall. His red jewels watched the woman as she paraded through the crowd, claiming that her gods had denied him. No, this was a lesson he saw in this. Her gods were here, true, but it was his that had denied him of his victory. A growl erupting from his jaws as he watched the crowd around him. Battle had ensued. Chaos thrown into the air like a fog. Adeodatus was pleased about it as he felt his feral blood boil.

He stood in the same spot as he had been when Morrigan had left him. Eyes scanning for anyone that would need his help. True he was exhausted but he wouldn't leave those behind that needed him. His jewels landed on Tanaz in her fight, and scanned for Gabrielle but couldn't see her and worry set in. It was then he moved and began to search for his wife. All the while keeping an eye out for any who needed his help.

Adeo is open to another fight.

As the main fight ended, the queen of ice called out to them. Who else wanted to be a king? And Valaine erupted in a frenzied laughter amidst the group. She had been looking to paint the ground with blood today - who knew she'd get the opportunity to paint it with queen's blood?

She pushed her way through the crowd and approached Morrigan with a deadly grin and a bravado that reeked of Rike. "How about ein queen, Sympathisanten-Abschaum?" she growled, but she didn't really wait for the woman to answer her.

Valaine leapt for the female - feeling the adrenaline and purpose running hot in her veins - she threw herself at Morrigan. Bodies would likely clash first, unless Morrigan was that much faster than her, but then... then Valaine would attempt a well-intended bite for the female's throat.

OOC: Open for healing or to be fought - but preferably healing lol

It had taken some time for the colossal to amass the amount of items he would need to care for injuries. He collected most of what would be important for patching up members enough to get them home. His approach told him there was war at the pit. A mass of bloodied bodies from various prides and he could tell @Morrigan ♔ would remain the Queen of the summit. The beast let out a chuff to answer the Greyflood’s to let her know he had arrived. He sought out @Talisa ♔ to secure a spot in order to be open to care for members who came to him for it or defend Tali should the need arise.

He arrived on the tendrils of the erupted chaos. Panting from his hurried pace, his obsidian gaze scanned the flurry of battle to find an open hide. He knew @Cassandra was here somewhere but it was the familiar grey hide of a mire lion that had his attention. He remembered it from the dark. It was evident the Mire was an issue here and it would be the Mire he would be sinking teeth and claws into.

- -

Myrkvi barreled toward @Adeodatus - weaving between fights to attempt to throw himself at the grey lion’s right side. His jaws opened to try to dig into the flesh of the shoulder where his top teeth could try to sink into the space behind the blade. His left forelimb rose to try to gain a grip on Adeo’s back near the middle while the rest of him balanced on the three remaining legs. His ears flattened against his skull and he was ready to taste blood.

you can take my heart, you can take my breath
The male moves to his feet, but he isn't fast enough to stop her. Revna's legs end up wrapped around his neck, her claws digging into his mane and just barely pricking at the skin underneath. But her grip is not necessarily to damage so much as to take hold and give herself leverage. She flexes her claws as much as she can, tensing her front legs in an attempt to press down a little more against his mane and get better access to the skin beneath.

He is fast enough to duck his head as she goes for his face, giving her access to his forehead, which is less than desirable. The flesh there tears as she punctures it, but the bone beneath the skin prevents her from getting a grip or doing any real damage. However, head wounds tended to bleed more than others. She hopes that the blood may run freely and even get in his eyes to hinder his ability to fight.

He actually takes the time to bother speaking to her, but Revna is not foolish enough to give him an answer. She has no breath to waste, and she isn't about to give away her real thoughts on just what the bastard is. For now, enough that he is clearly friends with someone who smells so heavily of swamp - though that male has now run off for his own fight - which makes him friends with the enemy.

Her only answer to his words is a rumbling growl deep in her throat.

He pushes forward into her, his right paw attempting to sweep her left ankle out from underneath her. But his push causes her to slide backward just slightly before she tenses her hind legs to stop the movement, and his claws slash through the skin on her leg instead of knocking the entire limb askew. Still, she feels her balance waver for just a moment. It is her grip on his head and neck that allows her to stay upright for the time being.

While she is still recovering his teeth seek out her flesh and find it where her neck and chest meet. He sinks into the flesh there, gaining a hold on the taunt skin despite his restricted movement from her own grip. Revna does not waver. Instead, her eyes latch onto his left ear and she strains her own head forward, attempting to grab ahold of it with her teeth. Is it the most vital organ to go for? No, but it can certainly cause a significant amount of pain if she does manage to grab it.

One after another, battles began to break out within the crater beneath her. She stared down intently, watching the chaos of all the little lions below her. It was satisfying to watch hell unleash upon the group below her. It had all turned into a bloody war now. Reah couldn’t help but keep her eyes locked on the dark lioness and the gray lion. Their battle just seemed all too significant, and both opponents were bathed in blood.

Morrigan ripped at the lion’s cheek, her wounds also profusely bled. Yet the lioness seemed to reign victorious, leaving the brutish storm-colored lion and talking something about gods. Reah wasn’t really too sure, but she sure as hell wasn’t going to go find out. Even if she wished to, it seemed another lioness had pounced upon Morrigan. Reah’s eyes narrowed and she got up from her feet. She realized that no one was safe, and there truly were no laws here. She caught a glimpse of plum-purple fur, and immediately she stalked forth. She approached @Aeistrios, moving close and bringing her muzzle to his ear so that he could hear her voice clearly. It is not safe here, we should go, she said. She wasn’t afraid, but what was the point in fighting in a war that held no connections to the two?

Her paw hit lower than intended as the confrontational Brooker jerked her head away. Toblerone kept her ears back and her narrowed yellow eyes gleamed with righteous fury, all the more inflamed for being impotent. Bitch didn't want to be slapped but sure wanted to talk game, huh? "Oooh bitch stay still and let me slap me!" in the confusion, the physical fray mostly unknown to her, she fumbled her words but her intent was clear. Her failed paw dropped and its twin lifted, trying to slap the dark brown lioness across the other cheek and better, claws readied out to attempt to gorge. She remembered the claws she had seen digging into her chest just a moment ago and remembered she had to be like that, she had to be knives out and no remorse. (Which she was, usually, only emotionally.)

Faster than she could comprehend, claws slashed along the right side of her neck. Toblerone felt like molasses. Like her size was a burden, stone too thick to move, and her opposition only managing to come in the form of a helpless growl. Her tail quivered under her stomach, hindquarters braced but shaking and defensive. She felt like she didn't want to lose this much blood. Was that blood, the dampness on the side of her neck, or was it sweat? She didn't want to bleed. She wanted to be smart, and beautiful, and never bleed unless she wanted to. That vision of herself was out of reach.

Laveau had followed Gauthier, not too closely though, and she'd split off from him early on, the lioness had found a nice rock to lounge on and watch as chaos unfolded through the entire challenge. Her old pridemates from Ecrosia we're locked in battle, she was glad she's left when she had the chance.

Lilac eyes watched everything as it came to an end, watching as the mountain woman came out on top, but still, fights kept popping up. She wished she were with War at this moment, curled into his chest, away from the stress and life she had been born into. A sigh escaped her as she tried to stay out of the view, just in case a lion decided she was looking like an enemy.

(This post was last modified: 01-16-2023, 02:09 AM by Poltergeist.)
Some drama was going down in the pit and it would seem to call for a small field trip of a couple of lions from Caladan Cove. Following slowly behind those that'd make the trip, Poltergeist thought about what they'd find when they got there. @Laveau was up ahead somewhere - he felt no particular need to escort his wife there. He would probably learn more arriving alone anyhow. What he did know about the situation was that a Mire lion grew a pair and challenged for the Summit... and being who they are, a war broke out between the two prides. Something about warring families? He wasn't quite sure the history, but he was excited to be able to watch it all go down.

The loose group of Caladians broke apart as they arrived - bodies throwing themselves at each other from all angles. Poltergeist stood on the outskirts of the pit, looking up to find his way to higher ground so he could watch and not join. Finding a black foot speckled with weird shapes of white, Poltergeist spied his wife and sought to join her. Without haste, he ducked from the central group and began climbing the rocky outcroppings around them until he sat beside her, panting a little from the exertion.

"How long have you been here?" he asked her, though he did not look at her. His eyes were scanning the fights below -- the Summit queen, decorated in her own blood, was engaged in another fight already as was another bloody male. He assumed that was the guy that challenged her, but he couldn't know for sure. "What have you observed?" he asked again, still not turning to look at her.

He found Gauthier among the chaos, talking to another red-furred lioness. He couldn't hear what they spoke about in all the raging noise, but he noted that their body language was relaxed - mostly. The female looked a bit... stressed. Multicolored eyes scanned the surrounding rocks once more... hoping to find @Recluse amongst them. He hadn't said he was going, but a sibling might be hopeful.

Poltergeist is host to a virus called the Black Fever, which is commonly passed through a bite. The virus attacks the nervous system causing an array of various symptoms (see profile for list!) The severity of the symptoms depends on the victim's immune system as well as the severity of their bite wound(s). Players can choose the severity of the symptoms or whether their character is infected at all! It's there for a little fun >:)

Hosts will have a subtle scent of sweet citrus and floral notes, akin to oleander, that instinctively warns others of a potential health threat.

Though she hadn't seen her husband arrive, she assumed he would at some point, her foot dangled over the edge, and she concluded that was what gave her away to her husband. She didn't even give him a glance as he sat beside her, though she could hear his panting from a mile away, the lioness smirked, "Getting out of shape and lazy are we?" She teased him, eyes still roaming the battles below.

"I arrived a little bit after Gauthier arrived, maybe midway through the battle. Morrigan won. That, " She pointed to Adeodatus, an old pride Nate she had never gotten the chance to me, "was her opponent, Adeodatus." She stated, finally looked over to him, before then deciding to help give him information, "the maroon lioness fighting that large male, is Astarte, Gauthier's sister. We were pridemates when I was in Ecrosia."

"The summit leader, Morrigan stated before entering battle, if she fell, her lions would rage war, and the Mire, they took that personally."
