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!

If Arkyn was one thing, it was being persistent. He never took losses personally, always seeing them as a lesson and stepping stone in helping to better himself and sharpen his skills. He took those losses and mulled them over in his mind, replaying the battles and remembering things he should and shouldn't do the next time around. He knew in the end that fate would ultimately win, but would it be in his favor today would be the biggest question.

He moves closer to the ocean pride's borders, nose sniffing the air and catching not a feminine scent overpowering the rest but a masculine one, causing for a brow to raise. Did another take over Caladan in between his loss and now? Or did the woman he had fought have a significant other that took her place? As curious as he was, the Viking would quiet his mind and calm his nerves; it didn't matter which one he fought in the end, as long as he was the hopeful victor today. Yellow eyes peer into pride territory before he pushes past the invisible boundary, releasing several deep chested and loud roars to call out to whoever it was he had to fight today.

And if he lost here today, he would continue to come back until his birthland was under his control.

there was always this stickiness that clung to the air of shore prides. mixed in with the salt made it worse; her nose twitched and itched constantly but she couldn't sneeze. faustine felt annoyed, but she trudged onwards until her paws touched the sands below. she noticed the male lion and the incoming lions, but none of whom she was familiar with. faustine took to the rocks that laid strewn across the pride and began to slide her claws down them, eager with anticipation for a good long fight. it would not be a bad idea if others broke out due to the challenger's presence; perhaps a war would suffice too.

olympia had her bag overstuffed with premade salves bundled into evergreen leaves and cushioned between palm leaves. she was warned about the potential feud that could happen in the midst of a pride challenge and was she glad she wouldn't be swept up in it. to play it safe, olympia sat farther behind the border, in a position where she could still see the challenge. to her surprise, not a lot of lions had come. all she saw was a green swamp teen who looked like she was ready to eat both challengers and some other nameless, forgettable lions. being among a crowd wasn't her favorite, but olympia would rather use her skills for good than keep them to herself. o' spirits of the land, please guide these lions to the end; allow their claws to be sharp and their minds clear. it was certainly more tactful and official sounding, but the truth was that she made the blessing up as she went.

His children were hardly weaned by the time @Arkyn returned for the pride. Kvare wasn't sure what to think of it; Sunder had given him enough of an ass-whooping that he'd half-expected the boy to crawl off to attempt after another pride. But, like most men, there was some level of persistence. Kvare had kept his promise and had produced heirs who'd just as much claim to the throne as this man, and he would fight fiercely to defend it. He was thankful, perhaps, that it were not Sunder who had to face him this time. Ragged and raw from all the hunting and sparring he'd done in the last few weeks, the Caladan King felt as achingly ready as he didn't. But he'd little choice in the whole affair. There would always come a day when he would have to fight for what was his.

He gave not the chance to speak, to sit around and bicker with their words. Arkyn were here for a fight, and Kvare would eagerly oblige. Thus, his approach was wordless; the challenger's intentions were clear, and there was no need to waver from his path. He aimed to approach the man head-on, emerging from the bushes at the last moment but not attempting to directly hide or ambush him. If he were able to clench the distance between he and his opponent, he would lift his right paw, and attempt to swipe it toward Arkyn's head; his claws were fully extended, aiming to start his swipe just beneath Arkyn's left ear.

She had known that this day would come. Arkyn had mentioned that he would be back when she defeated him the first time, and always his voice had been nagging in the back of her mind. Had kept her on edge until he would fulfill that promise. It would have been naive of her to expect that he would stay away, and this time he would not be met by her own claws but by her husband's. Sunder makes her way towards the borders again, her eyes immediately landing on the hulking frame of the not-stranger. He looked the same as the last time, with the few addition of light scars that she'd given him. Her's had faded as well but they were still there, the most prominent being on her right cheek. Sunder would move to sit only a few paces back from @Kvare and Arkyn, her eyes glued to her husband. The cubs were tucked in safe in the den, but she wouldn't leave them for long. She had faith Kvare would protect them, but if some godforsaken reason they lost today she'd scoop them all up and leave for the Summit, immediately. There was no room for emotions, not yet at least. Sunder would raise her muzzle, sending out a few chuffs to the others in the pride; @Skjol, @Lagertha, @Typhoon and @Sabran. Her swords, she knew they would come and would wait eagerly. Keeping a steady eye on the borders she flickers between the fight and the pridelands, surveying it all stoically for the time being.

He no longer knew the politics of the land. Although he doubted much had changed in the past few months, he was never one to turn down the opportunity to learn a thing or two about the current political landscape. For what felt like the first time in a very, very long time, Nero attended a challenge without worry that he would be attacked -- or worse yet, that any of his kin would be. The rogue albino rested just outside the borders and listened to the commotion, intrigued but unwilling to trespass.

Unless he started seeing a bunch of others do it, in which case he would absolutely fucking trespass. Yessir.

She'd been waiting, oh yes she had. Ever since that day the last challenger had been defeated. He'd said he would return and so he did. The warrior queen stretched, moving from her casual walk along the border into a trot, then to a run. Was she eager to see him fall again? Perhaps. Though more than anything, she was itching for a fight herself.

By the time she was being called, she was already almost upon them. Closing in, she slowed again to a trot, fur raising on the back of her neck, down her back. With a vicious snarl she stalked the border, fangs bard at anyone who dared to step too close. Cold emerald gaze landed on @Faustine first. She remembered the girl, but this was not the passage and so the girl was met with a greeting of bared fangs. A warning to stay away. As her gaze wandered she took note of @Olympia and @Nero beyond the borders and for the time being she seemed satisfied that they appeared to respect the borders. But eyes narrowed in a cold glare. They were safe, for now. But it wasn't hard to guess that the pale, scarred lioness wouldn't hold anything back should they decide to cross.

Eventually she came to a halt next to @Sunder ♔ and brushed her nose against her cheek in a small gesture of affection. While her friend was sitting, she stood at her side. Her guardian, her shieldmaiden to command.

How anyone could enjoy the sand, she'd never understand. She'd been sitting on a stone, sulking and thinking about how one would get sand out of fur. So itchy on her skin, especially with the salt lingering on the breeze. But then her ears perked up, still such an odd feeling. A call. A challenge?

Intrigued, the dark lioness slipped off her perch and towards the water, letting it soak into her fur as she moved along the shore before finding the forest border where she rolled in the dirt and leaves until she was satisfied with how the dirt covered her. Disgusting. But it had to be done. The scent along the border was easily found. It smelled very strongly of a male and other lions, really hard to miss. A smirk tugged on her lips as she brushed against the scent posts until she was more than content with how the scent was clinging to her. Surely no one would be able to tell that she didn't truly belong.

Only once she was satisfied did she moved towards the commotion. Not many lions seemed to be present for the time being, but that suited her just fine. Perhaps their attention would remain on the fight and she'd go largely unnoticed. Dancing along the border in graceful steps, she let her dark eyes wander, studying the lions that were present. Though eventually she settled on a stone that seemed to be partially inside the border, but with most of it on the neutral side. With a small huff she sat down, her tail flicking behind her as she let her gaze linger on the two fighters.

As he waits his body slips into its defenses. His muscles tense and his neck lowers slightly to align with his spine, shoulders rolling up and forward and claws unsheathing themselves and sinking into the packed sand below. He stayed alert, eyes shifting while a couple lions appeared. Ears twist forward before falling back upon his skull as he caught sight of his opponent, watching as he came from behind bushes and charge the Viking head on. He would brace himself, fully awaiting the impact, eyes narrowing on his target.

As Kvare raises his right forepaw Arkyn attempts to take a step toward him, wanting to try to close any sort of distance between them. His left shoulder leads with this movement, attempting to shove it squarely into the man's chest right as he feels claws dig into the skin below his left ear, dragging down the side of his face. The sting of open wounds brings a snarled hiss from the beast, blood beginning to drip down and to the sandy ground. His jaws attempt to snap in the direction of Kvare's right limb then, attempting to gain a grasp of the lion by the the wrist, to bite down with as much force as he could place behind it.

The girl was steadily exploring around the fields when she had heard the call for a challenge. Thankfully, it wasn't the pride that she and her her twin had just joined and that was enough relief for her. So she began to mosey her way towards the Cove -- taking note of the sunshine that was beaming down but thankfully, they were entering into winter so it was as though the sun wasn't shining at all. It was just bright as hell but in the very least, she could rest assured knowing that she wasn't going towards the coast just to find rain and storms.

Moving closer to the Cove, of course, she knew better than to traipse in. There weren't enough lions present currently to go unnoticed in the majority. It was better that she stay outside the borders, but she could at the very least get an idea right? So Daneri began to trail the borders of the Cove and moved as it did, taking in the scent of the leaders that lived within including the one that she could scarcely see down near the main stage. Just beyond them an open sea that beckoned her like a sea siren's call. It's waves looked magical as they crashed along some rocks surrounded by the water and slowly lapped at the shores.

Daneri shook her head; focus. Clearing her throat quietly she continued her wanderings of the borders. Learning her limits and getting more acquainted with the leaders without actually having to be social and mingle.
