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 rains fall heavy across the lands of Amaryllis, but dark and looming clouds often help alert the inhabitants of the coming storms. Thankfully, however, signs of life are beginning to return as the trees start to bud and the flowers begin their slow, but determined, growth. Soon, things will be warming up - but until then, everyone will need to bide their time.

Their words fall on deaf ears, for Aeistrios was hardly a reasonable man and so Violarum knows he owes him no time of day. This is the man who uprooted his home and touched his family after all. Though no simmering wrath bubbles the way that it should, because he knows the plum beast is weak, and his chances thin, and the clay King is quite convinced he was not worth the effort.

Though where the lion pushes against him, sending Violarum's forearm at an uncomfortable angle against his shoulder - causing a wince - a brewing snarl overflows into an attempted bite to the disgusting cavern of his empty eye-socket. For this was no gentle debate, and he had every intention of following through.

He feels his sister's weight lifted, granting a small window for him to gain his feet. He doesn't fault her for her rage. For him to reappear so suddenly, and with the plum-colored bastard in tow? He'd be more than a little upset, too. The man, or demon, as Kian has often thought of him, speaks, occasioning a wild-eyed, unsettled look from the boy. "Put a lid on it, will you?"

His joining into the fray nags at him, more than he can afford to show on the exterior. What's his relation to Bordeaux? And does she willingly abide a monster such as him? But his attention is torn away from the male, back to his sister. "She's a Crow. One of the band." Does it even matter? No sooner has his gaze settled on her, than does something cold and wet hit him in the face, darkening his vision. He grunts, giving his head a shake in an effort to dispel the muck. It's mud, he knows, a weapon he himself employed against her when they sparred as children.

"Daddy didn't attack her. He can challenge for who he wants; he's a king."

"Not this kind of king." The clash between his father and Aeistrios is too familiar, too wince-worthy to watch, but his face is grim with resolve. "Anni... go through with this, and we won't be any better than him."

All the same, there is something imploring in his eyes. You know that, right? His vision still half-obscured, he lunges forward, blindly attempting to drive his head into her chest. Perhaps the impact will jar her, open her eyes to the reality of what she's trying to do.

Viggo braces himself as the two go down, flailing in the sludge. There's no way to soften the impact, and so he lands squarely on his shoulder, viciously entangled with the ebony prince like a pair of quarreling house cats. The impact rattles him and steals his breath a second time as he peels his lips back at his opponent, a breathless hiss escaping him.

He'd be lying if he said his heart is still in the fight after watching their contractor leaving them at the mercy of the mud-dwellers. How he wishes he was tearing into Luther's white hide instead—spineless asshole would probably put up less of a fight, too. The ebony man's grip slackens after his kick lands, but Hubert doesn't let the action go unpunished. Hind legs rake maliciously across his sensitive underbelly, claws lacerating the skin.

Copious amounts of blood begins to flood from the wounds, and the arrant pain that explodes across his stomach has his head swimming. He's unceremoniously shoved away, but not before trying to close his jaws around an extended arm, trying to wrench his head to the side in a bid to impede movement there, or if he's lucky, dislocate the shoulder.

There was so much going on - so many bodies moving and fighting - and he almost hated that he was caught in the crossfire of it all. Why did they want his sister - why did all of this even have to be going on? It made little sense to him, but alas the chaos of the Saxe seemed to have that pattern with the pink child.

He found that he had managed to bite into the forelimb he sought out, something he almost felt bad for, and suddenly a headbutt knocked him backwards and into the ground with a loud hmpf. He feels pain throb along his frame, blinking at the intensity of it before his head shakes out. Reistrios is stunned and as more pain fills his body, he attempts one last time to charge forward and shove the woman (Hekate) away from his siblings.

The call rang out across the Mire, and for once, Adalrik wasn't sure what to do. His ears pin back against his mane as he stands there, frozen, in the middle of his den. The boy had heard tales of his older half-brother and the man he had become, how he had gone against everything his father stood for. How he had disappeared and become a traitor - how he was not welcome in the Mire any more. When Adalrik heard the call echo through his home, his blood ran cold and his tail twitched in mild annoyance. Was it finally time to meet his ever-so special big brother?

Admittedly, the yearling Prince had tried his best to avoid the challenge altogether. Would it not be better, should Bruno fall, that he and his siblings run, rather than face the consequences? Perhaps that was the coward in him speaking, the inability to face the music and instead remain safe from harm. But that wasn't manly, was it? No. Father would not be pleased. With an internal battle of hesitation, Adalrik makes his way to the war cry that echoed throughout his home with a sickening howl.

He arrives to what he can only describe as a shit show. Fights were erupting all around him, with Mire lions pitted against Mire lions, and others fighting clear allies. For a moment, the yearling Prince feels nothing but an overwhelming sense of confusion, but he desperately seeks to find a familiar face in the crowd. Where were his sisters?

Eyes scan the crowd desperately, and eventually fall not on the figure of his sisters, but the pearly-white figure of @Emory. Adalrik might not have been the brightest of his litter, but it didn't take a genius to work out that this boy was a son of Luther. Adalrik's thoughts were reinforced by the desperate plea for another yearling to leave.

Adalrik does not say a word - why should he? Moving with purpose and outstretched claws across the bloodied clearing, Adalrik makes a beeline for the white boy, who seemed too desperate to leave. With bared fangs and a new-found purpose, Adalrik attempts to come up behind Emory, and with outstretched paws, claws and ambition, he attempts to jump onto Emory's back in a bid to find purchase.

Recluse was tired of this, lacking in motivation when it came to fighting Aeistrios's carelessly chosen battles. He wished to align with a lion that yet had nothing, offering only more animosity should things fail. Better just to fight in defense of himself in this moment, even if he had little opinion of his opponent.

Fangs would seek out the side of his neck, the small plum male immediately withdrawing before she might potentially obtain a strong grip there. Fangs would leave cuts there, aided by how quickly he broke away. He would nearly topple in the mud with the motion, managing to rebalance himself in time. He would charge again, this time lowering his head protectively and attempting to slam into her chest like a battering ram. Hopefully his lower center of gravity would benefit him in this.

Recluse is host to a disease inflicted through a bite. Effects include; headache, fever, confusion, hallucinations, aggression, amnesia, blindness, or death. Effects of the bite appear the next day and grow progressively worse. Hosts have a subtle scent of sweet citrus and floral notes akin to oleander, which instinctively warns others of a potential health threat. Effects of the bite are entirely up to the roleplayer of the bitten character.

She must be sorely regretting not listening to him now. He wished he could see it on her face. But her face was occupied with the greater threat. He growled. This whole situation was frustrating. Little did he know that his king and royals were also entangled in a web of half-willingness and old enemies on wrong sides. "Jus' hold ssstill!" he tried to plead around a mouthful of scruff. He didn't want to bite her, but realized he had to when she tried to snap at the Mire lion's throat. He didn't want any of them dying. So he aimed to use his existing grip to try to yank her downward and also attempted to weigh his right paw over the small of her back. Minus that paw, her shift in weight slammed into his planted left forearm and he stumbled back, the thin flesh bruised and tingling radiating all along the bone.

A hiss of pain left him when her fangs succeeded in piercing the flesh around his wrist. Blood trickling down his arm from the wounds being made, nice little puncture wounds he would have to deal with later. Meanwhile he adjusted to try and push forward to resume chewing at her ear, he had enjoyed the taste of it thus far. As Livyatan mvoed he felt her move too, and had he not moved the inch he did, she would be holding that vital spot. Instead she hit just below it, where the mane did its job of protecting him. He felt his tail lash in anger while her teeth gripped his hairs roughly pulling on them. Even more so if Aurochs pulled her back roughly from him.

Livyatan slapped his paw back to the ground so he could make a quick adjustment of his hips lowering them for aided balance. Then he lifted BOTH front paws over the top of her head with claws out attempting to hook them on either side, and pull down. A demented hug if you would.

Meanwhile his jaws were still attempting to chew on the ear he had obtained, enjoying the taste of it. His eyes narrowed, he hopwd the other man succeeded in reeling her into the earth below. Sides heaved with effort, panting slightly. Hontestly Livyatan wanted to seize a hold of her scruff and drag her ass out. But Bruno wanted her here... for what, he did not know, but a loyal dog did not ask for reasons from their masters.

The little weasel's teeth dug into her paw, as the other female's shoved away and at the same time managed to slash into Odette's shoulder. She aims to jerk free from them to thrust, towards the older one, while batting at the younger. "You don't leave, Prisoner." She hisses, at the older female @Siofera because Ciara and Odette are not bested, they cannot be beaten- the sisters had won this, somehow. "Go sit down before I keep another of your siblings here too." She snarls, as she aims to pull away from them to move away, and to move to shove the younger male away from @Ciara, if she is able.

Odette's attention veers from them, as she surveys what's going on around her- noting that @Bruno ♔ is another fight, and the challenger... where was he? She stares through the night, unsure and unable to truly see- as she scours for another to challenge.

OOC: "Tried to be super vague here, on how that all went, but wanted to go ahead and post so we can all post and move on, haha <3"
