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?

She is hunger.

Tastes of it have left the lioness eager for more, to taste what all men have always desired.


So much of those early days had been dictated by the cruelty of others. Broken down and beaten till that old life no longer existed. Sacrifice Xylia so that Sersie could be born, risen from the ashes of a dead girl, broken and bloodied on the floor. Her time in Amaryllis had done her good, aside from the obvious limb removal; it had given her a taste for what she truly wanted in life. A taste of importance, a taste of infamy, the desire to crush and bulldoze and rip and tear her way through anyone who stood in her way.

That couldn't be more evident than now, standing at the borders of a place she cared so little for. It's ruler relatively unknown, but again she didn't care. This was nothing personal. Transaction among strangers, a test of fate.

A place to birth the children in her womb and raise the hellions to be just as brutal as herself. A failsafe to the inevitable. At least this place had sand.

Awkward gait leads the woman across the border, into the Lagoon, as she bellows a raspy roar. Readied, waiting, and ever so hungry

The familiar stench of the Oasis carries across the beach— a trespasser. Ceasing her patrol, she sharply diverts course, a low growl rumbling in her throat as she starts towards its source. She's unsure what it is about this place that keeps drawing unwelcome visitors like they've got a welcome sign hanging from the door, but part of her is glad of the traffic. Fighting, after all, and breaking things, is the only thing she knows how to do.

Approaching nearer, her eye is caught by the waiting form of a wheat woman. She only stands there, menace incarnate, and that puts a hitch in her step. A cold shiver runs along her spine, but it's not her worn, battered appearance that has inspired such. It's what she knows to be coming. She knows it with a sudden, stone-cold certainty. She halts, ears laid flat along her skull. Seagulls take wing in raucous uproar as the booming challenge reverberates on the paradoxically quiet breeze. "That bitch is coming for my goddamn marulas," she brings out, her eyes lit with murderous fire, fury commingling with shock at the woman's sheer audacity.

Thisbe approaches from behind @Uma, trailing in like moth to the flame. There had been a call over the air, a summons, a demand. Someone was trying to take the Lagoon and Thisbe heeded the unspoken request for audience. She is a medic after all, she will go where she knows that she will be needed. Red walks towards the sound of Sersie's voice, imagining this was driven by a sense of duty. Imagining that, in reality, she should have no real strong feelings over who ran things. It was beneficial to have the strongest rulers no?

As she trails up and spots the two forms already gathered, one and then the other, she is struck with a twist in her heart. It stops her in her tracks about ten feet still behind the gentry. Thisbe is angry. She's uncomfortable with the idea of someone taking over the Lagoon. She's upset that Uma is upset. But more than anything she's uncomfortable with the very fact that she's thinking that way at all. She has consciously been wrestling with thoughts of Uma that plagued her dreams (and maybe that too has stopped Thisbe in her tracks and kept her from properly joining her pridemate). But her attachment to Scilla has snuck up on her, it's not something she's fully realized until this moment that she, looking over Uma's shoulders at the challenger, must face losing it all.

(This post was last modified: 12-01-2023, 10:48 AM by Cassandra. Edited 1 time in total.)
Truth be told, she had been staying away from some of the recent pride challenges. They didn’t really concern her, but when the call rang out for the Lagoon of all places, Cassandra knew she had to attend this challenge at the very least. Support Cirilla in any way she could. Letting out a soft chuff for her son @Asbjørn to join her as she left the Brook, the Vermeda Queen made her way to the Lagoon’s borders to see who was challenging Cirilla for her home.

Flicking her tail, Cassandra realized the main action had not yet begun when she arrived there. She didn’t recognize the tripod lioness who had called out for the Lagoon, but the scent of the Oasis was pungent and she would know it anywhere. A lift of her lip as she stared at the lioness. "Go back to that bastard before he finds out another one of his wives has left his control." She said, her words carrying the hint of a snarl. From what she’d seen, most of the lionesses in the Oasis appeared to be tied to that bastard in some way or another. Surely he’d hate to see one of his wives Out and doing this when she was pregnant.

She didn’t know for sure if the lioness challenging was his wife or not - had just merely made the assumption based off of her own knowledge of the bastard and how he seemed to always have spawn somewhere. There was no way all this cubs came from one lioness. It was impossible given their ages. But she would stand in support of Cirilla - always had done so.

Cassandra is just on the borders, she has not passed them

actions. "speech."

Cirilla had known that this day would come. The call had echoed throughout her home and the rest of Amaryllis, and she knew that many would flock to see such a spectacle. The High Sovereign was thankful, at the very least, that the challenge rang out after she had given birth to her children. They would witness history today, no matter what the outcome would be.

The High Sovereign rose from the idle nap she had been taking in her den. Shaking off the debris that might have been caught in her pelt, the assassin slipped from her husband's sleeping side and took her time to patrol her borders and re-scent the spots of her border that seemed particularly lacking.

The Sigrún did not care that this lion, whoever they might be, had crossed her borders. It showed ambition and determination, and the lioness could not fault that. What she could fault, however, was the audacity to challenge for her crown when the lioness had worked hard to obtain a throne for her husband and her children's safety. That was something that did not sit right with Cirilla's morals, but she knew that challenges were part of having a pride.

Deciding first, before answering the call, Cirilla decided to visit her herb supply. She had visited a variety of different neutral territories and had collected some larkspur and milky mangrove plants, eager to experiment with them on some stray insects or animals that wandered freely through her home. She had, the night before, mixed the two into a pulp, and found it appropriate that now would be a good time to experiment on her opponent. Lathering her claws on her left paw in the paste, Cirilla tucked them away and carefully made her way across the territory to where Sersie stood.

Eyes watched from behind the dense foliage, noting only a few in attendance. @Uma was one, and @Thisbe another, with @Cassandra being the third. She was thankful that it was her allies that had arrived first, and for once she wondered if luck was on her side.

Adjusting her trajectory so that Cirilla stood to Sersie's right, the assassin bolts out of the foliage that had kept her hidden. She does not speak nor attempt to defuse the situation: this was war, and this was how Cirilla was going to play it. Cirilla closes the gap between her and the three-legged lioness, and attempts to lunge toward the wheat lioness. Outstretched claws, laced with larkspur and milky mangrove paste, attempt to slash against Sersie's face (aiming particularly for her eyes), whilst her jaws open and attempt to lunge forward, attempting to find grip against Sersie's right shoulder.

Let the games begin.

still the curled fists gripping the yes of the world, the cadence of tragedy, the yes of night shepherding shadows closer to home. Yes, the moon, the bright unending.

The voice that called was different than any others. It was twisted, machinating. There was a tone lingering beneath that bellow that frightened Aurelia to her core, and it were only the reassuring push and pull of the constant tide that eased her frayed fur, her tensed muscles. It were far too normal a day. The sky was not swollen with storm, the sea did not bend at Vellen's wrath. Their hallowed halls were empty, silent of anything but the challenger's echo. Aurelia pulled herself from her den, anxiety wrought in the upward curve of her brows, the fervent rise and fall of her breast with every hastened breath.

@Uma is present already, with @Thisbe lingering close beside her. She hears the call of @Cassandra from a short distance, remembering their short time within the Brook and under her and Myrkvi's leadership before the former Jarl left from the peninsula. A hard lump formed in her throat near impossible to swallow, remembering well that even being here was a danger, even within the protected borders of the Lagoon. The smell that wafted from @Sersie was one of the Oasis, but it was not Scorpius' Oasis. She was all things Aurelia feared the most—unencumbered, ambitious, cunning. The scars written in her skin told more stories than Aurelia could feasibly conceived, and where she may have felt some semblance of camaraderie when she noticed the mangled stump of what once were a limb, she instead felt only dread.

If Sersie could fight with three limbs then Aurelia could with only two, but within this challenger lived something that Aurelia could never have. And as she watched @Cirilla rush past their growing group and throw herself at the challenger, it took everything within her not to plead her mother back to safety. She could not bear to lose her again.

First one voice. A declaration and intent to take echoed across the land. But faint, one that initially may not have interested Dio one bit. But then another, one much closer. Cassandra calls for her son and the wheels begin to spin for Dio. They're going to the challenge. And the new advisor figures it wise she join them. She's not invited, but in interest of doing her job well she invites herself along just the same.

Dio moves to stand beside her Queen cousin, no verbal or physical greeting provided. Her teal eyes are fixated on the fight as it springs to life before them. A horn of battle sounds and all of a sudden Dio feels whisked back in time. She's been on the receiving end of those claws before and memory begins to surface. They're fueled by the feeling of sand inching it's way between her toes and made vivid by the smell of salt in the air. With each swing of claw Dio remembers. She's quiet, she's still and betrays nothing of what goes on in the veil on her mind... But play it does.

And with it all, the fear returns.

A blur of motion, the sudden separation of foliage to reveal the beast who wore the crown. Cirilla is crafty, coming at her on the side that had so little to brace against. Sersie turns her head sharply in time to see the Lagoon's Queen as nothing more than smudge of greys and brown. The darkened claws of the Sovereign rake across her visage, nearly missing her eye itself. But the Andal knows it's cut a little too close for comfort, as the blood that begins to pour from tethered tendons nearly makes her blind. Hind legs brace against the weight of Cirilla before lunging her forward enough--the teeth of the bitch pierce the lower skin behind the shoulder.

The pain is welcome, it is euphoric. Never does Sersie feel more ethereal, untouchable, alive than in the throws of such a dance.

A gurgled, roar-choked cackle dares to erupt from her throat, a wicked grin mired among the old scars and the new, open wounds. Elation at its finest, written in her bloodied gaze.

Sersie stumbles in her movement, a pivot on her front leg as her hind ones try and maneuver her towards facing the Crown she seeks to usurp. With no left arm to fully use, it's the back ones left to do most of the work. Mustering up energy, she shifts weight suddenly as she tries to lung back into the Lagoon queen, mouth open and teeth bared. Sersie attempts to clamp down on the lower neck of the fucker, lifting her only front paw when she felt it was necessary. Her right arm would swing up and seek to find purchase along the left side Cirilla's neck; raking down, and then curving back up in a swift J-like motion.

An embrace she loves, one she welcomes. It's almost too easy to forget the life her body is creating. A more caring mother would not put her children in such danger, would think before acting. Yet there is one specific rule that the tripod has learned in her life--the weak are not worthy and they do not survive. It is with this mindset that she has thrown herself into such fray, with such little care. Let the brazen, wild, chaotic strength of her pass upon them and make them nothing but iron.

And let her claws be her own making, a will to strike down every enemy she makes.
