October 1st, 2022 Something takes hold of those living on the island. A shared vision or dream that seems to shake the core of what they have come to know. A voice within their minds. Those who came here long ago, guided by Maua's voice will remember what it is like but this voice is different and chilling. What will happen to the island?

September 28th, 2022 Ryker Dantanian once again challenges Seneca Miroslav for Andal Oasis. Will another war pop up or have things settled enough that wars don't break out as often?

September 21st, 2022 It seems that the work Maua did to calm the lands worked. A peace seems to have settled over the island and allowed those living upon it to enjoy themselves. It seems that Tiamat has grown tired of it as she challenges Alizabeth for the Lagoon. Has the time of peace ended or will this challenge come and go without a war breaking out?

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.

FALL
Crunchy leaves, rain, and cool nights are on the rise as Amaryllis descends into the fall season. The cold is beginning to creep in from the nothern territories, whistling through the trees and mountains along the way, but, in time, will encapsulate the entire peninsula.

Illyria Summit

(This post was last modified: 10-01-2022, 11:28 AM by Nova. Edited 53 times in total.)






The winds howl wildly through the mountains of Ilere's Freeze, the air crisp and tight as it hangs heavy with an unrelenting sense of frigidity. However, despite the bitter temperatures and the unforgiving nature of the landscape, Illyria Summit stands strong amongst the snow-coated peaks, its territory sitting high above the valley, well-protected by the jagged rockfaces that surround it. It is not a place for the faint of heart, with winding, precarious trails and the never-ending presence of winter - and yet, somehow, they endure.




News


September 29th — Just a couple of days left to get your exits in for double exp! Next round of the meeting ends October 1st so if you want a rank the easy way, get in there now! Elsewhere, two of Illyria's prospective allies have been challenged for, the Lagoon and the Oasis.

September 23rd — Still waiting on folks to post to the second round of the pride meeting; all ranks encouraged to be asked for or challenged for. Talisa & Morrigan encourage either! Make sure to get in on the pride hunts that have yet to be rolled and don't forget to exit your double experience threads before the end of September! One week left!

September 17th — The second round of the pride meeting is up, with Desdemona taking up the rank of Lead Hunter so far with other ranks up for grabs. Our mighty huntress is also holding a second pride hunt so go join her for that sweet exp and pride tier!

September 11th — Remember to post in the meeting if you haven't yet! The first round ends on 9/14. Morrigan has taken Arsynia's body to the Mire to be buried, but Alaric doesn't know that so we'll see how this goes. Congrats on another successful monthly hunt as well!

September 5th — A mandatory pride meeting has been called by Morrigan and Talisa to let the pride know what has happened lately, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and see if there is any interest in the sadly opened Heir position or any of the other unfilled ranks.

September 2nd — For every life there must be death, it would seem. The Summit has lost both Farrow and Avaneira to the wroth of Mother Nature, as well as the mother of the Greyflood women, who for some reason smells like the Mire... Expect your Queens to be wrecked for a while.

August 30th — The newest Illyrian cubs are out running around now, but dark news is on the horizon for the Summit and Morrigan will be searching for a new heiress soon.

August 25th — Illyria's first pride hunt was a success but we still have two more to be rolled if anyone wants to jump in on them! Morrigan is recovering while continuing to reach out to current and potential allies, now including the Oasis.

August 19th — Illyria Summit has welcomed its very first royalty born into the pride, but the circumstances surrounding their birth can only be a harbinger of wars to come. Turns out the Summit's enemies are far closer than the leaders might have previously believed. Alliance talks continue, now including Roan visiting Illyria himself.

August 13th — Strangers and kin continue to show up on the Summit's borders, willing to brave the permanent winter to join the icy stronghold. Though with such an influx it will make it difficult to keep a few snakes from slipping in the door... Meanwhile, the most proficient of our hunters are working hard to build the pride's food cache with three hunts this month so far!

August 7th — Talisa and Avaneira are named as Morrigan's fellow leaders while other familiar faces, both new and old, flock to the claiming or to the borders later to either join up themselves or to offer congratulations. Though maybe some are just there out of sheer curiosity?

August 2nd — After hearing a rumble from the mountains nearest Vermeda, Morrigan Greyflood is pulled to a once impassible mountain peak and after making the climb, the once queen crowns herself High Sovereign over a new territory, believing it to be fate and the will of Maua.

Laws




  1. The High Sovereign, Sovereign, and Heir/ess are equal in all but title. The High Sovereign will fight to defend the crown unless somehow incapable, in which case the Sovereign may fight.
  2. The same goes for inheritance; the Sovereign will inherit first, followed by the Heir/ess if the Sovereign is incapable.
  3. The Summit is ruled by the leadership tier but major decisions would not be made without consulting the rest of the pride beforehand. They are more of a figurehead, and should be treated the same as other members.
  4. Abandoning an ally in a time of need outside of mortal peril will be met with great disdain and likely result in banishment from the Summit, if the rest of the pride agree.
  5. As far as wars go, all enemies are fair game. Do as ye wilt.
  6. Ranks are expected to fight in war should the need arise and will thereby be expected to defend their ranks. Any of these ranks may be challenged for outside of the leadership or occupational tiers.
  7. Confirmed allies are welcome to come and go as they please, neutral trespassers should be stopped with caution and questioned, while enemies may be attacked on sight if posing any threat at all.
  8. Be considerate when recruiting. The Summit wants loyalty and strength over numbers. If an enemy stakes a claim while recruiting, fight for the claimed subject’s right to choose. Otherwise, Illyria is a place of freedom and no claims should be made on anyone except in the case of warfare or welfare and lionesses will not be kept against their will.

Illyria Summit History Year 8



September Y8

Illyria SummitLorien Plains HEROES OF LEGEND — Morrigan finally meets a representative of the other new pride in Amaryllis, but it comes in the form of Ghyslaine, one of Alaric's allies. Exhausted by her grief, however, Morrigan is willing to reach out an olive branch. Good thing, too, since Ghyslaine is already friends with her friends!




August Y8

Illyria SummitRogue THE SUNDERING — It is not war that brings the next funerals to the Summit as they feared. Instead it is mother nature who with one fell swoop cleaves the lives of some of the nearest and dearest to the Illyria's ruling pair. Morrigan can only watch helplessly from below as one of the Peak's edges collapse between the trio, carrying them all down to their deaths.




July Y8

Illyria SummitRogue ICEBORNE — Heavily pregnant and dreading the inevitable birth of Illyria's first royalty, Morrigan ventures alone out on the Freeze after being too uncomfortable to sleep, only to be caught out by Halvar Rike. Recognizing each other, a bloodbath quickly ensues, resulting in the birth of Illyria's first Summit borne cubs.




June Y8

Illyria SummitVermeda BrookObsidian HollowAndal OasisRogue I AM IRON, I FORGE MYSELF — Morrigan Greyflood is drawn to the snowy mountain peak by the sound of shifting earth, a last remnant of the gods ire it seemed. Finding an inhabitable territory in a previously impassible part of the lands, Morrigan claims it for herself and her wife under the belief it is fate and Maua's will to return her to a home like her birthplace.

Illyria SummitWolfbron Bluffs THE KING IS DEAD, LONG LIVE THE QUEEN — Morrigan visits the Bluffs alone with the intention of better understanding an enemy she knows little of and the discussion between the two mountain queens takes a few interesting turns.
