Deep within the confines of Amaryllis' cave system resides Obsidian Hollow, a place of secrets and meant only for those of iron-will. Decorated with lava tubes and midnight-colored stones, one wrong turn exploring the vast tunnels can leave one perched upon the pride's doorstep, cloaked in darkness and kisses with the company of cold, damp air. Though unknown for anyone outside of the pride, the hollows are also accessible through a hidden passage on the other side of the mountain, tucked on the edge of the Badlands.
OCT 2nd - Rank shake up! Ranks have been given out/shuffled in the meeting. Avana has also called for a hunt to get her mind off of a nightmare she had. Has anyone else had some strange dreams lately?
OCT 1st - The babies are growing up as majority of the cubs in Obsidian hit their first birthday! Still mind your toes, though, as Asteria and Hiccup's kids have begun to venture about (meaning, they're playable XD)
SEP 26th - A call rings for the Lagoon. Will this be a simple challenge, or will tensions snap along the sidelines?
SEP 19th - Roan decides it's time to catch up with the Mire king.
SEP 15th - It appears Faelyn has been forced into a spar with a member of Lorien Plains. What sort of consequences might this have for future pride relations?
SEP 12th - Talks continue for official alliances with both Firnen and Illyria as Roan learns more about Morrigan's run-in with the Rike.
SEP 5th - Round 2 of the meeting is finally up! Also, we have a lowly donkey wandering through Obsidian. Maybe he'll make waffles in the morning.
AUG 31st - Welcome to Isolda as the newest member of Obsidian!
AUG 24th - News comes to light about Sedona's unfortunate brush with the Bluffs. How will Roan respond to the attack and accusations?
AUG 22nd - Roan has called for a much needed pride meeting! He's also called for a little family get together in order to meet the spirit, Kito, which Obsidian members are not required to attend, but are welcome to join in.
AUG 17th - For once, the world seems calm, but for how long? Unknowingly, Roan has stumbled upon some kin as he meets another Hodari in Maua's passage.
AUG 11th - With Maia's victory in Firnen, we sadly say goodbye to our Tolkien and Casales members. However, it offers Obsidian a new/old ally!
AUG 4th - Our very own Maia has staked a claim for the abandoned Rainforest! Maybe Obsidian will be gaining another ally soon enough. There is also a new pride hunt for the month as Avana has called for everyone to join her take down a giraffe calf.
JUL 31st - Looks like Sedona has gotten herself into a bit of trouble in Wolfbron as Kieran attacks her while trespassing with an Andal lion!
JUL 27th - Obsidian remains under Hodari rule as Roan steps away victorious in his fight against Vaghan!
JUL 21st - A ghost arrives on the Hollow's doorstep, but wait... that's not a ghost. It's Taj! Roan's long lost nephew and Lysander's brother!
JUL 15th - Welcome Oskar to the Hollow as our newest member! And a happy birthday is in order for Tomas, Thrain, and Sedona as they reach their first year, as well as Toblerone for her second birthday!
JUL 12th - So lots of prides are getting challenged for, including our very own! Will Roan be able to successfully defend Obsidian again? Stay tuned!
JUL 9th - With the lands thrown into chaos by the weather, it turns out the Hollow is not immune. Large cracks and lava have appeared in the tunnels, making it harder to get around. Be careful, and watch your step!
JUL 4th - Happy July! We've got a pretty easy pride hunt at our doorstep. Hop in for some easy experience!
JUN 29th - A familiar face arrives on our doorstep as Aarani approaches in search of a home.
JUN 25th - Don't forget we have TWO events going on! Dahlia has called together Obsidian's youth for a little game while Jai decided to throw his father a birthday party!
JUN 19th - Maia has challenged for the empty Noble position with Hrefna wanting to take up the position. Willing to give up her own noble rank, though, Hanneth steps in in hopes to negate the need for a fight at all.
JUN 13th - Please welcome Keir and Vitala to the Hollow as our newest members!
JUN 11th - In an effort to better focus on his family, Jafar will be stepping down as Sovereign. With eyes cast to Faelyn in the hopes that she might be interested in retaking the reign so that Roan won't have to suffer the hardships of leadership alone.
JUN 5th - It would appear that someone has finally decided it is time to challenge Walpurgis for Scilla Lagoon. Wonder how this will go.
MAY 29th - Still, there is war and still we watch and wait. Roan's kids grow more and more with each day, becoming all the more curious and attentive to the outside world. Both pride hunts have been rolled, so make sure to get your exits in!
MAY 22nd - The challenge for Ecrosia might be over with Alaric keeping his crown, but the fight is not yet over! Tons upon tons of fights have broken out with the Sigrun/Rike feud being at the core of its reason. Roan has shown up to investigate the situation further but how will this end? Only with blood.
MAY 17th - Our allies' daughter, Cassandra, calls for the Ecrosian Crown. In her bid to control her future, she unknowingly brings the Sigruns drawn into an enemies current land and war breaks out. How will this end? Only with bloodshed.
MAY 12th - In a surprising turn of events, its the tiny Talitha who wins the fight for Firnen Rainforest. Only time will tell what that means for Amaryllis.
MAY 6th - It looks like Roan has come to a sense of neutrality with Alaric of Ecrosia Mire. Wonder what that means for the Hollow? In other news, the king has also decided to throw together a little party for his sister and step-mother! Feel free to swing by and have some fun!
MAY 1st - With the acidic rains wiping out those that had been there previously (because we're so sad they're gone), two others rise in to claim the green and lush land. A former member of Ecrosia under Jafar and a potential ally should he win and an unknown lioness that raises his claim to turn it into a battle of brawn. Could we gain an ally? Or will their be uncertainty in the future?
APR 25th - Prepare yourselves! The children are playable! In other news, Firnen Rainforest has been overtaken by acidic rains, forcing the pride to disband. We know. So sad. Poor Firnen... Now who's gonna take up the Rainforest next?
APR 20th - What do we have here? It looks like the young stranger-cub, Callan, that was found within the mist has a very tired mother, Lexa, knocking at our door. These are the kind of reunions we long to see!
APR 16th - The mist has finally lifted. Maybe now was can find the rest of our pride. Looks like Juliette has already popped back up on our borders.
APR 10th - Babies galore! Faelyn and Hrefna have both given birth to their litters. Prepare to be overrun by even more cubs!
APR 4th - With Fae taking a break from leadership, it's the perfect opportunity for Jafar to step in to help as Sovereign.
APR 3rd - As the birth of her cubs near, Faelyn has taken a step back from leadership for a little while. In other news, Jai has successfully been found!
MAR 28th - A little bit of belated news, but the Hollow will soon gain a handful of new little members as Faelyn and Roan are expecting their first litter together! In addition, they might have also managed to find their son in the mist (provided the dice gods roll in our favor). And please welcome Lotus's mate, Envy, into Obsidian as our newest member!
MAR 23rd - Well, we found a different Callan. So that's something, but the mist is still holding onto our actual members
MAR 17th - Obsidian is hard at work searching for our lost members. Meanwhile, Jafar, Maia, and their children have shown up at our borders, presumably to find a home among family.
MAR 11th - Unfortunately, the uprising for Ecrosia has failed, leaving Obsidian both without an ally and possibly with some new enemies. On the other hand, relations with Wolfbron might be changing. Also, Hrefna has asked Hanneth to hold a wedding ceremony for her and Lysander now that both of them have come of age!
MAR 7th - The same lion that tried to take away the Hollow has succeeded in challenging for the Mire. The former lions of Ecrosia aren't going down without a fight, though, and Obsidian is poised to aid Keir in the uprising!
MAR 1st - Welcome to March! We have now jumped to pride tier level 3! We got a hard hunt this month as 2 buffalo have wandered into the Hollow. We'll need everyone hopping into that asap especially with our diminished numbers. Speaking of which, the mysterious fog is BACK! And it's snatching up members of the Hollow left and right.
FEB 25th - It seems as though something is stirring within the lands... Calgiula comes bearing news of what might be to come. In the meantime, Toblerone seeks to dethrone the sovereign Faelyn.
FEB 17th - Well, two out of three of the current Amaryllis rulers keep their crowns, but what does this mean now with Zoticus in a place of power again? Meanwhile, Hiccup has started us another hunt for the month, and please welcome Asteria to the pride as our newest member!
FEB 14th - As the challenges go on around us, Obsidian has had some recent visitors show up with intentions to join. Kallan has decided to throw her big brother a birthday party! And our first pride hunt of the month has been a success!
FEB 8th - Pride challenges are like gray hairs. You pluck one only for three more to pop up later. Chaos has erupted across Amaryllis as the Rainforest, the Bluffs, and the Brook all receive challenges to their thrones! Be on your toes everybody! In other news, the Hollow has another ruler as Faelyn is made sovereign alongside her husband!
FEB 3rd - Hey, you know that cub Roan brought home the other day? Well, meet your new overlord as we welcome little Prince Jai into the family!
FEB 1st - Happy February! Please direct your attention to our February hunt, first and foremost. Also, Roan has found an orphaned cub out in the labyrinth.
JAN 30th - Finally, the Hodari get a bit of good luck as Roan steps away victorious from the challenge! Now what's gonna happen with this death match on our doorstep?
JAN 29th - As if the challenge for OH wasn't bad enough, a death match has erupted on the outskirts between Saga Sigrun and a Rike! Be on high alert as we await the results of the pride challenge! Also, Happy Birthday to Toblerone as she enters her new place as a yearling!
JAN 27th - So some stranger has decided to challenge Roan for the Hollow. Well... That's. Fun. At least it's not from within this time, so that's kinda nice.
JAN 25th - Final round of the meeting is up. Feel free to exit if you don't have any questions or things to add. Roan will stick around a little longer just in case. In other news, come cheer on your king as he takes part in the Tournament of Spring!
JAN 24th - Welcome Morana to the pride! Also, Hiccup's hunt has turned out a success which means our pride tier has now jumped up to level 2! Way to go everyone :)
JAN 20th - With Aquila's blessing, Hanneth has officially been released into Obsidian! We are now officially allied with the Brook as well. And since no one answered Lotus' challenge for Lead Fighter, the paladin/assassin will take the rank, but maybe we'll still see some action as Avana offers herself up as a sparring partner.
JAN 16th - Hiccup has called us another hunt! And it looks like Avana's was successful, so be sure to exit for the easy exp. Round 2 of the meeting is up as well. Now is your chance to talk about ranks with Roan. He doesn't know where to put anybody, so tell him what your goals are!
JAN 13th - Welcome Juliette to the pride!
JAN 10th - Unfortunately, we lost the hippos, so don't forget about the other hunt. And if anyone wants to start another for the month, have at it! Also, round 1 of the meeting is up! There is a break for questions before Roan will move on to allies and ranks. And it is with a heavy heart that we announce the loss of Húnn, one of Alva's younger daughters.
JAN 4th - Happy New Year! We've got a lot of things going on. A pair of baby hippos have unfortunately found their way to our doorstep! Let's not let them get away. Roan has also called his first pride meeting since taking over Obsidian. Be sure to attend as ranks are likely to be given out. Also, please welcome Hiccup to the pride as he returns home to the Hollow! Ahead of the meeting, Avana has been promoted to lead huntress and has wasted no time in calling another pride hunt! And we can finally officially welcome Kallan into the pride.
DEC 30th - Sorry about how slow things have been! On the bright side, talk is going well with Maia, so looks like we'll be getting an official alliance with Ecrosia soon enough.
DEC 24th - Nice! We took down a giraffe calf in the latest pride hunt. Elsewhere, Roan has decided it is time to figure out what happened in Vermeda Brook as he seeks an audience with Aquila.
DEC 18th - Things remain kinda quiet on the homefront as talks continue with various leaders and Roan continues to search for his family.
DEC 12th - Hey look! We have our first official alliance, and it's with a rogue band! Obsidian is now allied with the Lightstone Outlaw Band. Also, Alva has called together a new pride hunt, so be sure to help out!
DEC 10th - Official welcome to Lotus, as the last of Roan's first recruits from the claim itself. Also, our first pride hunt was a success! Another will likely be thrown up shortly to get our pride tier moving, so be on the lookout.
DEC 4th - In a hopeful reunion, Roan's nephew, Lysander, arrives on the borders. Meanwhile, Faelyn and Avana have both officially joined following the challenge. Elsewhere, a gazelle has wandered into OH as our first pride hunt!
NOV 29th - Another former member rejoins the Hollow when Tobin steps forward after the challenge has ended. Welcome back! Meanwhile, the borders are already buzzing with visitors when Amara, Maia, and Gawain all request an audience with the new Obsidian ruler.
NOV 27th - In a leap of faith, Roan accepts back two former members of Ulla's reign. Welcome to Alva, as our new Baroness, and her daughter Toblerone!
NOV 25th - Roan Hodari steps away victorious in his fight for the Hollows becoming its newest High Sovereign.
- All members, upon joining, are expected to know the laws.
- All members are expected to pull their own weight and work together within the pride. Have each other's back.
- Keep sensitive information about the pride guarded from outsiders.
- When recruiting new members, take the time to learn if they will be a good fit for the pride. Do not claim unless it is for the safety of the rogue.
- Do not cause problems with other prides unless we are at war with them. Never seek to cause problems with allies.
- Other than leadership positions, any empty rank may be challenged for.
- Should something happen to Roan that makes him unable to lead, Obsidian will pass to the Heir. In the absence of an heir, or if they do not meet leadership requirements, the pride will pass to the Sovereign.
Rules are subject to change and/or be added or removed without notice. Roan may make more rules as he sees fit.
