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.

Obsidian Hollow

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.




News


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 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 12th - So lots of prides are getting challenged for, including our very own! Will Roan be able to successfully defend Obsidian again? Stay tuned!

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.
