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?

Winter has finally landed within Amaryllis, bringing with it fresh snow, cold nights, and icy winds. The northern and eastern territories are hit the worst, though the valley, in its entiery, is unable to escape the frigid veil of the season. All inhabitants would do well to find themselves some shelter, and maybe an extra pelt or two to help keep them warm!

+5 Mark a trail through a territory

What the hell was he doing? Why was he out here after being beaten by the very woman he was tracking? A sudden memory of her hips swaying as she had left him made his nostrils flare. Right. He doubted he could use the same charms on her as he did Alyvia and he actually didn't intend to. He felt what he had with Alyvia was a bit deeper than what he was after here.

Carefully he moved through the badlands, the red tinted rocks making it easier for him to blend in. He was also taking his time to lightly scratch any surface that was large enough to make a marker. Nothing extreme just a 'x' to mark it against weathering. The tracks had trailed off and now he was following purely by scent.

A low rumble in his chest came forth while he whispered to himself, his eyes darting across the landscape trying to pick her out if she even twitched. Allez, douce folle, où es-tu ?" he licked his lips hungerily. Tail tip flicking behind him impatiently.

potential xp (double): +10 tell a lie without getting caught (outlaw), +10 gather information about a character, +10 practice speed or stealth (assassin) or +10 learn a characters weakness

helah enjoyed the sheer rocky slopes here, she enjoyed that there were narrow and treacherous trails that led to the small cavern she had claimed as a den. less entries for an enemy to sneak up without her knowledge- or strangers. or whatever this male was. from high up, she spotted him, moving quietly across. he was smart enough to track her, but she wondered... had he considered looking up?

she would move quietly, exiting the cavern, her paws making near no sound on the rock as she quietly and stealthily moved down, trying to make no sound as she did so. when she neared a ledge that was just above him, she would lay down quietly, before leaning just slightly over the edge, before crooning. "and what brings you to my home, handsome?" she really played up on the innocent look, as she stared down at him- like she wasn't a level of insanity that perhaps this male hadn't met before.

Carefully he moved amongst the rocky crevices, listening for the sound of either her or something else. Pausing to take in a scent he could smell her but, where? Before he could glance up her crooning voice made his head snap up. Yellow eyes narrowed then relaxed, though his face seemed rather neutral. Oh he had heard her but he wasn't entirely confident giving a reply while below her. A soft snort and he moved to make the climb up to join her. Minding to give her space on the ledge, keeping a good distance between them. "Do you always flatter the opponents you beat?" he asked with a flash of a smirk on his maw.

Tripfire looked around briefly before looking back at her, "You live out here? With the dust and vultures?" he asked doubting her honesty, surely she could do better in a pride. If she hadn't acted so nuts in their fight he would have even suggested the Bluffs. He hadn't answered her question yet, he was buying time while he thought of a good reply. Something not cheesy and definitely not something overly rude.

she idly lays there until he finally seems to realize where she was when she spoke. a lesser female may have laughed, but her expression doesn't change from an innocent yet lazy sort of look. he climbs up, joining her on the ledge, and she merely rolls onto her side, watching him as he speaks. "only the handsome ones." she replies easily, with a sly grin. or the beautiful ones, she supposes- she wasn't so shy nor foolish that she couldn't acknowledge that a female was beautiful when she saw one who was.

he then asks if she lives out here with the dust and vultures, and she chuckles, her eyes wide. "where else is a lady to reside with no handsome male to care for her?" honeyed, sweet words, as she studies him. "the vultures aren't that bad, a little loud with the ruckus they cause, but not that bad." she adds- though in truth, she rather despised the foul smelling beasts. "what's your name, handsome?"



      |   #5

Tripfire gave a dismissive snort of her explanation, though her repetitive use of the word 'handsome' was starting to grind on him. Yellow eyes narrowed momentarily studying her before he let his gaze flick out over the lands. Keeping a ear flicked back towards her listening in case she moved suddenly. He wasn't completely relaxed in her presence, and he doubted he would be. "Even the ugly can keep damsels safe," he drawled smoothly. Watching some birds in the distance before he turned his attention back to her. She had laid on her side and he felt a hunger in his stomach, wanting to come beside her. However he dared not to. Not yet anyway.

"Honey, sweetie, cutie pie..." he began with tones dripping in honey, locking his gaze with her as if to say 'Change it up, see how annoying it is?' Cracking a wide smile he shook his mane a bit, "Tripfire," time to turn on a bit of the charm, "ma jolie gâterie".

Looking her over carefully, for any sign his accent annoyed her. If it did he would have to make the decision to either contiue annoying her or stop."What about you? What do I call you by gorgeous?" he said opting to use the common tongue to compliment her. Though that was quite the flip from when they first met and he had commenter about her ears...

when he speaks, it is perhaps not what she expects but a wide grin encompasses her mouth at his words. "I'm sure the ugly's claws are just as sharp but they're far less appreciative to look at." She drawls slowly. "They serve their purpose as fodder well enough, though." She adds thoughtfully, with a saccharine sweet smile as she looks at him. leave him to wonder which category he may truly fall under in her mind.

her grin only widens as he speaks honeyed words, and she watches him- lazily. he finally introduces himself as 'tripfire', and speaks again in a language she is unfamiliar with- though she supposed it sounded good coming from his tongue. "call me rosette," she purrs, batting her eyelashes at him. "i don't recognize this tongue you speak- what is it?" she asks of him.

ooc: -glares at for making me look up a word- how dare you make me use my brain... lol

While she had her point about the appearance he knew all too well how deceiving appearances could be. It was actually really hard for him to not casually dip into his usual asshole self and come up with a sarcastic comment. He didn't want to blow this, though exactly what this was he wasn't entirely sure. "Everyone is fodder at some point," he drawled out sounding rather philosophical in the moment.

Oh boy, he wanted to call her many things but 'Rosette' was not something he had in mind. Eyes narrowed a bit at her studying her expression, "A nickname?" he asked with a curl on his lips. He had given her is actual name but he had a feeling this wasn't perhaps her true name? A nickname suited it better.

"My families" he answered coyly, she was not the only one who could dodge questions and feed open ended answers. Shifting to move a bit closer to her, he was cautious with this one. With Alvyia he could already be pressed against her and showering her with affection. However Tripfire was glad for the exercise in patience, it could help him in the long run of things. "You dance as well as you fight?" he asked with a little flash of his teeth in a smile

when he speaks, she tilts her head ever so slightly as she considers his words, and what they mean to him. 'everyone is fodder at some point,' he says, but she is quick to smirk in response. "i wouldn't say everyone- there are those who are the masters of the fodder -- as well." helah considered herself a lot of things in her life, but fodder? no.

there's a curl to his lips as if he doubts the honesty of her nickname. batting her eyelashes, as she looks up at him she speaks. "do you not think it fits?" she stretches, showing her pink splashes on her belly. surely, rosette is a fitting name for such a beauty, as she was.

in turn, he doesn't give her a direct answer about the strange tongue that he speaks, and she merely smirks at him again, her eyes lazily roving over his body, as she sighs ever so softly. "dance?" she questions, as if she does not know what such a thing is.



      |   #9
ooc: ---

while she had a point about not everyone being fodder, he didn't feel like arguing that there was a flaw in her statement. He was here to see if he could investigate those hips a little more personally. Not another fight. A low rumbling chuckle left his lungs while he moved a bit closer again. Cautiously though, if she turned to strike he would be able to back off quickly. "i suppose it does," he rumbled in agreement.

"ah, mon chèri, are you going to tell me that a eye catching piece such as you haven't danced yet?" he drawled it smoothly though internally he was cringing, he didn't like having to put this much effort in. He made a mental note for next time. "No man has danced with you yet?" he asked to get to a better point, moving to try and nip lightly at her tail tuft. His yellow eyes narrowed carefully to watch her in case she lunged.

ever so carefully, she watches him- as he nears her. she is like a serpent, coiled to strike- but only if he makes her. while she watches him, she feigns innocence, but the confusion she feels about the term- dancing is real. what on earth, was dancing?

but, a nip towards her tail tuff, and the meaning was clear- dancing must be what this strange male called it. the most wanton of desires, the most natural of things.

Carefully, but intentionally, she would roll over onto her back, staring up at him innocently. "and if I told you I was nothing but a wee innocent maiden?" she inquires, her eyes studying him.

"would you just take what you desire or would your honeyed words be a ploy to get me to surrender?" she asks, looking up at him.

"what if I told you, I don't like honey words or honeyed actions and to 'dance' with me- as you call it... is to surrender to me?"
