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?

September 28th, 2022 Ryker Dantanian once again challenges Seneca Miroslav for the crown of Andal Oasis. Will another war materialize on the sidelines, or will they all be able to observe in peace?

September 21st, 2022 It seems that the work Maua did to calm the lands has worked, as peace settles over the island and allows those living upon it to enjoy themselves. It seems that Tiamat has grown tired of it, however, as she challenges Alizabeth for Scilla Lagoon. Has the time of neutrality ended, or will this challenge come and go without further violence?

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.

SUMMER
Summer is in full swing now, with clear skies, warm nights, and ample sunshine! As such, the deserts begin to grow dry, the shores remain a blissful escape, the north is spared with cooling winds, and humidity continues to rise in the jungle. Rain and storms are long forgotten troubles by now, which is both a virtue and a vice during the heat of the season.

Spring had blossomed, with it came a torrent of rains and the melting of snow from the heavy winter. Which both fortunately and unfortunately meant the rivers and streams swelled beyond normal capacity. Ronin would tread carefully along the river that led to the falls, not wanting to slip on the edge of the bank, there was no coming out of that river alive. It was normally a fairly clear river, though fast moving, but now, its bottom could not be seen and its depth was unclear. Currents swirled and churned, frothing white over most of the waters surface. It was dangerous and by the spray that lightly touched him he could tell it was still ice cold.

The roar ahead told him the falls were near, he finally started to slow, walking all the way to the edge to peer down where water quite literally spewed over, gushing over the brim and crashing down below. Thunderous, it vibrated his entire body with its mighty and never ending roar. It was there that Ronin would sit, letting the sound drown out everything- even his thoughts. For that moment, the warmonger was at peace.

With how the Brook often was in springtime, she was well versed in avoiding the rushing water of a fast-flowing river or stream in early spring. She knew the snow melting off the mountains caused the rivers to overflow their banks and move faster than normal. It was just how it was. But for one who hadn't grown up around such things, she could understand them avoiding it entirely. The Brook, however, thankfully didn't have its namesake brook flowing this fast. It was safer for the cubs that it didn't flow as quickly as this river seemed to be doing.

Her eyes flickered to a dark brown form that was vaguely familiar. She had run into this lion before, but she couldn't recall where at the moment. But she knew that the last time she had scented him, he had carried the scent of the Mire. Now? Now he carried the scent of Ghyslaine's pride. Interesting. She would stay a careful distance away, not wanting to intrude on the stranger's thoughts or space at all. She knew she didn't like her space interrupted so she figured she would give him his space as well.

He would continue to sit and not think. He was content to just…be. It was nice to not have emotions and thoughts clashing with one another, do this no do that…feel this way, but feel that way. It was exhausting. The Spring time air blending with the greenery and moisture of the falls… It was all so…clean in comparison to the Mire and much more humid than the Plains- though he didn’t particularly hate the dry air there. He just…seemed to enjoy this more. He would have been content to enjoy it even longer, but as he sat there a feeling would creep over him. The feeling of being watched would have the fur along his back bristling, instinct urging him to shift from his relaxed position to stand and turn around, still careful of the slippery ground.

Mismatched gaze would quickly find the dark brown pelt of a lioness, nostrils flared to bring in her scent and it too was familiar, but he could not place it. Brow furrowed as he stepped closer, away from the edge and danger and closer to the lioness- a danger he was well acquainted with judging by the scars on his face and body. I know you…but I can’t place you. What’s your name? He would speak, vocals loud enough to be heard by her over the roar of the river and falls, but not by any others that would be around them. Maybe she would know how they knew each other.

It would seem he would notice her presence despite her attempts to go unnoticed. The urge to slip back into the bushes and remain unnoticed was strong, especially since she couldn't place where she knew the stranger from at all. A dark ear would flick as he turned to face her, muscles tensing in case he decided to charge in her direction for some reason or another.

But he didn't. And it would seem because he was just as stumped as she was as to where she was familiar from. Cassandra would sit there for a few moments, wracking her brain to try to figure how how they were familiar to each other. And then it hit her. Nearly two years ago now - the Pit. They had fought each other, and he had left wounds that thankfully didn't leave a scar on her neck. She would hold off on revealing that tidbit of information for the moment, preferring to answer the question he had asked of her. "Cassandra Valour-Greyflood. And your name?" She asked, expecting him to reveal his name to her since she had told him her name.

"I... know where I know you from now." Cassandra began, her voice careful as she spoke. She wasn't sure how he would react to where they had first run into each other so long ago now. She had been but a yearling, trying to better her skills to help her family then. She was older now, and could definitely better defend herself and her family than when she was a yearling.

They continued to regard each other, Ronin stopping a respectable distance away, but still within easy earshot- despite the falls. She looked so familiar, but he couldn’t place her, no matter how hard he racked his brain, he couldn’t figure out where he knew her from. Had she been part of the war or uprising? Or had he met her on some other field? When the woman spoke, he would nod, a flicker of recognition glinting in his eyes at her name. Ghyslaine had spoke of Cassandra. Ronin Svend…Its a pleasure to meet you, Cassandra. It was nice to put a face to the name. The warmonger hadn’t been there during the challenge, he had already left to retrieve his family.

Ears would twitch as she mentioned she knew how she knew him. His head would tilt, waiting for her to continue, but she did not. After a moment he would speak. Care to enlighten me? He asked, not yet ready to relax around the woman- not when she could be a potential rival or enemy- though he hoped not.

It was odd, running into a lion who at one point had been an enemy of her family. Was he still an enemy now? Or was he more neutral? When they'd fought in the pit they had been on separate sides of tensions. Now? Now she wasn't quite sure... A nod would be given to the lion as he introduced himself as well, though when they'd encountered each other before, they had not exchanged names or anything of the sort.

"We battled once - in the Pit. The way you spoke to me rather pissed me off." Cassandra began, but despite the tension in her frame her voice held no ill-will in it. "And if I remember right, you got your butt kicked by a yearling." A soft chuckle would escape her at her last statement, still amused that she had beaten a full grown lion when she was only a yearling. Must be that Greyflood blood flowing through her veins.
