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.

The last several days were a lot. Her body was still sore from the battles she engaged in, but being as restless as always she would leave the comfort of her thick furred lined den and would descent from the snowy mountain. Every now and again she would stop and take a glance at her surroundings, both allowing for her body to take a quick rest and so that she could do a quick patrol while heading down toward flatter ground.

Isla would continue to move at a slower pace once large paws hit warmer earth, cognizant of her healing wounds and wanting to ensure that she didn't disturb them as much as she could. Dual colored eyes would shift and blink, having to adjust to the environment below. With a grunt she would move toward the flowery fields of the garden, the long grasses tickling her underbelly and caressing her sides. She wouldn't stop until she found a spot that had the least amount of flowers growing around, deciding to lower herself back onto her haunches in a sit. With a sigh would she close her eyes, taking in the warmth of the sun, ears twitching and twisting as they listened to the noises around her.

DRAGOS
His cousin had wandered off without company, so Dragos follows her trail until it grows cold in the meadow. He isn’t too worried, but his duty is to make sure she stays safe. Wherever she is, it won’t be far, so Dragos continues to lumber along unhurriedly, smelling the flowers in the metaphorical sense. There was enough smelling actual flowers when Lilliana stuffed them into his mane as if he’s a pack horse for her. He is, but that’s not the point.

His boring, half-hearted search comes to an interesting turn; sunning herself was a pretty creature, battle-worn and charcoal painted. His path changes from away to toward her, utterly happy to have found someone to bother with his unwanted company. Lilli could take care of herself for a bit; there’s a pretty face to flirt with.

"Let me guess," the Savante drawls as he gets nearer, "the other guy got it worse?"

He sure hopes so, anyway.

She hears paw steps in the distance, faint at first but gradually becoming a bit louder as they thudded on soft ground. Nostrils would flare as she took in the scents that lingered in the air, trying to pick up the stranger's scent before they came into full view. It wouldn't be until she noticed she was downwind that Isla's eyes would snap open. Not being able to grab a scent before it was potentially too late would make her tense. Skull snapped in the direction, eyes narrowing as she watched a figure grow larger and larger as it neared.

A male.
Go figure.

A thump of her tail to the ground would happen while he spoke, gaze watching him as he kept a comfortable enough distance. "That was the plan," the wildcat would respond in a rather flat tone, undecided on whether or not she wanted to welcome this company. "You're not going to tell me I would make beautiful children, too, are you?" Her last encounter with a man was a bit odd, to say the least, and she wasn't exactly sure what to expect from unknown lions. Isla never came across males that she didn't know often, but when she was more than likely sinking tooth and nail into their skin.

DRAGOS
The girl doesn’t snarl or snap, but she doesn’t look pleased for the intrusion. All the better, for a challenge. Dragos hums lightly at her response and then promptly nearly chokes on air at her abrupt, unexpected question. "What - fuck - no!" Near speechless for once in his life, the Savante isn’t sure if he wants to laugh or roll his eyes. "What fucking creep thought that was a good pickup line? Damn."

The mood may very well be ruined now, but Dragos doesn’t intend to leave just yet. He flops gracelessly onto his belly, stretching his forelegs and kneading his paws into the dirt. He sighs lowly, comfortable at last. "Tell me it was him you beat up." Because even he knows better than to say ‘hey, you look like a good womb’ to get laid, and any male that tried it would deserve whatever this girl gave to him.

His shocked and surprised reaction would bring the smallest of grins on her face. So that wasn't a common thing men threw at women to see if it would stick? Having that silent question answered for her would allow for Isla to let her body begin to relax, albeit slowly. "Some guy I met in the jungle." She would keep his name to herself for now; the Princess wasn't one to really kiss and tell, so to speak.

As the giant lowered himself onto his belly before her would a brow arch subtly, seeing how care-free he seemed to be within her presence. It made her wonder if he was typically this casual or if he just didn't see her as a threat. Which, in that case, made her fur bristle momentarily. "It was not," she would begin, glancing down at a healing wound on her shoulder before glancing back toward him. "This tiny man deserved what I inflicted upon him." The Greyflood could tell the fiery hatred between she and Hubert would not end so easily, and the only way she could see it ending once and for all is if one of them was placed six feet below ground.

"Who are you?" The sudden redirect from neutral tone to undertones of a demand would flash in her voice, gaze unwavering from his face. From what she took in of his appearance he kind of resembled the older male that had told her those things, but Isla knew better than to assume - many lions within Amaryllis looked similar without being related.

DRAGOS
The shift in her is subtle, and maybe others wouldn’t notice. Dragos, however, is observant when he wants to be. When he cares enough to put aside laziness to use some of that intelligence others insist he has but refuses to display. He maintains that air of casualness, even as his gaze flicks over @Isla's face. Her lips quirk a little, and a soft smile softens her features. Her dark shoulders ease, just a little. There’s reluctance in the shift, but it is there. If he had caused her tension before, it is easing now. She refuses to elaborate on just who was the creep, but he doesn’t care to probe further.

"A little man, huh?" He grins sharply, widely. "They always have the syndrome, you know." Not that he has it - being too big for his own good, Dragos has had to deal with men of lesser stature thinking they can show off by beating him up all his life. Admittedly, he starts it sometimes by asking if they’re compensating for something. But it’s not his fault they’re so sensitive about their size.

An ear flicks at her question, but moreso the change in her tone - it’s one that demands an answer, not asks it. Still grinning, Dragos’s head tilts to the side. Like a cat looking at its prey.

"Does that matter?"

"I'll say," she would retort to his mentions about smaller lions seeming to have a complex. And this one in particular seemed as though he needed to prove that he was better than her. With a blink would her mind flush the Ecrosian scum out of her mind for the time being, instead watching as the strawberry man dismissed her question by shooting his own. "I like to know the names of my company." Having the information of at least a name and a face gave the woman an advantage, so to speak, just in case she needed to dig it out for one reason or another. Her shoulders would stiffen as she continued to watch him, gazing as though trying to test him and make him give her what she wanted.

She had a sort of complex herself, it would seem.

DRAGOS
"Uh-uh," Dragos’s head shakes ever so slightly, a teasing sort of warning. "Nothing's free." But he can be reasonable (read: a dick). "Are you going to tell me yours?" Dragos adds almost immediately, his grin widening a fraction.

His gaze flicks over her suddenly tense frame, but he remains completely relaxed, at ease. She’s a powerful looking girl, probably a bit of experience under her belt, but he’s never been afraid of a fight. Not the physical kind, anyway.

Besides, he has something she wants, and he is nothing but an opportunistic bastard when it suits him. "Or… I’ll play you for it." A bet, a gamble - he’s bored, and he wants something fun to do.

Well this man was brazen, that she was sure of. The way he continued denying her his name before asking if she would give her his own would only cause for a slight roll of the eyes. "If you're worth my time then yes, I will give you my name." 'But so far you are working my patience.' Isla's narrowed gaze would continue to watch him in observation and scrutiny, falling back silent as waiting for his next move.


And then the mentions of playing for the chance to know his name. She had to bite her tongue to suppress a growl that threatened tor rumble, her mind now wondering what Morrigan would do in this situation. Would she go along with the nonsensical game or would she have dealt with a man another way? "Go on, then," the Greyflood would finally reply, ears twisting slightly back before they perked up again. Seeing what he wanted to play wasn't that bad of an idea, right?
