June 27, 2024 Conflict and tensions rise as prides come head-to-head with one another across Amaryllis - just as Pyrrha and Cassius take the leap to try and claim (or reclaim) their own thrones.

May 24, 2024 Rulers continue to shift, family strife ensues, and, per usual, tensions seems taunt and always lingering on the horizon.

April 24, 2024 Things are rocky within Amaryllis as the Dieudonne clash result in three deaths and forces a shift in the rulership of Firnen Rainforest. With Caladan Cove freshly overturned as well, what will the consequenecss of these events be?

March 30, 2024 The lull has ended as a long standing family, the Dieudonné, launch death matches against their own. The Plains sees a challenge from a new comer, Aphrodite, and the quite pride is pushed into the spotlight.

March 19, 2024 A momentary lull has overtaken the lands of Amaryllis as its inhabitants attempt to find their footing and rebuild after a string of challenges. How long it will last, however, nobody can be quite sure.

February 11, 2024 The Mire has fallen from the Stärke family and is now held by Luther Rike. The change has stirred but the fighting nature of those on the island. The Brook finds a new leader with Icefang and Isla takes over the Lagoon after a storm pushes out the old leader. Reti finds himself the leader of the Hollows after Alexander is hurt. The Oasis finds a new leader in Léonie who is soon tested by Harou.

January 8, 2024 The snow has finally begun to melt anew, which means that the world is slowly returning to the much-anticipated summer season. With the various holiday activities and the other jests put on by Nafasi also coming to a close, it is safe to say that winter is finally over.

December 5th, 2023 Nafasi had pulled a cruel trick and has sent Amaryllis back into a renewed winter season! But it's not all bad, because the lands will also see a handful of holiday-themed events popping up as a result. To make things more interesting, a wayward trio of travlers have also arrived and are facilitating a mass competition between the prides, bands, and rogues -- formally dubbed the Amaryllis Winter Games.

December 2nd, 2023 The spring air brings forth a number of pride challenges. A familiar challenger for the Cove and the Oasis arrive to try to earn what they want. The new leader of the Lagoon is tested in battle as well. What changes will come from the challenges? Who will remain standing and who will find their world turned upside down?

November 27th, 2023 In a challenge between mother and daughter, the leadership of Wolfbron Bluff changes for the first time in 5 IC years.

November 22nd, 2023 Two death matches, one resurrection, and an almost-war later, the lands find themselves in a constant state of turmoil and calamity. Families have been torn apart and endless blood has been spilt; but how is it all going to end?

November 3rd, 2023 The lands stir violently as a death match rages on between Aeistrios Saxe and Morrigan Greyflood. Observers spill into the pit in droves to witness what will no doubt be a historic battle -- and it is clear that this familial fued is far from over, no matter who wins and who dies.

October 12th, 2023 With winter comes the surge of more pride challenges; Ludivine challenges Ryker for Firnen Rainforest and is victorious in her endeavors, meanwhile an outcropping of maims breaks out on the sidelines. In a shocking turn of events Luther returns to challenge Bruno for Ecrosia Mire, will the former heir prove victorious or has Bruno got what it takes to keep his brother's ambitions at bay? This has undoubtedly shaken things up as Bruno declares war against Andal Oasis and Allies in the process!

September 26th, 2023 A series of pride challenges spark up across the peninsula, while warring families face-off as tensions reach their boiling points. Anthonius Savante barely manages to escape the clutches of Apollinaire Dieudonne with his life, while death looms over the broken truce between the Valour-Greyflood and Saxe families.

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?

Autumn
Though the air is still warm and the sun is bright, the summer is beginning to wane and, with it, the humidity has started to die down. It is a welcomed relief for the inhabitants of the jungle, as more moderate weather will mean that the rainforest will not feel quite as stifling, as well as those from the desert, who's early autumn will see calm winds and mild nights. For the rest of the peninsula, the change in seasons will be gradual, hinting towards the colder months that are soon to come.

singing softly a siren's song,
Conversation surrounding friendship came as no surprise from @Louve ♔ when it was met with "little need for friends". Nutmeg lips drew into a thin line, unimpressed by this ideal that friendships were somehow weak or otherwise took away from the family's ability to keep their sickening traditions secret. "Won't that be your downfall?" Quiet musing comes as a muttered response, for she is sad to be among those who were so alone, cast out due to their guarded cannibalism.

Hairs bristled across the pale backside of the flaxen spotted woman as she listened to the matriarch speak of the choice cubs had. "There's nothing wrong with being a Dawnbringer." Firm words came from her lips, nearly offended by the woman but not quite, for she would not so easily allow someone to mark children with scars. "When must they choose?" There was only way out of the Dieudonné: fight; she'd not give away her willingness to fight for her children, yet unmade and unborn. She wanted to know, then, when her children would be forced to choose, should they become real. "Theodias is as real as any god you follow, and he wouldn't like them marked. Lion meat or no lion meat." Let her god turn the tide of these wicked gods followed by the Dieudonné, needling her beliefs into the lions of the bluffs, into her children. Perhaps her druidic deity was more friendly, more forgiving, than the violent ridden gods these lions chose to follow. Balance in nature, both good and bad, came with the following of Theodias, but no choice must be made whether or not to eat the same species to be deemed "worthy".

she tried not to think of the friend she'd had, once. the friend that had turned her back on the bluffs (on louve) so easily. walking away from it all without even a backward glance, leaving a wound that would not readily heal. "non," she argues, because it is easier to seem cold and uncaring than to admit that she had been hurt. "friends make you weak." this much she did believe, and she lifts her chin in defiance of the pity she sees in @Lycaonia's gaze.

"per'aps not," she did relent, for she had no issues with other names, "but z'ey will 'ave z'e blood of dieudonne. z'ey will be more." there is a dangerous tension that strings between them, but the matriarch does not shy from it. "when z'ey are six months i will 'unt with z'em." a hunt led by the matriarch, so that she might witness their success... or their failure.

singing softly a siren's song,
These solitary creatures holed up among the bluffs, lining their dens with ideals of conquering others and eating their souls, felt so abnormal to the softer, more prophetic woman. Even after all the years she'd spent among their group, delving into the superficial world of a group of lions much darker than she'd originally thought. Now she was tied to a beast scarred yet poetic, hateful yet kind. Someday you might be sorry over your loneliness. To walk a life void of friendships sounded quite awful to the flaxen speckled woman, for she had spent her life among those she felt were kind lions, up until she'd joined Wolfbron Bluffs. Those here were hardened souls.

More curious was the unfolding of the Dieudonné ways as she listened to @Louve ♔ explain the tradition of the cubs' upbringing. They will be what they wish to be. Argumentative with the younger woman, she steeled her sunset gaze upon the dark face of Amara's daughter, moved by thoughts of her unborn children's fates. If they decide not to follow the Dieudonné ways I will support them, and they will not be marked. Emphasis on the denial of allowing anyone to harm them for the sake of a god she didn't follow pooled in stubborn defiance. Let them try to mark her children.

louve... did not agree. "i will never be lonely," she argued, yellow eyes narrowed on the white woman, "i have my husband. my children." family. family was infinitely more important than friends. friends... were a weakness, as proven by the striped woman who had left such ruin in her leaving.

@Lycaonia argues, still, and anger stirs in her chest. louve takes a step closer, her posture clearly threaten, her intent obviously meant to intimidate. "eef you do not respect my rule, z'en you will leave." she was the matriarch of the family that lycaonia had wed in to, and louve would not have their ways so scored. "and you will 'ave no children with dieudonne blood." blessings that had been given could just as easily be ripped away, and she trusted that vermier would listen to his matriarch.

"eef you cannot accept our ways z'en go, lycaonia." there had been nothing but scorn from the woman, and louve was done with it.

singing softly a siren's song,
Argumentative tactics kept the softness at bay as she considered the dark countenance of @Louve ♔. Ever so forceful to push others away, to keep everyone at arm's length. Life taught lessons in unexpected ways, perhaps those who lived among the bluffs saw harder times due to their abnormal tendencies. "Sounds lonely." Family was all well and good, but not every family supported every decision. "You live how you want, Louve." There would only be the silent prayer to Theodias to help guide this woman from the darkness she remained enshrouded with.

Now the woman looms over her, and she shrinks back. Timid buttery features all too soft for the family ruling over the red rocks. "What will you accomplish in your cruelty?" Indeed, what exactly did Louve intend in this meeting, if nothing more than to stoke a small flame within the motherly figure before her. Not so long ago she and Vermier had stolen away from the bluffs, granted for him to rule over another pride. Such a short lived endeavor, though it had given them time alone, time to progress their relationship. "Vermier would not see me leave, and I won't be bullied into leaving." Nor did she wish to brandish claws at this woman, for fighting was not a skillset she yearned to have. If the Dieudonne would devour their own, then perhaps Vermier had chosen wrong.

"Everyone gets to choose who they are. Just because you choose to be a miserable, lonely person doesn't mean you must force it on others." There was no pity for Louve anymore. Let this forsaken creature stand in utter pride of her gloomy existence, but to force something upon others because they valued it above others was wrong. She would not stand for it.

Cruelty? Louve scoffs at this, amusement written in to the scarred lines of her face. She thinks this is cruelty, does she? Claws flex against the red stone, tempted to show her the true meaning of the word. "Vermier is a Dieudonne man," she reminds the too-soft woman, that cruelty tugging her lips in to a twisted grin, "'e knows 'is place."

"I do not bully you, @Lycaonia," there is anger, now, as they teeter on the edge of something explosive, "but z'is is ma famile. Z'e very one you wish to marry in to. You 'ave spat all over our traditions, denied our rule, and you z'ink I will let you stay?' They had never seen eye to eye, not from the very beginning, but this was too much. Too far. To scoff in her face, to spit on her rule; Louve's patience had run out.

And when the woman dares to insult her further? Well, that is precisely the moment that she snaps. "Come, little dove," she sneers, "join me in my misery. Insult me more in my 'ome." A laugh and then she is lunging forward, bursting in to action and spurred on by the insults that fell around them. "I will 'ave your tongue for it."

Closing the distance between them with a full extension of claws, right leg attempting to slap the left cheek of the woman. Those deadly claws remain unsheathed, clearly seeking to do notable damage in the wake of her attack.

singing softly a siren's song,
Tension grew thick between the pair, sunset eyes darkening under the glare offered to @Louve ♔, who presented herself as nothing more than a bully. "Vermier is a Dieudonne man, 'e knows 'is place."Does he? Dredged from memory, she recalled that Vermier wished to fight Amara at some point. Whether Vermier was Dieudonné or not, she somehow didn't think he'd appreciate this woman marking his wife. "You don't understand everything." Certainty prevails from her tongue, shaking a wizened finger at the girl.

"I don't agree to you scarring children," soft voice seethed, shaking with anger that caused pale legs to stiffen, "and I said mine would choose if they wanted to do your tradition." Savages marked children, tilting the balance of good and evil towards one end of the scale, which simply would not do. Invoked through the heated exchange, she builds her momentum behind the soft voice, her muscles becoming more ridged as her glare steeps upon flaxen features.

Intention rises from the charcoal pied woman, who launches towards her with a frightening ferocity which she is wholly unused to. This leaves her little time to react, where Louve's claws sink into the left side of her face with piercing strength, sending a half-scream through parted flaxen jaws, too slow to properly dodge from harmful damage. Pain overwhelms her for half a heartbeat with crimson springing on her soft, unmarked flesh.

Instead of back down, for she knows this is expected of her, muscles tense, and she launches her own left forearm towards Louve's right side of her face, trying to find purchase within softer skin if possible, but would be satisfied with any grief given to the other woman; simultaneously, her neck cranes painfully as her parted jaws attempt to clasp onto the right arm that Louve held the left side of her face in, pulling ever painfully and deepening her own wounds in doing so.

Fury burns in her blood at the insults, her temper explosive in the wake of such disrespect. Lycaonia thinks she knows her family and yet she is oblivious. Louve will certainly have words for Vermier, too, for bringing home one that is so unsuited to their lifestyle. And if he turned his back on tradition? On loyalty?

Well, Louve may have to take more than just his tongue.

The soft woman is not meant for battle. Normally Louve would have respected the fact that she didn't back down, that she attempted to retaliate, but all it was now was extra fuel for the fire. as her claws gouge deep in to the womans face louve allows gravity to carry her paw back down and thus lycaonia's teeth snap shut on just the top layers of skin. enough to bleed but not enough to slow her down.

as for the claws that fly towards her face? louve does not avoid them as easily, for though she jerks her head in the opposite direction they still leave significant scratches down the right side of her face.

continuing the direction of her head she jerks to the left and down, attempting to sink them deep in to the right shoulder of the pale woman. following through with the attack she shoves forward at the same time, attempting to put some serious bruising force behind her teeth.

singing softly a siren's song,
The most ironic part of the entirety of the situation she found herself in, was that she had never once said she wouldn't participate among the ever important Dieudonné traditions. Just that her children would have a choice if they wished to follow such traditions, and that she wouldn't see them marked under some god's eyes, when she had her own god presiding over her family. As much as she was Vermier's woman, she was still a Dawnbreaker, and Theodias still presided over her above all else.

Engaged now with bloody battle she feels the claws tucked into her once-pretty face drag downwards, creating deep trenches in the soft cheek, causing her to wince, merely snapping jaws on the very outer layers of Louve's arm. A graze, nothing more. Those same claws find themselves grappling with her shoulder, creating deep punctures there as well, enough to enter muscle, while forward motion from the other woman pushed her head backward, leaving bruising on her gums and lips.

Pain, it's nearly all she can think about, with an edge of panic for her life. Few times she'd encountered these moments. Defense was one thing, something she could do, for survival.

Although her claws drag across Louve's face she finds no hold there, and instead seeks to try and find purchase in the side of the woman's neck, now hopefully more prone to such an attack; at the same time she attempts to bring her head up in an arcing motion, to try and collide with Louve's chin while avoiding further damage to her mouth. Breaths were growing somewhat heavy at this point, exerting herself, pushing through the intensity of pain she felt thriving across her face, and she hoped above all else that she didn't lose, to prove that she was worthy of this family, even if they weren't worthy of her.

it is not her claws that sink in to the woman's shoulder, but her teeth. and thanks to the lowered position of her head lycaonia's attempt to head butt her is all but entirely avoided.

louve's paws are grounded, and it is only when she feels the woman's claws on her neck that she lifts one again. as the pale woman's claws dig in to the side of her neck louve attempts to slash at the tender underbelly that was all but laid out in front of her. at the same time she abandons her attack on the woman's shoulder, jerking her head up again, attempting to mimic lycaonia's own attempted attack and slam the top of her head in to her chin.
