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!

It was going to be quite the undertaking, going from one pride to the next to discuss the coming together of a band. It was to the benefit of everyone that they know of the Gold Crows and their purpose, for it could easily be what tipped the scale to one's advantage or demise when the next inevitable war or raid happened. They could even be called upon for lesser things, such as providing a safe escort or stealing someone away from their captors.

The evening air was cool and pleasing, a slight drizzle of rain dampening his dark fur and only further tightening the thick curls of his mane. He didn't mind, having been one to spend many afternoons in the height of summer playing in the ocean surf, water didn't particularly bother him.

Arriving along the clearly marked borders, or so his nose would presume to tell him, he would send a summons for the leader and anyone else curious enough to approach. He would find amusement in the way his call rang out across stone, bouncing through the cave walls and into its depths.

While she was most certainly no leader by any means of the name, Juliette had heard the call sound from nearby and made an explicit interest in at least taking a peek. Rounding each corner of the tunnels carefully and finding her way out with ease thanks to the many paths that she had marked herself. Leading into the soft patter of the rain as it bounced off the outside walls of the pride's inner sanctum and she could see the figure of a dark male not too far away. His hair seemed rather unruly in the matters of the weather but he didn't seem to be itching to get out of it, either. Welcome. She addressed as she came to stand close, also appearing unbothered by the gentle pelting of nature's tears, I am Juliette, Noble. If a leader is who you seek, surely one of them will arrive shortly. For she could likely help them but she was not limitless. @Fissure @Alexander ♔

I am every dream
you lost and never found

There was one thing he wasn't expecting. And it was seeing @Fissure on his doorstep. It was hard to forget the male, especially given their brief, if memorable interaction after a successful hunt. The image of the beast had easily engraved itself on his mind, but he hadn't had the time to search for him. Even now, as he slipped into the scene, it was clear he had been through quite a bit since their last encounter.

There was a still healing wound on his shoulder, but it was no longer gaping and red, instead a calm, pink wound that was mending nicely. Ears cup forward as he hears @Juliette speak, deciding to come up beside her in a supporting fashion while offering her a sidelong nod of approval.

It was then his attention zeroes in on Fissure. "So my words become truth. Hello again, wara. I am Alexander, High Sovereign of the Hollows." A flourish of movement is made as the Savante bows before their company, smiling faintly. Who was he within these lands? He had not yet heard of a handsome shadow taking the throne of any pride.

+5 Patrol your borders

karsa knows he's getting bigger with each day that passes by and with that comes wanting to help and be useful more and more. it's no secret that the boy simply idolizes his father and most of his other family members so as the sun begins to dip towards the horizon, the boy sets off to follow their footsteps on the border in a patrol. yes, even in the rain. not that he would intimidate any would-be trespassers very much considering karsa would barely hit their shoulder. he is alert, ears pressing forward to catch the sounds of any visitors, thieves, snoops, or prey and eyes scanning the brush lined border for signs of people passing through.

it seems however, that karsa's diligent patrol was little needed as the only visitor to their borders seemed to be polite enough to call for their attention. his pace quickens, trying to be as vigilant as possible as the boy starts towards the stranger and finds that his job had kept him enough that both his dad and obsidian's noble were already present. "hello," he greets smoothly as he comes up perpendicularly to the party, blue eyes flickering from alexander to fissure and remaining trained on the unknown man.

Unlike the group he so loved to call "family", Hadyn didn't really care for the cold or the dark. The Savante could have their damp musky earth. He greatly preferred spending the majority of his time outside. In fact that was where he had been heading, out for some fresh air, when a call echoed through the many corridors.

Hadyn's head tilted to the side as he brought up the rear. He angled to look around @Alexander ♔ with curiosity. And upon managing to get a peak at their little visitor, the baron's eyes instantly lit up. My. He breathed as he stepped out from around the other Hollows lions. How.. Red eyes soaking in the view as he momentarily hunted for the right wording. ..exquisite.
Hadyn Sorrince, Barony. One dark paw gently rising and gesturing toward @Fissure. An invitation for the other dark lion to introduce himself.

"Calm yourselves."

The titan ghoul clicks his tongue thickly with (mostly) faux disappointment, the reprimand a low rumble in his throat as he slides his way past @Hadyn, giving the lanky shadow a narrow-eyed glance both knowing and unimpressed. The same sharp glance is leveled at @Alexander ♔ with no more subtlety, once Mircea had taken up the space at patriarch's free side.

Of course, @Fissure is quite beautiful. Undeniably so. But it would likely do the Hollow's reputation better if they could all just resist the urge to swoon at the feet of pretty strangers at their borders. At least pretend to be a little bit wary, please. Fortunately, Mircea is well-versed in the art of raising a skeptical brow. "Greetings to you, stranger. May I ask what it is you seek?"

Had anyone else even bothered to ask yet?

Fissure would not be left wanting for long, soon offering companionship in the form of a soft lioness of warm, cream-colored pelt. She stood a little taller than he, but that was not the most uncommon of things for him. A pleasure, lady @Juliette. He purred. It seems cruel that I should forget a gift of flowers for such a fine lioness, but perhaps if we cross paths again. A raincheck on flowers? This was also not uncommon for him.

The king would arrive next, a lion Fissure had observed without shame throughout the combined efforts of a hunt they had shared in. His compliment had been warmly accepted then, had he been a less seasoned lion in the game of flirtation, he might have even blushed at how forward the red lion had been. King @Alexander ♔ is it? A title truly fitting of one with such a lavishly tended mane. You only need some of the finest furs and trinkets to stand above the noble families I served back home. Fissure could of course provide such items, should such things be of interest to him and his family.

An older cub would arrive next, similar in many ways to the red king. Fissure could only assume @Karsa was a son, but he could be related more distantly. In any case, his presence meant Fissure would need to keep things professional. Good evening young scout. You do well to practice your skills so early in life, it shall serve you later. He offered with a nod.

A dark male strode in next, unique in appearance to put it mildly. Fissure had seen his fair share of lions, decorated in every manner. @Hadyn seemed as though he would fit in better among them as opposed to the lions of Amaryllis. Oh? Are you talking to me? I am truly flattered. He remarked with mock surprise, though he was genuine in accepting such praise.

Last, but not least was @Mircea. This lion was more level-headed and prepared to talk business as opposed to batting compliments back and forth. Fissure welcomed the distractions, but he did have a lot to do and the rainfall was only going to get heavier within the hour. He would nod to the male before clearing his throat.

Gentlemen.. my lady.. I am Fissure, leader of the Gold Crows. We are a newly established mercenary band, set within the heart of Amaryllis. My warriors are ready should you ever have need of them. Of course, we did not pick sides, we are strongly loyal only to our contract. I may offer other services on the side, I have a talent for wine and crafting, but that is unrelated to the Crows. He began, waiting briefly before he might go on to say more, looking for reactions.

Alright, so the last thing that she expected was to be flirted with... especially in front of so many other pride members. Though she supposed it wasn't super alarming given that he seemed to be complimenting others as well so it didn't make her feel as in the spotlight. Thankfully with @Alexander ♔'s support by her side she is quick to feel comfort. Knowing that her duty as a Noble was, thus far, adequate. Her High Sovereign called the dark beast "Wara" and so she stored this away for the moment. Letting her gaze fall to the others that had approached.

@Karsa, one of Alexander's own, joined them and offered an easy greeting. @Hadyn was next and she didn't know him very well but it was clear that his attention was most certainly elsewhere. Thankfully @Mircea arriving he seemed to be above the flirtatious cooing of the party and that eased her somewhat. Juliette was all about admiring what was pretty in life but she was also a tad bit more serious when it came to strangers on the borders. More skeptical and cynical than she should have been, probably.

Eventually she allowed herself to comment on @Fissure's words, ah.. but flowers die and have little use other than their beauty. Best to bring food, to sustain my hunger. She warns him, giving him the option that should he truly wish to bear gifts to her door then he would do far better to feed her rather than to give her something that would die in a day or two. Juliette wanted something that could sustain itself and meat was something to aid in her strength.

Banking on what she had assumed his name was, he introduced himself as "Fissure" which caused her a bit of confusion. Did Alexander having a nickname for him?? It didn't seem like Fissure had previously known Alexander and yet, he had addressed the male... had she heard wrong? Apart from that, he offered what sounded like a third party knife. A soldier to wield for the highest bidder and would serve no allegiances aside from the word of a temporary boss. Interesting.

I am every dream
you lost and never found

The beast is quiet as the others arrive and speak their greetings and opinions. As always, @Juliette was first on the scene and he was always impressed. A warm, inviting smile is offered to the woman. His affections growing for her day by day. He looks to @Karsa for a moment, happy to see the boy being so vigilant in his post. The young Savante was shaping up to be a fine Prince. Pride swells in his chest, but he attempts to not get too distracted. @Hadyn arrives next, and the King withholds a low growl as the Baron offers his own flirtations.

Instead a roll of his eyes is offered to the male. @Mircea arrives and asks a rather good question, one he albeit been a bit forgetful to ask. As was the effect of beauty sometimes. Smirking faintly, those blue eyes shift back toward @Fissure as the smaller, curvy male with flowers in his mane began to speak to him directly. Flattery. It could and would get you everything, that was - if he was suspectable to it.

Alexander certainly was.

"Perhaps I should obtain some of these fineries." He muses, laughing warmly in the back of his throat, the sound vibrating his broad chest. Attention becomes more serious, however, as Fissure speaks on the subject of his arrival. Mercenaries, hm? Intriguing. A tilt of his head is given, thick strands falling along his face with this motion. Those blue eyes are intent, studying their visitor closely.

"What sort of payments do you require for your contracts?" Oh, Alexander. Curiosity may yet kill the cat.

it's not that karsa doesn't trust this man. after all, his father and the rest of the pride members who had shown up to greet him were keeping things laid-back and pleasant. however, one could never be too certain with strange visitors peddling their products from door to door. as the attention is turned briefly to him, he nods in agreement, blue eyes flickering to the scraggy area behind fissure to see if the stranger had brought any companions along with him. "i know." he responds matter-of-factly. a keen nose and sharp eyes would do him good, that was part of the reason karsa had taken up learning the lay of the land not just around obsidian, but around the entire valley. the boy says not another word as the conversation between fissure and alexander picks up, but he does (subtly, he hopes) creep away from the group to check behind an outcropping of rocks for hidden friends or any would-be eavesdroppers, barely catching what the visit was about. mercenaries. even more reason not to trust him right away, karsa decides.
