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!

dirty tricks, but efficient ones.

imogen should know from the plight of her kin that nothing was fair in war. she had watched as the enemy resorted to ambush tactics and starving her family out of hiding to claim their land. the honor they sought to uphold had been stomped on and they had been left with nothing. its a hard lesson to learn, especially as the blue lioness writhes on the ground, stunned and pained. she wonders if she doesn't toughen up and shed her soft skin, would the same happen to her. "scary." she murmurs, almost childlike, empathetically wincing as the lioness is pinned beneath her obviously skilled opponent. @Lucian's words leave much unspoken and imogen with more questions than answers — would he, too, fight in much the same manner?

with lucian nearby, imogen is much less fidgety. when @Yelena arrives at her side, she offers her friend a loose lipped smile. of course yelena would be searching for the most comfortable spot and imogen is pleased to know that is alongside her. "stripes," she attempts to headbutt her shoulder gently, "new queen of this part of beach now." its obvious who the winner is and imogen hopes that their dates on the shore aren't thwarted by land hungry, border romping sharks.

before long, the winner is announcing her victory and settling her hierarchy. her attention shifts at the personal spat that seems to happen on the outskirts and the lioness looks for an exit, keen to leave the territory lest they end up blinded too. she glances to her companions, safe between them and with a deep breath, "should we go?" her tail flicks at lucian's ankles, wondering if he would return to his home where she would cross the shores to see him off before hopefully, finding some bit of sun in the cool autumn rays with yelena.

Hidden the female observed the fight going, the sand under her paws felt warm. She knew no one in this place, none of those who were fighting had a name to them. So she had no preference for who she wanted this lands to belong to.

But the whoever won the right to call this pride their home were lucky, with a lake in the middle, it was such a unique landmark. But not only it provided a distinguising factor of the pride amongs the rest, but it was useful to find water inside.

Finally Cirilla had beaten up the bluyeish one. Unknownst to her, poison was a big factor in this fight.

With her scent masked she slipped out of the pride leaving. But she wanted to try joining it, just because as the Sigrun she was, living by the ocean felt perfect.

yavanna the white


yavanna is NOT currently wearing her bear pelt.
she is only wearing the tooth bracelet on her right paw and the feathers tangled in her thick fur.

Yavanna had followed at her own pace not really caring for who ran this particular pride but interested enough to see what stakes others had in it. For now. Her interest was always fleeting and she always missed the mountains when she strayed away too long. Vio's voice floats to her ears and they twitch, slightly, absorbing the words he's saying even as she frowns slightly at the thought. "Hmm." Yavanna mutters noncomittally. Not admitting whether he's right or wrong in this situation. God forbid she adds to his ego. She would just be quiet and listen. Nod and the like.

it was hardly the exciting fight that she had envisioned. interesting, yes, but the one seemed.... unwell... and thus failed to see the battle to the end. della grows almost immediately bored of it, and her focus settles solely on @Daneri and the log she had sat by. it becomes the object of her annoyance, her claws dragging through it over and over again, chipping away any fractures and leaving only the strongest and healthiest parts behind. they are sharp when she is done, and she holds one paw up to examine them with a grin.

and then daneri (who looks more trouble than anything) demands their leave. della is hardly in any mood to argue (and finds no reason to stay now that all was said and done) so hefts herself up to follow her sibling. "c'mon," she murrs with a bump of shoulder to shoulder, "i'll race ya home." maybe it would be enough to distract her twin from whatever was weighing on her. della wastes little time waiting for an answering, lunging forward, welcoming the pain in her legs that tells her she is getting stronger. whether danny joins her or not she runs the whole way home so that when she arrives back at their den she is exhausted, flopping down for a good long nap.

scary, imogen remarks, and he hums softly. Agreeing without any further explanation. He's seen much worse, but there's no benefit in mentioning such a thing here. The victory might be hollow but it's still immediate, a shifting of power even as the opponent stumbles. Surely there are others to help her; only a fool would grab at power with no safety net in place.

Another lioness joins them, seemingly eager to find a aplace to kick back and relax. He does not know her but @Imogen does, and he's happy to leave the women to their devices. He's done his duty as a scout, grabbing the new ranks and names that go along with them. He nods curtly to both imogen and @Yelena, leaving them as he steps away.

Careful paws make the trek back easily -- over the helpful sand dunes that protect the lagoon from the worst of the seas breeze, and skirting along the edge of the sandbar. The very same that connects it to the rest of the island, specific to this area. Useful and help things both, should he ever have need to return to scilla.

And he knows, more than others, never to say never.

Everything just felt wrong. One of those terrible moments where you're watching everything happen as though you're not actually tethered to the ground. @Hero was the only thing that was keeping her from simply soaring into the sky and disappearing altogether. A little voice in her head that told her that she was still alive, at the very least, but looking at these two women that were fighting over what had almost always been her home.. it felt surreal.

The fact that he mentioned having seen the striped one fight but the other one presumably lived around the Summit and knew his brother -- well, the last bit of knowledge made her assume that maybe she was decent. Though, it didn't matter much given that she was deeply wounded and barrelling out and away from the Lagoon. Carina didn't blame her because even though she had no idea what happened up there in the fight, all she wanted to do was spit at the striped woman. I zhink we should go. She murmurs quietly, wanting to answer him in some form to the information that he given but time was of the essence.

I can't go far from zhe Lagoon, zhough. My friend's children... she had to figured out where they might have gone or help them to find a place to go. The last thing she wanted was for any of them to feel lost, alone or without help. Most of them probably would roll their eyes at the offer of help but she was going to give it to them anyways. If Hero wished to give her company while she waited to scout a child or two out, then she was happy to be accompanied but for now, she knew that this was not her home any longer. exit carina

(2/2) +10 Observe a fight (cirilla vs diomedeidae) (double xp event)

It was such an interesting turn of events. First, Saladin was watching a fight ensue and then the next thing he knew he was watching one of the lioness' give up and forfeit. He'd let out a snort as he watched, thoroughly unimpressed and unamused at this turn of events. He was hoping to watch a good fight, and since this seemed to no longer be happening the yearling decided it best that it was time for him to make his exit. Giving himself a good shake, he gives @Evren one last glance before turning on his heels, heading back in the direction he had come from and making sure he made quick work of getting back in neutral land.

exit Saladin.
