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!

Claiming is welcome and encouraged!

When she made it to the passage, she was on her way out of the lands. Yet, there is hesitation there within her because this land is... all that Taraji knows. She doesn't know where her siblings are now. Doesn't... know much of anything really. Not who she is, or what she's expected to be. She just knows that her chest aches with grief. She stands there along the shore- watching the waves lap hungrily at it, feeling unsettled and... exhausted. She is exhausted by the toll that life is taking on her, and she knows not what to do or where to go.

Leaving seems like a good bet, she guesses.

The young adult was certainly trying her damnedest to keep tabs on any of Tiamat's children. If anything, they were the smallest connection that she had to the only friend (and honestly, only mother) that she had ever had. Thus, she felt they were as close as kin as she could get even if most of them were drastically different. Either way, they were ( to her ) family and when she saw @Taraji headed towards the Passage, Carina made a quick beeline and followed.

Not wiz'out me you're not. She said as she broke the distance between them and sidled in to stand beside the yearling. Whether they were claimed or fought over, Carina was going with her wherever she ended up. If anything, this would give her a chance to figure out what to do and how to get the other kids to stay together... even if she highly doubted that they would.

Being in the Passage was a great reminder as to how young she had been when she had arrived... how hungry and alone she had felt until Tiamat had fought for her. Even though it had been a claim, it had led her on the only journey she knew.

So much had happened so fast and her mind was on so many things at once. Yet her path always took her back to the passage. And this time, she was drawn towards it for good reason it seemed.

As the pale lioness trotted along the sand, she saw the yearling not too far ahead. Concern creased her features as she approached and sat nearby. What could she even say? She could tell there was a lot on the youth's mind, but she wouldn't press. Only offer company in a time where it might be needed.

When she saw @Carina she offered them a small smile in greeting. "Trying to figure out where your path is taking you now? You would have a home with the Cove...if you wish."

Kireena passed to the passage where she saw the forms of three felines. A chuff alerted them as she drew closer, smiling at the trio. @Carina was recognized as the one she had worked with for plants and the Rainforest heiress tilted her skull in greeting. She didn't recognize @Taraji but did recognize @ Lagertha from prior meetings.

"The rainforest is a suitable home as well if you're not opposed to being inland.." She had thought that the woman in hues of violet had been within the Lagoon before but she perhaps could have been wrong. "I'm Kireena...Firnen's Heiress..if that's somethign you wish - you'd be welcome there as well."


Want to plot with Kireena or another character? [Click here!] I'm always open for threads - and will also spree if you'd like. Just let me know! My PM's are open as well :)

faustine happened upon the group after stalking @Kireena ♔. she had kept herself far enough that the firnen heiress may not had noticed. she realized it was easier to follow someone else than search on her own; it wasn't cheating, it was working smart. faustine was happy that her first attempt had been successful; kireena did show her two potential rogues that needed a home. one of them was an adult female too. greetings everyone, i'm faustine of wolfbron bluffs, a pleasure to meet you she said in her faux politeness that sounded much honest than it should be now. faustine had time to train herself, to speak in a way that kept the feral ghoul asleep. her eyes lingered most on @Carina, since she must be the one who made the final decision for the two. my pride is looking for strong female members, you both look to have potential. @Taraji

NOTE: faustine is a cannibal and speaks in a heavily accented english. she may attack without warning and/or act creepy around your characters.

Twice is a coincidence, or so they say. Perhaps such a saying could apply to discovering another yearling in the Passage so soon after the last one had passed by.

If she thought about it a bit, the reason behind why this place might be frequented by more displaced youth should be obvious, but in truth, Myra doesn't really care all that much.

"Greetings, strangers." She sweeps her way up to the gathering group, taking a moment to note the faces of the other recruiters who'd been quicker to arrive on the scene. @Lagertha is the only one vaguely familiar to her, but the contrasting scents of the Rainforest and the Bluffs don't particularly trouble the huntress.

She shifts her reptilian gaze to study the rogue pair instead, reptilian gaze moving appraisingly over @Carina and then @Taraji. Hadn't the purple one been aligned with the Lagoon, once upon a time? The clues are coming together. "The Mire is also looking for strong and ambitious youth to add to our ranks. You might find that this is the best time of the year to get yourself settled in, if such an offer interests you." The cold seasons brought many hardships, but at least the frost was kind enough to harden all the mud.

devils roll the dice -- angels roll their eyes
She is not lost within her own mind, in the confines of her solitude for long. A familiar voice speaks, and she turns her head to see @Carina. The smile that blossoms to her lips is tentative, small, and a broken thing. "Not without you." She agreed simply, content to have her friend beside her on the adventure ahead... when another arrives.

A strange female who smells of the Cove speaks, and Taraji's senses prickle with that knowledge. Hadn't her mother been allies with the Cove? Where were they when she lost her? When she lost her home? Lost everything. The female seemed to speak to Carina more, and so Taraji looked between them- considering that, when another arrived, and she was of the rainforest.

She supposed the rainforest could be cool, because she'd never seen one, and well... that could be cool to see... but she glanced outwards- looking away from the land, for a long moment, considering what the two had said so far, when another arrives. This lioness does not appear much older than Taraji. She speaks of the Bluffs, and Taraji wonders where that is in relation to the land, considering that as well... just in time for one more to arrive- a scent she recognized again. The Mire.

She felt her ears flatten, as she looked to Carina, unsure what one should ask. What one should.... say. She had never been in a situation like this before. She'd never needed to speak to so many strangers, but she considered her words. "My mother is... was Tiamat Anatu. She was the Queen of the Lagoon." She said simply. "I am Taraji. I... I don't know where my siblings are now. But there are four... three of them." She said, almost forgetting how things were now.

"I..." She trailed off, and looked at the lioness from the rainforest for a moment. "What is a rainforest?" She asked, curiously- before looking to the Cove female, the bluffs female, and the mire female.

"I know the Cove and Mire were allies of the Lagoon under my mothers rule...." but she did not know about the Bluffs. She couldn't remember, she just remembered the Cove and the Mire from various events and things. She trailed off, looking up to Carina with a help me look because she truly didn't know what else to ask. It was all... just so much. No one had ever told her what to say when considering another pride. She had never dreamed of having to join somewhere else. She had thought that her life in the Lagoon was forever and now? Now she was lost. Taraji did not know who she was, or what she was.

Once a princess. Now a nobody.

But at least, there was Carina. That was warming balm to her soul. She had that familiar face with her. A lioness who could easily be her friend, if she wasn't already. She had Carina, and surely, no matter what came next... they'd figure it out... Right?

Wherever the path led them, Carina was happy to be by the side of at least one of Tiamat's children. To know that she could focus her efforts somewhere to try and keep her best friend's soul alive in some fashion. Though, Carina wasn't quite so determined to believe that she was truly gone, either. Not that she wanted to speak that out loud and give anyone else hope that might never come but she had never known Tiamat to have many, or any, weaknesses and the sea was no stronger than she was.

The masses arrived one by one, of course. Remembering her own time when she was just a few months old and how they had looked over her tiny, hungry body and had fought for the right to bring her home. @Taraji was lucky this day that no one dared to do so and perhaps part of that was because all that had gathered were lioness' themselves.

@Lagertha was the first to arrive and she remembered the lioness from one of the events the Lagoon and the Cove had shared. Carina hadn't participated too heavily but she gave the warm-coated woman a smile, even if she felt as though her attention was too much on her and not on the princess-not-princess. Zhat will be up to Taraji, in zhe end. The medic announced with a nod of her head, knowing that this was Princess Taraji's decision and unless the girl specifically asked for an opinion it would be her choice.

@Kireena ♔, another face she remembered and had advised upon a plant, arrived next. The same smile given to her and a small bow of her head in greeting. Kireena offered up the Rainforest as a potential home, as had Lagertha and the Cove, and a Rainforest could be a nice place to live if you were prepared for a more humid heat than that of the Lagoon.

Then came @Faustine ♔ who Carina did not recognize or know to any extent, but did recognize the scent of Wolfbron at least. Remembering the spotted leader from there but entirely blanking on the name. While flattered that the yearling thought her to have potential, she wasn't quite sure it was the kind of potential she wanted. Faustine spoke of strong females but Carina wasn't a fighter, or at least had never been prior, but could certainly heal them. As was proof of the multiple times that she had healed Apollinaire.

Another was a somewhat vague face hidden in the time that she had spent with Tiamat in the Mire before her friend had won the Lagoon. @Myra's name was blurry and not given, so that certainly didn't help to make the memory less foggy. From here she simply allowed Princess Taraji the opportunity to talk and when she introduced herself, Carina made to mention who she was before letting the girl continue. I am Carina Zvezd. She had no title and no true relation to the girl at her side but it was her self-given duty to protect and make sure that she was safe.

In silence she stood and waited for her "ward" of sorts to figure things but she was quick to pick up on the signs that she needed assistance. Guidance, even, to be able to know what she might want here. Carina had expected it in a way that she might need an extra boost. It wasn't as though the girl had ever been old enough to come out here and know how the Passage or the other prides worked. Your muh'zer was once allies with zhe Cove and Ecrosia. I do not recall an official alliance with zhe Rainforest but I do believe your mother was working to be allies with zhe Bluffs. If that was one of the many questions that Taraji may have had and she wished to fall in line with what her mother might have chosen, that information should be able to help her.

What is available of your ranks? she asks each one of the representatives as her eyes swung from one to the next. Are zhey open or able to be challenged for? Will freedom be granted to ei'zer of us should we choose to leave? More than anything her focus was entirely on the Princess. Her princess. These were important questions that she was more or less asking for her and not herself, though being a Lead Medic again would be quite nice.

It didn't take long for others to arrive. But she did find herself grateful that no males had shown themselves. Though not above fighting to ensure that they were given a choice rather than some males pissing all over the place just because there were two females in need of help.
She did recognize all recruiters that arrived so far and she did give them all a nod in greeting. But her main focus was on @Carina and @Taraji.

"Of course," the warrior queen said with a small nod. "In the end, what matters is that both of you find a place where you can feel safe." Safety. Safety and comfort were the main things she thought of for both of them. But she wouldn't force them to come with her. That was something she never agreed with. She briefly glanced at @Kireena ♔, giving the woman a small smile before her gaze returned to those in front of her.

"Strong fighters aren't everything," Lagertha spoke calmly, ears perking ever so slightly. "Gifted healers are just as important. As is anyone, no matter what path they take or if they're still figuring out what they want to do." Straightening a little she gave both Carina and Taraji a smile. "We do have a few open ranks that I'm sure you would prove perfectly suitable for quite quickly. And we would never force anyone to stay should they change their mind. Having a medic around would definitely be a great thing."
