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!

Other Than Bloodsport
Trade Task Clear Day Autumn

“Hm. I do believe my parents would have loved this place.” From the upper edge of the Pit, Patience was afforded a grand view of the infamous fighting arena of the island. Admittedly, even for her, the sight was impressive—the fact there was even seating was bizarrely appropriate for those who enjoyed bloodsport. But, unfortunately for anyone requiring an audience, she had no interest in watching any fights today.

No, her interests, as usual, were in more thoughtful avenues, to what grew from the blood of those foolish enough to throw themselves at another’s teeth and claws for fun. The golden tripod hobbled her way down the natural ramp that descended from the upper levels of the pit toward its center, but only made it halfway before she found something worthwhile. “Oh, well aren’t you a lovely little bud,” she remarked delightedly at the sight of the flowering plant. She lowered her head to nose at its purple blossoms and brilliant green leaves, breathing in its scent with a pleasant hum. Baby Bush. Of course it would grow here.

Beginning to hum a little tune below her breath, Patia went to work. Sitting carefully, giving herself more stability, she set about carefully digging around the roots of the plant, focusing on extracting the majority of the plant while leaving enough to sprout a new stem later.

The events of the past couple days, no matter how thrilling, had taken a toll on Lune. The relentless pendulum swing of emotions had frayed on her nerves, exhausting her mind body and soul. Her head bounded with all of the force of a thousand beating kudu hooves. Lune didn't know what it felt like to be trampled, Maua forbid, but she imagined her current state could rival the experience. Squinting against the bright light of the day she dragged herself forward from her autumn stupor. Languidly, she floated through the rocks and jagged edges. Not the most ideal place to stumble when the world was pulsating and everything was offensively bright.

The babe's dual-toned eyes flitted around, scanning clumps of purple flowering plants - fuzzy and shifting in a soft breeze. She racked her brain for a gossamer lesson taught by a long forgotten, judas cousin. Something to try to hopefully give relief from her pounding head. Lune couldn't remember the name of the herb or really what it looked like... maybe something red? orange? Already feeling exhausted of spending as much energy thinking about it, Lune stopped at a clump of orange-ish hued flower and bit off some of the small buds, combining them with a few leaves. Lune quickly swallowed it down, hoping for the best.

While she waited for the herbs hopefully take effect, she spotted a clump of bright purple flowers nearby. Drawn in by the sweet scents, Lune sauntered forward, oblivious to all around her except for the baby bush. Slowly, Lune leaned forward and began to uproot the plant with a delicate touch. Lune looked up, at first to scan the sky for clouds, then to look around her. A little startled, she noticed another so close - also collecting the sweet baby bush. "Oh, hello there." Her voice was friendly as she gazed at her companion. "Great minds, think alike," she smiled with a small nod to the baby bush.

Patia jumped slightly when she heard another lion’s voice across from the plant, and her head snapped up quickly. Her honey-gold eyes fixed first on the woman’s—a surprising mixture of red fire and green leaves, set within a pale golden face that was smiling her way. She was a lovely thing, and the fact she was currently mid-collection as well immediately endeared her to Patience’s picky interests.

She smiled brightly back, sitting up a little straighter as she paused her work. “As well they should!” she answered amenably. “These are wonderful specimens, aren’t they? Well grown, healthy, plenty of plant to be extracted with still some left behind. And I’ve no doubt, under the correct conditions, that they will keep for a while after as well.” If only she had a secure place to bring them back to.

A wistful sigh slipped from her muzzle as her gaze slid from the other lioness back to the plant, tilting her head slightly as she looked it over. “Feels appropriate that it would grow here, don’t you agree?”

(This post was last modified: 09-14-2023, 09:21 PM by Lune.)

Lune was pleased to feel the hammering thud of her headache fading into the background, thanks for her herbal find. The girl made a mental note to collect more before the day was out - definitely something she would want to have on hand. She was curious about the other effects the herb could have and determined that she would have to preform further testing at a later time.

A twinge of guilt fluttered in Lune's stomach as she saw her companion start at her greeting. Had she been too brash? Lune found herself mesmerized by the other's golden eyes - such a beautiful shade that complimented her coloring quite well. In perfect harmony really. Beauty was always pleasing to Lune and placed her in a good temperament. She took not time in shedding her former fleeting feeling of guilt.

These are wonderful specimens, aren’t they? Well grown, healthy, plenty of plant to be extracted with still some left behind. And I’ve no doubt, under the correct conditions, that they will keep for a while after as well. Lune murmured her agreement to the other woman's statement. She turned her gaze back to their herbs, studying the delicate curve of the purple flowers, breathing in their sweet scent. Feels appropriate that it would grow here, don’t you agree? Now this made the girl look back up to her companion with interest. Was this another who appreciated the starling severity of beauty that could thrive in the most underserving, awful places? "Oh, I'm pleased to hear you mention it. I think it's absolutely necessary for something as lovely as this to offset the sordid rancor of this landscape." Lune affirmed passionately. "Sometimes it seems like true beauty cannot be appreciated unless in the face of savagery."

"My name is Lune," she said cheerily to her newfound friend. Maybe presumptuous, but Lune considered the other woman a friend already - they had a shared appreciation for beauty after all.

hi ladieeees olympia said as three tiny but fat birds flew around her, trying their best to pull fur from her before the winter fully hits. d'you want another eye on something? to tell the truth, olympia was simply here because she had ran out of much needed medicine that would help the pride out when the season changed. she had thought she had enough wormwood, buchu, and gum acacia to last until the end of winter, but when she double checked her storage there were only bits and pieces. she could had hoarded those for herself, but she was in a pride and there would be very sick lions soon. plus, nothing would put her in the good graces of her peers other than helping those in need. how very kind of her! i hope i didn't interrupt it would be strange if the two had been talking about something private. even so, why would they do it here of all places? @Lune @Patience

A kindred spirit! Patience was sure of it, the second she heard the woman speak. Her smile grew by miles, a lightness filling her as she gazed at her newest friend—of course, they had to be friends now—and nodded in full agreement with her sentiments. “And so advantageous for those learned enough to recognize just how handy they would be to all those meatheads throwing themselves at each other here for sport,” she shot back with a giddy laugh. Yes, beautiful and practical; what better combination was there!

She opened her mouth to speak, to offer her name in return for the lady giving her own—Lune, her newest friend—when they were joined by yet another lioness, a few shades paler than Lune. The corner of Patia’s muzzle quirked upward at the realization, but she opted not to comment…

Though perhaps later they could all start a club.

“No no, please, come join us!” she called goodnaturedly, beckoning the second friendly lioness over with a tilt of her head in the direction of the baby bush they were in the middle of collecting from. “We were simply enjoying a token of beautiful utility here in this crude fighter’s pit, weren't we?” Her golden eyes drifted from Olympia to Lune and back again as she stated what she’d meant to state upon the second lady’s arrival. “I’m Patience. It’s such a pleasure to make your acquaintances.”
