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.

stained glass windows in my mind
Worry prickles deep in her belly, as she departs from the Plains with @András in tow. She moves quickly across the land, following a scent that a mother could never forget- the scent of her son. She follows it to the swamp of all of the gods forsaken places, grimacing as mud splashes up her legs- as she zigs and zags following path after path, her nose losing the scent and then finding it again. The worry deepens as she considers what may lurk within the darker waters of this swamp. She worries and prays that her worries may be in vain- that she won't find a tuft of fur or the half eaten corpse of her son- or... some other sign that he became a crocodile's supper.

And so she wanders, following deeper and deeper into the swamp- searching and calling for him as softly as she can - lest someone else hear her and look for him first.

"Sage?" The call is gentle as she seeks him, as she looks for her son. As she knows, Andras will be tracking him as well.

i desire you to never swim home—the sea glass fascinates you to a high stupor, you forget the world for my sake

They'd been tracking him for months, now. Each day they ventured further and further into the wilds of Amaryllis, desperate to catch onto his scent. And with each day it faded more and more, its once-promising trail fading into multiple directions. They were losing their leads, and they were growing more and more desperate as time creeped on. With the knowledge now that Sersie was alive and keen to come after them, it only heightened their sense of urgency. Already had dread begun to creep in. Already had he experienced the loss of a child, a pain he could not bare to endure again; a pain he could not bare to watch @Ghyslaine ♔ experience.

Sage? he heard her calls in the near distance. Though often they'd split to cover more ground, they'd always remained within earshot of each other, always ready to leap at the other's defense should they run into something—or someone—unsavory. His head perked up from the tanglewood, the gnarled roots of ancient swamp trees creating a labyrinth small enough for a cub Sage's size to slip between, to hide. His own voice bellowed out for him, loud chuffs beckoning the lost son from his hiding place. But as time drawled on, the familiar feeling of defeat began to weigh on him more and more, and eventually he found himself converging his path with his lover's.

Do you think we should start asking the prides? he asks. For so long had they lingered on the fringe of the wilds, careful to keep their identities a secret. András knew he were still likely a wanted man, though he'd long fell down the list of priorities for Morrigan and her soldiers. But Sage's life far outweighed his own, and András were willing to throw himself to the wolves if it meant getting their son back.

i desire you to never swim home—the sea glass fascinates you to a high stupor, you forget the world for my sake
Searching for her son, was not going well. She swore she could scent him- swore she knew the briefest scent that she smelled to be his. Yet, she couldn't get a... sure enough scent. She called out for him, and then a moment later @András appeared, and she looked to him- shaking her head.

Yet there it was, the trace scent... the faintest, and she was off following it again... but there was something she did recognize... so vaguely. Wolfbron. She breathed. I think. She adds. I can go ask Amara... She's a good female. She adds looking to him. If he's not there... I can go to the Summit. I know... the leaders that have retained their prides for a while. She says. Alaric would have sent word if one of my cubs ended up there. She is a fair bit confident about that. The bluffs is... so far from here. She breathes out, worry evident in her tone and gaze as she looks to him.

Surely, he wouldn't have gone that far. That didn't make any sense. So... the closest prides that were near this swamp were the Mire and the Rainforest... But she'd eliminated the Mire, knowing that Alaric would have sent word if a Plains cub had wandered up. And she'd told him the names of her cubs... so, surely. The rainforest... I... We can go to the Rainforest... but this scent is... The Bluffs. Maybe a scout wandered through, and perhaps they saw something. She adds. Starting with someone she knew, seemed a safer bet. But the Rainforest is closer.

They had a lead. They had something. Anxiety riled in his throat, manifesting in the half-part of his lips, the boyish furrow of his brows. Age had long gripped the ferocity of his once-impulsive actions, humbling him into a more mild-mannered façade. Living in hiding had too tempered his drive, and where once he would have marched upon the borders of the Bluffs and likely soiled whatever alliance they had with the Rike, he now thought more methodically, more carefully. The Bluffs had been no allies of the Summit last he lived there, but he had never been made privy to their personal alliance with the Rike and the Starke King of Ecrosia. It were a mercy, then, that @Ghyslaine ♔ knew of its Queen regardless.

We go together, he promised, uncaring if such a visit would threaten his anonymity. He would run to the ends of the earth if it meant rescuing their son. However, András wasn't nearly as keen on the Summit as we was the Bluffs. Certainly, if they had captured his son they would have made it known. András had never known Morrigan to hurt a child, and figured that if Sage were not there simply existing separately from his parents, then it would be far more likely they use him to lure András out instead. In this, he was fine with letting Ghyslaine go herself, though he would likely linger close enough to make sure nothing went awry.

The Bluffs, in this case, seemed the best first option. We'll go to the Bluffs first, he states, keen on following the one lead they had. While the Rainforest was closer, if it were Wolfbron Ghyslaine had caught the faintest hint of, then he were determined to go there first. If he is not there, then I can go to the Rainforest and you to the Summit. And then? Then, he wasn't so sure. Perhaps they would need to plead to any bleeding hearts that would listen.

We'll find him, he says, attempting to reassure her. Deep down, András knew he was attempting to reassure himself, too.

The scent of Wolfbron, the slightest smell of a passing lioness- or perhaps that is someone who just walked through the area... maybe she's losing her mind. But she swears she scented it. She looks to @András and studies him, and feels that worry prickling in her belly. When he says that they will go, she doesn't question that- doesn't question him. She knows that he knows the potential cost of this... that someone may know who he is. Or perhaps they will not.

"We go." She says simply, in confirmation of his statement. "Do you know who rules in the rainforest?" Truly, she had no idea, and didn't know how well they would take such a question from him. "I can go to the Summit. I need to go... and check in on Maven and Capucine anyways." She mutters- her worrying mind more fixed on Sage in the moment, as she stared around them.

"He's fine. Surely. He's okay." She whispers, an attempt to comfort herself more than anything. An attempt to make this anxiety lessen so she can focus- an attempt to make... something... or any of this okay. "We'll find him." She echoes, raising her eyes to meet his- and wondering if he believed the potential lie too?
