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.

Howl into the Night
      |   #1
The world is loathsome, cold and unforgiving. A shell of the land around it, beaten down by mother nature until it had nothing left to give its inhabitants. And yet, something was still wrong... Oh so wrong about it. It would simply not do.

“Where is it...” comes the ghostly whispering of the denizen stalking the pride lands, her ghostly form flickering in and out of existence as she paces back and forth with madness in her wicked gaze. So frantic in her movements that she doesn't even notice any that might be lurking nearby, watching the spectre throw herself into a frenzy with gnashing teeth and skull thrown skywards in agitation, a snarl — a scream — in her throat.

“It's not here, none of it!” Banshee continues her tirade as she paces back and forth, forever searching for... Something.

Blood. Death. Where could it be?

despite no footsteps or other noises, manon was almost certain she could hear someone in wolfbron who she wasn't entirely sure belonged. picking her way down the bluffs from the family's den, it's not long until the tiny terror comes across the most peculiar of sights. a woman, no doubt, but not fully opaque in a way that makes manon's head tilt quizzically to the side. "what iz not here?" as usual, her words in this tongue are heavily accented and stumbled over - the lack of use very much obvious.

any amount of self-preservation may have sent manon running in the opposite direction from what seemed like a phantom before her. too bad she hadn't been born with any of that. "what brings you to zhese lands, mademoiselle?" she questions, settling a flat, red stare on @Banshee.

Oh, yet another loathsome little creature come to haunt her!

The irony of it all. Banshee rounds on the other as soon as she begins speaking, tongue oozing with the French lyrics the cannibal lioness had come to loathe so very, very much. Her lips draw wide as translucent fangs flash and snarl, perhaps an attempt to threaten the babe — even if she could no longer follow through with such a threat. Like cockroaches the cubs seem to run rampant through these lands. Once upon a time... They would have been very frightened of the bogeyman they might run across.

“It's clean, so clean,” she snarls in reply, a howl as skull swings back and forth in agitation. “There is no blood upon these lands. No war, no death. What has become of life? It pales in comparison to mine.” Her bi-coloured gaze focuses on @Manon, as though expecting some kind of a response from a two month old cub. In truth, she just finds herself slipping to insanity the more the world decides to punish her in a cursed afterlife.

the spectre whips around, all peeled back lips and bared teeth before her. manon simply stands and stares, a flat and unblinking bloody red gaze fixed on @Banshee. there is no fear, for who would be foolish enough to attack a dieudonné in the heart of their own stronghold? no blood? no war? the girl almost wants to scoff. "zhere is." manon hisses her correction, tongue flicking out to lick at the sides of her lips as if to taste it on her own tongue. "weeks ago, in zhe mire, zhere was a war." she adds. obviously, whoever this was had not been around the valley for very long. even in her fresh youth, manon could tell war and bloodshed was not foreign to these people. "ma famille," my family, manon starts. "zhey keep me away." a deep, unhappy frown pulls at her lips at the admission. perhaps it was for her own good, for her protection even, but it was clear she cared little for such shackles.

and i was helpless, tormented, and intoxicated, by the sweetness of your cruelty

i have struggled to stay within the bounds of my family's kingdom since our older sister had brought back manon, spitting and feral eyed, from the war.

each time she steps from the den i find myself rising in tandem, eager to follow. eager to not miss out this time. if there is to be bloodshed, i want my own taste.

but even as i wait to step out after her, i understand why she has risen from her bed. there is a howling that quivers in the air. forlorn, perhaps, like a mother grieving the ache of loss. i do not recognize the voice as i step down the careful slopes, following the dust of my sister's footprints. the voice is deep, old, full of metallic ire.

i smile, stepping out to stand beside my sister. "but there iz no blood here, sweet seester." i turn a wicked eye to the spectre, shimmering in the moonlight. "do you miss the taste, ghost?"

@Manon @Banshee

A twitch of her lips, curling upwards against glowing, translucent fangs, once solid enough to rip and tear the life out of others. Now, just a mere shell of their former power. It is that wicked accent that sweeps across Banshee and mocks her that draws such ire out of the phantom mistress, gut burning deep with a desire to devour. Devour the lot of the French family. But alas, she cannot.

“Too cowardly to bring the war home?” she sneers in response to the cub's accusation of her being incorrect — where a war took place had little meaning for the ghost. All she knew was that there was a lack of blood in a place where there should be; or has the family simply changed that much? Grown weak in her absence, with no apex predator to prey on them? Her gaze shifts from @Manon as another approaches, @Dionysïa, her own words a mockery still of the monster that stands before them... And yet, a confirmation of her own words as well.

Famished,” she sneers in wicked response, “but it won't be long until it is mine to feast on once more.”

manon isn't sure what has brought the spectre to the bluffs, but she can imagine how terrifying a creature this woman must have been in her past life. perhaps even fearful enough to make self-assured manon think twice before messing with her. "why bring zhe war home when eet can be fought elsewhere?" she questions, red eyes unblinking and focused on @Banshee as @Dionysïa presence appears at her side. "eet would be foolish, non?"

then the question and a unpredicted answer. "you cannot eat like zhis can you, mademoiselle fantôme?" miss ghost, the elegant tones mask a very chikdlike nickname for their strange visitor.
