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?

September Y12
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.

Glory and fame
Blood is our name
Where had she disappeared to this time? Well, that was always the question, wasn't it? It seemed to have become a habit for her to sit on the highest peak, watching the clouds, the sunrise, the sunset or even just the birds that dared to soar so high. Surveying her kingdom. Not that it really was her kingdom, but she couldn't help but dream that one day, one of the territories below could belong to her. After all, she was a princess. So she should fight to claim a throne one day as anyone did, right? Her pointed ears flicked when the call came from the border. Huh, unfamiliar voices, at least for now. But she had to do her duty and check it out in case no one had answered yet.

She'd already started her oh so graceful and regal descent when her mother's call reached her. Oh. OH! It was something about the tone of her mother's call that sent her barreling down the mountain slopes in a less graceful manner. When the large group came into view, she was still sliding, paws frantically moving until she came to a skidding halt next to @Faelyn while trying not to spray anyone with snow and dirt. Tossing her head a little she tried to get her messy mane out of her face, lilac gaze darting over those present before she purred a greeting to @Morrigan ♔ and settled onto her haunches right on the border while trying not to stare too much at those present, curious. Pointed ears flicked and twitched as she listened, trying to make all the connections since she'd not heard everything. But she did look at her mother eventually, tilting her head. "Móðir?"

i. Mother?

There was so much to see. No matter where she looked, there were new things to look at and get lost in wanting to know more. Her mother had pointed out some plants and herbs along their travels and she was trying to make sure she paid attention. She moved along with her parents and cousin. She was happy to have another who was closer to her age. She loved her parents but they were old and Amani rarely got them to play with her. Meeting @Roan had been a life-changing moment for her. It came with the promise of adventure.

She was giddy as they moved up the snowy mountain but as they stopped she found herself getting shy at the idea of meeting new lions. She didn't know who these lions were, no matter how many stories were told. They were strangers. @Nyota's playful swat at her tail catches her attention for a moment. Her cousin was more outgoing here, maybe it was because she could feel a connection to the snow-covered lands. Others started coming and Amani slipped in next to her mother and peaks over her back at those who were gathering around them. This was going to be their home, cold and all.

Hanneth smiles at her family as she waits to see who will be greeting them. It doesn't take long for @Morrigan ♔ to show up and a smile spreads across Hanneth's face. She moves forward to greet the larger female with a gentle head rub, leaving her daughter to stand on her own. Her ears flick as @Roan speaks to the leader while Hanneth takes her time to look over her. She has far more scars upon her body than Hanneth remembers and it seems that things had been hard for the strong lioness. Hanneth smiles at Dero as he speaks to her asking for her to allow them to stay. Hanneth nods to make sure that Morrigan knows that she desires this as well.

@Faelyn arrives and Hanneth moves to rub her head along her. It was so good to see the pale lioness. She had been part of Hanneth's family for longer than she had been Roan's mate. Even if they didn't know it. Behind her is @Alvena and @Hero and Hanneth gasps softly. You both have grown so much. She feels a pang in her chest at how much she missed while gone. She knew that it had been for the best. Her and Dero needed to find themselves again, find each other again, but that didn't mean that Hanneth didn't think about those that they left or lost. She takes a few steps toward them, unsure if they would accept her attention or not after being away for so long. Another arrives but Hanneth isn't sure who @Valka was and offers a small smile before focusing on her grandcubs again.

Nyota looked up to her uncle as he answered her question before her mismatched gaze looked back to the mountain. She tried to picture her mother living in a place like this after having grown up in her father's family pride, but it just didn't fit the image. A mountain didn't seem like the place Avana would be happy in, not without easy access to her healing plants and such, though it did seem like the perfect place to see the stars at night. Which aspect was more important though?

The teenager's thoughts were easily distracted away from this internal debate when the presence of a stranger greeted them. @Morrigan ♔'s large and dark figure contrasted greatly against the stark white of the snow-capped peak, making her appearance that much more imposing. The child stopped in her tracks, but just for a moment. The stories told along the way to Amaryllis were enough to put together who this lioness was even before hearing her family members begin to greet the queen. "Hi!" Nyota chimed in where she could, just a simply little greeting paired with a wide-eyed grin. No matter how big and strong the woman looked, the young girl was told these lions were friends, so why should she fear any of them? One by one, her family greeted the sovereign before more faces arrived at her side. With a glance back, though, Nyota noticed that @Amani didn't say anything just yet. Before the teen could aim to move back towards her "aunt" for comfort, a white lioness came her way, someone she could only believe to be @Faelyn. "Auntie Faelyn?" the girl giggled from beneath the kiss placed atop her head. Could she be anyone but the sister-in-law her mother spoke so highly of? Oh, and then when @Alvena called Roan "Dad," that made Nyota know exactly who the flop-eared girl was as well. "You must be Alvena!" the young girl practically accused as she bounced towards her older cousin. "Mama always said you were her favorite niece," she offered as a much-too-loud 'secret.' It wasn't polite to have favorites, for certainly Avana had other nieces, but she had hardly ever known any of them.

Another dark face showed up along with the pair of pale Hodaris, but Hero was easy enough to place as well. The mask, the black, the socks. He was another cousin, but when @Valka appeared, Nyota's mind went blank. No where within the stories and descriptions were pointed ears and stripes ever mentioned. Maybe she wasn't family then. Maybe she was just a curious member of the pride who came to greet them, but when she seemed to look to Faelyn with a question, the star-child was baffled. Only one way to figure this out then, as Nyota marched right up to her unknown cousin with a determined look on her face. "And who are you?"

@Valka came in like a miniature hurricane, staring almost owlishly at everyone in a way that Faelyn didn't understand the cause of. And then she questioned her and it all clicked, and Faelyn had to resist the urge to smack a paw to her face in her own stupidity. @Nyota broached the question and Faelyn couldn't help but smile even as she spoke.

Right, introductions are in order. Again. With how big the family was, they would never not be needed.

Everyone, this is Valka, she began, giving @Roan a sort of sheepish look because she supposed it was somewhat awkward to come home and find out your wife had adopted a child while you'd been gone, but in her defense they'd just come full circle from years ago when he'd brought Jai home. Valka, these are your grandparents, Dero and Hanneth, and of course my husband, Roan. She would be your cousin, she said, indicating @Nyota with a paw, and back there, your aunt. I'm sorry, I didn't catch your names. She'd missed the little introduction Roan had done for both Nyota and @Amani.

She supposed she could have introduced Roan to Valka as her father, but she remembered when she had been introduced to Jai, how he'd been allowed to choose whether he wanted to do so or not, and would offer the same consideration to Valka. It only seemed right.

Morrigan could not help but laugh as the faces piled up, so much new intermingling with the old as the Hodari kin mounted the Summit. She assured @Hero, @Faelyn, and @Roan first of all, "Of course they can all stay. They're family after all," she said with another smile to @Hanneth and bumping her skull in turn as the women greeted each other, "And I told you before Roan, no need to apologize. No one is beholden to this Mountain, you can all always stay for as little or as long as you please. We only ask for your loyalty while you are here and we can offer the same in return," she said sincerely as the introductions were made. "It is lovely to meet you all. My name is Morrigan Greyflood, High Sovereign here. I think you'll find we've plenty of space since the Oasis is back in the right paws." It was feeling a little empty of late, anyway, she told herself as she was caught up in the joyful reunion.

Glory and fame
Blood is our name
Pointed ears twitched and turned as she listened to everything, only lacing back ever so slightly at the sudden bold approach from her younger cousin. As confident as she could be typically, the amount of new faces was a little overwhelming and she was still struggling to make all the connections. "I...." For once there was no sign of the demanding behavior of the once-princess and the words seemed to be stuck in her throat. Well, not that her mind was actually attempting to form words in this moment.

But when @Faelyn took to introducing her to everyone, she actually got to her feet and shuffled closer to her, pale merle pelt pressing against soft white. And suddenly she wished she'd still be that tiny cub that could hide so easily. But being closer to her mother helped and even though she still felt overwhelmed, she squared her shoulders a little while her lilac gaze turned to the others who were now fully introduced to her as not just family but exactly who they were. "Hi," she eventually greeted @Hanneth and the others with a somewhat shy smile, though her lilac gaze lingered a little longer on @Roan. But eventually she did remember the question from @Nyota and looked at her again. "Mystery solved, I guess," the striped girl chuckled quietly. "Sounds like we're cousins."

Slowly she decided it wasn't as bad as it seemed and Amani moved forward to look at everyone and make sure that she knew who was who in her family here. Thank you @Morrigan ♔. She looked toward the leader who had accepted them all into her pride. She looked toward @Roan for a moment, the trust the leader had in him was clear. She looked toward @Faelyn, I am Amani. She offered a smile to them before looking at @Valka. This would be her niece. Amani was aware that in time, she would come to know all of them and she would be able to find her way through the family line without any issues but for the moment she felt dizzy by it all. She looked at @Nyota. Let's go play in the snow with them. She turned and took off without looking back to see if any of them were following her into the snowy pride.

Hanneth smiled at her family and friends. She was happy that they had made it here and would be able to be around those they cared about in their last days. Hanneth watched her daughter for a moment before nodding. Thank you for taking us in. I would be happy to help in any way that you need. She was sure that there was a medic already in the pride but Hanneth would still be happy to help with anything they needed. She head bumped Dero before she headed into the snowy lands to find them a den that would fit them and keep them warm.
