Happy 2021 to all! Big thank you for hanging out and being awesome for the first two-ish months of the site. It's been fun so far, looking forwards to a lot this year! If you haven't seen, after a delay, the last day of the advent can be claimed now (here). You have three choices for your last advent prize including a second chance at a creature pass. That's right we have creatures coming to Aesseldar now! Be sure to check the announcement for any rule clarifications if you're interested. Last big bit of news we do have our light layout "in the mist" ready to be used. There will still be tweaks and color changes coming in the next week or so by the fantastic dusk so don't be afraid if things look a little different.

Congratulations to Zay for winning the pride raffle with Runar! Welcome our new pride, Adamo Autumna! Don't forget to keep posting in the advent to claim your awesome prizes, and within the next few days you'll see some additional posts cropping up in the ooc areas. We'd love some feedback on the site and will be adding an area for feedback and suggestions. We will also be adding a thread to post all your open threads. Another fantastic surprise is that Koafox (some of you may know her as Miranda from other sites) has said we are welcome to use their table switcher plugin. As soon as I get the files we will be integrating that into the site for everyone to enjoy!

TWO news posts back to back my oh my stuff must be brewing! We wanted to let everyone know that the third pride slot has opened. Unlike the other slots we wanted to give everyone a chance to go for it as well, so we'll be raffling it! In order to enter the raffle please DM an admin or the Eoin account with your OOC and which character you'd like to enter the raffle with. The only requirement that has to be met is that the character must be 2 years of age or older (meaning that number of posts and feathers doesn't matter). So get your entries in, the more the merrier as we head into the new year! The other exciting news is that our neutral/lighter colored layout will be out by the end of the year, thanks to the lovely dusk!

Thank you so much everyone for a fantastic first month opening. We wanted to thank you all and let you know that we've decided to extend the grand opening bonuses for one more week, so you can bring in your first three characters free through 12/11! In other news our first contests have started and we couldn't be more excited! You may participate in the following, if you haven't already partaken: Advent Calendar, Superlatives, Advertising Contest, OTMs, and the Writing Contests. We'll be releasing another update soon with some super fun surprises, but some of Eoin's events have drawn to an end and it appears some new boards may start popping up! Expect to see more of Eoin, as well as some adjustment to the event threads, for some of the future boards as well!

As we bring another week to close we'd like to welcome everyone to participate in our first contest! The Advertising contest is up and provides some really great rewards, as well as participation rewards! Coming soon are the first set of OTMs and superlatives, a writing contest, a sneak peak at our more refined skills system, and a few other small updates. Happy weekend everyone!

Thank you everyone for having joined us so far for our site opening and help us grow our community. We have had so many wonderful suggestions, and while we are processing some things and working on the skills, we wanted to let you all know that the OTMs and superlatives are coming! Keep an eye out soon for those. Also it appears that Eoin has been wandering around Aesseldar and may be up to no good... best get checking on his apperances for some good old fashion fun, and maybe even a sweet surprise!

Welcome everyone to the grand opening of Aesseldar! We are excited to open our doors and build a community with all of you. As we being our journey together we would love you all to read through the grand opening thread, and remember that while we're transitioning into the start of this, we still have a few fantastic surprises coming. Our skill system is underway and we hope to have that out by the end of November, we would also love to have you all in the Discord with us and welcome any and all suggestions and feedback to help us improve the site! We have a number of things still to come, including a lighter colored layout, accessories in the shop, and would love to remind everyone that the top right series of three vertical dashes will open up the sidebar. In order to reference what IC month it is you will find the calendar link in the sidebar. Happy posting!

With three new terrains open and a third pride staking a claim once more, our mischievous deity Eoin appears to be up to no good again. The quake that cracked open the mountain and closed it once more was felt around the lands, and three new terrains popped open. Tryphosa Shore now has an Atoll sub-board, and there is a Desert and a Rift board. Several more will be coming... but first Eoin will make an impression.

11/17/2020 Eoin
The rainforest trembles, as if fighting back against those who dare to occupy it. The lands of Aesseldar are still only half-tamed, unfettered and unwilling to give way to any aspiring King, any growing empire. And just as quick as King Barnabas came to lay claim to it did it begin to push back, forcing his fledgling pride out with an unforgiving downpour, and a bitter resentment of the creatures that dwell within. With one pride felled, it leaves the opportunity for another to rise from the ashes.

11/4/2020 Eoin
It happened on a hot, humid night. No one there to witness it. Somewhere, surely, it could be heard. The start of a crack. The sound vibrating from mountain top to valley dips. It was a long and dreadful noise. Somewhere in the mountains, somehow, one of the peaks had collapsed. An impassible tower of sharpened points- gone. Snow, with the hidden rocks from the destruction, slid down the slopes that were formed by ages. A wave of white forced outward to cover all below. At first it is still much too dangerous to traverse. But with time the new ground settles and with it comes- a pass. On the other side awaits a land untouched by the curious paws. The lands of Aesseldar have been revealved and somewhere down below three pridelands sit empty, awaiting for eager travelers to start staking their claims. Please refer to the grand opening announcement for information on how to claim a pride slot and fully customize it, since there are some grand opening bonuses or exceptions that are not referenced in the guidebook! We would also love to let everyone know that any official in-character news that gets posted in this "in-character" section of the layout is going to be considered common knowledge for any character in-game. Consider it like an in-character bulletin board! We will keep it updated with relevant and applicable information and hope it helps inspire your plots.

Spring Y11
With spring the clouds begin to disperse and the warmer weather begins and new life blooms. With new lands having been discovered there is a plethora of places for the lions to explore and yet somehow that mischievous site deity never seems to stop bringing the surprises, some of which include occasional inclement weathers. Temps varying between 45°-80°F (7°-27°C).

Advent Calendar!

25 Days of Christmas

In the spirit of the holidays we are hosting our very first site advent calendar! The rules are super simple, starting December first all you have to do is post in this thread once a day and notify us that you are claiming the prize for that day (ex: Naboo, claiming day 1 advent). Be aware that once the day is over (following EST) the rewards for the prior day will no longer be claimable. Each day this thread will be updated with the next day's reward to keep it secret & exciting, just like opening a present!


As stated above all that's needed to claim a prize is to post here on the day for the prize you wish to claim. You don't have to post every single day to claim each prize (but who knows what might happen if you claim all 25?!), and we will use this as a log prior to adding every reward to your ooc account for easy recall.

Day 1: One free premium marking color for a character
Day 2: 20 Feathers
Day 3: Claim double feathers for one action (ex: finishing a thread, or completing a fight, or founding a pride, etc)
Day 4: One free premium marking color for a character
Day 5: Leadership Cooldown (Increase a cooldown by +15 days or activate randomly for 15 days of challenge immunity)
Day 6: Default Shorten (shorten the default timer on a challenge to 48 hrs, must be posted during first post of fight)
Day 7: 30 Feathers
Day 8: Rogue Cub Pass (Create a cub under six months of age)
Day 9: +5 to any one dice roll
Day 10: 40 Feathers
Day 11: One free breeding pass
Day 12: One free “sneak an entire thread” pass
Day 13: One free “escape” pass
Day 14: One free premium mutation
Day 15: One free immediate health restore (use of this restores 100% of health)
Day 16: Roll a d25 during one post in a fight
Day 17: One free premium pelt color
Day 18: One shop item up to 150 Feathers
Day 19: Double experience for one skill thread
Day 20: 60 Feathers
Day 21: One additional character (bypass post requirement for prior chars)(still have to pay for anything that is feathers like markings etc)
Day 22: 100 Feathers
Day 23: Add one cub free to any litter (even if it goes beyond litter maximum)
Day 24: Choose One! Please specify in your claiming post! May bring in a creature at no cost (with no post requirements on prior chars) or a Leadership pass (for claiming open slots only does not have to have any of the required followers)

DAY 25:
Thank you all for your amazing patience. Everyone will have a fair chance until midnight eastern time tomorrow (dec 31) to claim the day 25 of advent! I apologize for the delay as I suffered a setback in my health but I should be ok!
You may choose one of the following:

One: May bring in a creature for free with no prior post pre-requisites on characters.
Two: One free “special” pass for same-sex couples (only way for them to reproduce w/o a the need for a surrogate) (only one pass required per couple)
Three: Have your character automatically earn 2 levels on the soon to be released skills.
