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!

12/15/2020 Eoin
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.

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.

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).

The Snow Dragon

He would chuckle at the thought of something he had grown so used to being new to another. "It's a nice new, trust me." He had once been the same way. Isolated in the world but since finding most - if not all - of his Tollaire family and even marrying Hecuba that had changed. He craved to be around familiar faces. Around family he cherished and protected. He was possessive like that. "The Tollaire have a tight bond with one another. We don't take to betrayal in our family very nicely." And though he would never betray his family, he wasn't sure if anyone else would and hopefully he wouldn't have to.

"It would seem so," Seraphiel agreed. At this point, he'd go for anything nice. This was a place of fresh starts for everyone, where they could all begin anew and forget whatever troubled them. After hearing what chaos had come between the two kings in the past, Seraphiel felt it was no doubt for the best for Drakon and his family that they could get away. Of course, it would have been better if such a thing had been unnecessary to begin with, but one couldn't always hope for that. Trouble was bound to find you at some point in your life, regardless of how hard you tried to avoid it.

"It's good that you look after each other so closely," he commented. Sure, betrayal hadn't been tolerated back home either, but it hadn't been due to any sort of familial bonding like Drakon was speaking of. Seraphiel knew enough to know the difference, though, and he much preferred the latter. They were blood, and they would protect each other. Simple as that. It was loyalty that came from the heart, not from fear or ruthlessness. "You all care for one another, it's only natural to take not threats to that structure lightly."

The Snow Dragon

It's how I was raised. Granted my mother raised me but I knew my place." And he did. Granted sometimes he felt like he shouldn't be where he was but there was something's stopping him and that was mostly his respect in his family and well, every thing else that had been engraved into his mind and should since the day he was born. "Were your family not like this?" He didn't know what it would be like if the Tollaire were not a close nit family. It would be tragic. Chaos. No one to control the dragon's that roamed the very ground everyone else walked on.

Seraphiel had to wonder what it was like to be raised by a mother. To even know who she was. He supposed he could have found out, but it hadn't mattered for the longest time, and when he did begin to question and wonder, he didn't see the point in trying to figure it out.

He chuckled at the question of his own family. "You couldn't even call us a family," he admitted. "Just a king who did what he wanted, took what he liked, and made us all go along with it. The strongest of us were the ones who carried out his orders, his enforcers I suppose. No one dared question or challenge him." He rolled massive shoulders in a shrug as he continued, "By the time I began to question him, the damage had already been done. I've done things I'm not proud of in the name of a man I no longer wish to follow. There's no way to atone for it, but I still try." He knew he'd never manage it, though.

It was clear to him that he had missed out on quite a bit, but that was okay. He'd learned many hard lessons, and they had shaped him into who he was now. At least he had learned and changed, and wasn't simply the bloodthirsty creature the king had wanted him to be.
