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!

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).

Lioness of Prideless
Played by witch

and he asked him, 'what is thy name?'
and he answered, saying, 'my name is legion, for we are many.'

ooc. leggie is hunting a wounded caribou. i figured there'd be caribou since this is a tundra biome, but if not i can change it to something else! also making it open for legion to be interrupted so everything is worded as attempts.

skull-crowned beast wanders the whitened lands with barely-leashed hostility, thick fur preventing the cold from pressing too deep into their bones. sharp fangs glisten, tangerine-and-viridescent gaze bright and cruel as miniature bodice floats on sturdy paws across the snowfall, following barely-there tracks. low rumble escapes, virulent impatience evident in every line of the flaming musculature - the demon has little time for games, and the quarry is trying what little patience the creature possesses. they require sustenance, and they know the rest of the horde will need it too once they arrive. the knowledge drives the demon forward despite their frustration, blood-born lines slinking low as they catch sight of their prey.

jaw slips, maw gaping in anticipation as they launch themselves up and out of the frigid sea which had helped hide them from view - aiming to land on their quarry's rear and dig in with all the strength in their body. elongated claws seek purchase in meaty hindquarters, attempting to bring down the already-wounded creature as quickly as possible. if they can get it on the ground, it will be much easier to kill. they've never hunted one of these creatures before, but prey is prey - and legion isn't one to look a gift meal in the mouth. throughout the attack, they are utterly silent, a disorienting and unnerving thing for the already disoriented and unnerved caribou beneath their claws - as far as it's aware, this assault has come out of nowhere, and the poor thing has no way to even identify what's trying to kill it.

long, thick fangs seek to sink into the caribou's back, over the lower spine - seeking to crush and paralyze the lower half of its body. a cruel, but in legion's mind, necessary action if they are to bring down this prey as quickly as possible. they aim to shred through the spine with as much efficiency as possible, razor fangs attempting to rip through muscle and bone. assuming they have success, they seek to scramble further up the caribou's body as it falls into the snow, attempting to sink their fangs into its throat and tear outwards. the resulting blood, should they be able to do this, sprays their bone-colored mask red and stains their petal muzzle and neck to match their pelt. victorious, should all this occur without interruption, they release a pleased rumble and begin cleaning the blood from their thick pelt.

after all, letting it sit in this cold would only make it more difficult to remove later.

Lion of Ithilien
Played by Naboo

Frigid winds spilled against his coat and reached down into his flesh in an unpleasant manner. Chills rose in the spots where the wind broke through his fur and once more he wondered why he had to come here. Of course the prey were plenty of prey here, and the herds of caribou had recently gone this way. Cloven hooves littered the ground of the open tundra where they had been gathered before their move this morning. He followed along the trails without duress, apart from a little biting cold he knew that his journey into the tundra would not be long lived this time. He would be here long enough to catch prey and bring something small back to the pride lands. Shoulders moved back and forth as his paws coordinated beneath, the cold crackling against his toes caws his claws to knead into the earth with each step forward, crimson gaze set upon the distance to watch for when the herd would come back into his line of sight.

When they came into sight the goliath lion vanished against the earth. His tall body, lengthy legs and slender frame moved towards the earth and the cold snow brushed against his chest. His paws moved beneath his frame swiftly and he circled around towards the edges, finding a copse to hide in and wait as he watched the herd. But it was not long before a commotion arose and bodies tumbled to the earth, a mighty lion bringing down a lone caribou that had wandered too far. His jaws tightened a little as the herd dispersed further, moving to where they could have a good line of sight and he knew that any attempt at grabbing one now would be futile.

Instead he moved towards the red creature that had felled the beast. His stride was calm and long, ears rotating forward atop his creamy skull and his chocolate mohawk standing rigid before collapsing loosely onto his shoulders and partway down his back. Calmly he came within about twenty feet before pausing, a small grin pulling his lips backwards and his eyes fell upon her, calm whiskey voice rising and a resounding tenor escaping as it crawled up his throat. "That was well played, you are skilled." The calm nature of the lion emanated from his body in a manner which left him quite exposed, he was a transparent creature, and perhaps they would see that. If they hadn't they may take his presence as an intrusion, but without giving in to the idle gnaws of hunger in his stomach he tipped his head to them. "Did you hunt just for yourself today?"
