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!

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).

Lion of Prideless
Played by Twesh

There was no room to doubt Vermillion's feelings on the matter. If not for the more pressing matter of Brighid being missing it would have taken all of his power and self control to not press further into who this man was. His daughter; there'd be no lion or lioness even worthy of her in Vermillion's eyes. It was an oddly fortunate thing that her mother took matters into her own hands, that her fate was unknown. His anger was surmounted and almost entirely consumed by worry. "No- no." His voice was a firm refusal, his features a big rigid amongst his frown and all the other negative emotions he was dealing with as Wokabi told him the news. "You did exactly what you should have." Run- The thought of anyone, man or otherwise, touching his daughter. Looking at his daughter... it sent a shivering wave of protectiveness running into the deepest reaches of his body. Especially one Brighid had a bad feeling over. If something had happened to Bri, if this stranger had done something to her... all his fears realized... the lion's thoughts turned dark.

"Thank you Wokabi, my daughter." The word felt good coming between his lips. Her empassioned response gave Vermillion all the confidence and assurance he needed. Her want, he'd give her the world if he could. If it was a father she wanted, if she wanted him he'd move heaven and hell to keep it true. Even if his own thoughts and self doubt came into conflict.

Even as he reassured her that she had done what she was supposed to do, that she did right by obeying her mother. She knew she would never forgive herself if her Ma was injured or – She didnt even want to think it. Family was supposed to stick together and she had abandoned her mother in her hour of need. For the other male had been large, larger than her mother and her though he was probably around her Dads size. Head shook slightly, though she did not utter a word. He may say that she did the right thing, but for the past year she had done nothing but just that – run. She had not even tried to go back later and find her ma, for fear of the male getting wind of her and then her Mas order being all of naught. “We were supposed to stick together though.” She forces back the tears, refusing to let those that weld up in her eyes fall. After all, Ma had always told her that princesses dont cry, and she had always called her, her little princess. A silly nickname from her Ma, the kind that embarrassed her many times when her Ma had called her it. Now there was nothing more than she'd want than to hear those words once more.

As he thanks her for wanting him as her Da, she smiles softly. “You were always my Da, even if you were not there physically. You will always be my Da.” Even if he wasn't always at her side, she would not want anyone else as her Da. Not even if she had never found him again when asked she would have proudly replied she was his daughter. A yawn escaped her then and she smiled sheepishly at her Da. The travel through the lands and the emotions from finding her Da had zapped her energy and she knew she could use a nap. A chance to recharge from the exhaustion she felt deep in her bones. “I think I need a nap.” She said quietly, sheepishly. How embarrassing, needing a nap when she was basically a full-grown lioness.

"And it's not your fault you didn't." His chest rumbled with a growl, his voice deepening. "It's not your mother's fault either." His heart ached upon the word mother- his voice hitched a little and cracked amongst the middle of the sentence as his pain welled up and felt consuming. "It's that man-" That man, man, man. Good thing Bri was there because you certainly weren't. Vermillion hated whoever this was, and they surely deserved it but how much of his own guilt was being turned into fuel?

Mercifully Wokabi wretched him from the hurt he was feeling, out of the anger out right and into a much more soothing feeling. He thought it quite endearing- the sleepiness in her voice and the humbleness in seeking one of the most simple of life's pleasures. A nap. She thought herself silly and Vermillion instead saw his little girl, not all that grown up, and it brightened his heart a little. The dark lion smiled and felt a swelling of relief in his breast. He felt weak in the knees as he leaned over to thump her head with his muzzle and place a nuzzle along her crown. "Let's find a comfortable place to rest- and I'll be here when you wake." And forever after until life saw it fit to change that. Today however at least was promised to them and today he had a lot to make up for (if it was even possible to do so...).

@Wokabi / exit?

Despite his words that it was not her fault that she and her Ma were separated, she did not believe it. She wouldnt, not until they were reunited once again. If they were never reunited she would always blame herself, for fleeing... for leaving her mother behind to face whatever with Roman. While she did not believe it, she decided for now to appease her father. So she nodded her head slowly, having heard his growl and the pain in his voice. She knows though that her and her mother could have fought together, but she was only one... only still a babe basically, and he had a pride behind him. She knew deep down her Ma had done the right thing, but at what cost?

It seems though that he finds her sheepishness cute, as her actions bring forth a smile before he nuzzles the top of her head. Speaking of finding somewhere comfortable to rest, and that he'll be there when she wakes. Nodding her head she'd move to stand, to press her face into his mane once more before pulling back. “Sounds like a good idea.” She'd offer her own genuine smile, trusting his word that he'll be there when she wakes. She would follow him to the end of the world if he asked it of her.
