Summer has finally arrived! The sun has melted the snows in the north and the southern territories are beginning to grow uncomfortably hot and dry. Pups are being born and life seems to finally be getting back to normal after the cure for the disease was found. But how long will it last?
The cure has been found! Wolves on Anikira are recovering from the disease and life is moving forward with the promise of pups in many packs. And yet darkness looms on the horizon, daring the creatures of Anikira to relax and allow themselves to get comfortable once more.
Acerbus is a very versatile region. It is warmer in the south where it borders the hotter portions of Anikira, but cooler up north where the mountains of Shyia provide a barrier. It is located against the western coast of the continent, and it is well populated with food critters amongst the trees.
Long and winding, the Shores of Lye are marked by their rocky shorelines and dark, gritty sand. Seals and sea lions frequent outcroppings that sprout up as far as a mile or more from the shoreline, while the tidepools scattered along the water's edge roil with life in the form of tiny crustaceans, anemonies, snails, small fish, and sea urchins. Years of weathering the ocean's tides have carved deep caves and hollows into the largest rock formations that dot the shoreline, providing plenty of hideaways for a wolf seeking to be alone for a while.
Just beyond the northern edge of the Lleingas Woods, nestled at the foot of the Tia'deli Mountains, sits Shayde Cave. The mouth of the cave is set higher than the floor of the cave and is relatively narrow, forcing wolves to enter one at a time. The interior, on the other hand, is wide and high-ceilinged with steep, relatively smooth walls covered in a thick carpet of moss. The position of the cave places its mouth directly in the path of the wind, creating a cool, breezy shelter during the summer months.
A mysterious fog embraces this dying forest destroyed by flames. The only animals that feel at home here are bats and other night-crawlers. Hunting is rough, but manageable. Eerie rock formations cast daunting shadows, giving the woods an unnerving presence. The spirits of hunted wolves linger, unable to rest in this wooded area.
Hidden deep within Lleingas Woods lies a lake shrouded in constant mist. It seems bottomless, water tinted gray. No animal has lived to reach its bottom, the lake over two hundred feet deep. Very few animals trust the purity of the water. A strange island rests in its center, dead trees and shriveled bushes adding to the eerie aura.
In an effort to provide the least restrictve roleplaying environment available, Anikira and their staff have moved the community to the Proboards paid forums. This forum allows unlimited writing freedom to members, as well as an ad-free environment and our ability to customize the forum and its ratings/content however we choose! In order to do so, we will require your help! There is a monthly cost associated with this service, and any and all donations toward this goal are appreciated. Please use the PayPal link below for all donations for Anikira maintenance and moving costs. We look forward to a roleplaying environment where the sky is the limit!
Please note the donation page is listed under Uru's name as it cannot be listed otherwise without a business account. All funds associated with this PayPal account will be used directly for the maintenance and costs of Anikira as our roleplaying forum.
Jaidah is one of the albinos on the site, a brand new character brought to life by a brand new player. It is interesting to see how such a pure looking being could be wrapped up in the angsty claws that is Irkalla! We will definitely be staying in-tune with this character to see just what heights Bird is able to take her!
