7/10/18 — Our summer [mini-update] is now live! We've made some more tweaks to our PVP system as well as some extra encouragement for our players to make use of the Coliseum when writing their fight posts. A related guide is also in the works, so keep an eye out for that to be finished soon! The WIP can be found at the top of the Coliseum forum.

4/01/2018 — Hmm... Something is just [not quite right] around this place and you guys are writing some really weird stuff.

2/4/2018 — Year 4 is underway, as well as Baraenor's First Anniversary! We have a very special Character Appreciation this time around that lasts all through the month of February, and we need some help compliling pivotal threads for our Year 3 Synopsis.

1/20/18 — It's Winter of Year 3, and that means that the IC year is coming to a close! Expect Hall of Fame nominations to open soon, and be sure to read up on all of the user polls we're using to help continue to fine-tune the task system. We are always looking for more imput and suggestions from our playerbase!

12/28/17 — Baraenor enters Autumn of Year 3, and the next phase of the White Stag Event has begun! Be sure to sign up for a belated Christmas Gift, as well as enroll in Scribble Wars for next month for a chance to win some gems!

Creatures have also been allowed onto the site for a price unless you bring them during Character Appreciation Week, so feel free to ask for details if you need more information.

11/4-17 — Another month gone and Baraenor enters into Spring of Year three! We have a lot of contests coming up so keep an eye out for those - and don't forget that Christmas is just around the corner! Who knows what suprises will be in store for the players of Baraenor! Also look to see the ending of the BWP for our resident Witch Doctor - he's going to be picking up steam.

10/4/17 — Baraenor has officially entered its third IC year! Welcoming the new year with a harsh winter that will hopefully bring promise of a better spring. In other news, the third stage of the board wide plot has been temporarily suspended until such time we have a few people that have completed stage two. This is to give people time to catch up as well as keep all surprises of each stage given via in character interactions. We will let you know when the next stage is released. =)

9/23/17 — Winter has come on Baraenor! this one is going to be a particularly difficult one. Rogue's will receive -5% heath per IC Winter Month this go around instead of the normal -3% so it's recommended they find homes soon. Since nobody knew ahead of time, one OOC week will be given to find a home before December health deductions will be made by staff.

9/13/17 — The brand-new PvP system has been officially announced, and is now in effect across Baraenor. Please see this update for more information!

8/7/17 — An update has been posted here. If everyone could take the time to read over and input any ideas or opinions it would be greatly appreciated! Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded. Due to smaller numbers at the current time, we have opted to close two of the prides in order to try and fill the remaining ones a bit better. Kyvar will remain open and ready for reclaiming as it was one of the original prides on the forum.

7/31/17 — Cootie will be gone from August 3rd-18th, on a trip to Japan! Please direct any concerns to Jolee during this time, as she'll be back from her absence then to keep things up and running. Cootie will still try to pop in on Discord and the cbox to check on everyone, but otherwise expect kind of a lull while everyone's out traveling before school starts back for a lot of players. Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

7/24/17 — We are still accepting entires for our Flora and Fauna contest! This is a neat opportunity to contribute directly to the world of Baraenor, and earn something for your efforts!

7/12/17 — The Starfall Contest has ended now and the skies have started to return to normal.

We will be attempting to go through the site soon and seeing if anything could be improved upon so input is always appreciated.

6/27/17 — The Starfall Contest is quickly drawing to a close, but there's still time to participate and nifty prizes to be won!

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway! We're still working out some kinks and making new gameplay additions, the latest of which can be read about in this update. Staff auditions have also opened up, and interested parties can have a look here at the open positions and how to apply!

5/25/17 — Lots of updates and changes are coming to Baraenor! With the removal of the pride limit - how many lions will be searching to stake their claims on their own lands?

Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

02/26/17 — Things have been said, and heard! A new update comes on the horizon and with it comes a fighting system that we hope will keep the 'hands off' approach, while remaining fair to everyone involved. You can find it Here!

02/20/17 — To all our lovely members, we provide a brief update to let everyone know that we now have a special forum under Art Corner where we are housing all the wonderful editable line arts that we have been able to get with your gracious donations. These are available for member use only and password protected so if you are wishing to use them please PM Tabs or Jolee in order to get the password. Currently there is only an infant cub line art available, but more will be added as Ale-Tie completes them. =)

02/13/17 — It's been a week since our opening, and we've put out an Update!. In this update, we welcome a new staffer, and two new prides! Don't forget the current contests we have going on! Some will end coming up here soon.

If you happen to find any bugs in coding, please report them on this thread.
IC Updates
08/07/18 — Baraenor is in the middle of its usual summer heat wave, but that hasn't stopped the residents from trying to maintain their strongholds as resources begin to dwindle. Former Imperio empress (and heiress) Icefang has stepped out of her family's land to establish Luminosa across the river, while elsewhere Rothadt Erdő's king disappears and the pride dissolves. Otherwise it's business as usual, even if there's some strange goings-on down in the darkest recesses of the Phantom Bayou.

06/20/18 — Spring is here! The residents of Baraenor are a little worse for wear, but new legacies begin as Irkbaan Veistul establishes Rothadt Erdő along the eastern coast and Solomon Kivasante follows in his father's footsteps to revive Anima within the ethereal forest. But the land is never without its pockets of violence - Sant Hem's Tyr Rankeshson attempts to make Sundew pay for her insubordination while his heir Roanoke X'uekai is engaged in a death match against Grave Delekr.

05/06/18 — The skies begin to settle but down below the fights rage on, as new king Tyr Rankeshson of Sant Hem challenges Agnar's king Fenris Káruson to a death match. A few hopefuls have made their bids for leadership as well in the wake of Diello Lake's recent flooding and disbandment - the lioness Magdalene founds Izalith along the shores of Avaar Lagoon, the recently displaced Disa Kivasante vies for the throne of Imperio Sangre's Nikiri X'uekai and Kalios Grengar calls upon Duskhollow king Baldur Blackheart to defend his position.

04/10/18 — All hell breaks loose in Fessinger Grove as Diello king Zayn Kivasante leads a raid into Aerodeck's territory, with the recently-established Agnar's Empress Gunnr caught in the crossfire as the violence rapidly escalates. In the thick of the battle, Archduchess Sylvanas - one of Skol's own - turns on her king and challenges him for his crown. It seems the chaos has heralded the converging of the twin moons once again, as they draw ever closer to each other and cause all manner of astrological phenomena!

03/21/18 — With the increased availablity of resources, power begins to shift again, especially in Fessinger Grove - where Parvana re-takes Mirah Shores when Camilla disappears and Beetle Halfsbane departs from Diello Lake to stake her claim of Grimwood along the swamp's eastern edge. Another Diello lioness, Adélaide, also establishes Wintertide along the coast of Perisod Moor, and the rogue Nikiri X'uekai takes a portion of Norren Savanna after the scent markers of Caranox Plains are nowhere to be found.

03/07/18 — Spring is in the air, lifting some of the strains off of Baraenor's population. Food is becoming plentiful again, and with it the promise of a bit more peace among the prides. At least, in theory. Diello's resident tiger Luka attacks High King Skol of Aerodeck after some shady dealings involving one of her pridemates, Hillevi, who in turn makes an arrangement with Solomon in an effort to swear her loyalty. Within the territory of the Nomads itself, Morana issues a challenge against the now former heiress Buttermilk for her title - only for the cheetah to have disappeared, and for newcomer Sylvanas to answer in her place, while Heiress Absinthe of Itthon Nyers comes across Grave of Atral Fen in the bayou, and he ultimately kills her when she attacks him out of bloodlust.

02/18/18 — As the winter season rages on, Reshmi steps up to take over Adhina Cascade in the wake of Lennox's disappearance, renaming it Ashok Basin, while the young Skol Rankeshson makes a deal with the tiger Shrine in order to obtain control of the Aerodeck Nomads. Rostam Delekr takes Paradise, now Itthon Nyers, from Damien - and Nahlot Viitaas makes a bid for Mirah Shores, her challenge answered by current Empress Camilla Delekr.

02/04/18 — Nine prides - and one clan of creatures - have officially established themselves across Baraenor, making competition inevitable for land and resources. With well over twenty members a piece, Diello Lake and Ko'mox Fields have grown to megapride status and could certainly start putting strains on their neighbors. Things are already heating up in Fessinger Grove as new Empress Parvana of Mirah Shores sets her sights on driving the Aerodeck Nomads out of the swamp by raiding their territory!

01/28/18 — Four prides have dissolved under the pressure of the winter snows, paving the way for an ambitious few to build new empires in their wake. Deep in Naru Jungle, however, a battle rages as Solomon, the High King of Diello Lake, challenges Jorunn, Archduchess of Paradise to a death match!

01/20/18 — Eilif, King of Brogan Criostail, is challenged by one Priscilla Delekr for his crown after a disagreement over a young girl named Sakura! Elsewhere, the Empress and Emperor of Ko'mox Fields relocates their pride to the forest, and tensions rise in Starfall Crater over the fate of a trio of newborn cubs after their mother passes away from complications. In the wake of all this, the winter season makes itself known across Baraenor - promising to be one of the harshest yet.

01/04/18— With October comes changes! Damien defeats Varion as ruler of Elysian Summit and has some nefarious plans brewing. Zayn, King of Diello Lake, has managed to cling on to life after a grueling five day healing session by Disa. What does he do upon waking, however? Challenge Sant Hem for Jorunn! Winter is closing in on Baraenor, and with hardships on the way and prides growing more and more unsteady, where will the new season take us?

12/1/17 — As always, new prides appear while, sometimes simultaneously, existing prides vanish. Relations between these prides all lean toward alliances, which leads to a baby boom that is a mix of inter-pride passion and the Witch Doctor's influence. Meanwhile, strange occurrences begin to circulate through the rumor mill. Whispers of a white stag are abound, and folks are also beginning to speak of other creatures speaking lion-tongue. A leopard, a crocodile.. what else might Baraenor become a home for in the future?

11/4/17 — Much has happened in the last few months! The Witch Doctor continues his conquest to finish his goals.. Beware those of you who are of the dearly departed! In the meantime - multiple prides have fallen over the harsh winter months, leaving Baraenor down to six! With fewer prides, it means that there are alot of creatures looking to stake their own claims on the land. A few challenges are liable to crop up!

9/9/17 — The ocean recedes, forging a path to the mysterious island northeast of the mainland. However, it's an eerie locale, veiled by fog and ghostly voices that beckon the living to come and explore. Surely there's some correlation between it and the wandering souls that have been released from their bonds to the Memoire Fields, drifting across Baraenor as they did in life, searching for the reason behind their newfound freedom.

8/31/2017Anima Falls King Nevermore discovers the gruesome scene of his son's death and wife's capture, forcing him to abandon his territory and leave Baraenor in search of the culprit. Takira "Taske" Neron becomes the Empress of the forest in his stead, the shift in power quiet and undisturbed. On the opposite side of the map, Maranon Basin is founded in Mystall Ridge by Empress Devana and her mate, Helios, and becomes Baraenor's northernmost pride.

8/20/2017 — The unrelenting heat takes a toll on its inhabitants, but time marches on and not even the season can halt the rise and fall of monarchs across the land. When Kyvar Morass is left vacant once again, it is reclaimed by Livanna Varg, such that the jungle sees its first Empress in the wake of a harshly patriarchal past. Azil Hollow, having outlived its usefulness as a sanctuary in the mountains, is also abandoned and vanishes from the map - at least for now.

7/24/2017 — Baraenor is on the cusp of a heated summer, and with it the promise that the turmoil will ebb away a little - if only for now. Hard-pressed former queen Isadora takes over the abandoned Azil Hollow as its Empress and a young and amibitious Kaiden lays claim to the jungle of Kyvar Morass, while Mordred ascends the throne of Murkwood Grotto not long after his brother vanished. The survivors of the clash between the Delekr family and their outcasts are seeking vengeance, claiming the wives left behind as their own or holding them prisoner as punishment.

7/10/17 — In the wake of the strange astral phenomena, cubs are born with fur like the night sky in Anima Falls, and the tensions between Azil Hollow and Kyvar Morass finally erupt into a bloody battle on the grasslands. Four are killed - including Azil's king and one of his children - leaving the desolate Hollow in the paws of its young heir. Not long afterwards, Kyvar Morass and Murkwood Grotto both lose their kings. Will others take up their mantles, or are they destined to fade into obscurity?

6/27/17 — The moons grow closer and closer, one threatening to eclipse the other, the zenith of this strange phenomenon fast approaching as tensions run high across Baraenor. Skellryn Vale sees a new king not long after the death of its empress, when her heir Lilith is captured by Kyvar Morass and a lion named Artaxias claims the abandoned prideland. Another Delekr has taken over Murkwood Grotto in the wake of the prior king's disappearance, though the site of his claim is anything but peaceful, as the newly crowned Lennox immediately challenges for Rakel, a lioness of Mirah Shores, after a few heated words. Elsewhere, a strange pool charged with moonlight has revealed itself in Ethereal Forest - where did it come from, and what could it mean?

6/10/17 — A massive power shift consumes the land when Korrin is run from his territory and stripped of his name by his father Rhask and eldest brother Haru upon their arrival. Korrin and his loyalists flee to the mountains and establish Azil Hollow, while Haru himself takes the Kyvar Morass throne. Two other prides pop up elsewhere - Skellryn Vale and Navtiv Valley - while young Delekr Havok lays claim to the again abandoned Steppes, renaming it Murkwood Grotto and moving it to Ragefire Peaks. The heavens seem to be mimicking the chaos down below as the twin moons move ever closer together; stars are raining across the sky and a particularly large meteor has made landfall in Perisod Moor.

5/22/17 — When the King of Aellexus Steppes unexpectedly dies, the chance to claim the title emerges. Within minutes of the occurrence, a lion named Nevermore attempts to claim Ethereal Forest for his own. No more than 4 hours after, a lion named Vyper attempts to secure the savanna. Will these males go unchallenged, or will they be forced to fight for the title? Read more here and here.

5/12/17 — After the unexpected disbandment of Kyvar Morass, Korrin seeks to reclaim his title. Will he go unchallenged, or will blood be shed once more by the lions of the jungle? Read more here.

5/9/17 — True to what we've grown to expect, there is always something big going on in Mirah Shores. This time, it is a battle for the title of Queen. Hannibal, a fairly new addition to the pride, has her sights set on something big. After regaining her title so recently, Isadora loses it quicker than most of us expected. Newly crowned and ready to flaunt it, Hannibal goes so far as to invite the King's brother Barbas to her den for the night. Are more cubs on the horizon for this eclectic pride?

5/9/17 — Kirena of Mirah Shores, who just lost her only remaining cub (Sabryn) to a crocodile and has been outranked by a slave despite being the King's wife, is losing her mind. Not only does she find her assumed deceased son (Exodus) alive and well; she does not believe that he is actually her son. Sure that she would not be allowed to keep the boy due to feeling neglected, Kirena intends to alert Ezekael and leave it at that, though when Ezekael arrives, he solidifies Kirena's thoughts by calling for Isadora to care for the cub. Kirena, now feeling even further betrayed and unhinged, calls Isadora to a death match! Isadora, contrary to what we've seen of her battling in the past, goes for the kill without a second thought. Ezekael attempts to calm the situation, but it escalates regardless, one wife intent on killing another. Coincidentally enough, Graham from Iron Mountains has been loitering around the territory, even going so far as to having a private conversation with Kirena in an attempt to figure out what her turmoil is all about. The King of the Mountains leaps to the defense of Kirena, intent on turning the tables of the Death Match onto Isadora instead. Somehow Isadora manages to dodge Graham entirely, and the Death Match halts abruptly. Barbas slides in to seek compromise and diplomacy, but Graham has had enough with being nice to this pride that seems to be in shambles due to outside forces. He demands that Kirena be released to his care, and Ezekael gives her up like he'd never married her at all. Kirena flees in one direction, Chani the cub flees in another, and Graham leaves with the few members of his pride that have shown up.

5/9/17 — Just when you think things are settling down, two lionesses are killed in freak accidents caused by Mother Nature! Civali of Kyvar Morass is crushed beneath a fallen tree, leaving her husband Mordred and her son Dogo to grieve. Sabryn, a cub of Kirena's, of Mirah Shores is eaten alive by a massive crocodile who seems now to be a permanent fixture of Avaar Lagoon. Heartbreakingly enough, Kirena takes this loss extremely hard, having lost her son shortly after the litter was born. Shortly thereafter, Voluspa, current Queen, after giving birth and claiming Isadora's cubs as her own, travels to Iron Mountains in search of the King. Graham is quick to answer, and asks her what she might need. Suddenly we see Voluspa as never before, looking over her shoulder as though followed, crying out for help from the heterochromatic King of the Mountains. She tells him that Ezekael raped Isadora! Seeking justice, questioning his alliance to the Shores, Graham hustles his way to Fessinger Grove to find answers. Once there, with Ezekael and most of his pride (only one child is curious enough to check out the commotion) present, Graham explains his presence and calmly asks for the truth. Ezekael denounces Voluspa as Queen, stating it was always Isadora, but Voluspa, newly made slave, proves him wrong by using her Witch Doctor ability to summon an ancestral leader who will answer two questions truthfully. Graham breaks the alliance between Iron Mountains and Mirah Shores, leaving in disgust.

5/9/17 — Meanwhile, the new King of Iron Mountains has received the perfect initiation.. a challenge for his crown! Vyper, new to Baraenor but ambitious enough to rival all inhabitants, eventually succumbs to Graham, leaving the Mountain stronghold exactly as it was. On the northern side of the realm, more misfortune has befallen Mirah Shores, their Archduchess Tishala in particular. After happening upon a rogue lioness in Rysen Grasslands, the females are approached by Kyvar Morass' infamous grouch, Mordred. In his usual fashion, the red-maned male lays claim to the rogue immediately, and even Gersemi the Queen arrives to welcome their newest addition. At first it seems all will be well, for Tishala attempts to leave without a fight, but Mordred does the unthinkable and tries to claim her, despite her already belonging to Mirah Shores! Quick to the rescue is the King himself, charging in to protect his pride member. Absolute chaos erupts when Ezekael's brother Barbas, Heir to the throne, follows along and attempts to even the score by claiming Gersemi, who is unknowingly pregnant at this time. Korrin, her husband, descends on Barbas to protect Gersemi, calling for war between their prides in the process. One by one the crowd piles in to witness the majesty of Ezekael vs Mordred for Mirah Shores and Korrin vs Barbas for Gersemi. During this intense instance, Korrin is defeated by Barbas, making Gersemi a member of Mirah Shores, and while Korrin is down, his brother Gideon swoops in to claim the crown for Kyvar Morass'. Ezekael defeats Mordred in the end, leaving the prides to disperse to care for their wounded and process the state of hostility with their closest neighbor.

5/9/17 — Continuing on the same train of thought from our last update, we have surprising news from Mirah Shores. No sooner than Voluspa charging in for the kill did Isadora attempt to escape, only to be thwarted by her own brother-in-law, Barbas, and Voluspa herself. Ezekael is not present in this moment, when Voluspa strikes Isadora down to the rank of slave (a first in Baraenor's young life), for attempting to abort her litter. Gideon, who at this time was still Kyvar's sub-King, pays witness to all of the madness which unfolds here, giving him an intimate look into the workings of this oceanic pride.

04/5/17 — Much has happened since our last update! Voluspa has challenged Isadora to a death match after finding her attempting to abort her cubs, while also pregnant herself! Aellexus Steppe has a new King, Evander, and has started accepting members at a growing rate. It seems that testosterone has run rampant through the lands of Baraenor, especially Kyvar Morass. Korrin has a new Queen, who's filled to the brim with his young; he's also chased his brother, Gideon, from the land for choosing a woman over family! Both brothers have maimed one another, each party sporting a marred eye worthy of a patch. Iron Mountains has also had its fair share of drama, Graham meeting an old lover unexpectedly, and becoming the acting King of the mountains while Pallas journeys to find inner peace after delivering the morbid news of the death of Daphne Varg and encountering a cub in a similar situation. That is not all! Mother Nature has also run amok, dispersing singing creatures of all sorts to all the prides; what cooky things does the Mother have planned for us? Stay tuned and you just might find out.

03/19/17 — Pallas has become the new King of Iron Mountains! Meanwhile, Ezekael has found himself quite verulent and has started the process of siring multiple litters! The Varg are making themselves known as the family continues to grow, and with Daphne being returned to them - what dangers await the rest of the valley? More and more lions have stepped into the valley, and things are heating up across the board.

03/03/17 — Things are heating up as more and more lions filter into the lands of Baraenor! Hrungnir and Samuel clash once again over rulership of Aellexus Steppe, with the younger of the two once more emerging victorious. Tensions have run high between Mirah Shores and Kyvar Morass as their kings nearly come to blows over members. Whales have washed up on the beaches, drawing many lions from the edges to see what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, Apollyon has moved the pride once known as Qirin Glade to the Emerald Vale, giving rise to a new pride The Iron Mountains.

|| Summer | AUGUST Y5 ||
August | The dry season is in full swing, with the days at their longest and punctuated by the unforgiving summer heat. The vegetation is shriveling, the water sources are shrinking, and wandering around when the sun's at its highest point is a health risk at best and fatal at worst.

|| Hunting ||
AVERAGE | Most of the young animals have grown up quickly and aren't as vulnerable, and grazing activity has been relegated to evening and early morning hours. Herds gather in droves around the rivers and lakes, and while hunting itself is dangerous in these temperatures, there are opportunities in the injured and elderly that succumb to the heat.

Hestia had said that she would handle Keela herself... but Zayn wasn't pleased with that answer. So - he intended to take matters into his own hands........err.. paws. With Taera flying overhead, the pair made the trip across the lands - having to stop along the way for water and to rest.. but he eventually made it to the forest. It was here that Taera banked away - heading towards the open air above Ethereal, preferring to remain where she could spread her wings and not be pressed by trees. So the saber moved inwards, keeping his form crouched as he went - working his way through the glowing foliage. Thankfully - unlike his brother, his markings weren't glowing.

Zayn came to the borders of K'omox and bared his fangs in distaste at the scents that washed through his memory. Instead, he made his way across the borders, keeping his nose to the ground and scenting the air - hunting for their cache. The beast found the cache without much trouble, and with a feral grin, the saber helped himself. He fixed his jaws around the body of a rather large fish and found himself to enjoy the taste. With his prize in ...mouth, the beast moved away, heading back towards the borders of the prideland. While a fish wasn't entirely enough to make up for what they had done to Hestia - it was a start

Prone to the scent of his own territory, it was not a surprise that the steel knight picked up on the scent of the intruder. The dishonorable beast dared to steal from his caches, and Indigo would not allow him to get away without repercussions. His nostrils flared, fur rising as he inhaled the unsettling tinge upon the wind. He would raze their stronghold and ensure each one of them suffered their punishment, for their evil presence was a blight upon the lands that could no longer be ignored.

Setting his pace at a run, he intended to cut the interloper off before he reached the border, relying predominantly upon his acute sense of smell to locate the dark behemoth. A glint of white fangs was enough to confirm his suspicions. The sabre toothed devil was unmistakable, and since the day he had taken Hestia, he had vowed to become stronger, capable of delivering justice with an iron fist.

"Stand down!" He bellowed, lips lifting in a vicious snarl, the thunder of his threat rumbling through the trees. Though smaller than the prehistoric knave, he was far from insignificant. With his ears pinned back, chest swollen, and stance firmly squared, he certainly appeared to be an immovable brick. Without stopping, his extended claws tearing up the ground upon which he trod, he set up his defense. Muscles tensed, he moved with his stomach low, predatory in stance, limbs bent at the ready to strike or pounce. His shaggy head was lowered in alignment with his spine, shoulders rolles forward slightly to push excess skin over his nape while his chin tucked over his throat. Narrowed eyes ablaze with rage, he lashed his tail lowly as he launched himself forward, intending to approach Zayn at a 45-degree angle to the right – diagonal to the intruder's left shoulder.

At this point, he assumed that it would be the thick fangs he would have to worry about, so he would do everything in his power to avoid those sabre teeth. They were meant for pinning prey and strangling, and he knew first hand the damage that could be done should it press against a sensitive bundle of nerves. Using part of his chest and the front of his right shoulder, Indigo attempted to ram against Zayn just below the front of his left shoulder. Lifting his front left leg, keeping it fairly close to his body, Indigo then tried to deeply slash his claws from the left side of Zayn's cheek down to his mouth. His open maw sought a mouthful of mane as close as possible to the junction between the left side of of Zayn's head and neck in order to try and obtain a hold. He would have retribution!

Zayn didn't think much of having to watch his back as he left the pridelands. After all - he was focusing on one thing - returning with his fish. However, it was the ca ll that caught his attenton first, rather than the sound or smell of the other lion. Perhaps that was something he would need to learn to look out for in the future. Zayn snarled, turning at the shouted warning, though warning it was, he had barely had time to get turned, ears snapping to his skull and amethyst gaze narrowing.. His fish, something about fifty pounds or so, was clamped tightly between his jaws. He didn't have much time to react, but when he did - it was to swing his body towards his left to try to meet Indigo head on.

In the process, he tried to jerk his head - and subsequently - his Fishbat™ Mark I was slung towards the left side of Indigo's face with as much power as he could muster, though he would release it after slinging, connection or not to free up his jaws. The charging male collided his right shoulder into the center of the sabers chest, leaving a mild bruise blossoming across his breast. (-3%). The saber shifted his weight - his hind limbs bunching as he tried to lift his front right leg -- Indigo's left claws scored into his right leg as he attempted to lift it, leaving two inch gouges across the darkened fur. (-2%).

Claws too long to properly sheath splayed as Zayn attempted to dig his talons into the right inner side of Indigo's front left leg. He was trying to grapple his claws into the other lions leg to try and dig deep into muscle and tendon. burly shoulders were bunched forward, as much as could be done considering he had just used his stolen fish as a bat..

No matter what the outcome of their fight was, Indigo was determined to prove a point; he would fight tooth and claw for K’omox, for the things that he believed in. Against all evils and wretchedness, he would take a stand, and reign justice down upon the naysayers like a king who wielded Excalibur, or the indestructible Mjolnir. He could be beaten and broken down, but no one would deny his resolution; he would prove to the spirits and this heathen that he would fight with all he had.

His noble intentions were somewhat undermined by the fact that Zayn had decided to use a fucking huge fish as a club. This was not some sad little trout one of the cubs had reeled in from the river, but a saltwater brute that likely Indigo himself had hunted down days before and left to ferment in the food cache. His disbelief was vocalized in an utterly animalistic roar of outrage as the rotted thing broke across his head, spilling guts and splintering bones in a glorious, gory, pinata-like explosion. It caused him to stagger two steps to his right as he squinted against the mushy debris, slick scales, and thin bones that were sent flying everywhere, head forced to move with the direction of the impact. Still he managed to keep his chin tucked, ears flicking sharply against his skull to try and shake off the stinky fish flesh. Perhaps he would look upon this situation many years into the future, find it humorous, and set up similar party games for his children and grandchildren. In the present, however, Indigo was focused on the fact that some youth had bitch slapped him with a fish he caught.

Considering it had mostly deteriorated upon contact with Indigo, the fish was not necessarily an effective weapon, though it did give Indigo pause. In all his years of training, he had never expected anyone to waste food so foolishly, but had also never prepared to react to such a situation. His surprise was minute in comparison to the anger that welled within his chest. Out of the corner of his narrowed eyes, he saw a shift in his opponent’s movements, and registered Zayn’s limb that reached forward to grapple his own front left leg. Once again ensuring that his large was dropped low, the emperor swung his hips to the right to turn his body, quickly stepping aside with all four paws - toes gripping the ground and claws pricking the dirt - while his tail, like a ribbon, followed through with the motion while remaining trailed near the hocks. He intended to set himself up at a right angle to Zayn, his neck drawing into his body, muzzle pointed in the direction of the young lion’s left shoulder, where he felt a window of opportunity had presented itself.

Despite feeling a burning sensation where claws cut mildly deep along the outside his left front leg - above the elbow but below the shoulder, three lines extending nearly three inches long - he was not so impaired that he could not return the attack. Raising his front right paw off the ground, he reached over towards Zayn’s left armpit in attempt to savagely tear profoundly into the teres major (a muscle that assists with movement of the limb) and cut through its length of just a few inches. Simultaneously, he used his parted jaws and once again attempted to grab hold of the flesh and mane on the outer left side of his throat, just beneath where his head attached to his neck, so that he could continue to keep those sabre fangs at bay.

His rather unorthodox attack at least seemed to work, and Indigo's head was slung to the right. The smell of exploded fish-gut was unappetizing, but it was broken up by the H I L L A R I O U S image that the visage of the Fields Emperor painted.. with his new makeup. He should start doing youtube tutorials, the ladies would love it. Ears remained tucked to his skull as Indigo recovered quickly enough that he crab-walked to the side before Zayn's claws found their mark upon the beasts flesh. At least where he had been aiming. He did feel the skin tear beneath his claws as they sank into the lions leg. As Indigo was moving, so to, was the saber. He shifted his hips to his right - to try to keep him the best he could at a front on - face-to-face position with Indigo. Zayn had far fewer steps he had to make to keep that position as he was quite a bit shorter than the Komox King.

Indigo's front right leg stretched outwards, and Zayn lunged forward, jaws parting as his amethyst gaze narrowed upon his target. The saber attempted to move in and under Indigo's attacking head, aware that he had a few inches on Indigo, so he had to crouch just slightly to manage, though the height different was at their shoulders and not so much where their heads were. He felt the sharp sting of the beasts jaws in the upper right part of his nape - grasping burgundy hair as well as some of the fatty flesh that protected his neck from just such attacks. Indigo's fangs left punctures in his scruff - roughly half an inch deep (-3%). The claws that Indigo lunged his way clipped the lower part of his chin leaving minor cuts (-2%), as the sabers jaws aimed right for the meaty part of Indigos leg.

Six inch fangs aimed to sink deep into Indigo's right leg - aiming for the juncture of his elbow where he could attempt to crunch those deadly canines through the beasts elbow joint. He might not be out to kill him - just yet.. but he was certainly intending to leave the male crippled in the process. His front right leg would lift - balancing on his left fore and hind limbs, he would attempt to reach out to rake down upon Indigo's front left leg. He was trying to sink those wickedly curved talons into Indigo's flesh - to worsen the injury he had caused before.

Warning 1 of 3 for Indigo
As stated on the Fighting Information page of our Guidebook, each use of God-modding or Powerplay in a fight post will result in one strike against the combatant seen displaying it. Once the combatant displays three strikes in total during a fight, the fight will default in favor of their opponent.

This is strike 1 out of 3 for Indigo for displaying God-modding/Power-Playing.

Ways in which God-modding/Power-Playing has been displayed:
  • Indigo is ramming Zayn - and in the process, he attempts to claw Zayns face. In order to reach the face of his opponent, Indigo would need to reach upwards a little in order to do so, which would negate much of his charging momentum.
    • It would have been better to attack something on the underside or side of Zayn to not negate the momentum of his charge.

Ways in which God-modding/Power-Playing has been displayed:
  • No mention of being pushed back by Indigo's charge was made.Even with the weight difference, Indigo should still have shoved Zayn back a little bit - yet there was no mention made.


    -2% has been taken from Zayn for damage that should have been taken from the impact.

This is strike 2 out of 3 for Zayn for displaying God-modding/Power-Playing.

Ways in which God-modding/Power-Playing has been displayed:
  • The attack using the fish was unrealisticZayn would be unable to physically lift and swing a fish of that size (50 pounds) without significant strain or injury to himself.

This is strike 3 out of 3 for Zayn for displaying God-modding/Power-Playing.

Ways in which God-modding/Power-Playing has been displayed:
  • The attack made on Indigo's left leg was unrealistic.In order to attack the underside of Indigo's left leg, Zayn would have had to wrap his paw around the back of his opponents leg to reach it.
    • He would have been able to realistically attack either left or right side or front of his opponents leg.


Defaulted!

This fight has been defaulted.

Due to [Zayn] collecting 3 GM counts against him before [Indigo] and before the end of the fight, this fight is over.

As Zayn has lost, Indigo may choose to exact the following (He may opt for less, or none at all) but no more than :

Tear to the muscle of his left foreleg.
    Causing restricted movement and inability to lift it above his chest as well as random numbness to the shoulder area of the limb. A pronounced limp will also exist until such a time as the injury is healed.

As Indigo moved, so did his opponent, and they swiftly became entwined in a deadly dance. Adrenaline coursed through his veins, the sound of his own blood pounding in his ears. He preferred to keep his eyes on the front of the sabre-toothed cat, always cautious of the thick teeth that could cause ample damage; perfect for puncturing through the soft skin of the belly or throat and leaving wounds far too gaping to successfully close. Therefore, Indigo took great caution to ensure that only the thick, well muscled parts of his body could be reached by the beast’s gaping jaws. While he had the disadvantage of weight and height, he could also fling his body around in a more effective manner.

Keen glare observed his opponent turning and ducking, and was able to adjust his own movement accordingly, accommodating the slightest changes during their battle. What felt like hours slowed down was, in reality, only a few minutes long at most. Therefore, everything he did had to count for something. He could not let Keela or K’omox down. The very thought of failure made him bellow out, channeling all his fears, worry, and anger into a pure concentration of power. A rush of air and sound left his parted jaws as he pulled away slightly, stepping back just enough to deliver a blow that would tear the muscle of Zayn’s left terpes major. "Leave. Go back to where you came from." He snarled, snapping his teeth close to the open wound.

Cue glaring and heavy mouth breathing.

(For all intents and purposes, this is basically just a continuation from the last post)

The pain was unreal - and Zayn snarled - fangs baring as he glared at Indigo with a fire blazing behind those purple orbs. The beast knew instinctively that he should leave - but something also broke as it rode the tide of rage. He'd actually spared this bastard before.. An action that he thoroughly regretted to this very day.

However- Zayn knew that if he continued on now, he would fair poorly, and he would need to return home to recuperate. The saber pulled away from Indigo - the left side of his leg bleeding freely, but his stance was tall - even if putting weight on that limb was painful. This wasn't over. He turned - stalking away from Indigo and leaving this forest behind him.

-Exit attempt-

They had lost a fish and gained an enemy. This was not how Indigo wanted to start the season, but alas, there was nothing more that could be done. He could not come up with his own idea on how to salvage the situation, for it seemed unlikely that these young brutes would listen to reason. There was nothing that he could give to them, and nothing that he could do to stop the impeding assault on their pride. Waiting, he watched as Zayn left, slowly trailing behind to ensure that he made it out well beyond the forest, before turning around and returning to his home to summon his lions together.
