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.

9/23/17 — Winter has come on Baraenor! this one is going to be a particularly difficult one.

Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded.

Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway!

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?

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.

IC Updates
11/05/18: — Noemi wins dominance over her sister Neomi! Evil-aligned characters may find their luck has drastically improved, and Baraenor may begin to see some very unusual offspring in the coming months - results of the spiritual unrest throughout the land. Speaking of spirits, the ghosts may begin to feel the pull of the Fields again as their time of freedom draws to a close. Sant Hem and Anima have dissolved, but three more have risen in their place, with Lochlan retaking Anima's old territory and both Stirling and Gabriel staking their own seperate claims in Naru Jungle.

09/25/18 — The goddesses continue to clash, and currently it is Noemi of the abyss with the most control - wielding her strength to influence the more unsavory characters of Baraenor. The upset of energies have unleashed the dearly departed freely into the land, and as the ghosts roam untethered, trouble brews between Imperio Sangre and Grimwood over the untimely demise of the young white tiger, Catherine. Just across the river, Empress Icefang of Luminosa sucessfully incapacitates Tyr, holding the former Sant Hem king in her territory while she decides his fate.

09/15/18 — As the land cools off, a new pride arises in the vale; Noctis led by King Agrippa. The scorned Andromède also takes Duskhollow from her former mate, renaming it to Athens. Baraenor's deities continue to plague the population with dreams and summons, and many have already gone to their respective strongholds with offerings to prove their loyalties. As the sisters grow stronger, what lies ahead when winter comes creeping in?

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.

Sassan had always been confident, but now she had size on her side to back up her haughtiness. Well, she certainly was still quite small compared to adults and most other predators, but she wasn’t just a little puff ball anymore. Her muscles were hardening, lengthening, and even a stripe of red mane was beginning to sprout atop her skull. It raced down the nape of her neck, and she was incredibly proud of it, for it was a genetic blessing from her mother. Like the stripes upon her shoulders, it marked her as the daughter of a powerful Empress, and she’d bear her exquisite looks with pride even upon this young swath of flesh.

But she knew she’d not be able to live up to her parent’s expectations simply by being. She needed to go out into the world and better herself, so that was exactly what she was doing. Strutting confidently, gaze shifting over the grasses of an unfamiliar land, the Princess approached a tree and took a moment to dig her claws into its bark and stretch. Then, she resumed a four-legged stance, and let her claws dig into the soil as she began to run. She wasn’t chasing anything, except for a more powerful version of herself. Limbs flexing beneath her, she ran hard and fast, until attempting to execute a sharp left turn. Most prey could turn and doge easily at any given moment, so she’d been told, and she wanted to practice her turns whilst building endurance. But her inexperienced body betrayed her, and she wiped out in a spray of dust and curses.

He was getting... old. It was a strange thing to think about how much time had passed since he'd first arrived in Imperio with Icefang, but now he had grown into an adolescent and could reasonably strike out on his own. Trouble was, he didn't see any reason to. This place was good enough to him, if only because most everyone left him alone and he liked that. It was why he was wandering around their territory aimlessly, debating whether or not he ought to see if he could be productive, when he heard something that sounded like a miniature elephant running through their lands.

Sassan probably didn't realize it, but she tried to turn right in front of Ourias who peered out from some nearby foliage, and he got a clear view of her spectacular failure. He snorted as he tried to bite back a laugh, sitting down while he got ahold of himself. Probably not a good idea to laugh in her face, because he knew how touchy she could be.

"Smooth, Princess," he said dryly a moment later, when he was sure he wouldn't start chuckling instead.

She came up spitting, the dirt on her tongue offering only a disgusting flavor. Dry and foul, quite like the sensation of her failure. Then she heard him, and cringed whilst turning to face the boy (who wasn’t really a boy anymore). Wasn’t it bad enough that she’d fallen? Now she had to deal with the fact that he’d seen her... Though at least it was only him, a lesser lifeform, and not one of her brother’s.

"Shut up!" she hissed, giving herself a shake to get rid of some of the dust that had worked its way into her pelt. "I won’t be mocked by the likes of you while I’m trying to better myself. You can either join me or sit there quietly like a good boy. Or go jump off a cliff!" That last offer was added on with a malicious grin, but the Princess didn’t care to carry on bickering with him. Instead, she turned away and started running again, forcing her muscles to pump hard as she raced away, practically daring him to try and catch her.

He snorted once more as he tried to suck in the rest of his laughter. Last time he'd ticked her off she'd attacked him, and he didn't think she was going to be any kinder this time around. "Got one for me?" he asked of her cliff comment, but she was already dashing off again. He was briefly tempted to let her run off, but he was bored and this was better than doing nothing. So, he sighed deeply and took off after her. It was obvious that she'd been practicing, and that his stride was shorter than hers, because it was somewhat difficult for him to even catch her let alone keep up. But, what he lacked in speed he hoped to make up for in endurance what with how much wandering around he did. He'd really put on muscle in his legs, which he hoped would serve him well in the future.

His incompetencezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (courtesy of kitten stepping on keyboard) knew no bounds, it seemed. Sassan only rolled her eyes at his question, not even bothering to look back. If he couldn’t find his own hill, she’d help him find one, then help push him off. Yet as she charged away she heard him follow, and knew he’d chosen the wisest option. Surprising, but pleasing. At least now she would have someone to practice some moves on.

It took him a while to catch up, but when he was roughly 2 yards behind her, Sassan one again attempted a precise turn. This time, though, she used her tail as a counterbalance to smooth the sudden movement, and the velocity did not throw her off her feet this time. Instead, she managed to whip around, and pushed off with her hind legs to try jumping at him as if he were prey. Her forelegs were spread wide and her fangs were angled to bite at the area throat under his jaw. She fully expected to gain a bruise in the process if they did collide, but no pain no gain!

All right, he should have expected that little move. She seemed to love to turn things on him, from what he'd seen last time, but when she spun on him he wasn't expecting it at all. He tried to slam on the brakes, sending dirt flying as his claws dug it up, and he tried to turn his head away from her onslaught. His fledgling mane could help take some of the damage as she caught to her left of what she'd intended to, but it still stung and he snarled irritably even as they continued to crash together.

Man, what was this chick's problem!?

"Thought you wanted to race," he ground out, reaching up with his left paw and hoping to push on her shoulder to get her to move. Could prove problematic if she clung on, but he hoped she just wanted to practice her pouncing. Why he was her preferred target he had no idea, but if he had to guess he'd say it was because he was an easy target. It wasn't like he was ever difficult to find, for all one had to do was wander the pride's territory until one found him.

Success! Sassan felt a bruise form at the collision point, but she tried not to care about the blunt pain, knowing it would only distract her from her goal. She growled while clutching him, and had a brief temptation to try and actually tear open his throat just so she could see how it would feel to really take down prey. But while violence was encouraged, she knew Imperian’s were valuable to her mother. So she decided not to risk upsetting her by damaging this peasant.

"Your mistake!" she laughed, releasing her hold as he pushed at her shoulder. Teeth clicked together as she half-heartedly snapped at his paw, and then pranced away a few feet. "Now, I want to race," she announced, realizing that a race didn’t sound half bad. Gesturing toward a tree with her snout, she said, "First one to that tree wins? And winner gets a prize! Like, oh, say, a favor from the other?" She felt confident she’d win, so didn’t mind betting. Now she just needed to make sure he would agree of his own will, lest she need force him.

Sure. His mistake. Actually, it was, because by this point he knew she liked to use him as live bait, or target practice, or however one wanted to define it. At least he was able to convince her that she wanted to do something else before she really decided to dig into him, because she definitely had him in a bad position.

Speaking of putting him in a bad position, now she wanted him to owe her a favor. Because, he knew that was how this was going to end up since she'd obviously been practicing and he hadn't. Even if he did win, what kind of favor would he possibly want from her? Nothing, that was what, unless it was to leave him alone one day. Well, might as well go along with it, because he didn't have anything better to do and he knew she wouldn't let him not do it anyway.

"Why not," he said flatly, immediately dropping into a ready stance. "One, two, three, go!" he said, hurling himself forward as soon as he said go or as soon as he saw her take off if she went early. He wouldn't put it past her, nor would he put it past her to try to trip him so he tried his best to stay away from her, presuming she didn't immediately outpace him.

Sassan held nothing back. Like her mother, she thrived on competition, and had no intention of letting this lesser soul get the better of her. Legs pumping hard, she was practically flying over the grasses, claws tearing at the earth with each brief moment of contact. Her focus remained upon the tree, pink eyes refusing to look elsewhere even for a second. She couldn’t be sure, but knew in her bones that he was falling behind. He had been foolish to agree to this competition!

Just as she figured, she was the first to reach the tree. She ran past it and laughed as she slowed, trotting around its base so she could see him. "Failure!" she scoffed, panting hard while still smiling. "Y’really thought you could beat me?"

He wasn't surprised that she beat him considering how much training she'd been doing. What he was surprised by was that she didn't try to sabatoge him in any way, like attempting to trip him. Maybe he'd been paying too much attention to that possibility and he'd lost the opportunity to take the win from her. Now he owed her something, and he couldn't imagine that would end well for him. He'd just have to wait and see, though he almost expected her to demand he repay her immediately.

"Couldn't know until we tried," he replied. He certainly hadn't expected things to go any differently considering his luck, but it would have been nice. Maybe next time, if there was a next time and he thought it a good idea to try again. Probably not. His interests lay in places besides running fast, even though he should have learned that considering he was puny compared to other males (and some females).

(Hope it's okay if I post in here :3)


Kinji was exploring his new home, padding along by himself for a while. He heard a bit of commotion from other kids and decided to head off in that direction. It'd be nice to meet some other cubs around his age, at the very least. As he finally arrived, Kinji instantly recognized the girl that had been so mean to him before. Briefly he contemplated going back, wussing out and just spending the day with his brother instead. Although that sounded tempting, Kinji wouldn't let her win like that. He had to be brave and just throw himself into the mix, otherwise she might get the idea that she can treat him any way she likes all the time. He wouldn't be cowed by her.

With the decision made, Kinji padded up to the two as they caught their breath.

"Sup guys? Playing tag or somethin'?"

He asked with a smile on his maw, looking hopefully between the two others.

Maybe he couldn't know, but she had. Her victory had been as easy to predict then as it was sweet to bask in now. And as an added bonus he now owed her a favor! But what should she ask for? Hmm, maybe she could make him do something embarrassing, or she could make him try to pick a fight with one of her brothers just so she could watch the show.

Before she could decide, though, the annoying boy came along and butted in. She gave him an unamused glance, and stretched out her muscles. "What's tag?" she inquired flatly, having never heard of the supposed game before. Whatever it was, she would doubtlessly be the best at it!

Ourias waited for her no doubt snide reply, but another target for her showed up before it could come. He'd never seen the young one before, but he had no doubt as to where he'd come from. Icefang truly had some kind of gift when it came to finding random cubs in the lands. There had to be way more young ones than adults in the pride now, he figured, though he had grown up enough to fend for himself now so perhaps he at least counted towards the latter instead of the former.

He nodded slightly by way of greeting, flicking an ear in curiosity at the mention of tag. He didn't know what it was either, though he didn't feel bad since Sassan clearly didn't either. Maybe she wasn't as smart as she liked to think she was. Or, perhaps it was something that no one in the pride knew about. Could be something that had come from... wherever this one had come from.

It probably had something to do with the fact that he'd brought up "playing" in front of it, Ourias thought. Playing wasn't a word in his vocabulary, and Sassan seemed to prefer the words "fighting" or "annoying". Not that he'd say that out loud around her if he wanted to keep his tongue.

Kinji stopped his approach and stood before the two of them about a full grown lion's length away. He kept his hopes up that this time things might be different than it had been the first time. He just knew, in order to avoid a re-run of the drama that struck before... he'd have to watch what he said.

He had assumed that the two would know what tag was, but as the mean girl looked at him with confusion... a mirror image to the look given to him by the older boy... Kinji began to think twice about what he should say tag was. No doubt... the girl would pervert the innocent game. The moment he explained it, the little ass would want to be 'it'. No doubt she'd use the opportunity to cut into someone's hide. Kinji had wised up to her... it didn't take him long.

"You don't know? Well, tag's kinda like... a game to prove how strong you are. You gotta go out, away from the safety of the pride borders and steal something from the strongest animal you can find out there. Then you run back here. That's why I thought you all were so out of breath... heh, I thought you'd gotten something good!"

The cub explained with a smile that could be interpreted as being excited for the game... but he was excited for another reason. His lie was perfect... like he had not skipped a beat. He sold his soul to her, hoping she'd buy it easily. Of course, he attempted to cater to her particular personality to make his odds better.

He looked between the two of them energetically.

Sassan flicked her tail whilst waiting for an answer, impatience growing quickly. She pressed her claws into the ground, almost ready to pounce onto the kid for making her wait even for a few seconds. But he started speaking and saved himself, allowing the girl to relax and become intrigued. A game of strength? How had she not heard of it before? But his mention of going out and away from Imperio’s safety made her skeptical. Mom had been quite firm in her instruction. Stay close. If she wasn’t gone long, though… maybe mom would never find out.

Glancing to Ourias, the Princess smirked. "We’ll play," she said, answering for the brown boy as was her right. Then she looked back to the younger kid, her smile growing devious. "But you go first. Show us how it’s done, since it’s your game."

The more he listened to Kinji's words the less he liked this idea. It probably would just bring trouble back to the pride, and he guessed none of the leaders would take that well if it happened. But, as he opened his mouth to say that, Sassan spoke first and said they'd go along with it. Did she not think she could get into trouble just like the rest of them? Perhaps not. Hmm, well they'd see about that.

That though alone was enough to get him to close his mouth again, glancing at the younger male to see if he'd agree to her terms. At least she was smart enough not to go first, though he was somewhat surprised she didn't want to. He figured she'd think herself too important to not be the first one. Wasn't like he'd have to go next though, because he'd ask her if she was afraid to go after the commoners. He wasn't going to let her get away with some kind of "saving the best for last" excuse either, oh no.

But, first they had to get the game started.
