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!

12/1/17 — Summer of Year 3 has steam-rolled its way into existence. As always, contests are being held, links to which can be found riiiiight below these updates.

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!

Players may enter with as many characters as they want, so don't forget to register for the chance at some very nice rewards!

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! We've seen several new faces around lately, so thank you to everyone that's been posting our advertisments. Keep it up so we can bring even more new players into our community!

7/12/17 — The Starfall Contest has ended now and the skies have started to return to normal. Congratulations to everyone who won in the OOC or IC contest. =) In other news, Tabs has opted to take a break from Adminship for a little while and relax so if you have any questions feel free to inquire with Jolee or any of the other staff members as well as posting inquiries in the Soundboard forum for questions and suggestions. 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! The guidebook has been updated with all of the newest changes, as well as a few tweaks for clarity after feedback from the playerbase and other observations. You can read more about those here!

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? With the addition of Woman Empowerment ladies of Baraenor have just a little more umph.. But they still have to work for it! Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

04/24/17 — There have been several updates made recently, highlighting tweaks in the fighting system, a task overhaul, gridlines on the map and much more!

03/19/17 — As we move into our third month of being open, we see some accounts going inactive. Make sure that you guys are posting at least once a month to keep characters from falling inactive! And remember, if a character under 1 year goes inactive they will be considered deceased. Keep up the posts, guys!

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.

02/07/17 — We have a couple of contests going on right now, Advertising contest which has a few of our breed only (And non purchaseable) pelt colors as prizes. Skinning contest with Gems as prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for a Valentines day Scavenger hunt as well! In the meantime, we'd like to give a HUGE thank you to both Pessy and Vix for donating towards making Baraenor!

If you happen to find any bugs in coding, please report them on this thread.
IC Updates
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.

She was farther from home than she’d ever been, and her body was larger than it had ever been. The demon-spawn had outgrown her baby muscles and fluffy pelt. Now, lean muscles corded sturdy bones, and her pelt was sleek and silky.

Large paws punished the earth as she cut a swath through the green grasses of the new environment, a confident smirk upon her lips. She was training in the darkness, owning the night as the moon shined over head. Plumes of breath escaped her maw as she panted, sprinting and turning tightly to execute difficult maneuvers, practice which would aid future hunts. But she’d been at it for quite some time, and exhaustion was beginning to weigh heavily upon her.

So she slowed and stopped, and flopped down in the grass, twisting onto her back so she could look up at the sky. The night was chilly, but she was hot with exertion, and enjoyed the sensation of heat escaping from her belly as she presented it to the air.

Kinji BARELY fails to sneak --> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/4..._sneak.PNG


Kinji padded though the grasses, following Sassan out of pure curiosity. He had managed to stay far enough back that she had not even known he was back there... Okay... he didn't manage anything, he fell embarrassingly behind. It was no secret that his sister trained vigoriously day to day. For what, Kinji couldn't say... but he figured it was to be able to wallop all her siblings if they decided to contest her in any way.

Now the girl rested, and Kinji was able to catch up to her. Once she was in sight, he decided to practice his sneaking. Mother took pride in his sneaky skill sets... he should practice them more often. He ducked down, trying to hide in the grasses and use the darkness of night to camouflage himself. As he moved along, almost as if he were stalking her, Kinji stepped on the abandoned exoskeleton of some giant bug! The CRUNCH could be heard for miles... well, at least that's what it sounded like to him. He clenched his teeth, standing stock still... maybe she still wouldn't see him... maybe.

Sassan was enjoying the quiet. The way the cool breeze gently rustled the grasses around her and the silent fasion in which the clouds moved above as the soft thudding of her heart dominated all sound. It was a perfect moment, until a noise disturbed it.

Instantly she whirled to her feet and turned to face the area where the crunching had originated. Her fangs were bared and ears back, posture tense and ready to face whatever foe had made the mistake of approaching her. But as the form came into focus, she calmed herself, and allowed her aggression to melt away. "Oh, hey you," she greeted casually, smiling at the younger Imperian as if their first meeting had not resulted in blood shed. "Mum know you're way out here?" she supposed it would be up to her to defend him now if danger came. It would be expected. But what would dare test it's strength against her?

He had braced for her weight to come crashing into him... anticipating her to pounce and try to beat him up too... but it never came. Instead he heard her snarl, whirling around with a start. He had managed to startle her, at the very least... and once she realized who he was, the angry show dissipated. Strange. Not even a snarky remark! Just a casual... almost friendly greeting escaped her lips then. His ears perked up, his gaze lifting and his clenched jaw relaxing as he looked up at her. She was as old as Koemi now... and she looked it, too. She asked if Nikiri knew if he was out here and the young boy simply shrugged, eye still betraying his confusion at her unusual greeting.

"Mom doesn't care if I leave the borders..."

Perhaps it was because he wasn't one of her biological children, perhaps it was because she had faith in his sneaking skills... perhaps it was because she simply didn't care. Whatever the reason, he never felt the need to really ask permission before going around and doing things outside of the Imperio borders.

"Just wanted to see what you were up to. Heh... maybe I was hoping you were coming out to hunt. I like getting fresh meat when mom hunts."

He tells her, his tone joking as he gave her a weary smile in return. He was cautious. The last time he had tried to joke with her... things didn't end up too well. Especially when food had been involved.

He was perplexed by her. She could read it on his one-eyed face, and supposed it was a natural response. Violence was acceptable in her mind, but for him he might not be able to grasp the natural place it ruled. Not everyone could separate it from one situation to the next, but Sasan could. Mother had taught her to use it as a weapon, to wield and use it when necessary. Before, it had seemed necessary. But now, it was not. Now, she could accept him. But could he accept her?

"Mm, I suppose she feels you are ready to face the hazards out here. Is that how you feel?" she asked, smirking and tilting her skull slightly as she picked up her paws to move closer to him.

Her nose dipped down slightly to sniff at him as the boy explained his reasons for appearing. Perhaps the proximity would unsettle him, but she really didn’t care. She was simply interested in sampling his smell, a primal drive born of the pride bond they shared. "Oh? I thought maybe you were here to play tag. We could, if you want, since we didn’t get around to it before." The smile upon her lips grew and flashed. She now held an advantage over him, which would make the game all the more fun in her opinion.

OOC: I would have replied to this immediately, but half way though it got deleted and I rage quit XD Sorry for the delay!
Kinji fails to find anything cool -->https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/4...ji_tag.PNG


Kinji raised both brows as Sassan mused over mother's logic and reasoning for allowing Kinji to wander where he pleased. Perhaps it really WAS that she felt Kinji was ready. That had been one reason he had been toying with... and Kinji knew Sassan was close to mother also. Perhaps it was the most plausible reason... after all, Sassan didn't give out compliments. Kinji felt a small swell of pride as Sassan asked him if he also felt he was ready to face the outside world. Without hesitation, Kinji shrugged as though it were no big deal and nodded once, a wide smile on his face.

"Yeah, I mean... I'm sure I could hold my own."

Sassan then bent down to sniff at him... and he tilted his head in confusion. It wasn't as though he smelled any different than her... by Imperio standards at least. The only difference was that he smelled like, well, him. And she smelled like her. How odd... as as she moved her muzzle closer to him, Kinji leaned his weight back... body language telling her that this was not a normal thing to do. Especially not between pride-mates, and SIBLINGS much less!

She then lightened up on the sniffing, instead changing the subject to the game he had once invented. Tag... oh yeah. He couldn't remember why he had not gotten around to playing that game with her... but this time it seemed unavoidable. Of course... he was almost a year now... and she was AT LEAST a year. Perhaps it would be more interesting now anyway.

"OH, sure. Yeah, lets play that! We could bring whatever we catch back to the pride to eat."

Kinji agreed, giving her a smile of the same confidence he had worn previously... but behind his one living eye, there was a hint of doubt. Koemi was always warning him about the creatures that lurked beyond the borders. Even so, every time Kinji ventured away, he never ran into such beasts... at least not the dangerous ones. Perhaps it would be fine.

"I'll start."

He says, bounding past Sassan in search of something he could wrestle into submission. His nose searched the scents, his eye scanned the landscape... but even as he wandered throughout the immediate area, there were no clues that would suggest that anything was nearby.

Ooc; lol np!

For a one-eyed little squirt, Kinji pulled off confidence rather well. His response made her grin. "I’m sure," she chuckled. Then he was leaning away from her sniffing advance, and she blinked her big pink eyes as her muscles grew still. It seemed she had found some boundary he was eager to maintain, but she was tempted to push further.

Instead, she brought up the game, which he readily agreed to play, if only because his thoughts were heavily dominated by hunger. The glint of doubt in his singular orb, however, was not only caught by Sassan, but latched onto. Like a huntress who had just spied a wounded creature, she locked onto the uncertainty, watching with intense interest to see if it would rule him. To her pleasure, it did not, and he volunteered to start.

Red fringe dancing in the breeze, she nodded and turned as he bounded past her. Seeing such enthusiasm enthused her, and she ran after him, eager to begin this risky game. But when he didn’t find anything she let her long legs carry herself past him, nose lifted to heights he was not capable of to test the air.

She smelled it a split second before she heard it. A hiss, low and warning. It made her freeze and peer hard into the grasses in front of her. She could just barely make it out, but there could be no denying what they had stumbled upon. A juvenile leopard! It probably had only recently left its mother, and the little fool didn’t have the sense to avoid lions. It was supposed to be Kinji’s turn, but Sassan couldn’t help but want to tear into the smaller feline! So she let a savage snarl rip free of her throat and jumped forward, attempting to land on the leopard and use her claws to pin it to the ground.

In Kinji's failure to find anything of real interest, Sassan was quick to pass him up in search for the limelight. She lifted her muzzle to the air, testing it's taste from an altitude Kinji could not yet reach. Suddenly, as they moved along in the grasses, a low... deep grumble sounded from nowhere! Kinji froze at the same time Sassan did, recognizing just how dangerous this situation had become. Sassan spotted the creature long before Kinji did, and instead of attempting any kind of understanding with it, she leapt straight into battle! Leopards were feline! They weren't hunting their own kind! What was Sassan thinking! Although... a part of him wanted to believe that she had jumped into battle to protect him from the impending dangers of a pissed off leopard.

Whatever the reason, Kinji had made a promise to himself that he would never let someone else fight his battles for him. He had felt so bad with the outcome of Koemi and Sassan's fight... and although he had not completely forgiven her, and still refused to call her his sister, he understood that he would need to help her. He didn't want to see her get horribly maimed or even killed because of his game! He would feel just as bad as he had before.

He was scared, but his age and coresponding experience in such a rough-and-tumble pride had helped him learn to quell such feelings of fear and doubt in himself. Action was the only thing that was acceptable, the only thing that could make a difference! Kinji dug his claws into the dirt and also lunged at the creature, coming at it from the left side. In his attack, Kinji attempted to latch all his fore-claws firmly into the leopard's spine in an effort to help Sassan bring it to the ground. His fangs also attempted to grab a hold of the creature's spine by positioning his muzzle between his two fore-paws, hoping to keep the creature's motion limited.

DICE ROLLS!


[Sassan] basically smooshes the poor leopard. Several cracking sounds can be heard as she lands on it, the result of ribs and spine breaking in several locations. The leopard screams in pain and throws its head against the ground, obviously in a great deal of pain and unable to fight back. [Kinji]’s claws dig deep into the leopard's flesh, but his aim is actually off a bit. He manages to slit open an artery as his claws strike closer up to the leopard's throat, and the smaller cat dies shortly after from broken bones and blood loss.

The sensation of bones cracking under the weight of her paws sent shivers of pleasure jetting up Sassan’s limbs. She purred as the smaller feline cried out, and then laughed with glee when Kinji managed to slash its neck open. The leopard died under the violent endeavors of the lions, and the Princess lowered her muzzle toward the bleeding neck to lap up some of the crimson drink, not caring if her tongue swept over Kinji’s paw in the process.

"I like this game!" she roared the, lifting her bloodied lips as her claws curled into dead flesh. "Y’know… we should take this to Noemi," she then suggested, lowering her voice slightly as she looked her adopted brother square in the eye. They could keep a paw or something as proof to show the other’s back home, but giving this to the deity seemed like the right move.

They were surprisingly successful... the creature being completely obliterated by the combined attacks of the two lions. The lifeblood of the creature spilled from it's neck, drenching Kinji's paw, and it made him feel invigorated... still... the leopard was young, and a feline nonetheless. He didn't know if this should be celebrated as a successful hunt or a derogatory murder.

Sassan was excited, proclaiming her pride over her kill as she exclaimed that his game was fun. She then suggested to him that they give the body to Noemi, and Kinji perked up.

"Wait, you have seen Noemi too? You think she'll take an offering she didn't ask for?"

He asked, scanning her reaction to his question. He hadn't known that anyone else knew about the deity besides him and his mother. So far she had only asked for him to kill a family of meerkats for her. He didn't know it was acceptable to simply give her anything they saw fit.

"Well, yeah. I’ve seen her in my dreams. And why wouldn’t she?" Sassan replied, her tones implying Kinji was stupid for asking. Then she grinned mischievously when an analogy entered her mind. "Koemi didn’t ask for the kiss I gave him after our fight, but he still accepted it, didn’t he?" she hummed, her tail dancing with delight above her back. Then she attempted to shove her face at his, stopping when it was only mere inches from his face. She then slowly licked her lips and said, "Just like you wouldn’t protest if I tried to kiss you now, right little brother?"

The older girl replied to his question as though the answer was the most obvious one in the world. He huffed at that swipe at his intelligence and common sense... but soon after she spoke about his brother and how he had not even flinched away when she had kissed him. Kinji scowled once more as she moved closer to him, putting her face in his and whispering to him as though she were being some kind of temptress.

"Sassan... we are not siblings. And I would protest,. Actually, I'd protest loudly if you tried to kiss me right now.

So don't."


He said with a slight sneer as he moved away from her to inspect the dead creature... although at this point it was simply something to do as an excuse to walk away from the older girl.

"Look... you hurt my brother when all he had been doing was trying to defend me. You hurt him pretty bad.

Maybe he's forgiven you for that... for whatever reason... but I haven't. I'm not as good as he is, so I'll never accept you as my sister, and I'll never look at you the way he does. I just want that to be clear."


Kinji told her, finding a spot on the creature that he could grab. He clutched the portion of the body in his maw and hoisted it up, his singular gaze bearing down on Sassan as he waited for her to pick up her end so that they could carry the carcass to the Abyss together.
