Disaster has struck!
The Crags are a series of rocky formations with small caves and crevices throughout. Many of the lower-lying areas of the Crags have been flooded, however, with water pouring in from the Northern stretches of Moladion. Some paths have been completely submerged, and some are nothing more than a few rocky peaks sticking out of the water. The water is fairly slow moving but begins to pick speed up towards the Grotto, becoming a series of intense rapids and waterfalls as it nears the Grotto's entrance.
The area itself is still traversible. However, it can be risky. Large amounts of debris can enter the waterway, creating bridges at times but also creating dams that break and cause ocassional flash-flooding. Be careful, travelers! One wrong step and you could end up finding out where the water goes.
Note: Susil Crags will return to normal once 25 posts have been completed (or at Staff discretion). During this time, new threads will receive a 'Surprise','Disaster', and prizes.

fourteen - no heart - Heyel's soul - Spider of Spirane
sister of warlow, dam of sven *adopted*
this is her in blackouts
His own greeting is matched with her gentle smile in return. It is true that Sleekwing was a devoted son of Spirane. He had stayed through the rising and fallings of Purge and the temporary hold of Snowshoe on the mountain. For a time she had thought about staking her own claim if only to ward off the volatile mood that had befallen the kingdom but Daenery's had slipped in and taken control. Natu did not for one moment regret the ruling of her current Queen. She held the utmost respect for the female and pride for her in the way that a mother finds pride in a child. They were not particularly close in such a manner yet perhaps it is Natu's age that makes her feel such. Dany had taken the kingdom into her paw and shaped it into something growing and worthwhile.
It seems that they fall right in with each other once more, the ease between them eliciting friendly smiles and relaxed muscles. Natu opens her maw for a moment to taste the air. A faint mist taints the air from the waterfall and the droplets condense on her tongue, so very little but enough to keep her wanting for more. A swim has not been taken in a while and this seems a perfect spot, she thinks. Perhaps she could entice Sleekwing into such, but maybe by then she would be languid beneath the afternoon sun and want only to nap, yet neither was a bad option. Here in his company with the summer alive around them it was pleasing for her to just breath.
She is pleased by his comment of Sven. He might not be hers in the sense of blood but she had raised him and for that she did give herself some credit. It made her happy to be recognized as a mother for she was certain Sleekwing knew that he was not her pup. Her tail thumped against the rocky surface that surrounded the waterfall. "He is a bit more shy than I am," she jokes with him with a wide grin and a delighted chuckle.
She is curious now the moment he speaks of his own children. She had not been aware, really, that Sleekwing had his own litter and had never seen him with another female. It was likely some form of bond between he and an imprint for Sleekwing, if she was correct, was not really the type to woo just anyone. Natu grins suddenly once more at his comment, her pale blue eyes narrowing on his and assuming his words attested to some version of nervousness. "Do not fret. Give them some time and I am sure you will know everything there is to know about them. As for training I would be delighted if they were of such inclinations. I do very much enjoy the mind of a child."
If Sleekwings children possessed any of his prowess they would be fine warriors. Her ears fall back in bliss at his compliment, her tail thumping once more. "It was a challenge she gave me. Your sister does not like to make it easy, but what fun would easy be anyways? I do believe I still smell of swamp though." She wrinkled her nose playfully now before looking towards the water. "A swim might solve that. Shall we see who makes it to the other side first? I must make sure that you are still fit to teach the children!"
Natu's laugh is carefree and challenging and she waits for him to decide for but a moment. Even if he stays she is going in. If he agrees she will jolt off the rock into the water and begin to swim across the cool pool, dipping her maw in to scoop up water and drink as she goes, eager to get to the other side.
