Susil Crags

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.

They try to remember, but still they forget
That the heart beats in three's
Just like a waltz
and nothing can stop you from dancing

Another winter was fast approaching, another year alone. Yet, while I would never have pups of my own, I had Natu's to look after and to help raise. I had sworn the day I found out she was pregnant that I would be the best aunt to those puppies and offer them all the love I had within me and more. I may not have been there for their birth, but I was here now and I would never leave my sister behind nor her beautiful children ever again. I knew that should anything ever happen to Natu and Fenrir, God help me if that day ever comes, I would step in and help raise them. I would teach them how to be wonderful wolves like their mother. Thankfully though, I knew it would never ever come to that, and I would only be an aunt to them who would spoil them rotten.

There had been a distinct lack in a leader figure within Asteraia for the past few weeks. I had not officially been joined but I had been keeping close by the border so that I could visit Natu and her family when I pleased. I wanted to become a full fledged member, but I couldn't seem to track down the wolf in charge to apply for membership. Soon though I would be a full member, and then I would find a den close to Natu's so I could spend as much time with her and those pups as possible. For today though, I had decided to simply go wandering, to explore Moladion and see the colors as the leaves began to die and fall all around.

My soul was somewhere out here in the freelands. It had been not too long since I had seen him last, my wonderful imprint Eric. The moment, though, had been so very rudely interrupted by his mate Seline, who left a nasty taste in my mouth. I knew that she was the reason he still believed he was a monster, that she urged him to do macabre acts. She corrupted his mind and blackened his heart. I hoped to never see her again, or the temptation to wipe the smug grin off her face as she stood above the lifeless body of a pup may be all too much. I would not risk loosing my connection to Eric because of some washed up queens jealousy of my involvement with him. She may hold his heart in her cold clutches, but I kept his soul warm and alive, which was much more important.

I moved with the silent grace of an assassin, my body not giving away my increasing age in the slightest. My pure white fur surely stood out against the earthy colors all around me. It wasn't long before I left the colors of the wind behind for the grays of stone that made up the crags. There was something uniquely beautiful about this place: the way the waterfalls flows through the stone and create ponds of their own, or the small cave systems that held a life all their own. A small smile caressed my maw as I climbed to the top of one of the waterfalls and sat right on the edge, able to look out over the whole area. Not quite the view from Spirane but it was still just as breath taking.

Love what you have, and you'll have more love
You're not dying
Everyone knows you're going to love
Though theres still no cure for crying
