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.

WE WILL NOT BOW

I was at least smart enough to look for a ledge before I jumped. Otherwise I would have been jumping to my death. From there though, my plan ended. I didn't know where I would go from here. I hadn't planned that far. I look up, waiting for her to come to the edge but I must say, she's taking her time about it. Is this how all females are going to be? Mother keeps father waiting all the time like it's a game. She seems to enjoy it. Father tolerates it pretty well.

I haven't learned a lot of patience so far though. My tail flicks behind me, ears flicking back as I raise a brow in puzzlement. Won't she be curious of my fate. Finally I see her dainty paws on the edge as she lies down and looks down at me. She grins down at me and my lips twitch, offering her a smirk back. She laughs and I tilt my head, ears pricking forward to listen to the tinkling sound. It reminds me of mother's laugh.

Her questions reminds me of how little I put into this, planning wise. My smirk falters just a little as I look around on the ledge as if an answer will jump out at me. She looks amused, flashing her teeth at me as she tells me she's waiting. I make a "hmph" sound in my throat, my tail flicking as I turn to look over the edge. I can better see the bottom of the waterfall from here, a daring thought perculating in the back of my mind. My jaw tightens as my stubborn streak shines through and then I look back up at her.

"Why go back when I can go forward? See ya at the bottom!"

I yell up at to her before I run and leap off the edge. I close my eyes only briefly before I realize that if this is the end, I want to see it coming. I won't be the coward who hides from the truth. When I reopen my eyes, I see nothing but foam and water beneath me. I thought I had seen an open spot of just water from up on the ledge, a way past the sharp jagged rocks at the very bottom of the waterfall if you fall straight down which is why I ran and jumped out.

When I feel the blast of cold water hit my skin, I know that I've made contact and when no sharp rocks come up to pierce my flesh, I know that I judged my jump right. That's a relief at least. Still the fall is enough to push the air from my lungs as I continue to sink and I have to start paddling, my lungs burning for oxygen. It feels like an eternity before I make it to the surface, sputtering and gasping over the foam as the current pushes me away from the waterfall. When I see a large rock up ahead connected to dry land, I make no haste in paddling in that direction. My dull claws dig at the slimy surface but finally I mange to climb up, shaking the cold water off the moment I get on strong supported ground. I look up toward the ledge where I left her with a "Ha!", my blue eyes brimming with excitement now that I pulled it off.
