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.

Return to Lunar Children

quoth the raven, nevermore.

It was somewhat of a rarity to find the three brothers apart from one another. Since birth they had been inseparable, exploring the heights of their home together and scouting out the lows as well. It was the resilient garnet eyes of the largest brother that so often truly scanned for danger, to always have the protection of his family in mind; especially Kalseru, their sister. Today found the rapidly growing boy drifted away from his siblings. Large paws deftly brought him further away from the boundaries of Spirane. His ebony form stood out stark against the winter wonderland backdrop he trotted across. As much as the storms of autumn had fascinated him, the blizzards of winter elicited a different reaction from the perhaps overly serious child. When the first snows had fallen he had thought the matter annoying and overall unworthy of his attention. But when the first true snowstorm had struck, whiting out the sky beyond the den’s entrance so that he could see no further than a few paws width’s in front of his face, his attention had been recaptured.

Today, however, was a mundanely calm day, and it was sheer boredom that brought him to the crags. Happenstance had brought him south and east until he found a landscape that caught his interest. He’d considered traveling straight east to the valley, but from the heights of Spirane’s mountains you could see the sloping landscape there. No, he was far more pleased with his findings here, the way the rocky inclines were so rough and broken. It reminded him of some parts of the upper reaches of Spirane, where their mother had advised them not to roam, for fear of rock slides.

He had already begun climbing up within the ridges of rock and ice when he spotted the form of another wolf. Not a particularly social wolf, he merely noted her presence as he continued his ascent. Despite being born and raised among the heights of the mountains, overlarge paws and growing legs made his climb less than flawless. He was the largest and most rapidly growing of the quartet of royal pups, but rather than meaning he would be the first to attain some form of balance in his appearance, it simply exacerbated the problem. Even so, it did not take much imagination to look upon the boy and realize the behemoth he would one day become.

When he reached a large, flat expanse of rock he stopped, circling once before lounging down upon the cold surface. He had paid little attention to the female who lazed not that far away, and so he hadn’t realized that he was, essentially, on the same level as her. The unevenness of the terrain perhaps gave him an inch or two of height in choice of perch as compared to hers. Garnet eyes swept across his surroundings, drifting over her with neither disdain nor particular interest, as he settled into this solitary state which he so seldom found himself in.
