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

gold light shining on so many things,

Inyan, too, had found himself drawn away from the openness of the meadow he'd first come upon. The territory he'd found himself in was too vast to restrict himself to the valley, with its winter ghosts gusting winds, peaceful as it was. He'd never considered himself a victim of wanderlust, having primarily stayed in the territory of his birth for most of his life, but once he'd decided to leave his homeland for good... well, his paws seemed to have a mind of their own.

Presently, those paws were having a bit of trouble navigating the iced-over stones, his blunt claws extended to the best of their ability as he tried to gain purchase on the icy rocks. His former pack was a forest pack, and while he was thick-furred and used to the cold well enough, he had never had trouble with such nonsense before. After a moment Inyan paused, a deep frown creasing the lines of his brow. How on earth was he supposed to manage this? Careful as he was, his steps only earned him a stride or two before he was slipping, and though he didn't fear pain he certainly wasn't looking forward to a long downward tumble. Still, this place merited investigation, so he pressed on.

He had managed, much to his surprise, to pick his way halfway downwards with minimal slipping and absolutely no yelping. His confidence boosted, it nevertheless seemed fate had a different method of descent in store for him. One misstep was all it took, one paw missing its mark on the frozen rock face. With the grace of a fledgling deer the male toppled, sliding and skittering until he landed with an almost earthshaking thud. He was a heavy male, muscular and thick, so while his fall didn't result in anything broken he certainly would be feeling it later - even as he felt it now.

Inyan picked himself up carefully, testing which of his legs could take his weight and surprised to find that nothing seemed broken. He'd be sore, though, that was for sure, and a sharp pain in his side reminded him of his folly as he drew a careful breath. Ugh. His ears folded against his head in consternation, a light, self-reprimanding growl issuing like low rolling thunder from his chest. The beauty of the frozen falls were entirely lost on the male, though it wasn't long before he realized he had company - and had likely had an audience for his abrupt entrance. His growl rumbled to a stop, and he turned to face Morrigan, his eyes flashing with the fierce embarrassment of a proud warrior caught in a moment of foolishness.

He didn't speak first, watching the female with serious sienna eyes, perhaps a little impolitely. They were well-matched in color, both red-toned, though the bright rusty hue of his ruff was mottled with an abstract patterning of browns and creams. He was larger than her in height and build, though, even humbled as he was by his fall. He'd wait for her to say something, though it was altogether unlikely she'd missed his graceful descent.
