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.

a moment of grace echoes into eternity

Ah I caught the scent, there, even as I perched on the edge of a particularly sharpened rock, my head dug into the crevice it made. The earth was damp here where the rains sluiced between the rocks and pooled, sinking in the earth as the only means of release. I wondered just how many mole rats I could flush out of here if I dug deep enough, imagining a whole network of tunnels that were shared by tiny field mice. The idea is entertaining, my stomach rumbling as I had not eaten since the day before, and only a skinny rabbit who had managed to survive winter only to be dead before it could gain the spring weight it desired. Pity. For it, not me, I had enjoyed it even if it was a bit bony. I lift my head, closing my eyes so that I can focus more on my nose as I lift a paw, ready to climb some more, when I hear it.

I sense her too, almost at the same moment that she giggles, and my head snaps back to see the faintest of movements disappearing behind a stone. It sounds young. Is it enough for me to stop my hunt? Certainly. I was growing bored of my game anyways, preferring the company of another intrepid soul. A slow grin crawls across my muzzle, my eyes gleaming wickedly in the sunlight as I leap off my rock and onto a flatter one down below. Downward I move, taking care to stay as silent as possible, but damn there are rocks everywhere! It is a testament to my skill that I don't end up knocking those tiny pebbles down as I grow closer, pausing at the edge of the stone she had hidden behind. I peek then quickly, my eyes catching the arresting picture of the petite female with strawberry markings on ebony fur. Black eyes stare up at mine and I blink in surprise, for they are different, much different than what I am used to.

I like different.

I grin down at her, adopting a rakish nature, and move to leap down towards the crag she has positioned herself in. "Fair lady, must I give chase? You would be a worthy catch, I think," I call down to her in my smoothest voice. A worthy catch indeed.

when you have done what you need to do, you will have lived long enough
