The caves are where it all started. They allowed the first wandering wolves access to the land of Blossom Forest, and afterward housed the monster that had threatened the earliest of inhabitants. The heroes had slain it, yes, but in doing so had also closed off one of the pathways in the caverns, magic blocking one of the many exits to Blossom Forest. But over the years, the original spell has weakened and now the way is clear. What will not only crawl out of the caverns, but erupt from it? The caves now thrum with the ever growing magic wellspring as it spreads out into the land. It is from here that the first vampire of Blossom Forest was corrupted, and it is here that any subsequent vampire will be born. To traverse its paths is dangerous - there is an almost impenetrable darkness, and in that abyss lays many secrets - hidden holes one could fall through, weakened floors, and then of course there is the labyrinthe itself. No one knows what the deeper levels hold - no one has traveled them and survived to tell tales. Not even those who call this place home dares to test their luck by going in deep, deep, deeper. The magic exuding from this place has rearranged the lands - moving packs, changing the terrain. Here the cave looks the same but it is not - it is more dangerous than ever. In addition, outside the mouth of the cave the sacred stones that once stood erect in another place now stand guard. They are colored the most beautiful arrangement of jewel tones, and almost appear to be made of gems themselves, no longer the dull grey they once were. It is within them that all official fights must take place - at the Blican Orlege. Welcome to Drylic Cofa...




katia remained silent under the verbal lashing, the rise and fall of his growling and his words sending ripples along her tense shoulders, hackles pricking. her eyes squeezed shut, ears flattening as his words rose to a shout. the silence returned, broken only by the occasional dripping of water, and katia gradually opened her dual toned portals. he was shaking his head, his displeased glare matching her appraising look when she dared to draw his attention.

his reaction to her words was surprising - his expression went slack. she had never before caught her guard by surprise, and the show of his emotions was something she was pleased by. katia felt as if they were finally on equal footing - she could see his emotions as clearly as he could see her’s. she did not waste the opportunity, instead keeping her focus on the wreck of a man before her. and what she saw made her tender heart wail: the pain and suffering, the broken edges, and the darkness it all had caused to bloom. the desire to protect the man, to wrap herself around him until no one could ever hurt his battered heart, was almost overwhelming - had she not forced herself to continue speaking, she doubted she could have refused the urge to go and embrace him.

”But all that there is is shadows…” had the silence not been deafening, katia doubted that she would have heard akuji’s mumbled words, spoken in a trancelike tone. as she finished speaking, he swayed closer towards her, moving as if hypnotised. admittedly, weariness filled the young woman as he drew even closer, finally coming to settle his face into the crook of her neck. the tension flooded out of her, her own maw turning to rest against him. she knew not what had happened to him to draw the pitiful whimpers out of him, or what had caused the extensive damage to his soul, but she would be damned straight to hell if she ever something as horrific happen to him again.

and beneath the edge of protection and the desire to help him heal, her feelings for the warrior were tangled. she cared for him, perhaps more than any other princess would care for the knight who was supposed to guard her. before she could dare to touch those feelings, or her feelings regarding this state akuji was in, the male leapt away from her. the princess’ two toned eyes widened with surprise, ears lowering as his words flowed bitterly. ”Damn you…” confusion and hurt filled the girl as she watched him retreat towards the entrance of the cavern. ”We should go.” katia’s jaw clenched and she nodded. ”my father will be worrying,” she agreed, keeping her tone light. he would have to decide to come back to her - she couldn’t force him. she followed him silently, pausing a few feet from his side and waited for him to lead the way back to cold summers.
