When solid ground grows soft with emerald moss and rivulets of black mud, and coffee-colored water pours slowly around the trunks of densely carpeted trees, this marks the beginning of Laod Mor: the swamp of Blossom Forest. Time itself seems to slow to a soporific crawl . . . the humid jungle air grows stagnant, thick with the scent of rich flooded earth and an abundance of green things that can be found nowhere elseóexcept perhaps Caidir Olc. In some areas of the swamp, water rises so high the only way to cross it is to crawl across fallen logs or massive roots arching from their liquid beds; in other places a wolf might wade easily through the mireóor find a fortunate stretch of mostly dry earth. Pieces of the great river, Glaesfaet Sceawere, also slice through from time to time: small falls that feed into surprisingly clear pools, only to terminate into tar-like pits. Of course, Laod Morís beauty shines brightest at night. Here, fireflies gather at all times of the year . . . suffusing the shadowy place with millions of twinkling lights.

Those looking to hunt here of course find a myriad of water prey, including caiman, turtles, fish, crayfish, otters, and toads.


Who art thou?[Open]

Who art thou?

The little pup felt nothing, she couldn't see anything. She could hear the water, but she couldn't see it. Light brown orbs are closed, she couldn't see anyway. What use was there for the little pup to keep her eyes open when she couldn't see? Her ears twitch, hearing water. The water kept getting louder and louder as ZoŽ went closer and closer. Her feet stop as she lays down near the water. Clouded milky brown orbs are uncovered as the black and white pup sniffles. Tears come out of blinded eyes as she remembers the pain of being thrown out of the den and then, every time she tried to go back, her siblings' teeth on her pelt. ZoŽ goes to the water's edge, and drinks for a couple of minutes. After she's done drinking water, she curls up at the edge, her unseeing eyes roaming the Falls.
