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.


Iím Not the Devil, But I Wonít Be Your Hero (Hondo)

ĒI Can Bleed if I Want to Bleed; ĒI Can Feel if I Feel the NeedĒ


Life was only beginning for the young pup as she began to explore her surroundings. So far she had not done much exploring outside of the den that she shared with her siblings and parents, but she had been more and more as she grew. Missandei was still young and by no means close to leaving her family, but she wanted to see what the rest of the world was like. Once the pups were big enough to start exploring they had been allowed to wander near the den, but never too far. The mottled femme would push the boundaries sometimes and wander further than she was supposed to, but her mother or father was always there to bring her back to the group and make sure that she didnít wander too far off. Though she was not the most vocal of her siblings, often times being quieter than the rest, she was curious and wanted to see what the rest of the world was like. It seemed unfair to be confined to one place when there was so much more to explore out there.

Missandei began to pick up on her familyís habits, especially her mother who never went out during the day. She didnít yet make the connection to it being because she had been turned to a vampire when her and her siblings had been born, but she picked up on it nonetheless. Their father was around day and night though, going out with them during the day and sometimes out at night hunting. But one day when their mother was sleeping, their father also left the den. This happened from time to time, but today the pup decided to take advantage of it and do some exploring on her own, and not next to the den this time. Moving carefully to not make wake her mother, Missandei made her way out of the den into the sunlight. A big smile came across the femmeís features as quickly bounded away from the den. There were not many trees in this pack, and she wanted to see what a forest was like.

It was slow going for the small pup, but eventually she saw trees, and an excited yip escaped her as she ran for them. Her plume wagged behind her as she explored the trees, hiding in shadows that they threw as she wandered about. It was like a whole new world in this forest, and she wondered what else lay out there for her to discover. A new sound reached Missandeiís ears, and they perked up at it, trying to figure out what it was. It sounded like a river or a stream, and she decided that she would go and check it out. It was indeed a river, and she paused her explorations for a moment to take a long drink from it, quenching the thirst that she had built up. Lifting her head from the water, she looked around to see where she would go next. Not knowing what was nearby, she just picked a random direction and went with it. As she moved through the trees, the ground got softer and the trees were different too, much more green on them. The river was still nearby as she continued on through the more marshy lands, not realizing that it could be dangerous here. Missandeiís head began to feel a little funny as she walked further into the swamp, but there was something urging her forward. But then she found her paws getting stuck in the mud, and it was harder and harder for her to move forward before she finally did get completely stuck. She pulled at her limbs, but one of her hind limbs got pulled further into the damp earth and she couldnít move it. She began to panic, and looked around left and right with orange orbs to see if anyone was nearby to help her.
