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

the heart is hard to translate,

Phew! He had looked worried for a second, but it seemed he quickly moved on from whatever had been bothering him - instead, he'd mentioned Spirane's allies. She grinned eagerly, pleased that he'd been able to deduce that and that she hadn't inadvertedly caused him some new anxiety or something. Spirane was, by all means, one of Moladion's safest packs. She hadn't really thought about it before, but it made sense to hear it like that. Even Diveen had enemies, and schemes, but she'd never caught a whiff of that in Spirane.

Of course, she couldn't stop the inevitable concern that struck when she discussed the topic of, well, Moladion having been destroyed in the past. After all, she doubted there'd be any wolf who could hear those kinds of tales and stay completely unmoved. It was important to hear them though, especially when she considered how unexpected it had been. When she had first heard the story, she had thought - immediately! - about how unbelievable it was. When it was happening, dozens of wolves had probably thought the same thing..and they'd perished because of it. In a way, she hoped it'd keep Eldrax curious and open-minded enough to accept that someday, something like it could happen again. That was what made the past so important! If they knew it all, they could see it happening again and take action long before it played out the same way.

She had been a little caught up in her own thoughts, but she quickly snapped back to attention when he asked if anybody had survived. She blinked at first, a little surprised by his question, but her face lit up into a broad grin. He was cute! Instead of asking about the gory details or something like that, he'd just wanted to know the stories of success. She'd have to talk to his parents, she noted, and let them know just how well they'd managed to raise him.

"Well, you and I are here, so our ancestors certainly survived!" She poked her tongue out at him and raised a brow, as if the thought most certainly should have occurred to him. "Plenty of others must have survived, too! But...I've always wondered how." She pursed her lips and paused her strides, her eyes on him for a moment as she let the question settle in. Wasn't that the question? And who, she wondered, could possibly know the answer? How had his ancestors, or even her own, have known to leave? She'd asked her mother once, but Yin had not been of Moladion's blood. Yin had only known strange stories from a faraway place that had given Yuki information, but not the information she needed to know for Moladion. As for Eldrax? Well, his family might know, and she thought (quite optimistically!) that he might be curious enough to ask around. Then, they could compare what they learned, and find the truths in the details!

"Of course we'll explore more!" She quickly laughed, moving on seamlessly from her moment of thought. She jogged onward, down the paths, hoping he'd not notice their slight turns towards Spirane - at least, not yet. "It does make me wonder, though. I wonder just how well we even know Spirane? I only know so many of the mountain paths, and I've heard rumours of things like 'ice caves' and 'hidden pathways' to the peak." She raised a brow at him, inquisitive. Had he heard about them too? Did he know them? From what she could deduce, Daenerys in particular had special places she could retreat to without many knowing, and the healer Moonfeather had a way of disappearing without leaving the borders too. Yuki was just as interested in the wolves of Spirane, after all, so she'd made sure to keep her eyes, ears and nose on the borders from time to time.

"Even when I lived in Diveen, I didn't get to learn everything about the pack. There was always a new canyon or some new path that I'd missed," she said offhandedly as she scrambled up a rock, waiting a moment for him to follow before she continued upwards. The path was easy enough, but required a little acrobatics, and lead towards the upper portion of the crags. The path dropped down at the edges a few feet to where they had been, and whereas it wasn't the most exciting path, it did lend a more interesting perspective as she continued on their way. Being able to look down at the lower paths made it more obvious where wolves had traveled in the past - stone didn't show pawprints, but it did show a slight shallow where they'd traveled often enough to wear the stone down.

"Even here, the grotto was considered new once. Somebody discovered it," she said with a voice unashamedly excited at the prospect as her eyes trailed off towards the mountains in thought. "Wouldn't it be exciting to find somewhere new in Spirane, too? Like a hidden cave! With strange stones and unusual trinkets from years and years ago." She could practically smell it!
