It's time for an update to how we handle time! Now that we are a couple days into the first season of this year, I'll explain how our flow of time will now work. We will be keeping double time, but our time will be more fluid. Essentially, from here on, you will be allowed to back date threads.

All threads from here on out will need to have a date AND time listed in the thread title. This will allow users to see exactly when a thread occurred.

Previously, if you posted a new thread, the time and date that thread was posted was the time in which that event was happening. We are altering the rules regarding timelines to allow you to backdate threads for any date in the current year. (This is Year 3.) So this year started on 8.29.19. You may date a thread from the current date backward to the first day of the year. So as today is 8/31/19, you may date a thread for any date between 8/29/19 and 8.31.19. You may not date threads forward.

So as the year progresses, you will be able to date threads for any time that has already passed in the year, but you must be careful not to break your own character's timelines. The best way to track a character's timeline is to go to their profile and click the button on it labelled "Thread Log". It shows every thread the character has ever participated in. Likewise, events that would break your timelines should also be carefully monitored. So, for example, if I posted a thread for a character dated for today in the desert, it would break the timeline if I posted a thread dated for the 29th in which they ended up dying.

Excessively breaking your own timelines or other characters' timelines is frowned upon and if done consistently, Staff may intervene. Tomorrow I will be instituting changes to leader logs and pregnancies that reflect these changes, so keep an eye out! Please DM or PM a staffer if you have any questions.

Rudis’s Peaks

Leave it all behind by Ruth; 07-18-2019, 01:04 AM
Standing at a little over twelve thousand feet, the Rudis' Peaks are a cluster of three mountains covering roughly seventy miles of territory. The slopes are dominated by a variety of asiatic flora and fauna, though the steep temperature gradient moving up the mountains diminishes the variety higher up. The peaks are covered in snow year round. However, the highest of the three peaks, Rudis' Point, harbors a long-dormant volcano. The Peaks meet the sea with high, dangerous cliffs that threaten death to any who take a tumble. Though the winters are harsh, the summers bring thaws to much of the mountain, feeding streams and rivers and lakes that line the slopes. Creatures can find much shelter here in the form of caves formed by lava half a millenia ago.

Boreal Forest

Glimpse of You by Karcsi; 09-21-2019, 10:12 AM
Seated between the Grotto and Rudis' Peaks, an ancient taiga covered in evergreens covers the landscape. The land meets the sea at its northern borders, falling away to short, sandy beaches where the surf meets land. Cold and cruel, many creatures find it difficult to survive. Temperatures vary wildly depending on the time of the year, with winter bringing frigid temperatures and scarce prey. The summer thaw offers respite and a return of food for prey animals. The land receives most of its water from the lakes on its borders, but the river cutting through its middle is a source of freshwater during the summer months when it isn't frozen over.

Birch Valley

Hit a Goldmine by KittyKookiez; 08-15-2019, 11:44 AM
Beneath the Peaks lies the Birch Valley. It is dominated primarily by its namesake, a forest of birch trees. The valley is divided by a river known as "The Whip", its source found somewhere in the Rudis' Peaks. The climate can be mild or unforgiving, depending on the season, though prey is relatively abundant year round. Where it borders the ocean, the territory gives way to rocky beaches with very little sand. Its border with the Primeval Forest is not quite defined, as the transition from birch trees to oaks and undergrowth is a subtle one.

Massive trees dominate this territory, creating a thick canopy that makes it seem to be twilight inside the forest at all hours of the day. Openings to shallow caves can also be found on occasion, offering shelter to the territory's residents. The undergrowth is likewise thick in some areas, reducing the distance that creatures can see. Water is abundant in this territory due to the lakes at its northern and southern borders, along with the roaring and somewhat dangerous river that cuts through the territory known as The Whip. The Whip's tail end passes through here, swelling and shrinking with the seasons according to the meltwater coming from Rudis' Peaks. Though a careful creature can find a safe path to cross by jumping from stone to stone, those who dare try and swim across during the summer months are liable to drown. On its eastern border, it is divided from the Grotto by a much tamer river that is safe to swim across year round. This territory rarely ever sees snow, and what snow it does see tends to melt away quickly, as the territory never becomes cold enough to allow it to remain.
