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.

The Volcano

Watch this Madness (Shiki... by Jyzara; 07-18-2019, 09:26 PM
Near the bottom of Omne lays a volcano colloquially (and to Actun's disgust) known as Actun's Maw. Still active, magma bubbles in the mouth of the volcano. Seated at its feet are volcanic rocks and deposits of obsidian. The warm, humid climate makes this an excellent home to tropical plants, amphibians, and reptiles, though other species of animals make their home here as well. Steam vents are scattered throughout the base of the mountain, threatening to scald anyone who gets too close. To the west lies the savannah, their border easily discernible due to the sharp change from tropical plants to dry grasses. Its borders with its other neighbors are more subtle, characterized by the gradual transition of plant species. The most reliable sources of water are the river that cuts the territory in half and the lake at its northern border, though the river can be inconsistent as it approaches the base of the volcano.

Crater Plains

There is little to see here besides the massive craters that take up the landscape. It is unclear what exactly happened here, as volcanic rock and obsidian can be found here as well as remnants of meteorites. Either way, the land has been battered into submission. The earth is mineral rich, but plant-poor and dry. The bottoms of some of the craters have small, muddy puddles in them, but the taste of the water hints at extremely high mineral counts and could pose a danger to the average creature. The safest place to find water are the relatively narrow and sluggish river that cuts through the territory, though the lake on its eastern border has water that is likewise safe to drink.

The Rainbow Eucalyptus Forest

Peculiar trees can be seen everywhere you look in this territory. One might guess that Actun had a hand in this land's creation, simply looking at the brightly colored trunks of the rainbow eucalyptus trees. The climate is tropical and warm year round, boasting a steady temperature and similar, though less impressive, variety of lifeforms than the rainforest. Dotted with rivers and relatively moist, there is plenty to drink here. A lake called Parteros Lake dwells inside the territory, named for its peculiar shape.

Red Mesa Desert

This land is one of the most inhospitable in Omne. Though two minute rivers run through the territory, water is otherwise almost non-existent here and only the toughest creatures can survive the extremely hot temperatures. While it's hot during the day, temperatures fall dramatically at night and can be dangerous to the unwary. What isn't filled with dunes of red, dry sand is dominated by towering red sandstone. Shelter can be found in the shadow of these stones. Most of the creatures that live here come out at dawn and dusk, avoiding the intense heat of midday.
