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.

I'm only joking, I don't believe a thing I've said.
Karama Uzoh
She was losing her mind obsessively searching for these runestones. She found nothing useful. She barely found anything at all. Definitely, nothing that'd help her situation in any way. They were growing, obviously given away by her slowly growing abdomen. She couldn't let it continue. She had to stop it as soon as possible. With the shit she'd seen in the past several years, and she had to dig for the hidden treasure that was a solution to the unwanted pregnancy? It was as if things got freaky in terms of magic at any time except when Karama needed it. Why was everything so against her?

"I'm going to prevent you from existing, I fucking swear on it." The words darkly rumbled from her jaws as she looked around. There had to be something. Perhaps she could drop her own self-preservation needs during hunts. Just the right kick from a hoof could knock the little goblin right out of her. She shook her head. Karama enjoyed not continuing a cycle of being beaten. Shikikan had already given her enough of that. Besides. She already lost her eye. What if such a plan went south? She could lose the other. She could get something vital accidentally hit. She was a reckless creature, but the hyena wouldn't consciously dive into injuring herself. That was just stupid.

Besides. It would get her nowhere. Nowhere but beaten.

Perhaps she would have a better time just going into the ocean, challenging herself to swim as far away as possible in slim hopes she'd reach a new land. Or just swimming forever. At least there, she couldn't gain to lose. She couldn't be beaten and raped. 

Maybe she could reduce her food consumption. Her body could only share so much. But Karama knew jack shit about the details of biology and how pregnancy worked on a deeper level. What if her body continued to split nutrients towards the spawn she was carrying, stripping the carrier of what she needed? Karama wasn't intending to starve herself. No. She had to keep to the original plan to blindly hope runestones might tell her something helpful. She had no idea what kind of knowledge runestones offered. But she'd take anything that could suggest a way to stop this in time. "Shikikan can't have you." She would not give him the brainwashed fodder he needed. She would not be responsible for her own downfall. She couldn't.

"I can fake it all."
What are you smoking? I'm just a-fuckin' with your head.

Bliz had been fairly quiet since everything happened. He just wanted things to be ok, but he knew they were not. He did his job of watching the borders. Taking care of the deer child when it was required. But Dragon really handled most of that. He was the father after all. He avoided Karama for some time. He saw her at the savanna but he didn't approach. She didn't want to see him after all. He fucked up. It sucked. He was nothing really. Was she really right about how things where here? That it would never change? It wouldn't change if he kept up what he was doing though. But it was stupid to fight Shikian himself. He was way to powerful. And his weak water tricks wouldn't help much. On his daily route he came across Karama's scent. He froze up. He didn't know what to do. She didn't want to see him. But maybe it was different now? In any case he decided to pretend he didn't notice and finish his decided path today. It took him right past her. But he tried to stay away.. but he couldn't. He had to check up on her. So instead he headed for her. He approached just enough to really be in eye sight and he stopped. He paused but make sure she could see him. Wondering what she would do, but leaving the choice to her. At least he thought he could.
