Legends ofAmarna

Warning! The anathema is here.

The doctrine that poisoned the souls of many, that wrought blood against blood, life against life. Aspasia has not been the same, nor will it ever be. As history fades into legend, and legend into myth, so too are the whispers of peace that had once brought each of the races together in harmony. As such a time faded into history, so does the chaos grow - the resentment that breeds loathing - that brings about war.

With the world pitted against each other, each race, equines, canines, and felines taking sides, the question is, which side will you choose?

Shine Brighter than a Shooting Star
The freedom was exhilarating. To run free through the endless woods of his brother's new domain seemed like a dream come true. Had he died? Perhaps on the ship from Ellennora. Perhaps he had been washed out to sea, or else starved on the voyage. Perhaps he was killed when the ship crashed. Gods knew he sould have been upset about that – guilt prickled at the edges of his consciousness that he had not yet shed a tear for the fallen, not even his own mother, who had not yet been found. How could he be so cold?


And yet... the forest beckoned, cool and green, even in the early autumn heat, still whispering of memories of summer past. It sang in him like a divine chorus, and he couldn't help but laugh. He had always known his dogs looked happy, but now he knew it was less happiness at seeing and being with him than the pure, boundless joy of just being a dog.


He ran all day, on and on through the summer woods, until the sun began to set and the world began to cool. On the other side of the forest, as the mountains melted into foothills, he came across a little house. Or... a guard shack? It sat before a tunnel into the mountainside, but seemed not to have been touched for many years.
Vivendel peered into the dark.


The tunnel stretched on and on, and in the quickly-diminishing light, he could pick out only the edges of brackets embedded into the walls. Once upon a time they may have been lit by bright torches, but now they sat unused, gathering dust. This was built. It was meant to be walked.
It was meant to be explored.
He trotted into the tunnel.


It stretched even farther into the endless dark than it seemed, and then suddenly the path opened wide and he stood on a ledge overlooking an entire subterranean city.
“Gods above...” the young wolf gasped. What wonders awaited him here? Was it as long-forgotten as it looked, or would he run into some foul denizen of the deep? In Ellennora, they told tales of dark elves beneath the earth. His mind ran wild with daydreamed adventures against them in this hidden world. He would defeat them in combat, of course, or perhaps sway them with offered friendship.


Dreams of grandeur kept his head high and his fur proudly fluffed, but he could shake the feeling of being watched.
The feeling of eyes in the dark...

Letting forth a cackling laugh at the top of her lungs, Illudra waited for her voice to come back at her. This city was empty, it was dark, and it echoed. In her insanity she had stumbled upon this place, and to her great joy she found that empty subterranean cities echoed.

Coming back to her in what seemed fifty distorted waves, she listened in sheer pleasure as she started again. The overlapping sound roaring ominously through the deserted hallways. She had left Vith behind again some days ago, and sought out the adventure of... well she wasn't quite sure. She always found her way back to his side, in some weird obsessed way she saw him as family... or maybe something she could bang... or perhaps she saw him as her master... it was likely an odd mix of both... either way it didn't matter. She was mad and knew it, and there were a lot of blurred lines she enjoyed keeping blurred in her life.

"Blood, death, strangling breath. Musty odors, misty nights. Rising, sleeping, causing, dowsing." She screamed into the openness before letting off another maniacal laugh. Falling to her knees as the garbled sound came back to her, she let herself enjoy the odd sort of bliss. Finally after several minutes, she rose to her feet, maw wide open in a smile, and her teeth gleaming in the dim light.

Moving forward, she trotted upwards back towards the entrance when she smelled something that had not been there before. Tensing, she realized it was a wolf. This would be fun... Remembering that creatures here seemed to be able to talk she moved forward as stealthily as she could, stopping some distance away and watching silently. He seemed rather careless. Perhaps she could eat him. It had been a while since she had feasted.

As she contemplated this creature's murder, a much more enjoyable though filled her mind, she could toy with him. Yes, that was much more enjoyable. Smiling cruelly from the shadows, she waited until he moved closer to her, seemingly ignorant to her. Finally, when she though he was close enough, she yelled at him at the top of her lungs. "BOO" With that, she started her mad cackling again, before revealing her spot in the shadows, opening her frightening maw, and looking at him with mad eyes like some sort of foul spirit.

Something was out there. He felt the eyes, heard a sound on the stone like... hoofbeats? And a voice echoing through the dark.
Vivendel padded on, putting nerves aside. Tiarsus would have to give him a little respect if he took down some sort of hideous, cave-dwelling beast on his own.

The city lay dark and still all around him, so very different from the bright, lively forest outside, every sound echoing, every scent dulled by stone and water. The voice echoed around him, reverberating as if screamed from a great distance, and his hackles began to rise. What kind of monster was out there, making that kind of noise...? That cackle... like a witch. Like a demon.
The wolf prince shuddered.
Was this such a good idea...?

No. Enough of that. It had to be a good idea. It had to be enough. How was he ever going to prove himself worthy of respect if he was always cowering under everyone else's watchful gaze? He wasn't a child anymore, gods-damnit! He grew up without anyone noticing and they could damn well notice for once!

Caught in his thoughts, he didn't notice the creature approaching, didn't smell her foul breath or hear her hoofbeats chiming on the stone.

”BOO”

He yelped and instinctively recoiled, scrambling backwards on the stone and nearly tripping over his own paws as a vicious maw melted out of the dark right in front of his nose – a maw of fangs like a shark, like a vampire. A maw of fangs hungry for his flesh and thirsty for his blood.
”Gods above--!” he gasped, heart thundering in his ears. The thing – the mare? How was this thing a horse?? - started laughing again, and her mad cackle chilled him through blood and bone. But as terrible as her teeth were... her eyes were worse. One look into those fuschia orbs told him all he needed to know: that she was mad as a hatter, that she wanted blood, that he may very well have gotten in far, far over his head. The prince gritted his teeth and snarled.
”Is that how you say hello on your planet?”
He wanted it to sound fierce and brave, but he couldn't stop his voice from trembling, or how breathy it was with the panic of moments ago. ”What the hell is wrong with you??”

Letting forth a cackling laugh at the top of her lungs, Illudra waited for her voice to come back at her. This city was empty, it was dark, and it echoed. In her insanity she had stumbled upon this place, and to her great joy she found that empty subterranean cities echoed.

Laughter finally ceasing, the echos from her insanity fading in the cavern, she grinned at him cruelly, letting her fangs drip with the tiniest bit of saliva. She didn't care. In all her mad laughter, she had forgotten to swallow, but saliva was a small thing, especially when frightening another. His yelp of fear had brought her a great sense of joy, the quivering in her voice brought her more so. It was a pleasure to her, and it made her want to toy with the poor creature standing in front of her even more.

Ignoring his first statement, she gave a small cackle, moving to trot around him in glee while speaking. "Nothing. Everything. Maybe something. Maybe nothing. Maybe everything all at once." It was with her normal rhythm. Poetic. Frightening all at once. Stopping, she stood there, lowering her head and stepping towards him. "But you... you are all alone here... in this dark cavern with meeeee." With that her voice rose again as she started her maniacal laughter, with the last word, the sound echoing again, distracting her thoughts for but a second before returning to the starry pelted canine.

"So tell me, little one, what would you like to be? A snack? Or would you rather be my pet? Huh???" As if a switch had flipped in her mind, she closed her maw with a thoughtful look and began her chanting. "Pink dresses, bonnets, lace. Pretty wolf, furs and face. Mine, yours, toys, boys. Come to play. Just today. Now. Forever. Prisoner sweet."

This mare, this... this thing... looked at him the way his dogs had been known to look at rabbits. Her fangs oozed, though if it was saliva or poison, the young prince couldn't tell. And her eyes... oh, those eyes... they caught what little light lived in the darkness of the cavern and seemed to glow, as though they could see into his very soul. She responded to his demanded query in a string of nonsense and he slowly began to back away, not yet fleeing, but knowing he would be safe only with some distance between them. He would not run. No, this was a foe to face, not a monster to flee. He was a prince, master of the blade, leader of his people... he would not run from a demon in the dark.

"But you... you are all alone here... in this dark cavern with meeeee."
He retreated as she advanced, but now his hackles began to rise, and his gums to draw back over wickedly sharp canines of his own.
”That's not your advantage, witch,” he snarled. ”Back off.”

But his warning was in vain, for the creature kept advancing. Step, step, step, hoofbeats ringing in echoes off the cold stone walls.
"So tell me, little one, what would you like to be? A snack? Or would you rather be my pet? Huh???"

His blood ran cold, then boiling hot. ”I think you'll find I'm rather bitter, and I'll definitely give you indigestion.”
Vivendel snarled again, snapping deadly teeth all too close to the demon's nose – she deserved it, really, for continuing to force her face so close to his. ”And I'm no one's damn pet!”

"Pink dresses, bonnets, lace. Pretty wolf, furs and face. Mine, yours, toys, boys. Come to play. Just today. Now. Forever. Prisoner sweet."
So... that was how it was going to be, was it? Fury coursed through his veins that this purple bitch would dare talk to him like this. Didn't she know who he was??
Probably not, if he was honest, but that didn't matter – she would know soon!

Drawing on innate magics so new to him since arriving in this new world, Vivendel's shaggy form rose onto hind legs, and the wolf-now-elf drew his rather ornate sword.
”Come any closer and I'll run you through, demon. You won't find me such easy prey.”
