Welcome to Elenlond!

A BIT ABOUT US


Elenlond is a free-form original medieval fantasy RPG set on the continent of Soare and the Scattered Isles, located to the south in the Sea of Diverging Waters. The four chief nations of the western side of the world—Ashoka in northern Soare, Soto in western Soare, Morrim in eastern Soare, and Angkar, the largest of the Scattered Isles—continue to experience growth and prosperity since the fall of the Mianorite gods, although power struggles, within the countries or outside of them, continue to ensue.

ANNOUNCEMENTS


Mar. 22, 2014 A few small updates! A new article for the Telhamite Stone has been posted, and the Timeline has been updated to include 6 and 7 AR events, as well as those from the updated histories of the country articles. If you have events you'd like added to the Timeline, please PM a staff member!

Please also take a moment to congratulate our new OTMs, Olly with Janjak and Calli and Gale for their thread! Both are definitely worth checking out!

More information about these updates, including an upcoming Activity Check, forum cleanup, and seasonal poll can be found here.

Feb. 13, 2014 We've officially broken 50,000 posts! Congratulations on reaching this milestone, everyone! We're looking forward to doing another 50k with you all!

Jan. 12, 2014 It is officially Winter 7 AR! If you plan on making threads in the past, we recommend that you time stamp them (see the FAQ if you're unsure). As a reminder, the ball and the Green Turtle Key mini plot were both taking place in the winter, despite the season having not yet changed over.

Dec. 28, 2013 Winter voting has just launched, so please cast your vote for when you'd like to see the season change by Sunday, January 5, 2014. We would also like to point out that the Compendium has been completely redone, and the quotation generator has also been freshened up to include all of the new and exciting quotes we've had lately.

Please also take a moment to congratulate João for taking the character OTM with Pheonitia, and Izzy and Vul Shok for taking the thread OTM!

Lastly, we have a new mini plot to compliment Isra's ball! If you want to get in on some epic fighting and battle it out against a semi-werewolf, you can find out more information here.


FEATUREDS


New Character of the Moment

As one of Olly's—a returning player to Elly—new characters, Janjak "Waxworks" Beaumont shows not only the breadth of the kinds of characters Olly can play, but also his writing's improvement over the years. Janjak is a colourful, vibrant, humorous voodoo-practising medicine man who delights anyone who meets him as he peddles his wares across the continent. And he has a great accent, too!

Featured Thread
What sound does a goat make?

In this thread, Makaradhvaja heads into the No'bu Jungle to find better food to sate her hunger, when she attacked by a rival tribe of trolls. Fighting them off is no easy feat and injured and hungry, the troll is discovered by Yada'Nok, (or more accurately his goat-sister Ada), who tries to help her by offering to tend to her wounds. Maka decides she thinks Yada is stupid and confusing, breaks his spear and steals his sister, then runs off into the trees. Will Yada get Ada back, or will Maka cook and eat her? This thread is well written and humorous, and promises to either lead into a beautiful friendship or a terribly sour enmity between the two.

Welcome to our home, a world in which anything can happen. From sprawling deserts and vast forests to massive volcanoes and luscious hot springs, Soare and the Scattered Isles are beautiful places just waiting to be explored. For the brave and the bold or the cautious and the wary, creatures of all kinds roam the earth, looking for adventure or for a place to call their own. Species of all kinds - the well-known and the unknown - thrive here, though not always in harmony.

Elenlond is an original medieval fantasy RPG with a world that's as broad as it is unique. Calling on characters of all kinds, the sky's the limit in a world where boundaries are blurred and the imagination runs rampant. Restrictions are limited and members are encouraged to embrace their creativity, to see where they can go and what they can do. It's no longer just text on a page - it becomes real.

Soare

& Ashoka
Spanning the northern section of the Soaren continent, Ashoka is a dry nation, composed mainly of rolling dunes and spotted with rich oases. Towards the southern outskirts this vast desert gives way to jungle, while near the centre lies the capital city, Eldahar. There are many smaller villages surrounding Eldahar and the City of Oracles, but beyond these the desert is wild and inhabited only by the nomadic desert tribes. The inhabitants of this country maintain a lifestyle adapted to the hot sun and the scarcity of water, mostly wearing white and conserving their resources as much as possible. Orion de Lacey is the current Moghul, or king, of Ashoka.

& Soto
Lying to the south of Ashoka, Soto is a large nation that makes up the entire southwestern part of Soare. The land is dominated by large, lush forests which sprawl over rolling hills and are home to innumerable creatures as well as the Sotoan people. Winding through the landscape are wide rivers, which are accompanied by majestic waterfalls and tranquil lakes. Though the majority of Sotoan territory is on the mainland it also encompasses a less populated island to the south, named simply the Southwestern Island. The most important settlement here is the town of Hohoemi, while the two main cities on the mainland are Reine, which is the main port of Soto, and Madrid, where the country's governing body, the Council of the Twelve convenes.

& Morrim
Morrim is Soare's eastern-most nation, situated south of Ashoka, east of Soto. Its eastern coast is backed by the Do'suul Mountains, a chain of ranges that makes it impossible for ships to dock anywhere but in the south. These mountains give way to hills, which then give way to the expansive plains that make up most of the country. Also contained within the borders of Morrim are the Loniar Swamp and a small portion of the Erth'netora Forest. The Morrimians mostly inhabit these plains and occasionally the valleys in the Do'suul Mountains. The areas outside the cities are primarily agrarian, so a traveller will come across many famers' cottages and the occasional rickety village. However, as the country is still recovering from famine, many of these buildings are abandoned or have even become dens for crime. There are two prominent cities in Morrim: Kinaldi and Orl'Kabbar. Kinaldi is a much wealthier city, being the home of the Grand Palace of the Empress, while Orl'Kabbar is poor and riddled with crime. In the south there is also the trading town of Fairin, which is placed by the outlet of the Andakalisa River.

Morrim is currently ruled by the banshee Empress Isra Amiel.

& The Kaadian Way
The Kaadian Way, a long road winding throughout Soare's entirety, linking Ashoka, Morrim, and Soto together. It is neutral territory, somehow left unclaimed by the nations. All buildings found on its route are also considered neutral.

The Scattered Isles

& The Island of Angkar
Lying directly between Soare and Esiria in the Ocean of Diverging Waters are the tropical islands of the nation of Angkar. The bulk of the Angkarian population resides on the central island, where the cities of Ildri and Zedrin can be found. The surrounding islands are less populated and developed but still included. The result of this system is that Angkar's culture is very maritime, leading to her naval superiority over the nations of Soare. All of these islands are almost entirely covered in dense rainforest, which is split by roads, but only on the main island. Rather than using farms to feed the populace, the Angkarians have developed a way of cultivating and caring for the land to ensure that a lot of food is produced by the forest. This has allowed the cities and towns to grow to large sizes.

Angkarian culture is quite different from that of the countries in Soare, though the influence from communion with Soare has become evident. All the same, the Angkarians follow a complex polytheistic religion and have many social rituals that are foreign to visitors. Despite this dichotomy, Angkar is an important nation for the goods she provides, from seafood to coffee and spices, and, to the nations that have no laws against slavery, people.

Eulalia Astheroshe is the current Queen.

& Elenlond's Oceans
All of the ocean and sea forums are contained here. On the west side of Soare lies the Sedokai Ocean while on the east of the continent lies the Sea of Diverging Waters. Several interesting and diverse islands can be found across the various seas, many of which have only barely been explored. Even away from the islands there are wonders to be found, from unexplained magic to undiscovered and sometimes dangerous creatures.
