11 AR

Angkar: Dry season. Often sunny, but precipitation is rare. Humidity is low, some bodies of water may have dried up, and bushfires can occur. The rainforest sees evenly distributed rainfall throughout the season.

Ashoka: Desert: Cooler temperatures, although still relatively hot. Violent, heavy downpours following long dryspells. Jungle: Hot and humid with frequent, violent rainstorms.

Morrim: Cool, wet, and windy, rain is common, although snow is, on the whole, infrequent (there may, however, be some seemingly random snow storms) in the interior, and any snow that accumulates along the coast quickly disappears. Early in the season it is very stormy, wet, and windy, while the end of the season is characterized by less wind, less precipitation, and lower temperatures. Towards the mountains heavy snowfall is quite frequent and the temperatures drop significantly.

Soto: Covered in anywhere from a foot to four or five feet of snow, Soto is very cold. Windchills are common and can severely drop the temperature at times. Deciduous trees have no leaves while coniferous trees continue to bear needles. Slow or still bodies of water have frozen over.

WHAT IS ELENLOND?

Elenlond is an original free-form medieval fantasy RPG set on the continent of Soare and the Scattered Isles, which are 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.

  • CURRENT EVENTS

    Angkar: To honour the reinvigoration of the ancient city of Mondrágon, the majestic Queen Eulalia has permitted the opening of a Coliseum where people from around the world and all walks of life can test their combat skills against one another. Many have already done battle in search of honour, glory, prizes and money.

    Ashoka: In an otherwise peaceful times, Ashokans are beset with the relatively minor inconveniences of wandering undead and occasionally-aggressive giant rock worms. There has also been some controversy over the recent re-legalisation of human sacrifice.

    Morrim: Rumour has it that Emperor Leofric de Hollemark is mustering forces for a war. Though the threat from Soto’s forests has passed, the forces previously employed in watching the forest now linger at the border. Rumours also circulate of a small group that has been dispatched to make contact with the tribes of the Do’suul Mountains.

    Soto: The Sotoans have defeated the fey and liberated themselves from Méadaigh’s oppression! Preliminary efforts have been made at rebuilding the city of Madrid, which had been captured at the beginning of the war. However, the Sotoans are hindered from recovery famine. Méadaigh’s magic caused summer to persist in the Erth’netora Forest through the winter. Her power has been withdrawn and the plants die as if preparing for winter – even though it is now summer. The Sotoans must sustain off what food they can get, what creatures they can kill and what can be imported into the city from Morrim and Angkar.

    The winter to seems to have lasted forever, but spring is breathing its first breaths across the land, bringing with it the start of a new year, 11AR. In Morrim, melting of snow brings a welcome relief and a promise of bounty and beauty. Dormant life stirs under the warming earth, waiting for the right moment to burst forth. Though balmy winds blow across the Plains of Aeril, the peaks of Do'suul still wear their white mantles and little patches of snow can still be found in the shadows of Orl'kabbar. Whether or not this is a false spring is anyone's bet.

    For Soto, the coming of spring provides no definite relief. After a summer which has absurdly extended by the invading Méadaigh's powers, the trees are just now dropping their leaves. Thus, though the bitter cold is finally lifting, a true winter has just begun for the besieged Sotoans. However, this belated autumn is a clear indication that Méadaigh's power is failing. Plans are hatching in Reine to break the siege that has pinned them for so long, while those at Zauber Mansion wait for the perfect circumstances to re-take Madrid.

    Of course, the change of season is not palpable to the other two nations. In Angkar, the dry season drags on, with months to go until the clouds return, bringing their blessed load of rain. The Ashokans meanwhile continue to enjoy cool weather and the occasional thunderstorm – a welcome respite from the sweltering heat of the warmer months.

    Now, you are surely wondering what is happening with the site itself?

    The first thing to announce is that we have raised several people to the position of Plotter – Calli, Qayin, Seian, AD and Mel. The staff have decided to change our approach to this position, which was previously permanent and reserved for individuals who were supposed to foster plots on the site. However, since we have plots bubbling up seemingly anywhere we look, we decided that the Plotter position be temporary and be used primarily to foster communication about plots. AD is the only exception here – he will be keeping the position permanently because, let's be honest, he gets involved in everything anyways. (:

    So, in the future, if you have a big plot in mind that will alter the course of Elenlond's history, please talk to the staff about becoming a plotter!

    We also have big advancements coming in the Soto plot, if that wasn't obvious from the above. Keep an eye out in the Announcements section for that next big step, which will come along with a Current Events update and new OTMs!

    In the meantime, you may well want to entertain yourself with Hiram Jollenbeck's sovereign party[/i], which is just the beginning in some changes that are coming to Orl'kabbar.
