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.

    Unter friedlichen Umständen fällt der kriegerische Mensch über sich selber her.

    Hello fair people of Elenlond! We have many exciting updates for you on this fine spring day! First, let’s talk about…

    The Coliseum
    By the suggestion of the fabulous Lotte and thanks to the industrious efforts of Dnan, we have a fun new method of spicing up your characters’ lives! With the simple recitation of an incantation, your character can be abruptly transported to Agrippa Dabooti’s Marvelous Muscle Emporium, where they have the opportunity to test their strength against other fine fighters from around the globe! Collect points to which can be turned into bonus abilities, garner fame and fortune and, most important of all, don’t die! If you’d like to get involved, check out the rules for further information.

    Oh, but I forgot to mention that The Coliseum is a recent construction in the beautiful new city of…

    Mondragón
    After several years of construction, Queen Eulalia Ashtaroshe’s project to restore the ancient city of Mondragón has been completed. Once the site of the opulent reign of the old king of the outer Luin Isles, this city has been remade into a hub for learning and culture, complete with an Academy that is sure to rival the one in The City of Oracles. You could be the first, or second, to start a thread in Angkar’s newest city!

    Meanwhile, in Soto…
    The tides of the war have turned. After several long months of starvation, Reine has thrown off the chains of its siege. The Angkarian fleet has broken the blockade that prevented Reine from using its ports and, soon after, the Reineans have routed the forces surrounding the city. Now that both Méadaigh’s perspective and the Sotoans’ perspective have been covered in the latter thread, everyone is welcome to post in it. We’re trying to keep things succinct so we can move onto an even bigger and better battle, so we encourage people to make 1-2 posts generally covering their character’s experience of the battle. Though the ultimate outcome of this battle had been determined, you still have the opportunity to influence how the Sotoans win.

    Now I’m sure you’re wondering what that big battle is going to be about. Well, while the Reinean army marches after the retreating forest folk, the forces at Zauber Mansion have united with those of Viktor Zauber’s aunt Morwenna. They now know of the Reineans’ attempt to break from the siege and must decide what to do next…

    But, really, if you want to learn more in detail about the goings on in Soto and around the continent, you should just check out….

    The Town Crier
    That’s right, another issue of the Town Crier is out! Be sure to read it closely, as it covers several exciting events taking place around the world. Much thanks to Dnan to putting it together!


    Also, there’s new OTMs!
    Be sure to congratulate Qayin for snagging the character OTM and also check out Icare, between Izzy and Lotte, which won Thread of the Moment!

    Now, I must mention one more thing before I go:

    Upcoming Activity Check
    We’re well overdue for an Activity Check, so this is just a heads up that you should expect our next announcement will include an Activity Check!
