SUMMER

Angkar: Wet season. Precipitation is common during the late afternoon and evening hours. Vegetation grows significantly during the summer, but flooding is a danger due to the monsoons that ravage the country. The rainforest sees evenly distributed rainfall throughout the season.

Ashoka: Desert: Extremely hot and dry. Violent, heavy downpours following long dryspells. Jungle: Hot and humid with frequent, violent rainstorms.

Morrim: Relatively hot and dry, but with a chance of thunderstorms from time to time. The heat may cause forest fires.

Soto: Hot and humid, tree cover is dense while ground growth is restricted. Thunderstorms see the most amount of rainfall during the season, and it can be very windy. On occasion, there are flash floods that can destroy homes and farms built on flood plains.

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 refugee crisis is heating up as the War progresses. Impending gloom, unbeknownst to the titular character, is approaching. Try whatever. mystery, triads, mobs, lawless fun, a chat or a fight.

    Deluded Eyes
    Madrid, Soto

    Skith, currently calling herself Miss Pollaia, has opened a business where she removes traumatic memories. Sometimes she doesn't ask to be paid for her services – so what is she getting out of it? We all know this girl wouldn't do anything out of the goodness of her heart.

    If anyone wants to join but needs me to add a better hook to the end I can do so!

    Morrim

    Not far off the border of Morrim on an adjoining road off the Kaadian Way, some apparently batshit woman holds up a merchant caravan with the aim of highway robbery. Are you travelling with the caravan for safety after the recent threat of the Fae in Soto? Or maybe you just happened unluckily upon the scene?

    This pantsless robber intends to rob y'all blind and get away with it too! Whachu gon' do 'bout it?

    A Gleam in the Shallows
    Angkar - One of the nearby smaller islands

    A giant stands in the shallows, muttering and picking the shoreline in the middle of the night. Milk is hunting for pearls as a meager way to repay the kindness of the residents of the small fishing village nearby. Well...he seems friendly enough.

    Trouble with a capital T
    Orionopolis

    A stranger walks the halls of Orionopolis, looking for...something. Or perhaps someone. Unfortunately he's picked up a straggling servant and roped him into a 'tour', in which he goes where he wants while the poor man grows increasingly agitated and follows on behind. He seems genuinely interested in the history of the building however...when they turn a corner leading in the direction of the cells and encounter...you.

    These people aren't supposed to be here. What do you do? Are you here, lost as well? Are you escaped from the cells? A roaming servant, inquisitor, or palace official? What are you doing here, and how do you deal with a man throwing himself at your feet?

    How does it feel...to be powerful?

    A Stronghold from the Dreams of Children
    Madrid

    After the war, children wander the streets, parentless. Some are taken in by relatives or orphanages, but others slip through the cracks. In a starving city, can we find a way to ensure the survival of the society's youngest? Come explore the reconstruction of Soto, with a focus on the human element. Unlimited number of posters. Feel free to have random additional children wander in.

    Devin


    Spoils of War
    Soto
    Devin is hired along with 2 other mercenaries to capture a forest elemental. The group stops by a town and proceeds to slaughter the townspeople and steal their food storages. What will you do? Join them in pillaging, try to get a share of gold by tracking down an elemental, or try to stop them in the name of justice? Either way, I'm looking for some good ol' action, fighting, grit, etc. ;D

    Reine, Soto

    Come for the coverage of how Soto, specifically the Reinean economy and refugee crisis, are going, stay for the barrel of beer that rolls down the street, nearly crushing the now ultra-famous Aniketos Hesperés! Your character could be the person who saves him and gets offered a persimmon, or they could be someone else entirely – maybe they're having fun in a sort of beer slip-and-slide situation.

    Crash Landing
    The Kaadian Way
    Ioubal, an unhappy visitor to this realm with a mission, has crash landed somewhere along the Morrim side of the Kaadian. They're injured, which means that you could kick them while they're down, but I wouldn't be opposed if you wanted to help them, either. One joiner is probably optimal, but two would be fine.

    Sacrum Sanguinem
    Etruria

    During a human sacrifice at a temple in Etruria, something goes terribly wrong. Will you be a victim? One of the perpetrators? A guard, a terrified onlooker? Whose side are you on, anyway? I'd like this to be a pretty action-oriented thread, so smol replies are welcome!

    Have fun. ;D

    Raine is spending another night on the run, and she decides to set up camp as it gets late in Erth'netora Forest. 2 other characters that are patient and good with fighting, killing and gore would be great.

    Mari has taken on one of Ylsa's cases, which involves a mother and small child apparently plagued by something only the daughter can see -- but which she refuses to talk about.
