Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new universe, this new world, and give it purpose. (Our site is best viewed in Firefox or Chrome.)

Events

It's the most wonderful
time of the year- meaning, the time of Delibird gifts and of winter festivals! And as always, our plot events are still going strong.

Season

winter will be here until
March. Aside from the western Great Forest, which is too warm, and the Desert Strip, which is too dry, snow begins to fall across the region. The chill of the season has just about every area firmly in its grasp. Ice and Dark types become more common as the temperature drops and the daylight fades.

A gentle snow was beginning to fall as the festival-goers began gathering for the final official event of the day. Benches, which were no more than driftwood balanced on rocks or bricks and then draped over with thin cloth dyed in reds and golds, were staggered about the beach. The people were separated into groups of a manageable size, with a peace officer or other member of Beta's organization assigned to run each group's event.

As luck would have it, Beta himself was in charge of this group. The older man's joints protested the chilly weather somewhat, but he still moved with confident poise and a fluidity that was uncommon for a man who was nearly seventy years old. He approached and greeted those who were ushered his way with a small smile- not an easy smile, as he was not one who was particularly used to entertaining large groups of unfamiliar people, but a sincere, if uncomfortable smile- and in his deep voice bid them sit on one of the quaint benches as he handed them a simply and cleanly wrapped gift, each identical to the last.

Whenever he had an opportunity to pause, stand quietly, and observe, he would. He would listen to the waves crash and rush onto the sandy beach, melting the few gentle snowflakes that had landed to close to the coast, and the crystalline formations would meld and become one with the cool, dark sea. Crater City stood not far away, its newly improved walls standing proud and erect, roofs peeking up from behind the defensive structure. Smoke spiraled lazily upward from the many inhabited homes that stood protected behind the walls. In another direction, a couple storehouses and a dock stood on the beach and reached out into the ocean, a sign of his people's determination and resourcefulness as they reached their grasp out into the unknown and attempted to tame it. In the distance, snow-capped hills formed the easterly horizon.

Beta was confident that there wasn't anything more beautiful in all of Terrene than Crater City's bay in the winter. It filled him with pride, but also with a sense of longing and heartache, as this season always did. He breathed in deeply, pulling the emotions deeper within him, and returned to his duties. He had a festival to host, after all.

(This is the official white elephant gift exchange thread! Beta is greeting people and handing out gifts. Post to bring your character in, sit them down, chat, whatever you like! If you have questions, let me know.)

[egg:6]

This was a cold season, but Cynth could say quite honestly that she enjoyed it. It was her first winter here- her first winter ever if her memory was to be believed, though she knew it wasn't- and it was an enjoyable experience. She heard that Ashfield never got snow, but here in Crater, the snow fell regularly during this season. And it was... stunning. Snow capping the hills and the distant mountains, snow blanketing the plains in a thick white blanket. It was truly magical.

There was less to do at this little "winter festival" than there had been at the Anniversary Fair in Ashfield, but this quaint gathering had a different feel to it. It was... cozy. Cheery, but in a quiet, comfortable way. It felt sort of unfair or unreasonable to compare this more peaceful, thoughtful event to the crowded, loud energy of Ashfield's yearly fair. Even the weather of the season itself seemed to lend a hush to the world, as if encouraging everyone to slow down, calm down, relax.

Or maybe it was just her. Trick certainly didn't seem to want to calm down any. The season made him restless and even grouchier than usual. He was off running around somewhere, burning off his excess energy.

Cynth, though, was looking forward to a relaxed affair here. This white elephant gift thing seemed to be a great idea- donating what you didn't have use for, in hopes that whoever ended up with it could find more use to it. And, maybe she'd end up leaving here with something useful for herself, as well!

She had been ushered in and led to a seat by a man that she hadn't recognized, at first- but now, after sitting on the bench for a couple of minutes and watching him move around the area, talking to people and organizing the event... She wondered if it was Beta. She knew the name of the man who was in charge of the city, but she had never seen him before. If this was him, he was... older than she had pictured, though she supposed his greater age made sense, because she stories she had heard had said that he had been in Terrene since before Ashfield was built. She wasn't sure she believed all the stories she'd been told about him, but she had to admit that, if this was him, he definitely had a presence about him and a certain charisma to him.

Brushing those thoughts aside for now, she readjusted the egg on her lap and looked at those more closely surrounding her, the others who had been ushered into this particular area for the white elephant event. Perhaps there would be some familiar faces?
