Eternal
Information
summer, year 3
Thick ice and continuously falling snow blanket the entirety of Eternal, brought upon by Noc's wrath. Shelter is scarce, and food even scarcer. There is no climate or biome that was lucky enough to find themselves safe from the beginnings of the Ice Age and so the residents of Eternal must don their primal survival instincts and to just that ─ survive. Ice blockages have grown supernaturally between the islands, blocking Sunsteppe from Sol and Eventide from Noc, effectively trapping each islander on whichever island they currently stand. The Dragonfrost and dusk leopards from Gleamleaf and greater boreus deer from Mountainfade have seeped into all of Noc, Eventide's spectors and Sunsteppe's sculptors have overrun the central island, and the wolves, Ice Piskys, and Creeping Thistle have invaded all of Sol.
OOC announcements
10.12.18 Noc has descended from the stars, and the reunion with his children, the three deities, is anything but happy. The whole of Eternal has been plunged into an Ice Age, and it seems that, for now, it's up to the deities to restore the islands. Will they be able to do so quickly enough? Or will the residents of Eternal know suffering because of the mishaps spread between Helios, Imbris, and Aya? For now, ice blockages have been erected between the islands, meaning that everyone is stuck where they currently are. Where is your character? Tell us here.

10.4.18 Whatever unknown thing that invaded the southern territories in the middle of spring has snaked its icy fingers out and enveloped those remaining territories that everyone had believed (or hoped) to be safe. Wolves, Creeping Thistle, Pesky Piskys, Blackrock's river... Not even Sunsteppe is safe from the intrusion, though it appears -- at least for now -- that the Wreckage remains untouched. Perhaps it should be investigated?

9.17.18 Something isn't right. Eternal still refuses to warm, even as we progress through spring and near summer. The southernmost territories have begun to notice some changes: from Greater Boreus Deer in Mountainfade, to Dragonfrost in Gleamleaf; frozen sandstorms in Astraldune, and even icy wraiths in Eventide. What happened? And what can be done to return the islands to normal?

9.2.18 Springtime has come, but the frigid winter still remains, enveloping the three islands in ice, snow and brutal wind. There are no flowers, nor grass - no foliage at all. The animals are beginning to suffer, as they emerge from hibernation or birth their young, struggling to find sustenance. The air is thick with tension, as a wretched and unforgiving storm brews still in the distance - will Eternal find reprieve from the cold?

8.4.18 Round Three of the To Lands of Old quest has been posted! The remaining participants have one week to get their posts in. Good luck and have fun!

7.27.18 Astraldune is under new leadership! In the wake of Solomon's disappearance, Helios has placed Gryffen into leadership!

6.26.18 Helios has appeared in Sunsteppe! What could he be doing there?

6.19.18 With magic from Imbris, Totem has been gifted with a daughter of her own, molded from clay and infused with a piece of her own soul. Make sure to check out the thread here!

6.1.18: Welcome to Summer!

5.26.18: The Grotto has been unveiled! Imbris paid a visit to Nymphetamine in Prismacove and led him on an underwater adventure to the Grotto, effectively creating a new sub-board for the residents of Prismacove to explore!

Appearance
Grimdark is a large stocky male who is covered in barnacles, and almost constantly seems to have a layer of sea salt caked on his hide. He is a silver bay roan, with a copper colored face, grey body, and bay copper colored legs. His eyes are a pewter grey. His mane and tail colored brown with streaks of white, are nearly always messy, tangled, or tattered with split ends. He usually smells like the sea, and is covered in sand.


Kraken Physiology [Advanced]:
- Aquatic Adaptation
- Elasticity
- Bioluminescence
- Tidal Wave Generation
- Poison Generation

Dynamic Camouflage:
The user can visually blend into surroundings by blending in with the coloration and form of their background to avoid optical perception.
Personality
Grim is very selfish. He grew up alone, away from his mother and twin sister, and chose instead to live a life of solitude on an inland river delta. It was there he learned to swim. He does not have a sense of deference for royalty or authority, though he himself was born a prince. He does not know who his father is, but he knows he loves the sea. He is a pirate of sorts, and is often found lingering near the beaches.
History
Born on a tropical island to an absent mother and father, and a dissociative twin, Grimdark left his family as soon as he was old enough to be weaned. He lived alone on an inland river delta for several years with minimal contact, before following the beaches to a kingdom that started his journey. He met Isobell there, who was the leader of the kingdom, and he made a journey across the land, before meeting another girl there that intrigued him. Having met women that intrigued him, he ended up taking a journey back at the island where he was born, to try and make amends with his mother. Not long after he reaches the island, Isobell arrives, and there is a storm... both were washed away while they were having an argument about something.
And now.... they are washed up together in Eternal. What will happen next?
Abilities

Tier 1:

ABILITY NAME: Kraken Physiology
LEVEL: Advanced
DESCRIPTION: This is the ability to transform into a kraken, a sea monster with multiple limbs, a beak (toothless), suction grip, and stronger than average strength, with a body measuring no longer than 10ft in length.
OBTAINED: January 13, 2018 [Spring, Year 1] Blessed by Imbris
ATTRIBUTES?: Aquatic Adaptation, Elasticity, Bioluminescence, Tidal Wave Generation, Poison Generation
NOTES:

Tier 2:

ABILITY NAME: Dragon Vision
LEVEL: Intermediate
DESCRIPTION: The user will be able to utilize the enhanced vision of a dragon. This includes tracking items at faster speeds than the normal eye, seeing farther distances, seeing more vibrant colors, seeing more clearly in the dark and infrared vision.
OBTAINED: June 3, 2018 [Summer, Year 2]; September 17, 2018 [Intermediate; Spring, Year 3] - Purchased
ATTRIBUTES?: Predator's Mindset
NOTES: At the intermediate level, the user will notice less fatigue. Migraines can still occur with overexertion, but they will be very infrequent. At this level, the user will be able to maintain the use of dragon vision for prolonged periods of time and will notice that his/her/their baseline vision will be much better than it was at the beginner level. Even without the express use of this ability, the user will be able to see double the distance of someone with impressive normal eyesight. The user will be able to track other living creatures with easy from great distances and will eventually develop a "predator's mindset", meaning that it will be easier to deduce where the user's prey is going, and how quickly they will be able to get there.

Tier 3:

ABILITY NAME: Dynamic Camouflage
DESCRIPTION: Also known as the Chameleon Effect. The user can visually blend into surroundings by blending in with the coloration and form of their background to avoid optical perception
NOTES: This ability is awarded at the Advanced level. No additional upgrading is required

DESCRIPTION: The companion animal was obtained during Grimdark's quest to find the heart of Imbris, his goal to gain more power to try and gain clairity as to why he was not enough for Isobell - little did he know how much power he would recieve in return, or how much of a pain in the ass Hoh-Ohk would become. But he loves his shrimp companion, and though the shrimp is an ornery soul, he feels the same about his Kraken companion.
