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!

PHASE TWO: THE SCULPTORS

Morning comes, grey-lavender, hemmed with the bright tangerine of the sun. The winds that come blowing off of the ocean are bitter and hateful. As if overnight, rime has crawled up the stalks of saltbrush and seagrass, leaving them white and rigid, glittering in the sun and moonlight. The waxen beaches become frosty; the froth of the tides freeze, strange and knurled, adorned with kelp and starfish.

After a few hours, the fingers of ice begin to extend their grasp ‒ by dusk, the ocean itself is frozen solid about thirty feet out, though be warned, the further you tread, the thinner the ice. Overnight, the still, expectant sky unleashes its payload of snow ‒ at least a foot of fresh, white powder glints in the sunrise. But that is not all. Horses who wander across this bitter-cold wonderland will no doubt stumble upon some strange signs of something… well, rather strange afoot…

Pressed into fresh patches of snow are many footprints ‒ like a bear’s, but skinnier and longer, with six digits and no signs of hooked claws. They meander about, crisscrossing the open valley and ocean ice. Every morning, the remains of small campfire are found, some still smoking, small rocks arranged around the glowing embers.

Did they come from the ocean? From the ground? From the sky, floating down alongside the flakes of fat snow? Nobody knows, but one thing becomes abundantly clear ‒ whatever they are, they’re rather artistic folk. Here and there, ice sculptures and snowmen pop up, about two feet in height ‒ sand dollars, shells and jewels used to decorate the eyes, noses and mouths; encrusting the elaborate creations.

Some swear on their mother’s bones to have caught a glimpse: small figures (all agree, they are small) rushing behind mounds of snowed-over tussock and rock outcroppings. Bearded, some say; hairy, from head to toe!; they seem to wear woolen caps on their heads…

Who are they? What are they?
What do they want from us?

Will you try to crack this great mystery? Or simply enjoy the peculiar displays, weather permitting…
