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!

Something has happened!
Welcome to Summer, Eternal Year 2!

  • Weather:
    The frigidity and harshness of winter is long forgotten as spring becomes summer, and the heat descends into every corner of both Sol and Noc. The air is humid and thick with the humming of various insects, renewed by the luscious vegetation and fertile soil. Though it can be unbearably hot, particularly in Blackrock and Prismacove, an unusual amount of rain will fall throughout the length of the season, particularly later in the day - giving reprieve from the heat. Aya has brought forth the monsoons, and each day in the afternoon, thick rainclouds will descend, and douse the territories. While rain will undoubtedly reach as north as Scarwood, it is Gleamleaf and Astraldune that will bear the brunt of it, and reap the beauty of life that the fallen rain will leave behind.

  • Breeding:
    75% success rate and 15% chance of defect
Spring, Eternal Year 2: A Synopsis

  • Since Eternal's soft opening on January 13th, we have welcomed 30 players and 60 wonderful brainchildren!

  • The Quest for Frostridge is coming to a close - who will take the reins?

  • @Helios hid a plethora of vials all around Eternal, resulting in some fun effects for  scavenger participants! It was Eternal's first scavenger hunt!

  • @ Grimdark disappeared into the dark depths of the ocean, and Gleamleaf has become an unclaimed common land - will he rise again to take the glowing rainforest as his own?

Common Land Competition

Eternal's first competition was unveiled during the Spring season! The most active island from Spring, Year 1 to Summer, Year 2 will be creating a common land of their very own. All rules for the competition can be found here! Here are the current standings for the end of the first year:
  • Sol had a total of 61 posts for the Winter season! Added on to the 23 points from Spring, 89 points from Summer, and the 62 points from Autumn, and the 16 points from Winter, that brings Sol's total to 251 points!

  • Noc had a total of 35 posts for the Spring season! Added on to the 43 points from Spring, the 49 points from Summer, and the 43 points from Autumn, and the 11 points from Winter, that brings Noc's final total to 181 points!

  • Sol is the winner! Congratulations to all of the inhabitants of Sol; you get to create a common land (similar to Eventide, and Sunsteppe) that will exist solely in Sol!

  • This common land is completely up to the inhabitants of Sol. Aya, Helios and Imbris will create it to fit your vision. All members on the site may submit their ideas, which all members will then vote on, followed by a name vote. Please go here to submit your ideas!

Of the Month Nominations Reminder

  • We will no longer have "Of the Month" nominations - it will be "of the Year" nominations!
    • By extending the time period to four months (one full Eternal year), players will be able to more extensively develop their relationships, their characters and their threads before nominations and voting begins. Those who won "Of the Month" distinctions will still keep their badges and prizes, but those nominated in the future will be given "Of the Year" badges. Furthermore, the prizes will be bigger and better!
  • Nominations will open in August.
  • Each player may make one nomination for each category ─ Character, Couple, and Thread of the Month.
  • Please do not nominate or vote for your own character for Character or Couple of the Month! However, voting for a Thread of the Month that includes a character of your own is acceptable.
  • Voting will open in September.
  • The same character, couple, or thread cannot win in back-to-back years.
  • Couples do not need to be romantic relationships (though, obviously, they can be).
  • If someone else has already nominated the Character, Couple, or Thread that you wanted to nominate, you do not need to nominate the same entity a second time! They will already be added to the voting list for you to vote on!
  • The bonus point reward for voting for each OTM category will be increased to 10 points and will automatically added to account belonging to the character of your choice at the end of the voting period.
The winners of each Of the Year category will be awarded with 50 points, a prize choice, and a profile badge!
