LOSS

After collecting the soul of the recently departed Dame, the second part of her task begun for a King had died, and his realm needed tending to. With his soul safely guided to the Eternal Realm, she returned and perched upon a fallen log. As large as an eagle, she was clearly unnatural, and she did not try to hide that fact.

"Verja," she said, her words echoing across Yavania. "Your King has departed, but life goes on. Who, if any, will take the throne?" Then, she waited to see who would come. Unlike Cyfton, she saw no reason to depart so quickly.

SUMMARY
The Verja is open to claiming! Characters need 40 posts to claim, unless they have a Leader Discount Pass, and they must be 2+ years old, unless they have a Youthful Leader Pass. The following is the order of inheritance: co-leader, heir, duke, baron. These characters have first dibs even if they do not show up first (though they must show up within 24 hours). Despite this, any creature (rouge or resident) may attempt to claim the Verja as their own. If no one has stepped up in 24 hours, the Verja will be disbanded.

It was unthinkable. His nephew… was gone? If it was Kulla come to disband the Verja, had Asger been given the same fate that he had seasons ago? The man hadn’t the knowledge that he had died. Thus, her voice only instilled anger.

He marched silently to the grove. Gandalf heaved a sigh to compose himself. Throwing a baby fit would get him nothing. Right now, he just wanted answers. In the most respectful way he could muster, given his annoyance with her decisions. But he wasn’t going to prostate himself before her. Straightening his back, he’d stare up on the log where the divine was perched.

”Kulla.” Gandalf began. Honestly, he didn’t know where he was going from that. Would she curse him for merely addressing him? ”May I inquire what this is about? Have you removed Asger as you did for others many moons ago?”

He couldn’t deny, he wished to have administration again. However, he knew full well those that could be opposed to it. It was best to leave just his questioning for now and see who else staked a claim to the throne.

RE: LOSS

He heard the words of the avatar and hung his head as he moved towards the claiming. He would step up. His emerald green eyes still a bit red from grief but he ignored it as he raised his head high. As he moved closer he saw Gandalf and listened to the males words. “Gandalf... She didn’t remove him, he has joined Avatar Kulla..” His words were shaky before he cleared his throat. Now was not the time to cry. He shook out his coat before puffing up his chest. “I found him in the grove malnourished and starved looking. I do not know how or why but when I found him, he was already gone..”

He then turned towards the avatar and dipped his head in greeting to Kulla. He’d been in the presence of avatars before but the size of Kulla always impressed him, even if she was the collector of souls. “Avatar, I do have a question, is he going to be ok?” It seemed an appropriate question to ask. He turned his gaze back to Gandalf wondering how the male would take the news..

Kulla found it strange how the mortals flocked to her, worried about their departed loved one as opposed to those who still lived.

The dead did not suffer.

"He is in a better place." That was all she could offer them. Hoping she'd offered them the comfort they sought, she took flight and disappeared into the nearest shadow - that of a tree. Gone was the Bringer of Death, back to the Eternal Realm.

Gandalf felt the color drain from his face. There was a moment where he just stared at Herleif in disbelief. It couldn't be true, he was mistaken. But then Kulla confirmed his fears.

Asger was dead.

Claiming the Verja was the farthest thing from his mind now. He had almost lost his mother, his brother. He had lost two sisters. But his nephew... seemed untouchable. They had their differences, but he had grown into a man. A Dame. It seemed the larger their clan got, the more tragedy that seemed to happen. Gandalf dropped slowly to lay on the ground, face still in shock. His chest was tight with grief. How would his fathers take this? How would the Kingdom? What was going to happen now?

'Cause this house of mine stands strong
Kulla’s call forced a frown upon the man’s face. Why so quick, he internally growled, moving forth on slow steps. Aurelius was still shaken by the loss of his brother, his chest tight much as before. Herleif and Gandalf were already around when he arrived, painted limbs trembling as he came to a halt. With a long breath, the man would activate negation upon himself, trying to stop at once the sadness he felt. It was worthless. Much as the avatar had said, it was time to go one. There was no longer a thing Aurelius could do about this.

“I, Aurelius Dame-Fritjov, would like to take on the legacy of my brother as king of the Verja. And," he paused, a tear rolling down his cheek, “I’d like Herleif Dame-Fritjov to take on the title of leader of Aldrnari. Should he agree, of course.”

During great part of his life, Aurelius saw as Herleif as unfit for the position of leader. With time, however, he grew to realize they were more similar than what he assumed. And, beyond that, Loki and Rai would be there to assist him should he let anything slip. He’d be okay.

Still shaking, the man would await the wolf's reply.

Oc: I’ll be posting Aur to Asger’s death thread soon <3

SPEECH





Aurelius wears a silver ring with the "Tiwaz" (warrior) rune carved to it on the second rightmost finger of his right paw. The spellsong can be found just to the left of it. A black leather bracelet can also be found on his fore-right ankle.

Herleif Dame-Fritjov
Settle down and listen to me

He listened as the Avatar spoke before disappearing. It was the best he was going to get and so he nodded his head. Asger was in a better place. It was all he could ever hope for. He watched Gandalf slowly lower himself to the ground and Herleif stepped forwards. He attempted to put his nose against Gandalf's right shoulder. He didn't know how to fix grief. He and Asger weren't that close but he was still family. He looked as Aurelius showed up and nodded his head. Sure he and Aurelius may not see eye to eye all that often but he needed him. They both did and he would try to be there for them.

When his nephew spoke of naming him King of Aldrnari and himself take up the throne of Verja his eyes went wide before he fixed his face. That was not something he expected. He hadn't expected Kulla to call for the claiming so soon but he would do what was best for the kingdom. "I will take your position as King of Aldrnari and you as King of the Verja. We will make your brother proud. He watches us now in the grace of Kulla." He spoke solemnly. Soon they would need to call a meeting but it would have to wait. The members of the kingdom needed to know. He just needed to get past losing a family member.

RE: LOSS

Rangvald walked, twin enabling his shadow (daemon) to walk beside him. He used jet to hit a tree as he passed, using magic to alleviate his boredom.

Then, the words of an Avatar hit his ears. Departed? Asger? 'Life goes on?' Why did that sound as if -- no. No, that couldn't be. He hurried, arriving in time to hear Herleif speak.

No.

Though he heard Aurelius' words, his proposition for King and Herleif's reply, he turned on heel and ran, searching frantically for his fallen son.

-timeskip to where Asger lies-


It was by sheer luck that he found Asger. As he approached, parse activated, attempting to gauge the emotional state of his remaining eldest son. Except, there was none, no activity even his magic could sense. A choked cry left his lips. Slam activated as he cried out, "No!" in denial, the words cutting into the earth. For his entire life, he'd believed that keeping a handle on his emotions was the only way to be a man...but all attempts to do so had failed for many seasons. He had been falling for so long, and now he felt as if he'd finally hit the bottom. Standing on the floor of a great canyon, unable to find a way up -- so far down that he couldn't see the light.

Rangvald collapsed beside his son, subzero chilling his skin. Worst of all, he mused, Castiel was not with him. No one is, that voice whispered inside of him. You're alone, as you should be.

Due to Subzero, Rangvald is uncomfortably cold to the touch -- like snow. He wears a simple silver ring etched with Old Norse runes, wears a golden ring with emeralds and sapphires, and also a silver-chain necklace with a black stone crown; wears a gold ring with square jade gems.

Note: Rangvald can be a horribly unpleasant fellow, but his bark is much worse than his bite. Please know that his opinions of others in no way reflects his roleplayer's thoughts or feelings.

Cayaarta Ubaxa


Cayaarta could not stay away from the cherry tree grove for too long, for she liked it far too much. She was mid run on her way there when the sight before her stopped her in her tracks. Far off in front of her from her point of view she saw a man running towards a tree and crying out “No!”. Her eyes open wide at the sight and she climbs up a tree quickly to get a better look, she spots a body lying on ground next to the man. “Oh no… someone this man cared for has died…I have to find flowers!” She jumps down from the tree and ran around looking for tulips. Even in the winter time tulips can grow plentiful and she just managed to find enough pink and purple tulips to fill her entire mouth. Even though she grew up on the savannah she loved to learn about the meaning behind flowers. She knew the message she wanted to send, pink tulips for good wishes, purple was for rebirth, she wanted to wish his soul safe travels and to maybe be reborn again. She was unaware if the man believed in such things, but hoped that he would not mind. She re-approached the man slowly as to not intrude rudely. Her ears pointed down in a forlorn way and she slowly approached the deceased. She looked at him and realized he looked similar the grieving man. They must be related. She placed the tulips next to the body and spoke to the deceased, her head bowed in respect, “Dagaal Cajiib ah. Naftaada ha iska nasato. Si fiican ayaad u xusuustaa.” She accidently activated Glow as she said those words, he body glowed softly in the heavy atmosphere. She turned to the male to her right that had yelled out earlier, he looked like his heart was shattered. Cayaarta could not help but tear up at the sight, she spoke again softly this time directing her words this time at the grieving family member, "May his soul find the peace it longs for. Please… let me know if I may help you at all in this hard time.” She bowed her head again in respects to the male and backed away a good twenty feet, enough to give him the space he may need, yet be close enough to offer comfort if needed, she sat down quietly with her head facing the ground.

"She talks."“She thinks.”“She does.” “Her Magic.”

STAFF NOTE :

Greetings, roleplayers!

There appears to be a confusion regarding the temperatures of Yavania’s lands. For snow to fall and remain on the ground, a temperature of 15-30 F would be required. Temperatures in the Cherry Blossom Grobe range from 55-65 F. Thus, it’d be impossible for Cayaarta to “sit in the snow.” For more info, check out the Geography Guide.

Please remove any and all mentions of snow in this thread. This thread is not on hold and may continue. <3
