Welcome Guest,
Pardon our ads; they're necessary to keep this site running. Thank you for your understanding! Many sites boast a wonderful memberbase, but here at Yavania we pride ourselves on our community. We work hard to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making sure every member and guest is greeted and included in the fun, both OC and IC. Our staff is active, friendly, and almost always available. We are a sandbox roleplay, but we have many sitewide events to spice things up! We have very few limitations when it comes to character creation, and New Members get a huge bonus! We offer a vast spectrum of free-to-play creatures, including but not limited to wolves, lions, hyenas, panda bears, wild dogs, clouded leopards, ball pythons, and eagles! Check out our Overview Guide and Character Creation to see what other species you can play! If the magic system seems overwhelming, don't worry. You do not have to build a character with magic. If you want to, however, we're available to help! Just drop into cbox. ♥

RE: [M] Welcome to This Day

Kallisto Ariadne Lykaios

DON'T TELL ME I'M OVERREACTING WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL I'VE BEEN THROUGH


Kallisto remained where she was. There was nothing else to do or at least anything she knew how to do. There was no magic for her to use to somehow see in there. It was too dangerous to go in her. Through narrowed eyes, she glanced around. Flattened ears listening for anything inside the darkness. Bent legs and widened stance kept her secured where she was at. Erect hackles danced, lips wrinkled, and jaws parted to bite. Head was lowered to protect her neck in case anything came flying out of the darkness to bite her, somehow. Long nails helped her with the mucky ground as she kept a close watch on everything around them.

It was irritating how she was not able to do her job. She had to be protecting the realm, not standing to the side and watching. She just didn't know what to do besides stand there and watch. "We're all out here if they try to flee." Maybe some reassurance? Maybe not. Maybe it was just frustration getting through how much she wanted to sink her teeth in this guy.

-2 | unrealistic attack - I see what caused the confusion here. 10 feet wide =/= a 10 foot diameter. A circle with a 5 foot diameter has a larger perimeter than 10 feet. Math! Mucho confusion. Dome, level 10 kinetic, could easily do this.

-1 | attack lacks important detail or clarity - I'm a little confused on where barrier is being placed. Remember that shroud has a 5 foot radius (and a 10 foot diameter). Also, what side is he attacking from?

-2 | 4 defenses missing (claws, tail, wrinkled maw, head lowered)

-1 | semi-realistic damage - Even though shroud was not used against her, she should still see it in this round and react to it which, technically, would make ignite fail (as she would be casting it into darkness at this point; see below).

-2 | powerplaying - "...Crowley would come to her explaining the wolf upon the borders." I'm very sorry for this deduction, as Silver accidentally led you into it. However, the spar guide says, "Permission to powerplay cannot be granted in a spar by anyone; not staff and not your fellow spar partners." This is spar strike 1/2.

Note: This spar post was had to judge. You're having Akeela act as though Damian hasn't made his attack yet, but he has. Shroud is currently active because Damian activated it in his R1 spar post. My opinion is that you would have been better off having Akeela come in the moment before shroud takes affect and reacting to it that way. Hope this helps for future spar posts!
Move 2 (7.5)
-1.5 | 3 defenses missing (claws, tail, wrinkled maw)

-1 | attack does not fit spar type - Defending Perses would be physically intervening or, at least, verbally threatening his opponent.

Note: I've already taken off for misunderstanding when shroud began, so I won't do so again. <3

-2 | powerplaying - "The crow, whom he had missed take off moments or minutes before, had returned to the blakc and white wolf's shoulder..." Only Silver can say what the crow would be doing if and when it returned. This is spar strike 1/2.

-1 | semi-realistic damage - Even though shroud was not used against him, he should still see it in this round and react to it.

-1 | attack lacks important detail or clarity - Where was Ventriloquism aimed?

-1 | attack does not fit spar type - Defending Perses would be physically intervening or, at least, verbally threatening his opponent.
Move 2 (N/A)

-2 | metagaming - Where is the reasoning behind Fang assuming that shroud was used by Damian and not Perses? You have to explain your reasoning. Read Akeela's post for an example. :) This is spar strike 2/2, and Fang has now defaulted this spar.

-1 | attack does not fit spar type - Defending Perses would be physically intervening or, at least, verbally threatening his opponent.

Bonus Total: 6
Move 1 (09)
-0 | all defenses mentioned/set

-1 | semi-realistic damage - Since Damian is aiming to bite the jewelry, the damage taken should be mentioned as a bite rather than just saying, "The black shadow (Damian) would hit his shoulder (if he hit)." This is an important distinction.

Note: Almost a perfect spar post until the end!
Move 2 (08)
-0 | all defenses set

-1 | damage lacks important detail or clarity - "The water splashed on the right side of Perses's face (Condense) and since his eyes were open, the water might get into his eyes." Well, did the water get into his eye or not? YOU decide the damage Perses takes, and you need to do so clearly.

-1 | attack lacks important detail or clarity - If you were trying to have Perses leap out of shroud, that needed to be stated in Perses post itself. Not an OC note. You should have decided in the post if he escaped it or not, rather than leaving it up for everyone to interpret.

Verdict: As the points show, Damian is the winner and may take possession of the jewelry in question.

I hope my tips and feedback were helpful! :D I checked with other staffers about the spar type deductions, btw, as I wasn't comfortable taking off at first. <3

RE: [M] Welcome to This Day


☠ Damian ☠

I've been watching, I've been waiting
In the shadows for my time


Several things happened at once. One: his jaws missed the intended target again. Even if he managed to get a bite, he'd immediately let go because it wasn't what he wanted. Two: the consistent screams from outside of the shroud continued and he really wondered if they were merely pretending to be worried for their supposed comrade. Three: five stones came rushing at him. Four: he was getting really ticked off about the fact that he kept missing his intend target. Five: would they really just shut up? Was that too much to ask? He was afraid that it was. The stones that came barreling at him caused the wild dog to move away from the incoming missiles. Unfortunately, he wasn't quite fast enough to avoid all of them. The only one that managed to hit him on the right shoulder (as he had moved toward his left) as the others whizzed past him. Damian didn't even bother to stop to consider that a bruise might form, his training allowing him to make such decisions. He was as durable as one could get.

Just in that moment, both the barrier and shroud would fall, revealing a wild dog with various shades of black across his body. His eyes were narrowed as he pushed himself forward, uncaring that he was out in the open. He was hardly afraid of getting out of his shadows. They merely helped in his ninja-ing.

His hackles were raised as he pushed himself toward the wolf once more. No longer playing games, the wild dog would reach out as he approached on the right side of the wolf to grasp the silver necklace. Metal touched against his tongue as he'd continue his momentum forward, pulling the chain cleanly off the wolf. His lips were peeled into a smirk, the chain safely trapped in his closed jaws. With a hard earned prize in his mouth, the wild dog would turn one hundred eighty degrees so he was facing back the way he had came. He used shroud once more as cover, the darkness descending upon him as he believed that the others would merely be too afraid to enter his domain of darkness and cold. They had already shown that, hadn't they? He paused for a mere second, lowering his head as he opened his jaws to let the necklace fall to the ground. Nudging it with his nose and doing some slight maneuvering, the dog finally got it around his neck.

It nestled against his chest as he shook himself out. Heading toward the far end of the diameter of his shroud, Damian moved with caution, returning back to being stealthy. He stretched his front legs out for a mere second before he got his paws underneath him. He started to run, making sure he moved with as much caution as he could, his tail stretched out behind him for balance as his momentum would pick up his speed to 73 mph. He'd already been fast because of agile and specimen and using his magic was clearly overkill. But did Damian care about such things? Nope, he did not.

Untraceable would allow him to run without care of his paw prints being left for someone to track him. He didn't think it was something that the cowards would be able to do but, you never know, maybe a coward would surprise him one day.

Everything around her was happening so fast, it seemed like a blur. One seconded Perses and his attacker were surrounded in darkness, and the next it was all gone. She saw the small dog, for a split second, before he was running. In his jaws was a piece of Perses jewelry. Is that what all this was about? A piece of metal? The canine was absurdly fast and cloaked In more darkness before she could even move to chase him. Eyes flashing to Perses she didn’t see any obvious injuries. So it seemed her assumption was correct. The mutt just wanted to steal, or, if he had intended to seriously wound Perses, he failed.

She wanted to say something. She wanted to do something. But, she just couldn’t. She was livid. She felt defeated. A rogue walked across her border and stole from one of her council members, and what had she done to stop it? Nothing. Fucking nothing. Growling to herself, the woman dug her claws into the ground. Was she really cut out to be queen? She couldn’t even stop a tiny mutt. Eyes dropping to the ground, she let out a quiet sigh. "You’re welcome to stay as a commoner, if you want.." She muttered, glancing to fang. She didn’t have the will to make him take the oath. It felt hypocritical. If she didn’t do everything she could to protect the legion and it’s members, why should she make anyone else pledge to. And with that, she turned, attempting to slink off between the trees, her ears back against her cranium.

He shook his head with an agitated growl at himself, both disappointed and mad that he could not catch the shadow creature. The being was faster than his eyes could follow properly, but the shifted back to Lord Perses and - thank the heavens - he didn't appear to be harmed. However, the glimmer of his necklace had vanished. Damned thief!! He looked over to all the ones who had arrived on-scene, asking them and making sure that the creature hadn't spat any sort of foul magic at them to keep them at bay on the other sides of it. His chest fell heavy at the realization that he proved nothing positive about him. Only that he would lead theives into ther home. Fang hung his head in shame, expecting to be turned away after such; his former Alpha would have turned him away if he was so fucking weak, so wouldn't she? Because she was merciful and - dare he say it - his best friend. “Thanks, Akeela. I'm sorry that I couldn't do more to help.” Gods damn it all!! Couldn't Fang be at least good for doing something of his friend and her followers!? He couldn't stand this feeling welling inside of him. He looked back up at her from the ground. Following by her side, he could she was feeling the same kind of emotions he had. How could she not? She was the Alphena and some prick had slipped between her paws like a rat. His words likely didn't help her feelings either. If she would let him do so, he nudged her shoulder and offered something he hoped out light her internal fire again. “Hey. You did good - being a leader is hard sometimes and it takes practice, but i'll be damned if you're not gonna be the best one yet! Just wait and see!” Fang smirks and walks beside his new Queen.
