[AW] Rough Landing

(This post was last modified: 08-02-2020, 06:08 PM by Tabitha. Edited 4 times in total.)
Tabitha laid upon the beach, her left flank against the sand, absorbing the beginnings of a pleasant winter sun. It almost felt like nothing changed, that she was still upon the chilly beaches of her homeland, running through the tumbling waves like she had done so many times as a pup. But it wasn't, she felt it in her bones. This land was not hers.

The unfamiliarity and grief instilled a lethargy, any movement marked as insignificant therefore futile. Chances were she wouldn't see her family again, nor her village, not even the glowing lanterns that would be strewn along her home. They where used as markers, an ever present path to a warm bed and pleasant meal. How she wished to see them now.

The scent that filled her nostrils was strange, as were so many thing on this godforsaken island, but she recognized it as a territory marking. the only thing this rose in her was a reaffirmation of her choice to stay put, like a bedraggled clump of stranded, hairy seaweed. Perhaps the natives would take pity on the almost woman, but she knew it was wishful thinking.

Still, even without all the fatigue in her bones, there was no chance she was passing up a bask in the sun, regardless of which continent she was on. And so she rested upon the sand still, having not moved a muscle.

OC Note: Tabitha is (accidentally) trespassing. She's by the very edge of the beach, she washed up there in the night due to stormy weather and a badly timed swim. I'm very aware she's not on an island, but she believes that due to her recent arrival! Sorry for lack of clarification.

RE: [AW] Rough Landing

STAFF NOTE :



Hello there Role player!

There seems to be a bit of a geographical confusion, as well as a need to clarify character location.

Yavania is not a separate island but is continuing on wards past the borders. (which you can't see) Imagine that is is just a portion of the world.

Palm Peninsula is not an island either. It is connected to Cherry Blossom Grove and is shares a river border with Pillar Plains. (As seen here: https://yavania.udocoded.com//misc.php?a...elp&hid=21 ) So the phrase "as were so many thing on this godforsaken island" is incorrect. However you as the role player can choose to have your character believe for some reason that they are on an island. I just wanted to clarify that she is not. The only island in Yavania is Plankton Isle.


There is one other issue, clarification on where she is exactly. It is unclear if she is stopped at the borders of the realm, or she is trespassing within the realm.

"Tabitha laid upon the beach, her left flank against the sand, absorbing the beginnings of a pleasant winter sun. It almost felt like nothing changed, that she was still upon the chilly beaches of her homeland, running through the tumbling waves like she had done so many times as a pup. But it wasn't, she felt it in her bones. This land was not hers. " Leads the other role players to believe she has crossed the river, gone to the beach and invaded the territory. Whilst "The scent that filled her nostrils was strange, as were so many thing on this godforsaken island, but she recognized it as a territory marking. the only thing this rose in her was a reaffirmation of her choice to stay put, like a bedraggled clump of stranded, hairy seaweed. Perhaps the natives would take pity on the almost woman, but she knew it was wishful thinking." Leads role players to believe she could possibly be at the borders. Please clarify where she is at.

If you want, underneath your post, you can make an OC (out of character) note if she is indeed trespassing. Something like OC Note: Tabitha is Trespassing upon Kingdom Territory.
An easy way to make it stand out if you do not have a character table is by using < b > (insert words) < / b > Minus the spaces. (as seen above) You don't have to, as it is completely your own post, however it just serves as a way from role player to role player to let people know when your character is doing something important or there is something important that needs to be known.

If Tabitha is at the borders of Palm Peninsula, then she should be stopped at the river border that is shared between the Pillar Plains and the Palm Peninsula. That is the only border that the Peninsula shares with an 'unowned' land. The Cherry Blossom Grove is inhabited by the same realm.

This thread is on Hold until those two changes are made. Feel free to take your time and edit. Just PM me when your done. <3

Sorry for having to note the first post but you did awesome! Don't worry or let it get you down at all. <3 Welcome to Yavania and I can't wait to RP with you! :D

There was never a time when Cothurnus thought it wasn’t a good idea to meddle in affairs when it pleased her most. Or, perhaps the occasional crudity of her own humour. Either all, it didn’t matter to the horned woman — spearing into the atmosphere, an ear would flick with boredom — that didn’t last long, though. There was a stranger inside the penninsula, drenched by the ocean. Who did they think they were? Trespassing was a crime, and the knight snarled in low rumbles, a coat of arrogance bleeding into her expression. It was dark and full of incentive, her irritation quite obvious by now as Cothurnus got closer. She didn’t particularly care for why or how, because as knight of the Verja with a spitfire tongue to salute it, she thought to be on top of the world. They’d understand their place, and the rules. Oceanic-maroon’s narrowed upon the girl in hard focus, jaws agape to speak as her hackles rose in dominance, “Not only have you trespassed among Verja lands, but your choice to stay here makes it so much worse for you.” It was far from a formal greeting, and the woman had no obligation to do so until they fuckin’ left. Eh, even then, she probably wouldn’t remember it. Chameleon skittered across Cothurnus’ fur, extinguishing the colours into a momentary gold and orange — quickly dismissing it, ears were pinned and her tail erect. There was no denying the fact that this knight, above all else, enjoyed making the lives of everyone difficult, especially towards idiots.

By insult or injury, she did whatever it is she pleased.

RE: [AW] Rough Landing

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance


She'd just started to exit her house when she paused. She glanced back inside for a very brief second before shrugging and heading on her way. Deciding that walking the small amount of borders that the peninsula had would be a good idea. Once she was done with that, she could easily do the same for the grove. It had been a while since she'd moved around the two more inhabited territories of the Kingdom. The female wolf was surprised when she heard the sound of a voice. That was when the wind would drift toward her, taking it with the scent of rogue and member alike. Kari frowned because it wasn't uncommon for rogues to waltz into the territory. But it also didn't happen on the regular either. Duty bound as a leader, Kari moved to investigate. Now that she was there, Kari could see that there was a wolf staring down that of a teenager.

A teenager that looked nearly full grown.

So, as far as Kari was concerned, old enough to know about borders and claimed lands. She stepped forward, her gaze locked upon the teenager as she ignored that of the Kingdom member. "Explain," Kari said with command. "I am Queen Kari and you are currently in my home. So, what reason did you decide that would be good enough to intrude without explicit welcome?"

The stranger approached, and Tabitha grimaced as she forced herself to her feet, her sore legs groaning in complaint. She took a moment to shake the sand and seawater off her pelt (might as well look half good if she were to be torn to shreds), and rose her head to meet the woman's eyes. She looked at her, amber orbs half lidded, and she fought the childish temptation to antagonise the arrogant creature. Or wolf. With her strange horns and colour changing fur, Tabitha couldn't tell.

She yawned loudly, her only intentional act to irritate the stranger. "Didn't have much of a choice." She stated blankly. she didn't intend to explain her whole life story unprompted, and she had a feeling the woman wouldn't ask."I'm Tabitha. You?" She asked, passive in both her body language and tone.

As she spoke, however, She noticed the second wolf approach. Part of her perked up. Maybe she wouldn't have to deal with one cranky old woman. On the other hand, they could easily both be cranky old women, and her fate would be as good as sealed. She thought grimly about being chewed to death by the two.

She breathed a silent sigh of relief when the other lady spoke without the same comical aggression, but withdrew it again at the mention of her royalty. That could very well mean fifty or so cranky old women out for her head. She didn't like that thought. "Didn't mean to, your highness?" She ended her answer in an uncertain tone, in case it wasn't the appropriate title. "Only got here a couple of hours ago maybe. Didn't have much of a choice where I landed." She hoped her ragged, still damp figure would maybe do the explaining for her, but she nodded to the sea for extra clarity.

Cothurnus could’ve easily burnt them to a crisp, especially after their lack of respect inside a home that was not theirs, let-a-lone a bad tempered knight. If they wanted to be cocky, she’d show them what for. There would be no mercy here, and a growl bellowed in absolute tyranny for their foolishness. But then, Kari arrived. Of course they’d show up, and the knight’s comical disposition to eat away at their ego was so forth dismissed –– well, ain’t this a surprise –– not. Still, her duties and responsibilities to ensure dickheads didn’t do this was valid enough. “Watch your tone,” She interjected quickly after the child spoke, warning them before shit goes hectic; best not to piss the queen off, right? Yeah, while Cothurnus may hold a spitfire tongue and unfiltered sass, that did not mean she was stupid. No, far from it. How many circumstances had the horned woman been in to account for such a statement? More than she cared to remember, really -- oceanic-maroon's practically pierced the atmosphere, trying to stare them down as her brows furrowed in disdain. Investigator kept passive like it’d always done, unable to speak again due to Litar’s retched curse, one he’d soon see eye-to-eye on her with.

Why, not being able to swear as well was just plain rude, was it not? Cothurnus thought so, and she remained silent for the moment.

RE: [AW] Rough Landing

Fraya padded through the Palm Peninsula. Her Companion was perched on her head, her rainbow lorikeet, Fugl. She wondered what she should do today. Maybe she could go down to the beach. And hopefully not electrocute herself. She still wasn't totally trusting her Electricity abilities after the incident with Jinx.

The woman saw a gathering ahead. She trotted over, seeing the familar presence of her cousin. And a lady with a ton of horns. And a teen lying on the beach. The African Wild Dog arrived to hear the last part of the stranger's answer and the horned woman's reply.

This was a girl (a teen so a kid in Fraya's eyes) that just washed up on the peninsula. Would they chase her out for accidentally tresspassing? That was inconceivable! She was a kid that washed up on their beach for crying out loud!

The gold and onyx warrior stopped three feet away from the girl. She was wet and smelled like the sea. And judging by her answer, she had washed up on the shore. Sure, she was a tresspasser but she really didn't have a choice. The Dame-Fritjov put on a welcoming, concerned approach. She dipped her head towards her cousin and the other woman. But she focused on the girl.

Kari and it seemed like this woman were tough customers. But Fraya wanted to let the stranger know that there was someone on her side. She hoped she wouldn't get her ass kicked for this.

"Are you alright, dear?" the warrior princess asked. Her voice attempting to mimic her mother's concerned tones. She would try to meet the girl's gaze with a concerned look. "I'm Fraya." she added. Hopefully she could coax a name out of the girl. She didn't want her to be chased out because of circumstances outside of her control. Kari would be reasonable, right?

Kairyn Tenebris Spire

“I HOPE YOU DON'T THINK THAT SHIT'S FAIR”

Kairyn heard the growling of a wolf all of a sudden (Cothurnus). Someone was trespassing! She raced to the sound, her wings outstretched to make her look even bigger and more intimidating than she already was. No one crossed her kingdom's borders without permission!

When she arrived a colorful wolf (Fraya) was speaking gently to the trespasser. Kairyn was young and so saw the older teen as an adult. Not a child in need of reassuring words. And an adult that had done something wrong. "You're trespassing!" Kairyn chirped gleefully. Maybe she would get to fight! She stepped closer, not afraid in the least. "Trespassing isn't good, especially not on my lands!"

Never mind the fact that Kairyn didn't own the territory and in fact the queen was right there. The whole kingdom was hers, according to her.

Sebastian Dame-Bards

You Want A Fight?
I'll Give You A War.

Sebastian was unaware of the ruckus going on down the beach from him. He was dashing around and jumping around in the sand. Rolling and growling at invisible enemies as he leapt from here to there. Sure, he was a year old now but that didn't quite matter right? He could still play around! The feathers were caught in the wind, fluffing up as he play bowed at nothing before sprinting a ways down the beach. That was when he saw all the people gathered up down there, what was going on and why was he missing out? Plus, the strange creature was there too. He didn't remember her name nor what she was, but he held his tail high as he trotted over anyways.

Before he got there, the boy would shake out his coat, activating Cinders in the process as a grin crossed his face. Dodging the hot coals as he continued forward, he paid them no mind. Static did ripple across his coat but he didn't notice it. As he got closer, the boy noticed a wolf that only smelled of the sea. She had strange horns, and to him red fur. It looked bad ass but he cast an around to everyone else. He just caught Kairyn's words, 'trespassing isn't good, especially not on my lands!' He would attempt to come to a stop to her hopefully on the opposite side of everyone else, a whisper coming from his lips but hopefully loud enough for her to hear. "What's happening?" Well, it was rather obvious. The other wolf was trespassing, as he could assume from the big birds words.
