Setting
Year III | Fall
The leaves that have turned their auburn and crimson colors are now falling to the earth. Many trees are barren as the cold temperatures of fall set in. Many animals are fattening themselves for the winter to come. There is talk this winter is going to be a hard one so many are prepping early. The air is crisp and most mornings are accompanied by a thin layer of ice as it drops below freezing a few hours after the sun sets. The hides on many animals, especially the equines are thickening as the northern winds bring in a heavy chill. Many are nervous the rumors of a harsh winter is true. Those smart enoough stock up on fire wood and supplies in hopes they will be prepared. Nearly all the mirgatorial birds have flown to the warmest parts of Caeleste by now, almost a month ealier than normal!

    A wonderful asset to Caeleste as a whole! Not only does she dedicate her time as a staff member but she also spends a lot of her time being an amazing writer! She is very friendly in the chat box and her characters are very well developed. It seems everytime she steps into chat box or our discord, everything seems to light up! We are blessed to have her apart of the team and cannot thank you enough for your dedication and creativity!
  • Thread of the Month
    Standing in the Way of the Light
    A wild tale of two very dark creatures meeting for a second time... Xavier, possessed by 'The Darkness' tries to warn Resin about the demon inside of him but she is far too fearless to listen. Long story short The Darkness and Resin strike a deal... For twelve months the demon will on feed on her and then on the last day of the twelve months it will leave Xavier's body and never return. However it refuses to leave empty handed and as it leave Xavier it will take Resin's soul! It's a daring, darking, emotional and twisted thread that won't leave you dissapointed!
  • Couple of the Month
    Rhiannon & Wellington
    A very interesting duo that you would never expect to be friends. The noble, strong headed, and rather independant Rhiannon versus Wellington, an eccentric character that has a weak moral compass but hilarious nonetheless. Their dynamics make for very interesting and rather comical threads. You can't help but wonder why a mare like Rhiannon spends her time with a creature like him but then also thankful she is there to take care Wellington and save him from all of his shenanigans.
  • Character of the Month
    Xaiver
    A soul tormented by his own demons and terrible past, Xavier is a unique character to Caeleste. The poor boy seems to have endured Hell - quite literally - only to be further tormented in recent times. While he is not the monster that lives within him, his hold on the metaphorical beast seems to be waning. We can't wait to see what is in store for Xavier's future and whether or not he will shake the hold of his inner demons!
  • Quote of the Month
    Resin
    "Another time, perhaps. I believe we've both tormented him enough for today."

    A sad moment in the thread Standing in the Way of the Light where Resin turns down the Darkness, the demon within Xavier. However tempted, she has more respect for Xavier and tries to decline as delicately as she knows... It is a capturing moment where the apathetic Resin shows something for the damned Xavier.

Forums in 'Arctic Highlands'
Shrine of Hemanta description 29 dns 9
Located within the heart of the chilling Arctic Highlands, the Shrine of Hemanta pays its respect to the sweet deity of winter. The youngest of the four siblings, Hermanta's soul does not reflect the chilly atmosphere she prefers to surround herself with. She is said to be a sweet and warm soul; however, even the strongest souls sometimes fall. Though unable to be verified, it is rumored that Hemanta went into a deep depression that led to the falling out of the siblings and near annihilation of Caeleste. Since the monumental milestone in Caeleste's history, Hemanta has never been physically spotted; however, her presence still remains strongly in the nooks and crannies of the intimidating Artic Highlands. It is particularly at her shrine that her presence can be felt most strongly. A cavernous, mountainous cave, the shrine provides protection from the sharp winds and year round cold. It is a place for the citizens of Winter to come and pay their respects to the goddess as well as request for the privilege to wield her powerful sorcery. Once receiving approval, the stones magically appear in front of the equines, and it is the mark of Hemanta's approval of the citizen, for it is her way of rewarding loyal and dedicated followers.

The CoCo Lodge description 51 dns 6
In the heart of Hemanta, lays your sanctuary from the cold, the CoCo Lodge. Made of a deep brown wood, it is the definition of cozy. Be it the warm hue of lights in the distance, or the sweet smell of chocolate goodness you are for sure to be drawn in. A small worn path leads up to the snow covered building, and you can immediately upon seeing the medium size building smell the aromas.Upon entering you will be greeted with the lively atmosphere. The bar lays straight ahead where you can get the infamous creamy hot coco, or a more judgment impairing drink. Around the corner of the entrance you will find the small stage, where you can find others singing karaoke, or simply moving to the lovely tunes. Along with the wonderful drinks comes the abundance of delicious pastries that will leave your mouth watering for more. Also if you happen to be a traveler who happened upon the lodge, there are a few rooms in the back welcome to those who may have lost their way in the blizzards. Drink at your own risk. The coco is known for being randomly spiked, though the source is unknown. Nylah nor Willow will take responsibility of your actions under the influence, or pay for damaged or stolen goods.

Winter’s Dream description 26 dns 3
Overhead of this region of Hemanta, the light curves through the sky so often, the aurora swaying and dancing. It glows shades of blues, purples and greens, and weaves its way across the sky. High atop a peak a single tree grows, huge and forever alone atop the crest of the mountain. It is so tall the branches are often covered in cloud, but at night when the sky is clear, it is a silhouette of beauty. Before the tree is a large pond that is fed by rain, often, and water cascades over a small waterfall and down the mountain, feeding a main major water source. The grass grows thick and green here, differing shades. The water is a turquoise and crystal clear and clean. At night though the real show begins. As the aurora dances the tree blooms to life, lights shimmering along the branches and on the edges as the bio-luminescent life takes to the air. It is unknown if they are some kind of insect or spirit, and is open to interpretation to the viewer, but they light up the water and the world shines beautiful – and it is truly wonderful. Either day or night… but night is the true entertainment.

The Icelight Keep description 27 dns 5
Nestled in the heart of Hemanta against the mountains, where the winding village meets the foot of the great towering ridgeline, settled below the shrine of the Winters, sits the frosted royal residence, the great palace of the Arctic Highlands – the Icelight Keep. The entrance is high styled and grand, with great looming doors, and the grounds are immaculately kept, the gardens out the back lit by soft lights and winter plants that bloom for the majority of the year, brightest in the winter. Inside the main entrance there is a large grand hall, and down and off to the right is the Hall of the Winter, where the Emperor and Empress meet with their followers to discuss matters of importance. The lower floor has numerous eating areas and kitchens, hidden nooks and crannies, while the upper floors are were the Emperor and Empress live, and those who have positions of importance in Hemanta also take up residence in their own rooms here. The Icelight Keep is grand and cold to the eye but is warm inside – but it is a place where movement is controlled.

Rules & Reminders
Description
The Arctic Highlands are home to the equines of Hemanta, the deity of winter. With extreme elevation and almost consistently frigid temperatures, only a limited amount of species and vegetation call this land home. With high rolling hills and sloping mountains, the terrain is anything but smooth. Littered with rocks, frozen ground, and short vegetation theses lands are not for the faint of heart. There is a small cave system within the large rolling hills that offer a sufficient amount of shelter for the equines of winter. Caribou, moose, wolves, pumas, and a few other animals call this place home. Besides equines there is a large herd of caribou that call this place their home all year round. In the summer months, the weather does calm down just enough for more plant life to grow; however, in the winter it can be rather harsh. Nevertheless, it is the closest point where sky meets earth and land bound animals can almost touch the sky. It also provides one of the clearest points to watch as the sun greets and bids adieu to the land each morning and night. Though perhaps not as refined as the other parts of the Caeleste, the Artic Highlands holds its own charm as it stands tall and proud above all the other lands, glistening and gleaming beneath both sun and moonlight.
