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!

    Cia
    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 'Dead Horse Ridge'
Shrine of Shishira description 15 dns 8
High into the heavens, hidden in the peaks of Dead Horse Ridge lies Shishira Shrine. From the outside, it looks like just a dark and abandoned bunker but if you are daring enough to enter, one will see the splendor within. Carved in onyx crystal is an extravagant shrine that stands twelve feet tall. The architecture if extremely detailed and rather stunning in a mysterious and dark manner. The crystal architecture has sharp crisp edges and lots of dagger like décor. In the very center of the shrine is a crystal brazier that holds a coal bed and amber flames. Astonishingly this flame never goes out, but offers a soft flicker of amber lights that makes the entire shrine glow. There are times where it grows stronger than most and seems to be connected to the strength of the empire. There is a crystal alter that is the perfect place for sacrifices. Throughout the small cave are large iron prison cells and torture devices. Some of the cells hang from the ceiling and other are crafted into the rock interior. Most of them are rusted and outdated but could still be used. There are bones that littered throughout the shrine from past prisoners and sacrifices giving it a rather eerie feeling. This shrine has been abandoned for many years so a thick layer of dust and cobwebs has taken claim to the once stunning shrine. Now that Shishira is back and has appointed a new emperor, the shrine should be used to its full potential.

Bloodfall Citadel description 62 dns 9
Nestled within the mountains of Dead Horse Ridge is a large ancient fort, much of which has been reclaimed by the mountain and winter over the years, but the main Citadel seems to have withstood time. Set atop a ridge, the Bloodfall Citadel is skirted by a large wall that, during its time, would have been the first line of defence asides the treacherous mountains themselves. There is the main castle structure that takes up most of the higher court level, which is where the Emperor and his main advisors live. It is a large daunting structure on the outside, but within is a surprisingly elegant beauty that would rival any palace. Outside of the castle are both the barracks and the main living quarters of the citizens of the Ridge. Many of the buildings are inhabitable as they have long since collapsed, but enough remains for those that call the Ridge home.

Bloodfall Battlegrounds description 15 dns 1
The Bloodfall Battle Grounds is located in the lower section of the Bloodfall Citadel. It is technically not a true battleground, but merely a collapsed area of what was once perhaps a market area. Rubble and stones coated in ice and snow, with only a few barren trees scattered here and there make up this area, although, some walls and even roofs still remain and may be utilised as shields and shelters during battle. The Bloodfall Battle Grounds may often suffer severe blizzards throughout the harsher winter portions of the year, making it far more treacherous than during the warmer months, as much of the rubble is concealed in the snow; it may be just as dangerous in the warmer months when the snow turns to slush. The large wall that once separated the living quarters and the market acts as the perfect vantage point for those wishing to watch over any battles below.

Cobalt Hot Springs description 0 dns 0
Nestled away in a once-hidden valley that has since been made accessible via a few paths around the mountains, is a hot spring system with the most stunning blue waters that have given this place its name. The Cobalt Hot Springs is little-known to outsiders, as the valley in which resides is quite some way into Dead Horse Ridge; some may say it is even at its heart. The pools here are a source of relief for many from the bitter cold of the mountains all year round, for there are pools not only outside of the mountain but also within. A relatively small cavern system provides respite from harsh winds that may make relaxing outside too difficult despite the warm waters; it’s also a great retreat for couples looking to catch some alone time, as the steam and fog provide extra privacy from prying eyes. Don’t worry; it’s still big enough for two guests of large proportions. Also worthy of noting is the waters vary in depth, from shallow around the edges to deeper in the centre, and it is advised that children or those of shorter stature do not venture too far in should they not know how to swim.

The Maiden Mansion description 3 dns 2
Tucked away high in the mountains of Dead Horse Ridge lies a dark tunnel... This dark tunnel leads to a divine world unlike anything in Caeleste. Behind a massive crimson and crushed velvet curtain lies an Olympus replica, home to The Great Thyterios of Olympus. Stepping into the extravagant home one will see nothing but marble, gold, and all the finest things in life. Heart of the great room is a massive fireplace that warms the entire mansion. The architecture and decor is extremely stunning, made of only the finest materials and silks. It feels as if you are truly taking step into the heavens and experiencing the castles of Olympus for yourself.

Within the strange new world are many running hallways and rooms. Most of them are decorated like the rest of the mansion. Over the top, gaudy, and fit for a God. Along with the extravagances are stunning mares... Many of them are young but all of them are absolutely stunning. These are the Maidens of the great Thyterios. Each has their own divine room, but there are over thirty different bedrooms, some still very much open for vacancy. There are two kitchens one where the maidens cook and serve while the other is made to honor guests and host lavish balls. There are three levels to the mansion. The main floor in which you walk into, the top floor which has a staircase that leads to Thyterios's room...

Then there is the bottom floor. The bottom floor is not a place anyone wants to go, nor allowed in it. It is locked with a key only Thyterios holds. It harnesses the dark secrets of the Master and pray you are never unfortunate enough to find out. Keep in mind this is a private establishment and often times Thyterios is not accepting of uninvited males.Females always welcomed...

Rules & Reminders
Description
A large mountain scape with treacherous elevation, full of rough and rocky terrain. Coniferous trees, rocks, sparse shrubbery and snow found here offer little to no refuge. However, life does inhabit this harsh landscape such as black tail deer, elk, grizzly bear, wolves, moose, mountain lions and of course smaller woodland creatures. Being placed so far north, winter seems to stay year round, the snow and cold rain rarely ending. Upon the tallest peak where the snow never melts and the wind never subsides is the entrance to a massive cave. No one has made it to the top of this mountain there fore no one truly knows what resides in the cave. Tall tales say the abominable snow man lives there, and ice dragon, and then others say the four deities live within the cage in the tallest mountain. The frigid winds seem to never reside, instead grow stronger with elevation. Heavy snow and sleet swirl around making it impossible to see more than a few feet infront of you making the climb to the top impossible. Many have attempted to make it up the steep mountain but they either turn back or have died trying. You might wonder how everyone knows there is a cave, if the mountain is so tall and the weather is so bad. No one would know except the fact at night if the weather has subsided the slightest, you can see a small glow. An amber glow that twinkles from the dark cave giving dreamers ideas and hopes to what is up there.
