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.

Rules & Reminders
Description
Entangled deep within the alluringly mysterious Silver Pines, the Shrine of Sharad blends almost seamlessly with its surroundings. A tribute to the Autumn deity, the Shrine is made from what once was beautiful white stone. Now, however, it is stained from precipitation and vegetation. Thick vines and leaves wind their way up the proud columns, embracing it within their unforgiving hold. Nevertheless, it was once the home of the eccentric deity. Having always been known as the odd duck in the family, Sharad always had an odd fascination with death and decay though held no malicious intent within his heart. Rather the opposite in fact, for he merely wished to give proper respects to the last stages in life as life gives to death and light turns to darkness. Akin to the master it gives homage to, the Shrine is best described as foreboding as it represents the fine line between life and death with its deathly pallor surrounded by the lively vegetation. It is a place for equines to come to worship Sharad as well as request things such as their sorcery stones. Like the other deities, Sharad no longer occupies his shrine in the physical sense; however, his presence can still be strongly felt. Thus, when requests are granted, objects, such as sorcery stones, will magically appear at the stone alter that stands in the middle of the small shrine. Remember, only the devoted will be bequeathed the privilege to carry a gift from a God. Those who deserve it, will be awarded accordingly.

Make sure to mark your thread with the appropriate prefix! Any sort of inquiry for sorcery or attention of the deities mark as QUEST and please tag the Plot Account!
