And have fun posting!
YR IV | Spring
The ice still remains thick in most areas. The winter seems to be lingering into the spring making everyone wish the whispers where not true. A few last storms hit Caeleste but soon enough the snow and ice begin to slowly melt, causing certain areas to experience a bit of flooding. Slush also makes navigating certain areas rather time consuming. The good news is that temperatures are rising and wildlife is starting to come out. Flowers and trees slowly start to wake up from their slumber, blooming into beautiful colors of pinks and whites. Even though the air is warmer, the nights are still cold but that will improve with time. It appears there will not be much rain but dont let the delay fool you. When the rain comes it will hit hard. April showers bring may flowers. But they also help bring Caeleste back to life.
2nd of August 2018 | Its spring and the gentle showers have gone on for weeks. Nothing seems to let up. The sky darkens. The thunder booms. And then comes the wind. You cant help but feel odd and damp as the days go on. Dead Horse Ridge and the Arctic Highlands have dropped in temperature enough to experience rain. Even the desert is in threat of flash floods. Check out our SWP Part One - The Thunder Rolls to find out what this is all about.

Mauna & Ciaran
These two are simply a wonderful read! The way they interact with each other is amazing and their threads are certainly something. They're written very well together!
Anubis
Anubis, the Lord of the Dead, the Boogeyman that haunts children's dreams has made quite the name for himself in Caeleste. This master of manipulation was once a God, immortal, powerful, and feared. With his immortality and power stripped from him we are eager to see how he adjusts to life in a land ruled by other gods!
It Hurts Like Hell...
Two former enemies relate to each other after the object of their mutual affection leaves them without warning. In this thread, Castiella destroys Thyterios's home, and the two mares discuss their lives since then. This thread is still ongoing, so don't miss the fun!

Ruled by Emperor Hassan

Travelers beware! Devil’s Perch is a wasteland mimicking hell itself. Day after day the sun’s hot beating rays scorch across the dry land. Cracked and cement like sand scatters across the realms, with large boulders and deep canyons creating a dangerous terrain. Large crevices cracked across the realm, where many have stepped blindly into, breaking limbs and falling to their death. Being such a barren wasteland, it’s easy to get lost and it's quick to get dehydrated. Scattered through the land are dried out carcasses and bones from the past, poor souls who never made it out alive. There is only one water source that can be located in Devil’s Perch, thus making vegetation sparse and far between. Home to the equines of Greeshma, deity of summer--this land is perfection to them. Found in the heartland is a large plateau and at the base is a large entrance into a cave system that offers refuge. Within the caves the shrine to Greeshman can be found. Etched out in the wall of the massive mountain of red clay, the caves offer a cool escape from the awful heat. Outside, Cactus being the only plentiful vegetation, weeds and leafless trees can also be occasionally found. They offer little to no nutrition, but can save one’s life if they are lost and stranded. As rare as it is, rain fall does drop a few times a year. Because the scorching dry land, flash floods are often in response of the rain. At the southernmost tip, the terrain grows steeper with crayons and dangerous predators reside. Pumas, birds of prey, massive scorpions, snakes, blood thirsty insects and much more hide in the shadows and cracks of this land, ready for the next victim to step into their trap.

Shrine of Greeshma
-

Here, lies the Shrine that gives tribute to Greeshma, the deity of summer! The eldest of the four siblings, he was known to be the most brash, hot tempered, and strong willed of the them all. The folklore says when he disappeared, a small stone shrine appeared from thin air in the upper east side of Devil’s Perch which had once been Greeshma's home. Inside the shrine, is an altar with lit candles all around. With no windows, the only light offered is through the doorway and by the flickering candles. Casted with an amber glow, the stone walls offer a coolness not customary to the dry and hot landscape of Devil’s Perch. The architecture within the shrine is bold, sharp, and very plain. It now acts as a place for equines to seek guidance and strength from Greeshma. It is also where sorcery stones are requested to be handed down from Greeshma including the request to acquire high-level and more powerful stones. If the request is sanctioned, the stones will magically appear in front of the equines. Though not physically present, it is through the acknowledgement of these requests that Greeshma exhibits his pleasure with his citizens. Loyal worshipers of Greeshma will be recognized and awarded accordingly.

Flamevale Stronghold
-

The remarkable Capital of Devil’s Perch! Flamevale Stronghold is, in many ways, a scaled-down version of Caeleste’s own Celestial City. It is nestled up against the stony mountains that line the Perch’s eastern border, resting comfortably in the protection of their craggy precipices, and also within easy walking distance of the shores of Suncrest Falls. Massive stone walls rise around the Stronghold’s borders, separating it from the rest of the desert territory, and clearly marking its importance. There are two entrances—the main one in the front that faces towards the heart of Devil’s Perch, and a smaller one in the back that leads to the canyons and cave systems that wind through the mountain passes. Both entrances feature large metal gates, crafted by Greeshma’s own steel magic, and are constantly guarded by the herd’s militia. Within the large walls, one will find streets that are lined with various small markets, taverns, and boutiques. Additionally, thanks to the nearby waters, a handful of hardy trees and assorted plants can also be found within Flamevale Stronghold, including seasonal flowers that add pops of color to the landscape. Houses of those who reside here can also be found along the outer parts of the small city; any member of Greeshma’s herd is welcome to make their home here, provided they are respectful of the Emperor’s laws.

The highlight of Flamevale Stronghold is at its heart. An impressive citadel, known as Flamevale Fortress, rises above the rooftops of the other buildings. Its stone architecture is immaculate, both inside and out, and is quite beautiful, but undeniably powerful; there is nothing delicate about this palace. Walking through its grand entrance, it speaks of strength. The main floor is open to the general public, where various meetings are held, and where citizens may request an audience with their Emperor. The second floor is meant to house the members of the Council and Administration, if they so wish, and is not open to wandering visitors. The third and highest floor is home only to the Emperor, and one must not enter his dwelling unless invited. Throughout the Fortress, attendants work to upkeep and maintain the grandiosity of the stone citadel, striving to make both visitors and inhabitants comfortable.

Suncrest Falls
-

The only true water source to be found within the entirety of Devil’s Perch, Suncrest Falls is situated towards the central northeastern part of the desert territory. What once was a simple pond is now a beautiful paradise, made up of crystal clear waters and fertile vegetation. Through the hard, cracked sands, small rivulets of water feed into the upper pool, which eventually cascades down a stony precipice in a brilliant waterfall, surging to the main lagoon below. Shallow banks steadily give way to deeper waters, allowing for a cool swim and momentary relief from the scorching heat. A number of fish can be found swimming within the depths of Suncrest Falls, their soft scales catching the sunlight in a glittering display of color, playing just beneath the surface, or diving to deeper parts of the basin. The blue of the waters is brilliant against the hues of orange and red from the desert, and their depths are so clear you can nearly see through to the bottom. Sweet grasses and leafy trees that cannot be found throughout the rest of Devil’s Perch are peppered along the shoreline, hardy in nature but delicious to taste, and offering areas of shade that are rare in such a dry and desolate place. Suncrest Falls is a paradise that has rescued many weary travelers from the blistering heat, and often gives them a sense of hope and peace in an otherwise harsh landscape. It is truly a jewel of the desert.

Pyremount Point
-

Tucked into the very most northern coast of Devil’s Perch, carved out of granite and sandstone and anchored sturdily over the ocean and into the rocky precipice of Pyremount Point, is Emberspire Refuge. Originally a monastery sculpted to worship Greeshma under a pagan name, the Refuge is now an independent little town—able to stand on it’s own despite the attempts of the larger Capital to swallow it up. Buildings that were once used for prayer and pious study are now shops and housing for the few equines that call it home; alleys and streets that were once filled with robed monks bustle with merchants peddling their wares, and musicians singing their songs in the shadow of the Point. One would think in such a heated atmosphere that the population would not thrive, but they would be wrong. With the blessing of the ocean, the Refuge has not just survived, but flourished. While still incredibly warm, it is bearable and almost hospitable despite the overbearing sun. Flowers meant for the climate grow readily in the boxes of windows, and on the warmest days one will find occupied buildings with their doors open and the people lingering on the parapets that look over the dark water below, hoping to catch the wind.

But what is most interesting about the small sanctuary is the people that make their home here—and most certainly the Physician of Devil’s Perch and her family. She and her students tend medicinal gardens inside the walls, most notably a spread of Breadseed poppy; bobbing their little red heads in the breeze beside Hummingbird Weed and Mormon Tea at the back of her Apothecary. And while Emberspire remains independent, it also must live under the rules of the Greeshma Empire, though your biggest fear is that The White Lady, or Lady of the Point, finds you doing wrong. Rule breaking is not tolerated, theft and assault are a punishable offense, and hooligans will be dealt with accordingly. These rules apply to residents and visitors alike.
