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 'Devil’s Perch'
Shrine of Greeshma description 33 dns 8
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.

Pyremount Point description 27 dns 5
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.

Wastelanders Paradise description 7 dns 1
Hidden deep within the center of the Devil's Perch is a rarely seen jewel of the desert. Beautiful water flows through deep rivets in the cracked stone, allowing a place for all within Greeshma to cool off in Wasterlander's Paradise. Grass dots the edges, much sweeter than the sparse bitter grass that runs along the cracks of the hard packed sand throughout the rest of Devil's Perch. The area is open and not restricted by rank, even visiting horses from other deities are welcome to cool off in the waters lest they suffer from heat stroke. Beautiful glimmering fish live within that sparkle as they pass just below the surface. Herd meetings are often held within walking distance to the oasis so everyone may find comfort afterwards. Not only an optimal place to escape from the land of summer's heat, Wastelander's Paradise is also a wonderful meeting spot and place to socialize. It is the only place within the entirety of Devil's Perch that boasts even the slightest bit of lush green vegetation. The Wasterlander's Paradise is a beacon of hope in an otherwise rough environment that instills hope in those that follow in the steps of the summer deity, Greeshma.

Rules & Reminders
Description
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.
