Setting
YR TWO | EARLY SPRING
The snow has melted in most places of Caeleste, besides those that are prone to snow throughout all seasons. Birds are chirping, the nice weather bringing them back home from winter migrations. You will also notice many other animals reappearing throughout. Weather temperatures have risen but often a cool crisp air will still bite at coats during the evening and night hours. Enjoy the lovely weather of spring for summer may not be as kind.

  • Member of the Month
    boaz
    Rather new to this large crazy family, Boaz is often seen in the cBox or in Caeleste's discord channel. A rather friendly, outgoing personality, Boaz is not afraid to make new friends and get involved in any plots!
  • Thread of the Month
    let’s play a game
    A touching, heartbreaking, thread. Leonidas and Roxana come to find their beautiful child viciously murdered. This thread can be considered the start of a war as Leonidas will not rest until he finds whomever did this.
  • Couple of the Month
    Vithmiris & Slythe
    Caeleste's resident vampire couple, Emperor Vithmiris and Slythe have offered a rather interesting dynamic to their pairing. While the pair have a tendency for violence, the two also have their tender moments - as fleeting as they are.
  • Character of the Month
    Hassan
    The newly crowned Greeshma Emperor has certainly made a name for himself among many in Caeleste in many ways and has made it no secret his ambitions for the kingdom of Greeshma. We can't wait to see what he does next!
  • Quote of the Month
    Rhiannon
    “Run along back to that mountain in that frozen hell you call home. And next time you come strolling out from between his sheets, I suggest you wash yourself. I could smell you a mile away.”

OOC NAME: Darkrise
Character Name: Nightingale
Name of Sub-Board: Salle des Ombres
Description of Sub-Board: Sitting upon the river bank at the central edge of the Celestial City is the Salle des Ombres, Caeleste’s concert hall. A glorious example of ancient architecture the Hall of Shadows is built from a mixture of sandstone, concrete and marble, lavishly decorated but bearing an imposing hint of shadowy corridors and hidden passageways. Housing every kind of performing arts imaginable the Salle des Ombres is known primarily for its opera and orchestral performances, filling the City with song. During the day it is quiet, the odd dress rehearsal taking place but it is at night that the Salle des Ombres lights up. Run by the illusive Phantom, he is rarely seen in fact no one knows who he really is thus allowing Nightingale to perform in the events and go about unrecognised recognition. He lives among the lower most tunnels though his melodious voice may sometimes be heard at night. Many of the numerous rooms are rented out to groups looking for private meeting places where their questionable activities are not disturbed. Such activities can include anything; from secret guilds to couples seeking bedrooms fit for royalty and even neutral territory for warring groups.

IC Post: As day dwindled into darkness and the Celestial City was illuminated by the light of a thousand lanterns the Salle des Ombres became a glowing beacon of life. It was opening night, a grand performance to celebrate the Hall’s launch and the entirety of Caeleste was invited. Guests filed in through the grand gates, the dull roar of conversation rising into the night. Backstage it was teaming with performers, choreographers, stagehands and musicians, each rushing around in frantic last minute preparations.

Amidst the organised chaos there was Nightingale, dressed head to hoof in his black cloak and looking for all the world like nothing more than another cast member- and to these equines that’s all he was. Little did they know that their soloist was in fact the fabled ‘Phantom’ who owned and ran the Salle des Ombres from the hidden tunnels. Calm and uncharacteristically comfortable among the crowds Nightingale was pleased to be considered part of the furniture as he efficiently ran his lines through his head, feeling the emotion behind each word and note ricochet through him. Here the reserved man was in his element, lost in the performance and the anonymity of costume as only thoughts of the upcoming concert filled everyone’s minds. The air crackled with electricity, excitement dancing like wildfire as the audience’s chatter could be heard from the other side of the red velvet curtain. Months of preparation had gone into the opening show; days spent hunting for the best performers and hours upon hours of rehearsals. When Nightingale had won the derelict building in a bet he could not have imagined that months later it would be opening to the public as Caeleste’s concert hall.

A hush fell about the crowd as the curtain rose revealing the empty stage, a fog curling across it and moving toward the crowd. A bang and a flash of light marked the entrance of the narrator, a stallion dark in colour and dressed much like Nightingale, he spoke in exaggerated tones telling of an enrapturing performance to come. And then the night begun, the orchestra striking up song and horses running on stage to begin. This night and many nights to come would be filled with beautiful music.

OOC NAME: Dawn
Character Name: Absinthe
Name of Sub-Board: The Den
Description of Sub-Board: A hidden alleyway between shops leads to what seems to be a dead end. Yet equines who know the secret may step on a certain stone and release a spiraling stone staircase. The staircase leads into a catacomb of tunnels. The tunnels are damp and dark. Lit by a sparse assortment of torches. The catacombs are easy to get lost in. Many souls have breathed their last breaths within its confines. If one knows the way they will find a hidden door within one of the passageways. Knock once, twice, and a third time and you're in. The Den is well light with candles and torches. The stone here is clean and glistening. Red tapestries with the sigil of a dagger and hoof hang along the walls. There is a bar in the corner where one may drink their fill and plenty of space to plot whatever wicked thing you plan to do next.

IC Post: 
With the night at her back Absinthe crept along the main road of the Celestial City. Yellow eyes watched the world around her carefully, not wanting to be followed. She had no qualms about 'fixing' whatever problem would arise should an unwelcome guest come to her abode but she had a long day today. Punishments would have to wait. With fluid grace, she slinked between two familiar shops. Winding down the alleyway. She paused at the ending wall. Waiting. Listening. No one was there. A solid kick to the correct stone and suddenly a staircase opened before her. She twisted down the newly made path and into the catacombs beneath. A frown appeared on her face. This place was damp and unsightly. She wished that she could spruce it up. She was a vain creature after all. But, in order to keep her home safe, she must keep up the facade that these passageways were uninhabited. As she transversed the tunnels a sound came to her ears. A sort of wailing cry. There was someone lost in the catacombs. A wicked smile painted her lips them. A snack for later perhaps. 

The woman ignored the howling, for now, finally finding the hidden door to her home. One knock. Two knocks. And three knocks. She was in. This place was far more fitting. Candles and torches lit up The Den. Tapestries in red, black, and gold lined the walls. It was spotless. There was a slight hush of those who found themselves here when she entered. She was the lady of this place, after all, she demanded respect. Casually she made her way to the bar and ordered a drink. When she began to sip conversation lit up The Den again. Absinthe smiled to herself. Proud of the home she had made. Listening to the devilish plots that were being made. An assassin there. A thief over there. The creatures of the night all flocked to her. And she loved it. Soon enough a servant brought a stack of paperwork for the mare to look over. She took her time. Making sure that every t was crossed and i was dotted. 

She had gone out earlier that day to be sure that the work that those who found themselves here was done how it should be done. Was the horse that an assassin promised was dead truly dead? Was the artifact said to be stolen truly gone? Had her members paid her accurate percentages of their earnings? She granted them protection, a place to hash out their ideas and create contracts, so she at least deserved some compensation. Those who had done her wrong in any way, either by not doing what they said they should or being a rat, were thrown away in the dungeon. Imprisoned forever. Or until the mare grew hungry. Movement caught her attention then. An equine made their way to her side. She smirked. This could only mean two things. One, they wanted the best of the best for an assassination job. She wasn't cheap but she always got the job done. Or two, they wanted to try their hand at winning her favor for one night of passion. "Business or pleasure?" Either was deliciously tantalizing.

OOC NAME: Dawn
Character Name: Eowyn
Name of Sub-Board: Bellicose Fields
Description of Sub-Board: The fields are not much to look at upon first glance. With miles and miles of flat land spilling forth before you the scenery is bland. Green grass covers much of the land in a thick blanket. There is little to no trees to be found here. However if one takes a closer look they will notice small huts sprouted from the field. Within these huts are an assortment of goods that any equine looking to practice their battling skills might need. Swords, armor, all can be found here. The blacksmith's hut, which provides all of these goods, can be found in the middle of the Bellicose Fields. Certain areas are designated for whatever practice one may be looking for. Archery to the right, sword fighting to the left, hoof to hoof contact straight ahead. The sounds of battle can almost always be heard here.

Eowyn had awoken with the day. Taking her time to enter the fields.The morning was filled with the sound of clashing metal. Though the sun had only begun to rise the Bellicose Fields was teaming with equines who wished to perfect their art. The sound of battle swam through the mare's veins. Adrenaline pumping. She moved with a pep that she had not carried in quite some time. Traveling across the fields was easily done. The ground was soft with its blanket of bright green grass. One could see for a hundred miles here. The land was flat and only ever occasionally broken by a hut. Eowyn visited these huts first. Checking to be sure that all the goods that were available to visitors were up to her standards. If a sword was too bent or rusted she would throw it out. If a bow had too few arrows she would add that to her to do list. If armor was growing old and worn she would melt the metal down to create a new set. Once she was sure that everything was good for her visitors she set out towards the fields. 

She smiled and gave pleasantries to her fellow trainers. She knew that she could not train all the beasts who came here, so she had hired others to help her. Eowyn had gone through each equine's application carefully to be sure that she hired only the best for this place. So far they were all performing to her liking. Still, she liked to patrol the Fields and get an idea of who was practicing and how. There was starting to be a group of usuals who came to the Fields daily to craft their skills. She watched them carefully. Shouting any tips that she might have from the sidelines. The Fields was broken off into sections. Separated by simple wooden log fences. A sign hung before the entrance of each, labeling it. 

She started off in the sword fighting field. Watching techniques. Making sure that everyone was practicing safely. The sword fighting field was almost always full. The grass here had grown somewhat worn from all of the traffic. Along the fenceline laid an assortment of swords. Some long, some short. Some wide some thin. For whatever need an equine might have. When she was satisfied there she moved to archery. She checked each and every bow. Making sure that they were all working properly. She critiqued some. Showing her own skills humbly. This field was less populated. Equines formed a line behind one another, waiting to aim towards the targets made of straw and wood. Finally, she arrived at the sparing fields with no weapons. She watched quietly. Taking in the smell of sweat and blood. One could not expect to battle and not pay for it at sometimes. With a rush of exhilaration, she joined the fray. Bodies all swayed together in a hostile dance. With each partner, she met the mare gave out tips and criticism. She also listened to what others had to say towards her own battling style. Though she was skilled she always learned something new in the battlefield. 

With sweat dripping the mare excused herself. She was satisfied with the progression of the day. The sun had risen and settled high in the sky and begun to sink by the time she was through. Eowyn took a drink at the well and began her trek to the blacksmith's cottage. That was where she felt most at home. With the heat and embers spraying. She worked tirelessly on her orders. A sword for one of her regulars. A small bow for one of the newer members. A set of armor for an outside customer. She toiled over the hot iron and embers until the day had melted away into the night. Satisfied with what she had finished the mare left her blacksmithing station. She only had to move a room away to find her hay covered bed. She found sleep easily, tired from the day's work. Dreams of battle filled her head. Excitement for the next day evident on her face.
