OOC Updates
9/13/17 — The brand-new PvP system has been officially announced, and is now in effect across Baraenor. Please see this update for more information! With this, we've also created a new forum called The Coliseum so players can practice writing fight posts without putting their characters in jeopardy.

9/2/17 — The Sept/Oct 'Spooky' Board Wide Event has officially been released, opening up a new forum for posting! For full detailed information on what the event involves, check out both threads in this forum.

8/31/17 — Happy (very belated) six months to Baraenor! We've added a few neat things to both IC and OOC profiles, which can be found in this update. Sign-ups for Scribble Wars, our first-ever posting contest, are also open until September 3rd! Players may enter with as many characters as they want, so don't forget to register for the chance at some very nice rewards!

8/20/17 — An official site update has been posted here. Some new changes have been made in regards to The Giving Tree, Gem Shops and Tasks so be sure to look it over. We've also introduced Character Appreciation Week and Of the Month Nominations so be looking for those in the future!

8/7/17 — An update has been posted here. If everyone could take the time to read over and input any ideas or opinions it would be greatly appreciated! Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded. Due to smaller numbers at the current time, we have opted to close two of the prides in order to try and fill the remaining ones a bit better. Kyvar will remain open and ready for reclaiming as it was one of the original prides on the forum.

7/31/17 — Cootie will be gone from August 3rd-18th, on a trip to Japan! Please direct any concerns to Jolee during this time, as she'll be back from her absence then to keep things up and running. Cootie will still try to pop in on Discord and the cbox to check on everyone, but otherwise expect kind of a lull while everyone's out traveling before school starts back for a lot of players. Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

7/24/17 — We are still accepting entires for our Flora and Fauna contest! This is a neat opportunity to contribute directly to the world of Baraenor, and earn something for your efforts! We've seen several new faces around lately, so thank you to everyone that's been posting our advertisments. Keep it up so we can bring even more new players into our community!

7/12/17 — The Starfall Contest has ended now and the skies have started to return to normal. Congratulations to everyone who won in the OOC or IC contest. =) In other news, Tabs has opted to take a break from Adminship for a little while and relax so if you have any questions feel free to inquire with Jolee or any of the other staff members as well as posting inquiries in the Soundboard forum for questions and suggestions. We will be attempting to go through the site soon and seeing if anything could be improved upon so input is always appreciated.

6/27/17 — The Starfall Contest is quickly drawing to a close, but there's still time to participate and nifty prizes to be won! The guidebook has been updated with all of the newest changes, as well as a few tweaks for clarity after feedback from the playerbase and other observations. You can read more about those here!

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway! We're still working out some kinks and making new gameplay additions, the latest of which can be read about in this update. Staff auditions have also opened up, and interested parties can have a look here at the open positions and how to apply!

5/25/17 — Lots of updates and changes are coming to Baraenor! With the removal of the pride limit - how many lions will be searching to stake their claims on their own lands? With the addition of Woman Empowerment ladies of Baraenor have just a little more umph.. But they still have to work for it! Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

04/24/17 — There have been several updates made recently, highlighting tweaks in the fighting system, a task overhaul, gridlines on the map and much more! Check them out here and here for more information. We also have a shiny new Game Development board, where we'll be discussing anything new and exciting with everyone!

03/19/17 — As we move into our third month of being open, we see some accounts going inactive. Make sure that you guys are posting at least once a month to keep characters from falling inactive! And remember, if a character under 1 year goes inactive they will be considered deceased. Keep up the posts, guys!

02/26/17 — Things have been said, and heard! A new update comes on the horizon and with it comes a fighting system that we hope will keep the 'hands off' approach, while remaining fair to everyone involved. You can find it Here!

02/20/17 — To all our lovely members, we provide a brief update to let everyone know that we now have a special forum under Art Corner where we are housing all the wonderful editable line arts that we have been able to get with your gracious donations. These are available for member use only and password protected so if you are wishing to use them please PM Tabs or Jolee in order to get the password. Currently there is only an infant cub line art available, but more will be added as Ale-Tie completes them. =)

02/13/17 — It's been a week since our opening, and we've put out an Update!. In this update, we welcome a new staffer, and two new prides! Don't forget the current contests we have going on! Some will end coming up here soon.

02/07/17 — We have a couple of contests going on right now, Advertising contest which has a few of our breed only (And non purchaseable) pelt colors as prizes. Skinning contest with Gems as prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for a Valentines day Scavenger hunt as well! In the meantime, we'd like to give a HUGE thank you to both Pessy and Vix for donating towards making Baraenor! And to the players who have joined up in the last few days. Without the players, there would be no site. They have our love!

02/05/17 — Baraenor is now officially open! Players may begin to start creating OOC and IC accounts. Thank you to everyone that has helped us get to this point in time. If you are new to Baraenor, please refer to our Grand Opening announcement for further details and don't forget to read over the required reading in the Guides. If you happen to find any bugs in coding, please report them on this thread.
IC Updates
9/9/17 — The ocean recedes, forging a path to the mysterious island northeast of the mainland. However, it's an eerie locale, veiled by fog and ghostly voices that beckon the living to come and explore. Surely there's some correlation between it and the wandering souls that have been released from their bonds to the Memoire Fields, drifting across Baraenor as they did in life, searching for the reason behind their newfound freedom.

8/31/2017Anima Falls King Nevermore discovers the gruesome scene of his son's death and wife's capture, forcing him to abandon his territory and leave Baraenor in search of the culprit. Takira "Taske" Neron becomes the Empress of the forest in his stead, the shift in power quiet and undisturbed. On the opposite side of the map, Maranon Basin is founded in Mystall Ridge by Empress Devana and her mate, Helios, and becomes Baraenor's northernmost pride.

8/20/2017 — The unrelenting heat takes a toll on its inhabitants, but time marches on and not even the season can halt the rise and fall of monarchs across the land. When Kyvar Morass is left vacant once again, it is reclaimed by Livanna Varg, such that the jungle sees its first Empress in the wake of a harshly patriarchal past. Azil Hollow, having outlived its usefulness as a sanctuary in the mountains, is also abandoned and vanishes from the map - at least for now.

7/24/2017 — Baraenor is on the cusp of a heated summer, and with it the promise that the turmoil will ebb away a little - if only for now. Hard-pressed former queen Isadora takes over the abandoned Azil Hollow as its Empress and a young and amibitious Kaiden lays claim to the jungle of Kyvar Morass, while Mordred ascends the throne of Murkwood Grotto not long after his brother vanished. The survivors of the clash between the Delekr family and their outcasts are seeking vengeance, claiming the wives left behind as their own or holding them prisoner as punishment.

7/10/17 — In the wake of the strange astral phenomena, cubs are born with fur like the night sky in Anima Falls, and the tensions between Azil Hollow and Kyvar Morass finally erupt into a bloody battle on the grasslands. Four are killed - including Azil's king and one of his children - leaving the desolate Hollow in the paws of its young heir. Not long afterwards, Kyvar Morass and Murkwood Grotto both lose their kings. Will others take up their mantles, or are they destined to fade into obscurity?

6/27/17 — The moons grow closer and closer, one threatening to eclipse the other, the zenith of this strange phenomenon fast approaching as tensions run high across Baraenor. Skellryn Vale sees a new king not long after the death of its empress, when her heir Lilith is captured by Kyvar Morass and a lion named Artaxias claims the abandoned prideland. Another Delekr has taken over Murkwood Grotto in the wake of the prior king's disappearance, though the site of his claim is anything but peaceful, as the newly crowned Lennox immediately challenges for Rakel, a lioness of Mirah Shores, after a few heated words. Elsewhere, a strange pool charged with moonlight has revealed itself in Ethereal Forest - where did it come from, and what could it mean?

6/10/17 — A massive power shift consumes the land when Korrin is run from his territory and stripped of his name by his father Rhask and eldest brother Haru upon their arrival. Korrin and his loyalists flee to the mountains and establish Azil Hollow, while Haru himself takes the Kyvar Morass throne. Two other prides pop up elsewhere - Skellryn Vale and Navtiv Valley - while young Delekr Havok lays claim to the again abandoned Steppes, renaming it Murkwood Grotto and moving it to Ragefire Peaks. The heavens seem to be mimicking the chaos down below as the twin moons move ever closer together; stars are raining across the sky and a particularly large meteor has made landfall in Perisod Moor.

5/22/17 — When the King of Aellexus Steppes unexpectedly dies, the chance to claim the title emerges. Within minutes of the occurrence, a lion named Nevermore attempts to claim Ethereal Forest for his own. No more than 4 hours after, a lion named Vyper attempts to secure the savanna. Will these males go unchallenged, or will they be forced to fight for the title? Read more here and here.

5/12/17 — After the unexpected disbandment of Kyvar Morass, Korrin seeks to reclaim his title. Will he go unchallenged, or will blood be shed once more by the lions of the jungle? Read more here.

5/9/17 — True to what we've grown to expect, there is always something big going on in Mirah Shores. This time, it is a battle for the title of Queen. Hannibal, a fairly new addition to the pride, has her sights set on something big. After regaining her title so recently, Isadora loses it quicker than most of us expected. Newly crowned and ready to flaunt it, Hannibal goes so far as to invite the King's brother Barbas to her den for the night. Are more cubs on the horizon for this eclectic pride?

5/9/17 — Kirena of Mirah Shores, who just lost her only remaining cub (Sabryn) to a crocodile and has been outranked by a slave despite being the King's wife, is losing her mind. Not only does she find her assumed deceased son (Exodus) alive and well; she does not believe that he is actually her son. Sure that she would not be allowed to keep the boy due to feeling neglected, Kirena intends to alert Ezekael and leave it at that, though when Ezekael arrives, he solidifies Kirena's thoughts by calling for Isadora to care for the cub. Kirena, now feeling even further betrayed and unhinged, calls Isadora to a death match! Isadora, contrary to what we've seen of her battling in the past, goes for the kill without a second thought. Ezekael attempts to calm the situation, but it escalates regardless, one wife intent on killing another. Coincidentally enough, Graham from Iron Mountains has been loitering around the territory, even going so far as to having a private conversation with Kirena in an attempt to figure out what her turmoil is all about. The King of the Mountains leaps to the defense of Kirena, intent on turning the tables of the Death Match onto Isadora instead. Somehow Isadora manages to dodge Graham entirely, and the Death Match halts abruptly. Barbas slides in to seek compromise and diplomacy, but Graham has had enough with being nice to this pride that seems to be in shambles due to outside forces. He demands that Kirena be released to his care, and Ezekael gives her up like he'd never married her at all. Kirena flees in one direction, Chani the cub flees in another, and Graham leaves with the few members of his pride that have shown up.

5/9/17 — Just when you think things are settling down, two lionesses are killed in freak accidents caused by Mother Nature! Civali of Kyvar Morass is crushed beneath a fallen tree, leaving her husband Mordred and her son Dogo to grieve. Sabryn, a cub of Kirena's, of Mirah Shores is eaten alive by a massive crocodile who seems now to be a permanent fixture of Avaar Lagoon. Heartbreakingly enough, Kirena takes this loss extremely hard, having lost her son shortly after the litter was born. Shortly thereafter, Voluspa, current Queen, after giving birth and claiming Isadora's cubs as her own, travels to Iron Mountains in search of the King. Graham is quick to answer, and asks her what she might need. Suddenly we see Voluspa as never before, looking over her shoulder as though followed, crying out for help from the heterochromatic King of the Mountains. She tells him that Ezekael raped Isadora! Seeking justice, questioning his alliance to the Shores, Graham hustles his way to Fessinger Grove to find answers. Once there, with Ezekael and most of his pride (only one child is curious enough to check out the commotion) present, Graham explains his presence and calmly asks for the truth. Ezekael denounces Voluspa as Queen, stating it was always Isadora, but Voluspa, newly made slave, proves him wrong by using her Witch Doctor ability to summon an ancestral leader who will answer two questions truthfully. Graham breaks the alliance between Iron Mountains and Mirah Shores, leaving in disgust.

5/9/17 — Meanwhile, the new King of Iron Mountains has received the perfect initiation.. a challenge for his crown! Vyper, new to Baraenor but ambitious enough to rival all inhabitants, eventually succumbs to Graham, leaving the Mountain stronghold exactly as it was. On the northern side of the realm, more misfortune has befallen Mirah Shores, their Archduchess Tishala in particular. After happening upon a rogue lioness in Rysen Grasslands, the females are approached by Kyvar Morass' infamous grouch, Mordred. In his usual fashion, the red-maned male lays claim to the rogue immediately, and even Gersemi the Queen arrives to welcome their newest addition. At first it seems all will be well, for Tishala attempts to leave without a fight, but Mordred does the unthinkable and tries to claim her, despite her already belonging to Mirah Shores! Quick to the rescue is the King himself, charging in to protect his pride member. Absolute chaos erupts when Ezekael's brother Barbas, Heir to the throne, follows along and attempts to even the score by claiming Gersemi, who is unknowingly pregnant at this time. Korrin, her husband, descends on Barbas to protect Gersemi, calling for war between their prides in the process. One by one the crowd piles in to witness the majesty of Ezekael vs Mordred for Mirah Shores and Korrin vs Barbas for Gersemi. During this intense instance, Korrin is defeated by Barbas, making Gersemi a member of Mirah Shores, and while Korrin is down, his brother Gideon swoops in to claim the crown for Kyvar Morass'. Ezekael defeats Mordred in the end, leaving the prides to disperse to care for their wounded and process the state of hostility with their closest neighbor.

5/9/17 — Continuing on the same train of thought from our last update, we have surprising news from Mirah Shores. No sooner than Voluspa charging in for the kill did Isadora attempt to escape, only to be thwarted by her own brother-in-law, Barbas, and Voluspa herself. Ezekael is not present in this moment, when Voluspa strikes Isadora down to the rank of slave (a first in Baraenor's young life), for attempting to abort her litter. Gideon, who at this time was still Kyvar's sub-King, pays witness to all of the madness which unfolds here, giving him an intimate look into the workings of this oceanic pride.

04/5/17 — Much has happened since our last update! Voluspa has challenged Isadora to a death match after finding her attempting to abort her cubs, while also pregnant herself! Aellexus Steppe has a new King, Evander, and has started accepting members at a growing rate. It seems that testosterone has run rampant through the lands of Baraenor, especially Kyvar Morass. Korrin has a new Queen, who's filled to the brim with his young; he's also chased his brother, Gideon, from the land for choosing a woman over family! Both brothers have maimed one another, each party sporting a marred eye worthy of a patch. Iron Mountains has also had its fair share of drama, Graham meeting an old lover unexpectedly, and becoming the acting King of the mountains while Pallas journeys to find inner peace after delivering the morbid news of the death of Daphne Varg and encountering a cub in a similar situation. That is not all! Mother Nature has also run amok, dispersing singing creatures of all sorts to all the prides; what cooky things does the Mother have planned for us? Stay tuned and you just might find out.

03/19/17 — Pallas has become the new King of Iron Mountains! Meanwhile, Ezekael has found himself quite verulent and has started the process of siring multiple litters! The Varg are making themselves known as the family continues to grow, and with Daphne being returned to them - what dangers await the rest of the valley? More and more lions have stepped into the valley, and things are heating up across the board.

03/03/17 — Things are heating up as more and more lions filter into the lands of Baraenor! Hrungnir and Samuel clash once again over rulership of Aellexus Steppe, with the younger of the two once more emerging victorious. Tensions have run high between Mirah Shores and Kyvar Morass as their kings nearly come to blows over members. Whales have washed up on the beaches, drawing many lions from the edges to see what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, Apollyon has moved the pride once known as Qirin Glade to the Emerald Vale, giving rise to a new pride The Iron Mountains.

NOV | As the last month of Fall arrives one can feel the approaching bitter wind of winter. Temperatures continue to fall and the strange occurrences with Lost Souls running rampant doesn't help the matters any. A chill has fallen upon Baraenor and prey begins to become more scarce. Winter's bite can be felt at night as one's breath can be seen, the first signs that the impending winter may bring difficult times with it's grasp.
