No New Posts The Caverns of Infinite Night

A series of five connected caverns in the lowest reaches of Dragonsdeep, which are so heavily shadowed as to give the concept of ‘pitch black’ a whole new meaning. A draft passes through these caverns from some unseen point, but it smells of stagnant water and decaying foliage, and is far from pleasant. Here, the Elementals will face the Creation of Many once and for all.

No New Posts Dragonsdeep

The Dark territory was once a great forested area, lush in coniferous foliage and abundant in wildlife. However, after Ysera's rampage; the whole of the territory was consumed by the sea, leaving nothing more than a tiny shore bearing the entrance to Dragonsdeep. Dragonsdeep is where the Dark Elemental and his Creations now reside: an enormous, complex network of subterranean caves, crossing beneath all territories- though the caverns under the Earth territory are off limits, at Ysera's request. Stone dragons, massive in their height, guard the entrance, obeying Icarus's every whim. These caves are hardly predictable, and are filled with many foreign creatures. Truly, anything can happen in Dragonsdeep.

A narrow tunnel, averaging a little over a metre across, leads to a sudden drop. Here a seemingly bottomless pit extends below, whilst in the darkness above can be seen tiny pinpoints of light denoting inch-wide holes in the distant roof. From the edge of the precipice, the far wall can be seen by none but the most keen eyed of dragons. This place is enormous, and yet leaving is extremely difficult, for while it is easy enough to fly about in the massive space the only escape is through the narrow tunnel which serves as both entrance and exit.

Unless one is willing to risk a blind plummet into the inky blackness below.

They would then find, after some time, still and silent water: inky black in the absence of lights, but on occasion lit from below by some species of small creature which phosphoresce intermittently. This water-pit in itself is of indeterminable depth, and more than just tiny phosphorescent life-forms lurk within its depths...

If one were to hold their breath and swim upward through a sizeable channel long enough, they would find their way out into the ocean alongside the Death territory. But all of this would take a long time and put the swimmer at the mercy of those creatures which dwell within- all in all, it's far easier to just exit via the entry tunnel.

No New Posts Gathering Cavern

A massive cavern within Dragonsdeep, which Icarus has decreed shall be used for future Gatherings in his territory. It is an oasis of colour and life amongst the bland stretch of tunnel leading from the Dragonsdeep entrance. Mushrooms in vibrant colours brighten up the room, at the centre of which lies a shimmering pond. Bright blue grass and colourful mushrooms also adorn this location. Some of the plants and fungi actually glow, casting bizarre alien lights around this dark cave in the heart of the earth.

Dark Territory
The Dark territory was once a great forested area, lush in coniferous foliage and abundant in wildlife. However, after the Earth Elemental's rampage, the whole of the territory was consumed by the sea, leaving nothing more than a tiny shore and the opening of a giant underground cavern, which connects all the existing territories.

Samantha: And Paradox was amazing Dae! I enjoyed writing Adutaine opposite them. =) Apr 23, 2018 12:02:57 GMT
Samantha: I get that Blazeh, no worries. <3 The site is pretty dead, it was just me and 27th and we couldn't keep it going on our own. Apr 23, 2018 12:00:45 GMT
DaeSiggil: Oops, I know I haven't often helped by disappearing as I did. But still thinking about this place! <3 Apr 18, 2018 16:11:08 GMT
Verridith: Hey hon, love you guys but haven't seen anything happen since 2017 ;A; hope all are well! But have to remove you from BTACD's sister sites. I'm sorry! </3 </3 </3 Apr 6, 2018 12:22:38 GMT
Samantha: Exactly! It can be tricky, back home most of my friends are just from school, university or work. xD And it was lovely. They were all so lovely, the ones I was with spent the whole time talking about history, it was fun and edumacational. Sept 30, 2017 10:02:29 GMT
27th: Wow! You got to have dinner with the authors? :D Making new friends is always nice. I know that struggle as I don't socialize like my peers. Sept 12, 2017 18:00:11 GMT
Samantha: that great at doing haha (I don't like going out to parties and stuff, which seems to be the main way people my age socialise.) Sept 11, 2017 23:11:00 GMT
Samantha: -looks at timestamp on last reply- Eeeek, apologies for the delay! But yeah it was AMAZING. My favourite author signed my favourite book, and we even had dinner with the authors one of the nights. Plus, I made some new friends, which I don't tend to be Sept 11, 2017 23:10:37 GMT
27th: That sounds very cool! I would have loved going to something like that. :o Aug 20, 2017 21:03:22 GMT
Samantha: Was cool. Aug 19, 2017 21:10:39 GMT
Samantha: It just means 'science fiction and fantasy.' So it was a conference for authors of these things, and scholars who study them! Aug 19, 2017 21:10:27 GMT
27th: Glad you had a good time in Sweden! What is SFF? Aug 11, 2017 16:08:48 GMT
Samantha: Sorry for the disappearance. I was in Sweden for an SFF conference- it was pretty cool! Aug 11, 2017 10:48:27 GMT
Samantha: It's sad, yeah. We need more members to have more staff, we need more staff to keep the place active, and we need to have the place active to get more members. Sort of a vicious cycle. =P Jul 31, 2017 16:46:13 GMT
Samantha: The problem is that the main person who likes to run contests, Riv, also has a tendency to disappear. xD And I don't have the time and the energy to run this place proper on my own. Jul 31, 2017 16:45:38 GMT
27th: Yes, it is a lot of work. Though, I agree it could be worth the effort. As far as contests go, we've tried them here at DotE before. I don't know how well any of them worked but we it couldn't hurt to try. Jul 30, 2017 5:53:42 GMT
R: Could try a contest? Jul 29, 2017 4:40:04 GMT
shadow: Well. Yea. That also is a lot of work. It would be worth it though Jul 28, 2017 4:12:51 GMT
27th: Well, recruitment would be key to that. Contacting the members we already have to try and get them to participate here would also be part of that. Jul 26, 2017 15:52:29 GMT
shadow: I wonder what would happen if we tried to make it alive again Jul 25, 2017 19:48:19 GMT
