Take flight as a powerful Elemental dragon, one of their Creations; or even their human or elven Rider! If you need anything feel free to contact a member of staff. Besides that, make yourself at home, and enjoy your time here at DotE!
Dates formatted as: Day/Month 11/02:February Activity Check. 07/08: The island's residents don't know of it yet, but they will soon enough! Introducing The Caverns of Infinite Night. 16/05: We farewell Pine, our dedicated staff member of over five years, and wish her luck in her future endeavours. 23/01: Character spotlight added to the sidebar! Up first is Shydra- prophet of the Dragon Mother, Vaseera.

Sons & Daughters
Criss, son of the Water and Fire Elementals, is an angry and conflicted young dragon with a buried heart of gold. While many dragons are most at home in the sea or the sky, Criss prefers to keep his feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you so very much. But if he could only embrace his Water heritage, he would find that he can breathe underwater just as well as he can breathe air!
Haikal moved through the Chimneys, winding his way around the columns of rock and climbing over broken pieces of the hard material. He glanced back at Tam and smiled. She didn't seem super thrilled about this trip, but they didn't have any other choice. Astraeus had dropped them off in the middle of the chimneys telling them good luck and then promptly left them to their own devices while he went on his merry way God knew where. Probably to talk to Tvialous. Haikal wasn't too thrilled about the turn of events but he couldn't do anything about it but make the best of the day.
Haikal turned to Tam and held out hand to help her up and over a large rock. "C'mon, we're almost there. It'll be worth it, I swear." He was taking her to the Singing Stones. He was sure she'd like the place, but it was for his own sake as well. He was still limping a little bit from yesterday and needed to rest more. Going to the Singing Stones would allow him to sit and rest for a long while. Haikal looked over his shoulder, he could see green between the red stone columns. Green meant the softly rolling valley and the large, pock-marked stones. Green meant the brightly colored flowers and their soft scent. Green meant a fresh undisturbed breeze washing in from the ocean. Green meant peace and happiness. He looked back at Tam and smiled once more.
It was impossible for Tam to put Dragonsdeep entirely out of mind- especially with the Rider's two friends still, so far as she knew, down there- but it was equally impossible to not be cheered by her new surroundings. She followed Haikal's gaze, taking in the far-off greenery first and then the stone columns themselves. It wasn't like the stone in Tivialous' realm, or even that back in her homeland. It was reddish rather than grey, and these columns were far taller than any stone formation she'd seen in past. Tam wondered what purpose they were supposed to serve- a landmark, perhaps, to help Astraeus hone in on a particular point of interest by now long gone? What had Astraeus called them- 'the chimneys'? Were they a vent for something, even now?
She mirrored Haikal's smile, albeit with less enthusiasm. To be sure, she was in a better mood than previously, but some small part of her mind was still consumed by those dark caverns and that slavering beast. Thinking about this stonework helped somewhat, but it was still a far from perfect solution.
"It had better be worth it," she said, keeping her tone light. "I don't go hiking for the fun of it."
ooc: a bit too noisy here right now for me to fully concentrate, but I wanted to get a reply done. Hope this works for you!
"It'll be worth it," Haikal reassured her. He then turned and continued on, weaving around the columns of stone that were much smaller in both height and girth than the ones they had passed previously: another definite sign that they were in the outskirts of the Labyrinth. Stepping out from between two columns the sight of the green, flower-dotted valley met his gaze. The large grey stones stood out clearly against the greenery and beyond it, in the distance the blue-grey expanse of the sea stretch out almost endlessly. A gentle breeze kissed his face and then moved on to Tam to play with the girl's hair.
A smile played on Haikal's lips as he glanced back at his fellow rider. "See?" He turned back to look across the valley and mused, "I don't think we'll be able to hear them at this distance. We're gonna have to get closer."

Samantha: And Paradox was amazing Dae! I enjoyed writing Adutaine opposite them. =)

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.

DaeSiggil: Oops, I know I haven't often helped by disappearing as I did. But still thinking about this place! <3

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

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.

27th: Wow! You got to have dinner with the authors? 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.
Aug 20, 2017 21:03:22 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

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
