First topic message reminder :

The Festival of ascendants, announced by the Archon Tenebris was to be embraced by all Dragons to be welcome within the Ebonwing Isles and Shadow’s Refuge rather than its usual seclusion only for those of Nightwing blood. The Festival traditional emphasises a veneration on the ancestors and those who had come before, yet for these current days the theme was placed upon comradely, community and entertainment to allow Dragons of all Tribes to find merriment and revelry in a time otherwise plagued with death and destruction ever since the Monster scourge bore down upon the world. The Archon found it fitting that a festival such as this what was born to celebrate natural bounty, venerating the fallen, honouring the gods and warding off bad luck was certainly needed not only for Nightwings but to all. So the invitation was just that, for all Dragons should they wish to come to Shadow’s Refugee, for a night of festivity. To this end, custom dictates one would usually wear a mask, Nightwings in particular would wear a bone like helm in the fashion of a skull over their visage to mimic the fallen ancestors they revere.

The Shadow's Refuge was refurbished and revitalised for a ceremonial occasion unlike any it had hosted before even despite the restricted resources the Nightwing Tribe could now muster, the ramparts and battlements of the Citadel and its sister institutes such as the magisterium were decorated and cosmetically made appealing with a cohort of banners and sigils reflecting the dominion of the NightWings pursuits. The bright colours and hues of blue in the form of banners filled the rocky plateau and the most central and prominent position of the Citadel itself. Attendants of the Citadel would flock to the centre of the courtyard, welcoming guests passionately and leading them up the towering stairs to the grand hall where the large draconian influenced decorated doors remained open welcoming all those within.

The large atrium which was the Grand hall was filled with works of Majesty from marble sculptures depicting Dragon imagery to the columns which supported the vast roof which seemed to have etched workings of roses and their thorns spiralling upwards across the pillars to the ever looming ceiling above. An awe-inspiring table of the highest carpentry work was then positioned like a horseshoe around the entire hall, upon it marvels of exotic and culturally favourable foods of fresh kills were displayed for the feast come. With braziers lining the walls of the antechamber which was the Grand Hall a warming humming coo filled the air in the form of a tenor tune sung by several artists which stood below the far end stain glass window which depicted a young Tenebris, his wings brazenly flared open, engrossing the entire bottom half of the stained glass window, while the depiction of the moon was risen above the iconography of Tenebris, heralding him in the Light. It would be a time to celebrate being alive, celebrate the wonders of creation and be one within a join community of all tribes. The air tasted so heavenly due to the fresh food, every delicious thing ready to be shared with friends.

The Archon, Tenebris himself already stood behind the head of the table on the dais what was usually his position for official greetings and ceremonies, waiting for others to arrive and make themselves comfortable, his imposing figure made ever more so by the adorned silver he wore across his horns and a mask decorated to appear as though a skull, with sapphires embedded around the eyes. From the far end of the hall his silhouette bore across the atrium as his eerie sapphire gaze remained dispassionate in their personal scrutiny to examine all who entered. His posture was filled with pride and regal grace as a warm smile spread across his otherwise austere features as he patiently awaited for the hall to be filled, while he did not wear the harness usually needed to restrict Mephala, allowing her to reign free this night, there would be a cushioned gold gelded stool beside his dais meant for her to be on as they welcomed any guests.

Tenebris's Bio
A look at one of Tenebris's Publications as a Scholar

"Destiny isn't a matter of chance, its a matter of choice. Only we can claim our Destiny when the path opens" ~ Tenebris lamenting.

"Oftentimes in reality, the realists are in the position of the antihero. Neither those on the side of good, nor the side of bad really trust them, as their truth is universal." ~ Tenebris, Archon of the Ebonwing Potentate.

Post by Astral on Sun Jul 21, 2019 6:51 pm

Astral was frantically searching the outskirts of Kryo. She'd already checked everywhere near their home and in Kryo. There was no telling how long she had been gone before Astral noticed. Some of the children were playing outside and she went inside to cook up some lunch. She called everyone in and noticed Aurora hadn't joined. Astral figured she'd join them soon enough, that girl rarely turned down food. When she didn't Astral went outside to go look for her but there was no sign. With each passing hour she was missing Astral's panic grew. There was no telling what kind of trouble that girl could get herself into.

Finally Aurora's name was spoken at some sort of festival in her fathers territory. Astral groaned out loud. For the most part everyone still thought she was dead but worse than that Baldirak was there and was the one to speak her name. Probably spotted the resemblance pretty quickly. She was kinda worried about what he might do to her. This would be so much easier if Aurora was just playing around in a human city or pretty much anywhere but there. She would have to disguise herself. Since her father and Baldirak were there Nightwings and Earthwings weren't an option. But Kenina wasn't there. A Firewing might be her best bet. There isn't likely to be many Lightwings, Skywings, Icewings, and especially Seawings there and that would only draw more attention. She could do a lesser species but she was aware of her fathers unfavorable view of them. Firewing it was. Astral grew to a total height of fifty feet tall. Her unique Nightfury proportions shifted to a typical strong Firewing build. Going male would make the disguise even more perfect but she wasn't quiet prepared to got that far. The color of her scales took on a solid red color. Her frill ears shifted into two horns growing out behind her head. Her wings got changed from less of a bat like structure. It wasn't long till she was completely unrecognizable.

Astral teleported to outside the entrance out of sight and then flew the rest of the way there. Making her way in she had to admit after being with humans for so long it did feel a little strange seeing dragons all around. Astral quickly found her daughter taking a ride atop Baldirak. She spoke inside Aurora's mind but she wouldn't be able to reply. 'Young lady you are in so much trouble! What are you doing here?' Probably a dumb question considering she wouldn't be getting an answer at the moment.

Aurora's body language took a drastic turn as she heard her mothers voice in her head. Her wings tensed up against the side of her body and she crouched trying to shrink herself. The frills on her head dropping.

'I'm the big bold red Firewing that just walked in. Fly over to me. We're going home. And if you're good I'll consider going easy on you.'

Aurora quickly took off from Baldirak's snout and made her was to the one she thought might be her mother. Mom had once tossed dad out on the top of a mountain when she got mad at him. If she could in any way reduce her sentence Aurora would gladly take it. Beside now she knew where this place was anyway.

Aurora landed on the head of the one she hoped was mom. "Is this you mom?" She asked.

"Yes Aurora, lets go before we attract any attention."

"I am," the Earth King confirmed as he sat, curling his tail around his paws. "Actually, I will get even bigger than I am now. I am still growing, you see. Hm. Speaking of growing, Young One, you ought to do a little more growing yourself, before you go wandering the world on your own. It is not safe right now, not even for one like you. Not even for a giant EarthWing like myself." He indicated his various scars and yet-to-fully-heal wounds with small flicks of his tail. "Surely your mother has told you the world is currently teeming with danger."

Before Baldirak could ask or say anything more, Aurora suddenly flew off. He followed her flight and watched as she landed on the head of a FireWing. Baldirak knew almost everyone in attendance, able to identify them solely by the vibrations their pawsteps made. But this FireWing... he had never seen her before, let alone ever felt the vibrations created by her paws. His pale blue eyes narrowed as he stood and made his way to the female. "I've never seen you before, Child of Fire. Are you a Rogue?"

Chogath smiled, dipping his head in respect. "I will eagerly await it, then. May the gods light your way, Archon." It didn't take a genius to figure out that the Archon was in a hurry, so he stepped back to allow him to leave. He noted the shiny dragon had shown as well. An impressive specimen, to be sure. However, as much use as he would be, he was a bit too sparkly for Chogath's taste in minion. Still, it would be much better to get to know this fellow than to just walk away. After all they at least had one thing in common; wanting something from the Archon.

"So what brings you here, friend? Other than the festivities, of course," he chuckled, joined by Kog.

Noctis Jr. arrives at the festival especially excited since the date is also shared with the day of his hatching. Eclipse and Noctis Sn. follow close behind with their younger NightWings in tow.

Noctis, go have fun. Just don't stir up trouble like you did last year.

"Okay Mom, I promise." He walks off while looking around

Behave yourself son, if you anger the Archon like last year. We won't be able to withhold his judgement.

Noctis Jr. nods as he checks out the festivities on display.
