    COTY

    SOCHI -- Year 207

    QOTY

    "He will inevitably decide that it all fell apart because he had orchestrated it and he will carry the blame like a stone in his chest, too. He will add it to the pile and perhaps, someday when there are enough stones to weigh him down, he will walk into the sea and let them drown him" -- Kensley, written by Savage


    Lands in Lands
    The Jungle
    The heat hits first, a solid wall of hot, sticky air. The trees hit second. Massive, impossible trees that grow nearly on top of one another, strung with vines. The ground is littered with underbrush, and it takes careful and practiced steps to navigate the terrain here. The spirit of the Jungle can be seen flickering through the trees, often in the form of a jaguar. Near the center of the kingdom, the trees clear. The Sisters gather here, and a large river runs through the clearing. The Sisters hold initiations here and swear themselves to the Sisterhood. In doing so, they are granted tattoos that mark them for life. Those who betray the Jungle will find their tattoo replaced with a red X.
    The Tundra
    A wall of ice climbs into the sky around the border of this kingdom. There is one entrance, making it nearly impossible to sneak into the Tundra unnoticed. In the winter, the kingdom is buried beneath snow. In the warmer months, the land is dotted with small shrubs and grasses. An old ruin lies in the barren land, with a cave at the center. Here, the Brothers face their demons and emerge as a member of the brotherhood, marked by a personal scar from their endeavor.
    The Gates
    Everything here is green. Beautiful, bright green. The land is sprawling, a mix of meadows and rolling hills. Trees dot the landscape, and a forest borders one edge of the kingdom. Flowers spring up from the grass and add pops of color throughout the kingdom. In the center sits a massive tree – the Mother Tree – with branches that droop to the ground. Around the tree is a garden, watered by a magical spring. Those that eat from the garden are compelled to speak the truth.
    The Falls
    The kingdom looks like a fairytale. Small forests dot the landscape, creating some natural borders from the outside world. The kingdom is mainly rolling hills and flat grassland. A river winds its way through the land, leading to an immense cliff and spectacular waterfall in the center of the kingdom. These waters have healing properties, and can be used by any loyal member of the Falls.
    The Chamber
    Tall pines trees stand sentry when you approach the border of the Chamber, cloaked in mist. The kingdom appears foreboding, but as you progress, the trees gives way to clear land. There is a mix of grass and rock and dirt strewn throughout the kingdom. In the center of the kingdom there is the distinct thump thump of a heart beneath your feet. A tall pine tree stands near the sound of the heart, burning perpetually. With a blood sacrifice, loyal members of the Chamber may be able to glimpse the future in the eternal flame.
    The Deserts
    Looming red rocks and saguaro slowly give way to dry, cracked earth, and then rolling sand dunes. In the center of the kingdom stands a massive oak tree, surrounded by tough grass and sparse bushes and a large oasis. Further in is a sparkling, crystal clear pool which houses the Spirit of the Deserts, who protects the residents of the Deserts and may even grant wishes to the worthy.
    The Dale
    Rolling hills and lush green meet the horizon here. Rivers wind their way through the hills. The center of the kingdom lies inside the hills where the land is relatively flat. Trees dot the landscape and provide shade from the sun. Wildflowers can be see growing in the spring, and limestone is in abundance here. A magic pool provides the residents with a local watering hole. Drinking from this pool allows a horses soul to become visible in the form of a ghostly animal.
    The Valley
    As you approach the Valley, tall mountains frame the path into the land. A wolf pack patrols the border of this kingdom, and does not take kindly to those that mean the Valley harm. The ground here is rocky, dotted with grass and trees. The vegetation grows thicker in places, forming pockets of forest twined with vines. In the center of the kingdom, in the heart of the Valley, stands a meadow where the citizens of the Valley gather.
