FAERIE DODGE BALL
This is a simple game with a simple objective: to give away adult first-generation Flutter Pae for a side-arc of our meta plot.
:[ Story ]:
- The Fae Clearing is a mysterious meadow, hallowed by Fae and Fairies alike. Supernatural occurrences have been plaguing the land for years. There is an unusual concentration of magic in that meadow, and no modern Pae'il knows why.
Many seasons ago, the Faun's Great Tree of Life, Laisidhiel, lost many acorns in a terrible hurricane. Many of those acorns were never found.
Two of those lost seeds found their way to the Fae Clearing (or did someone plant them there on purpose?). The concentrated magic served as the perfect nutrients for the seeds and they took root. It didn't take long for the magic trees to grow into tall, shimmering trees. The trees have a purple crystalline bark, and silver shimmery leaves. They look nothing like any of the trees found on the entire island.
Laisidhiel acorns + Magic source = seed-producing trees. And we all know what comes from those seeds. Baby Faun! But what happens when those seeds are influenced by an ancient magic?
:[ Birth of the Flutters ]:
- As if commanded by the Trees themselves, the first two seeds hatched and tended to the trees and new buds. After some time, more seeds started to mature. Indilwen and Belwen worked to collect the seeds and nurtured them until they hatched. They called the new little creatures Flutters. The pair led the colony to survive and build a culture for themselves. Somewhere along the lines a rivalry formed between the two females, and the colony separated. Indilwen took her followers to the south and became their queen. Belwen went north to become queen of the Northern colony.
Over the last few seasons, each colony has grown and thrived. They went undetected until recently. Strangers entered the Fae Clearing and found the unique seedpods before they could be collected and put in the nursery. For the first time, strangers laid eyes upon the baby Flutters (affectionately called Paeterpillars).
:[ Dodgeball! (or Why Are We Throwing Faeries?) ]:
- Recently a bunch of seeds hatched. We need adult Flutters to exist in order to have their culture and colonies exist. That is why we're giving away many adults. These adults will be initial establishers of each colony. They will have been hatched then raised by either Indilwen or Belwen. The game is an out-of-character way for us to not only give some adults away, but to decide which colony they are from.
