Ithilaeglir: The land of the Gwilith. Here they make their homes in the mountain side. Often in places only another Gwilith with their beautiful wings would be able to reach. Living in this remote region, their homes are well protected, accessible only to other Mearh who are brave enough to try and scale the heights. Not much is known about their habits but when they are glimpsed, some say bright streamers were being twirled about.
Ostglinn: The grassy plains where the Laegil make their home. Well suited to hard work, they often make their living farming the land or raising livestock on the lush grass. For those that agriculture is not to their calling, becoming a tradesmen or merchant was common.
Erynbein: A vast and mysterious forest, filled with strange creatures and the elusive nature spirits. Few dare to venture into these dark woods for dark and disorienting they can be, but for the Ista they call it home. To them the woods are not foreboding but welcoming and only they seem to be able to navigate its depths. Not much is known about them but some say strange lights can be seen coming from the deep woods at night. If they need to trade it will be with the crystal jewelry they create, with such beautiful crystals that are not found anywhere else.
Dorlaew: A bustling township, here Mearas of all kinds gather to trade their wares. The nobility and gentry live in the castle that sits high above on a hill and overlooks the town below.
Mimloch: Home of the Mim, a very strange sort of Mearh. Gwilith, Laegil, and Ista are all found within this region but they all seem to be half-sized! They stick to themselves, and often overlooked if heading into town (the tallest of them only reaching 4ft!), few seem to know they even exist.
Gaearon: The deep sea. Fishermearh often tell tales of Mearas with jeweled fish tails instead of feet! The Aelin they call them, sirens of the sea. Most think of them as stories of fantasy but just when the tale is about to die out, a new "sighting" will be told and the rumors begin anew.
✿Mearas must be 1 month into Adult stage before breeding ✿Mearas have 2-3 foals, Owner(s) of parent ponies may only keep one foal. ✿Extra babies are possible by .........- Pray for Blessing from the Gods (RP Option) -and/or- .........- Mearas are Life-Mated -and/or- .........- Rare limited quantity Herbs in Item Shop ✿Female or "Carrier" Mearas may breed once every 2 months ✿ If a Mearh has more than 5 foals from 1 breeding then he/she must wait 1 extra month before breeding again. ✿Any extra babies can be gifted by the individuals to other Gaians or given away by free raffle or contest. Owners cannot profit from the foals. ✿Breeding between Cosplay/Custom Mearas is the same process for normal Mearas but only lineart edits/colorings/mutations may be passed down - clothing/special items may not. ✿Non-RPers may only claim 1 breeding slot per month ✿RPers can breed whenever they can get a slot but individual ponies still have the timeline imposed on them. This only applies to the Mearh who have the foal, the "sires" may go and impregnate another Mearas but not at the same time (i.e. a Mearh cannot be listed as a parent in 2 separate slots at the same time). ✿ Each parent RPer must also provide a link to their journal that contains a minimum of 5 RPs of how their Mearas met and the lead-up to the babies. Or both link to the shared journal made for this purpose. ✿ Each of the "breeding" RPs must be at least a paragraph long or equivalent (in cases which the Mearas' "romance" had been an ongoing RP before the decision to breed) ✿Mearas will age at a base rate - baby: 2 weeks, child: 3 weeks, teen:4 weeks
Currently Breeding is: Open
-Standard: 20k Any items will NOT pass to foals. Foals will be either mother OR father's species, not a mutation of both.
-Edited: 40k Items/mutations will spread to foals at random. Foals have a chance of being dual species.
- A Throwback baby is one that has the chance of being a species that is not one of the parent species but rather that of an ancestor.
(Large mutations such as custom wings will not be passed down on the standard breeding)

General RP info
❀RP is not mandatory
❀RP Points can be gained and use in place of gold
❀Gained from general RP
❀RPers can apply for faster growing by filling out Growth Forms.
❀Still under discussion how points are gained but perhaps for every 5 RPs posted, minimum of 5 sentences, you get 1 RP Point. Have people number their RP posts every 5 they type, can be in parenthesis in the corner, or just go 1,2,3, etc every post.
❀Points go towards the Item Shop and Hair Salon items
❀As this is a fantasy world, magic is possible but only if one has Unicorn blood
❀Earth ponies never really were concerned about magic, most may have a "green thumb" or have seemingly really good luck and such but it would take alot of work for and Earth pony to train and do anything that a Unicorn could do.
❀Pegasus ponies can influence the the wind a bit to aid in flying but again it takes alot of work for them to really affect the weather.
❀Merponies are still a bit of a mystery - was that whirlpool in the ocean a natural occurrence or were the merponies up to something? ninja
❀Unicorns as mentioned have the most obvious magic of them all, they can control the elements and like to keep to themselves so are a curiosity to the rest of the ponies.
❀Send Nimrochiell a pm or quote her.She will gladly answer anything you have to ask.
