RP Public: The Green Glade - Stable
At the heart of the Reforged Realm sits a twisted oak arch. This still living tree has had the base of its trunk transformed into a gateway between worlds. Through here the gods of this new realm may come and go. A burbling stream runs along one edge of the clearing, some mossy rocks near the hillside make for surprisingly comfortable seats and a number of berry bushes grow thickly along one edge of the clearing. Aside from the gateway there is nothing supernatural about this glade, but it possesses a certain peace and calm.

Here the gods find they can leave a shard of themselves as they travel. This piece lingers even as the rest of them is elsewhere.

Realm Characteristics
Part of a Whole - The Green Glade is as stable as the rest of the Reforged Realm
Spatial Disturbance - The gods can be both here and elsewhere at the same time
Muted Powers - While in the Glade the gods are muted, their powers dulled.

Nox took a look around at what they had wrought, and sighed with relief that it was all over. He felt a combination of curiosity for what had happened, and a mild annoyance at what was the divine equivalent of forcefully being bred and made to give birth. He had mixed feelings about the Deep Forest and the new mortals within it as well. He had mixed feelings about most things these days.

He decided to test the boundaries as he was often wont to do, as his perceptive gaze noticed the gate at the base of the twisted living arch. And he decided to send himself through the gateway to see what was on the other side. Would it be the cosmic wastes, or somewhere else? It was intriguing as he could also leave some of his presence there in the glade as well.

Nox leaves through the gateway, while also leaving a "self" there in the glade.

Abethur appeared in the Glade and was disappointed to see the lush, overgrown forests. They were beautiful in their own way but his own wishes had been superseded by the will of the collective. Now the Anaxi would have to live on the surface among unknown predators. This fact displeased him greatly but he did his best to not let it show.

There was nothing to be done but to make the best of the situation as it stood. Looking about the area around him he pressed on to the hillside, staking out a claim of territory for his people to begin establishing themselves. The mossy rocks were a poor replacement for caves but the comparatively clearer lines of sight might just keep his curious mortals alive.

Crash! Rustle, rustle... thunk.

As the realm remade asserted its laws, Atris rapidly became intimately familiar with one which this space previously lacked: gravity. She fell from the heavens and landed in the brush nearly, her frantic flailings and attempts to disentangle herself flinging little red berries in every which direction. Eventually she is spat out from the foilage, disheveled clothes somehow even worse for wear than before. With solid terra firma beneath her now the doll is content to lie there and recover her proverbial breath while staring at the newborn sky.

Sensing the movements of the other gods nearby, the doll-goddess mustered up just enough strength to offer them a small wave. Her arm fell limply to her side after.

Those near her felt a twinge of confused, exhausted, mildly curious that did not feel a part of their own thoughts. The sensation was not unknown to Seris, but for the other gods it likely took a moment to realize it was the doll's idiosyncratic way of communicating. Want to believe others here are gods. Want to know if we are safe.

Seris was a graceful sort in a land almost not too far off from ones she has hunted in before. There was a breath of excitement and relief that escaped her lips.

Looking around, Seris caught her bearings. Hopefully this place was big enough for score of them. She didn't realize it before, but she is sharing a realm with other gods and their mortals. It would seem she would need to be more diplomatic than she had hoped originally.

Bringing a claw to her teeth, Seris picked at her fangs lightly as if out of habit. She took the same direction Nox did. Towards the gate. Especially if she could leave a shard of herself behind here. It would be interesting to see what was laid about the other side of the realm.

With the instance left behind, Seris turned around and eyed each of the other gods lazily as she continued to pick at her teeth. Her tail waved slowly right to left to right to left. It curled it's tip inwards at each wag.

Once Seris's eyes fell onto Atris, Seris stopped picking her teeth and spoke. "Good to see thou made it out alive... Safe? Mineself doubts that. Though in numbers one should be, yes?

Looking back to the rest, Seris's eyes had an intense slitted look, almost like that of a dragon or cat. The glowing silver irises stood out against her hollow black scleras. "Greetings, fellow...divines. Thou may call me Seris. The little one there is Atris, yes?"

Seris would have to make nice, as well she would need to find a home here for her people. She knew not the foes that resided here, so she knew not what to make of their residencey. It was such a drag having to think of others. Though, she imagined them to be a great boon if dealt with correctly.

Neru looks around, and finds the new world pleasing to his eyes. This is gonna be fun. After Seris introduced herself and Atris, he can't contain his enthusiasm. A living doll, and a wolf in disguise.

"Oh Granny, what big teeth you've got!"

Seeing as Seris and Nox seemed to exit and remain at the same time, Neru followed their example and followed them out, while staying in the realm aswell.

The version of Nox that remained behind turned to address the other gods. Including the newcomers.

"Well it seems this rather lovely living archway leads back to the chapel. Which is good because I was afraid that our act of spontaneous theogenesis leveled the poor place. And I kinda like the chapel, both in its tone and overall theme." he said.

He regarded the newcomers.

"Greetings new gods. I am Nox, and yes this seems to be a safe space. Safe enough, anyway. No giant black snakes angler things trying to eat us or anything anyway. Or sewer gators for that matter." he said flippantly.

Atris lay and listen. The invisible metaphysical string tying xir back where xe had came was taut, threatening to pull xir back given the first opportunity. Xe was not sure what would happen if xe tried to follow other gods back. Xe was not sure why xe would want to, when xir people were here floundering in their first moments of existence. Atris, for one, would see to xir created before going off galavanting through the fractured realms.

Hearing xir name, Atris sat up and looked at the cat goddess... or at least, xe thought it was the cat goddess. A vast change had come over her; she no longer looked enfeebled and comical in her grandeur. She looked like a goddess. Ashamed to admit we were wrong. Seris' reckless risk-taking has clearly been rewarding.

Atris startles to her feet. "You're Nox?" xe asks excitedly in xir androgynous voice. "It is rare I meet someone even older than I am. I- I am humbled by your presence, great primordial..." Xe curtsies in xir tattered dress. Then, uncertainly, looks him up and down again. Truly these were sorry days when the darkness itself is reduced to such a state. She curtsies again, almost apologetic.

Curiously, Atris takes a few steps towards the child-god, each pair of steps accentuated with a quiet plink plonk. Xe regards him for a long moment and a cock of the head... and then her plastic smile almost imperceptibly widens. "Hi Neru!"

Seris grinned and opened her maw at Neru, "All the better to eat thee with." Clamping down her maw she then waved her hand dismissively, "Thou should be careful whom thee calls granny, child. If I was not in high spirit. Thou'd receive a closer inspection of them."

When Atris spoke of and to Nox, Seris realized just how different they all were. She knew no Nox as a primordial. Come to think of it, she was unfamiliar with any of these divines. Whether for good or bad, it seemed at least two were of the same place in a sorts and she was not.

Crossing her arms Seris spoke, "Lovely it was, meeting ye all. I shall be off and about. Walking into the woods Seris went out after her people.

Nox turned and looked at Atris. He walked over and gently picked her up, setting her atop a 4-foot tall boulder in the clearing. It was a well-meaning gesture meant to help place her visually more at their level.

"There you go, little one. A fitting pedestal for such a beautiful doll. A goddess-doll at that. And it seems you haven't forgotten the old ways of respect for your elders. And even gods have their elders. This is much appreciated, and acknowledged." he said courteously.

But right now, I'm not much greater than any of you are. So you can just call me Nox. You may also know me as Nyx, my female aspect, but I haven't been able to be anything but male since falling to the Cataclysm. So Nox will do." he added.

"Seris...wait! You might lose your presence in the chapel if you go now!" he shouted after her.

Atris radiates pure bliss when xe is forcefully re-positioned atop a nearby rock. Xe sits xirself comfortably, the oddly boxy boulder seemingly positioned intentionally for sitting with its boxy corners and prominent position. Since xe had a say in the creation of this realm, its convenience was perhaps not so extraordinary. Once comfortable the doll's legs kick and sway idly, little shoes and littler feet bouncing arrhythmically. "I am Atris," xe counter-introduces xirself. "I am neither male nor female!"

Watching the other gods from xir new vantage point, a nagging sense of familiarity crawls over her. Then, xe remembers. Despite being ancient, nearly a primordial in xir own right, Atris had quickly found xirself quite unwelcome in the courts of gods; no one likes regrets, and the nature of xir domain meant xe too often fell into possession of secrets others wished wiped from memory. As a consequence Atris had hidden xirself away, not partaking in this particular ability of the divines in some time.

But the old world had fallen away, and with it Atris was free to wander once more. It took a moment to remember how to instance xirself, and once realized xe sent xir instance not out of this realm they had created together but further into it. Xe wanted to see xir patchwork Patch People people; and because xe had not been so hasty to leave, xe could! Silly reckless Seris~!

Silly reckless Seris that could easily kill them all.

The assembled gods watched as Seris strode out to the edges of the Glade and as she reached the boundaries she simply dissolved away into smoke.

OOC: Seris has left the Green Glade, she'll have to return with her main form in order to establish a new connection to the Green Glade. Her post in the Hidarugami thread is postponed until she is able to physically return.

Abethur set up on his rock and looked out the other gods mingling with each other, exchanging names. With the tone of their conversation he rationalized that they were neither evil witches nor fae. That was good, he thought. At least that meant that they were not enemies. At least not in the moment. Still he found himself tiring of introductions and interactions. He was unused to being about so many people for so long.

At the height of his power only the highest Archpriests could beseech him directly and they were strictly forbidden in doing so unless under the most dire of circumstances. He faintly remembered their pleas's as the Catcalysm consumed the Realm but he was powerless to save them.

Powerless. The word hung in his mind as he clenched his fist open and then shut. Would he fail the Anaxi as he had his previous race. Would they too be lost to the void? He decided that perhaps a distraction was better than his downward spiraling thoughts.

"I am Abethur. Well meet. Please do not become a witch or fae."

"Well there she goes. POOF up in smoke. No one ever listens." he said with a soft sigh and a roll of his eyes. Well, she learned now.

"Don't worry her other self is ok it's with us outside in the chapel. We're off to explore the deeper sanctuary in back and it turns out there's a shifting spatial labyrinth hidden back there and we're heading inside now. Anyone who wants to come better come now as we're gonna be gone for a while. Our presences in the glade excluded mind you."
