"Where brilliance is good and madness is better..."
Helovia opened in February 2012! We are an active fantasy equine RPG
Where once the world narrowed into naught but gray dust and desolation, the gods called for life. Wielding the elements of fire and light, dark and wind, earth and water, spark and time, they have created Helovia. The realm is set within the mythical globe of Loorien, a planet rich with all variety of creatures and blessed with all manner of magic. Originally populated by nomadic, tribal characters, they've since grown into massive empires saturated with culture and history. Separated into four distinct segments of Helovia, called "The Regions," each band of horse strong enough and capable enough, took up the power and responsibility of leadership. Unicorns, old, wise and mysterious, took to the north, hidden in forests of mists and shadows and rarely making themselves known beyond their cliffs of the World's Edge. Equines, vast, organized and militaristic, split into two, one group went north to the Windtossed Foothills and the other group went south to the Dragon's Throat. Pegasus remained nomadic, making their homes in various parts of The Wilds in a migratory manner. For many generations, the land was peaceful and calm, but peace was never the way of the gods. With a clash of argument, war and bloodshed massacred Helovia, and in the aftermath, the realm was eerily quiet. Now, as newcomers sweep into this land, they are met with the lingering bitterness of the gods and the struggle to reclaim what was lost. Nothing remains safe or certain while sorcerers and soldiers alike brood and bide their time for revenge, honor and glory.
Endless Night :: Broken Magic Plot ☼ - 8/30/13 - The earth god has returned and is walking across Helovia to heal the land. Every area can now be considered lush and prosperous, but the sun has still not risen.
☼ - 7/19/13 - The moon has risen in the sky, heralding the return of the Goddess of the moon. Lamp trees which light the paths have grown brighter, moon flowers which grow in dark places have begun to grow and prosper and the world is brighter, filled with a new hope.
Endless Night :: Dead Magic Plot ☼ - 6/22/13 - The gods of Helovia, in order to protect the world, have disappeared into the rift, leaving the world sunless, moonless and magic-less in their absence. Only the herdlands have a source of light, but lamp-trees with glowing leaves and branches sporadically line the popular roads and paths from place to place.
Doppleganger Plot ☼ - 6/20/13 - The God of Time is still struggling to close the rift though which the dopplegangers have come. He has requested that his brothers and sister assist in closing this hole, but without knowing why it opened, the task is proving difficult. Magic still remains faulty and hard to control, but the herdlands continue to be places of refuge for those who are fortunate enough to call these lands home.
TALLSUN is temperate this year, the warmth from Birdsong slowly increasing to a steady (but not unbearable) heat. The Dragon’s Throat is as hot as its desert climate implies; however the nights are unseasonably cold and offer a reprieve from the days’ scorching heat. The Aurora Basin is warm, but the cool nights allow some frost to linger on the ice-capped mountains, with flowers and shrubbery lasting throughout the season. The World’s Edge becomes humid with the mists and heat and experiences an intense heat wave midway through the season that threatens flora and fauna alike. However, aside from this hot spell, the cliffs are rather comfortable for the season.
Character of the Month for
TIAMAT, the newly crowed Lady of Aurora Basin, has been a Helovian favorite ever since the ocean-marked mare drifted in! Believing herself to be born of the sea and sky to avoid the truth of a tragic past, the Ocean’s Light approaches life with a lighthearted and playful nature that inspires others. Well-matched with her leviathan orca companion, the pair are a welcome and friendly sight to anyone in need. We are excited to see how Tiamat grows as she leads the Basin! Congratulations!
