To the far west of Valoria lays a barren desert that stretches for miles over low laying flat terrain. It is the only easy route into Valoria as all other sides of the valley are surrounded by steep mountain slopes. The borderline of the valley is marked by a dry river bed, its ground cracked and broken with small slopes either side.
Embedded into the mountains to the north the Infernia Ridge is a large jutting rock that forms a small plateau. Several rocky paths lead up to from the sides to the top where a medium sized cave provides a good pride den. Below the ridge is a small stream and a few trees, enough water and shade the pride requires.
The green is a pleasant little copse of trees on the edge of a branch of the main river. The stream is not very deep, shallow enough to wade through but in such an arid land it has made a huge difference allowing these trees to grow and a small green meadow that belts around the edge of Dakori territory.
Located in the drier southern end of the valley the Saphira Oasis is a collection of small crystal clear pools of water in the sand at the very end of the river. Various rocks and trees are scattered sparsely around the territory and even the occasional small cave can be found in some of the rocks by the side of the pools.
Surrounded by the river and swamp the Askath Jungle is never short on water. Tropical trees grow tall covering the entire territory with a large green canopy all year round. Within the jungle there are several small clearings allowing light to reach the ground and plenty of small streams running through.
Rising high above the rest of the valley, the open woodlands of Casinira have become the chosen home to a pride of lions. Bisecting the standing of trees flows a creek that provides the essential nutrients to both flora and fauna. While the trees provide shelter, the occasional cave can also be found hidden amongst the roots and branches.
With the natural protection of both rocky outcroppings and the arid climate, the Scrublands are a place for only the hardiest to live. That includes the sparse and stunted trees and scrub grasses that take their nutrients from the small pond within the area. The rocky outcroppings provide ample shelter and cool caves to rest from the elements.
Created by an unknown impact, a crater has formed. But within the very heart of the devastation, a wild growth has grown. Providing the lions that call Rsorvic Crater, located in the foothills of the southern mountains, with ample shelter. Due to the formation of the crater itself any cresting the ridge may be seen as silhouettes against the sky-scape.
Hidden within the protective confines of the swamp a small band has made their home. Only those that are shown the way have knowledge of the treacherous pathways through the mires. A canopy of greens has opened to surround a patch of safe land that they've taken refuge in. A waterfall from the overlooking plateau provides fresh water.
To the far eastern reaches of Valoria is the falls of Zantera. Multiple small streams cut through the rocky pridelands creating small waterfalls and pools of fresh water everywhere. Patches of jungle are scattered between these rock and water divides giving the inhabitants of Zantera plenty of shade as well as several small caverns.
On one of the highest points of Valoria, the slopes of Novana Mountain is home to a pride that has found their home on its slope. Plush grasses carpet the slope, trees of towering greenery provide shade for the lions living on it. Caves peek out of the face, and the sound of a waterfall tumbling from some kind if inside source cover the area.
Practically right in the middle of the lands rests a large opening surrounded by tall and spaced out rocks. These rocks provide the perfect shelter for spectators to watch the matches that unfold within this arena. Fights for dominance or even just sparring can happen here, but one should never turn their back for the risk of dangers lurking.
Laying to the Eastern region of Valoria rests a beautiful waterfall. The waters are clear and when the light touches just right the reflection causes a myriad of shimmering specks. Legend has it that there are diamonds below the surface, but anyone would know it is far too dangerous to find out for sure. The waterfall leads West to the delightfully cold river.
Swamp 61 topics . 422 posts
Located behind Askath Jungle, being fed on the runoff from the waterfall and river, lies the Swamp. This wetland is made up of muck and spongy earth. One would have to watch their footing, the only land counted as truly stable are at the trunks of trees where the roots give support while the rest is made up of mostly mud that can trap the unwary.
A true spectacle the behold would be the caverns. Positioned to the North-East of Valoria, these caverns seem to be full of mystery. Younger lions enjoy romping about and exploring for hidden treasures. Shaded and cool, it is a popular place to take a snooze. While the caverns nearest to Valoria are typically safe, wandering too far in could certainly be tragic.
Just East of Dakori Green is the small area called the Boulder Towers. These oddly misshapen boulders seem to reach towards the sky, having small ledges that lead towards the top. None have ever reached the top of the towers, but it does make for a good test of endurance. Many come here just for something to do on their free time.
River 73 topics . 470 posts
The river is certainly gracious, for it spans through out the center of Valoria. The blue waters end at the Waterfall and are the prime suppliers of Saphira Oasis. Some may opt to lounge about, avoiding dangerous currents. Others use the river for drinking water. Whatever the reason, the river is one prime source of survival.
During the winter seasons, this area is treacherous and very cold. One could easily lose their grip and send themselves spiralling down a side of ice and snow. In the cooler seasons, the slopes are still a challenge to climb but less of a risk. These provide extra shelter to keep unwanted visitors out from Valoria.
Directly East of the Stone Circle is a wide open area otherwise known as the Savanna Plains. This is the main hunting grounds for the lions of Valoria, and probably the safest as well. It is a popular chill out spot for all of the lions due to the large watering hole in the centre of the plains.
