Long Roads Always End (Open)

A nation weaker than all but Maze, ruled by the Feline. The current system of government is Imperialist Monarchy, with an Emperor or Empress as Head of State. Its military is only ahead of Maze, as the Yamahanese Army and Navy. It geographically shares a large continent with the Territory of the Ravens. Similar to Earth's medieval Japan.

Long Roads Always End (Open)

Post by Scribe of Snow »

"Um... wait." Silas said, his voice dull with exhaustion. The small party stopped, all eyes on the short beaver at the back. He pulled out his map "Where are we?". An elderly cat started speaking in a low tone. "Yamaha Dynasty. We've made much of progress. We shall continue, no?" Silas looked on his map. Yep. The route the caravan was taking led them in this direction. But he was to tired to continue onward, as his legs were weak and shaky, and his eyes struggled to remain open. "No, wait, I need to rest. Can we stop, please?" A younger feline leaned out of line, snapping, "No! We have a schedule! We cannot stop!" The elder shushed him. "No, no. You may rest. But be wary. We must go before dawn." Silas nodded. The group went off to the side of the road, setting down their items. Silas quickly passed out quickly, his head rolling on his shoulders as he slumped over on a rock.


Silas awoke refreshed and happy. A good rest always helped his mood. But something was off. "Wh-what? Where did everyone go?" He was totally alone! The merchants must have left without him! He quickly gathered his things, a small bag and his spear, and began sprinting down the road. And so, thus was the scene until much later. He would never catch up to them. He sighed, and sat down a little off the road. Today would be a LONG day...

5 Hours Later

Silas took another look at his map, pondering the next move of his exodus. Signing on as a guard for the merchants caravan was a great choice as far as traveling went. All he had to do was look tough with his spear, and that often scared away would be highwaymen and robbers. If a real threat arrived, he could usually count on the more experienced guards to handle it while he hung back. And he got paid for it! It had served him well so far, at least. This last group was very concerned about their schedule. He couldn't remember where they were headed, but evidently, it was pretty important.

Doesn't matter now... he thought, putting his map into his bag. What matters now is finding a place to sleep. The roads are to dangerous. He surveyed the road ahead. It was long and overgrown, but it led somewhere. And so, with a huff, he set off.

Along the overgrown road is a small patch of trees that someone/something has clearly taken care of . The tallest one of these trees bares apples . Her paws slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwy stretch out and purple claws would poke through the thick leaves . In the middle of this patch is the opening to a cave with the sound of water deep within. Her ears twitch hearing the huff from afar in the normally quiet stretch of road.
