Welcome to the Dream
Waking, lilting, and waking again...
Eshteth awaits. She opens her arms wide - one last time - to embrace the world's fallen. The outcast and downtrodden; the heroic and royal; the cunning and cruel; the dreaming or heartbroken. They all come to her eventually. But do any of them truly know why they've come? There's something in the air of the place that clouds the mind and alters the sight. For those who come to Eshteth, the world will never be the same.

July 12 2017 - "So many have heeded our neutral call, a binding hunger settling in their stomachs as they instinctively know what sanctity it is to set foot upon this good land. We are becoming deliriously pleased. Expect more impromptu visits, for we are ever, ever so curious."

April 3 2017 - What strange stirrings and winnowing fuss and effervesce as the beginnings of intelligent culture and society once again begin to thrive within the isolated confines of Eshteth. Several individuals have already heeded the isle's call, swimming with all their physical and mental will alone to reach it. Exhausted, but invigorated, the stories of many have already begun to flourish. Will you join them?

Feb 17 2017 - The land stirs with life and the trembling beginnings of new, fresh creation. More creatures than ever before have begun migrating to Eshteth, attracted to and coaxed by its ceaseless, subliminal power. Essence looks in in dead eyed satisfaction; they have spent far too long within isolation.

    Solaris Shores
    T'was but another fable   by Aesop, 12-24-2017, 03:39 AM
    A slender land bridge connects the Isle of Eshteth to the mainland, but with temperamental seas afoot the only certain entrance to the island is by swimming. Surrounding the small but diverse land mass are the Solaris Shores, whose sands are pale to pristine, and skies and oceanic swells pulse with a near ceaseless swirl of infinite color.

    The Untamed
    Izgilnurt   by Knurlnien, 01-16-2018, 11:31 AM
    Eshteth is not vast, but instead deliciously assorted in ecosystems to fit any mortal's particular taste. It is in these grounds that a treaty perpetuates, a land free of ruler, where those who whichever background and bloodline may either dine together in secrecy and the spirit of companionship. Or commence a battle to the death without tribal interference.

    Corridor of Cells   by Cif'thar, 09-15-2017, 09:09 PM
    The epitome of a rising civilization, wherein the Equus have spawned their brain children, their primitive way of life yielding to the creation of structure, of ability, of tactics and raw, conniving opulence. Through crystalline eyes this land is but the gem of gods, though with sapience came their budding yet ever present curse of greed.

    A savage, vivacious emerald expanse dappled in mature oaks and jutting, naked stone. Spider webbing creeks merge into shallow rivers along steppes of sweet-grass fields. Abundant with natural structures and ecological diversity, tribes of the cunning Lupus thrive. Beasts of lineage, they mask brilliance with bloodlust and coax respect borne of fear.

    The Threshold
    in the presence of glory....   by Essence, 06-20-2017, 07:23 PM
    To tread these grounds assigns ambitious intent, for this strange labyrinthine path forged of phantasmal wonder and unsettling mystery is the tremulous, and required route in attaining any chance to speak face to face with the great astral deity and all it's inconceivable glory. What horrors await, what painful wisdom; Essence thrives to ensnare, and relishes enchantment.

    Forest of Nalacera
    Monolithic   by Knurlnien, 01-16-2018, 12:24 PM
    The mouth, and gorging womb of Eshteth, Nalacera was once a sacred and public ground upon which all individuals on the island gathered to give praise, worship, and prayer unto Essence. A place of congregation, it is said that every Solstice of Pyre a great, flamboyant energy is released from this particular region and ceremonially flows into all creatures receptive to its power.
