Hi there! Name's After. I like having far too many dragons, making overly complex lore, and lurking in the Help Center. Feel free to ping or PM me! ^^

Lore is being overhauled and many bios are out of date - pardon the dust!

RP friendly clan!

* I am sometimes terrible about responding to messages, so feel free to poke me if I haven't responded to something for a while!
-
* I will always look at offers on any of my dragons, but keep in mind that if they are not actively listed for sale, they will not be cheap!

Time.

The river of time doesn't flow in Byzmara.

Those dragged here from other worlds and times at first rejoice. The specter of a gold-brown city looms on the skyline, beckoning in its beauty.

The sapphire skies have no clouds, and pure white sunlight pours down on an endless ocean of wind-whipped dunes.

But as a dragon instinctively crawls toward Byzmara, things begin to go wrong.

First it's the taste in the air. Something flat, stale, and unknowable, some great empty gap in sensation that can’t be explained. Then it's the city's chill, purple-black shadow. It carries an ancient, inexplicable foreboding with it – even if it looks freshly built.

And if a dragon is caught outside the large, sand-brick walls at night, things go worse.

The vast, inter-dimensional beasts stutter and flicker from place to place before consigning living beings to a dark fate outside of time.

But if a dragon makes it to the city walls, often carried on Hitsugaya's shoulders, the world gets better.

If one ignores the eagle-eyed sentries posted around the city's pitched and beveled walls, Byzmara is almost... welcoming.

A central street lined with palm trees also boasts open-air trade. There, shopkeepers sell wares from all over Sornieth and beyond. Sluices of sparkling water run parallel down the roads, which bustle with dragons and other beings (whose origins are unsure). The market is redolent with the scent of spices, meat, and wine. There is much talk and laughter, even if voices fade off into uncertainty, and dragons sometimes seem to disappear.

The proud Sultan Helios has a well-kept palace in the center of the city, but it is unclear if he serves any function beside ceremonial. Still, it eases the dragons' minds that there is some semblance of government. Even a sense of peace, if one can count the hundreds of bodyguards as peace's armaments.

The boarding houses are well-kept, adorned in exotic silks and paintings of incredible scenes.

All is well... until the sun begins to set.

The vast double doors that serve as Byzmara's only physical entrance close "at first shadow." After that, wind begins to howl. Fistfuls of sand — blackened by the night — are hurled into the air.

Then, the other trades emerge: dragons and half-dragons creep out of the cracks of the city. In the moonless night and beneath cover of the sandy sky, wares of all type and import change hands.

Precious stones, absinthe, nubile women and men, eggs, hatchlings, and more are bought and sold.

Byzmara doesn't care about life, and neither does the desert, so why should they? Time does not flow here; neither do morals. And a traveler who is especially handsome may find themselves sold to one of the caplin — a leader of a local gang.

No one can be sure how long the days and nights last. There are nights that last an eternity and days that whip by, like the sand, in ten minutes. No one is sure here, least of all who the next traveler to appear will be.
