sierra grove
someday ill write lore for everyone i swear
ignore my projects tab pls

sierra grove lies on a distant island in the sea, between the viridian labyrinth and dragonhome. perhaps because of the separation – or perhaps because of the inhabitants – it would be easy to mistake the place for anything but the nature flight. the island – and the grove – take up near 100 square miles in the sea, and the vast majority of it has more of a resemblance to a desert than a forest. most of it is red sand and rock and thick stretches of juniper, acacia, and joshua trees, studded with scrub brush, with white sand beaches and sheer cliffs; further inland, into the rougher hills, if you get high enough up it’s replaced – instead, filled with lush green grass, aspen and pine trees surrounding tiny lakes and valleys, sown by the cultivator.

the grove did not lay empty before the remnants of cetus wandered in, it was an established clan combining dragons and beastclan; after, it remains just the same.

ivy, the high councilor of the grove and the defacto leader of its clan, was the first to arrive, years ago. he brought with him his old, tiny clan from the border of plague and earth, malpais; an escape from the building serthis clans and the growing violence of the border region. he was reluctant to leave his home, but the most important thing was to keep his clan safe. a scout brought back word of the sierra grove, and that was where they fled.

before them, the island’s sole inhabitants were its animals and the dragons almost like spirits hiding beneath the sand and in the trees; no harpy had yet settled on the cliffs, and if there were maren in the water or other beastclan in the mountains he saw none. and for a long time it continued to be only them, with no dragon flying past to stumble upon them. in the end, the first to arrive were what he had expected; the harpies, nesting on the cliffs, a refuge from the dragons on the mainland.

it was the first real encounter they had had with the beastclans; skirmishes here and there, but never an actual force. the argument over what to do, exactly, came to a conclusion on a peaceful solution. it was still a rocky road, at first; there were dissenters among ivy’s clan, and the harpies themselves had endured plenty among dragonkind. but eventually both groups came to, at least, a tolerance of the other, trading items with each other and growing friendships.

as dragons passed by, the clan began, steadily, to grow. for a long time sierra grove existed in relative peace, between dragons and harpies and, as time went on, maren, until the remnants of cetus stumbled into the grove. it was a plague clan, split apart and destroyed in wars with other clans, dragon and beast alike. but there were only a handful of dragons that remained, and ivy welcomed them in.

ever since, sierra grove has simply…. existed. the dragons and beastclan of the island do not wish for conflict with others; they are content to grow and farm and fish, providing a refuge for dragons and beastclan who share their ideals and a united front against any who would seek to harm them.
