Has updated his little stash of items.

Recent - 23/07 2020
Has been enjoying having Harin in the forest, actually. He's a fun guy, and perhaps more inclined to just walk up to people than Leto is - and so, Leto has managed to meet quite a few more people lately. Pleased with that.

Today, went into the forest as usual, before noticing a group of familiar scents in the Birch - Ross, Harin, Yasu, and another, vaguely familiar sphinx (Eremes). Curious, went to investigate. Was met by Harin, who seemed relieved to see him - the cause evident a moment later. Eremes was heavily hurt, Yasu holding it together (but barely), and nobody quite seeming to know what to do.

Harin went to fetch a big cat friend of Yasu, who Leto didn't catch the name of (Favager).

Ross volunteered some medical knowledge, Leto went to fetch water and some stuff for the pain. Returned with the water, and kassi, a leafy herb to chew, causing pain relief (and very slight euphoria), as well as a small brass key on a leather cord, which causes physical and mental numbness. Yasu went to punch some trees to get splints. Wow.

Helped Ross with splinting Eremes' leg, got some more water, then helped with Favager's leg as well.

At one point when he went to get water, Harin asked about travelling to other worlds. Replied with some uncertainty, made a mental note to make sure Harin can go back home from elsewhere as well.

Later, went home to crash in his own bed. Many things to think about!

Has been keeping busy, mostly outside the Forest; has some plans, but needs funds for that... aiming to buy a small house in the south of Emnes, just a little getaway, that'd also help him expand his business there.

Also got a surprise NIECE. Saddened by Indira's passing, but determined to keep an eye on Inaria. Already a bit taken aback by her boldness.

A few days ago, learned of a newbie event at the Kantei fight ring; was invited by his friend Harin to come join. Thought it sounded fun - didn't realize that Ross, who'd been doing some end-of-day cleaning in the shop, had been eavesdropping on their conversation.

Kind of got a hint that Ross had heard something, but couldn't be sure how much; Leto would rather not have him know about the organized fights... 'cus it's Ross we're talking about :unamused:

Instead pretended he and Harin were only going to go have dinner somewhere, which Ross invited himself to...

Long story short, ended up being unknowingly followed by Ross to the old parking garage where the fights were held. Had a pretty good evening, watched some spectacular fights, got a few surprises, and then saw a familiar figure step inside the ring - against one of the experienced veterans there, no less - and had a bit of a heart attack. Damnit Ross!

Figured they had to do something, and Harin had the idea that they could turn off the lights to distract from the fight, and give Ross an opportunity to flee. In doing so, surprised Ross, who made some real weird magic, paralyzing a bunch of people before disappearing into the tunnel system.

Leto and Harin managed to go after him, after some trouble, but were pursued by angry djarva people - and thats how Leto managed to yeet them all into the Forest. Wresteld with an angry dog-Harin, and THEN, just their luck, there was a mini Abio, and it was weird. Welcome to the Forest, Harin!

Later, talked things through with the albino, and Ross, got a few things untangled, and also spoke to Verve about what had happened. Whew. Now, would rather like a few days of No Weird Shit happening.

Heard whispers about a strange tear in the air near the Ruins; knew others had gone there, and come back, often with interesting items or tales. Definitely intrigued by it, but a little wary; once he left through a portal much like that one, and it took years for him to find his way back.

Still, awfully curious. And he knows how to go between worlds now, so when he met up with Verve a while later, asked her if she wanted to come with him. Irresponsible sibling adventures!!

Verve was, obviously, very up for it, and they carefully made their way through the portal, only to find... nothing? on the the other side. The forest looked the same. Same hill, same old forest. Except for one thing... a strange mound of stones, and on top, two statues. Exact stone replicas of both Leto and Verve, except older-looking, as if the unknown sculptor had seen into their futures.

Was thoroughly unnerved by this, but also incredibly curious. Investigated the place carefully, finding two items - a brass key and some hairpins.

Verve wanted to take the statue of herself and bring it home, but it proved too heavy for them to move. Leto might have pulled a muscle. Frowned at Verve's suggestion that he should take the statue of him and put it in his bathroom. No Thanks I don't need to look at a Likely Cursed statue of myself while I'm on the toilet??

Eventually made their way back to the Forest.

"Hm, yeah. Well, at least you'll avoid a possibly cursed statue of yourself in the living room?"

01/01 2020
Visited the forest again after some time away. In a strange mood: restless, uncertain, craving company yet wanting to be alone. Wrestling with some decisions but coming to no conclusions.

Trotted around the forest before joining Verve and Thais, and two strangers (Nix, and a mossy fawn?). Greeted them, roughhousing a little with Verve. Mixed feeling about it - vaguely annoyed, and then annoyed at himself for feeling like that, and just overall moody.

Eventually sat down, but got up sometime later, restless still. Wandered for a bit before sitting down alone, feeling shitty. Eventually got up to drag himself to the pond, where a dunking in cold water cleared his head. Stayed in the pond until he felt stiff with cold, teeth clattering, but with a much clearer head he went to join Thais and Verve again. Glued himself, still dripping wet, to Verve (much to her chagrin).

Later, sat with Idris for a while. No longer finds her unsettling, but rather interesting. Or maybe both. Very stylish, at least.

Just doing some bio housekeeping. updated pinterest link and some misc bits

Has been keeping busy in Emnes, mostly. Went on a small trip to the south, picking up some new stock for his shop. Possibly taking on some slightly more under-the-table jobs in the future...

Sat with Red a week ago or so. Got a promise from Red to be invited into his house sometime, pleased.

28/09 2019
Updated a few things: inventory, personality, interaction

Met Sadhbh - a vaguely familiar face he'd seen before but never got a name to. Exchanged names, some small-talk about fog. Player had to go cut lemons. Was joined by two others for a while (Ashe and Abilene).

28/09 2019
Wandered around in the fog, a bit annoyed by how thick it was - kept going in circles. Was bumped into by a small sorry-looking buck who Leto thought looked familiar, and who apologised profusely. Learned that his name was Zero, gave his own name in return, and they had indeed met before.

Was asked for help, and yeah, the guy sure looked like he could use some help - thought not what he expected to hear (painkillers, Leto got 'em). Learned that Zero was in some healer's debt, and had to pay in blood, teeth, or jewelry. Yikes.

Agreed to help out, but Zero was gonna owe him a favour. Showed him a few items, and the buck picked out a small silver locket he thought would fit. Also gave him some leaves to chew for the pain before parting ways; quite pleased with the idea of being owed a favour.

"They'll stain your mouth blue, though. Just so you know."

15/09 2019
Was by the pond when he noticed Miriam's presence in the the Birch. Had seen her a few times after his return, but figured she wouldn't remember him; it had been a long time, after all, and they never knew each other particularly well. But even so, he doesn't exactly have an abundance of people he knows anymore, so took a chance and went to greet her.

Pleased when she seemed to remember. Did not mind her terse greeting and was content to sit in silence.

Again, Herla's fawns are

Again, Herla's fawns are simply beautiful. I sorta like this one's design more than his brother's, to be honest. Love that little spot behind his ear, and the colours of his face.
Hi it's me.

Araignée blinked as she

Araignée blinked as she caught a glimpse of the fawn. She approached with her mother's permission, "Hi there, you are quite a pretty little deer...", the spiderling flashed a smile here, "Do you have a name? Mine is Araignée!"

how cute ^ ^ I want the same

Thank you everyone for your

Thank you everyone for your nice comments :]

The tiny fawn blinked and took a hesitant step towards the spiderling. He sniffed for a moment, then he slunk away between his mother's legs. "Pfffblbleb!"

I'm honestly not sure Herla and Gehirn would let Araignée near :') And he's still too small for proper interactions, I think, he can't even speak yet. But thanks for trying!

XD well Araignée wouldn't

XD well Araignée wouldn't know any better, I figure she'd be a persistent little bugger in meeting other deer who aren't towering over her. Herla and Gehirn might have to 'shoo' her off from time to time

Herla felt her tiny fawn

Herla felt her tiny fawn bumping between her legs, glancing to him and then to the thing that had sent him there, a creature with many long spider legs protruding from its body. Herla did not allow unknown fawns near her newborns and she most certainly did not allow the offspring of predators near them. A predator who was known to eat fawns. She immediately snorted and stomped at the creature, shaking her feathers in clear displeasure. She’d heard it speak so she spoke back to it, “Back whence you came, creature. BACK. “ in case her body language was not clear enough.

Araignée shivered a bit,

Araignée shivered a bit, backing up, "I didn't mean to...I thought...", she stammered in fear, unsure what she had done wrong to upset the mother doe.

At this time, Nekumbra approached, "Araignée! Come here, now!". The little one with her spider legs sprinted away and to her mother's side, shivering and peeking out from the safety of her own mother. Nekumbra then noticed Herla's new fawns, "So the rumors are true, she did birth twins. Hmm...", the spider doe sighed before taking a few steps toward Herla, "My apologies, dearie. My little one doesn't know the meaning of 'personal space'. I will make certain she does not bother you...or yours...again.", the doe bowed before turning and motioning for the spiderling to follow.

In the distance, Herla would catch Nekumbra scolding her fawn, "What were you thinking, child? You could have been killed! We do not associate with the likes of them..."
