Rites of Spring – Nettle

teaser_nettle

To the north of the Hidden Temple, the terrain is rough and broken, full of sharp stones and stinging plants. This is Nettle’s home, and it reflects her wild spirit. No-one sees Nettle unless she wishes it, and she rarely cares for company. Visit her scrub, and if find your ankles burning, she has acknowledged you. Should that sensation stoke other fires, bring heat to your cheeks and quickening your pulse, you might be her type. The old saying advises one to “firmly grasp the nettle” …but it says nothing about what to do should she firmly grasp you.

Searching for Nettle? Look for Rites of Spring, the Autumn Harvest game, coming soon to Big World Network.

Rites of Spring – Lotus

From the western coast to the beginning of Nettle’s scrub lies a great placid swamp. This is Lotus’ glade, and its peace is as true as it is deceptive. Life teems below this still surface, and so it is with this dryad. The serene contemplation of her gaze is the product of powerful intellectual energies and profound embodied passions. It is said of Lotus that her tongue is both feather and razor, her words fever and remedy in one.

Chat with Lotus in Rites of Spring, the Autumn Harvest game, coming soon to Big World Network.

Rites of Spring – Oak

To the east of the Hidden Temple is an ancient forest whose oaken boughs seem impassible to to the casual traveler. This is Oak’s grove, a reflection of her strength, pride, and dignity. Oak takes tradition seriously, but this powerful dryad is no stick in the mud. When treated with due respect, she is cheerful and outgoing, and you’ll find yourself opening up to her in no time. Those who get to know Oak all agree: she makes quite an impression.

Oak will be found lending grace and athleticism to Rites of Spring, the Autumn Harvest game, coming soon to Big World Network.
