To our Look to the Stars family, whether you’ve been here since the beginning or joined only recently,

It is with heavy hearts that the Staff are announcing the closure of our beloved site. It will remain open for the entirety of August for you to collect your character profiles together and maybe hang around the site for the last time, but after that, LTTS will be closing. The closure comes for no reason other than the site reaching almost a ‘natural end’ in its life – all good things must come to an end, after all!

To celebrate the life of our wonderful site (or at least this is the case in our opinion!), we’d like to share with you a little bit of history because we’re proud of what our site was and what it came to stand for! Way back in 2015, which honestly feels like forever ago for those of us who’ve been around that long, a wonderful woman we all know as Maggie opened LTTS’ doors for the first time. Here is a short quote from the very first OTMs, of which our site leader won. We feel it sums her up incredibly well: “Maggie is the fearless leader of LTTS (or so the members call her!). She designed and created LTTS to be a safe, fun space for folks wanting to roleplay fantasy horses without the confinement of a lot of rules. So far, we think she's succeeded! She is a very easy and open person to talk to.”

As mentioned above, before all else, LTTS was designed to be simple. This was a safe space for anyone who wanted to write their pixel equines. With its relaxed and happy atmosphere, the member base that followed the opening of the site simply proves what, at the time, a innovative site it was, proving that the most unassuming, modest roleplays have the power to build strong communities, something that LTTS has always prided itself on.

Since 2015, it has been one heck of a rollercoaster! The site has been through so much – surviving the opening of other sites, the very sad stepping down of Maggie and one or two (okay, many!) redesigns to keep it fresh. We’ve seen some crazy writing and some beautifully touching threads. There are so many characters that will live forever in our minds as legends who carved Elysium’s future into the earth and stone it is created of. The current Staff team would firstly like to say a massive thank you to Maggie. Without you, there would be no LTTS, and many of us would have missed out on having a home in the RP world that is so welcoming. We’re sorry that your brain-child is closing, but we know you have some super exciting upcoming projects that we can’t wait to see; whatever you end up doing, we know you’ll be successful. Also to mention are the endless Staff members who have put so much time, effort and heart into LTTS. Here is an attempt to mention you all. Sorry if we missed anybody! Thanks to Maggie, Asyn, Blushie, Ana, Niki, Cecil, Scrimpyshrimp, Soupi, Revanant, Strixx, Briallu, Arabella, Mallory, Mercier, Mono, Boaz. Every one of you helped create this beautiful community, and you all should be so proud you were part of the LTTS journey. Finally, what would we be without our members. You range from young to old, shiny-new to veteran of the RP world and crazy to kind. One thing you all have in common is your ability to just get on. We’d like to say that we, as a site, have (probably!) had very little drama and we’re so thankful for you guys for making our job so easy. You’re all super sweet and respectful of each other. It’s lovely to see such collectivism online because it can often be missed in this internet age. Never have we met such a talented bunch of writers who also manage to juggle real life as well as roleplaying some incredible characters. A big, big thank you (and so many hugs) for your endless support.

As a final word, we’d like to say to our members – don’t stop roleplaying! We can name endless sites that are around right now (Caeleste, Rise of the Fallen, Fimbulvetr, Novus, just to name a few), plus there are many that are being created at this very minute. Go forth and continue your equine RP journey! The end of one thing opens so many doors into new and exciting possibilities.

There is currently no plan to bring around a LTTS 2.0. Perhaps in the future, the Staff will get together again and with Maggie’s permission, the world of Elysium will be reborn. (Remember that the idea was originally hers, so anyone looking to take inspiration from the site must speak to her first.)

But for now, we say goodbye, we love you all, and don’t forget to look to the stars!

Nocturné

Appearance


17.1hh | Vantablack Coat | Golden Cat Eyes
Ram's Horns | Lion's Paws and Tail


When the gods deigned to create the creature known as Nocturné (knock-turn-ay), they must have had a very twisted sense of humor indeed. She is the embodiment of the vast darkness between the stars, a beauty and a demon all wrapped into one.

When it comes to her frame, she is rather bulky and muscular for a female of the species (if she can truly be considered equine). Her build would be considered something of a light draft - her physique fitting somewhere in between the build of a Thoroughbred and a Friesian/Gypsy Vanner. Her body is covered in thick, heavily corded muscle that ripples beneath a coat that is so black it almost seems to swallow light. Her legs are long and solid, holding her up to just over 17 hands, and from the knee and hock down are covered in thick feathering. Her forelegs end not in hooves, but in large feline paws complete with razor-sharp claws. Her mane falls long and silken to her shoulder, with a heavy forelock that falls across her nose and often obscures one of her eyes. Her tail, though, is not a long flowing banner but a thick cord of muscle and bone extending from the base of her spine. It extends behind her for approximately six feet, and is tipped in a tuft of ebony hair.

Curling out from the back of her skull, just behind her ears, are two twisting black ram's horns. Her eyes are slitted like a cat's, black pupils ringed by golden irises. These help her to see in low light, and are reflective like any other feline's. When she smiles, you'll see the glint of sharpened canines, almost vampiric, and yes - she does eat meat. In fact, she rather enjoys it.

Personality
Chaotic/Neutral Evil | ESTJ | Realist | Anarchist
Sardonic | Ambitious | Charismatic | Cold | Calculating


Nocturné's alignment fluctuates somewhat depending upon her whims, but would typically be classified as a neutral evil. If she can get away with something, she will do it without remorse. She is out for herself, pure and simple. She sheds no tears for those she kills, whether for profit, sport, or convenience. She has no love of order, unless she is the one creating it, and holds no illusion that following laws, traditions, or codes would make her any better or more noble. She does, however, enjoy the sense of power she gets from being the one to create and enforce the laws. Underlings are, after all, great for keeping your own paws from getting dirty.

On the other hand, she doesn't really consider herself truly "evil" as she does not seek out the darker side of life purely for the fun of it. No, she would consider herself more of a chaotic neutral, a free spirit rejecting authority and promoting a campaign of anarchy. She is ambitious, but not typically reckless. If you work to earn her loyalty she may deign to return it... if it suits her.

History
She has existed in one form or another since time immemorial... In some realms where she has existed, she would likely be considered some form of god or demi-god, but that is not truly the case.

While she is no immortal, Nocturné never truly dies. Instead, dust to dust, her consciousness returns to the aether whenever her physical body fails her.

Before Elysium
In her last existence on the physical plane, she lived on island similar to this one inhabited by equines of all varieties as well as humans and wolves. This island was under constant turmoil, the different factions always warring for power over the others.

In this realm, Nocturné found herself roaming amongst the lands of the "dark" equines, though she never truly fit amongst them. While they were far more concerned with raping and pillaging the "light" lands, Nocturné had no interest in such base acts.

During her time on the island, Nocturné developed a loyal group of followers who she gathered together and developed into a "herd" that would provide their services to anyone who could pay the price - from performing assassinations to spying on other herds, Nocturné's syncophants would take on any job if the pay was right. She was rather enjoying her position as "High Priestess" of these misfits when a catastrophe hit the island and all those upon it perished...

For years after the cataclysm, she wandered as dust among the stars... nothing more than thought. It was not until whatever gods preside over her existence decided it was time to unleash her again that she felt the pull of magic bringing her back to the physical plane again... And when she awoke from her "slumber" she found herself here in Elysium.

Elysium
To be continued...

Magic Ability Description
Large Attack: Nocturné can summon a meteor shower of miniature stars, approximately grapefruit sized, which she can then direct at an opponent. The shower lasts for approximately 10-15 seconds. Small Attack: Nocturné can create a burst of stardust that blinds an opponent. The effect lasts approximately 5-8 seconds. Defense: Nocturné can, at will, shatter her body into its celestial form (black stardust) and reform it again a short distance away (no more than a few yards at a time).

Magic Weaknesses
Because the nature of her magic can be wild and unpredictable, her attacks require either an intense amount of concentration or a large amount of physical power (or some of both) in order to direct the attack. Otherwise, she risks harming herself in the process. Larger and longer attacks will weaken her accordingly. As such, she can typically only use one large attack OR two small attacks in a single battle.
