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!

Appearance
At a distance, the first sight of this massive creature could be imagined as a monster. Face covered by the skull of a dragon, the bottom jaw draped low past his chin in a show of threat and protection. Under the skull is his own bone, though not actual bone material. His entire bone structure is that of obsidian., showing under the dragon skull as deep purple and black. Shining as opal. His eyes gleam from beneath the skull, both a glowing bright blue. The contrast between the colour of his eyes and the jewelry around the skull makes his appearance all the more menacing, in a whimsical sort of way.

The skull and bone armor is the same colouring, all a deep tan. Due to the bone being from the dragon, killed by himself during his coming of age, has long, jagged spikes along the spine. The skull itself is a large and menacing structure. Long antler like horns, curling behind his head. Equipped with cuffs of gold, imbedded Precious gems as a display of rank. Showing he had been chieftain of a large tribe. What looks like a crown of feathers, are actually carved iron shards. Used in fighting as a sort of defense mechanism. The armor covers his top line, under line, and the front of all four limbs.

His pelt is a deep grey-black. Not a marking in sight. Under his armor lie many scars from his childhood, and chieftain life. Though once his armor was set onto his form, not a soul broke through to the flesh. Due to this, no scars are visible. His mane, tail, and feathering along the legs are a light flaxen cream colour. Contrasting well with the deep grey of his pelt.

Maslumis is equipped with a set of teeth resembling that of a dragons. Supported by the skull, this is equivalent to two rows of top teeth. The inside in which acts as a crocodile, bacteria coating the inside of his maw. Once bitten, an infection spreads wildly throughout the bite to find way to the bloodstream, and into the heart. A fatal bite if not treated within hours. Due to this, Malsumis is carnivorous, unable to consume any fauna other then herbs, les he become ill.

His size, coming from his father and mother, looks to be that of a friesian. Though if anything he resembles the Gypsy Vanner breed. While most may have a long, flowing mane and tail, his is trimmed and shortened. A long mane or tail can be used against him in battle, because of this, a short mane and tail work more in his own favor. His body structure, with the obsidian bone, is very stocky. Muscular. While he does indeed move quickly, as he must in order to make a successful hunt, he is built more for battle.

Apart from this, Malsumis has the mind of a genius. Countless times, in the moment of battle, he has used his environment. With his hooves, large and rock like, he easily kicks up rock and dirt. From time to time, sparking fires from flint. He reads his opponent quickly, as time often would not allow a slow observation when in a fight. Easily picking out weak points, and places in which he could strike that stallion or mare down with ease.

Due to his vocal structure, Malsumis creature rather predatory sounds, resembling wolves, Dragons, Cougar. To make the equine sounds seems to strain his throat, as such he cannot do much more then to nicker.

Personality
Malsumis may at first seem cruel and merciless, but once he has opened himself to someone, he becomes loyal and kind. Born to be a leader, he is naturally able to take the lead in a tough situation, and act as "the voice of Reason." When a situation comes out of hand, he will use his authority and presence to put them back in their place.

The Beast of a stallion will naturally drift towards power, not in a bad way, more in a way that will announce him as alpha male. He was raised to be the chief, and as so he grew up in the lead. When his father lost his sanity he fought and won. He became chieftain at a young age. This raised his protective instincts. More loyal to his herd then to himself. He would give his life to do what was best for them.

This Stallion was once a sucker for love. Having fallen for a mare at a young age. When his mate became to bare a foal, the herd was attacked by the drake species near the tribe lands. His mate died in the chaos. This left him to believe that the likes of love was not meant for him. That the Gods had punished him for straying from his path of destiny.

Even with everything that has happened to him within his past, he is still kind. And merciful. Never will Malsumis give a killing blow. He believes that chances are to be given to all, even to those who are undeserving.

History
At birth Malsumis was a leader. Taught to take charge. He was never given a chance to be a common foal as such would be a disgrace.

When he turned to a yearling, his mother was killed by the drake of the mountain. He vowed to avenge her death, and once his right of passage came, he succeeded. He killed the beast and returned with it draped over his back. In reward he wore its bones.

Malsumis grew into an impressive stallion as the years passed. And his father slowly grew more insane. The stallion was sending their herd into chaos. As a last resort he was forced to challenge and kill his father. Taking his place as chief at the age of only two.

Malsumis brought the herd many victories. Being the best the tribe had for many years. Though when he fell for a mare going by the name of Elis, things fell apart. She grew to become pregnant with his foal. The heir to the tribe. This was not meant to be. On the night of her labor, the tribe was struck by drake. Killing his mate, unborn child, and the rest of his tribe. Striking him with dishonor. For years on he believed he had done something against the Gods. Rendering him cursed. Though he slowly realised that such was only trial, and he was destined to rise as alpha once again.
