Permalink Emiryls Revealed! Event Extension!
We've finally come to the final Guardian! Better late than never, right?

http://origins-tree.com/photos/GR/Emiryls_Reveal.png

Second youngest of the Guardians, Emiryls is stern and to the point. She loathes wasting time and prefers good, hard work to laying about. She'll be the first to buckle down to a task and the last to call it quits. Her somber manner often makes her the brunt of Balvun's good-natured ribbing, which she always pays back with a scathing glare or icy rebuke. The lush, verdant rain forest will be your final destination in our initial storyline. With Emiryls at your back you'll unveil an ancient secret that threatens the peace and beauty of all the realms. Will your strength and the combined might of all the Guardians be enough to save the Tree of Origins?

I hope you guys are excited for our storyline, it's going to be so much fun! We've been doing a lot of plotting on not only this first chapter, but the chapters to follow as well and I'm confident you'll all be hooked! So what do you think of the Guardians? Who is your favorite? Which realm is your favorite so far?! What other realms might you like to see? Discuss in the comments!

A final announcement... Since I had some unexpected real life interruptions we've decided to extend the posting event to July 10th @11:59pm Origins Time. At that time we'll tally up all the posts and announce our winners! We'll be altering the reward tiers based on which users have the most posts rather than by a set post count, so don't worry if you haven't managed to reach any of the reward goals! Just do the best you can!

My apologies for the rather short announcement. We'll have more things to share very soon!!

Permalink Thasana Revealed! Starter Pets!
Alright ladies, give the poor boys some room to breath!

http://origins-tree.com/photos/GR/Thasana_Reveal.png

Thasana is the youngest of the Guardians. She's kind and playful, bubbling with laughter and always looking for the silver lining in even the worst situations. With her guidance and magic you'll explore the underwater realm, from coral villages to the dangerous depths where few dare to travel. Just as you become aware that there's something larger at work in all the conflicts you've been dealing with, you'll be summoned from the thriving ocean realm to the emerald rain forest watched over by the final Guardian, Emiryls...

Intrigued yet? Lockette and I have been hammering out the details to the story and I know you guys won't be disappointed when you get to see it unfold! Just as I'm sure you're all going to love these Starter Pets! Our artists have been hard at work getting ready for the Kickstarter. Ryou was able to finish these up yesterday and I couldn't wait to show them off! What do you guys think of them? Which is your favorite? Tell us in the comments!!

Permalink Rajuni Revealed! Kickstarter Pets!
Well, Balvun certainly got a warm (and handsy) welcome from all the ladies, I wonder if his somber brother will as well?
http://origins-tree.com/photos/GR/Rajuni_Reveal.png

Rajuni is the third eldest Guardian. He's tends to be quiet and reserved, rarely speaking and only then as succinctly as possible. Like the desert realm that he watches over, he's outwardly coarse and solemn, but a fierce passion boils beneath the surface, fueling his dedication and compassion. He may not say or express much, but you can tell he's alert and vigilant, taking in everything around him with little more than a glance. Rajuni will lead you across the rippling dunes, through sand storms and intense heat before sending you to meet Thasana in the wet, refreshing ocean realm...

In other news, I also want to show off our gorgeous Kickstarter Exclusive pets! These were sketched by dracula, lined by Sapphie and shaded by Ryou! In the coming days I will be releasing more details about Kickstarter, but for now I shall simply present the Crane and Nian!

That's it for this time around, be watching for more updates!!

Permalink Balvun Revealed! Posting Event!
I'm so happy that everyone seems to be enjoying the new Vineyard Items! And I hope you continue to enjoy what we've got planned! Starting with...

http://origins-tree.com/photos/GR/Balvun_Reveal.png

Balvun is the second eldest of the Legendary Guardians, but don't think for a second that it makes him one of the more mature! Just because he's rowdy, passionate and infuriatingly charming doesn't mean he isn't steadfast in his duty to protect his mountain realm. Like everything else, Balvun doesn't hold back or ease up. He's intense, but his heart is always in the right place. With Balvun's guidance you'll set out on the main story quest. Traipsing through the mountains may have you freezing your backside off, but once your path leads to the sweltering dunes of Rajuni's desert realm you'll almost miss having snow stuck in your boots!

For now though, I have a different quest for everyone! A quest that you can complete in the comfort of your own home, wrapped in a blanket or glued to the AC unit, depending on the weather in your world. So what's this "quest"? Well, it's a posting event! What's a posting event? It's where we reward users for posting and interacting on the forums.

Here's the rules and details!
