Introduction

In order to foster a more stable and safe environment for displaced refugees, the members of this band have come together. Their values of family, loyalty, protection, growth and tradition run deep. They currently focus on nurturing their young, protecting their vulnerable and rebuilding what was lost.

Members

Active

Lifeguard - Bloom Bríddn

Not of the disbanded New Caledonians, Bloom is seeking a new life after leaving behind her homelands overseas. She is a hard working, dedicated member of Camp Eclipse. She utilizes her skillsets best at this time as a Lifeguard; patrolling borders, helping others with tasks and chores around camp, and overall providing protection or a listening ear. She is a little rough around the edges and has many opinions but tries not to overdo it. She's loyal, friendly and steadily coming into her own spirituality through her patron goddess, Brig. She's ultimately just glad to have somewhere to belong again.

Groundskeeper - Gwenninûr Coara

Every camp needs someone to tend to the grounds, ensuring they are thriving just as much as the people. Though there is not much to the 'grounds' the camp holds, this devout druid of Nanin takes it upon herself to preserve the nature around the camp. Just as well, she tends to the growth of their herbs and plant resources.

GuideBeth Cormier

Daughter of O'Brien and a priestess of Nín, Beth most emulates her late mother in her exuberant and warm personality and her love of the water. She is often found along the riverbank, catching fish or creating floating shrines for her goddess, whose image she hopes to redeem. A quiet sorrow touches Beth, but she shines in spite of it to bring smiles to the others' faces.

Counsellor - Woodsmoke

Te mei audiam omittantur, eum ridens mandamus erroribus ei. Alienum tincidunt an cum, pri id choro bonorum legimus. Ut mel suas inani placerat.

Archivist - Warsaw Lykoi

Pick up a Luperci dictionary, look up "book-worm" and there would be a picture of the young Warsaw Lykoi. Having arrived to the Camp alongside Reed O'Brien, Warsaw was quick to dive into their new life by taking wholeheartedly to that which brings them joy; reading and writing. Having been taught the written word since they could hold the quill, and having a near eidetic memory, means this Camper fits into the Archivist role perfectly. Their main role is to help Liam keep tract of trading ledgers, and also writing down past and present history of Camp Eclipse.

Groundskeeper - Moth Kinland

NPCs

Medic - Arianna Nightwalker (cNPC to Bloom)

Companion to Bloom, Ari is also from overseas. She sticks close by to Bloom when not tending to her Medic duties, collecting herbs and plants for medicinal means or concocting poultices and tinctures to use for injuries that might arise. She is very soft spoken and kind but that doesn't mean she doesn't know how to take care of herself. She loves all kinds of living things and prefers to do no harm. She is finding that her role among the Eclipsians is a valued one and is settling in well.

Ranger - O'Brien (cNPC to Beth)

More withdrawn but no less dutiful than other Campers, O'Brien frequents the woods around their claim to scout for danger as well as provide food for the group -- and often wanders farther than that, sometimes returning with stolen trinkets. Though he has no connection to Caledonian traditions, he is driven to provide for the band and uphold its values (even if he fears he might bring them ill luck due to events in his past).

Provider - Smokewisp (cNPC to Woodsmoke)

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, cum nostrum assueverit repudiandae id, qui fastidii recusabo deseruisse ea. Accumsan expetenda duo no. Labore feugait intellegam ei his. Te mei audiam omittantur, eum ridens mandamus erroribus ei. Alienum tincidunt an cum, pri id choro bonorum legimus. Ut mel suas inani placerat.

Medic - Moraine Avarice (cNPC to Rialu)

Location

Umbral Cabin

Overview
The newly dubbed Umbral Cabin serves as Camp Eclipse's headquarters. Having faced some damage in the past, it was quite the fixer-upper in the beginning of the band's formation. After some hard work from the Campers, the building is practically good as new. While many of the Campers have made this their residence, others find homes in nearby dens, tents or previously abandoned structures. The homey and comfortable interior is currently sectioned off into Campers' sleeping quarters, a kitchen and a storage area. Nearby are the band's horse stable & stalls and livestock pasture & paddocks.


Culture

The Eclipsians are most focused on protecting each other and their practices. The practices for their pantheon is open to outsiders as they allow newcomers to join their clans. Their culture is based on mutual and collective Trust and Respect of one another. They have one democratically recognized leader that is expected to act as a representative of the clans' collective interests.

Clans

Seeing as this group's culture is in its foundational/re-formational stage, the following clans are currently being founded (or re-founded). In order for a Clan to be featured on this section, there must be at least two members. At least one of them must be actively played. Campers that are members of Clans may see higher status, recognition and other benefits in the future...

Osoa

Osoa is a fusion of the two gods of Old: forest god Nanin and river goddess Nin. As the followers of an elder god, those of Osoa have a deep respect for nature and its waters. They are guardians of the natural world.

Diona

Powerful and devoted spirits to the end, Dionians focus on protection, loyalty, duty, passion, honor and healing. This clan's number are stolid and reliable to the end and beyond.

Practices
  • Members of Camp Eclipse come from many different walks of life. Equality is a large ideal. As such, there is no central religion - though there are a few common deities to follow in the Eclipsian pantheon.
  • Polyamory/polygamy is often practiced by Campers. Same-sex couplings are more than welcomed and accepted.
  • Many Campers are non-binary, gender-neutral or otherwise gender non-conforming.
  • Ceremonies such as spiritual conversions, funerals, weddings and rights of passages vary by Clan.
  • Inebriants are not an uncommon sight. These are expected to be kept away from Junior Campers, though.
  • On the 20th of April, Camp Eclipse celebrates the Festival of Life. This is typically an event that is open to non-members.


Animal NPCs

With the help from a family of loners down on their luck in Autumn of 2023, Camp Eclipse now has a stable and two paddocks for their animals. There are two rows of stalls leading to the covered pens within the stables and one large arena for training, riding etc. and a smaller grassy paddock for grazing.

History

In the wake of the Winter of Discontent, long members of New Caledonia were either forced to flee from their home, or remain behind to deal with the hired arms from none other than Rand Coara. Ultimately, the realm was disbanded after the events, causing those that stayed behind to join those who already left to protect their puppies. Seven members of the fallen realm were joined by one returning from the Citadel. Seeking safety in their numbers and collective beliefs, they formed a loner band: Camp Eclipse.
