    It's that time of year again, and Crazy League has gotten a little carried away. With bunnies delivering Eggs, it's no surprise that your explorations for the next three days may have you spotting eggs. If you see "CL" labeled on those precious eggs around the board it must be a Crazy League Egg! If you want to collect these eggs, then all you really need to learn is how to claim their prize, so peak into Crazy League and learn what it takes! 32 Eggs over the course of the next 3 days! So keep that stomach hungry!
    Participant to find the most eggs gets a Free AL T-Shirt (Includes USA)



    Speaking of Hungry, Crazy League's villages seem to be in unrelenting strife! For every four villagers, there seems to be a wolf problem. If you think you can out best the wolves, then please, sign up to join one of the many games. There's even Special Coupons if you refer a Friend who actually signs up too! Those nasty wolves need to be taught a lesson and the villagers need your help. The Werewolf game is a reoccurring game, when you die, you can sign up for the next game. However, if you find this game to be overly addicting, auto sign-ups are available and convenient for all.

    Sign up for Game Six Here!
    You can sign up for any Game from 6 and up.
    All active games are no longer accepting residents.

    Writing of the Month!




    This Month's Writing Form: Short Story
    Genre: Fantasy
    Setting/Location: High School



    All entries must take place in a high school setting and must have a fantasy theme. A short story should be minimum 2,500 words. The genre "Fantasy" is a world full of the mythical and imaginative. Whether they be based on creatures of Myth like Dragons, Goblins and Elves or The cute things we dream about like Pegasus, Faeries, and to some Gods & Goddesses. Fantasy is also something that may define science, like a world enchanted by magic, full of opposing colors, where the sky is normally blue to humans, it's pink to unicorns. Fantasy is far and in between the creases of our minds and we find them all the time in the stories we trek in when we read. So take a dive into a fantasy filled world and share your spoils with Literature & Writing Members!


    Deadline is January 31st EST
    WoM #1 Voting: February 1st - February 7th.
    WoM #2 goes up February 1st.

    “13 Night of Halloween” is Under Dogs’ Nightmare Based RP Event for this year’s 2012 Halloween


    It is time you challenged your writing skills to effectively twist and contort your characters from what they normally act to the side effects Halloween has on their minds and fears. This RP is meant to be based off of your characters interactions with other characters, their fears and all of it happens in their sleep, Halloween Night where they are trapped for 13 days in the course of 24 hours. When the clock strikes 12 O’Clock in the morning to start the Day of Halloween (in the RP – You decide when this happens), your characters will be locked in their minds to fight their fears, survive 13 Nights of Halloween’s Nightmares.


    For in-depth Details, Please Visit the Under Dogs Clan


    Halloween is almost here and the Under Dogs' Mansion has been decked out in Halloween Decor. Gargoyles thought to protect the borders of the land are glaring down at the vacancy in front of the closed gate. "Beware of Canine's" is molded into the iron work of their gate. A party is soon to be hosted on Hallow's Eve, all participants are unsuspecting to an Ancient Curse that is close to surfacing. Up the gravel road, past the invading wooden forest lies the Mansion Garden and Court Yard. There are cobwebs and spiders scurrying about as the worn out residents make their final touches. Many pumpkins are lined along the stone walls, Wolves, Dogs, and many other creatures of night have been carved into their skin. A few have contorted faces, with eyes filled with an evil touch.

    Upon entry of this Mansion lies a hallway leading to a marble floor ballroom, two double dark oak doors with medieval handles are wide open. Inside lies beverages, food, and ancient artifacts tainted with Halloween colors. Many figurines glow in which cast off lights gleaming from above; where the cathedral ceiling beams high. The Gothic windows allow little of the setting sun from entering as it starts painting the sky outside a set of shades varying between deep red and orange with streams of dying blue. Inside the ballroom also echoes music festivities to match the occasion and slowly, more visitors enter the now opened gates of the Under Dogs Estate.

    Upon the last arrival, the Front Gates Close, the Gargoyles Shift and claw at the stone pillar they rest upon, digging as they crouch, ready to pounce the uninvited intruders that may come. Wings slightly unfurled as if prepared for flight. The mist of the woods snake and slither out blinding the path to the gates. Behind the closed gates, the party ensues. What remaining lights stream out from the surrounding area casts a dark shadow of the gates upon the gravel road, the words begin to shift slowly like a spider re-webbing its home. As the bell in a tower beyond finally calls the ending of Hallow's Eve, the word's clearly finish their transformation and read:
