Regnum Sub Oceanum entry #2

Update for the 29th day of the third month in the year of our Lord, 2019

The Time of prophecy has arrived! Our great King has revealed his name to be

DOMINUS REX



--------------------------------------------------------------

An update on Regnum Sub Oceanum. Dominus Rex, who may be referred to as Dom or Rex for short, has settled nicely into his new Kingdom. He promptly claimed his own personal territory as his own, which just so happened to be all the territory. The Four Furries did not question nor protest this.

A daily routine has already been established for Rex, as we know a King always prefers a routine. Rex and the Furies all arise before dawn, Rex does his rounds, which does take some time as Rex is very thorough, every plant in the Flumen Arboretum seemingly must be inspected, as well as the meditative states of the Cetus Magnus Pesthree, there are exactly three of them, and they must be counted. The Furies re-group and try to stay out of the way.

Then comes the first feeding. There are two variants provided to the Kingdom, large nourishment and small nourishment. The Large in obviously for the King, this is for many reasons, being king is one of them, but another is that the Furies have very small mouths. Still, once the food has been consumed one of the furies may pick up a large pellet of nourishment and just hold it, because it can do little else. Nothing pisses the king off more than this. The King will then pursue the delinquent until the food is surrendered. Unfortunately those little furies are mighty quick and near impossible to catch. Rex may as well be chasing Apollo himself. (not to give unwarranted or implied praise to the furies for their swiftness, of course)

Once the excitement settles then Rex rests a little more in the Grove between the Shrine to Sol and Dragon tooth rock. This his his main dwelling area where he hangs out, it is easy to defend against the pesky furies, there is plenty of foliage all around, the water is less turbulent, and it is a very suitable plot of land for Rex.

Next there is usually a good flaring session just before the second meal of the day. the same mealtime routine commences, and then a rest, and then another patrol of the grounds. Count the Cetus Magnus Pesthree again, and then it is time to prepare for sleep.

In the evening, as soon as the god Sol removes the sun, the Kingdom sleeps. It is with much gratitude that the shrined to Sol still produces heat regardless of light. As soon as the light vanishes the Kingdom sleeps immediately, with military like precision, it would anger Sol to do otherwise. Rex sleeps peacefully every night just below the waters surface nestled in the soft Anacharis which grows next to dragon tooth rock. The Furies, they are on their own. But they tend to separate from each other (abandoning the whole safety within numbers thing) and each find an unoccupied corner.

visually, as you can maybe see, Dominus has gained a little more color to his body and fins, especially on the ribbing on his dorsal. Its only been a few days so I expect even more color enhancement in the future (probably)!
