In the faraway land called Sylestia, lived a petite Lupora named Duchess Rune. She has deemed a prized possession to most adventurers that occasionally glimpsed into her owner's stables. For the juvenile, Lup did not care for the bitter confinements of her owner's stable. Duchess Rune yearned to feel the warmth of the sun and to gaze at the stars that made the twilight sky glitter.
Her owner, Anabella never fed her sylesti's. Sometimes the fifteen-year-old would wait weeks before noticing that all of her pets needed to be mass-revived. Though Duchess Rune didn't have to worry about the dreaded "sleep" yet, she was still terrified to be booted out of the hatchery and forced into the stables. The only time Duchess Rune ever witnessed the sun, was when her mother was obtained by another adventurer for an outrageous price.
The baby Lupora wanted to escape these stables, but Anabella never let her "precious" purebred out of her sight. If Duchess Rune couldn't escape this prison, she at least fancied to accompany the warriors when they aided Anabella in battles against hostile creatures. Of course, her owner perpetually formulated an excuse that Duchess Rune would ruin her fur or chip her claws if she ever tried to fight.
One day, Anabella took her three, level fifty-five Zolnixis and left. About half the day had gone by when the owner had returned with a bag filled with gold coins, armor, and other trinkets that were found along the trail in The Sweet Apple Orchard. Anabella glanced one at Duchess Rune before nodding her head to herself. It was strange to see her owner do that sort of gesture.
Two days had gone by, and Duchess Rune was almost about to turn into an Adolescent. This scared the poor Lupora almost to death, yet some of the stable pets had been happy for the past two days. Presumably, Anabella had received a lot of gold for completing quests. The Lup looked at the hoard of items in one of the corners of the stables. Nothing but seasoned cloth and vials of mysterious liquids laid there.
Suddenly, laughter broke out beyond the doors to the stables. Today was an adoption day, or so the owner calls it. Three people seemed to be accompanying Anabella into the grimy stables. One of them looked at Duchess Rune. The creature aimed at her as her friends began to regard her as well. The owner looked concerned but was not willing to lose potential customers.
"She is all yours!" The owner shouted as the three creatures that rescued Duchess Rune from the stables. They set her on the ground and smiled while handing a few apples to the Lupora.
"You are now free to do as you like, Duchess Rune." The three strangers spoke in unison before walking away from the Lupora.
"Wait!" She squeaked and followed after them, "Who are you?" The strangers stopped and looked at her with amused faces.
"We are the Releasers of Sylestia," with those final words, they disappeared into the morning fog.
Thank you, Syrix, for making the club and this beautiful story. Let's hope she can come back from hiatus proud of the Releasers.
Thanks Larkien for making all the banners! You did a great job.
Please understand that this was not a sob story to get people to join our cause! I had a lot of fun writing this little short story and I've felt as if I did a good job. I want others to understand why I and others release pets for other people's stables. Yes, people will get mad at us. Will that stop me from trying to help the Sylestian economy? No. Will it stop others from trying to do the same? Probably. I can understand if someone wishes not to be apart of this club anymore if they've been getting harassed by others.
The only way this club is going to be taken down is if Krinadon asks me to do so or locks the thread so no one else can post on it. I refuse to let others tell me what I should and should not do (unless it's a site admin; then I will most definitely listen xD). Please refrain from commenting about how horrible I or anyone else is if they join. I will not stand others harassing my fellow releasers.
We realize that this is a sensitive subject and that yes, many of you might feel angry at us.
Keep this in mind: Would you rather have your Sylesti starve, with no say in how they live in captivity, which is no better than death, or be released in the wild? There is no option to feed a released Sylesti, since they are well-fed and happy out in the wild.
Why does it cost so much to retrieve a released Sylesti back from the wild? Because they are happy. They are happy and well-fed, probably with a family. The Sylesti you meet while adventuring attack you, sure! Because they feel disturbed that you have come too close to them. If you came across a bear, poked it and laughed at it, do you think you would get attacked by the bear? The answer is YES. Yes you would.
If you want your precious, cheap pet back, pay us 50 gems or 500k. We would be happy to take your pet out of its natural environment, away from it's family and stuff it in a cage for you.
(That was sarcasm, but yes, we will re-claim you pet for you)
Don't agree with me? Alright, you're free to have your opinion. Just don't bother us about this subject. If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all.
Also, to avoid any conflict, if the player has a specific note on their profile saying they don't want people to release their sylesti's, it might be best if we don't release their pets. Of course, who am I to tell you no? ;)

You can submit any released Sylesti that you think were pretty or unique!

Anyone with a * after their name had asked me to get their weekly info for them
I have recently noticed that a few 'Free Pet Threads' have been popping up, intended for new players who would benefit from this service. Anyone who owns a thread like this may not appreciate people buying and selling their pets. I don't want any fights to erupt between people here and those who have messaged them, saying they are against or do not want their pets bought and released.
This page in simply a reminder for the members of this club to avoid, if they can, releasing from these people. The members in this club still can do as they wish and buy/release pets from these people if they wish. I will ignore any complaints from sellers if they have 'beef' with a member of this club. Do NOT harass releasers if we choose to ignore your request.
We have every right to purchase a pet from a sellers stables AND release them.
