The field had been here for as long as Vira could remember, it never changed, and always remained constant. It was as if stepping into this place made time stand still, it always made Vira feel at peace and safe. Her favorite part was the grand entrance a magnificent gate with tall columns stood in the front of the field.

Reasons why Cubefish are underappreciated
Summertime is the perfect season to head off to Maraqua for a day of fishing!

If you've ever caught a Cubefish while fishing at the Ye Old Fishing Vortex, you probably thought "Oh, look, it's a fish that's cube-shaped", and tossed the fellow back without another thought. Or maybe you've never seen a Cubefish - a shocking thought, really - and now I've piqued your curiosity (muwahaha).

Lupe Pack Detectives-Copycat
It was probably early in the morning, around five-o-clock or so, when I, a Blue Lupe, woke up to the sound of someone loudly banging our front door. I was definitely irritated by it, but I got up as it was not something that I could easily ignore.
