Last Gambit

32.05.2591 / 11PM

Everyone at the Mine Hall, welcome to the first, real gambling den! While there might have been little gambling spots tucked away in the darker corners of the Hall, a gang has come together to capitalize on the growing desire for entertainment. Peacekeepers have been bribed, Miners paid off in marks, and a cavern has been made for the Den deep in the mountain. Away from goody-two-shoes Holders and those that might find such activities below them.

If your character is so inclined, they’ll easily find their way there though. Word travels to those with an interest. Anyone who thinks to turn in the location is going to find the report miraculously lost. >:]

Anyone is free to make a member of Thranne’s gang, either MNPC or a PC. There will be enforcers, dealers, bartenders, and even lady servers. Thranne, himself, is an Important but Unranked NPC, so he’ll be available to be played.

Please keep in mind OOCly, we are not interested at this time for the Den to be discovered or shut down. Any character that would be likely to turn in the location, be upset it exists, etc would not be told of its location.

Beyond that, have fun.

In an attempt to make both those that are playing Weyrlings and those that are playing Weyrlingmaster/Assistants’ lives easier, we’ve opted to create a sort of info thread based on each class. These individual threads will have links to relevant threads like the hatching, feeding, and various lessons pertaining to each graduating class. This should help people who are playing weyrlings see what might be available, as well as who is their classmate for potential current, and past, threads.

It’s also just a nice reference for those playing their teacher to see who they have under their care and gives each class a thread they can freely post in for whatever they’d like – thread requests, etc. In that vein, we’ve attributed relevant information threads to the people playing weyrlingmaster assistants ( in this case, @Kyya  and @Inki  ) in the event they want to add links, edit info, or do what they will. Granting them a little freedom with the topic. ( Don’t worry, guys. We’re still gonna help you keep it updated. 8D ) Once we get another assistant, they’ll likewise be granted a topic of their own. <3

In addition, we wanted to say that we are still looking for someone to adopt D'zel and that we are in need of one other Weyrlingmaster Assistant. The OOC and IC expectations are all available in this thread, though feel free to ask us if you have any questions – in discord, PM, or as a response to this thread.

As always, if there’s something more you’d like to see in the info threads, let us know. Hopefully this helps you gais out as much as it will us! <3

What Lurks
26.5.2591 // 5:10 pm

Continued rain from the day before has left Southern Winds blanketed in fog… and you know what that means! Things have been tense during fishing assignments today, and quiet at first—but at perhaps the most inopportune moment, when the weyrlings are washing their dragons in the Cove, is when danger strikes. Maybe the Snakes were drawn by the amount of people in the water.

Beach Wing, Prairie Wing, weyrlings, Candidates with chores, and some Crafters (like the Fishers) can all be reasonably present in this thread. (And anyone for which you can come up with a reason they'd be there.) Let’s just hope they can all get away from the beach before they get picked off. 8D

Announcements & Events / Updated Past Thread Guidelines
« on: August 08, 2018, 10:29:53 AM »
Just Some Upkeep

We've come a long way since SWW opened, and our timeline has advanced quite a bit! Because of this, we've made a slight change to the rules in the Thread Guide.

Previously, all threads dated prior to 2589 were considered "past", and thus must be posted in the Past and Possibilities forum. Since we're in 2591 now, we've adjusted this to include any threads prior to 2590. All relevant threads have been moved to the correct forum, so if you're missing one, check there first. Their url won't have changed though - just their location. <3

From now on, the past thread cutoff will move up a turn every time we get halfway through an IC year. That means that, for example, once we get to Month 5 in 2592, all threads dated prior to 2591 will need to be created or moved to the Past and Possibilities board.

Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions! And don't worry that we're trying to rush you through current threads or discourage you from creating others in the past. We're just aiming to keep things tidied up. :love:

19.04 - Kalestath Clutches - OOC
Kalestath has finally laid her clutch -- numbering a whopping 32 eggs, which is a Pass-sized nest. Now that she's done, other denizens of the Weyr can come pay their respects and look at the eggs.

24.04 - Necessity Breeds Teamwork - OOC
With continuing food shortages in the Weyr, S'bok organizes a multi-Wing hunt for wherry in the jungle. This time, participation isn't voluntary.

30.04 - A Late Night Snack - OOC
Despite the hunt earlier in the month, some are still dissatisfied with the state of rationing - and someone has taken it into their own hands by attacking a Herder and butchering a runner.

04.05 - Sentencing - OOC
Prairie Wing's blockade caught those who killed the runner, and the Weyrleadership has handed justice over to the Crafters to mete out. The offenders will be lashed and then banished from the Weyr.

SWW has been truckin’ along and the plot ever moves forward! It’s crazy to think that the IC turn started in 2589 – we still accidentally type that date sometimes. But we’re halfway through the current IC turn of 2591 and our story is progressing. Between lovely fights, sweet character drama, and everyone potentially starving, it’s been great. Right?

We’ve tallied up the IC posts for July and we hit a respectable, and impressive, 217. Pretty good for the middle of summer, eh? Inki has earned the Discipline Egg for July as the member with the most posts, hitting 29! <3 Congrats! Once the month rolls over, the egg will be removed from her profile and be eligible for someone else to claim. Gotta collect all dem eggs!

As always, SWW isn’t what it is without those that come in and hang out. Whether it’s to post every day, once a week, or whenever you find the time. It’s just awesome having you here!

Sentencing

04.05.2591 // 5:45 AM

Justice is swift and certain in the Weyr, as everyone will be reminded of this morning. Prairie Wing’s inspections after the slaughtered runner bore fruit, as some of the riders discovered individuals with packaged meat trying to make their way to the Mine Hall. With no real explanation for it, those deemed responsible were detained.

Since this is a Crafter matter, the Weyrleadership has turned sentencing and punishment over to the Herders. Since they have no current Masters, they have elected Keassa, one of their most senior Journeymen, to carry out the decision:  the three people caught will be lashed at her hand and then banished from the Weyr for the rest of their lives.

This decision was agreed upon by the Herders and Miners still ostensibly in charge of the Hall, particularly since that location has Peacekeepers with the authority to enforce a close watching of the criminals. Nevertheless, some Holders may see this as the Weyr dumping their criminals at the Hall’s doorstep.

Crafters
All Crafters, not just Herders and Farmers, have been invited to witness the lashing and banishment this morning. Attendance is still voluntary, but some Masters and Journeymen may have all but herded their apprentices to come witness what happens to people who attack the Crafthalls.

Non-Crafters
This isn’t intended to be a Weyr-wide event, but people will not be turned away if they want to watch, gathering with the Crafters in front of the barn where the crime took place. The Weyrleadership will be in attendance as a show of support, and the lashing is taking place early so that other riders may also attend if they wish.

Further Note
Here is Prairie's inspection thread! Once the thread has been posted, Prairie Wing’s inspections will be linked here as well. If anyone wants to have a rider responsible for catching one of the three criminals, you certainly can! By the same token, if anyone wants to, a) play a current PC as one of the criminals, or b) make said criminals into MNPCs (or actual PCs, if you’re feeling frisky), live your dreams. Just know that it’s first come, first serve for taking those spots.

As slots are claimed, we will list them and pertinent information here for easy tracking!

Kalestath’s Clutch

19.04.2591 // 7PM


Kalestath has finally laid her clutch of a healthy, large 32 eggs. These are still Pass clutch sized numbers. Now that Halirina has stepped out of the Sands, she – and Kalestath, however reluctant – are welcoming people to come see the new eggs hardening on the Sands. Candidates are welcome to take a curious peek – so long as they don’t touch – and Riders are encouraged to come and pay their respects. Weyrfolk are likely to swing by, if only out of sheer curiosity.

Alahn actually tallied up all the IC posts for June! We had a whopping 120 in-character posts this last month… and that monster, Sanctified, had a whole third of them with 40 IC posts. :faint: That means that she got the Discipline Egg for June! Her winning means that all staff are disqualified from claiming it for July. Once the month rolls over again, the egg will be removed from her profile and awarded to whoever has the highest post count! Good luck.

Once again, we appreciate all of you. Thank you for being here. <3

Just a Casual Brawl

13.04.2591 // 12:20 PM

Since the first official wher fight at the Mine Hall, certain Holder elements have begun to make a quiet resurgence as they test the waters. This will be the first indication to the respectable Holders and Crafters as a whole that something might be amiss, though most are going to dismiss it as just a fight brought on by the tensions of diminished food and lingering recovery from the sickness that swept the settlement. Surely this is just a one-off disturbance? Maybe brought on by the passing of the one turn anniversary since the riot at the Weyr?

Whatever the case, the ongoing issues bubble to the surface even in the previous relative peace of the Mine Hall’s dining area. A punch is thrown, and then the flash of a knife. Holders may expect the Peacekeepers to quickly settle the disagreement, but Crafters, more used to their own autonomy, may take matters into their own hands.

Surely things won’t get as bad as they were at Nabol. Or, Faranth forbid, at Fort.

What does this mean?
Some of the gangs that previously existed at Fort are starting to reform, and their back-tunnel dealings and rivalries are both starting to spill over into daily life at Mine Hall. For many, this will seem very, very familiar. Whether or not your character will get involved is up to you, but there’s going to be a scuffle as an ongoing fight over limited territory breaks out into actual violence at lunch time. :bird:

It's that time again. As of 02.04, the weyrlings of Imyth's 2589 class have moved into their own ground weyrs, which they will occupy until their graduation. As exciting as it is, it's bound to be a bit nerve-wracking too, since this is another step toward their dragons maturing and their transition to being fully fledged riders.

With the small amount of active PCs in this clutch, there will be no official move-out thread. However, please feel free to post your weyrlings moving out if you feel so inclined! This would be a great opportunity for organizing a thread with fellow classmates -- or a solo if that's your thing. :love: Congrats to those weyrlings who have now moved into their weyrs!

Imyth’s Flight

7.4.2590 / 5:16 am

Early in the morning before the heat has really descended on the Weyr, Junior Queen Imyth chases Maelboroth from what was once their weyr. Blooding a herdbeast and taking to the sky, she summons the males of Southern Winds to chase her—and this Gold is only interested in the best of mates. Odds are, as with most Gold Flights, this will be a long one and the Weyr will be having a day off.

It’s safe to say that most aren’t expecting X'kis to keep his Weyrsecond position, since Browns aren’t known to actually win Queen Flights outside of extenuating circumstances. And though his turn of leadership has been unimpeachable, it’s safe to say that the Jungle riders who shunned this Weyrwoman last turn may be turning out to reclaim what they see as the right way of things.

If any of your male dragons are going to be participating, please post here with the following form so we can keep an updated list. You don’t have to be a Weyrsecond Contender OOCly to participate ICly! This is just gauging who is willing to take on the OOC responsibilities of having a ranked character.

Character: [{Character}] of Dragonth
Weyrsecond Contender: Yes/No. This is strictly for our OOC purposes. Do you want your character to potentially become Eimerra’s Weyrsecond? Please understand that this comes with OOC responsibilities that include making at least one IC post with that character per week and responding to all events either OOC or IC. This will also count toward the “two ranked characters” total for you, and may include some admin guidance in events and weyr politics. If you would like your character to be a contender, please also read and post in the Gold Flight Contenders thread if they are not already listed.

Please note that we won't be promoting anyone who is already involved in an IC romantic relationship who wants to maintain that relationship while Weyrsecond. Whoever wins will be with Eimerra and no other.

Code: [Select]
[b]Character:[/b] [{Character}] of [dragonth]Dragonth[/dragonth]
[b]Weyrsecond Contender:[/b] Yes/No.

Weyrfolk / Candidates / Crafters / Holders:
Since Gold dragons project their Flight Lust far more than Greens, this will affect you too. In short, today is likely going to be an unofficial day off for the weyr, and most responsibilities, unless essentially vital, will be excused. Those not willing to take part best stay out of public areas and keep to themselves.

Weyrlings:
As always, weyrlings will be confined to the Barracks and will be closely supervised by D’zel and the Asistant Weyrlingmasters. Expect busy-work chores as a distraction. The exception to this rule are those weyrlings in the Kalestath 2589 class whose dragons are now old enough to participate in Flights.

Flashover

31.03.2563 // 11 am

Since y’all seem to like riots, we decided to give you another. This time, we’re setting everyone loose on the infamous Nabol riots! This is an event that still colors SWW’s history pretty strongly, heightening tensions between Weyr- and Holdfolk and serving as a reminder of just how bad things sometimes got during the Pass.

How does this event work?
It functions just like any other event, with the exception that it’s set in the past. However, these are still canonical, which means that we can’t have any ridiculous hijinks. It also means that only characters who could reasonably participate can join; for example, a character that’s currently only 12 wouldn’t have been born yet. And in this instance, only those living in Nabol—or visiting from High Reaches Weyr—would reasonably be in attendance.

While the event itself takes place in the past, it also advances the current timeline. As such, you can now post threads up to 31.3.2591 without violating the “no posts past the current event” rule.

Things to Keep in Mind
Here’s a list of some facts about the Nabol riots as a whole since they might be helpful for posts:
  • Nabol has been getting more and more crowded over the turns, especially with the fall of Crom in 2561. This has resulted in less food, fewer jobs for native and unskilled Nabolese as higher-qualified Holders move in, and a lot of resentment. The biggest conflicts are between Nabolese Holders and those from other settlements and the friction between Holders and riders who many see as failing at their purpose to protect Pern.
  • The group of riders is fairly small, but also open to play:  a few Search riders, and some on other colors to help transport the tithe and guard it since the tensions in Nabol are well-known. They are led by a Bronze rider.
  • For this event, the current Nabolese Lord Holder is Vandrae. Arrogant, greedy, and corrupt, he has recently alienated High Reaches Weyr by openly accusing the riders of being responsible for the catastrophic Pass. Nabol’s Peacekeepers are basically his personal guard and enforcement squad, and they are feared by many Holders. Vandrae loses his second son, Hedven (17 turns), during the riots, but he and his oldest son, Verran, escape to Ruatha.
  • The riots last for many days and eventually turn into looting and all out violence. Many families pack up and brave Threadfall to nearby Ruatha in hopes of better conditions. After about a week of unsuccessful attempts to get Nabol back under control, the Lord Holder declares the Hold closed and the remaining people are officially evacuated. These individuals will be better off and more likely to survive, since High Reaches riders reluctantly show up to help them—notably, the Wings don’t land:  they simply fight Thread in the air without offering further assistance.

Murphy’s Law

29.3.2591 // 8:25 am

So far in the history of Southern Winds, the Pernese have had to deal with Snakes, Hunters, Skycoursers, Sharpfish, lethal Hatchings, cursed Wingleader positions, a lack of food—and, most recently, a sandscab infestation. But of all the things they’ve had to endure, rampant disease was not among them. However, though it might not be widely known among the general populace, the Healers have been braced for something like this for a while. Outbreaks of disease were an inevitable part of life at Fort Hold, with so many people crushed in together—and their records as well as the older members of their Craft would remember that the warmer Southern Continent always seemed to have more diseases than the North…

Flush fever was fairly uncommon in the South, and this is the first outbreak of it—much less any tropical disease—in significant numbers on the island. Because of the long incubation period before symptoms appear, the Healers aren’t sure where the outbreak began, especially since it’s affecting riders, weyrfolk, and even Crafters alike, but it’s serious enough to warrant an announcement in the Weyr. Wingleaders will have already informed their Wings earlier in the morning when gathered for duties.

During breakfast, Healer Craftmaster Brigan, under the approval of the Weyrleadership, issues a state of emergency. Those exhibiting symptoms are highly encouraged to check in at the Healer Hall for screening and treatment. While individuals with relatively mild cases may recuperate in their weyrs, they are likewise encouraged to have healthy friends or relatives check in on them from time to time. The Hall has already encountered a few cases that have developed into more advanced and life-threatening stages.

While this is going on, the Weyr will be operating with something of a skeleton crew, and some activities may even come to a halt. Movement between the Weyr and Hold will proceed as normal since flush fever is not contagious among humans, and dragonkin cannot catch it.

Flush Fever –
Spoiler for Information & Symptoms:
Flush fever is a tropical disease characterized by high fever, headache, vomiting, muscle and joint pain, and the symptom that gives it its name—a reddened skin rash. Symptoms usually begin three to fourteen days after infection, and recovery usually takes between three and seven days after onset. Even after recuperation from the disease, feelings of fatigue can last for many weeks.

In rare cases, symptoms can worsen as the fever diminishes, resulting in severe bleeding and associated anemia, low blood pressure, and shock. This potentially lethal form of the disease is more common in children and young adults.

(For those interested in this sort of thing, the vector for this disease is mosquitos, and it’s modeled after Dengue fever.)

Firelizard PSD Commission

Another new art update! We now have our own custom firelizard template, created by cweinman, the same artist that has done our Hunter, Beach Snake, Sharpfish, Wher, and Hatchling art.


These are for SWW only, but we're happy to let other people color and use these templates for their characters here. Should you wish to get the PSD file, simply PM the Southern Records account or pop on Discord in the Admin Help channel and we'll get you the file.

Beyond that, at least the staff will be using this for any firelizard clutches we host in the future. :3 We hope you like it!

Infestation

23.3.2591 // 6:10 am

After an otherwise calm first half of the month, the hits start rolling in again when the Fishers make a disastrous discovery early in the morning. The Hall had been making strides in stockpiling some cured fish, salted and preserved in barrels to keep the meat usable longer as the catches in the Cove begin to dry up. Before the latest stores could be moved into the depth of the Weyr’s preserving caverns, they are compromised by an insectoid threat.

Sandscabs are a notorious pest on Fort Island; while they couldn’t survive on the milder beaches of the Northern Continent, they were previously common around the coasts of Ista and the southern settlements. None had been particularly upset about them apparently going extinct during the Pass—but as with many things, they’ve carved out a place for themselves in what does remain of Pern. Small as fleas but numerous in number, they infest—and nest—in decaying organic matter on the edges of the sea, laying thousands of eggs that, in turn, hatch into thousands of larva and render meat and vegetation alike unusable.

It’s a disappointing revelation, once the Fishers realize that turns of use and damage to the barrels have allowed sandscabs inside. So it’s going to be a rough morning, as they and the riders of Beach Wing have to empty the barrels further down the beach—away from where fishing is being conducted for the day—and burn it all in hopes of eradicating the problem. No doubt, spare Candidates doing chores will be pulled into the work too, and some of Prairie may forego their morning drills to aid in the effort as well.

Announcements & Events / Gold Flights and Ranked Rules Adjustments
« on: March 15, 2018, 03:28:28 PM »
Gold Flights and Ranked Rules

So we have a couple of new things we wanted to announce, along with Oriath rising. 8D

A bit ago we did a clarification of ranked characters, and we’ve adjusted somewhat the rules for ranked characters:

Quote
Make an IC post at least once every week and participate in events.  Plot out threads pertaining to rank with possible admin guidance. Given our ever changing plot, if your character obtains a rank, we may require that character to become an adoptable character. If you become inactive for 2 weeks, they will be put up for adoption and become playable by staff or they will drop off in whatever manner is specified in their profile and the rank will be lost – depending on what suits the plot best. You may reclaim the character upon your return. If your character was once an adoptable NPC, they will again become such until someone readopts them.

The rule did not used to require ranked characters to become adoptable, and they would simply lose their rank. This new adjustment allows some flexibility regarding the ranked position. We thought that necessary as we created a new opportunity for people to move up into a ranked position with their characters regarding the Contenders.

Gold Flight Contenders gives people the opportunity to move up into the position of Weyrleader if they participate in a Gold Flight. This isn’t meant to be a competition, really. We just wanted to know who might be comfortable taking on a ranked character when the opportunity arose.

We don’t want to overly stress the importance of the weyrleaders here at SWW, as we strive to create important events that everyone can participate in. Not just ranked riders. But we also understand that this might be an area of interest for some people, or their characters, and it might be something they might want to explore. So we’ve laid out what it means and how we’d like to handle it.

If you have questions regarding this, concerns, suggestions, etc, as always, please let us know in this thread or discord. <3

Rider Assignments / Gold Flight Contenders
« on: March 15, 2018, 03:18:58 PM »
Gold Flight Contenders

Here at Southern Winds, we occasionally have open Gold Flights where we allow the winner to be a Rider chosen at random. However, we don’t want to surprise a player with a Ranked Rider’s responsibilities, especially if that player either doesn’t want it or isn’t sure what those responsibilities might be. While we all like to have fun, relax, and RP, we do like to have some minimal activity requirements for our Ranked Riders and prevent one person from having too many ranked characters. That being said, this thread is being created to allow people to sign up for Contender positions.

What is a Contender?
Bronze, Brown, and Black Riders of age who want to participate in a Gold Flight who wish to possibly be a winner. The Player of the character will accept the Ranked OOC responsibilities should their character win. This means having minimal activity on the site and accepting admin guidance of their character during the duration of their ranked term – either until they lose the next Gold Flight or they do something ICly to become demoted.

What are Ranked Character Requirements?
Per our rules:
Members are allowed to make/adopt a max of 2 ranked characters. Staff will only have a max of 3 ranked characters for the purposes of plot movement.

Make an IC post at least once every week and participate in events.  Plot out threads pertaining to rank with possible admin guidance. Given our ever changing plot, if your character obtains a rank, we may require that character to become an adoptable character. If you become inactive for 2 weeks, they will be put up for adoption and become playable by staff or they will drop off in whatever manner is specified in their profile and the rank will be lost – depending on what suits the plot best. You may reclaim the character upon your return. If your character was once an adoptable NPC, they will again become such until someone readopts them.

Let us stress:
If the character was not adoptable before obtaining the rank, they will need to become adoptable if they become ranked. We will keep your other preferences in mind, but for the sake of the site, and the plot, it may become necessary for the staff to play a ranked character in the event someone, for any number of reasons, takes a leave of absence or otherwise leaves the site.

What is admin guidance?
We will never tell you how to play your character, but we may ask you to create an event, respond to a particular event, or ask that something does not happen to your character for the sake of the plot. I.E. We may ask that your character forgo being injured in a hunter thread, or we might ask that they be injured. We will never ask anything out of character and we’ll never do anything to your character without your permission or that goes beyond your own mauling permissions.

Withdrawing a Contender
You may choose to remove a character from this list at any time, by responding to this thread, up until said character becomes ranked.

Brown Riders / Re: W'thir [34.06.2566 9th Pass] | Brown Weyrling
« on: March 14, 2018, 08:44:23 PM »

Dragon Details

Name:
Kelsameth
Pronounced:
[ KELL-sah-meth ]
Color:
Brown
Date of Birth:
33.10.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Imyth
Clutch Father:
Maelboroth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 31.6M
Mature Height: 6.4M
Mature Wingspan: 54.5M

General Appearance...

Kelsameth is not a dragon of extreme markings. Much of his hide matches the brown of klah mixed with milk, though it does hold some subtle texturing like treated leather. His spine and ridges are a fuzz darker, straying more toward bistre; this color also appears in a smudged patch low on his chest and belly, slightly darkening his paws, and on the tip of his tail. The rest of his underside is the same fawn color his wings are when he hatches -- but his wingsails will darken as he gets older until that soft, light color remains only near the bones of his wings.


Kelsameth is a tiny thing when he hatches, almost petite looking as far as Browns go. It's not that he's scrawny, he's just diminutive. When he's fully grown, he'll still be on the fairly small side, with a dainty appearance and long legs that add to that impression. He's still only of an average height, however, and the width of his wingspan is too. But he does have broad sails that make for prolonged gliding and a fair bit of momentum when he gets going.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Kelsameth has a sweet, high voice that makes him sound shyer and more delicate than he really is. It's difficult to take him seriously even when he's angry, which he hates, and he just doesn't have a voice suited for sounding authoritative or intimidating. Beyond that, he is a very vocal dragon when it comes to making noises, and will continue to trill, purr, and chirp into adulthood.

Likes:
Manners : You don't have to be overly stiff and formal, but politeness goes a long way with him. He can be a little pretentious and judgmental about people who do something he considers rude.

Structure : This Brown likes things to make sense. Leaving anything up to chance or chaos is unappealing to him, and some sort of order or structure seems the best way to combat that. He can get a bit flustered if he's forced to violate one for some reason, and even more so if he sees others purposefully bucking against it.

Dislikes:
Being Talked Over : Kelsameth knows that he doesn't sound very commanding, so it makes him particularly upset when someone interrupts him and drowns him out or doesn't listen to what he has to say. He has a bit of a sore spot about being pushed to the wayside.

Carelessness : Kelsameth cares -- a lot -- and wants you to as well. Not being on time, not following the rules, and especially not putting your complete effort into something frustrates him, and W'thir will probably be treated to him ranting about other weyrlings he sees as just. not. caring enough.

Strengths:

* MANAGEMENT : Were he human, Kelsameth would make a great secretary, being the sort that could untangle miles of bureaucratic red tape with little fuss. He's very smart and has an easy time understanding the logistics and implications of certain situations. He's as 'bookish' and studious as any dragon can be, with the ability to quickly understand complex concepts -- even if, due to the nature of dragon memory, he will forget it later.

* FIRM : Others may think he's fragile or a shrinking violet because he's quiet a lot, but Kelsameth is no pushover. Nor is he a coward. If he says no, he means no, and he's not prone to being fickle or unable to make up his mind. He does his best to be diplomatic about disagreements, but it's not in his nature to bend just to avoid an argument. And when it's worth it to him, he will tell you what for -- even if his words are rushed, indignant, and unsteady with emotion.

Weaknesses:

* PERFECTIONIST : Not in the sense that he's paralyzed with anxiety, but that he's prone to spreading himself too thin or taking on too many responsibilities because, well, it'll just get done right if he does it himself. Kelsameth has a difficult time letting go and trusting others to get the job done, though he doesn't mean it maliciously. He just likes to be in control of anything that might affect him. (It's true he can be a little high-strung and neurotic about it, though.)

* KLUTZ : This Brown is really, really not graceful on the ground. Even at his hatching, Kelsameth was unsteady on his feet, and it will take him longer to stop lurching around and get his balance as he grows. He's very self-conscious about it, and for this reason tends to plant himself somewhere and refuse to move until he and W'thir absolutely need to or he can fly to their destination.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #8A643B; Text: #E6CEB3

Member Info...

Anything Else:
Made per the process outlined at the Optional Weyrling Application. Please let us know via PM if you choose to accept or reject this dragon.

We hope you like him! :love:

Updating Events

In an effort to make it a bit more clear what events are still being actively roleplayed in, have threads open, etc we've changed the message icons to reflect that in the Events RP Board - Universal Events & Construction Events

Now, if an event has an open IC thread, the icon will appear as:


Once the staff has closed an event, it'll show up as:


We will also post a banner in the topic to indicate that it has been closed, though this doesn't mean that the event can't be played out in other threads, request to be reopened, posted in for questions, or be checked in with characters.

We're hoping that this will make it easier to figure out which events are active, at a glance, in the appropriate forums should someone want to participate in events that are still active but might not have a post in the IC Recent box.

Hopefully this is as helpful as we want it to be.  :love: If you guys have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please let us know here or discord!

Skycoursers, previously only seen high in their mountain aeries, have broken into small beast coops during the night in search of food. Those firelizards who presume to drive them off do not fare much better against such vicious predators.

19.1.2591 – Backalley BrawlOOC
Fort Hold’s sordid past is making an appearance once again. Now distanced from the Weyr’s martial law, some Holders are interested picking up their old habits. Held in the secret quiet of back tunnels, the island’s first wher fight is held.

32.1.2591 – Strike It RichOOC
The small group of Miners still working away at the tunnels rather than the Hold are rewarded for their efforts by the discovery of a rich iron deposit. This new source of metal will no doubt mean tool repairs, and maybe even blades. But some Holders may be unhappy with the distraction this proves to be to the Miners previously helping them with construction.

1.2.2591 – Utaith's FlightOOC
On a windy, wintry day, Mountain Reserve Utaith takes to the skies for her annual flight.

6.2.2591 – Maiden VoyageOOC
The fisher's work on their sea ship has finally terminated, and on a frosty morning, early risers gather to see the crew off on their first multi-day voyage into the open ocean.

14.2.2591 – Kill The MessengerOOC
The Hunters have are certainly not allowing themselves to be forgotten, and a well-timed attack leaves residents of the Mine Hall and Prairie Wing reeling from their organisation.

22.2.2591 – Damerinth's FlightOOC
With the sun staining the sky, X'hos's Damerinth calls the males of the Weyr to impress her and win her affections.

31.2.2591 – Can't Beat GravityOOC
While the ongoing mining and construction has been going rather well, all that changes when some of the tunnels collapse in a cave-in.

It seems that the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 have been rough on most of us. Things have been a little quieter around Southern Winds over the past few months, but we’re not going anywhere. ^_^ This overview is the composite of everything that’s gone on since December, so it’s really just a recap for those who have been with us all along, and hopefully a helpful tool for our new additions.

We won’t be awarding the Diligence Egg this month because, surprise! Alahn forgot to keep track of posts. So for that, I apologize. I’ve set up a spreadsheet to keep track of them for March, so the egg will be handed out to the member who has posted the most through this month at the start of April.

Beyond that, we hope things improve and/or keep going better for you all. Thanks for sticking around. <3
