Universal Events / Re: [ 18.6.2591 ] Rider's Bet VII
« on: September 16, 2018, 10:47:51 PM »
All the OOC bets have now been tallied! The math is viewable up in the records post, but we'll go ahead and summarize here. :happy:

Inki is our winner of the High Roller egg this time, with a massive 82 points. Kyya came in second with 60; Jarak was third with 49. And Rayne didn't quite make her goal of going negative, with a total of 31. <3

Thanks for participating, and don't forget to test your guessing skills at the next Bet! :love:

Hmm hmm hmm. I think I can work with that! It'll probably be best if it's during one of the times she's at the Weyr, as Finna isn't in Prairie Wing and thus doesn't make frequent visits to the Mine Hall. Around lunchtime is probably the easiest place to toss them together. Perhaps Soliana is in the Bowl while Finna is checking her dragon's straps before afternoon duties? If that sounds fine to you, I can go ahead and pop up a thread. :3 I'll probably stick it midway through Month 5, since that would match your timeline for her not having been a Candidate long enough to Stand for Kalestath's Hatching. ^_^

Lovely. :3 Was there a specific way you imagined that going down? If you have certain ideas, I'm all for them. Otherwise, maybe she heard it on the grapevine and goes to seek him out? She'll be very perturbed she didn't hear it from J'ken first if so. >:)

Figred I'd stop in here for all the plotting goodness rather than clutter up the Candidate Mentors thread more. :3

Anyhow, I'd love for Finna to be the one that Searched her, especially since then we will have that opportunity to see how they get along in the future. Did you have any particular head canons for how/when you want the Search to specifically go down? I'm pretty open to whatever, so if you have some specific wants there, I'll be more than happy to oblige. Or, if you prefer, I can just toss up a starter and edit anything that needs it.

Ah, just a misunderstanding then. In any case, her voice has been updated. ^_^

I'm hardly one to talk since I'm already behind on threads, but I have a powerful need to play out Jo learning that J'ken is Assistant Weyrlingmaster. How he tells her/how she finds out is up to you if you have a great desire one way or the other -- I just want to play it at some point. ^_^

I've been looking at face claims - the reason isn't important - and tossed in some that I ultimately didn't end up using. I've gone ahead and just added them to the first post, but they are Erica Cerra, Yaya DaCosta, Sira Kante, and Cris Vianna.

Giving people a heads up because it's gonna be longer than I'd anticipated before the next post. Like another 6-8 hours because I need to sleep. 8D But this'll give y'all more time to respond and get up to mischief. :para:

@Jarakrisafis T'veck would get a pass since he's a Weyrsecond. He'd just be expected not to drink since it can still be alarming for younger dragons. :3 And he'd be expected to attend if Eimerra does.

OOC Hang Out / Re: [ Game ] Would your Character...
« on: August 25, 2018, 07:42:46 PM »
Jossekayne definitely does, although she's a bit afraid to try since she's lost one before.

If it was within their power, would your character ever banish someone to the jungle? (And if so, who?)

8D I actually found some that I liked and were appropriate.

Spoiler for Giiiiiifs:
This one is just Kindolin in general.

This one is directed at Oppesine. >_> Specifically about Saleizo.

And I like to think this one is O'sir processing something incredibly stupid someone else has said.

Apologies for some more unexpected downtime. I've uninstalled the mod that was causing the issue, and have managed to get our custom bbcodes working again -- all save one. The [*center][*/center] tag is working in the sidebar, but not in posts, for a reason I'm still trying to discern. I will keep everyone posted as I figure out a solution. But beyond that, you should be good to post and the like again. Please let me know if you see anything that looks wonky.

I'm slow and such, but! Yes to all of this. Since I think I said I would, I don't mind getting the initial Healer Hall one up. So I'll aim to do that soon. And post with characters other than just Rinokan. XD

Since I'm doing that, would one of you mind tossing up the one with them and J'dan, if we're going to be running them concurrently?

I think the thread with them fretting and Z'ryr helping out would be grand. Especially if Q'nys is a bit sick too but is refusing to admit it because that's just how he is.

Red Riders / Re: R'kan [ 18.08.2573 / Red Weyrling ]
« on: August 15, 2018, 04:32:44 PM »

Major Events:
- 17.10.2589 || Rinokan accepts a Search and settles in among the Candidates, even if it’s a little awkward at first.

- 02.01.2590 || While he’s not officially able to Stand yet, both because he was Searched after the month cut-off and because he’s still a virgin, Rinokan is on the frontlines of a Hatching for the first time. It’s not exactly an auspicious start to his career as a Candidate.

- 13.02.2590 || He doesn’t know at first, but Rinokan has actually made a friend!

- 07.04.2590 || Circumstances conspire to throw him and Droissa together during Imyth’s Flight, and surprisingly it doesn’t turn out too badly.

- 34.06.2590 || Kalestath’s Hatching brings disaster along with it, and Rinokan gets injured tangling with a Red dragonet. Weyrsecond X'kis makes the call to allow him to actually Stand for the clutch, which thrills him to no end; despite the horrors of the day, he’s not afraid of the mutations. Instead, it just reinforces his determination to Impress.

- 25.09.2590 || Oriath’s clutch hatches with much less fanfare than Kalestath’s, and Rinokan finds he’s now bored with being unable to really Stand. Misgivings aside, he’s glad for his friend Droissa when she Impresses Blue Saebrith. But he can’t help but feel a bit like he’s been left behind.

- 35.09.2590 || This whole “unable to Stand” thing has got to go. Rinokan makes himself available in the aftermath of a Green Flight, and meets P'ar, rider of Zeketh. The two hit it off pretty fucking well, which serves as a good first experience of a) being with someone who’s not a Candidate and b) being with another man.

- 33.10.2590 || Imyth’s Hatching happens late in the night just before the new turn, and it’s the first one at which Rinokan is actually eligible to Impress. He doesn’t, but he does his best to be patient. He already made his dragon wait longer than he should have, so he supposes he deserves a little of the same treatment.

New Relationships:
- P'ar || P’ar is the first non-Candidate that Rinokan slept with, as well as the first man, and a surprise friend. The two of them get along remarkably well, and Rinokan has been sure to greet the Blue rider whenever he returns from assignments with Mountain. Since their first encounter, he’s pretty regularly been in P’ar’s bed too. Each one is a good foil for the other.

- Droissa || Beyond P’ar, Droissa is the only person Rinokan really thinks of as a friend. The start of their friendship was a slow one, and a bit awkward at first, but seemed to creep up on both of them. It really solidified for Rinokan, at least, after they ended up together through circumstance during a Gold Flight and it didn’t ruin their friendship. He’s proud of her for having Impressed Saebrith, and will impose on her time when he can, though her being a weyrling means that doesn’t happen often. He really doesn’t want that separation to get between them in a permanent way.

- Sethunya || Vaguely familiar with one another due to their similar Crafthalls, the two of them really hit it off at the Mine Hall Gala. While Seth’s Impression has meant they haven’t had much time to spend together, Rinokan still considers her a good acquaintance if not yet a friend.

- Haithen || Casual friends so far, but Rinokan is fond of her and Saissith. He admires their dedication to extra training and the fact that it paid off in them getting into Jungle right away.

- Oarlen || He’s the one actually talkative person whose company Rinokan doesn’t mind. They got to know each other through Oarlen wanting help training his flits, which is an endeavor Rinokan can respect. He especially appreciates that Oarlen will just talk without him always needing to provide input.

- Calladren || They’ve had some run-ins through Candidacy, and Rinokan wasn’t impressed. He thinks Calladren is a dumb, immature layabout, regardless of whether that’s a fair estimation.

Important Personality Trait & Why:
- RESPONSIBLE || There’s a time to fuck off and a time to get shit done. Never the twain shall meet. Despite appearances to the contrary, Rinokan does have a keen sense of responsibility – maybe not to other people, but at least in terms of tasks that need done and things he’s been charged with. Trying to get him to shirk chores for an adventure is just going to end up with him being pissed off. At least have the decency to wait until everything else is finished first.

- AMBITIOUS || Rinokan doesn’t want to be a nobody forever. This drive has made him buck against his brothers, eventually against the Crafthall he was once a part of, and motivates much of what he does. He doesn’t much care what color of dragon he Impresses, because he’s determined to be the best rider on that color that there ever was. However he might end up making his mark, he’s just determined that someday people will know his name.

- Since Kalestath’s 2590 hatching, Rinokan now has a scar diagonally across his left cheek and scarred bite marks on his left shoulder and upper chest.

- Other scars not previously mentioned in his appearance include little marks from burns and cuts, primarily on his arms and hands from work as a Miner. The most prominent of them is an aged burn slashing across his upper right thigh from dropping hot metal on himself.

- With time, Rinokan has also changed his attitude on the Red and Black dragons. Where before he was distrustful of them and where they would fit in the hierarchy of the Weyr, he's come to empathize with them a fair bit. It certainly helps that he's not afraid of them, when it seems like so many other Candidates are. Anymore, he wouldn't mind if he Impresses one.

Flit Details

As written
Date of Birth:
2568 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
High Reaches Weyr

General Appearance...

When he hatched, Murk was little more than a dull, muddy brown coloróthus his name. As he matured, however, that coloration smoothed into a rich liver hue, with occasional russet highlights. His most eye-catching markings, though, are the areas that paled into a tan, leaving him with large lighter spots much like those on some herdbeasts.

Murk is a sturdy little creature, withstanding extreme conditions without complaintónot that heís often asked to. Heís about midsized for a firelizard of his color, with an especially long tail he uses to help anchor himself to places.


Mind Voice: Due to his training, Murk is very good at transmitting messages as they should beóclear, whole, and unfiltered. His projections have a much-valued clarity to them, and his presence is usually fairly polite, but unmistakable. Heís solid and independent but without being cold.

Visitors : Rather than being standoffish or aloof like some flits, Murk enjoys socializing with other people, dragons, and flits. Heís a little less sure about whers, but thatís due to lack of exposure. Heís happily friendly and affectionate with all.

A Job Well Done : Murk enjoys knowing that heís done a good job with whatever task Líok has asked of him. Heís much more motivated by praise than he is by food.

Líokís Bad Days : Sweet and compassionate, Murk is always upset when his handler is having a rough day with regard to energy or pain. Heís determined to make himself useful, but if Líok doesnít have a task for him, then he will coil up on his lap and just thrum in an attempt to comfort him.

Violence : Itís one of the few things that he just canít stand. Itís not so much that heís a coward as that it just confuses him. Murk will make himself scarce if a conflict seems to be brewing, and encourage Líok and Iskelaith to leave too.

Dragon Details

Date of Birth:
2558 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Clutch Father:
Mature Length: 30M
Mature Height: 6.8M
Mature Wingspan: 52.9M

General Appearance...

This Blue is a bright and attractive dragon, much of his hide the turquoise and cerulean of tropical waters. It darkens to a mellow sapphire or lapis on his underbelly, neck ridges, cheek frills, and outer wingsails. The inner membranes are much the same cerulean as the rest of him, but shift to a nearly violet color in rippled markings close to the bone.

Iskelaith is an absolutely giant Blue, not only as long as he could be but also towering over most others of his color, and with a huge wingspan to boot. Heís thickly muscled, having been given to developing it easily since he hatched. Though he has the impressive stamina and strength to qualify him and his rider for Mountain Wingís regular dutiesówere Líok not unable toóit comes at the cost of his maneuverability. Heís particularly lumbering and awkward on the ground, and Iskelaith wonít be sneaking up on anyone any time soon. The ground shakes too much when he walks.


Mind Voice: Iskelaith sounds deadpan. All the time. To the uninitiated, it probably seems like heís being snide or sarcastic, but really his humor is just dry, and his voice isnít particularly emotive. The tone of it is deep and mellow and smooth.

Fish : Theyíre actually his favorite thing to eat, so the decreased amount of red meat and wherry has suited him just fine. Iskelaith does go well away from the island to fish, however, to avoid the Beach Snakes that live along the coast.

Attention : Iskelaith has never been a shy or retiring creature. Nor is he shameless about soaking in adoration and attention sent his way. Heís not insufferable about it, but he wonít hem and haw and be coy about accepting compliments.

Sticks in the Mud : Heís almost aggressive about his good humor and enjoyment of things, to the point that heíll jeer at other dragons who are overly serious or who he thinks are out to ruin his good time. Iskelaith can be rather combative about it. Who is he hurting by having fun?

Passive Aggression : If you have something to say, say it. Iskelaith would much rather just have the fight and get it over with so everyone can move on with their lives.


* STRONG : Iskelaith is built like a draft horse. Heís not fat, but he is big for his color, muscled and thick, and with the power to boot. His ability to lift, drag, and move heavy things reliably is one of the reasons he and Líok were often sent with other riders to bring back tithes to High Reaches in their youth.

* FORTITUDE : In addition to his physical strength, Iskelaith is tough. He doesnít bend or break under pressure, and heís never been sick a day in his life. Whatever needs done, he can and will do it to the best of his ability.


* RESTLESS : This Blue has always been an active dragon. Itís one of the reasons he bonded to Líok in the first placeóbecause they were similar and physical enough to complement each otherís energy. Since the injury that nearly took Líokís life, though, heís been impatient and restless and a bit bored. He doesnít resent his rider, because he never could, but he is sometimes frustrated they canít just do things anymore.

* HAUGHTY : Iskelaith thinks he knows best. Always. About everything. He gets waspish if someone proves him wrong, but it will take quite a bit of convincing to do so in the first place. He thinks everyone should listen to his advice.
