Event Pause

I’m sure if you gais have been checking into the forum, you’ll note that we haven’t put up any new events. We’d just thought we should probably communicate that it’s been intentional. A lot of people have been hit with life things – classes, family stuff, etc – and we don’t want to put up a lot of events or progress the site timeline when so many are away and unable to participate.

That being said! We are still here, we’re still checking in every day. <3 

We’ll kick back into our normal schedule as people find time. Thanksgiving and end of terms is always a slower time for us, and we didn’t want to try and progress too much when so many of our members are scattered and dealing with life at the moment.

If you gais have any questions or concerns, hit us up.

As always, we’re floating around discord too. ^_^

Universal Events / Event [ 18.7.2587 ] Fateful Times

Fateful Times

18.07.2587 // 9 am

It’s been a minute since we’ve had an event taking place in SWW’s past, so we figured it’s time for another! In this case, it’s time to explore one of the more life-threatening developments that changed the face of Pern:  the discovery of the Beach Snakes.

This date marks the first attack upon the survivors, which means they won’t know what to expect. All characters who could reasonably be present are invited to participate—which extends across most walks of life, given that it was all hands on deck this early in the settlement of the Weyr.

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.

While the event itself takes place in the past, it also advances the current timeline. As such, you can now post threads up to 18.7.2591 without violating the “no posts past the current event” rule.

Things to Keep in Mind
Here’s a list of some facts about this time during Southern Winds’ history, since they might be helpful for posts:
  • The Pass ended in Month 1 of 2587, with Southern Winds being founded in Month 2.
  • By this date (18.7), 99% of the survivors have been relocated to Fort Island. The new Wings have already been assigned as of Month 4. While the new Weyr is continuing to be developed, all people from all walks of life are being encouraged to help with whatever needs done, including efforts such as fishing.
  • This is the settler’s first encounter with Beach Snakes, and they have yet to encounter the Hunters.
  • Neisoth hatched less than a month ago, on 27.6

Ability to Bookmark Threads

Hey again, all! In our never-ending efforts to constantly improve Southern Winds, we now have a new modification that will allow you to keep a personal list of bookmarked threads in-site. This can serve as a great way to keep track of informational topics you regularly refer to, favorite RP threads, or anything else you might want to keep track of more easily.

When you're viewing a topic, there will be a button at the upper right, as shown below, that you can click to add that topic to your bookmarks.


You can then view your list of current bookmarks by selecting the option from the main link menu along the top of the forum. You can manage your bookmarks from that list as well.


We hope that this proves useful to all of you. Let us know if you notice anything that seems to be amiss. :love:

Dragon Details

Name:
Liorith
Pronounced:
[ lee-OAR-ith ]
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
24.06.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 37.9M
Mature Height: 7.6M
Mature Wingspan: 63.2M

General Appearance...

Liorith's true beauty is in the simplicity of his markings. Rather than having drastic stripes, spots, or other variations in his hide, this Bronze is characterized by a rather constant and shimmering hide. While there are subtle differences in shade across him, they are all coalesced around a fetching copper hue that becomes absolutely radiant in the light. His underbelly is just slightly lighter than the rest of him, and his darker wingsails are spattered with bright fleckings of shinier copper. The only marrings on him are three jagged scars down his left flank from the battle he had with his brother during the Hatching.

There's no doubt that Liorith is a big Bronze. Large and muscular, his physical strength matches his emotional resilience. Nevertheless, he's surprisingly agile for such a large creature, with an average height and wingspan for his size.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Liorith's voice is low, slow, and measured. He always considers things before he answers, and the presence of him in Naeharie's mind will ever be solid, stable, and warm. While he isn't rushed, Liorith isn't ponderous or stupid either.

Likes:
Naeharie's Poems : While Liorith himself doesn’t have a creative bone in his body, he has a great appreciation for fine and artistic things. Listening to his rider make them will always fascinate him and make him adore the man all the more.

Peace : Not in terms of fighting, per se -- but Liorith likes when he can just sit quietly with his rider. Since it calms and recharges Naeharie, it will be precious to him too.

Dislikes:
Pointless Conflict : It's different when you're standing up for something you believe in or someone who needs protection -- but fighting or arguing for the sake of it? Keep him out of it. He has no interest.

Villains : Some people just fall into this category for him. Preying on the weak, creating strife just because they feel like it, lying, cheating, treating others badly… consistent behavior of this sort, rather than a mistake or a poor mood, will land  others in this label, and thus in Liorith's poor graces.

Strengths:

* ALTRUISTIC : Liorith is perpetually ready to give everything to everyone. He asks for nothing in return and never seems to tire of being generous, compassionate, and charitable toward others. This Bronze has more than enough strength and time to pass around -- though no one will be as constant a recipient of it as his rider, who Liorith will constantly seek to reassure and support.

* FINESSE : Perhaps surprisingly for a creature of his size, Liorith is no clumsy and lumbering thing. He might not be able to make as tight of turns on the wing as a smaller dragon, but he's quite skilled with his claws and won't inadvertently smash anything under his bulk.

Weaknesses:

* CREATIVITY : Liorith is suited much better to support others in their endeavors, cheering them on and providing a sounding board, than he is to leading or being the voice of inspiration. He's just not a creative dragon, and will stick to tried-and-true methods or else follow in the footsteps of those like Naeharie who he trusts to come up with novel solutions.

* CAUSES : This Bronze can't resist when there's someone in need to be defended or a purpose to be championed. Some might think it makes him insufferable, but Liorith won't ever quite understand why. It will be easy to sway him into doing something if someone manages to figure out that this is one of his weaknesses.

Dragon Details

Name:
Nicynth
Pronounced:
[ NIK-inth ]
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
24.06.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 20.6M
Mature Height: 5.1M
Mature Wingspan: 36.2M

General Appearance...

Nicynth is a bright Green dragon the color of spring. Most of her hide is painted in shades of bright, fresh grass, darkened in speckling along her wings, tail, and spine, along with some darker green stripes and matching undersails. Her upper wing membranes are a bright almost yellow hue, like buds on tiny plants, but this vividness is mellowed somewhat by a bluer green on her underbelly, headknobs, and feet.

She's a tiny thing, never destined to be very large, though she is tall and spindly with slightly larger than average wings. They aren't so big as to cause issues for her, but they do serve to make her look even narrower than she already does. While Nicynth is a rather clumsy dragon, it's an entirely different story in the air, where she becomes graceful and quick. Her speed is by far her greatest strength.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Nicynth is a very physically vocal dragon, and will communicate with chirps and trills to punctuate her comments to others. Her mind voice is bright and airy, almost like gentle sunlight in the morning, and her presence is distinctive in its clarity and constant curiosity.

Likes:
Liorith : Perhaps needless to say, but she'll dote on the Bronze who helped her nearly as much as she will on her own rider. No one will come before Xaeybl, but she'll utterly adore her brother.

Running in the Grass : As clumsy as she might be at times, Nicynth loves getting to go fast. And doubly so when she can feel something soft under her feet like the soft grass in the Bowl.

Dislikes:
Using Her Paws : From Hatching onward, this Green's claws will always be duller than normal and not much good for cutting or fine detail. Instead, Nicynth will adapt to using her mouth and teeth for tasks other dragons might use their paws for -- and she will be skilled in that.

Stormy Weather : Initially, it will mean they stay inside -- and later, she'll wish it still did. It's cold, unpleasant, and just not her idea of a good time.

Strengths:

* ANIMATED : Nicynth's energy more than makes up for her clumsiness. This Green barely seems aware that she's careening into others or tripping over her own feet, and she'll never be self-conscious or shy about it. But she'll always be ready to go and engage in whatever adventures Xaeybl does.

* CAUTIOUS : In contrast to her rider, though, this Green is a bit more measured and motivated by self-preservation. She won't seek to stifle Xaeybl, but she will do her best to think of what could go wrong and head it off at the pass. In that way, Nicynth wants to make sure they both stay safe enough to have a lot of adventures to come.

Weaknesses:

* PHYSICALITY : In this, Nicynth is markedly lacking. She's not strong; her build is spindly; her claws will never be as sharp as other dragons'; and she will ever be a slightly uncoordinated creature. While she will grow out of the abject clumsiness she hatched with, Nicynth will ever be easily over-balanced and not as agile as others of her color. But she is fast.

* GUILELESS : Why someone would be purposefully mean or deceptive is completely beyond her. Nicynth is a wholly sweet, thoughtful, and kind dragon, and considers everyone her friend -- though none more so than Xaeybl, Liorith, and Naeharie. She'll be the last to catch onto any mocking or plotting.

We hope she suits your fancy! :love: When she's mature, Nicynth will Fly on 17.03 and 25.06. She will not be a Force Catch.

Dragon Details

Name:
Theulth
Pronounced:
Thee-ul-th
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
24.6.2591 / Bronze003
Place of Birth:
SWWW
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 36.3M
Mature Height: 7.1M
Mature Wingspan: 58.7

General Appearance...

Theulth hatched dark, covered in the fluids of his egg, and that seemed to make his glisten all the more. He's shiny, as his namesake might suggest, and that will ring true for his entire life. When most think of what a bronze dragon looks like, they'll think of Theulth. Brilliant shades of bright orange metallic and almost yellow hues, he's vibrant and will always be vibrant. Oiled, he'll be beautiful. There isn't awkward patterning or other off-colors to detract from his brilliant hide.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Theulth has the classic 'professor', teacher, or authoritative tone. He always speaks like he knows what he's talking about, even if he doesn't, though it's never patronizing or to put someone down. It's a smooth sound, the sort that one could listen to during a lecture and not fall asleep to.

Likes:
Flying - What dragon doesn't, right? But Theulth loves being in the air. He'll want to practice - practice - practice using his wings at every opportunity because the sky calls to this bronze like it calls to no other. The sky is where he belongs, he's certain of it.

Rules - They most certainly are not made to be broken. He likes it when he understands the rules to the game, how things are supposed to work, and when people abide by them. He also prefers that everyone abide by where they fit in the world.

If you have time to lean... - Then you have time to do something productive. There is no such thing as down time.

Dislikes:
Pointless Distractions - This means, while he's young, lady dragons and women in general won't even hit his radar. Ain't got time for that. When he's an adult, he won't have time for such distractions while he's on duty. Afterwards, by all means. He'll most likely never understand the need to flirt, but he won't mind it when his bonded does.

Busy work - some chores aren't worth a bronze dragon's time. There is a color hierarchy and he firmly believes in it. Some tasks are better suited to smaller dragons. Give him something that really tests him.

Strengths:

* EAGER : Theulth earnestly wants to prove his worth to the weyr and wants to be the best bronze dragon he can be. You won't find him shirking, complaining, or distracted by anything when it's time to buckle down and get to drills or training.

* CONFIDENT : He believes firmly in himself and his bonded. Once given a task, given his word, or promise, he will carry it out to the best of his ability and will always support his bonded because that's what bronze dragons do. He's unshakable in knowing who he is and what he's capable of.

Weaknesses:

* NEARSIGHTED : Theulth is a bronze dragon through and through. He cannot comprehend that there is anyone better than what he is - to include the Black Dragons. He's not aggressive in this assertion, but he is insistent. Likewise, overreaching colors will find no understanding in Theulth.

* ANTISOCIAL : It isn't that he doesn't like other dragons, he just isn't all that keen in interacting with them. Theulth will likely establish a close connection with other bronzes - those that will understand and think like him - but he comes across as cold, diffident, and often detached to others. He is far more apt to tell another dragon what to do then ask them how they are.

Dragon Details

Name:
Karrimuth
Pronounced:
[ CARE-ih-mooth ]
Color:
Black
24.06.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 35.8M
Mature Height: 6.85M
Mature Wingspan: 59.6M

General Appearance...

Observed from above, Karrimuth looks like a mottled, smudgy Black, as dark as many of his siblings -- with a certain look to his hide that seems like billowing smoke or smudged charcoal. From this perspective, the only light areas on him appear to be the trailing edges of his upper wingsails, which fade to a tarnished pewter marginally lighter than the more concentrated darkness down his back. From the front or below, however, it becomes obvious that there's much more to him. His body lightens to a pale silver on the underside. His undersails, too, are much paler, though they mirror the lightening gradient on their other side. If such things existed on Pern, his coloring might garner comparisons to an orca.

In contrast to the sibling he clashed with so soon after hatching, Karrimuth's build is narrow and agile. He'll ever be on the smaller side for a Black dragon, with an average wingspan and less-than-average height for his size, but he'll make up for it in flexibility and finesse. Karrimuth will always be fast, both on his feet and in the air, and tight maneuvering will never faze him.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Karrimuth's voice -- especially his laugh -- is wicked and thrilling. He doesn't see the point in concealing his emotions, so he doesn't bother, meaning that it's very easy to tell when he's angry, amused, bored, or anything else. Sarcasm is one of the hallmarks of his sharp baritone, and his presence is both strong and very distinctive in its almost stinging quality.

Likes:
Sharp Humor : Karrimuth appreciates people who can do more than put up with his unfiltered sarcasm, but answer in kind. He's not exactly a charitable dragon in his opinions of others, and someone that can give as good as they get will be the best kind of friend for him. Insults roll off his back, and he expects others to do the same.

Challenges : He doesn't want to skate by doing the bare minimum. Karrimuth might not personally care if he and Veryk ever end up ranked, but he does want something to do. Anything less is a waste of their potential.

Dislikes:
Pessimism : This Black dragon isn't a shining paragon of optimism either, but dwelling on the negative -- or, more to the point, on the problem -- helps no one. Now get out of his way so he can fix whatever the issue is.

Invasions to his Personal Space : Perhaps as a result of how he hatched, almost immediately ending up tangled with his brother, Karrimuth won't tolerate others getting too close unless he invites them there. He'll snarl, hiss, snap, and outright tell you to go the fuck away if he doesn't want you near.

Strengths:

* BALANCED : Both physically and emotionally -- in contrast to some other Black dragons, Karrimuth is more of a strategist than an impulsive risk-taker. He isn't afraid of conflict, and won't hesitate to take things to a violent place if he judges that's where they need to go, but he's not consumed by rage nor committed to that being the only solution. In a physical sense, he always seems to land on his feet and is hard to either knock over or pin down.

* THICK-SKINNED : Karrimuth doesn't mean his aggression personally, and he won't take anything from others personally either -- even if maybe he should. He'll never be a sensitive or shrinking creature, and criticism as well as dislike will equally fail to bother him. He might not expressly ignore things that can help him and his rider improve, but he won't dwell on it or take hits to his self-confidence.

Weaknesses:

* RUTHLESS : People who earn his and Veryk's combined regard will be few and far between. It's not personal, but Karrimuth sees nothing wrong with climbing over others to get where he wants to be. He may be confused if this turns into a vendetta for someone else, but it certainly won't earn him many friends either.

* UNAPOLOGETIC : Along with the above, he doesn't understand that others might be more sensitive than he is. And even if someone does manage to convince Karrimuth that it might be the truth, he'll maintain that they should toughen up and get over it. He sees apologies as a sign of weakness or wrongdoing, and he'll maintain that he doesn’t make mistakes.

September ended up being a little slower than August, with Kalestath’s Hatching dominating much of it and making for a skipped event week—allowing players to settle in with their new weyrlings and continue to respond to the Hatching. We have even more in store for October, so expect for things to pick up again! There’s quite a lot planned for all of Southern Winds’ various factions, but please don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s something you’d be interested in seeing in the future.

This past month, we raked in a total of 334 posts across all members. Definitely a respectable number! Jarakrisafis is the recipient of our Discipline Egg for September with a total of 54 posts! In addition, Jarak has earned the Diligence Egg for the second month in a row. Congratulations. :3

Thank you again to all of you who make SWW what it is. We wouldn’t be here without you!

Drinks All Around

02.07.2591 // 8PM

Even during the apocalypse, life goes on. As things (ostensibly) grow more stable at both Weyr and Hall, the Pernese attempt a return to normalcy. Recently, a small cavern set off from the Mine Hall’s main dining area has been hollowed out for the Brewer and Vinter Crafthall. Despite the dangers, they have elected to base away from the Weyr so that they can make a more concerted effort to grow crops in the cleared land.

Now that the transition is complete, they are hosting a small soiree for interested parties to drink, be merry, and see their new base of operations. While officially it’s limited to their cavern, odds are it will spill over into the dining area if enough people attend.

Invitations have been extended to all who may want to make an appearance—but bear in mind that this is a classy party, sponsored by reputable sources, rather than an underbelly shindig. Holders, Crafters, and some select riders will be in attendance, with those more regularly at the Weyr able to catch a ride with the latter to and from outside of Prairie’s usual operating hours.

As far as the Brewers and Vinters are concerned, this means their Hall has been officially reformed, though their numbers remain small and not everyone will see it that way.

Also, SanctifiedSavage was awesome and updated the map of Mine Hall to include the Brewers' new area. :3

10. Brewer Cavern
     This cavern has been recently carved out for the Brewers to set up their own, small Craft Hall. The brewers decided to set up in the Mine Hall to be closer to the jungle, despite how dangerous it is, and so they might start growing their own small crops outside the giant metal doors of the Mine Hall.
