Current Month
7.2591 A.R.
9th Interval

Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every OOC week. This means our story is ever evolving and Southern Winds is changing. Events for the current month are listed here, once you've registered for an account.

Our roleplay time is pretty fluid. We allow you to play anything that may have happened in the past, but not in the future, as events that may affect the entire weyr may ruin futuristic plots.

We list Flights, Clutches, and Hatchings for both Dragons and Whers here, though not for firelizards.  There are Candidate events, Weyrling classes, Holder plots, and Crafthall developments -- a little bit of something for everyone.

See previous events here!

Feel free to say hello, guesties! Registered members can request a colored name here.

this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

Pernese Online A Gift of Dragons Shadowplay Topsites Top RP Sites


Hello and Welcome!

http://southernwindsweyr.net/Images/news icon copy.png We are a mature, 9th Interval AU Pern. We've destroyed almost the entire planet in a catastrophic event. While we feature 2 new mutations, we stick pretty close to canon. We've Ranks, roles, and positions for just about anyone who wants to get involved, with a relaxed community. Play and post at your own pace. Swing by and say hello!

Southern Winds uses a subaccount system to distinguish between Players and their Characters. So REGISTER with your Player Account Name and the admin will assign you your Character Subaccount once your character is approved!

Southern Winds is a Mature Roleplay. This means we allow for sexual, violent content that would be found in a struggling, 9th Interval Pern. Sex is common place in the Weyr and terrible deaths are no stranger here. As such, our players should be 18+. These themes are to be handled maturely at all times.

As she wasn't trying to overwhelm or dominate the conversation, it had been fun to chat about her own little blue and share some of the common details about the other woman's green. It was one of the things she loved to do when she was able to spend time with others who had the little flits as their companions, something that was becoming more and more often the case.

However, as the conversation between others shifted a little bit Sionann turned her attention back toward it "Oh! So recently? That must be a little exciting. I'm a candidate as well but... it's been a while" and that was becoming an old, familiar kind of pain. The sort that had settled into being bearable because it was something that she had to live with, there had been no alternative and there would continue to be none until some dragon decided to pick her out from the rest.

If it happened.

"I know it can seem daunting ...especially once all the lessons start. If you want a hand, I'd love to help" yes, it was bright and friendly and possibly a little bit pushy but she wanted to be able to make the offer, so that he didn't feel quite so alone or afraid.

So I forgot about this because I was poor this last month. But I have just ordered the book and it should arrive just after my final exams. So hopefully I can pick it up and lock myself in my room until I've finished it  :excited:

It occurred to Zarenaak that he was surrounded by women, and he wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. He idly watched them interact, only half-listening as Sionann and Syrena talked about their firelizards and Shalla explained how she’d made the rolls. It’s not like he had anything of value to add to the conversation: he didn’t have any experience with firelizards, and he knew absolutely nothing about baking. The only person he had anything immediately in common with was Cinnacai, and he really wasn’t in the right frame of mind to strike up a conversation about farming. They all seemed pleasant, and the conversation benign, he was just--really horrible at small talk. And stressed out of his mind, which was the opposite of helpful.

He was pulled out of his muddy thoughts when Cinnacai asked the table at large about their occupations, giving him something more immediate to stress out about. It still didn’t feel real, was the thing, and it felt like every time he acknowledged it was another chance for someone to correct the mistake and send him on his way. He was really starting to get frustrated with himself--more frustrated with himself, anyway--and forced himself to answer:

“Yah,” he replied, running a hand through his hair in a fit of nerves. "As of yesterday, anyway,” he muttered quietly, and took a sip of klah to distract himself while he waited to hear about the others.

Spoiler for ooc:
@Inki Thanks for the heads up! I went back and did some minor editing to account for that and shall proceed as such from now on. :3

I return! Victoria Island was lovely and we actually got really lucky with the weather: the week before it'd been pouring rain, but it was a moderate temperature and sunny the entire time we were there. Among other things, we visited the Butchart Gardens and the Royal BC Museum, and introduced gram to poutine. We also learned a very important lesson: book the ferry waaaay in advance. We got lucky going, but coming back we ended up having to drive up to Sidney and taking the ferry there, which increased our travel home time by quite a bit.

Hope everyone is well!

Canons - Wanted  - Advertise?

[align=justify]Hey you, come here. Yeah, you. I want to ask you a few questions. Are you tired of the same old canon plots? Strict admin? Are you bored with the censorship of your own perspective of how a character should be? Being kept out of game-changing plots? Not having a voice in plotting when it comes to the site? Push that old out of the window and take a look at Radioactive. Who doesn't want to be part of site-wide plots? Want to be valued as a member?  Radioactive does not have single-minded staff and members. We are huge plotters that want to help you make your dream stories and plots come true. Don't believe me? Check out our site-wide plot analysis thread to see what you can look forward too. On top of that, we crave to create a community that is fun and exciting. So, if you want the same old deal, check out those other sites. If you want something new, come to Radioactive. [/align]

Either way, stay evil, Dollface!

We should get rid of that one. Anedaith said as she poked a card with her snout.

D'via blinked. “I don't think you can swap cards 'Daith.” At least that was the impression she'd got from the explanation of how the game worked. They had to match the ones they had with the ones that would be put down. Maybe.

Well then, we will... I'm not sure. She looked rather lost and twisted her head to regard Heppath and D'vik. What should we be doing? Should we be betting something?

D'via shrugged slightly as she tilted her cards towards her brother and answered Ki'ki. “I don't know if we have anything to bet with.”
Weyrling Barracks / Re: Welcome to your new life [25.6.2591 | 8pm] Open - 2591 Weyrlings

Anedaith didn't seem perturbed by the negative response as she dashed off again. “She's going to just drop into sleep soon.” She said fondly, and with a hint of exasperation. Vassatiere and Na'va seem to have got dragons that behaved as expected. Her dragon didn't seem to have any setting in between sleep and dashing around with a curiousity the candidate lessons had suggested wouldn't be there for a few months. Or maybe she'd just get more curious...

The weyrlingmaster had left with another weyrling and so she shrugged. “I think they'll be back. I mean, I wouldn't want to ask something here.” Too many people just listening in and she'd be too worried about what they'd be thinking. She'd probably ask him if they could go somewhere a little more private too.

She hoped the glance was meant to mean Vassatiere wanted to know if she had family too as she decided to answer anyway. “My twin D'vik impressed too.” She said, unable to stop the grin that spread across her face. “He's the only real family I have left.”

J'ken had thought that might be what was going to be asked, which was why he made the offer to speak in private. Rooms were very carefully selected, despite how it might appear. Candidates that already didn't get along had to be assessed and in some cases thrown together and in others kept apart. It was a balancing act in making the weyrlings work together and stopping any fights that would distress the dragons.

He had to flick through his notes to find Thrane's roommates, another bronze whose rider was fifteen and a green with a thirteen year old. Younger as he said, yes, but they weren't the excitable reds who might actually drive him out.

“They are younger yes,” J'ken agreed as he grabbed another chair so he wasn't looming, “however they are at the exact same point in their life right now.” He paused, putting his notes back on the table. “It doesn't matter whether you are twelve or twenty, right now you're weyrlings.”

This was perhaps one of the biggest things to adjust to and why the first month was still light on training, with most of it going to be ettiquette and protocol, which would incidentally help with the adjustment. “Whatever you may have been before, Theolth is what defines you now.”  He gestured at the bronze. “He will determine what you can be. It might be for you to work for things, but he has given you your place. You are a bronze rider. Getting along with your wingmates during drills will be the very least of the skills you need. Theolth will rise when he's of age to catch the Queens. If he catches Kalestath for example, will you actually care for all your riders as people? Will you interact with them and understand them? Or will you be a distant weyrleader that only interacts when he absolutely has to? Speaking as a wingrider, I can assure you that does make a difference.”

J'ken smiled, trying to take the sting out of the rebuke. “Learning to be a good leader starts now. You say you have nothing in common with them because they are younger. Talk to them and find something in common. If nothing else you are all dragon riders now. There are very few reasons to change rooms around, one night of cohabitation is not one of them. Remember the friendlier you are, the more likely they are to accommodate you.”

He stands back up, “I'll have to return in case anyone else has questions or wishes to talk to me. I would suggest you go back and talk too but I will not force you to interact, only highly recommend it.”
