Current Month
8.2591 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!

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.

Canons - Wanted  - Advertise

Never again. 

There is something to be said about a common thread to all superheroes. That thread is a vow.  That breath would be about preventing the pain in another that they have felt.  That desire, act of will, has gone too far.

Lana Lang and Magneto did whatever it took to make sure that memory of the fallen was never forgotten. On October 9th, 2020 Ra's al Ghul struck LA with a Hydrogen Bomb. Among the dead is Lois Lane. It's time. To fight back. It's time to forge a new and better path. With the death of Lana Lang, Superman saw one path. On the Ides of March,  he took over the United States Government, split it with Magneto. 

You have a choice. 
1. Stand with Superman or Magneto.
2. Live within the Neutral Zones, survival first.
3. Try to save Superman.
4. Fight back.
5. Live within the Regime or Brotherhood and do nothing.

Choose wisely.  Your choice can alter human history.

Radioactive is a no word count site, that is based on Marvel/ DC comics.  Set on Earth 313, we are a completely alternative universe. The comic knowledge anyone needs is what resource sites can give you on a canon's origin. After that, the story is yours.

Avenge the fallen, may their memory guide you.

We all know what happen after the 2nd Long Interval, but what happen after the 1st? What about when all Weyrs were still active?

With hundreds of Turns free of Thread, everything has changed. New systems have been integrated with old, the Weyrs adjust to a life "free" of Thread. The Holds have prospered and spread, and Crafts have advanced, no longer hindered by the need to survive but to grow. Pern is not that of Dragons flying under Thread ridden skies. Of people stuck to a life of surviving each Fall during a Pass...Or is it? There is no Lessa to do the impossible. Or a faithful F'lar to keep to the old ways knowing Thread will return.

There is only the People of Pern. What is your story?

People of Pern is an AU Dragonriders of Pern RP. Where the events of  the past during Landing happen, but not as you remember them. Now in the present the events of the 1st Long Interval unravel. Thread has not fallen for generations, yet the 5th Pass is almost upon us! Pern has changed because of this lull, will things continue or will things change? What we also have to offer:
-: No sexuality or gender based Impression :- Due to the events of the past, our present Pern is not limited to Dragons picking one due to sexuality or gender. No, our Dragons choose those who are right for them, and nothing more.

-: Friendly Community :- We are a friendly community, both to those wise in the ways of Pern or those new to it. Have a question? Why not drop by our Cbox and have a grand time just chatting away!

-: Custom Impressions :- The Staff prides itself on customizing every Dragonet to the Candidate. This baby should fit your Candidate, and thus is made around just them! No pre-made baby, each is carefully created.

-: Open Opportunities :- There is always opportunities no matter the Rider or the average Pernese. If you have something interesting to bring to the table, please feel free to drop the Staff a note and we can see about getting others to jump in!

-: Current Events :- Summer is heating up and with it the clutch on the sands. Candidates are being brought from all walks of life, from all corners of the North. The two Queens of Benden are both showing signs that in the near future they too will be rising and adding to the next generation of Dragons.

Amongst these joyous moments it seems that the mystery surrounding High Reaches Weyr is finally to be revealed...Or is it? Benden’s Weyrleaders go to speak in secret to the Weyrleaders of High Reaches, “Reforging Connections”. Upon such meeting the Benden Weyrleaders hold a meeting of their own, “What Say You?” What will the Leaders of the Weyr decide?

** Cyenth's clutch is due to hatch June 1st! **

2539 // 24 turns
Searchrider - Blue Quorith
Physical Description:
*Tall and lean
*Dark almost black hair, dark brown eyes
*Wearing well worn leathers, but clearly still in good condition.
*Curious - He loves seeing and visiting different places. He's often wistfully thought that it's a pity he wasn't born a hundred turns earlier.
*Sarcastic - He's quick witted and any less than intelligent comments will gain a witty response, because he just can't let the moment pass by without making sure he's rubbed in that they said something rather silly.
*Hot headed - If there's something going on he'll often be the first to respond to it as he jumps without thinking and only regrets it later when his brain has had chance to catch up.
D'rak, (called Dirakal), was born in High Reaches Weyr, his mother was a cook in the caverns, his father was a brown rider. He was searched at the age of 12, but didn't impress until he was 15. As is usual he was immediately in love with the blue dragon which tripped to land face down in the sands at his feet and he couldn't quite remember why he'd even dreamed about riding a bronze. His Quorith was tagged as a search rider when he started giving D'rak hints about who to put marks on for impressing.
Searching and collecting Tithe is getting more dangerous to be sure, but this was just another routine pick up. The children that presented themselves, often refugees from the look of their clothes, were generally quick to accept a search, no doubt thinking of the tithe that was going back to the Weyr. They had a solid group gathered that Quorith liked and D'rak was looking forwards to getting back to the Weyr.
Intended Outcome:
Whatever happens, happens.

“It’s not too bad.” D’rak said as he slid down Quorith’s side. He probably spoke too soon as the world spun, and he leant into the blue hide to steady himself. “L’ok’s worse.” He protested as he was pulled away. He didn’t have the strength left to actually resist the tugging. He blinked slowly as he was pushed to sit down, a healer prodding at his arm, the voices above him mingling together. Bloodloss and missed vitals and stitching. He didn’t need to be worried though. He was going to be fine. He just needed to sleep but he’d be fine…

Quorith swung his head between the healer talking to him and D’rak. The healer would know. Healers always know. D’rak says so. The Healer says D’rak will be fine. He doesn’t need to be worried. The Healer says he just needs sleep. He can sense the heavy presence of one of the Queens at the edge of his mind, she says the same thing as the Healer. D’rak will be fine.

He absently shifts, about to move out of the way to wait for D’rak to wake up again, before realising there’s still a presence on his back. The candidate hasn’t moved yet. She’s too small, she barely weighs anything, she should eat more. He gently reaches out, not entirely sure what to do with her.

Qirelai? She doesn’t feel too injured. Should he move with her or tell her to get down? He doesn’t know. D’rak would know what to do but he’s sleeping now. Would you like to wash? He can feel the tacky drying sensation of blood on his own hide, and on his strapping. He wants to wash so maybe she will want to as well? The Healers won’t let us in right away. Or maybe they would let her in, Qirelai is small, she would fit.

Spoiler for Hidden:
I'm still up for it. Left this pretty open as Quorith is a little confused as to what to do with this candidate he's been left with.

How had she gotten herself into this mess?

She closed her eyes tightly when the dragon said they were going between, appreciative of the warning. Why exactly did she close her eyes? Qirelai had no idea, but it seemed like the right thing to do. She'd never flown adragonback before, there could be... particles... or space bugs flying around in between to get in your eyes. Besides, she couldn't see around the larger frame of the worse-off dragonrider to follow suit with the two who actually knew what they were doing.

The cold of between convinced her to definitely not open her eyes, but soon enough, the sun made her eyelids shine red again as light once again returned, and she could only stare at the vast expanse of the Weyr below her.

Unfortunately, she didn't have long to admire, as the blue dragon below her smoothly, but quickly made his descent towards the courtyard. She had just enough time to think over her next few steps, before they had landed in the bowl. The sight of the darker blue barrelling towards the ground made her heart jump to her throat, the healers rushing from the cave exit looking tiny in comparison to him.

Quickly Qire fumbled at the straps she had haphazardly thrown over all of them, letting the final knot loose just when the healers had made their way towards them. If either of the men in front of her decided to fall off the dragon instead of climbing off, at least they had a crowd of healers to break their fall.

"They both got stabbed at Nabol!" She informed the healers, tucking her knees up to her chest so that hands and arms could yank the two riders from their positions with her skinny arms and legs safely out of their way.

She felt very small now, perched on top of a dragon, seeing her hands wrapped around her knees covered in blood, the efficiency of the swarm of healers below her.

For some reason I didn't have this on my list. But this is neat... 8D so if you're both keen to keep going with this that's great! If not, all geezy. My bad for forgetting to write it down.

Spoiler for OOC:
Forgive the rustiness - I just needed to respond to this one. Also... please let me know if I took too much liberty with the beach snake!

M'lan had heard his fair share of terrifying things throughout his life, and when Corvath first started being able to kill his own prey the weyrling had suspected the sounds the black made then would be about as bone-chilling as the dragon could get. With a beach snake tearing into his hide now however, M'lan realised those noises were comparatively pleasant when compared to the hissing, almost inaudible growl Corvath was doing in response.

For a very brief moment, M'lan understood how the black dragons could strike fear into the hearts of those that weren't accustomed to them, those that had ended up on wrong end of an angry Black. Just as there were those that feared Kalestath for her aggressive protection of her clutches, there was reason to fear should a dragon like Corvath ever direct such rage at another being, dragon or human alike.

Any further musing that could be managed between the life-and death grip on the saddle-less dragon and the continued attempts at clawing the beast off himself was interrupted by the menacing elation that surged through their bond as Corvath's talons finally found purchase on the creature, the black bringing his leg down as quickly as possible in an attempt to tear him off and crush him into the cove floor as promised.

Even as he attempted to finish the snake that had attacked him, he was looking for his next target, ready to further satiate the bloodlust he felt despite his rider clinging to his back. Had the blue dragon not interrupted them with a downright perplexing image there was every possibility the two could have fast tracked themselves to the same fate the weyrling had encountered earlier.

As it was, they weren't out of danger yet, and with Corvath's curiosity piqued, M'lan was able to put the full force of his own command into the dragon's instructions. Can't take on Sharpfish and snakes boy. We need to go. The fact the Sharpfish were technically helping was something M'lan wanted to put aside for investigation later, but for now they needed to go.

We can watch- Corvath started, mental voice still holding onto the ferocity of a battle not quite done but with the taint of curiosity at the image the blue had passed on. To see the shipfish when they were hunting other creatures would be interesting at least, though the urge to join them lingered in his mind like a hunter preparing an ambush.

M'lan was having none of it, steeling his own mental voice as he reaffirmed the command. "We still have to worry about the beach snakes." He added, verbally this time, and tried to stifle the relief as Corvath shifted to comply.

Hold on. he instructed, tone somewhat more akin to his usual severity before he was attempting to get into the air. If they were lucky, the beach snakes would be too occupied with the oncoming sharpfish to take advantage of the blacks preoccupation, but the tension in M'lan's grip wasn't entirely about staying in place.

He’d gotten his fill of the eggs fairly quick. They were lovely and all, but they were just eggs. No movement and he wasn’t allowed any closer, and this crowd about him seemed too enraptured for him to strike up polite conversation. He turned and shuffled his way through, keeping a look out for more interesting enterprises.

It was easy enough to find something.

Though he wasn’t well rehearsed with names and ranks, he knew that the dark-haired girl was the youngest of the queen riders and the tension between the group around her made it easy enough to divide the political lines. Internal power struggles were always entertaining.

Not one to get directly involved, however, Gheinvrixic did a little further scouting. He wasn’t alone in watching the events unfold, and so he headed toward a small group that seemed quite invested in the goings-on. They looked older than him and their gear and knots signified some kind of dragon-y rank, something he’d have to figure out eventually. For now, though, he figured a quick wave would do the trick as far as formalities went.

“Heyo,” he said, shuffling up alongside Eldessen and her crew. He pointed his thumb over toward the general direction of Nalata and co, “Wanna give me the run-down on why there’s so many sour faces about that situation?” His smile suggested he’d be easy to let down if they didn’t want to gossip, but it also betrayed how eager he was for some good ol’ human interaction. Being the new kid was tough.

“I’m new about these dragon-parts, if you couldn’t tell,” he tapped his candidate’s knot, “but I figure it’s a good idea to figure out what’s what before I find myself in trouble, savvy?”

It takes Z’nel a moment to work through his speech patterns, he has a strange accent she’s not used to. She is pleased by his compliment towards Allieth, even if it was more a compliment towards all dragons. It is a matter of pride, at least to her, to ensure passengers have a smooth ride.

She still isn’t sure about boats though. “They look a lot smoother than you say from up in the air.” She punctuates that with a wry smile. If he says they move a lot she’ll have to take his word for it.

“I’m Z’nel, this is Allieth.” She replies to his introduction as Allieth pokes her snout against the boat.

“Careful love.”

It barely moves and Allieth makes a huffing sound before turning her head away to sneeze.

He is oiling it? Will it be growing? He talks as if it is alive.

“It’s not alive and all boats are girls love, don’t worry about it.” She says with a giggle, thankful that Allieth won’t remember this come tomorrow.

“Sorry. We’ll keep our eyes on you, no waysiding today.” She says to Grix, making sure to apologise for her side conversation. "Want a hand with that?" She asks. Otherwise they're just going to be standing round till the boat is ready to go and she doesn't like being idle.
