Guest Info Plot & Events

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.

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.

Rider Guide - Wingleader Desk
« on: February 07, 2014, 08:30:29 PM »
This details all the relevant information for the Riders, Wingseconds, and Wingleaders. Once dragon riders graduate from being weyrlings, they are drafted into the weyr’s various Wings. These groups typically include at least twelve dragons, though they may be made up of thirty to forty riders in well-populated turns; three fighting Wings grouped together is known as a Flight. Wingleaders are elected and approved by the Weyrleader and Senior Weyrwoman, and are most commonly Bronze riders. Wingseconds are chosen from among a Wingleader’s Wing by the Wingleader, and are usually Bronze or Brown riders.

During Threadfall, these fighting Wings work together in order to burn Thread out of the sky before it can reach the ground below. Seeing as Pern is currently experiencing an Interval, the duties of the Riders may now change to include serving as messengers or transport, guards, hunters, and fulfilling other duties and responsibilities necessary to the survival of Southern Winds. Wingleaders will regularly post the duties and tasks assigned to their Wing, or given to particular Riders who have certain talents.

Southern Winds currently has only four Wings, but we are open to adding others as more players join the forum.


Mountain Wing – W'sar of Sath
Jungle Wing – H'vier of Kadoreth
Beach Wing – M'rek of Polanth
Prairie Wing – Z'tai of Jenrath


Mountain Wing – B'lye of Uereth
Jungle Wing – L'ale of Illoth
Jungle Wing – L'nal of Skeleeth
Beach Wing – K'mar of Berynth
Beach Wing – Y'an of Klinath
Prairie Wing – K'rez of Denoth
Prairie Wing – Open/Adoptable

Wingleaders and Wingseconds are the backbone of the weyr’s hierarchical structure, and are instrumental in keeping it running smoothly. They are the ones who translate the orders of the Weyrwomen, Weyrleader, and Weyrseconds into action. As such, they are well-respected and looked up to in the weyr. Technically speaking, all Wingleaders are equally ranked in the weyr, but they may enjoy elevated social standing depending on their relationship with the more highly ranked riders.

OOC Expectations
The Wingleaders and Wingseconds are an important part of the Weyr. As such, they are usually expected at events and interacting with the riders of their Wings. We'd like the Wingleaders and Wingseconds to be active participants in the Weyr. Those positions that are currently blank may be filled by PCs as we receive applications. The following is a list of things a Wingleader, or Wingsecond, could, and may be asked, to do.
+ Post in events.
+ Post with other riders, and other Wingleaders or Wingseconds.
+ Create threads detailing tasks for riders in the Wing.
+ Post with Weyr leaders.

The Wingleaders (and, to a lesser extent, the Wingseconds), are admin guided positions. This means that there may be some events or occurrences in which the admin will ask for help or input. While we will never tell you how to play your character, some roles come with a certain activity and personality preference. For instance, we don't want a negligent Wingleader who is openly dismissive of his responsibilities. This is a position appointed by the Weyr Leaders and as such, anyone that fails to adhere to the OOC expectations will be asked to step down.
