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.

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.

[ 28.8.2589] First Coordinated Hunter Attack
« on: June 02, 2014, 05:00:02 AM »

28.8.2589 / 9 AM

Hunters have attacked the Construction Site.
A lot of the details are listed in the event thread, but you know we do like to summarize and clarify here. No riders or holders knew or saw anything that would've led them to believe this attack was coming. In fact, I'm sure most believed the incoming rain would ensure their safety. So this attack was very much a surprise. Additionally, unfortunately, neither Iradin or M'rek's group arrived in time to be of any help. Or even see the Hunters attack.

Also, just as a reminder, Beach and Jungle have had their co-drills. But there was simply no way to prepare for this tactic since they've never seen it before.

The whole incident was quick, efficient, and brutal.

The following were injured. Feel free to comment and add your own characters, should you like. Only those guarding the site or those working there can be on this list. So only Miners, Smiths, Farmers or drudges for the Crafters/holders, and only those of Beach Wing for the Riders.
    Niema // Vorloruth has her belly cut open. Life threatening. Niema's left shoulder is dislocated, her face and body bruised.
    S'bel // Rilraneth's wing has been severely injured. Possibly permanently. S'bel's left leg is shattered. Bruised and battered.
    S'lar // Aelsanth is scratched up, primarily along his back and haunches, but the real damage has been done to S'lar. The man took a trip in the Hunter's mouth - internal bleeding, broken ribs, concussion. Life threatening. Not sure if he'll survive.
    Catari // Catsk was stepped on by one of the green-sized Hunters. His lower spine is ruined, leading to paralysis. He will need to be put down, if he doesn't die at the site. Catari has a major skull fracture and is unconscious. She won't remember the event nor be awake when Catsk dies.
    Evesa // Seriath has deep gouges on her chest, but will live. Evesa is stunned, with a minor concussion.
    Sh'lon // Kitath got badly shredded in the attack, and has a punctured lung, broken foreleg and tattered wing. Sh'lon is concussed and has a bad cut on his arm from falling on some equipment.

Feel free to comment as to what's going on with your character during this event, or if they'll be in another thread. Otherwise, standard event participation practice applies. If you miss 5 events in a row, your account will be deemed inactive. If you are posting elsewhere but skipping the events, remember : we do not require IC participation. Simply post here under your Player account and let us know what's going on with your character.

Catari//Catsk: They were working at the site when the attack happened. Catari has a major skull fracture and is unconscious. Will not remember the event or be awake when Catsk dies. Catsk, in an attempt to defend his handler from one of the green-sized Hunters, was stepped on. His lower spine is ruined, leading to paralysis. He will need to be put down, if he doesn't die at the site. Will either post in thread or make separate thread.

Evesa//Seriath: They were in S'lar's group, circling overhead. When the attack happened, they dove down to help a wingmate (S'bel, maybe?) and engaged with a blue-sized Hunter. Evesa is stunned, with a minor concussion, from being smacked in the head by Seriath's neck. Seriath has deep gauges in her chest, but will live. They will be trying to help the others in the main thread, probably.

Iradin//Leoth: Iradin is eerily unfazed by the attack. She is upset, yes, that her family is hurt, and that she and Leoth were not there to help. But she will be showing no reaction whatsoever. Leoth is angry, very angry, that they did not arrive in time. He will try and comfort the wounded with his rider, in the main thread, most likely.

F'lan//Rakanth: They were not there, naturally. But when they find out, F'lan is going to have huge second-guessing about wanting to be in Jungle Wing. Even Rakanth is disturbed.

T'hir & T'nan are uninvolved as they aren't in beach wing but are likely as horrified as the rest of the weyr is. Since T'hir knows a few of the victims it's likely he'll be haunting the Healer Hall for awhile.

A'sier is currently away from the Weyr, exploring the remains of Paradise River. He will likely get the news when he returns. He doesn't know any of the riders involved very well so would be surprised and angry, but not emotionally devastated; S'lar's condition would concern him most.

S'bok is likely the most effected (and this being S'bok, that means he's public pissed and very privately worried). He'll be trying to figure out how to handle this new development and what sort of tactics the Riders need to use to combat it. Likely to demand construction hold back to the mining tunnels until a plan's formed.

S'lar isn't really having much of any reaction just yet, considering he's just been bitch-slapped to the edge of the Underworld. BUT, once he wakes up he's going to freak out a bit. He'll be happy that the riders survived and upset that the Holders didn't. More concerned about the others than himself, he'll probably test the patience of whatever Healer is in charge of his recovery with his stubborn desire to push himself back to his feet and go back to work.

Kayden - devastated that there was another attack on Riders. They seem to be falling so quickly. They need to be gaining more Riders, not losing more! Frustrates her that she is no closer to Impressing, but reminds her why she wanted to Impress, and so she will do whatever it takes to make it back to the Sands. In the mean time, she may *try* to ask O'sir's permission to help in Healer Hall for her chores. If not, she can go in the couple hours before bed so she at least feels useful.

D'von || Jabyth - He could have and should have been there to help! Being so close to graduation, him and Jabyth and yearning to help out in some way. He needed to protect their home. If they attack there, how long until they attack the Weyr with even more people he knew and cared about?

Toranyin || Catrth - She will be volunteering to help bring people and supplies back to the Weyr, where they belong, if that is the route they chose to take. Part of her is screaming "I told you!", while the rest of her is just going to focus on saving who and what they can. She will wait to share the "I told you's" to when the immediate threat is over and they have a new meeting for what they should do next. Surely they will give up on this ridiculous plan for a new Hold after that event?

Zelryon - He will be a busy bee in Healer Hall. Since they never fully regained their staff and are still rebuilding their numbers since the Pass, even he, a Senior Apprentice, will have his skills tried in order to help as many of the sick and injured as possible. He is willing to thread in Healer Hall with anyone who wishes to play their injured character.

Pryndel - Being just a Harper, she was not involved in the attack, nor does she have the skills that are needed to help in Healer Hall. She will offer the extra set of hands to them though, to gather supplies or anything they need in order to help. She can also sing songs, or read stories to those recovering to distract them from the boredom that is  their life for a little while. She will also work on writing a story or song about the events she can gather from any of the recovering Holders or Riders. There is surely a lesson in the event that needs to be shared.

Daesilena || Lycaonth - Daesilena is extremely upset about this especially with what happened last month. Lycaonth is upset that Dae's upset and wished he could have been there to help. They both will be going to help out wherever they are needed.

Sauri - This event actually makes her impatient, she wants to at least try to help but without a Dragon there's not much she can do.

K'mar is...trying not to panic and hold himself together at the sight of Niema and Vorloruth. He's going to be obsessively protective of them from the moment he finds her until they finally heal at the Healer Hall. He's not allowing the idea of Vorloruth and therefore Niema not making it. So all of his efforts are going to be focused on them.

Nalata is going to assist in the Healer Hall since she was an apprentice healer before she was Searched. She's going to help in any way she can.

Callista is horrified that more dragon riders were lost (she doesn't care too much about the holders or crafters). She may end up going to the Healer Hall to help move supplies or be a gopher until things settle down.

M'kale is pissed at the hunters. I don't think he'll be visiting the Healer Hall though and will just be plotting better ways to kill the hunters. He won't say this aloud, but he also thinks this reaffirms his belief that no one should have started this construction yet anyway.

Eimerra & Imyth - Eimerra was completely floored by the news. Not only is she devastated as such a monumental loss of life, but she also feels partly responsible for the construction going ahead. It was her support for the idea that likely helped persuade Halirina to let it go ahead. Imyth is very, VERY angry, and is just about ready to force herself on Jungle wing to go help teach those sons of bitches a lesson on messing with her friends. Once she's recovered enough to function clearly Eimerra will likely be straight down to the healer hall to help in any way she can. She was an apprentice healer once upon a time so maybe she could help with stitching up wounds? If she can get over the blood that is... maybe she'd be better just fetching and carrying.

Sh'lon & Kitath - Kitath got badly shredded in the attack, and has a punctured lung, broken foreleg and tattered wing. Her breathing os consequently rather rattly, so it's obvious at least that she's alive. That and she's screaming Shea's name very loudly and for once uncaring of whom overhears, cause he got knocked out cold by a swipe from one of the smaller hunter's tails, a little way away from her. He is thus concussed and has a bad cut on his arm from falling on some equipment.

J'hal & Lesserath - J'hal is pretending that he doesn't care, but in reality he is a bit shaken. That... that's what he signed up for when he Impressed Lesserath? He can only hope that Lesserath's predicted size will help save them.

Shenzani & Carezth - Shenzi is openly shaken up. She knew several of the holders that were taken by the hunters, innocent people looking to make a home for themselves... certainly undeserving of a death that horrid. She will be helping in the healer hall where she can too, most likely, if the Weyrlings are allowed to.

M'rek is devastated. He feels as though he failed to keep his Wing -- and the Crafters and Holders -- safe. He's going to be an emotional wreck for a while, and also running himself into the ground to see to the needs of those injured and help clean up after it. He'll be showing up on the scene shortly to help organize the uninjured dragon riders to evacuate those who cannot move on their own.

S'bel is out of his mind with his own pain and Rilraneth's -- and is panicking since he's terrified that his dragon is going to go between. I'll be sticking him in the thread momentarily. A Hunter slammed into the side of his dragon, crushing his left leg against Rilraneth's neck, before it bit at his neck and the joint where his left wing meets his shoulder. S'bel won't be able to walk for quite a while (and maybe not properly for forever), and it's unclear whether or not Rilraneth will be able to fly again. (Which means there's going to need to be a giant dragon stretcher for some others to carry him to the Weyr Bowl).

Finnmaghaine was in M'rek's squad, so she's uninjured. She's... angry and rather in shock, but will be doing her best to help her Wingmates and the others still on the ground. Likely making trips to evacuate them back to the weyr.

O'sir is shaken, and grieving for his ex-Wingmates -- he may even visit them in the Healer Hall. At the very least, he will essentially be dumping all his Candidates in the Hall to help the Healers.

L'nal would never say so aloud, but he thinks this was bound to happen since Beach Wing is inexperienced. He's probably going to remain silent about it since Beach was respectful of the loss of S'tas and their riders as well.

L'del isn't in the weyr at the time, so it's unlikely he'll hear about it until later. He thinks the loss of life is regrettable, but believes this was to be expected when the non-riders pus for a Hold.

A'lori is shaken and rather afraid. He didn't think being a dragon rider was still so dangerous, and he's afraid of what it might mean for him and Queriluth.

Erieen is going to be uncharacteristically clinging to C'ace, since the man has a broken ankle. (Sanctified hasn't posted as such yet, but we discussed his injuries OOCly. :3 )

Tyldas is just stunned. None of them could have expected this kind of attack, and he's afraid that it means the Hold will be put off indefinitely. Privately, he's not even sure anymore if those who would support that idea are wrong.

T'ghen is rather detached from the situation. He sees it as an interesting historical event and little else. He doesn't seem to recognize or care that actual people died.

Niphredon is going to have a damn field day. This is the most excitement he's had as a medic since Thread stopped falling.

Tianaice will be horrified to learn about it, and worry over her father. She'll pester the Creche workers, or just sneak away, to go see him.

Ishanae || Lelath - Ishanae would be shocked and worried, and rather paralyzed with uncertainty of what she should do. Lelath is in a much more reasonable state of mind than her rider, but not by much. Once other riders start doing stuff they'll start copying them if they're not ordered to do something else.

Carayia // Vesith: Carayia is being.. well, Carayia. Outwardly, she is a bit unfazed and as introverted as usual, but inwardly, she worries for Vesith and is making the conscious effort to be as strong as the pair can so they can protect the people as best they can.

A'tor : He is steeling himself with becoming a rider again. He was back into the mindset of a crafter and holder, but with the news of his candidacy again, he is gung ho for it. O'sir will have a hell of a time finding him for chores cause he will already be at the Healer Hall.

Kerenya: She found herself in the middle of a gale with injured (and scratched) holders being brought in by riders, gouged riders and their dragons, and just chaos. She is just trying to stay afloat with the orders of medicine and bandages coming in. (Possible post later)

T'veck will be instantly angered by the fact that he has no really useful way to help in this crisis. Will see the first of his explosive out bursts as result of having been banned from the Smith Hall (his normal means of letting his emotions out)

Margana was helping at the site planting in the fields. She is currently unconscious in the Healer Hall. She has a concussion and a broken leg. She was not directly attacked, but a Hunter had thrown another Holder into her. Her broken leg is the same leg that was broken as a child. As a result, she will have a permanent limp and her leg will always cause her pain. She will have some short term memory problems from the concussion, but she will view riders with more respect after this.

R'eso was at the Weyr. Furious he was unable to help  he views this as motivation to work harder and become the best rider he can be. The helpless feeling is the same feeling he had when his wife and child died. If only he had Impressed sooner he could have helped. R'eso feels guilty that he wasn't there to help, even though he knows there was nothing he could do.

Jaenellia will be in the Healer Hall. She's grossed out by blood, but feels it is her duty to help. She feels terrible that so many people were lost and believes the holders need to wait on the construction of the Hold. She doesn't think that the Holders are to blame, but she thinks this is a sign that they were wrong to push for a Hold. She thinks the Weyr is being stretched too thin and needs to focus on survival before expansion.

Esmyond barely had to be told before he was headed to the healer hall to be put to use any way he could be. He's worried about the injured, and frustrated with the fact he can't do much to be of any help.

Osaiyes was also quick to join up with the group sent by O'sir. He would have gone no matter what. With his prior training as an apprentice healer he jumps in anywhere he can be helpful.

ooc|| As I was not active on the site during attack, I hope my following responses will fit in with everything.  Let me know if I need to edit.

T'yod was back at the Weyr due to a self-sustained (minor) injury thanks to the fact he had tried to help a miner the prior day with some work that he obviously did not know how to do.  It was meant to be a temporary break, and he planned to rejoin the wing the following day.  When word came of the incident it took a lot of effort to sort out what had happened, and T'yod feels that he let down his unit by not being there.  He has, however, seen the wounds of his fellow wingmates and he feels like he has been slapped in the face with the reality of their situation.  Pern obviously has no plans on letting them even pretend they can rebuild their old lives.

Iseult is secretly relieved by the attack.  Finally the holders will have to see sense and the Weyr will have an excuse to withdraw their support.  She thinks there is justice in that the holders were taken and the dragonriders who helped the holders left to their wounds.  She blames the holders and crafters for putting the dragon riders in harm.  She is using this event to try and scare Arianr into staying at the Weyr.

Arianr is deeply shaken by the news of the events, especially that the... monsters came and dragged holders away.  She knew some of those who were dragged away (distantly), as many of the crafters have gotten to know each other of late.  She had been working of late to get more actively involved and was only not at the site because they had no need of a weaver there.  She is haunted by the images of those who have returned.  However, she thinks that construction should continue.  If they want to survive, they have to claim the island from the hunters.  Of course, she is still shaken by the events.

Sebek was not at the site on this particular day, attending to the fields of the Weyr.  He feels he has let down the holders there and thinks he might have been able to at least save some if he and Sebisk had been there.  Sebisk might not be the size of a dragon, but she would've been something to help the hold folk who had nothing to defend themselves with.  Secretly he is relieved that he, especially Sebisk, was not there - but this only furthers his guilt at not being present as he feels like he is happy others died in his place.
