Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
1.2591 0A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every 4 or 5 OOC days. 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 Flits here, as well as whers.  There are Candidate events and classes and Crafter plots. 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.



Remember,
this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

Welcome!

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!

Registration?
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.

Regards,
Southern Winds Weyr

As most of you know, Southern Winds is a plotted Forum. We have a story we're telling and happily dragging all of your awesome characters along for the ride. Our events are listed on the side bar for the current IC month. For now, we have an OOC week between events though we're always willing to adjust if the needs or requests in the Event Pacing Poll ever change.

That being said, we're curious if anyone has any sort of event or scenario they'd like to see played out. Since we want Southern Winds to be as much your home as it is ours, we're always open to suggestions and curious if we've been missing some major plot line or type of event you'd like to see.

For now, we've been listing Flights and Runs, construction events, Weyr promotions and disasters, and Holder meetings.

While we do wish we could simply accept all suggestions, unfortunately that may not be the case. But that doesn't mean we won't consider any suggestions or figure out a way to work in plots that can become apart of our larger story.

What we are not looking for are character specific plots. That is, events should affect groups of people and not just one or two in particular. While some of our Weyr and Holder events do, this is to show the progression of the setting at Southern Winds. If it affects the Weyr at large, then give it to us! But if it's only about one or two characters, then we shall politely decline - though that doesn't negate the merit of character plots. Only that we want events that everyone, or most, can participate or react to.

That being said, let us know what you think!  :love:

I think I'd like to see a bit of Prairie/Mountain now that we've got some PCs in them. Like how we had Jungle Wing Hunts, and Beach Wing's assignments.

Other than that, maybe a bit of exploration in the old continent now that the Pass has ended? We know it's devastated and all that, but I don't think anyone's actually gone back to see if they can salvage things like metal or tools, or if there are possibly caverns that weren't touched. I'm not entirely sure how long Thread lasts once it runs out of things to devour, or what the ramifications of all that are, so I don't really know how feasible it would be, but it's a thought I had and I figured I'd post it. At the very least, there should be some metal and caves left since if I recall correctly, the reason they lived in caves was because Thread can't burrow through rock.

Who knows, maybe someone got smart towards the end and stashed things that they couldn't take with them.

Or I'm dumb and none of this makes sense. That's possible too.  :bird:

It does make sense. And since this'll be the first full IC month where all our wings are active, we'll see about adding events in for them too. Probably not the 9th month, because we already have a lot of shit going on.  :bird: But thank you for the suggestion. ^_^  Means we'll be wranging up the others that play Wingleaders to help set it up. I'm not sure they'll be EVENT threads, but we can still get something in the works with each wing.

I know that I am still new, but I really wish we had some more major events going on. Here are some event ideas I had :
 - threadfall
 - clutch failure
 - hunter attack that affects everyone
 - there is a badness, all the dragons become sleepy/ill/irate
 - a badness gets into the air/food, causing all humans who were there to become <condition>
 - a dragon/flit/candle/human sets a building on fire
 - meteor hit
 - murder mystery

What about some celebrations?
-- I mean it would be lovely to see about some positive happenings as well.
Exploration Teams/New Locations
-- Expanding the areas for folk, perhaps having the opportunity to build new areas/locations

@lionfish Since our site is set during an Interval instead of a Pass, Threadfall is something that we'll not be able to work with. But thank you for your input! We'll see if there's a way to work in your ideas in the future.

@Wren Thank you as well! We'll see about cooking up some more events that everyone will enjoy. ^_^

@lionfish

We might be able to do some past threads with Threadfall. I know I've dabbled a little with @Hart. The Hunter Attacks we have had were rather involved with everyone, or rather, the construction site. I doubt we'll be seeing Hunters in the Weyr. XD  But some manner of illness could be fun.

@Wren

Luckily, with the Turn End coming up, you'll see a celebration shortly. ^_^ Beyond that, the Mountain Wing is always finding new things and we did have a wedding. 8D Hopefully this coming Turn will be productive for the Weyr.

What if there is an expedition to clear land just outside of First Hold's construction site in the attempt to carve a few fields into the woods? This would require sentries, scouts, escorts, laborers, holders, and crafters?

For that matter, there are several things that I could think of for the construction events stuff. Like a quarry, orchards, fields for beasts, logging, etc. etc. etc. Though, I'm certain much of this has already been discussed.

@Red
Construction at the base of the Mountain is still very much within its infancy. A lot of it has to do with a lack of volunteers ( given the last attack on the construction site from the Hunters ). It struck a huge blow to moral. But there are still a lot of people, especially Maeron, who definitely wants to see the construction of a Hold complete. Or some of those that survived from the Farmer or Herd Craft Hall who want room to roam and grow things.

The other thing preventing a lot of this be the Weyrleaders themselves, who aren't too keen on allowing their Riders to be slaughtered for the Holders. :P There's a lot of drama between the Holders and Weyrfolk because of it, as you can imagine. :3 But those things are definitely in SWW's future.

I explained this in Discord, but I'll post a little more fleshed out version here for y'all to consider.

This is an event for everyone at the Mine Hall. Notkerric has been thinking since the hunter attack. A lot of people at the Hall have whers, but not all of them have the training like the keepers. Sure, they've been trained for farming, or mining, or whatever job their handler has, but with the threat of the hunters lurking outside their doors, he's starting to think outside the box.

Notkerric and the Peacekeepers want to propose an idea of training all whers at the Hall to detect hunters and give them some basic combat training against the creatures. This would be open to anyone with a wher as long as it is at least 1.5 turns old. He also wants to thank everyone for their quick response during the attack and open the floor for any questions about Peacekeeper training and this new offer of training.

I was thinking this meeting could be called to order after dinner one night as everyone is inside. The timing of this event doesn't matter much to me.

Heya lace,
So we've talked this and we think it's a great idea!

The only thing we'd want to adjust is to have it be just an offer to the general mine hall.
The miners and other crafters currently living there already have their own training regimes, so it's unlikely that they'll take them up on it. But there may be some Weyrfolk/Holder types that don't have access to that kind of experience with whers and could really benefit from it if they're fans of the Peacekeepers.

And we don't think you'd have to limit training to 1.5 turns, whers get pretty big pretty quickly. Perhaps they could offer just normal obedience training for the young ones and combat training could be limited to 1 turn or older? Or simply offer whatever would suit the wherhandler pair and what they need help with?

We were thinking that it might be more interesting for a larger amount of people if we ran the event as an impromptu lesson, which extends to a sign up. There'd be an announcement that a squad of Peacekeepers are waiting in a certain cave, to teach whatever handlers might want help with. Then, if those handlers enjoyed/thought it was beneficial, they can sign up for more lessons afterwards.

We'll schedule it in the next IC month or so.  :love:

I love that even more! (Communal thinking helps make good ideas even better!) Thanks so much for taking the time to consider this, and if y'all need/want Notkerric to start the thread over one of the NPCs just PM me with the deets.  :love:

Alright. So I have a couple of ideas should we continue to go ahead with the "Pre-SWW Events" to be played out in real time. The first, that I'm gonna call "The Gold Massacre of '81" is probably the most favourite of mine, since it personally affects a few of my characters and who doesn't want that? While the others are more a curiosity-if-there's-enough-interest thing.

  • The Gold Massacre of '81 - I'd love if the flight was played out, to be honest, and then the chaos that resulted. But I understand it may not be the easiest thing to coordinate.
  • How the Hell do so many Golds have Clutches at the same time! - I know in '76 there were 11 golds able to be clutch parents. Which means that there was most definitely overlap. It was brushed upon with Oriath and Imyth sharing the sands, but some of the tension from hatchings, touchings and otherwise would be interesting when one considers at least two golds would probably have shared the sands at the same time. I admit to throwing around the idea of a hatching in the past where there's significant overlap with older characters but that seems even less feasible so you know... Bowing to the admin's in this one too.
  • The first Hunter/Beachsnake Attack on SWW - That would have been terrifying... And more chance for death. If you're into that sort of thing <_<;
  • Moving to Fort - Not the island, but one of the refugee transitions. The mass evacuation for the remaining holds and whatnot to Fort Hold/Weyr would have been intense. You'd have riders trying to protect everyone at once, and the fear of it would have been wonderful~

    Aaand that's it for now... I don't need any of these. I would love them. But I don't need them, and of course there's always the possibility that I've royally stuffed up and misinterpreted part of the timeline. But ideas are ideas, right? And I don't mind how much you do or do not take from the proposed <3
