Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
4.2590 A.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!

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

Hunters
« on: January 21, 2014, 05:38:06 PM »

Contained is all the known information of these terrible beasts that both protected the island from thread and serve as a hindrance to settlement by the Pernese people.

The Basics

Feral natural evolution of a Fire lizard or the long reptaloids that hide in the rivers, though it has no need to Impress (despises human contact). It's believed that since they live in a pack, their ability to Impress is hindered by a pack mentality. They are stocky with powerful muscles and razor sharp fangs, able to digest anything they can swallow. Their skin is more often than not a dark green or brown, earth tones, so they can hunt and hide in the jungle better. They travel in packs from 3-7. They are wingless, but still lethal and ferocious. A Hunter looks much like a wingless dragon or streamlined watch wher, and their eyes shift in muted colors that do not give them away while hiding. They are roughly the size of a small Blue to Large Brown, stretching lengths of 25-35 meters.

The Hunter's primary source of food are the plentiful wherry on the island, so it is not uncommon that Jungle Wing may run into Hunters during their own hunts.

Social Organization
A pack is led by an Alpha who is smarter than the others. This Alpha will be the largest of a Pack and can coordinate their movements with some degree of strategy. An Alpha rarely joins the actual fight, vying instead to claim a position where they can view the scene and direct the pack members with their primitive ability to communicate. They do not think in terms of words and cannot nor will not try and converse with a Dragon. No one has been able to tell a male from a female since they're all the same color, but it is believed the Alpha is a female much as the Golds rule the weyrs. No one has seen young Hunters, a nest, nor their eggs.

Interaction
Hunters are not as quick as Reds can be, nor as strong as a Bronze or Black. It is, ultimately, their numbers that make them deadly. They climb effectively and jump just as well. Low flying dragons over the Jungle have been known to be taken from the sky if they were close enough to be reached from the canopy. Like Dragons and Fire Lizards, Hunters can go between but they do not do so often. More to avoid potentially life threatening wounds, which make them even harder to fight. They have the experience of going between in the thick jungle.

The few times the Hunters have attacked the Construction Site, they employ hit and run tactics. Preferring to cause as much chaos as possible while snagging meals to take back to their nest. Hunter packs have been known to band together to attack larger groups of dragon riders, especially now that the Pernese people have started construction at the mountain base.

Hunters are most active in Summer and Fall. There should always be four Dragon Riders to defend a group against a pack, but more may be required in the warmer seasons. Winter is one of the safest times, especially during storms.
