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.

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.

[ 13.10.2589 ] Dangerous Cove
« on: September 29, 2014, 07:59:30 PM »
Beach Snake Attack

13.10.2589 / 5pm

Luck does not seem to be on the survivors’ side this month; in the wake of the Hunter attack, another fit of violence has erupted at the Cove where Beach Wing and Prairie Wing are helping the Fishers. This event will serve to drive home just how dangerous the island really is, and remind residents that even having a dragon is no guarantee of safety against the Snakes.  Should you wish to join in the action, post in the thread. We will be observing Mauling Permissions for this thread and, should you join it, you are allowing us to endanger your character.

It’s unlikely that the Fishers were anticipating a Snake attack since they usually keep to the warmer depths during the chillier winter months. Bear in mind that the “Snakes” are long, anywhere from 10-25 meters, with 3 pairs of short, powerful legs that drive them out of the water in bursts of striking speed and a tail that flattens to the remnant of a fin to help them swim.  They have the same wedge-shaped heads like most of the reptiles on Pern, but with thick muscle to help them seize prey that was, up until the humans arrived, primarily Hunters. They can both constrict with their long, muscular body, or roll like modern day crocodiles to tear chunks off their prey. Drowning is one of the many ways the beach snakes kill their prey. The worst is their paralytic bite that seizes the nervous system. This bite can bring down even a Gold dragon if left untreated.

Beach Snakes are clumsy on land, and will typically return to the depths for another surprise attack if their prey escapes. They do not have the ability to go Between.

The presence, and likely quick, response of Beach and Prairie Wing will probably keep the attack from being worse than it might otherwise have been. It’s unlikely that Jungle Wing will be called from their drilling, and most Mountain riders will be outside the weyr.

Most non-riders on the beach will be Fishers or Smiths, with a small smattering of Candidates and weyrfolk. Most will likely retreat up toward the Bowl since the Snakes do not venture very far onto land.

IC Thread


Checked In

Per the norm, you do not need to respond to this event In Character. Feel free to simply check in as to what your character is doing either during the attack, while the weyr is kicked into action, or afterwards. We also encourage you to create your own reaction and response threads if you don't want to be a part of the attack at large.

S'lar will likely miss the chance to participate in this event, unless he's asked to assist with the wounded or something similar. It just happened too quickly, and he feels he can be of more use in the weyr. He'll be available for whatever the riders and Fishers need, and will offer his services in repairing the nets or other recovery tasks.

Sionann - if she has been assigned there to work, then she will definitely try to help out with the injuryed etc. without of course becoming one of their number!

Nalata - I'm not sure she would be there...but she would still not want to let thing lie and would be involved with the clean up etc. that follows in making things work and come back to some sort of sanity.

Vorianna - will assist the healers as and when they are called.

Evesa and Seriath are in the thick of it.

Iradin will be trying to calm the wing down and get things under control, and Leoth will be kicking snake ass to hopefully save his littler wingmates.

Inviditar - At the construction site.
Eirsymine - somewhere not at the beach
Awryna - Working at the construction site.
Rhalorin - Also has no reason to be at the beach.
