Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
3.2591 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 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

Songs of Pern
« on: June 14, 2015, 08:12:43 AM »
This is something Alahn and I had talked about... awhile ago, but we never posted because reasons. But post about songs that remind you of Pern. Obviously not songs from the actual cd, because that's too obvious. But other sources or the like. And why

"I See Fire" - Ed Sheeran
I liked this one because of a few choice lyrics. :3 For obvious reasons, I think. But the whole fire, sky, and death thing? Totally the terrible 9th Pass.
Quote
If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night

...

Calling out father oh
Hold fast and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

And if the night is burning
I will cover my eyes
For if the dark returns
Then my brothers will die
And as the sky is falling down
It crashed into this lonely town
And with that shadow upon the ground
I hear my people screaming out

Funny you should post this because I just found a song that reminded me of Pern and added it to R'sin's playlist.

Granted not all the lyrics fit or whatever but the whole idea of the world dying, children starving, houses being destroyed, and men being no more seemed all very "catastrophe" to me. I put this in R'sin's playlist because to me it seemed like something that would resonate for him as he doesn't forgive himself for all the lives he could not save, also he doesn't forgive Ihemair for suiciding after their daughter's death and leaving him with no warning, ie the "you never said a word you didn't leave me no letter" lines

Prayer in C - Robin Schulz

Quote
Ya, you never said a word
You didn't send me no letter
Don't think I could forgive you
See, our world is slowly dying
I'm not wasting no more time
Don't think I could believe you

Ya, you never said a word
You didn't send me no letter
Don't think I could forgive you
See, our world is slowly dying
I'm not wasting no more time
Don't think I could believe you

Ya, our hands will get more wrinkled
And our hair, it will be grey
Don't think I could forgive you
And see the children are starving
And their houses were destroyed
Don't think they could forgive you

Hey, when seas will cover lands
And when men will be no more
Don't think you can forgive you
Yeah, when there'll just be silence
And when life will be over
Don't think you will forgive you

...

Ya, our hands will get more wrinkled
And our hair, it will be grey
Don't think I could forgive you
And see the children are starving
And their houses were destroyed
Don't think they could forgive you

Ey, when seas will cover lands
And when men will be no more
Don't think you can forgive you
Yeah, when there'll just be silence
And when life will be over
Don't think you will forgive you

I'd always thought that I See Fire was a good Pernese sing xD I almost made a character concept out of it on here once.

If Today Was Your Last Day- Nickleback

Quote
Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

So sue me, I like them.
This came up in my pandora and it struck me as the way Riders would have viewed their world during continuous threadfall.

'North Col' - Shearwater

I picked this song because the instrumentals have that older sound that seems like it would fit in the culture of Pern. Plus the lyrics remind me of the sadness of everyone having to abandon their home to move to the island. The last stanza in particular evoke images of Threadfall and dragons coming and going from Between for me.

Quote
Each stray reminder of your home life
is hung on the wind that pulls away from you
as the walls of the mountains in the cold light
glow red in an echo of the flares on high
in the vault of the night

In the frost on the branches and the clotheslines
a fierce little wren is singing loud and high
while his eyes, insisting on their own life,
gave legs to the lie
that there is world and time
to grow old in its light

In the last of the embers of the twilight
the gunmetal air has come alive with birds
They burst from the clouds above the snow line
and bloom in the ashes of the old black sky
and go back to the night

This made me think of what it might be like during the catastrophe, trying to get everyone safe inside, losing hope because it never seemed to end. Plus I just really like the drums in this song. They seem very Harperish. Yes, Harperish. It's a word.

Gentle Folks - Hunter Hunted

Quote
Calling all the gentle folks, with arms in the air. Time for marching two by two so throw away your cares. Survive, just try to survive. Find the luck you're standing by in hope to combat soon. Put together, embrace yourself, hold onto your festoon. Goodbye, this is the goodbye

Callin all the animals inside, callin all the animals inside. (Hey) storm on the way, we forget what it's for. So hard to be brave, don't believe anymore, don't believe anymore, don't believe (anymore)

Calling all the gentle folks with arms in the air. Keep from marching two by two and find a way to care. Survive, just try to survive. Pine for love, your kiss goodbye, you know you'll see it soon. Put together and make yourself, hold onto your festoon. Goodbye, this is the goodbye

Because it's a song called Hunters. And it's fucking magnificent.

Birdmask - Hunters

Quote
thunder roars and i will never fall asleep
when the hunter calls and i will have to hide in leaves

run for as long as you can

as you're starting to see
things differently
and the stars above
they're yours and ours

i've been sewing on a different kind of seam
when the hunter's heightened senses hear a silent scream
is it you or just another call to arms
because yonder fathers cry over their dying sons

as you're starting to speak
at a different speed
and the stars above
they're yours and ours

run for as long as you can

i've heard stories of a different kind of night
when the hunters paint their worries in the firelight
and the shadows cast are promises of better days
as the fire lasts for ages where the hunters lay

as you're starting to see
things differently
and the stars above
they're yours and ours

as you're starting to speak
at a different speed
and the night is too dark
and the light is too far

they're yours and ours

Soooo, this one here reminds me of the displaced Crafters and Holders and how they're trying to find their place again in Pern and how they don't want the riders to be the boss of them and how they don't really feel they belong in the Weyr and how all the old Halls on the main land are empty now. Like this could totally be a Harper song.

"You know we never belong
In the shadow of all our wars
Living echo and die in an empty hall"


Little Wander - The Wild

Quote
The streets are cold but I always get locked alive
And take us somewhere where the sky split up in wild
You're nobody's boss and that's on despair
Not a jury to file where the roads won't help

No way, no signs
Still we gotta cry
We are WILD

We have a reason to move
You know the wind will blow
Over your soul
And the spirit can die
Before the body gets old
You know we never belong
In the shadow of all our wars
Living echo and die in an empty hall

No way, no signs
Still we gotta cry

If anyone has Spotify, I've got a playlist of music that I made that I listen to when I write/drive/chill/try not to rage/etc. Its just shy of 24 hours long, so you can have it playing all day if you'd like. The link to the playlist is below:

https://open.spotify.com/user/1269213732/playlist/2JgflMCg8eCccbCEBfnQgj

EDIT: and though it is labeled as Celtic folk,  there is also some German folk mixed in as well.

I just found this song the other day, and, well... it makes me think of dragon riders sooooo much, particularly flying Threadfall during the awful mess that was the 9th Pass. (I like this version better than the original because it's, well... faster? XD Please ignore that the video itself is a bad AMV.)

Battlefield by SVRCINA

Quote
No time for rest
No pillow for my head
Nowhere to run from this
No way to forget

Around the shadows creep
Like friends, they cover me
Just wanna lay me down and finally
Try to get some sleep

We carry on through the storm
Tired soldiers in this war
Remember what we're fighting for

Meet me on the battlefield
Even on the darkest night
I will be your sword and shield, your camouflage
And you will be mine

Echos and the shots ring out
We may be the first to fall
Everything can stay the same or we could change it all

Meet me on the battlefield

We're standing face-to-face
With our own human race
We commit the sins again and our sons and daughters pay
Our tainted history, is playing on repeat
But we could change it if we stand up strong and take the lead

When I was younger, I was named
A generation unafraid
For heirs to come, be brave

And meet me on the battlefield
Even on the darkest night
I will be your sword and shield, your camouflage
And you will be mine

Echos and the shots ring out
We may be the first to fall
Everything can stay the same or we could change it all

I really like this song because of how it sounds, but the lyrics sorta fit too.

Will I fall by Zayde Wolf

Quote
I've been talkin' with the darkness
and listening to what she says.
And I've been touchin' all the shadows

that are hidin' in my head.

Will I fall?
Will I survive?

All I want is just a feelin'
but I'm tangled in the web.
And I keep fightin' for the reason
in the voice that pulls your head.

Will I fall?
Will I survive?

Another song that reminds me of dragon riders during the Pass, though it's really suitable for anyone that survived the catastrophe and lost people along the way.

The Parting Glass, by The High Kings
Quote
Of all the money that e'er I had,
I spent it in good company;
And all the harm I've ever done
Alas, it was to none but me.

And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall.
So fill to me the parting glass.
Good night and joy be to you all.

So fill to me the parting glass,
And drink a health whate'er befalls.
Then gently rise and softly call,
"Good night and joy be to you all."

Of all the comrades that e'er I had,
They're sorry for my going away.
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had,
They'd wish me one more day to stay.

But since it fell into my lot
That I should rise and you should not,
I'll gently rise and softly call,
"Good night and joy be to you all."

Fill to me the parting glass,
And drink a health whate'er befalls.
Then gently rise and softly call,
"Good night and joy be to you all."

But since it fell into my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
"Good night and joy be to you all"

So fill to me the parting glass,
And drink a health whate'er befalls.
Then gently rise and softly call,
"Good night and joy be to you all."

Good night and joy be to you all.

Found this song last night and I thought it was a really pretty song for Pern.

Ashes / Steve Aoki Deadpool Remix by Celine Dion

Quote
What's left to say?
These prayers ain't working anymore
Every word shot down in flames
What's left to do with these broken pieces on the floor?
I'm losing my voice calling on you

'Cause I've been shaking
I've been bending backwards till I'm broke
Watching all these dreams go up in smoke

Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?

Can you use these tears to put out the fires in my soul?
'Cause I need you here, woah

'Cause I've been shaking
I've been bending backwards till I'm broke
Watching all these dreams go up in smoke

Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?

Can beauty come out of ashes?
