Guest Info Plot & Events


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.

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

Runnerbeasts

History
Runnerbeasts are the descendants of the Terran horses that the original Pernese settlers brought with them during the First and Second Crossing. The breed brought across was a mixed-breed from a variety of Terran equivalents, combined for the most effective horse for anything the colonists might need to use them for. They can act as sprinters for fast travel, (particularly helpful for carry messages for holds without drumheights), or they can be sturdy to haul wagons for the nomadic traders.

While they started off on only the northern continent, by the Second Pass there were herds of wild Runnerbeasts—smaller than their northern counterparts—running loose.

In the hillier country, Runnerbeasts (or "Runners" for short) were bred to be hardier, sturdier and muscular; in northern Holds such as Ruatha, they were refined for speed and agility.  This made the more agile animals great for distance running, and as a result they were often used not only for racing and leisure but also to carry messengers where drums where not available.

Before the destruction of the 9th Pass, runners would have been as varied, ranging in size from 15 hands in the more lean and agile runners to around 17 hands for the workhorses. They would have come in all colors from blacks to bays, greys to grullas.

9th Interval
By the founding of Southern Winds, the distinction between the more lithe and the workhorse runnerbeasts would have been blurred. Due to constant Threadfall and the starvation that followed, Runnerbeasts, like many others, fell victim to the need for food.

While they may still range in color and some slight variance in size, they for the most part resemble what would be akin to a Terran Friesian breed.
