Current Month

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.

Your Reflection...

- Pretty boring dresser. Dull colours, nothing too fancy, straight cuts, not too ugly, not too flattering.
- Hair is tamed, he spends enough time on it in the mornings because his bed hair is atrocious, he needs to suitable in public after all.
- His eyebrows are thick and bushy
- His stubble is the only thing that he lets grow out a little bit, it makes him feel a bit more manly than his pretty average frame suggests, maybe its all the thick stockiness that he dragon exudes that makes him want to look a bit tougher

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe:
M'dak thinks the whole thing is pretty horrific, but he survived with most of his family in tact. He only wishes that the mistake hadn't been made in the first place. But the past is in the past, the people who are alive now must work together in order to make Pern great again.

Response to dragon color mutations:
As he grew up around the same time as S'bok and Neisoth he felt that they were just like every other Weyrling at the time, so he is not too bothered by the mutations. Only in the fact that everyone else seems so bothered by it and its creating tension, that's what worries him. He believes that the black and red dragons should be treated as befitting their actions, not simply because of what colour they are.

Who are you...

SWIMMING - on a hot summer day, M'dak loves to go for a romp in the lake or the ocean with Dallarth
PLANS - he likes order and things to go to plan, if something doesn't then it means whoever made the plan obviously made a mistake
TRAINING - he likes order, so obviously he likes to train well and hard so that things go according to plan.

PHYSICAL FIGHTS - he just thinks they're for men who don't know how to control themselves
FAILURE - he hates to fail, he's a perfectionist, if he fails at something, even minute, he feels like he had let someone down, especially his mother, Weyrlingmaster, that was an interesting childhood
BULLIES - he just thinks they're stupid, anyone who needs to pull someone else down to put themselves higher is just an idiot
SHIRKERS - anyone who shirks their duties are simply lazy and they are a detriment to the Weyr


* HONEST : If M'dak is going to say something he's going to tell the truth, he will not lie. However, over the turns he has come to realise that there are things that people just don't want to hear, this has lead to M'dak shrugging a lot in response to a question if he believes that the truth is not going to be beneficial to him or the person he is conversing with.

* GOOD LISTENER : Despite not revealing much about himself to anyone, he is an incredibly good listener. He will sit with you for hours, nodding and smiling, as you tell him about the girl from across the Weyr bowl that you're in love with. Even if he can offer no sage wisdom, he knows that sometimes people just need an outlet for their emotions.

* LOYAL : Anyone who has done M'dak a service will know that he is loyal to his friends, family and his Weyr. Do something good for M'dak and you will have a steadfast supporter for the rest of your days. Provided that you are doing the right thing, of course.

* PHYSICAL STRENGTH : M'dak never shirked upon his chores and his duties, and as physical fitness is quite useful as a dragonrider, his muscles have been well-toned over the turns.

* SENSE OF HUMOUR: Whilst M'dak does take many aspects of his life quite seriously, he can have a laugh occasionally, and when he does his wit is quick and to the point.


* JUDGEMENTAL : Whilst M'dak will not judge without reason, he is very quick to do so, if you do something that he believes is wrong, he will probably hold that against you for a very long time, at least, until you do something to prove yourself.

* QUIET : M'dak is not very good at giving people advice, or at saying the right things at the right time, he is very content to sit and listen, and if he doesn't have anything productive to add to the conversation, he will not do so. He words are sparing and only used wisely, which sometimes would discomfort those who feel that constant communication means respect or friendship.

* CAN'T EXPRESS EMOTIONS : In addition to using his words sparingly, he barely uses any words to do with love or emotion. If he is angry, he won't say it out loud, just bristle on the inside, if he has feelings for a woman, he won't say anything, just silently pine away. He simply does not understand how to express his emotions, perhaps he needs the right person to lure him away from this steadfast breakage he has between his brain and his heart.

* CANNOT DEAL WITH FAILURE : Any time he fails, or feels like he fails, M'dak will take it very hard. If he gave someone advice and it didn't work out, he will be very down on himself, and it would take him awhile to trust himself again. Perhaps that is part of his quietness and lack of communication, if he doesn't say anything, he can't be wrong.

* SOCIALLY AWKWARD : M'dak doesn't understand the finer emotional parts in life. If someone is making advances upon him, he won't really get it. The only thing he truly can comprehend, is when someone is overtly angry at him, or when someone gives him a direct order. Any emotions other than that, he'll probably stick his big foot in the situation.

Describe Yourself:

* SUPPORTIVE: ----- If you want someone to stand by you when you need them the most, just be a friend to him and he'll always be there. He'll listen to your heartbreak and be a shoulder to cry on, even if he won't give you any advice to help you out.

* PERFECTIONIST: ----- If M'dak is going to do something, he's going to do it right. There's no way that he will take on a task and not complete it to the best of his ability and even beyond. If he cannot achieve the goal, he will either learn how, or seek out someone else to help him. 

* RESPECTFUL: ----- M'dak respects those who have earned the privilege. Weyrleaders, weyrwoman, wingleaders and anyone superior to him will receive his respect. Alongside those who have done him many a good deed in the past.

* HARD-WORKING: ----- All of M'dak will go into any endeavour he sets his mind to, along with being a perfectionist, he is simply hard working, if you give him a task he will work at it night and day until it is completed.

The Magic Touch:M'dak is a neat freak, perhaps that's part of the reason why he hasn't had a long standing Weyrmate or a child, he would struggle with his duty to his woman/child whilst wanting to maintain his structured, and clean, life.

Tell us a story...

* 2572, 0 Born in Fort Weyr

* 2575, 3 Brother Conandus born. Madak having so many older siblings, especially girls, was pleased to have a younger brother that he felt he could be a good example to. The boys grew up quite close, as well as he did with all of his other siblings, and fostered his loyalty to those closest to him and, of course, you couldn't grow up in such a big family without a sense of humour.

* 2578, 6 Sister Tallorine impresses Green Shyuth. At 6 turns even Madak understands the significance of this. Tallorine is the first sibling (that he's met) to have impressed a dragon and followed in their parents footsteps. This fosters his hope that he too will get to impress the dragons that protect Pern each and every day.

* 2578, 6 Older sister arrives with her Bronze Wher Semusk. This even confused him a little bit, he hadn't met much of Semunda and had met even less of her Watch Wher. He wondered why she bothered bonding to a bronze, but perhaps they were quite a bit different from dragons after all. This led to quite an interesting conversation with his mother, as he asked what would happen to his sister if her bronze flew a gold Wher and it became the start of his learning about dragonriders view on sexuality.

* 2579, 7 Brother Terric born. After being able to be a big brother to Conandus, Madak was sort of disappointed when the next one also turned out to be a boy. Deep down he wanted a little sister to be able to protect.

* 2583, 11 Brother J’dan impresses Bronze Brynioth. As the brother which he looked up to quite a bit, Madak realises that the only thing he wants in the world is to be able to protect Pern with a dragon companion. He would be able to be officially considered a candidate next turn, and he hoped it would be the one.

* 2584, 12 Madak officially gets searched and with his learnings as a candidate and being so involved with the Weyr work Madak has never been happier in his life.

* 2586, 14 Madak has stood for each hatching over the past 3 turns and has not impressed. However, on the sands of Imyth's hatching, he spies a girl standing across the sands from him. He falls in love immediately, she looks so awestruck at the sigh of such amazing dragons he wonders where she spent her youth. She must be younger than him, only by a couple of turns, with wide blue eyes and hair the colour of the sandy Igen beaches. However, after taking a few steps towards her, entranced by her, her eyes meet his, and she gets distracted from one of the dragonets in front of her, forgetting to move out of the way as it wobbles into her, scraping one of its sharp talons down her front, one of its wings coming up to swipe her aside and out of its way. Madak only can watch in horror as the most beautiful person he's seen in his whole life is suddenly descended upon by a horde of healers.

* 2587, 15 Moves to Southern Winds Weyr. Madak is happy to get away from the sad memories of his failed candidates turns so far. Moving to Southern Winds would be a new start for him and his family and they could stick together always.

* 2587, 15 Impressed Brown Dallarth in Oriath’s clutch on the 24.9. The happiest day of his life, after three turns of failed impressions, he believed that he might not ever impress. Standing on the hatching grounds he had a flashback to the girl with the Igen sands hair and sank to his knees in horror. When he lifted his head from his hands, his eyes connected with the multifaceted ones of Dallarth as the introduced himself to his new rider. Madak, now M'dak, would never again doubt his duty to his Weyr and to Pern.

* 2589, 17 Brother C’dus impresses Green Tiliorth. The hatching was horrific but he couldn't help but feel a little bit proud of the younger brother he has grown up with his whole life.

Madak's eyes washed over the eggs rocking on the sands, trying to ignore the heat flushing to his ears and the shaking of his hands. I've been here so many times before, why am I still so nervous? But he knew why, it's because this was the only thing he'd ever really wanted. He wanted to be a dragonrider. Like his mother and his father, and many of his siblings before him. And he was worried that perhaps he wasn't good enough. He had spent 3 turns on the hatching grounds of Fort Weyr and every time he had watched the eyes of the boys and girls light up around him as they cheerfully exclaimed to the crowd what their new lifemates name was. That was what he wanted.

He sighed as the first egg cracked open and a blue dragonet tripped over its wings straight into the arms of a boy, whose face then brightened with a smile. Casting his gaze across the rest of the candidates he was suddenly stopped by a jolt to his heart. The most beautiful woman, girl, he had ever seen stood on the opposite side of the hatching grounds. The thrumming of the dragons around him seemed to match the thrumming of his heart, which thumped to a beat he had never felt before.

Wide blue eyes sat looking terrified in a creamy white face and hair the colour of the sand of Igen flowed down her shoulders. She could only be a few turns younger than himself. He took a couple of shaky steps towards her and suddenly her gaze shot up to meet his, as if she had suddenly felt that she was being so intently watched. His breath choked him and he stuttered to a halt. Her eyes softened for only a moment, but it was a moment too long. He had distracted her.

A green dragonet cracked out of its egg in front of her, but she didn't notice her, still staring intently at Madak. The Igen-Sand-Haired girl didn't notice until the green dragon wobbled into her and raked a taloned claw down her front, the white robe she wore staining red with the same blood that billowed from the flesh Madak could see revealed through the long gash. Her mouth fell open in a silent scream, and the young dragon simply swatted her to the ground. In his horror, Madak couldn't move, his feet felt heavy, as if the hatching sands had turned into quick sand, trapping him in his spot, making sure he watched as the girls blood stained the sands below her.

Madak left the sands without a dragon that night, but with sight that would haunt his dreams for many turns to come.

General Appearance...

In Dallarth's youth he was small and fragile, the Weyr was worried that perhaps it was an issue with his egg that had left him undernourished. He was definitely not the size that a brown dragonet was supposed to be for most of the Weyrling training. However, 17 months into his growth (just before Weyrling graduation, M'dak was wondering whether or not his mother would have to delay the graduation and it would be all his fault) , Dallarth suddenly shot up and out, grew larger than all of the other browns of his clutch, a good descriptor would probably be chunky, he's barrel chested and has very thick limbs and neck. He would definitely not be a dragon considered to be lithe or beautiful like the Golds or Bronzes, but tough and admittedly quite scary to those who have not had the pleasure to speak to him.


Mind Voice: Very low and reverberating, calming those whom he speaks to, however it is often heard speaking in a childish voice towards those little creatures, human and beast alike that Dallarth gets along with.

LITTLE PEOPLE - children, but he likes to refer to them as simply little people, because they're not all that different from M'dak when he's all in a huff
LITTLE ANIMALS - they're just too cute, unfortunately he has to observe from afar, because he's had way too many furbeasts die of fright seeing him

PEOPLE BEING AFRAID OF HIM - due to his size and stature many think that he is one of the scarier dragons.
RAIN - Dallarth very much loves swimming, but he hates rain when he's flying or when he wants to sun himself on the rocks and the weather just doesn't want to go his way. 


* HUMOUR : Quick, witty, will make a joke at the expense of his rider, but will never go too far

* CARING : Much like his rider he wants the best for everyone, however, unlike his rider, he is able to soothe those around him with his words, knowing just the right thing to say at the right time


* COMPASSION FOR THE YOUNG: He will always try to convince M'dak to do something if he feels sorry for something or someone, won't make good decisions. e.g. if they had to punish a little kid, he would be like "oh but he's so cute"

* CHILDISH : Something that definitely gets on M'dak's nerves is Dallarth's ability to ignore tough situations. Dallarth is a very good helper, when he wants to help. But also is stubborn enough to just ignore situations that he doesn't believe are worth his time.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #(3B0909); Text: #(B5988A)

Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Rudy is just average, not too big, not too small, just completely average sized. The only thing slightly different about him is that his light brown hide is marred by a single ring of dark red-brown around his neck. 


Mind Voice: Rudy is very quiet, he will only communicate to those other than M'dak if it is part of his orders. He's not a chatterbox, preferring to communicate emotions and pictures to M'dak instead.

Errands - When M'dak starts to ask Rudy to go on an errand, or send a message, he gets super excited, his eyes whirling and head bobbing.
Water - Much like M'dak and Dallarth he loves to spend a little time frolicking in the water on his time off
M'dak - why not? He feeds him, oils him and loves him, what else could he want?

Slovenly firelizards - Firelizards who don't do their job are useless in Rudy's mind
Chatterbox firelizards - If firelizards talk too much Rudy just gets annoyed by them and tries to convince M'dak to leave their company
