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!

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.

[ 2.4.2590 ] Crafter & Holder Turmoil
« on: January 16, 2017, 11:36:21 PM »
Holder & Crafter Turmoil
2.4.2590 / 12 pm

Needless to say, things in Southern Winds Weyr are… tense. With the weyr lockdown taking effect almost immediately after the Hunter attack at the end of Month 2, there hasn’t been any contact between the weyr and the newly established Mine Hall. As such, there are people and families trapped on either side, unable to see their loved ones, unable to make use of the talents of most of Minercraft and Smithcraft, and no doubt worried about those in the Mine Hall running out of food stores.

This has put even more of a strain on relations between Weyr, Hold, and Hall. Even the riders may be experiencing inconveniences, as less Miners means less ore in the weyr, and less Smiths means fewer people capable of repairing tools, blades, or strap fasteners. Things seem to be coming to a head today, as the slowly growing grumbles from Holders and Crafters reach an all time high—likely as a result of some Crafters, desperate to see their families, approaching riders with requests to visit the Mine Hall.

With the lockdown still being enforced, of course, their (albeit reasonable) requests were denied. With the Weyr Hall now packed for lunch, a heated argument has broken out between the two factions—one that’s spreading throughout those gathered for the meal and likely to involve even those who don’t want to be!

Crafters & Holders
To punish such a large percentage of the population for a Hunter attack they had no control over no doubt seems ridiculous. Tempers have been flaring already in the interactions between these groups and the riders, straining friendships, relationships, and even casual interactions. Things have been getting progressively worse since the lockdown was announced, and characters among these ranks have no doubt heard a lot of complaining and even bad-mouthing of riders all throughout Month 3.

Some are more subtle about voicing their grievances than others, meaning that the dragon riders of Southern Winds have likely been hearing an increased amount of chilliness as well, despite the fact that the lockdown is affecting them too. Things have been tense but more or less civil—until now. However, the heavy losses Jungle Wing suffered during the last Hunter attack are still fresh in everyone’s mind, so those bonded to dragons may see their grumbling as ungratefulness and selfishness.

The responses from Candidates and Weyrlings are probably going to be a bit more in the grey area than those of the other groups in the weyr. In the case of the former, they will likely feel pulled between the two worlds they’re stepping between, and those with Crafter or Holder families may even be experiencing pressure to drop out of Candidacy as everyone is pushed to take a side. Weyrlings, on the other hand, will probably fall on the side of the riders—which may distance them from their friends still among the Candidates.

For those of you who have been itching to get your characters into a fight, now’s your chance. :para: We know there are some riders not likely to take this sort of abuse in silence, as well as non-riders with no problems speaking their minds—and we’re perfectly willing to respond with NPCs on either side as the situation dictates. How this event ends will be influenced by the actions of the characters who speak up, either to keep the peace or incite more of the Holder and Crafters’ anger. :excited:

As per usual, you may either respond to the IC thread, respond OOCly here with what your character is doing at the event, or check in with them if they won’t be attending.

M'dak will not be participating, he absolutely loathes the idea that people have to resort to physical violence to "fix" things.

Inanna is in the Creche and therefore unaware for this event

Paylae will be observing, but since she has no family to speak of and no ties to either side, will not be getting involved unless approached.

W'um is not a lunch

Fisk will step in if he feels he needs to.

Y'tol will be sitting with his wing and probably won't be able to keep his mouth shut

R'sin as always will be at the table where the Jungle riders sit. I'm fairly certain the group of Holders and Crafters did not approach Jungle with their request. Nevertheless, with the commotion he will be up and standing near his Wing, making sure no one takes a cheap shot at his riders. He, however, will not be trying to difuse the situation at all because fuck them, he's tired of playing peacekeeper and being politically correct. He's tired of catering to whining Holders and Crafters who aren't out in the jungle every day risking their lives. He's tired of hearing everything is the rider's fault no matter what they do. So please, if there is a Crafter or Holder out there that would like to voice their anger to him...

Colvin will be there and as per usual, likely right in the thick of things. Especially since his father is probably in the main group of Holders causing trouble. Not that his family has anyone any where near the Miner Hall, but it's a chance to blame the riders for something. He will of course, likely be unable to repress sarcastic remarks to both sides of people yelling at each other. Hopefully, everyone will be too involved in arguing to notice and he will make it out of lunch time without getting punched.

Karou will be there and not at all pleased at the fight. She'll simultaneously be wishing all the yelling would stop and wanting to jump in to support the riders! But her Holder family... but, but, she's a Candidate...the riders!

Marika will be there and like R'sin will be watching and waiting for someone to snap.

Oarlen Will be there, and will want to be siding himself with the Riders, however he'll be concerned about what the argument would mean for his family, small though it is.

Sokon Will also be in attendance, and immediately backing up any and all riders nearby, despite the crowd. The lockdown was a necessary action, however it may have affected the population and she won't hesitate to share that opinion with any Holder or Crafter that cares to say otherwise.

K'mar will probably be there to try and calm things down.

M'kale will be sitting with his Wing as usual. With R'sin and the rest of the Wing there, it will keep him from interfering. He'll be ignoring their complaints and any fights so long as his lunch isn't interrupted. That is, unless his wingmates become involved.

Callista will be with Jungle Wing and annoyed at their nerve speaking to riders in that way, but she won't get involved at such a late stage in her pregnancy.

Z'tai is in his office. So unless called, he'll likely miss the palooza.

Penderton, forever stuck in the minehall, will be there in spirit? Poor guy is so tired of fish stew.

Droissa is a neutral party, she'll be eating her lunch but likely will make a quick exit when things begin to get heated. Violence is stupid and she doesn't want to get swept up in any crossfire.

Nieve, however, will relish in the event from the sidelines. She may try to cajole some of the hotheads.

Saviavi will also stick around. Despite her holder family she's invested all of her loyalty into the riders. She isn't one to fight, but she sure can yell.

C'dus has mixed feelings. His family didn't suffer casualties but they came close to it. He knew they got lucky, so he feels like he can't be as outraged at the holders as the ones who took direct losses. Still, he'll be a silent supporter to his dragonrider kin.

Keron is at the Minehall (darn it).

Kyareena although she usually stays out of this kind of nonsense, she's mad about the people being abandoned at the minehall. Leaving people behind wasn't why they came to Southern Winds.

C'bryn is torn by her candidacy and her previous weaver status. Leaving the people out at the minehall is disgusting to her and she'll be seriously considering stepping down from candidacy.

Neriherem is conflicted given his friendship with many riders. He doesn't want to get into this fight but he'll probably step in to help if things get out of hand.

B'lye , also conflicted but will stand with the riders if it comes to a problem, not that he'll be much help in a fight.

Yaina is in the Creche doing punishment work unrelated to the event.

Narinae supports the riders and her uncle, but quietly will sit there with the other older Crechlings and avoid the whole thing as best as she can.

Larilla immediately runs to the Healer Hall to get an emergency healing kit.

Sarinea is helping to serve food and snorts quietly at any Rider that comes near.

J'hal is trying to eat his food with the other Weyrlings, but if provoked is definitely not above throwing a sucker punch at someone and ending up in a brawl because it's been too friggin' long.

Arrobella is in the kitchens but at the first sign of unrest will be at the serving hatches egging the fight on.

I fully intend to post them both in the IC thread eventually.

Ehrran - probably somewhere in the healer hall or who knows.. but not having any of this and most likely with V'len

Tallorine - She is there, amongst the Jungle Riders backing up her fellow riders

Palissa - is at the miner hall

Ilse - right in the middle of it

V'len - With Ehrran, where ever she is.

Calladren - Would quickly make his way out of the Hall. He already got into enough heat without a massive incident like this.

U'thar - Being sympathetic to both the Riders and the Crafters, he would sit back and not get involved. He'd still be around but not participating.

T'nax - Old man is old. No fighting for him. But he IS there. In the thick of it. Trying to calm things down. ((WILL POST WITH HIM))

T'lor - He's a lover, not a fighter. He won't get involved.

Vanelwynne is keeping a low profile, because to be honest, she's pretty scared. Oriath is helping Kalestath out with any psionic pushing that she might need, but Wynne is just trying to stay clear of things. She'll get involved if she needs to.

Pythia is busy exploring and has nothing to do with any of this thankyouverymuch.

Aster needs more than 2 characters.

L'ren will be with Jungle Wing eating. He likely won't get involved unless things come to a head. He will shout some things out.

Esclamonde trusts the men in her wing to take care of things. They always do.

Isotarïne is taking a working lunch. T'lor or T'nax will probably tell her later. Or she'll hear it from the Weyrlings. Faranth help any weyrling who thinks to throw some punches.

Nalata will be affected by all of the emotions in the room and will probably internally struggle to maintain her composure so her dragon won't freak out.

Thiis will be serving in the kitchen. She'll probably make sure no extra knives escape to be used as weapons.

Velatha is eating with her family and getting increasingly uncomfortable with the things they are saying while throwing side eyes at where B'nyn is sitting, worried about him.

Posts can probably be expected from Velatha, Escla, and maybe Thiis? Not sure yet :/ But the gang's all here!

((I think I'm gonna dig up ol' Styxiss.  Wtf not. Sorry if the format is incorrect; I'm rusty af.  Just correct me if need be.))

Styxiss will be eating obviously, off to the side and on his own... and likely wondering if he was going to have to brawl with anyone.  He's not opposed to the idea, but mostly he'd like to be left alone. It should be unlikely that anyone wants to push him to fight however, as he has adopted a "go along get along" attitude, and hasn't made any enemies that he's aware of.  He doesn't give a shit about sides, but prefers to wait and see to serve his own best interests.  Twit will be with him, stealing his food as always and making a general mess of himself.

I think Sa'se is actually the type to walk into a room of shouting and chaos, widen his eyes and look around frantically, and then turn right around and leave.  Unnoticed.  So, I'm gonna go ahead and check him in, but not thread..  tad too much to catch up on this time, I think.

Kinda like this:

Androis is keeping to the kitchens. The commotion at lunch plucks all his strings and he doesn't want to be goaded into an argument or fight. That said, he's still loudly complaining to fellow workers about wanting to catch a ride to the Mine Hall, and how the riders are screwing everyone over.
