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.

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.

[ 16.4.2590 ] Wall Construction Begins
« on: February 20, 2017, 12:41:53 PM »
Wall Construction Begins
16.4.2590 / 12 pm

During lunch at the Mine Hall, Craftmaster Castivill holds an informal meeting to discuss the options open to those living there now that the dragon riders are no longer willing to guard them for construction. He posits that they don’t need the riders to get things done. Now that they know the whers can provide advanced warning before the Hunters arrive, he proposes that they begin building a wall around their cleared land with all of the otherwise useless rocks and debris they’ve collected in the course of hollowing out the Hall and the beginning of the Hold.

Understandably, opinions on this idea are mixed. But in the aftermath of the Weyr Lockdown, the riot in the Weyr Hall, and the continually growing tensions between the factions of Southern Winds, more people are willing to test this theory than not. Particularly as more and more Holders and Crafters want to move to the Hall, it’s to their benefit to make the Hall and future Hold more livable and independent.

Castivill makes it clear that only those willing to take the risk should volunteer—and those with whers will be prioritized over those without. Ideally, their whers will give advanced warning so that people can retreat inside the Mine Hall’s sturdy doors before disaster can strike. He’s made it clear that wher handlers are not intended nor desired to fight the Hunters, only act as an alert system.

In particular, he’s seeking ex-Peacekeepers who, dissatisfied with their loss of station and previous occupation, are willing to guard the construction site as well as participate in the building. Having met with Lord Holder Maeron since the reopening of travel between Weyr and Hall, he’s also asking for nominations of former Quadrant commanders to be considered for the position of Head Peacekeeper. The position will be appointed in the coming months, but for now those willing to volunteer for this task will be organized under Craftmaster Castivill as he’s overseeing the building of the wall.

Crafters & Holders
Already, there has been the first small wave of more traditionally-minded people who have completely moved out of Southern Winds Weyr to the Mine Hall. The Miners and smattering of other Crafters at the Hall were not idle for their month of isolation—instead, they actively worked on hollowing out the first residential caverns and tunnels for the future Hold. While it’s attached to the Mine Hall, and for now is little more than a secondary residential area, eventually it will bloom into a full-sized and fully functional Hold. Those who felt justified in making this move will no doubt be glad of Castivill’s announcement and eager to volunteer. Likely, some will be more eager to bond to whers so that they can be more useful to the construction team.

Undoubtedly, there will be some in the camp who are a bit warier of these proceedings; this has the potential in particular to divide the Crafters, who can range from traditional Holder mindsets to the freer outlooks of the Weyrfolk.

The riders will learn of this a few hours after the fact, when Prairie Wing arrives at the Mine Hall for their second shift of ferrying people and supplies from 2PM to 3PM. No doubt, it will be quite a surprise for them to discover people outside and actively working on setting up the beginning of what will be a huge masonry project. Riders will not be helping as their schedule does not allow for them to. Neither will any Wingleader be clearing any Riders to leave to help or participate as a Guard.

News will no doubt travel fast once the Prairie Riders are done with their afternoon shift. There are no doubt going to be people on both sides of the issue, some thinking that those at the Hall are foolish for undertaking this task without dragon rider protection, and some that are eager to make the move and help with the efforts. More traditional Holders, especially those who were involved in the riot, will no doubt jump at this chance for increased independence from the Weyr.

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.

Keron will 100% be there... obvs.

Kyareena - I guess it will depend on the Farmer Craftmaster? After all, she's only an apprentice and if they say no go then she's not going to risk losing her apprenticeship, and she can't just wander over during break time so?

C'bryn - also can't, but would like to help.

Neriherem - will be out and helping once Nerihesk is cleared for duty.

B'lye - won't be but he'll be impressed by the tenacity, and the fact that they are no longer complaining, they're just working to make it better.

M'dak, Inanna, Iralye, B'ron, Y'tol will all be back at the Weyr and will hear about it after Prairie wing comes back, but won't do anything actively, except B'ron being all "Cool, they're all gonna die. We should not save them next time."

W'um will be ferrying and will notice the wall.

Paylae will be at the Weyr and will hear whisper and decide to move to the minehall. Surely they need cooks there as well? And if they're now actively protecting themselves there, she could surely got on board with that. She will not help with the build, with no Wher, but will be there to cook and provide food and drink for the workers.

Tresrissa will not be involved heavily. There's no way her family would risk her and her wher out there after what happened to Caleah.

Fisk will be conflicted. He wants to help because why shouldn't they mine hall be able to make moves to protect themselves? But he doesn't want to disappoint Yinaya and have her leave him so... he's undecided. And the best move for undecided people is not to actively do anything.

Arrobella, like Paylae, thinks there's obviously some scope for a Cromish Pasty business to feed hungry construction workers, and will be jumping ship to the Mine Hall. Plus watching out for hunters with Arrobesk sounds like the most piss-easy of jobs in the world.

J'thir and J'hal will hear about it down the grapevine like most riders. Neither will particularly care, though J'thir will at least be a bit disapproving of the stupid Holders thinking they can get by without rider protection.

Spiffy wants to make Cromish Pasties canon now.

Droissa and Nieve aren't much affected by this. Droissa's family will likely stay weyrbound and Nieve wouldn't go near the minehall unless she was forced.

Saviavi is trying not to care about it, but she has to wonder if what's left of her Holder family will move to the hall when they're able. She'll sink herself thoroughly into her circle of dragonkin friends and put on a brave face.

C'dus's only concern, when he hears of the news, is for his Jungle Wing family. He doesn't want the riders to feel compelled to supervise for the sake of being a good community, he knows it can only end in more hurt or killed riders.

Penderton, after some internal deliberation, will volunteer as a laborer for the wall. He will use his flits as personal scouts, as he doesn't yet have a wher. He's a little scared, but he feels he owes it to his hall to be the best that he can be.

Nealros is very excited. He'll spend the next few days trying to convince his mother that he, and his wher, need to go help with construction. They are both eager for some action and he almost hopes they encounter a hunter so Nealros can finally see how Rossk pairs against the bloodthirsty creatures.

V'len is affected as he's Prairie Wing. He's a witness to the construction.

U'thar and T'veck care that the Crafters and Holders are doing things but can't do anything about it.

Calladren doesn't quite care. His sister and parents are in the Weyr.

T'nax is too busy with his Weyrlings

T'lor appreciates the efforts the Hold is putting forth, but can not be bothered to help.

Kaladesi... well.... she doesn't care. She's still reeling from the fact that a brown rider is the new Weyrsecond.

Styxiss is sort of interested and/or surprised that a wall is actually going to be built, but other than that he's just kind of "meh" about the whole thing.  He's not really affected by it and has no plans to be around.

Sa'se is a little uneasy about certain recent events that led up to this, but isn't going to go out of his way to say anything about it or be noticed if he can help it.

Oarlen Won't find out until later, but isn't going to be affected at all since his living relatives will be staying on at the weyr for reasons

Sokon, similarly won't be affected, since her family is almost entirely riders and the chance for those that wish to leave to leave should be a benefit to everybody. Reducing Weyr Tensions and giving the holders a bit of free rein. ... As far as she's concerned anyway.

K'zaya is thrilled that the holders feel confident enough to work on their own, and will be eagerly shuttling people and supplies back and forth for the hour he is permitted to do so. Anything to avoid drills help people.

Nycolus Will remain in their family cavern until such a time as they are made aware of the plans sanctioned by the lord holder. There will most likely be a family meeting, where he will argue for their move away from under the weyr leadership and back to something more familiar in the hall and future hold. However he will do everything he can to prevent his family members from actively participating in the building of the wall for fear of something happening to them. He will, of course, allow Notkerric and Tavianna to do as they please (Mother knows best, afterall) and will volunteer to act purely as a lookout, since Nycolussk had given fair warning at the other attack. The second the Bronze wher starts acting funny, he's going to drag any family member not in the hold back inside though... So don't expect him to help get your screaming child into safety.

Oh the Holders and Crafters want to take over their own protection? With a wall? Knowing Hunters jump and climb trees and shit?


Will all have heard and have various thoughts on the matter, Marika considering the logistics of the construction, the realities of doing the work with only whers and no dragons, and possible success rates. Cole will probably discuss it with anyone who cares too just cause he's interested. And he's missing Keron and hopes the guy is at least getting to blow things up. Karou is just trying to keep up with all the changes happening in her life, given that her mother is a Healer she's not too concerned about her leaving the Weyr anytime soon.

Yaina Narinae will not hear much about the news and will continue on their happy little Chrechling lives. Narinae will eventually hear it and applaud them for the effort.

Larilla is a mixture of elated and distressed. She enjoys that they are actually doing something about their situation without relying on the Weyr, but she does not think it will end very well for them.

I'drya she is glad that they are doing something for themselves but she does not think it is going to stop the dangers. But, why ruin their motivation? Crafters were inventive, maybe they discovered some secrets in the rocks. Either way, she volunteers to take extra traveling shifts for her Wing to watch what happens.

Sarinea is freakin' ecstatic. She almost jumps her family over to the Mine Hall to be done with the miserable Weyr and their awful punishments on innocent people, but decides to hold back for now. If nothing else she will stay in the Weyr to keep an eye on how things are going. She does not trust them...

L'ren and Esclamonde will sit on the sidelines and laugh as the holders get themselves killed.

I'ryn will wonder if that means he'll have increased trips to/from the Mine Hall as a larger bronze in Prairie.

Isotarïne is just glad her family isn't called to help. There's some worry for her sister, but they are adults and can handle themselves.

Nalata worries about the repercussions once weyrleadership finds out and wonders again if eyes will be on her.

Thiis doesn't care.

Velatha wonders if her parents will move to help out the Mine Hall, especially considering her falling out with them.

Notkerric will be foaming at the mouth to move to the Mine Hall once he gets word of Peacekeeper nominations from Ophyonis. He's pumped.

K'rez he will know about it, he isn't going to be happy...at all. Like no, no, and more no. That is pretty much one giant-arsed headache and then some!

Vestanna & Arlais both women think it is yet more proof of how generally stupid the Holders are but at least there might be some possibility of them no longer being the problem of the Weyr and that could well work out as being a rather great thing in the end.

Tircin supports the overall idea but he doesn't believe it was handled right. In fact, he isn't sure if it isn't the worse thing to do in the wake of the fighting that was happening so recently but as he is more interested in the Fisher Hall and being out on the water he'll keep the majority of his opinions to himself...for now.

Carayia worries this might cause some kind of escalating response. Other than that she doens't have an opinion on the matter overall.

Sionann doesn't really care, but hoped some good will come out of it all.

Murrinah – She will help if it is requested of her but other wise she will be doing her crafter chores like a good Apprentic

Albree – No doubt in the creche with all those beautiful babies hoping no one gets hurt

Ehrran – In the healer hall hoping to hell no one gets hurt and they don't end up with a healer hall full of hurt men, women, and Whers

Ilse – Will no doubt try her best to stay out of it but will help if she is asked, After all she is seamstress not a hard labor worker and is Wher-less s what good Is she really going to be.

Palissa – She Is in the miner hall and has a Wher, she will be right there in the thick of it no doubt

Eimerra – Doing what is expected of her and rooting for the holders and crafters, hoping they don't get too injured.

Tallorine – Could care less.

Yestine – Its going to be just another day for this jungle green rider as well

Unavin – She hopes they all die and perish. She thinks the world would be better with out that holder scum.

Z'tai will see it firsthand and won't be pleased by it. He's concerned they're going to get themselves killed, but refuses to disobey a direct order from the Weyrwoman to help them. He reminds his Wing that they are not to assist or stand guard if the crafters and holders choose to start construction on their own.

K'mar, Phaedralena, Callista, M'kale, and N'iko hear about it but do nothing. (Though M'kale hopes they all get eaten)

K'vish - worried more about his duties not things that don't concern him.
Sheklelu - doing her duty in Prairie Wing.
Cayalla - working on things for glass (maybe for the boat) and hanging with little sis.
T'kyll - not worried about mine hall.
Gillior - busy bee in healer hall, will be around if anyone needs a healer.
Ar'tan - drilling and will be around should they have need of him.
Brezella - keeping busy in kitchens. if she doesn't have to feed them she isn't worried about what they are doing.
