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.

this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

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.

[ 13.5.2590 ] Land Preparations

Land Preparations
13.5.2590 // 8 am
Unbeknownst to almost everyone in the Weyr, the Masters of various Crafts—and the Senior Journeymen from those currently Hall-less—have been working on a project to improve the availability of resources for Southern Winds. Their plan has been approved by Senior Weyrwoman Halirina, and today is the day that it is both put into motion and revealed to the rest of the Pernese.

It has likely not gone unnoticed that the four fields between Beast Craft’s makeshift Hall and that of the Fishers has gone unplanted this spring—and those in Farm, Beast, and Fisher Craft would know in particular that the soil was being prepared for something different. There’s also been a new plant added to the list of those that capable Jungle Riders are being asked to bring back to the Weyr. It’s a plant that will no doubt be a familiar sight to them, since it grows thick and plentiful in the jungle on Fort Island.


With permission from the Weyrleadership, the Masters and Senior Journeymen of almost every Craft have organized today to prepare the fields and plant the stockpile of shoots they’ve collected. Since they’re aiming to get the bulk of the work done in one day, a major portion of the weyr has been mobilized to lend help to the Farmers to make this possible.

What does this mean?
In addition to the work, the leaders of Southern Winds’ Crafthalls are revealing to the public just why they’re planting this in the Bowl, given that previously it’s been assumed to be little more than an opportunistic weed in the jungle. But the Weaver, Fisher, Healer, and Smith Halls in particular have been experimenting with the material, and their findings are promising. The bamboo grows fast—up to almost a meter in the span of a day if watered properly—and can be used for textiles, a light but sturdy wood, and the young shoots can even be cooked and eaten. This will allow the Weyr a greater access to wood—thus making them more able to make tools, furniture, and other items—without the riders needing to risk themselves while trees are cleared from the jungle. The increased access to textiles will mean more material for the Weavers and more bandages for the Healers, not to mention its application for splints, stretchers, cots... The Harpers are even hopeful that the woody stalks, if handled properly, will be usable for making instruments—and much more importantly, paper.

Nearly every apprentice from nearly every Hall has been excused from classes and work for the day—beyond the Fishers who are currently working with Beach Wing as normal. Instead, they’re being directed by their Masters and Senior Journeymen to help the Farmers. The rest of the Halls are operating on a skeleton crew for the day since their apprentices have been co-opted for the work.

Holders & Weyrfolk
Those who are still in the weyr, and may have time in their schedules or be excused by their superiors, are more than welcome to help as well. They will be answering to the Weyr’s Steward and the Farmers.

Like the Crafthall apprentices, all the Candidates have been excused from their normal routine for the day as well, and have been directed by the Candidate Master to aid in preparing and planting the fields.

Riders & Weyrlings
These are the only groups for which the schedules haven’t changed for the day, though all will no doubt be curious to see the weyr mobilized in such a way, as well as the potential results of this endeavor.

BAMBOO!  :shock: *why did I never think of that before, we literally just have a conversation about what the farmers actually planted*

Fisk, M'dak, Inanna, Y'tol, W'um, Iralye, B'ron, Z'ryr remain doing their normal duties today, I may post them if the opportunity arises for them to be curious but not actively participate.

Elrost, Ysveta will be helping! Ysveta due to her candidate duties, and Elrost will be more than happy to help out because USEFUL.

Tresrissa, Paylae aren't even there, they're at the minehall, but I wouldn't see them caring if they were at the Weyr anyways.

Droissa and Saviavi report bright and early to help. They're both excited to hear the news and are looking forward to seeing the weyr expand its capabilities. Saviavi doesn't even seem to mind all of the dirt and grit.

Nieve has been assigned to help, too. She is less than pleased about the labor, but is glad to be able to spend a day outside. She might try to sabotage things a little, but her spirit isn't really in it. This bamboo sounds like something too beneficial to mess with.

C'dus wishes he could help but understands that lessons are more important for him and Tilioth. He may volunteer some of his down time to assisting if its still needed, but his training comes first.

Nealros and Bekareni remain in the minehall. Nealros knows Rossk could help with the farming but he's reluctant to have the Brown flown up and out of the hall to the fields. Besides, he has a hangover to sleep off. Beka is, of course, of too delicate a constitution for hard physical labor.

Penderton will try to find a ride out, however will be unsuccessful. He's an apprentice, yes, but he's more needed at the site of the wall where construction slowly continues.

So all my characters will be there except for B'lye and Nishi, who are both so excited just because everyone else is excited.

So, C'bryn, Kyareena (who is the most excited), Neriherem and Tiynnalacia are all there.
B'lye and Nishi are on their regular schedules.
And Keron is still at the minehall...

Oarlen Is gonna be doing everything he can to help out. So long as he gets a bath, afterwords, he's alright getting a little dirty.

Sokon is curious, however she's a weyrling so she's doing weyrling things

Nycolus is at the minehall and will not be letting Nycolussk help. He trusts his wher too much in sensing hunters to want him to be away from the minehall.

K'zaya is doing rider things.

X'kis will lend a hand only if his primary duties are taken care of.

Tayvelle and Tavlesk are gonna be in the thick of it, helping

J'thir has been wondering why he's been collecting bamboo from the jungle, but will continue doing rider stuff and not getting involved in the planting.

J'hal is doing Weyrling stuff and probably being his usual grumpy self.

Arrobella is at the minehall filling herself and Arrobesk with self importance on being a part of the early hunter detection unit, yo.

L'ren, Esclamonde, and I'ryn all think that this is a good thing, very useful for the weyr. L'ren and Esclamonde think that this is how the crafters should help the weyr, not with riots.

Isotarïne will try and keep her weyrlings on task.

Nalata thinks it's great and wishes she could help her former craft.

Thiis is stuck doing more chores. She likes cooking plants, not planting them.

Notkerric is at the Hall with his family and therefore doesn't have to take part in the planting.

Karou and Colvin will both be there helping out to various extents.

Karou will likely be super excited since bamboo means potentially more paper to draw on, wood for brushes, and all kinds of fun things! Ta-da! Look what I did!

Cole, while also excited about the possibilities, needlesmusic instruments, will be his normal apathetic self, pretending to play it off as just another day and avoiding as much of the work as possible He'll float from pretty girl to pretty girl flirting and being his normal adorable self.

Marika will be in normal training but will likely swing by the area before lunch, dreaming about more wood to make new arrows with:

R'sin and Y'vis will be in normal drills in the morning though once the Wing heads out for hunting, R'sin will come by and see the progress. After all, Jungle Riders were the ones out there risking their lives to get this bamboo all like:

Aldrekayn will be the only one participating, only because it will make his sister happy. Z'tai will stop by during lunch to see the progress (not ICly).

The rest of my herd (K'mar, Callista, M'kale, Z'tai, Phaedralena, N'iko) will be following their usual schedule, though they all see this progress as a positive (surprisingly, that even includes M'kale).

Tichroan was probably pretty smug about this, because I'm betting he knew in advance, at least a little, because of the necessity of having a sufficient number of functionally-useful farming and planting implements (shovels, rakes, pointy sticks to stab holes into the ground, etc).

He would have had a setup along the edge between the fields, as close to the center of everything as he could get without being in the way of the actual planting (or the pathway), so that he could sharpen shovel/spade blades on the fly, as needed, throughout the day.

Chances are pretty good that he let loose with the occasional creative insult, too, whenever someone showed up with a tool that was dinged or damaged instead of just dulled -- something like "wtf were you doing, trying to expand a cave wall with this?" in a sharp tone of 'you idiot'. (Except probably more creative than that.)

A'tor will be doing his normal chores and will see if he can stay out of the way of everyone else.

D'zel will be doing business as usual. If the leadership needs additional help, he will task his older weyrlings as needed.
