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!

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.

Couple Name Generator is a handly little tool I've used to combine parent names to help with the baby-naming process.  :happy:

This link is a pretty comprehensive list of people who identify with the non-binary genders, for people looking to play a character who also identifies as such.

*Note: It's considered etiquette on several RP sites I've found that if you choose to use an nb person as a face claim, you shouldn't make the character of a gender different to what they identify with. If you don't find anyone on this list that identifies with what you'd like, or just no one who really speaks to you, it's considered better by most to use a cis person for an nb character instead of using the wrong identity for nb folks.

Have fun <3

One of my tactics when making a new character is to use personality quizzes because though it's often hard to think of specific traits or descriptive words, a lot of the time people have an idea of how their character will react to things and such before the app is even done.

Myers-Briggs is a favorite and the results are super descriptive and take into account relationships in a work setting, friendships, families, and romantic relationships

The other "personality" test I like is actually based on the Golden Compass series. xD It's a daemon test and at the end you get a brief description and a list of three or four animal forms for your daemon. What's cool is there is a whole site of super in depth analysis for most of the animals that include base traits, positive and negative, and even more complex traits that are a result of a combination of the more basic ones.

Yafnag "Yet Another Fantasy NAme Generator"

I didn't actually find it myself. Someone else found it and I've used it a couple of times... Inki told me I should share though so I am.

It's how I got all the V names for Vickmarra's Siblings xD

Rather useful in my humble opinion.
