Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
4.2590 A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every 4 or 5 OOC days. 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 Flits here, as well as whers.  There are Candidate events and classes and Crafter plots. A little bit of something for everyone.

See previous events here!

Welcome!

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!

Registration?
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.

Regards,
Southern Winds Weyr

Your Reflection...

Appearance: K'ran puts himself together with surprising aptitude, considering he never seems to spend any time doing the putting-together. Aside from his hair, which always seems to be in some sort of artful disarray which he's actually become rather fond of. He dresses nicely, his casual clothes and his riding leathers alike well-cared for. He has a scar, about an inch long, on the left side of his jaw from falling and cracking himself in the face with a rock when he was twelve. He tells himself it makes him look more rugged.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Having grown up in the tail end of it and losing his home to the 9th Pass, K'ran is remarkably well-adjusted to the new lifestyle of this new Weyr. His parents were never the type to try and sugar-coat the future, and he knew from a young age that things probably weren't going to end well. He's come to terms with that.

Response to dragon color mutations: K'ran is decidedly undecided. His father was a staunch traditionalist, and railed against the idea of potential dragon mutations when Neisoth was hatched. Kal was never close enough to the man to adopt his way of thinking, but he can't deny the sliver of unease that winds through his belly when he thinks about the fact that that strange little black dragon is now the Weyrleader. They are thoughts kept largely to himself, rarely ever even bringing it up with Harloth consciously.

Who are you...

Likes:
*Solitude: It's not a be-all-end-all sort of thing, but Kal definitely appreciates the moments he gets alone in his weyr. He's something of a social butterfly, but even he can get overloaded, so he tries pretty hard to set aside some time for himself every once in a while.

*Men: Kal's pretty gay. It's always been a bit of a thing in the back of his head but he knew from a pretty young age that he didn't quite swing the way his dad did. K'jor slept with men of course, but it wasn't hard to tell that he preferred the greens that had female riders. He was always in a better mood when Relnerth caught one of them over a green with a male rider.

*Children: Though the thought of his own child (potentially the plural form) makes him feel vaguely sick to his stomach, K'ran still deeply enjoys being around kids.

Dislikes:
*Water: K'ran dislikes bodies of water. It makes him nervous, and possibly one of the worst experiences of his life was the trip to Fort Island. He avoids flying over anything more than a large pond at all costs, and only at Harloth's prodding does he ever willingly go swimming. He does enjoy being clean though. Bathing isn't a problem.

*Storms: Something about them--the energy, the atmosphere, the way everything good just seems to stop--makes K'ran uneasy. It's more the noise than the rain, but he still tries to avoid going out in it unless he has to. Thunder, in particular, is not K'ran's best friend.

*Cold Weather: Not just 'oh, it's chilly outside' but the really cold stuff--conditions he might (somewhat dramatically) compare to the cold of between.

Strengths: 5+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* FOCUS : As a child Kallorahn's mother regularly commented on how well he could focus. He wasn't sure what it meant at the start but now he appreciates his ability to settle down and get something done when he needs to.

* COMPOSURE : While he can get a little ahead of himself on occasion, K'ran puts a lot of effort into what one might call a mask of control. It tends to slip a bit with those he's familiar and comfortable with, but to the general public he comes across as a friendly, but professional individual with an easy smile.

* COMPASSIONATE : He always makes an effort to see things from other perspectives, and even if he doesn't fully connect with the ideas emotionally, he can generally understand the reasoning behind them. K'ran's always been relatively easy to forgive others and will go out of his way to help those he thinks are in need.

* VIVACIOUS : K'ran goes to great lengths to make sure he comes across as someone who's always approachable, and that aura rarely fades unless he's really off his game.

* HONEST : More of a rule for himself than a personality trait, per se, but Kal tries his best to keep to the truth as much as he can. Harloth usually isn't afraid to assist in that venture.

Weaknesses: 5+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* IMPULSIVE : K'ran is definitely guilty of moments where his instincts get a little ahead of his brain.

* TENACIOUS : In other words, stubborn. K'ran is a bit like a wher with a bone when it comes to a decision he's made; he'll grab it and stick to it until he sees it through, whether that ends in success or failure.

* ARROGANT : A minor fault, this, because K'ran is self-aware enough to realize when his ego gets the best of him, but he's still guilty of the occasional egotistical moment.

* INTREPID : A fancy word for tunnel-vision, K'ran can get a bit bull-headed when he sets his eyes on a goal.

* NAIIVE : He's not naiive in the general sense, but K'ran definitely has a habit of seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses.

Describe Yourself:

* RESILIENT: ----- While one wouldn't call him thick-skinned, Kal is usually aware enough of a given situation to understand when someone's negative emotions are because of him and when they're simply being taken out on him. It's not exactly water to oil for him, but he's not the type to get offended over something that he doesn't view as his fault.

* PLAYFUL: ----- K'ran always has an easy laugh and an easy tease, whether it's meant in the friendly way or the more-than-friends variety. He's the type who would drag a bashful friend into the middle of the celebration just because.

* RESPECTFUL: ----- K'ran has a very defined line as to what is 'too much' when it comes to his own personal issues and feelings, so he takes others' boundaries very seriously as well.

* CREATIVE: ----- K'ran has always been good at coming up with new ways to do things, even if the confidence isn't always there to bring up ideas about the big things. He's got a unique way of doing some of his own chores that don't really affect anyone else, though he tends to find himself getting bashful when others catch him at it.

* PATIENT: ----- K'ran is just as happy to get through things quickly as the next person, but he's always been able to sit on one thing for hours without getting overly frustrated just because it's taking time. Weyrling drills were one of his favorite things, as he could easily spend all day doing the same one or two things until both he and Harloth were worn out.

The Magic Touch: Kal sings, sometimes, when he thinks he's alone. His mother taught him a little of her trade in his teenage years and it's something he uses to remember her by when things get tough. He's got a solid voice but he's not quite confident enough in it to broadcast it.

Family...

Mother: Mabelle, Journeywoman Harper, 21.07.2541. Died 2581.
Father: K’jor, Wingrider, 08.02.2536. Impressed Brown Relnerth at Fort Weyr in 2548. Died in 2589.

Siblings: J'bel (Jorbel--pronounced Yor-bel), born 2565. Impressed Bronze Azarinth in 2583.
Maren, born 2572. Apprentice Healer.
Two half-sisters through K'jor;
--Kahaia, born in 2551, bonded to green Inoth. Prarie Wingrider.
--Brihadra, born in 2583, currently living in the creche.

Children: Daughter Kalleit, born 2584. Mother was a greenrider named Burgit.

Tell us a story...

* Summer 2563, 0 Kallorahn is born to Harper Mabelle and K'jor, a Brownrider stationed at Fort Weyr.
* Fall 2565, 2 Mabelle has a second child to K'jor, and the resulting baby is named Jorbel. Mabelle finally gives into K'jor's cajoling and moves to the Weyr once the baby is old enough to travel safely.
* Summer 2571, 8 Mabelle is pregnant again. Kallorahn secretly hopes for a little sister next.
* Spring 2572, 8 The baby is born, and Mabelle names her Maren. Kal is ecstatic that he (finally) has a little sister.
* Summer 2576, 13 Apprentices with the Healers, because Kal is practical, alright, and he definitely didn't do it on his mother's insistence. He enjoys the learning and knows that he'll be able to help people because he knows these things, and it's enough to know that. But he can't help the dreams of (kind of) following in his father's footsteps.
* Fall 2580, 17 Mabelle announces she's pregnant again, kickstarting K'jor's dreams of his own perfect little family all over again. It's a little less exciting this time, the allure of a third sibling, but Mabelle is radiant in her happiness, and Kallorahn can't help but be drawn along in the wake of her excitement.
* Spring 2581, 17 Kallorahn is Searched by a blue dragon named Aldesmonth and his rider. His mother finally consents to letting him join the candidate ranks, something that he's half-dreamed of for years. He's not very good at hiding his excitement, and Mabelle pretends to be disdainful of it, but Kal doesn't miss the way she smiles when she thinks he isn't looking.
* Summer 2581, 17 Mabelle dies in childbirth, along with the baby. It hits Kal hard, though his candidate duties manage to distract him to some degree.
* Fall 2581, 18 Kallorahn Impresses blue Harloth, which is an utter disappointment to K'jor who'd been hoping for a bronzeriding son. K'ran isn't entirely surprised--he hasn't missed his father's ramblings about his hopes for his sons, but he can't help but be disappointed at the same time. The occasion is darkened even more by the absence of his mother, though it's almost impossible to keep his spirits in the dumps with the blue hatchling suddenly becoming the center of his entire universe.
* Summer 2583, 20 K'ran and Harloth graduate from Weyrlinghood. It is, in itself, a happy occasion.
* Fall 2583, 20 Harloth catches his first green with a female rider, which results in her mentioning, quite offhand several months later that she’s pregnant. Utterly blindsided, it takes Kal a while to come to terms with it.
* Fall 2583, 20 Jorbel Impresses a bronze, fulfilling their father's dream of having a bronzerider for a son and effectively making J'bel the favorite son as far as K'jor is concerned. It opens a rift between Kal and his father, and partly reopens the wound of his mother's death.
* Summer 2584, 22 Burgit, the greenrider with whom Kal conceived a child, gives birth to a baby girl. It's the first time K'ran gets a taste of true responsibility in terms of being an adult--Impressing and graduating from Weyrlinghood had been one thing, but fathering a child and having that child actually living within walking distance is completely new to him, and it takes a while for him to decide how he feels about it. In time, after seeing Kalleit grow for several months he finds that he quite likes the feeling. Not enough to make a regular habit of it--the stress alone is a heartache and a half--but the chubby-faced little girl simply gives him something else to appreciate about his life.
* Spring 2587, 23 The mass exodus of the main continents of Pern begins, and Kal isn't sure what to think. Growing up during the Pass he'd always kind of known that this might be the inevitable result of Threadfall, so missing his home was never much of a concern; as soon as he was old enough to understand, anywhere he lived became nothing more than that.
* 2587, 24 Kalestath's first clutch yields a strange black dragon, and Kal is treated to his first taste of his father's traditionalist nature; he doesn't necessarily follow his father's beliefs but he does understand the discomfort of the situation.
* Spring 2589, 25 K'jor dies to a Hunter attack. Mixed feelings abound.
* Summer 2589, 26 Kalestath's clutch by Neisoth hatches, and even more strangely-colored dragons emerge. Much the same as when Neisoth hatched, K'ran isn't entirely sure what to think. They haven't really shown themselves to be that much different than the normal dragons, so his first instinct is to give them the benefit of the doubt until they prove themselves to be a danger.

The first time K'ran flew on a dragon was wedged in front of his father on Relnerth's back, and it was nothing more than a ten-second ride from the Bowl of Fort Weyr to the brown pair's quarters, but it still left a lasting impression on a boy that would last for the rest of his life. He didn't really remember it in the way he would have if he'd been several Turns older, but the feeling was there, regardless of whether he could imagine it. Those few moments had set the cornerstone for who Kallorahn would grow up to be and in his (not-so-humble) opinion it's one of the few things his father did for him that didn't do its best to knock him down.

It had kickstarted the daydreams of becoming a dragonrider, and while it was Turns before it became anything more than that, those dreams were pretty damn awesome. He'd thought that riding on the back of his father's dragon was the pinnacle of dragonly experiences in his life. If only he'd known what would be coming a dozen Turns or so later. 

Daydreaming again? The soft words pulled him back to the present, the rustle of wings over his head as Harloth returned to his side. It was early evening, and Harloth had been wallowing in the shallow waters since they'd been released from their Wing-related duties. K'ran had stopped, briefly, to eat, but the allure of spending some time outdoors without having to work was an undeniable pull. What made it better was the steady stream of water dripping onto his chest from the leading edge of Harloth's wing. He grimaced. 'Yes. Is that really necessary, Har? You're still wet, if you hadn't noticed.'

And? I think you could use a wash.

That was enough to get an indignant squawk out of K'ran (who had bathed that morning, thank you very much) as he sat up, running a self-conscious hand through his hair. "That's rude," he muttered aloud, casting an offended frown in the general direction of Harloth's head.

Dragon Details

Name:
Harloth
Pronounced:
Like harlot. With a ‘th’ sound at the end.
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
06.2581 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath

Leremith
Measurements:
    Mature Length: 25
    Mature Height: 5
    Mature Wingspan: 43.5

General Appearance...

From the moment Harloth hatched from his egg K'ran thought he looked like a cloud. An angry one, ready to dump a torrent of rain on some poor unsuspecting soul's head. His personality, at first, didn't seem to fit that well, but as he's grown, Harloth has certainly grown into his hide. As a Weyrling, Harloth was always pretty average up until the last third or so of their Weyrlinghood when the rest of their classmates continued to grow at their same steady pace, and Harloth simply...stopped. Granted, he still grew, but coming from a vaguely concerned K'ran who spent most waking moments with the little blue, it was a valid concern. By the time he was fully grown though, Harloth was the picture of a well-proportioned young dragon, and even if he was on the small side for a blue, his personality was more than big enough to make up for it.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Soft-spoken and very careful, Harloth doesn't speak much to anyone aside from K'ran unless there's necessity or a fairly solid friendship has been built. If K'ran hadn't been half-raised by a Harper he would've described Harloth's voice as lyrical, but it's almost too smooth for that, like smoke.

Likes:
*Swimming: As if specifically to be contrary, Harloth is something of a water-lover. He takes great pleasure in frolicking, basking, diving--really anything that means he's in the water for extended periods of time. Even better if he can convince his rider to join him, which happens more often than one might thing if they knew of K'ran's aversion to water.
*Listening to K'ran: Whether he's just talking or in one of his absent-minded moods where little tunes come out in place of normal words, Harloth's always enjoyed to listening to his rider.
*Hunting: While the opportunity doesn't arrive very often to truly hunt--not the somewhat more boring method of hunting the herdbeasts in the Bowl--Harloth does enjoy it to a mighty extent. He does his best to make the most out of the more conventional methods of feeding, but does have a habit of 'playing with his food' a little more than other dragons might be inclined to do.

Dislikes:
*Boredom: Harloth always likes to be busy doing something, even if it's not necessarily active. Lazing about doing nothing has never seemed like a fun thing to him, so he likes to be engaged.
*Snow: There's something about the texture, or the temperature, or the way snow turns all gray and mushy while it melts, that has always rubbed Harloth the wrong way. He just can't quite get down with its existence and always expresses distaste when he encounters this horribly inconvenient substance.
*Babies: They're so loud, and for no reason that Harloth is ever able to discern. He doesn't have the patience for them and always complained as a weyrling when the two of them were assigned to the creche for their daily chores. A very narrow exception is K'ran's little girl, Kalleit, if only because he's partly responsible for her existence in the first place.

Strengths: 2+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* OBSERVANT : Harloth takes great pleasure in watching; certain people or simply in general, he's got a somewhat annoying habit of relaying random tidbits of information to K'ran whenever something catches his fancy.

* HUMOROUS : K'ran had always thought he had a pretty good sense of humor, quick-witted and quick to laugh. Come to find out he doesn't have a candle in a rainstorm compared to his dragon. Harloth is subtle, surprisingly so, and usually doesn't come across as all that comedic to anyone but K'ran.

Weaknesses: 2+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* ARROGANT : While K'ran has never been the arrogant type, it's safe to say Harloth has enough arrogance for the both of them. Luckily (for some) he's the more introverted type, so whatever superiority complex he may have is largely internal, though pieces slip out every once in a while.

* IMPULSIVE : Harloth and K'ran are two peas in a pod when it comes to impulsiveness. They're both prone to jumping into action before their brains catch up.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #2F455D code; Text: #BBC4CF code
