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!

"You've laid a fine clutch there Harrier." Elrost congratulated his queen, giving her a stroke above the eyeridges. She trilled questioningly at him, cocking her head to the side, wondering where the compliment had stemmed from. "I'd like to give Seng one. I'd like to... have it be my courting gift." Harrier sent him a frustrated emotion as if to say 'That's all it was? Of course.' Harrier liked the blue rider, there was no denying that, and after all, the eggs had to go to someone.

Elrost had thought a lot about it, spending more and more time over the last two months with Seng had made him realise that he didn't want to let this opportunity go. It was a new time, a new place, a whole new island for Faranth's sake, it was past time for him to get over himself, and not waste someone like Seng. Even if he had to convince the blue rider that it was worth it.

Seng deserved romance, he deserved someone to cherish him. So shard it if Elrost wasn't going to court the rider like he was worth.

They had decided to meet up that night, and Seng was under the impression that they were just going to be meeting in the Weyrhall, but Elrost had other plans. He had only just returned to his room in the crafter caves to choose one of the eggs for Seng, and returned to the little picnic he had set up for them, complete with glows and flowers and the smallest amount of wine that he could get his hands on.

Ellsk was keeping guard of the location while he collected the egg and Seng, and Elrost had hoped that he had gotten the message across to Ellsk that she was supposed to go back to the caverns when they arrived and not to nose in on their dinner, but Elrost couldn't have everything he hoped for.

It had taken quite a bit of planning, a few days to convince the women of the kitchen to let him take foods away from the Weyrhall, a little bit of underhanded trading, but it was worth it, and Elrost was sure not many would begrudge him the gesture.

"Which one do you think?" Harrier nudged a light blue egg towards him, with marbling on the shell that almost made it look like clouds. "You read my mind, dear." It had been a few days since laying, and so Elrost thought they would be hard enough to travel to Seng's weyr tonight. Placing it carefully inside the carisack filled with sand that he had prepared earlier, he thought that it would be safe enough until they had finished their dinner.

Lightly placing it over his shoulder, he made his way out of his room, towards the Weyr hall, where he couldn't help but feel a little giddy when he spotted Seng waiting for him.

"Hey you." He said, coming up behind the blue rider, "How was your day?"

Over the course of the last few months, one of Seng’s favorite things had quickly become spending time with Elrost. Despite the initial flustered awkwardness that he’d felt when they met, the Blue rider had done his best to move past it in order to enjoy the other man’s company. While they didn’t necessarily get to have meals together every day, between various responsibilities between them, they spent time together more often than not.

It was a fact which had led to Forrikenth teasing his rider. I think you have a crush on him, he’d rumbled in amusement one night a few weeks ago, which had made Seng feel like he was going to implode with embarrassment.

And though his dragon wasn’t wrong, per se, Seng regarded Elrost with a sort of hopeful wistfulness more than anything. He’d never really had a relationship, after all, and despite his love of the romantic he had no idea how to proceed. Or even if he should. Not knowing if the Herder felt even similarly about him, Seng was reluctant to broach the topic and lose a friend for it. It would just make things more awkward, and the thought of having Elrost avoid him was enough to convince the rider that it was better if he said nothing at all.

But that wasn’t about to stop him from enjoying time with the man when he could. He’d been worried, in the aftermath of the riot in the Weyr Hall, that things would be tense between them—hailing from vastly different groups of people as they did. Yet much to his pleasure, it hadn’t broken their connection. So it was with a spring in his step that Seng made his way to the Weyr Hall once Prairie Wing was done with its duties for the day.

He cast about for Elrost for a moment, and then turned with a smile when he heard his voice as he approached. “Hey yourself.” His smile had nearly become a grin, but then his curiosity was drawn to what Elrost was carrying. “My day was fine. How was yours? And what’s that?”

Most people know Seng as he/him. Close friends use they/them. Seng is okay with either.

The thrill that he felt when Seng turned his smile towards him was palpable and he cheekily responded, "It's a secret. Now, come with me." Elrost turned, linking his arm through Seng's own and pulling him back through the winding passages towards their little picnic.

The egg felt heavy on his shoulder, perhaps with the weight of what it meant to him, along with the sand and heat and future firelizard.

It did cross his mind occassionally, about how this might chase Seng away. Ruin the friendship that they had formed, and cause the blue rider to run away and never want to see him again. But... Elrost believed that Seng deserved the risk. Sure, if the night turned sour, if Seng didn't like the picnic, seemed weirded out, then Elrost would just give him the egg and not mention the courting... ever again.

But he didn't want that to happen, and hoped, at least, that the blue rider would give him the chance to give Seng what Elrost believed he deserved... and more if he had any say in it.

"My day was wonderful." He said as they walked through the winding cave system towards their spot. It wasn't nice and out in the Weyrbowl under the stars. Elrost had considered it at first, but didn't want anyone disturbing them. The wide and open expanse of Weyrbowl where everyone and their dragon would be able to see them, wasn't exactly the kind of night he had in mind.

So he had explored the caves, trying to find a place which look untravelled, and mostly uninhabited, which hopefully he had. After being back a few times, and not encountering anyone nearby the nook on his way, Elrost thought it was going to turn out just fine.

Before they reached the nook however, Elrost turned to Seng. "Alright, we're almost there. I want you to close your eyes."

“A secret? That’s hardly fair.” He was teasing even so, curiosity piqued to a greater degree by the fact that Elrost wouldn’t simply tell him what it was. But Seng wasn’t pushy or sour enough to go out of his way to ruin something that was clearly meant to be a surprise. So though he was eager, he accepted the Herder’s linking of their arms and followed him.

That he led them away from the Weyr Hall was interesting, though. Hadn’t they agreed to meet for dinner? Seng didn’t think Elrost would have forgotten, but maybe he’d misremembered himself? The kitchens would still be open for a bit either way, so he wasn’t put out. But all of it was conspiring to make him both perplexed and intrigued.

Where is he taking you?

//I have no idea.// Giddy, though, Seng found that didn’t particularly bother him.

“I’m glad you had a good day,” he said instead as they walked. Though before he could inquire as to why it had been wonderful, Elrost had stopped and turned to him again. Quizzical, Seng tilted his head some with a soft and playful smile. “You’re not leading me off for something nefarious are you?” But it was clear he wasn’t complaining, since he shifted a little closer to the other man, holding tight to his arm, and closed his eyes. “I promise not to peek.”
