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.

Impression and Genders at Southern Winds
« on: March 07, 2014, 11:38:35 PM »
How Southern Winds Handles Impression:
Southern Winds is a Semi-Canon Pern, in that all we’ve really touched are the events of the 9th Pass and the resulting mutations of Dragons. We’ve taken a lax approach as to what Impresses to what Dragon in that the player determines who is masculine enough for a Brown, who is feminine enough for a Green, and the personalities and sexual preferences that fall there-in. These positions are left intentionally vague with only guiding words of sexual persuasion and gender identity.

This does not mean that Southern Winds Staff only see the male and female genders as the only existent ones – rather, it’s the only ones common to the setting of Pern. This is a canonical requirement for Gold, Bronze, and Brown Riders that we still uphold, though we have been a bit more relaxed in regards to the Brown Riders. 

Should you wish to make a character that doesn’t fulfill any of these roles, or feel your character is not defined by these terms, then that is great! They can still Impress to the Red Dragons who have been mutated beyond the gender prerequisite of their fellow colors and may Impress to anyone of any creed, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

The Dragons were designed to function the way they do because of biological imperative. The Queens, female, must mate with the Bronze, male. This locks in the physical gender of these roles and adheres to the canon Pern requirement. There are a plethora of non-canon Pern sites out there that may allow nuances and variations based on gender impression beyond the scope we have here, and if that is a main concern for you, then unfortunately Southern Winds is not right for you.

Understand that this in no way reflects our OOC Community, who will always uphold and maintain respect for every individual who joins no matter their identity, beliefs, or orientation.

This explanation was deemed necessary after some confusion as to what Southern Winds accepts for a Character and what we, as people, accept as members.
