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 Gift is Hatching [ 9.6.2590; 8:30 PM ] || Elrost
« on: May 18, 2017, 07:20:16 PM »
Seng hadn’t necessarily intended to get a third flit—just as he’d sort of happened upon Impressing to Sparrow and Heron by accident—but the egg Elrost had given him had made a lovely courting gift. Kept safe and warm in his weyr, it had sent a thrill of happiness through him every time he’d looked at it or the tiny sand-and-coal filled brazier where it sat nestled and incubating. If anything, the fact that Elrost of all people had given it to him made Seng even more fussy over it than he would have been otherwise. Heron and Sparrow had been actively hatching when he’d bonded to them, but this required a little more finesse. Even just the thought of it being damaged or not hatching was enough to make him want to cry.

But he was sure it would, just as Forrikenth was. The Blue was brooding it over it just as much as his rider was, eager to see what would hatch from it—and excited at the next step that Seng had taken with the man that had given it to him.

More than anything, Seng wanted Elrost to be there when it hatched. He knew it might not work out that way, but he hoped it would—stashing a few strips of dried meat alongside the egg and pot for feeding the tiny creature when it did emerge from its egg. But even for all his anticipation, it took him a moment to recognize Sparrow and Heron’s humming for what it was. Seated on the floor of his weyr, the Blue rider had been oiling and checking over his riding leathers to keep them supple and free of damage. To hear his fire lizards thrumming had been confusing at first, the sound so much less than the weyr-vibrating noise of all the dragons humming before a clutch hatched.

“Oh!” Gasping as it dawned on him, he shot to his feet, nearly overturning the small pot of oil onto the floor as he rushed over to the heated pot. Pulling off the lid of it, he was greeted by the sight of the blue and white egg rocking back and forth with a very clear purpose. Shifting over to him, Heron peered up at it and Sparrow settled on Seng’s shoulder, twining her tail loosely around his neck to help balance herself as she trilled in excitement.

“Forrikenth… shit.” Glancing between the egg and his dragon, Seng was torn. He couldn’t very well leave it now, but transporting it down to the Beastcraft barn didn’t seem practical either. If Elrost was even still there this late in the evening…

I’ll see if he’s there. Rising to his feet on the weyr ledge, the bulky blue spread his wings to drop off to the grass of the Bowl. He landed as near to the beast pens as he dared, noticing the crowd of people that had gathered near the barn. And as he peered over their heads, he caught sight of the one man he was looking for—apparently just finishing with the rest of Harrier’s clutch hatching, if the small cloud of tiny fire lizards was any indication.

The egg you gave Seng is hatching, he announced without preamble, sliding into a crouching position. He’d like it if you would come to his weyr. If you can. Eyes having taken on a more green-hued blue in his excitement, the dragon tilted his head some. I don’t have my straps and harness on, but I promise to be careful.

Sure as he was, it didn’t occur to the Blue that Elrost might say no. Not when Seng was fidgeting and anxious in his weyr as he watched the rocking egg.

Spoiler for OOC:
@Inki @Elrost Let me know if any aspect of this needs changed. <3

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

Elrost started at Forrikenth's voice in his head, and quickly turned from the firelizard sands to spot the blue. "Thank Faranth." It seemed the gold dragon had smiled down upon him and heard his words of hope that Seng's would wait for him to find him so that they could experience together.

"I'm coming!"He took off towards Forrikenth at a jog, calling out to the gathered crowd which were all mostly occupied with their own little babies at the moment. "Help yourself to anything in the barn that you need, keep the hatchlings away from the beasts, and come find me tomorrow if you have any questions about them. And good luck!"

Hesitating only for a moment at the blue's words of no straps, Elrost pushed the fear aside, and climbed awkwardly onto his back. The beastcrafter didn't have much experience with flying, despite having some practice with Forrikenth of late, he still was not exactly graceful in the act. "Thanks Forrikenth. I'll just, er, hold on tight."

The trip was smooth enough that Elrost was still seated safely on Forrikenth's back when they arrived at Seng's weyr, and he took off quickly into the main room.

"I'm here, I'm here. Sorry I took so long."

As Elrost approached, Forrikenth lowered himself as close to the ground as he could. While he’d flown on the Blue’s back a handful of times, it had always been with Seng—and always with the straps on. But Forrikenth had no intention of dropping him, and it wasn’t as though he was some fresh-eyed dragonet not used to being ridden. Nevertheless, he made it as easy as possible for the Herder to climb up his shoulder and settle between his neck ridges.

Hold as tight as you need. You won’t hurt me.

Once Elrost was seated, the Blue took off as smoothly as he could. He knew Seng would not be especially pleased if he jostled his companion around overmuch. So more so than normal, Forrikenth did his best to make both the departure and the landing an easy process—even going so far as to press himself down low on the stone again just as he had in the Bowl, so that Elrost could slide off him once more with a minimum of awkwardness and risk to his weaker leg.

“Oh, I’m so glad you’re here!” Seng had been alternating between watching the rocking egg and the edge of his weyr for Forrikenth and Elrost’s arrival, and his expression was a mixture of nervousness and excitement as he darted over to the Herder, taking his hand to pull him toward the brazier. Both Heron and Sparrow chirped greetings, but their attention was far more focused on the egg.

“I was afraid you wouldn’t be in the Bowl, or that you wouldn’t get here in time… Forrikenth wasn’t too bad even without the straps? I’m sorry I didn’t have time to put them on first…” He was rambling, but he didn’t think Elrost would mind. “What do you think is going to hatch from it?”

Maybe it will be a handsome Blue like me.
