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!


Feel free to say hello, guesties! Registered members can request a colored name here.



Remember,
this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

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.

Regards,
Southern Winds Weyr

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Q'ellan dresses nondescriptly, preferring to wear things that don't make him stand out because of their opulence, nor with their raggedy colours. He likes greys and browns, neutral colours, usually natural and easy for the weavers to make, not embroidered or special, he doesn't deem it necessary to trade for flair and fashion sense.

Messy hair, usually a little too long than it should be, but occasionally, when he feels like he is becoming unprofessional and unworthy of a candidate, he'll go get it shorn by whomever of his past drudge companions is available.

Walking around the Weyr, he usually slouches, but in lessons and around the Weyrwoman, he holds himself high and with pride in the station that he has been granted. After his impression, Q'ellan will slouch less, smile more, and laugh often. His lovely Red will give him a confidence and assuredness in his person that he has never felt before.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Q'ellan used what he could and did what he had to do. He was the lowest of the low, the smallest piece of the puzzle, and yet, he still knew that it was a puzzle he was a part of, and that potentially, the aim of the game could change. He manipulated, he was manipulated, he survived and he let others go, Q'ellan did what he had to do.

Response to dragon color mutations: He has never been much of a supporter of sticking to tradition even if it kills you. Seeing the flaws and benefits, Q'ellan can see both sides of the argument for the dragons, but after impressing his Red, cannot agree with the more traditionalist and flawed side. She is just like any other dragon.

Who are you...

Likes:
*Intelligence - Q'ellan likes to have a conversation with someone that is stimulating, someone that can hold their own and doesn't have to be constantly entertained. They don't have to be book smart, or just street smart, but enjoys listening to people who have learnt and want to learn.
*Education - He never got an education, he never learnt to read and write, and now, learning what he can as a candidate, Q'ellan is a big supporter of the creche and the work they do, bringing up intelligent children.
*Food - Knowing what it's like to go without, or to go with staleness, Q'ellan likes all and any sorts of food, and will never complain.
*Soft beds - He's slept on hard surfaces for too many years, when he was in ladies and lords beds he enjoyed being asked to stay for the night, because he was allowed to stay in their comfy beds, instead of returning to his table.

Dislikes:
*Holders - He doesn't regret what he's done, but he does look down upon Maeron and his establishment for letting those things happen to innocents. Not him, he doesn't see himself as an innocent, but the people he met along the way who couldn't protect themselves and were not saved by the "institution".
*Politics - It's not his business, even if he may have a head for it, he's decided he doesn't care for it and the egotistic people that will come along with it.
*Immaturity - Q'ellan had to grow up fast, and whilst he sort of wishes he still had that carefree and happy-go-lucky immaturity that some have, it annoys him when he feels its too much. When they have a job to do and whomever's immaturity is compromising it. Or if it just annoys him.
*Being surprised with touch - He gets jumpy about people touching him without his permission. He's not against it in general, but people who grab you into hugs, put their hand on his shoulder, without asking him whether he's okay with it. It... discomforts him and he will simply ask that it not be done again. It's the people who continue to do it, despite being asked not to, that he really hates.

Strengths:

* CALM : Q'ellan doesn't like to let many things make him show his annoyance and anger. Never one to shout, or scream, or rage, or fight. He is almost a pacifist, but a pacifist who doesn't seek to attempt to resolve arguments, he does not feel like that is his duty.

* QUICK : He's intelligent, with a quick mind, and is able to respond and make decisions in record time. Whilst he won't always act on it, he will have already formulated his decision or opinion or response in his head.

* PROTECTIVE : Just because the world is tough, doesn't mean everyone has to suffer. If he can, Q'ellan will try to protect people from getting hurt. It doesn't control him, in fact, he'd rather give up on a possible fight sacrificing his protection of someone, but he still values it highly.

* INDEPENDENT : Q'ellan doesn't need anyone. Sure, he might enjoy having someone around occasionally, but he won't ever complain for not having anyone around.

* WORKER : He likes work, he likes to have things to do, but most of all, he likes the feeling he gets by accomplishing something.

Weaknesses:

* INTOLERANT : Whenever someone does something he believes is wrong, he will note it, log it away in his mind, and probably dredge it up in his memory if someone does something similar again. Q'ellan isn't someone to just, explain someone else's actions away if he starts to notice a trend. He does not forget, even if he may forgive.

* QUESTIONER : He likes to understand and question why people believe things, which is sometimes annoying because it makes people feel like he's challenging them, which he sometimes is. It's not usually to be annoying, he just likes to know how and why others came to their opinions and whether or not that is enough information for him to agree with.

* UNEDUCATED : Q'ellan can neither read nor write, he's been taking lessons to do so, but between his candidate lessons and duties, he spends a lot of his time studying by himself late at night. At a disadvantage to the others, Q'ellan strives to remedy this weakness.

* EMOTIONALLY DISTANT : If Q'ellan has any choice in the matter, he would not share his intimate details with anyone. He's not ashamed of his past, but he doesn't believe that it's the general populace's business to go digging into his personal mind and thoughts.

* COLOUR BLIND : Q'ellan has a rare form of colour blindness known as monochromacy, causing him to see the world in black, white and varying shades of grey. The only major effect it has had upon him, other than his inability to distinguish colours, is the need to use dark wher-like goggles during the daytime drills, and wear tinted eye-glasses the rest of the time, because his eyes are particularly sensitive to the bright weather on Fort Island. This didn't manifest itself greatly on the main continent, the constant thread blocked out most of rukbat's rays, and he spent most of his time inside under dim glows. It was only after the end of the pass where Q'ellan started to experience discomfort from light sensitivity and commissioned his current eye protective gear.

Describe Yourself:

* DETAILED: ----- Some who find his eye for detail annoying might call him a perfectionist, or even finicky, but he just likes doing things as well as he can. He's not a perfectionist, because he will give in if he believes he has put in the effort the task deserves.

* QUIET: ----- Q'ellan doesn't speak much, he doesn't fill the need to fill space with idle chatter. He will if the conversation is interesting enough, he tries to not be rude either, but he's simply not someone who needs to be in conversation and talking all the time.

* COMPLEX: ----- A bit hard to understand, Q'ellan has a steel trap for remembering every slight, and will simply pick and choose what he wishes to remember about you. Protective, but not protective enough to stand up for someone if a fight will be too hard, and caring, but not caring enough to risk his own comfort, it might be hard to like Q'ellan if anyone knows him for long periods of time, and begins to understand how complex he is.

* GRATEFUL: ----- He's grateful to be a candidate, grateful to be alive, and grateful to have survived when lots did not. He doesn't regret the things he did to survive, he's not bitter, Q'ellan simply takes it as a fact of life, and it simply makes him more aware of how lucky he is to be a candidate at Southern Winds Weyr.

* WEIRD: ----- He likes being alone, and he likes things that other people don't. People find him strange, his mannerisms, his speech, his preference to choose to do things whilst others may not, and refuse to do things that others enjoy. Q'ellan is a loner, a little weird and a little strange, but he wouldn't have it any different.



The Magic Touch: Q'ellan won the genetic lottery when it came to his colour blindness, he doesn't suffer from many of the issues that his acquired condition could present.

Family...

Mother: Quel, Drudge, b. 2558, d. unknown
Father: Unknown, Lord Holder's Son, b. 2550, d. unknown

Siblings: Q'ellan was raised by the other drudges, and barely knew his mother, after a few turns, he simply forgot what she looked like, and forgot even what her name was. She died somewhere in his teens, but he never found out. His mother, Quel, or his father could have fathered children in the rest of their time, but Q'ellan would never know.

Children:
Q'ellan doesn't know about most of his children, nor who their mothers are, but they're out there, floating around not knowing who their father is, simply because their mothers don't want to know that they're born of a drudge, or because their mothers too, do not actually remember. But he did his duty in candidacy, slept with candidates and dragonriders alike, in order to have someone vouch for his loss of virginity.
Unknown - 2584 - Holder mother
Unknown - 2586 - Holder mother
Terrya - female - creche - 2587 - Candidate mother
Larion - male - creche - 2588 - Dragonrider mother


Tell us a story...



* 2570, 0 Born to a drudge after a one night stand with the Lord Holder's son, Q'ellan was never told any more details than that from his mother. She seemed to get jumpy whenever he asked, and so, he simply stopped caring about knowing details about his father.

* 2575, 5 His mother raised him for a time, but she had work to do, he was "raised" among some other children, but mostly just left to their own devices once they could work and function without needing supervision. Qrellanor felt out of place with some of the other children, not enjoying their play time, but he muddled his way through eventually, helping around the Hold by simply keeping out from underfoot.

* 2580, 10 Not knowing any more than his name, the Hold did not stick to the typical "being work at 12 turns" rule, he simply looked old enough to start working. Qrellanor spent his days in chimneys, cleaning hearths, and running cleaned and dirtied sheets around the hold. It didn't provide a lot of food, he was never clean, but he was alive, some of the other drudges were nice, so he survived. Qrellanor didn't dream of another life, he couldn't, he simply kept working every day like he was told.

* 2584, 14 Qrellanor was fast into puberty, growing tall quickly and becoming lean and gangly. He was attractive enough, cute, youthful, and so drew the eye of many lonely Hold widows and wives. He wasn't a whore, he had no pimp, no marks transferred for services, just doing what he had to do to get food enough to not starve, Qrellanor didn't feel like he was being used, just providing a service that he didn't object highly to doing. He was passed between rich holder ladies houses, setting up their fires to warm their houses, and warming their beds at night. It was better than being on the street with nothing, or officially being a whore. At least, to an extent, it was his choice to do this, and no one else's. For the first time in his life, Qrellanor was making his own choices, and he didn't hate himself for it, but neither did he enjoy it.

* 2587, 17 The pass ended, but Qrellanor didn't notice much, he heard tale of a new island, and was pleasantly surprised when they were all given the opportunity to start afresh. Qrellanor flew on a dragon for the first time in his move to Fort Island. A blue one, dark and handsome, and as he touched the ground on his new home, Qrellanor's life was changed forever. The blue rider searched him, and Qrellanor accepted without hesitation. Qrellanor used this opportunity to start learning how to read and write, get more of an education, and in his time off exploring some of the crafts in case he doesn't impress.

* 2590, 20 Current day, in Kalestath's clutch of 2590, Qrellanor stands on the hot sands of the hatching ground and his life is changed forever. He impresses a Red, who happily informs him that his new name... is Q'ellan.

Qrellanor tried not to be nervous, tried to... contain himself and not let the what if? which echoed through his mind get to him. He didn't want to get his hopes up, nor did he want to be a pessimist about this. Trying to be realistic, he pushed negativity and positivity out of his mind, and focussed on the situation. O'sir had been very specific with his instructions, be clean, be polite, and be ready. Qrellanor was all of those things, and regardless of whether this actually did anything in preparation for a future impression, Qrellanor was going to undertake it as he was directed.

Trying to stay out of other candidates way, Qrellanor walked right to the back of the room, after he had bowed to the Weyrwoman and the Queen. His eyes were focussed on an egg which colour seemed to fade across the surface. It was a dark at the top, fading to lighter at the bottom [28]. He tried not to linger too long, tried not to let his thoughts wander too much into whether or not he would actually impress, but simple logistics.

It was a large clutch, fathered by Neisoth too, so perhaps more blacks and reds would be fathered this time. He wondered whether the colour of this egg meant anything about the colour inside, and considered asking the nearest candidate to tell him what colour this egg was, but decided against it, and instead turned his thoughts to what colour this egg might be. What if this egg hatched a little red darling? They were cute, a little overexcited, but Qrellanor didn't see anything wrong with that. If a red wanted to choose him, he would be more than happy to deal with incessant talking for the rest of his life.

He moved on, touching a few dappled grey eggs at the back of the clutch [26], [25], [24], and considered the possibility of them being green. Qrellanor wasn't afraid of sex, wasn't afraid of strangers or attention either, he didn't see a downside in a female dragon, having no particular preference for men or women in his bedroom. A green might suit him as well, he supposed.

Dragon Details

Name:
Ooromoth
Pronounced:
[ OO-row-moth ]
Color:
Red
Date of Birth:
34.06.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 14.1M
Mature Height: 2.82M
Mature Wingspan: 26M

General Appearance...

Ooromoth's coloration may not be as bright as some of his siblings -- save for the upper part of his wingsails -- but he's an attractive dragon nevertheless, with markings very much like those on a koi. Most of his body is a washed out clay in color, like red earth, and turns particularly pale on his underbelly, his claws, and the lower parts of his wings. Here, it's so desaturated that it's almost orange or tan rather than red. On his wings, these areas are swirled in with the same bright cherry red that characterizes the upper parts of the sails -- and the outside of his wings are instead an attractive magenta. If you ask Ooromoth himself, his favorite part of his hide are the splotches of red on his limbs, neck, face, and back:  as red as his wings, they look like dustings of scales.

On the smaller side of the size class for his color, Ooromoth is not meant to be a fighter. He looks almost delicate and spindly in build, and may struggle to carry heavy loads or extra passengers beyond his rider. Just not built to be a heavy lifter, his talents will lend themselves towards speed and finesse instead. While his wings aren't big enough to be a hindrance, they are larger than they should be for his size, with flexible sails and the capacity for quick maneuvering.
 

Personality...

Mind Voice: Ooromoth's voice is soft and gentle, though not demure. He's not shy, but he is soft spoken and talks at a relaxed pace. Only in great emergencies will he ever sound rushed. His mental projections in particular will always be very clear and precise; since he thinks it's very sad that Q'ellan can't see colors himself, one of his favorite things will be sending his rider what he sees, colors and all. One of the first things he'll do once he's Impressed is 'show' Q'ellan what his own coloration looks like.

Likes:
Clouds : He thinks they're fascinating, and he could watch them move across the sky all day and be perfectly happy. Ooromoth will enjoy seeing the difference between them with variances in the weather -- as well as finding shapes in them like a child.

People Watching : Though not necessarily incredibly social or moved to interact with people himself, Ooromoth enjoys observing others and guessing at what they're thinking, where they're going, what they're doing… He's keenly aware of what makes others tick, which will manifest as curiosity about them. He'll just never be particularly moved to ask them.

Dislikes:
Wastes of Time : This Red enjoys his down time, so he won't be especially keen on things that take up time just for the sake of it, nor for people who do things inefficiently. Ooromoth wants to do things once, and well, and as quickly as possible so that he can relax the rest of the time.

Being Angry : Ooromoth dislikes the feeling of it, how it 'tastes', and how it makes him act. He'll actively avoid situations or others that spark his quick but potent rage, because just how angry he gets frightens him a little. By the same token, he'll bend to the will of others or forgo his own wants to avoid an argument.

Strengths:

* GENTLE : Excepting the mishaps at his hatching, Ooromoth wouldn’t hurt a fly. He just doesn't have it in him to fight or injure other creatures. While he's not a coward, he prefers to avoid confrontation if at all possible, especially physical, though this extends to verbal arguments too. Above all, Ooromoth wants to make sure others are safe, healthy, and happy.

* WISE : Despite his seeming innocence, Ooromoth is not naďve. He may be sensitive and gentle-natured, but that doesn't mean he needs to be shielded from the truth of things. Rather, he has an easy grasp of what the world actually is, what people are like, and the harder things to face. 'You don't need to shelter me, Q'ellan,' will be a frequent refrain from him if his rider ever tries to protect him from things rather than facing them head on and side by side.

Weaknesses:

* SENSITIVE : While he's not easily overwhelmed, Ooromoth still experiences things vividly. Grief and anger will affect him greatly -- but so will joy and love. He's not good at moderating his emotions, though this will improve some with age and practice. At the very least, there's no artifice or dramatics in him; whatever he feels, he feels genuinely.

* SUBMISSIVE : Ooromoth is not good at standing up for himself. Stronger or more arrogant personalities will dominate his with relative ease, and he will come to rely on Q'ellan to give him the strength to tell them no when it's necessary. This Red wants other people to like him, so he doesn't like having to do things that may make that change.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #E2856E; Text: #C42B3F

Flit Details

Name:
Void
Pronounced:
How you would think
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
27.09.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Exceedingly tiny from the moment he hatches, this Blue will always remain so -- only being slightly larger than the biggest Green when he's finally full grown. In dark settings he may almost appear black, especially his wingsails, which are the deep, abyssal blue of the darkest sea or night sky. The rest of his body is a softly mottled navy, with only a faint sprinkling of lighter spots on his forehead.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Despite his severe, dark appearance, this Blue is a sweet boy that likes to trill and croon as his primary form of communication. The brush of his presence against Q'ellan's mind is light, mellow, and relaxed. The pictures he provides are a little hazy, almost impressionistic in that they are composed of broad strokes rather than delicate details.

Likes:
Pretty Rocks : His greatest weakness. He'll build himself a nest like any Gold might, out of anything soft he can find and commandeer, but the true decorations of it will be any stones he can find that are smooth, shiny, or interestingly patterned.

Doting on Q'ellan and Ooromoth : They're his darlings, and he very much wants to make sure they know how much he loves them. Whether that be by donating some of his shiny rocks to them, 'singing' to them with his soft coos, or even rubbing against them affectionately, he's a very adoring flit.

Dislikes:
Bright Lights : This flit does not have the best eyesight -- thus his somewhat hazy mental images -- and the brightest of lights can wash out the things he does see or make it difficult to perceive them altogether. He much prefers when the sun is shrouded by at least some cloud cover, as the softer light isn't as hard on his eyes.

Overbearing Flits : As a somewhat demure creature himself, he's not fond of those who will throw their weight -- especially their rank -- around just to get him to do what they want. Golds and Bronzes will never be his favorite.
