Current Month
8.2591 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.

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.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Araena is not the cleanest of ladies. This is not to say that she is unhygienic, but rather, she does not mind getting a little dirty at times. Then, she forgets that she is dirty, especially when there is something more fun to do, like painting or playing with animals. She favors tough material, like wherhide, and wears form fitting clothing that show off her slender shape and long limbs. Not one to have curves, her bosom is slight and is reflected by a flat behind. The one thing that does draw the eye to her are the rings that she wears on her hands. These rings, which have been passed down for generations in her family, are her pride and joy.
Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Araena was young when the pass ended and does not remember much of it. That being said, her reaction to the stories she hears are filled with horror and dread. She could not imagine living in a time where death was the norm and happiness was hard to find.
Response to dragon color mutations: Araena thinks that the new colors are beautiful. The varying shades of red are like the different colors of paint that she is able to make from the flowers she gathers. Especially the hues of crimsons and pinks found in the red dragons.

Who are you...

Painting - Araena loves to put ink on paper, dyes on cloth, or paint on cave walls, even painting her dragon. If she could paint the whole Weyr in one beautiful mural, she would. Though, she is not certain that the Weyrwoman or the Headwoman would much appreciate that.
Baby Anything - Like most things that are small and cute, Araena loves anything young. She frequents the creche to play with the infants and toddlers and tries to make it to the animal pens to love on the baby runnerbeasts. And don’t get her started on fur beasts; they are so fluffy!
Women - Finding men to have too hard of a touch, Araena prefers to spend her time, and bed, with women. They get her and what it feels like to be a woman’s body, not only sexually, but in the day to day routine.

Rain - The sound of rain pattering on stone relaxes the hyperactive woman. Its a constant, rhythmic sound that lulls here into a calm and puts her mind at ease. Plus, playing in puddles is a fun way to unwind after training all day.
Anger - Araena is one for positive emotions, both from her and from those around her. She does not like it when people scream and yell at her or anyone around her. She would rather be calm and talk things over in a happy way.
Chores - Sure, Araena knows that if chores were not completed, the Weyr would be a mess and nothing would get done. That does not mean that she likes doing them. She would much rather be spending time with her beautiful dragon or painting the ceiling in her quarters.
Being Cold - Araena gets cold easily and when she gets cold, she gets mopey or cranky. She dreads the idea of having a weyr high in the Weyr or the thought of one day flying high in the sky where it is freezing.
Working Hard - Despite her typically flighty personality, Araena is a hard worker. She focuses on the task at hand and is unafraid to get dirty to complete it. She sweats with the best of them and does not stop until the job is completed.
Multi-tasking - She claims that it is because she’s got an overactive mind, but Araena can focus on multiple tasks at once. She is able to take notes from someone speaking, answer questions from someone else, and watch after the little ones toddling around in the creche, with ease.
Wrestling - Maybe it is because she comes from a family of boys, maybe its cause she likes to show others that she’s strong despite her size, but Araena likes and is good at wrestling. Her long limbs and thin body make her nimble in the circle and gives her reach that many people struggle to counter.
Public Speaking - Rarely nervous, Araena is a good public speaker. Her voice does not waver, it is clear, and loud enough for her intended audience to hear. Though she does not carry much authority, she would be useful as a mouthpiece for the leaders of the Weyr.
Running - Araena is a distance runner. Her slender size and long legs serve her well and let her run at a good clip for a long time. While she is not as quick as some sprinters, she can definitely outrun many of her contemporaries.
Recognizing Social Cues - Being one to talk fast and listen little, Araena struggles to catch on to social cues. She'll ramble on and on, long after someone stopped listening or is demonstrating that they don't care. She will then realize her mistakes in the conversation late at night when she is trying to sleep and they haunt her.
Sewing - Much of the repairs done to rider’s clothing is done by themselves. Unfortunately, needlework is one artistic field that Araena is lacking in. Most of her seams and repairs fall apart within a couple of sevendays and she eventually takes her torn clothing to another rider to fix.
Hunting - Despite being one to throw herself at her work, one task that escapes Araena’s attention is hunting. The task of stalking prey or flushing wherries out of trees is just boring to the Red rider. She struggles to stay focused with a bow or spear in hand and would much rather be running around on her dragon.
Cooking - If burning things to a blackish color is considered cooking, then Araena is a pro. Since it is not, she is kept out of the kitchens. The Headwoman learned early on in Araena’s Candidacy to request the girl to not be tasked into the Weyr’s kitchens.

Letting Go - Araena has a hard time letting things go, whether they are hurtful words towards her, funny jokes she's heard, past lovers, or her son. She always revisits them and brings them up in conversation, long after it is appropriate to do so. As for her son, she constantly goes to the creche to visit the little guy in what little free time she can muster.
Describe Yourself:
Silly - When she is not working, Araena can be quite goofy. During her downtime, and when she isn’t painting, she is all about jokes, pranks, and other frivolous activities. While endearing to some, many people find such behavior childish and unwanted.

Motherly - All of her friends describe her as the mother of their group. She is always asking about their well-being, making sure that they are fed, that they are sleeping well, and everything else a mother does. This is beneficial for her dragon, as the majority of her attentions get turned onto the beast.

Flighty - Araena has the attention span of a fire-lizard. She moves through conversations rapidly, never focusing on one subject for too long. This, paired with her tendency to be easily distracted, results in flurried interactions with the woman.

Tolerant - The Red rider is understanding about most people's viewpoints and beliefs. She tries to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and the freedom to believe what they will, without holding it against them.

Respectful - Araena understands that society has an order built into it. Everyone has a superior up until the Weyrleaders, Lord Holders, and Craftmasters, and even they should listen to each other. Araena is listens to and respects those placed over her.
The Magic Touch: Araena almost always has paint on her fingers.

Tell us a story...

[2572, -1 Turns; Fort Weyr] - Kalestath rose to be caught by Leremith. The Flight Lust that hung over the Weyr encouraged a brown rider, named D'rik, to bed with a woman from the Lower Caverns. She grows pregnant as a result.

[2573, 0 Turns; Fort Weyr] - On the fourteenth day of the second month of the year, Aeris gives birth to her second child; her first daughter whom she names Araena. Araena is not only Aeris' second child, but she is Aeris' second child with D'rik. She is the cause of her parents' decision to mate permanently.

[2576, 3 Turns; Fort Weyr] - Araena is joined by another girl in her family, as Aeris and D'rik have their third child and second daughter. Too young to remember the birth, Araena does not have memory of a time without Adraes. Turns later, her father would recount to her that she was happy to have another girl around. The finger paintings that she did in the creche began to have new lines in it; little short lines to represent her sister.

[2580, 7 Turns; Fort Weyr] - Aeris and D'rik's fourth and final child is born; a boy named Doraek. Aeris' pregnancy was a difficult one, filled with fainting spells and weakness. Araena worried for her mother's well-being but helped her throughout the nine months. She feared that not only would the baby die, but her mother would die too. Her fears, thankfully, were not realized, as Aeris gave birth to the boy successfully. Her art, being more defined since the last time her mother gave birth, morphed and showed her family as a happy gathering of stick figures.

[2583, 10 Turns; Fort Weyr] - Damraen, Araena's older brother, is Searched, which he accepts. Nervous, but happy for her brother, Araena wishes him the best of luck. Later that turn, Damraen Impresses a blue dragonet from Kalestath's and Leremith's clutch. Ecstatic for her older brother D'raen, Araena paints him a portrait of him and his blue dragonet Omoth.

[2585, 12 Turns; Fort Weyr] - Araena is Searched directly from the Creche, a few sevendays before her nameday. On her nameday, she accepted the Search and became a Candidate. Filled with hope and excitement about the prospect of helping those people around her, he flung herself at her lessons... when she could focus. When she could not, she would doodle with charcoal on the wall and would draw herself astride dragons of varying colors.

[2586, 13 Turns; Fort Weyr] - Once more, during Kalestath's Flight, Flight Lust made a mark on Araena's life. She found herself in the bedfurs with a blue rider when the Flight was over. Though not her first time sharing the 'furs with another, it was her first time with a man. It was a rough encounter that left Araena bruised and sore, scaring her away from tenderness with men. However, this Flight resulted in a beautiful little boy whom she named Arimar. Araena's art, when she managed to have time to create, was focused solely on the boy; sketches of his hands, paintings of his feet, anything she could do.

[2587, 14 Turns; Southern Winds Weyr] - The 9th Pass ends. To Araena's amazement, her little family survived the Catastrophe. Both of her parents, her three siblings, and her son all made the voyage to Fort Island together. However, three sevendays after her family's arrival on Fort Island, tragedy struck. Araena's mother, Aeris was killed when two large crates toppled over on the beach and crushed her. Aeris died from her injuries two days later. Distraught, and in mourning, Araena withdraws into her paintings, which took on a darker tone for a few months. She mused that the black dragon that was hatched took on her dark mood and it changed his hide.

[2589, 16 Turns; Southern Winds Weyr] - Despite her father's traditional views, Araena developed an open mindset. As such, she was intrigued by the new Weyrleader and that he rode the new Black color. She looked forward to the changes that he had the potential to bring about.
RP Sample
The rain was a steady sound in her ears. It was calming, the patter, and brought cooler tones to mind. Araena looked up at the wall of her alcove; she was currently redoing the mural that she had painted there. She turned around to face the boy of four Turns behind her. "Well, little man," she began with a smile, "what do you think?" Araena walked over to the boy and crouched down in front of his chair.

The boy giggled and called for firelizards to be painted. With a wink and a tap on the boy's nose, Araena stood up and scooped him up in her arms. "You're just the bestest little boy, aren't you, Arimar?" Her son giggled again and wrapped his arms around the back of her neck.

Hugging him back, she began to head for the corridor. It was time to take him back to the creche; the afternoon's lessons were about to begin and she could not afford to be late this time. They were learning about making straps and Araena knew how bad she was at sewing.

"Mommy, I'm hungry," Arimar pleaded, pulling his head back to look at her. After he was assured that he would get food in the creche, Araena hurried to get him there. With a sad wave goodbye, she turned from the creche and all but ran back to the Candidate quarters.

General Appearance...

Ceryth is a gorgeous dragon and knows it. There's no single color to his hide, and instead he looks like a faceted stone caught out in sunshine. Brighter flecks and freckles make him look like a deep ruby, and there are only a few patches on his chest and the fronts of his wings that look even remotely pale or washed out. Whatever blood might be splattered on him when he bonds to Araena, it will be difficult to spot. As he grows, his color will only deepen -- and Ceryth will only grow more proud of it. Have you ever seen a dragon as bright, as scintillating?

He'll end up being big for a Red, despite his size at his hatching, but Ceryth will never be an appropriately proportioned dragon. He'll remain far shorter than the norm, almost squat, but with powerful and muscular legs and tail. His wingspan will be his greatest weakness -- almost ten meters shorter than it should be, and without large wingsails, he will ever be a terrible flier that tires easily and isn't suited to maneuvering, stamina, nor even great feats of speed. His true talents will lie on the ground, including jumping, running, and climbing.


Mind Voice: Ceryth's voice is a deep bass, almost ridiculous sounding for a dragon of his size. It has a certain laziness to it almost constantly, and turns into something of a growl when he's sulking about something. For all his relaxed nature, Ceryth's mental presence is very vivid and intense -- almost too much for those who aren't used to it, including Araena at first.

Competition : He has a competitive streak a mile wide, and will take or issue challenges he shouldn't out of a sense of both arrogance and ambition. Anything that can be turned into a game with a clear winner will catch his interest; on the other hand, things that are less about that will make him bored.

Grooming : Ceryth is a vain creature. Don't you think he's pretty? That his markings are eye catching? He's far more attractive than any metallic dragon, and brighter too. He'll outright demand that Araena bathe and oil him regularly, and he'll pester her when she gets dirty. If her hands are filthy, he'll run away from her until she's cleaned up.

Instructions : Ceryth doesn't like being told what to do. At all. And he'd much rather figure out how to do things on his own, even if that means fucking up, rather than being given instructions. His patience will wane even faster if they're complicated, and eventually he'll just tune them out and start whatever it is he's meant to be doing. Which will make him something of a trial to deal with.

Flights : This won't manifest until he's older, but Ceryth will be sullen when Greens or female Reds rise, and most of the time won't even bother giving chase once he realizes that his wingspan puts him at such a disadvantage. Fast as he might be, his lack of stamina and maneuverability will make him unlikely to win flights unless there's ever a situation where a female chooses to let him catch her.


* INDEPENDENT : Ceryth doesn't need anyone else -- besides his rider, and he might even tease her at times that he scarcely needs her either, which is one of his own bizarre ways of showing Araena affection -- and he won't have an interest in friends. He is fully self-possessed and doesn't need input, sympathy, or guidance. While this is an arrogant trait of his and one that some will no doubt find annoying, it gives him a certain strength of character. He'll never be one to give in to peer pressure or be swayed by cajoling.

* ANALYTICAL : Ceryth is intense. Constantly. He's hyper-aware of everything around him, and spend a lot of time analyzing and thinking about it all -- just very quickly and from a self-centered point of view. While he's younger, this will lead to quick but bad decisions because he thinks he knows all the facts about a situation before he actually does. With time, experience, and some tempering, however, this will turn into a skill that lets him make fast and keen calls about anything that comes his way.


* MOODY : Ceryth is prone to sulking when he's unhappy, and nothing will make him more so than being denied something he wants or thinks is his right. He'll brood, grumble, and complain, and breaking him out of it will usually require some kind of distraction. He's also very proud, and will dwell on failures and insults for a long time. He has difficulty letting things go.

* UNCOOPERATIVE : Obnoxiously, this Red thinks he knows best in everything. His opinion -- and Araena's -- are the only ones that matter, and he won't listen to anyone else:  which will make him clash with peers and superiors alike, potentially making for a lot of discipline and a lack of friends. Some might even say he's contrary just for the sake of it, and that isn't entirely incorrect.
