Guest Info Plot & Events

Current Month
8.2590 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!

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.

Come One, Come All [15.06.2590 // 7pm] OPEN

Notkerric had posted a notice in the Hall that morning: after dinner, he'd be waiting to meet the potential peacekeepers who wanted to work under with him in restoring the Hold to its former glory. He had given a few days after the announcement for things to settle down, and he made sure that those who lived in the hall saw him outside patrolling and training his new wher. Notsk, not even a month old, was growing steadily. He enjoyed the walks outside, and as much as it pained Notkerric to have him leashed, muzzled, and goggled, it was the only way he could start working on the wher.

He hoped that seeing the process of training a wher would help encourage others to join him. They could begin the physical training of the handlers whenever they wished, and Notkerric planned on training Notsk at the one-turn mark rather than two, to see if he would learn quicker at a younger age.

After dinner, he kissed Tavianna on the cheek and moved himself over to another section of the main hall, off to the side enough that he could conduct business but not disturb other diners. After all, he would be the patron of cooperation and working together. It would be the only way that they could survive.

Notsk was back in their cave, leashed tightly to the anchor bolts he and his sons had drilled into the wall. Kerrisk, on the other hand, was settled on the floor next to his handler's chair, looking like the happiest wher in the world. Notkerric was waiting for his friends to join him, but he was hopeful that a few unfamiliar faces would show up.

Spoiler for OOC Info:

Alright, here's the deal. Notkerric needs some peacekeepers to boss around! He's expecting Ophyonis, Aldrekayn, and Kyohei to show up, but anyone else is welcome! If you're interested in playing a peacekeeper but don't know where to start, Notkerric has an older brother, Ophyonis has a former captain, and I'm sure the others have adoptables or people in their history who can be played. Or, you can just make one! I'd be more than happy to help. People who aren't peacekeepers can drop in to eavesdrop or ask about training/getting a wher.

Ever one to keep an eye on his surroundings, Kyohei noticed the moment that the notice for Peacekeepers was posted. In fact, he saw Notkerric hang it up. Kyohei had been eating breakfast at the time, a few hunks of glazed furbeast meat and a roll, and nodded to the man as he left the notice board. With a scowl to those that were starting to file to the board, Kyohei cleared a path for himself and read the announcement. After dinner, hmm...? he thought. Such short notice.... He looked over his shoulder back at the table that he left. It was still vacant, though that was probably due to the blue wher that sat nearby. He grunted in amusement as he watched the little brown wherling roll around on the hall’s floor. He was tied off to Kyohisk, who scowled at the brown’s antics. The desire for peace and calmness slowly surged through their bond and Yoheisk picked up on it. The little brown drew to a halt and looked at the blue with a tilted head and curious eyes.

With another grunt, Kyohei made his way past the table and whistled for his whers. Dutifully, Kyohisk rose and followed, all but dragging Yoheisk behind him. They had other duties to complete today… and maybe a few shrooms to find. They’d be back,  though; Notkerric could count on it.
That evening, just before dinner, Kyohei aroused from his drugged sleep. He had been successful in finding a few psilo shrooms and, while Yoheisk napped on the larger blue wher, Kyohei zoned out for a while. But, he knew that it would soon be time to meet with Notkerric.

Leaving his quarters with his two whers in tow, Kyohei made his way back to the great room of the Mine Hall. He spotted Notkerric and Kerrisk and scowled his way through the crowded hall to get to them. With a nod, he leaned against the wall behind the man. Kyohisk and Yoheisk settled on the floor to Kyohei’s right. The smaller brown curled up inside the front legs of the blue, who kept his head lifted and observed their surroundings.

Kyohei thumbed the top of the hatchet that hung from his belt with his left hand and examined the scar on his right palm. Without looking up, he spoke to Notkerric. “Expecting a big turn out?”

Once dinner was over, Ophy had more or less rushed Domni back to their shared room. In time, her little Blue flit would hopefully be trained to escort her places instead; but since it had only hatched two days ago, Ophyonis knew expecting it to distinguish the right way to and from the dining hall just wasn’t reasonable. And Ophysk’s nose was good, but not good enough to make up for his lack of eyesight in guiding her back there himself.

But even that short little errand couldn’t knock him out of his good mood now, so Ophyonis made his way back to the hall with a certain spring in his step. He’d been waiting for this day for three turns—ever since the entire surviving population of Pern had made the move to Fort Island and abandoned the only place that had ever seemed like home, dirty and cutthroat it might be. He was even more pleased because his long gamble on Notkerric’s social standing and experience had paid off in the best way possible. Even just the man getting his spot as Commander back would have been a victory. But Tavianna’s husband was nothing if not ambitious.

And well-suited to the position of Head Peacekeeper. That the former Lord Holder and his advisors had ultimately agreed just made it even better.

Ophy was grinning as he slid into one of the seats across from Notkerric. No one but Kyohei had shown up yet, but he knew that’d change; Peacekeeping was a respected thing among the Holders, and there’d no doubt be others who wanted their old jobs back, or to grab a new opportunity to make their lives better.

“Evenin’, boss.”

Tiynnalacia had been mulling over the notice since the morning when she’d arrived. She spent a lot of time down at the Minehall, but she wasn’t moving here, her father had insisted and she wouldn’t move against him, not when they’d always tried to keep their family together. Her sister was different, had a family of her own and her husband needed to be close to his work, but the rest of them had to remain at the Weyr. They had to stick together.

But shards did she want to be a peacekeeper again. She wanted a job, she wanted to be useful, she wanted her time to be worthwhile again. Sure, kitchen and cleaning duty at the Weyr were more honourable a profession than they were considered at the Holds, but they were still practically drudge work, and no one would ever consider her so lowly. Not if they wanted to remain popular among the friends of her family.

She should have left with the last dragonriders of the day, but elected to stay overnight, just in case she decided she would stay for the meeting. At dinner, she couldn’t help watching as Notkerric moved over to a table off to the side, and she sighed deeply. She wouldn’t be able to sleep if she didn’t, at least, attend. She mightn’t be able to be a real peacekeeper until her family decided the Minehall was safe enough to move to, but she had to offer whatever help she could, and explain. The peacekeepers were her life before they moved to Fort Island, she couldn’t let them think she’d just abandoned them for the Weyr.

Clearing her plate and dropping it off at the kitchen for cleaning, she smoothed out her tunic with her hands and moved to join the gathering group. Like Ophyonis, she slipped into one of the seats opposite Notkerric, though kept at least a full persons space between herself and the other keeper. She mightn’t have worked with either him or Kyohei personally, but she knew of them both, and most peacekeepers had a need for a respectful amount of personal space, Tiy included.

Before she sat, she saluted to Notkerric, not overly formal but certainly with the respect he was due. “Head Peacekeeper,” she said, before dropping the salute and nodding to the others present, “gentlemen.”

Daresik's wife had told him of the notice, and so he went to the meeting. It wasn't like he was going to provide anything interesting to the proceedings, nor was he particularly curious to see who else would be showing up asking for their jobs back, he liked being a Peacekeeper to be sure, but he had still been working for Tavianna and Ophyonis since the move, making sure the family got what they wanted.

So his life would be mostly the same, although he supposed it would make his family a lot better off, be seen in a better light, at least, that's what his wife told him when she ordered him off to the meeting at dinner time, pointing Daresik in the right direction.

"Sir." He said lowly, nodding his head in greeting to the Head Peacekeeper and Ophyonis at that. He probably had worked with the others before, Kyohei was one he remembered, but the woman was unknown to him, not that he had much of a head for names and faces anyways.

Darsk slinked along beside him, but when he sat, she peeled off to the wall, sitting facing out over the dining hall so that she could analyse what was going on, stiff and alert, with eyes shifting over all of the surroundings.
