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!


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.

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

Vironethian was just working, nothing special, his forge was idling, his glass tinting and shaping done, and now they sat, cooling so that tomorrow he could shape, fit, set, and bind them into the leather frames.

A couple of completed frames sat nearby, he having just finishing the final touches, making them look pretty, adding a few studs to ensure they held together through all sorts of hard work, knowing that the Mine Hall were undergoing major construction with the wall, and whers of all sorts were being used to help.

He himself, along with Virosk, had worked on the construction for a few days, trying to make the most of their trips across to measure for goggles, when his customers refused to come to him. It wasn't because he liked helping other people, but it would probably benefit himself one day too. The smith crafters had a good set up at the Weyr, but it would make sense for them to move to the Mine Hall when there was enough room set aside for them.

After all, the two crafts worked in such close conjunction with one another, that carting their work back and forth would soon become detrimental. Regardless, that would most likely be some time off. They had the wall to finish, then the actual Hold, the Smiths would have to wait some time yet, if ever.

Vironethian's workshop was shared, although there were few that needed to use it. Most other trained glass crafters had pretty useless specialties, jewellery and ornaments and the like, not something they'd be wasting precious material on. But the healer hall needed bottles, jars and vials, and the forge he liked to think was his truly wasn't. It had been set aside for glass crafting, so he supposed he could deal with the occasional need to share.

Spoiler for OOC:
So I've tried to set this up to give opportunities for as many different people as possible to be able to jump in here (but it still making sense for Vironethian.)

Wherhandlers - you could have commissioned one of the completed wher goggles and be coming to pick it up.
Glass-smiths - you could be coming in to check on the glass forge. Glass smiths would definitely know of Vironethian and his temper, pm me if you think they actually might be friends.
Smiths - all the smith caves are right next to each other, I'm sure a reason could be thought up
Candidates - could be assigned to chores and went in the wrong tunnel? Vironethian would not be assigned candidates cause he'd make them cry.
Apprentices - they try to avoid assigning them to him, but it's possible.
Weyrfolk - cleaning?
Riders - commission?

At least they broke on a day we don’t actually have to be in the air during drills.

“Yeah, but it’s still annoying as fuck.” Jo muttered the words heatedly under her breath as she strode across the Weyr Bowl and back into the tunnels of the Weyr she’d only left a short while ago once lunch was concluded. In her hands, she held the remains of what had previously been her flight goggles. True to any dutiful rider, Jossekayne oiled them regularly and did her best to maintain them, but the fact was that time had simply caught up with them. Having the same pair almost since she and Lyrisiveth had graduated weyrling training was a point of pride, but the time had finally come to replace them.

Or repair them, she was hoping. Perhaps if the stitching was just redone, and a new lens inserted…

Darlin’, I think they’re done for. The Green’s voice was sympathetic but amused all at once, which would have had her rider glaring in her direction if she wasn’t already out of sight. But even as Jossekayne huffed a sigh, she had to admit that her dragon was… probably right.

The stitching around the right eye had just given out, plain and simple, allowing the glass lens to slip out and get crushed under Jo’s bootheel and into the grass. She’d succeeded at least in picking up all the shards so no one barefoot in the Bowl would have an unfortunate mishap, but it meant that the things were damn useless. At least M’rek had let her go to the Smiths to ask for a repair or a new pair while the rest of the dragon drills finished up.

Even so, gait quick, she was perturbed and not in the best humor as she reached the Smith caverns. A sooty-faced apprentice greeted her there, and directed her toward where the Glass-smiths’ forges were located in an integrated workshop. Her question of whether someone was actually there was answered in the affirmative, so the Green rider simply walked over to make herself known.

But she paused in the doorway as she caught sight of the Crafter beyond, and her eyes narrowed. Him. Huh. Unexpected, and not something that would improve her mood, but so be it.

“I hear you can help me with these,” she said without preamble, and held up her ruined goggles.

Vironethian looked up at the sound of a voice, and his face turned into a scowl when his mind quickly connected voice and face to memory. The annoying little snit from the Mine Hall. Great.

With him seated, and the woman standing in the entrance to his workshop, Vironethian got a good view of her figure. Although he wasn't crass enough to look her up and down like a piece of meat while she was looking directly at him. He could do that while she walked away and therefore less likely to be offended.

"It depends on what you want help with." Standing he snatched the goggles from her hands, not wanting to give her an opportunity to hold on to them. Knowing from previous experience that she was loathe to hand over things when she was asked to.

Bending over them, he studied the goggles carefully. The leather was in reasonably good condition, obviously having been well taken care of, and was therefore unstretched in the typical places. Usually where straps connected to sockets, the leather would miss out on oiling, and therefore crack, stretch, and lose much of it's structural integrity. But overall, it looked well made, an old design, but a good one, one that seemed to withstand the test of time.

"You want new ones? I can get it done by tomorrow evening." Sure, he'd probably be able to use the old leather, restitch it completely, and replace the lenses, but it would be madness to request that. Besides, Vironethian had most of the equipment to make a new set at hand, being prepared for the time sensitive requests of riders. With a set of flight goggles, it was possible that she wouldn't be allowed to drill. But tomorrow was the best he could do for a brand new set.

He crossed his arms across his chest, almost challenging her to be annoyed by the time frame.

So it seemed he remembered her too. If the scowl on his face was any indication, anyway. Well. Fine. It sparked a faint sense of—not quite pride, exactly, but something in Jo that he recognized her and she’d left an impression. Even if it hadn’t been a favorable one, that suited her just fine. But damn right he knew who she was, if not by name.

When he rose and snatched the goggles from her hands, she nearly cursed him out then and there. But a soothing mental croon from Lyrisiveth had Jossekayne biting her tongue. Instead, to resist the urge to take them back for no real reasons, she crossed her arms and waited while he inspected the damaged goggles.

She half expected him to make some disparaging remark about the state they were in. The fact that they’d gotten broken at all. Some stupid comment about how she, as a woman, couldn’t care for her own gear. But he stayed mercifully silent, and the peculiar pleasure in her burned higher that he couldn’t find fault with them. No doubt, if there had been any, he wouldn’t have been shy in saying so.

As fast as he’d taken them, inspected them, and spat back an answer, it might as well have given her whiplash. So she blinked at first, before her brows drew down in a faint frown. “Sure, if you don’t think they can just be fixed.” It wasn’t directly meant to be a challenge to him, but it no doubt came across that way even in part. “No point in wasting resources for a whole new pair if a new lens will do the trick.”

Likely he’d just call her an idiot for saying such a thing, but fuck him.

Vironethian snorted at her comment, "Of course I can fix them, I'm not an amateur." If she wanted to challenge him he would god damn answer it. Some in the smith craft had said that Vironethian could've made a set of goggles out of anything, so making a set a goggles out of a reasonably well kept set would be easy, but she didn't have to know that.

"But considering you wrecked these ones in the first place, new ones will hold up a lot better." He was full of shit and he knew it. Unless they weren't her goggles and she was bringing someone else's in, then she was the one who had maintained them so well. Admittedly, if she hadn't kept them in such good nick, he wouldn't be able to fix the old ones at all.

If he had considered why he said it. Vironethian might've realised it was because he enjoyed the way her eyes flashed when she was angry at him, and was doing it mostly to entice her to anger again. But he didn't consider it, and therefore didn't have to think overly hard of his actions.

There it was:  the insulting runnershit she’d been expecting in the first place. But unless she missed her guess, there wasn’t actually anything wrong with the pair, just that the stitching had given way. Which was to be expected, after all the turns she’d had them. And Jo wasn’t about to let him get away with that shit. “Wrecked? Right, I forgot that keeping them perfect for turns counts as wrecking them. Shame on me.” Her scoff was audible as she jabbed a finger savagely toward him and her old goggles. “If it’s true you’re no amateur, you’ll know I’ve made them last longer than most.”

What the fuck was she saying? Damn him for being able to rile her up so easily. The pair was worn, and in all likelihood he was right, which was all the more infuriating. After so long, it might be time for a new set. But the almost casual dismissal of her efforts had pissed her off, and Jossekayne felt herself spiraling down into a show of temper even as she had to wonder, Why? Why did his opinion bother her so much?

I told you they were probably done for.

//And just who’s side are you on here, Iris?//

Sighing in exasperation, Jo refolded her arms as she glared at Vironethian. “Look, if you genuinely think it’d be better to have new ones rather than patch those up again, fine. But if you’re just saying that to spite me, then fucking fix the things and it’ll be good enough. Wouldn’t want to put you out at all.” The last of which was definitely overly snarky, despite her momentary attempt at actually being reasonable.
