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!

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

Jungle Curse Continues
01.08.2590 // 2pm

On a dreary fall day, the weather suddenly turns, and a Weyrling makes a dreaded mistake. Distracted, she betweens slightly to the left of her allotted flight path, and takes a full blast of flame from a fellow Weyrling.

With the Weyrling's chances seeming dire, Jungle Wingleader R'sin of Dekkath attempts to save Ildaroth, and her rider, Ny'la. However, in her extreme pain the young green Ildaroth panics, and takes herself, her rider and the Jungle Wingleader pair between.

Neither pair return.



What does this mean?
During the pass, it wasn't uncommon to lose approximately two Weyrlings per clutch, but since the arrival at Southern Winds Weyr, the odds have been far greater, and this is a shock to all those involved. Not only did they lose a Weyrling only months away from graduation, the Weyr has lost their Jungle Wingleader. It is likely the Jungle Wing will have a new Wingleader promoted by Halirina, after a few days grace with respect to R'sin's memory.

Weyrlings
Weyrlings will likely be the most affected by the loss.
• All the clutches from 2588 were in the air at the time, and a fellow 2588 Weyrling was the one to deliver the flaming blow to Ildaroth. Ny'la impressed Ildaroth in Imyth's 2588 clutch, so she would have many friends in the sky with her.
• The clutches from 2589 were studying inside the Weyrling barracks, with Wa'by although no doubt they heard the dragon's cries, and many would have witnessed the event.
• Kalestath's 2590 clutch had a prime view of the event, and no doubt it will serve as a grim reminder to them as they go forward with their training. W'um has directed Kalestath's 2590 clutch to return to the Weyrling barracks.

Riders
• Beach Wing and Prairie Wing would have been undergoing their afternoon wing duties (dragon drills and ferrying), and will therefore be either there to witness the event, or at least within range of whatever aftermath. Most riders would have witnessed the death of a fellow dragonrider before, however, it would still be devastating for those involved.
• Jungle Wing are out Hunting at this time, and will discover the loss of their Wingleader after being informed by someone from the Weyr.
• Mountain Wing will presumably hear word from their Wingsecond B'lye.

Others
• Many Holders and Crafters, having stayed at Fort Weyr for some time, would have experienced this before. However, it could be a first for many Hold bred Holders and Crafters.
• Candidates would be undergoing their Physical Training/Crop Tending session for the day, so many would be in the Weyrbowl to witness the event.

So, I have a whole lot of people who could potentially be in this event.

W'um - Has already been posted

P'run and Q'ellan - I will definitely post them soon, since they were watching the whole thing and reacting, and will be heading inside to the Weyrling barracks with the rest of their clutch

Inanna and B'ron - I will most likely post them, B'ron will hear the keen and run to his ledge, although there's not much he can do and Inanna will just feel really sad.

Fisk, M'dak, Elrost, Z'ryr - Would all have been witness to the event, but it's unlikely I'll post them unless I see a really good opening for them.

Iralye, X'rine, Ysveta, Y'tol, Vironethian - For various reasons, stuck inside the caves, or off site, will not be witness to the event and therefore these will probably only be posted in aftermath posts if they exist (for the riders).

Paylae, Tresrissa, Daresik - Are at the minehall, and therefore it's sort of irrelevant for them.

So first. Posts:

Wa'by will be posted asap. While he did not witness it himself, his priority will be keeping his weyrling groups as calm as possible

Sokon may be posted with, and hadn't seen the collision, though Creath reacted almost instantly to the deaths, thus occupying most of her attention.

T'vye should be posted with and is part of W'um's group.

X'kis will be posted with, though it will probably be just a reaction unless there's reason to engage him directly. (Possible B'ron interaction?)

The one's who are there but probably won't be posted unless I see a good entrance.

Oarlen - He's going to be looking at the older candidates for a demonstration of how he needs to behave, and will try to be brave for the younger ones... though anyone will be able to see he's rattled by it.

K'zaya - may or may mot have been paying NO attention to his own drills, and so got to witness the tragedy first hand. He's gonna shutdown pretty quickly. Defence mechanisms and what not.

Tayvelle is asleep, though the mourning keens will wake her, particularly when Tavlesk joins in. While curious, she's not gonna get involved unless someone draws her attention

Berlya will be in the weavers caverns and will hear the cry, but beyond sending Dreamer to confirm that her family members are safe, will not see how her presence will be useful. She will offer her condolences, of course.

The ones Who hear about it later:

D'mir is away from the weyr

Nycolus cbf caring.

Ionei is being posted, I have a post in progress, I keep getting interrupted by doing my actual job or whatever

Vanelwynne will probably be posted if Inki posts with B'ron; unfortunately for B'ron, she'll likely end up crying on his shoulder. Expecting comfort from B'ron might be a bad idea but it's her instinct.

N'aen hates to say he's unsurprised, but he's unsurprised.

Noa is likely to just go cling to her family. If W'sar isn't away, she might go make sure he's okay after she's reassured herself about her children and brother.

Pythia is out of the Weyr, but once she hears she'll return to check on the people she cares about.

Similarly to Noa, Syrena is just going to find B'nyn and attach herself to him. Too much of a reminder that riders' lives are still short ones, even without Thread.

When she hears about it, I'm sure Ellariel will be sad enough that someone died, especially the weyrling, but with no particular attachment.

Larilla and Narinae will both be sad when the news reaches them. Larilla, in particular, has the whispering of wanting Calladren to never Impress in her mind. This goes against her entire support of her brother, but there has been too many deaths and injuries related to being a Rider this year for her to be completely unworried. Her love of her brother and wanting him to succeed in what he views as success is the only thing that currently keeps the doubt as more than just a whisper.

Yaina is blissfully ignorant and thinks all four will come back when the news finally reaches her. She has faith that the dragons will find their way back and doesn't really understand why it is a bad thing even when it is explained to her and despite everyone's somber attitude about it.

Sarinea cheers quietly in her mind when she hears the news. She doesn't change her demeanor to reflect what will no doubt be a quiet blanket of horror that will settle over the Weyr that interacts with the Riders in the coming days, but nor is she stupid enough to outwardly display happiness. She is, however, saddened that someone was pulled into the mess that was trying to help the young dragon and is not happy that there is a position of authority that is no longer filled. Having seen enough of what happens when there is unexpectedly a position of power open in Hold life, she hopes that the Riders act differently and has hope that these differences she curses normally will stop any sort of struggle and political games to fill this position.

I'drya will be fishing with the other Beach and Prairie Riders and so will be there to hear the horrible chorus from the dragons and her own will join in. While not seeing what happened directly, she will pause to fly near and join the others in sorrow. I am going to try to post with her, but I have been struggling with posting in Events so if it happens, it happens.

Lokin and Zondesh won't know right away.

Zarra is aware and probably upset.

Elremmiria doesn't know, may not know until much later down the line. Would secretly wish it hadn't happened.

Tythinaden probably in the bowl, and saw it happen. Probably won't post him.

T'rel, F'erro and C'dus are out on the field when it happens, getting a close seat to the event. As all three of them Impressed just this turn they are quickly ushered away to their quarters. Their general responses are a mixture of disbelief and grudging acceptance- it was only a matter of time before someone else died.

Droissa is out on the field with her fellow candidates as well. The deaths are so sudden, without any real evidence, that it takes her a moment to react to it. Likely she'll head back to her rooms, too, to await orders and stay out of the way.

Saviavi, still in the healer hall, will be visibly upset when the news reaches her. Each death, however, makes her more determined to heal and get strong because the Weyr needs riders more than ever.

When Penderton hears of it, he's quite sad as he always is when there is loss of dragon life. He'll snuggle his whers a little closer. Bekareni, too, will mourn in her own way but will be more curious to see who is promoted and where their allegiances are.

Nealros thinks it's quite funny, so does Nieve.

J'hal has been posted, so you can see what he thinks about all this.

J'thir will be a little surprised, since R'sin was doing the least dangerous job of the whole Wing at the time, but he'll quickly be over any mourning period and pushing for a promotion.

Arrobella will probably ignore the news even if she hears of it.

Kaladesi will be making an appearance. Despite being distraught over her Wingleader's death, she will be a rock for her wing, providing comfort for the other riders. After all, death is all a part of Mother Pern's plan.

V'len, T'lor, and T'nax will all be surprised and, in time, will all give their condolences to the Jungle Wing.

T'veck, U'thar, and Araena will all be caught off guard by the death. Araena and Ceryth will be very confused about the feelings that the little red feels.

Calladren is shocked. R'sin was a great man and a great leader; someone that he looked up to.

Kyohei... well....

Sashana is a Weaver and would have heard what was going on.  She's sad at the loss of life but isn't likely to participate beyond those dragonriders she already knows.  She'll try to comfort the ones that need it and try to explain to those that have never seen this happen and don't understand what's happening and help them deal with it as much as possible.

K'mar did not witness the event, but was there for the aftermath. No post.

Callista finds out when the Wingseconds call them in from the hunt. She's devastated at the loss of yet another Jungle Wingleader, and more so because she had known him before moving south and really looked up to him. So she's taking this harder than usual. She will either post to the main IC thread or have a separate thread for her reaction. To be posted.

M'kale same as Callista. He's handling the loss more with anger at everything and everyone. Not sure if I'll post him or not.

Z'tai witnessed the event and considers this a huge loss for the Weyr. For those in his Wing who witnessed the loss, he'll be advising they follow up with one of the Healers to talk it out and get anything they have off their chest. Wing duties and drills will resume the following day as the Weyr won't run itself. Not sure if posting him.

N'iko will find out from the Mountain Wingsecond. He'll give the Jungle Wingleader a moment of silence out of respect and then continue with his duties. No post.

Phaedralena will be shocked that a man who'd been known for his skill could be gone that easily. It'll briefly shake her confidence, though she'll put up a tough front. No post.

Aldrekayn doesn't care. At all. No post.

1) I'm not dead

2) Tichroan isn't dead either

He'd be sort of grimly accepting, because of course this sort of shit keeps happening, everyone present has been doomed to hell et cetera, they're just all dying really slowly, there's no actual surprise here -- it just also still really really sucks? Because every once in a while there's a faint hope things will get better, and then boom, nope, we're still doomed.

Now get back to work.
