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

New Food Source

16.8.2590 // 5:15 pm
Things have been getting more and more difficult for the Fisher Hall in supplying the Weyr with food. With so many people, dragons, and whers that need fed on a regular basis, the native schools of fish have been gradually diminishing and then disappearing in the three turns since the move to Southern Winds. On this particular rainy day, things seem even more grim, as fish seem few and far between in the Cove. Many believe that the construction of the Southern Hope, and thus access to new fishing areas, cannot come fast enough.

And then, on toward evening, one of the boats sitting in the lagoon hauls up a startling new catch. Three fish-like creatures, each as big as or larger than a Gold wher, have been caught in the nets—and their armored plating and mouths full of serrated sharp teeth are less than reassuring. Even as the creatures struggle to free themselves from the nets, they are killed by the attending Fishers:  both to prevent them from capsizing the small boat, and in the eager hope that they can be used as food.

Once they’re brought back to shore, however, things take an even wilder turn—for some members of the Fisher Crafthall believe that they know what the creatures are. And though they are a significant source of meat, maybe the Weyr shouldn’t be eating them at all…

What does this mean?
To the Fishers and assisting dragon riders, they’ve essentially just discovered yet another aquatic monster native to Fort Island. With the overfishing of the area becoming more and more apparent, however, the implication of this discovery is clear—that the Weyr has likewise revealed a new food source to combat their problem. In the 25 turns since the Dolphineer Crafthall fell, members of that former Craft have been folded into the Fisher Hall for their similar expertise with the sea. Those old enough to actually remember the shipfish may be less than thrilled that what they see as the return of those creatures is met with violence.

Riders, Weyrlings, & Candidates
Both Beach and Prairie Wings are aiding the Fisherhall at this time of day, which means those riders will likely witness this firsthand. Jungle and Mountain Wings will learn about it after the fact as news travels throughout the Weyr. With both Weyrlings and Candidates in a block of time where they tend to complete chores, run errands, or tend to personal matters, some of the latter may be working at the Cove, and some from both groups may be drawn there by the commotion.

Crafters
Much of the initial conflict will erupt between Fishers and former Dolphineers that have been folded into that Hall since the fall of their own. As other Crafters working in the Bowl—such as Farmers and Herders—may venture down to the Cove to see what’s going on, there will likely be a lot of arguing and taking sides either for or against further interactions with these so-called sharpfish.

why must you kill me

Droissa is on the beach this evening, helping as is her usual preference. When the sharpfish are hauled in she's aghast, alongside her family that might be there. ("But their tails aren't like a fish at all!")

Saviavi is still taking it easy and recovering. She'll be curious but mostly supports the new food source, citing naysayers as conspiracy theorists.

C'dus, F'erro and T'rel won't be present but will catch word of it quickly. C'dus will try to get a look if he can, but the latter two won't invest much attention into it. F'erro, true to his nature, dislikes fish and won't really welcome more fish as a "change" in diet. T'rel is quite willing to eat whatever, barring his dragon, so he won't involve himself in any debates.

Nieve welcomes the new food source. As someone who works firsthand with food supplies, she understands the importance of the new find. She also likes having a full belly, whatever the sacrifice.

Holdfolk Penderton, Nealros and Bekareni will surely hear of it very soon, albeit with some delay. Penderton will probably opt out of eating it if he can help it, too uncomfortable with the thought just incase there's some truth to the shipfish theory. Beka and Neal will readily chow down.

Checking in! (How exciting, someone hold me.)

Y'vis wouldn't be around for the main commotion, and has mixed feelings about the outcome. While he has no preference either way to eating the creatures (a fish is a fish, no matter how many teeth it has), the reaction to it as a new source of meat is a thorn in the side of Jungle Wing being unable to produce enough meat themselves. That being said, he also doesn't like starving, so he's not going to join those suggesting they don't eat it.

T'stann will be there when I stop being dead.

B'lye will be very upset he wasn't there. Everyone else cares but not really... surprisingly Neri wants to be in the thread the most.

First off, LOUD SCREECH OF EXCITEMENT.

Yaina will be playing in the Fisher Hall as normal.

I may post with I'drya, undecided. When the news reaches them: Larilla is ecstatic of new food. Narinae is waiting for what the majority of the Riders feel before forming her opinion. Sarinea doesn't care what the food is along as it is edible and isn't a Wher or her children.

Candidates Lokin, Zondesh and Tythinaden will hear about it but won't be involved.

Candidate Sayel will probably be down there, because of reasons.

Master Harper of History Zarra will also be making an appearance. Mostly for history reasons.

Bronzerider S'den of Rayrth won't know until they return.

Holderbrat Elremmiria will find out and probably be curious but not be posted.

Calinaza will be down at the docks assisting with fishy tasks. She will be utterly aghast at the creatures. As if the River Snakes and Hunters were not enough!

Janna will be soooo bummed that she isn't down at the docks when they are brought in and that she has to hear about it second-hand.

May or may not post K'ran and/or Thealdrae in the IC thread. None of the rest of mine would have been present for the event itself.

This doesn't really concern any of mine, except maybe one or two of them hoping that these new 'sharpfish' taste a little less fishy than the usual sea-fare.

K'mar and Z'tai will be there (though not posted) at the discovery of the sharpfish. Both are more practical and see this finding of new meat as something promising for the Weyr so they are less dependent on Jungle hunts that put more people and riders in danger.

Phaedralena was there and thinks they are frightening looking with their teeth. She hates fish, so the idea of eating more fish does not sit well with her. Neither does letting them live so they can nom on her in the water. Is there a third option?

N'iko will find out later and is indifferent.

M'kale and Callista will find out later. Neither of them are too concerned, because nothing can replace true meat from the Jungle. They don't see it lasting long.

Aldrekayn doesn't care either way.

Oh, hey, Tichroan can actually do something useful here!

Because give him one look at one of these things before it's been butchered, and he's promptly going to disappear back into the Cavern O'Clutter to figure out a more effective way of killing them quickly, before they actually do capsize a boat.

(Since, after all, by the time he's gotten that look, he'll have already heard all about their capture, because of the crowd of other gawpers and gossipers.)

Kaladesi wouldn't find out about it until later that day at dinner.

V'len, T'lor and T'nax would be fascinated, but would not let it interrupt their duties.

U'thar, T'veck, and Araena will be doing their weyrling things.

Calladren has candidate stuff.

Kyohei doesn't care, as long as he can still eat.
