Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
7.2591 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.

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

Canines
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:28:05 PM »
General
Similar to Earth dogs, the canines that inhabit Pern were brought across by the original colonists. They only brought a few breeds across, work dogs, tracker dogs, those which could survive what they were expecting to be a harsher environment and lifestyle than the domesticated dogs of Earth.

Sheep dogs, shepherd, kelpies, pointers, beagles, bloodhounds, greyhounds, mastiffs, all those that were frequently used in the medieval periods of Earthern times, were assumed to be the best breeds to bring across to Pern. They were brought across in various mutt or purebred forms.

As the turns passed however, these breeds became less and less as Earth would know them today. Pern breeds became trackers, hunters, runners and rounders. Which all had a variety of traits as you would expect of a modern mutt, but bred for specific roles in Pernese society.

Lapdogs are not something seen on Pern, all canines are working animals. Whilst they might have been raised by a family, they weren't a pet to be coddled. Frequently used by Holder families as farm dogs, rounding up chickens, woolbeasts, or hunting for wherries. The bigger Holds would have had kennels and kennel masters who ran the specialised hound breeding and activities for the Lord Holder and his family.

At Southern Winds
Unfortunately, like many of the animals on Pern, canines were deemed not neccessary to the continuation of life on Pern, and we either turned loose from homes to die in thread, or were used as food to save them from the horrible eventuality of thread.

They were lost in the catastrophe and on Fort Island, no canines can be found.
