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

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Arlais always dresses rather casual, with comfortable loose clothing most often in bright colors. Her bright hair is usually loose, or swept back behind her ears with a bit of oil to keep it there. She has one large Threadscore scar, covering her throat, shoulder and chest, and she keeps it hidden by covering her throat with a colorful strip of cloth and waking before her lover does after some Flight fun. She has a braid in her hair she tucks behind her ear, where she has various little trinkets threaded in, chiefly a pair of brilliant emerald wherry feathers from her first hunt as a Rider.
Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: The 9th pass had left Arlais reeling with shock and loss after her mother succumbed to the Thread. Arlais watched as Pern began to die before her very eyes, and she watched with a smile, doing her damnedest to raise spirits of others to avoid breaking down into tears herself at the loss of everything they knew.
Response to dragon color mutations: Arlais doesn't like them. At all. In all the generations of Riders, never had a Black or Red appeared until everything went wrong, so what is their purpose, other than to cause chaos and dissent in the Weyr? So, she thinks little of them aside from disruptions to the peace she so desires.

Who are you...

Likes:

*Music: Arlais loves to dance and sing along with music, thus can almost always be found bothering some poor Harper. This stems from a desire for happiness, and she's found that music can lighten the mood almost every time.

*Flirting: Arlais is a shameless flirt, however she rarely takes it beyond the playful stage, and knows when to back off another woman's weyrmate. For her, it's all in the fun of it.

*Flights: Arlais loves it when a Flight occurs, specifically Aryth's, because then she can screw the brains out of someone without having to worry about them seeing her scar through the Flight lust.

Dislikes:

*Violence: Arlais is, in her nature, strongly against violence unless it is life or death. Example being she'd gladly fight off a hunter, but not so much another Rider unless the Rider intended to kill her, Aryth or her flits.

*Pregnancy: Arlais doesn't like being pregnant, in fact has never been such and doesn't ever intend on having children. Pregnancy takes away time she believes she can better spend aiding the Wing, although doesn't look down upon Green riders who choose to have children.

*Chaos: Everything has an order, a way to do things. Things that disrupt this order puzzle and horrify Arlais, and she'd have nothing to do with things that cause upset within the Weyr.

Strengths:

* Optimism : Arlais almost always has a smile on her face and looks to the bright side of things. Even when internally she wants to break down, she will smile and keep other's spirits up, even if her own is crumbling

* Wit : Arlais has a razor-sharp wit, and isn't afraid to use it in order to pretty much smack someone back into place or help boost them up. Getting into a contest of wit with her would be a rather bad idea.

* Adaptive : Though Arlais may not like it, she can quickly adapt to her surroundings and situations that change. She may bitch and groan about things still, but she generally can deal with it all.

* Loyalty: Arlais is loyal to an utter, obvious fault. She'd throw herself in front of a Hunter to protect even a stranger, and would risk everything to save those she loves.

* Stability : Very little, if anything, can shake this woman's spirit. Very grounded and adaptable, she takes life's hurdles in stride with a wink and a smile.

Weaknesses: 5+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* Naive : She can be naive in the fact that she believes everyone has potential, has the ability to be just as important as Riders, to do and be good. She doesn't see the darker side of people, whether it's because she chooses not to or actually can't is undetermined.

* Distant : Arlais is friendly, yes, but what you don't see is the mental distance she keeps from everyone but Aryth. You would never see her break, she'd find a small, dark place for that, and because of it she's come to the realization that, for all her 'friends', she's rather alone.

* Reckless : Arlais doesn't quite seem to understand her own mortality, and can seem rather reckless at times when it matters, such as in the jungle.

* Impulsive : Arlais, for all her wit, has a tendency to speak before she thinks, and this can sometimes insult others when she doesn't actually intend to insult anyone.

* Dark Humor : Her humor can get dark, and it can get dark quick. Whether this is out of some innate desire to mourn over what has passed or not is unknown to Arlais, however she does her best to avoid making too dark of jokes.

Describe Yourself:

* Loving: Arlais is loving, whether to a watch weyr or the Weyrleader, she cares for everyone and will always greet someone(even someone she almost dislikes) with a smile and cheer.
* Silly: Arlais isn't afraid to play the jester in order to distract or get laughs from her fellow wingriders.

* Solitary: For all her smiles, Arlais is a solitary creature who tends to keep her internal thoughts to herself, and will easily, and subtly, steer the conversation away from anything too personal

* Tolerant: Say what you wish to Arlais, she will just smile and tell you when you're being an ass. As the adage goes; sticks and stones will break my bones but assholes can't hurt me.

* Strange: That Arlais can always find a reason to smile stupefies some, confuses others. It's just who she is, strange or not she likes smiling and finding reasons to be cheerful.

The Magic Touch: Arlais's weyr is covered in scraps of fabric, string, old dragon shedskin, pretty much anything she can get her hands on to decorate her weyr. AKA She's a hoarder.

Family...

Mother: Marrei born 28.02.2535, Green Wingrider, Impressed Yylith 2550, died during Threadfall 2567
Father: E'sei, born 03.09 2520, Brown Wingrider, Impressed Teyroth 2537, alive and well(adoptable)

Siblings:
Twin: Areys, born 2564, Impressed Alynth 2579(Alynth is sister to Aryth; adoptable)

Children: Nerys, born 2578, died same day due to fever.


Tell us a story...

* 2564, 0 Born to Marrei and E'sei, twin to Areys in High Reaches Weyr, 9th Pass. The girls are healthy, identical twins, something their parents considered a blessing.

* 2567, 3 Marrei dies during Threadfall,, leaving E'sei to take care of the girls. He leaves them in the safety of the creche, where a drudge by the name of Ilsa nurtures the girls and becomes their adoptive 'mother'.

* 2571, 7 High Reaches is evacuated, and there's no sign of E'sei. Arlais, frantic, searches the Weyr for her father and finds him in his weyr, saying goodbye to Marrei's memory. He takes his daughters and leaves High Reaches with the rest of the Riders, intending to never return.

* 2576, 12 Arlais is selected as a Candidate, and Areys as a Candidate as well. The twins, ecstatic, remain inseparable throughout their training as they waited for their turn to Impress. E'sei grows distant, despite Arlais's attempts to socialize with her father. Areys doesn't bother.

* 2579, 15 Arlais and Areys stand on the sands, and Arlais Impresses Aryth, while Areys impresses Alynth. Arlais is utterly smitten by the gawky Green, and happily goes through weyrling training, practically ignoring Areys until the two get in a spat, and once more are thick as thieves.

* 2585, 21 Arlais and Areys are separated into different Wings, while upset about this Arlais doesn't protest her orders. A freak accident during Threadfall leaves her out of commission for a while, and in critical condition for a few days.(Reference to the scar in appearance). During this time Areys brings her a gift; two flit eggs, one gold and one bronze, with the condition that Areys gets pick of the first clutch. The eggs kept Arlais busy while she healed, and when they hatched even more so.

* 2587, 23 Arlais celebrates the end of the Pass, and tracks down her father E'sei only to discover he had been sent out with other Riders to assess the rest of Pern. She waits for his return, however is met with a cold shoulder when E'sei comes back from the scouting trip. Confused, she flees to Areys's weyr, taking solace in the only family member she seemed to have left. When the black egg hatches, however, Arlais is one of many who show strong distrust of the hatchling, borderline hate.

* 2589, 25 Arlais was just getting settled into Jungle Wing and her new home in Southern Winds when the black dragon captured Kalestath. She watched helplessly as the event caused dissent within the weyr, a growing bitterness, anger and distrust she was powerless to stop without making herself out to be sympathetic to the Black Riders. So Arlais remained silent, watching the growing dissent between her Wing and those that didn't care for or liked the Blacks and Reds.

----

Marigold chittered at Beryl annoyingly as another bronze was giving her attention. So Beryl took the hint and left her.

Arlais sighed at her handsome little bronze. But she perked up. He wouldn't be alone for long, she was sure. A smile coming to her face. Her handsome Beryl would find a companion for the day.

Arlais on the other hand was seeing to bathing her lovely green Aryth. She ducked under the water to cool off, having bathed most of Aryth already. She found a dry patch of hide and made sure to scrub good there too to get the dry hide off of her green. She would make sure to apply ample oil to that spot when it was time to oil Aryth.

Dragon Details

Name:
Aryth
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
03.23.2579 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Oraith, Gold
Clutch Father:
Teyroth, Bronze
Measurements: Listed in the dragon information.
Mature Length: 23 meters
Mature Height: 4.6 meters
Mature Wingspan: 38.18 meters

General Appearance...

When Aryth had been born, she was a horrid vomit-green, with a head too small for her body, wings too short and tail pretty much a stub. As she matured, everything lengthened, however her wings always remained rather small, her head refined and delicate-featured, with slender horn-knobs and a sloping nose. Her feet are dainty, and her legs are long and slender, and her tail grew out rather long for her body size. By maturity her hide was dappled in an incredible way, with dozens of shades of earthy-green and emerald shimmering on her hide, with the undersides such a pale green as to be silver, with specks like stars.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Aryth's voice is pretty much soft, whimsical and whispery. Basically, very, very feminine.

Likes:
Flattery; Even out of Flight, the Green's opinion of someone can easily be swayed by flattery to herself or to her Rider.
People; As social as her Rider, Aryth is a rather vocal dragon, who enjoys talking with others besides Arlais(not that any of them could compare, of course.)
Flits; Aryth is in love with the flits, and considers them the closest things to her own babies, and they're always a source of pride for her.

Dislikes:
Fish; She finds it bland, and hunting fish with Holders is even more so. Thus she's overjoyed that Arlais and her are in Jungle Wing, so they don't have to deal with, quote, 'scaly, slimy, ugly fat things... and fish' end quote.
Female Riders; Aryth is extremely protective of her Rider, and isn't afraid to make her feelings known if a female Rider poses a 'threat' to her own Rider's current fling.
Dirt; Aryth cannot stand being filthy. First thing in the morning is an oiling, last thing before bed is a scrubbing to get the dirt and filth of the day off

Strengths:

* Flight : Because of her short, narrow wings, Aryth is extremely maneuverable in flight, and takes full advantage of this when hunting, or even just playing.

* Loyalty : Aryth, like Arlais, wouldn't hesitate to lay down their lives for everyone and anyone in the Wing, and would do so with light hearts.

* Ferocity : When it comes to it, Aryth is utterly ferocious, a dervish of fangs and claws, all temper. This mood is rare, but when it happens it's wisest to give the little Green a wide berth.

Weaknesses: 2+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* Vanity : Aryth is vain to the point of obsession, and will spend all her free time preening.

* Gullible : Aryth can easily be persuaded with flattery and praise by virtually anyone, and would hold said person in high regard... provided they continued the compliments.

* Strenth : Aryth is not strong, period, built far more for speed than she is strength or endurance. In fact, most greens would be stronger than her, however she prefers to think of herself as the 'fastest' green.

Flit Details

Name:
Marigold
Pronounced:
Mer-ee-gold
Color:
Gold
Date of Birth:
03.06.2585 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Marigold was born incredibly thin, with short legs and wings. She has remained that way, with a tiny head, long neck, long body and long tail, this Arlais affectionately calls her 'my little tunnelsnake'. Which she does not care for. She is incredibly small for a gold.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Marigold is a chatty Gold, and generally gets her point across, trasmitting images and impressions fairly well. She's intelligent enough to serve as a messenger also.

Likes:
Drama; Any sort of upset immediately has Marigold immediately interested, and more often than not, amused.
Praise; Like Aryth, Marigold is vain in that flattery and praise always has her crooning with delight(except during flights).
Beryl; She allows no other Bronze to fly her but Beryl, and finds his more immature nature endearing.

Dislikes:
Solitude; Hello abandonment complex hi how are you? Marigold left alone is a very bad thing, thus the Gold is often perched on Arlais's shoulder.
Music; For some reason music grates on her nerves, and she throws quite the mental hissyfit if it doesn't quit.
Being told no; She is a gold damnit, and believes she should be treated as such, no matter her size. Of course this vanishes whenever a Gold dragon is around.

Flit Details

Name:
Beryl
Pronounced:
Bar-ill
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
22.02.2588 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Beryl is a deep copper-bronze, with more yellowish tint on his legs, and more of a red tint on his wings, head and belly. He is compact, with a large head and short tail, wings and neck, and a rather unusually long muzzle, when at birth he was as long and thin as Marigold. That quickly changed with maturity, however.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Growling and deep, like two stones rubbed together.

Likes:
Marigold; The Bronze has always been smitten by his bonded's little queen, and showers her with presents and praise.
Flight; While Marigold would rather sit on Arlais's shoudlers while she and Aryth fly, Beryl plays in the air around them, enjoying the flight with his bondeds.
Aryth; The Green was pretty much a mother to the flit, and he leaves her and Arlais little fleshy presents as a sign of devotion and capability.

Dislikes:
Competition; Aryth, Marigold and Arlais are, to Beryl, his, and he'd do his best to chase away those he deems unworthy.
Commotion; Unlike Marigold, Beryl would rather sit in a corner and wait for drama to go away.
Being Clean; Beryl is always dirty, unless Marigold nears her time to rise. Otherwise, dirt all the way.
