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

Rules for Member NPCs

With the advent of our first pre-SWW past event, we’re now also unveiling a new feature—member NPCs.

In contrast with regular characters that require a full app, member NPCs (or MNPCs) are side characters that require only a shortened, simplified version of our application to be played. They can include individuals for past events specifically for that event, characters that are deceased at the current date on Southern Winds, or people who you want to play for extra flavor in a thread, but don’t necessarily want to put up for adoption:  such as young children related to one of your PCs.

Rather than create separate character profiles for each MNPC, we will create one MNPC account per player upon request. This will ensure that each individual member can curate their own posts, but without creating a large amount of superfluous character accounts. Each one will be labeled “[Your Name]’s MNPCs” according to who they belong to; thus, for example, “SirAlahn’s MNPCs”. If you haven't checked into an event with an MNPC, please PM Southern Records or Weyrhandler if you would like an account set up.

This is not meant as a way to circumvent our character approval process; as such, MNPCs carry the same restrictions as other characters—no HADs, dragonless riders, or the like—and also have a few accompanying rules of their own. We’ve put these limits in place to allow you all the greatest amount of flexibility with potential MNPCs you want to explore, while keeping it fair for everyone.

MNPC Restrictions
  • MNPCs cannot be characters currently up for adoption; and, once they have been played as an MNPC, they can never be put up for adoption.
  • If you wish to start playing an MNPC like an official character, they will need to be apped as one. Only you—the player who started playing them as an MNPC—can app them as an official character.
  • MNPCs cannot be Craftmasters or members of Weyrleadership or Hold leadership.
  • Likewise, they cannot be part of an exclusive character group, such as Masters in an established Craft or Senior Journeymen in a Hall-less Craft. They cannot take a selective position that an actual PC could occupy.
  • Outside of official past events, an individual MNPC can only be involved in one thread at a time. If you wish to include them in another thread, the previous thread will need to be closed first.
  • Slain MNPCs will not count toward the “Harbinger of Death” award for killing a character, nor any other egg award.
  • MNPCs cannot use face claims or play bys, as we want to leave them available for officially apped characters.
  • MNPCs also cannot claim creatures from the bank, or request them from other members on the site.
  • Each member is in charge of keeping track of their MNPCs, as the staff will not be doing so. We'd suggest doing so in your plotter, tracker, or otherwise in the Journals board.




MNPC Post Format

Posts with MNPC accounts will be formatted a little differently than regular character posts. Each MNPC post will begin with a copy of the truncated app for the character being played, so that it’s easier for other players to keep track of which character is being used in which post. It will be followed by a horizontal rule break—[*hr] without the *—and then the actual post itself. The shortened character app will be enclosed in [*mnpc][*/mnpc] custom BBCode. You can find an example of this format and the code to replicate it below.
