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.

this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

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!

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.

« on: December 03, 2017, 01:06:11 PM »
Recent Events

22.10.2590 - Egg Touching - OOC
With Imyth's clutch now hardened on the Sands, the Candidates are invited for a traditional touching ceremony in the hopes of increasing their chances of Impressing when the eggs hatch.

22.10.2590 - Rider's Bet VI - OOC
Once the Candidates have finished their ceremony, the graduated riders gather to bet, drink, and have fun. Non-riders can attend only by invitation.

33.10.2590 - Imyth's Hatching - OOC
As the Weyr is sleeping, Imyth's clutch begins to shake, and the Weyr awakes to the humming of a hatching. All 12 eggs hatch without incident, their brown father Maelboroth seeming to prove himself with healthy, and newly impressed hatchlings.

34.10.2590 - Alleshask's Run - OOC
Breaking out into the howling Weyrbowl, Galleweyne's Alleshask calls the male whers of the Weyr to run for her.

37.10.2590 - Weyrling Graduation & End of Turn - OOC Graduation & OOC End of Turn
With the turn winding to a close, Weyrling Classes of 2588 are ready for graduation, and a simple ceremony in the Weyrbowl sees them all assigned to their wings. Later that evening, both Weyr and Hall turn out to celebrate Turn's End, and a night of festivities ensue well into the night and the next day.

05.01.2591 - Iluesk's Run - OOC
Midway through the evening, Iluesk of Ilue challenges potential suitors to chase for her first Run.

Post in the event thread or OOC Thread with just a sentence or two as to what your character might be doing for the various events. If you miss 5 events in a row, your account will be deemed inactive. If you are posting elsewhere but skipping the events, remember : we do not require IC participation. Simply post there under your Player account and let us know what's going on with your character.

New on the Forum

Given NaNo and the beginning of the holiday season, November was a rather quiet month for SWW. As such, there are no OOC announcements to report for the month! Keep an eye out for some in the next few days, however, regarding Kalestath's Flight this turn and some important character openings.

November just flew by, huh? Between NaNoWriMo, RL responsibilities, and American Thanksgiving, things have been busy and a bit hectic for many OOC. This sort of quietness is pretty typical towards the end of the year with so many seasonal holidays back to back, as well as the end of semester for some of you. Nevertheless, SWW isn't going anywhere! It's been almost four years since we opened now, and we're honored to still have so many people along for the ride. Even if posting is a little slower this time of year, no worries:  as ever, SWW is meant to be a relaxing, fun place.

We've also crossed over in IC time to 2591 too! It's impressive to look back on all the things we've collectively built, given that Southern Winds' IC timeline started midway through 2589. From all of us, we hope the close of 2017 treats you well, and that you'll still be here with us in both the coming year and the new turn. <3

It is nuts to think we started in 2589 and now we've made it to 2591. Time  flies, in both RL and IC apparently. And the new year is gonna roll over for us too.  :shock: Time better quit this shit.

Anyways, much love to you all that trucked through November while I sequestered myself away to write.
