Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
4.2591 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 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

Biography

Name:
Kindolin
Pronounced:
[ KIN-doh-lyn ]
Nicknames:
Kinnie (but only to family and Auntie Kay)
Date of Birth:
27.9.2560 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
High Reaches Weyr
Weyrmate or Spouse:
Kindolin would almost rather die than get married, and there will likely never be anyone she trusts enough to be weyrmates with. But you’re welcome to try.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Kindolin is not a large woman, only standing about 5’3”, maybe a little closer to 5’4” in boots. At first glance, she may seem like the vision of a proper Holder lady:  hair and clothes immaculate, conducting herself with all the physical presence of someone who is powerful and knows it. She’s good at playing as though she’s prim and proper, in the instances that it matters, but has learned to equally enjoy the moments when she can be a little more laid back and casual—particularly around her family or the Herders.

Despite her Weyr and Crafter upbringing, she favors skirts and dresses whenever she can get away with them, though she’ll bite the bullet and put on pants for practical purposes. Her hair is her pride and joy, and she wears it down whenever she can. The few bits of jewelry she has managed to scrounge up and trade for are precious to her, and it’s a rare moment to see her without them.

Naturally rather willowy, Kindolin doesn’t have a lot of drastic curves. Her bust is modest, her hips almost too narrow to bear children—which suits her just fine. While she’ll never be as brawny as Dolynsine or Ryneppa, she has worked to be strong and fit rather than soft and weak, as well as fast. Perhaps the most obvious sign that she is more than she seems is written in her scars:  she’s collected her fair share of them over the turns, variously from working with beasts, sparring with her siblings, and the more violent side of her work.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Kindolin doesn’t care whose fault it was. But rather than being born out of a desire to absolve the riders that were involved, she feels this way because there’s no point in feeling any other way. No one can go back and change the past, (as far as she knows), and burning energy hating people who are long dead makes no sense to her. Instead, Kindolin is the sort of person who was determined not only to survive the Pass, but to thrive in it, carving out a place where she and her family could be happy and stable—all whilst working toward a future that was bigger than them, too, by helping to preserve what they could from Beastcraft. She’s always looked at the larger picture in that regard, and has been high functioning since childhood. Despite all the horrible things she’s seen—and done—during the Pass, none of it has really touched her in a lasting negative way.

Response to dragon color mutations: Because of her family’s ties to Beastcraft, Kindolin views the appearance of the mutations rather practically; such things are bound to pop up in an animal population given enough time, and adaptations are often caused by stressors in the environment—which the Pass certainly was. As such, she doesn’t quite understand what all the fuss is about. She’s not likely to cross a dragon, so what does she care that some of them might be more aggressive?

Who are you...

Likes:
Cute Things : It might seem counterintuitive for someone who is as driven, manipulative, and even sadistic as Kindolin is, but she has a deep and enduring soft spot for things that are adorable—baby animals, baby dragonkin, things that never grow past the cute stage, even creatures like Wherry that are so ugly she thinks they’re cute. However, she does not feel this way about babies. At all.

Logistics : As far as places within their family’s ‘business’, Kindolin would call herself their logistician. She likes handling the minute details of making sure things get done, not only on time but in the best way possible. Rather than being boring to her, she enjoys seeing all the little pieces of a plan come together to be executed. Given the way she can quickly size up situations and people, it comes fairly naturally to her.

Massages : As someone who carries a lot of tension in their body most of the time, Kindolin has come to appreciate people with strong hands who can work out the knots in her muscles. She’d prefer it be of an intimate nature, but she’s not above asking telling her brother to work on her shoulders either.

Dislikes:
Hangers On : Kindolin will be damned before she lets someone else ride to success on her coattails. Networking is one thing, but seeking out alliances when you have nothing to benefit the potential relationship is entirely another. At least bring something to the table, or get fucking lost.

Old Clothes : As one of the younger children in her family, Kindolin has been wearing hand-me-downs most of her life, particularly when things got really bad at Fort Hold. Somewhere along the way, she developed a resentment of having to wear garments that belonged to someone else first—Kindolin wants to be important enough to have new things, nice things.

Wasting Her Time : There’s nothing quite as frustrating as realizing she’s sunk effort and resources into something needlessly. While that irks her enough on its own, she gets furious when someone else is the cause of it—and nigh murderously so if it was on purpose.

Strengths:

* MANIPULATIVE : Kindolin knows how the underbelly of Holder life functions, and there’s comfort in that; people are easy to manipulate as a rule, and with time she’s found that she’s quite good at it. Even if she has to use her looks and an act to get ahead, or lie through her teeth, none of it fazes her. Allies who cease to be useful will find themselves cast aside without a second thought—which may be a surprise to those who genuinely were taken in by what she’s told them.

* WILLPOWER : Temptation just isn’t something Kindolin will fall for. If she wants something, she’ll either get it on her own terms or not at all. In a deep and visceral way, she dislikes compromising and will avoid taking a deal just to get something if it’s going to put her in a poor position in the future. Along with this comes a steely sense of self-control and tolerance for pain.

* SCRAPPY : Anyone who thinks she’ll be an easy target because of her size and gender will find an unpleasant surprise waiting for them. Kindolin thought it was important to know how to defend herself when her family started running in less than reputable circles, and now she’s not only difficult to get ahold of, but is a quick hand with a knife too. Kindolsk may be enough to deter some attackers, but Kindolin isn’t shy about leaping into a fight either.

* MAGNETIC : Kindolin has the habit of sucking all of the air out of a room. Carrying herself with complete confidence and predatory ease, she has the power to turn heads and command attention. She will shamelessly use this fact to win friends and favors, and enjoys the feeling of having people who are drawn to her. Even better if they all but worship the ground she walks on.

* CALCULATING : Kindolin is not a woman of impulse or whimsy. Everything she does, she does for a reason—even if it isn’t apparent to anyone other than herself. And if she plays at being vapid or petty to lull those around her into a false sense of security, it’s nothing more than a front. As ever, she aims to be two steps ahead of the game.

Weaknesses:

* PRIDEFUL : Hubris is no doubt Kindolin’s Achilles heel. She always firmly believes that she’s smarter, faster, and more driven than any who might oppose her and her family’s interests. She’s never been very charitable as to the abilities and intelligence of other people, and thus may underestimate those who could actually do her harm. That, and she becomes almost single-minded in proving them wrong when someone has insulted her or insinuated she’s less than capable.

* DISHONEST : She might not quite be a compulsive liar, but it’s a narrow thing. Over the turns, she’s simply become so accustomed to living a double life that it comes as easily as breathing now. Anything she says needs to be taken with a grain of salt if you know better, and her knee-jerk reaction to any line of questioning is to deflect, deal in half-truths, or outright lie; the only exception to this rule is for members of her family and inner circle. She might tell little white lies to them, but she will never deceive them about anything major.

* ENVIOUS : If someone has something nicer than she does, Kindolin wants it to a fault. It doesn’t sit well with her when she’s not in the best position, or if there’s something of quality she can’t have whenever she wants. This is no doubt one of the things that has driven her ambition throughout her life:  wanting better standing, resources, and even lovers for herself… as well as a better life for her family and a bright future for Beastcraft.

* IRRITABLE : It’s not overly difficult to rile her up, and when Kindoliln ends up angry she stays that way for a while. She’s very much one to hold a grudge, and there are a lot of tiny, otherwise rather benign things about other people that irk her, like chewing loudly or being in the way.

* VULGAR : Those who have the chance to truly see behind her mask of polished Holder may be surprised and even offput to discover just how crude she is. Kindolin loves dirty jokes and crass humor, and swears like a sailor when she’s in private. There’s been a few times in the past, when she was younger, that she let this slip and had her reputation damaged for it. If she is ever truly enraged, this is a trap she could fall into again.

Describe Yourself:

* JACK-OF-ALL-TRADES: And predictably, master of none. Kindolin has cultivated a wide range of skills from negotiating and physical violence to a poker face, a cool demeanor, mind for numbers, and an ability to know what people want and what they fear. Something deep within her drives her to try to be the best at everything; and while there’s no argument that she is, spreading herself across so many things has come at the cost of truly excelling at any one skillset.

* BLOODTHIRSTY: Kindolin is just a little too eager to hurt people. Over the course of her family’s work, she’s developed a taste for accompanying enforcers to extract information. Even if she’s not the one directly hurting someone, it still excites the sadist within her to see another suffering, brought low, and in pain.

* MATERIAL: With a hunger for the finer things in life, Kindolin knows what quality looks like and how to recognize it. While she won’t outright snub something if there’s no better option, she prefers to have the best in all things if possible:  from clothes to living quarters, and from food and drink to bedfurs.

* DOMINATING: Never in her life has Kindolin enjoyed being told what to do. As a child, this included bucking against her parents and siblings too, but that has faded some with time; as it stands, her family are the only people who she won’t snap at if they give her orders, with the exception of Auntie Kay. Beyond that, she craves being in control at all times, even if a small part of her finds it thrilling when a lover will go toe to toe with her. Dominant she may be, but Kindolin also enjoys the volatile.

* MOXIE: Others might not expect it of her at first glance, but Kindolin is willing to do whatever’s necessary for her success, that of her family, and of the Beastcrafters. Despite her outwardly prissy appearance, she’s not shy about hard or dirty work, and her natural athleticism means she’s stronger than she looks. Whether it comes to something messy, bloody, or even unscrupulous, Kindolin has yet to find something she’ll shy away from.

The Magic Touch: Kindolin has absolutely zero desire to get married and have children. She’s thankful that her family is less traditional in these aspects, since she hasn’t ever been forced into a betrothal, and they leave well enough alone about her reproductive choices. As it stands, she enjoys pursuing a number of partners—all female.

Family...

Mother: Rank, birthdate, deathdate if applicable. If she was a dragon rider, we need to know the turn she Impressed and the name of her dragon.
Father: Rank, birthdate, deathdate if applicable.  If he was a dragon rider, we need to know the turn he Impressed and the name of his dragon.

Siblings:
[{Name}] – Sister – Born ??? – The Leader – Kyya
Oppesine – Sister – Born 2553 – The Whoremaster – SanctifiedSavage
[{Dolynsine}] – Brother – Born 2555 – The Recruiter – RaynePOTM
Ryneppa – Sister – Born 2567 – The Fighter – Inki

Extended Family:
Keassa – “Aunt” – Born 2546 – JM Herder – SanctifiedSavage
Tunarii – Sister-in-Law – Born xxxx – [{Dolynsine}]’s Wife – NPC
Tunydol – Niece – Born 2569 – The Healer – NPC
Dolarii – Nephew – Born 2577 – The Bard – NPC
Arysine – Niece – Born 2585 – The Babe – NPC

Children: None, for which she is very thankful. Kindolin is a lesbian and will only sleep with someone who could possibly get her pregnant if she can ensure she doesn’t after the fact.

Tell us a story...

* 2560-2565, Birth-5 Born at High Reaches Weyr to… (from Holder stock, but had been with Beastcraft and stationed there??)

* 2566, 6 Given a flit egg with the intention of making it easier to keep track of Kindolin’s whereabouts since she’s an adventurous little thing, but Wherry ends up being more a partner in crime than the guardian he was intended to be

* 2567, 7 Birth of Ryneppa

* year, age Mother’s death; what happens?? Beastcraft Hall fell with Keroon in 2539; if their father was trained, why did he get removed from the Craft? Was he just a more general farmer, not trained by the Hall? Their mother was actually the Crafter?

* 2570-2571, 10-11 Keassa and Beastcraft move to Fort Weyr in 2570; family not officially affiliated with them, so weren’t authorized to go; end up getting shoved in Fort Hold when everyone moves a turn later

* 2572, 12 Bonds to Kindolsk for protection; depending on when Kyya’s character first got involved with guarding the herdbeasts, I doubt Kindolin would have waited to be “of age” to jump in on that. But could have officially started helping the few Herders at the Hold, if not before then… would their father have tried to get her to marry at all? If so, I’m sure she had some words about that. 

* year, age

* year, age

* year, age

* 2587, 27 End of the Pass; move to Southern Winds; Neisoth

* 2588-2589, 28-29 Toward end of 2589, move to Mine Hall (after the Riot probably); now spend days at the Weyr helping the Herders, and nights at the Hall (more or less)

* 2591, 30-31 Bonds to Dolinsk

Wher Details

Name:
Kindolsk
Pronounced:
[ KIN-dohlsk ]
Date of Birth:
2572 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
Fort Hold
Wher Color:
Brown
Egg Description:
Kindolsk’s egg was a huge rock of a thing, craggy and heavy—and chosen because it seemed to hold the promise of a Bronze or a Brown capable of protecting a girl like his handler.
Measurements:
Mature Length: 4M
Mature Height: 1.1M
 

General Appearance...

Kindolsk is a somewhat strange looking creature even for a wher:  low to the ground with short legs, a relatively small head, and a broad, sturdy back. He seems almost stumpy in height given that he’s as large as Browns come; if anything, this only enables him to better plant his feet and keep his balance when he’s climbing, running, guarding something, or participating in a fight. What it doesn’t benefit him in is speed; Kindolsk has never been, and never will be fast, and rarely wins mating Runs as a result.

A dark liver-brown wher, Kindolsk doesn’t bear much by way of natural patterning. His ridges and underbelly are chestnut, while his wingsails are the color of worked leather; nevertheless, beyond a faint darkening on his tail and shoulders, he has a very consistent coloration. The most notable of his features are the many scars he’s gathered over the turns, from fights with other whers and protecting Kindolin. They lace his hide and wings in an uneven latticework.

Personality...

Empathetic: Gruff and deep, Kindolsk’s presence is like a growl unto itself. His ‘voice’ is rough and enveloping, not exactly comfy but reassuring for its strength. There is nothing dainty about him, and it took even Kindolin a while to get used to the way he all but shoves images into her head.

Likes: List of 2-3 likes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each

Dislikes:
People : Kindolsk is a one-person wher. He outright refuses to listen to anyone but Kindolin, simply ignoring them as though he didn’t’ hear them at all if someone else tries to give him an order. And woe to any who might try to move him without his consent. This Brown might not be aggressive just for the sake of it, but he doesn’t care for anyone but his handler. He barely tolerates her family, and he grew up with them.

Wher Details

Name:
Dolinsk
Pronounced:
[ DOH-linsk ]
Date of Birth:
1.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Mine Hall
Wher Color:
Blue
Egg Description:
Dolinsk’s egg was midsized and rippled with wrinkles; its color was a pale, even pinkish cream color. Kindolin chose it because she liked the color and thought it was cute.
Measurements:
Mature Length: 3M
Mature Height: 1M
 

General Appearance...

Dolinsk may be too large for such purposes even as a small Blue, but he will always be Kindolin’s “lap dog”. Both Kindolsk and Wherry are near and dear to her heart, but they’re a little more practical too—she bonded to Dolinsk because she idly wanted another companion, and vaguely with the intention of training him to fight. But as soon as he hatched and she set eyes on him, he’s been her darling. She dotes on him, and will let him sit in her lap as long as he’s small enough too. Even maybe when he isn’t anymore. And he always gets to sleep in bed with her if she’s alone.

Dolinsk himself is a cloudy navy blue wher with faint speckling and highlights of a deep sapphire. His headknobs and underbelly are a pale, icy blue almost pale enough to look like snow, and his little wings are largely the same color, with the faintest shading of the same navy blue as the rest of him on the trailing edges.

Personality...

Empathetic: Dolinsk’s presence is sweet and soft, like plush fur and the comfort of staying in a warm bed when it’s cold outside. He loves his handler wholly, deeply, completely, and that feeds through their bond in a way Kindolin finds endearing. He’s her shadow, always present and happy just to be hers.

Likes: List of 2-3 likes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each

Dislikes: List of 2-3 dislikes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each

Strengths:

* EXAMPLE : Explanation

* EXAMPLE : Explanation

Weaknesses:

* SEPARATION ANXIETY : Because of the fact that Kindolin dotes on him from the moment he hatched, Dolinsk will develop deep-seated anxiety about being away from her. She takes him everywhere with her anyway, and will continue to do so even after he’s grown; but in the event that they do get separated, he turns into a nervous mess, piteously crying out for her until he can be by her side again.

* LACK OF AGGRESSION : Dolinsk missed out on the genes that make for an aggressive wher. He’s submissive to a fault, and just wants to play; any who react to him with snapping teeth or snarls will frighten him, and he’ll never be good at either guarding or fighting. For all of his life, he will be very much a pet rather than a working creature.

Member Info...

Anything Else:
Dolinsk will be physically mature in 1.2593, but he probably won’t ever participate in mating Runs very much. He doesn’t have a real interest in them.

Flit Details

Name:
Wherry
Pronounced:
As written.
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
2566 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
High Reaches Weyr

General Appearance...

Simply put, Wherry is… ugly. His limbs are too narrow, his neck too long, his head too large. His eyes seem to bulge out of his head, one headknob is shorter than the other, and his tail has had a permanent kink in it since he hatched. Add to that his drab, almost sickly coloration, and he’s certainly odd enough looking to justify his namesake. Nevertheless, Kindolin loves him dearly—perhaps even more so because of his faults, and he’s just as affectionate and devoted in return.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Flits do not talk, but they can be made to parrot an important word or phrase. Use this to describe how they might otherwise communicate with their bonded with emotion or pictures, if they do at all.

Likes: List of 2-3 likes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each

Dislikes: List of 2-3 dislikes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each


Member Info...

Anything Else:
If your flit is female, please include the date that she Rises -- or will when she's mature, if she's still young. Also please note whether or not she will be a force catch. Information on Flights can be found here. Flits only Rise once per turn.

Any notes or comments you’d like to make.
