Guest Info Plot & Events

Current Month
1.2591 0A.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.

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.

Fruits of the Earth [ 32.01.2591; 6:10 PM ] || Event
« on: January 12, 2018, 01:17:11 PM »
Dinner at Mine Hall always held a certain wholesome weariness to it, or at least it seemed so to the Holders that had made their home there:  with none of the chaotic and undesirable traits of the company that could be found at the Weyr. There was a sense of working toward something worthwhile, something to preserve particular aspects of Pernese culture that had seemed destined to disappear in the three or so turns that everyone had been living under the thumb of the Weyr. Even if construction on the protective wall was relatively slow, scraping along, there were other markers of progress too—the appointment of Peacekeepers once again, increased independence from Southern Winds, and other, tinier waypoints.

And on some occasions, there were notes of celebration too. Such as this one, when those who had spent the day working outside trailed in, the thick metal doors shuttered for the day, and a particular atmosphere of excitement suffused the Crafters that had already heard the news. And curiosity quickly turned to excitement, anticipation:  and other, perhaps darker emotions, too, as the implications of the unofficial announcement made themselves known too.

But the Miners themselves were grinning as they joined the others at the long tables with their trays of food. “Have you heard? There’s a huge vein of iron in the deeper tunnels!”

Spoiler for OOC:
A smaller starter than normal, but hopefully enough to start getting everyone back into the swing of things after the holidays. ^_^ Feel free to NPC some Miners or Holders as needed—or some enterprising Miner PC can be the one starting the dialogue. As ever, you can check into the OOC thread instead here.

Kenna didn't even bother to hide the skip in her step when she heard the news just outside the dining hall. She was surely attributing it to the good work of the crew of scouts that she worked with, whether or not she it was actually true that they had any part in the find. The introductory vein could have been found months earlier, or yesterday, or a sevenday ago for all Kenna could remember, but it was still mighty fine news.

It may not mean much to some, even within her own hall, who just might see it as another day, another vein, more work to get on with. But this marked something much greater for the hall, and for Southern Winds in her opinion. The opportunity to... take the next step, back towards the old way of life. When resources, land and food were plentiful. This iron might not be a direct line to all of those things, but eventually, when tools could be improved, replaced, created, the rest would reap the benefits of the metal.

Slapping her own tray of food down on the table with a huge grin, she slapped the back of the miner next to her affectionately, whether they were appreciative of the touch or not. "What about that news, huh? We'll certainly be keeping our noses in the caves for a long while to come now."
