Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
3.2591 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

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."

Keron hadn’t been working in ‘The’ tunnel, but shards he wished he had been. For the longest time nothing had really happened for him. No interesting escapades, no real getting in trouble, no new companions, it was all very monotonous in the recent half a turn. Beyond the training of his two whers. That wasn’t exactly boring, but it also wasn’t… well, it certainly wasn’t this big. Iron. Something was actually happening.

It mightn’t happen fast, not like there would suddenly be a huge difference, but he couldn’t stop the faster beating of his heart, or the comfortable warmth of pride spread through him with every grin or whisper by his fellow miners. Iron. They’d found iron. And a lot of it to hear those who’d worked there tell it.

Probably all the excited exaggeration of apprentices eager to have something new to hold on to. Something new that was all theirs. This time they didn’t have to share the pride with other crafters or holders. The Miners had found it. They’d found iron!

He was sure there’d be some scout that was about to get a huge clap on the back somewhere, they’d have to search back through the records to find out who it was, and maybe there’d be a journeyman or two who’d have to apologise for not looking into it sooner. Well, maybe not, it wasn’t like the demolition crews had a lot of spare resources to go running after every scout report, but Keron could hope.

Practically waltzing into dinner, Keron took a seat at the end of one of the long tables. They’d fill up quickly, but with more and more people impressing to multiple whers, it was more polite for someone with a faire like he had to sit further down the line. According to those in his team that already had fully grown whers, his two would be about half their real size now. He was pretty proud of their training so far, really proud. Even if he’d really wanted to wait ‘til he’d been tapped to get one, it had been so worth it to get his boys when he had.

Even if they were more exasperating than his flits, which was saying something in Keron’s opinion.

Distracted by handing out food to the flits, hiding in various pockets and around his necks, then to the two whers, Erosk happily lounging on top of Kerosk as per usual, he didn’t notice Kenna’s approach until she’d slapped him on the back. Uncharacteristically in a good mood, and used to the slaps of affection more than any other kind, Keron grinned back.

“Damn right, wish I’d been there to see the looks on their faces when they found it. I’m told that Journeyman Gillik got all weak at the knees and everything.” Turning so that his back wasn’t to her, Keron ripped a bite out of his roll before asking, “haven’t seen you around much, I’m guessing you aren’t on demolitions or refinement?”

"Nope." Kenna said cheerfully as she lifted a leg to slip onto the bench beside him. "Kenna, 'prentice still, but I'm mostly sticking with the scouts for now." She'd had a couple of lessons with him before, but evidently she hadn't made that much of an impression. They even lived in the same cave system, apprentices being all shoved together as they were, but in all honesty, Kenna didn't remember his name either.

Chomping down on her dinner, she chewed with a happy grin on her face which she couldn't seem to wipe. Things were certainly looking up weren't they? Even though Kenna was the one who scouted the caves before everything came up, she'd be an apprentice for long enough to know all of the potential uses for the ore they had found.

Throwing food into the air, where it disappeared into the darkness with a flap of brown wings, Kenna grinned at the chirp which echoed down to her. Rell was certainly a weird one, but she loved him just the same. Kensk had now decided to wander his way over as well, dragging a scrapped leg which the kitchens had obviously gifted him.

"You've certainly got a hoarde here." She said with a cocked grin, nodding at the various fire lizards draped around his body. Kensk for his own duty, had appraised the fellow's whers and deemed them meh, unsurprisingly.
