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!

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.

To Fancify Later!

Peter Mensah, Ista, Blue, http://southernwindsweyr.net/index.php?topic=641.msg27933#msg27933

Impression age 17, current age 57, born 2533, impresses at High Reaches 2550, nb: born three years after fall of Bitra, evacuated Ista at sixteen, impresses soon after at High Reaches.

Ista falls in 2549 BR, 41 turns ago, Ista fails to adequately defend coastal in 2543, and fails to adequately supplement Igen in 2545. Ista Hold is decimated by threadfall, in contrast to Telgar Hold, may have some tensions in feeling there? Ista -> High Reaches (2571, but hold goes in 2568, nb Nabol alienation) -> Fort ->
 Southern (2587)

Your Reflection...

Appearance: D'rach has aged remarkably well, unfortunately, his fashion has not. Preferring to largely remain in riding wherhide, D'rach is rarely in more casual clothes, however, they provide as much interest as his riding gear. He has one look, and it is conservative, quiet in colour and cut. The only exception to this is a small metal band he wears on his fourth finger.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: D'rach was born three years after the fall of Bitra Hold, and has known nothing except the 9th Pass Catastrophe. It's simple to say this isn't how Pern has always been, but raised in the Catastrophe, D'rach sees the inevitable fallback of Holds and Weyrs as part of his life. It was never a question of if a Weyr would fall, but when. Despite a dogged pragmatism, and a strong attitude of simply taking it in stride, D'rach has a rather defeatist view of the future of Southern Winds.

Response to dragon color mutations: S'bok's age is of some concern; a weyrleader has no business being so inexperienced in D'rach's opinion. However, the colour mutation is whilst strange,
 not a concern to D'rach. Afterall, Black Dragons are as strong as any bronze, and Neisoth has bred gold and bronze to Kalestath. Why be concerned? D'rach maintains.

Who are you...

Likes: List of 3-5 likes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each

Dislikes: List of 3-5 dislikes here, with at least one sentence of explanation for each


PRAGMATIC > Whilst not given to unlikely optimism, D'rach instead keeps a weather eye on what is likely, and what needs to be done. He takes a practical approach to both deciding what is a problem, and then to handling it. If it isn't broke, D'rach spares little thought for a matter, but can offer considerable, and direct insight into solutions, regardless of size.

DISCERNING > Selective, even particular, D'rach offers fair, but unerringly exact criticism to weyrlings, and wing riders alike. He tolerates inexperience, disdains ignorance, and outright suffers naïvette. Quick to correct, but just as quick to recognize improvement, D'rach is unfortunately a little taciturn with praise.

TEMPERANCE > D'rach is not an indulgent man, whether that is food, drink or possessions. He does, however, take an almost smug pride in his own self-discipline.

CALM > Cool under pressure, D'rach rarely angers. At times, he shows a strong instinct for mediation, but more often than not, prefers to simply leave other people to their matters. Despite that, he remains level-headed regardless of situation, and can be relied upon when needed.

PRIVATE > D'rach's devotion to his own privacy manifests in a deep respect for other people's privacy. Not necessarily physical privacy - such things are difficult in close quarters, and Weyrs both - but emotional, and personal. In fact, D'rach firmly believes in the close intimacy of the Weyr, respecting other people's emotional space is more important than ever.

Weaknesses: 5+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

PESSIMISTIC > Whilst D'rach doesn't exactly begin every conversation with a certain, and depressing statement about how the Southern Winds venture is likely to suffer the same fate as the rest of Pern, it colours his attitude considerably. Although D'rach likes to think of himself as being reasonable, and practical, his pessimism isn't helpful, or insightful, just miserable.

CRITICAL > Although fair-minded, D'rach is the first person to criticize a mistake. Difficult to please, and frustrating in his harshness, D'rach has a real problem with providing encouragement to others. His comments may be useful, but the manner in which they are delivered, and the perfectionism behind them can be unbearable at times.

OLD-FASHIONED > Although D'rach is fair-minded about the Black mutations (after-all, they breed bronze and gold), he objects to a Weyrleader who is not a bronze-rider. As Pern falls, D'rach feels tradition, and quiet dignity are what benefits the Weyr best, neither of which he feels is exemplified by S'bol.

COLD > Distant, even diffident, D'rach comes across as a very passionless man, and indeed, he may well be. Prizing rationality, and perfection, D'rach makes very few friends as a somewhat icy, and definitely sharp-mannered man.

PERFECTIONIST > A critical man, D'rach holds himself to the same high standards he levels at others. As a result, D'rach can sometimes take too much time on something that was probably fine the first time.

Describe Yourself:

* HARDWORKING: ----- It can never be said that D'rach does not do his part. Far from it, if there is work to be done, D'rach will quietly, and without complaint, shoulder it. He is of the opinion that a Weyr operates not by each person doing "their job", but by the Weyr's jobs being done by everyone. Not given to resentment, D'rach is extremely quick to correct laziness amongst weyrlings.

* STEADFAST: ----- Calm, strong, and dedicated, D'rach can be counted on by any member of the Weyr. Although his critical, or cold manner can indicate to others that he dislikes them, D'rach is remarkably even-tempered, and will readily and willingly stand by those around him. The longer people come to know him, the more pronounced this becomes to them.

* PATIENT: ----- Although D'rach can be difficult to please, he is also willing to wait as long as someone is willing to work. If it takes weeks for someone to get it right, then D'rach is right there with them. Whilst he has trouble encouraging, his supportive presence, and determination can be inspiring in its own way.

* PROUD: ----- A man of self-discipline, and self-perfectionism, D'rach is unfortunately extremely proud. A fact that is perpetually lost on himself. He is prideful of his hardwork, prideful of his attention to precision, prideful of his own restraint, even prideful of self-denial. He is a man who has seated himself on a high runnerbeast of superior feeling, and really has very little idea, even when he becomes outright smug.

* RESPECTFUL: ----- Although prone to hubris, D'rach is respectful of the space and authority of others. He may disagree with the untraditional weyrleader, but D'rach would sooner fly Irith between than defy S'bol. Oddly enough, D'rach's sense of respect and deference to the space of others, as well as his fair-handed manner has given D'rach a good reputation amongst Hold, Hall and Weyr.

The Magic Touch: If there’s anything else you’d like to add, like habits or an addiction, please add it here.


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, rank, birthdate, and deathdate if applicable. If any were dragon riders, we need to know the turn they Impressed and the name of their dragons.

Children: Given the nature of Pern, most dragon riders will have some manner of children, especially around the ages of 14-16, as that is generally when holders begin to pair off and get married. It is highly unlikely, and very rare, that someone will make it to the age of 20 with no children.

Tell us a story...

This is the perfect place for you to write out your character’s history. Dot points work out best. So list the important events in their life, a small description of what happened, and their emotional reaction to the event with no more than 5 turns between each event.

* year, age Event

Give us a taste of your character and a sample of how you roleplay. No real length limit.

Member Info...

Anything Else:
If your dragon is female, please include the dates that she has Flights -- or will when she's mature, if she's still a weyrling. Also please note whether or not she will be a force catch. Information on Flights can be found here. Most Greens and female Reds fly 2-3 times a turn; we will make allowances for fewer or slightly more, but the reason needs to be explicitly stated.

Once your character has been approved, you can simply enclose your dragon's dialogue in a BBCode of their name -- [dragonname]like so[/dragonname]. This custom code will be created for you after approval.

Any notes or comments you’d like to make.
