Guest Info Plot & Events

Current Month
8.2591 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.

[ 02.7.2589 ] Volunteers for Steward & Headwoman
« on: March 18, 2014, 07:33:33 AM »

02.7.2589 // 1 PM

Now that a location has been selected for the site of First Hold – and the Lord Holder has succeeded in wresting some power away from the Weyrleader and Weyrwoman in the interest of helping the Crafters and former Holders – the time has come for construction planning to begin. Toward that end, Maeron has called yet another meeting for those who wish to attend. In this case, he is calling for volunteers once more.

Every successful Hold needs a Steward and a Headwoman. While each of these roles takes on different tasks, both are instrumental in managing a Hold. They will work closely with one another, as well as Maeron, the Crafters, and the Dragon riders to ensure that First Hold meets the needs of everyone who wishes to live there. Right now, Maeron is asking for volunteers (or nominations) to be considered for the roles of Steward or Headwoman. Those who are entered into the consideration will be chosen by Maeron, the Crafters, and to some degree by the weyr’s leadership – largely based on their achievements and their current relations with others in the weyr.

The IC Thread details the specifics of the event. While your characters may not attend for one reason or another, they'll likely still respond to rumors and hearsay about the meeting and the current relations between the Holders and Riders. Your character can attend the meeting, hear about it from someone else, or make another detailing the importance to them about this event. Additionally, they may also volunteer or nominate someone they think would be a good choice to fill either the Steward or Headwoman slot.

Create an NPC! Or a Character!
The staff of Southern Winds are asking YOU to submit characters for this event! Ideally, those who wish to be considered for this slot will fill out a character application and note them here or respond in the IC thread as to their interest. However, if you don’t have the time or inclination to fill out a full character profile (or do not wish to have the role for one of your characters), you are more than welcome to write up an adoptable NPC and post them here. Their profile should be short, detailing the skeleton of their personality, their name, and maybe a quirk about them or their age. These profiles should look similar to those in the Adoptable NPC list. Prior to the event where Maeron and the other ranked characters choose those to fill the slots, you are free to submit as many characters as you like. Submissions will close when the new event is to be posted -- at the beginning of the next In-Character month. PC characters will be considered over NPC characters.

The Steward is a highly administrative position. He (or she) is the one who will be making the small, day-to-day decisions of managing a Hold that the Lord and Lady Holder do not have time for. As such, they should be trustworthy, organized, and have some initiative. The person in this role will largely be responsible for organizing the supplies and resources necessary for the running of the hold. Once this character becomes a PC, they will have the same activity requirements as Maeron.

While still a highly administrative position, the Headwoman (or Headman) manages personnel more than resources. He or she will be responsible for keeping relations smooth between the Crafters, Holdfolk, and Weyrfolk – such as coordinating with the Steward for supplies, workers for various tasks, and meeting with the weyr leadership to determine how protection of the Hold will be handled. This position requires someone who is good at organizing and interacting with people, and efficiency. Once this character becomes a PC, they will have the same activity requirements as Maeron.

Characters Who Have Participated

IC Thread

We ask that all ranked characters have some manner of reaction to this monumental moment. What do they think of the Lord Holder’s continued project, and the people who have been promoted to work so closely with them? You may post in the thread, in a new thread as a reaction, or in this topic here to detail what your character might do.

Otherwise, standard event participation practice applies. Post in the event thread or here giving us a sentence or two as to what your character might be doing at this time. 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 here under your Player account and let us know what's going on with your character.

M'rek, O'sir, Finnmaghaine, L'nal, and A'lori will likely not be attending because they are too busy, or don't see it as any of their business since they won't be living in the Hold. In L'nal's case, he simply doesn't care.

Niphredon and Tyldas will be in attendance, of course. Erieen probably would just to keep abreast of the events in this process.

Tianaice will probably not be, as she'd be doing chores or the like.

Eimerra will be staying out of this, as it isn't really any of her business. She will be keeping up with what's happening by talking with others who attend though.

Sh'lon will of course also be talking with people and know all about it.

Shenzani doesn't give a crap, so long as nobody nominates her mother.

I shall be making an NPC!  :happy:

But. Otherwise. My list of bitches.

Sr Weyr Woman Halirina does not care and doesn't want anything to do with Maeron anymore than she has to. I doubt she'll even give a thought about this meeting.
 Harper Sevastjan is present and accounted for. He'll want to watch.
 Candidate Sethunya will want to be there, but given the time she'll be in class. :C
 JM Herder Keassa will be there. I doubt she has any suggestions. I might use her to suggest my NPC.
 Blue Rider C'ace is staying out of holder things unless prompted otherwise. He doesn't want to get in trouble. Again.
 Bronzer L'ale gives no shits.
 Green Rider Niema will be minding her own, rider, business.
JW. Healer Loressa is curious, might pop up, but I doubt she'll say much. She doesn't even know people. :C

Carayia will be with Vesith doing what weyrlings do. Or sleeping out in the surrounding fields. Cause Vesith loves those naps.

A'tor's birthday!!! And his ass is still under wraps (heheh) in the Healer Hall. So don't expect him to be there, at least, not without a healer right behind him with a knockout agent.

Ard'on will be minding his own business. The Holders can do what they want.

Vanelwynne will likely be avoiding this meeting so as not to murder offend anyone. Plus, she has better things to do then deal with their foolishness, like deal with her pregnant dragon.

K'mar will not be involved as this does not require his attention. He tries to stay out of Hold business when possible.

Evesa will probably just hear the news from Seriath about how the meeting goes. Since the green will be eavesdropping or gossip-mongering with the other dragons anyway...

To those who still might be looking to get in applications or NPCs for the Steward or Headwoman positions, you've got about a week left to do so. :3

Both Esmyond and Osaiyes had heard numerous rumors flying about faster than a firelizard filled with klah. Both had a very similar thought on the situation. It's none of their business really, and hopefully it will all work out for the best.

T'yod will yet against be purposefully absent.  Supporting Halirina and all, now that he knows about this 'rebellion' for the holders and crafters to turn against the Weyr.  Most likely he will be stewing wherever he is, wanting to know what is going on and just what those holders are plotting but not attending.  He might try and make an appearance at the end, if he has no duties, in disguise of course.  Not that anyone will think he isn't a rider.  But he needs to figure out what, exactly, these rebellious peeps are plotting. 

Iseult Furious at the way the holders and crafters turned on the dragonriders at the previous meeting, she has no intentions of going.  She discovered her sister planned on going and staged an 'emergency' that required her sister at her side.

Arianr originally planned to attend the meeting but first received word that Iseult had been gravely hurt.  Naturally, she rushed to her sister's side only to discover that she was only pretending to be sick.  As always, she went along with her sister's story because it was the only way she could think to keeping the drama for getting out of hand - especially since their father was called out as well and missed the meeting too.

Sebek attended the meeting and is very interested in the movements to create a new hold.  While he is not particularly interested in who gets either position, as long as they are worthy, he is seeking opportunities to involve himself with the effort to build the new hold.
