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!


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

[ 31.3.2563 ] Flashover

Flashover

31.03.2563 // 11 am

Since y’all seem to like riots, we decided to give you another. This time, we’re setting everyone loose on the infamous Nabol riots! This is an event that still colors SWW’s history pretty strongly, heightening tensions between Weyr- and Holdfolk and serving as a reminder of just how bad things sometimes got during the Pass.

How does this event work?
It functions just like any other event, with the exception that it’s set in the past. However, these are still canonical, which means that we can’t have any ridiculous hijinks. It also means that only characters who could reasonably participate can join; for example, a character that’s currently only 12 wouldn’t have been born yet. And in this instance, only those living in Nabol—or visiting from High Reaches Weyr—would reasonably be in attendance.

While the event itself takes place in the past, it also advances the current timeline. As such, you can now post threads up to 31.3.2591 without violating the “no posts past the current event” rule.

Things to Keep in Mind
Here’s a list of some facts about the Nabol riots as a whole since they might be helpful for posts:
  • Nabol has been getting more and more crowded over the turns, especially with the fall of Crom in 2561. This has resulted in less food, fewer jobs for native and unskilled Nabolese as higher-qualified Holders move in, and a lot of resentment. The biggest conflicts are between Nabolese Holders and those from other settlements and the friction between Holders and riders who many see as failing at their purpose to protect Pern.
  • The group of riders is fairly small, but also open to play:  a few Search riders, and some on other colors to help transport the tithe and guard it since the tensions in Nabol are well-known. They are led by a Bronze rider.
  • For this event, the current Nabolese Lord Holder is Vandrae. Arrogant, greedy, and corrupt, he has recently alienated High Reaches Weyr by openly accusing the riders of being responsible for the catastrophic Pass. Nabol’s Peacekeepers are basically his personal guard and enforcement squad, and they are feared by many Holders. Vandrae loses his second son, Hedven (17 turns), during the riots, but he and his oldest son, Verran, escape to Ruatha.
  • The riots last for many days and eventually turn into looting and all out violence. Many families pack up and brave Threadfall to nearby Ruatha in hopes of better conditions. After about a week of unsuccessful attempts to get Nabol back under control, the Lord Holder declares the Hold closed and the remaining people are officially evacuated. These individuals will be better off and more likely to survive, since High Reaches riders reluctantly show up to help them—notably, the Wings don’t land:  they simply fight Thread in the air without offering further assistance.

None of my PCs have complimentary timelines and so I will taking the prompt of the scared newly-searched and MNPCing one of them. :3

Qirelai
Age:
2551 // 12 turns
Rank:
Candidate
Physical Description:
*Skinny and malnourished
*Dark haired and light eyed
*Wearing varying degrees of clothes that don't fit together, nor do they fit her. Ragtag bunch of hand-me-downs.
Personality:
*Scrappy - Qire has always done whatever she had to do in order to survive. Her days have been spent with a dagger against her thigh and her nights with one under her head.
*Loyal - If you succeed in gaining her trust you'll have a loyal friend for life. Qire always repays her debts.
*Dreamer - As much as outwardly she's always spoken about keeping a realistic view on life, she's always harboured a hope for a better life.
Backstory:
Qirelai was your typical Nabol Hold street rat. Born into the life of drudgery with no real way out except into the streets. With so many other, and much more experienced refugees coming into the Hold, even the life of a drudge was looking less and less reasonable for Qire's future. Quick with her hands and quick on her feet, Qire was quickly absorbed into a gang, but she purposely stayed away from some of the less... tasteful jobs that were brought their way.
She didn't seek out the dragonriders, didn't hear of their arrival, just happened to be skirting through the backstreets as a blue flew overhead, and the swooshing of the wings as the dragonrider landed to seek her out was the only thing that alerted her. After she got over the initial daze of seeing a dragon up close and personal, Qirelai didn't hesitate to accept search. Collecting her meagre belongings, Qire slunk her way to the courtyard for their departure. 
Intended Outcome:
Injury is fine - staff or player is fine. Porque no los dos?
Medium serious, not something that will cripple her permanently, but hard core scars? Ugly, ugly wounds which will play up for the rest of her life? Yes please.

None of my charries have timelines that match up though if anyone's interested in a past thread reacting to the riots, X'kis and Maelboroth are weyrlings at High Reaches Weyr. :D

I'll work on an MNPC for the event though ^^

One search rider for rioting and mayhem.

D'rak
Age:
2539 // 24 turns
Rank:
Searchrider - Blue Quorith
Physical Description:
*Tall and lean
*Dark almost black hair, dark brown eyes
*Wearing well worn leathers, but clearly still in good condition.
Personality:
*Curious - He loves seeing and visiting different places. He's often wistfully thought that it's a pity he wasn't born a hundred turns earlier.
*Sarcastic - He's quick witted and any less than intelligent comments will gain a witty response, because he just can't let the moment pass by without making sure he's rubbed in that they said something rather silly.
*Hot headed - If there's something going on he'll often be the first to respond to it as he jumps without thinking and only regrets it later when his brain has had chance to catch up.
Backstory:
D'rak, (called Dirakal), was born in High Reaches Weyr, his mother was a cook in the caverns, his father was a brown rider. He was searched at the age of 12, but didn't impress until he was 15. As is usual he was immediately in love with the blue dragon which tripped to land face down in the sands at his feet and he couldn't quite remember why he'd even dreamed about riding a bronze. His Quorith was tagged as a search rider when he started giving D'rak hints about who to put marks on for impressing.
Searching and collecting Tithe is getting more dangerous to be sure, but this was just another routine pick up. The children that presented themselves, often refugees from the look of their clothes, were generally quick to accept a search, no doubt thinking of the tithe that was going back to the Weyr. They had a solid group gathered that Quorith liked and D'rak was looking forwards to getting back to the Weyr.
Intended Outcome:
Whatever happens, happens.
