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.

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

“I bet.” Personally, Rinokan had never expressly gone with someone to the Turn’s End, or any other celebration. At times, his parents had tried to set him up with eligible young women from reputable Crafter families—insisting he spend time with them in the hopes of striking up a potential courtship and match for him as they had for his older brothers. But Rinokan had never really cared about such things, being just polite enough to keep from pissing his mother off too much and then escaping as soon as he was able to create havoc with other apprentices whose company he could tolerate.

But he took it for granted that it must be nice to attend with someone… Certainly, he liked the idea of going with P’ar. Not so much because he would visibly be spending time around a rider; that kind of posturing just wasn’t him. But Rinokan greatly appreciated the Blue rider’s company, and getting to spend an important evening like that with him sounded nice.

“Eh, probably not.” He shrugged at the next question then, since he wasn’t really sure of the answer himself. “They’re all down at the Mine Hall now, so… They’ll probably just celebrate there.” With other Crafters and the kind of life he’d left behind for Candidateship.

It might’ve seemed like P’ar wasn’t paying attention to what Rinokan was saying, though that was hardly true. He was just enjoying his meal without staring at the Candidate while he spoke. There was a moment of quiet after he answered P’ar while the Blue Rider took a slow drink of water, mulling over whether or not he should bother. Then, he naturally ended up caving and said, simply, “If you wanted to go down to the Mine Hall, I wouldn’t mind.” It didn’t occur to P’ar that if he were to take Rinokan down there, he might just want to visit his family.

They’d already agreed to spend the day together. But if Rinokan wanted to see some of his family... Well, Zeketh wouldn’t mind taking him. Neither would P’ar care where he spend the day, really. Turns End was Turns End no matter where they might decide to celebrate it. It was nothing to him if it meant that he could do something for the Candidate.

“Wouldn’t have to be for the whole day, either. If you’d just want to see them,” P’ar added. Being estranged from family was usually usual for Candidates, but there was no reason for that to be the case now if he didn’t want to be.

That offer was definitely a surprise to him. Rinokan glanced sharply at P’ar then—not suspicious, but… well, he wasn’t sure what he was. Sure, he’d taken rides from Prairie before to go to the Mine Hall, but this was different. This was a rider personally offering to take him. And on a rare holiday and day off, no less. That was no minor thing.

“Are you sure?” he asked slowly. While he didn’t want to look a gift wher in the mouth, Rinokan also felt like he should make sure P’ar wasn’t just offering out of formality. People could be weird about shit like that sometimes. And while he didn’t really think that the rider would be, it was sometimes hard to tell with people. If everyone would just say what they meant and not offer things they didn’t really mean, it would be a lot simpler. But some people on Pern were just a fucking mystery.

“I’d like that,” Rinokan added, a little softer. “We wouldn’t have to be there long, or late in the day.” On the one hand, it would be nice to get to see his family on the holiday. On the other, it would also give him an excuse not to stay too long—or the night—since he wouldn’t want to put P’ar out, and had already promised to go to the celebrations with him.

P’ar completely missed the sharp look tossed his way, too engrossed in his meal. Utterly relaxed in the moment and oblivious to the turmoil tumbling around in the Candidate next to him. He’d offered something he’d have done for anyone he knew that he liked, and he certainly liked Rinokan. The Candidate had to know that. They were sitting together, in a nook, and they’d slept together a handful of times.

If that didn’t make them friends, P’ar wasn’t sure what they were.

It was only when Rinokan asked if he was sure did P’ar glance at him. With a small smile, and a squeeze to his thigh, he nodded. “Of course. I don’t really have family in the same way you do, but I’d hope that someone would make the same offer to me, were the roles reversed.” Especially if P’ar had wanted to see them. He’d been a rider for so long he had momentarily forgotten what it was like to be land bound. If he wanted to go somewhere he just... did. Unless restricted by a superior.

When Rinokan clarified they wouldn’t have to stay long, P’ar answered with a half shrug and took another drink of his water. “I’ve no plans than to spend the time with you, so if you want to spend some of that time there, I really don’t mind. However long you like.” It wasn’t like they’d be missing out on anything. The Hall had their own celebration. P’ar wasn’t bothered about spending the time around Holders or Crafters.

The smile and squeeze to his thigh went a fair distance in reassuring Rinokan, just as P’ar’s words did. Faranth, if only everyone could be as honest and straightforward as this Blue rider. The world would surely be a lot less fucked up and complicated if that were the case.

His smile returned a little then, quiet but no less genuine. “Thank you.” Rinokan meant it quite sincerely. “That means a lot.” It might be a simple favor, even a non-issue for P’ar, but that didn’t make him appreciate it any less. He might be many things, but Rinokan wasn’t so self-absorbed as to not feel grateful when someone did something nice for him—and this certainly qualified. Doubly so for being willing to stay at the Hold for a while, given he might not know many people there.

Absently, Rinokan couldn’t help but wonder what his family would make of P’ar. He knew they had some mixed feelings about his Candidacy, but they weren’t prejudiced and bigoted like some. After all, they might be Crafter folk, but they had lived in Weyrs for a long time, until recently. Their protest was really more about his not following in their footsteps rather than any dislike for the rider way of life.
