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.

Southern Winds is a Mature Roleplay. This means we allow for sexual, violent content that would be found in a struggling, 9th Interval Pern.

With moderate temperatures and no storm brewing on the horizon, this proved the perfect day for what the Holders and Crafters at the Mine Hall had in mind. It was a rare day when work wasn’t as endemic there as it was at the Weyr, no matter what the Weyrfolk might think of Holder laziness. Most were not strangers to hard work and effort—after all, they had survived the Pass as well, no matter what it had taken from them. Though the promise of an Interval’s peace might be lamented, many were ready and determined to make of life what they could with their increased and newfound independence.

But the leaders of the Hold and the leaders of the Crafts knew that people still needed a break. Food might be a concern, and the Hunter attack in previous months had proven that life was still dangerous outside of the Weyr Bowl—but if the Ninth had one long-reaching effect, it was that it had enabled those on Pern to learn how to forget those things for a time and celebrate. A body could only stand so much worry and state of high alert before it needed to relax, if only for a little while. For an afternoon and an evening.

So the picnic had been arranged, Master Crafters and Hold leadership alike agreeing that the day would be characterized by an early end to shifts, save for those absolutely necessary to the functioning of the Hall. And with the midday sun beaming down on the grass and cleared space behind the halfway-completed wall, things almost seemed normal, if not necessarily ideal.

Families and friends alike had gathered, pockets of people clustering at various locations around the space to talk and eat, sitting either directly on the grass or on old blankets brought outside for the purpose. Whers still patrolled around the perimeter, or accompanied their handlers side-by-side, but they were relaxed, at ease. Some of the gentler ones were even playing with the children that chased and were chased around the clearing while their parents talked.

All in all, it was a pretty day. The continued struggles of life on the island aside, it seemed a peaceful one too.

Spoiler for OOC:
It can’t all be monster attacks and death all the time. In contrast to the Last Gambit event, this one is open to all Holders and Crafters living at the Hall—and any family or friends who may have caught a ride down there from Prairie Wing to celebrate too. Have lunch, relax, reconnect with loved ones, and reflect on how far things have come in the past turn.

As always, there is an OOC thread you can check in at, and it can be found here. :bird:

Tressie lay back on the old blanket that she'd claimed for her family to enjoy the picnic. The Mine Hall had been far too scared since the Hunter attack not so long ago. It was a scary thing to look at the doors and remember what the scene had looked like with a Hunter there. Every now and then through meals, Tressie sometimes had to check the door to make sure they were tight and closed, how they should be. No Hunter in sight.

But it was tiring being so scared all the time. And she was worried she was going to go sickly pale if she was stuck inside for any longer. It was lovely, being outside and just soaking up the suns rays, the scent of fresh wafting over them.

She hoped her family would be able to enjoy the day as well. Nyc and Nealros had children to think about. And by that she meant, that they had children to let outside and enjoy life, not keep locked away and safe in the Hall. Tresrissa was certainly not going to tell them that, but she hoped they would see it the same way. Besides, it wasn't like their family had more than enough whers to go around. They'd be the first ones back into the Hall should it be called for.

But the whers were calm. Tressisk no more tense than usual when Tressie put herself around so many strangers. So Tresrissa was not worried in the slightest.

For all that had happened and the injuries sustained by Tavisk, Tavianna was actually quite happy to go outside. If anything, the fight in the Mine Hall had made her a little more calmer about it. They didn’t always need the dragon riders around. Certainly not with the wall coming along. So long as the wher could alert them well in advance and the sight of the jungle wasn’t something that loomed so ominously, then Tavianna was quite happy to go outside.

It was nice to just be in the sun. To have her grandkids running around and playing. Tavisk was no worse for the fight either. She was a Gold and wouldn’t be cowed by another creature, even if it had been so much larger than her. Rather, Tavisk would always go where Tavianna went. Where the family went, and she would always be there to protect them.

In that, Tavisk settled near Tressie. There, she could keep an eye on the younger kids as they played with small wooden toys or, if they felt the desire, to climb around on her. Faint scars were all that remained of her fight with the Hunter before, but one had to look for them on her golden hide to even see them.

Tavianna passed a hand over her wher’s wing before she smiled at her daughter, sun bathing. Not inappropriately, of course. Then, she wandered toward where the food was being set up. Just inside the doors, of course. Just in case. Trays were provided so families could take food back to where they were sitting in the sun.

It really was nice to be out. Though it was warm, it was a nice warmth. The weyr might be suffocating in their rules and hierarchy, but they certainly were able to be outside more there. Getting to be out on their own was a nice, sweet milestone.

Tavianna brought food back to where Tavianna was sitting and called over the kids so they might grab something to eat too. “It’s a lovely day to be out,” she remarked, to no one in particular.

Spoiler for OOC:
I made the assumption that if Tavianna was out and about, the kids would be too. Hope that's fine.

A picnic? Outside? Remira was not going to waste this chance to drag Aly out with her. While it was all well and good to tend the small collection of animals that the Hall had going for it, and she probably got to go outside more than most as a Farmer, she still wanted to be able to go out and enjoy it.

A day off. Outside. With Aly.

He hadn’t seemed particularly excited or interested at first. If anything, the potential dangers had inclined him to want to stay in. Her too. It had taken some heavy handed pouting, a lot of prodding, and eventually he’d caved. Ultimately, they both knew she was going to go – with or without him – and he’d always prefer she have an escort.

Couldn’t have Remira in a social setting where she might attract too much attention. Her brother was a great deterrent of any manner of that. When he was around, that didn’t bother Remira so much.

So, it was with much delight that Remira had brought Remisk and Irask out into the fresh air and sun, with a much more reluctant brother tagging along. She’d forgone a blanket, because that didn’t matter so much to her, and she’d just found a nice spot in the beautiful sun that they could share the lunch in.

So, with Remisk trying to get Irask to play, Remira kindly asked for Aly to get them some food from the tables so they could eat together. Then she went about trying to get her overly playful green to leave her poor brown alone. Which was more or less a game to both Remira and Remisk, and a woeful experience Irask just suffered quietly through.

Spoiler for OOC:
@Lyndi Sorry about the delay in getting this started.  :happy: Hope this is good.

When his sister told him the news about a picnic being held outside, he hadn’t cared. It sounded like one of those overly happy, family-oriented type affairs under the sunshine with fresh air. That was not something he had any interest in. He was a man of the night; spending his time in a smoke-filled, dimly lit cavern that had glows enough to see the cards or dice before you, but nothing so bright as to alert unwelcome guests of their presence. Then the noise, while not loud enough to be called a ruckus, still carried so many various voices and tones that it was like a thick, constant layer of sound that didn’t allow for anything else.

So no, he’d had no intentions of making his way into the brightness that was outside. His wher were both of the same opinion as well, considering they would require goggles to be in the sun like that. A hassle, it was.

Even so, Remira didn’t let go of how much she wanted to. So much, in fact, that she threatened to go with or without him. He’d been in his fair share of disagreements with Remira—or perhaps it wasn’t a ‘fair’ share—and he knew when her stubbornness would kick in. She was going and there was nothing he could do or say to change her mind, just short of carrying her over his shoulder and locking her away. That thought came unbidden to his mind, but he tossed it away just as quickly. It wasn’t that big of a deal that he would do something that would surely piss her off with him for a length of time.

So, finally, he’d caved. Better he go with her to ensure no Hunters—creature or human—were looking for a snack. With the dangers of outside, he brought both Aldresk and Rekaysk. At this point, Rekaysk was well enough trained to listen to Aldrekayn—and only him—when there was nothing particularly exciting going on. He’d keep to himself so long as no one tried to start anything with him. It would literally be poking the beast, if they did try to start something. Because of the nature of the picnic, he put the muzzle on Rekaysk to avoid any “accidents” in case a child was being stupid.

At any underground event, he left the muzzle off. Let someone be stupid with Rekaysk around and see what happened to them. But this was different. This was…family-oriented. Even the thought of it was…weird. He supposed he and Remira were family, and their time together qualified. But he never thought of them as “family friendly”. Not with what he wanted to do to her every moment of every day.

Aldresk set himself on the edge of their spot of grass that they’d claimed, his bulk of a body taking up a good portion of space from others. He watched the shenanigans of Remira with her two wher, comfortably taking it all in through goggled eyes while the rest of him sat there motionless. Anyone looking from another angle might think a large, dirty boulder or chunk of metal might have just been left on the grass, for all he didn’t move.

Kayn filled up the two plates as Remira had asked while Rekaysk stayed focused and alert by his side. When they were full—or as full as overseeing helpers would let him considering they were unsure of the final turnout count—he wandered back to Remira and the whers, settling himself on the grass. He noticed how many others had brought blankets out with them and wondered if Remira had forgotten. He assumed she wanted to partake in this odd event to feel a bit like everyone else, just enjoying family time in the sun. Which meant, playing the part, no?

“Did you forget the blanket?” There was no accusation or anything in his tone of voice. Just a neutral question that almost sounded more like an observation than anything else.

Anyone else might have been put off by Aly’s seemingly somber mood and serious wher, but that didn’t bother Remira at all. She was happy to be outside with him. She’d moved to the Mine Hall so he could have more things to do, but she missed the weyr.

Not that she’d ever say that aloud to him.

There were more people there that shared her craft, more opportunities to be outside. To explore. The Mine Hall felt too much like Fort Hold and, if the rumors that were whispered around were true, some of the things going on were starting to resemble Fort Hold too. Remira was a little anxious about that because she really didn’t want to be pulled back into all of that. Getting separated from the gang at the Weyr had been a large weight off of her shoulders. A relief.

Now? It felt like she was putting Aly in danger of falling into that same terrible crowd. But this was the only place the Peacekeepers were being reinstated. It was only fair that they both have something to do. In that, Remira was watching her brother as much as he was watching her. She didn’t want him slipping either.

After tossing a stick some distance away to get Remisk to leave Irask alone for a moment, she turned to smile at her brother when he joined them. She’d actually been able to dress down in shorts and a simple, sleeveless top. Getting to soak up the sun was just wonderful. That and it really was quite warm out. All the more reason not to wear so much. Even her hair had been pulled up and tied back, though just for today.

When he asked about the blanket, she shook her head and sat near him. “No. I like sitting in the grass. Don’t get to often since I spend so much time inside.” She did consider a moment, stealing a plate away from him. “Though... I probably could’ve grabbed one for you...” The thought was quickly lost before she smiled prettily at him. “Either way, I’m glad you came out. It’s such a nice day! Being cooped up all the time get depressing.”
