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

Biography

First Name:
Lorna
Nicknames:
Lo, Headwoman, Boss-Lady
Date of Birth:
1.5.2561 Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr
Weyrmate/Husband/Wife:
none.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: She's a practical lady who wears clothes that can handle her long hours and varied workload. She's elbow deep in most chores - from deep caves to upper weyrs so things are durable and made to last. She prefers bright colours - they make her easily spotted in a crowd - and designed for work not looks. She often layers as well as accessorizes with her shoulder bag (with her essentials including notation pad).

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: She was busy - she dealt with her feelings her own way. It included a lot of grieving for lost friends and colleagues and the world as she knew it. She threw herself into work, and the pleasant experiences she had time for. She hasn't come to hate their new lifestyle but she has found it hard to replicate some of the things she grew up used to like meals. She is scared that culture will be lost because so many skills, materials, and foods cannot be accessed now. She also has no tolerance for deep seated hatred being fostered by others against the weyr for its inability to avert a planetary disaster. Her easy answer to people holding onto hatred is to ask that they stop dwelling in the past and move on.

Response to dragon color mutations: Unless they eat more - she doesn't care. Really - although the mutations deeply disturb many of the traditional riders her response rests on whether they can serve a practical role, whether they consume more than their fair share for that contribution, and whether their riders can be trusted to have a level head in the leadership. She isn't keen on someone so young being weyr leader - not because of the age but because of the experience. Too much has become new for many of the holders and weyrfolk - and she believes an older more experienced bronze should have won that flight. It would have reassured people who needed that reassurance. But beggars cannot dictate Flight results and Lorna must contend with the various factions vying for the weyrwoman's attention. She cannot find the time nor energy to care about the new colours unless they pose a significant threat - for which she has not seen evidence yet.

Who are you...

Likes:

*Noise: She loves a good party - with noise and laughter. Silence often strikes her as the absence of life - and she's had quite enough of that.

*Babies: Pernese or dragon - she goes all out around babies. She has great difficuly carrying children to term and so overcompensates by raining affection on the children she has as well as the others in the creche.

*Order: A little chaos is never completely unwanted - but she prefers certain realms in her life to be organized to some degree. Order lends the weyr to success more often than not.

*Food: With foodstuffs limited to what has been brought or found on the island, she is tickled by the range that the kitchen is capable of making with what they have to work with. Food is an experience she enjoys!

Dislikes:

*Laziness: Perhaps this is headwoman 101 - but she expects people to shoulder their fair share of the work.

*Wastefulness: Bad things happen to weyrfolk that waste and she finds out. There's plenty to go around with everyone get's their portions. If anyone has a problem with the rationing they can take it up with her.

*Bullies: The only thing pernese should be bullying are Hunters and stains out of laundry. BUllying of dragon or person needs to be set right.

Strengths:

* Thick Skin: She isn't loved by everyone all the time, and can handle the nasty remarks muttered about her from both weyr, craft, and holder folk.

* Methodical Mind: It is her best physical attribute - and is constantly at work besides during very intimate moments. She is a strong intellectual despite the times and her learning.

* Sociable: She is no shut-in. She will opt for some leisurely time in lieu of sleep even on her longest days. She doesn't sleep much anyways!

* Energetic: She has the drive to keep long 18 hour days no matter the task. She's young - why shouldn't she work hard?

* Authoritative: Although she wasn't born or Impressed to a position of authority now that she has been elected to the task she can handle it quite well. She pushes no limits that aren't flexible.

Weaknesses:

* High Expectations: She holds herself to high standards and does the same for others. This doesn't always work out in her favour - and she finds herself disappointed when she has faith in someone who doesn't hold muster.

* Workaholic: She is almost always working - and has been known to 'look into a matter' while on social engagements. Considering herself in theory like the weyr's homemaker - her tasks are never done.

* Substitutes greater weyr family for intimate commitment: In her mind she holds a great many people in her esteem as friends and family. But this can discourage her from long term intimate relations. She uses her network as an excuse that she doesn't 'need' to go home to a weyrmate at the end of the day although the thought is nice.

* Fear of Failure: So much hinges on the weyr having a capable leadership team. She doesn't want to be the weakest link. It would mean the end of their entire species.

* Frustration with Limitations: She can't pour wine from an empty skin - and the limited resources upset her. She works very closely to Craft and Hold to encourage and empower more production of these resources. She can only do so much while maintaining people's dignity - and without a proper Hold to house the skilled crafters.

Describe Yourself:

* CAPABLE: ----- She knows how to do a lot of things. Change babies, first aid, hauling water, mucking out stalls. She feels its her responsibility to be able to do anything she might have to ask someone else to do. It gives her a feeling of accountability between herself and the swathes of people she must employ and protect.

* FEARLESS: -----She is like a mother bear protecting her cubs when one of her own is hurt. She'll be right by their side in the Infirmary and will have to be pried from their sides. She doesn't like seeing anyone hurt and will do what she can to help.

* FIRM: ----- She can compromise, but when she feels she is in the right she will firmly hold her ground. She'll let her disagreement be on the record - even with the weyrwoman. Her reasonable nature makes these moments few but pointed.

* HAPPY: -----Although the tragedies of their world weigh on her and everyone else - she considers herself happy. She wants to focus on building the world back up and raising her children. She'll take whatever happy moments she can get her hands on.

* HONEST: -----Its not easy - but she doesn't lie. The odd ommission of information will happen and is part and parcel of how she manages to work with so many personalities - but if bad news needs to be shared she won't sugar coat it. This applies to pernese of all ages.

The Magic Touch: The children in the creche are near and dear to her heart and she considers them her extended family. She's had problems carrying children to term and the creche has helped her deal with her losses.

Tell us a story...



* 2561, 0 She was born during a violent thunderstorm hovering over High Reaches, but it couldn't match her for the volume of her birthing cries. It did however portent that she would grow up to be a strong woman - something her mother is said to have remarked on when she was placed in her arms after 18 hours of labour.

* 2564, 3 The birth of her sibling Olysusi - whom she immediately disliked upon sight and forever remembered as being a poignant disappointment to her. She thought she was going to get a baby sister instead.

* 2568, 7 Evacuation from High Reaches due to resources shortages impacts her as a young child as she remembers it clearly. Her large family is moved to Fort Weyr where they are forced to live in even closer quarters and with reduced status. This may not seem like a big deal to those outside of the drudge culture - but there is significant hierarchical differences created by the refugee incursion into Fort Weyr. Children are cruel despite the harsh losses of pernese life caused by the Pass. She remembers being bullied, and has grown to be very intolerant of the same in the current Southern Weyr creche because of those experiences.

* 2575, 14 She meets and falls in love with a smith apprentice, to whom she gives her virginity at a very young age. She from that point on has the opportunity to her parents' horror of bedding a rider or two, and begins working closer with weyrfolk.

* 2576, 14 Several years of blood sweat and tears working for anyone and doing any thing that could further her future with the weyr. She abandons the prospects of meeting a weyrmate in favour of a flexible but active social life with those her own age. Valuing the potential legacy she could leave the future generation she begins with a lengthy career in the creche - caring for others' children. She suffers two miscarriages during this time, both children conceived by casual partners, and begins to believe that motherhood will not bless her. She focuses on the care of the future of Pern as tragedy brings other weyrs and holds into Fort.

* 2581, 20 With a third miscarriage, Lorna nearly suffers a break down of emotion. She is afraid that her hopes of becoming a mother won't happen but gets support from her family and friends.

* 2584, 22 Birth of her daughter Dawna - a glorious event. For whatever reason the fates decide that she will conceive and carry a child to term. She is very careful with what she chooses to do during pregnancy and finds that she does not suffer any bouts of bleeding. The moment her baby girl was placed in her arms she felt as close a feeling as she imagined Impressing to be like. The little girls 'baby' eyes were blue - and she knew in that moment that motherhood was for her. Every hard moment had been worth it. She also receives a fire lizard egg as a celebratory gift and impresses a brown flit to whom she gives the name Bahm. He makes motherhood interesting - and she finds his tendency to go off on his own very helpful while making the adjustment from mother back to working drudge.

* 2587, 25 Birth of her son Gillis & the move to Southern Winds Weyr are tremulous times for her. With the future of Pern in question she is called upon to aid the current headwoman during preparations to evacuate. Recently made a mother a second time - and literally working with her son swaddled against her in a convienant sling she slaves through the organization and inventory of what can be immediately transported to the new settlement. Using the steel born to her, she rallies teams of people with complimentary skills (a knack she carries with her to this day) and using them to best effect. She feels scared about the move but understands the why. She high hopes that everything will be alright, and worries about her daughter and son. Upon hearing about rumors of something called hunters, she is terrified of the jungle. And then of learning about the beach snakes, she's wondering if the paradise is more like a type of hell for them. She's not yet sure what to make of the Sharpfish yet.

* 2588, 26 Is newly appointed as Headwoman with the retirement of the previous to take over the management of Southern Winds Weyr and responsible for executing the weyrwoman's wishes. She takes the role very seriously as Halirina is a taskmaster she is eager to prove herself to. Early in this year she also accidentally impresses a blue flit whose egg was left in her care while its intended handler was ill. She names him Zuuli.

Flit Details

Name:
Bahm
Pronounced:
BAM!
Color:
Brown
Date of Birth:
07.06.2584 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr

General Appearance...

Bahm is a chunky brown flit with a quiet giant disposition. He has an almost suede quality of colouring where two very similar tones of brown meet.

Personality...
Bahm rarely protests, whines, or questions anything. He's a serious bloke who recognizes his handler's importance and is happy to help her. Even if being quiet and well behaved in the weyr grounds is all he does. He keeps him rambuctiousness for out in the jungle where he often goes to hunt and play

Mind Voice: Bored. He's got a very aloof and disinterested mindvoice that warms for his handler but comments very annoyedly about others.

Likes: Exploring in the jungle: He dislikes confined spaces and enjoys learning about the jungles' vast and interesting things. He hunts while he's out and about and suns as well.
Alone time with his handler: Lorna is so rarely alone, so he enjoys monopolizing her time even if it bugs Zuuli when she's at relative stasis.

Meeting new people: Bahm is a people watcher and its pretty typical for Lorna to hear his judgements of them as he experiences them for the first time.

Dislikes:
Being in one place for too long: He gets bored with the same place all the time and goes exploring to avoid this feeling.
Scoldy people who aren't his handler: He won't tolerate being reprimanded by anyone but the Golds and his handler. That deference extends mildly to the goldriders - but he doesn't particularly like them either. Their dragons would eat him if he protested and that's the only reason he tolerates their edicts.
His blue brother from another mother pushing his buttons too much: Zuuli can be irritating for the sake of bugging him. He doesn't like it much - but luckily his Lorna will normally prevent Zuuli from being too much of an irritation.

Flit Details

Name:
Zuuli
Pronounced:
Zoo-Lee
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
01.01.2589 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Zuuli is small for his hide colour - at a length comparable to Lorna's forearm and not very much meat on him. He is healthy and has a dark blue coat that's almost black in appearance. The sheen shows the care he takes to get fed as often as possible with the best that can be offered to him.

Personality...


Zuuli is a mellow sort. The younger of the two flits that call to Lorna. He's her youngest 'child' as it were and has a youthful energetic way about him. He is however obedient and well behaved as his handler wouldn't settle for less. He doesn't chase greens on a regular basis - and prefers to be with Lorna at all times. He loves his big brother - who luckily seems to like him too!

Mind Voice: Zuuli is a brat to other fire lizards but Affectionate to his handler. He has a whiny little shrill way of imaging and sending her feelings. Liks her youngest child.

Likes:

Food: Zuuli is the greedy guts of Lorna's two flits. He can never eat too much - and will always at least nibble at food offered even if he's full. This normally results with him draping his sleeping body around her neck like he's a necktie.

Things to do: He detests being bored and luckily for him his handler is rarely boring! He finds all the silly little things she needs to attend to fascinating - and pays a little attention to everything.

Attention: He's far from aloof - preferring his own handler's touch but allowing those he is familiar with to handle him as well. He also likes to bugle when Lorna enters a room to remind people that she is important too.

Dislikes:

Interrupted naps: He really doesn't like it when Lorna removes him from her neck when he's sleeping. Sleep is sacred - leave him to it!

Bossy fire lizards he doesn't know: He expects golds to be bossy but he has no interest in bossy any-other-colour. He should be respected as his handler is respected and he doesn't tolerate sass! Ofc, he won't pick a fight with bigger lizards either but he protests bad treatment.

Cold anything: Need he say more? He loves the jungle climate, hot sunny places, and his handlers' heat.  When winter comes he's going to be a clingy annoyance to her - but cold just isn't his scene.

[apptitle]Tell us a story...[/apptitle]
[apprefl]

* [i]2561, 0[/i] She was born during a violent thunderstorm hovering over High Reaches, but it couldn't match her for the volume of her birthing cries. It did however portent that she would grow up to be a strong woman - something her mother is said to have remarked on when she was placed in her arms after 18 hours of labour.

* [i]2564, 3[/i] The birth of her sibling Olysusi - whom she immediately disliked upon sight and forever remembered as being a poignant disappointment to her. She thought she was going to get a baby sister instead.

* [i]2568, 7[/i] Evacuation from High Reaches due to resources shortages impacts her as a young child as she remembers it clearly. Her large family is moved to Fort Weyr where they are forced to live in even closer quarters and with reduced status. This may not seem like a big deal to those outside of the drudge culture - but there is significant hierarchical differences created by the refugee incursion into Fort Weyr. Children are cruel despite the harsh losses of pernese life caused by the Pass. She remembers being bullied, and has grown to be very intolerant of the same in the current Southern Weyr creche because of those experiences.

* [i]2575, 14[/i] She meets and falls in love with a smith apprentice, to whom she gives her virginity at a very young age. She from that point on has the opportunity to her parents' horror of bedding a rider or two, and begins working closer with weyrfolk.

* [i]2576, 14[/i] Several years of blood sweat and tears working for anyone and doing any thing that could further her future with the weyr. She abandons the prospects of meeting a weyrmate in favour of a flexible but active social life with those her own age. Valuing the potential legacy she could leave the future generation she begins with a lengthy career in the creche - caring for others' children. She suffers two miscarriages during this time, both children conceived by casual partners, and begins to believe that motherhood will not bless her. She focuses on the care of the future of Pern as tragedy brings other weyrs and holds into Fort.

* [i]2581, 20[/i] With a third miscarriage, Lorna nearly suffers a break down of emotion. She is afraid that her hopes of becoming a mother won't happen but gets support from her family and friends.

* [i]2584, 22[/i] Birth of her daughter Dawna - a glorious event. For whatever reason the fates decide that she will conceive and carry a child to term. She is very careful with what she chooses to do during pregnancy and finds that she does not suffer any bouts of bleeding. The moment her baby girl was placed in her arms she felt as close a feeling as she imagined Impressing to be like. The little girls 'baby' eyes were blue - and she knew in that moment that motherhood was for her. Every hard moment had been worth it. She also receives a fire lizard egg as a celebratory gift and impresses a brown flit to whom she gives the name Bahm. He makes motherhood interesting - and she finds his tendency to go off on his own very helpful while making the adjustment from mother back to working drudge.

* [i]2587, 25[/i] Birth of her son Gillis & the move to Southern Winds Weyr are tremulous times for her. With the future of Pern in question she is called upon to aid the current headwoman during preparations to evacuate. Recently made a mother a second time - and literally working with her son swaddled against her in a convienant sling she slaves through the organization and inventory of what can be immediately transported to the new settlement. Using the steel born to her, she rallies teams of people with complimentary skills (a knack she carries with her to this day) and using them to best effect. She feels scared about the move but understands the why. She high hopes that everything will be alright, and worries about her daughter and son. Upon hearing about rumors of something called hunters, she is terrified of the jungle. And then of learning about the beach snakes, she's wondering if the paradise is more like a type of hell for them. She's not yet sure what to make of the Sharpfish yet.

* [i]2588, 26[/i] Is newly appointed as Headwoman with the retirement of the previous to take over the management of Southern Winds Weyr and responsible for executing the weyrwoman's wishes. She takes the role very seriously as Halirina is a taskmaster she is eager to prove herself to. Early in this year she also accidentally impresses a blue flit whose egg was left in her care while its intended handler was ill. She names him Zuuli.

[b]Date of Birth:[/b]
07.06.2584 9th Interval.
[b]Place of Birth:[/b]
Fort Weyr[/appbio]
[apptitle]General Appearance...[/apptitle]
[apprefl]Bahm is a chunky brown flit with a quiet giant disposition. He has an almost suede quality of colouring where two very similar tones of brown meet. [/apprefl]
[apptitle]Personality...[/apptitle] Bahm rarely protests, whines, or questions anything. He's a serious bloke who recognizes his handler's importance and is happy to help her. Even if being quiet and well behaved in the weyr grounds is all he does. He keeps him rambuctiousness for out in the jungle where he often goes to hunt and play

[apprefl][b]Mind Voice:[/b] Bored. He's got a very aloof and disinterested mindvoice that warms for his handler but comments very annoyedly about others.

[b]Likes:[/b] Exploring in the jungle: He dislikes confined spaces and enjoys learning about the jungles' vast and interesting things. He hunts while he's out and about and suns as well.
Alone time with his handler: Lorna is so rarely alone, so he enjoys monopolizing her time even if it bugs Zuuli when she's at relative stasis.

Meeting new people: Bahm is a people watcher and its pretty typical for Lorna to hear his judgements of them as he experiences them for the first time.

[b]Dislikes:[/b]
Being in one place for too long: He gets bored with the same place all the time and goes exploring to avoid this feeling.
Scoldy people who aren't his handler: He won't tolerate being reprimanded by anyone but the Golds and his handler. That deference extends mildly to the goldriders - but he doesn't particularly like them either. Their dragons would eat him if he protested and that's the only reason he tolerates their edicts.
His blue brother from another mother pushing his buttons too much: Zuuli can be irritating for the sake of bugging him. He doesn't like it much - but luckily his Lorna will normally prevent Zuuli from being too much of an irritation.

Zuuli
[b]Pronounced:[/b]
Zoo-Lee
[b]Color:[/b]
Blue
[b]Date of Birth:[/b]
01.01.2589 9th Interval.
[b]Place of Birth:[/b]
Southern Winds Weyr[/appbio]
[apptitle]General Appearance...[/apptitle]
[apprefl]Zuuli is small for his hide colour - at a length comparable to Lorna's forearm and not very much meat on him. He is healthy and has a dark blue coat that's almost black in appearance. The sheen shows the care he takes to get fed as often as possible with the best that can be offered to him. [/apprefl]
[apptitle]Personality...[/apptitle]

Zuuli is a mellow sort. The younger of the two flits that call to Lorna. He's her youngest 'child' as it were and has a youthful energetic way about him. He is however obedient and well behaved as his handler wouldn't settle for less. He doesn't chase greens on a regular basis - and prefers to be with Lorna at all times. He loves his big brother - who luckily seems to like him too!

[apprefl][b]Mind Voice:[/b] Zuuli is a brat to other fire lizards but Affectionate to his handler. He has a whiny little shrill way of imaging and sending her feelings. Liks her youngest child.

[b]Likes:[/b]

Food: Zuuli is the greedy guts of Lorna's two flits. He can never eat too much - and will always at least nibble at food offered even if he's full. This normally results with him draping his sleeping body around her neck like he's a necktie.

Things to do: He detests being bored and luckily for him his handler is rarely boring! He finds all the silly little things she needs to attend to fascinating - and pays a little attention to everything.

Attention: He's far from aloof - preferring his own handler's touch but allowing those he is familiar with to handle him as well. He also likes to bugle when Lorna enters a room to remind people that she is important too.

[b]Dislikes:[/b]

Interrupted naps: He really doesn't like it when Lorna removes him from her neck when he's sleeping. Sleep is sacred - leave him to it!

Bossy fire lizards he doesn't know: He expects golds to be bossy but he has no interest in bossy any-other-colour. He should be respected as his handler is respected and he doesn't tolerate sass! Ofc, he won't pick a fight with bigger lizards either but he protests bad treatment.

Cold anything: Need he say more? He loves the jungle climate, hot sunny places, and his handlers' heat.  When winter comes he's going to be a clingy annoyance to her - but cold just isn't his scene.
