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.

this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

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.

Skycourser Eggs!

30.06.2591 / 08AM

Calling all Herders, Farmers, and Holders of that life calling:
A well kept secret from the day before reveals that an crazy expedition was made to go out and collect skycourser eggs. Thaaat’s right. And it was successful. No dragonriders necessary here! Crafters can do it without. That’s not to say it was easy. Everyone that went sustained a lot of superficial wounds, at the very least, and one apprentice, Inviditar, lost his life procuring these eggs. This is still a big deal! Reviving the Beast Crafthall is pretty much the sole focus of a lot of people in that hall – it’s an exciting morning.

The number of eggs is left intentionally vague because we don’t really want to limit the amount that can be passed out. What we are asking is that there be one per player to start. <3 Then we’ll do more clutches of these – or more egg runs – as people want them.

A couple of things to remember!
Skycoursers are very territorial and aggressive once they have imprinted – and the crafters know this. One egg per person and only after whomever has already had a wher trained up. You cannot bond to a wher once you have a skycourser – they’ll fight, and the skycourser is likely to win. They are not friendly to fire lizards – seeing them as prey animals and food – so if you have a fair of flits, you’re claiming an egg at their own risk. Most skycourser can grow accustomed to fire lizards if they’re trained proper, but accidents happen and they are still, even once adults, wild animals.

Those that went egg hunting:
Inviditar - died during
Sr Apprentice Tayvelle
Sr Apprentice Cinnacai

I'M SO EXCITED! :faint: Like the Beastcrafters, keeping this under wraps has been an endeavor since this is quite a big thing for us. But I hope everyone enjoys our new skycoursers. :3 A template will be put up soon, though we have a moment since the eggs won't be hatching just yet.

On the IC front, I'm going to be having Kindolin step forward to claim an egg if possible. Whether or not she's allowed is up for discussion, but she would try anyhow. ^_^

I'mma be selfish... Because i am so fricken excited!

Tayvelle Will be claiming an egg (If that's OK?) If she's lucky, her firelizard won't die while she tries to train it.

Also... If it's not too much, could I claim one of the apprentice slots for her? As in one of the apprentices that helped retrieve the eggs?

And 'cause i need more threads, Testhinia is going to get involved but only as someone watching. She's not gonna do much more than watch. But I'd like to explore her reactions to it

The Skycourser template has now been added in with the critter section of character applications. :happy:

None of mine fit this, but now I find myself tempted to make a beastcrafter to join in with it :roll:

I'm hoping to post Elrost ICly soon when I get out of this... slump.
But he's basically of a mind with Keassa: With no craftmasters he couldn't say no, but now that he can see the eggs in person he can't help but think of all the possibilities. Howeeeever he also can't help but think of all of the things that could go terribly wrong. Cause he's a worrier.

Since this is a Farmer thing too, I'd like to claim the other trekking apprentice position for Cinnacai, it's definitely something she'd be up for. However, she's not interested in raising one herself, it doesn't really fit her role in the craft. But if there is an unspoken stipulation that those that went on the trek were all people who wanted to claim an egg, then that's cool too. I'll just have her be excited :3

Added Cinnacai and Tayvelle to the apprentices that went along. ^_^

There are still 3 journeyman that could've went.

@SirAlahn I'm not sure Kindolin would be eligible since she is not a farmer or herder - or a holder who works in that field. Just having interacted with them wouldn't really be enough, ya know? They'd be a little more selective about handing out eggs. If you wanna chat about it, we can though.  :love:

None of mine are really eligible.

Nealros is curious about it, but it sounds like a bit too much work for little reward and he'd probably be expected to participate more with the weyr than he's comfortable with.

Penderton, intrigued by all creatures, values his Green flits too much to risk their lives. He'll still inquire where he can, and maybe make it a future goal as the craft is revived and new methods are exercised for the safety of all.

Nieve would love to get her hands on one, but she'd never be allowed. She feels a little weird about it, like having a skycourser might betray Lovely's memory, but also that her deceased flit might see them as a suitable replacement since they bested her, after all. Regardless, she is just a drudge without a wher to her name and no plans on joining a craft at this point in her life.
