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

Your Reflection...

Appearance: He bites the skin around his nails, so his fingers always look like a dragonet has been mauling them. Usually looks hollow, brittle, and completely dead inside, regardless of what his actual mood is; better assessments of his temperament seem to land on "tired and concerned", since he's rarely seen without dark circles under his eyes. Manages to look pale and wan even at the height of summer. He gets cold easily so even on some less hot summer days he can seem unreasonably bundled.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Naeharie contextualizes the Catastrophe mostly in what it has done to him personally, since for a long time that could be his only concern. Since becoming a Beastcraft apprentice, then a candidate, he's learned to situate himself on a global stage and start to come to terms with that it means for the future of his species and the planet. He doesn't like it very much.

Response to dragon color mutations: Naeharie is just fine with reds but terrified of blacks. He associates them with a type of person and patterns of behavior that he finds unpleasant, and they semi-frequently star in his nightmares. He's not sure what these mutations breeding back into the pool will mean for future crops of dragons. He's trying to keep an open mind, since they must have shown up for a reason, but uh.

Who are you...

Likes:

Background noise: Naeharie was always soothed by the sound of bees and has come to enjoy most gentle, repetitive, unintrusive sounds. The crash of tides, the patter of rain, the rustle of wind through fallen leaves--it's all a salve to his system.

Animals: Naeharie was engaged in beastcraft before being Searched, and still likes critters more than people. He was especially fond of the bees, which he viewed as pleasant, orderly, productive members of society. He direly wishes that people could be more like bees.

Order: If there is something to categorize or organize, he will be the one to do it. This sometimes leads him to problem-solving for things he was not remotely involved in beforehand. His fondness for math also stems from this drive. He loves schedules and routines, though he can definitely be pulled away to have a little fun.

Solitude: Naeharie often needs time to recharge from social interaction, and will sneak away or hide whenever he possibly can. He does not understand why people would possibly want to talk to him and this confusion often shows on his face.

Dislikes:

Talking: Naeharie is naturally laconic and very reticent, and thus extremely uncomfortable with being made to speak for any extended period of time, and he considers "extended" to be more than two syllables. When he can, he'll just gesture or nod. He doesn't mind hearing others nearly as much (some of it's just Background Noise to him, unless the crowd is particularly chaotic), but excessively flit-brained banter does grate on him after a while.

Bullying: He's dealt a lot with it over the course of his life, and he hates seeing it happen to others. He's working on being the kind of person who Takes No Shit, but in truth he still has a somewhat fearful mindset and will often fall back on placating rather than challenging.

Men: He has a low-grade discomfort around men in general and big, imposing or loud men in particular. If left to his own devices, he will gravitate towards groups of girls in crowds, if he has to be around anyone, and in general finds women easier to deal with. He can work out his initial unease with most boys he interacts with, and doesn't seem any stranger than normal, but with a specific Type of man it becomes much more of an ordeal.

Food: He has a contentious relationship with eating, some of which derives from his early childhood undernourishment and his sensitivities, some it from a desire to exert some form of control over his life. In any event, he finds it a joyless activity that he sadly cannot refrain from without dying.

Strengths:

* TACTICS: Naeharie is good at seeing patterns and developing plans, and he prepares well for everything he does. He doesn't like to go into things with deficient information or about 70 escape routes.

* GOOD LISTENER: By virtue of pretty much never speaking but having good expressive responses, Naeharie makes a surprisingly good sounding board. He thus becomes privy to a lot of information he would rather not have. He is often too polite to simply ask others to stop, so what usually happens is he'll have 90% of a productive "conversation" before abruptly vanishing.

* GOOD INFLUENCE: While he is not directly confrontational, he is very good at communicating gentle judgment and disappointment, and will make an effort to help people around him make good choices when he can't avoid hearing about their problems. When too many bad decisions are being made, Naeharie will always take up the call of the Mom Friend, no matter how much it exhausts him.

* GENTLE: Doesn't have a violent bone in his body, and while he can sometimes lose his calm, it takes a massive effort to get him to lose his temper. He's perfectly capable of anger, but he doesn't want to be the kind of person who takes it out on others. He will remove himself from a situation if he feels he can't comport himself well. He can tend to people he cares about as sweetly as he does his animals.

* POETIC: Quality, of course, is in the eye of the beholder, but when left with his own thoughts he will often compose little poems in his head, and occasionally he has the wherewithal to surreptitiously carve them places. He loves listening to harpers and will often create his own songs, which only his dragon can hear. He's a nimble hand at art as well, but doesn't have any real opportunity to practice at it.

Weaknesses:

* AVOIDANCE: Naeharie has big problems directly confronting people and situations that make him uncomfortable. He builds issues up to be way bigger than they actually are, and terrifies himself out of doing anything about it. He will often disappear entirely from places he's supposed to be.

* CONSTITUTION: He was often sick as a child, something he's only halfway grown out of. His body seems to hate half the food he gives it, leading him to be a picky eater. He's had dreadful night terrors for years, and it leads to a sort of self-perpetuating insomnia machine. He's acutely aware of the downsides of all this, and is haunted by the idea that he'll become ill at an inconvenient time and ruin opportunities for himself.

* LACK OF CONFIDENCE: He truly has no idea why a dragon destined for leadership and probable mating success would bond to him, since he has tried to go as much of his life as possible escaping the notice of others. He's trying to rise to the challenge, as Liorith must have chosen him for a reason, but he hasn't really internalized any sense of true worthiness.

* BRITTLENESS: Naeharie is gluing his life and personality back together and some parts of it aren't very flexible yet. More generally, once he sets a routine he likes for himself, he doesn't like it to be disrupted.

* DAYDREAMING: By virtue of getting little sleep and having few outward methods of really expressing himself, Naeharie can sometimes get caught up in a creative endeavor and check out.

Describe Yourself:

* RETIRING: ----- Naeharie is a very closed-off person and will not volunteer many details about himself. People pressuring him to divulge too much about himself is his quickest route to becoming very distressed. He also does not like to be touched by people he does not intimately trust and will perform remarkably swift gymnastics to avoid so much as a friendly pat on the shoulder.

* DUTIFUL: ----- In the general course of things, Naeharie is obedient and responsible. Though he sometimes despises this part of himself, he fundamentally craves the stability of a trustworthy authority figure, and will follow them faithfully. It's just getting to the "trust" part that has proved somewhat problematic.

* CONCILIATORY: ----- He cannot stand tension in the people around him and will often work subtly to keep the peace in his social environments, even if he rarely directly interferes. On a more immediate level, he is very pacifying towards people who have--or he views as having--power over him, and is always well attuned their moods and wants.

* METICULOUS: ----- Naeharie hates half-assing projects and will plan, and execute, things as thoroughly as possible. The more unknown variables he can eliminate, the better.

* ROMANTIC: ----- Though he's found a more unsentimental approach more helpful to dealing with life, Naeharie is a pretty creative and dreamy person deep down, and occasionally even lets himself enjoy it. This mostly manifests as an artistic drive that he keeps to himself, but he also cherishes the notion of one day indulging his deepest fantasy: a loving and mutually supportive relationship with a nice girl who likes him.

The Magic Touch: If denied access to biting his hands, he'll usually chew on his lip. By virtue of being very quiet, very still, and having the general countenance of a recently murdered person, Naeharie has on more than one occasion been mistaken for an actual corpse.


Family...

Mother: Oullenelle, Drudge, b. 2549.
Father: Zasarine, Drudge, b. 2550.

Siblings:
Cerielle, Fisherman, b. 2566.
Devrien, Drudge, b. 2568.
Oulandre, Drudge, b. 2572.

Children: None. He wants them, but he's not remotely ready for them.

Tell us a story...



* 2575, 0 Naeharie is born in the last gasp of autumn, sickly and small, to a pair of drudges in Fort Hold. His parents already have several stronger, more capable children, and are uncertain how they ended up with this thing. Naeharie's father suspects the child is not his, an accusation his mother loudly denies. Naeharie is sparingly cared for as an infant, which does not improve either his health or his standing among his family.

* 2580, 4 Naeharie has fallen prey to almost every bug going around the Hold, but this year he becomes badly ill for the first time, and is largely left in the care of healers. For some time he simply thinks he has been abandoned, and when he comes to accept this, he discovers he prefers it. He is both relieved and saddened when his parents collect him, and wonders for the first time why his parents didn't dump him in a creche.

* 2583, 7 Naeharie proves too weak to pull his weight among his family and contribute to their hardscrabble existence. His father, who had previously greeted Naeharie with bland cruelty and neglect, takes a more active role in showing Naeharie how much his uselessness irritates him. His mother does not object. Naeharie formally begins the long process of withdrawing into himself, hoping to avoid unnecessary pain. He wonders, again, why his parents simply hadn't left him somewhere to die, or offered him to a creche.

* 2585, 9 Naeharie discovers why his parents simply did not abandon him, and begins contributing to his family's success. This process largely divorces Naeharie's mind from his body, and he spends the ensuing years making his thoughts and feelings as small as possible, locking them as deeply within himself as he can manage. It is during this time that his night terrors, formerly an intermittent, if frightening, part of his childhood, become a pervasive problem.

* 2587, 11 Fort Hold relocates to Southern Winds Weyr. Naeharie becomes extremely ill during the migration, and spends the tail end of the year recovering. Naeharie's parents find it difficult to put him back to work, and business is not what it once was. They are unsure what to do with him, and Naeharie decides, at last, that he is not going to give them a chance to find out.

* 2588, 12 Naeharie goes out searching for his own work, and after some time spent lovingly watching the antics of the beastkeepers, he manages to bag himself a position as an apprentice. He finds, to his dismay, that the state of beastcraft is such that there is no actual hall for him to hide in. It takes them a while to come around, but Naeharie's parents see the virtue in having their son take up such a skilled trade with so few actual elders left, even if they have to wait for true profit and prestige. Naeharie, at least, has found great comfort in his animals and his mission, and even if life isn't completely what he'd like it to be, it's the best it's been since he was warm and safe in the womb.

* 2589, 13 A young girl approaches him in a particularly dark moment and offers him a small green egg. Naeharie has no idea why this is happening, and initially thinks the egg must be some kind of trick, but he comes to treasure and care for it. A tiny green firelizard, perfect for hiding, hatches, and she and Naeharie bond quickly and fiercely. Naeharie wonders who on Pern that girl could possibly have been.

* 2590, 14 Naeharie is Searched. Naeharie thinks: the candidates go away. They bond with dragons and go live in caves. They grow up and serve in the wings and live far, far away from drudges. Perhaps a sweet blue--or a happy green--is the half a heart he's been missing, and with a dragon he'll feel like a real person. He accepts.

Give us a taste of your character and a sample of how you roleplay. No real length limit.

Some of the tension melted away. His shoulders relaxed, and he let his hands clasp gently in front of him, rather than hook around his torso in a tight grasp. Something warm and soft glowed in his heart, as he watched the bronze dragonet free the green from her egg. He knew, once, fleetingly, perfectly, how good it felt, to be on the receiving end of such a kindness. To have someone barrel out of nowhere and give you everything like it was nothing.

He watched as the green ambled over to his friend, and chose her, and nothing in the world mattered but them and their happiness and his happiness for them. The bronze was coming over, too, and he hoped desperately that whoever the little dragon picked, it was a candidate who could truly appreciate him, someone--someone kind-hearted, and honorable, who would do right by him--

Then he stopped, pale and still as death, as the black hatched.

The ugly, inky nightmare, eyes turning red and hot with hatred. Naeharie's breath caught as it attacked the bronze, and he shook, talking half a step forward, wanting more than anything to--to jump in and help him, to stop this noble little dragonet from getting an undeserved thrashing. How could anything want to beat him up?

But the bronze didn't need his help. The bronze defended himself, and stood his ground against that--that terrible thing, and then it was over. The black was picking his bonded. And the bronze. The bronze looked at him.

Naeharie finished his step forward. The bronze spoke.

Flit Details

Name:
Aria
Pronounced:
Ar-ee-uh
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
28.07.2589 9th Interval
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

An absolutely tiny green. She is mostly a light jade, streaked through with darker, mossier green, with some faint webbing in an almost golden-green hue. Curled up in even slightly bad light, she can look indistinguishable from a fetching rock.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Aria is pretty much constantly broadcasting her emotions to Naeharie, but is otherwise an unusually quiet green, to the point that most people aren't aware Naeharie even has one, except when it comes to music. Her voice seems airy but heavy, like the graze of a ghost.

Likes:

Music: She loves "singing" with Naeharie, and will often supply mental art to his lyrics, or vocalize rudimentary tunes. If she overhears conversation she finds particularly pleasant, she will mimic some of the sounds.

Judging: She is very opinionated and discerning, considering her color and size, and loves functioning as the silent jury of whatever setting she finds herself in. Occasionally she's pressed enough to carry out a sentence, and will begin an extremely discreet campaign of harassment against the offending party, making their lives slightly worse in a thousand tiny, untraceable ways.

Dislikes:

Discordant sounds: If there is too much chaotic human activity, or too many sudden bad sounds, Aria will become increasingly agitated. She will either, at this point, check out and make Naeharie sing to her, or sneak off to try to silence the source of her discontent.

Firelizard Effrontery: Aria bonded very hard to her human and considers herself a mature and sophisticated lady. She thinks all other firelizards should know their place (beneath her), and she hates golds especially, considering some kind of inherent "queenship" an affront to someone like her, who has worked very hard to develop such class and style, thank you VERY much. She MIGHT tolerate Naeharie one day getting another firelizard, but she would not abide a gold.


Member Info...

Anything Else:
She is not mature yet, but she will rise on 26.08. She is extremely picky and will not be a force catch; she would sooner not mate at all.

Dragon Details

Name:
Liorith
Pronounced:
[ lee-OAR-ith ]
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
24.06.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 37.9M
Mature Height: 7.6M
Mature Wingspan: 63.2M

General Appearance...

Liorith's true beauty is in the simplicity of his markings. Rather than having drastic stripes, spots, or other variations in his hide, this Bronze is characterized by a rather constant and shimmering hide. While there are subtle differences in shade across him, they are all coalesced around a fetching copper hue that becomes absolutely radiant in the light. His underbelly is just slightly lighter than the rest of him, and his darker wingsails are spattered with bright fleckings of shinier copper. The only marrings on him are three jagged scars down his left flank from the battle he had with his brother during the Hatching.

There's no doubt that Liorith is a big Bronze. Large and muscular, his physical strength matches his emotional resilience. Nevertheless, he's surprisingly agile for such a large creature, with an average height and wingspan for his size.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Liorith's voice is low, slow, and measured. He always considers things before he answers, and the presence of him in Naeharie's mind will ever be solid, stable, and warm. While he isn't rushed, Liorith isn't ponderous or stupid either.

Likes:
Naeharie's Poems : While Liorith himself doesn’t have a creative bone in his body, he has a great appreciation for fine and artistic things. Listening to his rider make them will always fascinate him and make him adore the man all the more.

Peace : Not in terms of fighting, per se -- but Liorith likes when he can just sit quietly with his rider. Since it calms and recharges Naeharie, it will be precious to him too.

Dislikes:
Pointless Conflict : It's different when you're standing up for something you believe in or someone who needs protection -- but fighting or arguing for the sake of it? Keep him out of it. He has no interest.

Villains : Some people just fall into this category for him. Preying on the weak, creating strife just because they feel like it, lying, cheating, treating others badly… consistent behavior of this sort, rather than a mistake or a poor mood, will land  others in this label, and thus in Liorith's poor graces.

Strengths:

* ALTRUISTIC : Liorith is perpetually ready to give everything to everyone. He asks for nothing in return and never seems to tire of being generous, compassionate, and charitable toward others. This Bronze has more than enough strength and time to pass around -- though no one will be as constant a recipient of it as his rider, who Liorith will constantly seek to reassure and support.

* FINESSE : Perhaps surprisingly for a creature of his size, Liorith is no clumsy and lumbering thing. He might not be able to make as tight of turns on the wing as a smaller dragon, but he's quite skilled with his claws and won't inadvertently smash anything under his bulk.

Weaknesses:

* CREATIVITY : Liorith is suited much better to support others in their endeavors, cheering them on and providing a sounding board, than he is to leading or being the voice of inspiration. He's just not a creative dragon, and will stick to tried-and-true methods or else follow in the footsteps of those like Naeharie who he trusts to come up with novel solutions.

* CAUSES : This Bronze can't resist when there's someone in need to be defended or a purpose to be championed. Some might think it makes him insufferable, but Liorith won't ever quite understand why. It will be easy to sway him into doing something if someone manages to figure out that this is one of his weaknesses.

Dragon Speech Code:
Gradient Code : This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Text: #f9c990; Left BG: #c97b42; Right BG: #934b29

Member Info...

Anything Else:
Made per the process outlined at the Optional Weyrling Application. Please let us know via PM if you choose to accept or reject this dragon.

Once your character has been approved, you can simply enclose your dragon's dialogue in a BBCode of their name -- [dragonname]like so[/dragonname]. This custom code will be created for you after approval.

We hope you like him! :love: He's meant to complement Naeharie as well as provide some strength.
