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: Xaeybl is an active, competitive girl who doesn’t spend much time worrying about her appearance; she’s got all the important bits, and she’d rather be doing something else. Her clothing, a mix of cast-offs and things cobbled together, rarely matches, and she hardly ever does anything special with her thick black hair beyond pull it back if it gets in the way. She might, with age, develop a bit more style, if she ever gets the riding leathers she so desperately wants.

Her most striking feature are her eyes, stormy grey and intense, but she also has a scattering of moles across her face, down her arms, and elsewhere on her body; as well as actual freckles across the bridge of her nose and cheeks from all her time out in the sun.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Xaeybl is too young to have experienced any of the horror or difficulty outside the weyr she was raised in, and never got the chance to see what Pern was like before the Pass. She grew up knowing that riders were Important--they fought Thread and protected everyone--and it was her job to do everything she could to support them. She’s fiercely protective of her extended, motley family and unsympathetic to the complaints of holders/crafters.

Response to dragon color mutations: She listens seriously to the concerns of her elders, but still doesn’t quite understand what the giant hubbub is about: more dragon colors mean more chances to Impress! She’s not sure about S’bok--bronze dragons are supposed to fly queens, afterall--but will vehemently defended him against any non-weyr folk that might make noise.


Who are you...

Likes:

Adventures: She loves exploring, climbing, and swimming.

Winning: There is nothing quite like the sweet thrill of victory, whether it be winning a competition, a bet, or overpowering someone in a fight.

Danger: She likes to flirt with it; whether that be filching something from the kitchen, climbing too high, or antagonizing bigger, older opponents.

Stories: Especially tales of daring, adventure and/or dragonriders.

Dislikes:

Holders: She thinks they’re ungrateful, stuffy milksops.

Bullies: She doesn’t like bullies (but she enjoys fighting them).

Inactivity: As long as she has a task, she’s fine, even if it’s a sedentary one, but the minute she has nothing to occupy herself with she starts crawling out of her skin.

Strengths:

* Physically Strong: Innate strength that has been further developed by her very active lifestyle.

* Audacious: She’s never going to back away from a difficult challenge, task, or adventure; she enjoys the rush of nerves when she pushes herself, and delights in the dismayed noises of everyone else around her.

* 110%: Even when she doesn’t enjoy a task, she’s always going to give it her level best because the work she does for the weyr is important and she expects nothing but the best from herself.

* Iron Stomach: She's never been picky and can (and does) eat anything and everything without ill effect. She's also pretty much immune to stomach upset from seeing blood, grievous injury, etc; she can eat right after no problem.

* Hugs: No matter how rough and tumble she might seem, Xaeybl is a total softy when she stumbles across someone having a bad day. She’ll steal them a treat from the kitchen, quietly keep them company if that’s what they need, and gives really warm hugs.

Weaknesses:

* Temper: It flares often, though she’s generally quick to forgive--once she’s taken her pound of flesh--if not exactly forget.

* Obstinate: Dragonriders and the people that support them are Important, and she’s proud to be weyrborn. Overall she’s pretty blind in her loyalty to the weyr, and getting her to change her mind about holders is an uphill struggle. She also has a horrible time backing down from an argument once it’s started, or saying no to a dare or challenge, even if it might be in her best interest.

* Self-preservation: She enjoys pushing the line a little too much to have an overdeveloped sense of self-preservation, and never seems very concerned when something backfires on her which means she’s not likely to develop one anytime soon.

* Laser Focus: She can become pretty intensely focused when she's set herself a task, and is likely to miss other things going on around her (like an authority figure swiftly descending).

* Failure: She has a hard time accepting her own limitations, and can be really hard on herself when she feels like she’s fallen short of expectation, or not done her very best.

Describe Yourself:

* Intense: She’s pretty much always running full-tilt. She works hard, studies hard, and plays hard. She does know how to relax, but saves that for when it's too dark for other activities, she's worn herself completely out, or she's out enjoying a vista.

* Physically Expressive: She tends to expresses herself in very physical ways. Her friends should expect to get punched in the arm, kicked, their hair messed up, etc (all with affection, of course). And anyone that bothers her should know she has bony elbows she uses to great effect, a mean tackle that can knock over people twice her size, and when she was younger was known to bite (and still might on occasion).

* Competitive: She has a strong drive to challenge herself, loves testing her mettle against others, enjoys a good bet, and really really likes winning.

* Loyal: Fiercely loyal to the weyr and her close friends; she takes great pleasure in defending their honor.

* Straightforward: Xaeybl doesn’t do subtle; she’s not overly complicated, and she’s always going to be direct with people (though she has been known to over dramatize on occasion). She’s not the type to spread gossip around, or talk about someone behind their back (and she tends to elbow the people who do).

The Magic Touch: Xaeybl is happiest with the sun on her face, and something new to explore. She struggles with classroom learning because of the enforced inactivity and theoretical aspect, though she tries her best to focus; she does much better with learning by doing.


Family...

Mother: Yinaya of Rantasyth [i.2564] b.2547
Father: unknown

Siblings: She knows she must have siblings, but as of yet hasn’t made any effort to identify/approach them. She views most of her age-group as satellite family.

Children: None.


Tell us a story...

* 2578, 0 Xaeybl is born, and given up to the creche. It’s never bothered her, and she views the entire weyr as her ragtag family.

* 2583, 5 Xaeybl has the frame of mind to ask about her birth parents, and is given a name: Yinaya. She doesn’t quite have the nerve to approach her mother, but watches her furtively.

* 2587, 9 The Pass ends and everyone moves into Southern Winds Weyr. Xaeybl is excited to have a whole new island to explore; so many opportunities for adventure!

* 2589, 11 Xaeybl goes exploring along the upper reaches of the weyrbowl and discovers an unattended firelizard nest; she takes three eggs, keeping one for herself and gifting the other two to friends. She immediately adores the bronze that hatches, naming him Ascent.

* 2590, 12 Xaeybl turns 12 and is Searched. She’s very proud to serve the weyr in this capacity, and is excited to Impress (because there’s no doubt in her mind she will).

* 2591, 13 On her forth venture out onto the hatching sands, Xaeybl impresses Nicynth. Her previous failures had been extremely hard on her, chipping away at her initial confidence, but she immediately forgets that in the rush of pride and affection she feels for her newly bonded.


Technically speaking, she probably wasn’t supposed to be up here--while no one had specifically forbidden it, she had a good sense of when she was skating the line of Unspoken Rules--but she had finished her chores early and it was such a nice day for exploring. And it’s not like she’d planned to climb so high, she’d just started wandering, looking at the rock formations and the little scrubby plants that grew resolutely amongst them, and before she knew it she was quite high up the wall of the weyrbowl.

She perched on an outcropping of rock and pulled out the flaky pie she’d stolen from the kitchen earlier and her waterskin, munching happily as she looked around with interest. Everyone looked tiny from up here, and she could only imagine what it looked like from dragonback! One day, surely, she’d know. She only had another turn to wait before she could be Searched! And she was sure it was only a matter of time after that before she Impressed. She was the daughter of a dragonrider, afterall, and she loved the weyr with her whole heart. Why wouldn't she be?

Xaeybl finished her snack, and glanced around the slope one last time. It was getting on in the day, and she would have to head back soon if she hoped to slip in unnoticed before dinner. But--there was a near-vertical jut of rock immediately behind her, nearly four times her height, and there was something about three-quarters up in a little hallow that looked like--she shaded her eyes against the sun and squinted--was that a nest?

Her pulse quickened, and Xaeybl considered the ascent with keen eyes. It wasn’t that far up, and there were plenty of handholds. Wouldn’t it be grand to come back with a clutch of firelizard eggs?

Mind made up, Xaeybl started climbing. It was slow going, and a bit tricky in spots, but nothing went disastrously wrong and she reached her destination with a giddy sense of accomplishment. She’d been right: firelizard eggs! A whole clutch of them--thirteen eggs!--which meant she better move fast before she had an angry gold to deal with.

Xaeybl carefully anchored herself against the opening to free up one hand. She didn't have enough room in her pockets for the whole clutch, much to her disappointment, so she settled for picking out the three best looking eggs. She pulled out the piece of cloth her pie had been wrapped in, bundling up the eggs as carefully as she could one-handed, before slowly transferring them to her pocket. Success! Now just to get down.

Getting back down was considerably harder, it always was, but she was also getting tired and was worried about crushing the eggs. She huffed, and tried to ignore the growing tremble of overtaxed muscles. It wasn’t that much farther.

She almost made it, too, but she slipped off her foothold and her arms didn’t have enough strength to compensate. She slide the last five feet, landing in a spray of pebbles. Nothing was--immediately broken--and that concern alleviated, she worriedly checked her cargo. The eggs were unblemished, and Xaeybl laughed with relief, sprawling backwards to catch her breath.

Eventually she hauled herself up and took stock. She’d have some bruises, but that was nothing new, and her fingers were a raw mess from trying to catch herself, but she hadn’t broken anything. Victory in the little things.

Xaeybl hummed to herself, taking in the view one last time, and started moving. She was sure to get a thrashing when she got back, but it was well worth it for the three eggs nestled in her pocket.
How many people could say they had gotten their firelizard by scaling a cliff? Not many, she imagined.

Flit Details

Name:
Ascent
Pronounced:
As one expects.
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
28.07.2589 9th Interval
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr


General Appearance...

Ascent is average-sized, proportional, and leanly muscled. As a hatchling, his hide was slightly mottled, but it’s evened out into an unblemished, gleaming coppery-bronze with the exception of some darker, freckle-like markings across his snout. He’d cut quite a dashing figure if he weren’t such a spazzy, opinionated kleptomaniac.


Personality...

Mind Voice: Ascent is talkative, opinionated, and not afraid to share. He often communicates with trills and whistles, and has learned the phrase “Le’s go!” which he likes to overuse when he feels like they’ve been inactive too long, when he’s excited about something, when he wants something, or is feeling possessive of Xaeybl. He doesn't share imagery, but projects his feelings often; his mind voice comes across as excited and bright, like a chime being struck.

Likes:

Exploring: He is extremely curious and loves exploring with Xaeybl and on his own, carefully examining anything and everything that catches his interest.

Collecting: He loves interesting shapes, colors, textures, and reflective/shiny surfaces, and has collected quite a hoard of treasures. If you’ve lost something valuable, ask Xaeybl.

Dislikes:

Inactivity: If you are not napping, you should be doing.

Loud noises: He startles easily, and sudden noises (or being yelled at) upset him.

Discipline: He hates getting in trouble, and will mope and trill sadly to anyone who will listen for hours before he gets over it.


Member Info...

Anything Else:
He is best compared to an easily excitable pomeranian.

Dragon Details

Name:
Nicynth
Pronounced:
[ NIK-inth ]
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
24.06.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 20.6M
Mature Height: 5.1M
Mature Wingspan: 36.2M

General Appearance...

Nicynth is a bright Green dragon the color of spring. Most of her hide is painted in shades of bright, fresh grass, darkened in speckling along her wings, tail, and spine, along with some darker green stripes and matching undersails. Her upper wing membranes are a bright almost yellow hue, like buds on tiny plants, but this vividness is mellowed somewhat by a bluer green on her underbelly, headknobs, and feet.

She's a tiny thing, never destined to be very large, though she is tall and spindly with slightly larger than average wings. They aren't so big as to cause issues for her, but they do serve to make her look even narrower than she already does. While Nicynth is a rather clumsy dragon, it's an entirely different story in the air, where she becomes graceful and quick. Her speed is by far her greatest strength.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Nicynth is a very physically vocal dragon, and will communicate with chirps and trills to punctuate her comments to others. Her mind voice is bright and airy, almost like gentle sunlight in the morning, and her presence is distinctive in its clarity and constant curiosity.

Likes:
Liorith : Perhaps needless to say, but she'll dote on the Bronze who helped her nearly as much as she will on her own rider. No one will come before Xaeybl, but she'll utterly adore her brother.

Running in the Grass : As clumsy as she might be at times, Nicynth loves getting to go fast. And doubly so when she can feel something soft under her feet like the soft grass in the Bowl.

Dislikes:
Using Her Paws : From Hatching onward, this Green's claws will always be duller than normal and not much good for cutting or fine detail. Instead, Nicynth will adapt to using her mouth and teeth for tasks other dragons might use their paws for -- and she will be skilled in that.

Stormy Weather : Initially, it will mean they stay inside -- and later, she'll wish it still did. It's cold, unpleasant, and just not her idea of a good time.

Strengths:

* ANIMATED : Nicynth's energy more than makes up for her clumsiness. This Green barely seems aware that she's careening into others or tripping over her own feet, and she'll never be self-conscious or shy about it. But she'll always be ready to go and engage in whatever adventures Xaeybl does.

* CAUTIOUS : In contrast to her rider, though, this Green is a bit more measured and motivated by self-preservation. She won't seek to stifle Xaeybl, but she will do her best to think of what could go wrong and head it off at the pass. In that way, Nicynth wants to make sure they both stay safe enough to have a lot of adventures to come.

Weaknesses:

* PHYSICALITY : In this, Nicynth is markedly lacking. She's not strong; her build is spindly; her claws will never be as sharp as other dragons'; and she will ever be a slightly uncoordinated creature. While she will grow out of the abject clumsiness she hatched with, Nicynth will ever be easily over-balanced and not as agile as others of her color. But she is fast.

* GUILELESS : Why someone would be purposefully mean or deceptive is completely beyond her. Nicynth is a wholly sweet, thoughtful, and kind dragon, and considers everyone her friend -- though none more so than Xaeybl, Liorith, and Naeharie. She'll be the last to catch onto any mocking or plotting.

Dragon Speech Code:
Gradient Code : This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Text: #c9da00; Left BG: #128462; Right BG: #0c6a15

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. Additionally, please let us know if you would like Nicynth to be a Force Catch or not.

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 she suits your fancy! :love: When she's mature, Nicynth will Fly on 17.03 and 25.06. She will not be a Force Catch.
