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!

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

Cbox in the New Year
« on: January 02, 2019, 10:10:04 AM »
Heya!

So over the course of the holidays, the cbox sub expired and I just replaced it with the discord widget on the sidebar. Discord seems to be the general thing most places are doing now-a-days anyway, and it's easier to keep track of when I'm not sitting on the webpage, or when I'm out and about trying to be an adult.

That being said, rather than just ripping the carpet out from under everyone, I did want to know what you gais would prefer. Just discord? Maybe a simple cbox instead of the fancy one we had before? I really hesitant to go back to the one we had before given how much it was and the like, when there is a cheaper, and easier, alternative, but I'm not against having the standard cbox up if that's something everyone prefers.

I'm good with just about anything, though. 8D I usually sit in discord even when I'm not on the site, so that's the easiest thing for me.  :bird: Lemme know, eh?

I like the cbox. For me it seems to serve a different purpose? I like just chatting on Discord and having more site-related chats in the cbox. It also seems a little friendlier to have a cbox cause you can see what's going on without having to join the discord if you're just checking a place out.

That being said. I use both with equal measure. So it doesn't affect my personal use at all, just my two cents - keeping a simple cbox seems nice.

I think a simple cbox is still a good thing to have around. For me, joining a discord feels like I'm stepping into something private, so not something I'm comfortable with before knowing people and the environment. Cboxes seem to help people dip their toes but not make that full commitment before they know what monsters they're about to gallivant with.

Also maybe it'll help orient people a little more than just having the discord, which can be overwhelming especially if you don't have any experience with it.

Fund wise, lemme know if I can help <3

The simple cbox is $2 a month, which is easily doable. The premium one we had before was $9. Which we didn't mind paying when we were all spamming it. Since the popular move to discord largely, it doesn't make much sense to continue doing but I hear whatcha mean about just wanting to poke around.

In order to down grade the cbox we had, we need to renew it at the premium price for whatever reason so it'll be a week or so before Alan and I have the extra cash to do that, then I'll get the simple box set up. We have domain registration and RL bothering us first. 8D
