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.

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: Nye has always striven to make himself seem more important--more wanted--than he sees himself to be. As a result he’s always been well-kept, and his clothing well cared for; not to the detriment of an enjoyable childhood, but he was always pretty good at keeping himself entertained without causing too much damage to himself or his belongings. He has dark blue eyes and short, dark brown hair.
 
Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: While Nye felt sorrow for the hardships of Pern at large, he never had the luxury of having family to feel fear for or to protect; his mother surrendered him to the Creche as soon as she could, and while he knows who his father is, he doesn’t know his father beyond being able to identify him if he saw him. He was worried, of course he was, but more for selfishness’ sake than anything.
 
Response to dragon color mutations: To be perfectly honest, N’lyse didn’t know enough about the inner workings of the weyr, despite having lived within one his entire life, to have much of an opinion one way or another; he didn’t see it as his problem, viewing himself as someone who had a right to an opinion one way or another. He frankly doesn’t care.

Who are you...

Likes: Company: Nye regularly finds himself lingering (lurking, more like) on the outskirts of conversations, not really an active participant but certainly present nonetheless.
 
Swimming: Maybe it’s the rush of not knowing what could happen if something went wrong--but no, N’lyse had always loved the water, whether it was rain or standing puddles that he could splash his way through on stocky little toddler legs.
 
Quiet: His own solace is something that N’lyse values above all else when he needs it. He takes great pleasure in finding rarely-traveled places, and takes full advantage of those places once he finds them.
 
Dislikes: Bronzeriders: He knows his father is one, and from what little contact he had with his mother as a child, he knows that the man wasn’t particularly kind. It’s a knowledge that has colored his opinion of the color, and while he does his best to hide his instant dislike until the individual has proven themselves the same, he does slip up on occasion.
 
Firelizards: He finds them annoying. Too energetic and too quick.
 
Whers: Ironically, N’lyse has always found whers to be slightly too slow and (dare he say it) too dumb. They’re a little unnerving, if he’s completely honest with himself, and he does his best to avoid interacting with himself as much as possible.
 
Strengths:
 
* LOYAL: N'lyse takes himself pretty seriously, and as a result doesn't take particularly well to teasing; that stretches to being defensive of his family and those he considers family, whether blood-related or not--which now extends to include Izelith. He takes 'his' people's well-being very seriously and is quick to come to their defense if they need it.
 
* FEARLESS: Nye has no trouble running into...well, trouble. He enjoys the adrenaline rush--one might say he gets off on it--and doesn’t mind the rare occasions when he has someone to play off of, to feed off of. He’s very smart, but sometimes the excitement of the moment tends to make him forget himself.
 
* MANIPULATIVE: It’s a subtle thing with N’lyse, but part of growing up in a place where he had very little power and even less presence. He became very good at getting what he wanted without outright asking for it.
 
* FACETIOUS: N’lyse has always had a sense of humor, and he’s quick to attempt to diffuse tension (that isn’t caused by him, anyway) by trying to make people laugh; somewhat inappropriate at times, but he does his best.
 
* HARDY: Most of Pern hasn’t had it easy when it comes to living their life; N’lyse is certainly no different, but he’s one of the ones that came out all the stronger for it.
 
Weaknesses:
 
* JUDGEMENTAL: N’lyse is quick to make decisions on how he feels about people and things, and it can be very difficult to change his mind on the matter.
 
* AMBITIOUS: Eager to prove himself worthy of being Searched, and on a deeper level worthy of being a member of the Weyr at all.
 
* STUBBORN: The flipside of the ‘determined’ coin, N’lyse’s stubbornness is one of his primary downfalls; once he’s decided on a path, a plan, it’s very hard to dissuade him, whether it leads to his own detriment or someone else’s.
 
* BLUNT: Nye has never had much of a filter, and that hasn’t changed since he Impressed. He’s not particularly worried about other people’s opinions of him, and that comes out with the way he speaks to people on occasion.
 
* PERFECTIONIST: Nye takes himself very seriously, whether it's his work or his appearance, and at times that can get a little overwhelming for him; he tends to get stuck in a vicious cycle of 'not good enough' that it's difficult for him to get out of.
 
Describe Yourself:
 
* LONELY: Almost a self-inflicted problem for N’lyse, he’s always been very good at isolating himself, and tends to have a difficult time immersing himself in the social structure of the Weyr.
 
* CANDID: N’lyse does his best to be honest about everything. He’s very direct, and doesn’t hold much back for the sake of others’ pride.
 
* CHARISMATIC: Nye, despite some of his offputting qualities, can be an exceptionally personable person when he wants to be. Partially due to his upbringing in the Creche, where he had ample time as a child to watch and learn the ways people worked, N’lyse has an innate ability to judge people, their moods, and react accordingly. As a result he’s a generally well-liked individual, though there are certainly exceptions to that like there are anything else.
 
* SENSITIVE: It’s hidden deep below a well of sarcasm and prickly exterior, N’lyse is actually fairly intune with his own emotions and is pretty good at reading the faces and body language of others. He’s a pretty good judge of the image people put out, whether that’s their ‘true self’ or not.
 
* KEEN: Nye has always been a quick study, especially with things he’s interested in; he finds it easy to focus and easy to maintain that focus.
 
The Magic Touch: While Nye doesn't possess the musical abilities that his sister does, he does have an affinity for rhythm and the like; however, his Harper learning focused more on the history and teaching aspects than the musical ones. Most of his love for music is for the sake of Lyvele.

Family...

Mother: Belisse, Drudge. b. 2552, d. 2583.
Father: H’nye (Hohennye), Bronzerider. b. 2544.
 
Siblings: Lyvele is the only sibling that he knows of, and grew up with in the Creche; a sister through his mother, also the product of a losing dragonrider’s flightlust.
 
Lyvele, Jr. Journeywoman Harper b. 2565.
 
Children: It’s unlikely that he has had any children.

Tell us a story...

* 2567, 0 Nielyse is born to a drudge in Fort Weyr, the result of a Bronzerider losing a Flight and seeking relief elsewhere. Belysse surrenders the child to the Creche as soon as it’s safe for the child to do so.
 
* 2572, 5 Nielyse is approached by another child, a girl named Lyvele, who claims to be his sister. After hearing rumors from her mother of another child, the girl’s curiosity got the best of her. After that first meeting, the two become near-inseparable. It turns out to be the best decision of both their lives, though Nye doesn’t realize that for a while yet.
 
* 2577, 10 Lyvele is Apprenticed to the Harpers, having always been a rather lovely singer (and it being a secret love of hers for several Turns now anyway). It’s the first time in almost five Turns that the two don’t spend the night curled up together. Nye tries his best to be happy for her, but he can’t help the pang of jealousy, of hurt, of being left behind that takes root somewhere behind his ribs.
 
* 2579, 12 Somehow, Nielyse manages to follow in his sister’s footsteps and get Apprenticed with the Harpers. It’s a happy reunion (ignoring the fact that they never really spent much time apart, both taking every chance they could get to spend time together). It feels better, now, and while Nye never really harbored any sort of grudge against his half-sister he does feel some relief at the thought that they’re not quite going down different paths anymore.
 
* 2583, 16 The siblings learn that their mother died from a sickness earlier in the Turn, and while Nielyse never really got to know the woman, he does, for the first time, learn what true loss feels like. Grief is not an emotion he is accustomed to, nor is it one he’s particularly interested in experiencing again, if he can help it. He mourns Belysse, but doesn’t allow himself to linger on it beyond that.
 
* 2586, 19 Nielyse is Tapped and becomes a JR Journeyman, along with his sister. The timeline is something that both of them, in a way, planned; between Nielyse’s determination and Lyvele’s dedication to her brother, the two are Tapped mere months apart. Nye celebrates by getting raging drunk (and talking his sister into imbibing with him) and in a somewhat embarrassing turn of events the two end up in bed together. Nothing happens beyond sleeping, but it’s an occurrence they endeavor not to repeat and never to speak of again.
 
* 2587, 20 Nielyse is Searched, and much to his vague chagrin he’s pulled away from the Harpers. He’d never really expected to have any chance to become a dragonrider, and never had any particular desire to do so either. However, he’d always been the dutiful member of the population in that he’d do what was needed where it was needed, so it doesn’t take much time for him to come to the decision to become a Candidate, even if part of him is still convinced that he’ll inevitably return to the Harpers once his time is up.
 
* 2590, 23 Impresses at Kalestath's eventful clutch; his feelings are incredibly mixed, as he never really expected to Impress. Several Turns having to learn the inner workings of the Weyr and he'd fully expected to walk away without a bond. When he Impressed, he stumbled into a whole different world that he'd never expected to truly be a part of, and his equilibrium has been disturbed because of it--though he wouldn't trade this--any of it--for the world.
 
---

There was the inescapable sound of rain falling all around them, splatters of liquid hitting the trees and ground, even the man and his dragon as they stood in the midst of the storm.  His clothing clung to him, making him feel heavy and slow.  N’lyse had always liked water, and that included the rain that poured quite frequently and heavily during autumn, the monsoon season. Most everyone tended to remain inside during the heaviest falls, if they could escape going out in the storm.  Not N’lyse.  He took the opportunity to have some quiet to himself, interrupted only by the pattering of the raindrops.

They had finished their lunch with a half a candlemark to spare before he would have to see to his afternoon training.  They could have remained in the weyrling barracks and socialized, but N’lyse hadn’t been in the mood to deal with the bronzes today.  So often he could tolerate their existence, could endure their company.  Not today, when it was so much nicer to go outside and be alone, safe from having to spend time with the others. 

It was that sentiment that had Izelith joining him, beyond the obvious affection and devotion between the pair.  The black had even less love for the oppressive bullies that were the bronzes he’d been forced to spend much of his time with since his hatching.  One in particular was least loved, but they were all mostly the same.  While the young black generally preferred humid, sunny summer days, he would tolerate the warm enough torrential downpour for the excuse to be away from the others.

The black sidled up beside his partner, careful not to shield the man from the rain he so appreciated being drenched in.  There were no words between them at the moment, simply silent companionship.  This time, this moment shared, would be lost shortly.  They both knew that N’lyse would need to return to the barracks to change into dry clothing before they could return to their training, yet another escape from having to face the bronzes and their riders for a few more minutes. 

N’lyse gave a small sigh, his right hand moving to the dark hide on Izelith’s left foreleg in a simple touch.  The moment of reprise was gone, and he would need to return to face the others in his class.  The black dragons outnumbered the bronze in Izelith’s clutch, but overall there were far more bronze dragons in the Weyr than there were black.  They had for so long been doted upon, given rank and privilege, and were allowed to treat others as lesser beings.  Just as his father had treated his mother.  N’lyse hoped that the day would come when bronzes would learn that they weren’t as wonderful as they believed themselves to be.  They were already going a step in the right direction with the Weyrleader riding a black dragon, siring the senior queen’s clutches. 

We are returning to the barracks so that you may stop looking like a rainsoaked canine? Izelith asked gently, eying his rider through one slowly churning green colored eye.  N’lyse smiled at the black, but simply nodded in response before turning and walking the short distance to the barracks entrance.  There was a chance that he would change into dry clothes purely to become soaked again if the training was to be held out during the storm, but it was a chance he was willing to take.  The rain had never bothered him.  The bronzeriders, even just the weyrlings, always had.

Dragon Details

Name:
Izelith
Pronounced:
[ IZZ-eh-lith ]
Color:
Black
Date of Birth:
34.06.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 37.8M
Mature Height: 8.2M
Mature Wingspan: 64M

General Appearance...

Izelith is an attractive charcoal gray in color, faintly spotted and mottled with lighter hues of graphite, pewter, and even silver. The underside of his body is by and large the darkest part of him, though it looks soft rather than glossy or shiny. It's his spine, the top of his neck, and his headknobs that look almost metallic. Lightening into an ash grey, that part of his body is also speckled with flecks of silver that seem dull in low light and brighten into true brilliance in the sun. His wings echo the gradient of his body but in reverse, with the outer edges in ash and silver, and the parts closer to his body the same charcoal color as the underside of his body.

While he hatches as a fairly small and narrow creature, Izelith will not stay that way. He'll go through quick and dramatic growth spurts as he ages, and will grow into a huge, tall monster that rivals Neisoth in size. His wingspan will be utterly massive, and will blot out the sky behind him when he flies. He'll be a powerful flier and fighter both, but Izelith will miss out on air speed and finesse due to his size. One day, he'll be just as big as the bully of a Bronze that, in his opinion, attacked him when he was most vulnerable.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Izelith's voice is a playful croon, pleasing to the ear and well-suited for compliments, conversation, and making others feel like they're the center of his attention. His presence is a little more subtle and nuanced than some other Blacks', and no one would ever accuse him of being simple minded. He sounds positively wicked when he's teasing, and he's forward enough to say things that might make other people blush.

Likes:
Danger : He's something of an adrenaline junkie, and Izelith will be the last person to talk N'lyse out of something reckless. He's just not good at being the voice of reason. Rather, he'd prefer to jump into things feet first along with his rider because when they do, what can possibly stop them?

Heat : He gets cold easily, and Fort Island's autumns and winters will be his least favorite time. Izelith will bask in the sun whenever he can, and happily paddle around in the water if he ever gets a chance to do so safely. The hot tropical weather doesn't bother him; instead, he thrives in it.

Dislikes:
Bronzes : It's something that will stick with him for life, after the events of his Hatching. He sees them as entitled bullies, and who are long overdue for being ousted from their thrones. Izelith is borderline paranoid about them, and will never trust one unless they earn his regard in some serious way -- and they will be the exception rather than the rule.

Boredom : He's a dragon of action, and doesn't like having nothing to do. It doesn't necessarily have to be training or work -- Izelith will enjoy debates, battles of wits, and teasing or flirtation with other dragons. His mind is just very active, and he doesn't respond well to a lack of stimulus.

Strengths:

* CHARMING : Izelith is a smooth talker, good at the give and take of conversation, and outgoing enough to make good use of it. He'll have little difficulty winning people over so long as they aren't steadfastly set against his color, and he may even succeed in swaying those that initially are. As he grows, this talent will be particularly used on females of his species once he starts showing an interest in them, and them in him.

* CUNNING : This Black dragon is smart, sly, and some might even say deviously so. He's quick on the uptake, and not a lot goes over his head. Izelith might not be a strategist, but he learns quickly and isn't caught off guard by much. If he's trained into it, he'll have a good grasp of combat in the heat of the moment, and his size will make him a formidable opponent for any Hunter he ever encounters.

Weaknesses:

* IMPULSIVE : Izelith acts first and thinks later. He's a creature of instinct and impulse, and though his reactions will be more appropriate as time goes on, he'll never be one for strategizing or analyzing. This tendency may also get him in trouble throughout his life, as he'll jump into a fight without really considering the repercussions of it first.

* LAID BACK : For a Black dragon, Izelith is remarkably relaxed. He has difficulty taking things seriously, and there may be some adjustment for both him and N'lyse since Izelith will playfully tease his rider. Even in emergencies or tense situations, he's the sort to respond with humor and bravado.
