Guest Info Plot & Events

Current Month
8.2591 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.

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.

Old Traditions, New Turn [ 4.8.2591; 3:12 PM ] || Event
« on: April 16, 2019, 12:33:15 PM »
Commotion was usually a bad thing. For all the progress that the people of Pern had made in their struggle to not only survive, but to thrive, their position was still tenuous. Delicate. And with Hunters, Snakes, sharpfish, and skycoursers all threats to contend with, not to mention whatever else the island might throw at them, could anyone really be blamed if their first instinct upon hearing a ruckus was to panic?

So when shouts went up around the Beast Hall, there were no doubt some who braced for bad news. Beasts taken ill? A birth gone badly? Faranth forbid, skycoursers?

But the skies were mercifully clear on this rare sunny day. So skycoursers, yes, but not in the way that might be feared:  rather, the treasured clutch kept warm in the barn was showing signs of hatching.

The shouts quickly turned to joyous ones, as those promised to the eggs were found among the animals and crops, collected, and ushered into the barn with congratulations and claps on the back. All under the watchful eyes of the senior Crafters in the Hall, lest they forget that this was an old tradition they were resurrecting in a new time, to keep their livestock and the future of Pern both safe from the dangers that threatened them.

This was progress.

Spoiler for OOC:
As always, feel free to respond here or check in at the OOC thread. Please see that topic for information about having a character imprint to a skycourser either now or in the future. Bear in mind that any Herders or Farmers imprinting at this event will have to have been previously approved by their Hall’s leadership. :love:

Elrost stood sentinel across one of the lengths of the barn, alongside the other senior craftsmen of their hall. Not that there were many of them, so they didn't exactly overwhelm the proceedings, but they were certainly keeping a watchful eye.

In his craft, Elrost had to become accustomed to some degree of chance. Sometimes calves were stillborn, sometimes the prime mother didn't get studded in the round you had been planning, and sometimes none of the females in the herd took to the bull you had been rearing for the season. Occasionally, you discovered a cause after the problem had been mitigated, other times it was simply the luck of the draw, and Elrost had... contented himself with that fact for the most part.

But everything about these skycoursers made him feel completely in the dark. The little they did know about the creatures was that they were dangerous and violent. Elrost felt the lump of warmth against his side where Harrier was curled up inside his shirt, her head just poking above his collar to observe the proceedings. He had considered leaving her behind, not knowing what would occur today and whether or not it would revive any unwelcome memories for the lizard.

But the hall had decided. They were going to attempt the skycourser endeavour, and as a senior journeyman, it was his duty to carry out the halls wishes. And so he stood and watched. Ellsk at attention beside him, although even now she was beginning to fidget, young Sensk attempting in vain not to be distracted by his older sister. And finally Harrier, watching the crafters being ushered into the barn with narrowed eyes.

He gave a few of the apprentices approving nods should they meet his eye, but mostly he thought of the upcoming imprinting and what it meant for the future of their craft.
