Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
4.2590 A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every 4 or 5 OOC days. 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 Flits here, as well as whers.  There are Candidate events and classes and Crafter plots. 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, semi-canon Pern set beyond the 9th Pass with an altered time line. This means things have been shaken up quite a bit. We also feature 2 mutations of dragons, with roles and positions available for just about anyone. We like active players and creative writers. Even if you're new to Pern, don't hesitate. We're happy to help you get settled in!

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

AIVAS is discovered. It sets Pern on the track for the previous detonations, believing that its initiative will fix the Red Star's orbit and allow Pern to be free from Thread afterthe end of the current Pass. The AI also hatches a plan called "Overkill" to release chemical pods in the Red Star's atmosphere in order to consume the Thread spores.
Active Weyrs: Benden, Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Bitra, Benden, Keroon, Monaco, Lemos, Nerat, Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

2530 BR
Bitra Hold becomes the first Hold on the Northern Continent to be lost under the extended Threafalls. Unprepared and exhausted dragon riders simply fail to protect all of Bitra's land holdings. Large burrows of landed Thread destroy much of the valley around the Hold, forcing survivors to brave an evacuation shepherded by already-taxed dragon riders. Significant casualties here are the first indication to the rest of Pern that their defenses may no longer be adequate.
Active Weyrs: Benden, Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Benden, Keroon, Monaco, Lemos, Nerat, Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Beastcraft, Dolphineer, Farmer, Fisher, Glass-smith, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Tannercraft, Technist, Weaver, and Vinter.
2536 BR
Fall of Benden Hold and the Vinter Crafthall. Over time, the fertile farmlands and smaller Holds around Benden begin to fall as Bitra did. This turn, with trade routes rapidly shutting down for fear of being caught out during Threadfall, Benden is forced to evacuate because it lacks sustainable supplies.
Active Weyrs: Benden, Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Keroon, Monaco, Lemos, Nerat, Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

2539 BR
Fall of Keroon Hold and Beastcraft Hall. The next major wave of Threadfall hits Keroon, destroying many of its satellite holds despite the efforts of Igen's dragon riders. Decimation to the populations of livestock in the area further hamper efforts to keep the region's Holds safe and secure.
Active Weyrs: Benden, Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Monaco, Lemos, Nerat, Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Farmer, Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Tannercraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2540 BR
Monaco Hold becomes the first Hold on the Southern Continent to be lost under the extended Threadfalls. As the Threadfalls begin to hit the Southern Continent, it becomes clear that the amount of Thread is overcoming the engineered grubs designed to keep the area safe. The smaller number of dragon riders are not prepared for this contingency, and lose the first of the Southern Holds.
Active Weyrs: Benden, Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Lemos, Nerat, Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Farmer, Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Tannercraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2541 BR
Fall of Lemos Hold. After Lemos' hardwood stands succumb to Thread, the Hold itself is not far behind. With no Holds in the region left to defend, Benden Weyr is abandoned, and survivors disperse to the other weyrs. The significance of this event is not lost on the rest of Pern: Benden, the weyr that sought to tame the Red Star, is the first to fall to its wrath.
Active Weyrs: Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Nerat, Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Farmer, Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Tannercraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2543 BR
Fall of Nerat Hold and its associated Farmer Crafthall. With so many holders ranged up and down the coast to the north and south of Nerat, Ista's dragonriders are unable to defend every square foot of land. As smaller holds in the region steadily fall back, retreating closer and closer to Nerat Hold, the region's resources become increasingly strained. Eventually, the Hold and Crafthall are reluctantly abandoned as unsustainable.
Active Weyrs: Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Tannercraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2545 BR
Loss of upper Igen section. A few turns later, Igen Weyr -- even supplemented by dragon riders from Ista and fallen Benden -- relinquish a large portion of land to the north of Igen Hold.
Active Weyrs: Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Igen, Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Tannercraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2546 BR
Fall of Igen Hold and the Tanner Crafthall. With so many of the other farming communities lost on the eastern side of the Northern Continent, Igen and its large population of refugees are unable to support everyone looking for shelter. They are systematically sent to other Holds to balance the damage, but many are also lost in the evacuations.
Active Weyrs: Igen, Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2547 BR
Loss of lower Telgar section. Even with supplemental riders from Benden, the constant casualties suffered by riders at Igen Weyr eventually render them unable to hold the land below Telgar. Igen Weyr is abandoned, and the few remaining survivors disperse to other weyrs.
Active Weyrs: Telgar, Ista, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort Weyrs.

Active Holds: Ista, Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2549 BR
Fall of Ista Hold. An extended Threadfall over Ista Island decimates the populations of holders, weyrfolk, and dragon riders. As their numbers steadily dwindle under the constant onslaught of Thread, Ista is unable to hold onto the island. The casualties here are extreme, and few make it out alive save by the grace of lucky dragon riders. Ista Weyr is abandoned, and survivors disperse to other weyrs.
Active Weyrs: Telgar, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Telgar, Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Plastic-smith, Printer, Smithcraft, Technist, and Weaver.
2551 BR
Fall of Telgar Hold and its Smith Crafthall - as well as the Technist and Plastic-smith. Telgar's Lord Holder initially fights the insistence that he should consider preemptively evacuating some of the holders in the area to other regions. Ultimately, this stubbornness results in casualties that rival Ista's in their completeness. No matter the precautions taken by Weyr and Hold alike, Pern is coming apart at the seams.
Active Weyrs: Telgar, Eastern, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Paradise River, Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Printer, and Weaver.
2555 BR
Fall of Paradise River Hold. The Southern Continent is likewise being pounded by Threadfall, and the grubs fail to keep it under control as it comes down so heavily. The lower numbers of dragon riders in the region make it impossible to hold. Eastern Weyr is abandoned, and survivors disperse to other weyrs.
Active Weyrs: Telgar, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Southern Boll, Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Glass-smith, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, Printer, and Weaver.
2558 BR
Fall of Southern Boll and its Weaver and Glass-smith Crafthalls. Like the Holds before it, Southern Boll's steadily dwindling resources force it to close. The once lush tropical lands around the Hold and Crafthall are stripped almost completely bare by the Thread that the dragon riders fail to destroy. The western portion of the Northern Continent begins to truly feel the vice grip of the steadily nearing Thread.
Active Weyrs: Telgar, Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Crom, Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, Minecraft, and Printer.
2561 BR
Fall of Crom Hold and its Miner Crafthall. Telgar Weyr is abandoned, and survivors disperse to other weyrs. Already short on resources that some of the other Holds had previously taken for granted, Crom quickly buckles under Threadfall. Nevertheless, its denizens are not well-received in the already crowded Holds to the south. Even with catastrophic casualties all over Pern, the small amount of land left to the survivors threatens to prove inadequate.
Active Weyrs: Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Nabol, Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, and Printer.
2563 BR
Fall of Nabol Hold. As conflicts begin to arise between the refugees and natives of the remaining Holds, fights break out over dissimilar interests and goals. In the case of Nabol, the dissension leaves them disorganized and suspicious. Casualties continue to pile up as a result of Thread, and Nabol alienates High Reaches Weyr after its Lord Holder accuses the dragon riders of being responsible for Pern's apparent apocalypse. While the dragon riders do not refuse to protect the Hold, it strains relations. Ultimately, the Hold's internal conflict brings it down and causes its Holders to abandon it in favor of evacuating to one of the few others remaining on the Northern Continent.
Active Weyrs: Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Ruatha, Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, and Printer.
2564 BR
Fall of Ruatha Hold. Not long after Nabol closes its gates for the last time, Ruatha retreats to Fort Hold in order to consolidate what few resources are left, and diminish the strain on the Weyrs that remain to protect them. At last, the number of casualties has begun to ease the burden on Pern's resources.
Active Weyrs: Southern, High Reaches, and Fort.

Active Holds: Southern, Delta, Dorado, Ierne Island, High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Dolphineer, Harper, Healer, and Printer.
2567 BR
Fall of Southern Hold, Delta Hold, Dorado Hold, and Ierne Island - and the Dolphineer Crafthall. Southern Weyr is abandoned, and survivors disperse to other weyrs. With so few people remaining on Pern, those on the Southern Continent decide to retreat north into Fort Hold and Weyr to consolidate their manpower and resources.
Active Weyrs: High Reaches and Fort.

Active Holds: High Reaches, Tillek, and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Harper, Healer, and Printer.
2568 BR
Fall of High Reaches Hold. Despite being relatively safe from Thread among its mountainous, rocky terrain, the downfall of High Reaches Hold is its isolation from the few remaining bastions of resources. Its holders unanimously decide to retreat from the Hold, scattering to Tillek and Fort as they see fit.
Active Weyrs: High Reaches and Fort.

Active Holds: Tillek and Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Fisher, Harper, and Healer.
2571 BR
Tillek Hold and its nearby Fisher Crafthall fall to Thread. Despite the efforts of High Reaches Weyr, the land around Tillek becomes too dangerous for those living there. Remaining survivors from it and High Reaches Weyr evacuate to Fort Weyr and Hold -- the last defensive stronghold on the northern continent.
Active Weyrs: Fort.

Active Holds: Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Harper and Healer.
2587 AR
End of 9th Pass in the first month, beginning of 9th Interval. The survivors at Fort Weyr and Fort Hold send out riders to assess the damage to the Northern Continent and deem it a loss. The next wave of riders is sent out to find a new home for the survivors that remains free of Thread. D'mir of Bronze Thianorth finds an island chain far to the west of the Northern Continent, claiming the largest and naming it Fort Island. Southern Winds Weyr is founded in the second month -- and every single person from both Fort Weyr and Fort Hold move in by the middle of month seven, leaving the Northern and Southern Continents completely abandoned. Kalestath's first clutch on the island yields a mysterious egg that hatches into Pern's first black dragon -- Neisoth -- who Impresses to S'bok.
Active Weyrs: Fort and Southern Winds.

Active Holds: Fort.

Active Crafthalls: Harper and Healer.
2589 AR
Present day. Kalestath has risen for another mating flight, and S'bok, rider of Black Neisoth, claims the position of Weyrleader. Now new eggs sit on Southern Winds' Hatching Sands, and the riders of the weyr speculate what other mutations might result from this peculiar coupling.
Active Weyrs: Southern Winds.

Active Holds: None.

Active Crafthalls: Harper and Healer; others marginally active.

Month 7

Summary:
Three of SWW's Wings -- Beach, Jungle, and Prairie -- are assigned to protection and construction detail at the new Hold site. The development on the Hold continues as Crafthalls negotiate with the Holders for space. Oriath clutches at the end of the month, but the celebration is overshadowed by the death of Jungle's Wingleader, S'tas.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
02 - Steward & Headwoman Nominations - OOC
Maeron calls together the Holders and asks for volunteers for the open position of Steward and Headwoman to help with the set up and construction of First Hold.
07 - Crafthall Decisions - OOC
At this meeting, Maeron will be discussing which Crafthalls will be given space first. Since they will be instrumental in the construction of the Hold itself, the Miners and Smiths will likely begin work first, in order to smooth the construction process as much as possible.
15 - Wing Assignments - OOC
With the construction of First Hold gearing up to move forward, the weyr leadership is looking for riders to guard and defend the workers who will be beginning construction at the base of the mountain. S'bok has called for a meeting with the Wingleaders and Weyrseconds, intending to collect the names of riders that the Wingleaders think will be good additions to the defense of the new Hold.
16 - Wing Announcements - OOC
Following the rumor-mill of the Wingleaders’ meeting with the Weyrleader, the Wing assignments have been posted in the Weyr Hall. 
18 - Niema's Vorloruth Flies - OOC
It's Vorloruth's time to fly and she's not too choosey about who might chase her. Brown, Blue, or Bronze.
20 - A'lori's Vanity Clutches - OOC
And thus begins SWW’s first IC flit clutch!
26 - Vanelwynne's Oriath Clutches - OOC
We ask that all ranked Riders respond with at least cursory congratulations and speculation on the new clutch. Beyond that, Candidates should be doubly excited. In two months time, the eggs will have hardened and they'll be able to Stand for Impression.
28 - Jungle Wing's Loss - OOC
That's right. S'tas, Jungle Wing's Wingleader, is dead. Lost trying to save Riders that were overrun by Hunters. This leaves a huge sense of defeat in the Wing, but the position of Wingleader open.
Month 8

Summary:
Jungle Wing elects a new wingleader while Beach ferries people down to the new Mountain Base. Unfortunately, the hunters attack the base and kill twelve and injure many more. Beach Wing gains a new wingsecond, K'mar, in light of one of their former 'seconds being injured in the attack.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
01 - A Change in Leadership - OOC
In the wake of S'tas' death, the riders of Jungle Wing have elected a new Wingleader. The weyr now gathers to officially congratulate L'andis on his promotion.

Evesa's Seriath rises for her Flight late in the evening, after Beach Wing has returned from guarding First Hold.
13 - Desolated Weyrs - OOC
The construction on the Hold has driven up the need for tools, supplies, and seeds for farming. The riders of Mountain Wing are now taking volunteers to Fort Weyr and the Smith Crafthall to look for supplies.
14 - Renewed Construction - OOC
The riders, Holders, and Crafters are returning to the site of First Hold to continue construction. The wall around the site is partway finished, the Miners have begun to hollow out the caverns at the foot of the mountain, and farmland is being readied in the clearing.
24 - Ishanae's Lelath Flies - OOC
Ishanae's Lelath rises for her second Flight, and she has a taste for Bronzers.
28 - First Coordinated Hunter Attack - OOC
Tragedy strikes Southern Winds Weyr in the first coordinated Hunter attack. Twelve people are dead at the site of First Hold, including four dragon riders from Beach Wing. Many more are injured.
30 - An Unfortunate Advance - OOC
Among those injured in the attack was S'lar, one of Beach's Wingseconds. With the man in stable but critical condition, and the path of his recovery proving to be a long one, Wingleader M'rek has promoted K'mar of Berynth to take his place. It's unclear whether the appointment will be permanent.
32 - T'hir's Darling Flies - OOC
Jungle Wingrider T'hir's Darling has her Flight late in the evening, and she isn't choosy about the males who Fly her.
Month 9

Summary:
Imyth clutches on the second half of the Hatching Sands. With morale down, Lord Holder Maeron meets with his holders and push for guards from the riders. Jungle Wing and Beach Wing begin guarding down at the construction site. Early in the month, Jungle's Wingleader, L'andis, is killed by Hunters; Senior Weyrwoman Halirina promotes R'sin to the position. The Fisher Crafthall start pushing for a space of their own. Oriath's clutch hatches at the end of the month.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
01 - Imyth Clutches - OOC
Eimerra's Imyth lays a healthy clutch of 13 eggs on the Hatching Sands. We ask that all ranked Riders respond with at least cursory congratulations and speculation on the new clutch. Beyond that, Candidates should be doubly excited. In two months time, the eggs will have hardened and they'll be able to Stand for Impression.
02 - Rally the Holders - OOC
In the wake of the Hunter attack last month, Maeron calls a secret meeting to bolster the confidence of the Holders and once again call for the aid of the dragon riders. Faltering now is not an option, he argues, and he calls for the weyrleadership to once again send the Wings to defend construction.
04 - Returning to Construction - OOC
Maeron's push for support from the weyrleadership was successful. With the Wings' schedules having been altered accordingly, both Jungle Wing and Beach Wing will now trade guard duty at the site of First Hold.
10 - Korinth's Flight - OOC
T'hir's Korinth rises for her mating Flight late at night after Jungle Wing's duties have ended.
15 - Desolated Weyrs II - OOC
Mountain Wingrider L'del finds a large cache of well-preserved supplies important to the Fisher Crafthall and brings them back to the weyr.
16 - Flit Vanity's Clutch Hatches - OOC
The eggs that A'lori gave away are finally hatching. All twenty of Vanity's eggs hatch with healthy baby firelizards to their various owners throughout the weyr.
17 - Niazyth's & Tinth's Flights - OOC
Siblings Q'nys and Seaphonellqua's dragons rise at the same time, splitting the male dragons of the weyr with two Greens to chase at the same time. Niazyth chooses her winner, but Tinth demands a force catch and a worthy mate.
20 - Fishing Time - OOC
As food starts to become scarcer in the weyr, the Fisher Crafthall tables the idea that they need a real Hall. Only with the proper venue can they best make use of the supplies and resources they have to supplement the weyr's diet.
21 - Oriath's Clutch Touching - OOC
Now that the eggs have finished hardening, Oriath is allowing the Candidates to enter the Sands and touch the eggs -- an important ritual that takes place before each Hatching.
20 - Rider's Bet II - OOC
Once the Candidates have cleared off the Sands, the riders and their dates gather to drink, celebrate, and bet on what colors will hatch from what eggs.
32 - Oriath's and Leremith's Clutch Hatches - OOC
Around lunchtime, Oriath and the other dragons start humming to indicate the arrival of the new hatchlings. The Candidates are quick to gather on the Sands, followed by those who want to spectate the Hatching. All 16 eggs hatch healthily and Impress without the mishaps of Kalestath's last clutch.
Month 10

Summarry:
D'mir, Weyrsecond through Imyth, is demoted without explanation. The Fisher Crafthall and Mountain Wing spend a day at the abandoned Crafthall near Tillek to gather supplies. Both hunters and beach snakes attack, though in the Hunter attack it's the wher that provide the alarm. Imyth's Touching finishes out the end of the Turn.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
1 - D'mir's Demotion - What actually happened.
D'mir, rider of Bronze Thianorth and current Weyrsecond through his flight with Eimerra's Imyth has been demoted. The Weyrleadership has refused to give any specific reason for this sudden punishment and despite any and all questions, D'mir likewise refuses to comment. There is no IC thread for characters to participate in, this is simply an announcement that the whole of the Weyr will be quickly aware of. Feel free to check in with your characters however, and start rumors or conversations. You are more than welcome to create threads revolving around hearing this rumor or reacting to it.
3 - Desolated Halls - OOC
Since progress on the small Fisher Crafthall at Southern Winds is progressing smoothly despite the bad weather, the Fishers have called for the help of Mountain Wing to retrieve lost supplies from the abandoned Fisher Crafhall near Tillek Hold. In the interest of keeping a tight schedule, the Riders and Crafters alike have decided that a one-day, all-out expedition will be best for their purposes. As it stands, Master Fisher Phenust has been gathering Crafter, Weyrfolk, and Holdfolk volunteers to accompany the dragon riders on this day.
9 - Hunter Attack - OOC
Another Hunter attack. Surely, given the nice weather of the day it was almost bound to happen. But it wasn't Jungle's Riders that caught wind of the attack first, but the Crafter's Whers! Given their early alarm, the Riders have a chance to get one up on the Hunters. Most crafters were able to hide away in the Mountain base while the Riders chased away the Hunters.
13 - Dangerous Cove - OOC
Luck does not seem to be on the survivors’ side this month; in the wake of the Hunter attack, another fit of violence has erupted at the Cove where Beach Wing and Prairie Wing are helping the Fishers. This event will serve to drive home just how dangerous the island really is, and remind residents that even having a dragon is no guarantee of safety against the Snakes.
23 - Imyth's Touching & Rider's Bet - Touching OOC - Bet OOC
Thirteen eggs on the sands for the candidates to fawn over and the Riders to drink and take bets on. A small clutch from the younger Queen with a bit to prove. The bets weren't necessarily kind, but no one was willing to say anything untoward around the Queen herself.
36 - End of Turn - OOC
As the sun sets on the last day of 2589, the entire weyr begins its long nightly celebrations to welcome the new turn. Food rations have been lifted for the night to allow for a feast (or as much of one as the weyr can muster), and the remaining alcohol not consumed at the Rider’s Bets has been gathered for the festivities. This is one of the weyr’s only celebrations where everyone is invited—Holders, Riders, and Weyrfolk alike. Even Candidates and Weyrlings are allowed to attend:  though the Weyrlings are heavily suggested not to consume alcohol in order to keep from alarming their dragonets or making poor decisions because of lowered inhibitions.

Month 1

Summary:
The turn starts with another beach snake attack, killing many -- including one of Beach's Wingseconds, Iradin. In her place, Y'an is promoted. The next day, Imyth's clutch hatches but four dragonets go between without Impressing. Kalestath rises and is again caught by Niesoth. S'bok then gathers some riders for a secret hunt in the jungle, without Halirina's knowledge. The Minehall opens officially, leading Maeron to call for laborers to help in the construction of the Hold.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
01 - The Morning After - OOC
It's a terribly foggy morning and the celebrants from the End of Turn Celebration wake up for another day on Pern. it's cold and early, but they take to their chores on the beach. It's there, with the lack of wind, that the Beach Snakes, have crept farther up on shore than they might have otherwise and launch an attack on the crafters, candidates assigned there for their morning chores, and the Riders there to supervise and protect. It's a disasterous morning after what was a grand End of Turn.
02 - Imyth & Thianorth's Clutch Hatches - OOC
Less than a day after the deaths of Candidates and Riders on the Beach, Imyth's clutch hatches early in the afternoon. The already ill-omened clutch proves to be the second disaster of the turn, with four of the thirteen dragonets going Between without Impressing.
05 - Kalestath's Flight - OOC
Bright and early, Kalestath wakes the entire Weyr with a roar to announce her Flight. She’s swift to Blood her kill, and even quicker to take to the skies, leaving any potential suitor very little time to scramble into their clothes, climb on their dragon to be dropped off in her weyr, and give chase. If anything, one would say Neisoth has a bit of a head start since S'bok is already there and Neisoth was chased off of the ledge early on.
08 - Vorloruth's Flight - OOC
Niema's Green Vorloruth takes to the skies for a Flight during lunchtime.
12 - Secret Hunt - OOC
Early in the evening, after drills and duties for the day have been completed, S'bok calls a meeting of the Wingleaders with the intention of gathering volunteers for a hunt. Food is a scarce commodity in the Weyr and more than ever, every bit counts. He plans to take the jungle by storm and haul in more than they have before.
20 - Beginning of Mine Hall - OOC
While many people in the weyr think that the Hold construction is a pointless and dangerous waste of time, this event celebrates the real progress that has been made since the work began. While the Hold has yet to be made livable, the separate section of tunnels and caverns carved out for the Mine Hall has been completed. Now, Craftmaster Miner Castivill and the rest of his Crafters are hosting a gala to showcase what they’ve accomplished. Those attending will be treated to lunch at the Hall and can go on guided tours to see what has been built.
22 - Laborers Wanted - OOC
Maeron is drawing a clear line in the politics of the weyr now with construction moving forward. With the excitement of the Mine Hall Gala waning in the air, he's striking at the heart of the Weyr. He makes a move at the Weyrfolk, hoping to encourage some of them to 'become holders' and help out with the construction.
36 - Yumiath's Flight - OOC
Maerysa's Green Yumiath Rises late in the night.
Month 2

Summary:
S'bok arranges a second secret hunt. The Crafthalls, riding on the success of the Minehall, join together and push for increased recognition of all the crafts. With an influx of volunteers, they work on clearing the land around the Mine Hall. The noise and people attract hunters again, leading to massive casualities of riders, holders, and whers alike.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
04 - Eldereth's Flight - OOC
Late in the evening N'aen's Eldereth takes to the sky with a bugle of her own, announcing her Flight.
07 - Secret Hunt II - OOC
With the success of the last Secret Hunt still relatively fresh in the minds of the Weyr, the Weyrleader has called yet another, asking for volunteers to join in yet another late night hunt.
15 - Craft Halls Unite - OOC
In the wake of the successful Mine Hall opening, the Crafters have grown bolder in demanding recognition and supplies from the weyr. Master Miner Castivill and Master Fisher Phenust have struck an alliance in the interest of procuring both space and supplies. The two of them have already been passing word among the Crafters to find willing volunteers, but during this lunch they will be expanding their search and taking names of those who are either riders or wher handlers and willing to help them. 
26 - Clearing Land at Mine Hall - OOC
With an influx of volunteers they’d gained during their push in the Weyr Hall, the crafters, holders, and weyrfolk alike are bound and determined to tear up a large portion of the jungle before Hunter activity can get too dangerous. However, the noise of their endeavor attracts the attention of the Hunters, resulting in the most coordinated and disastrous attack to date.
Month 3

Summary:
Halirina places the weyr on lockdown in light of the hunter attack. Riders will no longer provide support to the Hold or Crafts outside the weyr. Oriath Rises and is caught by Leremith. S'bok calls for a third secret hunt, broadcasting the order to the whole weyr. In light of all of this, the Fishercrafthall reveals their project: a dock and a larger ship to be used for fishing.
Spoiler for Specific Dated Events & Links:
1Weyr Lockdown
No one needs to be told the weyr is a mess after the last attack. Riders were injured, some severely, people were taken by the hunters, and a slew of wher were slaughtered. This has left the weyr in a state of - well, it's messy. This is an order coming down from Halirina, to the Wingleaders R'sin, M'rek, Z'tai, and even W'sar, and thus trickling down to the Rider's themselves. No one steps out of line, no one does any unauthorized flying. Riders stick to their schedules. No more babysitting at Mine Hall. Flights between the Hall and the Weyr are rather limited and only done if absolutely necessarily - approved by the Wingleaders themselves.
12Oriath’s FlightOOC
Midday around lunchtime, Vanelwynne’s Oriath bloods a kill and takes to the skies for her annual Flight. It’s in the midst of one of the busiest parts of the day that she Rises, meaning that any duties, drills, or chores typically taking place after lunch are delayed for another day at least. For many, this will mean a quick and awkward rush to weyrs and personal chambers before things become too heated. For those participating in the Flight itself, it will mean a dash to Vanelwynne’s weyr as their dragons seek to chase Oriath. B’ron of Leremith wins.
19Secret Hunt IIIOOC
The Weyr is on Lockdown. With the most recent tragedy at the Mine Hall fresh in the minds of every single person on the island, it's hard not to feel trapped and helpless. S'bok refuses to be one of the mindless wherry cowering before tragedy and loss and has called for another Secret Hunt. The call has gone out to the whole Weyr, direct from the Weyrleader and includes a less than gentle threat that those refusing to participate must either be injured and dying (he's not being very forgiving at the moment) or have been told to remain behind by a superior. As always he will actually concede to the decisions of the Wingleaders. However, he believes those refusing to participate for fear of Hunters or Halirina's wrath are cowards. The Weyr needs to be fed.
33Boat Construction UnveilingOOC
Despite the current tensions between Hold and Weyr, the efforts that previous cooperation have yielded were not in vain. As a result of the scouring of old Holds and Halls, as well as the (however ill-fated) endeavors to clear some trees at the edge of the jungle, there has been an influx of wood and supplies valuable to the Fisher Hall. With a rare surplus, the Fishers have been able to build an actual dock—albeit one—as well as an even more exciting project:  the first vessel bigger than a rowboat that has been seen on Pern in many Turns.
