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.

See previous events here!

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.

[ 29.7.2589 ] Lost Wingleader & Wingriders
« on: April 24, 2014, 08:29:26 PM »

29.07.2589 / 6AM

Life on Pern is rough. And the Riders that face the threats in the jungle every day risk more than most. But no one was expecting the blow to fell S'tas. Jungle's Wingleader. He responded to a distress call from four Riders and none of them returned. It was L'ale and L'nal who reported the loss.

This leaves Jungle Wing presently without a Leader. Given the attitude prevailing in the Wing, it may be several days or more before a new one is selected. While most of Jungle Wing comprises arrogant Riders, most if not all felt a deep respect for S'tas.

Jungle Riders:
Feel free to respond to the event thread if your character was one of those that was around the Twins either for all, or partial, of the night. Either that, or you can respond to the rumors running rampant that S'tas never returned in a separate thread.

Characters Who Have Participated

Event Thread

We would like to see Jungle's Response to this event in some form or fashion, though anyone may list their character here and how they may have heard of the rumor and what they think about it.

Otherwise, standard event participation practice applies. If you miss 5 events in a row, your account will be deemed inactive. If you are posting elsewhere but skipping the events, remember : we do not require IC participation. Simply post here under your Player account and let us know what's going on with your character.

Eimerra is in shock. Of all the riders she expected to fall to the Hunters, S'tas was the last. She never really knew him well at all, but feels the loss deeply. She is putting on a brave face for the Weyr, though.

J'hal thinks it ironic that the leader of Jungle Wing has fallen to the creatures they're so confident about fighting.

Shenzani also finds it ironic, but is having a harder time brushing it off. Makes you feel your own mortality, y'know?

Sh'lon doesn't really know what to think. He had a lot of respect for the old grump that was S'tas. His reaction will depend on the general attitude to the loss, though he is curious who will be chosen to replace him. Not the twins, thankfully, since they're so tight on being equals.

Ard'on will be in that thread in a bit but has mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, he respected his Wingleader and such. But he also wouldn't exactly miss him since he thinks he was a bit of an ass.

Vanelwynne is busy with being pregnant and having Oriath be on the clutching sands. So she/Oriath might anyone who causes problems.

Nevyin will be saddened but generally indifferent.

Leaekko won't quite know what to think since he didn't know the man and would more than likely not have been in the jungle wing when the time came.

Evesa definitely finds this ironic, and hopes that it will help pull Jungle Wing's heads out of their asses. Maybe now they'll see that they are not better than the others. But she is not without compassion. Lives were lost. And while she may not have particularly liked S'tas and the other four riders, she will mourn for them and show proper respect for the dead. This has made her slightly more wary of Beach's assignment, though her desire to help has not lessened.

Catari says good riddance. That's one less pain-in-the-balls bronzerider to push the Holders and Crafters around. She knows S'tas and much of Jungle are/were against the Holders and Crafters setting out on their own. Since she believes that he wanted to keep the nonriders as servants, she is quite glad that he and some of his cronies are dead. While deep inside, though she'd never admit it, she feels a stirring of fear.

F'lan is aghast. How could members of the wing that is always fighting Hunters die? What does that mean for him and Rakanth? Will they ever be safe after graduation? He feels terrible for Jungle Wing and the loved ones of the dead. He is also annoyed that his mother is trying to smother him again because of this...

Ishanae's initial reaction will be a kind of smug 'well I guess they weren't as good as they thought' kind of feeling. She'll feel guilty and clamp down on it quickly, since lives were lost and loosing five riders at once is a tragedy no matter who it happened to.

Kayden is horrified at the news. To lose so many when they are finally starting to rebuild? It builds her resolve that they need help on the fighting front now if they are to keep the families safe. She is anxious to Impress and grow and learn so she may finally be of use, though that seems so far off..

Callista is in shock. She has responded to the event thread and has a follow up thread.

Nalata is dismayed at the news. It is never okay to hear when a dragonrider is lost, especially so early in their lives. And to have five perish by those sharding Hunters is unforgivable.

K'mar is also saddened by the loss of another rider. While he didn't agree with many of S'tas' decisions, he respected the man as a fellow rider, especially for giving up his life to try and save four others of his Wing. That goes to show how much he cared for his Wing and really helps to humanize the Jungle Wing a little. He will mourn the loss of all five riders.

S'bok is upset at the loss to the Weyr of a Wingleader and 4 capable riders, but personally glad to be rid of S'tas. He'd not sure what to feel about the man's death in the end, but he's determined to keep the Weyr running and have food coming in despite their loss.

T'nan is shocked by the loss of his Wingleader. He wasn't a personal friend of the man by any means and found the way the man clashed with the Weyr's leaders annoying, but he respected his capabilities and his willingness to help his riders whatever the cost.
