North: Late Spring | South: Late Autumn
9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C

Ista is heating up swiftly, and preparing for a rough summer - hopefully nothing like the one from a couple turns before with the wildfires! The rest of Northern Pern is warming upsomewhat slower, but with no less gusto as summer begins to creep into the sky, keeping the sun awake longer, warming the ledges of the weyrs. Rainstorms are sporadic, but keep the world well watered, despite the heat of the days.

The Red Star can be seen by those who choose to see it, causing no shortage of whispers that Thread will return - and just as much dismissal from those who do not believe. After all, it's been so long, surely it is no longer a threat! Weyrleaders are, regardless, beginning to put together wings in their Weyrs, if only to keep troublesome and bored riders busy.

Month 12, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Winter -3 - 2 C | 26 - 35 F
Fort is already home to snowfalls, though early in the month they fade away when the sun rises. As the month progresses, more snow stays on the ground, ending up with several feet of snow before the month is over. The areas around homes and populations has the snow shoveled away or trodden down. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove some danger and are routinely removed.

Ista Boundaries:
Winter, 9 - 21 C | 48 - 69 F
Generally warm enough to go about without a jacket on, Ista has low humidity but high chance of rain, generally in the form of vicious afternoon thunderstorms. The storms wash away any bite of heat the day had, and leave it feeling fresh for the night. The days are short, but grow bright quickly and the afternoons seem to be particularly short when heavy thunderstorms roll in and cover the sky.

Telgar Boundaries:
Winter, -5 - 0 C | 23 - 32 F
Bitterly cold, with icy winds constantly flowing down from the mountains. Freezing rain is almost constant; the sky always a murky grey and the ground slippery with slushy refrozen ice. The days are extremely short, with the nights dropping a good number below the daily average. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove a major danger, and are checked upon every day, with anything bigger than a fist being removed.


Month 07, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Summer 27 - 38 C | 80 - 100 F
Light breezes down from the mountains tot he North keep the temperature comfortable, even when the sun can bake an egg on the edge of a weyr. Sunburn is common.

Ista Boundaries:
Summer, 34 - 43 C | 93 - 110 F
A very dry, dusty heat. Little to no rain, causing more than some to worry about the drought not breaking and the rest of the Isle being at risk of fires. Many seek the depths of weyr, hold or hall during the midday and early afternoon heat.

Telgar Boundaries:
Summer, 26 - 35 C | 79 - 95 F
Muggy, sticky and generally just plain humid. Thunder storms are regular occurances, often happening in the early afternoon or evening, with heavy rainfall before drying off sometime in the night. Mornings are usually crisp, but warm up swiftly.


Month 06, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Ista Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Telgar Boundaries: Season, Low to High

Month 04, 740 AL
North: Early Spring | South: Early Autumn
−1.9 C to 4.7 C | 20.0 C to 29.0


Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself naturally warmer, (~10C / 50) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

-3.1 to 2.1 C | 20.4 C to 29.4 C


Winter has come slowly to the Northern lands of Pern, with more rain and cold winds than snow. As the month progresses, more and more snow will fall, with frequent blizzard-like storms towards the very end of the month. Telgar and Fort will in particular become burried under mountains of snow, while Ista is sunjected to frequent icy rainstorms, and heavy winds coming in from across the ocean.

Following the disastrous fires (sometime in around the 28th of Month 08), Ista Isle has found itself suddenly in the midst of constant rain; not enough to flood, but a steady, dreary downfall that seems to only take a time out for a couple of hours here and there, before coming back again. Its cast the entire sooty Isle into a sombre and depressed mood. Alongside the rain, the weather is muggy and while not hot, is not particularly cool, either.

The rest of Northern Pern is getting their usual weather, though they, too, have been called to action following the wildfires that savaged Ista. Many individuals who called Ista Island home have been relocated not just to Ista Weyr, Ista Hold or Sea Cliff Hold, but also to other areas of Pern, whether with family or friends.

North: Late Summer | South: Late Winter
17.4 to 25.5 C | 10.8 C to 23.2 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm - 37 to 45 C - has resulted in an incredibly dry summer, with little to no rain. This was climaxed by a dry thunderstorm, the results of which caused three fires to start across the Island on the 24.07.739 in the early morning hours. While the results of this are yet to be played out, the events will no doubt leave more than just the scarring of the land.

Month 07, 739 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter
18.0 to 26.6 C | 10.2 C to 21.9 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 37 to 45 C range, making it now a more than slightly undesirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the more enjoyable early summer weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind. Ista's limited farmlands and fields are dry and dusty, with golden straw instead of grass where there is any growth at all.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are still getting a lot of evening rain and the occasional thunderstorms, which cools down the populus and allows them to sleep easily without sweating their brains out like the Istans.

There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are getting a lot of rain, thunderstorms, and cloudy days. Grass is growing, flowers flowering, and baby animals popping up all over the place! Yay spring!

Month 11, 738 AL
North: Late Autumn | South: Late Spring


Autumn is coming to an end, with the days slowly becoming shorter still, with early nights and late mornings. The temperature is getting very cool, with jackets being more required, but it has yet to actually snow. Despite this, it is often raining and miserable.

The Southern contient is in full bloom, with flowers coming to life in the grasses and on the trees. The skies are bright blue with fluffy clouds, and occassional sunshowers bringing a dampness to the day. The nights are still crisp, but not cold. The ground is starting to dry up as water is absorbed by the blooming flora.

Month 10, 738 AL
North: Mid Autumn | South: Mid Spring


Autumn is in full tilt, with the leaves a shocking array of orange and red, and more of them on the ground than on the trees. The skies are often a clear and crisp blue, with a cool breeze flowing, shifting the leaves and sending them scattering. Rain is not common, but when it does roll in the skies are dark like night come early, and thunderstorms are not uncommon, though they don't last for long and the amount of rain that falls isn't too heavy.

Month 09, 738 AL
North: Start Autumn | South: Start Spring


Nothern regions are entering into Autumn, with the trees beginning to change to their reds and oranges, while the air is beginning to feel more crips. There are still more warm days than cool, and the nights are mostly warm enough for light bedding still. Rain has faded away and most days are clear and bright.

The Southern contient finds itself heading into spring, with rain and flowers vying for attention. The ground is often muddy and squishy, while the skies are either bright and blue, or overcast wtih fluffy clouds.

Month 08, 738 AL
North: End Summer | South: End Winter


Summer is winding to an end in the Northern hemisphere, with the weather slowly cooling and the trees beginning to turn their leaves. The days are still long and bright, but the sun is beginning to lose some of its strength.

The coastal Weyrs are falling victim to coastal storms, strong winds and heavy rains with thunder and lightening.

The more inbound Weyrs and Holds find themselves drier, not getting nearly as much rain or storms, they find themselves on the end of a long drought.

Month 07, 738 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter


Summer is in full spring in the Nothern hemisphere, with the bulk of each day being unbearbly hot, followed by vicious thunderstorms and heavy humidity in the evenings and at night.

The coastal areas are experiencing monsoon like weather, and spend a lot of their time locked away in Hold, Hall or Weyr.

The more inner locations find themselves faced with more dry heat during the day, and horrible humidity in the evening and at night while the thunderstorms rage.

27.08.716

Player:
Appearance
Eye Colour:
Light blue
Height:
5'4"
Hair Colour:
Tala has wavy light brown hair that she keeps cut above the shoulder. It lightens significantly in the summer and sun. It curls more strongly in the humidity.
Build:
General Description:
Tala has a soft, oval shaped face with a small cleft in her chin. Her skin is middling fair with no freckles to speak of. She's picked up a good number of small marks and scars over the years, but few serious or particularly noticeable ones. A large percentage of the scars are small, circular ones leftover from insect bites she couldn't leave alone. She also has stretch marks from her pregnancy. Her mouth is wide with pouty lips.

Her lifestyle has led her to be reasonably fit, but not overly muscular and she retains a fair amount of softness to her body. Tala's hands have managed to stay fairly smooth due to helping her aunt oil her dragon nearly her whole life, though basic work has kept them from being the hands of a noble. She keeps her nails short, as she tends to break them a lot and eventually decided to just keep them short all the time.
General Dressing Style:
Practicality is the main role for clothing in Tala's view. It doesn't have to be pretty or well done if it works. She generally wears pants for this reason. Most of her clothes are fairly loose fitting. Tala adores soft fabrics, but they aren't 'necessary' so she often forgoes them.

Since she started seeing Helyna, Tala has added a lot more lace to her wardrobe.
Bruna Linzmeyer
Personality
Likes:
Being Outside: Tala spent much of her younger life outside, and she still loves it. As nice as civilization is, there's something special about being in nature.
Ryvala: Coming from a family that, due to having few living members, was very, very close, it's unsurprising that Tala loves her daughter fiercely.
Dragons: As a weyrbrat (sort of), dragons have always been a part of Tala's life. She loves the great beasts, and aspires to Impress one herself.
Strengths:
Bold: Tala is always ready to try new things and speak her mind.
Imaginative: She grew up in the wilds of the Southern Continent and Katila, which were not known for fancy children's toys. Tala was always excellent at making do, not just for fun as a child but also with practical things, like finding creative uses for old objects.
Positive: Nothing keeps Tala down for long, and she always thinks there is a chance to make things better.
Dislikes:
Being Lonely: As a cheerful and friendly person, not being around others is not something Tala enjoys.
Deep Water: Tala is nervous around any water deeper than her waist after almost drowning at 13. Swimming is off the table, though baths are fine, and she will wade into water a little bit.
Being Useless: She has lived through lots of disasters she could do nothing about, such as firehead outbreaks, storms, and the Landslide, and she really dislikes not being able to act. It's part of the reason she always throws herself into helping however she can after disasters.
Flaws:
Stubborn: While fairly easygoing, Tala has a stubborn streak that crops up when it involves things she really cares about.
Reckless: Tala doesn't always think things through completely, and will act on impulse more often than not. Consequences don't usually occur to her, which can be seen in her accidental pregnancy.
Easily Distracted: Interruptions cause no end of problems for Tala. If she's interrupted during a task, she either takes the new task and forgets all about the first one, or continues the first forgetting all about the second.

Habits & Mannerisms:
Tala constantly plays with her hair. Twirling it around her finger, running her fingers through it, brushing it out of her face, you name it. She doesn't consciously play with her hair, but she can be seen doing it pretty much anytime her hands are unoccupied.
General Personality:
There's little that gets Tala down. She is unerringly cheerful and determined to make the best of whatever life throws at her. Tala hates being unable to act, and will always doggedly find a new way to pursue her goals. She makes friends easily, and is happy to introduce herself to new people and do her best to make them comfortable with her.

Family means everything to Tala. She had only her aunt for some time, and R'mar clung desperately to her niece in the wake of the Plague and her sister's death. Thus, Tala was taught at a young age that family is important. This idea was only compounded by the fact she has no idea who her father was and her desire to have known her mother. She doesn't see fathers as necessary to raising a child, but it would be nice to know who he was - especially in a place like the Weyrs where she could easily sleep with a relative without knowing.

Important History:
716 AL & Birth: Talara, who is pregnant, goes South to escape the Plague with her greenriding sister, R'mar (who had not been informed that her sister was pregnant, as Talara was worried R'mar would refuse to bring her South if she'd known). After 7 months on the Southern Continent, Talara gives birth to her first child. There are complications, and due to there being no trained healer and only her sister there, Talara dies within hours of her daughter's birth. R'mar names the child Tala, after her mother, and because she does not know the father's identity (Talara wasn't sure which man she had slept with had gotten her pregnant, and she wasn't alive to identify possible physical traits inherited from the father).
717 AL & 1 Turn: Despite have minimal child rearing experience and being alone in the wild, R'mar somehow manages to keep baby Tala alive, thought it is a near thing. It is mostly due to sheer determination and the assistance of green Delorianth that Tala survives her first year of life. R'mar managed to contact another group of Weyr refugees, a young brownrider, his mother, and younger sister. The rider's mother gives some assistance to R'mar in caring for Tala, though the riders are careful their dragons never get anywhere near each other.
718 AL & 2 Turns: Tala is a thankfully quiet baby, and is perfectly content to stay where she is placed and watch the world around her. She is easily entertained, and R'mar can simply give her something to play with and know she'll be occupied for a good long time. R'mar picks up parenting skills and survival skills like a boss.
719 AL & 3 Turns: R'mar looses contact with the other group. She never learns what happened to them. However, the brownrider's mother got her through Tala's first few years and taught her enough to keep raising Tala alone.
720 AL & 4 Turns: Nirinath's Call goes out, and R'mar immediately joins the other riders. She is ecstatic at the idea of help raising Tala, as well as more interaction in general. Tala, for her part, is excited by all the action and has playmates for the first time in her short life. She quickly makes friends, as Tala has no fear of introducing herself to new people and declaring them friends.
721 AL & 5 Turns: Tala and R'mar avoid falling ill during the firehead outbreak, with R'mar being overly protective of her only remaining family and connection to her sister.
722 - 724 AL & 6-8 Turns: The discontent and desire to return North does not touch Tala, as she has no idea what North is like at all and R'mar feels no need to return; there's nothing for the greenrider there but memories. The young girl continues to play and make friends in the creche.
725 AL & 9 Turns: The storm destroys the house R'mar and Tala shared with another greenrider, and they spend the next few months helping rebuild.
727 AL & 11 Turns: Nirinath Rises, and Tala is extremely excited at the idea of baby dragons. This is when her desire to have a dragon of her own truly develops.
729 AL & 13 Turns: Tala almost drowns while swimming, causing a great deal of distress for her aunt and friends who were swimming with her and creating her fear of deep water.
731 AL & 15 Turns: D'ren's new rule about women who wish to Stand for fighting dragons need to have at least one child is established. Tala is somewhat concerned about this, as at 15 the idea of having a child doesn't particularly appeal to her.
733 AL & 17 Turns: Women's honorifics are revoked. R'mar is livid, and pronounces that she'll only go back to Aramara if or when Delorianth is gone. Tala has no desire to anger her aunt, and continues to use her honorific name in private. In public, she tends to use 'Ramara' which sounds a bit like a nickname.
734 AL & 18 Turns: The Landslide happens. Delorianth is gravely injured protecting R'mar/Aramara and Tala in their hut. She survives, but her left hind leg is mangled and while she keeps the leg it is nearly useless. Tala spends the time after the Landslide helping Aramara/R'mar care for Delorianth as she recovers, as well as volunteering her time with others who were injured.
735 AL & 19 Turns: The move North begins. R'mar/Aramara, due to Delorianth's now permanently crippled leg, decides to remain in Katila and officially 'retire' as an active dragonrider. Tala chooses to go North with the others. Though she misses R'mar/Aramara horribly, Tala has no desire to miss out on the adventure of moving North or the chance to Impress a dragon of her own.
736 AL & 20 Turns: Ista and Fort Weyrs are reopened, and Tala moves to Ista, the warmest of the Weyrs, as she misses the warmth of the Southern Continent.
737 AL & 21 Turns Tala starts 'experimenting' with sex once life started settling into more regular patterns after all the moving about and opening new Weyrs. She has good fun for a few months, before realizing she's pregnant. This leads to a bit of a panic for Tala, as she has to step down from being a Candidate for a while, but she ultimately keeps the pregnancy.
738 AL & 22 Turns: Early in the Turn her child, a girl she names Ryvala following the usual Pernese tradition of combining the parents' names. She feels compelled to do so, as she still has no idea who her father is and likely never will, and she wants her daughter to know who her family is. By the end of the Turn, Ryvala is considered old enough for Tala to resume Standing.
739 AL & 23 Turns:
Month 10 - Impresses to green Niath, one of three girls to Impress green at the Hatching.
Month 12 - Has Ryvala brought to Telgar from Ista once Niath is old enough to understand about Tala having a human child.

Education
Details:
Basic weyrbrat education. Tala has a great memory for random facts, so learning was easy for her. She spent a lot of time reading whatever she could get her hands on, which honestly wasn't much in Katila.

Weyrlinghood
Niath is remarkably unremarkable compared to most of her siblings. Her hide is a solid, uniform olive green, broken only by the colour of her back ridges - a dark forest green - and a splatter around her right eye.

In build, Niath is again unremarkable; she is neither a perfect representation of a green, nor is she so out of proportion that it is worth noting. She is not particularly bulky, but nor is she a thin waif of a green, either. She grows well, maintaining her proportion while other dragons might go through more awkward ups and downs. Niath maintains her weight well; she never really gets pudgy but nor is she ever particularly slim.
Niath
Adulthood
Remember that remarkably unremarkable Hatchling? Yeah, well one day you’re going to wake up and not only is Niath fully grown, but she’s somehow magically turned into a fucking tank. There is no denying this medium sized green is a green - but her width and sheer presence puts her on par with more than a couple of brown dragons.

Niath is wide, with a hulking, muscular build. There is nothing dainty about this green, and while her masked face is sweet, she doesn’t reek of femininity either. Both of her eyes have dark slashes of near-black across them, while her entire body is painted a whitish green, with darker splotches scattered over it. She looks like the Weyrbrats threw buckets of paint at her, and then flash-dried her in the sunshine.
Mindvoice
Niath has a saucy, teasing voice that clearly indicates her fun loving nature and generally good disposition. When she is upset, or tired, she tends to take on a pouty and sulky tone of voice. When she is angry, her tone gets more akin to deep and rumbly, as if it is resonating through her chest.
Personality
Bold, and completely unashamed of her opinions or choices (especially that of her Lifemate), Niath has a habit of boldly speaking up when others are more inclined to keep their opinions to themselves. Completely shameless, Niath does what she does and is who she is with absolutely no care at all about what others think of her. So long as she doesn’t make Tala feel ashamed of her or something she does, Niath feels she has every right to march on just like she is, has, and always will.

More than a little sassy, Niath has a great sense of humour to accompany her desire for all things in the world to see justice. No one shall ever be bullied before Niath, and the green not take a stand against it. She abhors mistreatment and bullying, feeling it is those who are stronger - mentally, emotionally, or physically - that should be standing up for those who are not, not making their lives miserable or tearing down whatever shred of confidence they have left to make themselves feel bigger and better than they are.

Despite her attitude, Niath isn’t one to pick or provoke fights; she’ll partake in them if someone just won’t stop, but she’d rather see a peaceful conclusion than get in a tussle of wits. Verbal attacks against her slide right off her like water off a well oiled hide, as Naith considers herself well above such pettiness. However, as stated, as soon as those attacks are launched at someone who isn’t able to defend themselves, or won’t, Niath will step in and defend them.
Quirks
Niath has a watchful gaze, and a quiet air of protection, especially when she is with her friends that she deems as needing to be looked out for. Some individuals just need a shield, and Niath will fill that void for them.

(Before graduation, Indivara will approach Tala and Niath about continuing their education to be, if not future Weyrlingmasters, available as Assistants. How they choose to respond will of course remain to be seen.) They agreed!

Apples: Yeah. Figure that one out. Picking up the habit as a Weyrling, Niath will forever have a soft spot for apples. Of course, as a Weyrling, she’s small enough that a couple of apples actually get chewed, tasted, and enjoyed. She pouts a lot when she considers how big she is, compared to her delicious apples.
Making Friends: Niath is friendly, cheerful, easy going and fun to be around. She loves making new friends and catching up with old ones. She enjoys socialising and playing, things she’ll never really grow out of even when she’s an adult sized dragon. She likes sunning, but she also likes flying, swimming, and running around with that awkward arse dragon gait.

Dislikes:
Bullies: As if this fact hasn’t been covered a dozen times over already, Niath really dislikes bullies. In her opinion, there is no good reason to pick on someone else, and those who bully are pathetic, disgusting losers. And she will tell them as much. To their face. With attitude.
Flights: Niath is a bit of a feminist, in that she doesn’t like the way being randy turns her into a beacon of bait for male dragons. She doesn’t like the way they oggle her and fight for her attention and batter each other as if being brutes will make her like them or want them to catch her. As a result, after her Maiden flight - which will honestly freak her out - Niath simply won’t Fly until she’s mated - if she mates.

Strengths:
Protecting the weak: Niath often forgets she’s ‘just a green’ when it comes for standing up for and defending those who are less confident, less strong, than herself. She takes pride in her ability to protect others from bullies, and her quick wit and easy nature both put bullies in their place, and calm and reassure whomever she has stepped forward to defend.
Chunky Monkey: Growing up as a middle of the pack green, Niath really appreciates her size and strength as an adult dragon. She doesn’t really remember being an unimpressive baby dragon, but she does know people stop and stare at her now when she steps in to be a Guardian Green and she likes that. She likes that she’s big, and impressive and people take note of her.

Flaws:
Insubordinate: Niath has no time for your bullshit subordination, especially if you are being a Bully. She won’t willfully step out of line just because, but has no hesitation to being a mouthy sass if she needs to protect someone from being picked on. She will tell it like it is, how it is, when it is, and fuck you.
