Benden is hit with a heavy heatwave in the last week of Month Six, and first week of Month Seven, which carries through to the end of the month. Their weather will begin to cool in the last week of the month, dropping to the low 30s.

Ista Isle is amused by the weaklings of Benden, but at least their heat is dry. Benden is muggy and riddled with heavy thunderstorms and downpours.

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.

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.

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.

Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 32 to 40 C range, making it a highly desirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the chilly mid-spring weather. 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.

Appearance
Eye Colour:
Hazel/Green
Height:
6'1"
Hair Colour:
Brown, Shoulder Length
Build:
Muscular, Toned
General Description:
For the most part, N'kal is fairly easy on the eyes, though he can occasionally let himself get a bit shaggy, being that he will go without shaving off his facial hair. His skin carries a forever seeming tan to it, as he much prefers being outside rather than inside.

He is broad of shoulder and well-muscled in his arms and legs. He generally has a somber look about his face, though has been known to wear a scowl without realizing it even if he is not in a bad mood. With his height and not always civil facial expression he can have an imposing look about him.
General Dressing Style:
Clothes...he wears them. He doesn't dress to impress unless he has to, so standard tan, brown, and black clothing works best for him. So long as said clothes fit, are comfortable and don't have holes in them, he's good. Boots however he is much pickier about. He prefers a heavier boot with a thick sole, almost always black or dark brown.

Personality
Likes:
Torath, Rain, Harpers
Strengths:
Loyal - If you manage to make a friend out of N'kal, you have a friend for life, unless you severely piss him off...or hurt his dragon..or piss his dragon off...you see where this is going right?
Stubborn - Yes this can be a strength sometimes for the right reason
Can take more physical damage then most men have the right to and get up swinging
Could easily be a leader if he would get his head out of his ass.
Dislikes:
Fish, The South, Large Crowds
Flaws:
Stubborn - for almost every other reason...
Anti-Social - to the point he could easily be a hermit if Torath would allow it
Can't handle his alcohol, two or three drinks tops and his head is swimming
N'kal has a difficult time seeing the good in most people, even when it is right in front of him.
He has deep-rooted abandonment issues, in that he feels everyone he cares about is going to be taken from him.
Habits & Mannerisms:
He has a habit of looking right through people who are talking to him, either because he is bored with the conversation, or doesn't care.
Grunts instead of actually responding when spoken to
General Personality:
N'kal is pretty anti-social for the most part. Not to say he can't or won't talk, he just doesn't like too unless he has to. He is pretty much the definition of the strong and silent man. He isn't the type to walk up to someone and start chatting, nor is he the type to listen to weyr gossip and chatter. He barely talks to the other riders unless they walk up to him to start a conversation. When he does speak it is usually gruff and curt, if not all together rude, unless it is something of severe importance. The exception is with children, he will go out of his way to be nice to children, unless they give him a reason not to. Kids are one of the two things N'kal doesn't really need a reason to smile for, the other of course is Torath.

There is another side to N'kal, he can actually be very friendly and caring, but the events of the plague have left him sour and grumpy. Torath helps him be as social as he is now, but he can't seem to make himself be a happier version of himself. He is content for the time being, being the way he is, and to hell with anyone who doesn't like it. And to hell with the feeling of loneliness he is starting to feel.

Regarding women:
N'kal is very much the gentleman when it comes to women. He is still a bit gruff and rough around the edges, but he is by far much gentler with women then with men, unless they are being a pain in his arse, then he treats them about the same as everyone else.

He doesn't flirt, he doesn't date, and unless Torath is chasing he doesn't bother going after them for sex either. After losing the woman he loved to the plague he has never even thought about trying for love again and closed his heart off to the world. He is lonely but doesn't wish to risk that kind of loss again, for him or Torath, as the poor beast had to suffer through it with him.

In regards to Torath:
N'kal is, even after all the Turns that have gone past, still afraid of the plague that killed so many dragons and riders. He is very funny about who touches Torath and doesn't like for him to be away to long unless he is off hunting.

Important History:
696 AL - Born - After several years of failed attempts, his parents were thrilled to have a strong healthy boy to love. He was a handful the first few years but he was no less loved for it.
700 AL (4yo)- A tragic time in his life occurred that no one expected. Late in turn 699 his mother fell ill and half way through 700 AL he and his father lost the rock of the family. His mother had been the one to keep things going when things got tough. Even at a small age, Nick was so devastated by the loss of his mother that he stopped speaking. He wouldn't even speak to his father. People assured his father it was just a phase, and though it did not seem to be, the two learned to communicate all over again and got along just fine after a while.
702 AL (6yo)- Since his mothers death this was the first time he had been out to a gather. His father ran into an old friend, a Harper, who took an interest in trying to help his father sort out why Nick refused to speak.
704 AL (8yo)- During Nick's standard lessons it was found that he had a gift for knowledge. He could remember almost anything he read or heard and had excellent handwriting for one so young. It was thought that he could take apprenticeship at the Harper Hall, if only he would speak.
708 AL (12yo)- Still not speaking Nik was taken, on invitation by his father and his friend, to view a hatching. Nik was accustomed to dragons coming and going from the few times he had been at the Hold but was extremely excited that he would get to see a hatching. It was the only thing that had brought any honest change to his temperament in years.

Nik was surrounded by the sound of dozens upon dozens of humming dragons, which only added to his excitement. In the seating, which was fairly close to the exit and on the end of the row, they had an excellent view of all the candidates and eggs.

Once the eggs started hatching and the actual impressions got underway he was explained what happens upon impression. There were 20 or so eggs in the clutch do there was plenty of time to explain the goings on. Nik saw, several candidates taken away broken or bloodied from being clawed or bitten and saw that two eggs did not hatch at all, which made him sad. What made him more sad had been the small bronze that was making the worst careening sounds and fumbling around the last of the candidates that had circled him.

Nik, and everyone around seemed to understand that something was wrong. His father told him that the dragon didn't want any of those standing around him, no matter how hard they were trying, and that he would die without a human bond. It broke something inside Nik, a wall around his heart seemed to shatter and he found himself thinking, 'Don't die!' and 'Pick one you silly thing!', and wishing he would hurry up about it, he couldn't have handled seeing him die. He could handle the eggs not hatching, it happened with birds, but the bronze was alive and breathing and.....had been looking dead at him.

The bronze had screamed and started toward him, clawing past a young boy who looked to have been at least two Turns older who was then clutching his bleeding arm. On horribly unstable legs he started trying to run right at him, falling a few times which made him flinch. He didn't know what to do, people around him were shouting and yelling, grabbing and shoving at him and it made him grab for his father. He didn't understand until he looked back at the dragon who was trying to claw past more people to get to him. He looked into one great swirling eye, lost his breath, and allowed himself to be dragged from the crowd. He was given a huge bowl of meat chunks and instructed to feed his dragon.

710 AL(14yo) - Niikolaz had become N'kal, a dragonrider which was far greater an honor then he believed he deserved. He was a no one, a mute child afraid of so many things. Between Torath urging and the coaching of those around him that could stand him, and visa versa, he slowly started speaking again. He also grew some and now towered over his father, whom he visited regularly, even if he wasn't supposed to.

712 AL(16yo) - N'kal meet Palla and her Green Cheaeth. She was 15 even though she had just stood the grounds and bonded with her dragon. She was one of a small group of females to impress and her green was small, even for a green so she caught a lot of grief from other riders. Silent as he was he defended her, getting into several fights when words flew that were to much to ignore.

They were almost always together, Torath defending her Cheaeth from the larger dragons as much as he defended her. She was a strong factor in his actually speaking more, the both of them feeling like outcasts had a bond that ran deep.

715 - 719 AL (19yo- 23yo) - The plague hit hard and dragons were dropping left and right. He and Palla were terrified for their dragons and for each other, so when the call went up to flee south they did not hesitate, leaving messages for their families with friends at the Harper Hall. They took only what they needed, they had each other and their dragons, to save them was all that mattered.

The flight was hard on them all, but harder still on the smaller dragons like Palla's green. They keep dropping to the water to swim when the water allowed so the dragons could rest. It wasn't approved, but they did it anyway and both N'kal and Torath attacked anyone that tried to stop them. He stayed with Palla all the way, and she did her best to keep up. However when they are more then half way there, Cheaeth could no longer keep up, could barely fly, and it was realized then that she was sick too, like so many others. Eventually she crashed into the ocean, Palla nearly drowning as it took a while for Torath to turn Cheaeth over so she could float upright.

He and Palla argued about what to do for a long time before she gave the silent command to go between. Both N'kal and Torath mourned the loss and had it not been for Torath, N'kal would have followed her in death but he could not do that to Torath.

N'kal had lost track of how long it took to finally see land but he knew that even for as strong as Torath was he was fading quickly, he had struggled for so long, refusing to give up and finally crash landed over the beach where he stayed for a full seven day before he was even remotely recovered enough to seek shelter.

Once sheltered N'kal refused to seek out any other dragon or rider for fear they carried whatever plague it was that had killed so many dragons and Torath was of similar mind. They fended for themselves just fine thank you very much.

720 AL(24 yo) - Nirinath's call had woken Torath and with a horrible roar expressing his displeasure at being made to gather around those they had avoided for so long. N'kal didn't like it either but knew better then to disobey, and so they went. When they landed however, N'kal commanded Torath to stay as far away from the others as he could get away with.

721 AL - 725AL(25-29yo) - Upon deciding that those dragons left alive were not infected he and Torath rejoined society, helped to rebuild and did their part in supporting Tsuen's choice to remain hidden from the north which meant fighting with those who caused trouble, and defending the weyr from wildlife. He didn't like it, but he didn't give a damn either the way he say it, her choices were saving the lives of their dragons should the plague still be raging back home.

727 AL(31 yo) Does not agree nor participate in the stealing of candidates. Does not speak against it, but neither does he or Torath include themselves in the activity. He understands why, he just feels it could be better done. Torath doesn't care..dragons need riders and thinks N'kel is being his usual close-minded stubborn self.

728 AL - (32-38 yo] - Fully assimilated with the weyr, Torath has settled into life with the dragons and is very glad to see his brethren increasing in number under the careful planning of the Weyr leaders.Nothing overly eventful happened within these two turns. Though he did manage to be talked into drinking with some of the other riders in late 228, woke up with a random woman in his bed, and Torath laughing in his head.

*730 AL - He had been asked to help in stealing crafters. He did NOT like it, but Torath helped him to understand that it had meant he is trustworthy enough and that it was believed he would come back. Which was true, he had no desire at this point to test the plague, nor did he want to disrupt what was a decent life so far. He still didn't care for it, the ruining of lives, but did as he was told and brought back several crafters.

He was just as shocked as everyone else that a high ranking healer is stolen.

*731 AL - Was quite glad that Torath had not out fly D'ren's Ronarth, as he still wanted nothing to do with leadership.

Both N'kal and Torath had high hopes for the World Above Cluth, and N'kal was more then glad that D'ren suspended the theft of crafters.

Found it amusing that the healer tried to off himself. It wasn't like life at Katila is all that horrible, he still got to practice his craft and he wasn't harshly treated, at least not to N'kal knowledge. Though he did understand that it was wrong and that he probably missed his family, it hadn't been worth killing himself in N'kal's opinion. N'kal would have thought the healer would have been glad to have the opportunity to help the dragons make a come back into the world.

Torath was extremely excited that the new clutch had held a gold egg and that nearly all the eggs had been impressed. N'kal of course had been just as happy as Torath, as more impressions had meant there were a few more dragons in the world, and N'kal would always be glad of that.

Very unhappy that some of the other riders are still unloyal, and found that when S'kef is demoted he was just as glad for it as other had been. He was tired of the loyalty of Dragons and riders being questioned, especially his. No he hadn't liked being kept south, but he still understood the logic behind it.

*732 - N'kal, while having stayed under the radar for the most part, is very concerned about recent events in the Weyr and, though he agreed with riders being punished for their crimes, the public lashing was a bit more then he had expected.

Torath again was happy that the most recent small clutch of eggs had a gold egg, as was everyone else. N'kal was concerned that the clutch had been so small, though the queen who laid it had been young.

Bronze Torath
Adulthood
Torath is a deep amber color, almost an extremely light brown, his dark skin mottled with lighter shades ranging from amber to tan. He is a good and decent size bronze, his hide is smooth as silk thanks to N'kal's constant care. The jagged scar that runs down his chest is mostly faded into the coloration of his hide, though it can be seen as it is several shades lighter then the rest of his hide. His tail spikes are more golden then bronze and each side of his split tail has one small black spike.
Mindvoice
Torath's voice is deep and a little rough, though soothing all the same (Think Jeremy Irons only a bit deeper). He generally is a slow lazy speaker and will rumble sometimes during his speech, similar to when we 'hmmm'.

If he is excited about something, whether it is distressing or just simply playful and excited he will speak a bit faster, but his tone remains the same.

If he is angered is voice will be more of a deeper growl and he will speak sharply and snap his teeth to emphasize his point.
Personality
Torath is fairly quiet and laid back most of the time, so like N'kal he too likes to occasionally be left in peace. Unlike N'kal however he will seek out his fellow dragons and sun bath and play with them while his rider is off doing whatever it is humans do when not in the presence of greatness.

He greatly enjoys playing with human children and is very aware that he could easily hurt or kill one so he plays as gentle as he can. He finds it amusing that dragons amuse them so much. He also doesn't like to hear the little squishy ones cry, he isn't quite sure why it bothers him, but he will seek out the noise maker and watch it curiously or try and make it stop.

Over all Torath is a very friendly and occasionally playful dragon. He wants his space like N'kal but unlike his rider he is far more inclined to be curled up with another dragon or running around playing with or chasing blues and greens. Where some other bronze or brown seem to not like the smaller more active dragons, Torath finds them quite fun and entertaining to be around.
Quirks
Likes:
N'kal - Even when he is being a jerk....
Rain - It's very calming and cleans the dust off too!!
Sleeping in the sun - Oh please don't make me get up!
Eating - Well hello! I Am a dragon you know...
Human Children - They are cute and squishy and fun to play with! A pity N'kal won't let me have one for a pet....
Music - He likes the livelier songs especially. Music makes N'kal happy, and that in turn makes Torath happy. He has a tendency to swing or thump his tail to the music and bob his head (usually offbeat), he occasionally has to be reminded not to.
Sand - Sand is an excellent way for me to scratch my back and it is almost always warm!
Fire Lizards - They are cute little versions of me and so fun to chase through the air! Pity there aren't more of them...N'kal needs to get one...or three...

Dislikes:
Anyone who makes N'kal mad
Those who insist on being cruel to other dragons regarding their worth or intelligence - even if it is occasionally true...>.>
Being itchy - This is a lot of body to scratch! Make with the oil please!
Being used as a taxi service - unless it's kids and old people...He doesn't mind humans, he just doesn't like them expecting him to let anyone ride him.
Watch Whers - beastly little things that are barely even related to dragons in his opinion. Does NOT approve of humans using them in place of dragons in the north and is more likely to watch one go up in flame rather then go near it.

Habits/Mannerisms:
Will stick his tongue out and blow the dragon equivalent of 'raspberries' like a human will. A trick that N'kal sometimes regrets teaching him as it usually ends up with N'kal needing new clothes and or a bath.

Will stand outside N'kal's door beating his wings to blow air through his house until he comes out when he is being a hermit.

Will walk around with a smug look on his face and strutting when he gets his way from N'kal even after N'kal blatantly says no a hundred and fifty thousand times.

Likes to stir up the blues and greens then hide and let the humans deal with the playful aftermath. Crazy dragon can be evil sometimes. N'kal does not like this..at all.

Strengths:
+Has a stronger memory then some of his fellow dragons and depending on the import of something, can remember something up to a week..if he keeps reminding himself of it.
+Can drag N'kal out of any sour or somber mood and make him be social, by physical force if the situation calls for it.
+Has excellent agility and stamina for his size
Weaknesses:
+Gets frustrated easily when he doesn't understand something
+Quick to anger when something or someone upsets N'kal
+Has a bad habit of 'bite first, ask questions later' when angered
