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.

Month 12, 739 AL
North: Early Winter| South: Early Summer
-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.

13.4 to 21.0 C | 13.8 C to 25.6 C


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.

Month 08, 739 AL
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.

9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C


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!

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 uncommonly warm (~12C / 53.6) 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.

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.

ITS AN UPDATE! HOORAH!

I'm not dead, my loves! This month's Event is 'Close Call!' - have fun! Stamps will be uploaded and on display in our Discord chatroom.

There is a topic here for discussion about Pernese religions and belief systems, including in and out of Weyr opinions (variably and as a whole) in regards to delicate matters, such as birth, death, and the afterlife. Also, ghosts anyone? Now I'm imagining a giant arse dragon ghost....

Healer Hall is accepting Gold Candidates (just from Fort, for now) and R'nya will soon be discussing with his Weyrwoman Rhaedalyn the merits of bringing in additional female candidates.... on the condition they are approved for Healer Apprenticeship...

Thallyath, Casa's little gold dragon, will be taking to the skies for her maiden flight in the first week of April (IC date will be 740-04-01) and while a mate is already decided, this clutch will be PC and more candidates are ALWAYS welcome, whether you want them to Impress this round --- or not!

September 2018

Spring is here! ... In Australia, anyway!

This month’s riveting event is ‘Seas of Fun’, in honour of International Pirate’s Day! After all the drama with the fires, we expect that taking to the sea (or lake, river, pond, etc) would be a very relaxing way to spend some downtime for many dragonriders and Holderfolk alike!

In preparation for October, the even is “Memories of the Past”, which we hope will be a fun way to explore your character’s past, either in solo posts or threads, as inner monolog or as back posting! How you choose to partake is entirely up to you!

October will also see our next PC HATCHING! In order to have your Candidate qualify for Impression, they must have no less than 20 posts! There are lots of characters floating around who would be more than happy to help your Candidate breech that count! Don’t forget to also UPDATE YOUR APPLICATIONS where applicable, or make sure it is submitted at all! We can’t Impress your character if we don’t know what they should be getting!

As always, be sure to submit your threads to the IC RP Timeline submission thread, so they can be added to the list! While you’re at it, remember to submit your favourite quotes – from your character’s or others! – to the Quote Submission Thread! We want to see some recent quotes thrown in with our old ones!

If you haven't already, please drop by the Dragonrider Weyr Allocations thread, and let us know where your dragonriders call home. We are hoping to set up Wings across the three PC Weyrs over the next month or so, and your assistance is much appreciated! As a result, we will be looking for Wingleaders, Wingseconds, and of course Candidates for the clutches we have scheduled for this year!

August 2018

ITS AUGUST! Do you know what that means? It means its less than 4 months until Christmas! OMG.

Okay. So moving on! This month sees us (hopefully) wrapping up the Camp Kink event! Who doesn’t love an abundance of young adults exploring their sexuality without restraint? Its been a hell of a fun ride (haha get it?) so far! Can’t wait to see what the grapevine makes of it when words gets out … haha!

On a more serious note, this month will see us engaging in the Istan Wildfires! This event is a free for all! Feel free to have your characters interact with the event in any way you feel is suitable! There is a lot of room here for personal dramas, trouble making, hero worshiping, etcetera! We really want to see how characters interact with, and dictate, the outcome of the event!

Those of you who are intersted, please take part in a discussion about the Plot for opening up the Healer Hall! You can find it [here].

June 2018

Welcome to the new month! Like always, I'm slack in getting the update up and running, but here it is! This month we have the event 'Summer Fling' - [Link] - which is turning out to be all kinds of entertaining already! Remember, it doesn't have to include smut! It could be an innocent date with some - *gasp* - hand holding!

This month also saw Gold Bedith of Mulrissa take to the skies! She was won by young Syrendryth of T'ryn! Congrats, and may your Hatching be less dramatic than the last one! The Hatching will take place in October so you have a lot of time to get Candidates created, approved, and posting up a storm!

In the meantime, gold Okalinath of Kahleena has taken to the skies! You can find her Flight thread taking place on the 4th, here Currently, there is no planned winner, so be sure to throw your bronzes and browns her way! They do not need to be natives to Telgar Weyr to participate!

And so it is December! Can’t believe how fast this year is flying by! At any rate, we have LOTS of fun for you this month! For starters, why don’t you sign up for our Secret Santa Event! Pairs will be assigned on the 14th! You can sign your character(s) up as a Giver, a Receiver or Both! We also hope that you enjoy our Christmas layout, which will be available for use for the entire month of December! After that, it will go into hiding until next Christmas!

We will also be awarding the HORRIFYING MOMENTS stamps to those who qualified for them, as well as the WORDS OF THE MONTH for November. We hope you enjoyed these Events, and you can expect more of them in the upcoming year!

This month we will also be focusing on the RP Records, and request you submit all your threads here so we can update the Timeline! As it says in the thread, the Timeline will be updated every month, in the first week. To help us maintain, be sure to submit your threads as soon as you open them!

November 2017

Welcome to November! We'd love it if you would take the time to Vote in our Horrifying Moments threads! We will also be awarding Stamps for people who vote, not just those who took part! We hope you enjoyed this event as much as we did! You can see the Stamps that will be awarded in the Horrifying Moment's thread.

This month we are doing a 'Words of the Month' event! You can choose your word/s as indicated in the thread, and may particpate with as many characters as you desire! This contest has no voting to earn stamps; you get a stamp just for participating! Enjoy!

October 2017

Welcome to October! As part of our Halloween celebrations, the Horrifying Moments event is now open! You may START a thread at any point during the month of October to qualify it for the event! We hope you have a lot of fun with this event, and we look forward to reading your threads! Don't forget to "Like" the threads you enjoy most, so we can award someone the MOST HORRIFYING stamp! Stamps will be revealed later in the month!

September 2017

Welcome to September! This month, we're working on our Awards for the site! We are also advertising avidly! Please welcome any guests or new members with all that warm charm we know you all posess! That said, we are still seeking Affiliates, so if you're here to drop an ad, please consider us!

Our next PC Clutch will be in the new year, so now is the pefect time to join with old candidates (how many clutches have they stood for now?!) and candidate hopefuls! Get those eager young men and women out there and grow them so we can match them with their perfect lifemate when the new year rolls around and one of our lovely golds throws a clutch on the Sands -- At this point in time, the Weyrs are sharing Candidates, so your Candidate can be Searched by any Weyr, and transfer to the one holding the PC clutch!

August 2017

We are officially open for our relaunch, and are excited to meet and greet new RPers! We're currently looking for all types of characters, including Weyrleaders and goldriders! But we also have lots of room for green and blueriders, weyrfolk, candidates, and all types of Hall folk, such as Masters, Journeymen and Apprentices. If you have any questions, feel free to hit us up in the Cbox or Discord chats, which can be found on the lower part of the screen.

July 2017

We are currently having an event to Create Adoptables! And encourage everyone to take part!

History is almost complete, and the profile has been re-coded. All new characters will need to go onto the new profile, but all old can keep their current! We'll begin advertising properly over the next couple of weeks, once the history has been completed, and probably after the weekend of the 8th and 9th, because that is when ThistleProse is having her birthday.

June 2017

We are on the brink of relaunching! Our history is being rewritten and cleaned up! We are accepting new members, and old! Our advertisment has been re-written, and will be put out there soon. We are also accepting affiliates of all descriptions, genres and themes! If you would like to affiliate with us, please go here
We officially have two layouts! You can post here with any issues you find, or request any changes!

May 2017

Progress has slowed down a little, due to RL events (yay promotions! Boo no internet!) but we're getting back on track! Documents are still being written and we've put together a FAQs page, though its likely to recieve a lot of adjustments as we come across things. The current goal is to have everything set up and ready by July, but we'll see how well we go at that. And by we, I mean ThistleProse. lol.

April 2017

The layout is almost complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done; documents are being written up and can be found in the Site Map menu opion. Players can begin to move their characters' information to their Account Profiles, but be aware some changes may still be made and/or added.
If you find any bugs or issues, plese repot them here, and we will do our best to fix them in a timely manner.


FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL QUESTIONS

 

Why only 18+?

Pern started as a dark game, with kidnapping and abuse that we felt was only suitable for those individuals over the age of eighteen. We also allow the posting of sexual situations, swearing, drug usage and abuse, and other situations that really aren’t suitable for minors. While the site has mellowed out over the years, the community feels more comfortable maintaining the 18+ restriction. It should be noted that while we cannot stop individuals from lying about their age when they join the site, anyone found to be under 18 at the time of joining will receive an instant ban, because not only are they putting the site at risk, but they are also putting their RP partners at risk if any mature content was RPed.

 

Account-Per-Player or Account-Per-Character?

We are an Account-per-Character site, and implement the use of a Sub-Account system, so you never have to log in or out to change accounts. You can find a step-by-step guide on how to link up your Sub-Accounts to your Player account here.

 

How welcoming is Pern to marginalized players and/or characters?

In the real world, we are committed to giving people of all races, sexes, sexual orientations, and gender identities a safe and comfortable place to role play. However, we also remind players that Pern is not our modern world. Pern is a conservative and regressive society, where many of our modern sensibilities are not yet developed.

In-character, expect to find a world that struggles with sexism, homophobia, and other difficult topics. Pern is a patriarchal and anti-LGBT world, and if you decide to play a character from a marginalized group, that character can expect to encounter prejudices. At World of Pern, we consider this a part of our in-character world building, and an excellent source of conflict for characters from these groups.

Female characters can expect to face discrimination when seeking most ranking positions and the Impression of fighting dragons. Female Impressions of fighting dragons are allowed, but players are reminded that female dragonriders are rare in-character, and your character will be among the exceptions.

Gay, lesbian, and bisexual characters face heavy discrimination in holds and halls, but enjoy some measure of sanctuary in weyrs. Homosexuality is accepted in weyrs as an inevitable side-effect of dragon mating behavior, but that doesn’t mean everyone is comfortable with it. World of Pern’s impressions are not based on sexual orientation, but the in-character myth that sexual orientation affects impression is still alive and well.

Finally, on Pern, there is no concept of transgenderism. Non-cis characters are absolutely allowed, but players should remember that the Pernese do not understand transgenderism or gender dysphoria. A Pernese person cannot identify as transgender or seek transition because these are concepts that simply do not exist in their world. These characters may still struggle with their dysphoria and/or go through other struggles related to it, but this world lacks the ideas, terminology,and support systems we associate with transgender issues today.

If you want to play a female or LGBT character but are concerned about our policies, feel free to reach out to us. We’d love to talk to you and help find a solution that makes you comfortable without compromising our setting.

 

What about Flightlust?

Flightlust is a very real occurrence at Pern; there are no Stand-Ins (an event considered incredibly dangerous for all involved) and locking doors is considered reckless endangerment to both riders and dragons. It should be noted that all characters are taught about Flightlust in their Candidacy, and any who feel they would be unable to handle it are weeded out of Candidacy; it is taken very seriously In Character by all dragonriders.

 

Flight mothing, the term used for the men and women who take part is sexual activities with the losers of a Flight, is a common result of those who did not win, though it is not impossible for a loser to suppress the urge and/or take care of himself after the flight is won by someone else.

 

The dragonriders of Pern strongly believe in the quote ‘Dragon decides, rider complies’ – during Flightlust, the dragon and the human are one. They both want to get laid, and they both do their best to reach a happy ending.

 

At the end of the day, a dragon will never fly or give chase if their rider isn’t ready for the event; if a rider is young, for example, the dragon will never put their rider at risk of being hurt by putting them through a sexual experience they aren’t ready for – physically or emotionally – it would be detrimental to the bond and the relationship between dragon and rider.

 

 

PASSAGE OF TIME

 

Our Calendar

World of Pern follows a 1:1 passage of time, running in real time. On the first day of each Real Life month, the In Character month changes. Our Pernese use a 12 month calendar of 30 days each, divided into the four classic seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn. A current calendar can be found in the header bar, including previous months weather for the purpsoe of back dated threads.

Please be aware that we do not allow future-posting - you may not start a thead dated after the current real life date. Eg, if today is the 21st of October, you cannot create a thread for the 25th of month 10, of the current Turn.

Back dating threads is both allowed and encouraged.

 

 

CHARACTER CREATION

 

Do you impose character slots?

No, we don’t have character slots. You are welcome to make as many characters as you feel you can reasonably handle. We do request that new players limit themselves to three characters while they establish themselves and get comfortable, but it isn’t a hard set requirement.

 

What are your activity requirements?

Short answer: We don’t have any;

 

There are exceptions, however. Generally speaking, if you play a character who holds rank or responsibilities, you are expected to RP with anyone that wants to thread with that character. You are agreeing to that character being available for RPing when you take on the rank; if you don’t want any posting requirements than we advise you to avoid ranking and responsibility positions.

 

Can I purchase genetic traits? (eg, blonde hair)

There is no need to purchase traits such as hair, eye or skin colour; so long as it is realistically possible in the real world, then we are happy to accept your character. However, it should be noted that we reserve the right to put a temporary or permanent hold on traits that are generally rare if too many people are making characters with them.

 

Is there a pet limit? What can I start with?

Not really. We would prefer that a Character not have more than three or so Firelizards at any given time, simply because it becomes difficult to play out multiples and keep them active and interacting with the general roleplay.

 

Gold firelizards need to be purchased from the site Store, where they are available irregularly, and can be assigned to a character and Impressed in game as fitting individual plot needs. Occasionally, a clutch may be played out in game, but this is likely to be rare, as the Player of the clutching gold needs to buy a clutch from the Store.

 

Will there ever be mutated dragons or sport colours?

Simple answer: No

 

However, with that said, there is always the possibility for plotting and mayhem that can come in the form of unique (but still canon) dragons popping up. An albino dragon, for example, is not impossible – just incredibly unlikely. On that note, please don't ask for this to happen. The team will bring it about if and when it fits, and not before.

 

Does Sexuality and/or Gender play a role in Impression?

Sexuality: No
Gender: Yes, to an extent.

 

Gold, Bronze and Brown dragons were programed by their creator to look for specific keys in the human they seek as a life partner. While it can’t be completely understood what it is they look for, it can be broadly cast as seeking only the mind of a cis-person. In comparison, green and blue dragons were not programed with as much detail when created, and retain their more firelizard-like tendencies to simply Bond to a human who fits them, even or in spite of, a mind that is at odds with the physical body.

 

 

RANKING CHARACTERS

 

Can I play a gold?

Yes, yes you can. There are an assortment of golds available from previous clutches at the time of writing this, and there will be irregular availability through clutches, though their appearance will be lessening as the population of Pern reaches stable numbers.

 

Does a Gold make me Staff?

No, but it does give you certain responsibilities. As a goldrider, you are responsible for keeping tabs on when your gold rises, clutches and hatches her eggs. You are responsible for running the Hatching (be it NPC or PC) though you may or may not be responsible for creating the dragonets. We encourage you to take part, but it isn’t required.

 

Do I need gold to write dragonets?

Not at all! If you would like to create a dragonet for someone’s character, you are more than welcome to offer your services as well as tell us what dragon you think would best suit them. If your ideas mesh well with their candidate application (of which only the admin are privy to) then we will encourage you to create the dragonet and pass it to us via the ‘Candidate Application’ forum.

 

How many of the different character types can I have?

For female dragonrider limitations, please go here and read more in depth here.



All male-ridden dragonrider colours and ranks can be held in multiply, so long as they are not being wasted; for example, if you happen to have two Weyrleader positions but only one is getting actively played, you may be encouraged to give up the second rank (though not without plot!) to someone else so that they can enjoy the rank and give it the activity it deserves.

 

Additionally, you are encouraged to only play one MasterCrafter, though you may play multiple masters of a craft, and of course Lords and Ladies are available by the handful – especially the minor ones – and there are no limits on how many of those you may play.
