Month 05, 741 AL

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.

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.

Month 09, 739 AL
North: Early Autumn| South: Early Spring
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.

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....

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].

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!

The Secret Santa Event has been extended until the 30th of January, so for those of you (like me!) who were busy over the end of December, we hope you can get your threads up and running over the next few weeks! There has been a lot of interesting interactions so far! As we extended the SSE, there won't be a specific January event this month! Don't worry though, we have something up our sleeve for February!

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!

With the end of December, our Christmas layout has gone back into hiding! You'll be able to use it again at the end of the year, when Christmas again rolls around. You can expect a new layout for the site in the near future.

December 2017

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.

Appearance
     
[Image: ZWHzafQxCPtasonCtKXv5MLy3n0E6BPvILJnjKES...xVNYveNfaQ]
Eyes: L’gan’s eyes are a stormy grey, ringed with a border that is almost black.  His brows are dark and thin, framing his features and giving life to his emotions.  His eyes are guarded around strangers, but open and sparkle with mischief around his loved ones and friends.

Hair: His hair is dark brown, almost black, and curls with a mind of its own.  He tries to keep it cropped short for flying, but frequently forgets, so it varies between a couple inches and almost to his shoulders-and the latter is more frequent.  When it is longer, he ties it back to keep it out of his face during flight.


Height: 5’9”

General Appearance: L’gan filled out from his very gangly teenage appearance into a slender body with lithe limbs. He is still slight of frame, making for an ideal greenrider; quick and light. He keeps fit and can often be found running or doing other exercises when not busy with Weyr or healing lessons, finding that the activity helps quiet his mind.


He has a jagged scar near his elbow and several small bite scars from falling into a tunnel snake nest as a weyrbrat. The arm was broken and he suffered several bites before he was found, but both healed well. The arm bothers him sometimes before rain or snow are due but otherwise he barely gives it any thought. He also has a burn scar on his hip from a training accident where Semath didn’t evade quite quick enough; they were both burned lightly, but enough for them to always be extra cautious in the future.

L’gan has a long, angular face and aquiline nose. He is capable of keeping his features quite passive when needed, but a small smirking smile is never far away among friends.

Dressing Style: 
He tends to wear soft, older clothes, emphasizing comfort over style for everyday. It is rare that he allows himself to be talked into wearing fancy clothes; usually only Gathers garner enough interest in “parading around like a peacock in something itchy that will just end up soiled or stained.”

He is fastidiously clean if it can be helped, having a hatred of dirt and mess ingrained from a young age when helping fetch bandages and medicines for weyrfolk and later working in the Healer hall. Semath isn’t nearly as particular, but always indulges her rider when he wants to give her a bath and oiling, loving the attention.

When not flying he lets his hair loose around his face; it’s just easier than trying to tame it back constantly. Even when cut short it finds a way to get in his eyes, so he usually just lets it grow.

     
Personality
     
[Image: ZWHzafQxCPtasonCtKXv5MLy3n0E6BPvILJnjKES...xVNYveNfaQ]
General Character Traits: L’gan is typically very reserved in most of his interactions. He can get very riled up by friends, but he is slow to anger unless he encounters riders who neglect themselves or their dragons’ care. He is very protective of his family and friends, including his daughters.

That said, he’s as prone to gossip as the next greenrider, and much of his stocism around others is a way to hide his anxieties.  Growing up in a Weyr, rambunctious and willful as any weyrbrat, then being suddenly abandoned during the plague years has left its mark.  He is slower to trust than he would have been, especially after seeing the journeymen stolen.  But he was determined to be a dragonhealer come Thread or flood (hell or high water), and he works tirelessly when a sick dragon is involved.

Habits/Mannerisms: L’gan has a bad habit of biting his lip when it is rough or chapped, which between flying and his chewing on it is almost all the time. His fingers also fidget when he is nervous or anxious, thumb and nails scratching against his palm or other fingers.

Opinions: These can be kept short and sweet; a sentence will suffice.
      Threadfall Theory: There wouldn’t have been a reason for the records to talk of Threadfall and Fall patterns or wing fight positions if Thread wasn’t going to remain a threat.  Yes, it hasn’t fallen in many turns, but sure as there were patterns to its fall before, there are patterns to the intervals between.  Why else would the dragons be fighting so hard to come back to full strength after the plague if there wasn’t a threat on the horizon?


      Stealing/Kidnapping: L’gan felt angry and betrayed by the kidnapping of the journeymen.  Not only for the dragonriders to reveal their survival after the devastation of the plague in such a manner, but that they didn’t even attempt to ask for help. He was still an apprentice, only a few months away from walking the tables when it happened. The anger is somewhat blunted now, but he still resents that he was left behind and overlooked twice in his lifetime.
     Weryrleader S'kef: N/A for non Katilan
      Firelizards: He isn’t sure he believes the story that firelizards started the plague, but he was too young when they all vanished to have more than a fleeting impression of them at all. He enjoys watching their antics though now some have returned from the South.
     Women's loss of honourifics: 04.06.733 - at the World Above graduation, N/A for non Katilans. 
      Return North: He had been praying for it for most of his life, wanting the dragons and their riders to survive, wanting his weyr family to return.



[This section is optional]
Likes: Change the word 'like 1' through 'like 3' into the thing the character likes, following there after with an explanation about why they like it. It should be at least one cohesive sentence for each one.
      Night shifts: L’gan loves the quieter hours of a night shift at the Healer hall or watch duty. There are fewer people around and the sounds are so different it is always a pleasant treat to him.
      Like 2:
      Like 3:

Dislikes: 
      Tunnel snakes - L’gan fell into a tunnel snake nest when he was 11, breaking his arm.  He was bitten several times before he could get out, and he can’t stand the sound of them in the walls.
      Dislike 2:
      Dislike 3:

Strengths: Please include at least one sentence each explaining how they are a strength for your character. 
      Artistic: L’gan is very adept at illustration which comes in handy in anatomical study needed as a healer. It is also useful to help him record as much as possible about dragonhealing techniques.
      Strength 2:
      Strength 3:

Flaws: Please include at least one sentence each explaining how they are a flaw for your character. We encourage a character to posses more flaws than strengths and the two should not mirror each other.
      Withdrawn: L’gan is slow to trust strangers which is unsurprising given his history of abandonment.  He is sometimes accused of seeming “too much in his head,” or aloof as a result.
      Flaw 2:
      Flaw 3:

[end optional section]
     

     
History
     
Father: L’ced (formerly Laniced), b.YYY, d.YYY
   Rank: Wingrider at Fort Weyr of Blue Gemith
Mother: Galia, b.YYY, d.YYY
   Rank: Laundress at Fort Weyr. Particularly skilled with a needle, she helped with some delicate repairs to Gemith’s wing, which is how they met. She shared his weyr until L’ced’s death.
Siblings:
L’gan has several older half siblings: 3 brothers and 2 sisters. His mother had just become pregnant again when the first of the dragons began to fall ill. Gemith was among the first to die, vanishing between abruptly with L’ced still astride. The stress and grief caused her to miscarry.

Past Lovers/Partners:  Only important ones are required.
Current Lovers/Partners: If Applicable.
Children: 

Though L’gan’s preferences run towards men, he has slept with women occasionally.  He has two daughters, Larissa and Elaya. He isn’t as involved with them as he wants to be, but his studies and dragon have kept him busy. Semath is particularly fond of the children and guilts him into seeing them any chance she gets.
Background Story:
 715 & 3 turns:

His father, L’ced, and L'ced's Geminth go between and never return in the 11th month 



 716 & 4 turns:

Left behind during the Weyr evacuation, Galia and Logan seek refuge at the Healer Hall.



725 & 13 turns:

Logan is formally apprenticed to the Healers. He proves to be endlessly curious, hard working, and to have a strong stomach.



732 & 20 turns:

Attaining Jr. Journeyman status, Logan walks the tables with pride. He specializes in trauma but he has also worked hard to develop his illustration skills, focusing on anatomical and botanical illustration. Whenever he gets time, he pours over old records on dragonhealing, convinced the entire population can’t have truly vanished.



735 & 23 turns:

With the return of riders and dragons to Telgar, his faith that some survived is borne out. He begs Masterhealer Quennell for leave to spend some of his time as a journeyman at the Weyr, researching the plague and the survivors and sending his findings back. The idea is met with resistance and anger by several full Healers when it becomes clear that stolen journeymen are among the ranks of the riders, but he is persistent that knowledge must be shared and preserved in order to avoid future recurrences. Eventually he succeeds and is assigned to Telgar with strict instructions to keep meticulous records and sent regular reports.



Late that Turn, after befriending a Searchrider and his dragon, he is startled but pleased by the suggestion that he could be a suitable Candidate. After more arguments with master Healers, an ultimatum is proposed: if Logan does not Impress in two years he will return full time to the Hall or risk the Master stripping his rank. Desperate to Impress and for a chance to become a proper dragonhealer, Logan stands for any Hatching he can at multiple Weyrs, becoming more and more dispirited as each passes.



737 & 25 turns:

When a gangly green gets tangled in her wings and hurt during hatching, Logan fought his way to her side to keep her from being injured further or hurting anyone else in the chaos. By this point, even as he helped her unsnarl her wings from her claws and murmured soothing nonsense, he was convinced he would be returning to the Hall and a lecture from Masterhealer Verec. Semath’s distressed squawk at the thought of her chosen going anywhere without her brought him out of his thoughts and back to reality. She was his; he had Impressed!

739 & 28 turns:
L’gan and Semath graduate with the others of their class. He hears about Weyrleader R’nya’s negotiations with the Healer Hall, and begs to be included on the list. He and Semath transfer to Fort Weyr while arrangements are made.  
     
     
Education
     
Craft: Healer craft and general education.
      Specialty: Trauma

Craft Rank: Jr. Journeyman
      Date Apprenticed: dd.mm.725 AL (13 years old)
      Date Tapped: dd.mm.732 AL (20 years old)
      Mastership Obtained: N/A

Education Details: 
He’s always had a strong stomach, so gore and smells never bother him much.  He acts well under pressure, keeping his cool in the heat of the moment, intently focused on his patient. He also is an excellent illustrator, taking time to practice sketching anatomical structures or medicinal plants.

L’gan always had trouble with medicine compounding. He is good at identifying herbs and other ingredients, but never had the knack for mixing them all together properly.  Which is a problem when he’s one of the few who doesn’t particularly mind the smell of numbweed preparation, but at least there he can just be assigned to chop.

He has a good bedside manner in general, but when he sees evidence of neglect, particularly in the care of dragon, he quickly becomes belligerent and scolds anyone even peripherally involved. This is usually tempered by Semath’s calming influence, but even she becomes agitated and protective when weyrlings are involved.
     
Dragon
     
Dragon Name: Semath
      Name Pronounced: See-math
Dragon Colour: Green
Wing Assigned: See the Wing Listing for current assignments. Put the wing you would most like to join in.
      Wing Rank: Wingrider

Hatching Date: 12.12.736 AL
Birthing Weyr: Fort
Home Weyr: Fort
Clutch Name: New Beginnings
      Clutch Mother: Mizeath
      Clutch Father: Mosiath
      
Appearance: All measurements should be when mature.
      Length: 22 ft
      Height: 11 ft
      Wingspan: 36 ft
      Scars & Markings: Semath has some brighter green scales across her muzzle which L’gan teases are like freckles.  She also has a burn on her shoulder where she didn’t dodge quite fast enough during a training session, but the scar is barely visible; L’gan fussed over her day and night while they both healed. A few small scars are scattered over her wingtips where they dragged and tangled during her hatching and weyrlinghood. 
      Weyrlinghood: Her wings were always just slightly too big for the weyrling and she had to be careful not to let them drag or snag on things. She wasn’t always successful.
      Adulthood: She has grown into a graceful green dragon, small enough for speed but with her larger wings lending additional stamina during flight.

Mindvoice:  Semath is a bubbly, friendly dragon, always excited to meet new folks, and her voice reflects this. Her chipper voice is enough to make L'gan crack a smile on the worst of days when he needs it most.

General Character Traits: Calm and steady, she helps act as a foil to her rider’s anxieties.  She is outgoing and friendly where he is reserved, gently forcing him to come out of his shell. Semath’s calming presence is also helpful when he is dealing with a particularly bad injury to a dragon.  She will nuzzle or lay with another dragon to soothe them, or just visit with him to keep their spirits up during recovery.


This should be at least two paragraphs, generally encompassing the things included in the above sections, as well as introducing any other aspects that didn't fit into those, but still applies to the character.

Habits/Mannerisms: Semath’s tail swishes and gives away her mood, similar to a feline.  Angry lashing back and forth when L’gan is upset or she is mad, gentle swishing of the tip when she is relaxed, et cetera.

[This section is optional]
Likes: Change the word 'like 1' through 'like 3' into the thing the character likes, following there after with an explanation about why they like it. It should be at least one cohesive sentence for each one.
      Chasing wherries- she likes how they scatter and squawk about. 

Dislikes: Change the word 'dislike 1' through 'dislike 3' into the thing the character dislikes, following there after with an explanation about why they dislike it. It should be at least one cohesive sentence for each one.
      Pushy riders or dragons - just because you’re a dragon or rider is no excuse to be rude

Strengths: Please include at least one sentence each explaining how they are a strength for your character. 
      Stamina - because of her wingspan she can stay aloft longer than other greens her size but she hasn’t sacrificed agility
      
Flaws: Please include at least one sentence each explaining how they are a flaw for your character. We encourage a character to posses more flaws than strengths and the two should not mirror each other.
      Curiousity- she got herself and L’gan in lots of trouble as a weyrling wandering into weyrs that weren’t hers or going exploring

RP Sample
     
L’gan paced nervously in the hall outside Verec’s office. Aside from a few brief trips back during his Candidacy, he hadn’t visited the Healer’s Hall since leaving.  It had been the hardest decision of his life to pack a bag and knock on Masterhealer Quennell’s door all those turns ago when dragons returned to the Weyrs, asking to be stationed at Telgar to learn how the dragons had survived the plague.

Like many of the others he had been angry and upset when he discovered the truth that surviving dragonriders had kidnapped the journeymen and took them south.  He was furious about the duplicity of the action and the disregard for the families and peers of the men stolen.  However, a small part of him was also angry about being left behind again.  For turns he had studied the old records, convinced against all logic that some dragons would survive the terrible plague and return.  For turns he had dreamed of helping them and becoming a proper dragonhealer.  

He cut off the train of thought with irritation.  All of that woolgathering wouldn’t help anything if he couldn’t convince Verec to let him back in, to allow the greenrider to finish his training.  Weyrleader R’nya had made an arrangement with the Healer Hall to train some of the Weyr’s women, and it was a chance he would never get again.  L’gan had begged to be included on the roster of names the moment he heard the gossip in the lower caverns about it, and found himself with the awkward task of bearing that roster to the Masterhealer for review.  Someone had a sick sense of humor, he thought.

Beckitt
Candidate
[Image: 67b03f80a95546cebd336e3661eb0819630d5ca1.jpg]
Charlie Cox
Important Details
Original Name: Beckitt
Pronounced: Bek-it
Honorific: n/a (candidate)
Pronounced:
Nicknames: Kitt, Birdy

Primary Rank: Candidate
Secondary Ranks:

Place of Birth: Katilia
Date of Birth:12.12.721 AL
Searched/Stolen By:
Searched/Stolen Date:
Impression Age:
Physical Age:

Exiled With: N/A

Partner: N/A, or @name, if a N/L/PC please hotlink.
Appearance
[Image: a4eee907f05a2f8a1c8a0150738878aa56f426d9.jpg]
Eyes: Dark brown, trusting, and frequently lit up with laughter.

Hair: Brunette and wavy when long, worn loose around his face. The bangs tend to flop into his eyes and he swears he’ll cut it all off when he Impresses or the next time he’s hungover.

Height: 5’11”

General Appearance:
His face has just finally begun to lose its roundness, starting to lengthen. His features are still soft though, from his trusting brown eyes to his dimpling smile. He won’t ever have cheekbones you can cut yourself on, but that sounds too aloof and mean for him anyway.

He got out of shape during the year he returned to the north due to illness, but he’s back to exercise- he prefers swimming, but will run if there are no other options. He has a birthmark on his shoulder- a strawberry mark. He doesn’t like it, but he doesn’t make a fuss over it either.


Dressing Style: Beckitt dresses stylishly when he can get away with it, even if it’s just incorporating a bit of embroidery on the cuffs and collars of his everyday shirts. He loves excuses to wear fancier clothes, but they are few and far between. He is a tidy person, and it carries over to his appearance.

Personality
[Image: 832e5b0bcea537bc6f112237ef9f90f5fc23969b.jpg]
General Character Traits: Beckitt tries hard to be helpful and friendly to as many as he can. But his naivete can be a problem sometimes and his rushing to defend his friends in squabbles doesn’t always end well.

He learned the value of hard work in Katilia and he desperately wants to Impress in order to impress his father and share that joy with his friends. He’s a diligent student, though he wishes he could move out of Candidate classes and into Weyrling classes. Even the repeated times standing on burning sands and being passed over haven’t killed that dream.

Habits/Mannerisms: He has a habit of arching his eyebrows in an unwitting mimic of his father. He also is constantly humming or singing while working.

Opinions: These can be kept short and sweet; a sentence will suffice.
Threadfall Theory: Why are more people not concerned about this? The low numbers of the dragon riders concern him even more though.
Stealing/Kidnapping: Wary at first, except around the Harpers, he didn’t quite understand what had happened. He was upset when he found out they had been stolen from friends and family, but they did need the additional riders. He hopes they’ll eventually be forgiven. [
span class="ProfilePrompt2"]Weryrleader S'kef:[/span] He wouldn’t have minded a brownrider in charge, but he never cared for S’kef. Everything about the man rubs him the wrong way, and Beckitt avoids him like an infectious disease. Besides, while rank is important, so is inspiring your people.
Firelizards: Beckitt was terrified at first, having grown up on stories of how they spread the fearful Plague. But now that several of his friends have Impressed them he is slowly beginning to come around. And the convenience for sending messages can’t be beat.
Women's loss of honourifics: 04.06.733 - at the World Above graduation, While thrilled at the idea of being a ‘real’ rider right from Impression, he was horrified at S’kef’s revoking female blue and green rider’s rights to the honorifics. They would be fighting just like the men, and should be honored the same way.
Return North: Beckitt was anxious about the return north and leaving the only home he’d known. But the riders had a duty to Pern and they need to be ready for when Thread falls again, and the best place to prepare is north. Otherwise the people will never get used to having them around again.

[This section is optional]
Likes: Change the word 'like 1' through 'like 3' into the thing the character likes, following there after with an explanation about why they like it. It should be at least one cohesive sentence for each one.
Like 1: Music: Beckitt loves all music, but especially reels and other dancing music as they remind him of Gathers.
Like 2:
Like 3:

Dislikes: Change the word 'dislike 1' through 'dislike 3' into the thing the character dislikes, following there after with an explanation about why they dislike it. It should be at least one cohesive sentence for each one.
Dislike 1: Fellis: He has terrible nightmares whenever he’s given fellis, so he fights tooth and nail to avoid it when he’s sick.
Dislike 2:
Dislike 3:

Strengths: Please include at least one sentence each explaining how they are a strength for your character.
Strength 1: Singing: Beckett loves to sing, and can frequently be heard humming or singing while working.
Strength 2: Loyalty: He is fiercely supportive of his friends and loyal to the Weyr. He won’t stand to hear negative things said about either.
Strength 3:

Flaws: Please include at least one sentence each explaining how they are a flaw for your character. We encourage a character to posses more flaws than strengths and the two should not mirror each other.
Flaw 1: Trusting: Beckett wears his heart on his sleeve, and it’s gotten him into trouble several times (romantically and personally).
Flaw 2: Rash: He sometimes doesn’t think before he speaks or before he acts, especially if emotions are high
Flaw 3:

721 & 1 turns: Beckitt is born and turned over to the creche. His father shows little interest, which is almost understandable given the tragedy of his half siblings’ deaths. Its continuation is hardly surprising.
730 & 9 turns: Journeymen are stolen from the North. Beckitt doesn’t like the sudden influx of strangers, but he is fascinated by the Harpers and the new songs they have. He spends as much time with them as they’ll allow, soaking music up like a sponge.
734 & 13 turns: Several of his friends and his mother are lost in the landslide which struck this Turn. He is depressed for months during the rebuild. It’s the lowest anyone has ever seen him, and he hardly sings.
735 & 14 turns: The move to Telgar is fascinating and terrifying. It’s freezing by comparison to Katilia, and he spends most of the turn sick, missing his first chances at Standing.
736 & 15 turns: He moves to Ista where the climate is more what he’s used to. He’s much happier again and gets his strength back, and he’s thrilled Mylorah and a couple other friends moved there too so he’s not on his own.
739 & 18 turns: As more and more of his friends Impress or move to other Weyrs he begins to wonder if he will ever impress. He still puts on an optimistic front, but his closest friends can see right through it.

RP Sample
Beckitt sprinted down the hall after class, desperate for the open air after the stuffy rock. He dodged several adults and called apologies over his shoulder, sure it would get him in trouble later, but willing to deal with it for now. Skidding around a corner he caught sight of the fading winter light and grinned. Just enough light for a climb, he thought. Even better than a run!

Kitt adjusted his bag and began to climb up the wall of the weyrbowl, cheerily ignoring shouts and chastising calls. He made it to his favorite ledge and spread out his homework and an apple he’d filched from the kitchen, humming as he began to work in the light breeze.

Appearance
[Image: tumblr_pwsk42Wz3t1toc00fo2_400.jpg]
Eyes: Brown, trusting / expressive brows she keeps carefully shaped and delicate.

Hair: Deep brown with a hint of wave to it. Was worn longer when she Impressed but in recent years she has cut it to chin length to make it more manageable.

Height: 5’8”

General Appearance:
Slender and willowy figure, not given to sloth. She pays strict attention to what she eats and runs frequently to keep herself in shape. She is very conscious of impressions, working hard to keep herself tidy and refined as befits her rank.

She has an oval face, aristocratic bone structure (with cheekbones you could cut yourself on), expressive brows, and a long Grecian nose. Usually given to lofty facial expressions, she does occasionally slip and let herself grin.

Dressing Style: She prefers crisp clothes of fine woven or soft fabrics, though she keeps around several old shirts and a pair of trousers she filched from a friend for days she needs a little comfort.

Personality
[Image: tumblr_pwsk42Wz3t1toc00fo3_1280.jpg]
General Character Traits: A little too focused on what others think of her, though it usually comes out as snobbery or exasperation. She’s very opinionated, though she does her best to bite her tongue when she thinks it matters. She’s used to hiding her sexuality in the crafthall, so coming to the Weyr was a revelation. She’s still circumspect, knowing that as a goldrider there are Expectations, but she’s also enjoying her newfound freedoms. She values discretion in her partners and has been carefully cultivating connections.

Habits/Mannerisms: She’s prone to exasperated sighs and eye rolls and she can’t stand to have her hands idle, whether she’s spinning or just fidgeting with a necklace.

Opinions: These can be kept short and sweet; a sentence will suffice.
Threadfall Theory: Privately she doubts it will ever come back, but she’s clever enough to play that opinion close to the vest when around other dragonriders.
Stealing/Kidnapping:
Weryrleader S'kef: n/a
Firelizards: She’s getting used to them, but finds them too energetic and prone to squabbling.
Women's loss of honourifics: 04.06.733 - at the World Above graduation, n/a
Return North: n/a

Likes:
Soft, fine fabrics: She always loved to sneak a touch of the fine fabrics when visiting her father, and now she can actually make a dress from them for herself for special occasions. She loves an excuse to wear her finer clothes.
Like 2:
Like 3:

Dislikes:
Sloppy mending: If you’re older than 5 there is simply no excuse to have jagged or larger stitches, and if she catches you mangling her clothes there will be hell to pay
Idleness: Especially in others, when it's clear they're shirking responsibilities, but she also can't stand not having something to do herself.
Dislike 3:

Strengths:
Dexterity: Through years of weavercraft training, she is very good at delicate handwork or more fiddly aspects of harness repair.
Tenacity: She doesn’t quickly or easily abandon an idea or a person once she has a plan.
Strength 3:

Flaws:
Opinionated: She sometimes forms opinions too quickly and can be stubborn to convince.
Perfectionist: Get a job done right or do it again. When she feels others aren't as meticulous, she'll call them out on it, which sometimes results in friction. It also leads to a tendency to obsess over sometimes insignificant details.
Flaw 3:

History
Father: Heylin, b.YYY, d.YYY
Rank: Master-rank Weaver
Mother: Leanna , b.YYY, d.YYY
Rank:. n/a
Siblings:
Past Lovers/Partners: Only important ones are required. Vondal (NPC), deceased- when she was 18
Current Lovers/Partners: If Applicable.
Children: 1 son born after Iliyith’s first flight in 738
Background Story:
714 & 0 turns:
730 & 16 turns: Helyna marries Vondal, a Jr. Journeyman at the Weavercraft hall and a dear friend of several years. It helps them both hide their true preferences behind a veil of respectability.
731 & 17 turns: Vondal dies of a fever while on circuit and she is devastated at the loss of her friend. A few other marriage offers come her way, but she turns them all down with the excuse of grief and focuses on her craft instead to attempt apprenticeship.
732 & 18 turns: Helyna applies and is accepted as a Jr. Apprentice to the craft, throwing herself into work to drown out her pain. Her wit becomes sharper and more scathing than it had been without him around to temper it, and she is less concerned now with seeming opinionated or haughty.
735 & 21 turns: Helyna is Searched, and has mixed feelings about leaving the crafthall. She has made something of herself there in recent years, but also finds memories around every corner. At the same time, everyone has heard the rumors about dragonriders, and she is curious if the “loose morality” of the Weyr life is actually true; anything is better than keeping up pretenses.
736 & 22 turns: Helyna Impresses gold Iliyith at the Fragmented Memories clutch in Fort.
738 & 24 turns: Iliyith’s first flight brings along some unexpected baggage, but she can’t bring herself to between like some of the others advise. She’s not an involved mother, but her son does make her smile when she visits him in the creche.
739 & 25 turns: Fires break out at Ista and it rattles her careful veneer of control. To get that feeling back she throws herself into organization, helping to arrange supplies of bandages and other essentials, but she hates it when she's assigned to help uncover victims. The sight of the burns unnerves her and it feels like it takes months to get rid of the smell of smoke once everything is finally extinguished.
740 & 26 turns: Helyna is appalled by the lack of control surrounding Thallyath's maiden flight. That a blue should be able to fly a gold is simply ridiculous, and she's horrified when she hears rumors about the disastrous Touching--let alone the Hatching. When it's announced that Casa will be taking over as Ista's Weyrwoman when Benden reopens, Helyna is furious. Still, she manages to bite her tongue, knowing that loose talk could utterly ruin the already tenuous reputation of the Weyrs in the wake of the return North. Every scrap of respect is necessary if Thread actually does come back and they truly will need to rely on the Holds and Crafts.

Craft: Weavercraft
Specialty: Tatting (Lacemaking)

Craft Rank: Jr. Apprentice

Education Details: The daughter of a master-rank Weaver and his craft-bred wife, she learned aspects of the craft from a young age, helping to prepare common pigments and learning to spin as soon as she could hold a spindle. She learned tatting from her husband, a journeyman, and became good enough to apply for a junior apprenticeship, but her plans were derailed by his death and her Search a year later.

RP Sample
Helyna stormed into her rooms after hearing the news. Honestly, it was ridiculous. Just because she was technically a senior rider didn’t mean that brat had any notion of how to run a Weyr.

Don’t tell me you wanted it? Helyna scowled as her dragon spoke, pointing out something she hadn’t really considered. “I don’t want it.” Iliyith snorted derisively at the evasion. “Fine, part of me does; just not now,” she admitted, walking through to where her gold lounged in the sun and scratching her eye ridge affectionately.

“Mostly I just think she’s too inexperienced. Has she shown any aptitude at managing the daily tasks expected of her? She’s been cossetted her whole life.” Helyna didn’t know anything about the hardships those in Katilia faced, and dismissed them off-hand since she had no framework for them. The girl hadn’t fought her way to Jr. Apprenticeship in an antagonistic and misogynistic Craft like Helyna had, and if rumors were true was more interested in enjoying herself than applying effort. Therefore, she must have led a blessed life.

Why didn’t you speak up? Iliyith asked. The gold couldn’t understand how anyone could stand these subtleties. Why didn’t humans just say what they meant? “It isn’t the right time. But I’ll be damned if I’m not tossing my hat in for the next chance.”

There are others ahead of us. Helyna laughed. “So there are. But I’m fine with playing a long game if you are, darling.”
