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!

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

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.

***WIP character, female blue rider. Still not sure how to add an image...advice and feedback welcome!*** @ThistleProse

Name: Aederyn
      Pronounced: AID-err-in
Nicknames: Ryn, (pronounced RIN) by those she is close with. Her younger foster sister called he Riri (REE-ree) briefly when they were young, and occasionally her family will still use the term. If anyone else should call her that, they risk personal injury.

Dragon Name:
      Dragon Pronounced:
Dragon Colour: Blue
Wing Assigned:
      Wing Rank: Wingrider

Primary Rank:
      Secondary Ranks:

Place of Birth: A runner station between Fort Hold and Southern Boll. Her parents tend the station and the runners that move messages through it.
Date of Birth: 02.09.720 AL
Searched/Stolen By: Neither. Stolen by her dragon at Impression. She was in the Weyr running messages when the Hatching started. Curious as having only attended a single hatching before at the age of nine turns, Aederyn wanted to stay and watch another. With all of the confusion, she would have needed to stay until afterwards anyway as there were sure to be many more messages to run, so why not? She lingered on the steps to the audience seating area, preferring to stand rather than sit, and among the barely controlled chaos got knocked to the Sands, wherein those eyes, glowing red with hunger, sought her out and claimed her.
      Impression Age: 20 turns
     
Partner: N/A

Eyes: Large, round, and such a dark blue they are often mistaken as brown at first glance, framed by thick but pale eyelashes that match her red hair.

Hair: Rich red-orange that falls in loose but thick, unruly curls when she wears it down. Usually Ryn keeps it pulled into a plaited knot on the back of her head, or in a high ponytail off of her neck; a habit from her runner days, but has been wearing it half-up-half-down lately, in an effort to look less severe.

Height: 5’8”

General Appearance: As befits a runner, Aederyn is thin and mostly leg in her general proportions. She’s muscled in the sinewy athletic manner of her craft, and was mercifully gifted with less bulk around the chest and hips/buttocks, giving her a flatter chest and slim figure, without undue emphasis on her femaleness. However her strength should not be judged on first appearances, as her figure is almost pure muscle and she is stronger than she looks.

Due to spending so much time outdoors her face, shoulders, and arms sport freckles to the point of almost being solid in some places, but she is otherwise pale. Her jawline is sharp, matching her piercing gaze and angular build. Some might consider her pretty, most find her somewhat plain. She isn’t bothered by it much either way.

Dressing Style: Trousers are Aederyn’s preferred style, as skirts and shorts often lead to uncomfortable chafing or getting tangled in excess fabric. A loose, oversized tunic provides freedom of movement, and a soft wherhide belt and ankle-high wherhide boots complete her look. Of course, a belt pouch and belt knife are also always present.

General Character Traits: Aederyn is tough and self-sufficient, quick to think and quicker on her feet. Having spent so much time running so long on the traces across Pern for the first portion of her life, she is perfectly fine being left alone with her thoughts, and in fact, prefers it. She is very much introverted in her tendencies, preferring to spend time alone or among a small group of her selected friends than among a large crowd. Oddly, despite her preference for small groups instead of crowds, she does enjoy Gathers, particularly the dancing. She loves to dance, and the livelier, the better! Her introverted tendencies conflict with Weyr life now, though, and she finds herself at odds between the social norm to be among the other weyrfolk and her inner desire to retreat to her and her dragon’s weyr.

She is opinionated and decisive. She takes things as they come and tries not to spend too much time thinking on a decision before making it. Though, as a thinker, if given enough valid and true information against her current opinion, her opinions can be changed. She is very straightforward, because she doesn’t know how to be anything else. The theories and execution of politics and social conversation elude her, as they were never anything she was particularly exposed to, nor did she have a desire to familiarize herself with them, anyhow. Due to the lack of social experience, she is a bit awkward and finds herself either oblivious to social cues or far overanalyzing them. This results in more anxiety than she would like to admit, and is a part of why she prefers to spend her spare time alone.

She finds it difficult to get close to people because she is unsure how to do so, or finds that she draws herself away when she feels she is connecting with someone. When she does manage to warm up to someone, she is a pleasant sort, grinning broadly and laughing easily. She loves music, but believes in her own mind that she can’t carry a tune to save her life. While she doesn’t have the voice of a firelizard, she does sing well enough to not be painful to listen to.

She keeps a cool head in chaotic situations, able to let her quick thinking and decisiveness rule and carry her through, though afterwards, when she is finally able to take in events, she has been known to fall apart, melting into a quivering puddle of Aederyn.

She is not prone to violence, preferring instead to respond to provocation with a quick, firm, and well-thought out word. If insulted or questioned because of her gender, she makes it a point of proving her worth by doing exactly what she was told she was poor at or incapable of doing because of her sex, and allowing the results to speak for themselves.

Habits/Mannerisms: Aederyn bites her fingernails, particularly if she is uncomfortable. She tries to limit herself to the last two on each hand, however if she’s particularly stressed even the ‘off-limits’ nails are fair game.

Opinions:
      Threadfall Theory: It could happen. Better to be safe and prepared than sorry because of a lack of preparation. It seems events are moving that direction. She’ll believe it when it happens, but until then, why not get ready just in case?
      Stealing/Kidnapping: While previously against it, 100%, she sees the reasoning behind it for Search. Past that, still not fond of the idea.
     Weryrleader S'kef:
      Firelizards: Some of the smaller ones are nothing more than pets and annoyances, however the larger ones can be very useful
     Women's loss of honourifics:
      Return North:

Father: Ardin, b.690, d. N/A
   Rank: holder, master to runner station.
Mother: Nensi, b.694, d. N/A
   Rank: holder, tender of runner station.
Siblings:
Older brother, Alekse, (AL-lex-ee), born 717. Journeyman runner.
younger sister, Cairlyn (CARE-lin), born 722. Married to a holder.
Younger fosterling sister, Meri, (MER-ree) born 724, apprenticed as a runner at the station her parents tend.
Past Lovers/Partners: Several other runners when she was younger.
Current Lovers/Partners: N/A
Children: One, sort of. She fell pregnant at 17 turns, however the pregnancy did not go through to term and nearly killed her in the process. She would have had a son, had he been carried to term and lived. If she was too young for childbearing, or something just went wrong in the womb or the child was not formed properly, she and her family are unsure, but since then she has been very careful not to fall pregnant again.

Craft: Runner. She specialized in running messages back and forth across Pern until she Impressed.
 
Craft Rank: was previously a journeyman runner.
      Date Tapped:
      Mastership Obtained: N/A

Education Details: Ryn is familiar with all of the basic teaching ballads and basic math. She found history a bit daunting outside of the ballads, and her mind tended to wander during those lessons. She preferred activities that exercised her thinking and problem solving abilities

I have not added anything in the way of her dragon or Sample RP yet as I wanted to get a feel for if Aederyn will work for RP-ing here or needed to be tweaked/altered first. I also wanted to claim some pics of Rose Leslie for character reference/face claim, I have not seen anyone using her face yet, but I'm not sure how to do that.

     Weryrleader S'kef: a bit unorthodox that a brown rider is weyrleader, but since it has no direct bearing on her, she doesn’t much care either way.

     Women's loss of honourifics: N/A

Mother: Nensi, b.694, d. N/A
   Rank: holder, tender of runner station.
Siblings:

younger sister, Cairlyn (CARE-lin), born 722. Married to a holder.
Younger fosterling sister, Meri, (MER-ree) born 725, related as she is the daughter of her mother's sister.
Past Lovers/Partners: Several other runners when she was younger.
Current Lovers/Partners: N/A
Children: One, sort of. She fell pregnant at 17 turns, however the pregnancy ended before her fourth month and nearly killed her in the process. She would have had a son, had he been carried to term and lived. If she was too young for childbearing, or something just went wrong in the womb or the child was not formed properly, she is unsure. Only her older brother and youngest fosterling sister know of her pregnancy. Since then she has been very careful not to fall pregnant again, and very hesitant to engage in any relationships to avoid anything extending to physical intimacy.

Craft: Runner.
Craft Rank: Junior Journeyman, though other crafters and holders see it as a bit of a joke. Her older brother thinks she deserves full Journeyman rank, but that isn’t likely to ever happen.
      Date Tapped:
      Mastership Obtained: N/A

Education Details: Aederyn is familiar with all of the basic teaching ballads and basic math. She is also a competent reader/writer. She found history a bit daunting outside of the ballads, and her mind tended to wander during those lessons. She preferred activities that exercised her thinking and problem solving abilities.

Anything else?: She has a brown firelizard that she Impressed three turns ago, whom she named Rudi. (ROO-dee) His egg was a gift from her brother. He also has a brown. Her father was very unhappy with this. He doesn’t see them as anything more than pets, and if anyone should have them, a female child is the last one who should be receiving one. But after Rudi alerted Alekse and Meri to Aederyn’s sickness (her miscarriage, but nobody else was told of the exact nature of her ailment) he sees them as mildly useful and allows Aederyn to Run farther and for longer before returning to her home hold. The little brown has garnered some harsh looks from others, and as a result Aederyn typically sends him to the roof or high rafters, out of the way, out of sight, and thus out of mind of any who would judge her for having him.

RP sample:
Aederyn slowed her pace as she neared the crest of the little hill, allowing the spongy moss-covered trace to cushion her strides and absorb the impact of her feet. Her muscles ached dully, an indicator of the long hours she’d been running. Dawn was coming; the sky was showing slightly greener along the eastern horizon and the shadows played tricks on her eyes. Station 284 would be reached before sunrise, though. Her legs ached with her exertion, but not enough to rightly be called fatigue. She would make it in plenty of time and still in good health. She allowed herself to slow to a walking pace and finally stop as the crest leveled out, shaking out her tired joints and taking in the subtly brightening path ahead. A change in the pre-dawn sky caught her attention, and she watched them as they glided down to where she imagined the Weyr rested in the mountain range on the horizon, a smile playing across her thin lips. Dragons! Too far away to see their colors, but judging by their size she guessed they were either still fairly young or just blues and greens. Above her, Rudi chirruped in question before diving down to herd her forward. Aederyn playfully swatted at his brown tail as she pulled her waterskin from where it was strapped against her thigh, swishing and spitting her first small mouthful and swallowing the next. Another few small sips and she put it back, the crisp morning air sending a slight chill down her back. She’d been too idle for too long and the sweat was cooling on her skin. No matter, she would warm up again soon. She patted the message pouch where it rested at the small of her back before lifting her knees into the lope every runner prided themselves on. She could carry this mile-eating pace for days, she sometimes felt. Another hour would do for now, though.

She hadn’t been to station 284 yet…She’d been to a few others of the surrounding stations on the eastern side of the mountains and even been to the famous 300 at Fort Hold, with baths that had a constant flow of hot water and in-ground tubs so deep even the tallest runner could stand on the bottom and still have water above their head. Somehow, though, the little station of 284 had eluded her, and she was glad to mark another off of her list. She hoped to visit every runner station on Pern, so any new one she visited was, at the very least, progress toward that goal. After 284 she would hopefully pick up a run to Tillek and then back up toward Ruatha before returning home to 298. She’d covered most of the southern half of the continent, staying primarily along the coast, venturing from Southern Boll all the way to the tip of Nerat’s peninsula, but never farther north then Lemos. Her father hadn’t permitted that. Apparently the female form was too delicate for the harsher cold, which was complete herdbeast dung. But she’d do as he said if she wanted to keep running. The sky brightened and she quickened her pace, the trace widening ahead of her as it turned to run parallel to the road.
