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

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.

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.

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.

Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 32 to 40 C range, making it a highly desirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the chilly mid-spring weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind.

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

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


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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

It had been a few days since her enchanting encounter with the beautiful bronze dragon, and it's rider... though his features seemed to blend in to his face, whereas the dragon remained a shining beacon of memory of the dragons who once ruled Pern and now... did again. It made entire sense to her that the Dragons and Dragonriders were given tithe, she believed (like her traditional father) that the threat of thread was immanent, growing ever closer as the red star loomed eerily in the distance.

And so, the Dragons and Dragonriders were slightly elevated from the rest, above the Lord Holders even, and the Craftmasters... but they needed the Holds as much as the Holds needed the Weyrs... Rakka told herself as she shuffled down the path from the cavehold towards the cots. She had clutched in her arms a basket with things her mother had told her to bring to one of the cotholds for a sick holder.

And of course it was Rakka who had to do it, Rakka do this, Rakka do that, Rakka be here, Rakka go there. She rolled her eyes as she shuffled towards the cothold and deposited the basket outside the door, she wasn't going in there, she didn't want to get sick. She gave a brisk knock and then backed away. She would have to return soon to the caves which made up the dank, smelly, and damp home she'd lived in her entire life.

But she wasn't going to hurry, dark eyes darting around she watched with some interest at the bustle of people doing whatever it is they did... she should know more about what happened in the hold, being the daughter of the Lord Holder of this minor little hold beholdened to Crom. She shuddered in her mind, just thinking about all these things, the amount of times she'd thought the word hold it didn't even sound like a word anymore!

A low hum escaped her lips as she trudged back, no, there was no hurry.

B’jin looked down at the Hold as they circled above, the dragons spiralling slowly downwards, and scrunched up his nose. The Hold was small, out of the way, and in B’jin’s experience that usually meant they were absolutely fawned over in wordless awe, or they were given the stink eye from wary and withdrawn individuals. Neither was overly fun, though he supposed the former was at least more manageable. Candidates could come out of a fawning crowd; it was harder to convince the suspicious ones that their kid should come away to Impress a dragon.

We should find a couple, Larrikith said easily, as she finally back winged so she could land in the courtyard, tucking her wings in so Ayyonth and Tybalith could also land, one to each side of her. She snorted lowly and shook herself out, standing up and then sitting down primly as she turned her head to look at Tybalith. See if you can pick out any good ones, she instructed, before looking around herself at those that were coming closer to the three dragons and their riders.

B’jin watched the crowd grow, a friendly smile forming easily on his lips as he took his riding helmet and goggles off, attaching them to the strap in front of him that was made for just that, and then swung a leg over to slide with practised grace down Larrikith’s side to land on the ground at her feet. He pulled his gloves off, tucking them into his back pocket as he peered around. “Hello!” he greeted cheerfully, and was pleased when some people said hello back, while still others gave hesitant waves. Several were gawking at the dragons. It really was fun to be a dragonrider.

“I’m B’jin, and this is my Larrikith.” He said easily, indicating the green dragon behind him. She snorted at him, but was too busy Searching to pay him any real heed. Her attention was divided between eyeballing the crowd for potential future dragonriders, and answering any questions or quips Tybalith sent her way. “My companions are R’nd and Ayyonth,” he indicated the blue pair, “and our trainees, D’lyne and Tybalith.” He waved at the young woman and her green. “We’re here on Search! If you are interested, please come this way!” And B’jin set the eager youngsters up in a haphazard line, so the dragons could examine them a little more closely than was needed, because it made for a good show.


Jenn's Daelyne will most likely be joining the thread, but Sunset's R'nd will most likely be chilling in the background :)

Dragons in the sky! That was a definite reason to quicken her pace as her gaze followed the not one, not two, but three glorious dragons. A blue smaller much smaller than the bronze K’dar rode and two greens. She wondered what could bring three dragons here to their small hold. It had to be big... or it wouldn’t be three. Her stomach churned, or perhaps grumbled as she conveniently forgot about the rest of her chores to join the growing throng of people surrounding the Dragonriders.

Brown eyes were wide as she caught a snippet of the sentence. Search! But what were they looking for, likely lads? It would be great if one of the smarter, more capable of the holder boys were searched, but it would probably lead to envy among the other boys... and herself, though there was a girl on a green so perhaps there was hope after all. It certainly couldn’t hurt to listen a bit longer. Today her hair was thoroughly and tightly plaited, ensuring it would not repeat its antics of a few days prior. The willowy girl looked, wide eyed from B’jin, to the woman and the over to the blue rider.

Would her father even allow her to go if she was searched? Her stomach twisted, he had too much respect and probably fear for Dragonriders to refuse them one of his sons, but what about a second daughter? Her lips curved into a smile, if there was any possibility of her leaving this hold in something other than marriage she had to try for it. It wasn’t like she was like her sister, she couldn’t marry some random holder and have ten or more children.

Rakka felt out of place in the predominantly male group of individuals who were interested in becoming Dragonriders. Her brown eyes instinctively moved between B’jin and D’lyne, sensing they were the two to impress, or at least get some positive reaction out of. She was on the brink of saying something, but kept thinking better of it, of all the moments to be undecided now was probably the worst. She had managed to slip her way near the front of the partial line, not the most sportsmanlike (or for that matter ladylike) thing to do, but Rakka didn’t care, not right now.

When finally she felt like she’d made eye contact with one of the Dragonriders she spoke. “I’m Rakka.” She finally conquered the inability to speak. Her voice, she was glad to hear, was clear and calm. She set her mouth in determination and waited for one of the riders to speak.

Tybalith landed neatly next to Larrikith, graceful and not at all what her force of personality would have dictated if she was any other dragon. D'lyne grinned with pride when her green did so, Tybalith was ever a wrecking ball and when the dragon did something so elegantly, D'lyne was pleased with her. Tybalith rumbled with amusement at her rider's thoughts and listened closely to Larrikith as the other green began instructing her.

How will I know whether they're good or not? the wildly marked green asked, Is there some special ping or something that makes them good? D'lyne muttered under her breath, slapping a hand over her face, and moved to slip out of her riding straps and to the ground. "You know exactly what Larrikith is telling you, foolish," she rolled her eyes at the green, "This isn't your first search, shithead." I know that... I just wanted to make sure Larrikith wasn't losing her touch is all, the green told her with a sideways glance at the other green and the blue that had accompanied them.

"One of these days you're going to be an ass to the wrong dragon," D'lyne shook her head and allowed B'jin to make the introductions. Tybalith inhaled deeply and peered at the line of youths. She had a pretty strong inkling of who of the boys was likely but she wanted to run it past Larrikith as she took a moment to study the girl that walked up. Second boy from the right and the last boy on the left, she sent to Larrikith as the boys came closer and closer. Tybalith liked to put on a show as much as B'jin did and took a moment to get down to the boy's levels, nostrils flaring as she snuffled in close to snort a breath around his hair while D'lyne choked back her laughter.

You'll do, she told the first boy she mentioned to Larrikith as she shoved the boy gently with her nose. She's bold as hell isn't she? the green said as the redheaded girl pushed her way forward, I like her.

B’jin enjoyed bringing D’lyne along on Searches; for one, she entertained him and her dragon kept Larrikith on her toes. But also, the fact that she was a woman on green – and Tybalith was incredibly eye catching and undoubtably green – meant that women were usually more likely to step forward and try to be one of those that were Searched. While B’jin and Larrikith still preferred to put their stamp on the women and men that would Impress to gold or bronze, that didn’t mean they were oblivious to the youngsters that were inclined towards other colours.

While Larrikith was exchanging quips with Tybalith, B’jin waved kids forward or off, following the instructions of the dragon and her apprentice. The girl that came forward was greeted with an inquisitive look from Larrikith as Tybalith pointed her out, and the little, round green dragon shoved her own nose forward, snuffling at Rakka’s hair, and breathing against her face with what was probably questionably flavoured air. I like her, the little dragon said, lifting her head after a moment and considering the girl.

You have promise, Larrikith said cheerfully to Rakka, letting her voice touch the girl’s open mind and poke around gently, not prying for secrets but just engaging in her topmost thoughts. B’jin bounced up beside Larrikith’s head, putting a hand to her cheek as he grinned at the young blonde. “Would you like to come with us, Rakka?” He asked, doing a mental gauge of the girl’s age. She looked old enough to make the decision on her own, assuming she wasn’t already married; he assumed she wasn’t and if she was, that she was doing a damn good job of hiding that fact from his dragon. No husband, Larrikith said quietly to B’jin. Possessive father. B’jin chose not to respond, just waited quietly for the girl to speak.

Her brown eyes lit up as she made eye contact with the young woman. She was pretty, prettier than Rakka? The girl contemplated this thought, mulling it over in her mind before deciding that no, she was prettier than the girl, if only marginally. Which meant, she could be nice to-and maybe even become friends with her... or was she getting ahead of herself.

Rakka suppressed her own mirth when the beautiful green dragon snorted in one of the hold boys face. It was adorable to watch the boys shocked and nervous reaction. But he stood his ground, and she felt proud of her hold in that moment. Blinking as she found herself looking into the lovely eyes of the green dragon before her, Rakka suppressed the urge to giggle. It was so beautiful, lovely. She could get lost in those eyes.

She stood her ground bravely as the odd odor of the dragons breath overwhelmed her and the creature shuffled her hair (thankfully it had been plaited with in an inch of its life and so stood up... mostly to the investigation). Then, her lips parted slightly in wonderful shock and amazement as she heard a voice, clear as day in her head. Was it the dragon? Was that what a dragon sounded like? Rakka felt a wonderful sensation at the thought that she heard a dragon, though part of her wondered if it was only in her mind, that she was so desperate to understand a dragon that she’d made it up.

The man was standing close enough for her to reach out and touch him now, and she had to fight the urge to do so. Impulsive as she was she could control her actions much better than her words. At his question her eyes widened into nearly full circles. Giving her the appearance of being essentially all eyes with how big they were already. “To the Weyr you mean?” She asked breathlessly. Of course he had to mean the Weyr... her gaze faltered uncertainly for a moment before she squared her shoulders. “Yes.” She answered firmly, wondering if that were too forward. It would be with a holder she thought.

Her father couldn’t object. He had too much difference and respect for the Weyr. And she knew he would be pleased beyond reason if a son were to be searched so... it stood to reason that he would be at least somewhat pleased to have a daughter searched. And she wasn’t an only daughter. Her sister had made, what she had been told, was an excellent match. “I would be honored.” She added, remembering her manners and dropping a passable courtesy to the man. After all he was... she assumed her elder and a Dragonrider. And being respectful was a good thing. Her gaze slipped towards the girl again, then to the blue rider, and then back to B’jin. At a loss for words at the moment, a rare phenomenon indeed.

“Excellent!” B’jin beamed, clapping his hands together when Rakka agreed to come to the Weyr, not bothering to answer her first question as she’d clearly figured it out a moment later. Her curtsy was cute, and B’jin tossed her a cheerful wink when she looked back up at him again. “You’ll need to collect any belongings you wish to bring with you. The Weyr will provide you most basic necessities but a lot of people find they prefer to bring their own stuff.”

He smiled at her again, and tilted his head. “You should also let your family know you’re going. You’ve been Searched for Telgar, but you won’t be locked there and can Stand at any Clutch.” As he spoke, B’jin noticed that a couple of young men had joined them, and he included them in his little speech, smiling warmly at them all. Larrikith and Tybalith had approved them, and Larrikith said there were a couple more that they were umming over.

“You’ll also be able to come back and visit any time! The elder Weyrlings tend to end up with taxi duty, but we’re a friendly bunch,” as a whole, anyway. B’jin knew of more than a couple less friendly dragonriders, but he wasn’t interested in scaring their new candidates away, but rather making sure they all knew they could come home to visit any time they wanted, so long as their Weyrlingmaster agreed to letting them out of the Weyr. Which, mostly they weren’t too fussed about. It was only after the Touching that the Candidates would find themselves chained to the Weyr in anticipation fo the Hatching.

B’jin nodded to himself, and to the small group. “You can bring one bag of stuff, but we can come back at a later date if you forget something.” He spread his hands wide, and grinned broadly. “Go collect your stuff, kids, and meet us back here. Off you go!” B’jin made shooing motions with his hands, and watched the youngsters skitter off, turning to see what R’nd was up to, before checking on D’lyne.
