Latest Updates

2023/08/04 Hello loves! While I haven't been writing, I have been working on updating some issues that have been hanging around on the layout! The Character change box is now at the bottom of the page, beside the up/down arrows! Green and Gold dragon flight dates have been shifted to the bottom of the page, where the (useless!) discord widget was located. Where the dragon flights were in the header, is now replaced by a Monthly Event box! This will be updated at the start of each month, with a fun mini-event you can take part in, if you want to! Thistle!

Monthly Event
Details: Link

Welcome to the Month of Lovetm! This month's Monthly Event is all about Romance, whether it is asking someone out on a date, or getting sweaty between the sheets! Anything and everything counts, if it even looks sideways like it could be related to Valentine Day -- including lover's spats, or breaking up, Flights Wins (or Flight Losses!). Honestly, this month has a huge opportunity for interpertation, so go wild!

Details: Link

Ahh, the fresh snow, the crisp air, the naked trees... welcome to Winter! Or, just the Colder Months for those in the more Northern Weyrs, while Ista is just... not as hot. But it is time to enjoy the end of the Turn, so folks should get together, spend some time gossiping, and drinking Hot Chocolate (alcohol and marshmallows opional)... does Pern even have marshmallows????? (they do now!)

Details: Link

Feel like bitching? Wanna take part in a brawl? Or bet on someone? Take part in Brawls and Bitching this month! Boo-yeah!

Partake this month by going fishing... or anything that occurs while fishing, or dealing with fish!

Female Dragonriders
Women dragonriders across Pern


Due largely to the misogynistic nature of the Pernese, female riders on chromatic dragons are incredibly rare, and frowned upon by the majority of the Pernese - even other women. As such, being a female on chromatic is not for the faint hearted.
Because of this Pern-wide bias against women being on green and blue dragons, they are never Searched from Holds, Halls or outskirts for Impression to green or blue; indeed, women from outside the Weyr have such a strong running statistic to Impress gold, that they are freely Searched for that honour. Meanwhile, what women do make it onto the sands to Impress for green or blue are all Weyrbrats; believed to be of hardier stuff than their softer counterparts from outside the Weyr, most of those who Impress green or blue have been raised in the Weyr, or, in the case of Katila, raised in the Southern continent where hardiness was a requirement for survivial.

How many may I have?

A player may START with no more than:
1 goldrider
2 female greenriders*


*Allowing that there are available femnale greenriders for adoption. Additionally, Please note, a Players are strongly discouraged to kill off a gold or female chromatic rider with the intention of applying with a new one; should a Player choose to kill or drop an aforementioned female rider, they will need to wait no less than 6 months before applying with a new one. This is especially important as there is a Pern-wide limit of 25 female riders, and a maximum of 10 female blueriders.

Female blueriders may only be obtained through IC Impression as they are rare, served on a first-come basis. As a result of this, all Players who intend to Impress a female character to either green or blue must let the Team know via DM/PM upon acceptance of the character, so we can save your Impression slot. This is because once the cap is reached, no more will Impress until a previous one dies. Non-Weyrfolk may not Stands Impress for a blue.


Riding gold is considered the highest of honours, even by the Hold- and Hallfolk who would otherwise consider dragonriders a bane on their existance; the rank is considered in line with marrying a Lord Holder, and becoming Lady of a large and rich heritage. The fact that goldriders have been reduced to little more than arm candy by their misogynistic dragonrider brethren is of little coincidence to the Hold and Hallfolk, and may actually bring many fathers no small amount of relief as they would hate for their daughter to be that woman to step outside of her expected roles.

That is not to say goldriders have no responsibility attached to their rank. They have quite the pile, really. Responsible for care of their dragon comes with the highest priority, but they are also required to keep charge of their younger goldriding compaions and further their education; a goldrider should also always be available for the gold Candidates to seek an audience with.
