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.

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.

Stepping out of the carriage with the assistance of one of the footmen, Xyliah looked up at the sprawling building that was the centre of Fort Hold, and her new home – for the time being. She had been to the Hold in the past, though when she was younger, for events and major Gathers – she remembered vividly the nights spent dancing, but she could not remember much else. Those times, of course, she had been in the company of her entire family. Now, however, as the chilly breeze whispered past her and made her curls flutter around her face, Xyliah was exceedingly aware of how alone she was.
 
Not for long, though! She knew her betrothed would be arriving within a few weeks, if only because they were scheduled to be married by the end of the fourth month. She was not sure what day, as it had not been confirmed to her, but she was still excited if a little anxious. She had always dreamed of a big, beautiful and elegant wedding, but was under no illusions to how the one she was entering would happen. It would likely be a private affair, with her family and his, and of course the Lord and future Lady of Fort in attendance. Her mother had had a gown crafted for her, and it was exceedingly beautiful and cut to fit perfectly; Xyliah had it in her bags, carefully packed away. She was saddened that they were apparently going to be living somewhere in Fort, and not moving to his home Hold, but she was pleased that she would be so close to her own family, if a little confused by the politics behind their future living arrangements.
 
Xyliah shifted her gaze as the Head Steward introduced himself and indicated that she should follow him to her living quarters. Xyliah did so, her mind a million miles away as she took in the extravagant Hold. High Hill Hold, while a minor Holding, she knew from her lessons with the Harpers that it is one of the biggest, with a large population and an abundance of livestock, fruits and vegetables. They have good trade with many of the smaller minor holds, as well as Fort itself. Her family have always been wealthy, and Xyliah knew she was used to a certain amount of spoiling. The unknowing part of what her life would be after marrying Jalazmar was causing her no small amount of worry, and Xyliah sighed as she was bowed to by the Steward, before he excused himself. She let herself into the rooms that were to be hers, looking around in delight; the rooms were beautifully furnished, large, and more than adequate for her rank. She was thrilled.
 
She waited until her baggage had arrived, and been stowed to one side of the room before making her way to the private bathing room attached, and smiling in delight at the steaming water already drawn and filled with scented oils. Laughing happily to herself, Xyliah stripped and climbed in, relaxing into the warm embrace of the silky water, and letting the grime of her travels wash away. Her hair was scrubbed, the curls falling out with the weight of the water, before tying it up messily out of the way so she could continue to laze in the water until it was too cool to be comfortable any more. That was when she climbed out, wrapping herself in a fuzzy towel and going in search of an appropriate dress to wear to greet the Lord of Fort before dinner.
 
Fully clothed and delightfully clean, Xyliah exited her rooms, politely claiming the attention of a maid and getting the woman to show her the way to the Lord’s rooms, where she politely knocked on the heavy wooden door. When she was called to enter, Xyliah did so, smiling in thanks to the maid before walking confidently to where Lord Therion was. Reaching him, she dropped into a deep curtsey. “Greetings, Lord Therion! I wish to thank you for your kind generosity!” Rising, she met his eye confidently and smiled warmly, folding her hands together before her.

The dark polished surface of Therion's large desk reflected the bronze form of Chanson, who sat upon it, watching his master's quill move back and forth.  The Lord Holder looked up and smiled at him before turning his attention back to his writing.  He'd had dinner with two of his minor holders who had  made some interesting proposals, and he didn't want to forget what they had said before he had a chance to ponder their suggestions.  

The evening was quiet and a soft breeze wafted through the open window.  During the day, he could hardly think with all the hammering and banging and shouting echoing through the caverns of the Hold.  But unfortunately, the redecorating of his private chambers was necessary due to his upcoming marriage.  He didn't want Kaylira to be intimidated by reminders of the woman who had shared his life since before she had even been born.  

All traces of his beloved Alstrina had been removed from not only his rooms but the entire Hold.  It almost seemed as if he was trying to erase her existence, which was what his daughter had accused him of.  However, it was not like that at all.  She would always live on within his heart.  But he was beginning a new phase in his life and he wanted his new wife to be happy.

He was letting Kaylira and his mother handle the renovations.  Therion had not even checked on the progress, preferring to wait until everything was done.  He generally didn't like surprises, but in this case, he was content to let his betrothed do as she wished without his interference.  His mother would keep her in check and give her advice.  It was important that Kaylira feel like she belonged in what would soon be her new home.

Therion was sleeping in one of the guest rooms now in an area that was reserved for the Lords of the other major Holds whenever they had business with him.  In another part of the Hold, three more guest rooms were currently in use, two by the holders he had dined with and one by the woman who would be marrying the youngest son of the Lord of High Reaches at the end of next month, a match that he had suggested himself.

A knock on the door to his anteroom brought him out of his thoughts and he heard his manservant open it.  A moment later, he stepped into Therion's office and informed him that Xyliah was here to see him.  He hadn't expected to meet her until breakfast the following morning, but he told the servant to send her in.  The Lord Holder remained seated as she entered, and he smiled politely at her effusive greeting.  “You are most welcome,” he replied.  “I trust that you find your accommodations satisfactory?”

“Oh, yes!” Xyliah responded, eyes wide as she tried valiantly not to gush about how amazing the rooms were; they were so much more beautiful than she was likely entitled to, given her rank compared to the other guests Lord Therion surely had keeping him company! Despite that, Xyliah did not want to be moved to lesser rooms, because that would be such a buzzkill after seeing the ones she had been assigned! So she smiled, curtsying again.

Standing up again, Xyliah folded her hands again, and took a deep breath, calming herself as she went over what it was she wanted to say, before speaking the words. She was a good public speaker, but that didn’t mean she was immune to nerves when speaking about things! “I want thank you, my Lord, for your generosity and the honour you are showing myself and my family, by hosting my wedding to Jalazmar of High Reaches,” oh, she was trembling as she spoke the words though her voice was clear and steady. His name rolled off her tongue with an ease that betrayed how often she’d mumbled it as she gossiped with her maid or daydreamed about what kind of a man he was…

She was so excited, but so nervous about who Jalazmar was, and how he would look and behave and what he was like! Would he be handsome? Would he be intelligent? Would he be nice? Would they fall in love..? She hoped so! She knew so little about him, and had never met him or his family; her own simply wasn’t important enough outside of the Fort boundaries to attract the attention of a major Lord or his sons… How she’d been put on their radar, she didn’t know. Xyliah was uncomfortably aware of the fact that she knew nothing about the man she was marrying. She hoped he wasn’t a scoundrel!

Resisting the urge to curtsy again – she knew personally that too much curtsying could be as much of an annoyance as someone who didn’t pay heed to rank at all – Xyliah licked her lips and twined her fingers together, lest she start playing with her hair. She desperately wanted to ask after Kaylira, now she’d shown her thanks, but was worried about being scolded or that the other young woman wouldn’t be at the Hold. Deciding to wait until either Lord Therion brought her up, or she was dismissed to query about her friend, Xyliah took to subtly examining the office she was standing in.

Therion couldn't help but smile at the young lady's enthusiasm.  She reminded him a bit of Kaylira with  those dark unruly curls.  The main reason he had suggested a match between this girl and the son of the Lord of High Reaches, and had offered to allow them to live at Fort, was because Xyliah was one of Kaylira's best friends.  He wanted her to have familiar faces around her so she wouldn't be too homesick.  He had arranged for another of her good friends, a Journeyman Harper, to be posted to the Hold as well.

While she appeared a bit nervous, she seemed to be taking her betrothal to a man she had never met rather well.  Perhaps like the daughters of the major Holds, she had been raised to accept her duty to marry whomever her father chose for her.  Some of his minor holders held to the old traditions while others allowed their children to marry for love.  His own daughter Nathera didn't meet her husband until their wedding day, and the two of them were now quite happy together.  

Asterie was a different story altogether.  Therion had been angry at first when she had told him that she was pregnant by the son of one of his holders, but how could he condemn her for it when she had been conceived from an illicit affair that he had carried on with the woman he had later married?  Now Asterie was back at the Hold, widowed and childless.  After his own wedding was over, he would actively look for another husband for her, whether she wished to be married again or not.

He nodded graciously as Xyliah thanked him.  “It is my pleasure to assist a friend of my betrothed. Kaylira has spoken quite highly of you.  She should be here in a few days and I'm sure she will be thrilled to see you again.  You'll need to get with my mother to find out the exact date she'll be here. The two of them are planning our wedding together as well as redecorating some of the rooms in the Hold.”

Much as Therion assumed, Xyliah had never considered the prospect of marrying anyone but a man her father picked out for her. She had watched her elder siblings being paired off and married when they were in their mid-teens, much like she had found herself to be. Of course, being the youngest daughter of a Minor Lord, Xyliah had never considered she might be matched with the son of a Major Hold, even if he was the youngest son! She was a little bit enchanted with the fact that she’d outrank her elder siblings once the wedding was finalised!

“She’s a truly wonderful friend,” Xyliah replied, smiling brightly. She was pleased that Kaylira had spoken well of her; it was always nice to know that one was treasured by their friends, and while Xyliah hadn’t been raised in the cut-throat community of a major hold, she did know what it was like to have backstabbing ‘friends’. It was nice to have someone who was genuine! Sometimes Xyliah wasn’t even sure her own maid – who had been with her since they were both children – actually liked her! (She did know she loved her, though, so there was that. But love hardly equated to liking. That was okay though – sometimes she didn’t like her maid, either.)

Xyliah pouted slightly when Therion informed her that Kaylira wasn’t actually at the hold presently, but then she smiled easily when he continued. “Thank you, I will.” With that decided, Xyliah smiled and promised herself that she would not only find the woman in question to ask about Kaylira, but also to snoop through the redecorating. “May I be excused, my lord?” Xyliah asked quietly after a polite pause. It had been a long day, and she was more than ready to find out just how comfortable the large bed in her assigned rooms would be!

Therion nodded at Xyliah's praise of his future wife.  He had not yet told Kaylira of the arrangements he had made so that one of her friends could live close to her.  Unless Xyliah had mentioned it, or another member of her family was aware of it, she would be surprised when she visited next and found her here.  Maybe he would get the chance to tell her himself unless business called him away, as it invariably did these days.  

Kaylira had been at the Hold several times and he had been too busy even to say hello.  He hoped that she didn't think he was ignoring her.  That was certainly not his intention, but she might as well become accustomed to the fact that he had duties and responsibilities and that his Hold would always come first with him.  It had been different with Alstrina, but he didn't think he would ever be able to love Kaylira as much as he had loved his first wife.

Perhaps Jalazmar would have more time to spend with his own wife.  Therion was willing to give him a position at the Hold or set the newlyweds up in their own cothold … he had several that were currently vacant … but when he arrived, he would be free to do whatever he wished.  Therion hoped he was a kind young man, for if he heard that he was mistreating his wife, he would feel the brunt of the Lord Holder's wrath.  Cruelty was not tolerated at Fort Hold.

Xyliah asked to be excused and Therion nodded again.  “Yes, of course.  You must be tired after your journey.”
