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.

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.

When you were a drudge big changes were scary. You had such little control over anything, it felt like standing in a heavy wind and hoping you wouldn’t get blown away. So when Kelikki was told she and her siblings were being transferred to a new household (bless the servant head for keeping the family together, if she ever got the chance Kelikki wanted to repay him for it), she was decidedly worried. She knew little about the people she was now to serve. The lady she knew nothing about, not even a name yet. The lord she knew a little, as he’d been fostered at Nabol for a time. He’d left when she was fourteen, but Kelikki remembered Jalazmar as decent enough for a lord. But he was barely a turn older than she, and had plenty of time to change his tune towards servants, as lordlings were wont to do. So Kelikki was worried.

Today she had been sent ahead to Fort Hold as a messenger, to inform Lord Jalazmar of Lord Jimeridan’s gift to him and his new wife, and was then instructed to remain with the lady from that moment onward. By some miracle, and thanks to Lord Jimeridan’s regard for family, she had managed to request her dragonriding brother Fendrel (F’drel now, she really should remember) as her transport. They’d all had a bit of an emotional reunion that morning, before Kelikki couldn’t justify stalling anymore and had to insist she and F’drel leave.

Riding dragonback was a new experience. Fen’s Halomirth apparently wasn’t even particularly big for a dragon, but she was much bigger than any creature Kelikki had ever seen from that close before. Flying, however, was exhilarating, even going between. When they landed, after what felt like both moments and hours, her heart seemed to stay flying in the air even as she slid down from the dragon, legs barely managing to hold her up.

Thankfully, a dragon appearing in the courtyard was attention grabbing and it took little effort for Kelikki to pass on her mission to meet with Lord Jalazmar and his soon-to-be wife. She was led to a side room to wait, F’drel remaining with her as an escort of sorts, until Jalazmar or his lady could be found to come receive the message she carried. Though there were chairs in the room, Kelikki remained standing, too nervous to sit and not wanting to appear as if she felt herself above those she waited on. Fen stayed standing as well, though where she remained still in the center of the room he paced the edges, a visual expression of the nervous energy she felt herself. Brushing out her skirts, making sure she was as presentable as possibly, Kelikki waited.

Jalazmar had spent breakfast with his betrothed, finding he might actually enjoy her company. It was early days still but she was fun to chat with and he found it even more delightful to rile her up a bit with some gentle teasing. He had even found out the day before that he got along fairly well with her beloved cat, Sunshine. So far so good! However, Xyliah was whisked away by some attendents after she was finished eating so she could deal with more wedding preparations. Well, he assumed that was it anyway. It was probably a dress fitting or maybe she did have a lot of say for what the wedding would entail. Jalazmar had been of the opinion it would be a small and simple fair just to get it over and done with and satisfy his father.

He had returned to his rooms while he considered what he could fill his day with. He really did want to roam around the area a bit to find the best tavern for drinks, best place for food, and what the local merchants sold. He had heard Fort and Telgar could be similar in size and mundane things, but they each had their own trends when it came to fashion and indulgences.

He had just made up his mind on his course of action for the day when a knock interrupted him. Jalazmar did his best to hide the bit of confusion he felt at learning his cousin, Lord Jimeridan of Nabol, had sent him a message, but not in paper form. He had sent a woman to bring him a message. He certainly hoped it wasn't the girl he was supposed to marry a few years ago! That might be a tad awkward to explain to Xyliah.

As he entered the room he was shown to, Jalazmar was rather relieved to find he didn't recognize the woman standing there, or even the man pacing around like a caged animal. He wondered if he would recognize someone from ten or so years ago, though. Well, best get his lordly duties out of the way so he could go back to fun and exploring.

"Good day to you both," he greeted cordially before focusing his attention on the woman. "I am Lord Jalazmar. I'm told you have a message for me?"

As soon as someone entered the room Kelikki tensed, and noticed as F’drel did the same, stopping his pacing and coming to stand by her, looking every bit the escort. She was glad for Lord Jalazmar’s introduction — despite having served him a few times during his fostering, Kelikki could barely recognize the man.

“Good day to you as well, my Lord.” She said, curtseying politely. “I do, my Lord. I have been sent with a message from Lord Jimeridan regarding your upcoming wedding. Part of this message is a letter.” Kelikki said, gesturing to F’drel who had dug the missive from the inside pocket of his riding jacket as she spoke. He took a few steps forward and held it out for the lord to take at his discretion. As far as she knew, the letter was simply further personal correspondence that Lord Jimeridan hadn’t felt she needed to learn or were easier to put in writing, as well as confirmation of her words.

“The other part of the message, which I believe is also discussed in the letter, is that Lord Jimeridan’s wedding gift to you, my Lord, and your betrothed is myself and several other drudges from Nabol Hold to assist you in setting up your new household. The others will be sent when you are ready to move into your new home, while I have been instructed to remain with your Lady, if you are agreeable to this, as an additional maid and to help facilitate the move. My Lord Jimeridan remembers your time at Nabol fondly and hopes to make this important life step as smooth and stress free for you as possible, Lord Jalazmar. If you have any questions or further requests of him, Lord Jimeridan asks that you contact him immediately.” She recited, trying to keep her breathing even and not run out of breath with the sheer amount of words she had to say. Kelikki didn’t think she had rushed too much, and her voice was usually clear and audible. “F’drel here,” she continued, again gesturing towards her brother, “Has agreed to bring any response you may have for Lord Jimeridan to Nabol once it is written, if my Lord desires to send a reply today.” Finished with her spiel, Kelikki took a deep, steadying breath. “Thank you, my Lord.”

Jalazmar waited a moment before taking the letter from the dragonrider, hesitating further when he actually took a second to look at the man. He looked vaguely familiar but he couldn’t place the where or why of it and assumed the man had gone to one of the gathers at Telgar Hold and they crossed paths. The letter was flipped back and forth to examine both sides and acknowledged that it was his cousin’s seal. Technically they were second cousins but it was just easier to refer to the man as a cousin; or if he was being his usual teasing self, Jalazmar played on the vast age difference between them and called Jimeridan his uncle.

He waited patiently through the long explanation and he almost felt sorry for the girl for having to recite it for his sake. He supposed it was to show her intelligence and ability to follow orders, which was appreciated, especially if he was now responsible for her. Jalazmar’s first instinct was to send her back with a ‘thanks but it’s all good’ note since he didn’t want to be responsible for more people than he needed to be, but in truth, he had no idea what he was going to do after the wedding. He kind of assumed his father would give him a parcel of land back in High Reaches but it seemed more likely that he was to be shipped off permanently to Fort Hold and expected to set up a household, especially given what he was just told. A nod was given to the girl that he understood and then busied himself with the letter, finding much the same with some added family correspondence and an insistence to assist in getting him started.

Momentarily forgetting the guests, Jalazmar turned back to the door, peeking his head out to catch a servant walking by. “You there, find Lady Xyliah and bring her back here. Inform her that her lord husband-to-be needs her urgently for a most pressing matter.” It really wasn’t urgent or pressing and he knew he could, and should, just make the decision to keep the gift of drudges but it seemed only fair in this matter to have her opinion as well.

Turning back to the messengers, Jalazmar smiled and waved to the tray of cups and a water pitcher. “Please, enjoy some refreshments while we wait for my betrothed to arrive so that I may share the news with her. I’ll also write a reply soon after that, F’drel, was it? I don’t want to keep you from your duties for too long.”

F’drel hated this whole business. For one, he had to deal with Lords again, which he’d managed to avoid since he’d been Searched. Being a greenrider had some perks. Still, going back to his childhood ‘home’ that morning had brought back too many memories he didn’t really want to deal with. Plus, being around Lords just made F’drel twitchy, always having to be ready to jump at the slightest notice. Ugh.

Another thing causing his less-than-stellar mood was his role in handing off his siblings to a mostly unknown Lord. Not that F’drel begrudged Kelikki requesting he escort her as opposed to some random dragonrider she’d never met, but he didn’t have to like it. Seeing his siblings was worth it, but he worried for them. What were their new Lord and Lady going to be like (Knowing the Lord as a child meant just about nothing in F’drel’s opinion. Lords got worse as they aged.)? Would it be worse than if they’d stayed at Nabol? There was no way to know and F’drel didn’t like it. He’d grown used to having at least some control over his own life, and here he was having powerlessness thrown back in his face.

He did his best to be polite and neutral, but he could tell he wasn’t as good at it as he used to be. Where he once would have stood at attention, waiting, much as Kelikki did, today he couldn’t stand still. F’drel managed to still somewhat when the lord came in, flanking his sister to make it clear she wasn’t to be messed with, and even managed to produce the letter without making a single snarky comment.

The lord - Jalazmar’s - pause to study him was disconcerting, as F’drel didn’t know what the man was looking for. Did he have some issue with him? Recognize him from his five years at Nabol? They had met in the past, on several occasions. Jalazmar had been only about a turn off in age from Rinderian, and F’drel had always been Rinderian’s favorite, so he’d been around a bit during Jalazmar’s fostering. Or did he notice how much he resembled Kelikki? She hadn’t mentioned that they were siblings. F’drel wondered about that. Having a dragonrider as a brother, even a greenrider, might give her some protection. Did she think she was protecting his reputation? He hardly had one worth protecting.

When the refreshments were offered, F’drel nodded politely but remained where he was. Kelikki poured a few glasses before taking one herself. F’drel figured her throat was dry after having to give that long winded speech. Hearing his name, F’drel returned his attention to the lord from Kelikki and shook his head.

“It’s no trouble, my Lord.” He said, internally gagging on the title. “It gives me time to help my sister settle in.” F’drel gestured to Kelikki with these words, deciding that he wanted this new Lord of hers to know she was related to a dragonrider. If he could protect her at all, even if from Ista, he wanted to.

Xyliah looked up, pausing in her conversation with Yanzi, as a knock sounded on the main door to her rooms. A delicate frown formed between her eyebrows even as Yanzi made a teasing comment about her husband-to-be Jalazmar stopping by to woo her in the early morning light. Xyliah scowled at her good naturedly as she shooed Yanzi to answer the door, rolling her eyes playfully and breathing out a deep and steadying breath. She certainly hoped it wasn’t Jalazmar! She wasn’t at all prepared – mentally or emotionally! – to deal with the man right that moment; she was much too focused on girlish gossip with Yanzi. Their wedding was just days away, and every time Xyliah thought she had her wild emotions under control, something broke loose! She had spent most of the previous night crying non-stop, and she had no idea why! It was all such a mess!

The wicked smirk on Yanzi’s face when the woman returned told Xyliah that whoever had been at the door was in some way connected to Jalazmar. That was confirmed when her maid relayed the message, and Xyliah frowned in confusion, tilting her head. Her innocent question of what Jalazmar could possibly want her for so early, had Yanzi giggling as she went into great detail of what men wanted so early. So late. All the time. Xyliah was positively mortified as she fled the room and made her way to where the messenger had told Yanzi to have her go. Since she hadn’t been dismissed, Yanzi followed curiously, greatly enjoying Xyliah’s flustered rushing.

Xyliah felt she’d made it to the room where she’d been instructed in good time, but who knew how long the messenger had taken to get to her? Pushing the door open, Xyliah peered in curiously and quickly spotted Jalazmar. Flashing a polite smile – her face was still tinged quite heavily with her blush – Xyliah swept into the room and was about to curtsy to Jalazmar when she spotted the two guests. Her eyebrows arched up slightly, and she took them in with interest as Yanzi snuck in behind her and quietly closed the door.

Turning her gaze from the two people she didn’t know, Xyliah lifted an eyebrow at Jalazmar, wondering what was so urgent but not willing to question him in front of people she didn’t know, or make a fool of herself if something terrible had happened. Maybe someone in his family had had an emergency? Births? Deaths? … What if his father had called off the wedding? Decided she wasn’t good enough for him after all and found someone of a higher rank to marry him like he deserved… Xyliah’s face lost most of its colour, and she glanced back towards the visitors, noticing at last that the man was a dragonrider. It was the steadying hand of Yanzi on her shoulder that had Xyliah remembering who she was, if nothing else, and she took strength from her maid.

“You sent for me, my lord?” she asked, turning her attention back to Jalazmar and keeping her chin up and her voice steady as she waited to find out what was going on.

His sister? Jalazmar took his time in passing his gaze from one sibling to the other, looking for similarities as well as wondering when F’drel was Searched and if that was why he thought the man was familiar. He may have served at Nabol Hold during his time there. Well, good on him for not only being thought worthy of Impressing a dragon, but actually doing so. He was still of the opinion that doing so was an honour, even if it was only to a green. Jalazmar then wondered how often F’drel was able to see his sister and if they had a standing appointment to visit on certain days and if he should continue with it. He likely would, not wanting to keep family apart and the girl – Kelikki as the letter said her name was – wasn’t going to be shackled and kept out of sight. “I’ll be sure to take my time with the letter then, F’drel, so you may see her safely settled.”

Jalazmar smiled as Xyliah entered the room but it turned into a frown when he saw what seemed to be panic fill her eyes and the colour drain from her face. Worried that maybe she was a bit under the weather and would perhaps faint from rushing over so quickly because of his poor choice of words, Jalazmar quickly took one of the glasses of water Kelikki had poured and returned to his betrothed with it. He set it in one hand and settled his hand under her other elbow to keep her steady if needed.

“I hope I didn’t pull you away from anything important,” or even a morning of leisure, if she wasn’t feeling well. “But my cousin Jimeridan, the Lord Holder of Nabol, has sent us quite the wedding gift. He has gifted us several drudges from his household to serve in ours, including this girl here. She is to be part of your personal retinue if you so wish it.”
