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!

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.

He'd lost another gold. That would have been headache enough were it not for the other casualties and the splitting pain already racking S'far's skull. He'd been unconscious for over a day since he stole that muffin from Mulrissa's weyr when he stopped in to look for her. After that he'd been drifting in and out, though it looked like he'd tried scribbling something in his journal during one of his lucid moments. He frowned at the words and couldn't help but agree with himself, even if he was feeling well enough to know better than to say it aloud. Something had to be done about all of this.

During one of his clearer headed moments he'd checked in on his bronze apprentices, or more accurately had them brought to him in the infirmary so that he could question them, check to make sure that things were handled, and to order them to scour the Weyr for clues as well as check in with the other Weyrs.

None of this looked good and he had half a mind to climb out of his bed and get back to work.

Except just like every time before, when he tried to stand his hands trembled, the headache got worse and his eye wouldn't stop twitching. At least it all settled down more quickly than last time once he gave up and leaned back against his pile of pillows. Rest. I have been trying to help keep an eye on things for you, making sure it is all done as properly as it can be. There was just the slightest hint of worry still left in the dragon's voice, but more profound was the relief. S'far sighed, grumbling softly in complaint aloud before responding to his old man. You know it will take more than a muffin to kill me. And speaking of muffins... tell Coroth I want to speak with C'dhin. Just a few questions. Shouldn't you leave that to one of your apprentices? I'm bed ridden, not dead. I can talk and listen. I've been staying awake for long enough today that I'm sure I can manage. He could tell that the dragon wanted to argue with him more, but instead Urudith did as he was told, relaying the message.

C'dhin had taken to staying in his weyr. Enough people were talking about him as a suspect that he decided he didn't need to go anywhere. He could feed himself and while he would have liked to ask for a bit more flour, he also suspected that no one would give him anything right now. No one was going to eat anything he made anyway. So he was rifling through his supplies, planning out meals for the next several days.

Urudith is a lovely dragon, you know.

"Uh-huh," C'dhin gave a non-committal agreement as he poked around his shelves for the right spice to go with his dinner idea. He had never spoken with the Weyrleader's dragon but he supposed one had to be nice in some form or another if they were going to help oversee everyone. Why Coroth was currently bothering the bronze was odd, though. Wasn't S'far one of the victims currently recovering?

He is and he wants to see you.

The small jar slipped from his fingers and shattered on the stone floor. "Shit!" It seemed the most eloquent response for the lost spice and for the request. It was the one thing he feared--the request, not the spice loss though that sucked a lot as well since it wasn't in season in the north.

"Do you think you could tell him I'm busy and can't make it?"

Don't be a baby. You're innocent, aren't you? Go prove it.

C'dhin nodded. He was pretty certain he was innocent but still dragged his feet as he headed out to the ledge where Coroth brought him down to the Lower Bowl and the entry to the infirmary. He stood beside his dragon staring at the entrance for too long if the nudging by a green head was anything to go by. Fine, you pushy beast. C'dhin gave Coroth a pat to her nose and a quick scritch to an eyeridge before he headed inside and glanced around for where S'far was being kept.

"You wanted to see me, Weyrleader?" C'dhin tried to seem confident and innocent but he felt like shit and he suspected looked like it as well.

Coroth and C'dhin just arrived. The words startled S'far back awake from his lazy doze, and he grumped at a passing healer's assistant for another pillow so that he could sit more upright. Did it look like he was lounging against a ridiculous plush throne? Yes. Did he care? No. The pounding in his head was rhythmic but blessedly dull for the moment, and his hands only trembled a little as he took a sip of his water.

S'far nodded as the greenrider came into view, beckoning him closer. "Yes, I did. Come on now, you don't have to be s'far away. Besides I'm sure you'd prefer to have this be a quieter conversation." He tilted his head a moment as he studied C'dhin. He didn't think that the greenrider had done the poisonings, didn't really think the man was capable of that sort of malice, but it was possible he was involved somehow, even if unintentionally.

"I just have a few questions, C'dhin. Have you baked any large muffin orders for anyone recently? Taught the recipe to anyone? It was..." S'far frowned as he tried to remember the muffin itself. "It reminded me of your hangover muffins, but maybe not quite? Is there anyone you've pissed off lately? A rival baker trying to throw additional heat in your kitchen?"

It was something that S'far hadn't considered until that moment, that maybe the muffins were part of an effort to frame the greenrider. It didn't seem likely, he was having a difficult time imagining C'dhin with enemies, but if there was something maybe it could help point to whoever the killer was.

C'dhin stared at the Weyrleader. Did he just use his own name as a pun? Did Urudith share in the same odd sense of humour and that was how the man ended up with that honorific to begin with? He really wanted to ask but there was a lot more pressing issues at hand, though he still couldn't help himself when he replied with, "S'close enough if I'm being honest." He winced as soon as he said it but took a few steps closer. It didn't really matter if they were overheard and it was probably better that they were so maybe his name would be cleared quicker.

"No muffin orders. Usually people want cookies or if it's a special occasion they ask for a cake. I normally have the hangover muffins on hand since they're so popular." It was honestly his quickest and easiest way to make marks. People paid for the cakes but the muffins were magical to many that liked to drink and came back regularly to help them get through the day when they forgot they had plans. It was extremely worrying that S'far agreed that they tasted like one of his specialties.

"I created the recipe back in Katila. Drinking was what many did to pass the time and it wasn't always good booze so some help was needed." He thought for a moment, trying to remember who he gave the recipe to. It had been so long since he created it but a few people had managed to swindle the secret out of him. "A couple of fellow Stolen were trusted with the secret back in Katila after I Impressed since it was hard to bake in weyrlinghood but I can't remember who." That wasn't going to help his case. Would it have been better if he just picked a name and shifted blame? Of course not. That person would say you're lying and now you're in more trouble. Stick with the facts you know.

He scrunched his nose and mouth as he thought about the more recent time. "When Fort and Ista opened, I gave it to a few Healers that said they were interested in relocating and would love the extra help my spice combination provided. But I didn't pay that much attention to names. I may have written it down in a journal, though." He really should at least recall names of people he shared secrets with. But that was what cooking journals were for. Noting recipes, changes, ideas, and who he shared one with. He'd just have to dig through the pile and find notes from years ago. Sure. No problem.

S'far rubbed his temples, hoping it would ease his headache a bit more and finding those hopes quickly dashed. "Mostly cookies... well that doesn't help us... I think. you can't turn a cookie into a muffin. Maybe a cake though." He looked up at C'dhin's face and frowned. "Well, just let me know if any of my rambling sounds half baked to you. You're the expert. Can you even think of anyone who you would consider capable of doing anything like this?"

That was the biggest problem Sfar was having so far. Trying to think of anyone with a motive enough to target so many. Maybe it was a Holder, unsatisfied with the tithing to the Weyrs and scoffing at the idea of Thread. A healer certainly didn't make any sense, and neither did the idea that it was one of the stolen. That was a long time to hold a grudge, and even then, by now they would have either Impressed or returned to their old homes and old lives.

"If you can think of anything at all, anyone who stands out or any odd thing, maybe someone broke into your weyr and stole your recipes? Either way, if anything comes to mind let me know." S'far sighed as he added, "And I would recommend staying within Telgar Weyr for now. Do you think, if I managed to get a piece of muffin to you, that you'd be able to tell us anything about it? Some sort of... bakery science?"

C’dhin shook his head. He certainly didn’t hang out with anyone capable of mass-murder—or regular murder. V’ler had a glare that held potential but so far the bluerider had refrained and shown mercy. He couldn’t think of anyone that held a grudge against him either. “I’m sorry, sir. I’m… well, I’m kind of useless when it comes to this sort of thing. I’m really only known for my baking with the occasional losing at card games. I don’t leave my weyr much and I don’t have many friends so I hope I don’t have enemies but I guess I wouldn’t know if I did. I get caught up in my experiments and tune a lot out.” He gave a nervous laugh and rubbed the back of his neck.

His shoulders slumped and he nodded as he was essentially grounded. Although, like he said, he didn’t really go anywhere. Sometimes a trip to a Hold to find a missing ingredient but his closest friends were all in Telgar Weyr now so he had less reason to travel now. But at the idea of doing some baking science C’dhin laughed and shook his head. “If you want a roommate, sure. I taste test someone else’s creation and try to discern what ingredients were used and then I start messing around with measurements as I recreate it. And even if I can taste poison, I don’t know what each one tastes like to know what was used.” He stood now with a finger tapping his chin in thought. He’d have to taste the muffin, dissect each flavour, pinpoint anything off about it, and then sample poisons to compare. That didn’t sound fun but maybe in small and controlled doses it was possible?

“I suppose I could at least determine their skill if I saw how it looked and the consistency. Not that it would really help us find who baked them. Hm.” C’dhin had no idea how to help or prove it wasn’t actually him. He also didn’t like the idea that someone broke in and stole a recipe he was known for. Was he really so hated? His frown deepened and he was now itching to get home and go through his journals. “May I be excused, Weyrleader? I should start looking through my old logs for names and if anything was taken or seems wrong.”

Did you really think that questioning a baker would be useful? S'far sighed and gently rubbed his eyes. I thought it would be worthwhile at least. I still don't have any reason to suspect C'dhin at least. Nothing he said has given me any cause for alarm. Besides, old man, it's not like we had anything to lose by talking to him. Fair enough. Coroth seems convinced of his innocence as well. As far as the bronze was concerned that should have been enough, but S'far was glad that he'd taken the time to question the greenrider anyway.

"Really, there's no need to taste the muffins yourself, C'dhin... hm. That's an idea. Taste testers..." he reached over to grab his notebook, scribbling down the idea for him to pursue later on. If he could find some drudges who wanted extra pay in exchange for a bit of risk, then that could at least provide some sort of a buffer to keep people a bit safer.

He glanced back up at C'dhin, tilting his head at the other idea. "I'm not sure enough pieces of muffin survived for that sort of check. Mostly crumbs, I left part of the base of mine alone... only the tops are good, you know." S'far tried to think if there was anything else he could ask the baker but nothing was coming to mind really. "You may go, C'dhin. Let me know if you find anything."

S'far drummed his fingers on his lap as he tried to think, but the headache was picking back up. At least he had some notes, he had some sort of idea to try. For now he could go back to sleep and maybe when he woke there would be better news or more ideas.
