Benden is hit with a heavy heatwave in the last week of Month Six, and first week of Month Seven, which carries through to the end of the month. Their weather will begin to cool in the last week of the month, dropping to the low 30s.

Ista Isle is amused by the weaklings of Benden, but at least their heat is dry. Benden is muggy and riddled with heavy thunderstorms and downpours.

North: Late Spring | South: Late Autumn
9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C

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.

-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.

K’tir climbed up Ghaeth purely on muscle memory. It hadn’t been the first time he’d done it since losing his vision but it was the first time they were going on a small trip from ledge to Lower Bowl. He was thankful for the years of experience of mounting and dismounting his dragon and that it still felt normal to do and to sit atop the gentle beast. The other times he had sat there, the tears fell silently and neither of them spoke. It was still a lot to process from the attack, to his vision, and now the loss of his daughter. Ghaeth was the only thing keeping him somewhat sane and continuing on. Kajiran truly deserved a better father than the sorry excuse of a man he had become. But that was how Ghaeth had kept him from doing something stupid. He still had a child to care for and be a role model for.

Those thoughts were always with him anymore. If he wasn’t wallowing in self-pity, he was trying to keep positive for his son. The positivity was hard to do most days and it was why they were going for a brief glide before sitting out in the Bowl to soak up some sun. That was easy enough to do on their ledge but K’tir hadn’t left their weyr all that much since returning from the infirmary months earlier. It would do to get out and maybe see people… except he couldn’t see them, could he?

The usual anger and pity swelled but K’tir tried not to let it consume him this time as Ghaeth landed gently on the ground. He slid down the dragon’s side and stumbled a little as he didn’t pay enough attention to the timing and where the ground would be. He kept his balance but frowned at the mistake as he took a few steps away from Ghaeth. He glanced around, trying as always to find out if he could see anything. Why he thought being in a new location would change how he could vaguely make out white shapes of larger objects or something very close to him into something real was just another way to torture himself but he still did it.

And he still saw nothing but the vaguely dragon-shaped blob behind him. With a sigh, he sat down where he stood and after a moment laid on his back to stare up at the bright sky. “Don’t stare at the sun… you’ll go blind,” he mumbled with a bitter laugh.

Ghaeth and K'tir are out sunning in the bowl. Je'ler grunted softly in acknowledgement as he finished sorting his bottles. He'd been meaning to see the brownrider after the whole incident, but he'd wanted to give the man space to recover and heal. And then the murders and attacks had continued and things had grown even more insane and Je'ler had tried to focus more on just making his wine and trying to keep himself out of trouble.

And then there was news of the gold candidates getting poisoned and word on the grapevine was that K'tir's daughter had been in that bunch and hadn't recovered. So Je'ler had delayed trying to check on him even more, because what could he say? He'd seen how his father had been affected by his mom's death, he couldn't imagine how it would feel to lose a child that he was close to.

Je'ler did know booze though, and he knew about what K'tir liked, so he'd been working on a new blend that he thought would be appreciated. He got up and grabbed the wineskin that he'd set aside specifically for the brownrider and tucked it away in his bag before heading out to the ledge where Isper was already waiting.

It was a quick glide down before he was hopping off and Isperinath paced around to cuddle in against Ghaeth's side, giving him a soft chirp in greeting. Je'ler cleared his throat and said, "Hey, figured you could use something so I brought you some wine." He plopped down to sit next to K'tir, pulling the wineskin out of his bag and gently nudging the man's arm with it. "I think you'll like it. It's a blend, mostly red, little bit of white, some spice and fruit." He paused a moment, unsure of what else to say really before just asking, "So how are you holding up?"

Ghaeth’s happy rumble and greeting didn’t tell K’tir much. His dragon loved everyone, though he did have some favourites; not that it made cutting down the list any easier. When the throat clearing came, K’tir still couldn’t tell who it was since he had done his best to turn away most well-wishers and considered friends since the attack on himself. But the mention of wine made everything click together and the voice was suddenly familiar.

“Wine was always appreciated before and more so now,” K’tir managed a small smile in an attempt to convey he appreciated the gesture and maybe warn that he wouldn’t be his usual self. Gone were the days of being relaxed and simply enjoying life and all the delights it held. He took the wine, giving one slight nod in gratitude for the way Je’ler passed it to him. K’tir didn’t have to ask for it, hold out his hand and wait, or fumble around for the offering. It was appreciated how Je’ler wasn’t making anything more awkward than it already was.

“Your spiced blends always end up at the top of my list for your creations,” K’tir agreed, a hand running over the wineskin. It was an object he was familiar enough with that he knew one of the few colours it would be and fingers traced along the mouth currently sealed but would be easily opened later. Fuck it, why wait? He had the vintner there with him and it would be rude to make Je’ler wait for his verdict so he removed the cap and carefully brought it to his mouth. Bringing it to his mouth was a slow process. In the past, he could grab his mug and take a drink without paying much attention and it was muscle memory now that guided him but a few times since returning home, K’tir had smacked his teeth on the edge of a glass and had definitely spilt the contents here and there as well.

A cautious tilt of the wineskin was taken when he gently bumped the opening to his mouth and K’tir waited to only receive that little bit and not a face full that would run down his chin and chest. It was a smooth success and the wine even more so. K’tir took a moment to hold a sip in his mouth, swishing it around like Je’ler had told him was an appropriate way to get all the levels of the wine and then nodded with a swallow. “You’re right. You nailed this blend and I think it might be my second favourite. The one after our Flight is still top tier, however.” Maybe that was more due to the circumstances and his euphoric mood but K’tir had definitely appreciated that one.

After capping the wineskin once more, K’tir fiddled with it and gave a sigh. He couldn’t be mad at the question since it was something a friend would ask. He even appreciated someone wanted to check in with him but it was a reminder that the more he went out or let people in, the more he would hear various forms of that question. “I’m… well enough. I’m coming to terms with the Healers being right about my vision never returning and Ka-” K’tir struggled to say his daughter’s name and shook his head. “I’m not ready to talk about Katiryn.”

At least the brownrider was still feeling up to wine, it was a good sign as far as Je'ler was concerned. Wine was one of those stable things, kept all the loose threads held together even when things were rough. And things had certainly been rough for K'tir as far as he could tell. Going blind, losing his daughter...

Je'ler decided to flop down himself next to the man to just squint up at the sky. "At least it's nice and warm. So you still like that other one huh? Maybe I'll have to make another batch of it then. You'll have to test it for me to make sure it's still up to snuff, tastes the same and all that." He didn't really need a taste tester, he had Isper and his own tongue to go by after all, but it could be fun to have someone else share an opinion.

Though that did make him think of another potential taster. "Huh... does Ghaeth drink? Isper helps me taste things sometimes, I just pour her a bowl... but I never really thought about other riders sharing with their dragons."

Isperinath let out a soft pleased grumble that her rider had thought of her and her companion, and she nuzzled fondly against the brown as she shifted her weight slightly to get more comfortable. It seemed like Je'ler was settling in for a proper visit instead of just rushing to leave, so she could relax a bit. Maybe it was his dragon's mood slipping through, but it made the greenrider a bit more curious about the bond between the brown pair. "Is he able to help you out any with the blindness at all? Even if he doesn't at least you have a good and reliable boy."

“Taste-testing should be something I’m still useful for.” In fact, that would probably be the best job for him since the main healer he’d been dealing with told him how his other senses would heighten over time. K’tir wasn’t so sure he wanted to hear people whispering about him across the room but food and drink he already enjoyed becoming euphoric seemed promising.

K’tir quirked his head to the side at the question about Ghaeth drinking. Did people really let their dragons have alcohol? “Ghaeth is from the first clutch after the plague. Everyone was very… particular about how they were treated and how we were trained. Giving the dragons wine wasn’t encouraged and the inventory supply sucked before you appeared anyway.” Besides, Ghaeth had already given everyone heart attacks when he started showing his adult hide and his one leg was nearly white. Everyone worried he was infected with something before finally being cleared. No way did K’tir want to scare anyone further by letting the gentle beast have wine. His luck would have Ghaeth belching fire without having even chewed stone.

He took another sip of the wine, unable to help himself when it was so tasty and just right there. It was capped once more and set down almost out of reach to help dissuade him from taking more. “Ghaeth is the best boy and that’s the theory. When I’m near him I can share his vision, though it’s still disorientating to see over my shoulder. But he can’t help me navigate places within the walls.” He’d only tried the slow and embarrassing stroll down to the bathing rooms twice as he didn’t have his own such facilities in his weyr. Since those attempts, K’tir was able to get drudges to bring up buckets of hot water so he could freshen up with some of his dignity still intact.

Je'ler let out a soft chuckle. "Well you're welcome to taste as much wine as I have. I've got a few barrels that should be ready to tap in a couple of weeks. One of those is another blend, the other two are a bit more traditional, just a merlot and a chardonnay that should be easy enough to drink. You might find them boring, but who knows." He resisted the urge to reach over and grab the wineskin back for another sip, it was a gift after all and he had more than enough for himself.

The mention of Ghaeth's clutch brought back memories, and Je'ler couldn't help but feel a pang of guilt for his earlier treatment of Isper. "Yeah... yeah they sure were particular. I didn't really pay attention to any of that though, at least not at first when I got Isper. I got better though, about most things." It had only taken his precious lady getting terribly sick after gorging herself. He didn't bring up that he let her taste his wine, not wanting to feel even worse about it. He generally justified that as a way to try to help her work up an appetite for real meals and to keep her entertained and feeling involved but... well he was sure not everyone would see it that way.

And he didn't want to make this visit about him anyway. "I bet you'll get used to it and figure it out eventually. Not sure if a firelizard would help. Maybe get one to help nudge you in the direction you need to know, alert you to shit you might trip on... though you'd have to get it trained in the first place I guess and I have no idea how to do that. If you get any ideas you think I could help with, let me know."

"I have...had... two firelizards. I Impressed them soon after their rediscovery and the kids were too little for their own. I let the kids name them," K'tir's smile was one of fond memories but his brows slowly furrowed with pain at Katiryn's death. But he would never forget how excited they were with calling out the names they picked, especially little Kajiran's 'Bean!' that made them all chuckle.

"Cocoa Bean is still around and still usually with my son but Dewdrop loved Katiryn and I'm not sure if she went feral or went between from heartbreak. I haven't seen her since we received the news." He shut his eyes from habit. It wasn't like he was shutting out the world or the demons that lived in his head by doing so. He just had to focus on the topic, nothing else. His eyes were easier to deal with now that something worse had happened.

"I'm not sure how much use Beanie would be. Short attention spans and a lighter bond than with a dragon. But it's worth a shot. I have to find a way to easily make it to the wine and various lovers, after all." He attempted a smile and was shocked at how it felt right to tease and joke around a bit.

That also reminded him how lonely he had become. It was his own fault with how he kept pushing people away as he tried to deal with everything but perhaps it was time to slowly let some people back in. "If you don't have anything better to do, I wouldn't be opposed to someone relaxing in the sun with me. Constant talking not even needed if we're not feeling it." Just some companionship would be nice.

"Oh." Je'ler wasn't sure what to say at first, knowing that the flitters had been the kids' and that one of them... well, no need to dwell on that. He still had one. "Eh, maybe Bean will get the job done. Even if it's only a little helpful, it's something you know? And heh, yeah, you do need to figure out how to get to the wine and the booty." At least there was a smile, a bit of light hearted humor there. It was a good sign.

With a small nudge from his elbow, Je'ler laughed and added, "Ghaeth can help you get to my weyr, Isper always likes the company, and I've got plenty of wine for you. And a comfy enough bed when the mood strikes." K'tir was fun to have around, and he didn't have to see to keep that sort of entertainment up.

He could feel Isperinath's approval, but he decided against picking a fight or assuring her that this wasn't like that. Instead Je'ler just settled on trying to be there for a friend. K'tir didn't need to deal with or even know about the petty arguments he had with the green. Some company though, he could do that. "Yeah, I'm fine with hanging out and lounging in the sun with you. And let me know if you want me to lounge in the sun again some other time too. I'm not going anywhere."
