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.

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.

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.

Ulliendis had planned on spending the rest of the day collecting pity for the injury he received on the Sands and ending the night in someone’s comfortable bed. But before he could leave the Hatching Grounds, he spotted a face he hadn’t seen in a while and frowned at it. Why was Gangleri at the Weyr? And who was he with? Ulliendis didn’t recognise the pretty woman his old teacher had linked arms with but a lot could change in the time he’d been away.

But that mystery was secondary yet also in the way of finding out why Gangleri was around. Ulliendis did his best to linger without looking too obvious as he chatted up others and played up his injury that really didn’t bother him until it seemed clear Gangleri would stay for all of the festivities but his wife wouldn’t linger beyond the dinner that was being prepared as they spoke. Perfect. That gave him time to freshen up and pounce later on.

After the dinner and when the drink truly started flowing and the music picked up, Ulliendis surveyed the crowd. Everyone seemed to be in good spirits and it showed just how important Hatchings were when times were normal and more so with the deaths. People needed reasons to celebrate and lose themselves in happiness for a while. He could get behind that and tossed back the rest of his wine in a silent salute to it.

It also made people less aware of their surroundings and Ulliendis took advantage of that to approach Gangleri when the Harper was alone and conveniently tucked off to the side of everything. “What are you doing here? Did the Hall send you?” Couldn’t they leave him alone?

Gangleri still hadn't gotten over the immense kick he got from introducing people to Quil as his wife. Why yes, this powerful dark sorceress queen was his wife, thank you, he knew he was incredibly lucky to have convinced her to marry him and enrich his life with her presence. And yes, of course she was a much better wife than yours. Not that Gangleri ever said such things directly, but he was sure the point got across. It was his right as a Harper after all, in fact part of his job sometimes, to act so terribly smug about things. He always reigned it in when she gave him that look though, the one that very plainly said that was quite enough. As much as he enjoyed the show, he did also genuinely adore the woman and didn't want to grate on her nerves too much.

That was why he had not objected to her skipping out on the party, even though it would surely mean his demise if the young ladies couldn't keep their hands off of him. He'd probably be fine though, K'dar would be back after dropping her off and his presence would probably be enough to keep at least Mylorah in check. He hoped.

He had secured a glass of wine for himself and was sipping it as he watched the dancers when a familiar face approached him and he raised an eyebrow. "Ullie?" What was he doing here? Gangleri had heard that his former student left the Hall a year ago, spent time lazing about his house with Geric, and then... where had his younger brother said Ullie had gone after that? Ah yes, to Fort Weyr. If Ulliendis had gone to the Weyr to become a candidate that would certainly explain why he was here, but then why was he asking about the Hall? Unless this was a deep cover assignment.

Gangleri studied the young man for a moment, taking another sip of his wine before asking, "Should the Hall have sent me? I was just here to support a friend."

"A friend? Uh-huh," Ulliendis didn't believe that. Why would an old Harper be at a Hatching to support a friend? As far as he was aware, no one with Harper training had been Searched recently and if Gangleri really wanted to support that friend, he would have attended the several that had taken place already that year. It was far too suspicious, especially since he was currently standing alone at a party instead of with said friend.

Maybe he was the friend that needed support?

Ulliendis eyed Gangleri for a long moment, studying the Harper and trying to see if he was subtly relaying some sort of message he should know about. Nothing about this made sense. Gangleri was just a simple performer now anyway, so why send him? It wasn't like you were able to continuously hop around each branch, learning everything. You picked a path and stayed on it. Still, he had to ask.

"Are you back? And that so-called wife of yours?" Gangleri had wandered off via horse before he had left the Hall. Something about his wife's death and needing to find himself if he recalled correctly. He surprisingly hadn't been paying much attention to the drama surrounding older Harpers at the time as he struggled through books he was told to study while preparing for an event he was to attend. But now Gangleri was back and had a new wife?

What in the world was Ulliendis up to? It was clearly something since he was giving Gangleri a look. He blinked, tilting his head curiously. Clearly Ullie thought something was up, and for some reason didn't believe him. Though that still didn't bring any clarity to the situation. It was possible that the runaway Harper had people in the Hall pestering him and trying to get him to come back, but it was just as possible that the runaway was a cover and he was being pestered for updates.

If Ulliendis was still working just in a more subtle capacity, then Gangleri didn't want to interfere. But then if he was on the run then he should probably just reassure the lad that everything was fine, he really was just there for a friend. And then Ullie had to bring up Quil and the decision was made for him. Gangleri had to fuck with the kid now. His lip twitched into a smile and he glanced around before leaning in and saying, "Come on, Ullie, you're better than this. I used to be able to tell people you were one of my brighter pupils."

He rolled his eyes a little and shook his head before casually looping an arm around the younger man's shoulders and steering him even further away from the party towards more seclusion. "I'm honestly surprised it took you this long to make contact, though I will say it was nice to be able to enjoy dinner and the party a bit more. There have been a few whispers as of late, inquiries. You're being sloppy, Ullie, you were taught better than that. Try to keep things a bit more subtle."

"Yeah, well, you were always a good liar," Ulliendis replied as he followed along; not that he had much choice with the arm around his shoulders and risking a scene if he pulled away. But Gangleri believed he had been a good student? He hated studying and bullshitted his way through most things, but he supposed the latter was a good trait for info-gathering in places you aren't supposed to be.

When they reached a bit further away from the crowd, Ulliendis finally shrugged out of his old teacher's grasp so he could turn and glare at him. "I had no reason to make contact with you and I am certainly not sloppy." Unless he wanted to be. Being a sloppy drunk was fun and made it easier to listen in or slink off to places because no one took him seriously. Actually, sloppy and ridiculous were how he went through life in general which was why the Master Harper had liked him for being a spy. But accidentally sloppy in his work? Hardly.

"I'm just trying to figure out why some old guy is hanging around kids. Don't think I haven't noticed the way Mylorah has been looking your way since she got off the Sands earlier." Was that the friend Gangleri was here for? He had no idea how they would have met without the Harper being sent on a mission of his own but Ulliendis still didn't believe that.

But the biggest issue was the inquiries. Was the Hall starting to ask after him? Did they want to bring him back? Did they not trust him anymore? What had changed recently that would draw their attention and send a Harper that he had some personal connection with? Ulliendis was surprised they didn't send Geric as a completely random go-between that wouldn't be too suspicious.

Somehow Gangleri managed to not twitch too much when the younger Harper said Mylorah's name. He nearly dropped the entire game to insist that he wasn't some terrible lecherous old man who only came to Weyrs to indulge in a vice for young woman. A vice which Gangleri most certainly did not have! Elsewise he could have just indulged any young thing that tried to catch his eye and taken them for quite the jaunt.

Still, he wasn't here to let Ullie get a rise out of him, he was the one getting rises today. "What can I say, I've always been popular with the ladies. She is certainly not the first one to have her eye on me, and I'm sure she won't be the last. Perhaps if you were a better student you'd know what that feels like. And I could tell you any number of reasons for why I'm here, but if you can't figure it out for yourself then why should I bother providing you with more?"

Gangleri smirked, shaking his head. "No, I suppose if you really can't solve even that little question I may as well just head back to the Hall once the party is concluded. They'll probably want to hear from me sooner rather than later, you know how impatient they can get." Was he being an enormous ass at the moment? Yes, he most definitely was. But was it entertaining? Oh yes. He'd just have to get Ulliendis a drink to make up for it later on. And perhaps do a few more favors to avoid any real grudges depending on how irate the younger Harper was.

Ulliendis was starting to get seriously pissed at the older Harper. Being a better student had nothing to do with how many ladies looked his way. He wasn’t lacking in female or male lovers since coming to the Weyrs and even in the Hall he had a few lovers. But that wasn’t the defining characteristic of a Harper no matter what the world seemed to think of the craft. He was so disgusted with Gangleri for trying for such a low blow that he couldn’t even dignify it with a response.

At Gangleri’s declaration that he’d have to return to the Hall and report back, Ulliendis barked out a laugh. “Oh yes. They will always want to hear from you given how you like to run off for months. The Master Harper is going to start leashing you soon if you’re not careful.”

Ulliendis took a step back from Gangleri and gave a shake of his head, mocking the old man’s feigned disappointment. He’d finally had enough of the game and being played; because that was most certainly what was happening. Gangleri was talking out of his ass, as usual, and had no clue about what was really going on with him and Ulliendis didn’t feel the need to correct him. “You’re still a pompous ass pretending to know everything except in this case you’re trying too hard and it’s finally come off as over the top and unbelievable. I can recommend a few classes for you to sit in on when you run back to your masters and explain how you almost ruined everything.”

Gangleri's face twitched, and then his lips curled up into an amused smirk and then he couldn't help but let out a loud laugh as he was finally called on his bullshit. "Ah, Ullie, I'll have you know I've ruined plenty of things. Give yourself some time and I'm sure you'll ruin your share too. And I really am just here to support a friend so you don't have to worry about me pestering you or bringing anything back to the Hall aside from the usual gossip and possibly a few letters for other people. Really though, you should try to lighten up. Not everything is a conspiracy against you. Let me get you a drink."

He reached over to give the younger man a quick friendly slap to the arm before beckoning him to follow back to the party. "Oh, and I am actually quite fond of my wife. I would appreciate it if you did not include her in your attempts to annoy me. My previous wife, my horse, and my firelizard are still free game. Oh and I suppose Geric if you really wanted to. He's doing well, in case you were curious."

Though that still left the mystery of what Ulliendis was doing out here. He'd run off and become a candidate quite some time ago, before the string of murders had started.

...

Before the murders. Was it possible... no, Gangleri dismissed the thought. He didn't think Ulliendis was capable. Some of the murders had clearly required brute strength, and while Ulliendis was good at networking and eavesdropping he was less talented at working as a part of a team. Though it was entirely possible he'd learned and improved that skill since the last time Gangleri had seen him in the Hall. No, at best he thought the younger Harper might know something, but he probably wasn't involved. Unless it was part of a bigger assignment.

He'd have to wait until the young man was in a better mood if he wanted to try to get any honest information out of him. "So, aside from a drink provided by the party, what else can I do to try and get back into your relatively good graces again? Need me to deliver anything back to the Hall?"

That was one thing about Gangleri that was almost utterly reliable; the man was unflappable. Or, he came across that way. Ulliendis wasn’t a master at reading people though he thought he was damned good all the same and he couldn’t read minds like a dragon so he would never be able to say for certain. But Gangleri would smile and joke and let the anger of others just roll off his back. Like now. Damn him.

The anger fled out of him as he was chided and he rolled his eyes at the slap to the arm and beckoning, but he did follow like a good student—even if he wasn’t one anymore. “I’ve messed up plenty,” he grumbled under his breath but didn’t elaborate, “and it’s not a conspiracy if it’s true.” He had been trained not to trust easily and to always keep an eye over his shoulder so what did Gangleri expect? Ever since he packed up and left the Hall a year ago, it felt like he had more reason to be cautious, especially around certain people.

Ulliendis sighed and tried to shake himself out of the mood he had riled himself into. It was a party, he was fabulous, and he should be having a great time! Except it was still humid, his hair was still a nightmare, and one of the scratches from a hatchling’s tooth was itchy again. “Bring Geric with you next time. I miss him and I think he’d like to see a Weyr and how they’re constructed. I could give him a tour. The next Hatching is at Ista, by the way.” He hadn’t been there yet but he’d only need a couple of weeks to familiarize himself with the layout and snoop around thoroughly so he could give his friend a proper tour.

He accepted the drink and sipped it while glancing around the area, eyes finding a particular brunette with ease as she danced to a catchy tune. Ulliendis had decided that was the friend Gangleri was there for but even if he was wrong, the warning would still stand. “Be careful with Mylorah, Gangleri. She’s full of information as she knows everyone and loves to gossip but she’s a lot smarter, no, craftier than she appears.”
