Winter, 17th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Hatchings:

Winter continues on but for a lucky few it is not a factor as they travel south. Grove Weyr has called on Dalibor to assist them with exploring the deep jungle to the southeast of the Weyr. Warm weather sounds great and for a few days it is for the explorers.

Good things never last and those on the expedition soon meet huge snakes capable of crushing a human, huge felines - some of which are taken alive to be delivered somewhere, new fruits, new medicinal plants, and also a gorgeous bloom that no one has ever seen the likes of before! Other fauna in the jungle proves to be far more friendly as a number of riders and handlers return with winged snakes and some kind of bushy tailed rodent? No one is quite sure what they are but the beasthall will surely be interested in the new species!

Illness spreads through the expedition goers and then through Dalibor as well - possibly spread by someone who returned early from the expedition. No one is entirely sure what the catalyst for the illness was and it has an alarming fatality rate. For days there are large groups of people that are touch and go, healers work non-stop to keep them from perishing; for some their effort is in vain.

No New Posts Weyr Bowl
The Weyr that is Dalibor sits on an island north of the Western Continent. Its bowl is carved out of the mountain that dominates the island, carved by the river that flows through the Weyr. The bowl's walls are sheer and smooth, starting high and steep at the north and fading away to nothing at the south where the river runs out to the Weyr's small, protected harbor. Shaped like a teardrop, the bowl is wide and open, one's vision blocked only by a handful of buildings: the candidate and weyrling barracks, the kennels, and the stable.

No New Posts Weyr Lake
At the north end of the bowl, a waterfall falls from high atop of the cliffs, sending up spray as it crashes down into the pool that has formed at its base. The pool is a near perfect circle, narrowing to a stream between two short hills that are crested by a bridge. That stream then turns into the Weyr's large lake, a body of water that is a teardrop facing against the teardrop that is the bowl. Though it fills most of the Weyr's floor space, the lake is not overly deep, even at its center, but it is full of fish and pillies. The lake turns into a river before meeting with Dalibor's feeding grounds, continuing the powerful stream that fuels the Weyr's mighty waterfall.

No New Posts Kitchen & Dining Hall
The bustling, expansive kitchen is the underbelly of the Weyr with its many warm hearths and often abundant enticing scents. On busy days, the dining hall is entirely overlooked, often just a lonely little cavern when everybody chooses to eat in the kitchen or elsewhere. However, it marks the place for feasts and revelries on special occasions, and the few scuffs marks on the floor mark a mixture of both very happy and very sad memories. This is the lifeblood and center of the Weyr, playing the part of its heart and soul.

No New Posts Lower Caverns
Work rooms, storage caves, guest quarters, and rooms for the weybrats and people of the Weyr, the lower caverns lie below the riders and their weyrs. The caves play host to crafters, weyrfolk, and guests of the Weyr. They are the people with no dragon, or no wher, besides those chosen to stand to Impress one. Dark inside the corridors with few windows, it is reminiscent of one of the northern holds. The infirmary is located near the kitchen and the quarters for any healers staying at the Weyr. Harpers also get their own space.

No New Posts Weyrs
Located high up on the walls of the bowl and generally accessed by openings at the front, the personal weyrs play home to the dragonriders of Dalibor. From the large ones for Weyrwomen with the records room nestled amongst them by the hatching sands to the smaller weyrs nearer the entrance path where the fighters typically live, they come in all sizes and all different forms. There is no consistent factor to them besides the fact they contain a cave with a couch for dragons and a room for their riders.

No New Posts Weyrlings' Barrack
Left of the lake, this large, one-story building made of metal and stone is where young dragons and their riders grow up and begin their training. Divided into two corridors, one for the girls and one for the boys, there is enough space for several large hatchings of weyrlings. Each room is designed with plenty of space (most greens and some blues would be able to fit inside) for either a pair of smaller dragonets or one larger dragonet, and their riders. They are simply furnished with string beds, cots, and chests.

No New Posts Wherhandler Quarters
Occupying most of the space in the lower caverns not actually filled by lower cavern caves, the quarters for the wherhandlers mixes small, enclosed rooms with long, dark corridors. Much of the space back away from from the bowl is dedicated to giving space to work with the whers. The larger caves that have been carved out offer training courts and lounges for the pairs that typically prefer the dark and quiet. The winding tunnels offer plenty of space to run and patrol.

No New Posts Wherlings' Barrack
Unlike the other barracks, the wherlings' barrack takes up another section of the lower caverns, by the wherhandler quarters. Running along one long hallway that branches at one end into the wher caverns and the bowl at the other, small rooms dot the walls in alcoves. If there are many wherlings, roommates might be required, but generally everyone gets their own room. A bowl in the floor offers a place for a wher to sleep while humans get a cot and chest.

No New Posts Candidates' Barrack
Right of the lake, this building is divided into two sections in order to keep male and female candidates somewhat separate. Wher candidates are located near the back while dragon candidates tend to fill up most of the space. Each small room has a bunkbed in it and a couple of chests for the belongings of the two occupants. The location of the barrack is extremely close to the ground entrance to the hatching sands to make the run short come hatching time.

No New Posts Hatching Sands
The largest cavern in the entire Weyr holds the hatching sands where eggs are laid to harden. Most of the floor is dominated by the expansive hot sands that are kept in by a small lip of stones. There’s enough room to hold the clutches of a couple of Queens. Most of the rest of the floor is covered by a set of benches surrounded by a wall that serve as the spectators' stands. Higher up on the wall are tiered ledges for dragons and riders.

No New Posts Outer Village and Docks
A winding road runs down Dalibor's Bowl, splitting the Weyrwall into two towering cliffs as it curls through thick vegetation towards the ocean. Cropping up among the trees and bleeding out onto the vegetation rich soil are Crafter's Cottages and a small village of seasonal workers, visitors, and Fisherfolk. The road splits into many small avenues which eventually end unfinished awaiting further construction. Where the winding road ends a dock springs constructed from rock and stone jutting out into the sea. It can harbor quite a few large vessels though usually houses only fishing boats and tithe barges.

No New Posts Northern Dalibor Island
Dalibor sits like the knot of a bowtie splitting the island upon which it rests in half. This is the Northern and smaller side of her shores. It extends some leagues North by Northeast out into the sea. There is much vegetation, and many hidden caves within the boundaries of the thick growth ringed by white sand. The far beach is marked by an enormous boulder, a relic of this island's past volcano.

No New Posts Western Dalibor Island
The largest half of Dalibor's bowtie, the curling hook of this area's peninsula begins as a crescent bay outside of Dalibor's walls, guarding her docks. From there it extends a day's journey on foot to the ocean. Lost within its thick vegetation are caves, wild whers, and sometimes unknown or undiscovered wonders. The far more dangerous side of Dalibor's island, travel here is often discouraged if you are alone.

No New Posts Western Hold
Located on the bay that comes off the strait, near its southern end, Western Hold was the first hold on the Western Continent and the only firmly established one. They play host to a major Harperhall and a major Fisherhall. Located both on top of and inside the cliffs, the hold mainly utilizes the bay as a harbor and they fish for the edible fish that are abundant in the nearby waters. The terrain is heavily wooded around them, better for collecting timber then any sort of farming.

No New Posts Crescent Hold
Though the main part of Crescent Hold is largely complete, this is the later of the two holds on the Western Continent and not as established. Still, it holds its own and lays claim to having a major Dolphinhall and a major Minerhall. The dolphins prove useful in the surprisingly warm waters of Crescent Bay where the hold is located. The miners make use of few mines on the continent. Farmland is beginning to yield near the hold and the fishing is good.

No New Posts Open Skies
The open skies of Pern, from the clear blue expanse above the Southern Continent, to the brisk crisp winds of the Northern Continent, to the bitter unexplored airs above the Western Continent, and even the windy, spirally storms above the seas. This is where mating dragons take flight with suitors in their wakes, where wings rise up to defend Pern, and where a dragon can take a lazy afternoon glide. The skies of anywhere offer endless possibilities.

No New Posts Western Continent
Though the smallest one of Pern’s three continents, the Western Continent is largely unexplored once you move off the beaches. The lowlands are largely temperate rainforests or drier woods with ancient growth. Moving up into the higher lands, the continent becomes filled with low mountains amongst stretches of plateaus with dry, windy plains. Though both the southern and northern beaches are very hospitable, the strait that splits the continent is lined with rocky cliffs.

No New Posts Western Ring Islands
All of the ring islands are largely unrecorded. The eastern ones play host to the holdless. The western ones extend down in a slight arc from the bottom end of the Western Continent. Though the northern ones tend to be larger and mountainous, the smaller southern and middle islands tend to be very warm and tropical. Still, the waters near the beaches can be treacherous with unexplored hazards and the islands are veiled with mystery. Few bother to go to them.

No New Posts The Rest of Pern
Pern is a vast and colorful world, and the residents of Dalibor come from every corner of the globe. The Northern Continent displays a variety of climates. From the cold northern air of High Reaches and Telgar, to the temperate nature of Fort, the prairies and deserts of Keroon and Igen, and the tropical paradise of Ista and Southern Boll, the people of the Northern Continent are as diverse as its landscapes. The Southern Continent is lush with thick, green jungles and picturesque beaches, kept safe by the dragons in the sky and the Thread-eating grubs in the ground.
