Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass
While not unnatural in its violence, the dual hatching of Copper Queens Laanasuth, and Zelsk, has brought many changes Pernwide to the Dragon Candidate program. Raising the Age of Candidacy, and laying more rigorous emotional requirements on those admitted into the program and permitted to stay after. Dalibor has settled into an easy peace with the hatching fading into memory and young dragonets and wherets visible as they come into their own.
Included in their ranks are two colours new to Pern. Indigo dragons, and Pink whers, as well as Dalibor's first instance of a dual-bonded Wherhandler. As always, the West seems eager to produce weirdness for the rest of Pern.
Curiously, a steady flow of messengers seem to be traveling between Grove and Dalibor Weyr during the early sevendays of the new season; which is already proving to be milder than some in Dalibor's recent history.

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.

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.

||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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In: Life, Uhhh... Finds a Way
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.

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.

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.
