Spring, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights:
Red Cyanide

Upcoming Hatchings:
Amber Era

Western Hold welcomes new blood in the form of a young couple, Lord Holder Basasius and Lady Holder Baria. A grand Gather is being hosted by Western Hold to welcome their new Lord and Lady.

While the new Lords settle into Western there has been talk and speculation about the western continent's other Hold. It has been two turns since his wife's passing in the south, when will Lord Callum decide to take up a new wife?

Spring has woken an abundance of plant life across Pern with intermittent spring showers helping to sate the growth's never ending thirst. With the end of snow and cold comes Thread once more; Dalibor's wings have no doubt been reduced due to losses over the winter but none the less they persevere.

Leadership positions are not determined solely by color however the following constraints are in place for Wingleader and Wingsecond positions:

Wingleaders:
Upper Flight - 44 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes)
Middle Flight - 37 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples)
Lower Flight - 28 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples, Yellows, Blues, Cyans, Burgundys, Some Greens)

Wingleaders should have Wingsecond backgrounds.

Wingseconds:
Upper Flight - 37 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples)
Middle Flight - 28 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples, Yellows, Blues, Cyans, Burgundys, Some Greens)
Lower Flight - 18 ft+ (All dragons except Greys and most Whites)

Wingseconds are rarely picked fresh out of weyrlinghood.

All positions require player activity - if you cannot be active and available for plots, lessons, etc then it is unlikely your character will be picked over another who is. There are activity requirements listed below for the various ranks.

All positions have age considerations in place. For instance if two riders apply for a Wingsecond position who are both eligible but one has far more turns under their belt it is likely they will be picked over the younger applicant. No riders or handlers below 16 should apply.

Candidate, wherling, and weyrlingmasters are teachers of the next set of Dalibor's hopefuls and newly Impressed. Please be aware that only the most reliable Riders and Handlers will be chosen for these positions. These should be riders and/or handlers who are mature and have been bonded and graduated for 10+ turns. OOCly, these positions require the most activity from the member applying.

Applying does not guarantee that you will receive a position as soon as it becomes available, or ever; it depends upon the suitability of the character and the nature of the opening. Positions may be offered to characters who are not signed up for various reasons, but we greatly prefer people to officially apply. We do very much enjoy spreading the love around in terms of rank!

Activity Requirements

As of April 1, 2017, the following activity requirements are in place for leadership ranks. Characters holding specific ranks will need to meet these requirements to retain their rank. All of the below numbers are for a given activity period (the space of time between one activity check and the next, which is 6 months) and must span at least 2 of the 6 months.

Weyrwoman/Weyrleader (Jr & Sr) 6 posts
Alphahandler/Betahandler 6 posts
Weyrling-/Wherling-/Candidatemaster 6 posts
Wingleader/Prideleader 4 posts
Wingsecond/Pridesecond 4 posts
Lord/Lady Holder 4 posts

The above requirements will be reviewed each activity check. Members will be asked in their Activity Check post to include links to the correct number of posts. Failure to link the required number of posts falling within the span outlined above will result in the character being removed from that rank.

An officially posted hiatus will be accepted in place of ONE of a character's required posts.

Multi-character posts (i.e. posting multiple characters in the same post in hatchings, plots, feasts, etc) will count for each character included IF the character's section of the post is at least 150 words long.

Any post or partial post of sufficient length will count towards the number of posts needed to meet activity. However, players of characters in any leadership position are expected to post as needed by their role (for example, if tagged in a plot or event for a leadership reason).

Weyrlingmasters and wherlingmasters are expected to post one lesson per season, while attached to a class. Candidatemasters between each other are expected to post one lesson OR candidate-based activity per season. These roles are critical in welcoming new members (who often begin with one or more candidates, who then become weyrlings and wherlings) and providing these characters with easily accessible places to explore and demonstrate what they're like and how they act.

If a player's character is consistently not meeting these expectations, staff reserves the right to remove the character's rank as has been necessary in the past.

Posting proof of meeting activity requirements for a role in an activity check will earn 50 marks per role met. Weyrlingmasters and wherlingmasters with a class who post a lesson for each season plus the graduation on time will receive a 300-mark completion bonus at their class's graduation. Weyrlingmasters and wherlingmasters receive classes on rotation to spread the wealth.

EXAMPLE OF MEETING REQUIREMENTS
*

Period: April 1-Oct 1

Bennio, Jr Weyrwoman - 6 posts required

Bennio attends the senior queen's next hatching (April). She posts twice.
Bennio dances at the hatching feast (Also April). She posts once.
Bennio has a quiet picnic lunch by the lake (June). She posts three times.

The post count requirements for Bennio are now met. However, if there's also a plot in September and someone goes BENNIO, HELP I NEED YOU, the player still needs to hit the plot if at all possible.

Character & Bonded: Swithin & Blue Swisk
Ages: 34 & 14
Current Rank: Priderunner
Applying for Rank: Wherlingmaster

Qualifications/Why?:
Swithin and Swisk have been bonded for 14 turns total; while Swisk is physically frail compared to younger/healthier whers he is very driven and does not let his physical limitations hold him back. Swithin sees only the best in his wher and while he recognizes there are some things he is not capable of doing he never tries to hold Swisk back unless it is truly too dangerous - he would treat wherlings in the same manner by always encouraging them where needed but also being capable of putting a stop to anything dangerous. Swisk feels a connection of sorts to younger whers and feels responsible for them - he thrived when he and Swithin acted as assistant wherlingmasters at Telgar Weyr for a turn prior to coming to Dalibor. Swithin's bedside manner is not great, however he is straight forward and does not mince words - his personality would likely do nothing to hinder his class and likewise he has enough tact to realize there are some things he cannot say. Acting as wherlingmaster would give both Swithin and Swisk a sense of purpose and further cement their place at Dalibor; both man and wher would put their all into developing the young wherlets as well as helping the wherlings improve upon their bonds.

Note: Swithin and Swisk did not graduate with their original wherling class, however this was Swithin's choice as he felt with Swisk's frail nature repeating their lessons would only help his wher develop more.

Character & Bonded: Oreanda & Bronze Osk
Ages: 24 & 4
Current Rank: Prideleader
Applying for Rank: Betahandler

Qualifications/Why?:

Oreanda has been a spitfire her entire life. She has never backed down from a challenge, especially after overcoming the challenge of being born blind in a world as dangerous as Pern. She spent a large portion of her youth with a pod of dolphins, became a Dolphineer, then was discovered as a Hears All Dragons and brought to the Weyr by Valha of Tan Mith. While many people thought she might have been Impressable by dragons, it was a wher that found her. Matching his drive with her own they have been an unstoppable force since their first day of Wherlinghood.

While they would completely stand by the fact that their Wherlinghood was a flawless example of pure talent--they quickly achieved Pridesecond positions of the Wherling Pride--their Wherlingmaster would have choice words about their curiosity and headstrong nature. While they were tempered into tools for the Weyr, the pair are always striving to be better than they were the day before, so they are always learning, and growing. They will seek out and explore opportunities beyond the walls of the Weyr when available, or necessary.

Upon graduating they were immediately posted as Prideseconds, and worked there until they were promoted to Prideleader. Since that posting they have worked with Crescent and other Holds on the main continents to implement their Wherlindmaster's landing pad idea for safe wher betweening, enabling the Prides of Pern to know better freedom and faster response times during times of disaster when response would otherwise require dragon transport or eyes on the ground. She has also participated in defending the West's Holds, exploring new frontiers in the South, and venturing into uncertain territory to put an end to the Traditionalist stranglehold.

Oreanda has made no bones about the fact that she's working towards taking over for Alphahandler Norla when the woman retires or falls prey to Pern's perils, and being named Betahandler is the next, logical, step in her life plan. If promoted, she is willing to commit every waking moment to the Program and Dalibor's whers, taking over as much work as Norla will allow her to help carry the load. She is very grateful for this opportunity and your personal consideration.
