Welcome
Dalibor is a semi-canon Dragonriders of Pern site. No knowledge of the series or site is required to join; players of all experience levels are welcome here. Founded in 2008 on Proboards and moved to Jcink in 2013, Dalibor has been running for nine years.

News
Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:

Upcoming Hatchings:

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.

A'DRAN OF BROWN WOBATH
Dusk Wingrider
Former Dreamdiner Weyrling

Standoffish | Observant | Abrasive


BLURB: A'dran can be hard to get along with, but talk of animals is the quickest way to get him to open up. He's calmed down a lot since Impressing, but he can still be a hothead if someone broaches a touchy subject. He has an ever growing fair of firelizards that are no doubt going to cause plenty of antics when he isn't paying attention. Wobath, of course, has particular peculiarities. He likes his Paths and routines, but is otherwise a steady counterpoint to his rider. Often A'dran's fair will perch on the brown like colorful ornaments.

LOOKING FOR: Friends. Please. He sorta has one at the moment. Maybe. It's complicated.

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Em'ry | Enemy turned friend? It's complicated and it's all Embry's fault.
Kida | Fellow Dreamdiner classmate

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
M'rat | Bluerider he keeps in touch with
Kida | DD Classmate
T'tallon | FF Class & Former roommate
Everane | Where there are flits, there is Everane

ARCAINA OF TAN TOPPTH
Furyflier Weyrling

Gregarious | Naive | Confident


BLURB: Arcaina is impulsive, brave and foolish. But what she really wants is to be your friend. She will chatter endlessly if allowed. Childish and naive, Arcaina usually seems younger than she actually is due to a sheltered upbringing. She is a competent apprentice level Harper, though music has fallen to the wayside in favor of focusing on weyrlinghood. Toppth needs 100% of her attention. The tan is whimsical and often lost in a world of her own imagination. (Based off the Mad Hatter, thus makes many Alice in Wonderland references). She likes to party. Because who doesn't enjoy a party?

LOOKING FOR: Friends and foolishness. Because she will try to befriend most anyone, no matter their looks or age.

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
B'tor | Dear friend and big brother figure. Was her searchrider.

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
W'rone | Talked to him about Harpering and Dragonriding
Krys | Fell on her when trying to climb the wall by the waterfall, bonded
Cairenn | Ingoth bit and broke her arm at Coui's 5th hatch; they spoke after, no hard feelings


Xialas
Dragon Candidate

Arrogant | Meticulous | Ambitious



BLURB: Is intensely studious and wants to be a dragonhealer as well as rider someday. Free time? Who needs it? You'll find him in the Infirmary when he isn't in class. Xialas needs to improve his bedside manner, and can be quite abrasive around people he doesn't think are useful. But he is a healer at heart and will always do his best to aid the injured. He doesn't care for animals outside of firelizards and tunnelsnakes, and even then, sees them for their utility. At the moment, he is focusing his studies on Threadscores.

LOOKING FOR: Friends? Mentors? Please throw your healers at him. He needs someone to look up to. Anyone have threadscoring? He will happily try to convince them to let him study their scars.

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Jaq'n | Self-imposed best friend. Fellow healer apprentice. Calls him Xial.

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
B'er | Friendly blackrider
Em'ry | Former oommate and tenative friend
Seviroma | Fellow organization nerd
Maus'en | Former Roommate


Z'phor of Purple Maiwieth
Hearthealer Weyrling

Vain | Playful | Hopeless Romantic


BLURB: We all have our issues. Zeph is just bad at dealing with his. He can be charming or melodramatic, and he is often horribly jealous. But at heart, he just wants people to accept him for him, and to become a different man than his father. His recent impression to Maiwieth may be the very thing to help him love himself and restore the bonds with his siblings.

LOOKING FOR: Friends? Enemies? Objects to subject to his flowery flirtations? Gimmie!

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Rylin | Former classmate. Gave him her sister's bluerider knots as GL charm and a flit egg. Currently at odds since he yelled at her for confessing her feelings to him while a weyrling.
Z'ant | It's good to have guy friends. Especially hard to offend ones.
Elle | Younger sister, they do not know each other well
Phorazaael | Youngest sister
Zel | The oldest sister, Zelsk doesn't seem to like him too much

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
B'tor | Rylin's brother. Mortal enemy. Avoid at all cost.


Zel of Copper Zelsk
[b]Alpha Priderunner
Former Copper Class Wherling

Serious | Responsible | Modest


BLURB: Zel is in a state of metamorphosis. Zelsk won't allow her to remain the quiet, self-doubting person she was before Impression. Because her life started anew when the copper chose her, and Zelsk won't let her forget that. They walk together towards an uncertain future, as Zel learns what her bonded needs from her in order for them to become a better team.

LOOKING FOR: Friends? Interesting people? Zelsk talks to anyone that interests her, including riders and crafters.

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Ollivander | Classmate and friend
Syrene and Syrsk | Classmate and ally

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
Ijo | Wherlingmaster, helped her get to infirmary during jungle plague event
Rayna | They spoke and walked together early on in Zel's wherlinghood
Norla | Alphahandler, interviewed her before she was allowed to attend the hatch where she impressed Zelsk
Oreana (Osk) | Betahandler, Osk was the winner of Zelsk's first run
Kaizre | Classmate


L'aars of Iron Jaireth
Dawn Wingleader

Stoic | Rule-Abiding | Leader


BLURB: Originally from Benden Weyr, this wingsecond transfer has since been promoted to wingleader of Mayday Dawn. He is very hands on when it comes to problems (he played a role in the infiltration and jungle expedition missions) but not always the most emotionally available. But that doesn't mean he isn't looking out for his Wingmates and fellow riders. The thing people will always notice about him is his size. A veritable giant of a man, L'aars is not one you miss in a crowd. Side note: Jaireth chases any female that flies if he is around and able.

LOOKING FOR: Wing interactions! Maybe someone he can play a mentoring role for. Gimmie your silly too. Harass him with strangeness.

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Frayya | Lover and mother of their daughter, they grew closer than expected after Sixwith invaded his weyr
Glen | Former Weyrleader and respected fellow rider
Ly'on | Showed him around the weyr, sometimes seeks L'aars out to talk

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
X'ror | Wine and tragedy and a good work ethic makes for interesting conversation
Sanarth (Jaireth) | First won Flight; sired 5 healthy eggs; he was quite proud of himself

Nia of Pink Koeneth
Weyrlingmaster

Sweet | Social | Motherly


BLURB: Nia is mom. You can be five or fifty, she will mom you. Be it through scolding or encouragement, she wants to guide those around her, especially the younger generation. She adores kids and cannot have any of her own. As a weyrlingmaster, she is usually occupied with her students when she has a class.

LOOKING FOR: She needs to socialize outside of her students and fellow teachers. (Please flirt with her. She needs a nice woman in her life. Even if just for funzies~ )

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Ruane | The most troublemaking student ever. So far.

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
Dh'mel | Retired weyrlingmaster and source of comforting conversation when she lost a student
Zanii | Candidatemaster. Cute lady she flirted with at the Moon Masque



Cesselia
Weyrfolk

Quiet | Curious | Adventurous


BLURB: The yet-to-be discovered little sister to A'dran. Rare to speak, she spends most of her time in the creche or exploring the lower caverns and trying to pet whers. She doesn't make friends easily and distrusts people. Recently she purchased an icehowler pup (with help from Wyn) and he is seen with her everywhere.

LOOKING FOR: Antics and meaningful relationships. Kids need to have fun (and puppies are trouble sometimes!) but Cess also needs to trust people. Someone to help her become more comfortable speaking would be wonderful!

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Wyn | Prideleader that helped her purchase her icehowler, Guardian

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:
Xaverex | Invaded his workshop in the middle of the night
Em'ry | He's pretty good at getting people to talk...sometimes


Z'iro of Cyan Siadeth
[b]Hearthealer Weyrling, Journeyman Harper

Chivalrous | Charming | Dedicated


BLURB: Zen is your fairytale harper. Romantic, charming and more pretty than sensible--he is a man with poetry on the heart and a passion for his Craft. He is certain that if he focuses on Harpering, that dragons will leave him alone (because him, a Candidate? No.) Too bad his latest assignment has him in the middle of a weyr, surrounded by dragons. His latest craft assignment led to him Stands impressing. He's still adjusting. But his little lady may be just what he needed all along.

LOOKING FOR: Anything and everything!

SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS:
Rilorden | Eldest sister, weyrlingmaster
Azaril | Youngest sister, apprentice harper and candidate

MINOR RELATIONSHIPS:

CAT. HI.

So Aydran Impressed and I'd like to trade in my current (sorely outdated) thread with you for something new.

Problem is, I don't have any concrete ideas yet. But I've got tons of options.

- Arisa and Swath could have solo time with their Weyrlingmasters - they're kind of a weird pair, Arisa is a little like Wednesday Addams, just not so violent. No one ever predicted that she'd Impress, her father even believed it wouldn't be possible because she's not particularly empathetic.
- Candidate-wise I still only have Tristallon. Feel free to cause chaos with him and whoever. They don't have to get along.
- We can't do this one yet, but after the Undercover plot finishes, L'aars and Elianne, I will need it like water.

And of course if you roll through my characters and feel like there's anyone else you'd like to grab for a thread, feel free! I'm up for whatever.

Hiiii!

I like all the ideas~ Threads are luv.


L'aars and Elianne: Yessss. I was going to poke you when the plot was over to thread about that! We can discuss it more when the time comes around.

Arisa and Nia: Nia's door is always open. (And she desperately needs non-lesson/hatch threads) If she has a problem or would like to talk about lessons or whatever, I am game.

Tris and Arcaina: I adore Tris. He is precious. How do you feel about Arcaina taking some advice from Krys and jumping on him from an elevated place? (Because falling out of trees is apparently the ideal way to make friends your age)

Other: I need to thread Zel and Cesselia more. Cess especially. Have any wherhandlers that she could follow around? Heh.

Tris and Arcaina - yes absolutely, she can death from above him. Or friend from above.

Arisa and Nia - Let me think of a good question for her to come to Nia about. She's irritatingly self-sufficient, sometimes! It's also possible that she ends up in trouble somehow - when she was still a weyrbrat she got in trouble a couple times for dissuading people from bothering her or her pets/possessions via violence because it was the fastest solution. Her father and his weyrmate tried to dissuade her from that, of course, but they're gone.

I do have wherhandlers! I'd recommend Damarion or Liamaedra - Der is busy prideleadering, and Yenyne is a shy little butterfly of a person and not a great option for following.

Wee~ We shall have death (friend) from above then. And Nia can totally be strict if one of her bebs gets in trouble. Totally. Hope Arisa likes talking about her feelings. xD And either of your wherhandlers would be interesting to Cess. She isn't afraid of whers (pros and cons to that) so even if they look weird or scary it doesnt bother her. Maybe its some odd hour of the night and she tries to 'sneak' after a pair as they patrol?

And preferences for which pairing to start with/where? Because I'd be happy to make a starter for one of the ones that we have mostly sorted out!

If you want to friend from above Tris it might have to be just outside the Weyr proper, maybe on the path down to the docks because there aren't really trees or much elevation to "from above" someone in the Bowl. He goes out there often in the evening to get some breathing space.

I can start Ari/Nia so she can be SO DISAPPOINTED. XD

Hmm. Possibly Damarion? He's mute (for reals mute, though lol), but his wher is a chatterbox. It might be a very gesture-heavy thread!

In which Cess and Damarion gesture at each other as chatterbox wher comments the whole while. Heh. Mute plus doesn't speak equals a need for a new way to communicate. I like it. I'd be willing to start this one if you like. Or I can hold it. Don't wanna swamp you with threads if you are busy busy.

And I shall death from above Tris outside the wher. Arcaina will no longer have her arm in a sling, so it will be a safer venture. xD

(Nia. Guilt tripping pro. Totally the mom-teacher that you can't believe is looking at you with such hurt in her eyes. Bwaha. Anyway! I look forward to it.)

I shall get on that thread~ Slow day at work. Need something to pass the time.

@Catsitta

I know you wanted threads for Xialas but I'm not sure how to go about that. My first thought is that, once I get my RFE flitter description, Emira could seek him out for some minor injury and fret over her little Pink. It will probably be a very awkward meeting, but a meeting none the less!

For Zaephor, maybe a thread with him and Caelen since they're roomies? I'm not sure what they'd do, though. He and Laerien could be wistful about romance together.

Zen should totally fall asleep in some random place and have his personal space invaded by Tarisk.

Nia is a bit difficult because I don't have any Weyrlings. She could try to mother Emira? Her penchant for young things could show up when Xavinyra is out working with Belior. I'm thinking the Icehowler is probably still young and fluffy enough to catch Nia's attention.

@Harbinger

Those all sound like fun~ And I am partial to the one with Zen falling asleep in an odd place and disturbed by a wher. Xialas and Zeph are always grand fun, so I am open to those suggested scenarios. If you are worries about too many threads, Zen is gonna be priority to me.

I think I can handle the load, so no worries!

Can you start the Zen one? I think it would be awkward to post the discovery and then have you post the discovered.

Let's put Xia on the back burner for the next week, then, for the flitt idea. I should have the RFE description exchange by then!

I'll start a thread for Zaeph and Laerien since we already have the candidate lesson.

@Catsitta

Two thread ideas actually! One for both Cesselia and Zeniro~

For Cesselia:

I was thinking that we could maybe get her and Faygren to run into each other somehow. Maybe we can get her a potential brother-figure or something. Who knows~

For Zeniro:

Don't really have anything planned, but I think it'd be interesting with how they could interact with one another. Who knows what could form between them or even happen lol

Cesselia is collecting all the family figures. Heh. I'm always game~

As for Zen, he juuuust impressed (cue my woefully out of date plotter/timeline that I keep neglecting) but I would love to rp him more! Everyone has to eat or have a lil free time to cross paths. He is a social boyo.

But definitely game to see how things will lead for both Cesselia and Zen~

Both is good~ Zen is still figuring out this whole dragon thing after being so adamant never to accept a Search. Maybe he can be working on some kind of composition somewhere (by the lake/in dining hall) and your doot can for whatever reason be curious about THINGS. xD

Cess likes sneaking out of the creche and has her half grown ice howler. They could legit meet anywhere. I've had her nose around crafter work spaces and the infirmary. Heh.

Any one you'd like to start? I won't be home and settled for another couple hours.

Oooh very interesting~~~ Lol I can start two threads for both of them and we can see which one gets more popular first lmao I've got time so no rush also~ Might take a little bit for me to shoot one out (Might be Zen first probably) but those are very helpful locations to know of for the threads xD
