Welcome
to the southern continent

D'Sanctine Weyr takes place in 10th Pass Pern. AIVAS was never discovered, and Thread still falls on the planet. Overpopulating causes stress in the Weyrs, which leads to the foundation of a new southern Weyr, dubbed D'Sanctine. A Hold is founded to support the Weyr, titled Sanctis Hold. Old riders and prospective candidates flock to the new Weyr for a chance at an easier, less crowded life, but the hatching of dragons of strange colors has left the more conservative holds and Weyrs in the north uneasy. The political atmosphere is tense as a drawn bowstring-- it is only a matter of time before the arrow is loosed.

Summer - P10 T16


5/4/17 - Mornings have been foggy thanks to warm days and cool evenings. There was recently a routine Threadfall that only resulted in a few injuries and no fatalities. The weyrfolk are gathering and brewing up some vats of numbweed to resupply, so a section of the Weyr is going to be awfully stinky for a few days.

4/1/17 - Fall has arrived, and with it pleasant breezes and the occasional storm. It's by no means cold, but it isn't as impossibly hot and humid as summer gets.

Shyrana was busy completing her chores. At the moment she stood before a pile of dishes left untouched by the drudges of the Hold. She sighed with exasperation, frustrated but determined to get things done. The kitchen space was adorned with a window, the thick shutters thrown open as threadfall wasn't due for some time. The view outside was barren, not particularly pleasing aesthetically. She longed to see the green of thick foliage, but it was unlikely she was going to have a chance to see such things, not if she planned to stay at Benden Hold for the rest of her days.

She scoured a skillet that the cook had done a number on. Her shoulders burned with tension due to the repetitious movements. She finished with the skillet and moved on to another particularly sad looking serving tray. It was then that she heard the roar, their watchdragon seemed to be welcoming the presence of another, had a dragon come to visit their hold?

Memories of past fantasies flashed through her mind, she was seated atop a flying dragon, wind billowing up around her. The details were crisp and clear, just as the air she and her dragon flew through.

"What is that?" An old woman asked. The old headwoman was nearby, not entirely willing to dig in to the grunt work the same way Shyrana was.

A familiar man walked in the door, he wore the typical garb of a member of the hold, though adorned in the colors of the harper hall and his shoulder was adorned with the knots of a master. "I think there's a visiting dragon." The man answered.

The man was named Shor, and he was Shyrana's father, the resident Harper for the Hold. Shyrana looked up and examined the two authority figures in her life. The headwoman supervised her, and her father guided her in all other manners. "What do you think they're here for?" Shyrana asked, trying to remain nonchalant.

"Could be any number of things, visiting the Lord Holder, relieving the Watchdragon, they could be on Search." Shor finished the list. The last thing on the list caught Shyrana's attention. "Come, we should receive our guests." Shor motioned for Shyrana and the headwoman to follow him outside, guiding them to the receiving courtyard that dragons normally used to land.

Sliding down from Calsith T'nas pulled his helmet off and took a deep breath of the fall air. He had almost forgotten what it was like to have seasons that didn't consist of hot and humid, scorching and humid and every so often tolerable and humid. Catching his rider's thoughts Cal rumbled with amusement before stretching out so the man could reach the large bags containing freshly picked fruits that were so abundant down south.

This was one of his more unofficial jobs and he took great enjoyment in getting away from the weyr even if it was for only a few hours. Giving the blue's side a pat once he was done T'nas turned to check the bags and make sure they had all survived the trip safely. "Want to go visit Cal? Last time we were here it took ages to get the barrels brought up."

The blue's only response was a rumbled negative as he watched the group exit the hold to greet them. More to the point he watched the young woman who accompanied them. Squinting up at Cal T'nas paused then followed the dragon's look. "Oh no, no you do not go searching someone here."

Why not? Potential is where it is.

"Yes and /THIS/ potential is firmly in Benden lands. Both weyrwomen would have our heads if we poached."

The blue lowered his head with a displeased rumble at that. It is not as if they are using her.

Stifling another sigh T'nas turned again to face the approaching group and put on a smile. "That time of year again."

Shyrana marveled at the presence of the new blue dragon she had not seen before. The creature was beautiful and drew her attention. His rider looked to be a tall blonde fellow, he expertly slid down from his perch on the dragon's back.

"Hello!" Shor called to the bluerider. The harper was oftentimes a mouthpiece for the Hold, especially in the absence of their Lord holder. The old woman remained silent, consistent with her understanding of the station she was appointed to.

Shyrana joined the two of them in approaching the dragon and rider, her eyes remained trained on the dragon, and if she wasn't mistaken, he was returning her gaze. When they finally approached enough, she commented loudly, "He's beautiful."

T'nas stepped forward to offer the harper a genuine smile. "Well met, I'm T'nas of Calsith over there. We drew the transport stick for this round so brought up the first batch of the season." Glancing over to the headwoman T'nas nodded to one of the bags. "That one has some younger fruit in it, last rider mentioned you all were interested in experimenting with it."

Following the conversation half way Cal let his tail tips twitch idly. At the woman's praise he shifted slightly so his colors caught the light better before lowering his head to examine her more. Thank you.

Shyrana jumped as the words appeared in her mind, "Oh! Hello! You're very welcome!" She noticed as he shifted his body and how the light played across his beautifully colored hide.

"Masterharper Shor at your service." Shor gave a deep bow, in typical harper fashion. "We appreciate your assistance, Southern by far has the best fruit crops."

The older woman wordlessly moved forward and collected the bags of fruit, at the woman's glance, Shyrana moved with her to assist in collecting the items. "Yes, thank you for bringing the fruit, it will certainly please our Lord Holder." Shyrana commented to the bluerider.

T'nas glanced back at the dragon. "Cal. Behave." The dragon rumbled again before dropping his head almost with an amused sound. Shaking his head a moment T'nas glanced back to the harper "My apologies for him, he usually has much better manners."

At the mention of the fruit again T'nas smiled once more. "It helps that we do not have so many mouths to feed so we're not pressed. As you are the one to greet me I assume the Lord Holder is out and you will be overseeing the trade formalities?" Glancing to the woman curiously T'nas turned back to the Harper. He most decidedly was not going to encourage Cal in this.

"Why yes, the Lord Holder delegates such tasks usually, I believe he is entertaining some of the minor holders." Shor became very business like, "How much would you like for the fruit? We would certainly be able to pay handsomely, we might also be able to offer some Benden Wine if you prefer." There was no need for the Harper to pretend they weren't wealthy, and he would not give the rider a runaround when it came to something like a trade for fruit.

Shor glanced from the rider to his daughter, he knew how much she liked dragons in her younger turns, but he had assumed she'd grown out of it.

Shyrana lingered, she didn't want to leave when an active rider was present. Sure the watchdragon was around, but the crotchety old brown kept to himself and his rider was quite rude to any of the holdfolk.

"Calsith? You are quite the handsome fellow." Shyrana spoke again, clearly unfazed by the behavior his rider was discouraging.

Digging in one of the pouches strapped to his leg T'nas passed over the crisp trade receipt. "Should all be on there including what percentage has been requested in wine. I believe at the moment beastcrafter hall marks are the most preferred. We've had frequent clutches and another on the sands soon."

We are always in need of good candidates to stand for them. Shifting a bit more the dragon placed his head down directly in front of her where he could focus both whirling green eyes.

Shor took the receipt offered by the bluerider. "Ahh, the wine is no problem, but would either Harpercraft or Smithcraft marks suffice?" He signaled for a nearby drudge and gave her directions on how much wine to collect.

At the words of the rider regarding a new clutch on the sands, Shyrana perked up again, becoming more alert. When his words were joined by those that now filled her mind, Shyrana had to keep from shouting 'Me! Pick me!' But she kept her composure, attempting to master her expression to one of polite interest.

"Oh? Have you found any good ones?" She asked, much more controlled than how she felt on the inside.

T'nas nodded to the man. "Harper will be fine, they spend well anywhere." At Cal's words the man inwardly cringed before turning so he was facing everyone, including the stubborn blue. "A decent few so far, Cal is actually one of our search dragon pairs."

Giving the woman another look he finally turned to Shor seemingly dismissing her for the moment. "Would you mind if we stepped inside? I'm afraid I've been in the south too long now and have grown accustomed to the heat."

Calsith watched the conversation with one eye looking very much like he had won some minor victory.

Shor looked pleased, "Wonderful!" he responded as their deal was complete. At the bluerider's request, Shor seemed even more excited to entertain some company. "Yes, yes, right this way, can our headwoman get you anything? Klah? Wine?"

Shyrana gave a look back towards Calsith before turning to follow her father and the bluerider. The harper herded the small group towards the door to the kitchen but led them to a small receiving room with comfortable chairs.

T'nas gave the pair a wry smile as he followed the harper into the room and settled into a chair. "I would not say no to a fine glass of wine." After a moment's thought he sighed "I'll get straight to the point. Cal believes she has the potential to be a dragonrider if she wishes it. This isn't our territory though so I am hesitant to state even that."

Pausing he glanced over to the woman. "However, with Benden itself not having a clutch on the sands I do not see why they would deny a petition if you cared to return with us and stand."

The headwoman excused herself to retrieve a glass of wine for the bluerider the second the words left his mouth. Shor took a seat, and at T'nas's revelation paused for a moment. He took his seat and remained silent, clearly mulling over what the bluerider had told him.

Shyrana on the other hand, gasped when the rider had told them of her of the possibility of her candidacy. "Whatever it takes, I want to be a candidate." Shyrana stated emphatically. She did not wait for her father as a good young woman might be expected. This was her chance.

Shor looked surprised, but didn't allow it stay long. If he had any displeasure at his daughter's outburst he mastered it well. "Well it sounds like we must petition Benden then." Shor sounded...amused? Shyrana raised a single eyebrow, examining her father and suspicious at the ease with which he gave his own consent.

The old woman returned with wine for T'nas and offered it to him silently before moving along, aware that this conversation did not really concern her.
