Just popping in with a note that you guys will see in the info that will get put up as time goes on in the next... whatever time period it takes...
Ummm so yeah, thinking about how to say this.
Basically, we are going pretty Canon Pern in some aspects, and twisting just a little for societal changes.
We will allow what is called 'Stand-ins' for flights. But only Green flights. Stand In is when a rider severaly objects to a particuarly Rider ending up their partner during a mating flight.
IE Saria doesn't want to fu T'd. So she leaves to sequester herself with D'rk.
ONLY Green riders can do this, and ONLY with GM permission.
After some research I also discovered that dragons are NOT influenced by their Riders preferences. This means the Dragon Chooses teh Dragon they find most suited for the flight.
So people do not end up doing things they are not comfortable with, you may request to 'close' your flight - or you can take the option of a 'black out' when the Green has chosen the Male she wants. This way you do not have to write a sex scene you will not enjoy, and you will not have to do something you are not comfortable with.
What this means is you will not be 'forced' to roleplay a sexual scene you have no interest in. But just because your Dragon Chooses a Dragon and fuck that rider does not mean you have to be in a relationship with them. In the Weyrs they are much more sexually open. A Rider is more than allowed to have a weyrmate, and that weyrmate will never
take incidence with the flight sex that happens.
Unless they were raised ina hold and they are still new to the Weyr and are stuck up... XP
So Stand-INs are allowed for Green Flights only. This is because Gold Flights are very important, and it is often believed the full unity of Dragons and Riders and full um... you know between both parties, produces the best clutch. The higher a dragon gets, the longer her flight is, the larger the Gold's clutch.
