A Group RP based off of
The Dragon Riders of Pern Series
It has been two hundred years since the last fall was scheduled, and two hundred years
for the people of Pern to believe that the looming threat of thread was finally over.
It hardly seemed fair to the Holds and Craft Halls for them to continuously pay tithes
to the weyrs, when there was no longer any need for them. Unrest, and questions of
whether or not the people of pern should keep on supporting the few weyrs that were
still standing flew through their minds.
But although these questions where being asked, there where no fights, no skirmishes;
just less and less tithes being given. But more startling than that was the fact
that there was less clutches being laid.
Worry was in the forefront of the Dragon Riders minds, and slow resentment flowed
through every one else's. But still they coexisted, still they lived in a cycle of
give and take. That was of course until finally when population pressure and the
improved technology made possible the recolonization of the Southern Continent.
Some of the younger generation, some of the clever, some of the adventurous, and some of
the fearful left to the Southern Continent. Which subsequently led to the rediscovery
of the original settlements along with the creation of brand new ones.
This more than anything led to the deeper exploration of the Western Continent.
And this is where our current plot comes into play. Our Terran Weyr is located on the
oft forgotten Western Continent. Now settling on a new Continent, there is still worry over the small amount of clutches being hatched, and the need for food; because they still needed to adapt to their new environment, to plant and harvest what they needed. And on top of all that there was an old threat on the horizon, it seemed like the short respite from thread was just that, a short respite. Now with the threat of thread falling at any moment, the weyr's once again have become active.
While this game does require some knowledge of the novels, there is a separate(info) thread that gives you everything you need to know about the world of Pern that is pertinent to this game. Hopefully this helps for those who want to take part in this RP, but are not as familiar with the books to feel comfortable playing in it.
We now have three GM's for this game. Woot!
