I came up with a tentative plot, it's just an outline, and there can be more added to it, or taken from it if you all like.

History and Plot

=======================================================================================

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
stil 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 although they where on a new land, they still needed to learn more about the land, to be able to 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.

Well, I am pretty open to the character position, but would love her to ride a dragon as well as occupy a position.  *sigh* But, then don't we all want everything!  Journeywoman harper or healer would be great, one who has impressed would be even better! 

Someone from a farmcraft hold who has been chosen to help establish the new weyr because of her farming background would work, as well as someone from a seacraft hold background who has been chosen because of her fishing history.

Well I would say yes, that your character would be able to have an occupation other than Dragon Rider, while still having impressed a dragon.  But since Dragon Riders live in the weyr, and craftsmen live in a hall, it wouldn't work out all that well.  I'm sorry that you wont be able to have both, but I'm sure you will still be able to have fun in this game.  And oh you can always have your character impress a Dragonette, it's close to having impressed a dragon.

Actually Undiclosed, I have some of the later PERN books and Dragon Riders did actually train with the Halls but they stayed in the Weyrs.

Thank's for the info.  Well if it was in the books, than I'll allow it, but as I suggested in a PM, there's also the option of her character being a

Quote
Weyrsinger: the harper for the Weyr, usually a dragonrider with harper training.Weyrsinger: the harper for the Weyr, usually a dragonrider with harper training.

Which would be cool to:)

Also I want to know how many people are still interested in this game, so if your still interested please reply.

That's great!  I'd like nothing more than if people who love the books join.  Here's to a speedy approval!

Oh and tell me what you think about the info I put up for the western Continent in the Geography section of the info thread.  Do you think I should add more to it?

We now have Five characters!

And this made me notice that we are in need of more men in this game. We have four woman and one man(not including Doreado).

So if there are any men who want to join in this game we would love to have you.

It would appear that, once again, my good friend Paladin has unwittingly involved himself with far too many potentially horny women for his own good.

Therefore, I volunteer myself to be the SECOND male PC in this game.


Please note the following: I once read the Dragonriders novels, but that was WAAAAY back in late elementary and early middle school for me, a dozen years ago.  So I remember very little, other than what's been posted here.

I would, of course, be playing a Dragonrider, probably a straight male Greenrider.

From the wording of the threads, I'm not entirely sure what exactly I need to supply in the profiles...if we can clear that up, I can get started straightaway!
