Autumn, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Copper Laanasuth
Copper Zelsk

Upcoming Hatchings:
Red Cereza
Green Quince

Wedding bells ring out to celebrate the joining of Lord Callum to Lady Shuli. A grand gather has been put together with people from all over Pern coming to celebrate! Crescent is full to the brim with those who wish to show their support and those just looking to make (or spend) a few marks!

Copper Zelsk shook things up at the Copper Class graduation feast by beginning her run shortly after the knots were delivered to her handler. Bronze Osk won Zelsk's maiden run and now a sizable clutch lays on the sands hardening. Not to be outdone by the ground-bound copper, Copper Laanasuth took to the skies the very next day - though her flight was not as cut and dry as the wher's run had been. Offended by the force catch attempt of a presumptuous burgundy Laanasuth betweened to High Reaches Weyr where one of their dragons won her flight. Though she has returned to Dalibor and laid a large clutch for Dalibor's candidates the Weyr awaits the transfer of the dragon sire and his rider, Dalibor's newest Junior Weyrleader.

Leadership positions are not determined solely by color however the following constraints are in place for Wingleader and Wingsecond positions:

Wingleaders:
Upper Flight - 44 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes)
Middle Flight - 37 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples)
Lower Flight - 28 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples, Yellows, Blues, Cyans, Burgundys, Some Greens)

Wingleaders should have Wingsecond backgrounds.

Wingseconds:
Upper Flight - 37 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples)
Middle Flight - 28 ft+ (Irons, Bronzes, Browns, Viridians, Purples, Yellows, Blues, Cyans, Burgundys, Some Greens)
Lower Flight - 18 ft+ (All dragons except Greys and most Whites)

Wingseconds are rarely picked fresh out of weyrlinghood.

All positions require player activity - if you cannot be active and available for plots, lessons, etc then it is unlikely your character will be picked over another who is. There are activity requirements listed below for the various ranks.

All positions have age considerations in place. For instance if two riders apply for a Wingsecond position who are both eligible but one has far more turns under their belt it is likely they will be picked over the younger applicant. No riders or handlers below 16 should apply.

Candidate, wherling, and weyrlingmasters are teachers of the next set of Dalibor's hopefuls and newly Impressed. Please be aware that only the most reliable Riders and Handlers will be chosen for these positions. These should be riders and/or handlers who are mature and have been bonded and graduated for 10+ turns. OOCly, these positions require the most activity from the member applying.

Applying does not guarantee that you will receive a position as soon as it becomes available, or ever; it depends upon the suitability of the character and the nature of the opening. Positions may be offered to characters who are not signed up for various reasons, but we greatly prefer people to officially apply. We do very much enjoy spreading the love around in terms of rank!

Activity Requirements

As of April 1, 2017, the following activity requirements are in place for leadership ranks. Characters holding specific ranks will need to meet these requirements to retain their rank. All of the below numbers are for a given activity period (the space of time between one activity check and the next, which is 6 months) and must span at least 2 of the 6 months.

Weyrwoman/Weyrleader (Jr & Sr) 6 posts
Alphahandler/Betahandler 6 posts
Weyrling-/Wherling-/Candidatemaster 6 posts
Wingleader/Prideleader 4 posts
Wingsecond/Pridesecond 4 posts
Lord/Lady Holder 4 posts

The above requirements will be reviewed each activity check. Members will be asked in their Activity Check post to include links to the correct number of posts. Failure to link the required number of posts falling within the span outlined above will result in the character being removed from that rank.

An officially posted hiatus will be accepted in place of ONE of a character's required posts.

Multi-character posts (i.e. posting multiple characters in the same post in hatchings, plots, feasts, etc) will count for each character included IF the character's section of the post is at least 150 words long.

Any post or partial post of sufficient length will count towards the number of posts needed to meet activity. However, players of characters in any leadership position are expected to post as needed by their role (for example, if tagged in a plot or event for a leadership reason).

Weyrlingmasters and wherlingmasters are expected to post one lesson per season, while attached to a class. Candidatemasters between each other are expected to post one lesson OR candidate-based activity per season. These roles are critical in welcoming new members (who often begin with one or more candidates, who then become weyrlings and wherlings) and providing these characters with easily accessible places to explore and demonstrate what they're like and how they act.

If a player's character is consistently not meeting these expectations, staff reserves the right to remove the character's rank as has been necessary in the past.

Posting proof of meeting activity requirements for a role in an activity check will earn 50 marks per role met. Weyrlingmasters and wherlingmasters with a class who post a lesson for each season plus the graduation on time will receive a 300-mark completion bonus at their class's graduation. Weyrlingmasters and wherlingmasters receive classes on rotation to spread the wealth.

EXAMPLE OF MEETING REQUIREMENTS
*

Period: April 1-Oct 1

Bennio, Jr Weyrwoman - 6 posts required

Bennio attends the senior queen's next hatching (April). She posts twice.
Bennio dances at the hatching feast (Also April). She posts once.
Bennio has a quiet picnic lunch by the lake (June). She posts three times.

The post count requirements for Bennio are now met. However, if there's also a plot in September and someone goes BENNIO, HELP I NEED YOU, the player still needs to hit the plot if at all possible.

Character & Bonded: Janora & Burgundy Falkreath
Ages: 33 & 10
Current Rank: Wingsecond (NPCly)
Applying for Rank: Wingleader

Qualifications/Why?: Janora and Falkreath have spent many turns bettering themselves. Falkreath, a dragonet that was once considered violent and unreliable, has come so far since weyrlinghood. He has learned the value of respect, and honor, and seeks to look after those whom need him. The pair are always eager to take on more responsibility, having become a pair of workaholics that pride themselves on both efficiency and timeliness. While neither are the most social of creatures, there is no doubting that their top priority is their wingmates (both old and new). Janora and Falkreath have an open-door policy for those that require their aid. The burgundyrider and her dragon know sacrifice, and have experienced loss. They are not estranged to the fact that sometimes the right thing to do is, in fact, the hardest. They will never let another suffer unduly, even if that requires shouldering the burden themselves. Janora, since having impressed, can imagine nothing else but serving her Weyr. Falkreath and she have an undying loyalty for the Weyrleadership, which to them involves going above and beyond the call of duty.
