Welcome
Dalibor is a semi-canon Dragonriders of Pern site. No knowledge of the series or site is required to join; players of all experience levels are welcome here. Founded in 2008 on Proboards and moved to Jcink in 2013, Dalibor has been running for nine years.

News
Autumn, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:

Upcoming Hatchings:
Copper Laanasuth
Copper Zelsk

With two clutches hardening on the Hatching Sands the big question seemed to be: which will hatch first?

The answer came in short order with Copper Zelsk's clutch breaking shell moments before Copper Laanasuth's. With so many eggs surely the dual hatching offers hope to the numerous Candidates who fill Dalibor's ranks. Only time will show who will come away with a lifemate of their very own...

... and who will forfeit their life in hopes of Impression.

 WANTED: Master Harpers & Apprentices!

Hey there Daliborians!

After Boo made a lovely suggestion that we try and do things to encourage Hold play more, I spoke to Ruin about how we might incorporate more into the crafts--namely Harpers! We all know and hopefully love the Harper Hall Trilogy. I for one, have always loved and held a special place for Harpers in my heart. So, the idea was as follows:

There is already a Harper Hall at Western Hold. It has a Craftmaster, who is an NPC, so no need for that. They are NPC but run the Hall. What it does not have in play are Masters or apprentices. Also Journeymen might stay there, at least some! To help out, or what have you. In the books, there are Masters at a Hall that teach a specific section: voice (singing), drums (relaying drum messages, drum instrument), archivist (history of pern), composition (writing music), instrument (making and playing), musical theory (understanding music), dance (obvious, can include defense), and even a head cook, master healer, and headwoman stationed at the Hall! So, my goal is this: get a Master in each section, and hopefully we can get a head cook (obvious), master healer (obvious) and headwoman (watches over apprentices, organizes what the Hall needs, keeps things in order) there too! I offered to make the Voice Master, and so will put up an application. The other roles are as follows, and I'll update this as we get replies--and hopefully I can get some!--of people wanting to play them.

Voice Master - Master Kasteo - Ruriko
Composition Master - ??? - ???
Instrument Master - ??? - ???
Drum Master - ??? - Eric
Dance Master - ??? - ???
Archive Master - ??? - ???
Master Healer - ??? - Harbinger
Head Cook - ??? - ???
Headwoman - ??? - Leo

If we get enough interest, Ruin says staff will make a sub-board at Western for Harper Hall!

Here's the catch: these characters will be HOLD characters. That means they won't have the means to be traveling back and forth to the Weyr or other Holds unless there is an event like a Gather or Hatching, or some big IC plot reason for them to do so. These are made to be played at the Harper Hall, and at Western Hold. I plan to make an apprentice as well, and we definitely need lots of those! They start at 10 and will be apprentices until about 18 earliest, when they walk the tables. It is more reasonable for it to be 19 or 20, and so that is many RL years and IC turns of fun play for these characters. And there is INCENTIVE! Each player who makes a Hold/Hall only character receives ONE FREE CHARACTER SLOT to do so! Isn't that great? What more incentive does one need to make an awesome new character?

Don't forget: just because you have an apprentice who cannot Impress or Bond right now, does not mean they can't once they 1) walk the tables and are Journeymen, and 2) get awesome pets! Apprentices and Masters both can still get firelizards and all the other wonderful creatures that Dalibor has to offer, besides dragons and whers. This is an amazing way to have players branch out and have Western Hold see more play. An awesome way to create new characters doing something different than the riders and handlers and doots do. I really hope you guys are as excited as I am by this prospect, and feel free to PM or hit me up on Discord if you'd like to discuss further. c:

As a side note: this free slot incentive applies to ANY characters made to be specifically played at a Hold. So not just for Western Hold and Harper Hall. So if you make a crafter or character who will be for Crescent Hold, or a character or crafter who is not at Harper Hall for Western Hold, you will still be allotted a free slot to do so, but the same rules apply: this is a Hold character. Unless they are of some major import like a Lord or Lady, they won't have the means to keep traveling between Hold and Weyr save for for events. Dragonriders aren't going to spend their time ferrying people around without cause.

Upon Cap's request, they are also looking for this:

Wanted for: Baria / Western Hold. Bio
Just a handful of folks I've been NPCing/think would be nice to fill out the holder ranks.

Stablemaster - Male, Late twenties, early thirties. Beastcrafter?
- Kind hearted and absolutely appalled that Baria keeps saddling her own runner. He's a gentle man and one eager to help. He doesn't take no for an answer and absolutely adores his Hold and his runners. He knows all their quirks and habits and will talk about them without hesitation.

Head Cook - Female, Mid-thirties, early forties.
- Motherly, which includes being extremely strict. She's had to run Baria out of the kitchens more than once and has no problem standing up to her Lady. She is not a woman to be messed with and rules her kitchens with an iron ladle.

Amazing, guys! That'd be great. I will definitely be tossing an apprentice in there. Honestly, since apprentice is a free slot, too? Come hither, Daliborians! This will be a lot of fun, I promise! ^~^

Yay! Can't wait to see him, Eric! c: Five spots left, four if you don't include Head Cook! Then we can hopefully see about getting people to make some apprentices! 8'D
