Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Red Ingoth

Upcoming Hatchings:

Winter is in full swing as the Northwest reaches the middle stages of the cold month, and Dalibor, taking full advantage of a crackdust filled break in Threadfall, is back at it again. Delving into the Southern ice and snow, they have paired with Grove Weyr to fully explore the lands they only slightly uncovered the previous turn during the Jungle Expedition. This, however, will not be a warm and relaxing waltz through the woods; although was it ever that to begin with?

Sipping her single, evening cup of wine, Jali looked around the dining hall in quiet thought. There wouldn't be a time where more people were gathered than now, save for at an official feast. Evening meal was second best, but still good.

It would have to do. She knew that some people had heard rumors, and some had heard more than rumors, and some had heard nothing at all. Leaving it for much longer would only hurt the Weyr, and they'd finally settled enough details that it could be made public. It would settle some rumors. And, Jali reflected wryly as she sipped again from her wine cup, start others; that was the way it worked.

Setting down her cup, she stood, clearing her throat and raising her voice to be heard over the usual evening-meal rumble of talk. "Excuse me. If I could have your attention briefly? Thank you."

When it was as quiet as it was going to get, Jali smiled softly, looking around at those present who were just finishing their days, and those who were just starting them. "We have some exciting news from the Weyrs and Holds of Pern. Dalibor is no longer going to be the youngest Weyr, nor Crescent and Western the newest Holds." She rubbed her fingertips against the tabletop in front of her. "Weyrwoman Padka of gold Fierranath, and Ng'ambu of bronze Veribath, from Bay Weyr, are working to found a new Weyr that they've named Grove Weyr, deep in the Southern Continent. Any riders or handlers who have expressed interest in going, are allowed to; this is true of all the Weyrs. So we will, briefly, have fewer faces coming and going at Dalibor."

"However," she added quickly, "the longer established Weyrs recognize that Dalibor will be left understrength by this. We will be receiving transfers, probably come early Spring, to help bolster our ranks with more seasoned riders."

"Grove Weyr will initially support two major Holds - Skerry Hold is, I believe, already as established as a Hold can be after a single season. The second is still in nascent stages, but I am afraid to say that we will be saying farewell to our own Irohvyne of yellow Valeath, as she is its founder." Seeking out the face she wanted out of the crowd, she nodded softly to the yellowrider. "Dalibor has pledged its assistance, as far normal duties here at home allow, in bringing in supplies and getting adequate shelter in place for Threadfall. It is, of course, a Turn-round threat in the South."

"If you have any questions, I encourage you to bring them to us. I know that personally, I will answer them as well as I am able. We will also be recording all of this in our Weyr's records, and updating available maps accordingly." The copperrider smiled gently. "Thank you for your attention. Enjoy the rest of your meals."

((OOC Notes:

- Grove Weyr, Skerry Hold and Tuana Hold are NPC, like all other non-Western Continent Weyrs and Holds. Their complete information has been added to the Weyrs and Holds information in the library.
- The map including Grove, Skerry and Tuana is available in the maps thread in the library.
- Transfers into Dalibor will include those from this new contest!

It had been Jali's project, something the older woman had been working towards. Rayna rather approved of the whole venture, it had been something the Weyrwoman thought might even take some of the attention from Dalibor. Honestly, Rayna was sick and tired of attention. The sooner the older Weyrs had someone else to fight over and scrutinise the better. Rayna sat in the Dining Hall carefully picking at her meal. Well, perhaps it wasn't the best thing. With all the transfers to the new Weyr, Dalibor would be left understrength. People would be concerned and with that concern might come dissent amongst the ranks.

Yet she would not stop anyone from leaving if they truly wished to do so. It might mean some forced transfers from other Weyrs which was never a good thing but it was better that than nothing. Rayna raised her gaze as Jali stood. She had known the copperrider planned to deliver the message at some point but had rather wished there might have been a more opportune moment. The gold rider lowered her food and listened as Jali announced the new Weyr and Holds. Irohvyne would be pleased to be given the opportunity to build something from scratch and, of course, they would be there to assist as they had for so long.

Rayna approached the other Weyrwoman as she finished speaking.
"I don't think I properly congratulated you on this undertaking. It is quite something you have been able to contribute to."
Rayna paused for a moment, "Perhaps it will even serve to stop certain interested parties from paying so much attention to our own humble Weyr."

She raised an eyebrow, "At least they know they'll have a strong ally in us."
Dalibor knew what it was like being the newest Weyr in Pern. They knew what would help.

While most of the Dragonriders were eating their evening meal, Tarele was having his first meal after sleeping considering the fact that he would be spending the night patrolling while most of the Weyr was sleeping. For once his five firelizards was with him, if only for the easy food especially when it came to the Pridesecond’s Blue firelizard. He sat eating his meal not speaking much of anything until Jali’s announcement which certainly caught his attention.

At least now Dalibor Weyr and Crescent Hold were the second youngest Weyr and Hold presently with the Hold becoming the third youngest Hold seeming to be following not long after. Though returning to the continent of his birth was a tantalizing prospect he had made a life for himself here and he had a great deal of obligations here his position as a Pridesecond being chief among them. He wasn’t prepared or willing, therefore, to leave Dalibor Weyr yet though he did appreciate the announcement about the construction of new Weyr and Holds though he didn’t know enough about either public speaking or Jali herself to really tell the quality of the speech. He clapped for a bit though no longer than he felt necessary before turning his attention back to his meal.

Unfortunately, it didn't seem like there would be any more opportune moment, not if she wanted to give people an adequate heads-up - the Weyrs of Pern had an incredibly active rumor mill, which was to be expected when you had hundreds of giant telepathic lizards talking to each other within and between Weyrs. Secrets didn't stay secret easily. And a new Weyr, and new Holds beholden to it, weren't really secret, given the number of people (and giant telepathic lizards) going to them.

'Lizard' is an insulting word to use for us. We aren't tunnelsnakes.

Jali smiled slightly, unrepentantly amused at the chance to yank her mindmate's chain. Do you have a better one?

Oh, I don't know. Maybe 'dragons'?

Feeling the urge to snicker - because Laanasuth's tone was laced with sarcasm - Jali masked it with a sip from her cup. Snickering would have been inappropriate, and she tried to save the not-correct-for-public behaviors for her personal weyr. Sure, but where's the fun in that?

The only response was a mental sigh. She'd chalk that up as a victory.

She smiled at Rayna, nodding. "It is quite something for all of us. And if things go well down there, perhaps they'll continue to expand in the south. There is plenty of land there." Although the coast of the Southern Continent was well-settled, further inland was not so much, favoring large bodies of water like lakes or major rivers. And no one had ever successfully mapped all of the Southern Continent; they weren't even sure exactly how big it was.

"That is my hope, too. At the very least, it will be a distraction for the main continent while they get established. Being new is never easy." She sighed, thinking of her first turn or two at Dalibor. The distrust, the hard work, the loneliness. The troubles she'd seen; the attack on Laanasuth's eggs chief of those on her mind at the moment. Shaking her head a little, Jali smiled again. "But, it is often necessary. We change with the times, or fall behind them."
