Welcome!

Congratulations on Impressing here at Southern Weyr! We are so excited to have you! First things first, make sure to check out the Impression Day info to find out about OOC setup and get an idea what your character's first couple days of weyrlinghood are like.

Weyrlinghood will last 9 RL weeks, and is very much a "build your own" experience. Your weyrlingmasters and staff will be here to steer things, but it's up to you to make the most of it. :) You are all empowered to grab another weyrling and play an NPC weyrlingmaster for your own scenes! You will probably catch your WLM staff offering lessons, or even just generally setting themselves RP_OK, but we are going to be looking for you guys for what you want to RP.

Below you'll find the general schedule.

Week One

Summary

In the first lesson of weyrlinghood, the focus is entirely on getting to know your dragon while keeping him or her well-fed and well-oiled. Simplicity is the order of the day: you will be provided with a few sets of clothes, all the same uniform of a green shirt and black pants. All the riders will have to cut their hair to no longer than shoulder length, and will be required to keep it trimmed from here on until they move into their own weyrs. For the first bit, you weyrlings will only be allowed where your little dragonets can walk to.

This does not mean you are limited to the Training Grounds. But this does mean that you are limited to the realistic areas that a small dragonet can reach in any of the outside rooms.

The reason for this restriction is two-fold: on the one hand, you and your dragon can explore each others' minds in relative peace, and get to know your clutchmates (with whom you'll be going through a whole lot over the next Turn). On the other hand, baby dragons are notoriously bad at keeping their emotions and voices to themselves, and hearing dragon thoughts or experiencing all the emotions of a clutch can be a rather intimidating experience for an innocent bystander.

  • You will be cutting up an awful lot of meat (provided to you in the barracks), going through jar after jar of oil (also provided), and washing your little lifemates whenever they need it. There is actually a bathing pool in the barracks, so enjoy that luxury.
  • Young dragonets often relieve themselves in their couches, and it's up to you to clean up after them. You might also want to train them early to use the midden piles in the bowl.
  • Your food is being brought to you in the barracks, and it sure doesn't include alcohol or other sorts of drugs. Your little lifemates might think you're dead if your brain goes all wonky and between themselves away before you have a chance to stop them, otherwise.
  • You've got a whole other brain linked up to yours. This hardly means you have time to pursue romantic relationships, and they are indeed forbidden.
  • You and your dragon are real close, and that's never been the case before. It's going to be hard to differentiate who's got a sore muscle, or who's hungry, or anything like that, for the first little while. Play with it. There's also a wealth of creative RP available when you consider how a mindlink will affect your character; have fun with things like sleep patterns, speech patterns, eating habits, etc.

RP Suggestions

  • Feeding your dragon. This involves a lot of slicing and dicing of nasty parts
  • Bathing, oiling, and scratching your dragon
  • Get to know your clutchmates - find out their dreams and aspirations. Get to know the new dragons and how they fit with their new lifemates.
  • Adjust to sharing your mind. Talk to older riders and your clutchmates about the experience. Also, a lack of sleep.
  • Deal with having to keep your emotions tightly under control.
  • Keep your barracks clean and make them feel like home.
  • Get fitted for your uniform.
  • Deal with newly hatched draconic clumsiness and fascination with their new world.
  • Come to terms with your new rank and future. Some may be dealing with a dream realized, or a dream lost.

Milestones

  • You're a rider! This means new privileges and new responsibilities.
  • First classes.

Restrictions

  • No high emotion.
  • No sexual relationships.
  • No drinking.
  • Only weyrling staff, weyr leadership, and members of the mentor Wing may enter the barracks.
  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Must be physically with your dragon at all times (therefore, limited to area your dragon can reach by foot).

WLM Guide

The weyrlingmasters are charged with guiding the newly-impressed in their new lives. For this week, weyrlingmasters will simply be seeing to the meat and oil supplies in the barracks, supervising the daily care of the dragons where they feel it is necessary, and answering any questions the weyrlings may have as best they are able.

Week Two

Theory Lecture: Controling Your Mindlink
Lecture: Responsibilities of a Rider
Lessons: Firestone

Summary

Your dragons continue to grow like weeds, but there won't be a whole lot of difference in the physical care you will be providing for them. You're still cutting meat up for them, oiling them, bathing them, and mucking out their couches (or nagging them to start using the midden piles out at the edge of the training grounds).

However, now that they're older and wiser, you have a little more freedom of mobility. They will probably have the stamina to venture as far as the Clearing (just past the Weyr Entrance), but note that this is a long walk and you won't be able to stay there for very long - or conversely may get stuck there if your lifemate decides they need a nap before returning! Bath times are still held in the Weyrling Barracks themselves.

RP Suggestions

  • Feeding, cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon. Your lifemate is still the first priority — they are still babies with the associated concerns!
  • Keep your barracks clean. At this point, the weyrfolk that have been helping keeping the barracks clean are free of their duties… so it is entirely up to the weyrlings to keep things in order. Twice-daily inspections, guys. TWICE. DAILY.
  • Keep the training grounds clear. Weyrling chores will now span outwards to include the training grounds and the training pens: these hard labor chores are designed to work with the PT you are now doing!
  • Work on controlling the mindlink. Make it work for you. Decide how much privacy you need, and how much access your lifemate can have. Balance that with what they need. Learn to feel emotion and not share it entirely with your dragon. Remember: you are still on emotional 'lockdown' until your lifemate is old enough to handle it.
  • Learn to 'see' and 'hear' through your dragon. Differentiate between what you sense and what they sense.
  • Exercise — it's mandatory starting this week! Have fun chasing the AWLMS in long runs around the bowl; at first it will be without your lifemates, but eventually they too will have the stamina to hoof it around Southern.
  • Run errands for a grounded rider or discuss how you feel seeing riders who are seriously injured. Learn how to mute your own distress since your dragon needs you to stay level-headed.
  • Spend time with the tanners: you'll be getting introductory lessons in leather quality, since next week you will be putting together your first set of straps!

Milestones

  • Chores begin! Get used to 'em.

Restrictions

  • No high emotion.
  • No sexual relationships.
  • No drinking.
  • Only weyrling staff, weyr leadership, and members of the mentor wing may enter the barracks.
  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Some dragons will be able to be on their own for short periods of time. This will vary from dragon to dragon.

Although the vast majority of your time should still be spent with your dragon, you may now go for brief visits into the caverns for a bite to eat or a bath. Remember, though, that if your dragon becomes panicked or worried, it's your duty to come right back out and see to them. No klah-sipping just yet.

The mind link should be a bit more normal to you now, and the weyrlingmasters will begin running you and your lifemate through exercises to help strengthen it. These will include things like communicating to your dragon non-verbally (until now, most of you probably will have been speaking to them out loud), having your dragon relay messages from another rider to you (by communicating with the other rider's dragon), blindfolding yourself and having your dragon be your eyes and guide you around based on what they see, etc.

WLM Guide

Apart from trying to answer probably-individualised questions about dragons that have no generic answer, the weyrlingmasters will be running through mindlink exercises with the newly-impressed pairs this week. It is the weyrlingmasters' duty to make sure that these exercises don't result in a mini-dragon freak-out, and that the more physical ones (i.e., the blindfold exercise) are done in a safe environment. Stubbed toes are one thing, broken legs are quite another.

  • The weyrlingmaster's job is to make sure that the exercises are understood before they begin. Make sure that everyone knows what's happening OOCly before proceeding ICly, so that all players involved can participate fully.
  • If you can come up with more exercises than those listed above, great! Just keep in mind that the dragons are only a month old, and even some of the stuff listed above will be pretty difficult; they probably aren't going to be playing mental chess with their riders just yet. Some simpler exercises than those listed above might be even better, and feel free to stick them up on the wiki.

Week Three

Lesson: Straps
Lesson: Firestone - Bagging and Tossing

Summary

From candidacy, you should be versed in the rudiments of sewing; this is your time to hone that skill, since you will be hand-sewing your first set of straps! The weyr will provide a gross lot of cured leather, but it is your responsibility to wade through and find the best pieces. Pick strips that are strong with no imperfections. There will be tanners and experienced dragonriders around to help!

Now that you are familiar with the strenuous nature of PT, it's time to up the ante: along with the long cardio runs and stretching exercises, weight-bearing exercises will be incorporated this week, and for the first time, your dragon will be encouraged to join in with your basic calisthenics. Very soon you will be riding them around the bowl, so it's imperative that they are strong enough to bear your weight! Some of this weight-bearing exercise will come from learning how to grade and pack firestone bags: you will have your first firestone-throwing exercises amongst your fellow junior weyrlings this week, in preparation for next week, where you will experience working your first threadfall.

You will find that your dragons are now growing big enough to take the long walk to the beach, though some of them may require a rest in the clearing to get there. Enjoy experiencing their first reaction to the sea!

RP Suggestions

  • Feeding, cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon.
  • Keep your barracks clean.
  • Excercise.
  • Chores.
  • Enjoy some time separate from your dragon now that you're not attached at the hip.
  • Firestone. Lots and lots of firestone. Sort it, bag it, toss it - and complain about the sore muscles!
  • Now that training has started in earnest, talk to your fellow weyrlings, weyrlingstaff, mentors, or older riders about the changes in your life. How do you feel about the routine? About the things to come?
  • Attend your first Fall, from a distance.
  • Responsibility: The junior weyrlings are still responsible for keeping the training grounds and weyrling barracks clean - and will start having structured chores after morning PT. With your dragons a little bigger, the smart weyrlings will have learned to take their dragonets to the midden piles to "do their business," but - for those that haven't - there's still plenty of turds.
  • Class: Firestone grading!

Milestones

  • Strap making.
  • Firestone bagging and tossing begins.

Restrictions

  • No high emotion.
  • No sexual relationships.
  • No drinking.
  • Only weyrling staff, weyr leadership, and members of the mentor wing may enter the barracks.
  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Most dragons and riders can be apart for longer now. Though you are still limited to the confines of the Weyr.

WLM Guide

The weyrlingmasters will still be assisting with bond-forming exercises between riders and dragons, basic feeding and oiling advice and inspection, and fielding any questions the newly-bonded have. As for straps, weyrlingmasters will be in charge of helping weyrlings select proper leather and overseeing the actual leatherworking.

Weyrlingmasters will also be there to offer practical assistance with getting the dragon used to the idea of wearing straps, and inspecting dragon hide to be sure the straps aren't rubbing in harmful ways.

Week Four

Theory Lecture: Foundations of Formations.
Lesson: Flamethrowers & Groundcrew

Summary

Training now starts in earnest… for your lifemate. You and your dragon will be doing lots of exercises to help build dragon muscles. Lots of running around the bowl, playing in the water, continuation of calisthenics… at a far higher rate than last week! But be careful: the weyrlingmasters and dragonhealers are definitely monitoring all the dragonets closely to prevent strain, overwork and injury.

Your dragon should have grown through their first set of straps by the end of this week: you will be given the option to stitch "extender" straps for this set, but if you mess them up, you will be stitching full replacement straps from here on out! Be sure you're adjusting the dragon's straps to accommodate for growth, or fixing any spots that are rubbing when the dragon is in motion, or that look weak. This is the time for fine-tuning these things before life and limb begin to depend on them!

You are learning ground formations, but beyond that, the weyrlingmasters will encourage you to ride your lifemates for as far as their endurance keeps — but still no flying. Sorry. Sorry again. And still no alcohol, sex, or anything like that. Real sorry.

RP Suggestions

  • Feeding, cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon.
  • Keep your barracks clean.
  • Exercise.
  • Chores.
  • Ride your dragon for the first time - like a runner, still grounded! Careful — they're likely still clumsy.
  • Attend your first ground drills. Discuss how they went with fellow weyrlings and weyrlingstaff. Do you like formations? Hate them?
  • Begin looking toward the time when your dragon can fly. Are you excited? Scared? Nervous?
  • Your lifemates are finally starting to grow up — you can relax your guarded emotions now. Let yourself get angry or happy more easily.
  • Responsibility: Chores around the weyr.
  • Responsibility: This week, you start working ground crew for threadfalls directly over the Weyr.

Milestones

  • Mounting your dragon.
  • First drills.
  • Learning to obey drill commands through your lifemate, and learning physical hand-signals in case your dragon is incapacitated. For this week, the weyrlingmasters will be running drills.

Restrictions

  • No sexual relationships.
  • No drinking.
  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Your dragon is much more emotionally stable. The real test will be your first ground crewing of threadfall, without the blanketing affect of the weyrlingmaster staff to take the edge off of the pain slippage. Even still, you will notice that your lifemates will take this with far more grace!

WLM Guide

Weyrlingmasters will be leading some of the strength-building drills, for both riders and dragons. They will also be checking the straps (even if the weyrling pair seems to be having no trouble) to be sure everyone's set for this week's mounted riding.
For the first attempt, the WLMs will be collecting small groups of weyrlings (two to four) and having them take turns mounting their dragons and then going for a little strut around the bowl.

Week Five

Theory Lecture: Basic Formations.

Summary

Flying dragonets must be accompanied by a WLM's dragon for this week. They should never leave your sight when in the air, so keep them on an invisible leash. Everyday, you should be out in the bowl with your dragon while he or she practices flying. This will phase out wing exercises and stretching.

Once they are approved for flight, they are automatically approved for first hunts — but as between is still not there — you'll still be cleaning up after any dragons that are too stubborn to use the midden piles.

RP Suggestions

  • Cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon.
  • Exercise.
  • Chores.
  • This week, your dragon flies for the first time!
  • How is your dragon reacting to being able to fly? How is your relationship progressing? Are you antagnozing each other, supporting each other? How are your fellow weyrlings adjusting? Mounted flight is soon!
  • Complain about memorizing formations. Or talk about how much you enjoy it!
  • Take your dragon for his or her first hunt, and rejoice in no longer having to slice meat!
  • Get fitted for your first leathers, now that mounted flight is close.
  • Everyone will have the chance to test themselves out as Wingleader and Wingsecond while practicing formations. This is the perfect opportunity to see how your character would respond to being in one of these positions in the weyrling wing!
  • Responsibility: Chores around the weyr.
  • Responsibility: Bagging and passing firestone to Sr. Weyrlings during Fall (ground only, only in over-the-weyr thread).

Milestones

  • Some drills are now run by weyrlings chosen by the weyrlingstaff.
  • First unmanned flight!
  • First hunt!

Restrictions

  • No sexual relationships.
  • No drinking.
  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.

WLM Guide

The weyrlingmaster side is pretty basic.

  • Only one dragon in the air at a time for the first flight. You'll probably want the WLM dragon airborne with them to demonstrate take-off and landing.
  • If you have time, maybe demonstrated take-off and landing once before anyone goes up, and then fly with each individually.

Week Six

Theory Lecture: Advanced Formations.

Summary

For this entire week, flying will be restricted to the Weyr only (the furthest locations being the River Cliffs and the Cove!) However, generally speaking, you can fly as far as your dragon can handle. Everyone will continue to switch Wingleader and Wingsecond position in ground formations.

You're ALMOST free of the barracks, as you get your weyrs as soon as your dragon is cleared for flying. (OOC: You will be cleared via code and have a weyr built for you whether or not you RP the flying lesson. Feel free to assume that, in the couple of off-camera days after your first flying lesson, you're cleared for unsupervised flying.) Until then, you are still limited to the strictures of the previous weeks. It's the last grind towards the most basic freedoms!

RP Suggestions

  • Cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon.
  • Exercise.
  • Chores.
  • Memorize formations.
  • First Manned Flight! Grab a weyrlingmaster (or an NPC) and some weyrlings and get off the ground. Make the most of it! How do you feel about it? Your dragon?
  • Get out there and play with your mentor Wing. Have them take you in small groups (or on your own) for flights so you can get used to it.
  • Start checking those empty weyrs out, because everyone will soon be free of the weyrling barracks!
  • Scrounge through the storerooms for some decent furniture.
  • Drill start in earnest. Is it exciting or frightening? Do you feel more like a real rider now?
  • Go out and practice firestone tossing (on the ground) or flying in formation with your group. Talk to your friends or weyrlingstaff about your partners. How do you feel about those partnered with you? How are your mini-drills with them going?
  • Responsibility: Chores around the weyr.
  • Responsibility: Bagging and passing firestone to Sr. Weyrlings during Fall.

Milestones

  • You finally get to fly with your dragon! They will be very short flights at first, that will slowly get longer over the course of the week.
  • Drills become "real" for the first time. Toward the end of the training, you'll be flying drills similar to those of full riders.
  • At the end of this week, you get your own weyr… and graduate to senior weyrlings!
  • Relationship and alcohol restrictions still exist until you graduate to senior weyrlings.

Restrictions

  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Must be accompanied by a member of weyrlingstaff or their mentor Wing whenever flying.
  • No alcohol, no sex - until you move into your own weyr, anyway. At that point, all bets are off.

WLM Guide

  • There's a variety of lessons to choose from. The first mounted flight is always a favourite, but you don't have to limit your practices to this. Try firestone sack tossing, lift-off and landing drills in formation, small-group flight drills… be creative!
  • Be sure to get those 'lings stretching before and after flight. No point in straining those muscles more than required.
  • Dragons flying together will be at the end of the week only. Throughout the course of the week, 'lings will have to work on control in the air.
  • ICly, each 'ling will have to be approved separately before being allowed to go up with their clutchsibs.

Week Seven

Theory Lecture: Betweening.
Lesson: Betweening Practice Part I.
Lesson: Chewing Firestone and Producing Flame

Summary

This week, you will be learning how to go between!

It's time to pump… you up! To put some muscle on you weak little weyrlings, this week, you’ll be bagging firestone and tossing it around.. IN THE AIR. Hope you are good at catching!

Now that you are OFFICIALLY senior weyrlings, that means you OFFICIALLY have no restrictions as alcohol and sex go!

RP Suggestions

  • Cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon.
  • Exercise.
  • Chores.
  • Weyrwarming parties.
  • Mini-drills and full drills.
  • Going between starts to become a reality as you dig into the theory lessons, and there are a lot of horror stories told about weyrlings-gone-wrong. Discuss the possibility that someone from your class might die in the next lesson with your clutchmates, your dragons, or older riders. Get ready, because you between this week!
  • You're starting to talk about Threadfall in earnest. How do your clutchmates feel about this? Your lifemate? Some older riders may have good advice.
  • Fly mini-drills. How are they going? How do you feel about the others in your group? How do things go when the whole class flies together?
  • Watch as your dragon produces his or her first flame! And don't forget to clean up after. Dragons store ash in a separate sac near their stomach, then disgorge the leftover ash when done flying. It's not pretty, but it is necessary. Make sure they don't just regurgitate, then swallow. It's leftover sulfur. Too much, and they're going to be very sick dragons.
  • Responsibility: Chores around the weyr.

Milestones

  • First flame!
  • First betwen!
  • No restrictions, finally!

Restrictions

  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Use caution if indulging in sexual activity and alcohol use.

WLM Guide

  • With weyrling wingleader and wingseconds, supervision of formation drills and the like will be shared. Any minor issues should be addressed by the wingleader/wingseconds - let them try and sort it out as part of their training. Of course, safety issues or things needing immediate attention should be mentioned. And don't be afraid to correct a wingleader/wingsecond during drills - we're all in this to learn together.
  • Chances are only the more experienced AWLMs will be leading the first betweening drills
  • Make sure the lessons are one-on-one. This is no time for getting lost in the group!
  • Before a dragon may try to go between, make sure they can take a location from your dragon's mind, and pass it back in a way that is satisfactory for a trip between
  • Feel free to quiz them on places they should already know by now (like above the northeastern bowl)
  • Start easy, go bigger. Maybe between from above the barracks to above the central bowl.
  • Once they can do the places they know, try the hold, and then other, farther coordinates
  • Only once they've proved themselves can weyrlings start going between as a group, and all betweening this week must be under AWLM supervision!

Week Eight

Theory Lecture: Politics of Pern..
Theory Lecture: Mating Flights
Lesson: Betweening Practice Part II.
Lesson: Betweening drills.

Summary

You are doing airborne Wing formations under your weyrling Wingleader, as well as with WLM staff. Sometimes it will be small group formation, other times it will be everyone.

Once you're comfortable going between, and before you start your scavenger hunt over Pern, you'll start being assigned to ferrying duties for important non-rider folk. Again, some may get to this point sooner than others.

Don't forget firestone tossing.

And, this week, you'll get a lecture on mating Flights. Make of that what you will.

RP Suggestions

  • Cleaning, bathing, oiling your dragon.
  • Exercise.
  • Chores.
  • Memorize formations.
  • Mini-drills and drills.
  • Get out there with those dyed ropes and see how you fare in your first mock threadfall!
  • This week will include a scavenger hunt around Pern, now that you can all between! What goes into THAT is politics, which will be the central theme of the week.
  • Share information on what you know about who's who on Pern. Get the juicy gossip from weyrlings, crafters, and older riders who know important people in other areas.
  • Practice betweening in formation with your various groups.

Milestones

  • You are now free to visit Pern as dragonriders-to-be!

Restrictions

  • Uniform of green and black to be worn at all times.
  • Must be accompanied by a full rider outside the Weyr if not in your scavenger hunt 'team'.
  • Use caution if indulging in sexual activity and alcohol use.

WLM Guide

  • Assisting with mock threadfall… otherwise we get to be lazy this week!

Week Nine

Lesson: Sweeps.
Lecture: Diseases and Conditions of the Dragonrider

Summary

This week heralds the END of weyrlinghood. Enjoy your new freedom however you please… but remember that you're now expected to represent the weyr as a rider. How's that fit in?

You are still doing airborne wing formations under your wingleaders as well as with WLM staff. Sometimes it’ll be small group formation, other times it’ll be everyone. You'll also be participating in a full, live Threadfall prior to graduation. Be afraid?

RP Suggestions

  • Attend your first Fall in earnest. Was it what you expected? How do you feel about those who got injured?
  • Play taxi to a visiting dignitary or relative. This may be a fun time to plan an event for one of the crafts or holds!
  • Visit round Pern, now that you can do it alone. Grab some weyrfolk or crafters and take them with you.
  • Start to think about the future. What rank do you aspire to? What rank does your dragon aspire to? What wing might fit you?
  • Responsibility: Fly as a Sr. Weyrling. You'll begin to deliver firestone to riders during Fall. This is considered to be more dangerous than actually flying Fall, and many will receive their first scores here.
  • Responsibility: Play taxi whenever weyrleadership requests it.

Milestones

  • No more chores!
  • First real threadfall.
  • Now expected to behave as a full rider in preparation for promotion.
  • Sweeps begin once a sevenday with a partner, until you are tapped into a fighting wing!

Restrictions

  • None! You're free, with the same rules as a full rider.
