SW Plot: Perfect Storm - sw_byoa_storm

This plot has concluded! Thank you to everyone who participated!

Thanks to everyone who took part in this plot!

Stay tuned to our Area Plot Page for upcoming plots!


Welcome to Southern Weyr's plot pages for our Perfect Storm plot!

A "perfect storm" happens when a rare combination of factors all come together and bring about an extreme situation. At Southern Weyr, it starts with a real storm and unusually high tides - but that's only the beginning, and Southern will be facing challenges it's never seen before.

This plot will run during February-March 2018, and is a "bring your own adventure" style plot. How it turns out will depend on the direction that players want to take it - but expect the unexpected, and a touch of mystery! There 's scope for new characters including plot adoptables - see under the 'Characters' button above - and lots of opportunity for existing characters to get involved.

Staff are here to facilitate RP and help however players need us to! We encourage you to send to *gossip if you feel that your RPs will be something known, and to @mail *sws if you wish us to include something specific in our weekly up-date mails.

If you have comments, suggestions, ideas, directions you want to take the plot, please @send *sws or page N'iel, R'zel or Vani,

Current RP Hooks

This plot has concluded, though its impact may still be felt in relations between the Weyr and Black Rock, and the fact that there's still a large pile of rocks outside the Hatching Grounds!
