The attempts to eradicate thread have proven successful, and the dragonriders of the past have gone down in the histories as forever ridding Pern of it's mightiest foe. However, they're also the reason for something much worse. While the planet had been saved from Thread, the change made t the red star's orbit has drastically affected the world in a terrifying way. Pern sunk into an ice age, of sorts, and all of that can be beautifully blamed on those brave women and men who destroyed Thread.
The world is cold. Dragons had shrunk to adapt to the change over the turns, the behemoths of the old days are no more. Colors sprang up eventually, new colors that were far more adaptable to this barren, freezing planet. Technology is scarce, the information provided by AIVAS lost throughout the turns as Holds, Halls and Weyrs had to close their doors, abandon their buildings and band together in Weyrholds. A clever disease wrecked through the dragonriders, and those that were sent out into the cold didn't always get the satisfaction of dying right away.
Outside of the Weyrholds are the Outlanders, bands of once disease ridden individuals who managed to survive and thrive out in the harsh landscape of Pern. The Outlanders are a dangerous threat, they're unpredictable and move surprisingly fluid amongst themselves. They strike periodically at the Weyrholds for supplies, raiding whatever they can.
At Badlands, arguably the most well-off Weyrhold of this new Pern, the Senior Queen is egg heavy with a new clutch, but more interestingly is the batch of riders that are claiming they're from the future. They're saying that their future is even worse, facing even more hardships, and it's dependent on whatever work they do here, in the present, to fix it. Have the riders simply lost their wits to the cold, or is there some shard of truth buried in all of this? And, if there is, what exactly are their intentions?
Badlands Weyr is a Semi-Canon Dragonriders of Pern Roleplay! We're centered in an AU setting Post-AIVAS. Impression is not sexuality based (like at all), plots are open ended and decided by player interaction and hey! We froze Pern! We've just had our first on-screen leadership Flight, where a young gold has chosen a young bronze. In the wake of the recent attacks, is this really a safe bet? It seems the Head Guard is gearing up, drawing all his people away from the Weyrleadership and hoarding all firestone and weaponry. After the attack on the hatching, there was a mysterious cave-in at one of the firestone mines. No one was caught, but dragons reported seeing strangers leave with sacks of firestone! Who has it? Are the Outlanders gearing up? The Weyrhold is finally being preemptive, and striking out on an expedition after hearing rumors of strange dragon activity in the wilderness.
Outlander raids are increasing! While they didn't manage to kill any of the baby dragons; in fact, they seemed bent on taken them. Firestone has been taken from the mines. What could the Outlanders do next?
