No New Posts Weyrbowl

For the most part, the Weyrbowl is totally open. A mixture of rock and sand, scarred by many thousands of dragon claws pushing off and touching down, it contains a lake and feeding ground at one end, and a wide, low tunnel for ground entry and exit at the other. Dragons are constantly landing and taking off from the bowl for various reasons: conveying passengers, performing, preparing for or returning from sweeps, drills, or Search - these are just a few things that take place often here. The Wings also gather here for Thread.

No New Posts Hatching Grounds

More than large enough for a gold clutch of forty plus eggs, as well as candidates and the dam and sire of the clutch, the hatching grounds are set in the side of the extinct volcano. The fine black Istan sands, flown in especially from the island of the same name, lie on the ledge of rock that forms the base of the grounds. The sands are constantly heated by warmth that rises from the core of the planet and circulates just below the ledge. Tiers of seats able to accommodate the Weyr's entire population, as well as visitors, are carved into the stone sides of the cone. Plenty of glows illuminate the Grounds for nighttime occurrences, while daylight streaming in through the various openings leading into it illuminate it otherwise.

No New Posts Weyrling Barracks

The Weyrling Barracks is like a miniature compound for the Weyr's newest Riders. The male section is a long room with enough room for three full clutches of 30 dragons. The female section is of new construction, set off from the short hall leading to the outside is a smaller roundish cavern with a curtain to provide privacy. Each section has cots and stone couches, a clothes chest for each occupant, vats of oil for the constant oiling young dragons require, and a wash basin for quick washing in the mornings. Near the entrance is an office with an attached weyr for the Weyrlingmaster, adjacent is the classroom for the more human-based lessons, the notice board is set up here. There are also a couple of storage closets with cleaning supplies, linens, and necessities for young dragon care; and a small room for independent study with some important hides readily available for reviewing.

People have to have somewhere to call their own. For most weyrfolk, shared rooms and dormitories in the lower caverns are the norm. Married couples, families and posted crafters are usually lucky enough to have a larger room to themselves, also in the lower caverns. Riders lay claim to weyrs in the bowl wall, with higher ranking riders having larger weyrs. The only weyrs to have plumbed bathing facilities are those of the Weyrwomen and Weyrleader, these also being the biggest weyrs.

No New Posts Solaria Cove

This cove is large in size, with varying waves depending on sea conditions. The beach is a wide expanse of finely graded sand, causing it to be soft to the touch. The sand continues down into the water, and about five dragonlengths from the shore, the water is shallow, suitable for younger children to play in. The water is the blueish-green of the sea, but is clear, though not as clear as the lake in the Weyrbowl. Another of Solaria's relaxing hangouts, the beach provides many hours of fun for people, children and dragons, the latter enjoying the lovely sunning conditions.

Ketrin's dining hall is a grand affair: high-ceilings, this large room is decorated with many tapestries depicting events in the Hold's past, as well as images of the Hold as it is now, with its fields and buildings. A large tapestry of the race track is particularly prominent, with a race in full swing depicted in it.

There are a variety of different places for people in the Hold to live. Some people occupy rooms within the main Hold - usually crafters or those with higher-ranking jobs, such as the steward. Single people who work in the main Hold often have small single rooms, or share with others in the Hold proper or small dwellings just outside the main Hold. Further out, larger dwellings for families can be found, usually attached to land that the families tend to.

Ketrin Hold is famed for its grand Gathers, these taking place here in the expansive Gather square just outside the Hold proper. Well suited for stalls and masses of people, the area is well tended, and has attractive flowering plants decorating it in many areas, and elaborately crafted holders for glowbaskets that illuminate the area at night.

The main place of work for the herders, this is where the herdbeasts stay when not out to graze. Birthings, check-ups, medicine administration, and most other health-related tasks take place in the large building. It always smells strongly of animals, something that some people find off-putting.

No New Posts Rainforest

Damp, at times foggy, but always warm, these leafy trees contrast greatly with the dark forests of northern Pern. The trees stretch higher than any seen on Pern, and in their branches are many different ecosystems and animal cultures. There are at least three distinct levels of the rainforest: the main floor, the mid trees, and the high canopy. Each can also be divided into sections but as few people choose to live there not much else is known about the creatures and their habits. In the denser areas of forest where the trees reach their highest and crowd each other, the forest floor is a very dark and dangerous place to be, especially at night. With the Lake centred in the middle, most do not dare venture any further, afraid of getting lost, or worse - what may lie there.

Mathon Hold

Board Topics Posts Last Post
No New Posts Courtyard

Open and spacious, Mathon Hold's courtyard is paved with attractive pale grey stone that blends nicely with the colour of the natural rock part of the Hold is carved into. The courtyard is free of plantlife, and appears to be cleaned meticulously on a regular basis - one would be hard pressed to find any dirty spots. The stones of the floor are as well-kept as one can imagine, though show normal wear and tear and the rare claw mark from a particularly clumsy draconic visitor. Glowlamps are arranged on all four walls, with more focused around entrances to areas off the square, and on either side of the large, solid wooden gates that permit entry to the courtyard from the winding road up to it. More glowlamps on stands provide additional light in the centre of the courtyard.

No New Posts Dining Hall

Mathon's dining hall is a relatively large room, with neat rows of good, sturdy tables and one high table set perpendicular to the rest. The few tapestries on the wall make up for their number in size and detail, showing weavers, farmers, and a great aerial scene of the Hold itself and the surrounding jungle. There's a gap among them, though, and a conspicuous lack of dragons portrayed.

The craft cavern shows signs of being extended. Over half of the room is set into the cliff from which parts of Mathon are carved while large blocks of local stone make up the rest. The large room is divided by fairly permenant wooden screens into sections for all of the major crafts that require space and the echoes of the craft work deadened by the beautiful tapestries and rugs the local Weavers have produced and maintained over the Turns.

Rooms within the main Hold are usually occupied by crafters or those with higher-ranking jobs and their families, such as the steward. Single people and apprentices who work in the main Hold often have shared rooms in the Hold or the small buildings clustered around the Hold proper. Further out are the individual cotholds belonging to families and their associated land.

The infirmary is clean, white-washed, and in pristine order. Entrances to this place of healing are located from the interior in two locations and from the exterior in one location with big, wide metal doors. Storage for salves, ointments, wraps, and compresses are in shelving units cut precisely into the rock faces so as to be out of the way but easily accessible. The room itself is quite large with cots in a line with small tables and a single chair between each one for spacing. Tall screens made from saplings and cloth allow for moveable privacy if desired. Separate rooms are available for higher ranked individuals and birthing. Healer offices and quarters are set off and accessed by a small hallway and are both minimalistic and utilitarian.

No New Posts Riverbank

The river that runs past Mathon on its way to the sea is broad and deep, providing fish and waterplants and an excellent source of fresh water for the Hold and its various needs. Small bridges have been built across it for foot-traffic here and there, but the primary crossing is the ford that was built along the main road for the heavy carts that travel to and fro. Children - and perhaps a few adults - can often be seen splashing in the ford and the shallows on either side during the warmer months.

No New Posts Orchards and Fields

The extensive farmlands of Mathon roll gently down from the main Hold down to the river, with cart and footpaths running between the various fields. The orchards, once proud groves full of fruit, are now merely saplings in their second Turn, and the fields of grain and other crops are still sparse in their production, but each season brings with it more life; Soon enough, the land between Hold and River will be once again covered with green.
