Welcome to Vaioa!
What was once a desert Weyr has been forced to move South by a terrible famine and the unrest of the holders in the North. A disastrous jump forward in time has brought our refugees to a thriving future, with expansive towns and broad new horizons. Pern has moved on from past disasters, but can the lost Vaioan riders cope with so much change?

Welcome One And All!

Welcome to the (comfort filled) Jungle
[A welcome to new candidates]

Current RP Year:
50th, Turn 1305
Current Weather:
Spring in the South is a time of intense color and torrential rainfall. Roads that aren't stone are muddy rivers and everything feels a bit drowned by tropical storms. On days when the sun deigns to show itself, however, vibrant blooms and breathtaking beauty of the local flora more than make up for for the rain.

No New Posts The Cove
This idyllic cove delights Vaioa's residents with its majestic cliffs littered with fantastic caves, beautiful white, sandy beaches and warm tropical waters. A gentle river flows from the jungle and into the sea. Protected by a long stretch of reefs that ships must navigate carefully, this place is sheltered more than most parts of the coast from tropical storms and contains a lively port.

Located very near to the Great Hall, the Infirmary also doubles as a full Healer Hall, and sees both human and draconic patients. It has a large bay for dragons, as well as more normal rooms for human patients.

No New Posts Hatching Sands
At the joining of tremendous cliff and beach is Vaioa's extravagant hatching grounds. A huge stone arena filled with sand that's been warmed both by the hot springs beneath and the huge, stylized glass skylight that magnifies the formidable southern sun. Openings for dragons to fly in are numerous and the inside of the grounds sport raised tiers of seats as well as plenty of ledge space to perch on. The visiting queens may not get any rest, but at least their riders will, in the suite of comfortable rooms attached to the grounds.

Due to the tropical climate, the skies above Vaioa are warm and wonderful for flying, but can be a rainy, tempestuous mess as well.

No New Posts Hold Proper
Built in the cleared lands beyond the cove, Mora Hold is one of the first open air holds on Pern. Stone buildings house a large population, some of whom work at the weyr, some of whom are crafters at the local halls. There's also an open air market to be visited by all in the area.

No New Posts Wherhandler Quarters
Wherhandlers have their own set of buildings in the hold, where wher clutches and raising young whers take place. The handlers themselves can choose whether to live at the quarters or have off-site housing. The wher compound contains a moderately sized jail to house Mora Hold miscreants.

No New Posts Major Holds
The holds that have sprung to life on the Southern continent are widely varied. Each exists in a unique clime, all with different stories and unique people living in them. Many of Vaioa's candidates are Searched from these places rather than the North these days.

No New Posts The Untamed Jungle
This sprawling jungle is one of many that cover the Southern Continent but it has the distinction of bordering right up against the established civilization of Vaioa and the surrounding settlements. Even well-trod roads often have thick jungles to either side. There is no inch of this place that isn't draped in vines and moss and brightly colored flowers. The forest is full of natural resources if you know where to look, but it is also home to thousands of poisonous creatures and plants as well as larger, more dangerous predators.

No New Posts The Crater
Located roughly eighty miles inland from the cove hold, this impressive crater was once an active volcano. Were it bare, it might make an excellent Weyr but, long ago covered in a thick coat of vegetation, this remote and wild landmark of the South is beyond taming. The walls of this crater rise thousands of feet up into the clouds, making it inaccessible to all but the most ambitious and daring of dragons. Because of this, the wildlife here has remained nearly completely isolated from the rest of Pern for ages.

No New Posts Geyser Plains
Located inland in one of the many stretches of mountains that litter the southern continent, is an enormous field of geysers. The landscape is bleak, littered with pillars of steaming water that regularly erupt up to a mile into the air and beautiful pools of brightly colored minerals, stewing in boiling water. To those brave enough to dig, this alien place is rich with precious minerals and gemstones.

No New Posts Southern Weyrs
Two other Weyrs reside in the South: The well-established Lorrisan Weyr sits far south of Mora Hold, on an island in the middle of a vast lake, and the under construction South Igen in the West in the mountains.
