While there is no rule stating that green flights _must_ be written, they can get many a plot going! And as we all know, gold flights lead to Hatchings! So get caught up on all the upcoming flights happening here.

There's always a lot going on at our various locations, so your friendly Level One rankers sum up and the end of the month to keep you in the know! Check below to find out the important events that have happened and will happen at each location!
Weyrleader K'reyel and Weyrwoman Saibra are planning a series of emergency drills for Dragonsfall Weyr in order to assess the Weyr's state of readiness when it comes to handling unplanned situations. Because they didn't want to raise an alarm at their neighboring Weyrs, Saibra called in Weyrwoman Cyradis from Dolphin Cove and Weyrwoman Lenala from River Bluff Weyr to inform them of the drills... and to exchange a little gossip, from one Weyrwoman to another.
Two old friends, D'ale and W'ser, had a drink together, reminiscing about their bachelor days and how things are much better since they found Yanley and Sasima.
A'kua has a not-so-good experience with one of the fresh Candidates who doesn't want to work. Z'then comes upon the young bronzerider while he is still fuming over the matter.
Saibra meets with Z'then as his Wingleader and suggests that he practices flying with some of the higher-altitude Wings so that he can begin working on overcoming his fear of heights. Z'then is at first afraid that Saibra doesn't want him in her Wing, but the Weyrwoman assured him that he has a place in Sienna Wing for as long as he wishes.
Midway through the month A'kua takes Jessmyr home to meet his family, and he shares news with Z'then that he found a wild firelizard clutch.
D'kere does his best to be social with Talwynn's family by spending some time with her cousin T'shi, who happens to be the most well-versed player of games in the Weyr. The two men talk about different things, with D'kere offering some advice on women at Dragonsfall, but finally settling for a game of darts.
Greenrider Tavia and Greenrider Aileyan share a moment, reminiscing about how far they have come since Tavia moved to Dragonsfall and how their children have grown.
A little misunderstanding causes E'naer undo worry as G'wen takes a spill from Neath while landing during Threadfall. The greenrider turns out to be fine after all of the confusion, much to E'naer's relief.
Finally, Weyrwoman Saibra's gold Chioneth rises for the third time at Dragonsfall, and even though both R'enh of Dolphin Cove, and former Weyrleader G'nir, urged their bronzes to win, it was K'reyel's bronze Erdenth who caught Chioneth for the second time, securing his position as Weyrleader once again.

Amber Hills Hold
Corran wants to get Nohria a gift to show his affection, and since he knows how much she likes his own fireliard, the guard arranges to get Nohria a firelizard egg. The woman is very happy with the gift, and let's Corran know.
Later in the month Nohria's egg hatches to reveal a brown firelizard that she names Malin.
Nohria also makes a new friend when she meets Serra, someone who shares in her opinions on women's rights.
Loella and Karhal think back to the dangerous injury he had months ago at the end of a blade. The area has since healed but neither Loella or Karhal have forgotten how serious that night was for them both.
Lord Zathris is working very hard around the Hold now that he is back to allay fears and prove that he is able to lead and protect the Amber Hills people. This is proving difficult, however, as vandalism around the Hold continues. Zathris and the Hold's Steward, Yusanis, had to discuss a particularly graphic bit of graffiti on one of the Hold's best murals.
Zathris and Yusanis also met with Karhal to discuss adding more watches and patrols around the Hold in the hopes of catching whomever is behind the vandalism. Loella even suggested that they use her ability, Hearing All Dragons, which was a shock to Zathris and Yusanis, to help coordinate the firelizards around the Hold. Karhal was angered by the notion as he didn't want to endanger his wife in any way. In the end it was decided that retired guards and other men would be drafted into patrols.
Benamil finally faces Arion, the object of his hidden affections, when Arion wants to discuss those so-called "feelings" that Benamil has. Being raised a holder and the son of a Lord, Benamil being gay isn't an option, at least, not publicly, and Benamil still doesn't know what Arion thinks about his feelings because he is called into action by Zathris.
A rock slide has taken place at Lantern Ridge Minor Hold, prompting the small, mining community to send to Amber Hills for support. Knowing that he cannot leave the main Hold while vandalisms and attacks are still happening, Zathris sends Benamil, his brother-by-marriage, in his place.

Things have been quiet and peaceful at the Vintner Hall for a long time. Apprentices have been learning, journeymen teaching and masters overseeing. Keayd, for example, taught his apprentices - amongst which was Rohagelen - on the subject of filters.
Things are about to stir, though. With the old Hallmaster stepping down, Master Rayan has found himself a likely candidate for the created vacancy. He and his wife Bethila nervously await the outcome of the next meeting of Masters. Should he be elected, he has some plans in store that will surely bring excitement to the Hall.

Dolphin Cove Weyr
Cyradis and N'vanik discuss Meledei leaving and other changes at the Weyr. Kapera and Corowal dance at the Hatching and then spend some time alone.
Chaysea and Kapera talk about the very unpleasant but necessary task of numbweed making. V'con and L'exan chat while washing their dragons. L'pin offers to look for records of J'ackt's past. A'be has trouble with a fellow weyrling and L'pin puts a stop to it.
A'vel attempts to get the experience he needs before his green's flight, but balks. He goes into the flight unprepared and his worry causes Tsogath to injure herself and Zith catches her. J'ackt isn't pleased to wake up next to a man, but manages to be polite to poor A'vel. Kapera checks on the greenrider after his flight, just as she promised. K'zel checks on him too and they discuss what happens between men both in and out of flights.

At the beginning of Month 3 Hallmaster Famell announced that he would be stepping down from his position and moving with his wife and child to Jade Harbor Hold to allow Journeywoman Shilara time to work on achieving her Mastery.
Master Endarin was invited down, at first as a temporary solution, but then as a permanent replacement for Famell. Shortly after his arrival Endarin began meeting the other dolphineers at the Dolphin Hall. He also took a trip to the Weyr, escorted by Goldrider Meledei, where he learned more about the Weyr's procedures and how they work with the Hall.
Master Sharev arrived back from his time out at sea and spent some time talking with Veerona on the beach. He also checked in on Milga the next day to see how she was progressing with her studies.
Journeywoman Irabel and Hallsecond Thayde began a tenuous friendship, a friendship that Thayde wished to further into something deeper. After helping Irabel after a drunken accident, Thayde finally asked Irabel for a date. The two dolphineers seemed to be on completely different wave lengths, as they ended the date with Irabel wanting more and Thayde convinced that Irabel wanted nothing to do with him.
The next day Thayde resigned from his position as Hallsecond and then left, going on a trip to Topaz Hold for a few days away from the Hall. Master Endarin has now begun the process for considering a new Hallsecond.

Emerald Falls Hold
Lizayna and Furtor paid the ultimate prize for trying to blackmail Lord Corowal with the baby she was carrying (a result of Corowal's thryst with her). He ordered Zandan to silence them, and he did, setting a fire to cover his tracks. Of course, Captain Zandan was also the one responsible of investigating the fire...
Lord Holder's life is never easy. He has lot of concern: Lady Felyna's health, Steward Sarban's sudden departure (his sister's husband suddenly died and he was called to help his family), stolen tithes and the approaching Turn's End.
Emerald Falls Hold has also received a new crafter. Journeywoman techinician Solai has accepted a contract. Lord Corowal received her himself and warned her of the Hold's attitude towards female crafters.

Since becoming Hall Master, Vestian has began to extensively expand Harper Hall, adding a large hall for past relics as well as additions for practice rooms and expanded teaching areas.
Vestian has also began to heal his relationship with his wife, Porenne, who has helped him develop a system of eyes and ears in Holds and Weyrs so he can keep up to date with all of the latest rumors and information. Recently, he's come upon some very interesting information about the marriage status of Rethisa; turns out that Rethisa and Demir's marriage may not be legitimate.

River Bluff Weyr
River Bluff Weyr has been grievously damaged!
A volcano erupted offshore. It caused a tsunami which smashed into River Bluff and damaged the Weyr's docks and flooded out the Hatching Sands. If that wasn't bad enough, a follow-up earthquake brought down the Hatching Caverns, the dragon infirmary, and some of the weyrs and Lower Caverns.
Now the survivors camp out on the bluff while they wait for the Masons to determine the fate of their home. Without Hatching Sands, can River Bluff be a functioning Weyr? And if not, where will everyone go?

Sunstone is hit with earthquakes which damage the Hold making portions of it unlivable. The docks and warehouses near the waterline are swamped by the Tsunami but the protection of the harbor and Wall island prevent the devastation experienced by Riverbluff Weyr.
Crops in terraces are protected by their height above the flood, as are the cots and other buildings on the hillsides around the harbor.

Runners sent from Sunstone found the Hall smashed and broken by the huge wall of water that hit it after the Volcano's blast.
Survivors were found and taken back to Sunstone Seahold where they were given supplies and shelter until decisions could be made about their futures.
The Hall Master was not found.
