This month at Dragonsfall Weyr has been a grueling one for Weyrling A’kua. Weyrhealer Taren and Mindhealer Zelltye discussed the young bronzerider’s fears about Thread, which had left A’kua waking up in the wee hours to sing out his feelings and fears about the silver enemy. Things begin to turn around for A’kua when he is finally able to move in with his girlfriend Ilyssia.
Brownrider Z’then has been dealing with problems of his own in the air, mainly due to vertigo, and his trouble understanding wing formations when they’re on a piece of paper. Weyrwoman’s Second, Teseada, was understanding when talking to Z’then, even though her suggestion that Juvath might one day sire a clutch sent Z’then into an awkward panic.
Young Bronzerider R’gelen, who joined the Weyrling Staff as an Assistant, rode out on sweeps with Weyrling R’allo. The pair saw a signal fire and were able to assist some travelers who were struggling to deal with a rockslide.
In the Lower Caverns, Headwoman Yanley and Harper Nokala discuss chores and lessons for new Candidates and some new supplies for the Weyrbrats.
And finally, Weyrleader K’reyel and Weyrwoman Saibra discussed some emergency drills that they might spring on the Weyr unannounced to check and see if the residents of Dragonsfall were prepared for the unexpected.

Amber Hills Hold
Well doesn't that just kick it? Or is it I'll be cracked if the Guard Captain didn't get talked into teaching Lady Benani to fight with a knife? He was none to pleased about it and he and that sassy wife of his had more than a few words on the subject.
Better if the Guard Captain and his men could find out who's causing the string of thefts and painted messages around the Hold. With the Lord still missing at the time it seemed to escalate.
But the Lady had some thoughts of her own on the matter and put her brother Royah's experience as their fathers assistant to good use working with Steward Yusanis. She isn't going to allow anyone to interfere with her children and their rightful inheritance. They have the Hold running properly and at least made certain that any circling carrion eaters would get an eyeful of a well run hold.
Seems as though the drudge Nohria has some conflicts with her own thoughts and feelings about a certain guard. Was the trap she tried to spring something that taught her a lesson about how a good man treats a woman? Is she rethinking her allegiance to the gang of holdless? Maybe? Maybe not?
And what about Benil? The former Lords youngest son seems to have had some nightmares that have left him with an awkward view of himself and his own desires.

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.

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
The only news is backdated stuff: Sarban and Zandan plan for the search for the missing riverboat, recruiting all available forces to comb the river.

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
Life at River Bluff has been interesting over the past few months, especially as it relates to the gold dragon population. Weyrleader K'ran and Weyrwoman's Second Lenala attended a Conclave of all of the Southern Weyrs. The topic of dragon bloodlines was discussed and several arrangements were made to transfer junior goldriders around. This means that Lanniya, River Bluff's youngest gold and Hears-All, has been transferred away from the Weyr. Is this a punishment for the disappearing act of a few months back?
Arriving to replace her is Genna, a junior goldrider from Dragonsfall - and a person of great interest to the Weyrleader. Rumors are flying about what this gold transfer will mean for River Bluff. Will Genna provide the assistance that Lenala needs? What will happen between her and the Weyrleader?
Vilarth's most recent clutch of weyrlings has just completed their Blooding and survived with no losses. Healthy new dragons joining the wings is always a cause for celebration. And speaking of celebration, what's been going on at the pre-Blooding parties?? C'rin, a weyrling from this clutch, has been spending a lot of time with Riveenata. Is this the start of a good friendship or is new love blossoming?
With her last clutch graduating, Vilarth is likely to rise again soon. Her last few flights have been won by different dragons. What's going to happen this time?
Meanwhile, the new Headwoman Jayzine has been settling in just fine. Her daughter is working with the Bakers and might apprentice soon. That's quite a change from Hall life!
There's a good deal of intrigue

Things have been slow recovering from the hurricane that did so much damage to the Seacraft Hall near Sunstone. Many of her craftmen and residents have been busy helping the surrounding area deal with the damage.
Of course other things still progress and the Lady of the hold was seen visiting with the Watchrider. Nothing other than a simple conversation but should the Lady be wandering the hold without companions? Sunstone isn't quite as safe a place as her former home but surely her husband will take her in hand.
Speaking of her husband. There are rumors floating around that he's been seen out and about at all hours. What is he doing? Having some sorts of trysts. He does seem to get what he wants though doesn't he? Some of the drudges were seen gossiping about the Headwoman. They think she's in a 'condition' that may not agree with her future at the hold. We'll just see what Lord Bryvin does when he find's out right?

So the seacraft hall is almost back on its feet after the hurricane. That means more stories. The staff is focusing on the shipyard, which will be bigger and better than ever. Watch out Sunstone Seahold! Will there be more commissions for the ships that can run on coalsteam? Does your Lord Holder want one?
Does your character need a ride to the north or from the north? Rumor is the seacraft hall is going to start making regular Crossings with their first steamship. Mail and passengers are welcome, that need to get where they're going with more speed and can pay better to do it.
Do you have an idea for a story? Let us know! Do you have an idea for a character? We have plenty of room for personas. We'll write with anyone! There's also open rank available for the brave.
