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.

Months 1 and 2 have been busy at the Hall!
In month 1 the Vintner Hall was proud to host a Gather to show off their wares. Hallsecond Capwick and his wife, Sanora, shared a moment to talk about family before greeting the guests at the Hall party. The Hall was honored that Corran and Nohria stopped by and tried some of their cider. Nohria impressed the Vintner with her discerning taste! Finally, Hallsecond Capwick dropped by to watch Journeyman Keayd in action. The young man did very well! Perhaps even good enough for a promotion...
Vintner Arion enlists his sister Akidra's help with his relationship with Benamil. Not only does she agree to deliver a message to the beastcrafter, she also lends a sympathetic ear to her brother. Benamil came to the Hall to talk to Arion, assuring him that just because he is marring a woman to cover up the secret of his sexuality, he had no intention to stop seeing Arion.
After Sanora's visit to Amber Hills which ended up in her giving a group of ladies a tongue lashing, it seems that some trouble has arisen for her son Norwick. He came to ask his father's help in getting his mother to apologize to the ladies, which she was not happy about. But Capwick knows his wife well, and he helped her to see that it is important for her to try to play nice with the ladies of the Hold, even when she's right.

Dolphin Cove Weyr
Brennault is thrilled to meet A'vel's dragon and Tsogath declares that the runner is "bright". A'vel and Brennault also dance at the Hatching Feast.
There are plenty of other dances that night. Dessa and T'lin joke about making bronzeriders jealous. T'lin shares a dance with his best friend V'rel and they hope their dragons get along as well as they do. Kapera and F'lin dance together as well. She seems to be spending a lot of time with the young bronzerider.
Alina confronts J'ackt about why he's been avoiding her.
A'vel talks to N'vanik about the possibility that he has a half brother at the Weyr. N'vanik offers to come with the greenrider if he needs backup confronting his father with the information.
Kapera, ahem, "catches up" with U'kaiah when the bronzerider comes to Dolphin Cove on official business.
Lanniya tells A'dryn that she's moving to Dragonsfall and the two make plans for regular visits. K'mai comes for a visit to Riveenata and they talk about how the loss of River Bluff is hitting them.
With R'enh planning to leave, N'vanik finds himself in need of a new Wingsecond. A'kades applies for the job, but N'vanik wants to be thorough in his decision. First he speaks to K'ran, who A'kades served as Weyrlingmaster. Then he speaks to A'dryn, who trained under A'kades. N'vanik is impressed by what he hears and offers A'kades the job.
V'rel gives bracelets to T'lin and Dessa as a token of friendship. But T'lin and V'rel are more than friends now and they speak to the Weyrlingmaster Third about what kinds of affection are allowed during junior weyrlinghood.
Little Santhiath, the newest gold, is already making demands when she meets the Weyrleaders, but Dessa seems to have a good handle on her.
The day after the Hatching a hurricane blows in and the weyrlings have to move to the safety of the Hatching Caverns.

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
Lord Holder Corowal has decided to take some of his children with him for the Amber Hills Hold's Gather. It's time for the middle children to start learning the duties of the Blood. Or just have some fun. He also invited their fostermother Erassa with him. I wonder why... Is he warming up the old spark between them?

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 was hit by an earthquake in month 12 of Turn 8. The Hatching Caverns caved in and enough of the Weyr was damaged that a team of master Masons reported it unsafe for habitation. As a result, River Bluff's residents have been scattered to other Weyrs and its overflight territory divided up.
OOC NOTE: River Bluff Weyr is now a closed NPC location.

The Ghost Ship is bringing some interesting things to light along with all the repairs from the Tsunami that destroyed Seacraft Hall.
It looks like with his new assistant's help, he may be able to squeeze some profit out of the discover and at Crimson Coasts expense.
But what is the Lady Holder doing? Is she really sending her daughter to the Weyr? And what could possibly happen if Bryvin finds out what she's done?
I can't wait to find out!
