          « on: 17 Jul 2014 at 10:02 AM »
          Oh my goodness, everyone... what happened to our daily votes? We're being slaughtered!

          Second Pass has always had a magnificent daily voting position - we've never been anything but in the top three for the past two and a half years. Are we really going to let them start whipping us now?

          It really is very easy, and it does a lot to make sure our site is out there and is visible to others. I know we're a little slow at the moment, and I know our community is currently on lock-down - but that doesn't mean we shouldn't take pride in our little Weyr and the things that goes on in it!

          Please, take a moment to click the 'vote today' links (priority being The Weyr Directory) each day, it really only takes a moment and goes a long way to show your pride and love for our game! (And it makes Honey feel warm with delight knowing the site is so visibly loved by you guys!)

          You can click the buttons in the menu bar, or you can click the link in the Cbox which will open in a new window for you.

          <3 Honey

          Second Pass Details / Discussion: Weyrbrat Fostering
          « on: 06 Jul 2014 at 05:53 AM »
          So! I was thinking, that as a way for the Weyr to win back support, and to help get older folk onto dragon back and less of Weyrbred babies (also a way to get rid of Weyrbred girls who want dragons ICly)

          ... Lost my train. I was thinking that the Weyr could foster out their children at age 12 to a hold or hall, where they would stay until they were 18 at which point they'd either journeyman, or they could come back to the Weyr to attempt an Impression.

          It would mostly benefit the Weyr in strengthening young bonds, and officially educating their youth before they return home. They'd lose some, but those who opted to further a craft or marry or whatever would be replaced by Searching in fresh blood aged 18-28.

          It would mean adult riders pretty consistently (under age impressions could be arranged as a special treat or whatever oocly) and would also mean the option to ditch any unwanted kids and being them back when they're of age or whatever.

          So, it's an idea. What are your thoughts?

          Second Pass Details / Discussion: Pernese Accents
          « on: 05 Jul 2014 at 09:20 AM »
          So, I was randomly thinking - Pern is a tiny bit smaller than Earth, I think, which means it would be most natural for the population to have regional accents!

          So, for the fun of a discussion, what regions do you think should sound like what (using real world accents)

          Please, please pleas don't actually attempt to write the accent into posts, bt I think it would are a lot of flavour to have a "Benden accent" (which sounds like X RL place). XD I can even add an accent spot on the mini profiles where people could fill in what accent their character had as a quick reference and to avoid putting it in RP.

          So, what do you guys think? What regions should have what accents?

          I think Katila should have some kind of bogan accent, because it's made up of all the riders from all the locations, who lived in isolation for three years before living in collective isolation for nearly twenty. But that's just me :P

          Hold/hall/Weyr could all have variations or be totally different depending on their proximity etc, or they could all be totally different.

          Discuss!

          Archived Contests / May Event - Mother's Day
          « on: 10 May 2014 at 01:58 PM »

          Happy Mother's Day!


          In celebration of Mother's Day (at least in some parts of the world!) this month will be dedicated to that wonderful day were we are supposed to spoil our mummies and love them endlessly. As with previous Monthly Events, you will have from the 1st to the 31st of May to get your threads started.

          As mentioned, this month our topic is based around Mother's Day - or more specifically, at least in regards to Second Pass - any parent! So, you could thread an awkward 'Yo, you're my dad' (Yes, R'nd, we're looking at you!) or maybe your character finds out she's pregnant, or perhaps you just have a family day out.

          Those of you that took part in the Thread Roulette are encouraged to use this for thread prompts, if you should so wish!

          Do keep in mind that its the characters who should be squirming, not their writer! Please communicate with each other to avoid RL discomfort!

          « on: 25 Jan 2014 at 06:11 PM »
          As you have undoubtedly noticed, te cbox is home to a rather delicious array of B'jin's FC faces, and a few stray R'nd faces. We are happy to add other faces to this array, assuming the following requirements are met:

          + must be a character Play By, not some random.
          + must be 100x100 pixels (I'm going to look into making them smaller, but this is their size at the moment.)
          + must focus on the face
          + said face must actually be expressive; eg - representative of a typical smilie :D or D< or ;) etc

          I'd like to remind people to be subtle with the use of the smiles, and not flood the cbox. We've been amazing and had no need for "cbox rules" and I'd really hate to have to add a page based on good common sense.

          General Chat / Christmas 2013!
          « on: 16 Dec 2013 at 04:33 AM »
          So, last year - December 2012 - my co-founder made these lovely little dragons and ran an OOC Hatching for Christmas. I don't have her talent for art things, but I did manage to make a little dragon, which I've done two edits of so far, and I'm going to give them away as little Christmas presents / OOC Hatching thingy~

          So! To get one...

          Pick an eggie! On December 25th, after I finish work, I'll 'Hatch' them and give them to the Player that picked 'em. You can do with them as you will thereafter, within reason (o.O Pretty sure you won't be able to sell 'em LOL)

          Courier System / IC Announcements
          « on: 08 Nov 2013 at 07:04 AM »
          In Character Announcements are the fastest way to share information, both with the residents of the location making the announcement, and with the Players of Second Pass as a whole. The making of announcements is the responsibility of the ranked individuals who run a location, such as Weyrleaders, Weyrmaster, Lord Holders, or the MasterCrafter as well as other individuals that are in positions of responsibility, such as Weyrlingmasters, and Craft Masters, to name a couple. Goldriders are also required to post Announcements when their gold has a clutch on the Sands if they do not actively RP the event.

          Announcements should be about important information, but can be made about anything that affects the home location of the announcement. Such things that might be announced include, but are not limited to:

          - Graduations (Weyrlings, Crafters)
          - Rank Changes of note (eg, new Wingleader)
          - Crafter Assignments
          - Clutch Announcements (Clutching; Hatching)
          - Deaths (predominately dragonrider deaths)
          - Births

          Hey guys!

          If you want to win some marks, guess the contents of the eggs!

          Clearly, Curiosity is a freebie; I can't remember how much I was awarding in past guessing contests, so when I find the other threads, you'll be awarded that much per correct guess. No drawbacks for guessing incorrectly!

          Descriptions

          They don't have Touching flavours, I'm afraid, but if you've seen our other Hatchings, you'll know the flavour doesn't tell you jack in regards to the contents anyway xD

          Hey guys!

          We have somewhere in the range of 30 eggs that need to be cooked up for the Touching classes. That means we need in the range of 30 physical descriptions... and it would be nice to get twice as many Touching responses; I personally like it when an egg has a different response for different people, especially if they have different thoughts at the time, or emotions, or general personalities.

          Everyone who participates will be awarded 3 marks a pop; just so you all know, 5 marks is what you get paid every time you make an IC post. So pretty easy grab right here! If you wanna take part, just make a single post, and keep editing in the new ones. It will keep the thread tidier.

          Egg Descriptions
          Remember that Second Pass utilises a plain-egg system. Our eggs range from pure white to soft grey tones to milky-creamy tones and those shades in between. They don't come in fancy patterns or anything like that. There may be size variations, or sit oddly amongst their siblings but nothing really major, which makes doing them all myself difficult. It's hard to come up with a couple of original descriptions; thirty is beyond me!

          Touching Descriptions
          Touching responses can literally be anything and everything under the sun. To get some more ideas, please read the Touchings that have been PCd, to see how those characters responded to the different eggs. Submitting

          Here you can guess the size of the two clutches that will be Hatching in July 2013! There will be 2 lots of 200 marks available for the winners (One per clutch).

          Krypth: Krypth usually clutches an average of 10 eggs, has a habit of gorging, and this is her first bronze winner.
          Okalinath: Okalinath is an unknown entity IC, however, OOC I can tell you she will clutch an average of 25. She had some mild gorging and was caught by a bronze, whom I will reveal when I get my arse around to posting.

          200 marks will be awarded to the players who guess the closest to each clutch (1 clutch winner x 2 clutches = 2 people).

          You have until the Clutching date which is about the 20th  8th of June, 2013. Then this contest will be closed and a guess-the-contents will be opened!

          What I really mean is that I spent about 3/4s of the time pretending to be:

          A gay man in denial about both his sexuality and the fact that he's been in a solid relationship for two years and is having a panic attack at turning 50.
          An obnoxious teenager struggling with finding out she's pregnant and the social expectations for her to HAVE that child.
          An incredibly sexist young woman who cannot comprehend the idea that a man might like to learn to cook.
          A two faced shrimp of a man so good at acting he has most of the local population convinced he's a ball of good times while running around being an evil bastard in circles noone would call him on.

          SP Pern Canon / Map Of Katila Weyr
          « on: 03 Dec 2012 at 03:26 AM »
          A to-scale Map of Katila Weyr.
          I've included two reference dragon-dots for you; Larrikith, our smallest dragon and Ronarth, our largest dragon.

          Additionally; I have added a board to Inner Katila for the River's Edge.





              Katila Weyr is a hand-made Weyr located in the Southern Continent. It consists of man made huts, built of a combination of stones, bricks and wood. Almost all of the original buildings were destroyed in the particularly awful summer storm that swept through Katila in the early summer of 225 AL. There after, the buildings were rebuilt much sturdier and stronger. As a result, they have better survived the following storms that cruised through the small settlement.

              Unlike the other buildings, the Hatching Circuit was dug out about 10 feet deep, and metal piping was inlaid through out it. It was then filled up to only a 2 foot drop with sands from the Coast Line up toward the North. Below, the pipes are fed from the river above the Hatching Circuit, heated, and run through the sands. The water fed out the other side is part re-directed to the Bathing Houses, while the rest is sent to the Kitchens to use for cooking. Excess water runs off back into the river. The fires are kept hot and low burning with dried dragon dung twenty four seven. While the Weyr did stop the fires during those times there were no eggs on the Sands, it was decided it was easier to just let them burn and keep the Bathing Houses and the Kitchen supplied with hot water.

          Candidacy Details / Being Searched and Candidacy
          « on: 19 Nov 2012 at 06:08 AM »
          Note: this page contains a lot of details that will pertain to when the Katilan's go North. While they don't officially apply just yet in all cases, they should be kept in mind.

          Searching in General

          The Search method employed by Katila Weyr was an act of desperation, during which trusted dragonriders were sent North to seek out those who had the ability to Impress, but also importantly (perhaps more so, in the case of women) were the education and usefulness of those that were selected to come South. Because of Weyrwoman Tsuen's demand that the population remain off the radar of the Northern population, those that were deemed candidate worthy were literally kidnapped, stolen away by force, coerce, drugging or literal snatching. As a result, many of those Impressed to the clutches hatched between 227's Renewed Hope and 23#'s Clutch Name bonded to the young men and a few young women who were not entirely pleased with their new lot in life.

          Because of the manner in which the crafters were stolen to supply Katila with candidates, both Hold and Hall will almost entirely be very disinterested in supplying candidates by allowing their young men – and especially women – to be Searched.  While the stigma against the Weyrs will mellow with time, women will most particularly not be favoured for searching, either by the Weyr itself, or the Holds and Halls who do allow the dragonriders entrance to select their candidates. Young men – so long as they are not Heir – will be allowed and encouraged the honour of standing for Impression, though there will forever remain a strong dissatisfaction with the Impression of green, blue and even in some cases, brown dragons to the sons of the families of Pern.

          Female Candidates

          It is generally preferred that the Weyr take from their own population to supply candidates, but it is understood that they do need the blood and youngsters of Hold and Hall to boost their numbers. While young men are handed over with far less grumbling, the women are generally only allowed to be Searched if she is a gold candidate -- or already an embarrassment to the family name.

          Female fighter-Candidates are not looked upon favourably, by the Weyr itself, or by the Holds the young women come from. They are increasingly considered a bad omen, and Searchriders who bring them in are increasingly frowned upon, abused, and have life generally made difficult for them. The young women in question are as unfavourably treated. Due to their eligibility to Impress a green, or rarely, a blue dragon these women often hold up well under the insults and develop a thick skin; a needed attribute for a greenrider lifestyle. Following through on the Katilan decree made by the then Weyrleader D'ren, all women who hope to take on a fighter dragon are required to have produced a child for the Weyr, with no subtle preference on their birthing a son, though the father is hand waved.

          Hold and Hall look down harshly on women who ride dragons, proclaiming them women loving whores, unworthy of any rank or family ties they held prior to their Search and Impression. Women who accept a Search are considered traitors to their home, family and father. Very few women who are Searched as a potential female Fighter take up the offer, considering it as shameful as their father's. Those that do are stripped of all family ties and educational rank. Any engagements are broken off, and the family from which the woman comes often lose 'points' as far as their standing in the political warfare of Hold and Hall.

          Women who are chosen to be a gold Candidate, however, are looked upon somewhat more favourably. Most Holds resent having to give over their daughters to be a dragonrider at all, but favour the idea of a goldrider - and a potential Weyrwoman - than they do a fighter rider, especially for future dealings and tithe with the Weyr in question. Those girls that are engaged, promised, or eldest are generally outside of search eligibility, though such may be hand waved, depending on the quality of the Searcher and the Lord or father in question.

          Gold candidates who fail to Impress are generally welcomed back home, though their lack of virginity - which they are encouraged to lose during candidacy - is generally frowned upon and makes finding them a husband that much more difficult. Women who accept a Searching for a fighter dragon are generally required to make themselves at home once they reach the cut off age, as they are stripped of all rank and ties after accepting their candidacy. Such women generally become Weyr Cavern workers, and are not unknown to become regular flight moths.

          Male Candidates

          It is generally preferred that the Weyr take from their own population to supply candidates, but it is understood that they do need the blood and youngsters of Hold and Hall to boost their numbers. Generally, the young men that are selected as worthy of Standing, are allowed to go with a certain level of honour; this however, does exclude those that claim a rank of some description – especially Heir apparent. However, due to the Stealing that was undergone by the Katilan, many of the Halls will not allow any member of their student body to be Searched if they are above the rank Sr. Apprentice – meaning all Journeymen and Masters are out of  bounds for the dragonriders. While this can and does cause some issues in Weyrs trying to build up a suitable population for themselves, they take what they can, and gratefully.

          While it is considered honourable for a woman to be a goldrider and not for her to ride a fighting dragon, among many of the Holds and Halls, a similar stigma is upheld for the young men that Impress. While it is traditionally considered an honour to have a member of the family Impress to a dragon, and most Hold and Hall members will be happy to inform anyone that So and So is a dragonrider, almost the entirety of non-weyrfolk consider it shameful for the sons of their family to bond to a blue and especially a green dragon. Non-weyr opinions of the homosexual have not changed over the turns that Katila was in hiding, rather they have increased, and while the Weyr is a great way to ‘be rid’ of such inclined young men, it is generally terribly embarrassing to admit a dragon saw the tendencies within them.

          In contrast, it is considered of the highest honour to claim a bronze – and depending on the circumstances – a brown Impressed young man! Only the best Impress to those colours, obviously, and their son is one of those few! Such opinions from the Hold and Hall folk have a mixed reception from the Weyrfolk themselves, particularly depending on their position in the hierarchy.

          Class rosters will vary from Weyrlingmaster to Weyrlingmaster, but in general they will follow the same basic routine. Candidates will be assigned to the Weyrlingmaster that will be leading the future Weyrlings through their two years of education, upon their Searching. Searching is conducted from various times, depending on the gold in question. For the most part, Searching begins the day after the gold flies and is caught, as the Sire of the clutch is often a booster for wooing Hold and Hall into handing over their young men and women, especially if the dragon pair is known to produce gold eggs. Searching ends 90 days later, when the gold clutches. The real lessons begin there on in, and as such, no new candidates are allowed into the class.

          Candidacy classes generally focus on generalised information for the first three months, including making sure all the men and what few women are Searched are up to scratch with both their numbers and letters; that they understand the ranking system within the weyr; and that anyone still a virgin loses their virginity before the eggs are laid. Following Weyrlingmaster B’jin’s decision to remove all virginal candidates from his class in 232 AL, and thus avoid virginal flights post Impression, the tradition has been up held.

          Similarly, while some Weyrlingmasters consider it ridiculous and do not follow the growing trend, many have taken up the cause of gifting their Candidates with a firelizard egg upon joining their candidate class. Most Weyrlingmasters keep a green or gold firelizard themselves, or are on good terms with someone that does. While clutches are not always available at the right time, Weyrlingmasters seem to be particularly efficient at getting their hands on just the right number of eggs. Firelizards, not being generally available to the public, particularly in the Telgar region, are a tremendous gift to the Candidates, who would be highly unlikely to ever see on – let alone Impress – under different circumstance.

           
          Impression Requirements & OOC Information

          Gold Candidate: Character should have at least 150 posts on her account, by the current player (eg, an adopted character's post-count prior to adoption does not count towards her 150 required posts) in order to be seriously considered for Impression. More will increase the likelihood of her Impressing. However, she must also fit the Second Pass Weyr requirements for goldrider and the Player must understand that Second Pass Weyr does not run their goldriders like many other sites; please see [Link to come] page for more in depth goldrider information. A minimum of 100 posts is required for Impression.

          Bronze Candidate: Character should have at least 150 posts on his account, by the current player (eg, an adopted character's post-count prior to adoption does not count towards his 150 required posts.) in order to be seriously considered for Impression. More will increase the likelihood of his Impressing. It is not required.

          Female Candidate: Character should have at least 200 posts on her account, by the current player (eg, an adopted character's post-count prior to adoption does not count towards her 200 required posts.) in order to be seriously considered for Impression. More will increase the likelihood of her Impressing significantly. If she is seeking a blue, it is advised that she be closer to the 250 post mark. A minimum of 200 posts is required for Impression

          Male Candidate: Character should have at around 100 posts on his account, by the current player (eg, an adopted character's post-count prior to adoption does not count towards his 100 required posts.) in order to be seriously considered for Impression. More will increase the likelihood of his Impressing significantly. If he is seeking a bronze, it is advised that he be over the 150 post mark, as above.

          Post Count Purchase: A count of 100 faux posts can be purchased (per transaction) from the IC Shop for 2,000 Marks, or occasionally it will be made available in the prize pool of an Event. The sum of 2,000 Marks is about equal to 300 to 400 posts, depending on how many topics the player has started (15 marks per topic, 5 marks per post). While definitely the more expensive route, we feel this is also fair; if you've posted 300 odd posts with Character X, Y, Z or a combination there of, we feel you should be able to reward yourself with a more 'instant' candidate.

          The faux post count does NOT count towards the 200 limit required for female chromatic Impression.

          Please keep in mind that the recommended post count is to maximise character interaction so the Team can get the best possible idea of what type of dragonet is best suited the character in question. The Post Count Purchase has been added to make it easier to be applicable for Impression but should not be solely relied upon to guarantee Impression.

          In Character Expectations: Female candidates are shuffled into either 'gold rider' or 'chromatic rider' Candidacy. A Player is more than welcome to apply for one, either or both, but the character is required to file into one or the other grouping. This keeps the IC expectations neat and tidy, especially since they cannot comprehend that one type of woman might be suitable for the other; it also allows for some interesting opportunities should the young woman in question Impress outside the circle she's expected to fit into.

          Colour Limits Per Player: A player may have no more than the following:
          One goldrider at any given time.
          One female bluerider at any given time.
          Two female chromatic riders at any given time (eg, 2 green, or 1 green/1 blue)
          This totals as three female riders Per player.
          Please note that some female rider slots are only available via purchase through site Events. We wish to keep female riders as special, as well as rewarding those who take the time to participate in site events with something uncommon and often desired.

          There are no limitations on the number of bronze, brown, blue or green male characters a Player holds. If you can keep them active, go all out.
