IC Date: Month 11 2267 to Month 6 2268
(Turns 7-8 of the 10th Pass)
Please do not go beyond these dates; going back and doing threads in the past is fine, going into the future is not.
Threadfall: Ongoing; intermittent and unlikely to freeze as the weather warms
Following a spectacular flight, Queen Minervath was caught by King Sulith and is now heavy with eggs. A new clutch is on the way, but will it be anything like her last or will this time bring joy and not sorrow?

Meanwhile, the Weyr continues to recover from the disastrous fallout of the first Threadfall of the Turn. Thread was successfully fought, but there were many injuries that brought the fighting strength of the Weyr down. A meeting has been called amongst the Weyr's leadership, Weyrlingmasters and Wingleaders to determine where the weaknesses lie.

In happier news, Senior Queen Kansk and Soldier-King Candesk have laid clutches, and as the eggs have hardened it has become clear that a joint hatching is to be expected.

We're fairly lax with availability; PCs are a small slice of the population, and generally we only really restrict things that are very rare. Still, if it's marked as limited, please respect that.

Numbers reflect the number of slots filled. For example, if it says Blah 0/2 it means there are two open 'slots' for Blah type characters.


~Adult Insta Slots~

Retired Queens: 0/2 (They are infertile; typically over 10 turns at least)
Queens: 2/3
Kings: 0/10
Officers: Unlimited
Knights: Unlimited
Soldiers: Unlimited
Scouts: 0/10

There are always ADOPTABLES available here at SN. Please feel free to browse them and if you would like to adopt one please make a character and submit them in the normal way.

Queens: 1/2
Kings: 0/10
Officers: Unlimited
Knights: Unlimited
Infertile Soldiers: Unlimited
Fertile Soldiers: 0/5
Scouts: 0/10

If you want to have a Worg at creation you can, but it has to make sense in the history.

This is for when you want a character to start play with a fire-lizard. Since flits are basically everywhere, we have limited restrictions on them.
-A character can start with as many flits as you can justify via backstory without needing OOC eggs (as long as you don't pull a M'lona right off the bat). We'll trust you to not abuse this power, and to let us stop you if you try.
-Queens and mutants are limited and require the use of OOC eggs/mutation tickets (purchased, traded, whatever) if not Impressed at an IC event; all other flit ranks are free for use.

HAD: 2/3
HAF: 1/3
HAW: 0/3

~Total Population of Restricted Positions~

The Masters of a Craft: 0/1 per craft
Masters of a Discipline: 0/up to 10 per craft, one per each major specialty of the Craft. (For Harpers, it would be composition, singing, instrument-making, etc., whereas for Smiths it would be Metallurgy, Pottery, Glass, etc.)
Master-ranked Crafters: 1/3 per major discipline of each Craft (1/3 Adepts Major, 0/3 others)
Journeymen: Unlimited
Journeywomen: 0/10 (at most, two PC Journeywomen per major Craft)

Lord/Lady Holders:

Lady Ophelia of Hilltop Hold: Taken. | NPC
Lord Camiron of Skullstones Hold: Taken.
Lady Holders of Skullstones Hold: Taken.

We reserve the right to amend this at any time to reduce the number of a specific character type allowed if balance problems are occurring, and, of course, to add new positions and increase the number allowed of others if the plot will benefit for it.
