Re: Most capable Weyrwoman

I agree that Brekke failed in an essential facet of being a Weyrwoman ... but I tend to overlook that, as it is extremely difficult (if not impossible) to overcome your earliest upbringing and...

Re: Dragon population and attrition

The dialog between dying Sorka and Wind Blossom in Dragonsblood sheds some interesting light on this. It is explicitly stated that once Carenath was killed, Faranth never rose to mate again.

Re: Dragon population and attrition

I don't think this idea can be rejected out of hand. If I remember correctly, F'lessan does some specific musing to himself about how the dragon population could be kept under control After in The...

Re: Most capable Weyrwoman

Leri. Much of what we admire in Moreta was inculcated by Leri's training. She commanded huge respect both within and outside the Weyrs.

Brekke. Her issues aside, Brekke took on the majority of...

Re: Most capable Weyrleader

I'm going to say, T'gellan. First, he has to deal with the fact that he's not weyrmates with his Weywoman (that must lead to some interesting situations and power struggles, though it's never...

Re: Favourite aliens in planet pirates/Dinosaur planet

I voted Seti. The reckless gamblers of the universe.



I was amused by the Door of Honor and the Tunnel of Cowardly Certainty.

And the tossing of loaded dice while travelling faster than...

Re: Pern Colonist Genepool topic

Did someone ask for Emily Boll's quote on religion in Dragonsdawn?



Then there's a nice one from Marco Galliani in Beyond Between:

Re: Any real talents in here?

I'm a definite empath. Many times in my youth I would be at a gathering, a party ... suddenly I would feel the mood of the room shift. I would then leave; only later would I hear the story of the...

Re: Well. they are making the movie.

Argh, I need coordinates for a between-time jump to the future to see what results!

(Yes, I know, I'm a dimglow, future jumps are dangerous, yadda yadda)

I guess I'll have to get there the...

Re: Things we don't think about regarding Pern.

Nice, I did not remember that the "sonic boom" (if you will) of a dragon teleporting was mentioned in Dragonflight. Having recently read Dragon's Fire, it's explicitly mentioned during the Weyr Games...

Re: Kylara, a Bad girl or just misunderstood?

I tend to agree. Being denied what she saw as her birthright snapped her pretty good. By the time she attacked Paradise River Hold she was truly insane.

She would have probably made an effective...

Re: Pernese Insults

I too am fond of them, I've made a little list (though I think you hit most of them in the initial post):

By the shell!
By the Egg of Faranth!
For the Egg's sake!
Shards!
Shardit!

Re: What would your Pernese job-description be?

Pre-AIVAS, definitely a Harper, hopefully a Weyrsinger.

Post-AIVAS, Computercraft is definitely a strong possibility, considering it's what I do here on Earth.

Re: Future Time Measurement

Lots of food for thought in this thread.

But as to the original topic, I'm pretty sure the Pernese will use the "Turn-after-Landing" format for dating post-Thread, as AIVAS corrected their dating...

Re: The Dolphins of Pern

I'd be willing to bet we hear at least a little about Readis / Dolphincraft / Kahrain Hold in the final 9th Pass book, even if only in passing.

I enjoyed DoP very much as well. I enjoyed the...

Re: Musical styles brought from Earth

The expanded drum code developed by Tieran allowed drumming to become more complicated, and eventually resulted in new works of jazz and of traditional old-Earth Celtic music (Dragonsblood).

Re: Weyr capacities

Hi there all. Long time lurker, first time poster.

The original six Weyrs, at full complement, would have close to three thousands dragons in total (Dragonflight).
