A Brief Darilan Weyr History

The name "Darilan" comes from the names of seven dragonriders who helped found Darilan Weyr. They are: D'soraj, rider of bronze Salayith; Aokka, rider of blue/green Amolath; R'tezel, rider of blue Ronth; Ilorasa, rider of gold Shamadith; L'net, rider of brown Tesoth; A'kee, rider of brown/bronze Malath; and Norra, rider of gold/silver Jorreth.

The first silver dragon to fly at Darilan was Kamalth. After the first silver's flight, she soon laid a rowdy clutch of 22 eggs. They Hatched many handsome dragons, including browns Yollath and Jebrith, as well as gold/silver Myzith, who chose Shuma as her rider. Unfortunately, Kamalth died in a Thread accident the first Threadfall after her eggs hatched, leaving one very ancient queen, gold Tlinath, and the new queen, silver/gold Myzith, the only queens in the Weyr.

Myzith, three years after her birth, rose. Tlinath, ancient in her old years, rose with her. The old queen went between, making Shuma, Myzith's rider, the new Weyrwoman.

Their choice was shocking. D'nil, rider of BLUE Taryth, was now the Weyrleader.

Rumors went around. What could a blue do? He couldn't last a full threadfall. But Taryth would. He would.

The Weyr lives. But what can happen next at the new Darilan Weyr?

Looks like I am a BoD. Perny will have to teach me how to do this. And it's D'lin, not D'nil.

Thsi should be interesting.

Monkey - it WAS D'lin, but we had to change it, because that's the name of a character in "Dragonsblood."

Really?

Dratted Dragonsblood. Taryth was one of my first bondings, and D'lin was named before DB came out. But I guess it'll have to be changed.

Grrrrrrrrrr.

I don't think a name double is really that big a deal, I mean look at Arith and Tallith.

Possibly...we need more actual members than golds, though.
