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!
Dragonfalls is in the throws of winter, but that just means people are thrown together down in the Caverns more!
Greenrider Tavia had a nice flirtatious chat with L'keri. Her heart might belong to a wayward bronzerider, but that doesn't mean a girl can't have a bit of fun!
Young Benna had a chat with R'axe about growing up in different climates to Dragonsfall. They decide to have dinner together to continue their discussion. She also runs into J'nev on the beach after the bronzerider was washing his dragon. It turns out his Ankioth had caught her green once and they both remember that event... fondly. But when Benna points out they don't have to wait for a mating flight, J'nev's budding relationship with Aileyan leads him to refuse. For now.
J'nev also sits down for a drink with L'keri and fills him in on what he had missed in Cyan Wing. The young bronzerider does not miss his former Wingleader one bit, and fill L'keri in on of U'kaiah's infamous deeds. However K'mai warns L'keri not to spend too much time around J'nev. His old friend catches him up on all the happenings in his life.
Finally, K'mai runs into Greenrider Aileyan's son, Ravyan, as he is picking up his daughter. They share a foster mother. The bluerider has a very serious chat with the Weyrbrat about babies and dragons.

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.

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.

Lots of new faces mingling with the old at the Harper Hall these days.
Tasni seems to be settling in. She meets Merlish, who is secretly pursuing a new passion - runners! The young bride of Eilomar does not want Tasni to know her true reasons for being in the Record room, and instead makes an excuse about wanting a new book to help her cook more healthily now that the diet she has put herself and husband on seems to be having the desired affect.
But she was not the only one Tasni bumped into in her quest to understand the Southern Continent. Ueltin also payed a visit to the archives and had a chat with the Journeyman Archivist. Though he has reasons other than just being friendly. The Journeyman has returned to the Hall after a long stint journeying. During his last assignment, Ueltin got himself into a spot of trouble when the Holder's daughter accused him of getting her pregnant. The journeyman admits to tough-as-nails Master Jayala that it was in fact the Holder's wife he had slept with. The Master was less than impressed, but did ask him while he was at their Hall to keep an eye on their visitor from the North and try to find out what she was really doing in their Hall.
Jayala, meanwhile, has been busy with her duties of recruiting female apprentices. Writing a letter to one such prospect makes her reflect on her own journey to the Hall. While she had once been a respected teacher in a Weyrhold, after the earthquake that destroyed Thayan Peak and the moving of the Weyrfolk to Dolphin Cove, the journeywoman was forced to take steps to ensure her career as a Harper could continue after her Hold fell under the jurisdiction of a hidebound Lord.
A possible Northern spy, a Harper in hiding, a young wife still trying to get pregnant by her gruff elderly husband, and a no-nonsense lady Master... And where exactly is the Hallmaster in all this? Stay tuned for more from the Harper Hall!

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.

This has been a difficult time for Sunstone Seahold and the residents there. However, it seems as though they are recovering from the awful events when the Weyr was decimated. Sunstone received only a sideswipe from the tsunami in comparison. The tidal surge did wipe out parts of the lower outlying portions of the Hold but the main hold itself was not flooded.
Some of the residents seem to have moved along in the lives and it looks as though Devrin and Sophque's relationship is developing.
We need you... more stories, more pirates, more fun!

Runners sent from Sunstone found the Hall smashed and broken by the huge wall of water that hit it after the Volcano's blast.
Survivors were found and taken back to Sunstone Seahold where they were given supplies and shelter until decisions could be made about their futures.
The Hall Master was not found.
