Lanniya and Saibra welcome Loella and her husband Karhal to the Weyr for the Hatching, hoping that Loella might have a pleasant experience so that Lanniya could help her develop her HAD abilities.

After bronzerider J'ackt's stabbing at Dolphin Cove, Timassa arrives at Dragonsfall to inform K'yne that his son has been injured. The brownrider leaves with the greenrider.

Saibra questions Ma'din about his father's visit, but Ma'din gives away no details. Ma'din leaves Saibra with a cryptic statement, that he might be transferring to Dolphin Cove in the future.

Emerald Falls Hold
Captain Zandan interrogated the arrested cotholder, Terren, but he's not very co-operative (or even a good liar).
Harpers Ueltin and Tasni had been seen in Main Hold, visiting the archives. Ueltin just invited himself along but Tasni seems to be very interested in arsons. Which gives some concern to Captain Zandan, who overheard them and has his own reasons to not have anybody poking around any recent fires. Burned skeletons in a closet maybe?
Lord Corowal met Saranni, one of the young women who had arrived to Emerald Falls Hold after Felynaís passing. She has her sights on him.

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.

As always there is something afoot at Sunstone. Whether it's their scheming Lord planning to protect his Headwoman from the unwanted attentions of another Holder. Or the Merchant Taril's obsession with the real identity of a guard by the name of Polson... something is going on here.
If you like intrigue or just plain like to be bad, this is the place for you. We welcome those of you would like to play a less than honest character who can seem upright when called for.

The Hall Master was not found.
