9th Interval Weyrs & Weyrholds


In our version of modern-day Pern there are 4 true Weyrs: Fort, Igen, Ista, and Southern; and 10 major Weyrholds: Great Falls, Honshu, Ierne Island, Monaco Bay, Northridge, Rocky Crater, Skybroom, Sunset Cliffs, Telgar Plains, and Xanadu. A few dozen minor Weyrholds remain, but only these 14 locations currently have breeding queens in residence.

The dragonrider population of most non-queen Weyrholds, of which there were several hundred at the start of the 9th Interval, died out within the first one hundred fifty Turns of the Interval. All new riders since the mid-2800s have Impressed at one of these 14 locations.

Name: Minor Weyrholds
Founded: various times in the 9th Interval
Spokesman: J'elyn & blue Perikath, Dragonholder of Seaside Weyrhold
More Information: Minor Weyrholds -- those without a breeding queen in residence -- are represented at all major Council, Conclave, and Weyrleaders' Council meetings by a representive elected from among the Council of Dragonholders. Of equal standing with a Lord Holder or Senior Weyrwoman, a Dragonholder governs his or her minor Weyrhold for life. Their successor is always a dragonrider, but not necessarily a blood relation to the previous Dragonholder. A rider of any color of dragon can be a Dragonholder. The typical minor Weyrhold has less than thirty dragons of fighting age in residence, though there are some exceptions.
