As the Red Star rises for the 11th Pass in history, it rains down the ancient enemy, Thread. Through fire, fall, and death, the riders of the 11th Pass rise to meet their foe. They are the Rising Stars of Pern.


Rising Stars is a new, semi-traditional canon club set in the 20th Turn of the 11th Pass. We're bursting with fresh ideas and we can't wait to share them with you. We're laid-back and friendly with an open mind to our members and their ideas. Everyone is a hero at Rising Stars of Pern


HISTORY Dragons Reach Weyr

Dragons Reach Weyr was founded on the far Western reach of the Southern Continent in the middle of the 10th Pass, Turn 25 and is 295 Turns old. Using stone cutting techniques that were recovered from AIVAS's memory archive in the 9th Pass, Dragons Reach Weyr is carved into the side of a high, plunging mountain face. The rocky region is difficult to navigate by foot or wagon, and generally requires the wings of a dragon to reach unless using the tunnel that was built to allow entry to tithing trains.

As the cycle tends to go, Dragons Reach Weyr dwindled some in numbers during the Interval between the 10th and 11th Pass, but now firmly in Turn 20, Dragons Reach Weyr is at full strength and is a commanding, powerful presence on the peninsula where it resides. The current Weyrwoman has been the Senior Gold at Dragons Reach since Turn 5 of the 11th Pass, while the Weyrleader's position has switched hands multiple times, until landing on the current Weyrleader in Turn 19.

We are currently in Turn 20 of the 11th Pass.

Black Shoals Hold

Black Shoals Hold is a coastal port on the eastern banks of the peninsula and it is as old as the Weyr itself. It was founded in Turn 30 of the 10th Pass and is 290 Turns old. The shores there are rocky and rough, and the people more so. The main source of income for the people of Black Shoals is importing and exporting goods via ships across the channel to the mainland of the Southern Continent. The family that leads Black Shoals has a long history on the peninsula, and people revere their power almost as much as if they were dragonriders.
