With the end of the rains comes added hardship for the people of Landing. Fish have all but vanished with the storms--and while the larder is still stocked, it won't last long. Tensions are high, even as the council does their best to keep the grim news quiet.

Story Events and Discoveries

Given this is the First Pass, there are still many things about the dragons that need to be discovered--in fact, almost everything. Events such as the first to learn to fly, the first to learn to go between, the first queen to rise--these are significant and important events.

To make these available to members to play out in a way that's fair, here's how it works. After making a minimum of 75 IC posts, you can claim a Story Event from the list below (or suggest one that's not already there). When the time comes, it will be up to you to make the thread where your character discovers whatever aspect of dragonriding or the setting the event involves--and then presents their finding to the other characters. Additional details and other plots are elaborated on through play with the other members. These threads will be marked with a [!] to indicate they are Story Events, and will always be open threads. You will have to guide and lead this mini plot, and involve other members in it!

Each Story Event may be claimed by one person, but you may invite an additional person to help you get the thread off the ground. Once it's set up, it must become open to all players to participate.

After a Story Event thread has been fully played out and finished, you may claim and play out another Story Event if you wish. However, you may only claim one Story Event at a time, and should you go inactive for a period longer than two months, the Story Event may be made available for another member to claim.
