But there are kittens in the Weyrbowl.


The threat of the summer rains have turned into the promise in the fall. It rains almost all the time nowadays, and slowly the rain turns from warm to cold to freezing, and at the last snow begins to sink lower from the heights of the mountains into the valleys.

Just about anywhere in Sinthera can be accessed from the Weyrbowl. Originally a low valley, it's been enclosed to protect it, though the south side was left open so dragons could still get in without trouble. Tunnels branch out in every direction, and though it's easy to take the wrong path if you don't know what you're doing, once you're accustomed to it the 'bowl is a handy shortcut to anywhere in the Weyr.

Hey, you gotta have some way to get to the other side of the Weyr. All the hallways in Sinthera are stone, having been carved into the mountain, and most are lit at regular intervals by glowbaskets, which are changed regularly.

Riders' Weyrs
Carved into the mountain long ago is a system of caves in which the dragons of Sinthera and their riders live. Larger weyrs, where queens and other larger dragons live, are at the bottom, with the smaller ones toward the top. Tunneled-out hallways connect the weyrs, but each has a door to shut unwanted visitors out.

Handlers' Rooms
Due to whers' extreme sensitivity to light, they and their handlers live underground. The common room can be accessed from either Weyrbowl or the Lower Caverns, and from there one finds several hallways leading off to the rooms.

Candidates' Rooms
Set up much like the wherhandlers' rooms, except aboveground, near the kitchens, with a single common room leading to the single rooms. There are also only two hallways, one for male candidates and one for female candidates, with seven rooms on either side and one at the end for each hallway, creating a total of fifteen rooms to each hallway.

In: ----
Weyrling/Wherling Rooms
Near the candidates' rooms, these are set up the exact same way, with only a few differences: there are four hallways rather than two, with two hallways dedicated to each group and one to each sex of said group; and there are thirty rooms in each hallway, so that you don't have to have two humans and two dragons or whers crowding together.

Everyone loves food, right? Well, maybe not, but it is necessary, so this is where it's prepared. The kitchens are split into two sections: the actual kitchens, where food is made and stored, and the dining area, which is scattered with tables and chairs where people actually eat.

The Lower Caverns
This is where everything, from wine to records, is stored. There are worse placed to get lost- nonperishable food is stored here- but do be careful, all the same. The lower caverns are near the kitchens for easy access to food supplies.

Hatching Sands
The largest of the Sands is the one used most often, and has two entrances: one gaping ground entrance and a second at the top of the cavern for dragons to fly into. Stands are carved into the stone surrounding the eternally hot sands. There are a few other side caverns as well, because clutchmothers have rarely been known to like sharing their Sands with each other, and no one wants fights that might endanger the eggs.

The corrals consist of a massive area of the bowl set aside for runners, herdbeasts, and wherries. Stables for the runners and shelter for the other animals joins the wall of the Weyr, and has space enough within to house all the animals. The animals, save for the runners, are the sustenance of the dragons, and often Flights start from the corrals.

Sinthera Lake
Creatively named, no? As you can probably imagine, Sinthera Lake is frozen over most of the year; however, except during the depths of winter, the cover of ice can usually be broken without much trouble, and in summer, it tends to melt completely. Some fish, along with other such creatures, can be found in the lake, but not many- it is, after all, very cold so far north. Even so, the lake is a popular recreation spot, especially during the summer, when you can actually stay in it for more than a few minutes without freezing into a solid block of ice.

Hold Surrounds
Sinthera Hold rests against the wall of a cliff and overlooks the only flat land in the mountains around the Weyr. On this land, a few herdbeast corrals and very small farm plots have been set up. Atop the cliffs are the drum heights and a couch for a watchdragon that has long gone unused. The Hold is concealed almost entirely within the walls of the cliff, but can be entered by several large metal doors constructed to be perfectly balanced.

Entrance Hall
When first entering the Hold, you shall come upon a huge vaulted room with at least five levels of balconies above it. Mounted glows keep it warmly lit, and archways on the main level lead off to kitchens, the dining hall, and hallways leading to storage halls and craft workshops. Wooden stairs along the outer wall lead up to the other levels.

Dining Hall
This long room is full of tables and lined with fireplaces that keep stew and klah and people warm all day. The end of the hall has a raised platform where the High Table is. This table is reserved for notable people that come to eat at the Hold. Doors lead off to various smaller kitchens that are kept busy all day preparing food.

There are a few small kitchens all next to the Dining Hall, to break the work up into manageable sections and to make it smarter for preparing small meals with just one kitchen. There is always some activity going on in one of these kitchens to keep the Hold fed.

In: ----
Hold Quarters
The upper levels of the Hold are dedicated to housing the people that live there. The rooms range in size from one or two person apartments to rooms large enough for families, with the largest of these rooms belonging the Lord Holder and his family. All rooms have either a door into the Entrance Hall, or possess a window to the outside. On the cliff the grid of closed windows can be seen stretching halfway up the wall.

Storage Caverns
There are several storage rooms, the majority of them being dark, cold places filled with the smell of dry food or medical herbs. They are buried deep within the mountain, and the glows leading to them often go out without being replaced.

Mountain Range
The land that stretches from the far north to the west, covering all of the rugged, inhospitable land too extreme for people, is no-man's land. If you get stuck out here, hopes for escape are close to none. The only things that have managed to make a living up here are the feral dragons, though how and where is impossible to know.

The Volcano
Far from all Holds and Weyrs where the mountains are too treacherous for things to live, instead the rocks grow and flourish into monstrous creatures with lives of their own. The largest of all these ridges and cliffs and peaks is the mighty volcano, large enough to house all of Sinthera within it. It has long been asleep, but years ago when Thread still ate the world, it spewed fire and smoke into the sky.

Feral Caves
Light filters coldly through countless holes in the shelter, some no larger than a flit, and some large enough for whers to fly through. But none is so large as the great chasm directly above. Yet even the strong light of midday cannot penetrate through all the twisting hollows and tunnels of the Feral Weyr, where the only law of the land is what the dragons decree.

Open Skies
That truly endless frontier. An endless field of blue that stretches on forever over the field of jagged rocks. The sky of the ferals is the greatest sky of all, and stretches over any land that has not been claimed by others. Only in Flights do they ever venture over the farthest lying Holds.

The Waterfall
A great cliff rises sharply into the sky, a flat wall of stone. There is but one break in the wall, a crack from which flows a seemingly endless supply of freezing white water. It falls as far as a mountain's height before finally coming to rest in a disturbed lake that flows out into a wide river that continues on out of the mountains.

Uncharted Beyond
There is only one thing farther north than the mountains, and that is an endless tundra covering the top of the world. Nothing can survive there, not even plants. Only dragons can fly over the dead land, and then they must beware of freezing. Beyond the mountains, the Ferals go only where there are no people, which are scant few places now that Thread is gone.

Artorie Weyr
Artorie is set farther south than Sinthera, and has a slightly warmer climate. It is carved from a larger mountain-bound valley with a freshwater river running through it toward the ocean. As such, Artorie has a very healthy sea trade that keeps it fairly rich.

The only Weyr left in the South rests on the shore of a lake, and is crafted not from mountains but from adobe-like buildings and personal weyr houses with metal roofs. It survives well on the rich land of the south.
