Take a break!

Torayan Weyr links: Don't forget about our Yahoo! Groups lists! All three have web pages with archives of files for you to use, including Thread charts, weyrling training guides, timelines, and what-have-you. Members, you need to be logged into Yahoo! to access these links.

TorayanWeyr - our role-playing list.
TorayanYounguns - our Weyrling and Candidate lesson role-playing list.
TorayanNonsense - our OOC chat list. Watch out for flying Marshmallow Peeps! (General Patches, we hardly knew ye!)

Naming your Character: In keeping with Anne McCaffrey's rules for Pern fan clubs, we are not allowed to use any names whatsoever from the books. Here are some resources to help you get creative with character names. Have fun!

All the Weyrs List contains a comprehensive list of dragon names from the books, including The Skies of Pern, as well as a list of fan-created names from MUSH and MOO games.
DragonRiders of Pern, another offline, play-by-email Weyr, has a complete list of human, dragon, and fire-lizard names from the books, including The Skies of Pern. (see "Reserved Names" in their left frame)
Fantasy Name Generator is a fun way to come up with completely original, non-copyrighted names. You can choose from several categories and randomize, or customize the results... say, to end in "-th." Now, why would you want to do a thing like that...?
Kabalarians If you want to adapt a regular Terran name, or find an unusual name, this is the place. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the alphabetical index.

Pern Information

All the Plants of Pern : Encyclopedia of plant species known and used by Pernese settlers. Created by Becki, one of our former members, so it gets top billing.
Elrhan's Pern Site : Including the Pern Encyclopedia and Bloodlines. Link updated!
Pern Demographics Wondering whether Menolly could really have outrun Thread? This and many other fascinating (to Pern freaks like me anyway) issues explored here.
Sariel's Guide to Pern : Guide to the series, including DLG errata and cast lists, as well as Pern fandom.

Sabria's Guide to Pern : Includes original information on riding straps and rank cords. Geared more toward members of MUSHes and MOOs, but PbEM players like ourselves will also find it helpful.
Tasni's Pern Roleplaying Resources: Categorized links on Craft information, dragons, and fandom in general. Immensely helpful in creating a "realistic" role-play. Link updated!
Anne McCaffrey Archives at DelRey. Features several short articles about the creation of Pern and its most beloved characters.
Pern at the ODP : Categorized list of Pern links.
