Betweening

OOC:

  • See 'help between' for instructions on the betweening commands.
  • When you want to 'learn' a place from another dragon (this is covered in the help file: help between) remember that said dragon must be envisioning that place.
  • Please make sure that you send Talim as soon as possible with your weyr location choice - if you haven't already. Possible locations are: Above the Pools (off High Above NE Bowl), Sky High Over Northeastern Bowl, Sky High Over Central Bowl, Sky High Over Southeastern Bowl, Sky Over Southeastern Bowl, Sky Over Central Bowl, Sky Over Northeastern Bowl, Forest Weyrs (off the Plateau).
  • Information on how to set up your weyrs/ledges is here: Link
  • It’s really not necessary to have a place for every single between spot on Pern. Really. The key ones to have are the major Weyrs, halls, and hold spots. And, yeah, it can be nice to have some shortcuts to a few favorite places of yours, so you don't have to navigate the skyroom mazes. Ask your friendly WLMs for their between lists, and pick and choose what you'd like!

IC

  • You are doing airborne wing formations under your wingleaders as well as with WLM staff. Sometimes it’ll be small group formation, other times it’ll be everyone.
  • As soon as you're set up, you can live in your new weyrs. It's the end of mucking couches! As soon as your dragons learn to go between, they'll kindly do their business there. Yay! They'll be hunting now, too, so no more food cutting. Just baths and oil.
  • Your first betweening experience will be a one-on-one affair with one of the lovely AWLMs. Expect to be taken up to the star stones, told to memorize them, then to fly straight to Ista Hold and between home.
  • As the month (OOC week) progresses, you'll be learning more places, first by flying straight, and then by getting the coordinates from another dragon. The latter will only happen once you're comfortable with betweening, of course. Without Thread, expect the WLMs to be making sure all is well before teaching you, now that there's no real rush.
  • Don't forget firestone tossing.
