Welcome to Vaioa,

a desert triumvirate of Hold, Weyr, and Mine. Thread's return and bandit raiding brought strife between weyr and hold, but the bandits' recent defeat has returned the region to an uneasy peace. Now, a shipwreck on a forgotten continent and the decision to settle this rediscovered land has opened up a world of opportunity to Vaioa, if only they can handle the dangers.

The heat of Summer is fading and the skies are growing overcast. There is a damp mist that lays over the Weyr early in the morning now, making the rocky ledges slippery and dangerous until things dry off.
