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.

Hello past and present Vaioans! This will be the last mass email you ever receive from the old board. As of today, we will be moving to our new home on Jcink where the site has received a bit of a visual facelift as well as a new driving central plot.

Please check out our new Plot HERE

And our welcoming News Post HERE

Please come hang out with us on our Discord.

The old site will remain open for archival purposes, though the gallery and the user shops have been removed to avoid theft through the forceful conversion to Tapatalk.

We look forward to seeing you on the new site!

Site Move: Launch Date

Posted by Iradial (Admin) at Jun 5 2018, 10:29 PM. 0 comments

Hi Vaioa,

We're excited to announce that the new website will launch on Saturday, June 16th!

This was the earliest date all four admins could be present. This also gives us a little more time to prepare and make sure everything is ready!

Just a reminder: although we have hinted at some changes, know that the new site will pick up right where we left off. You will be able to port your characters as they are, without any changes to history. If you do want to make changes to your characters or roster, however, this is a good time to do it!

Another reminder: we will be deleting the gallery and shop forums soon, to prevent potential art theft from Tapatalk. It's also advised that you remove art from your character profiles. Deleting profiles or posts is not necessary, as Tapatalk has little to gain from those.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions. All things will be revealed soon.


The Admin Team

Imminent Site Move - PLEASE READ

Posted by Fishy (Admin) at May 19 2018, 04:16 PM. 0 comments

Well, it's happening. Tapatalk has bought out Zetaboards as well and we are going to be forcefully "upgraded" to their "service". Unfortunately, Zetaboards does not allow database backups and so it will be a new, squeaky clean forum. We're in the process of moving to Jcink and will have links for you soon, as well as a plot to move us forward on the new host and a few upgrades we think you'll like.

We have the skeleton of the board (As well as informational topics and adoptables) moved over to the new service. It looks really, really great! We managed to archive and save (as well as move) all past hatchings so those will be available on the new board. More info is heading your way in the coming week. We advise you to back up your characters and favorite threads now, as Tapatalk is already sending out board previews and the conversion may or may not be on the near horizon.

Hatching Conditions: Basteth's Second Clutch

Posted by Esuta (Admin) at May 7 2018, 01:42 PM. 0 comments

Hatching Conditions: Spring has started slowly, with the same cooler conditions that have begun giving Pern so many problems continuing. Itíll be a clear, chilly morning when the call goes out that the eggs are wobbling, and the first egg will crack shell just before lunch. There arenít as many holders attending as usual, so the party after the hatching will seem emptier than expected. Between the tensions over food supply and the fact itís a month into spring and itís just now warm enough to begin planting there are many people who are busy or just electing not to come despite invitations.

The hatching will be opened up officially a while in advance so there is time for hatching openers. These conditions will help those who wish to write an opener in advance. If you cannot attend the hatching, many people will be happy to post your openers for you. Feel free to PM a friend or an admin your opening post. Remember that you do not have to be present to Impress.

Please refer to the Hatching FAQ for further questions.

For those who are participating for the first time, here are some hints. Candidates are required to be wearing the traditional robes - it helps people know instantly where they need to be directed to. These robes are white and usually made from coarser, cheaper materials, as the Weyr goes through a lot of them. They can wear it over clothing, but most prefer not to, as it can get pretty hot on the sands. Sandals are part of the uniform, protecting the feet from actual burns but still letting most of the heat through - this is a mute symbol of how dedicated they are to getting a dragon. Bare feet are permissible, if foolhardy, but boots will be frowned upon. A rope belt is issued with the robe, but many candidates prefer to substitute their own proper belts.

A Candidate, upon hearing or being informed of the hum, should make preparations as fast as possible; there is no telling when the eggs will actually start to crack. They want to look as presentable as possible, so in addition to getting dressed, they usually will wash and put up or let down their hair, if it is long. As soon as they are ready, they progress to the Hatching Sands.

When they arrive, they greet the clutchmother, similar to the egg Touching. They are free to interact with other Candidates, but at this point, they are mostly waiting for the eggs. Traditionally, the boys stand to one side and the girls to another, but nobody will bat an eye if mixed gender groups stand together, especially if they are friends.

We'll see you at the hatching!

Posted by Contrition (Admin) at Mar 17 2018, 08:00 PM. 0 comments

Hello! Our next Threadfall, Threadfall 9, will be going live on March 24, a week from today! Conditions can be found HERE if you would like to pre-write a post, but the event threads will remain open, so it is by no means necessary to pre-write if you choose to participate :)

That means that this is the last call to submit riders for injury randomization. Please PM all submissions (if you have not already done so) to VaioaAdmin no later than 11:59pm on March 23. All final randomized injuries will be posted on the morning of March 24.

News Update 2.13.18

Posted by Fishy (Admin) at Feb 13 2018, 11:07 PM. One comment

Hello friends! Just a short news post for you:

  • Green Hamask has been caught which means there will be eggs soon! Keep an eye out!

  • There is a fire lizard hatching going on in the lower caverns!

  • Threadfall is still coming up soon so there's time yet to send a PM to VaioaAdmin asking to randomize an injury. Please let us know the severity of the injury you are looking for.

  • A Weyr Council is being held to address the food crisis and all are invited to participate, no matter their rank.

  • One of our lovely queen dragons will be flying very soon Ė the end of February or the first week of March. Now is the time to make sure you've sent in candidate questionnaires or make changes to them. Get those male dragons ready!

  • Just as a reminder: Please inform the staff when you are going to be dropping or ONPCing a character! It helps us to keep the listings fresh and our candidate tracker accurate. You never have to apologize for a character not working out, but we need to know to keep track of things. Thank you!

News Update 1.20.18

Posted by Iradial (Admin) at Jan 20 2018, 04:51 PM. 0 comments

Hi Vaioa! It's time for some news:

  • The Weyr Council has decided. Caylan of Gray Parath is Vaioa's interim Weyrleader! They deserve a special congratulations, as they are the first Gray pair to ever hold Weyrleadership.

  • Coal Wings open positions have also been filled. Wyn of Graphite Nespeth has been promoted to Wingsecond, and Sh'ol of Graphite Hellioth has been promoted to Wingthird.

  • With all this new leadership in place, we might as well test them. It's time for an on-screen Northern Threadfall! If you have a pair you would like to receive a randomized injury, please send a PM titled Threadfall Injury to the VaioaAdmin account with the name of the rider(s) you would like injured and specify whether you prefer light, medium, or heavy injuries.

  • We are also opening sign-ups for the next firelizard hatching! If you would like your character to Impress a firelizard, please send a PM to VaioaAdmin with the name of your character(s). We may also accept walk-ins, depending on how many people sign up.

  • Speaking of hatchingsóthere is a wher run happening now! We'll have eggs soon, but we need some chasers first!
