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 Origin of the Wher Troop

Turn 1257 saw a spike in violent holdless activity, which culminated in a planned and deadly attack on Vaioa Mine. In response, Masterminer Pertor equipped whers and handlers to fight and patrol as part of the defense of Vaioa, and thus the Wher Troop was formed. The fledgling troop soon began to flourish. As it grew larger and the bandit threat grew worse, the troop split into specialized squads: Iron, Steel, Pewter, and Brass.

Each squad was organized for combat. Iron was close range, consisting of the largest whers and fiercest fighters. Steel was close and medium range, specializing more in strategy, but still an effective fighting unit. Pewter was medium and long range, consisting of smaller, faster whers and specializing in scouting. Brass was the support squad, consisting of healers, candidates, and wherlings who had yet to finish combat training.

With the defeat of Terema and her Rogue Handlers in 1264, Vaioa had peace for the first time in turns. In exchange for this peace, however, the Wher Troop lost much of its purpose. Whers were still invaluable as working animals, but those handlers who had specialized in fighting became obsolete.


The Wher Troop Today

Everything changed with the rediscovery of the Southern Continent. Many wherhandlers moved south and found new purpose there, assisting with the construction of Cove Weyrhold or patrolling against the dangers in the surrounding jungle. It soon became clear that the old structure of the troop would no longer work, especially with the split between the North and South.

Therefore the Wher Troop has reorganized. They retained specialized squads, but instead of sorting handlers by fighting style, they are now sorted by profession and location. Steel specializes in patrol and fighting, Pewter in the construction and maintenance of Cove Weyrhold, and Brass in healing; these three squads are located in the South.

Handlers are not restricted to one job; they are merely organized into squads by the job they do most. For example, a wherhandler can do both patrolling and construction, but because they patrol more, they would be sorted into Steel. Any handler of any squad can still go exploring. This allows great flexibility for handlers of different squads to work together.

Iron Squad, located in the North, is the exception. Because fewer handlers stayed at Vaioa than went South, there are not enough to split into specialized squads. Instead, all handlers here regardless of profession form one squad and report to the same elected officers.

This is the second major change with the new Wher Troop. The number of officers per squad has dropped from three to two, and each officer has equal footing; there are no Firsts or Seconds. Rather than being appointed by the Masterminer, officers are elected by the members of the Wher Troop each turn. Whether in the North or the South, these officers will serve as leadership for the Troop and as representatives in Weyr or Hold councils.
