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.

Check here for all FAQ :D

I just joined. What do I do to get started?

If you've read the rules already, then you're ready to go. If you're already familiar with Pern, please take note of Vaioa's unique conditions, most specifically our colors and mine information along with our history.

If you're new to Pern, we'd still love to have you. Not only do we have many members who would love to help educate you, we have a number of resources that can be informative to both the Pern newbie and the seasoned player.

How does time pass at Vaioa?

Vaioa Weyr is run on a 2:1 time ratio. For every one of our real-time months that pass, 2 months pass within the Vaioa universe.

So I think I understand the site. What characters can I bring?

You can see here for all information pertaining to available ranks, as well as what characters are available for transfer.

I don't want a rider. Can I bring someone else?

Yes! :) We like Weyrfolk and Holdfolk as much as riders. Candidates, too, are always welcome, if you want to try your hand at Impression.

I don't want to Impress a green or a blue. Is there any way I can be sure that I get a special dragon?

First of all, all of our dragons are special. We custom write each one to suit their new riders perfectly, so if you are standing as a candidate, rest assured that your dragon is unique and special. The dragons we write all have a lot of time spent on them, regardless of color. It's hurtful for you to assume that you won't like your dragon, just because it is a green or a blue. Color is not a reflection of worth. We'd much rather see a green dragon who is played well and often than a gold dragon who is never played! ^_^

If you want a ranking dragon, or a "higher" color, you need to be an active member. A good way to ensure that you don't end up with a color you don't want is to fill out the Candidate Questionnaire. We cannot promise that you will get the color you request. However, filling out this optional form WILL help us write you a better dragon!


Nobody will RP with me!

If nobody will RP with you, there are a few things you can do to get more threads.

  • How many threads have you made? If you've posted many threads at once, chances are, they won't all get replies. Taking things a little more slowly can help.

  • Are you interacting with many other writers? If you only write with one person most of the time, you're out of luck when they're busy. Try asking some of the other writers if they want to write with you. The more people you have threads with, the more likely it is that replies will come at reasonable times, because you won't be waiting for the same person to reply, all the time.

  • Is your character interacting with only a few other characters? In a busy setting such as a Weyr, this is highly unlikely. Think of who else your character might interact with, and ask that character's writer if they are willing to write a thread with you.

  • Try starting a new thread and labeling it as "Open" or "Open To All"! You can also mention in the Cbox that you started a new thread for anybody who is interested.

  • If nobody seems willing to join your threads, try finding one that somebody else started that is Open To All. If you can reply in that thread, chances are, you've just gotten a thread going.

  • There are usually members lurking in the Cbox who are willing to post. Ask in the Cbox if anybody wants to post with you, and chances are, you will get at least one person who is willing.

  • Re-read your posts. If your character is sitting in his room alone, he is less likely to interact with somebody than if he is sitting in the common room or lower caverns. Make sure your character is in a situation where interaction can occur. Next, make sure your post is long enough to give others room to work with. Super-short posts are often hard to respond to. Or maybe your post is too long? While we all pride ourselves on being good writers, it can be intimidating at times to try to respond to novels. If your post is too short or too long, you can always consider editing it to try to draw more interactions.
Getting others to post with you is actually quite simple. The bottom line is, ask others if they can post with you! Most of the time, they will say 'yes.' :)
