No New Posts Wher Hatching Ground

Across the Bowl from the hub of Weyr activity at the Lower Caverns, the Wher Hatching Ground can only be reached by following a dark corridor deep into the side of the volcano. There are few glows in this corridor, in consideration of the nesting gold. The Ground itself contains a bed of steaming sand, but there are no stands on the walls. It is a small cavern with a low roof, and water drips occasionally to the floor.

No New Posts Wher Candidates' Quarters

A small cavern within the Weyr, adjacent to the Wher Hatching Grounds, has been designated for wher candidates to sleep in. This is far from the 'fancy' quarters of dragonrider candidates, as males and females do not receive separate quarters. The beds are basic cots, and few amenities are allowed. Glows are kept to a minimum in consideration of the gold Wher living next door.

There is no separate room for the handler to sleep in, but a small bed with furs is provided. Hopefully there will be enough caves for all, or sharing might be required...

No New Posts Hot Springs/Sauna

Weyrfolk who witnessed the latest Hatching (and weren't sitting too close to the Sands) were inspired by the relaxing effects of the heat and steam. Thus, they decided to re-visit a cavern discovered near the Healing Caverns. It had originally been deigned useless due to the extreme heat seeping throughout this room from its pool of hot water. Water also drips from stalactites, causing steam to rise where the droplets strike the hot rock of the floor.

No New Posts The Lake

Located across from the Lower Caverns in the volcano's crater, centuries of rain collection and erosion have resulted in a pristine, crescent shaped lake. In times of heavy rainfall, the two points of the crescent meet, forming a small island of forested land in the centre of the lake.

Located adjacent to the lake, the centuries of erosion have allowed for viable soil to develop. Grass has flourished and trees are growing strong. The herdbeasts are kept in this area with their own drinking pond by crude fences to prevent their wandering into the Lower Caverns or out of the Weyr.

The only ground entrance to the Weyr is a tunnel wide enough for five herdbeasts to pass through and high enough for a dragon to easily walk through. This leads out from the volcano's crater to a lush valley landscape, which slopes gently down to a natural, harbour-like cove. On either side of this valley slope is the rugged jungle of the Weyr's island.

Ikros Weyr is located within a canyon, at the head of which is a waterfall. A river winds its way along the bottom of the canyon, as the steep walls open up into a sloping, lush valley.

No New Posts Hatching Grounds

The Hatching Grounds were carved into the base of the cliff by the churning of the river centuries ago. As the waterfall retreated upriver, it left this smooth-walled cavern with a layer of white sand, eroded from the limestone itself. It is located on the western side of the river just down from the main Lower Caverns area.

No New Posts Candidates' Quarters

A small cavern on the eastern side of the river has been devoted to housing the candidates. It is located a dragonlength or so from the canyon's base, with a narrow ramp the only means of accessing the ground. Since it was shaped by natural forces, the floor and walls can be rather uneven in spots. Rickety bunks are the best that could be scrounged up for sleeping arrangements.

No New Posts Weyrlings' Barracks

A little ways farther down the canyon, on the same side of the river as the Candidates' Quarters, are the Weyrlings' Barracks. The entrance to the Barracks requires a bit of a step up, as the base of the tunnel is higher than the canyon floor. From there, the short tunnel slopes downwards and widens out into a low-roofed, wide cavern. Pallets are laid out for riders to sleep near their new dragons.

No New Posts Dragonriders' Weyrs

The cavern walls on either side of the river are pockmarked with natural weyr formations, and those large enough to house a dragon and rider are all being used. The largest weyrs are located lower down on the cliff walls, while the highest are rather small, rough, and exposed to the unpredictable weather above the sheltered canyon. Thus, it only makes sense that the Shadows reside in the uppermost reaches, while the Knights claim the lower quarters. Stairs? Work is still in progress.

No New Posts Lower Caverns

The Lower Caverns represent the largest cavern eroded by the river, as well as the most recent, for they are located right beside the lake at the bottom of the waterfall on its western side. In addition to the main Dining Cavern, a number of small tunnels, including some that only a flitter would fit in, branch off randomly into the limestone cliff.

No New Posts Waterfall

The waterfall plunges down the cliff face and into a small lake, carved out of the rock at its base by the force of the churning water. Smaller rivulets of water stream down the cliff on either side of the main waterfall, producing a series of smaller waterfalls that lack its pounding force. The lake's waters are kept cool by the constant mixing and are a deep turquoise colour, as a result of the mineral content of the rock. At the lower end of the lake is where the river begins, wide at first and then narrowing, as it picks up speed on its journey to the valley.

The canyon widens out into a large valley, surrounded by steep cliffs, with the river winding its way through the middle. Trees huddle close to the cliff walls and at the southern end of the valley, while a lush meadow dotted with shrubs climbs its way up to the Weyr proper. The herdbeasts and wherries kept for feeding the dragons graze throughout the valley.
