For players new to the world of Pern, we also recommend the Digital Guide to Pern, aka the Pern Wiki.
2nd Pass Background
ToF takes place in the 17th year of the Second Pass, a time when people still remember that humanity came to settle Pern from across the stars and the technology that got them there, but are rapidly losing access to the ability to use, support, and recreate that knowledge.
About Fort Weyr
Fort, the oldest Weyr, is the IC focus of Pern's great renewable Air Force.
How we see the five varieties of dragons thematically, and their relative uses, sizes, and duty paths in the Second Pass.
About Holds and Holders
Holders are the majority of people on Pern, and we focus here on Fort, Ruatha, and Southern Boll.
About Crafts and Crafters
The Second Pass is a fascinating time for Crafters: they have access to the theories and history of an Earth that created vast spaceships with faster-than-light travel, but no materials or ability to recreate those wonders; instead, they have to learn to translate what they know into what they have.
