Welcome to Fortuna! We are a semi-canon Dragonriders of Pern forum that takes place approximately a hundred turns after AIVAS was destroyed and the Red Star pushed off of its orbit.
08 JUNE During Anuketh's hatching, Midnight Cove raided Fortuna Weyr. Fortuna came out on top — but shaken, injured, and licking their wounds. The new weyrlings are named the Defender Class, in honour of their bravery.

A Bit of Fun Nell Yesterday at 09:46 pm
Although the main part of Southern Fortuna Weyr's home is etched into cliffs and a dormant volcano's cave system, there also is much to be seen outside of the Weyr. Livestock pens, beautiful beaches, fields and forests, and even an obstacle course for training and workouts are easily accessible.

Just because Fortuna lives in a Weyr doesn't mean that they live entirely in the cavern system like the Northern Weyrs. In fact, many of its residents also live in various types of housing outside of the cliffs. Most of the riders and handlers, however, make their homes up the sides of the mountains in complex and intricate rooms; the riders being toward the top, and the handlers in a lower section of the quarters.

Inside of the cave system itself, Fortuna seems like any other Weyr that one would find to the North. There are craft spaces, a forge, dining halls, meeting rooms, archives, an infirmary, and so much more. If you could want it, there is a strong possibility that they have built it here to make themselves comfortable.

The hot springs that run underneath the dormant volcano and into the cave system to provide a bathing area also heat a cavern at the base of the mountain. Sand has been brought into it to provide a man-made hatching cavern that both dragons and whers use; the latter often choosing to lay their eggs closer to the hot springs that leak into the cavern. Stands have been made into the rocky walls as well as built out from them, and there is plenty of room for people to watch the popular events.

The Crystal Isles are not so much a singular mass of islands as a collective name for all of the islands surrounding Southern Fortuna's coastline; named for the beautiful water surrounding them, as well as the cave systems which hold shining crystals within. They are also a way to get to many other spots as well all around Fortuna's half of the Southern Continent.

Lead by intrepid Lord Callum and Lady Paasha, Spire Cove Hold is situated in the Southern Continent, not far from Fortuna Weyr. It is primarily a fishing and dolphineering hold.

Stormhold isn't easy to find when sweeping the cliffs of the southern continent. It's tucked away between various crags and smaller cave systems, but once found the mouth of the ocean cave can seem expansive as it opens above any ship that is sailed between the perilous rocks that keep it safe. Meanwhile, shallow caverns can be seen dotting the clifside with connecting ledges that must be either scaled carefully, or flown to in order to reach.

Iuvat is a menagerie of islands, smaller landmasses, fishing villages, ports, and of course, Iuvat Weyr. It is the home of many individuals who want nothing more than to be left alone to provide for their families, and it is a common stop along trading routes.

Once the home of Ista Weyr and a more traditional Ista Hold, the Trading Post spans a great amount of the island with various villages and cotholds dotting the landscape. There is not true, clear, leadership, and although the area is a major source of trade and culture, it is politically unstable.

Ah, the open sea and sky. It's a beautiful stretch of horizon that meets in the far-off distance, but although it can be pristine and clear one moment, it can turn disasterous the next. Beware the forces of Nature.
