Welcome to Kitaro Weyr!

Thanks to Spark Imagination for the templates!

A plague swept Pern, and life struggled. People died in droves, and those that survived didn't do so unscathed. They became...different. Some of them grew tails, or claws, while some are unchanged. The dragons, too, changed. New colours, extra limbs - and some even Impress to someone already a Rider. The whers did not escape the changes, becoming able to change their colours, and blend into their surroundings. We live in interesting times.

Memorial Garden

A short distance from the Weyr proper, there is a large garden, with markers placed amongst the flowers and trees. Each marker bears the name of those lost to the plague. In the case of Bonded pairs, the names of both are inscribed upon the marker. It is a solemn, peaceful place, to honour their memory
