Description

Although the events concerning him and his dour guardian Lytol are less connected to the rest of the books plot; almost a self-contained novella, they do setup what is to come very well and make for an extremely nice interlude. When Meron responds rudely to Lessa, Fandarel forcibly removes him, and lets Lessa take his place at the distance-viewer, followed by Sangel and Lord Oterel of Tillek Hold.

N'ton and the dragonriders take Robinton and four others to Telgar Hold, before N'ton leaves to ride a sweep. Jaxom becomes concerned after noticing the little egg is rocking, but has failed to hatch, and is being ignored. After talking with them about the fire lizards — and warning that she will not tolerate any shirking of duties because of them — Kylara leaves, and Brekke notes that fire lizards could be given to non-weyrfolk to Impress, giving them «a small taste of dragon». Brekke would like to see her Impress a fighting dragon», F'nor said in a casual way, watching his half-brother's face closely.

Some data may reset according to the player’s overall progress and must be re-obtained; however, defeating a powered-up monster will reveal the lesser monsters of the same species (e. It is also true that in Dragonquest we get the first few hints that Pern is changing (something which will be explored later in the series), such as with the efficiency obsessed master Fandarell rather surprising Lessa by noting that women in the smith hall worked on any engineering or design projects they could, or Brekke’s outright question to F’nor as to why a woman could not ride a fighting dragon, a comment to which F’nor gently responds that “fighting thread is hard work” to which Brekke tartly observes “so is running a weyr.

As the Candidates arrive, Felessan reveals to Jaxom that Brekke is amongst them; Lessa hoping she will re-Impress. At Southern Weyr, where nearly every rider and their dragon are attempting to find fire lizard clutches, Brekke is approached by Rannelly — Kylara's nurse — who is looking for Kylara. F'nor soon leaves the meeting and goes to get F'lar from his quarters, reporting on the division of the fire lizard eggs, and giving him the grubs from the Southern Continent. Two heads popped out of an upper window of the apprentice barracks, two more at the journeyman's Hold.D'ram, the Ista Weyrleader, later takes over the meeting and states that T'reb was justified in his attempt to take the knife, as the tithes to the Weyrs do not reflect the increased productivity of Pern that came about as the result of the Second Long Interval allowing for expansion — and thus Terry caused the problem by not gifting him the knife. F'lar and Lessa arrive — the others noting the dragons on the fire-heights moving aside to make room for Mnementh and Ramoth — followed by Kylara, who arrives with Meron.

Some time later, at Benden Weyr, Ramoth receives word from a watchrider at Lemos Hold that Thread is falling in northeast Lemos, when it was expected to fall later in the day in the southwest.She reveals to F’nor that as someone brought up in the crafts she is afraid of being overcome by her dragon’s sexuality when her queen rises to mate, especially since she is in love with F’nor.

And while I appreciate Weyrleader R'mart's thoughtfulness in spite of his recent — ah — problems at Telgar Hold, I shall ride the Benden Weyr dragon. Lytol then tells him about the clutch of fire lizards taken to Nabol by Kylara, wondering how the Lords will react to seeing Lord Meron with a fire lizard. Andemon doesn't know, and goes to look at the grubs, exclaiming that they're a parasite that they've been trying to eradicate from Nerat.

Lessa reveals that Lord Groghe, upon learning of the existence of the distance-viewer at Fort Weyr, was going to demand that dragonriders travel to the Red Star to fight Thread. F'nor attempts to lift her spirits by praising her, and goes to kiss her, only for the two to embrace. McCaffrey fleshes out her world with for the most part nicer characters and includes some truly fascinating politics, albeit politics that takes some concentration to keep up with. His craftsmen came racing out of the Hall, riding cloaks askew on their shoulders, fitting their instruments in felt wrappings as they came. Unfortunately, the Oldtimers; as the dragonriders from the past are known, come from a Pern four hundred turns distant, a time when the weyrs commanded far more power and privilege than they do now and held themselves aloof from the rest of Pern society.
