Affray Weyr is an officially approved Role Play group set in Anne McCaffrey's world of Pern. The group publishes a quarterly Fan-zine 'Stands of Siver' or SOS for short which includes group Play by e-mail (PBM), short stories, on going series, poems and artwork. Established by our hardworking Editor Diana the group continues to florish.
Affray is a unique club, unlike many we have no writing requirement - our motto - Write what you want to write, when you want to write it and above all enjoy it, writing should be fun.
Affray’s fictional timespan extends from the founding of the Weyr and the approach of the Red Star, to the present day of Threadfall. In our timeline, AIVAS was found, but broke shortly after, so the events of All the Weyrs of Pern never occurred. Our 10th Pass Pern has Thread.
Affray has plenty of room for all types of characters; (Only one queenrider per person, please!) we are happy to allow you to have ranking characters, with the understanding that if you are inactive for a certain period of time, your characters will be transferred to Limbo Wing/Hold/Hall, and should you wish to return, you may pick them up again at any point in their personal timelines.
Our vast timespan is intended to give everyone a chance to write what interests them. If you’ve always wanted to write about the founding of a Weyr, or if you are a Threadfall junkie, this is the place for you.
Affray is a member-owned paper zine club that also online RP's. If you are interested, our rules are in the "Files" section. Lurkers welcome! We have a separate RP group, AffrayRolePlay which you need to join to RP.
