Many people have expressed the desire to ride atop one of Anne McCaffrey's marvelous Thread-fighting dragons of Pern! Here is your chance! Morlevan Weyr is a Play-By-Email Weyr established in 1999, approved by the Dragonlady herself in January of 2000, and re-approved by the Kitchen Table staff in 2001 (twice!)
We are an active, energetic group of writers, artists, and poets who welcome others seeking to create a small haven for Pern enthusiasts here on Earth.

Morlevan Weyr, and its Holds and Halls, are set in the Alternate 6th Interval. This is about the time of Moreta's ride in the McCaffrey books. In our timeline, we have also experienced a planetwide plague which killed off many people. That plague caused Weyrleaders L'saaric and Damacea to fly forward in time in an effort to escape the devastation of the sickness. They brought the last surviving dragons on Pern with them, as well as a few people who had escaped the dreaded illness and founding Morlevan Weyr on its former site.
It is now Turns later and dragonkind is once again firmly established at Morlevan Weyr -- although it is the only Weyr on Pern in this timeline. Pern is currently experiencing an Interval -- one of those times when Turns pass and no Thread is present to rain destruction on the planet and its inhabitants. The plague is behind them and the Dragonriders of Morlevan Weyr look forward to the day when they can fulfill their purpose and fly against the threat of Thread.
