Autumn storms have been making travel difficult, both by ground and air but that hasn't kept a few notable figures from visiting Fort Weyr. Gossip in the caverns say that the men and women seen have all been Crafters, to judge by their badges and knots. Masters and senior Journeymen alike have all ushered quickly to the council chambers where the Weyrleadership is said to have held some quiet and hushed meeting for several hours.

What does this mean for the weyr? Rumors are that the Leadership is organizing excursions for the incoming candidates. Just like last cycle, candidacy at Fort will have less focus on chores and have more focus on exploring Pern and all of its crafts.
