  • 1 Work in Progress, Background of Federated Sentient Planets and the Exploration and Evaluation Corps Before reaching Pern
    • 1.1 Some of them
  • 2 Irish Folks -- Out and About - Category
  • 3 References

There is informaton about this team a long time before they get to Pern. Histroy wise its very important I think. The Exploration and Evaluation Corps team was very experienced

Character Table - After Landing - First Pass there are a few folks that are mection, between the UK and USA Dragonsdawm, but not much more. I thought having them in this table till we had, more infomaton if comes to light would work.

  • Small Contractors
  • Small folks that have smaller stakes,  thing like  that

New Infobox Template for Weyrs

We have a new Infobox for use on Weyr pages - The name is "Infobox Show Weyr" and an example of it in use can be seen at Benden Weyr.

We have location maps for most of the Weyrs and the infobox uses that as its image.  I will be adding a field for the Weyr's Shield in the next couple of days, but I wanted to announce now. 

All of the Parameters are required to be entered for the template to work properly.  The Parameters are "Era Founded", "Continent", and "Major Holds".
