The tithe system on Pern consisted of Holds and Halls supplying the Weyrs with provisions so that the dragonriders could concentrate on fighting Thread.

The tithing system was first suggested by Red Hanrahan to Paul Benden as Red began his new hold at Ruatha. The system was formalized when Sean Connell expanded from one weyr (Fort Weyr) to four (Benden Weyr, Telgar Weyr, and Ista Weyr).
