Date: 2006-08-01 Relevant to: Arolos
Summary: "We are about to go into our eleventh month," D'fyd said in his now traditional lecture. "Brace yourself for facts again. Bronzes should be 30 ft, Browns 27 ft, Blues 22-23 ft, and Greens at 18-19 ft. Their growth rate will be slowing down considerably now and they will put on muscles and mass instead of length in any quantity. Now in this month as a class you will be doing a lot more flying to get formations second nature, and errand flying to holds and weyrs to practice *betweening*. It is imperative that you and your lifemate have a strong mental bond for all the close formations that you will be doing and we will do some advanced exercises on that too. By the end of the month, you will be more like the real thing in terms of dragon rider status and you will start to be accorded the respect due one of the defenders of Pern. It is your duty to live up to that expectation for your sake and the sake of your dragon.”
