Callamere: Wher Information
Entered by: Lethe Loupe/Lynn
Date: 2008-02-12 Relevant to: Arolos
Summary: General history of how Whers came to be on Pern as well as a general information and care guide for the Callamere whers.
Article: Before we go further, please note that there are some details about whers that are specific to Arolos Weyr and the rules of this game. Yes, Ms. McCaffrey recently wrote a book dealing with whers (Dragonkin), but we were weaving whers into our game long before her book came out. There are also internal continuity issues between Dragonkin and what she wrote of whers previously, so we decided to stick with Arolos custom rather than canon when the two conflicted.
