Summary: A brief history of the creation of the newest craft, Whercraft.
Article: Up until the last 20 or so turns whers were almost universally considered to be dangerous, unfeeling beasts. Rare in the north, their primary duties were either in the darkness of mines or as vicious night time guards for Holds and Weyrs. Cruel methods were used to train these poor draconics, including poking with sticks, light to hurt their eyes, withholding of food to keep the whers acting as guards hungry and eager to attack all those other than their wherhandlers.
