re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

My tabletop group recently started a play-by-post RPG on Wordpress based in the world of Pern. I started feeling nostalgia for my early Pern RP days on PernMUSH, starting back in 1991. After a bit of web browsing, I found a MU* still running with that game's successor. How fun! I was also floored to discover a web site that kept track of all the dragon impressions since then, with my long retired character on the list.

It got me thinking, are there any Banders who are fans of Pern?

Did any of you play on PernMUSH or SoCon? If so, who were you?

re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

I'm a fan of Anne McCaffrey and have most of her Pern books (and also her son Todd's). I never knew there was a game though.

re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

Oh I love Pern (and many of her other books). I have a couple autographs. I had no idea about a game either, too young at that time.

re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

Pern is wonderful! I have all the books, except not all the Todd ones - his writing style was so different I couldn't get into his solo ones sad I also loved the Tower and the Hive series, and Crystal Singer series. She wrote so many good things!

re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

By the way I must have played around 40ish tabletop rpgs in my day, and I do remember hearing about Pern one(s?)( could have been some homebrew thing not sure) but never got the chance to play them myself. Hope you have a fantastic campaign!!!

Look up The Rowan. It's the first of the Tower and the Hive series and it's amazing, in my opinion :)

Also, I forgot to mention The Ship Who Sang and the other ones in that series (some of which were collaborated on with other authors), they are also great!

re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

Oh yes, those were wonderful books, too! Now I'm feeling the urge to read them again.

I never saw an official Pern RPG, but I did GM a homebrew at several conventions in California, back in the 80's. The games always filled up quickly. I loved the sort of people that Pern games attracted. Much like the classic Star Trek and LotR fans, they were always good-hearted folk.

re: Fans of Dragonriders of Pern

I love the Pern books too! Also have read some of her others as well. I really liked the Powers trilogy especially. I need to see about finding some of the ones I've missed, like the Ship books.

You can sometimes find the Ship books at used book stores, or through Thriftbooks.com (oh so many many books there) or they're even all in ebook format now so maybe a library service like Hoopla would have :) Or amazon. Or somewhere :)

Hahah 'a' book ;)

This is the publication order. Some people prefer chronological but for a first go-through I kind of agree with this list. Second read through in time order is fun too!
