Cliffside weyrs
Sirocco mesa rises up from the sands; an imposing plateau of rose-hued rock warmed by the morning sun. The eastern face is pitted with numerous ledges, and it is here the dragons of Sirocco roost. The summit also serves as a useful vantage point; the highest ledges afford a view across the desert essential in spotting the approach of thread.

Weyrbowl
The summit of Sirocco mesa serves as the Weyrbowl, where herdbeasts are kept and grazed, and training takes place. It is a large, flat plateau of land topped with sparse grass and the occasional tree. Water has to be transported up to fill troughs from which the herdbeasts can drink.

Hatching Sands
Sirocco's hatching grounds can be found just beneath the surface to the mesa's summit, where the rock naturally forms a wide, shallow cave filled with fine white sand. One might think the relative exposure of these sands would be detrimental to the eggs that are laid here. On the contrary, the only creatures who can reach the summit and the cave just beneath it are the dragons themselves, and so the warm, predator free environment is perfect for safe incubation of eggs. Candidates wishing to approach the grounds are transported to the summit by willing riders and their dragons.

The Upper Caverns
Sirocco mesa boasts a natural cave system. Here the Weyrfolk have eked out a home and shelter from the harsh desert climate. The warren of tunnels extend far underground; smooth cool walls that terminate in spacious rooms. Ongoing efforts from mining whers continually grow and expand this unseen portion of the Weyr to accommodate a steadily rising population.

The Mines
Below Sirocco mesa, the labours of whers and their handlers continue to expand the network of tunnels and caverns. In these caverns there are rich deposits of firestone, subterranean lakes, and other treasures waiting to be uncovered.

Sirocco Hold
The primary Hold is approximately half a day’s ride from the Weyr Mesa. It is located at the base of sparse mountain range, over what remains of an ancient riverbed. The river has since moved underground, with the pure waters forming a series of oases that Holdless have used for quite some time. Its residents are largely Holdless, though a strong presence among many crafts has afforded this dusty trader’s town a ‘capital’ designation. It is the keystone in the network that is slowly forming to support, and be protected by, the revolutionary ideals of Sirocco Weyr.

The brightly colored tent city that had served as a Holdless encampment in the Interval has given way to stone structures better suited to Northern tastes. Still, the original culture of the Holdless inhabitants has ensured that the Hold is still brightly colored with painted shutters, stunning mosaic tiles, and an intricate architectural style as different from the sterile North as the makers can convince residents to inhabit. Up on the ridge, a large watch tower serves a dual purpose – to watch for Thread, caravans, and possible raiders, but also as a place to watch the Stars. Master Qasiim and his teachings left quite an impression on someone, and he and his students are always welcome.

Southern Runner Hold
A secondary cothold has also sprung up in the wake of Northerners willing to eke out what existence they can in the shadow of the new Weyr. Though the residents claim to be of Keroonian stock, the shocks of red and blonde hair speak of Ruathan and possibly Telgar origins. Presently they number less than thirty, but with already established Holdless caravans constantly passing through and leaving behind pioneers in addition to trade goods, the ‘cothold’ is expected to grow explosively. Beastcrafters are numerous, which is little surprise given the wide expanse of grazing land that hugs the fringes of the Siroccan Desert. Herdbeasts and runners of Keroonian and Ruathan breeding are growing in numbers, but there is talk of Southern adapted breeds in development.

The Seahold
A seahold, little more than a small cothold with a shaky craft affiliation, has taken root on the northern coast of the desert. The inhabitants came south seeking freedom, and they chose their location with the intent to leverage some form of protection from Thread. How remains to be seen, but the crusty sons and daughters of the sea are nothing if not stubborn – and it is hard to argue with the great big nets of tasty fish they are willing to tithe.
