Most of this is being constructed from what little is written about the Charter in the books. It will be added to gradually. If anyone has any suggestions for alterations or additions, please PM them to Kes.

It should also be noted that much of what is listed here involves the traditional duties of Hold, Hall, and Weyr - which are changing in the permanent absence of Thread.

Bonus points for anyone who does research on Greek history and governmental form (which is what the Pernese governmental form is based on!).


Weyr Duties and Guidelines


Duties of the Weyr


  • Protect the people from Thread


Guidelines for Weyr Relations


  • Weyrs must be neutral in all matters
  • Once per year, the Weyrleader Council (consisting of the Weyrleaders and Weyrwomen) meet to discuss occurrences within the previous year and make Weyr-wide decisions/changes as needed (to curriculum, duties, etc.); a subsequent meeting, the Conclave, which includes the Lords and Masters Councils, is held to set the cost of goods for the coming year


Duties of the People of Pern to the Weyrs


  • Assist in the production of agenothree (HNO3)
  • Train and work with the groundcrews during Fall
  • Succor dragons and riders in need
  • Allow the Search dragons to choose youngsters to Stand as Candidates for dragon Hatchings


Hold Duties and Guidelines


Duties of the Hold


  • Ensure protection and education of the Hold's population
  • Provide tithe to the Weyrs, not to exceed 25% of the Hold's tithe during a Pass or 10% during an Interval
  • Inform and prepare the holdfolk for Threadfall


Guidelines for Hold Relations


  • Holds are autonomous within their own borders, providing the Lord Holder obeys the tenets of the Charter
  • Lord Holders who violate the rights of their holders under Charter can be impeached only by a unanimous vote of the Conclave of Lord Holders
  • A holder's lands may not be confiscated without a proper trial by a jury of the holder's peers
  • Expansion of Lands
    • Lands can only be expanded as much as the owning land holder can care for (including the hiring of other holders)
    • Lord Holders' children can expand their fathers' lands by up to 75 acres
  • Once per year, the Lords Council (consisting of Lord and Lady Holders) meets to discuss events of the previous year and make changes as needed a subsequent meeting, the Conclave, which includes the Leaders and Masters Councils, is held to set the cost of goods for the coming year
  • The title of Lord Holder will follow the Bloodline of the original Holder unless/until the Conclave of Lord Holders rule during a trial that the Bloodline successor is unfit to lead; all members of the Bloodline have first consideration for the seat of Lord Holder before a new Bloodline may be considered
  • To become a major Hold, a group of holdings must prove to be self-sufficient and be capable of providing basic needs to its workers and holders

Duties of the People of Pern to the Halls


  • Parents pay for the education of their children at the Halls to offset the expense of housing them
  • Knotted Crafters have immunity in the Holds and Weyrs


Rights of the People of Pern


  • Freedom of movement
