Best Online Pern Resources
I've searched far and wide...These are the most useful sites
I've found for checking up on information whilst reading or writing.
Elrhan's Pern Enclyclopedia
Elrhan is working on a very detailed guide to Pern, organized by
alphabetical entries. The two of us both take notes on the Pern stories, and review
and comment on what the other has written. Ehlran's already posting the notes as
they're finished, while I'll eventually reorganize everything into a more descriptive
guide. So far his Pern Encyclopedia covers Red Star Rising/Dragonseye, part of Dragonflight, Survey:
P.E.R.N.c, and The Girl Who Heard Dragons.
Elrhan's Pern Genealogies
As a professional genealogist, Elrhan is particularly well
suited to research and publish the details of Pern's most prominent bloodlines.
Who's Who in
9th Pass Pern
Sue Ann has a great dragondex for 9th Pass Pern, organized by the location of people.
Use her site to find out who lived in Bitra Hold, or the Smithcrafthall, or
the Plants of Pern
Becki must have spent countless hours compiling and correlating all this
data. If you ever come across the name of a plant in one of the novels that's not
familiar, just check for it here to find out all known information.
to The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern, 1st Edition
The first edition doesn't have one, so Kynn made her own, and was nice enough to
put it where the rest of us can use it! I've found it useful to lookup tidbits of
info which the table of contents doesn't help me find, such as where it mentions that Camo
is Robinton and Silvina's son. The 2nd edition does have an index. If you want
to know other ways the two editions differ, see my
This guide covers a wide range of information and common questions of Pern.
It's a good read for Pern fans everywhere, whether you're interested in the
newsgroup discussions or not.
Healing and Genetics Info
Jenaith has a wealth of great information on Dragon anatomy and healing, and
most notably a great guide to how the genetics of Pernese dragon color and sex
inheritance might work, genetically speaking.
Comprehensive guide to cooking on Pern. Crafthall belongs to PernMUSH, but
most info here is follows strict Pern canon from the books. And they have
recipes for klah & bubbly pies!
A fairly comprehensive guide to the details of clothing,
fabrics, dyeing, and other knowledge of Pern's Weavercrafthall. This crafthall
belongs to PernMUSH.
