Holding Territories




Fort Hold


Fort Hold is located to the West of the Northern Continent, is Pern's oldest Hold. It is the location to which the Pern colonists evacuated upon abandoning the Southern Continent ten Turns after arriving on Pern. Colonists Sallah Telgar and Tarvi Andiyar discovered the cave network. In Pern's early history, the colonists established a College at Fort Hold which evolved into the Harper Hall during the Second Pass. Fort's industry revolves around the seacraft, healercraft, harpercraft, agriculture, etc. Grain fields with alfalfa, wheat and fruit orchards growing apples, plums, pears and several varieties of berries are common. Fort makes a salty cheddar, Sitlton, and a few soft cheeses for spreading on bread. Mushrooms, peanuts, river grains, and soybeans, legumes, tubers, swedes, parsnips, fingeroots, sugar beets and turnips are also harvested here.
