Based on the beloved Anne McCaffrey series of novels, this title puts the gamer in the role of a young Dragonrider named D'Knor who must find peace with both his bonded dragon companion and the passionate people of his Weyr if he is to aid in the protection of Pern, his home planet.
A strange red "star" on an elliptic orbit periodically passes close enough to Pern to drop "thread;" mindless ribbon-like entities that suck the life from any place they manage to find purchase. To keep the thread-fall from devastating the landscape, the humans and dragons of Pern have learned to form symbiotic relationships, acting as one unit to blast the thread from the sky before it can reach the planet's surface.
But there is more than the thread to threaten young D'Kor in this adventure. The community has recently lost a crucial leader and there is no apparent replacement. Safe navigation through the personal ambition, political maneuvering, and outright despair that tend to fill such a void can call for instinct and agility to rival that required for a flight through the skies of the heaviest thread-fall. D'Kor can interact with hundreds of colorful characters that help to move the story along and who may even pose strategic challenges of their own. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
