|In the fourteenth Turn after the Ancients escaped from the Southern Continent, the first Weyr, Fort, was established to house the ever growing dragon population under the careful guidance of Sean and Sorka Connell, Fort's first Weyrleaders.
Fort is the largest of the Weyrs with its bowl being over a mile in length. The Weyr itself has two distinct features: at the northeast rim is the jagged 'Tooth Crag', while at the opposite end lies the remnants of the ancient landslide which disrupts Fort's unusual oblong bowl. Fort Weyr is design to house a maximum of 500 dragons along with their riders and other residents of the Weyr.
Thousands of Turns after it was first established, Fort still holds fast to the traditions and the honor of being Pern's first Weyr.
