UbiSoft Dragon Riders Web Site:
    Welcome to the World of Pern...

    Pern is a world in the process of discovery. Millennia ago mankind first set foot on this barren planet having travelled through the stars from earth, light years distant. The first colony thrived until an unseen attack from a parasitic life form left them desolate and stranded. The enemy fell from a planet that passed by Pern every 200 years and came to be known as Thread.

    Fearing for their future the colony moved into the dormant volcanoes of the North and began work upon a system of Thread defence. Thus were spawned the Dragons, genetically modified from a much smaller indigenous life form known as the Fire Lizard.

    Over time it was discovered the Dragons could psychically bond with their riders, becoming soul mates for life. With their technology shattered and all hope gone, mankind forged a new society where the wonders of science became the artefacts of the past. The Dragonriders became the protectorates of Pern as humanity found a new home in the stars...

    And that is where our story starts, with a young Dragonrider named D'kor who will discover a threat more potent than Thread is rife on Pern, unleashed by a new and deadlier enemy.
