Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 280

Year 280 AC
Minstrels, traveling from Landshire to the Tsalagi Mountains, stop at all the major, and not so major, cities, spreading rumors of a long lost king from the Chaos Wars coming back to life.  All anyone has to do is find his tomb and bring a magical gem that was taken by the dragons long ago.  The rumors include that the long lost king has rooms and rooms of treasure buried with him and will be very grateful if he is brought back to life.

For the GM, there is a tomb in the area the minstrels are mentioning in their rumors and most likely the huge complex does have treasure, but the minstrels are not doing so to save some long lost hero.  They are hoping that someone will raise the "hero" so the vampire can make them vampires as well.  They don't think they can make it through all the wards and traps, and that is why they are hoping some adventuring group will do that part for them, with them following behind.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 278

Year 278 AC
Pirates swarm the eastern waters, attacking dwarven merchants and mainland merchants alike.  There is little in the way of any navy, (from either place), so mercenary merchants are arming to try and take out the pirates, as well as fill the niche of protection for merchant ships which can't arm up.  Many merchants take to going in large groups with protection, which makes things more expensive, but makes it more likely they will reach their port.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 275

Year 275 AC
The mages of Dragon's Fire begin to work on the magic of translocation in a serious fashion.  Merchants and leaders of armies fund it, which brings controversy, but the mages try to find a way to do so in earnest.  If this magic can be mastered, without killing the mage, travel would become much easier, as would trade.
