Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) Part 258

Year 258 AC
This year's winter is especially harsh.  Feet of snow fall in areas that normally see no or very minimal snow.  Many starve, for they are not prepared for such snow levels for so long, and some merely freeze to death, because they are not prepared for the cold for so long.  The priests of Furere say that he is not pleased with his tithes or the working of his priests.  Some say they sacrifice people in hopes of pleasing him and stopping the snap of snow.

Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) Part 257

Year 257 AC
The Battle of Crossriver is the bloodiest battle since before the Chaos Wars.  Thousands of people are killed, many thousands more are wounded.  The acres and acres of blood, fire and destruction is so bad that the wildlife avoids the area.  The battle becomes a truce for the trading between east and west.  The leaders of the the major cities come together and make trade agreements.  There is still tension, but things no longer escalate to killing of caravans.

Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) 255

Year 255 AC
East clashes with west.  The militias attack each others caravans near the center of eastern Taina, so trade becomes nonexistent between the east coast and the Tsalagi Mountains.  The dwarves begin to trade heavily with the eastern cities, while the cities on the west side of the Tsalagi Mountains brave the few passes to trade with the western cities.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 254

Year 254 AC
This year's Gathering does not happen.  With all the death and destruction between west and east, no one is willing to travel to Gathering.  The city is unhappy about the outcome, but blames the eastern cities, not the militias of the west.  Trade is at a complete stand still, but no one wants to stand down.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 253

Year 253 AC
The massacre at Boulder Ridge becomes a rally cry for the western cities.  The small trading stop over is accused of banditry, which they deny, tensions rise, and something sets off the eastern militia causing them to kill most of the men folk, along with a large chunk of women and children.  Caravans from the east are set upon and few, if any, are left alive.  The supplies are taken and used to start building a western militia.

Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) Part 252

Year 252 AC
Caravans heading from the east are being raided by bandits.  Strangely, only merchants carrying items from the eastern cities seem to be affected.  Mercenaries are hired and small forts are put up by the larger cities of the east and manned to stop the bandits.
