Year 58 AC
A total solar eclipse sends many people into a frenzy. Some think it's the end of the world, some think it's a punishment from the Gods. The learned try to point out it's a natural occurrence. This is a strong magical time and many magical items are made at this time and other not so benign activities occur during the eclipse. In some places the people, such as the monks in Ariella, know of it's coming and plan activities around it.
