Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) Part 114

Year 114 AC
The Grand Gathering has some heated words thrown about during the duration of the gathering.  A mage supposedly killed a leader in northern Taina, so many of the leaders say that the mages should be banned, or regulated, or under the control of the leaders of the area they are in.  The mages object, obviously, though they do not know, for sure, if a mage truly killed this leader that many had never heard of.  Many of the mages and their supporters believe it is a few who want to control mages that have set up the unprovable scenario, not a true crime.

Year 106 AC

The Grand Gathering is two years later this time because of the great famine.  Thousands of people come to make treaties, even the elves and dwarves, to trade and to just see all the sites.  The city, now dubbed Gathering, is run by the year round residents, around three thousand, and ruled by only the city council, no king or ruler.  The biggest ruckus is a group of barbarians from the western coast who wreck an inn and burn down a trading post.
