Year 103 AC
A young man named Theran Gryphon presents himself to the monastery in Ariella to learn of languages, strategy and history. The monks take him in, though he is very young, twelve at the time, and began his tutelage.
A bumper crop of food is raised this year and trade begins again, with some hesitation. People are still very "clannish" and look warily at any strangers after the killing of the year before.
