Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 154

Year 154 AC
This year's gathering is huge.  Representatives from the monks of Ariella come to sign a treaty with the mages of Dragon's Fire to share knowledge for the betterment of all of Martapa.  A wall has been built around the town of Gathering proper and a small keep is set in case there is any incursions from ogres in the years that the Great Gathering does not occur. Each of the major cities promises to staff the city with a score of men each and provide for their keep and pay so the city can remain safe since it has become so important to the entirety of Taina.

A score of lycanthorpes are spotted in the south west region of Taina.  Priests of Wesa ask for help in taking care of them before they become an issue and over run the nearby villages.  Because they are not organized like some churches, the priests of Wesa need all the help they can get.

Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) Part 152

Year 152 AC
A new bizarre is set up in Gathering to sell magical items, such as lightstones, heated water basins, even floating carts.  At first mages are not happy to see their magic on sale like typical household items.  But as time passes they see how it makes peoples lives so much easier and take advantage of such market places.

A dragon carcass is found near Karoon and mages and scholars come to the area to study the body and to determine what may have killed the dragon.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 151

Year 151 AC
The Dragon's Fire College sets up small outposts through out Taina, hoping to have a better educated population.  These outposts teach all local children, and adults, how to read and tally numbers. Those who show promise are tutored in more advance subjects.

More permanent roads begin to go in between the major cities of Taina.  A lot of the work is done by mages, paid for by a merchant tax, but some work is done by workers, which helps the economy.

Expanded Time For After Chaos (AC) Part 150

Year 150 AC
A new type of magic spell is discovered.  This type of magic allows translocation of people over long distance.  Only a few can perform the magic and the magic takes a lot out of the user.  More study is going to occur at the Dragon's Fire, since this type of magic will be very helpful if wide spread.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 149

Year 149 AC
An ice storm passes between the Dwarven Islands and Taina mainland, causing the bay to freeze in spots enough for people to actually walk the miles between the Islands and mainland.  There are impromptu celebrations and trading and though the dwarves like to be pretty isolationist, they enjoy the small trading and get togethers.   Several trading pacts are made, but mostly it's just a social opportunity brought to them by the weather.
