A road building project between Karoon and Sunvale to help promote aid, trading and protection between the two cities begins.  They know it will take years to finish, even with magic, but both cities think it's a good idea.

Sea caves are found in North western Taina.  Inside is a small band of sea elves and envoys are sent to set up trade and rights to the area.  Negotiations will be tricky since few speak the sea elf language and few sea elves speak the common tongue.

This year the largest loom ever is constructed.  What special about this loom isn't that it is so large, which does make creating fabric and tapestries easier in a sense, but that it is operated in such a manner it is faster to weave with then older looms.  Orders go out for this new loom, making the inventor very rich.

Ogres appear in the north attacking settlements and stealing livestock.  Many lives are lost and revenge attacks are planned.

Year 167 AC
Candle makers create metal molds for the first time, allowing for candles to be made in mass and not have to be tapers which take a long time to make and are very unstable.  This makes mages and priests very happy since they have more stable candles to work on their writing with paper.

Dragon's Fire College accepts several members from the monastery of Ariella to their ranks.  The idea is to exchange ideas and knowledge with their counterparts.  Not all are happy with the acceptance, but no one complains outright.

Expanded Timeline for After Chaos (AC) Part 164

Year 164 AC
The year of the gathering has arrived.  This year it is so big it spills out of the city onto the plain to the east.  Literally hundreds of acres are covered with tents and small camps.  So big is the gathering that small trading areas spring up all around the camping areas, so people don't have to go far.  Mages and druids are used to bring in enough water for everyone, and everburning rocks are in hot demand for cooking since there is little wood to go around.
